    Project "Endeavour"

    DYNO VIDEO!
    DYNO GRAPH WITH METH!!
    Modified Magazine Photo Shoot Pictures!!


    So with a few pictures in hand it is time to post up my build thread! Been working on the car since about June when I blew it up at a lapping event. Since then, countless hours and countless dollars have been dropped into this bad boy.

    As for the name... One of my good buddies (quite a sarcastic fellow) instantly noticed my large wing the first day. The conversation was as follows:
    "Lord almighty, you planning to take that F*cker to the moon?"
    "Yeah man! Apollo style!
    "More like Endeavour... your gonna blow your s*it up"

    Thus Endeavour was born.

    Basic Run down:

    Engine/Fuel Management/Intake/Cooling
    Fully build motor with all the tricks.
    Tomei cams
    Nismo Fuel and Oil pumps
    Big Single B&W 300SX Turbo 88/75 .91AR
    Fullrace manifold
    dual Tial Wastegates
    Sard fuel rail with 800cc injectors
    Link G4 ECU
    Mishimoto Rad
    Huge trust intercooler
    Oil cooler and custom relocation kit

    Suspension/Drive/Wheels
    ATS carbon diffs front and rear (soon to be OS Giken!)
    Tein suspension
    CE28N's wrapped in 265/35r/18 Nitto NT05
    Whiteline Swaybars

    Interior (getting slicked out by CE interior)
    Bride seats
    Cusco cage

    As for other things... Really just to lazy to write it all out right now.

    Car Before commencement...



    Its alll coming together! Car after being stripped waiting months for parts and being put back together once parts arrived

    Thank you! Damn overseas job cost me some serious km's this year, but I did get a few in! I'll be home more soon and can give it the love it deserves.

    Goal is to get it wrapped this winter. I bought a huge roll, but it is about 10x more difficult than I imagined to apply.

    Time to post an update!

    Finally back on the road with this beast! Took some time on my last rotation to install the hood pins and put some kms on it! Pins were a slightly annoying process and I most certainly could have done a better job of them. End of the day, they are holding the hood in place, so that's all I really cared about.

    I'll be sure to get some more shots of it when I'm home




    Hoping to wrap it some obnoxious color this month as well!

    Yup but with a weaker spring.

    Got a few good driving days in before I had to head back to work. Managed to get the harness bar in, but had a brake line bubble up on me, new lines will be ready when I get back in may!

    Dyno graph is still the old one from the original build. This put down the same power on paper, but I think Autodreams dyno, at the time I was on it, was a bit generous.

    The power delivery is much better now than it was before, but the wastegate spring needs to be swapped for greater boost levels. Then I'll settle for 600whp; Primary goal is just to drive it this year. No more wrench time for a bit!

    Managed to pick this up last time I was off rotation. Didn't get to drive it for more than a day before Calgary weather ruined my time home, but boy was it nice!

    Short clip of some revs.

    Pros:
    All the new parts worked out awesome.
    Car has super smooth power delivery across the whole range.
    STACK dash is cool as hell
    rebuilt tranny is orgasmic to drive
    Full race ETS controller makes a noticeable difference and works well
    It's fast


    Cons/Quirks
    Triple plate clutch is super sensitive and honestly a pain to drive on anything other than open asphalt
    Idle is a bitch (sounds dope though)
    Diffs, fuel pumps, fans all make for a really noisy cabin
    Comfort is essentially 0
    Fuel economy is that of MAC truck

    Plans for this year:
    New wastegate, maxed up the current ones and would like some more boost
    Coilovers, only part I didn't replace.

    Not yet. I'm in and out of country and need a few minor pieces. Door latch broke, mast brake cylinder is leaking etc... Home stretch of stuff and had I been home I certainly could have had it on the road. Wasn't giving it the live it needed lol.

    Next summer... And I'm confident that's the last time I have to say it!
