  1. Sounds like an awesome project. Good luck with it mate.
  2. I agree. Comes with gannets drain plug. I also got to -10 an weld on fittings. For head drain and catch can drain.
  3. Hello everyone. My last part arrived today. Garage101 9L sump extension. Looks pretty good. Nice finish. Baffles have cosworth rubber one way gates which can't jam like metal ones.
  4. Hello everyone. Yesterday was a busy day. OS88 has arrived. So has the quad plate clutch, the JUN GT intake manifold with throttle body. That last one will be going up for sale as I have since gone for a DBW throttle. Removed and packed up the transfer case to go to TSS for a service/check over and a full strengthening package. Would like to the JDM Garage for being able to help with parts with all of the troubles they have gone through. Glad to hear they are running bigger and better then ever. Will definitely use them again. Also advance thanks to The Skyline Shed for being able to squeeze my work in on such short notice. Car will be covered with appreciation sticker for everyone who helped me.
  5. Thank you everyone for your advice. Spoke to my tuner again. He took me for a drive in an r34 that is a nitto 2.8 with a 6870. Making 600hp on 98ron. It was so much fun. Very little lag. His words were "forget boost. We'll make 800 easy". He said that he keeps boost low because it gives the client the abity to use any 98ron fuel. If you can stick to one type, say bp ultimate, we will cater a tune for that. I guess after a 5 year wait and more money spent then I ever thought possible, I don't want to be disappointed. I am pretty sure I won't be. Thanks for the advice fellas.
  6. Nice. What was it like to drive on the street?
  7. The setup is for drag and roll racing. But it will also double as my daily. I would like to see around 600-700awhp on 98 Ron. That'll give me and my son the giggles on the freeway. I can't see any dyno results with a similar sized turbo on 98ron. Or any videos of one on the road either. If e85 wasn't an hour rou d trip, I'd use it all the time.
  8. No shit taken. I realise and accept that this will be very different on e85. More fuel, more gas, quicker spool, lower temps, more power. Everything going well the car will be on run in tune before Christmas. I guess it is all just a guess until it's on the dyno/street.
  9. My GTR, if it ever gets finished, will be my daily driver. In Perh e85 is still quite rare so I'll be using 98ron and go e85 when I go racing. Looking at all the dyno results, there is a huge variance in boost levels on 98ron fuel. My builder doesn't want to go much over 14-16psi. I see some people running close to 2bar. The engine is a 3.2L nitto with a precision 7685 running 9.0 comp ratio. What are people's theories, experiences, views, opinions on what is a safe boost level. Im not chasing 1000hp+ for street but I don't want a lazy 400hp car either.
  10. Im guessing you aren't married. I beraly survived buying all of this once.
  11. Haven't had anything to write about for a while. Yesterday had a large delivery if parts from Golbys. It's been a 4 month wait but things are starting to move forward again. Also learned that my OS88 gearbox, OS quad plate clutch and JUN plenum have arrived in Australia. So I hope to have them by the end of this month. Still waiting for PWR radiator but car is booked in for 29th of November to have everything fitted and start running the engine in. Might do a full noise run this year.
  12. It's both bore and stroke. Can only be done with billet block due to amount of meat that needs to be removed to accommodate the crank and pistons. I've yet to see one reviewed in any way but they use much wider bearings to make sure the extra side load won't chew them out. Sounds amazing.
  13. How do you find the 3.4? I was talked out of it at the time of my build and went 3.2 instead. Now I'm considering selling up and going billet 3.6
  14. I hope so. I think it will come down to the skill of the tuner. What's the rest of your setup? Keep us posted with your results if you don't mind.
  15. Man that would be killer setup for a 2.6. You'd hit full boost by 3500. Gearbox braker. I wonder if this is a new generation of turbos again.
  16. Hello. Sorry it's been a while since I have updated the build. With this constant "we are open and or closed" in every state, parts are getting delayed. Was hoping to have it running in October. Now I'll be lucky to see it this year. But I did get a nice surprise from powertune today. Bosch 82mm DBW throttle. Gear position sensor Holinger strain guage.
  17. Ordering turbo smart race port gen V. Was going to run one on either side of intercooler piping. You recon one on the turbo side will be enough.
  18. Running a trust drag intercooler (works fine and satisfies my early japanese tuner look nostalgia) piping will be all custom made to suit. We will be running around 40psi of boost. Engine is sleeved and can hold 60psi if needed. Hopefully not. Just want to make sure that when throttle is shut off at high rpm, all of that air is vented out. Just extra precaution. Bovs are relatively cheap. Turbos aren't.
  19. Im sure there will be a truck full of hoses, clamps, fittings, etc etc etc. Car is coming back from panel and paint today. 0 rust, all new engine bay panels, strengthened welds. Can't wait.
  20. So waiting on a quote for the last part of the shopping list. Suggestions and advice always welcome. Precision 7685gen2 with T4 6boost manifold and 60mm gate. Ceramic coated with exhaust benie. 2x turbosmart bovs 3x walbro 535lph pumps (1 for main tank. 2 for surge tank) Raceworks 2.8l surge tank 2000 fuel pressure regulator Nitto full gasket kit Nitto 1.2mm head gasket. Clear front cam cover Billet top cam covers Haltech 2500 Ati balancer Prp r35 coil kit Prp pro 36-2 cam/crank trigger kit Pwr 55mm radiator. The rest I either have or its in transit.
  21. Yeah I kept hearing the ID2000 are ok to run on e85 but seals swell if e85 is left in them for a few days. Plus with power I am chasing I would have to run them at over 90%. Getting Dekas made sense. As for impedance, happens to all of us after a long night's drinking ethanol. Ill let Haltech sort that out. Aparently for a large Injector they are pretty good at idle and cruise.
  22. It's nice to come home and find car related presents at your door. Deka 2400cc injectors arrived today. Little by little we are getting there.
