So I had an issue with my turbo so decided to trial another turbo, after recommendations I went with the Dom 1.5 7cm and absolutely love it! The car made power power, is more responsive on less boost across the range. I'm now probably at the limits in terms of power and response when it comes to my engine. The car makes 20 - 21ps by about 3100rpm and pulls like a steam train

Big thanks again to the guys at Got It Rex

That's pretty good. The 7cm really helps spool it into the mid range there. What is the red line? 6500?

You say less boost, so it's set to 20-21, what did you have it at before?

It was 22 - 23 psi from memory. I also added a set of PSR UEL headers and Cobb heatshield.

Looking good. Looks neater in a way without the heatshields all over the headers.

Thanks, all the heatshields had cracked for the 50th time anyway, they were retired lol

Next mods - learning to detail it myself, coilovers and flex fuel

Very nice , I for one love the wheels black ... as a detailer it's nice to see people keep their cars clean under the bonnet too !!

Is the graph at the top of the page a 98ron or E85 tune?

Re: Engine bay pics.

What did you use to make the rubber and plastic bits shiney? Ive been using tyre shine and it comes up very nice but everything sticks to it like a fly to sheet. Sand. Dust. You name it.

What did you use?

Tyre shine tends to just be silicone spray. Use aerospace 303, available at supercheap.

This is a quick and easy shot of how my car currently stands, check the side trim. After I stripped the awful peeling home job that the previous owner did and returned it back to bare black, I then 303'd it. Freaking sweet as bro. :)
