C20NE Daily to C25XE Trackdaytool
« on: December 15, 2014, 23:52:26 PM »
hi,

After following some projects here, it's time to start my own project page!
Some little information about myself, I'm Dave, living in the Netherlands (so I'm sorry for my bad English sometimes  :P), 20 years old now, and own 2 Calibra's at the moment.
Story's about a 1992 Calibra with a C20NE engine, I bought it in 2011, But it had a lot of rust, so I decided a year later to rebuild the car again. Does anyone know the best possible way to put pics in here? Will be updated soon!

Use Photobucket, link below for you.

Why are you using a C25 for a track day car?? The NE would be better IMO, the V6 is a cruiser and bloody heavy.

Welcome to the site :)

A standard V6 is indeed a bit lazy as Alz says, but a lighter flywheel and a close ratio gearbox will change that!

The reason that i chose a c25xe is because i've always wanted a v6 calibra. I'm a big v6 fan. When i was 17, my dad doesn't liked the idea that a v6 was my "first" car. His reason was that i needed to learn drive first before i purchase a v6 calibra. But when i picked up my c20ne calibra, i've done to much to sell it and buy a v6, so i decided to build one. But not as daily, but something special, that's why the idea streetlegal trackdaytool came from. But in the netherlands you have "apk", that's a sort of yearly check if your car is safe. But you have to equip same engine as om your car papers, so when the v6 is in the car, i have to go to the Rdw, so they can check if the build is safe (think about good replaced engine, brake upgrade etc etc) then they replace my old 4 cylinder papers for a v6, and then it's streetlegal
When i'm home tonight i'll place some picture's of the outside restauration i did 2 years ago

Nobody is complaining about the V6 engine, it's quite good. The problem is the gear ratios and flywheel weight, this spoils the performance. That's all!

Look forward to seeing this happen!

Hi Davebatenburg, if you have 2.5V6, go for 3.0 V6, all bits you need are on 2.5 and with 3.0 you go for 200 or more bhp :-)
C20NE becomed C30XE+X25XE+C20LET 3 Cali is better than one

The begin of the story;
Bought it like this in 2011;


After some mods, changed it to this;



And did my first carshow ever at age 17, It called Sevenum

and that was also the first time my car didn't start, after some searching it was the crankshaftsensor.

The following year I get my license, and drove the car for a year as daily.
Then decided to get a full restoration and respray, because the rust also hits my calibra :(

Picture's say more then words, afterwards I think I made to less picture's...


aaand the other side



Then suddenly after some days, it became this;



Then he's ready for some original paint, spectral blue!



and the rebuild :)



Then time for the ''APK'', the dutch road inspection


Drive with the car after this 3 months, then it became colder and winter, and decided it's time for the inner side and a bigger engine, a v6

Some latest pics when the car is complete ;D




Then it's time to get some parts, so I bought another calibra, with a v6 in it.



Meanwhile I bought a golf MK3 GTI as new daily (yes a vw :-[)

There they are, waiting together


Updated soon, stay tuned! ;D

Next; Engines out!





First one is out  ;D

Now time for the cables


And done, engineroom is empty now :)

As you can see, it's a bit rusty in here to :'(


now the other one, First we tested the compression so we know something about the engine, pressure was between 14-15 BAR, so that's not bad.




oops empty room in here :)


and here's our little friend!

serious weight saving haven't my priority, but my complete interior is stripped out, only a rollcage and bucket seats come back inside. So indirect I saved some weight, but think the car still is al little bit heavy. But the car must be also usable to drive from point A to point B
