2015 SEMA: Wrapup


GarrettI'm a sucker for most things with an SR20 under the hood, but especially when they're wrapped up in this sexy Datsun SPL311 roadster displayed at the Garrett booth, owned by Jon Frampton and built by K.R.D Kevin Roadster Designs. What happens when you stick an SR20VE head on a DET block, add Manley rods, a K1 Technologies 92mm crankshaft, and custom CP 8.5:1 pistons?  You get a 2.2L with some moxie! Machine work was done by Millenium Motorsports and parts by G Spec Performance.
GarrettThe engine is mated to a 6 speed transmission from an S15 Silvia. All was connected by Wiring Specialties and tuned with a MegaSquirt3 system by Chris Allen. The VVL kicks in based on boost instead of rpm, making it more responsive. This setup only has about 30 miles on it right now but power estimates are for 450-500rwhp around 20 lbs of boost. Turbo goodies include a Garrett GTX 2867R, Turbo Smart wastegate and blow off valve, and a 3 inch stainless steel exhaust.
GarrettThe rear end is custom fabricated from an RX-7 with disc brakes built by John Wallumn. Front brakes are from a Z32 300zx. The wheels are 16×7 VTO's. The interior work was completed by Bill Dunn. Clean, functional, and sporty- a great combination.
TurboneticsThe Turbonetics TNX-165 housing is the size of Kojima's head (literally AND figuratively!). 
The BorgWarner booth featured a number of turbo applications including this 2JZGTE 3.0L inline 6 for the MK4 Toyota Supra Turbo built by Twins Turbo. These are from the B1 series with aluminum bearing cartridges, built in BOV's and integrated wastegates, Gamma Ti turbine wheel and shaft, and stainless steel v-band inlet housings. Three different size options are offered: 6258 good for 900-950whp, 6758 for 1000-1050whp, or 7163 for 1100-1200+ whp. 
Borg WarnerAnother BW offering for the Nissan 3.5 and 3.7L engines with OEM style fitment and turbos rated to 500hp though I can't overlook the “Infinity” spelling. Keep it selfish- all I's in Infiniti people!
