Thankyou

I thought you were running 575hp mate.
Interior looks amazing, did you make all the housings yourself.

Yes it's mapped to 575bhp but that's a meth map. That video was on plain old vpower so only 525bhp.
No matter what Bhp figures people spout on here none of them are permanently driven at full power.
525 is plenty, 575 map is for weddings, birthdays and bahmitzvahs only.


Gonna replace the horrid cap heads with some smooth buttons, to try and make it look less garish but it can't really be seen much from the rear of the car.
I was sick and tired of my bumper melting from the radiant heat of the exhaust tip so decided to finally do something proper about it.
Tried the dei self adhesive reflection mat and that burns off too.
So gone with a more permanent solution, I just hope this works.

If the exhaust tip colour I anything to go by its seeing between 270/340 degrees C.
Toasty!

Too expensive to be honest Ollie.

3.95 and a packet of wine gums, might even throw in a bottle of fizzy wine for your good lady, Frayz.

Interior looks great, not sure on the exhaust heat shield though. CF would have been more subtle.

Lol too expensive Ollie.
Micky I don't like it either but hate those CF things more.
I'm going to have a play with it maybe VHT it black with black fasteners and see how it goes. First and foremost... It's gotta work!

It might look better with different fixings. It's them that makes it look "wrong".

Actually working is the main thing though.

I swapped the fixings today and it looks much better.
For now I'll see if it works, if so then I'll paint it black and add black smooth rivets.

New hardware looks much better. If it functions well then I may remove and paint black.
Happy enough for now though.

I've been cleaning some bits on the car in the sun this morning.*Weather was too nice to miss.
The engine bay still looks smart and it's been back on the road almost a year now.*
Couple of extra snaps of the exhaust shroud too.*

One of the best attention to detail cars I have had pleasure to map.

Wish I can eventually get my own as neat and tidy

Thanks guys. She doesn't look too sad for a 10 year old jap box.
Nice when others appreciate the amount of effort thats gone in.
Deep down I guess I am quite proud of it.

Simon, random idea...
Would a 30billet for more spool or 35 billet for more power?

Or leave well alone?

If you had already got to this point and were asking beforehand not having already bought a turbo I would say a gt30r billet for road would be best but when you have a gt35 already the swap v gain is less. When you factor in cost. But then you can sell your gt35
