Update time again:D

Off I went to Rathnew this morning to TDP for a HKS FCon and a map! I am absolutely chuffed with the results to say the least, wasnt expecting what I got. Got a good report from Robbie and co as well, engine and turbo are both spot on with absolutely no signs of problems. Think they were slightly surprised about the results as well which is always a good thing:D

Anyway heres the figures


Flywheel Horsepower

Wheel Horsepower

Thats the figures based on standard boost so as I said I'm well chuffed. Want to say a big thanks to all at TDP as well! Cheers guys. Will certainly be recommending them to anyone & everyone in the future

Forgot I had this thread here so I might as well update it 8)

Done a bit over the last few weeks so here we go. The brakes were shot, I mean completely! Also thought one of the discs was warped due to a judder under hard braking so ordered a set of EBC grooved discs and redstuff pads for all 4 corners. Also the oil pump was on its way out so ordered a new one from the US as it was a fraction of the price. €160 delivered from LA and Nissan Ireland wanted €750 plus VAT, do the maths. Also decided to do the gearbox and diff oils as they have never been changed since I got the car and felt it would be worth a change

So here the pics from the brakes, I did them myself which was a nightmare. I know its not a difficult job but there was just problem after problem with them!


Front Drivers Side

Rear Drivers Side

Rear Passo Side

Front Passo Side - For some reason I took this pic without the caliper

After that I got the car dropped over to Roco to have the oil pump done and the gearbox and diff oils. The guages were due to be put in as well but he didnt have time so they'll hopefully be going in when he's back from holidays. Thats it now for this year there's no more to be done, picked up two part worn tyres during the week for the NCT which unfortunately had to be postponed due to issues with oil pump so thats the end of the month and then no more until next year.

The plan for next year is a full respray and finish the bodywork. Putting on new front wings and something to extend the rear (maybe GTR rear wings) and a GTR spoiler and sprayed red. If they funds allow then next year I'm gonna start prepping it for a new turbo and all that goes with that but we'll see what happens!
