I haven’t updated in a while. I’ve had the car back for a couple of weeks now. Been enjoying driving it, and fine tuning “the tune” on the street.
Car is quicker, but I would not say leaps and bounds. Gained about 50WHP. The notable improvement is throttle response and boost build up at tip in. Takes much less time to come on, and you have boost at much lower RPMs. The improvement in responsiveness is there, which was my primary driver.
While it was being worked on put the last piece of my Spec V puzzle with the actual Challenge produced Nissan Spec V subwoofer housing! Saving those fucking grams! Also installed the newest iteration of the bell housing as a preventative measure. Sounds completely different. No more clunk vibration, more of a smaller high frequency rattle. Feels less “loose”.
I’ve got another 30-40HP locked in my exhaust set up. NISMO downpipes (catted) and factory exhaust are holding me back. I’ve got AMS down pipes, and AMS mid pipe (with 100 cell cats for smell) on order. Going to mate up to an HKS Spec R Ti exhaust.
Once that’s on next week, a bit more street tuning, and DONE!
Photos to follow. Hope everyone is doing well.
