Default Show me street hot rods and performance cars

Any pics or details? Is drag racing popular in China?

Here is how I would turbo charge a Chinese made vehicle:

Install good aftermarket rods and pistons(forged not cast).

Using a mig welder, fab up the turbo kit.

Go to Google and search for megasquirt. Check out the first 3 results. One is the homepage, one is the main message board, and one is the FAQ site. Basically, it is low cost, universal, programmable fuel injection! Either buy it in parts for a couple hundred bucks and solder it together yourself or for three hundred or so, buy a unit that is already assembled.

Production OEM cars could use this system and save a lot of time and money. Imagine if you could build cars and not have to worry about the EFI side of it because that part is already done and developed.

I wrote about some here http://www.***************************************.com/categor...modifications/ but I can never find out if they've actually modified the engine. People usually go all coy when I ask about the engine, most of the time it seems they did their car up like a racer just to be cool.

But in QD you can often see souped up SouEast Galants, look and sound pretty mean.

megasquirt is a nice idea but you still have to do the calibration work. ideally you need a rolling road and almost nobody has them (china dragon racing have on in Guangzhou but not in shanghai yet). Failing that, there is a useful flat piece of road down at the bottom of luoshan road where it joins the A20 - I know because I spent many long nights running up and down it with my data logging kit.

i think i've said it before, but there are a couple of people in shanghai that will do you a turbo conversion - sam's tuning factory and rob the alchemist. do a 'search all posts by fightingtorque and look in the 'rides' or 'china motor sports' sections.

soueast lioncell is definitely do-able for turbo, and china dragon racing will do you a 1.8 conversion to your vw gol which with ported head etc makes for a pretty swift motor.

if you have a bora 1.8t is should be dead easy to chip it to about 225bhp - do a search on someone like superchips .

cheers,

Gav

I think that's a bit of a simplification of the OEM efi requirements. Durability on something you solder together yourself is not going to meet the standards. Also megasquirt does not (as far as I know) have the kind of adaptive functions, error checking and reporting functions etc that are needed. With megasquirt you calibrate each engine as a one off, this is different to having to develop a calibration that can suit the variations of mass production engines, with necessary safety margin, provision for all conditions and users, durability ........................

Yes you can build cool cars in low volume. Very difficult to make these cars meet modern expectations of durability, reliability and all round useability. As the owner/ previous owner of a few modified cars as well as two Lotus Esprits, I feel I can comment on this. Specialised cars are a love/hate thing. I love them, my wife hates them!
