MLR's 86 not a build thread thread

Ok.......LOL.......Apparently a turbo is a excellent way to muffle down some cold start noise.

Can we start a sweeps for how long before current exhaust is replaced with full 3" decat, straight piped one to get more out of the turbo setup?

I'm pretty sure the 2.5" decated system will be fine for 190ish kwatw.

Even with the aded weight of the turbo I'll still be under 1300kg, which isn't bad for a daily with all the modern conveniences.

In other news, I WANT MY BOOST NOW, I'm so f**king impatient, waiting a month for it to happen is going to suck.

Good choice. I've got RE003s on my daily's. Probably the best tire (for the money) that I've ever driven on.

I do prefer RS4's (talk about value for money), BUT, whilst RS4's are brilliant in the dry, they are pretty average in the wet.

Compromises were made because street car.

There was a special on at JAX, 4 tyres and a wheel alignment for $550, bargain.

I am sorry but I still cannot believe that an 86 can turn a 235 tyre........

QFT

LOL

Seriously though, the little girl has surprised a few people.

It ain't no rocketship, but, tuned NA it puts out more than a stock turbo S15, it's currently 145kwatw, add some PSI and it will be around 190-200.

Plus at 1250kg, the power to weight ain't really horrible either.

Opinions may vary

For what its worth, I recently took a little orange Renault Megane 225 to Winton with a tune and similar rubber. I wish I had more tyre and it has the same modest power to weight. Plenty to have fun with. 80+ hot laps in a day also is a breath of fresh air relative to most outings with a broken Nissan. 😛


I say continue having fun.

Street alignment all dialed in

Front: -1.5°, 0 toe

Rear: -1.0°, 0 toe

Will be going for a squirt up the pass for a pie on Saturday, I'll then take the long way home via Jamberoo, also with a detour past the lighthouse in the Gong, and by lighthouse I mean the icecream van in the carpark near the lighthouse.

In all honesty though, the set up is more about tyre life and daily driving with illusions of performance, more so than actual performance.

19 days to go till tututututu, which, is the main reason why I'm getting a turbo anyway.......
