Back to the garage

Some fresh news.

So the run in continue but not as smooth than at the beginning.

As I come close to the 2000km, i start to push the car a little higher in the rev.

I discover that the car has some trouble around 5000rpm ( when i reached 5000, the indicator jumped between 4800 and 5200 rpm).
As turbo pressure stood stable, we thought that i had some misfires.
Beside that, when we check the car with my brother-in-law, we also discovered that there was a crack in the turbo outelt pipe (front turbo).

So the car is back to the garage waiting for my last order :

-) Tomeï outlet turbo pipes

-) New gaskets for the turbo outlet

-) New coils (and harness for the coils). I choose OEM ones because 
  1. I found some feedbacks with durability trouble on Spitfire ones (and if something can go wrong in a car. I'll have the problem)
  2. As tempting as the Okada plasma option is, my budget does not stretch.
-) New Kakimodo Type R exhaust system. As I intend to use my 33 to make some "long" distance, the kakimoto one will be better with his intermediate silencer than the noisy Japseed one I curently had.

-) New Iridium BKR7EIX spark plugs.

Hope to receive the whole lot quickly (and find some time to fix all).

Small things

Hello everyone,

No big news today, just received some little OEM parts to have a "proper" car.
  • New sticker for front bar
  • New center caps for OEM wheels  (as i will keep the original wheels to drive in winter/autumn with Nokian winter tyres, they will be reconditionned this summer) 
  • Emblems (Not sure i took the right ref.)
  • Grommet screw (mine is nearly completely away)
  • I also received some clips to fix back inside the rear boot and new seals for the decat (not on the pics)

I hope that good weather will come back soon so I can install all this stuff.
