It's good to know that the cam timing issue was found!
 
Even the best aftermarket SMIC will heat soak, especially on the dyno, because it's still near the hot engine. Plenty of people have made big power on SMICs, but on the dyno they get hot very quickly and have to be left to cool down for a while after every power run. Keep in mind that on the street it will always be better than on the dyno.

I can definitely understand that being that its much harder to get air flow into the side vent than if I were to be driving at speed on the road. Mark seemed pretty concerned with it being as hot as it is and is recommending me to move to a similar W2A set up as yours.

Also sorry to hear that you hit wombat in the deuce. Really hope the damage isnt too severe and will be easy enough to fix up.

Another surprise for the day. MRC sorted out the timing and had it back on the dyno tonight.

It made 217kw on 17psi. Which is pretty good knowing the TD06 has only really just began to breath at that point. The issue is that the IAT is up a 95℃ and has needed 5 degrees pulled to stop pinging.

Been on hiatus from updating this for a while now.

Not a huge amount has happened in the last six months but here is what has.

Japanese no. plates have been added (unfortunately no photos of these yet).

Dual engine lid fans installed.


Water/Meth injection.


Both added to tackle the high IAT. Seems to be running well without the water injection being tune for yet. Planning to have her back in for a tune sometime between now and early next year.

I am also currently working on my own live readout display so that I can monitor things like IAT, boost pressure etc. This will comprise of an Arduino Uno R3 microcontroller, a Can-Bus shield and an I2C LCD screen.
