In Topic: Full boost - GSR project

Thanks, the videos are a lot of effort, probably 5 different shooting days to cover that one. Thanks a lot to Barry, he spent many hours helping me out.


There are things i didn't go into in this video that may be tackled in another video


When the ECU was updated the boost went to shit, started off at 7psi and climbed to 12psi. It made 208kw which seemed high for the boost.Took some time to sort that out, then the boost was set at 14psi and coming on nice and early, yet it made zero difference to the power graph. As you can see it's totally linear and the car drove like that, car feels really lazy down low whereas as it used to be very punchy (it's not as noticeable on the track as the engine is always in a high range). They suspect my exhaust cam is retarded, hence the engine just wants to keep revving. I'm not too concerned as it will all be sorted out soon. 


They also discovered the next week that the dyno's toque reading in awd was incorrect and it was fixed.I had wondered why the torque reading was so low.


My timing was not sitting stable, it was jumping around a little. It's probably a good time I get my timing belt replaced and get a more accurate timing setup done.

Can anyone recommend options around trigger kits? And ones that work with balance shafts as I think if I ever rebuild the motor I'll be looking at putting the balance shafts in.



I feel that if I run the car like this more at the circuit, it wont last long it's very hard on it.


Thanks for the advice on the gearboxes.

They are larger (I think 14mm), wasn't my first choice, but mechanic had already got some parts for me.

The 044 is bloody loud, ok with the windows up lol

ok, finally got some stuff done ( I was injured so wiped out the second half of last year).



I'm going to see how it runs at the track and then do the injectors. Still not sold on going full-time E85.
