Ready for more power i recon
I agree......especially now I've entered Ten Of The Best!
So yes, I've entered Ten Of The Best! Never done it before so I'll give it a bash. Hopefully get the car mapped beforehand for a little extra juice!
So the car is back on the axle stands tonight, fear not folks it's not broken lol! New sump has been fitted as my old one was absolutely battered and 20 years old as it was the original sump from the B16B, it was dented and leaking so a new one was purchased, baffle plates and turbo drain welded in before a coat of primer then satin black. I've also tried some gold reflective tape where the downpipe sits, see if it reflects any heat.
Other jobs included oil and filter (obviously), topped the box oil up, swapped the wheels and hardwired the fuel pump because Friday is MAPPING TIME!! New injectors are going In, screamer plumbed back on then shoot for 500! Will it explode......stay tuned!
The car is at Race-Tech as we speak, dropped it off this morning and the screamer was done by the afternoon, plumbed back in on a slip joint due to lack of space for a flexi. Hopefully injectors going in and mapping early next week.
Also bought myself a new lid.
race spec are still about, don't hear much about them anymore.
Yeah it's still going, very busy too! Think they had some bad press years ago but I can't fault what they've done for me, it's been brilliant!
Small update, car should be mapped tomorrow so fingers crossed!
In the mean time I've purchased some new suspension, BC ZR series with 3 way adjustable damping, can't wait to get these on!
Really nice suspension!
May I ask what are the spring rates front and back, custom or standart(12kg and 6kg I think)?
Thanks! I've requested 14/10, just waiting to hear back to see if that's ok. Was going to run stiffer but with the compression being so adjustable I think I can run softer.
Sounds good. I would love to hear your thoughts about this setup after you test it on track.
Btw good luck with the mapping!
Yeah I'll keep you updated about them.
Thanks, been delayed slightly as the new injectors still haven't turned up, should be here this afternoon.
So the injectors turned up Friday morning, got fitted and then the car hit the dyno! I'm pleased to say it made 512bhp and 395lbft......and my god it's faaasstt!!
It was then onto Donington Park the next day for Japfest. I was on the Apex Performance stand with @MadM1ke87, we also had 3 lots of tracktime booked! I was nervous about hitting the track with a brand new setup but the car ran brilliantly! It did get a little hot in the afternoon but ambient temp was around 26c so it was tough on the car!
The new diff/gearbox and R888R tyres worked really well, very happy with how the car handled.
Here's a small YouTube vid of the only session me and mike got together due to traffic....
The car is in next month's Japanese Performance Magazine along with @MadM1ke87!! Comes out July 13th.
Cracking power Looks amazing too.
Thanks mate, so happy with how the car drives with the new setup!
Loved reading through this thread mate, awesome build! Congrats on the feature too.
Thanks! Glad you've enjoyed the build so far, hopefully you'll continue to like it lol!
