  1. RIP John Coffey (johnc)

    Thinking back when he used to autox his RX-3, those were fun years at Cal Club events. He always was and forever be appreciated for his straighforward, no fluff, answers. Hi techical knowledge was huge. Certainly my prayers for his family, even at this late post.
  2. It only took 14 years!!

    Nice work, who is your local tuner? This may be my next steps, single turbo route, I've been tracking on the stock turbos, reliable but ready for upgrades. And what EM are you using? So far I'm heading for the plug-n-play AEM.

    Hi Carlton, The Quaife was installed then I street drove it about 50 miles easy pace as suggested, and then tracked it on one event. No noises or any overheating, all seem to work great. I noticed how nice it pulls off corners now! M Factory diff shop in CA installed it, Offset Motorwerks did the R/R, also installed a filtered breather hose to vent high in the rear deck area. Do you get noises with yours? This is the fluid I'm using
  4. Following your build, sounds wicked! How long is your plan before track ready? Hope to see ya soon, tracking, since you're local.

    Sweet finished product and awesome pics! My track build will never be that pristine. Keep modding...
  7. Track day 'fun' project

    Track day at Auto Club Speedway Fontana CA, Nissan Challenge, had fun with the new Quaife! So planted out of corners! Here's a short clip in the faster Red/Race group Sorry for the bit of glare, need to place GoPro mount in a better loc. https://youtu.be/3pkpY1T_b2M One issue: 280ZX brake booster gave out, but the good thing is, lets me modulate braking so much better with the firmer set up. So, need recommendations up for booster delete.

    Next track day coming up! Quaife is in!! Prelim drive-around seems solid. I'll have some good company, Nissan Challenge at Auto Club Speedway, Speed Ventures event. Recent Z Bash put out by Motorsport Auto - zcarparts.com
  9. Motorsport Auto Z Bash 2016

    Note they're expanding the venue to include all Datsuns and Nissans. I'm targeting the early Sat am cruise also thru Carbon Canyon Road. Here's the direct link: http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/CTGY/WCN

    Ian, what can you say about differences, your experience, between the Quaife and OS, since I've bought the Quaife already, just needed the install with new bearings etc?
  11. Track day 'fun' project

    Prepping for another track day, all's going well. EM is still in the works, probably going with AEM. Couple of upgrades very soon though - Quaife LSD, lighter seats. Local warm-up https://youtu.be/eILUnbC7h-U

    Apprec that info, Ian, I'd take it that the MAF will be thrown out when using any of these systems, which will free up room in the engine compartment?
  13. Track day 'fun' project

    That is true, Sovereign, this was the case with the Evolve-R e-tunes for my M3, they're in Britain and does take a while for any turnaround/updates. I have a couple of local enough sources to 'interview', I guess the more back and forth questions/answers will tell me which shop to go with. One that seems knowledgeable is FSR Motorsports in Montclair CA. They specialize more on 2JZ motors but have actually tuned RB motors before.
  14. Track day 'fun' project

    I was just discussing options with a local tuner familiar with the RB26. They suggested AEM ECU to replace the stock Central SPL for the various tunable options (pump gas, E85, etc) AND available support. Any inputs? Ian you mentioned the G4+, how does it compare? Anyone has experience on a reliable crank trigger system (Ross, ??) to replace the stock CAS? Again, I'm interested in a step-wise approach to mods, aiming at just over 300whp from the current 256whp.

    Track pics courtesy of Caliphotography. Front straight speeds about 130 so far first time out at current tune (8.5 lbs boost) plus Quaife not installed yet. Next target, shave 5 secs off to match M3's times at ACS. Looking into Nismo R-tune or AEM options....
