Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

I'm sticking with low compression, works on my 1G. Itís going to be an identical lower end, except 6 bolt vs 7 bolt. I already have pistons for my build too. It becomes more important to build in detonation margin in the system since Iím using an AEM that lacks and suffers from the ability to react to knock like the factory ECU. The AEM has an insufficient level of knock control algorithms that the stock ECU has. Spool is important but Iím not willing to sell my soul, a good reliable 700WHP setup is what Iím trying to build.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

This afternoon I milled up a fixture for my upcoming manifold fabrication project. Iím doing a top mount v-band manifold for a BB 6266. It bolts down the head flange to reduce warping when I finish weld everything together. I also included a port on each runner for back purging. I also built a jig to cut SS pipes at precise angles to fabricate a v-band merge collector.

For SS welding I used this, its a powder you mix with methanol and put on the back side of each weld with a little brush. You mix it to a not to think, not to thin paste and after your parts are all mocked up I mark and break it all down to put the flux in.

It leaves a black glassy backing where the weld is, then wash out your pipes when you are done. Looking good, this should move out when your done.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Quick update: I fabíd up my merge collector this weekend. Iím still waiting on the v-band to finish it up. I plan on assembling my engine next week. Iím still waiting for the transfer case to come back from jacks before I can get the engine back in the car. I have a couple of weeks off at the end of the month and I plan on wrapping up the motor/trans/t case installation, with a stretch goal of finishing my manifold fabrication then too!!
I bought one of those gas saver lenses and another argon regulator for back purging. I havenít welded much stainless in the past so for a first try I think it turned out awesome.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

I welded the v-band flange to the merge collector last night. V-bands are awesome; they align the turbo to the collector perfectly. I rough ported the collector, still needs refining.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Inspiring, maybe i should quit watching cartoons and practice welding. (not that I can weld anywhere near as good as you)

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Good progress today, assembled the 2.3 motor today. MAP built up my head too, with Kiggley springs and retainers, new MAP SS valves with bronze guides. This thing is going to be fun!

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Just finished cleaning up the merge collector.




Then I modified the crank scraper & windage tray due to the stroked motor.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

What did you use to clean up the merge collector?

Do those motors come stock with a scraper and windage tray?

A die grinder with a flapper wheel. I got the wheels at Northern Tools, 2.50 each. The scraper and windage tray come with the AMS oil pan kit.

Damn things are really scootin' along Mark! Are you going to get the motor back in the car to mock up the rest of the turbo setup or what's the plan?

Thanks, I'm trying trying to learn the ways and I appreciate it.
