    Nice job Andrew, you will need to strengthen the intercooler end tank they have been known to bow under stock boost pressure.

    Yes but not the same dyno. I will not have a lot more power but may use an nGauge for a 1/4 mile run daily and have a valet program/tune after what happened in pitt st sydney valet hammered it caught on my cam. It has also has a low temp low rpm and low neutral limit but even with edi the ngauge sounds like a very smart move.

    Car covers, I was window shopping W1's and one for sale is inside an inflatable car cacoon, see through with a pvc type frame has anyone got one or seen one in use, they look like a great idea if you don't own a cat!

    Cheers a good idea.
    A good night at the motorplex and great to see an audi V10 and a merc AMG GTs 2 door rare car seemed to be testing to half track last run did 202 at 11.4.
    Me 199.5 199.7 just missed the 200
    Time as usual first run did 11.8 tyres at 35 psi (22 seems to do nothing someone tonight said you will spin them on the rims.
    So nGauge and MT's are next I'm a sunday racer and don't want 600kws to try and hit 200 or 11 seconds. Hope i can buy and fit 275 18 45's may need to grind the fuel filler bolt. I think 275x45x18 is the same diameter as 295 20 35 i run now.
    I had the fans on fast at idle and yes the blower was ice cold when I completed each run. I was getting some serious pickup in the second half of the track.

    I'm having fun at the Perth Motorplex, but will not return until I have 18 x 275 x 45s on the rear, they are out of stock Australia wide, and once they are in, I should have a few tunes in an nGauge, as the fans on full are a tad noisy for me.

    I would like to know what a stock GTS/GTSR would run on a good track with MT 18 275 45s.

    I can't wait to see what a 530 fwkw LSA will run with good tyres. I think it will be very good value for money $2k for a nice start and 0.5 second off, I can only guess, as for top speed now at 199.7.

    Thanks that's a good offer I jumped in fast though and ordered both 18's and an nGauge. I don't plan to do any more mods
    after that, and I should see 205 and I hope 11.49's.

    Pretty sure Kirk went 11.99 at 118 stock with radials.
