It may be a Japanese imported 'Type A' like my car is. I wouldn't think an Aussie delivered one would have Japanese writing on vin plate?

So I'm not a qualified auto electrician, but I am pretty sure my EFI fuse shouldn't look like this.

Nope, stock fuel system.

 

My factory ECU did start going slowly insane (workshop's words) last year so I'm wondering if this was damaged then or what.

 

Replaced it and she's driving better than she has in ages so fingers crossed that was the issue I'd been having.

DynoRun35R528whp.jpg

 

Reading up on nice 720whp turbo upgrades available in the States : http://www.koracing....=11&product=222

 

The above dyno is for less, but still rather nice.

 

For some $4000+ it really seems to be a cost effective upgrade. It's also still great to see that these products are still available.

 

One day... maybe.. [or not].

Kris's turbo kits are nice and he is great to deal with (Kris Osheim = KO).

much better than ATS imo.

you also have local option such as 6boost manifolds, just need to make down pipe and lines plus intake and intercooler piping.

 

pick your hp goal then pick turbo. anything over about 300awhp imo requires forged pistons and ecu. some people disagree but i have pistons saying otherwise...

ooohhh shit thats expensive !

A few years ago i purchased a used but immaculate grp.A bumper.

It cost $400 plus free EXPRESS post from japan, took only a few days to arrive.

I cant imagine spending that much money on a bumper



Also, thanks heaps for all the replies. I'm fast learning that this may be the friendliest forum on the internet.

Not really.

 

I'm just trying to get my old ST-185 ready for some light track work, starting with brake and suspension upgrades. The engine doesn't seem too bad for a standard ST215W but we'll see how that goes.
