Thanks mate. ECU and injectors are next on my list to install. Had them sitting in the cupboard for a while just ran out of time before Bathurst.

Will make a big difference :twisted:

Yeah being an adult to some degree.

Some degree

Working full time at the Australian Catholic University, moved to Kensington, Have Kaz's silver FTO now known as "SNOOR" after my maroon one got t-boned parked a number of years ago.

most of the community has gone to Facebook because late gen y and millennials want answers straight away and can't be fucked searching, but most some of the old guys are still around and kicking! I'm trying to organise events every now and again to get the guys together, but this adult life is hard and time consuming...whoever warned me about it, and i laughed in their face, a) i'm so sorry and b) know that i'm being punished for it now

Yep, literally 5 minute walk from your joint. Drive almost past your house on the way to work every morning. Give us a buzz if you ever need a hand. My housemate is also a racecar guy.

Bit of an update. Finally finished installing my Sard 650cc injectors a couple of weeks ago. Also updated the ECU with Nistune for injector adjustment and tuning, and to remove the annoying rev cut I experienced at Bathurst.

Took it to the dyno, managed around 320rwkw on 98, and 355rwkw on E85, at just under 19psi boost 8)

Very happy with this result. Goal was around 340 (aka 450hp), and it did 355 easily, so stopped there.

480hp will be plenty :twisted:

Next stop, heading down to WP in a couple of weeks for a test day, should be just a little quicker ;)
