  1. You're preaching to the choir here bro lol. Taylor Automotive said my block and heads are totally boned and the only thing salvageable out of them is the crank and upper valve train (cam shafts and retainers etc). I'd say you're doing well, as I'm 30k deep into an RA that doesn't even have a running fking motor anymore.
  2. But, what if you have one of those stickers on the back of your race car.... Then the irony when the pack catches up and passes you
  3. it can do lol
  4. I just don't have a car to go get a photo unless I'm allowed to take my '96 nissan pulsar
  5. To be honest, those wheels look significantly better in person than they do in photos. It was a mistake to have so much material taken off them if I'm honest but it happens to the best of us.
  6. When you're talking something that's still a street car, I'd say it makes a large difference. I assume this is still a street car. If you were to change headers it may well be worth it. The drop in header length gives a huuuuge difference in spool time. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  7. I'd be curious to know how to achieve that on a gc8. There's not much space in the front. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  8. Well, Garlett sounds a bit dodgy to me In all seriousness though, Holset is a great turbo, but a GTX3071R should be more than capable, unless you're looking for 350kw+ range? Holsets are cheap however. You're best off having a talk to Steve Murch Motorsport engineering about it as he sells his own range of Holset based performance turbos with some changes etc.
  9. Every company has its different formulas and ingredients. Especially when it comes to synthetics. So changing may be adverse to the motors longevity. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  10. Personally I've had great experiences with Castrol Edge as well as Penrite Ten Tenths Fully synthetic 10w40. Down to personal choice really. All the options that've been provided are pretty good.
  11. In the grand scheme of things, 6 speed conversion is well worth it if the car is going to be used as a targa car. Even more so for general road use. Also, if it's going to be for track / targa use, go get your cage and safety stuff first, get it homologated. As for the gearbox talk, yes the 6 speed as significantly stronger than 5 speeds. Doesn't mean they're unbreakable though. Especially when accompanied with track work / racing. It's an easy swap imho, but depends on what you want to do and how far you want to go when swapping that in. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  12. While PBMS is good, another great tuner which has great prices and results is GDS Automotive, give Glenn Suckling a call and have a chat. Nice dude.
  13. Yes most definitely. that is one of the downsides indeed.
  14. In all seriousness, send the turbo to Steve Murch and he can rebuild the turbo and put a new compressor wheel on it and make it like new. Believe that costs around 550-700. Think that include a new billet compressor wheel as well, which should improve performance somewhat over the original factory item.
  15. ^ this Buying a brand new 207 Short block from wingers or subaru directly is about 2.7-2.8k but it's perfect bang for buck.
