Its been awhile

Car running smoothly and is lots of fun to drive.

Due to for a service in next couple of weeks.
At the same time want to replace my magnecor spark plug leads as they dont really have a snug fit. Will get some spitfire ones.

Finally tested fuel, i get about 450km per tank if i drive like a nanna.

New stuff:
Slotted brake discs for the front.
Dyno 270hp atw at 15psi
Repainted rims.
Eng prop lid kit

Next:
My front sway bar snapped. Gota replacement already.
Gota fidanza short shift kit ready to roll, (being borrowed to see how it feels).
Some mr2 center caps to replace the nissan ones.

Heres some pics of the unwashed puppy:

he still has 225's on the rear and 205's on the front, plus he drives like a granny so handling isn't really something he need's......

Some updates...

>Replaced cam cover for red.
>Got some new gold wipers, yet to install. Hopefully not to ghey.
>Fixed stereo wiring.
>Got my ic water spray pump working again. Need to mount lower or buy a valve to stop it leaking due to gravity/height of tank being higher than ic.

Issues:
My original tune was crap.
My boost is 14 and doesn't hit that till 4.5k rpm. Should be hitting 3-3.5k
When running from 3rd gear and starting low at 4k it gets to 12psi and flutters up and down 11 and 12 psi and then eventually goes up. The tuner played around with my avcr settings and im pretty sure screwd it. To check a few things i removed the avcr controller solenoid and boost went right up, and hard on any gear. I cleaned out my solenoid and could it hear clicking when testing with a battery, so i believe it should work. Im a little worried that i would tune again (power fc and avcr) and find out the my avcr solenoid is stuffed. Anyways im taking it Tristian at wtf to do the tune this time, he should do a great job. Other than this the car runs perfect.

Over 4 years since the last update.... wowser.
 
Its mainly garaged and taken out on the weekends.  It still turns many heads which is a laugh. I ended up getting some new rubber and replacing an alternator - which was a pita. Other than that no major changes.
