Hurdy’s 7.5R

Recommended Posts

Really good read this mate just had a flick through! 

 

Those grey TD’s look to really fill the arches well! Am I right in thinking they’re the 18’s on VWR springs? Must be a decent offset! 

 

Is that circa 500bhp from 1.9bar I heard? 😮

Mine will be approx 540bhp. 

I will be up in Northumberland on the 13th.

It will be for road use with maybe 3-4 trackdays a year.

Shame about 13th

Ford RS day booked on 29th June.....always a great day with so,e fabulous old stuff.

 

Good to see you'll take it on circuit. I only do a couple of events in mine and the rest in the valver as I want to preserve the R for road use.

 

Great build btw.

 

Thinking about the new BCS exhaust for mine to finnish it off.

19x8.5” TDPR 1.3’s ET45 with 5mm rear spacers.

Yes, these V5 turbos romp on power wise.

Right, a bit of an update..........

 

After a few maps with Underground Performance, I ended up booking a full on dyno day all to myself, courtesy of Steve at Statller in Sheffield. Steve did the dyno work and I did the remote tuning with Alex and Mickey at UGP (Underground Performance) along with sharing the VCDS logging. Several dyno runs and many files later we settled on 550bhp and 525lbft.

Midrange boost was set at 34psi with some decent timing advance without going mad. 

What can I say about the car now?.........It’s quick, it’s brutal, it’s smooth, it’s quiet, it’s loud.....it’s basically perfect. The car has what you’d call a schizophrenic personality, which all depends on what mode you put it in and how you drive it in that mode.

To be honest, I never thought that I would have a car that would excite me as much as my old 6R did, but WOW! This 7.5R has done it. The results on the road speak for themselves too. Alex at UGP has basically the same car, on the same hardware and software as mine and his just did an official [email protected] on 98 ron in daily driver spec. My results are attached including a few dragy runs (sorry, no 1/4 mile time until I go to the Pod😉)

Just a little bit of power eh? hows the DQ381 holding up with it i'm sure i have heard some speak of it having some torque limits they were causing issues for stage 3 ? 

All the torque limit issues floated away when I went with TVS for the DSG mapping. Underground Performance worked wonders on the engine mapping too. 😎👍

Great build. 

 

Leyo catch can easy fit?

Cheers Bowen. It is a bit of a faff to be fair. Taking out the top part of the screenwash bottle and access to the separator on the head are the fiddliest parts.🥴

New paddle extensions fitted over the weekend. Much better feel than the stick on ones I had before. Literally a 2 minute job and well worth it.😎👍

Nice

What make are those and where did you source them?

Likewise where did you get your Carbon mirror caps. My EBay  items have gone milky / hazy on the covers after just 1 year 😡

I bought them from AliExpress. £18 inc. delivery. 
my caps aren’t carbon, they are sprayed in the body colour. 👍
