  1. 220 seems a bit soft for that sort of HP. You sure you were doing it right?
  2. Next year 24 categories, 16 months to get photos in, rework a year to 24 months to accommodate. C'mon Ray, up your game mate, theirs millions of guys who want to do it!!!!!
  3. Lol I got used to it. But I must admit my hand is a bit sore after a day on the track with it, but then going back to stock doesnt feel right anymore.
  4. I have similar to this but a genuine STI one... It took a bit of getting used to as its not exactly smooth on its edges. There machined smooth but kind of have a hard edge on the top and around the sides but I dont think I would change it now.
  5. Taupo or Manfield get my votes for track location. Taupo for its general location and Manfield for its track. With me missing Mega Meet and Flatnats due to family commitments I am in with bells on for the CS 21st.
  6. Your kind of all over the show a bit but here goes... 1. Jokers spot on 2. ej20-25 will all bolt right in to the bay but having the right bolt ons is key. Hence short block (Block without bolt ons) vs. Long block (block with manifolds, Heads etc.) 3. When putting a bigger turbo in consider three things that need to work in unison ECU, Injectors and AFM(If your not deleting it). Bigger turbo means you will probably need bigger injectors to keep up, bigger injectors mean better (tunable or flashable) ecu to keep up. Remember X PSI on a VF28 is not necessarily equal to X PSI on a different turbo. A smaller turbo will flow less at X PSI a bigger one more at X PSI. The more air a turbo flows the more fuel the engine needs to keep its S*** in order. For example 18 PSI on a v5 with Yellow injectors and a VF22 = Fun times 18 PSI on a GTX3071 and yellow injectors on the same car will have issues pretty darn quick. As soon as you start getting into the realms of retunable ECUs on earlier models forged internals is recommended IMO. Bottom line, If its fast as it is and you dont have a big arse stack of cash burning a hole in your pocket just enjoy it and do something when it shits the bed. Not before. In the meantime stick about, ask questions and do some reading
  7. I gotta be honest all the chat in here aside no ones ever going to convince me a remote tune is as good as a car on a dyno with someone who understands what there looking at tuning at. I also obviously got a sick deal as I paid about the same as a stage 2 tune for my complete tune (Dyno), tidy up road tune and some minor works while on the dyno that was affecting the tune. Shop around team.
  8. I havent personally but I would suggest the extra outlay to take it to hands on tuner would probably be worth it for something as specialized as that? The ability for someone to be hands on and trouble shoot issues seems like a fairly key component to me.
  9. Best time I had on a track was in a mates DC2... Thrashed the balls off it and felt like I was doing 6 billion miles an hour down the back straight (as he burned me in my WRX lol) but bugger me I had a smile on my face when I got out of the car.
  10. I put it up on Jack stands, took the wheels off to rotate the tyres, started tittoing with the exhaust bracket I bent at Flatnats then forgot why the wheels were off and put them back on without rotating them and didnt realize until it was off the stands ... Probably the most love its going to see until December.
  11. I dont know why anyone's bothering to have the warranty chat anymore. Its pretty much just an attention seeking hot button at this stage. Thrash it, dump the clutch, give it absolute arseholes and get bailed out. Job done.
  12. If were still spending 250k I will take a 2012 E63 AMG and a deposit on a house thanks
  13. So was this resolved?
  14. That's the fellah I think. Owned Ricks old car and stacked it too I believe. Same guy?
  15. Does anyone have laptimes for Manfield including backtrack?
