View Full Version : The V12 Mk2 thread

Ok this should be good, who'd like to see a V12 Mr2 being built?

I'm taking delivery of a V12 very soon for this very purpose, the V8 build was a challenge and will be completed as a road going car by JAE with only its bodywork left to do, so i need to get my teeth into something new.

Just like the V8 build i'm not shooting for mega BHP (you can do that with a 3s-gte) , i've got 350bhp in NA form with the V8, and expecting around 400bhp NA with the V12, so it won't be slow, but being done just to prove it can be.

It will also have a 6 speed box.

(same thread running on a few forums to get peoples opinions on it)

Nik we need a 2.12 swap section lol.

Discuss!

Off top of my head i can only think of a few V12's that are around now what one you going for Paul? I'd say for BMW seeing as an Aston or Lambo engine might be a fair bit of money!

Wasn't there a Toyota V12 at some point. In a big Japan only Sedan. One was slotted into a Supra from what I remember.

Look forward to seeing how it goes Paul, just get the other done for JAE first as I really want to see that in the metal :smile:

Yes the BMW V12 is the chosen weapon of choice this time, and on a Mk2, bloody thing won't go into a Mk1. I won't be starting this until the V8 is 100% done though.

Superb Paul, pushing the boundaries yet again :praise2:. I must admit around London I occasionally hear the the sound and Aston or Maserati makes when the 12 pots are firing away when the loud pedal s pressed and it is awesome.

ps. you looking for a donor car BTW - for research purposes of course :eusa_whistle:

Convertible mk2 just to hear the sound all the time, hmmm if any one can do it it's you bud, I'm just not feeling it to be honest, technically it will be cool and fast and probably the only one ever to be built.
Good on you mate I will be subscribing to this thread just get the mk1 ready for jae .

What's the script then, extended chassis? Longitudinal? Transverse and extra wide car?

Mad project, well in.

dgh938peg
06-02-2011, 23:56
It's gotta be longitudinal Obler - the block on the bimmer V12 is really unconducive with transverse mounting. The sump would be a headache also. Really interested on your measurements for this lot Paul :)

Goldy
07-02-2011, 01:19
Paul I think you're totally nuts but totally awesome idea! I am soo subscribed to this thread, I remember when I was a lad this idea being mooted about somewhere on this forum, will be great to see it come to fruition!

Please please please finish the V8 first though!

BMW V12 + 6 speed box would be great.... you fancy making it 4wd for an extra challenge?

07-02-2011, 04:14
ok, If I was to do this, Id go north/south(like the v8.) tube chassis rear obviously.

are you poaching a v12 from an 850 or something?...those things are immense...

would you do it like the lambo? and mount the engine backwards and run a drive shaft under/beside/through the sump?
or like the v8 with the trans straight off the back?

Paul Woods
07-02-2011, 08:18
Thanks for the support with this one chaps, i won't be starting it until the V8 is done though but it can be discussed to death here until i do start.

I will be using a BMW 850 motor mounted inline with the audi 6 speed box exactly like the V8 is in the Mk1. Without stretching the chassis it will mean using all of the space behind the seats again just like the V8 Mk1. I haven't taken any preliminary measurements but i've seen pics of the Audi V8 into Mk2 and it barely encroaches into the cabin. Mk2's have a lot of dead space behind the seats, lots more than a Mk1 has, so i'll be taking advantage of that.

The BMW motor is 29.25" from front to rear, but i think i can ditch stuff from the front to get that down a few inches, but it should still fit even at 29"

Paul Woods
07-02-2011, 08:51
Moving to the 2.12 section lol

snowtigger
07-02-2011, 10:19
Is the v10 not be easier to fit or is that a future fitment, as the price for that engine is horrendous, but 500bhp can't be sniffed at.
Also Paul did you see the e30 v12 twin turbo motor on YouTube stonking bhp and massive torque, will give most of the supercars a good run for the money.

What's the Audi lump end to end without gearbox?

Rosssco
07-02-2011, 22:04
FFS! Mk2.12, becoming a bit of mouthful!

