    You really don't need the oil cooler for the diff, most people find theirs has never ran and just rip them off and block the pipes.

    +1 for this. When I did my S14 subframe swap I pulled all the diff cooler out. The pipes & cooler core where bone dry. I pulled the diff out of a mates S14 & the pipes actually had dust in them.

    Would a T04E be too much for a CA18?
    i.e. laggy or just plain too big?

    There's lots of different sizes so you'd have to be more specific.

    None that will fit on the standard manifold tho.

    Have you considered lifting your foot a touch? And they dont sound e.p.i.c, they sound noisy and piss of track owners.

    Not at all just a couple of wires that you have to join with the ECU, say what 20 mins? Just have the pin diagram to hand. Was thinking of getting one for my current but no use really. Besides joining to the ECU wiring there's nothing else to do to install it just play with the settings for desired effects.

    some people have installed a LED light between the power supply and the pump. the LED light turns on as soon as the pump gets power.

    No not yet mate, ive not really looked too deep into it yet just shut up the workshop n left it sat there. A few people have suggested it could be different things. Not sure what im gonna do engine wise either stick at the ca's or go a different route.
