    LOL Steve!, Its a good tip! I cant wait to get back out!! How long you been in Aussie? Was there in Perth last year for work visiting a distributor. From what I saw of Perth, it seemed a nice place. Saw a few skiddy cars there too!

    Barky is back, car finally registered in the UK after 5 years.

    9 more years before Scarlett can drive it for real...by which time I hope the car is still in one piece.

    Drove car to work today, it's fun to drive, but my god I forgot how uncomfortable they are having been driving normal cars for the past 7 years.

    Need to get car to rolling road for a power run and check mapping..car is suppose to be running close to 400HP
    Vent to atmos external wastegate is loud as fuck, that needs plumbing back in to exhaust. Engine pulls hard all the way to the redline, pretty awesome, love the SR20 with big turbo
    Coilovers needs adjusting, back is really high. Need some smaller spacers so that wheels fit under arches properly on the front. Steering is weird around centre position, seems like rack / pinion is worn at this point, there is a fair bit of play, is it a common problem?

    Can't wait to get to a DWYB session..

    Dyno session to check power and fuelling...
    [​IMG]
    Car hit 336HP at just under 1bar boost.

    BUT car was running lean, on the way home car hestitating on boost, found melted plug on no 2 cylinder.
    [​IMG]

    Found that fuel pump was not holding pressure and not rising with boost. Took out the pump, looks like a GTR pump has been fitted, swapped it out for a Aeromotive 340 (11141), pump is so much smaller.
    [​IMG]

    Fitted a set of 1 grade colder NGK Iridium plugs. Went back on dyno today to check fuelling and power, fuel pressure now holding and rising with boost. Result; fuelling is sorted and ran slightly more boost, made 362HP at just over 1.1bar.

    Car almost ready for a drift session at DWYB...
