Bakemono Nissan S15 - Build Thread!


Recommended Posts

This head needs to know there is fuel nearby  whooshing through the fuel rail on its way back to the  tank, so it can be comforted by knowing money has been spent. ??

1 x DW340 supports 312 rwkw on e85 for me through stock hard lines, stock rail, stock fpr. 

 

Anyway, Samsonas. Do it bro.

Yes to Samsonas, and also mechanical fuel pump.

Running electric fuel pumps isn't Don Mega in 2020 anymore.

The game has changed, 2020 is about 1000+ up, Samsomas sequentials, mechanical fuel pumps and MoTec M1

Have been working two jobs to try & get this puppy on the road.

It's looking like I'll get it towed to TRP towards the end of this month.

As the focus is a nice streeter / track day machine I do think once tuned it'll be boost limited to conserve gearbox/bottom end.

Build has entered raging bull mode. TRP have taken charge of the build now and started on the don mega fuel system, within a week it's just all out NASA spec really and not even necessary yet however I'd already forked out the coin (years ago) for plenty of Earls Ultrapro teflon, custom surge tank, custom fuel hat, etc so I went for it. Next up will be to finish the catch can filter, tidy up all the lines, fit oil pressure / 2 x map sensors, then its off to Insight for wiring & flex tune.

If it is "Don Mega" or "NASA" then you shouldn't be using a welded up surge tank :)

don't be so sure:

Dose, AI didn't make the cut, their surge tanks are too small, look at the volume those pumps take up, damn near the whole canister. I had no choice but to go big spec with aircraft grade alloy and 10L volume. 

Gonna be needed to keep the fuel cool when I'm full tilt at wakefield coming in hot through the kink, should help with a bit of weight over the rears to keep me planted.

Micko, no Elixir in main tank, I would of needed a billet cradle for that puppy so for once I didn't spend the dollars. Leaving the Nismo lift pump in there.

    • Thank you for sharing your experiences. I believe your post means nothing to anyone or any of the businesses you mentioned. It’s probably better we all thank these businesses for providing us with products and solutions that you see nowhere else in the world. They work hard to provide us with those solutions, don’t shit on it. A business like xanavi probably has the right to charge 1100 USD for an SD card upgrade for CarPlay on the GTR, better than going to Nissan to be charged 4000+ to just get done local maps update right? Considering the car is 200-700k, I think it’s all due.  How did you save someone 1000 dollars by linking the SD card upgrade and then linking an irrelevant product that they got the idea from? You’re misleading people. You’re then making someone think that the box does the job? You idiot.   About the lesser knowns, what makes you so sure that those businesses people aren’t appealing to customers in their location/market? (AUmark) You seem to not only have a problem with miscommunication but also not being able to read. I just jumped on nifty city’s website and it’s in your local currency, where did you get 1100 USD from? It says 699 USD, or 1000 AU (your currency). They also run discounts? Your peripherals need improvement.   Grom v line has been on the game for longer than you’ve had interest in the so called “Japanese market” that you know so much of.    This post is not really helpful to anyone in the market looking to buy a unit. Let people run their business and customers to decide for themselves.   Regards, An interested customer.   
    • Small addition to my post above. This morning I noticed my door ajar light was turning on occasionally when it shouldn't. I had a stray 8vdc being fed back from ground side with key out. After taking a closer look at the original cluster, I noticed nissan was actually aware of this as they added a diode. I tossed in a 1N4007 and it's resolved. 
    • New coolant overflow for the r32.the good old boys in blue that let me rip around with a 4” exhaust no issues at all. We got it good over here like that. 
    • Hey Ben those are some extremely wicked numbers for 22psi and the kill tune on e85 at 800 probably feels great. What are running for a gearbox? nice work mate glad to see the blue is working proper. Send me your base timing map when you get a chance I want to see how cranked up you got it over 16 psi, cheers
    • The little 10mm bolts are holding for dear life. 30 psi on ethanol/meth injection and things are feeling fricken spicy now! I hope the boost gods are with me at this power level feels like my face is going to the back of my head now.
