    I read it somewhere but forgot. Maybe @Adrian@TORQEN remembers. I just read the EFR Turbo Tech Brief and found that our wastegate actuators come in three canister sizes, simply called "low", "medium"and "high boost". If I remember correctly, my AAM TT kit came shipped with the "low boost" option where WG cracks open at <10psi. (Medium=10-15psi, High=20-30psi). I am so thrilled for your massive 610Nm!! Mine also makes 590Nm at 3krpm and it spun stock rubber in 3rd (or in 4th on damp road). So, yes, it is scary to test drive it hard Upgrade to Michelin PS4S a.s.a.p!

    Thanks guys! Also, have just fitted Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads [F: #HB601Z.626, R: #HB602Z.545], and bedding them in today. There'll be much less much-hated brake dust in the future (my main objective; the OEM bite was actually sufficient for my kind of driving)

    Woohooo! I made it into the September 2018 issue of the BANZAI car magazine, pp. 58-62, and a poster on p. 56

    I prob won't notice anything. If anything, the slight drop near rev limit on the dyno might go away as the AAm filters were running out of flow at around 500hp. But I wanna get a new tune in the future, anyway. I am currently rebuilding all my vac/boost lines that run from the Compressor housing to the BCSV, from there to the WGs, and lines running from the I/Plenum to the CRVs (Compressor Recirculation Valves = BorgWarner's BOV alternative). Those rubber/silicone lines are meters and meters long. I am routing them much shorter and replace much with S/S hard lines. Copper lines are for mock up test routing, Stainless Steel is for final vac hard lines.

    Rennen GT Wing for the Z

    I don't want to take sides or defend their design details, but as I understood Kay last Saturday, the wing mounted to the show car was still a prototype, i.e. shaped with lots of filler rather than by using the now available mould. He also told me he'd still rework the mounts. I am hopeful the varying gaps up top will also be addressed in the final product.

    Cool! No doubt there’ll be demand for 350Z. Now we need 370Z coverage, too Love the racing inspired top-mount design. Don’t think there’s anything like it on the market.

    Rennen GT Wing for the Z

    Met the people @Rennen GT at JapFest Donington with Kay's head turning MR2 and drop-dead gorgeous rear wing. Kay designed and fabricates this (universal) rear wing in house here in Essex. When I told him about my strong interest in this wing he was keen to design a bespoke mounting solution for the 370Z (among other cars)! Kay@Rennen GT is looking for a volunteer 370Z that he could use as test vehicle for a couple of days for fitting purpose (with a considerable discount for the volunteer as reward). Any interested people from London or around Brentwood, Essex? I had immediately jumped in on the opportunity if it wasn't so terribly far away for me

    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) Fitting done. Here to see how the new filters reside in the outer corners of the front bumper, when viewed from the front wheel well. The driver side is a tight squeeze.

    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?
  13. This advert should hopefully create some
