hahahaha

It's not that big is it :) The funny thing about it - I am expecting earlier spool up too! (we will see)

Also another update - gear box seems to be fixed now (very strange) with the new tyres on... Been doing a lot of breaking in of the new tyres haha and every time I shift into 3rd it goes in now!!!

Been running Motul 300v 5-50W for at least 7 years now (on all my cars).

I had so much oil loss on the last two engines (running >2 bar of boost) means I have switched to thicker 5-60W oil.

Now I only chew about 1 ltr for 2,000km's of driving. I can live with that.

Mate if your engine builder, as in the guy that built your engine, has told you to use that oil I'd suggest you listen to him - he will be the one getting a visit if it goes pop.

Whilst I agree with Dances with fences (lol nice nick),

Built motors usually get hamered hard.. A lot of people I know have oil loss issues with high HP setups and built motors.. 40W is un heard of where I am from :)

It's an age old debate and everyone has an opinion on this topic. If it were me - 5W-50..

Also keep in mind the temps u live in.. Singapore is always stinking hot..

The question I have - has anyone successfully installed a 4" dump pipe as it looks very tight with the steering and other RHD stuff in the way...


SMB do a 4" dump at the turbo that tapers down to 3" at the bottom

I know a few people running this dump pipe.

For your oiling issues I'd go a dry sump.

ok so did some testing :)

Not perfect conditions, tarmac was not great (rough type for good rain drainage). Good real life road conditions tho..

Good for a bench mark against my next turbo setup too.

1st run was too much revs caused too much wheelspin in 1st and thus no flat foot shift into 2nd. = 3.4sec 0-100kph
2nd run was not enough revs and a slight bog, but good flat foot shift change - 3.4sec 0-100kph.

Really know this car has potential for a much quicker time.. I'd say low 3's easy with good/perfect launch and flat foot shift into 2nd especially, maybe even in high 2's down the qtr mile.. I didn't have the luxury of many practice runs...

Also recorded a 100-150kph in 3rd = 2.7sec
80-120kph in 2.1sec (I know this could be much quicker but my gearing is too tall now)
0-60kph - 1.5 sec

Are you guys serious?

My GC8 sti makes 270awkw and I raced a 2009 R35 GTR from a 60kph roll and i pulled away, albeit, slowly.
Next run was from a set of traffic lights. From launch I got him, but then he pulled me back in from 60-100kph. Then it evened up again and i started slowly pulling away again, slowly.
My car has done 11.6 @ 123mph. It is also a much lighter GC8 how ever.

Car is in for Dom 3 XTR upgrade and FMIC install, looking at 360kw @ wheels on E85 so im guessing R35 will be a walk in the park. Considering mid to low 10s are on the cards with a GC8 with that power.

You seriously dragged up a 5 year old thread to gloat about your traffic light GP action?
