9 second 4g63 awd Mirage drag race, Road to the 2012 DSM Shootout Compilation
The story starts on 8/8/12 at New Engalnd Dragway in Epping, NH. Ryan
Pelletier's 4g63 awd Mirage breaks in the 150mph zone, then he breaks his
rear end cover. He scrambles to get it fixed with only a week to the
Shootout, then the following Wednesday 8/15/12 he makes some passes and
figures out the driveshaft is bent and severely vibrating. Only a day
before the Shootout begins and he needs a new evo 1-3 driveshaft, what will
he do? Find out....

WORLDS FASTEST AWD / 4G63 DATSUN / 20B RX7 IN TESTING
Willowbank Raceway held the 1st of the 2012 Top Sportman Series on the
weekend. Reece McGregor and the Heat Treatments Skyline thought it would be
a good chance to have some test runs in their worlds fastest RB26 powered
4wd skyline. The team worked hard all day and were rewarded with a final
pass or 7.64, not far off their 7.56 record, although something tells me
theres plenty more to come from this car again.
Another car using the test lane was Rob Novak in his Jett Racing 4G63
powered Datsun 1200. The team made adjustments through the day and saw a PB
7.35 @ 187mph on the second last pass of the night, the final wild pass on
video then saw a transmission failure but a happy team none the less.
Final team testing was the Direct Clutch/Promodz Rx7, the car is 3/4
chassis and a running 3rotor 20BT tweaked by Mazfix. The team recently made
adjustments in the rear and also in transmission and are starting to see
results, it ran a 7.99 @ 171mph through the day, then later in the night
suffered a leaking Boost pipe.
Owners Jerry and Dan tell me they havent even started to push the motor
yet, so another car with plenty more to come, and im sure that pb 7.80 will
soon be slashed.
These cars should all be running at the up and coming Sydney Jamboree at
WSID and by the looks of things have some unfinished business they want to
take care of :)
4g63 Turbo Manifold Swap #1
This is one of the problems I found after the Thursday night test & tune.
Over the next 2 days, I kept watching my airflow counts dropping gradually
in my logs and knew what was going down. Then I decided to drive it to
work and it sounded like somebody was running next to me with a
lawnmower... further confirming that I knew what was going on. Yep.
Pre-turboExhaust leak. It still had balls when I mashed
the gas, but I could tell it wasn't right. I was surprised because when I
found the crack, I realized I shouldn't have even been able to spool the turbo. This manifold flows better than the
stock piece, sure... but unless you get one made of inconel, it's a raging
pile of crap. Get rid of it. 304 stainless doesn't cut it. I even had
the lower turbo/Exhaust brace in place, so it wasn't getting
wrenched on accelerating and decelerating. This thing just wore out &
broke off from heat and pressure, and it did it in less than 2000 miles.
Yes, it's the one in the polishing video.
Other things that are a good idea to do...
1) always use factory turbo bolts and
washers. You're supposed to replace them with NEW bolts and washers. Use
FACTORY TORQUE SPECS! 21-23lbs + 60-70°
2) Stainless Steel 3mm turbo gaskets are
re-usable. Worth the investment.
3) Use Stainless Steel ARP head studs. They don't break off like OEM ones
do. This job sucks when you snap off factory studs. Use FACTORY TORQUE
SPECS! 19-21 lbs (even on ARP hardware) for the M8 nuts. 21-23 lbs on the
outer two M10 nuts if you have a 2g.
4) if you have to replace one, just get the EVO manifold. It dwarfs both
the 1g and 2g. The turbo flange is
bigger, so put my turbo port & polish
video to use. It doesn't need to be ported like the 2g part does, and it's
a thicker cast making it last much longer. If you have the cash, go ahead
and buy the Forced Performance cast manifold. You won't regret it.
5) The only people that will know why this video is called Manifold Swap #1
are the people who read the info. I have a brand new FP manifold that's
being ceramic coated, and I had bought it prior to this failure, not
anticipating that it would happen. Lucky me. I hated where the tubular
bits ended up in my engine bay, and they're preventing me from
re-installing my polished valve cover. The only reason I put that thing on
my car was because the 2g stock manifold was ugly. Ugly, sure... but it
works just as good and more reliably than these tubular things. If you buy
a manifold, buy a CAST manifold.

Kevin Jewer's Rear Wheel Drive Eagle Talon runs a new best on his PTE 6766
After qualifying #2 in the Quick 16 at the 20th Annual DSM/EVO Shootout in
Norwalk, OH Kevin had to drop out of the eliminations due to oil back up in
an awkwardly routed return line (only way to fit around Exhaust manifold). Back in New England only a
few days later and 700 more miles on the tow rig he brought the car up to
his local track to run the number he knew it should. Although it is not
what he wanted it was a new best. The engine cut out at 7.5 seconds into
the run and he estimates if it was a clean run it would have been around
165mph. Kevin is ok aside from the underwear change.
