The ECS Novi 2200 started, but not without adversity!
 
So.... I woke up sunday morning and decided to make the trip to Straighline Performance in New Lenox, IL from Des moines,IA. I got the car all packed up, checked under the hood just to be safe and I was off! Made the drive in about 4.5 hours, booked my hotel and walked across the street to grab some bit @ texas road house. All was well, until..

I woke up the next morning excited to head 6 miles down the road and drop my car off to Nick! I go out, start my car to let it warm up and go back inside for a cup of coffee. At this point, everything seems ok... grab my coffee and head back outside. I sit in my car and sure as crap.. a strong smell of raw fuel! I quickly shut it down and pop the hood to find fuel sprayed everywhere...

I suspect its my fuel feed line, but see nothing out of the ordinary upon inspection,I throw down a few hotel towels and have him give a quick turn of the key to pressurize the fuel so I can see where its coming from. To my surprise its spraying out from where the injector seats into my aftermarket Fast fuel rails.... whats odd is that I made the 350 mile trip fine with no fuel issues...

after a $60 trip to napa for a few basic tools and more importantly, Gloves.. (23degrees outside) I get the fuel rail rip ripped apart and reseat all my injectors and get it fixed. Its now 10 am..


So I make it over to straightline and going over this list of mods I have in my trunk and being shipped direct to his shop!
ECS Novi 2200 kit, ECS 10 Rib, Alky Meth kit, ATI UDP, Mantic 9000 twin Clutch, Master cylinder, slave cylinder ,Squash E85 duel 450lph pump + accessories, Id1000 injectors, Pillar Guages, DSS 1400 Axles , Farks upper control arm bushings , LPW diff cover, Jannetty posi mod, Jannetty diff billet caps, Solo axle back w/J pipes, ZR1 3 bar map sensor, Steel braided Coolant line,
Katech heater hose relocate

Car detail!!
Still undecided but have funds for 2" headers, Eaton truetrac, Pfadt drag coilovers,
3" catback


as were going through the list we begin to talk about how we want to manage boost on the novi 2200, were both sold on the idea of utilizing a wastegate with a 13lb spring on the front side of the intercooler over the standard restrictor plate design by ECS. We were thinking we would pulley down, make higher boost in the lower range and use the wastegate to bleed anything in excess of 13lb, basically hitting peak boost alot sooner.

that was until... we got on the subject of when I could afford to turn the beast over to a 416ci .. a little question and answer back and forth and we decide ill let him know by end of day, well I made my decision within an hour.. **** it, we only live once right!?

So.. the motor gets ripped out today and off to machining, ill update with the assembly we decide on shortly!

Needless to say, im excited! and today is my birthday, so Happy birthday to me!

Special thanks to Matt@FSP for being able to make this all happen for me, you've been pretty much the best vendor ive ever worked with and truly appreciate all the dumb questions i've been bombarding you with over the past 2 weeks and all the cell phone texts over the weekend! Thanks a ton bro! Im sure I have a few more items I need to pickup and will still need to truly upgrade my rear in May.

Detoxx03 03-05-2013 10:25 AM

I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

02bluess 03-05-2013 11:04 PM

Congrats! I'll be dropping my car off with Nick/Straightline Friday for a few updates and have been working with Matt, too.

Maybe I'll see you at the track once we're buttoned up and the weather is a little less snowy :biggrin:

FSP is a great vendor! They've done some work already for me and will be doing my cam in April hopefully.

Good luck with your build, I cant wait to see the results.

Yep, Nick's going to have a few pretty quick 5th gen's rolling around... know he's wrapping up another 416/ECS combo, too.

Think maybe a Straightline/ECS/FSP track day will be in order... I have some business to take care of with a certain GT500 :biggrin:

VanquisherSS 03-06-2013 08:42 AM

Btw OP i was going to do something similar on my build run a wastegate and an AEM TRU-Boost Controller so I could street it at a low power and turn it up when I wanted.

fastvee 03-06-2013 09:28 AM

yea im anxious man, hoping to put down 800-850 on that stingy mustang dyno.

Camper 07-25-2013 05:43 PM

so... its been a long 4.5 months but the build is finally complete and we dyno tomorrow!

nothing much was altered from the build with the exception of the cam selection and addition of Pfadt coilovers. We went up to a 239/251; .623/.623 115 LSA. I kept the rear stock as I decided to blow it up before I replace it. I wont be tracking it for a little while anyway..

you can see pictures in my link (you'll need to distinguish what car is what)

wish me luck!

PS.- yes I know I have the dirtiest undercarriage of all time!

That is one healthy cam. Should make good power. My cam is a baby compared to that.

Trackman 07-25-2013 06:36 PM

Almost five months and it is not done? Sounds like a horror story. Glad you have patients.
I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

02bluess 07-25-2013 08:02 PM

Good luck Camper, I think you'll be happy with the results!!

If I'd known you were going to be dynoing tomorrow I'd have taken off work to head up and check it out :popcorn:

Paul...

VanquisherSS 07-26-2013 02:57 PM

In for the dyno results :D :nod:
