Spank me someone


225/60/15's with Navara offset on the fronts and landcruiser rear offsets.
6 studs each.

Toyota 1gg blower, Very custom brackets, all LPG of course.

We have 15km of test run under the belts.
It was leaking boost like a seive (deliberately) and IT HAULS!
LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN!

new belt is coming today to replace version one.
minor modification last night fixed a belt alignment problem.

4 days, three nights,
Tired, sore and grinning like a fool.

Will is a legend and gets huge credit for his hard work, lateral thinking and skill.
Thanks heaps for your work.
Full write up is in the works, after further testing of course.

very cool, congratulations. bet it feels great!
did you get the PM I sent you a couple days ago?
if not well I am interested in LPG on a ej22+t.
looking for knowledge on boosting with propane and its impossible to find.
what mixer are you running? its hard to tell.
how hard is it to tune propane for boost?
you said something before about running the stock distributorless ignition on an ej22 to keep that spark but not fueling? if so I am really interested to find out how it is done and how well it works.
basically I want about 300hp, was thinking to run an impco model E reg, 425 or 225 mixer, blow through. what do you think?
your brat is wicked cool:cool:

that looks kinda familier.......
if you wanted to you could get an alcohol able carb and run water instead of fuel ,instant water injection (after a leaning the jets), thats what i ended up doing. i also used switched electric fuel pump so i could turn the water off when air temps got too cold

why did you go draw thru rather than blow thru?

220 kms under the belt now.
It idles,
I haven't been nasty to it yet it - bagged up all four 225's on the wet road last night "accidently".
How many Brumbys do you know that can go 1st, 3rd, 5th
at 1/2 throttle!
My face hurts from grinning for two days.
130km = 27 litres of gas.
Tuned at its roughest by me.

I was advised to go this way, he knows WAY WAY more than me, I am not too proud to take advice.

It works.

Mate, I have 2 x 375cc injectors briased into the inlet tube which I am going to open at WOT to inject a "special blend" of very cool gas.

Plus, down the track- or down the gravel road, I also have the option of using the 4 factory injectors (which are lying dormant and waiting) for adding more gas.
Just a mere switching system away.:grin:

Known practice here to add LPG through slightly modified factory injection systems.

But...how fast do I really want to go???:slobber:

hmmm if i was going to do it again i'd go blowthru.

still, the way you got it setup will still give vacuum for the distributor advance which can be an act on a blowthru setup

On any fuel injected car so I gather, I am doing further research at the moment.
It takes heated collars on the injectors to stop them freezing, but it eliminates the need for a gas condensor, allowing high pressure gas to be injected right into the combustion chamber.

so they inject it as liquid or gas?
I'm amazed that fuel injectors can handle propane level pressures.

Think about fuel pressures then, common rail diesels run 1000s of psi.
Gas runs at its liquification pressure, whatever that is.
Not much according to my gas BBQ.

I would suggest 400 - 500 psi can anyone confirm any figures here??


I have another 220km under the belt and it runs and runs and runs.

All down low, it may well even run out of pufff atthe very top of the revs, its made for a 2000cc and I am sucking 2200cc each rev.
But who cares, I will get as much as I can when its finally tuned by someone who knows what they are doing.

I amazed, no flat out impressed an Sti owner yesterday. He drove it and could not stop raving about it.
Drooled on my damn seats.
(bear in mind he has driven the car through its 3 motors, ea81, ea81 twin carb, NA EJ22 and now blown EJ22)
A good mate.
He now is looking for a "Kit" to say bye bye to his boost lag.
On an 06 STI!

Its catching.

not that high 130psi on a warm day, gets right down on a cold day 30-40psi at around 0 deg C

Someone needs to make a kit like the one someone made for the EG33, custom manifold with the S/C under and a remounted alternator. or maybe on top huffing through a custom long runner crossover intake......:grin: put it on an EJ22t bolck with STi heads?

Who cares, I could have gone out and had a custom unit made by sprintex or Powerdyne, or, or, or, or........
As it stands there is not one component in the Wonder Brumby that is over $800 Australian to replace.

It is all factory parts from one manufacturer or another.
NO RICE.
NO BLING BLING

It was an exersice in design, fabrication, lateral thought and improvisation.

Any fool can buy a WRX motor.
We Made something fit without cutting crossmembers or frame rails.

And if the blower eats it, I can swap the trottle bodies with 4 bolts and put on the old fan belt.

Not yet LP,

Rough tuned until I get some more retard adjustment in the disty.
Its running cooler by a bit, (not when sittting in trafic)
About 10% more thirsty I estimate.
More torque than I have ever felt in a subaru before.
Lots of little things to finish up yet.

Labour of love.
