Stagea Questions

Hey Folks,

Over the past few days the Stag hasn't been its usual self...

The main 'obvious' thing is when the turbo is hitting full boost (spikes to 12 then sits flat at 10psi) but you havnt got your foot flat, just enough for it to hit full boost, the turbo is cutting in and out... Sought of a bumping basically. When the foot is flat to the floor it will just hit 10 psi and sit flat, doesnt cut in and out...

Now, what the hell is it? Kinda annoying me...Anything serious? Or just a minor issue? Has only been doing it since we installed the bleed valve.

Cheers Guys,

Chris

PS - Would this be solved if I were to install the Jaycar Gear? :P

Got the same idiosyncrasy (sic) on mine after I installed a Powerup MBC. It spikes to 11psi when you stab the fun flipper then it settles back to 10.

An R33 mate reckons it is b/c of the length of tube running to the MBC is too long and turbo is overboosting ( as per my setting ) before the MBC registers and actuates the wastegate.

Dont know if this is true or not, but it doesnt seem to worry it at all and I havent popped any hoses yet.

But it is all the more reason for me to get that Jaycar IEBC sooner then later.

OK Guys! More Help needed.

Right, my old man was driving my car, about 3000rpm just starting to spool hard and "Psssssttttt" kinda like a blow off valve. Didnt sound right though, so we pulled over to see whats the problem. popped the hood and gave it a rev. Turbo isnt spooling anymore! Not at all! I think I may have blown a hose somewhere given the noise. Please please help me. Cannot drive it in its current state

Cheers,

Chris

My first guess would be an intercooler hose has blown off, check them all.

:D cheers :D

    • After a crazy May with GTR Fest, it's time to get back into our routine and meet up for another SAUNSW Sunday Session. And what better way to kick things back off with a new location - Self Raised Snack Shoppe, North Bexley! They have some great coffees, and some even better toasted sandwiches - Perfect for a Sunday breakfast! As always, this is the best place to meet up with the SAUNSW fam for a coffee, bite to eat, and a chat! So what are you waiting for? Block out the calendar, set your alarm in the morning, and come down to hang out with the SAUNSW fam! Date: Sunday 9th June Meet Location: Self Raised Snack Shoppe - Shop 4, 8/20 Sarsfield Cct, Bexley North NSW 2207 (carpark entry via Slade Road) Meet Time: Meet at 8:00am Map: https://tinyurl.com/sausundaysession-selfraised This is NOT a race and we will all be adhering to all road rules. If this is what you want please come to one of our many track days. This is an official SAUNSW event and will be run under a Motorsports Australia permit. One of the things that really sets our club apart is our commitment to being true enthusiasts. When on normal roads we strive to maintain good relations with the authorities as well as the public in general. When attending one of Skylines Australia NSW events please try to: • Be aware of surrounding environment and act accordingly. • Drive courteously on the state’s roads as a true enthusiast should. • Understand how important it is to maintain the good name of SAU:NSW and thus, treat others accordingly. • Any misbehaviour will not be tolerated and you will be asked to leave. Thanks guys and hope to see you there!
    • Me too! They are such a good looking car. Timeless design.
    • Actually, pics of the a pillar brace and how it goes with the dash would be good, and also did you have to go custom door cards to miss the 2nd side intrusion bar?  The rest of it can work as long as I cut the top 100mm off my helmet
