  1. the injectors i got for it are those ones with a cap on the top and a cap on the bottom to adapt them to different types of fuel rail and different lengths. dont get them. i fought the fucking o rings in the caps leaking for days. if the injector has even a tiny bit of angle to it as you ty and install it they leak. fucking piles of shit. managed to ruin a base seal and i dint have any spares so i had to improvise. i had a larger and thicker ones from a nissan so i set about making them smaller on the od and thinner. 2021-11-21_04-17-12 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-11-21_04-17-04 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-11-21_04-16-48 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-11-21_04-16-33 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-11-21_04-16-26 by sheepers, on Flickr with that done the only thing left to do was relocate the oil cooler and fit some fans to it. the only fans i could find that were small enough but still waterproof came from the states, they weren't expensive but they took a bit to get here. the oil cooler is now mounted on the side of the chassis rail between the engine and the rail, behind the steering rack. ive been driving it around with a thermocouple in the oil cooler just keeping an eye on the temps. its pretty good and drops fairly quickly as soon as your driving as there's a bit of air flow. so anyway i made a bracket type setup and mounted the fans onto the oil cooler. all i need to do now is wire in the relay and they should work. im back on the dyno on Tuesday so yea, lets see what happens. 2021-11-28_05-10-37 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-11-28_05-10-31 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-11-28_05-10-22 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-11-28_05-10-14 by sheepers, on Flickr
  2. shit i forgot to post the pics of the seats and carpets all done. lol, that was ages ago. 2021-08-12_06-31-20 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-08-12_06-31-12 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-08-12_06-31-02 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-08-12_06-30-52 by sheepers, on Flickr
  3. i went back to the dyno with the new intercooler and well, sometimes it doesn't go your way. had many small issues throughout the day, in the end the fuel pressure started doing strange things right at the top end so we had to pull the pin. so at the end of the day i had a semi broken car and i was two grand lighter in the pocket which always make a bad day at the dyno even better. took the fuel system apart and couldn't really find anything obvious so i threw LOTS of money at it in the hope that it will be fixed. both pumps are new, two new larger fuel filters, much larger surge tank, new FPR and new injectors. the other thing im going to do is move the oil cooler because it had trouble getting rid of coolant temp. the oil temp and inlet air temps were perfect but the water was getting hot and it took a long time to come back down. 2021-11-12_07-03-34 by sheepers, on Flickr
  4. exactly! you can see the predicament I'm in.
  5. totally forgot to post the finished pictures. sorry, i finished this a week ago. 2021-10-25_04-07-31 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-10-25_04-07-45 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-10-25_04-07-51 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-10-25_04-07-59 by sheepers, on Flickr
  6. righto so i wasn't happy with the left side of the spoiler so i cut it off and made a new one. i was really happy with the fit and the shape so i went about finessing the thing to get it how i wanted it. i radiused the bottom corners and went about making it stronger, i welded a couple of bits of 1.6mm thick sheet all the way along the bottom edge to stop it flopping around then i set about making a good mounting for it. i ended up welding a bit of 3mm plate to it that bolts to the bottom of the intercooler bracket so its pretty strong. then i put another bit of 1.6mm sheet right across the lowest most forward point in the hope that when i inevitably crash it into something its got a bit of strength to it. then i put a coat of primer on it. and today i sanded it, put some bog on it and put some more primer on it. tomorrow ill wet sand it and put some colour on it and its finished. also this is the english wheel i bought. i wouldn't know a good english wheel from a fucking sandwich but this one worked for the thing i did and i was really happy with how well i was able to make the steel do what i wanted, so yea. 2021-10-20_07-24-20 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-10-24_03-00-29 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-10-24_03-00-39 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-10-24_03-01-06 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-10-24_03-00-55 by sheepers, on Flickr
  7. they're good. no noise that i know of, but tbh this car is pretty loud so yea, take from that what you will. tbh if they made pilot sport 4 in a size i could use on the back of this car id swap tomorrow. pilot sport 4 is the best tyre ive ever had by a long long margin.
  8. time to make a front air dam for this thing. its only been needing one for 16 odd years so I've really not hung around on this. i bought an english wheel and a bead roller, neither of which i have any idea of how to use but you gotta start somewhere. so i made up a wire frame using 3.2 dia welding rods then put some cardboard on it. i used the cardboard as a template to cut out some steel then i went about wheeling a tiny bit of shape into it just to give the pieces some rigidity. with some folding, some beating with a mallet and a bit more rolling i ended up with what you see below. for a first time doing this im fucking amazed at how good it is, im really happy i was able to get the shapes i did without fucking it up too much. having said that im going to start again with the sheetmetal and make another one. i learned heaps just making this first one and i know i can make the second one better so i will give it a go. 2021-10-20_08-03-54 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-10-20_08-03-48 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-10-20_08-03-40 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-10-20_08-03-31 by sheepers, on Flickr
  9. i like how you've set this up so the first time you crash it not only is your nut sack your air bag, you get 3rd degree burn to the scrotum to add to the fun. well done.
  10. yea me too. ive got the last pieces of the puzzle on the way then itll go back on the dyno for a quick tickle and ill see what difference it makes.
  11. forgot to post these. first is R32 GTR intercooler core design. second is plazmaman core. 2021-09-28_06-56-17 by sheepers, on Flickr 2021-09-28_06-56-26 by sheepers, on Flickr
