Da Bitch Is Back


Recommended Posts

No not terrance, my car is back on the road as of Saturday. ;)

Stage 1 tune on sat at racepace we got a best of [email protected] at 1 Bar and then ran the a/f ratios a flat 12 and got [email protected] We didnt play with the adj cam or anything as yet coz I aint running any BOV's at the moment so I now have the DUT DUT DUT VL noise when I get off the throttle, but its sending the afm crazy with all that air going backwards and hitting the turbo blades and causes the car to stall if I get off the throttle hard and am not in gear. Go a set of R33 GTR BOV's going on hopefully this week so we can play with it a bit more and see what I get.

I couldnt run anymore boost coz I was only running off the 1 bar spring in the external gate and nige did not want to run my profec b with the external gate coz it dont control boost that well apparently with an external gated turbo.

Car is surprisingly easy to drive off boost and still has alot of low down torque below 4000rpm, but just on 4000rpm it will hit 1 bar boost and pull all the way rather quick to 7500rpm redline.

I took a few pics last night in my garage after the skid pad training day where I gave it a good run in, but the engine bay is filthy and theres wires and shit which I havent had time to reroute and clean up as yet.

looks sweet!

Its actually quite filthy in there, its been sitting at the workshop with the bonnet open for around 3 months so it preety dirty. I am getting it steam cleaned after my bov's catch can and all the messy wiring u can see is all tired up this week.

There might even be a bit of blue rich incorporated in there ;)

^^^ Seeing that. *cough*shitbox*cough*

How the FARK is my turbo going to fit low mounted ;)

Oh well, it aint my problem ;)

Looks great denham.

250rwkw @ ~15psi. Looking VERY nice indeed.

Mine gets here today/tomorrow.

Cant wait to have a run with ya.

Keep us posted on how it goes with the tuning etc.

And what are you gonna use to control the wastegate etc?

All i will say ash is GOOD LUCK getting it to fit low mount without it either rubbing the engine or the engine bay. I had to use brackets to move the power steering bottle forward and a whole bunch of wiring on the passengers side had to be moved otherwise it will melt if it gets near the exhaust housing.

I gotta get an exhaust blanket for the exhaust housing also coz it blows back a bit of heat into the cabbin at the moment.

yer i was donw at ice when gerald n nige were explaining to me all the crap they had to go through just to fit that thing in there, but as you'd expect from ice it turned out sweet, hurry up n get that rebuild denham, unlock the full potential ;)

Forgies etc will be very nice and then i can pump 2 bar and make around [email protected] but i have other bill to pay at the moment.

Hoping to have the next tune on wednesday for sat so we can play with a few other things.

After not driving the car for 3 months and now driving it i had a smile on my face all the way home after driving it from niges house to mine.

sick as, but are you going to wait a while n learn how to handle the 250 rears first ? coz 350 rears is definintely more than a weapon on the street, like i cant see you even bothering dragging any cars... unless ur on 20% throttle n give them a bit of hope ;)

I will be waiting awhile coz its lots of fun at the moment, but i might crack it upto around 18-20psi for 300rwkw for a few calder runs with some nittos and some better fuel. I think my z32 afm is a bit shagged also, so gotta test out another one coz the stalling problem shits me up the wall!!

BTW nathan theres a few secrets that Ben and Nige wont tell you coz they only tell high mount manifold turbo owners. wink wink ;)

Yeah I was lucky enough to get to see this in action yesterday and it certainly looked and sounded very very nice.

And it was good to meet you finally too yesterday INASNT!  ;)

Good to meet you to man, and sorry i didnt hang around outside the gate after, but the misses was busting to go to the toilet so i had to hook off.

I was hoping all through the skidpad yesterday that nothing would break coz the turbo only had about 150 km run in before the tune and light thrashing i gave it on the skidpad.

I know we gonna need it.

But wires etc, i'm lucky. All mine (being R31) are not there etc. And the bay has a slightly different design.

But mine sit's VERY low. So i wont need to move the P/S stuff luckily. Just need to make a add-on to my haet shield that i've already got.

Gonna be good fun. How does it feel?

Nice and responsive?

    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
    • I've had a few turbo cars over the years, all made mandatory choo choo noises, but never a supercharged car, now I do Frankly, the power delivery of this kills every turbo car I have ever owned, it makes about the same Hp as my old 25/30 in the boat, but, pisses all over it from idle Power wise it delivers better than anything I have ever owned I actually prefer the V8 throaty roar and blower whine over the choo choo noises from any of my turbo cars As for the public, all I get is thumbs up and comments about how good it sounds If we ever meet up feel free to have a drive and give it a little boot, that way you can make up your own mind, I'm as biased as 10 biased things
