Well, since my car is running half decent Engine Wear/Protection from being boost came to mind.

I have been running M1 0w-40 since I had the car at 40k. M1 said they ZDDP in that oil is about 1100 per quart. M1 claims that is plenty for our cars. Upon opening my motor and swapping Cams. I beg to differ. So, I started looking for other ways to boost or get off the shelf Syn Motor Oil that has a Higher Content of ZPPD. Then, I came across this Lucas Oil 10063 Engine Break-In Oil Additive. The bottle is 16oz. and has about 35000+ ZPPD per bottle. Which is Great! To my calculations, I will need about 1-1.5oz per oil change (7-8 quarts).

Mobile 1 0w-40 = 1100 ZPPD
Lucas 1oz = 2188 ZPPD

So if my calculations is right...

1100(7) + 2188 = 9888 ZPPD (7 quarts)
9888/7 = 1412 ZPPD (per quart)

Which to me is acceptable as the motor oil I am using in my M20 (e30) has about 1400 ZPPD and Most Redline Racing Motor Oil has about 1500 ZPPD per quart.

If you are interested in a metal conditioner you can add to the oil. Here is a links:

The following link is more informative about what is this metal conditioner and how it works:

Since it warmed up a good bit here in Ms. I start to paint my oil cooler and brackets semi-gloss black to match the rest of the kit.



I started to remove my Oil Cooler for the S/C around to see how I can mount my new engine oil cooler...



Here it is mounted in front of the radiator support and will be behind the sc oil cooler.



Lines routed and fittings are fitted. I will be modifying the AA S/C Oil Cooler Bracket. Similar to the M3 version (AA should just use this bracket for all e46 as it fits and looks much better.)

Well my Viton Fluoroelastomer O-rings came in for the Technik/VPD Kit. These are very high quality compare to the BUNA O-rings that is on the kit originally.

I measure everything myself O-Rings to the shaft to make sure these are the right one. I do have a few extra and be willing to sell them if anyone need replacements.



Here they are on the Shaft nice and tight. I getting them done Dust Black. So it will match everything under the hood.



The cap before prep work.



Media Blasted and Custom Hangers...



Finish Product.

Food for Thoughts...

Final Compression Ratio on a 10:1 C/R Boosted Car (Stock m54b30)

Compression Ratio 10:1 with 4lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 12.7:1
Compression Ratio 10:1 with 6lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 14.1:1
Compression Ratio 10:1 with 8lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 15.4:1
Compression Ratio 10:1 with 10lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 16.8:1
Compression Ratio 10:1 with 12lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 18.2:1
Compression Ratio 10:1 with 14lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 19.5:1
Compression Ratio 10:1 with 16lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 20.9:1
Compression Ratio 10:1 with 18lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 22.2:1

These are the Final Compression Ratios on a car with 10:1 C/R while under its full boost.

Final Compression Ratio on a 9:1 C/R Boosted Car (Built Boosted m54b30)

Compression Ratio 9:1 with 4lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 11.4:1
Compression Ratio 9:1 with 6lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 12.7:1
Compression Ratio 9:1 with 8lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 13.9:1
Compression Ratio 9:1 with 10lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 15.1:1
Compression Ratio 9:1 with 12lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 16.3:1
Compression Ratio 9:1 with 14lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 17.6:1
Compression Ratio 9:1 with 16lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 18.8:1
Compression Ratio 9:1 with 18lbs of boost will yield a Final C/R of 20.0:1

These are the Final Compression Ratios on a car with 9:1 C/R while under its full boost.

Thanks to Supercharging Performance Handbook for the info.

Tom,

You are asking a legitimate question. So no worries, I never plan this install to be this long. Over a Year One issue after another. The car runs fine but I just can't get on it and a cold start issue. (Timing Pulls like crazy after the SAP turns off) I can feel it and its in my datalog as well.

I am about to jack her up tomorrow and tear her down again. This time will be the last time I hope. I will be doing my Transmission VB Mod, M3 Rearend Swap, Custom Driveshaft, Zionsville Radiator and Expansion Tank, Tial 50mm QR BOV, New ATI SuperDamper, 95mm Rotrex Pulley, ARD Underdrive Kit, Apex ARC-8 18'' Wheels, Bosch Motorsports 60lbs Injectors and a few other goodies.

Yes, I did installed some shrick 248/256 FI cams in the car and 3" exhaust with the help of Brady. They are a PITA to install but well worth it. When finish and done. I am expecting about 400 or so WHP. So wish me luck

As far as tuning goes. I have yet have time to send Zak@AA a good Datalog (30mins or so) of the car from a cold start and warmed up operations. Hopefully, AA can get my tune squared off and running correctly. My other option is go with a Stand-A-Lone ECU unit and that will be some fun...

-Anthony

The idle speed doesn't change or have any tapping noises. Just the timing is pulled and advanced that make the engine shake alittle. (Can feel in cabin) goes away about 1-2mins after starting the car.

I was able to squeeze in some work from Babysitting, Working for my Parents, School and my own business. Been very heck-it lately.

I was able to removed the ATI Damper that I sold to Solo-///M and shipped that out Should get it soon bro!!!









I was able to remove my OEM Radiator and Cooling System for BigJae1976. I can't wait for my new RAD and Expansion Tank!!!



During this time, I also Removed and Installed my Under Drive Pulley Kit from ARD.







Some of you guys might say why am I doing this. Well, the issue is Belt Slipping before hitting full boost. I been going through belts like no tomorrow. So to fix that I am jumping up to a 95mm S/C Pulley and Oversize ATI Damper with an UnderDrive Pulley Kit. I am not to worried about the Alternator since its has a regulator built on and will adj itself accordingly. Next on my thing to do list is remove the Rear ZHP Diff before the week is over. And start on my M3 LSD RearEnd Swap.

Also, some tech info. For people who wanna do some Maintenance on the AA S/C Kit. There are 2 Toyota Timing Belt Pulleys on this kit. Made by KOYO (Toyota OEM Manufacturer). They are really hard to find if you don't know the part number. So I helped you guys out. Listed below are the interchangeable part number for this pulley

CROSS REFERENCE:
024-1006 BECK/ARNLEY
13503-63011 TOYOTA
13503-63021 TOYOTA
13503-70040 TOYOTA
57TB3705 NSK
PU355816RR9D KOYO

No problem. Glad you have some use for this info. To be honest bro. With the MAF down in the bumper or up and behind the headlight my car runs the same. If AA tells you to leave it where it is then leave it...

Yup...just waiting on your stuff to get here.

You WILL curse the day you put this zionsville unit in. It makes working on anything in front of the engine a total whore. That ATI damper you just removed? You would have had to take out the radiator. I warned you...

At least your coolant will never get old.
