Funny How Things Happen In 3's.


Recommended Posts

I took my car to get tuned at CRD this week after my car started spluttering on high boost after i had my plugs changed-Which was a bad move from the start! :) So the boys work out its running a better with some new plugs they fitted... Good

Put it on the dyno and my car is pinging on anything above 15psi....... bummer checked a few things coils etc all ok.. Turns out my damn Catayltic Converter is blocked-(Dammit) time for a new one..

Ok back on the dyno it goes with the new Cat, and its still not running right above 15psi. Turns out to be the damn CAS, Crank Anlgle Sensor :(

I thought it was funny how things happen all at once sometimes.. Hopefully when it goes back on the dyno on Monday with the new CAS she runs right......fingers crossed

All good fun..........except for the bill...

I also get a lot of those kangaroo's down in Melbourne, in the suburbs.. :whistling:

But in all seriousness, not to far from me is a reserve, back way road.. And there is always dead kangaroo's and stuff on the side of the road.

Those things get freaking big.. can cause some serious shit! >_<

Thanks,

Abu

    • 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