Paul, I thought I'd migrate a bit of the info from the red place to the proper home of such discussion in case its any use. More photos of the 6-speed gearbox (Audi code: OB1) I bought for use with a ABZ V8, my original thinking being I could avoid firewall / chassis member / fuel tank mods or ANY cabin intrusion. That's because Audi (in an attempt to move the engine rearwards for weight distribution porpoises), put the differential in front of the clutch and flywheel. Effectively, if you run this gearbox with a slight bit a drive shaft angle, the rear hubs can be in line with the bell-housing face of the engine. So a ~20" long V8 will fit in the ~21-22" space between this dimension.. Just :thumbsup: Anyhoo, I digress.

As its fitted to 2.0 Turbo Audi's, which standard produce around 250lb/ft of torque (and weigh ~1500kg), I was pretty happy that it would cope well, perhaps even with the standard clutch, with the ~300lb/ft of a 4.2 V8 in a lighter car. Its a pretty much untested gearbox however (as its relatively new) so I'm unsure how it will do with a larger capacity V12... Audi don't tend to do many weak gearboxes though, as can be seen with the 01x, which originally came with similar output engines. Anyhoo, it would potentially save you a good 4" (:eusa_naughty:), so food for thought!

M70 madness. You're ripe for a headcheck Mr Woods :icon_lol:

Seriously though, this is about the best V12 in terms of availability and noise - see na few in E30s and Lambo reps and they were epic.

I do also recall the Hoopra someone mentioned above - didn't it have about four turbos strapped on to it or something?

thats a nifty little trans, though you probably wouldnt say little if you dropped it on your foot.

so have you got a shell in mind?. just remember the targa's actually have more "depth" of material in the sills and pillars...the extra reinforcing will be your friend

Id start with a targa shell, and get the roof from a hardtop and weld in the missing section, though if your gonna add a jungle gym kinda surplus really....lol

if adding a jungle gym, Idactually reinforce the sills,cut a hole in the wheel arch and slide the pipe inside the sill, or cut away the sill, build the cage and refit the sill.

that way your not encroaching into the door space too much, your not having issues with seat fitment as its narrow in the floor as it is...

is this gonna be a "because I can car" a showing off car, or a racer eventually?

smokey is just as mad as a box of frogs, but you just have to love the japanese samuri spirit.
but one of the reasons we have a speed limit of 70 was because of a racing driver testing a cobra lm at 197 on the m1 as that was the only stretch of straight road at the time and bsa and norton and triumph motor bikes at over 100 are also guilty of road testing flat out there as well, i dont think mr sensible paul will cough cough be braking any speed limits though or doing burn outs on his expensive tires on the public highways hes much to sensible?

Cheers Ross, after speaking to you on the pink pages we think that trans is the way to go to get as much length saved as possible, you may well have saved us 5-6" there.

This will be a pure "because we can" car, it won't even be detailed, just pulling it off will be the mission. Good advice on the T-bag, frustratingly i chucked one away last month, which would have been a great donor car, but they are ten a penny these days.

Doesn't look too big does it... Its the length though. The Audi V8 is a short fat little f*&ker (fat in a wide sense, it actually pretty light). Pretty sure you could reduce length of the V12 by getting rid of the massive front drive / timing pulley unless it also acts as a balancer (spare wheel?) and possibly doing away with the twin distributers and run a wasted spark set-up.

Olie, missed your post for some reason. I managed to get mine for 350! Which is pretty cheap considering it came with all the required bits other than the clutch / flywheel, and only has 15k on it.

No, I've got a JJF box (I think, something like that). I think the KBZ / KXP boxes are normally fitted to the TFSI engines, but the difference in these codes could be purely down to manufacturing location or engine / chassis figuration, not sure of its anything to do with physical gearbox differences.. They look externally identical from what I've seen. Who knows though!

Pretty sure that knife edging a crankshaft's main purpose is to lighten & balance it. I struggle to understand why FP cranks can spin faster than CP ones?

A bit more gen here but still doesn't explain why they spin faster

I had always wondered what a flat plane crank was, so looked it up & before i got to wikipedia found this -
http://www.r1-forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=254956

seems to say that that a cross plane crank doesnt sound as good (to some peoples ears) has potential disadvantages in vibration & intake/exhaust pulse to be ironed out with piping, but potential advantages in grip & tyre wear.

