S15 Spec R VVL kicked in YO

Recommended Posts

my mechanic is myself haha

the tuner is me

 

however I use and endorse Mark @ MRC for all work and tunes. The guy is like Yoda when it comes to tuning, Nistune, flex, race cars etc... he even had some input into Adaptronic's design and functionality.

Engine porn anyone? Well my rear molds aren't arriving from Japan for a further two weeks so now I may as well save some extra cash to get my 60mm gauges fitted in while it's at the electricians. Had them mounted in last night, ready to be wired ,

 

@nonac That roof looks nice and shiney dude :)

With the car since it's been a while now, I thought I'd let everyone know that yes the car is still an on going project, it's not legal just yet and I'm still waiting on those overnight parts from Japan to show up

 

I've just been wanting to tidy her up a little bit so ordered brand new OEM front inner guard plastics, brand new OEM steering wheel, Z Racing spiked steel wheel nuts and just replaced my front door cards with mint condition items just yesterday

Been a while since I last updated, as of last week the car became 100% legal which I drove down country (a two hour drive) to my tuner for a road tune. Road tune was thankfully a success and been driving the car hard for the last couple of nights now, 2nd at a roll will powerslide to the left a bit but 3rd and onwards foot flat just grips dead straight on me. There is a issue that my starter when hot just doesn't quite get enough voltage to start though so when money is available I just have to take it in and get bigger wires hooked up

Been a while now that I last updated

 

End of last year I brought a set of genuine 52mm AEM gauges in boost, oil pressure and air/fuel ratio that I was going to have installed but end of 2016 and beginning of this year has seen its share of teething issues I've had with the car

 

Starting from a cracked front bumper and a cracked boot spoiler, to a couple of new oil leaks, a problem with my CAS hitting the firewall etc but it's all since fixed as of around a month and a half to two months ago

 

Ended up entering a big New Zealand car show called 4&Rotary where I took out best power output in the Tough Street class with a few shots of the car here

 

I'm hoping to change things up with the engine in a years time with what I've been saving so far unless plans change and I wind up spending the money on more "important things"

Not much has changed with the car but finally purchased a set of genuine wheels being Work Emotion D9R's, and got around to getting my set of AEM digital display gauges in my air vents. Entering its first track event start of next month
