Yep, it should work ok without intercooling. But there will be some power penalty if you are using any higher boost (>15 psi or so).

A friend made 641 hp on E85 with same turbo with no intercooler.

I'll be fine.

I'm using the water ports on the turbo core. 

It complicates the plumbing a bit but I want to protect my investment.

The FR has a nipple at the end of the cooling pipe at the front of the block.

Anybody else using them ?

I welded a 1/2" x 1" bar on the plenum and installed the IAT, fuel pressure regular boost reference, wastegate bottom port and MAP boost reference .

Cooling system all done.

Basic wiring loom all done. Ignition, neutral switch, oil pressure switch, kill switch, tether switch, starter and horn button for air shifter done.

wiring the MAXXEcu next week.

And it finally stop raining ! took the Busa out for a spin.

Fabricated a dash and painted the subframe black.

Working on the harness this week. Waiting for my oil pressure sensor.

Studying the MaxxEcu software. pretty cool stuff!

Found where to get E85 nearby with steady 86-88%.

Little bit more done today.

Installed a bunch of 2 & 3 wires Deutsch connectors. Love those connectors !

All injectors connectors installed hooked up.

To do:

- Front & back wheel sensor install

- Feeds from fuse box / relays connections to MaxxEcu

- Programming & tuning

- 16 / 40 gearing 

 - The RCA 7" tablet is garbage. Will get a Samsung 8".

My team of leprechauns made some progress on the bike...

Only things left to do are the catch cans, ECU configuration, get some E85 and startup.

I had to trim my dash plate twice. Also marked where to trim the bodywork for the BOV.

Doing that sometime this week.

We'll do configuration when my friend is available.

 

Cheers,

MM

Looking good! Although I think it would have been even more cool with some RF style fairings ;)

I know Arttu. My RF fairing was damaged. The fins on the side were blocking the install, tank was too high, I couldn't tuck in properly. Only RF parts left are 1/2 the frame and the cylinder head.

She had her good looking days (2013)....

Tastiest RF I've ever seen, I can recall a build thread somewhere from years gone by, love this.

Was this build thread on the old Oss site?

Yep, there are some practical reasons why most of the drag bikes look the same nowadays...

Yup, the whole thing started in 2009.

We got the bike started yesterday.

Few things to correct / to do

- Fuel leak

- Mark TDC on the trigger wheel

- My 28 years old starter gave up. I have a second one

- Running rich right now.

- Refill 2 CO2 bottle. Awaiting ASA shut off valve.

Love the whistle from the turbo ( GTX3576R Gen 2)

A friend here locally has a outer basket in his spare motor. That will save my butt!

Changing the o-rings on my injectors for thicker ones. Got a Viton o-ring kit coming.

Everything is good.

Went racing with my Busa this weekend. First time out. Lost in 3rd round, I was so close ... Finished in 3rd place in my class.
