Minimum requirement for a street car for me now. 

I won't be holding onto this much longer hopefully it's going up for sale at rockynats. The 370 does everything this can do so much better I think. 

WOOOO, so tempting 🙄

Absolutely. No AC is a young mans game for 1.5hp gainz

Yeah no point taking it out unless a you are going to have a crack at winning a state level event in a purpose built race car.

How do you go with cooling of the RB with no clutch fan? 

Fancy Thermo fan setup? 

Wouldn't mind a mild RB25 in mine one day but scared of cooling issues and weight balance. 

Will not consider SR because they are faggotry. 

Don't you hate it when people bring back quotes from years ago @ActionDan 🤣

To quote Brian O'Conner - "A lot has changed..."

Mainly by discovery of fully hektik VVL head options and watching a lot of RB Silvia's at track days and not loving what I was seeing. 

Also, get fugged :D

Slowly, he's been having some personal issues that have slowed down his builds. Last I checked he had done one of the chambers I think. 

I haven't been pushing him as I've had my hands full anyway and the engine being here will make me have to think about wtf I do with it.

Nah stopped looking, working on shed, roofing project for the house, and various other projects. 

Shed electrical supplies should be here today I think, plumbing supplies are there, trenching done, power from old shed to new completed shortly by my elec then I'll take it from there.

Got the Aircon lines in with new o-rings and drier, just need to wire the plug to compressor and gas it up. Booked a few hours of dyno hire Tuesday so be good to have it running and ready for street driving again. 

Took the 370z out to first event at new driveIT facility. Went pretty good and fastest car on street tyres. It goes pretty well but definitely need decent tyres to catch the faster guys. Overall impressed for a stock car and surprised a few people but if I was tracking it often a manual would be a lot better.

So....... Dyno didn't go as planned. Didn't make power it should have. Looks like having fuel pressure and trigger issue. Also forgot to turn off vtc so which caused a few small problems that I didn't realise until I talked with a mate. 

Going to order trigger kit and upgrade fuel reg before heading to rockynats as would be good to make decent power again.

Good to hear been wanting one for a while but never had problems with the old ecu setup. 

Was bored so fitted Ac belt and new tensioner so just need to add some gas. 

And........ Pulled plugs and compression check. Plugs good, comp meh (used 2 gauges) also thought I fixed an oil leak from cam cover but looks to be coming from between the head and block :down:

That's pretty damn good if I'm being honest.

It's down from the last one I remember from years ago. Wouldn't mind doing a leak down test too if I can borrow one.

Ordered trigger kit and will be installing new fuel pump and reg tonight. Just going to do these and see how it goes.
