Just thought I'd show my VZ R8 build to you all, after seeing some damn nice cars on here. I picked up my clubby in August 2015 in Melbourne, then drove it back to Darwin in 4 days. when I bought it was cammed, shaved heads and exhaust, making a touch over 300rwkw. after enjoying it for a few months I noticed a slight oil leak from the sump gasket and decided to pull the engine out and not put it back in until its mental. Basically what I have so far is: -LQ9 Cast iron block -Scat 4340 forged crank (4.00") -Scat 4340 forged H-Beam rods (ARP2000 rod bolts) -SRP pro forged pistons (4.030") -ARP main studs -Custom grind Comp camshaft -double row timing chain -high volume Melling oil pump -LS3/L92 heads -Morel tie-bar lifters -Manley dual valve springs -Improved Racing sump baffle and oil cooler adapter That's the main parts of it, the short block was built by Racetec Industries in Yatala QLD, who did an unreal job and communicated during the whole build. The engine is being set up for boost, the original plan was for a whipple 2900 or similar but am now leaning toward a single turbo setup likely with an BW S480. Behind the engine will be a built and transbraked TH400 and around a 4000rpm stall. As soon as I figure out how to upload photos I will haha.. Let me know if you've had any experiences with a similar build. I'm eager to here some tips and tricks people have. Cheers, Darcy.
