Default CXRacing Single Turbo "Street Car"

My old thread kind of got lost and a lot has changed since the last post I made so I figured it was time to start a new one. The car will be seeing lots of track duty and a couple of trips on public roads per year so according to an accredited "Corvette Historian" my car is a street car since it's not a tube chassis, ***** to the wall "racecar." The goals for my build are 9 second 1/4 mile passes and 800-900whp on E85 but I'll also be running some 1/2 mile events once I get all the testing and shakedown completed.

Motor is a forged LS2 done by Mike Van Paris at the Race Engine Shop using K1 Rods, Wiseco Pistons and AFR 205 Heads. I've recently switched the CX Racing C6 hot side and I'll be fabricating my own up-is-downpipe, cold side piping, radiator/intercooler mounts and I'm sending my drivers fuel tank to Brett to have dual Walboro 450's installed in the next few weeks. The entire setup is run by a Haltech Elite 2500, Dual Wideband controller, I/O12 Expansion Module and a Fore Innovations FC3 to power the pumps. Setup will be tuned by Brett while I learn the ropes.

The plan is to get her up and running by spring time, compete over the summer and then either paint or wrap the entire car next winter.

Thoughts, criticisms, and suggestions are welcomed.

Build threads are always enjoyable. Looking forward to your "numbers", i.e., time slips from the quarter mile and speed slips from the half mile.

Will FIC 127ís supply enough E85 towards upper end of your HP goal ? Iíve got a large frontmount treadstone innercooler on my car from when it was on 93. Had I built my car from scratch for E85, chances are I wouldnít use an innercooler. My innercooler blocks a tremendous amount of cool fresh air from my radiator and under the hood. I got my temps under control now but initially they were higher than I liked. Iíd ask Brett what he thinks about ditching the innercooler on E85...

The 127s should be enough with a bit of headroom left over, if not I can go bigger. I talked to him awhile ago and based on that conversation I ditched the meth kit and kept the IC but Im still considering an AWIC to replace the current one. I have the rad and IC stood straight up with a few inches between them and it will all have ducting directing the air from the openings on the front into the IC/Rad.

Cross beam is completely hollowed out, IC support bar is welded straight to the frame rails. Radiator support is just like the IC support but is welded to 4”x1/4” steel plates that are bolted to the OEM rad cradle locations, radiator is sitting in RSM radiator mounts clamped to 1 1/4” DOM.

Dual spal 10” fans with a fully enclosed shroud.

Catch cans. PCV can from the valley cover to the intake and a draft can off both valve covers

Wilwood prop valve and bracket, just needed a slight bend to clear the inner fender. May replace the front line to clean it up but as of right now it fits and seals so Im not terribly concerned.

Gotcha . It’s really close to the way mine is set up. I’ve got the biggest aftermarket radiator that would fit side to side and it’s mounted straight up & down. I also cut into my crash bar to mount my innercooler in a similar fashion. Also, I’ve got the twin spal fans which move an incredible amount of air. Additionally, I built an air deflector under the front bumper to direct air in front of the radiator. All together it cools pretty well. Naturally all the hot parts are wrapped and I’ve got a turbo blanket. The only reason I asked about the injectors is because I’ve got FIC 142’s running around 80% at only 700 RWHP on E85. Base Fp set at 58lbs.

I actually used your build as a reference for some of what Iíve done. I had Brett spec the injectors for me so hopefully they will cut it but if not I will just step up. Plan is to attempt an undertray that seals up the entire underside of the engine bay to the front bump with ducts to channel air from the foglight openings, license plate opening and brake ducts to the radiator. Weíll have to see how that goes.

Thanks for the offer but at this point I just need to get it running with what Iíve got and go enjoy it. The car has been down for over 2 years because I keep upgrading the same stuff over and over again as the goal moves higher and higher.

Nice build! I too am using the CX kit but much smaller goals due to financial reasons lol. I had to cut my crash bar too and welded up new mounts for the IC and rad. Looking great!
