    From what I've seen in Melbourne the LS scene peaked several years ago and then slowed down, and a similar thing happened to the Skyline scene. I think you're spot on, it's all cyclical ... I'm not sure what the cool kids are up to these days, probably modding their EVs.

    Yes, I think it is. Lots of good points made above already so I'll just throw in another perspective – younger people just aren't driving as much anymore: This is from a Sep 2017 report from the RACV. There's some speculation in it as to what's behind this but sounds like further research is needed to better understand why this is happening.

  7. Hey mate, I'd rather sell together but I'll shoot you a PM and see what we can do
  8. There's a lot of FUD around getting a car engineered in VIC, it sounds complicated and expensive but there seem to be surprisingly few first hand experiences on getting it done. A data point of one but I spoke to a guy recently who's got an LS1 in his R34 fully engineered, he said it was not hard at all and cost less than 1k. YMMV, as always.
  9. A quick update for anyone playing at home – this exact setup plus a larger fuel pump made 318rwkw when retuned for E85 in early 2018. So the Trust turnflow definitely goes beyond 300kw. Dyno sheet: https://www.sau.com.au/forums/topic/55845-rb25-turbo-upgrade-all-dyno-results/?do=findComment&comment=7866850 The car ran smoother on E85 compared to PULP but the fuel uneconomy was atrocious – about 20L/100km on average for the less than 1,000km I drove it for before selling. Still not quite the ~35 l/100km Bill posted above though
