Awesome update! I did the exotics racing F430 in May too!! (but last year) was good fun but over way too soon.

Do you have any further details on this setup? is it a product or DIY?

Here you go, its a little bit clunky at first but I wanted something more modern and pull data straight from the ecu. It also has a media control but need an external amp to power speakers

Did you mod the manifold yourself? also is the divider in there? If you remove the divider you'll experience much more lag

Had a mate weld it up, divider is still there. The manifold was ported too back when I got the 3076 first fitted.

2019 Updates :D

Sold my Monaro over the weekend :( but got to buy a Unimig 200Amp ac/dc tig and start making the intercooler pipes. First time welding aluminium and happy with it for now. Hot side is all welded and just need a 90 degree silicon, cold side is have cut the the first 2 bends up.

Weld 3 looks nice, have you had a go at aluminium with a MIG already? Curious if you've tried both. 

I inherited a MIG recently, pending delivery.

Thanks, No haven't used a mig for aluminium.

Its handy having a welder my mig gets used a fair bit.

aluminium with the mig is a nightmare if u don't have pulse, even more so on thinner materials <8mm...

Went to put coolant in last night to start it up and then there was a big puddle on the floor so gave up.

First thing this morning removed radiator and it had a crack where I had ground abit too much off to fit it better. A quick weld and refit it all and no more leaks 😃

Put in a battery, plugged in the laptop and loaded a base file. Started testing injectors, igntion, set up e throttle & calibrated cas.
Hit the key and it spluttered to life but won't stay idling BUT it does start. Have organised to get some help sorting the tune.
Pretty happy that it at least starts and done everything myself this time around.
Will get a video once its running nicely

Got the car idling well after rechecking a few things in the PCLink software and sorting out the wideband input
First time out of the shed in 18 months

Video of idle so much smoother with the DBW setup

Got it on the dyno tonight and didn't all go to plan 
End result was 227kw on 14psi no matter what we did. Wastegate spring is too soft (7psi) & leaking at manifold flange, catalytic converter may have collapsed and fuel may be off (tried mixing half a tank with old & fresh). Got a few small water & oil leaks.
1216037400_sil801stdyno.thumb.JPG.056b1b8e47526e44f1dff5a2289f6cf5.JPG

Plan is to get a gate spring tomorrow, drop the cat out with decat pipe, reseat wastegate, fix all the leaks, drain fuel and double check base timing.
Got 2 other cars to get ready for racing & setup the race event this weekend so will try and get back on the dyno next week

 

Also bought a dedicated circuit/drift car
1905417884_180sxtrackcar.thumb.JPG.c5ac4f3c569d9b94d5cb689aa4489fc8.JPG

Sr20, gt30 T2 flange, Link g4+ plugin, coilovers. 
was a great deal so couldn't pass it up. Plan is to do all new suspension, r33 brakes, add some sensors to engine (IAT, Oil Pres & temp, Fuel Pres & temp and a flex sensor), fixed back seat and a big tidy up. Need to bin the kebab spec dual sub setup too.

Dyno went about as expected, all minor stuff so tidy up and you'll be right. 

Track car will upset a lot of people once you sort a couple bits, I'll pray for your rockers and bearings :)

Haha we have very similar tastes. I have an RB20 S15 street car and just picked up a basic SR20 drift car same as yours.

I bought a G4+ plugin for it and adding Oil pressure/temp, Coolant pressure/temp, Fuel pressure/temp, Manifold air pressure/temp and flex fuel sensor. Can throw up some pics of how i did it all if you want, was a bit of dicking around but well worth it imo.

What did you say to me?!

I don't own a drift car. Plus currently, it still has one of Nissan's finest engines in it... 

Pics are always good.
