My S1580

Recommended Posts

haha yeah the way my car was b4 was awesome, what dreams are made of, ppl froth over the chrome tail lights etc.

 

anyways, update

 

yes mate she the superlow rail

 

 

car came back from hyperdrive with some decent results today.

 

first run of the day was 345rwhp at 22psi,

 

after mucking around with the cam gears we managed to get this.

 

run 57 in red/brown was 4degrees advanced on intake cam. 0 degrees exhaust cam.

run 69 in green was 6 degrees advanced on intake cam, 0 degrees exhaust cam.

 

tried fiddling with the exhaust cam, but no matter advance or retard it just made it shitter in both ways.. boost came on later, less power, power dropped off alot at the end.

so in the end exhaust cam was left untouched! (probably something to do with the larger exhaust cam)

now comes in at 4500 instead of the ridiculous 4900 b4... (also due to fixing the massive exhaust manifold gasket leak).

 

should be the last update for a while now :)

that car is a beast, 267kw is a lot of power. plus the paint job really suits the front end conversion and rims. especially considering what it looked like at the start.

 

i love it.

update!

 

copped a yellow sticker (vehicle inspection thingo)

back in septemeber, since been cleared.

 

all after market mods had to be taken off, ie turbo suspension etc etc etc.

 

taken me a while to put stuff back on, just sorta got over working on the car i suppose.

while i was at it i also changed the spark plug rocker cover o rings seeing as bulk oil was pissing into the coilpacks

had it sitting around for the next 5months slowly putting shit back on it.

 

its been sitting on the stands ever since, pretty much just needed to be filled with coolant and wheels to be put back on which i couldn't be bothered doing.

 

but now ive gotten around to it!

should be on the road end of this week or start of next week :)

 

got the 205/40/17 tyres stretched on, guards will be flared, and it will be slammed.

the front is to wide for the rear and it looks out of place now

other then that the car looks great

looks awesome man

i've never been a huge fan of 180s (flip up lights have never done it for me), but seeing a few great front conversions like this has started to turn me

 

mmm *thinks about one day doing a 180.4 (or whatever)*

I think it was like 2kish in parts.

 

And I did all the work my self, so no cost in labour.

 

I think you can find the parts more cheaper these days tho, I've seen s15 headlights go for less than 500, when I got mine 700 was considered cheap.

Looks so much better with a S15 front ends i hate the pop up head lights as well lol w00t2.gif, Stock lights at the back look so much better than the after market one it had on it.

 

Rims look really good as well, good job mate thumbsup.gif

Sexual! That is indeed an awesome S15 conversion... I've seen a fair few of them, that one is awesome!

 

The only thing I would have done that you didn't would have been to delete the body lines off the doors and rear guards... Because the front guards don't have them, they look a bit weird... If you decide to get wide guards on the rear, I'd seriously consider deleting the line in the door, otherwise it would look really strange... Minor nit-pick I suppose...

 

10 points on an awesome piece of work mate!
