  1. Stock arm s15 boost spiking

    Lol i'd be more shitted off at the tapering back to 7psi toward redline than the paltry 11-12 psi "spike" my old S14 ran 11.5 after freeing up intake/exhaust and had no issues for over 3 years (with occasional entry lvl CAMS events) until i sold it. Well not issues related to boost
  2. WANT TO BUY adm 200sx S15

    which state what's your price range?
  3. Odd startup rattle

    starter motor
  4. Street/hoon behaviour penalties

    TBH, you sound like you got off very lightly given that TREASON is considered a lesser crime compared to reckless driving nowadays. I believe your lack of prior history would have been a factor in this outcome. 12 months is firm but not unfair, $800 is nothing considering that 20 over the limit in SA is $780, which i guess they would have factored into the proportion of your income (which is then firm, but not unfair). I'd consider myself lucky given the circumstances and also be aware that if you do get caught in the future, you should just give them a giant black dong and bend over right then and there. Purplesil80, lets not shit ourselves, at some point in our enthusiast life we're all been one "wrong time wrong place" away from being in OP's position; no true car enthusiast is 100% clean.
  5. a consideration: would the drop in diameter increase response for those not aiming above ~200kw?
  6. So like my last sil, the leather on the steering wheel is starting to speckle/peel off. Currently it's not looking too bad, however i know that given a bit more time, it will start eating through the leather and into the padding, becoming a daily eyesore for me. I'm wondering is it possible to coat the leather with something like nail varnish/clear-coat paint, thus halting the degradation. Has anyone done this? can you forsee any problems (inconsistent friction on wheel, hi-reflection from sunlight)? any other alternatives to fixing this problem WITHOUT reupholstering the wheel? Thanks in advance.
  7. Flex Plates ?

    Never Buy From Nisswreck They charge more for an item than a workshop would charge to supply and fit themselves ludicrous!
  8. Boost increase is normal after changing exhaust as there are less restrictions, allowing for more spooling. with standard wastegate i wouldn't worry. i can't imagine a case where car will boost beyond what the turbo/engine can handle (except maybe occasional spiking from clutch punishment) if you're getting 1bar then just be aware of it when approaching summer to not drive like a madcunt/go tracking all day with standard cooling (IC/Rad).
  9. opinions for boost controllers

    http://www.hybrid-power.com/ The unit is in my S15, is pretty basic but it works half the price of the others as i've no experience of other controllers, i maybe missing out on features that i'm unaware of. Either installed incorrectly but does beep at me on startup until i select a boost level (lo/hi)
  10. So i got a EBC lately on my ADM S15 I've set low at 8 psi. high is set on 13psi untuned. I run the low setting for cold start/poor road conditions but switch to high when the engine is warm. While the car is managing fine from all appearances over the last 1000k's, i'm wondering does the ECU learn/adapt to engine conditions, thus will switching between 8 and 13psi "confuse" the ECU/make it less efficient? My understanding is the the ECU has a standard map for 7-9psi and can manage up to 14 unsupported (relying on O2 sensor and basic map to regulate AFRs with increased boost). I've put in these settings as my experience with silvias leads me to believe the S15 will handle that easily, but any input and technical education will be appreciated.
  11. Epic car fail thread

    See that thing on occasion in town with a bunch of Indian guys packed into it. Aside from the obvious aesthetic woes, is the diameter of the exhaust connected to it. Jews in gas chambers would have less trouble breathing than this car. Sounds emphysemic!
  12. ^^^^ On the contrary was on LucasTRW's before going to QFM's last month and was disappointed QFM dusted my pads in a week what TRW's did in a month. On top of that, i felt TRW's had better initial stopping power when cold, this lesson nearly cost me a car. The one thing i can't say is how much heat resistance the QFM's had vs TRW's That is my opinion, i could be wrong, but that is the sensation i had comparing them back to back. QFM are australian owned if that means anything
