The photo above is of a typical DB7 Vantage in stock form.
This is the V12 DB7 model from Aston Martin. This is
basically the same
engine as the Vanquish but slightly detuned (or perhaps I should say,
not tuned as high) to 420HP. It has dual overhead cams and 48
and is 6.0L displacement. We (Polk Performance) installed twin
I estimated that we should be able to get around 550HP at the crank
just 5psi boost. This car uses 2 Ford EEC-V PCM's, one for
each bank. They operate in a master/slave configuration.
4-2005: Polk Performance made log style exhaust manifolds and did the
custom turbo install. Here are a few pictures of the progress so
6-2005: I temporarily installed the IAC's and Brian Young successfully reflashed both PCM's using the Superchips Custom Tuning
package. We realized that we need to install ACT's in each
bank after the turbo's so we are working on that now. We
also have some other vacuum plumbing issues to clean up. I drove
the car just on my street (slow speeds) and it seems to respond real
well. Once we get the ACT's installed and wired in, we will be ready
for dyno and driveability tuning..
We could not find room for intercooling. One possibility is to use Laminova
intercooler cores inside the factory manifolds.
The intent is to keep it all emission legal.
2006: This car is completed now. It is currently set at only 5psi boost so
power at the wheels is 480HP and 480ft*lbs of torque.
11-2008: The owner is selling this car. The price is $50k or best offer.
