  1. Of course they don't. NEO25T's high tech diagram explains it perfectly. The pump is run from the power from the battery positive which flows from terminal 30 to 87, through the pump and back to earth...when the relay is activated by the power coming from the ignition source through 85 to 86 (or the other way round as you will have discovered it matters little) and then to the ECU where it is earthed as with most things connected to the ECU. BTW the best place for a fuse is between the battery and #30
  2. If you did a search on this site you would find multiple tutorials on how to do this. I will link you to one and if you can't/won't follow it then best to go to a sparky lest you blow up your car (and yourself...natural selection in action?).

    Gidday! What modifications does it have already?
  4. KiwiRS4T

    Too small. Don't need breathers. As above read the oil control thread if you have a problem (maybe start half way through):
  5. KiwiRS4T

    Where's the abuse? Road testing with very conservative driving.

    It is theoretically possible but most unlikely that the wire will break and short out in the middle of the night. It is more likely to break while you are driving it and you can do something about it. You should be more worried about Brexit and Global climate change.
  7. Advice above stands. Look for a cheap flight, pay cash on sight and drive it home.
  8. I ran 3deg neg camber on the track and it was great - definitely faster through the corners. Having easily adjustable arms the theory was to return to neg 1 for the road but since you effectively need a full alignment with each change it didn't happen. So it was cr*p on the road - skittish and chewing out tyres. If you can manage a lot of track time in a short period it might be worth doing but otherwise best to go with a street friendly set up.

    A good tune will take a total of up to 8 hours depending on the variables (adjustable cam gears etc). The tuner will want to keep it overnight to optimise the cold start and cold running. I have never heard of a tuner breaking things to create more work but then you are in England!
  10. Do you have the appropriate ECU and loom?
  11. You may find when your power level goes up that you need to directly wire the Walbro or it can run out of puff. Should be simple when you have put the battery in the boot.

    If you have a Link it makes sense to use it to control boost (with a Mac solenoid). You only need one boost setting (why would you have an unsafe one?). Limit boost with your accelerator. Yes the Neo has GTR rods. 300KW should be fun.

    Its quite normal to overfill for track use so don't panic if you drop a bit more in. But it makes sense to put about 4L in and then dip it. Assume that you will replace the oil filter every time.
  14. KiwiRS4T

    Not assuming anything about your level of knowledge so just for the record no RB ECUs are tunable. You will need as a minimum a device to interrrupt the signal to or from the ECU or a replacement chip (Nistune) or an aftermarket ECU
  15. Yep this is in the manual. Locate the "air bleed" wire behind the drivers kick panel, it's a plug with a single wire either side (usually green socket, white plug). In my S1 Stagea its a very small black plug taped to a loom with a single yellow wire with a green trace going to the plug and a single black wire going to the socket. Disconnect it. Start car. As key comes back to the ON position, within 10 seconds, depress brake pedal 5 times, 4WD light will start flashing to indicate you are in 2WD mode. You need to do this every time you start the car. To go back to 4WD mode, turn car off, reconnect plug and off you go. And if you plan to do this a lot you can put a switch in somewhere. But if you plan to do a day's drifting better to remove the front drive shaft.
