  1. Yes - they are tough . This is also the Torsen version .
  2. Going a different route with my car . Sold to me used with 30k miles . As you can see it’s super clean . I am willing to pop the cover if buyer requests . asking 750$ ships from 47401
  3. Looks like the same pistons I run with the dish . Smart man to put arrows on the pistons. You won’t put one in the wrong place like I did - lol.
  4. That’s what I run , 18-20 degrees .
  5. Where’s the English version !
  6. This tailshaft housing allows anyone running the Nissan T5 to upgrade to a World Class T5 and have the shifter in the stock Nissan position . This Aussie version of the T5 was made for the larger output shaft -1.5”. Basically you could grab a Foxbody Mustang transmission and slap this on and have the shifter in the Nissan location . Or you buy a brand new Tremec t5 like I did and swap out this tailshaft housing . Tailshaft comes with shifter rod which is required . There are slight mods to make the World class work with the L series . The input shaft has to be the short 10 spline . That also means a change of clutch - which I run an organic Mustang clutch disc . The input shaft will have to have the nose machined down for the pilot bushing . Output is 26 spline so the DS will have to modified . So far I have no complaints with the Tremec T5 other than the OD being huge .63 . 2400 rpm is 80 mph . I might get 30 mpg ! Reach out to me for any questions I will ship anywhere .

    Starts are always the challenge I feel . Hot start when one side is struggling to get fuel makes it worse. I’m still working these things out myself with my new tune .

    Im still not keeping up -lol Now tuning on a Protunerz intake . Not much different than the last intake but the longer runners help the low end . Something I’ve noticed with ALL these plenum intakes is that the air is not always equal across the cylinders . I am probably one of the very few that has a 6-2 header that continue on to duals AND have a Wideband on each side of the exhaust . The tendacy of these plenums that under high vacuum situations ( idle or lower KPA) , the first 3 cylinders indicate that they run leaner - as if they are stealing the air out of the room . As soon as KPA gets above idle the AFR’s start to even up quickly . Not sure if you could detect this on the plugs unless you ran your engine very lean . The Megasquirt 3X allows for injector trim which I have been adjusting . To get AFR’s to match up between the two banks I add as much as 20% to high vacuum cell areas . It also can be felt by a smoother engine operation . Now this is mostly over- run conditions and light throttle modulation during highway cruise . I’ve checked calibration on my Spartan 14.7 wideband and they seem correct . I have my ego sensors separated by banks . I guess I also wonder why tuner analyze won’t pull in more fuel in these situations , I use the same AFR table for both ego sensors . Just thought this was interesting and most won’t see this with their 6-1 header where it all averages out
  10. I’ve reached out to Modern Driveline to see what Paul thinks . I think at the time he did offer a .75 OD at an extra cost . I didn’t think about this scenario . I’ve asked if I can use the NWC 5th gear like it was on my G Force
  11. Swapped out cams today and my back knows it . So I’ve never had this cam in with the Protunerz intake . I did run this Bonk 1 with the N42 intake . Lots of torque down low . The larger runners(38mm) are huge compared to the n42 and that alone moved the power band up the rpm’s range . The Bonk 2 just exacerbated the loss of low end . i think this might be a good midway place to be . Id probably say that the runners could be a little smaller to be optimum . I will dyno run this thing whenever I think I got it tuned in well . Just found the only negative of my new WC trans. The .63 overdrive puts me right in the drone zone - it’s about ridiculous . Not sure what I can do about it . I have resonators in my exhaust - but might have to try a Hemoltz style to fix this . Good day all in all .
  12. I neglected to share my transmission upgrade/downgrade - depends on your perspective . I was previously running a GForce T5 with straight cut gears . Whine was cool for one year and I was over it . Loved being able to slam gears and not worrying about shock loading the trans . Really liked all the shifter options with the T5. i know some guys don’t like the heavy/ notchy shifter , but I like the feel . I didn’t want to replace the G Force with the OEM NWC T5 . Didn’t want a 71B or 71C and parts are getting scarce . CD009 meant more weight , less room and more retro fitting . What I did was found a way to run a new Tremec T5 world class . I had to source a tailshaft from a WC T5 that put the shifter in the right position . NWC output shaft is only 1.3” and a WC is 1.5” so you can’t use the NWC tailshaft unless you weld build it and machine it out and hope it gets done right . I got Modern Driveline to help me out doing the R&D . I sourced a WC tailshaft from a Commodore out of Australia . Shifter location is exactly the same . Modern Driveline machined the input shaft for proper length and pilot bearing size . I run a Ford clutch and I run an internal slave unit . Modern Driveline installed the tailshaft on their new trans and made sure it worked good . That put a new detent plate in for the shifter and since I bought the trans new they honored their 2 year warranty ! Trans is very quiet and so far all is good . It’s rated at 330 ft pounds on a 3300 pound car , so it’s plenty strong enough . Best part is the trans bolts in just like the Nissan one . Yes you also need to modify the DS
  13. Been driving her around with the new shiny bits and everything seems to be working well. No dyno runs coming up. I plan on swapping out my Bonk 2 cam to got back to Bonk 1 . Not sure I want or like this huge cam . Power band is really high which is okay - but I want some more low end . I think the longer runners with this intake has made things better than the previous intake , but power band is still way above 4K . I built a motor that can handle these rpm’s , but I’m wanting a little more civility for the road . Then there’s the stink of all that duration . So if anyone is looking for a race cam I will be selling this Bonk 2 . Now that I’ve gotten rid of the noisy G Force trans I can hear myself think driving around . Now I can hear noises that maybe were there before and I just could hear them . I think my Kameari tensioner is making the noise I hear now . Not sure how I can verify that though .
