    Cool nice work, the bit you made up looks neat as.
  2. Matts Sr20de Ke25

    I just found someone linked this thread, so i read through it like i was reading it for the first time, brings back memorys! it stops 8 years ago so some update. On the 5k efi thing the old microtech screwdriver computer was never the problem, it ran well for days and them suddenly ran like rubbish. I ended up ditching the efi because i needed the car to drive. I found out years later it was just the fuel pump relay had died, i went to use it for something else and it didn't work, how i didn't find that at the time beats me. I never did put an sr20 in it, i no longer needed the car for transport so it went into storage in the back of the shed for 4ish years with no engine or gearbox in it. About 3 or 4 years ago i needed a cheap to run car as my supercharged pajero is pretty thirsty, the local project i was working on was about 45mins away and i had to carry no tools. so i pulled the ke25 out of the shed, i bought a 4k engine and 5speed off a forum member and it has been my daily driver ever since, for the duration of that project the car was crazy economical, i would drive 1 1/2 hrs a day and fill the car up (30ish litres) just under once a foughtnight. Recently it doesn't run so well, needs basic maintainence, it may go back into the shed soon though as i will need a van for work soon. Here is a pic i just took off it sitting out the front, lawn needs a mow!

    Ah ok fair enough, i would look at modding the sump if possible, its usually the easier way to go. Post some pics up if you like

    What engine?

    Thanks mate! I have no doubt at all that a car as light as yours could run a 10sec pass on the 205s with the right setup. They last a long time on light cars too, i have been using the same pair all of these years.
  6. Matts Ke30......sr20det

    I am really happy with the setup, nothing hektic about the drive at all. Tyre is a 225/50/15 drag radial bfg. A 24" tire. I'm really suprised how well they are hooking so will make it my goal to run a 9 on this tyre before i inevitably go to a 26" tyre. Previously i was using a 205/50/15 drag radial mt 23.5" tyre was quite amazed how well they hooked as well for such a small tyre.

    Working towards what i need for tech, and some added things i would like to do. I've just ordered some cheap ally tanks off ebay to modify, going to 1.5l oil catch can, and a 2l water overflow. I'm going to add a gearbox puke tank as well but can't find a shape i like, or a price i like so will probably make that one from scratch. Also been shopping for a c4 scatter shield, the problem is i don't really want to pay for one then find out it doesn't suit my tunnel and have to cut it up. my cable pull faces up on the gearbox so may have to change that as well.

    I bought mine off eBay was $80 including delivery, couldn't be happier with it. Was a few years back so not sure who the seller was.

    That's really neat, some short little leads.
  10. Will 13x7 0 offset fit Ke25

    They will fit, would need a little bit of tyre stretch and yes ideally the guards would need to be rolled if you want to lower it.

    Its good after the initial launch it doesn't stay up like that for a long time, it goes really straight so a very easy drive at this stage. I will try to get hold of some video it looks tame i just hope that continues as i put a bit of extra power into it.
  13. Matts Ke30......sr20det

    I'm amazed how just that alone made such a massive difference. My handling before this was a bit as you described a bit jumpy really, i didn't realize how bad it was until i did this change. Parachute is 140mph+ so i can avoid that but trans sheild, cage tech, 5pt harness and a few other things have to happen now. Too much $$$ for me atm so it wont be for awhile.

    10.2 @ 128 1.45 60ft. Best 60ft of 1.42 We set up the Caltacs when we got there with me in the car, didn't have to touch them the car went dead straight and launched hard all night. It unsetttled a few times when i hit third so had to get off it, thinking i need a decent size water catch can. Did 5 runs 4 of them were 10s. Need to get all ihra teched now, add a bit of boost and run a 9

    Been a long time since i posted in this thread. Converter is working really well, my logs show around 1000rpm drop on the shift at 8k so the converter is perfect. I'm Heading to the drags tomorrow, doing a private session from 230 then the race ya mate at 430. I have been down there twice in the last few months but had some issues to sort out. Boost control, timing, bad starts and a lack of traction. Even a flat battery. I have done a lot of learning on the traction issue, one of the key things is to have a minimum of 5" of uptravel in the front. My car had 50mm at best. So i have changed things around, I'm a heap closer to standard ke30 struts now, the car drives and handles a heap better, and has over 6" of uptravel at the wheel. The result for traction has been a big improvement. In the same situation where it would spin before, it now hooks really well. Last time i was racing i had the transbrake working but no 2 step so a decent launch was impossible, as without a constant Rev it would either bog down or kill the tyres. 2 step now works a treat, will start around 4500 and go up from there. I run a 225 50 15 drag radial on the rear of this car everywhere i go, it's a 24" tyre, the next step up from there is a 26" and there is nothing in between. I'm hoping the tyre hooks tomorrow but have my doubts.
