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

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.

Also started doing a LS conversion in a mates vh commodore so my time is currently split between the 2 cars.

Hoping to finish pipe work & exhaust on the sil80 by Friday and going away over the long weekend so may program the ecu & start the car mid next week

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 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.

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

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.

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.

    • I’m currently with Shannon’s but I also think my car is under insured 
    • Was in the same predicament with just cars/AAMI, covered for 8k. Went to enthusiasts, now covered for 25k full comp for around the same price as the AAMI bomb insurance.
    • sorry to bump this, but did you have these original photos? I am about to put a taarks block adapter, grex thermo filter relocation in my RS4S stagea in the void infront of the front diff and a 21 row pwr oil cooler where the factory SMIC sits. thinking of utilising 2 m6 sump bolts and some 4mm bent steel plate but thought these missing photos could provide some insight into other good options. 
    • Pulled the old engine apart today because I need the oil squirters out of it for the new engine  looks like I pulled the engine out just at the right time because they were ready to knock and start damaging things 
    • Took the sil80 out to the local hill climb for a run sunday. Car decided it didn't want to make boost so just ran it like that and still managed a 1.04:52 and 6th outright. Had a chat with some people about about the issue and seems the wastegate is getting stuck open so pulled it apart and found a few areas were marked on the valve shaft so cleaned it and linished the the shaft put it back on and everything seems fine now. Booked King of QR in September and will start getting it ready for e85 and retune in the next few weeks.
