  1. My Burgandy CA 180sx

    This place still exists. LOL, i still haven't put the engine i built 9 years ago in the car.
  2. Alright I will check again with a HT lead when I get a chance. I understand that but the timing light/crank doesn't differentiate between the strokes therefore the mark on the crank should be the same. The spark will fire every second revolution but at the same point relative to the crank. I have always used the ignition lead method which as you found is a lot more gives much more consistent results
  3. #1 and #4 are 360 degrees apart in their firing time. The pistons look like they are a matched pair in terms of the crank throw but when #1 is on compression stroke, #4 is on exhaust stroke.
  4. EFR to GTX Comparison

    They aren't really comparable If you compare power the EFR will be more responsive than the GTX of the same power and if you compare response the EFR will make more power. So it really depends on what your interested in? Read away; http://www.sau.com.au/forums/topic/341890-borg-warner-efr-series-turbos/
  5. you should only have to put the long shaft in. But if it's not lining up then something has gone wrong and you have to pull it down again.
  6. speed sensor gear colors

    There would have to be something different internally as well; there is only two teeth difference between the gears so that wouldn't account for a 50% reduction in the indicated speed, more like 10%. So there must be a difference in the pluses per revolution sent by the senders as well.
  7. I have always used permatex ultra blue and have never had anything leak. You just have to make sure both surfaces are completely clean, i wipe everything down with metho before i apply the sealant.
  8. CA18 Sump Gaskets Wrong?

    was the seller N*Power on ebay?
  9. EFR 7163 results

    200km in to running in; your about 150km late to tune it for power and give it a flogging.
  10. Spring cruise

    Might come down on my bike if i get the chance.
  11. And a Tomei M7960 is just a TD06SL2-20G with fancy housings.
  12. Foxtail, Either your T25G is in fact a T2 GTR Turbo or a GTS-t turbo with a T2 housing or your turbine is steel.... There are NO Silvia/180sx turbos with factory ceramic wheels. Anyhow as pmod has stated once you start running more than 12PSI there are no a lot of gains to be had as the compressor charge will be quite hot and power wise you'll be going backwards.
  13. T28 hot pipe snout

    Here's my setup using the same bracket (un-anodised though);
  14. Really the only thing that was holding me back was not wanting to kill the engine as it only gets punished when it gets driven and its still stock internally. The new engine (when i get time to finish it) will be pushed to the limits of the turbo and with the HKS 260x9.0 cam i have i would want to see at least 250 on pump and 265+ on E85. I'll be getting an EFR7163 soon after running in the new engine, but will still see what we can get out of the 2871 before switching. With the EFR i'll probably go with a solid head and i'm tossing up machining up a ITB manifold using GTR TB's. I didn't get a torque graph for that run but you can calculate it and there is a direct relationship between power torque and RPM. Here's a sheet that i made up a while ago.
