  • #49's new powerplant has arrived, let the build begin

    EDIT:

    Alright this is my attempt to summarize to date what has gone on and build a Table of Contents so to speak out of a 'Build Spec' list. I will come back to this point periodically to update this section so that everyone can have one place to go to answer their questions hopefully.

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    So as some of you know I recently bought one of NPG's turbo kits and I have now decided to install a 3L as well at the same time. This thread will serve as my build thread with pictures of the entire process from the tear down of the car and the teardown/build/install of the 3L and turbo kit. Here is the build plan and the starting pictures.

    2005 Ford Escape 3.0L Duratec, 43k miles, compression test of 207psi
    -parts to be ordered/installed (as of right now, investigating options with Scat, Wiseco, and ROSS)
    K1 rods
    Diamond Racing Pistons
    4.6L valves
    -parts on order
    waiting for my ST220 UIM to arrive from the UK and then it's being sent out for EH




    Also for those interested all of my original parts will be for sale (since there is nothing wrong with my current 2.5L) at some point in the classifieds. I will also post in here as parts become available.

                  Well the first thing I did when I bought this car was upgrade the tranny. I had a how-to a long time ago in the archives. Although I may have to revisit it. I have the updated shift forks, Focus shift tower, Torsen T2 diff running Torco MTF. For the clutch (clearly you missed my GB) I am running a ClutchNet red pressure plate and 6 button disc, which is their stage 3 package. I also have a Fidanza flywheel, but I am unsure as to whether I will be running it or not. Bottom-line I think a call into TH is in order to see what he thinks.

                  All parts that I do not use or old performance parts that I will not be able to use will be sold. Right now I know off the top of my head that my stainless steel Trubendz test pipe with the SS O2 bung, WeaponR y-pipe, and Taylor Thundervolt 8.2mm wires will be for sale at some point. Along with possibly chrome powder coated SVT UIM/TB and my T-red powder coated valve covers.

                  Yea well, gotta have my toys. I weighed my options of buying the 911 turbo and the Viper and this will still be cheaper then buying either by a long shot. I think I'll have way more fun with this too personally. I plan to finish my Camaro after this as well, but I chose the Contour first because it's newer and not rusted.

                  So updates:

                  I want to get the best bang for my buck so I've been poking around to find what suppliers can offer. So far I have had limited success with emails. Only K1 Technlogies has replied. So I've begun calling everyone. However here is what I have received so far...

                  Rods
                  K1 Technologies - billet 4340 H-beam rods, $617.28 + ~$15 shipping
                  Scat - Does not show anything in there system, but after prying with the guy on the phone about AER buying rods for the Nobles from them he found a mystery rod for a V6 that they purchase. The guy that deals with them is out until next week. He had no idea what he could sell them to me for either.
                  Pauter Machine - Still makes the rods the old part number (FOR-210-530-1380F) is still valid and even more amazing is the fact that they stock them. However even with the special they are running till the end of the month the rods are still $1188.00

                  Pistons
                  Diamond Pistons - No replies yet, they were closed when I got out of work. NPG sells them in a kit for $899.95
                  Wiseco - Custom pistons guy is out of the office
                  Ross Pistons - Custom piston forged and dished will run me $660 for the pistons. Upgrading the wrist pins adds another $150

                      I remember you told me that before... but where did you hear that from? I can't imagine it is to bad as Wiseco advertises for them on their own website.

                        Sounds like you aren't cutting any corners on this one!
                        So you are going to EH your ST220 UIM, has anyone done this before?
                        Obviously your upgrading your MAF, fuel pump, and injectors?
                        What TB, headers, cams, exhaust, oil pan, bearings, and tune are you going with?
                        Is anything getting powder coated?

                        Looks like a great build!!

                          Trying not to cut any corners if I can avoid it. No sense in skimping now with the money I've dumped on the turbo and 3L.

                          As for the ST220 UIM, there is at least one other person sending in an ST220 manifold.

                          MAF = 90mm Lightning
                          Fuel Pump = 255lph pump
                          injectors = 42# Lightning injectors
                          TB = Mustang 70mm
                          Headers = keeping my WR SS headers
                          Cams = copying the Noble setup, which uses the ST220 cams (same as the 2005 Escape from what I can find talking with the UK guys)
                          Exhaust = Full SS all the way back, NPG turbo piping and Borla Cat-back, which has been on the car from day one.
                          Oil Pan = So far I'm just going to keep the Escape one, however I may try to get a Noble 7qt track pan if it'll fit.
                          Bearings = Clevite 77's
                          Tune = Probably NPG as I paid for it with the turbo kit, however I do have an Xcal3 and PRP if I want to venture in doing it myself.

                          Powdering coating... everything I can fit in my oven.

                            Nice! Can't wait to see it!

                            Also I might be interested in the test pipe you said you will have for sale. Is it the high flow cat or cat delete?

                              Mike, your borla is going to be a HUGE bottleneck in your system.

                              If you like the sound (which i sure do of my borla :dool: )I might get a exhaust shop to make a 3" from the Turbo... manifold...downpipe thingy... Add a resonator and have them 'Tee' into rear part of borla where it splits.

                              That what i would do.
