Cammed, soon to be turboed svt build

I've been building this car for a few years. It originally was supposed to be a stock turbo car. Well that never happened. I started going buying things and one thing led to another.

The car is a 02 zx3, started out as a bare bones 2.0 with the auto tragic. I blew up two of those and found a Svt conversion for a good deal. I went that route for a few years before wanting more.

The motor consists of:
Je 9.6:1 pistons
Cosworth rods
All arp hardware
Clevite h series main and rod bearings
Cfm billet oil pump
Cat cams turbo cams
80# injectors
A walbro 400lph pump, possibly duals
Tru bendz 3" exhaust
Cometic .066 head gasket
Full port and polish
Vct delete with adjustable cam gears

The drive train has a torsen, 275's for the front, Lakewood traction bars.

Still need:
Turbo (gtx3076 with a tial housing)
Manifolds
Catch can


I'm sure I'm forgetting some. Fernando will be tuning it. Tonight I got the head bolted on and torqued down along with the cams. That's where I called it a night and how it sits right now.

It's timed now, the belt looks like it should be a little tighter though, it is don't by the book though so I don't know. I've rolled it over two complete revolutions and everything seems good.

Looks good to me, the tension is going to have some give to it by design, as long as everything is lined up after cranking it over then your all good to go. Though I'd turn it over numerous myself just to be sure, that's what I do when I do timing belts. Two rotations is never enough for me.

The bad thing about performance cams is that for N/A, it need lots of overlap to generate lots of power. If supercharged, the N/A cams would work great there too. Turbos however are finicky when it comes to stuff like that. Lots of overlap causes excessive EGT, and that has a tendency to melt turbine blades. Not saying it will happen, but it is something that should be discussed with the engine builder or tuner. I see that you are using turbo grinds, so this should be less of a concern for you, but someone else who is reading this build thread for their own build should be aware of this.

N/a will only be to break it in cause I need a car to drive now and until I can gather the rest of the turbo parts. It was never meant to be a n/a motor, just what life has dealt me right now and I'm making the best of it.

I dont agree , boost is boost , the engine/cams dont know if the 10psi is from a SC or a turbo so boost with excessive overlap issue would be the same with both
Lots of overlap allows the fresh incoming air/fuel to leave through an open exh valve more then its an issue with EGT , EGT is easly controlled with a tune where overlap isnt but can be delt with some with adjusting the cam gears to lessen the overlap , I still prefer stock cams with boost for the street/350hp