Paul probably picked it for packaging reasons, availability and parts supply!
thanks lads, just listened to an engine I like & then really learned something there

Aurally, nothing beats a flat plane crank. It's like having 2 engines running in perfect syncopation, sounds great.

Knife edging a crank is done for one reason(you could lighten it in other ways, without knife-edging)...when done correctly, the crank will move through it's lubricating oil(regardless of sump-type) with VASTLY reduced drag(which is of course, parasitic)...strain on the piece goes down, and output forces go up(all others are unaffected)...that's rpms and power, for the laymen... :thumbsup:

Paul Woods

The V12 has landed so let the games begin! We got to work sorting some fundamentals of the swap, now ignore the grot on this engine, we aren't bothered about that for the time being, this engine is being used as a test mule to make everything from. When the time comes for it to run we will strip it and rebuild it, but until then it only has to be dimensionally right.

First issue we found was the throttle bodies were facing the wrong way, well wrong for an Mr2 engine bay, so luckily for us we found that BMW have made the plenums symmetrical, not only that but they have unboltable ends, meaning you can bolt the throttle bodies on the other end of the plenum and the cover plates on the throttle end.... how cool is that? So we will have that Lambo'esque twin air filters shooting rearwards in the engine bay.

Here's the blanking plates fitted to the normally throttled end...

http://www.woodsport.org/forum/images/recovered/2011/02/212.jpg

Here you can see the Tb fitted to the normally blanked end (yellow)... tp fit the other side i need to move the oil filler spout, no biggy.

http://www.twobrutal.co.uk/forum/images/recovered/2011/02/84.jpg

Work then began on making this leviathan shorter, it's too long at the moment, much as i like sitting close to the windscreen i'd prefer not to have my nose squashed against it. This meant ditching the distributors, a good 2 inches saved here.....

http://www.twobrutal.co.uk/forum/images/recovered/2011/02/85.jpg

We aren't bothered about how far forward the crank pulley sits, that's in the tunnel so it can please itself.

Lastly we will need to make blanking plates for the distributor holes...

http://www.woodsport.org/forum/images/recovered/2011/02/213.jpg

I've also go a plan to ditch the water pump and run an electric remote one.

It might Goldy, this engine is 29" long from bellhousing to pulley face, that's long! I can get the critical top of engine measurement down to around 26" i think, which gives me space to get the driveshafts in line.

Paul Woods
15-02-2011, 08:47
Also i've decided for simplicity and economy i am going to run this engine purely on LPG, so i can do away with the entire fuel system, that means i can junk...

Petrol tank, so no shortening work needed, it can just go.
All fuel lines
Injectors
No sensors at all need wiring on the engine, i'll just run a dual closed loop lambda controlled set up with two mixers, one feeding each bank, or if the budget allows two full 6 cylinder sequential LPG kits, that's costly though.

So all i need to work on is sparks, a Vems firing two EDIS 6 coilpacks looks favourite at the minute, or a Megajolt, needs more research.

15-02-2011, 09:22
Just thinking Paul..... Not sure you can do that mate - pretty sure you need to start a car on fuel then switch over to LPG for running .... Some know it all at work mentioned it to me when we were discussing the merits of me buying an Audi S8 the other day. What i am saying is i might not be right!

Paul Woods
15-02-2011, 11:36
Yeah I'm a qualified LPG installer too danski and you can easily start an engine on gas, it's just not considered the correct way. I've manually started all of my LPG cars on gas before.... I might add a pair of cold start injectors with a tiny fuel cell for a bit of cold enrichment.

Paul Woods
15-02-2011, 19:41
Dan the S8 would need a fully sequential direct injection system, same kit i had fitted to my Bmw 325, all fully mappable but the biggest issue is keeping the stock ECU happy (they tend to throw a fit when one knocks the petrol injectors off on purpose!).... so it would need a top end kit, probably in the region of 900 for the kit and a weeks installation labour.

You will get a better deal at the big companies that specialize in LPG fitting everyday, they do package turnkey prices, much like we do with the engine swaps.

Leak down your new v12 engine. They are notorious for oval bores and you can neither hone or bore them due to the pistons running direct on silicon etched alloy bores. 12 Darton sleeves would be quite expensive and there are about 2 people in the usa who can do it to that engine.

