  1. I was pretty gutted to hear this, what an ambassador and true balls out driver she was, did you see the Ford transit challenge on the ring when she was overtaking motorbikes... phenomenal... 🔥
  2. Hi, after going to the drags again and still failing to get into the 13’s I think my next step is to get hold of a high stall TC. If anyone has one for sale that stalls up around 2800/3000 or anything more than the standard TC then I’m interested. Car is an R33 Gtst spec 2. Cheers Paul
  3. R33 gtst spec 2 automatic. Ran 14.02 @ 107mph last weekend on a new map with higher boost. emanage ultimate hybrid turbo 440cc injectors big Intercooler z32 maf 3” exhaust all the way through no nos 225/55/16 on the rears, pineapples fitted. Can’t seem to crack into 13’s I think a high stall tc is in order, launching around 2k isn’t cutting it..
  4. Cheers, hopefully I can enjoy it now for a couple of years till I get used to the power. ?
  5. Hi, The problem is fixed, I took it to a mate of mine that mapped his own car on the Emanage ultimate. He spent a good long time looking at the wiring. The injector earth wire had a dry joint in the pin in the loom connector and eventually snapped when we went to road map it so that got a new soldered lug. The lambda sensor was goosed so that got replaced. The SAFC 2 I was using to monitor knock still had a map on it and was wired in series with the Emanage wiring which was causing issues so the AFM side of it got removed, the AFM (z32) was spiking at 3.8 volts then dropping to 2.8volts straight after which was also causing problems so he “clamped the voltage?” Apparently it’s not to be used as a permanent fix it’s till I buy another AFM. We spent a couple of hours driving around and doing pulls while he sat on an ancient laptop typing and clicking away saying, “try that” and “do that again” until he turned to me and said right let’s turn the boost up. At 18 psi it felt immense and it really was quick enough but he said I could go more so I did but in the end I settled at 19psi as upping it more didn’t seem to feel any quicker. All in all I was on the road around four hours and in his garage at least a day ? Its quite quick now, well for an auto. Well, that concludes my thread, thanks for all your advice and help ? Cheers Paul
  6. Quick update.. So the car go’s to a show this weekend and I know driving without a decent map could be engine suicide but I’ve had the fuel curve looked at and have been assured that’s it’s safe and there’s so much timing pulled out of it that it won’t det so I’ll trundle down to the show. Took it out this saterday just gone to make sure everything is just so and ended up forgetting that it shouldn’t be thrashed until it’s been looked at properly and gave it the full biscuit... to my surprise it took off like hell in the night, it felt like it did previously, like before I lost the 58hp the only thing I’ve done recently is stop the re circ from the cam covers to the intake and blank off the lines from the plenum to carbon canister (now gone). I’m not complaining but I’d like to know what the hell is going on still, maybe the maf needs a clean? It is third hand so I may try that.... I’m getting it totally looked at early next month, the entire shooting match mechanically and ECU side by somebody that is very familiar with the emu and can spanner as well.... Will report back...
  7. So I got a pal of mine who’s mapped a few Emanage ultimates to plug his lap top into the Emanage to see if there was anything untoward or just to look at the map (it’s just numbers to me) . I was a bit out off at the shock he was in as he said that it was retarded across the entire rev range, also, the afm was selected as a standard afm and not as a z32 one which I have, the injectors were also standard when they should have been selected as 440cc. We took it out with his wide band stuffed up the exhaust ? He said it was really rich, we got back to mine and he tested the lambda sensor, it was “flatlined” so that needs replacing. The only thing that I can confirm is that the brown plug behind the drivers headlight does not lock the timing at 15 degrees when it’s unplugged but does lock the auto box in third as I asked him to measure it. So that is good for mapping on the dyno I guess. So, I’m going to get a new sensor and ask him to have a crack at mapping it. Or at least ask him to take another look. Will report back... ? Just for reference its this brown plug ?
  8. You’re right, the turbo did sound whistley on the drive up to the mapper and doesn’t sound half as bad now. The turbo did over come the leak but at the cost of working harder. Surely it would have build boost differently to if the gasket wasn’t leaking? That’s the best thing about analogue gauges as you can observe fluctuations and trends, digital doesn’t really let you see that unless you are logging...
  9. Really? It was a pretty disgusting sized leak that showed up on the boost leak test... I’ll try n post the vid up...
  10. Hi guys, Firstly, I hope this in the right section and sorry if it’s not.. I’m a bit of a optional extra/rare part conisure for my r33 Gtst auto. I’ve collected a few bits for her now and have just got my hands on some wing mirror eyebrows, the wing mirrors they are still attached to came from a dark coloured skyline as the wing mirrors are what looks like metallic charcoal but the eyelids are darker and almost look black. Were these eyebrows colour coded or were they all black?? Havent much hope anyone will know this but need to ask all the same... Cheers ?
  11. I want a boost gauge as that would have shown my inlet mani gasket had gone a while back, I also want to watch gearbox oil temp so thinking of getting both as greddy gauges in a pillar pod. I have another sensor in front of the throttle body wired back to a digital meter that’s sat snug in the front of the ash tray which shows inlet temps off boost in summer sits around 20 -25 degrees and at wot it can shoot up but never on the loud pedal long enough for it to show above 40/45 really.. I'm thinking afr would be a good one also but never really needed until this type of thing popped up or if I was trying to map my Emanage myself... Happy Christmas everyone by the way. ?
  12. Doh!! Yup you are absolutely right, I often see egt gauges for sale and think will their function ever really be needed as if your engine is good then it’s good but in this situation it would be a bloody useful reference... I just don’t want to have a multitude of gauges as I personally think it can get a bit much...
  13. Will crack on with some testing ? Never overheats to my knowledge obviously going by the stock temphreture gauge though.. Still on a standard recirc but I have an genuine adjustable greddy one that I can fit if it’s that. All hoses from what I can tell are in good nic .... I’m not there when it’s being mapped ever but last reports were that turning the boost up and advancing the ignition made no difference. I’m fairly confident the brown plug locked the timing at 15 degrees but will need to confirm this... Cheers
  14. Well the car drives fine just low on power, Did a compression test 1-167psi 2-165psi 3-153psi 4-153psi 5-162psi 6-167psi Taking into account I have a 1.1mm head gasket then the compression test looks ok to me. So the quest continues to find where my 58hp has gone....
