MLR's Bogan cruise ship

they do in 4th. When tuning with HPtuners need to "activate" lock up but can have trouble staying in lock up mode on a chassis dyno.
Good result from a"standard" ls1. So when is blower being ordered?

The shift kit will have it hit the limiter in 3rd, is that the same as locked up?

Paul said he just ran it up in 3rd (1:1?) and checked fueling, which was slightly rich, he said he could spend some time advancing the timing a bit to get a little more, but that it's not really cost effective to retune it for a small gain.

 

I think it will stay like this.

It's a comfy cruiser.

I will wait for the apocalypse to finish then look at something "more sporty" then.

Or, buy a 5.0 Mustang and blow it, maybe????

I'm f**king hopeless.

New shoes are on, 275 on the rear are #verysortofflush

Also stopped at Strathfield car audio to see about replacing the stereo.

f**k it, that pioneer thing will do, the guy is installing it as I type.

To all audiophiles, as long as I can play the Cramps, the Misfits, some Leonard Cohen and can find ABC classic radio I'm fine.

The headunit is mainly for Google maps and the phone.

This ISO business sure has affected you!

LOL, it actually has quite a bit, BUT, if I follow my drills and use PPE I'll be fine.

The car boot is full of hand sanitiser, black latex gloves, P2 masks and a good folding chair for when I need to wait somewhere, you need to be comfortable when sitting in the sun watching "Fringe" for hours on end during the apocalypse.

Those new Hankook tyres are damn good as well.

In other news: I'm thinking of swapping the middle 2 mufflers for some "cherry bombs".

I think the car needs more "loud and obnoxious".

Horray

New blinker stalk = fixed cruise control 

You cannot have a cruise ship without auto-pilot

And....as the #Bogancruiseship has a tow ball, I can now find a real project

Maybe a motorbike for something different, and cheap (ish)

May I suggest a speedboat?

Jetski is the obvious choice

Yeah nah, I've had a go on a few jetskis but cannot really see their point.

It's either going to be a car or bike 

I do keep looking at MX5's, ?, a NA or NB maybe?

Depends on how much work you want to do. The NB is basically a better NA. The NB Turbos are a hidden gem but getting pricey now. 
The NC's are the fastest base, but you'd need a fair amount of work, or FI or a 2.5L swap to really put them ahead of a NB with a turbo (or factory turbo).

For max simplicity though, 86 is (again) the answer. If you want something different buy my Renault considering you can tow it ?. Unfortunately I cannot say buy my gf's turbo MX5 as i will be swiftly murdered.

LS Swap MX5

Na...it would be fun, but end up real costly.

This

I'm thinking a bobber type build, I'm to old and arthritic for a sports bike.

Maybe a Triumph Speedmaster bobbered and murdered out.

Fark, who am I kidding, It could end up being anything.....

    • looking good mate keep up the good work i like following this thread.  
    • 20220120_204714.mp4     Hey guys, passenger door jammed shut on me, I managed to get the door card off in one piece and have a look in there but can't seem to find the problem. Ive tried using combos of using the key and holding the interior lock open, using both door handles and the central lock button. Ive tried pushing and pulling the door latch and lock rods manually The lock mechanism seems to turn and push the lever when I turn the key and everything looks to be in place. Cant for the life of me find the problem. Any help would be appreciated. If there is a manual way to open the door I haven't found it. Im guessing something inside the latch mechanism has gone bad but how can you get it out with the door jammed shut? 
    • There are literally dozens of aftermarket throttlebodies in DCOE carby format. The RB26 ITBs are so very very close to the DCOE bolt pattern that it is difficult to believe that Nissan came that close and didn't actually just use the DCOE pattern. Then, you can look at just about any EFI motorbike from Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, etc that used single throttles, in whatever size floats your boat. 45mm? 48mm? Larger? They're all out there. Just build manifold and plenum and linkages to suit. As for compression and cams - the larger the cam duration, the more compression you can run. Just sayin'. And as for cost for bottom end.....8500 rpm is well within the limits of the stock bottom end. Especially NA. It won't cost much to make it good for >9000. Just need some light pistons and some moderately strong rods and bolts. On the subject of VCT.....all RB25s have it (except for the very first ones in the R32). The vanilla 25s in the R33 era cars were all VCT. There's almost no difference in the VCT between vanilla and Neo engines. The difference between Neos and vanilla 25s is that the Neos have solid lifters, a different included angle in the valves with a shallow combustion chamber. And in the NAs.....not particularly good flowing ports. I would not write off the power potential of an L series vs an RB25DE though, neo or not. 2.8L & 3L (and larger) L series builds, even running Mikunis, have made really large power. There is nothing wrong with the single cam engines. The twin cams are not inherently a massive leap in power potential.
