In the meantime regulations and calendar where posted on official FB page of out TA championship.
Basically, in my class car should have stock interior, 4 point harness, not more than 7% weight reduction from stock weight, engine should be from the same manufacturer as car (looks like something like EZ36 turbo build will be legal
), on max 265 street legal semi slick. Water/meth injection is allowed.
Looking on 2016 season, top competitors are turbo S2000 and NA EG9 civic with B18 NA engine and light weight, stock E46 M3 CSL with nice suspension mods and sticky tryres... Well I will not guess my chances because I already done that like two years ago... Since there bar was raised higher but I'll stick to what I have.
First race is scheduled on April, 2nd. There also will be a pre-season trackday in the beginning of March.
To do list:
Drop engine in
Put exhaust together
Radiator and cooling plumbing
Figure out cold air intake with enclosed filter and MAF delete
Put together fuel system
Install walbro fuel pump (make sure that it will not result in starving fuel like it did last time)
Service BC inverted coilovers (I believe it's recommend to get them re-greased once every year)
Change all fluids.
Figure out a way to adapt V2 engine harness and dash to V4 ECU
Wire in IAT sensor
re-wire COP ignition in wasted spark mode
Install Wideband (MTX-L)
Install EGT gauge (on its way)
Radiator fan override
Wire in RaceDAC datalogger
Figure out mafless mode on ESL and START THE CAR
Check brakes operation and possible leaks
Get safe tune without meth injection
Take it to exhaust shop. Currently there are no flex sections anywhere in the exhaust (except for manifold mid pipe) so I wanted to add one and MOT might require cat install.
Get wheel alignment
Renew insurance, registration and MOT
Test on track
Is it realistic to get it dome before April? Judging from my previous progress - no way
But what I know for sure if I will not make it for the first event, there are good chances that I might not make it to start the car this season at all, so I'll better try my best to get the car running safe for some sort of shakedown event on the first race.
