    Quality of AE86s at the show looks excellent. Nice pics. One day i will have me a levin notch back like that red one. Something cool about that shape.

    Had a great Sunday morning at the 7 of Clubs all Japanese Classic show and Shine event. Unlike last year the AE86 was well represented, with stock ADM, Stock JDM, ADM to JDM, UK Spec and modified versions, mine with the 2az and another with a rotary. Notches and hatches, Levins and Truenos. The black ae86 called Loco86, owned by a bloke called Mitch, won the peoples choice (I voted for him too). Great dude with an immaculate adm to jdm conversion. Built by him and his dad.

    So about time I did an update.... The Tuesday dyno session didn't go quite as planned. Andy was chasing an ignition breakdown on #4. Just intermittent spark. It was running on 3 a bit when I drove it down to him but I thought it was just the bad tune. I popped into the workshop at about 430pm (expected to have it back by then) and he seemed a little frustrated. We quickly deduced it wasn't a coil issue, but wiring. Then I realised what the problem would be... I crappy Jaycar electrical connector. Had it swapped out by Thursday night with a new Narva one and all was good. Took it back to him on Friday morning (he said I could just leave it there for a week while in Burnie for work) via town for a meeting and realised he had knocked the overall fuel cut up to 50%. When I realised this I went in and offered to him that I would manually drop all the values by half to save him time... and me money. Week went by, and I hadn't got around to doing anything but I did realise it could be a simple process. When I converted to sequentially injection/CAS and quad coils I had to manually double all of the fuel map values as it went from dual bank injection to sequential. IE I had a fuel map on file that would be close enough for a starting point. So reinstated the old map (Andy's last tune with a couple of little tweaks by me) and changed the appropriate settings back over to dual pulse/sequential. Started with no throttle and idled (I don't have an idle solenoid) and drove rather well! So then took it back to him straight after. In the week it took me to sort it, he'd taken lots of dyno bookings and the next opportunity he'll have to do it will be Friday 1st of March. Meh oh well, another 2 weeks to wait. So that's where I'm at.

    LS1 could are so easy to mount anywhere when you flip them up on their sides hey!

    " I just tested it and got 14.1 km per litre (7 litres per 100klm). " Ouch- That's what the 4AGE returns running the 500km up to the Woolshed and back.. and you've got a lot more motor there!

    I dont see where right now, its about where I expected it. I can still tidy up the tune and then go to closed loop fuel control, that will trim it as lean as possible. Off to All Japanese Classic Show and Shine at Earnshaw Road, Banyo today. Swamp garage Steven is on the way to convoy over.

    That is some great economy. Do you think there is any more you can get from her? Thanks for converting it to litres/100.

    The Rwd 2Az-Fe Thread.

    I just conducted some real world economy tests. Around town, driving like on a dyno to get logs, I achieved 10.25km per litre (9.75 litres per 100 km). The previous average was 9.25 km/litre (10.8 l per 100km). Highway. Previous best was 12.25 klm/litre (8.16 litres per 100klm). I just tested it and got 14.1 km per litre (7 litres per 100klm). 10.8 percent better around town. 15.1 percent better on highway. Finally getting the economy I expected to from this car. Its comparing favourably with the Camry the engine comes from, it gets about 14l per 100 in town, and about 7.5 litres per 100 highway.
  14. Hi Looking for somebody making reproduction (or have a set for sale) of the original SR5 fender flares. The original ones like the ones you see in the pic below. Cheers J

    Had another thought, I know I set the fuel pressure high enough when I got the car running, I wonder if the retarded cunt that dynoed the car and didnt even change any timing, Gary Coombes, who left it really over advanced, might have knocked back the fuel pressure when the car was in his hands? I cant imagine a reg adjusting itself down.

    Thanks Graeme, Im pretty excited to hit the highway and see what it will do.

    I do once ive found a happy place with the tune, I switch it over to closed loop, and it goes fine, but I hadnt really tested the difference in economy if any.

    Altezzaclub she ain't in any condition to drive as she just stalls out within a min. After work I should look at the timing and see if I can get her running long enough to do that test ( have been real lazy lately). Would rather a headgasket over a burnt valve or potential rebuild. If she is rooted it's gonna be my fault for buying an engine without seeing it run first and taking the fellas word haha.

    Just for fun... before you drive it anywhere, take off the radiator cap and fill the rad to the brim. Leave the cap off, start it up and idle it to see if water gets pushed out by bubbles before the thermostat opens after about 5-10minutes. Occasionally #4 head gasket goes, but if not then maybe a valve is burnt. The compression gauge will show a burnt valve, but not a head gasket blown.

    Easy Performance Improvments

    Thanks for that.... Someone has a full set of 4A-F cams, actually a full head, they could send me... But, considering the cost of a pro regrind, it makes little sense to 'fiddle around' without doing a Whole Head 'flow n fettle' job. I'm not going there. I'm concentrating on getting the best out of the Aisan, redoing the vac hosing + checking the dizzy works OK. 4A-F

    Most definitely is possible and I'd say almost expected. You have pulled a good amount out of the map and it's atomizing better, that will always change economy for the better. Do you run lean cruise?

    The Rwd 2Az-Fe Thread.

    I was reading those fuel consumption values and thought...meehh...not so good until I realised it was klm per litre. Its a bit early in the day. So I converted it. Freakin awesome for something that has got a stack of poke. Impressive and so pretty.

    No I meant KPA. I need minimum 50 psi at idle. I had 43. I'm running about 55 now constant with no vac reference except the atmosphere. Manual says 50 -57psi from memory. I thought I had it right. I just hadn't checked it since I set it up originally. Don't know if I had a poor setting from the outset, if I just set it low and got my kpa conversion wrong the first time around. Or possibly the reg doesn't work that well its just the usual cheap Tomei one that cost about 70 bucks. Nothing special. Ill have to keep an eye on it. If I do decide to use the vac reference, its no big deal to setup, tuning that out is just gonna be the first couple of rows in the map. Probably fluffing up the fuel a bit considering it will effectively drop the fuel pressure a bit at light load. Economy seems to be good too, maybe best ever. Half tank 230ks, thrashing it around the place trying to get logs to tune from. Used to get about 180 from half a tank in the city and that worked out to 9.25klm per litre. I could do 12 klm/litre on the highway. If I make the most basic of calculations and scale up the economy in tune with the 230 ks half tank, its a factor of 1.27, so is it possible its doing 11.75ks/litre around town now just on this change?

    Little update. Was testing to see if it had spark in all 4 cylinders. 4th is missing but the lead and spark plug is getting spark so a mate is gonna bring home a compression tester from work.
  28. oh what a nissan feeling!

    The Rwd 2Az-Fe Thread.

    Wow taking it that much fuel out is a big deal, nice work will be good to see the results. Do you mean psi for the pressure?

    How To Build A Rally Car

    The big job was fitting a plastic roof to make a glasshouse for growing seedlings- and it even has a wind-up wall! The electricity went off one evening and all the next day, and that's when I discovered there were no lamps or candles at Auburn Vale. What sort of 1920s farmhouse is this?? I dug out a lamp and made sure it worked for next time! I'd moved one of Steve's farm cats down to Auburn Vale and she'd had kittens down there. Now I have them living under the deck outside my room- but that's preferable to what lives IN the room with me! ..and if you're ever taking bets of centipedes versus redbacks, I can give you a clue.. Anyway- back up tomorrow for another hit! Maybe get those struts done AND the gearbox mounts if the MiG is back. No doubt there will be lots to do setting up the inside of the glasshouse too-
