Sounds great. Which brand and control are you using?electric waterpump is working well
Very nice shifter system. Do you know by chance how much torque the Quaife is capable of?slowly getting used to the paddleshift and slowly getting used to the car again,steering is still heavy
pierburg cwa400.controlled via pwm on the syvecsSounds great. Which brand and control are you using?
Havent got a clue but it handles how little im throwing at itVery nice shifter system. Do you know by chance how much torque the Quaife is capable of?
Very nice approach. How does the ECT curve over load came out? My ECU controls it with a PID controller with 6 maps, among them e.g. pilot controllers for load, VSS, WOT time counter and other stuff to adapt ECT to knock and oil temperature control via oil-coolant-cooler. Works out nicely, from idle till harsch transient WOT I see only +-2 °C. That makes it easier to street tune it.pierburg cwa400.controlled via pwm on the syvecs
Thanks, may I have to ask Quaife.Havent got a clue but it handles how little im throwing at it
You are a good man, well done engine consolation job! The Cosworth engine would have been a 2-Liter-YB engine? The Honda F20C1 route is a much better fit to the character of this chassis, which is so light in the rear. The torque is lower, but due to the revving capability there is so much power available. Much better turn in control and still fast enough. For Rally, AutoX and maybe slow hill climbs for me the better choice. The challenge to gain this F20C1 over 300 hp is not to high. I pushed the K20 to 310 hp and see potential for 360 hp for my next K-series engine project. The F20C1 engine still has the higher potential regarding peak power.he was going to go down the usual route of 2 litre cosworth turbo engine but i convinced him to use the s2000 engine
Yeap, they are really high quoted and dominated by collectors. I hope this will not happen the next 10 years to the K20 engine. Beside the price, the BDG engine, is really good one. It was used as highly potent 2-Liter NA engine in many race series, also in a FI'd version of the increased 1.8 Liter predecessor BDA for the Zackspeed Capri (600 hp) and has some F1 genes from the DFV V8 engine. The Cosworth BDG and the Opel C20XE are some really nice pre-90'ies engine beside the B-series of Honda, which did not made it properly into the 2-Liter area. B20 has a too low R-S-ratio, which is in the area of the K24, not the best for racing. All of them: BDG, C20XE, even the EA113 from VW made it to 300+ hp in open racing series. If you compare their heads with the K20, you won't believe it. These guy did achieve this all by testing without much simulation, I do today.Yes it would of been the YBT, everything to do with them is stupid costs now...Bare engine is roughly £8k
My uncle had a competitor chassis of Opel/GM, the '74 Kadett C, which is loved by hill climbers and AutoX racers because of RWD, lightness and good controllability despite the rigid axis with the Panhard bar.Driveability with the s2k is really nice, his one is a stock engine but as the car only weighs 700kg it is fairly quick
Very nice, I didn't know Vauxhall had the Kadett or brother of it also in the program like e.g. the Vauxhall Astra 1st Gen, which corresponds to our Opel Kadett D, which is the successor of the Kadett C. Was there also a sports version like the GT/E with 2-Liter 115 hp to compete against the Ford RS2000?I remember the kadett,ours had a vauxhall badge
I love this engine, which is an engineering genius strike compared to the other GM/Opel engines of the 80'ies. Cosworth designed the head, which was and still is the heart of that 86x86 engine.the c20 let engines used to be a popular swap engine,not as common now but still loved in rallying over here
These are also used here for racing in lower weight cars, but not as popular maybe as those are in UK.ford st170/duratec/zetec are also popular still but are low powered
That was a high potential 2V-engine, very good R-S-ratio, huge bore of over 90 mm and an high speed capable around 77 mm stroke. A very famous race engine from the 70'ies. David Vizard learned much of his 2-valve head knowhow on that little 2-Liter engine. He wrote in many publications about it and his success in racing with the Chrysler Avenger (looks like a Ford Escort RS2000 or Kadett C Coupe) with a TL16 Pinto engine. Cosworth did now that block has huge potential and build a 16V head for it, which became the YB engine from Cosworth. A very smart approach.The ybt was based on the pinto engine!
