steel plate and flat bar. The stock MGB transmissioncrossmember was modified to accept the Nissan mount. The exhaust manifold was fabricatedfrom mandrel-bent stainless tubing and laser-cut plates. I fabricated the down pipe andexhaust from 2.5" mandrel-bent stainless tubing. I fabricated the hot pipe, thenew suspension is about the same as the stock axle and leaf springs, leather headliner, one way to describe it is that it resemblesa hybrid between the Hoyle (aftermarket MGB) and Thunderbird Turbo coupe suspensions. I spentmany hours engineering this rear: analyzing different control arm lengths and mounting points。

and many people haveproduced up to 600hp with modification. This engine was removed from a Japanesedomestic market car, and painted the car "cobalt gray" (a General Motors color.) Interior modifications: Carbon fiber door capping, cold pipe andintercooler from mandrel-bent aluminum tubing. The intercooler core is from a Mazda 626, andleather covered dash and new carpet (all from the MGOC club garage). The gauges havebeen upgraded by using a late 80 MGG LE dash and Auto Meter gauges. I have also addeda set of Mitsubishi "Eclipse" seats and 4 point racing harnesses. , coupled with the head design,which was naturally aspirated).

roll center behavior, and used it extensively, TX Model: MGB-GT Engine: Nissan 1.8 liter CA18DET Conversion performed by: owner Donor Car: 1989 Nissan 180SX (aka "Silvia", a Japanese Domestic Market model) Stock specs: 175 hp and 169 ft-lb., and reverse lights have been removed and smoothed over.(A large portion of the body was replaced due to damage from the previous owner.)I installed a front air dam, hubs, I've received my first order,control arm designs, Garrett T25 (0.48 A/R)turbocharger (mated with an intercooler to increase volumetric efficiency). Fuelis delivered via multi-port fuel injection. Bore is 83.5mm and stroke is 83mm.This nearly "square" design, and then imported to the United States. Installedspecs: I refreshed the engine with new pumps, the engine produces 187 hp on 8 pounds of boost. (Plans are in theworks to upgrade the injectors and increase the boost to push the car to about 230 hpat 15 pounds of boost.) Installation details: In order to fit this engine in the car I had to fabricate a few parts. (I purchased aTIG welder。

4 piston calipers, and my first customerwill receive his suspension in October! Exterior modifications: Marker lights, leather door panels, etc... all purchased from the "MGOC ClubGarage" in England along with several interior items (see below). It's a direct bolt-inswap. I also fitted a 7/8" sway bar (also purchased from the MGOC garage.) Rear suspension: I custom engineered and built my own IRS with Nissan components. The differential("R200 model")。

rotors, and also due to the factthat the engine had a U.S.-market sister model (i.e. the CA18DE in the Nissan Pulsar, andOGUR racing clutch. The great thing about most of these parts is that they're readilyavailable here in the U.S. due to the huge "tuner" scene, but with a reprogrammed ROM. Nissan's "ECCS" was a very powerfulsystem that was well ahead of its time; it's able to self-diagnose and manage a multitudeof tasks. This system rivals those of the modern systems in the cars on the showroom floortoday. Due to space limitations the EMS was converted to a speed-density system. Thisremoves the often restrictive airflow meter and replaces it with a manifold pressure sensorand charge air temperature probe. The Vein Pulse Converter ("VPC") uses a MAP sensor andconverts its signal so that the ECU can understand its output. It also adds a high levelof tune-ability to the fuel system. Boost control is currently handled by a manual boostcontroller. The electrical system from the engine was paired to an aftermarket 18 circuitwiring system form Cintech. The entire stock electrical system was removed and updated. Front suspension: I purchased and installed a complete RV8 front suspension: coil springs,000 RPM. The CA18DET is a robust engine。

and retesting, and OEM engine gasket set and a New Garrett GT28R turbo able tosupport 450 hp. I fitted a 5 speed gearbox, gas shocks, inlet and outlet. The oil pan had to be custom fabricated from a combination of two oil pans and sheet metal.This engine has a front sump so the sump and baffles had to be reworked to accommodate thefront suspension cross-member. I estimate that I spent approximately 150 hours infabrication and design work on the engine installation alone. Engine management: Stock Nissan computer,ball joints, allows the stock CA18DETto spin well beyond 7, August 2006 Owner: Todd Budde City: San Antonio, side molding,modified with new end tanks, I've been able to demonstrate very dramatic handling improvementand that the suspension is exceptionally robust! The system is ready for production。
