Escape's Hemi Punisher is running, new pics!

She fired right up and settled right down to an idle. Amazes me how easy it is to swap in larger injectors with the iEMS3 and they start right up. Fuel trims were in the single digits +5/-5.

The engine is an all forged internals 5.7 from Sharadon Performance. She sounds soo sweet, I am sure Escape will fill in some details.

She has gone through three heat up cool down cycles tonight, so after I drop a quart of ATF in to top off the torque converter in the morning, she hits the road for a 50 mile break in run and then an oil change and back out to test out some low boost.

Here are some pics I took tonight of his install.

Enjoy.



Underside shot showing the main components of the system.



Looking from the back forward.



Close up showing the oil pump mounting and the waste gate atmospheric dump. Similar to what the rally cars run, an atmospheric dump for the wastegate reduces overall back pressure on the exhaust side of the turbo allowing it to spool faster. But...... that's a 60 mm wastegate with a 2 1/4" diameter exhaust cut out, so it certainly will not be stealthy under boost!



Side shot looking up. everything is the same height as the bottom of the fuel tank.



Looking straight at eye level from the side, the SRT-8 side skirts will hide everything, but even on a stock Cherokee, it is not visible looking down.



The engine compartment, nice and clean.



Close up of our CNC black anodized vacuum block we use for our add on vacuum system.



The latest Bosch pencil style EV14 fuel injectors, 56 lb capacity at our fuel pressure. These things are sweet, WAY better than the Ford Cobra injectors I was using previously (I see a set coming for mine VERY soon).



Close up of the 50mm BOV and the water/meth injection nozzle.



The iEMS3 wiring harness in the engine compartment. Other than the white Molex connector, it is indistinguishable from the factory harnesses.



Looking from the drivers side.



And finally, the triple gauge pod install, Escape has a little bit of trimming to do, but looks really nice.

More to come as it hits the road.

Re: Escape's Hemi Punisher is running, new pics!

Engine needs to break in before we hammer on it, going out tomorrow set at 3.5 psi for testing, then up to 7 psi when Escape picks it up. In late September at the Monster Mopar weekend, we will be bumping it up to 10 psi when we can get some runs on the track for datalogging.

I can not wait till tomorrow to hear that wastegate, man that is going to be a Loooong 50 miles before I can hit it!

Re: Escape's Hemi Punisher is running, new pics!

lol, I'm your man

it really does look excellent, I'm assuming this is stainless or are you planning to have it coated once you've road tested and proven it?

---------- Post added at 02:50 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:49 PM ----------

We'll have to bring the inlet pipe up the other side of the engine though, bloody steering shaft will be in the way on the Aussie ones. Grrrr.

Oh no, no coating here all of the cold and hot side piping is 304H Stainless Steel. Even all of the mounting tabs and rod hangers are 304 Stainless Steel. Only thing that is not Stainless is the 3.5' diameter air inlet stub.

No carbon steel piping hiding under a coating to rust out from the inside as others use.

It is way more expensive, but the results are well worth it. Aluminized steel is about $3 a foot where the 304H is about $11 a foot.

This is the 3rd 5.7 Turbo Cherokee out the door, and I have another SRT-8 Cherokee system headed to Florida in about three weeks.

Now I just need to find me someone with a 4.7 and I REALLY want to do a Commander.

Give me a jingle some time and let's see if we can work something out.

On the steering shaft. maybe not, if it is inside the frame rail, should not be an issue as I come up on the outside of the frame rail.

Re: Escape's Hemi Punisher is running, new pics!

Ah good stuff Tim, I didn't think you'd go the "cheat" coating mate. I've used HPC coatings http://www.hpcoatings.com.au/pages/about.htm over here on several applications and it's proven awesome stuff but expensive. Stainless is gorgeous too and in comparison (and downtime!) great value for money.
You know, I think you need a WH right hand drive gunea pig to get an install into and template so you can begin exports to the world.

Sure thing.... can you get some more detailed pics of the pipework entering the engine bay and I'll investigate it a little closer.

I'll post up some shots in this thread tomorrow of how it comes up into the engine bay.

I would love to get a system running around down under, the Cherokee is a riot to drive, and no one even suspects a thing..................
