    This is brilliant, i actually prefer the s14 front rather than the 14a front end in white...

    S-body automotive. Contact Polo for digi dashes. :)

    It does everything. I have replaced all my DEFI's for this solution. It's amazing.

    Fuel guage, boost, oil temp, oil press, water temp, revs, speed, quarter mile calcs, it does data logging, it does lamda sensing, it will fucking make your fucking dinner if you put the right sensor in !!!

    Unit cost £350, with Polo wiring it in. Very good rates to wire it in!!!

    Compare this to my Defi costs, I spent almost 1200 quid on defis, and they were unreliable, and a nightmare.

    Yup.

    And moose, it's standard rocket bunny with the 'fog light cut outs' I don't think they are meant for foglights though lol.

    £350 is fooking bargain price, im sure i paid £350 just for the dash itself and it definatly aint a 5 minute job to full fit and setup. just making a good backing plate for it to sit in takes ages. awesome bits of kit tho.

    Yup. cos £350 is how much they cost lol. I then paid S-body Automotive (Polo) the extra for fitting.

    Quick run down on features:

    Road mode and track mode, both show different sets of information as standard, like the road mode shows odometer, trip counter etc, and track mode shows other toys.

    Plugging the laptop into it shows some awesome diagnostics and real time monitoring of all of the cars components, in a lovely littel graphics gui.

    Really like the dash, Im looking at one for my s14 will definitely speak with polo!

    I Love rocket bunny kits, car looks really good! I would happily swap
    My 14a front end for a rocket bunny set up!

    how long did the dash take to wire in?

    Quick update on this.

    Had some good times at the last round of the British Drift Championship in Sunderland, came 7th semi pro, and because I won the previous round, had the opportunity to qualify in the pro class.

    Qualified 15th. Drew Martin Richards. Expected to get destroyed, have so much respect for that mans driving. He put a wheel off, giving me a 10-0. Top 8, Was against Jordan Patton, who spun while chasing. Top 4, against Grant Laker, who hit me, giving me a 10-0, then the final.

    WTF, semi pro, in the final. Couldn't quite believe it. I went a 6-4 against Ian Bizz Phillips, then a 5-5, giving him the win.

    Anyway, got 2nd place. had a good time, smashed the car up again.

    Massive thanks to DriftGarage for keeping my car reliable.


    Next season will see a winter rebuild. Will hopefully see slightly more power, not alot though, i'm a big fan of low power reliability.

    New graphics. It's taking me AGES to remove this seasons livery.

    and replacing most of the panels. Thanks to Grant laker, Marc Huxley, and Matt Campling for helping with these mods. :) :wave:

    Quick update on my winter plans.

    * 2way 4.1 ratio diff
    * De-sticker
    * Respray
    * New graphics, different main focus point.
    * Rocker stoppers
    * New solenoid for my electronic boost controller
    * More power.

    I took it to a dyno day local to me, and found I was running a nice safe 245bhp on 14psi boost.

    I'd like to get 300-320hp for next season, so am looking to source the following:

    Z32 MAF
    Nismo 555 injectors
    and an upgraded turbo.

    Haven't quite decided what turbo to go for yet, as I have heard good things about the borgwarners, and after speaking to Owen developments, they were recommending the garrett GTX range to me.

    Someone else recommended I get the Holset HX30, but I have heard recently that they have stopped making these????

    I think in terms of engine safety and stability i'm doing pretty well, as have an uprated radiator, massive intercooler, and will be getting rocker stoppers fitted.

    Ignore the little up/down peaks at the top, i'm running a bleed valve lol
