sleet in process of it now. will be done at end of the week. forged 2.0 gt3071 .64 along with new bearings coated by calico coatings, and timing chain and deleted balance chain.

Elmo wow... old thread. sleet, what's the status on all of this?

Drew in Houston If budget is a concern, you might start by listing the parts that you have already have.

If you just want 300whp then you can do it for a lot cheaper than a 3071, forged internals, etc..

The 2.3 motor would give you about 300-500rpm earlier spool, but some now feel that it hits too early with the .64ar and the 2.0 motor might be a better choice for the gt3071 .64ar.

All you would need is the turbo, spacer from Nick, oil line, modded dp and a 2.75" rubber elbow to make the turn on the inlet, these will not colapse like the silicone elbows. Then the 60# siemans injectors and the sw to run it.
I made my stock coolant line work on my set-up, just tweek them with a socket extension and they can be made to work.

If you put in the enem cams down the road, that would add another 50whp or so...

hopefully by this spring ill have this setup... John i'll definitely have to hit you up for a tune as well.

JZW Nick posted that, 353whp with stock cams, 406whp with enem cams on his viggen. The 2.0 motor would make almost the same if not a little more whp, but about 30-50wtrq less...

My 2.0 motor made 5whp more than my 2.3 motor, but 30-50wtrq less in wtrq.

Here is the comparison between motors. You can see the peak bhp is almost identical, but there is more torque and the big gain is the 500rpm earlier spool-up of the larger displacement motor.

One factor though is the 2.0 motor was dynod with w/m injection, which gave me a good 30-40wtrq and the 2.3 dyno was without, so the torque numbers would have been a good 30-35wtrq more... So somewhere around 460wtrq sae with 2.3 and w/m injection.

sleet thats a nice gain from the camshafts. this may be the route i take, if i can swing this financially. thanks. gt3071r .64, 2.0 forged pistons, enam camshafts, valve springs may be the route i take.

--- yeah actually going through some numbers, it looks doubtful i will be able to do any of this but i will keep researching and see what i can do. thanks a lot. this at least got me in the right direction if i do end up going through with it.

That would be a pretty close bet. Most have gained right around 50whp with the enem cams...

nowhereman how much are you looking to spend. all of these ideas could be very expensive depending upon your budget. Also you said you currently have 320hp but have the goal of 300hp? confused unless the 320 is crank and you are experiencing a decent bit of loss to the wheels.

and def stock up on extra trannies you will need them.
05-14-2008 08:42 AM
Jameson I think 300whp is a pretty simple goal and you don't need to go over board.

I think cams and a smallish turbo like an 18T or a Gt28 will do the trick.

132417SAAB yea if I where you I'd source an aero 2.3,gt something or holset, fueling, and spare trannies
05-14-2008 03:00 AM
mcrowley I don't think putting forged pistons in your 2.0 will be any less expensive then dropping a 2.3 in there. If anything it'd probably cost you significantly more.
05-13-2008 09:50 PM
sleet yeah i know its bad. i cant help myself. i look at it this way. right now in my life yeah of course its not the smartest and best thing to do but honestly this might be the only time i ever get to do this kind of thing. so its either now or never basically.
