I want to set my thermal fan/air-con fan to activate a bit earlier than what has been set on my PFC i belive so i will need the data logic right?

By the way my car is an R32GTR,

I've seen water temp on my hand controller read up to 100+( back when i had issue with my radiator was a bit block ) and the bloody fan wouldn't kicks in unless i have the aircon on which explain in a way BUT in my 33gtst wherther i had aircon on or not, the fan still come in.

Another word the 33 air condensor fan WORKS as a back up sourse as well but not in the R32?

This is an issue where i havn't found an answer by anybody wherther it was ICE or Racepace, anyone can clarify this would be GREAT.

everyone that says the powerfc boost controller kit is crap doesn't actually have any proof and just blames that cos they dont know what the problem is. its the same as the avcr solenoid. i dont see why there would be any issues with it? its a valve, it watches some events and open/closes accordingly. there are plently of guys using powerfc boost kit. perhaps you could pm one of them and ask

Hi, I intend on buying a PFC for my 33. One thing I would love to know. What is your mileage per tank after you tuned the PFC? Also with what mods and at what boost pressure do you run.

i found some top end flat spots and it was traced back to my exhaust shop not fitting a split front/dump pipe and leaving the stocker one on. i thought did the split front/dump but turned out they didnt so that kinda killed the top end power. since getting that fitted it ran awesome and didnt loose top end, ak run out of puff

Yeah i already have a split dump and full 3" with high flow....

I need to change the setting cause im using way too much fuel atm....

Try 24litres per 100km's.... I have a nice burn mark on my rear bar and i had a small exhaust fire the other day so its very important....

    • Hi, This thread will possibly get deleted, but genuinely wanted seasoned veteran feedback on an R34 GTR price. Saw the below listed recently on CS for a mouth watering sum. With the amount of work done to it, is this considered a fair price? Or is it still heavily influenced by what's going on in Japan and the upcoming US market, on top of the modifications? At these rates, this is a nice goodbye to the average Joe's dreams. Even if it were listed at half the price, that is still a lot of hard earned cash. Every month, the dream goes further towards the moon. Have to become a successful business owner to even come close 😁   PS. If the owner is here, no offense! You do what you gotta do!

    • If the timing check shows timing bouncing all over the place despite commanding a fixed value in the ECU then the most likely explanation is either the CAS drive pin on the cam has worn, the CAS drive gear has worn, or both. I suspect a number of the more severe cases of timing scatter are actually due to this issue.
