Ah thanks man. I've got some issues with the dizzy. There is a place in Melbourne that's building me a new one. I wish I can just drive the car again.

Ah man. There's only 1 week to go to the Skylines National and my car is not even tuned yet. The tuner said they will start programming the computer on Monday. I bet there are so many people out there that's been in this situation before. I hope it gets done on Monday. :cry:

I have spoken to the tuner today. They needed to know what cam I am running so that they can set it up. I do not know why he wants that info as I do have a vernier sprocket on the cam. I thought it is a case of playing with the cam timing on the dyno to get the most out of it. I hope the car will be ready. I would hate to miss the show in my own backyard. Ah well :(

Im annoyed that I cant take my car down, but I am still waiting for a serial/usb cable for the ecu to arrive to suss out what is causing my car to die on throttle. So close yet so far.

Fingers crossed for you though, i'm eager to see your car up close :wink: Hopefully there will be a few R30's there.

Man I feel your pain. All we want to do is enjoy our Skylines. My cut of for the tuner and the show is Thursday. If I miss the show, I will defently pop in after the throttles are done. I powder coated them, but I think chroming would be better. Any pointers as to where to do something like that down there in Adelaide?

After months upon months I finally got my car back from the turner. I was extremely disappointed to see that I gained 10hp with all the modifications that I've done. I then realised that I dropped the compression ratio down to 7.1 by fitting the "better flowing" P90 head. Dumbass :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I took the head off and skimmed it by 2mm to raise the compression a little bit. I also started with the throttle bodies and I got it running. I love the sound of air trying to get away from the combustion chamber. :D :D :D

Sorry about the size of the pictures. :lol:
