He is in Yorkshire & I have a feeling this will be a very quick conversion. He is the tick tack man & works at 300mph

Matt started this forum & has done loads & I mean loads of conversions, Vauxhall 1.6 8V, 1.6 16v, 2.0 16V, V6. Numerous Vtec including Type R in standard roundnose, various Rover. Suzuki GTI, I am sure some have been missed.
He has also helped so many people on here with help & advice, without him I for one would not have completed my first one. 18 months after joining this club I am on my 3rd & I owe a hell of a lot to Matt.
He has not done a conversion for himself in a long time, so this is a much awaited project.

Jerry

Ok guys , its been a long time since i have done a project myself .. been helping others / real life / Mum (RIP) etc etc ..

so .. after much dreaming about what to do i ended up with the 2 litre 8v vauxhall engine , a turbo will be added to this to push up the bhp.

First was the use of my sisters old cav sri ... :



Engine was removed today :



This will all be going into a clubman that my dad had laying around , pretty solid and will just need some sills (so my dad says)

I am aim to do some sprints this year , so a roll cage was needed



some wheels

ok , have been thinking turbo for awhile , and have looked at lots of vauxhall engines in allspeed subframes ...

One of my problems in using a std allspeed subframe was room for the turbo down pipe ( 3 inch) , especially down below the sump.

so I ordered a custom subframe which had a VTEC tie bar setup on it , anyone that knows subframes will spot the difference :



This picture shows my extra room :



Ok i am still learning about turbos .. so i am sure i will buy / make lots of wrong things .. but thats half the fun ! lol

picked up a cast turbo manifold ( thanks rich) but arrived broken . might not use it anyway as its for a T25 , waiting on laser cutters to make me a flange , and might have a go at making a new manifold






I will be running a F18W with hydro clutch

Turbo , set at 8psi as standard , but will go to 25psi :