4wd is the way to go, I'm sure I can coax you into trying that: a friend made a 4wd Punto using an Integrale as the base, all of which he did in his garage, so I'm sure you'd be able to do something similar.

"One" of my Audi A5 gearboxes arrived today, all your fault Ross, i'm buying them in bulk!

The great news is this box weighs a lot less than my A4 box in my Mk1, i wish this had been around when i was doing that project, i reckon it's a good 20kgs lighter. The first thing that's very apparent is the diff area, i am going to have to remove engine block material in this area on the V12 (V8 looks like it will need modifying too), but it shouldn't be a huge problem.

http://www.twobrutal.co.uk/forum/images/recovered/2011/03/36.jpg

Some dimensions for the tranny whores...

http://www.twobrutal.co.uk/forum/images/recovered/2011/03/37.jpg

Oops! wrong link! That'll teach me for typing tranny whore into google :)

The middle of the output shafts are 45mm from the bellhousing face, now i have estimated i will need a 1" thick adapter plate on the V12, but the shafts sit 7" further forward on this box than the older A4 unit, so by my maths i am gaining 4.25" of space by using this gearbox, that's a huge amount. It also means on a V8 swap i gain 5.25", that definately puts the Audi V8 inside the engine bay without having to cut the front wall (at least at the bottom of it and should only need a top access panel if that)

http://www.twobrutal.co.uk/forum/images/recovered/2011/03/38.jpg

So, so far it's all good news, although there is a very long way to go.

OlberJ
07-03-2011, 20:10
Crikey, that really is as far forward as possible! Bravo Audi.

1 last dimension if you please, the width between driveshaft flanges. Tar.

Paul Woods
07-03-2011, 20:18
Well i does throw up other issues being that far forward, the flywheel/transmission plate arrangement is a nightmare, the shaft actually goes through the flywheel assembly. Audi did this to move the front axle forward on the A4/A5 to counteract the understeer issue they had, but according to Clarkson they failed.... still we get the bonus side effect!

Can you elaborate on that dimension you want mate? I'm a little confused, do you want the distance from one driveshaft mounting flange to the other?

snowtigger
07-03-2011, 20:19

maybe a 6 footer could fit in.

OlberJ
07-03-2011, 21:24
Aye, trying to guage just how much the subframe would need shifted about to get this to fit.

The rear tie link mounting pointss on the subframe are awfy close together on the Mk2 so what you thinking there?

On the Mk1, you'd maybe be able to get the box in without moving the triangles?

Paul Woods
08-03-2011, 07:48
The gearbox will sit over the top of it with a channel cut out of the subframe and reinforced underneath it, and Mk2 subframes come in two types with the pivot points close together and far apart, i'll be using the far apart subframe.

On my Mk1 i didn't need to move my triangles at all, it all fitted as stock, it was just the crossmember on the chassis i needed to chop out, take a look at my build thread you will see what i mean.

What utter nonsense: you're suggesting that it's easier for a "twonk" to stitch another floorpan onto another car, to make it 4wd, than it is to transplant an engine alone.

First off have you ever watched Bangalore bangers or the English garage on discovery were they stuck a Subaru floorpan under a mk1 golf, they used a laser aligned system to fit it all in.
But it looked nothing like a golf in the end and did go like the clapers which it should do as less weight and more power.
Drive train loss though will take 17 to 25% of that power plus the extra weight of a rear diff prop shafts and transfer box, so why did lambo build the balbony drivers car special with only rear wheel drive when the 4x4 was faster, because it makes it a better drivers car.
And also let me think, 288gto, gt40,f40, miura,stratos can anybody think of some more?

And I think pauls v8 and my 2gr in the future supercharged v6 may never get all our power down, but that's not the frigging point we have done it cause we can to prove a point, like the v12 in the mk2 or 4x4 a mr2 we do these things because people say it can't be done, and our huge grins as we fire up our mid engined mr2 mk1s we may not be the most powerful or tractable cars but by god we will have some fun driving them.

Gimme a stupidly high powered RWD over 4WD for back lane fun any day of the week!!! Having had several moderately powerful 4WD cars and driven others i'd much sooner have the RWD. The only time i'd want 4wd over rwd is for offroading or dirt rally .... now ... seeing as my two never sees even a slightly damp field i needn't worry. Answer this Munster... Back in the 80's Ford made the RS500 (RWD) with the particulars of demolishing BMW at Brit Touring Car ... which it did. Then when the 2 door cossie ceased they specifically made the Sapphire Cossie in RWD for homologation rules IIRC. Why - if 4WD is better did they not just use the 4WD sapphy cossie if it's soo much better.....

