    I have now replaced the pair of K&N filters, that came with the AAM TT kit, with a pair of larger ones. See photo for comparison. According to K&N's filter size recommendation, I calculated the supplied filters would be a little undersized for 500+ bhp, while my new filters would have just enough air flow. They are a bit of a tight fit behind the driver side front bumper, though. Will post another photo when job done. #RD-0720 (left) vs. #RU-1840 (right)

    Interesting, I also only know the term 'MAP tuning'

    Thanks and yes,nissanman312 has a good point there. Email Jez Horsham <jez@h-dev.co.uk>, my tuner. Maybe he can send you my tune as a base map for you?
  4. This advert should hopefully create some

    After I fixed the oil line leak I successfully relocated the intake filters , which required me to reduce the windscreen washer reservoir to about half its size. I hacksawed it into pieces and plastic welded back together, using a low wattage soldering iron. With a glue gun I touched up the one or other tiny leak hole in the weld seam. BEFORE vs AFTER : The relocation freed up some space in the engine bay where I could mount my dual OCCs (white arrows). At the same time, I converted the stock PCV system to VTA (vent to atmosphere) - the practically best solution for F.I. Just in time ready for the JapFest. See you this Sunday!

    No, I don't. Jez@H-Dev suggested a filter relocation as a future job but it was an O.K. solution at the time of install and for the time being. With the first summer coming along, my relocation gives me peace of mind and perhaps marginally better performance when the ambient temps will rise.

    All the best for your build. I have now replaced the broken oil line with a new one, made up identically by H-Dev and free of charge. Thx Jez! But I don't really know why the leak occured, seems very odd. No rubbing, heat or other obvious stresses. While my car is jacked up I am also taking opportunity to relocate my intake filter out of the engine bay for a cooler charge. It takes me making up some custom tubing. On top of this, the relocation frees up precious space for me to finally install my dual Radium OCCs But I need to remove/modify the windshield washer fluid reservoir to make space for the driver side intake filter. Will post pictures soon.

    The leak is coming from above it, better seen on this little video clip

    No that only seems so. The clearance of the oil line is plenty all around. There is not the slightest sign of it ever being touched by anything. The leak is about 15cm further up the hose. Anyways, I have the hose halfway uninstalled. Gonna ship it to H-Dev for them to make me a copy and send it back to me. The installation is simple enough. It's just my notorious lack of time for anything but work and Neo Well, I'll fix it before the Japfest meet in May

    Unfortunately an oil line for the external front-mounted oil cooler burst a large leak, 2 days ago. I rolled the car back into the garage to jack it up and remove the bumper/undertray to locate the fault. The car will be immobile for the time being It's a mysterious thing that such steel-braided line with extra protective sleeving would fail some 15cm away from the connector, at a seeminlgy random spot... Because it is way too expensive to haul the car to H-Dev (£300-400) I will have to try repair the leak myself; it's a crazy tight maze of hoses and pipes under there. Most difficult part will be sourcing a replacement pipe. Bought it in 2014 from Z1 Motorsports, USA. I've had troubling experiences with them in the past...

    TORQEN Big Brake Kit

    Thanks Adrian. Does the manufacturer provide a colour swatch of their anodised colours? Would be useful even just for lending (don't want a free one to keep)

    TORQEN Big Brake Kit

    Hi @Tinyflier, what colour are yours, AN05? @Adrian, could you provide me with a colour swatch? The online colour chart seems different to the photos, tricky to pick a colour. Regarding the templates, I can only find one for 356 but not 380, 405 mm. Thanks
  15. Please see my Ebay listing for all photos and details. Collection in person preferred, but can ship if needed.
