Yeah looks good dude..
WIll it hopefully or has it been featured in a magazine?

!!!!!
this will be nuts... im predicting HIGH 900s or even flat 1000hp, a V7 running @ 20psi, god help us :D

sir5.7
22-06-05, 12:01
ive told tbs i dont wont the engine fitted in the car if it dont make 1000hp. when it does then we will fit it up

StockyMcStock
22-06-05, 12:04
how do you know the blower will make 20psi? are you just going to change the gearing till it does?

nice engine. cubes + boost = win

Sinister
22-06-05, 12:05
in theory it will **** it in, looking at this chart i got itll make 990hp or so @ only 6700rpm :)
a compressor map for a v7 would be handy tho

sir5.7
22-06-05, 12:11
the pulley on the front has been calculated with the crank pulley etc as well as engine cubes etc to get the right boost for the rpm. the cams a solid roller with close to 700 total lift (thus the need for 4500 converter) so it will see about 7000rpm. capa do have flow charts i think otherwise vortech engineering on there website.

How can you say that when it's still incomplete? I like both cars.

23-06-05, 18:30
Car looks tough mate, congratulations, cant wai tto see the finished product ;)

After looking at your pics of the V7, ive decided that im going to get a V7 as well :p . I rang CAPA today and got some very good prices :cool: . Ive just finished my engine, now i want more, im f**ked :confused: :p

Just to let you guys know, i found out today that my work is going to try and be a distributor for CAPA, so if al goes to plan, we may keep a few Vortech blower kits in stock....fingers crossed :D

Very nice dude:) Seen it when i was at brock shop last;) Is Joe doing all the work?

sir5.7
23-06-05, 21:33
yeah tbs is doing the lot engine wise. 1 wanted 1 shop that could build the motor, fit the motor and tune it so if anything goes wrong theres only 1 place to blame. dont want the builder saying the tuner ***ed it or the tuner saying it was fitting incorrectly etc. also brad is a magician with the welder so all the pipe work come up a treat. will get some engine photos in the next couple of days. as 4 the comparison with mr hdt. well i will take that as a complement. this car finished will be almost atleast to the same level is not better in every aspect except the undercarage as it will be a drag car not a dyno queen that will hold its own in any show and shine. the engine bay is almost identical to mr hdt as all my gear is polished amd braided aswell. other thing tho is mr hdt set up to run 9 possible 8 sec passes. time will tell.

yeah the best and most respectable part of ALL of this is that u are actually going to be hardcore racing it, moreso than show it off... i dont understand dyno queens or showcars with serious hipo engines, wtf is the point! race the things!

24-06-05, 13:39
I dont see what anything has to do with MR HDT, why david85dc even decided to bring it up and compare the 2 cars and then say Branko's idnt anywhere near as good is beyond me. Seems a bit rude to be honest (although im sure david85dc didn't mean anything by it)

As far as I know, every car is built to its owners tastes, so any car should be perfect for what each respectable owner wants out of it...In your opinion it might not be in the same league as MR HDT, which is probably right, as they are both completely different cars, setup for different things (only simialarity is they are both VK's).

The thread is about Branko's car, not about MR HDT, or a comparison between the 2 cars, or any other cars for that matter.

david85dc
24-06-05, 13:57
omigod get over it guys, im not having a dig at sir5.7

like its been said this car isnt complete yet. i just thought id say it looks simular to mr hdt. and both cars look brilliant. simple

im sure when this is finished it will be just as good if not better. mr hdt will never run a 8 or 9 sec pass in the manual. ull kill him sir5.7

(although im sure david85dc didn't mean anything by it)

As I said david85dc, I didn't think you meant anything by it to begin with. Although you didn't mean any harm by it, I just didn't agree with it. Also sorry mate, I didn't agree with what you said, but I think I came back a bit too strong with my comments :( :rolleyes:

money? the cars 90 percent paid for in cash. neil lowe has got a long term evo engine in development thats chewing up the engine dyno for 6-8 weeks. TBS use there engine dyno. if its not off soon we are going to pay a bit more and use the jack brothers engine dyno.

I dunno if you were reffering to MR HDT or not there but just for the record (hate to bring this up again) but MR HDT does get a bit of a thrashing, im 99% sure he had it in the thrashing grass event at summernats '05! Those events have the ability to stuff up bodywork etc pretty hard!

not just him in pareticular... but like that guy that wins HP heroes every year in the vl, so much power yet i dont think he runs it???

just an update. we had dramas on the engine dyno and it lifted the heads so we are stripping it down and trying another technic to hold the heads on. it made mid 600s at 4300rpm and 12psi so 1000 on 20psi and 7000rpm is definately on the cards once we sort out our head sealing dramas
