Update: 18/02/2018 - Back on the Road!

Update: 18/02/2018

Long overdue update! Alot has happened since last update back in 2018! Adult-ing and life has gotten in the way alot, especially with college. I do like a challenge!

Since the last update, the following has happened: 

*New drivers side wiper arm - original one had been bent and was missing part of the window, no matter how i bent it back into shape, it still missed the portion of the window

*Mobil1 10w60 Extended Life Engine Oil w/Greddy Oil Filter OX-03

*Titan Steel Wheel Nuts in black - sick of steel nuts going rusty!

*Fitted CL RC5+ rear pads & DBA T3 4000 series rear discs to match front setup(epic combo, apart from squeal)

*Due to lack of use, battery died on me so picked up a new Platinum Prestige 45Ah 350A battery. Since fitted a CTEK battery indicator and easy terminal disconnect knob thingy bob

Then in early November, we dropped the car up to Bradley Motorsports up north. Thank you to Gus for lift back and up. The plan was to fit the following: 

Autoextreme 400BHP hybrid turbo and fitting kit
Tomei Expreme Outlet Pipe
Sytec Fuel Filter
Nismo 740cc Side-Feed Injectors w/all new nissan seals
90 Degree Reducer Silicone Hose(Black)
Venom 200cel Sports Cat
Mobil1 10w60 Extended Life Engine Oil w/Greddy Oil Filter OX-03
Wiring Specialities Coilpack Pro-Series Loom
Wiring Specialities Injector Pro-Series Loom
Nismo FPR
Switchable boost switch connected to Link G4+ ecu
Alternator & stock mani were replaced along with all boost leaks sorted(split IC couplers on high boost only)

Unfortunately, the turbo shat itself on the dyno due to a manufacturing fault. It was sent back, resolved then sent back to Richard. All fitted and back on the dyno and the bearings in the turbo shat itself so back off again. 

At which point, i went back and got a good price on the AutoExtreme 450BHP hybrid - send stocker off and they rebuild it with Garrett internals etc. That finally arrived at Richards and was fitted, mapped and all other parts above fitted.

Long story short, clutch is not happy with new found power and slipping high up so that and a nismo diff is next on the list. With that sorted, it will see more power

Performance Details - AutoExtreme Hybrid 450bhp on BradleyMotorworks Dyno
332.2BHP at the Wheels @ 6319RPM
361BHP at the Fly @ 6319RPM
322.4lbft of Torque @ 4696RPM
Peak of 1.4Bar of Boost @ 6319RPM

The car is a different animal to drive now, doesn't drink as much fuel and is violent on high boost. Deffo deeper tone from exhaust too. 

Next up are a few minor jobs for NCT on the 28th Feb. Looking forward to giving it some welly on track soon also. Hats off to Richard, he did a great job. 

Stay tuned.....
