Project 'Wheezy' Coupe

Slow progress and a while between updates as I decided late last year to build a new house and move away from the city now that my wife and I no longer have a permanent working location.

Anyways, I fitted Bosch pressure/temp sensors for oil/fuel/water and a flex sensor too. Which means when I pull the finger out for the full beans tune I will get a flex tune rather than straight E85.

 

Finally got around to fitting my fixed back seat on the weekend just gone. (Need to re-fit the harness at some point)
Hopefully get out for a drive in the coming weekends once other commitments settle down and see if it was a good or bad decision.

Small sneaky update.
I was never happy with the Otaku Garage adapter plate for the RB26 intake. I had issues with it leaking, being generally very soft material and I ended up re coiling the threads.

 

A mate of a mate got onto Racefab in NZ who used to make what is essentially inspired/copies of the Blitz adapter plate from years ago.

Turns out he had two left on the shelf that were never sold.
So I managed after about a month of back and forth getting my hands on one.

I started stripping the intake off today and it should be on this weekend.
I hope this is the last time the intake needs to come off for a very long time!

Got the car back together and will hopefully get a much needed alignment this weekend.
That is providing lock down in Melbourne lifts :(

Was looking at options for Wifi to the Emtron on Friday night and ended up buying a small wifi router for $34 delivered on Amazon.

 

Pretty cool little gadget and has already come in handy to look at the ECU logs etc without having to grab a wire and stuff around in the cabin.

Made a sneaky patch loom for the Fuel Level Sender Conditioner today. It adapts into the loom which powers the dash so that I can give both the dash and the conditioner 12v.

The rest of the loom runs to the conditioner itself and a DTM-3P connector for power, earth and the signal from the fuel level sender itself (I will intercept the wire on the dash for the factory gauge).


The little wire dangling (I should have given it more length, but long story) will go to the input on the ECU.

So much bogan power!!!

In other news, still getting KMs on the car before all the boosts.
And am going to put a pressure/temp sensor on the hot side of the intercooler to measure pressure drop and temps pre intercooler.

Lastly, have a surprise coming around Jan for this which will change the look of the car quite significantly IMO :)

Added a PWR 80mm intercooler & R31 House intercooler insert for the front bumper.

 

Also new wheels arrived just before Xmas. I'm pretty happy with the result.

    • Looks like they put some more details on their Youtube channel. It's interesting how they actually bothered to completely rethink the airbox/intake piping end to end, usually those are left as an exercise for the reader to complete. Anyone know what that AVL capture is showing? I have strong doubts it's actually from an RB engine, would not be surprised to know if it's a single cylinder research engine.
    • RB20DET O2 sensor for an HCR32 GTST Type M would be 2269073L11. For some reason it's extremely expensive and not shared with many other cars but that's what it is. I can't find an aftermarket equivalent either. Terra Firma in the US claims that an NTK replacement will work but they don't say what it is: https://tfaspeed.com/products/replacement-oxygen-sensor-for-nissan-skyline-r32-gtst-gts4-gts25-rb20-25det Checking Kudos Motorsports it's likely NTK OZA726-EE2 which is used in the Pulsar and B13 NX.
    • You can check for codes in the meantime with a jumper wire.
    • Ok thanks. I don’t have a tonne of laptops to choose from so wish me luck. Will take a lifetime to get here from China anyway. I can live with the dash lights until then as long as the car drives alright. Will find out soon enough I suppose.  👍👍
