been a while since ive posted anything so ive decided i'll add an update.

- car is still going well. i have had some issues (7) with blowing turbo/manifold gaskets. i have now fixed this problem (welded turbo to manifold :lol: )
- engine is still performing well (when it wasnt blowing gaskets which it doesnt do now).
- we have reflared the rear guards to 40mm
- fitted Kei Office Coilovers (and lowered the car about 15mm)

Car now looks the goods lowered. I have also put an order in with tomei for them to make me some 260x10.25mm cams (due to the 270x9.25 being too large for my turbo hence the lag and compressor surge im suffering) these will be ready by mid feb. i'll get a retune and these installed once i get them.

Our workshop has also started to take off and with the money from it we have purchased a new track car s13.5 with an SR20DET in it :P hehe we are in the process of stripping and liteing the car (removed wiring/sound deadener and replacing most windows with acrylic, getting a chromoly cage,) should be ready by feb.

damn straight. i wasnt going to sell it so i decided to weld it on. you would too if it happened to you 7 times (i had the manifold draw filed as it was too much of an angle to machine, and the turbo machined flat and it still leaked.) so yeh welded it on with a stick welder (was done properly).

reason being the voltage needs boosting to the coil packs (im getting a hks twin power dli for it) on 15.5psi it made 278kw and a lot smoother graph thats what im running it on atm until i increase the spark.
