You really don't get much out of a pfc without a bigger turbo and a fmic. Then you'll need bigger injectors and a better pump. Then expect 200-230rwkw [depending on turbo type].

So keep spending..................

you did WHAT??? :(

unless i'm misinterpreting the situation, she is now smacking you on the dongle with a piece of fencing wire. when she has finished, set fire to yourself as a reminder to never share secret men's business with her again. lol

could be worse, mine gets just as excited about car parts as I do and then no one protects the Visa card.

trident is right - you will get some gain from a pfc tune but no where near as much as you will if you tune it with the other bits like bigger bb turbo, fmic etc present.

To say that tuning a Power FC without a bigger turbo or injectors wont do anything, isnt quite true... Yes if you have an aftermarket turbo, bigger injectors and a bigger fuel pump you will get more out of your tune but if you put in and tune a Power FC with only a bigger exhaust, front mount intercooler and maybe a boost tee (bleed valve) you can make some quite reasonable power gains, I have seen RB25's make up to 200kw at the wheels (mine did) and RB20's make upwards of 180kw at the wheels... RB motors have so much untapped potential.

    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi     
    • Could you please express this thought again with some clarity added?
    • So, whilst the Bogan Cruise Ship is GTG, and I had organised some time today to go on the SAU NSW cruise, my best laid plans where kicked in the balls, well, kicked in my right knee to be exact Now, after a bit of arthroscopic "honing" and tibial band lengthening "modifications" , I'm sitting on a couch in a prescription induced drug haze, watching 5hit on the Youtubes and falling in and out of consciousness......good times
