  1. yeah have seen those but wondered why so many holes as well as the bit where they say "may require modification " to fit to certain applications, id like to know what they have fitted like from someone not sellin em hahahah. so ill perhaps use the K+N Apollo enclosed pod i have laying about in the mezzanine of the shed if it will physically fit in the area, or just make my own bastadised version from cardboard to get a pattern then buy some ally sheet and use the nutsert gun
  2. i actually dont think they ended up doin a comp check, cos it started to do what it was told, so on my upcoming rostered days off ill do one myself just with a cheapy test kit ive got laying around somewhere from motorbike days. ive seen some enclosures made with poly card and aluminium etc, just wondered if anyone had a pattern kicking around? so ill pose the question to the forum in general if i cant find one without having to trawl through millions of pages when the search function annoys me fo rnot giving the answers i seek as per std
  3. finally have an update after what seems like for-bloody-ever!!!! thankfully the car is now taking timing and we think it was a combination of a dodgy AFM (bosch rip-off) and the CAS on the front of the motor not reading correctly and confusing each other . the Bosch AFM was purchased from a reputable parts company for just under $300, so they are going to take it back and assess it to see whether it is a dodgy unit or just a plain out and out rip-off unit that snuck through from their supply chain. several other OEM Jecs AFM units were tried, but as they are no longer available through nissan the units were all second hand, and took a few goes to get one that was reading correctly, had one that was leaning out real bad, another that just flat out threw codes, and finally on the 3rd go we stole the one of the tuners own R32 and used it for now to get the car at least half way tuned. picked up the car today so that i can drive it while the tuners missus goes in to have their kidlet, then once hes back on deck we can get the tune finished off for both 98 and the sugar juice E85, for the most part the E85 tuning is done with a few different dilution ratios, but so far the thing is a frickin rocket compared to before, it is holding 20+ psi no problem and pulling like a train, so cant wait to see how it goes once the tune is all tickled up. now all i am pondering is whether to keep the factory airbox with the K+N panel filter, or go to a boxed pod, as it has the pod on at the moment and am liking the flutter hahahaha, can anybody point me in the right direction for a pod box that isnt too much of a turd to fit?
  4. I'd love an audi rs6 but I'm not bulk rich, so the stagea is as close as I'll get ha ha ha, and yeah fully agree that if I added it all up between car and bikes over the years it'd be a comfortable house 😔
  5. Nah not at all, engine is running again as of last night, new flex fuel pump and lines, adjustable reg, hardwire kit etc etc were all fitted yesterday, so now the testing will commence. And I thought I was half impatient, jeebus Hahahah KiwiRS4T you're keener than me!, but I spose I'm half dreading the outcome since it could possibly be a wallet drainer.... 😥
  6. I've been at work all weekend so I dunno, will be calling the workshop tomorrow to see if it's been done, dropped off the ecu on Friday morning and they were going to be spannering on it that arvo, so am hoping it's been tested etc
  7. Fair enough, ecu is on way back from Nistune so should be in the hand either tomorrow or Friday
  8. Yeah we are doin a comp test as soon as ecu is back in car, as well as changing the cas contraption on front of engine, and hopefully either of those will be a steer in the direction of the issue
  9. OK thanks to all for the insight, I'll show the guys working on it all of the suggestions and see if we can find a favorable resolution
  10. Will get the guys to look into this as soon as ecu is back from Nistune, cheers
  11. Old intercooler was return flow from just jap, new cooler flows heaps better intake tract is about 1.2mtrs shorter and runs a lot cooler to the touch even after about an hour of driving, still cold to touch, all new piping so clean as a whistle and showed no improvement with timing issues after changed to new cooler
  12. New balancer is being fitted already as old one was getting tired and perished, will then try timing light etc, cam gears are std OEM stuff, and new belt was fitted couple weeks ago whilst it was opened up to check it hadn't skipped a tooth or 9. Currently waiting for the ecu to return from Nistune after having E85 harness fitted and a general checkover found nothing out of the ordinary
  13. I'll see if the vct bits have been sussed out, new timing belt and adjusters fitted in last couple of weeks to ensure it hadn't been skipped a tooth on pulleys etc, did ask if the bull nose bit on front of cam was free and clean and all reports were it looked fine by them. When you say slots in back, do you mean on the bull nose bit or the cam itself?
  14. Brand new bosch 725cc from efi solutions and no sign of running out of room for flow, and have just got new pump and adjustable reg fitted ready for E85
  15. Have spoken to engine builder, and they can only vaguely remember what piston they used in engine, said they reckon it was a modified wiseco piston, so my thought is that next steps are comp test to see if excessive, and the throw E85 at it and see what it does from there. Then if that fails yank it out, peel it open and put a proper f**king set of neo piston in it just to be certain
