      100%!

      Which 200tw tire are you going with? I've heard longevity wise, the RS4s are fantastic. Slightly slower than the RE-71R but can go lapping for days.

      Yoko just released the the A052, and Falken with the RT660 too but I don't know much about them yet.

      I donít know yet actually. Iíve run RE-71Rís on the ZL1 for AutoX, but they get pretty slippery without many heat cycles.

      Also, if you're going to be sticking with the stock seat for a bit, I highly recommend a CG Lock to help keep you in place.

      That's true. I've heard on track you can go about 4-5 laps before they get greasy. I ended up getting a set to try at time attack this year so I'll see how well they last on a stock alignment for an 850.

      Good suggestion on the CG lock. Iíll check it out.

      Had a little time to mess around in the garage tonight and the turbo internals are going out for balancing tomorrow.

      Heard back from Aaron and decided against COP. Want to keep it looking mostly stock and the VVT solenoid means rerouting fuel lines.

      Now that thatís deuces I can move forward drilling the cams and getting it back together.

      No need to drill the cams; take a look at my thread for a cleaner solution.

      I ran my CoP wiring in the main harness.....you would have no idea it's not factory if you didn't know. I'm not sure what that has to do with VVT but regardless you can use a RN fuel line/rail which solves the aesthetic and routing issues of fuel lines going over the top of a RN engine.

      Same, VVT wiring in the main harness and impossible to see. Fuel lines can be persuaded around and over or next to the VVT, Iíve seen a couple different solutions that all look pretty clean. Replacing the fuel lines with braided flexible line is another option. There was an RN swap thread from 6-7 years ago that had a few different options for fuel lines laid out with photos- Iíll dig and see if I can find those images for reference.

      Would *highly* recommend COP- it cleans up the engine bay so much and also creates some room over on the left side of the engine for intake, etc should you decide to get rid of factory air filter housing.

      Are you talking about the guy in CA with the black 850R? I looked at that and was concerned with the vaccum line all the way to the fuel tank being a problem and Aaron said the same. Fortunately the 97-98 x70s have the FPR at the base of the firewall so that setup can be easily adapted to a 850.

      Are you taking about CJís car? I donít think he has an RN motor in his car? Maybe youíre talking about Calvinís car?

      Anyhow, I suppose it comes down to running the later returnless style or not, also wondering if youíre running the VVT, or if you are just unplugging. A block off plate would clear up some room if youíre not using the VVT, in which case you could notch the timing cover and run them up and over.

      No not CJ's car. There was a guy on VS maybe 5 or so years ago who had a 99 T5M that got totaled and used it to manual swap a black 850R estate he got to replace it. Pics are all broken now but he swapped over everything in the fuel system. Not that I am endorsing that idea because Aaron and I had the same concerns with the idea of a 12' or so vacuum line. I think the 98 FPR setup is a better way to solve the same problem and requires minimal adaptation.

      Iím running a return style with a 4bar regulator. No VVT and planning to notch the cover.

      850R track car transformation

      Something Iím trying to figure out being new to P80 mods.... why is there a vacuum line going back to the tank for the FPR? On my car the FPR is mounted to the rail.

      The regulator in my fuel rail currently is Bosch 0280160554 and will be replaced by a Bosch 0280160260 in the same location. Vacuum / boost line goes directly to the intake.

      Please let me know if Iím missing something. Lots of experience converting dead-end systems to retune., but I might be missing something here.

      Thanks.

      the FPR is at the rail on 850s and at the base of the firewall on -98 x70.

      So whatís the vacuum line routed back to the tank?

      Sorry JaredR, I guess my question wasnít clear.

      Whatís the advantage / point of going to a 98 - 00 FPR on the firewall?

      None, unless you want to run a RN fuel rail. If deleting the VVT solves the engine cover/fuel line routing problem, this isn't relevant.

      FPR is only at the firewall on 97-98 x70s. 99+ it's a returnless system.

      got it. Didnít make the connection with the RN fuel rail on these swaps.

      This is how Iíve done the RN rail to a return system on P2Rís, but Iím still learning about P80ís.

      looks pretty similar to the 97-98 x70 setup. Probably not an improvement from the 850 setup from a performance perspective and that is what Aaron will telly you too but I think you'll probably reach maf saturation before the fuel rail becomes a limiting factor

      The DW300 at 55 psi base pressure will be plenty.. not worried about the fuel system. Honestly not worried about the MAF either as it should be capable of flowing 1400kg/s without an issue and I donít think the 19T will push more than 1300kg/s before running out of steam.

      I hope so too because any bigger and I'll need a completely custom intake setup....but some of my friends in Europe tell me they've seen 19T cars reach saturation with 960 MAF housings.

      Whats the plan to keep the VVT hub from flopping around? They go full retard? under load without control IIRC. You could source a 00 NA exhaust cam, spec are the same but it has no VVT hub yet is set up for a vvt capable head.

      This was a lot easier. Want to keep the engine factory sealed as possible. Only planning to pull the pan at this point.

      Thereís very little tuning benefit managing exhaust cam timing outside of emissions and reversion managment. It would be worth the work to manage intake cams timing if it was an option, but itís clearly not with my setup.

      They may be seeing the upper voltage limit of the the sensor itself independently of the housing size.

      Itís simple. Trying to keep this build simple and as old school as possible. I got carried away on my V70R and donít want those complexities on this car.

      Well.... good turbo news and bad turbo news... visited Vargas Turbo today I have the rotating assembly balanced, only to find that the shaft and CHRA core were out of spec for bearing surface roughness. Darn.

      Good news, Vargas specializes in TDO4 hybrids for N54 BMWís and offered me a used, but like new 9 blade Garret profile wheel he calls the Stage 2. He also had a brand new CHRA in stock, so Iím back in business.

      Photos of the stock TD04 and Vargas turbine wheels side by side.

      Think Iíve decided what to do for oil supply, but still considering options.

      Iím told these are original spark plugs, but obviously canít confirm. Crankcase looks consistent with 60K miles though.

      Just popping in to say this looks awesome!

      I'm curious to see what this thing will do. My "brake pads and tires" P2 V70R was good for ~1:53 at Laguna, but it really felt like it was suffering the whole time. I'm sure a light, FWD P80 will be a much better starting point.

      Thanks Albert, Iím hopefully this car will be better under track braking than my V70R was. The V70R was OK with new Hawks on new 2-piece Girodiscís, but I never attempted going deep into 2.
