@Kiwiflyboy I believe in stock form they only put down between 240-255hp at the wheel. My K&N intake came with this piece of paper

After installing the K&N intake I decided to take the vacuum hose off of my blowoff valve and then seal the hose off. This was the result

You should take the hose off your wastegate actuator while you're at it.

I'm sure the spring wouldn't be strong enough to hold the gate closed

For science, go do a 200+kph pull on your "private road" and let us know if it does.

Found out why my 2nd gear went boom at the track day on Wednesday. After reviewing the Gopro footage from inside the car and looking at the data logs from the Link ECU it shows when my mate was driving it, He downshifted to second at about 110kmphr, released the clutch with out rev matching and it was all over!

 

Looks like will have to rethink about this shared driving stuff.....

Will put it up in the next few days, It sounds NASTY as you hear the metal go through the rest of the box!

:eek:

 

Edit: At least it was the gearbox and not the pistons/rods flying through the block at 10,000rpm

yeah, finally changed the thermostat, woohoo car gets to temp now.
Decided to also power up the defi controller and gauges I have.
Turns out I bought an N/A manifold pressure gauge(mixed problems of facebook deals and BF gauges) LOL max reading 0.2 Bar
Water temp gauge works well though.
So; I have a Defi manifold pressure gauge F/S haha

Hit a cyclist with it!

Luckily there were no major injuries, just some bruises. Hi bike has a buckled back wheel. 

Was at a roundabout and pulled out but did see the cyclist and knocked his back wheel.

Has left me very shaken, as I* know the feeling of being knocked of a bike.

 

Please make sure you check and double check at intersections as I was lucky that this was not worse.

That sucks man... If it were me I'd be saying "that's your problem buddy" and having them fix the gearbox xD All my mates know if you drive the car and you break it, you fix it haha 

Hope he helps out with it

LOL I don't want die grinded cam journals thanks xD (for others, it's an inside joke)

Nah it wasn't your fault though bud. If you were to have been at fault, down shifted and sent a piston through the block, heck yeah you'd be stumping up a new motor, but yeah.
