Nope, I modified the manifold and ran the crank case breather/vent system. If you go back a while in this thread you will find details on it. The catch can just kept filling up every so often otherwise (venting to atmosphere)F0xy. When you had the M50 manifold on, way back when, did you run it with a catch can in the end or did you ditch that setup? If you did, would you mind explaining how you plumbed it in? I know the crankcase breather goes into the tank, but where to the other hoses connect?
So the engine build was finished, various other parts fitted such as new crank seals, water pump, etc. Before fitting I sorted my current 2.5" exhaust - I wanted to run the centre silencer at the back, which was the bigger one, and ditch the smaller silencer. I'm still not sure if 2.5" is going to be a restriction, but we'll see before investing in 3".
-3.75 Camber, tiny amount of toe out total, probably a couple of minutes maximum.Do you have the alignment setup you have currently? Im doing some track days with my e36 and only have rallye background
Yes, I was previously using an M52 trigger wheel, and it lined up. Yes, you would have an issue if you used standard management, but with standalone you can set up the trigger pattern so the reset tooth (60-2) is elsewhere. Your BASE timing angle will be different to stock, but it does not matter, as you will configure the ECU to suit. I now run an ATI Superdamper, which has a trigger wheel on it, based on an M52 pattern. More details on that in the update below....Hi f0xy,
I've stumbled across this this thread on and off over the years, and i have to say, it is absolutely brilliant so much useful info! Especially loved your use of the Ras-Pi that was dope.
I'm actually in the process of dropping an M50B30 into my E30 built from an M50B25-NV but one thing I have noticed is that the TDC mark on the NV trigger wheel doesn't line up with the TDC of the M54 Crank. I used an M54 flywheel and the locking pin to time up the engine and then after i re-drilled the locking pin hole in my lightened e30 flywheel using the M54 flywheel as a template.
Here is a picture of where TDC is on the M50NV Trigger wheel when bolted up to the M54 Crank, i drilled a hole and filled it with a bit of paint.
Is this to be expected? I don't think it's going to be a problem because I'm using Megasquirt so the trigger wheel settings are configurable but i guess if i was trying to use the standard ECU id be in trouble right? Also i noticed in your previous posts your trigger wheel looked to time up to TDC just fine, is that because you are using an M52 trigger wheel???
Hopefully in the next few days there will be a bit more!can’t wait for more instalments
Will try and keep on top of it from now on...!Always worth a read this thread!
For the past 18 months or so (before the Spa crash) I ran a 'servo delete', with twin AP master cylinders and a modified pedal. Cylinders were mounted in the same place as the servo, with a bias bar, you can probably see it in some of the pictures above. It worked fine, but you have to be right with the calculations to ensure the pedal isn't terrible. I sold that set up some time ago, as I am now running a Tilton floor mounted pedal box (more to come on this) with AP cylinders. We run the same setup in the Civic and it is night and day difference - obviously totally track based.What Mc setup are you running? I plan to be on clio3 brembos and m3 rears and would like to delete The booster, also, how do you like The kaaz? Stock used lsds are Getting too expensive
