  12. 180 build thread - just clicked 300kw woot!

    so forgot about this thread for a while, so between the last round and round 3 tomorrow I went over and watched WTAC and as the stories goes the the cars and displays there got me thinking and well, you know how it goes next thing i had a new GTX3076 R and 0.63 rear housing on the way and the scramble began to get a manifold made new injectors on there way and the whole lot installed and tuned. Then also while this was going on i received some great news that i had been given the oppertunity to head to Vic for the Drift Attack event at the end of september and along with that a new naming rights sponsor on the car. So stepping back a bit over two weeks, the turbo arrived from Sonic Performance (thanks Jason) and the work began in ernest, i had my old turbo and manifold off and Jake from Weld Logic https://www.facebook.com/#!/WeldLogicFabrication in Hobart stepped up and got stuck in and whipped up an awesome low mount manifold, steam pipe construction and all runners within 10-15mm from the manifold i machined up a 3.5 to 4 inch flare to come off the back of theV-band rear to a new 4 inch dump/ front pipe. Its not the prettiest but trying to fit a four inch pipe beside the gearbox and under the car is a struggle in a short time frame. and the new dump and finally where Jakes work really shone through was with the housing mounted external gate running the (turbosmart 45 gate) After all the fab work had been completed in tidying up some wiring under the dash and trying to sort out why when we tuned the car last time we couldn't save the tune and had to put the computer into and r33 and load it up, well turns out i didn't have a power wire switched properly and in doing so also managed to fry my PFC I have to thanks Marty at TAS mobile mechanics https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Tasmanian-Mobile-Mechanics/194489803085 for his time and effort in sorting out my little f**k up and getting the ca up and running again. so on Wednesday night and some searching around i managed to get hold of a local fella who has lent my his computer for this weekend round of the Win TV tas drift series. We got it onto the roller last night and with a bit trickery from Nick at GT Garage https://www.facebook.com/#!/GTGarageTas we managed to run up 309kw's not bad for a stock RB25 with only a copy inlet manifold and a set of Bosch 1000cc injectors and also I have to mention yes Moonah Autoparts and Recyclers https://www.facebook.com/#!/moonah.recyclers are now naming sponsor of the car, so i have to do a huge thanks to Mozza and the boys for their help so far this season and for our future together.
  13. Put this in skyline tech forum but noticed there isn't much action in there. hey guys need some urgent help, I've got an rb25 in my 180 it having issues getting it going to get it tuned we've just gone and fitted up a new turbo, manifold and done an injector swap on my RB25, and while everything was pulled off i tidied up the wiring under the dash, it has a custom loom but in the initial wire up I forgot to add the unswitched power as we had troubles saving the map on the power fc last tune so i thought this may have been the cause, but now we've gone to power everyhting up to set the injector values before we start the car and the fuel pump relay is constantly clicking. I have the fuel pump neg on a switch so i can isolate that and when i do we can hear a feint clicking in the coil packs (disconnected the to check if it was). I've now disconnected all the wires i had played with and checked the power wires to the eccs relay but it still happens, If i check earth continuity at the relay i can get a beep on the multimeter on three pins, and there fore back at the fuse panel. could it be the relay has shit itself, as i though this shouldnt happen or with the power on will this happen. If any one has any ideas just throw them in the ring, I don't have another computer (stock or fc) at the moment to check if it will work with that but i can't see that i would have damaged anything in the computer so this shouldn't be it. I've tried a couple of things but any other ideas will be welcomed, Cheers Nick
