Project STurdteen: Installing Parts Shop Max Suspension

by Rathyna Gomer


Hopefully, you've been keeping up with the awesome progress that we've been making on Project STurdteen. We just finished installing some KW Clubsports and some Progress swaybars. We also gave you all a sneak peek of the Parts Shop Max (PSM) suspension parts. Now we've reached the the last phase of the suspension overhaul, and we are installing the PSM parts. 

Let's start with the rear setup: 


After removing the rear axle and previously installed rear 5-lug hub, we installed the rear lower control arm. 
The LCA bolts are tightened. When the vehicle is at ride height, the rear LCA’s adjustment is made perpendicular to the car. This allows for both proportional and linear adjustment of track width and camber.
The rear LCA is now in place.
Let’s take a look at the Limit Break toe control brackets.

Can you tell your estimated power / spool requirement ? The garrett gtx2867r line is a very nice addition to a drift sr20, as long as you do not need gobs of power. With a twin scroll setup and some cams it gets in the high 400 figures with a nice torque curve and pretty speedy spool time. (this is the last dyno done on the first tuning : https://vimeo.com/65543081 . I do not have a video of the second one; there was a 2" diameter with firewall thingy in the exhaust that got removed, they did hit around 480. That engine lived for a year in the french drift championship then was sold and swapped for a V8. It still is running today)

Bigger turbos will rob some (needed) low end torque, so it all depends on your requirements.

That is pretty impressive for an SR. They tend to get unreliable as you approach the 500 hp level. I think 2013 was the last year an SR20 ran in FD.

I am aiming for around 350 reliable horsepower in this car.

Do you use Boeshield T-9 to rustproof your suspension?
