That video doesn't really do it justice, but now with the Kakimoto exhaust and holding it back in gears accelerating slowly it sounds nice. Agreed i need to get this thing out and start enjoying it for what its worth.
Sold the pon cams and got a set of Camtech 268 9mm-intake and 272 9mm-exhaust cams from Garage 7, retaining the VCT was my main goal.
Re tune make 326.9 kw, 546.8nm on 22psi thanks to Garage 7.
Brand new standard radiator and rb25 fan blade went back in, the thermos weren't cutting it on the dyno but I hadn't made up a shroud for them so that would have been half the issue solved if i did.
Got out to Skyline nationals 2016 towards the end of last year, show and shine plus the track day. Unloaded the car back at mine after the show and shine i took it for a quick spin around the block, from what I found it sounds like a dud wheel bearing. Cracked the shits that night, tinned on with a mate until early morning and then left for the track day with out the car. Spat the dummy at it and left it alone for a couple of months before I pulled the covers back off.
Ordered a brand new RB25DET gearbox through work, went in early 2017 and test drove it up and down my driveway
Feeling like the car was straying away from its 80's heritage I got my painter to paint up my old redtop covers and GTR intake. Same time swapped back to orange indicators and bought new side markers as they are still available from Nissan.
In the process of swapping over to GTR ITB, bought brand new throttle bodies and the whole swap is getting the genuine catalog thrown at it. Bolts, nuts, gaskets, IACV hoses, tps sensor along with a wider range of speedflow fittings and braided black hose. Adding a coolant bleeder at the same time to cure any air lock that might occur in the head/coolant system, will get a custom swirl pot made too. New plugs for the engine bay will be ordered and wired in at the same time of re looming the engine bay loom
S14/S15 AT performance catch can was ordered from Garage 7 and modified the bracket to suit my setup. Fits as if it was designed for it, more speedflow and braided black hose ordered and installed.
Have ordered some carbon style bonnet struts so I can get rid of the bonnet rod out the boot.
The ideas I have swimming around in my head currently ontop of the other things im going to do.
To pull the head off, have it checked, cleaned and have stiffer valve springs fitted to suit the cams even though I don't seem to be suffering valve float. Then thinner headgasket to lower the CC and ARP head studs.
Link ecu to bring the car into this century technology wise and get a full wire in to eliminate the old crusty loom. Have the flex fuel sensor installed with other sensors like fuel pressure to help protect the engine. Another reason I want to be able to plug my laptop in and diagnose/sensor check and log data when I feel the need.
Strip the engine bay right back and repaint it.
Old school 52mm black faced Greddy gauges.
