Project 'Wheezy' Coupe

Recommended Posts

Making a custom layout for my digital dash.

Seems to fit the theme of MAGA but more arrogance.

Might see if I can make the background change on redline for a combination of the two.

Powertune digital dash.

Basically a raspberry pi

AH. I remember when that was launched. I threw the image of mine up and the kid knew exactly who I was when I did it.

I'm doing another currently from scratch this time. 5" wide screen.

Not much to update.


Dash insert turned up today and I test fitted the screen. Had to slightly enlarge the mount holes due to differences in the Powertune vs. the insert. (As they are both 3D printed).

Waiting on the pilot lights (Turning up Tomorrow/Friday).


Waiting for stage 4 restrictions to ease up before I get a wheel alignment and put some km's on it.

Haven't done much lately with the car.

Test fitted the dash on the weekend.
Just need to order some more wiring and DTM plugs.

Then drill the holes for the led pilot lights.
(Indicators, handbrake, high beam and alarm).

Might do fuel level through the Emtron as it has an input.

That's nice, how's the quality of the dash facia? 

Pretty happy with it considering the price and lack of support for R31 things in general.
You can tell it's 3D printed, from the back. But otherwise it has a nice paint/finish added to the front size.

I hear crickets....why don't I hear hits of big rpm and Trust goodness!!!!

Changed position at work and am working EU hours. Daytime is daddy daycare and sleep :P

Hopefully next month more time for fun as I will split my shift between EU and AU time.

Still need to finish wiring the dash and putting some Bosch (oil/fuel) sensors to the Emtron before I drive it again.
Ordered the bits this week, so hopefully get stuck into the wiring with my brother in law once restrictions are lifted.

Very little updates here.
With the new job hours and some other life plans I've had even less time for this.

Still have the dash apart and cannot drive it. Chequered Tuning is booked out for the rest of 2020, so I'm in no rush to get km's on it to get back on the dyno.

So I used this as an excuse for more goodies for the interior & change the standard Trust dump pipe to a Vband as it's a pain to remove and put back on.
Hopefully take it on some drives over the xmas break :)

    • Hey I have a spare CAS unit if you wanted to borrow or buy
    • All issues mentioned are mitigated by running billet gears and a long nose crank. My question pertains more to the oil pump housing differences. I already have an RB25 pump housing I wanted to put billet pump gears in. I was wondering if there's any advantage if I purchase an N1 pump instead and put billet gears into that. Even stranger is I found a link (One in OP) that states the RB25 pump housing is actually preferable which I'm wondering why.   Thanks
    • In the middle of the rb25 upgrade on the rb20. Its actually a Arashi bolt on. Its in and lined up perfect First question is can I use a standard hose as my oil return line? New turbo fitting is shorter and having to  change the line/hose The oil supply/intake hose has a smaller hole than stock. Not sure I should go back with the old one   Any other tips would be appreciated   
    • So just to update: I changed the brushes over and polished the commutator using a 1500 grit sanding sponge; it was super easy to polish being copper. A power tool wasn't necessary, although could have made it easier if you have the finesse to use it well.     Yet this was to no avail, the motor worked as it did before, stop, start, stop start, etc. Today I went to my mechanic's shop to do a few things. I showed him the motor and asked in broken Japanese "who can fix this?", he took it from me and had a crack, was able to fix it-ish. From what I could understand (which is very little), the problem with the motor was with the clutch disc located amongst the gears, I saw it whilst he was working but couldn't identify any issues. I say he fixed it-ish, because now the motor will run continuously when free from the rack, which is great. But once I had reinstalled it, the tilt function would work but the sliding function sounded off, like the motor was under more load than before and the motor was struggling. We're going to pull apart the rack in the new year and see what we can find.  Hopefully this is of some help to others that get sunroof motor issues with their R34, S15 Silvia, or highly unlikely the Z10 cube. I will update this when more progress is made.
    • AFAIK in the RB26 section of the service manual it explicitly says not to take apart the AAC valve. If you took it apart once there's no harm in taking it apart again to see if you can save it.