On the V12 there are two raised areas on the back of the engine, one is the crank oil seal housing and the other is a water jacket blanking plate, i have removed the water jacket plate and oil seal housing in this pic...

http://www.woodsport.org/forum/images/recovered/2011/03/206.jpg

The plan is to cut a hole where the crank seal housing sits...

http://www.woodsport.org/forum/images/recovered/2011/03/207.jpg

Then we will make the adapter plate do the job of the coolant cover plate, so it has dual roles, this will just mean drilling through the cover plate to get the position right...

Lyndon i don't need to weld it at all, just cut it, drill some holes, insert some helicoils here and there, that sort of thing.

Today i got an OB1 starter motor (very hard to find!) and worked out how that is going to fit in around the V12, things are tight! Very tight.... but if i grind away enough of the block castings around the starter it will fit by 3mm without thinning the walls of the block itself. This was a make or break situation for the project, the whole thing would need a major rethink if this starter did not fit on the engine side of the gearbox, but it will.... JUST!

This is a library pic to show you the area that needs removing, this will also allow the OB1 Diff to clear the block too.

Nutbar!!! What a leg-end, u deffo need to get it him on here, does that mean you're not going ahead with the V12 MK2 now?

No not at all matey, this guy is relying on my build to finish his own, i'm making his adapter plate etc... he's just dived in from a different direction, i prefer to make engine fit gearbox first then dummy fit the whole lot.

So it's a case of you wait all day for one to come along then two do! :)

Welcome to the nuthouse. Can't believe that there's now two v12 builds going, fantastic. You need to get your own build thread started.

Twobrutal has really reached another level this year, there's now so may V8 builds going on I can't name every swap of the top of my head (used to be AEK, Lilly & Podge), and now two V12 swaps!. We're running out of engines, what's going to be the next swap? Tank engine http://www.lancerregister.com/showthread.php?threadid=332316

I'd definitely leave that in the Veyron, maybe one from a Bentley, fat lardy cars.

Found this the other day.... just for shits & giggles.

I knew the Muira was mounted this way round but didn't know the gearcase was configured as such!
Pretty compact install as v12's go.... AND i reckon that'd drop straight in a mk2 bay....... if you could get one lol!

In any case... is it running yet big man! :rofl:

Wow... that is a fairly interesting gearbox layout. Would love to see some pics of the internals to see how they're taking the drive off the engine.

Google, here I come!

I think ... from looking at the vid, you have clutch and flywheel (big black spinny thing) on passenger side. Also contained in here is a gear assembly to drive the gearbox. That's the alloy lump between the flywheel & diff housing. So yes indeedie a superbly compact layout :)

First thing to remember is this car was built by tractorboys so gearing would be the way out of anything ;)

and here in my best freehand sketchy-poos!

This is nuts... i look forward to seeing it finished! However, i also have some ideas for the next bout of insanity.... an engine that makes the veyron sound like a Ford Pop plus...

Deltic?


Must be easy enough to source/fit. Bet you a hobnob....

Holy bejebus this place has come on leaps and bounds since my 3VZ conversion all those years ago (number 15 i think).

A bloody V12 in a Mk2, that is mental!! so, can i have one!! hahaha!!

Need another two in my life, but this is outa my leauge for now. Might look at turbo or V6 for now.

Was many many moons agon now. Sold her to barronMR on IMOC and he spun the rod bearings at 120 on the motorway!! she has been sat for a few years being robbed for parts, looked a right sorry state, she was in a for sale add on imoc for a part. She's covered in mud and alot of my nice expensive bits are gone, but one upon a time she was awesome!! At her time when i modded it i think she was the most powerfull NA V6 in a Mk2. but that changed quickly as the 2GR swaps started happening!

Just checked photobucket and all my MR2 pics are gone, must of deleted them. should be in my build thread the ones that paul took when she was being done. Mine the first one to roll out his new premesis i think. Aaaah memories!! haha.
