  1. Past hour
  2. That's a tricky one, though. For the compressor to push air it needs force at the turbine to accelerate the turbine&compressor and move the air (which has a mass) - let alone to compress it. That force comes from drive pressure, which is essentially the raw EMAP value you are reading. If you do headwork to require the amount of boost pressure required to move x-amount of air it will reduce the amount of work the turbine needs to do to a degree, meaning a bit less drive pressure required - but the trick there is you have reduced numbers from both sides of the ratio.... so your EMAP reduces, but so does your IMAP and you COULD even find yourself making less power as a result of the reduced boost you have to run to keep the ratio at or below 1:1. It's a bit hard to say which will reduce more, but if I were a betting man I'd be backing the cost vs reward benefit as not being anywhere near as rewarding as just using the turbine speed as the primary warning for overwork, and maybe relaxing your EMAP/IMAP ratio cut off back to even about 130% (which is still quite conservative imho) you will get much better gains than the headwork for no cost or compromise. Just my opinion, but it's become a conversation so I'm throwing it in there. If you were happy with the current power level then thats all good, but if you are looking at spending a bunch more money to try and get more performance when the data suggests the performance is available comfortably with the current package - I'm not sure why you'd not use the obvious approach.
  3. Nah. 10 - 12mm to the top of the pile. As I said, they do have higher grade carpet if you want....but in general, thick plush pile carpets, while being more expensive and "luxury" aren't actually hardwearing.
  4. I would suggest that limiting boost so as not to exceed 1:1 E/I MAP ratio is being far far far too conservative. it is not that long ago that a street turbo car would have 2 or 3 :1 ratio. I would lean on it some more. Even a1.5:1 is absolutely free breathing in real terms.
  5. I guess it depends on where u class map:emap your stopping point. Ie in my instance that's where we stopped and class it as a restriction. Obviously a few things could help the power figure. Better head/cam setup and trial of the 1.45 rear along with not having leaking tbs also.
  6. I'm busy this weekend Trying to get dyno time to dial up a customer's car, then tile shopping again LOL Oh yeah, let's see how I go, I am craving a track day as well
  7. 2003 V35 Skyline 350GT CVT-8 95000KM Interior is in excellent condition for its age All fluids replaced in the last month.

  8. Today
  9. then you should come to Wakefield with me (and Johnny, if I can twist his arm hard enough lol) on December 14th. https://www.facebook.com/events/2380217828932209/ The only downside of a dedicated track car, I cant do these street runs with you guys Would of loved to take my 32 up Macquarie pass with you guys a few weeks back, its like in my back yard lol. Got a good video somewhere of a 5 minute run (no traffic at all) up the pass in my old XT forester.
  10. Welcome Eddy. Tried Just Jap?
  11. Getting that twitch in my eye again . . . . even after being on the Putty Rd on Saturday . . . . . in the rain . . . . had to dial up the concentration level up to 11 !
  12. Or you could complain to your local council about the height of the speed humps ! ? ! !
  13. Yesterday
  14. The OG Skyline mat in my car has the heel bit half disintegrated so was thinking of replacing them. What would be your estimate for thickness (just curious)? 2cm?
  15. Welcome. Throw some good suspension on it?
  16. And, if you search, you find 20+ years of pre-existing learnings.
  17. With that amount of stretch there is a good chance of the tyre slipping off the shoulder with subsequent instant loss of air - seen it before happening to drifters ( better if it happens on the track than on the road).
  18. Please don't spam multiple subfora with the same question.
  19. Hey guys Just wondering if anybody would know weather or not I would need a wheel hub seal when changing my rear wheel hub assembly on my 2000 r34 nissan skyline gt Any help would greatly be appreciated
  20. You like that? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sounds good to me man! Lets make it happen ๐Ÿ˜ I've always been interested in custom car fabrication/sheet metal work etc since I was an apprentice. Did an advanced welding course to learn some more about tig welding and the sheet metal, I just make up as I go along.
  21. Notice that the R35 has sharp edges at the bottom of the tupperware? R32s do not. Pinstriping down there on an R32 would look poxy. There's no "defined" place to put it. There's a big difference between the more organic shapes of early 90s cars and the sharp edged, arbitrarily creased, multicoloured abominations that are made now.
