Hey guys and gals,
just completed my last round of mods, well for this year anyway!!!!!!
Some feedback for you. Car has 70000km's. The SAS work was done at the same time
DBA 5000 slotted on the front and 4000 slotted on the rear, Ferodo 2500 pads and s/s lines with motul RBF 600. Back yard
OEM Exedy Clutch, Nismo Flywheel (21lb), s/s clutch line and RBF 600. SAS
Berk HFC's (metal substrate)SAS
HKS Oil Cooler Backyard.
Sparkplugs Backyard (NGK LFR5AIX-11 Iridium)
After bedding in, the brakes feel a lot sweeter, the modulation is what has improved and gives me a much better pedal feel.
OEM Exedy feels great, nothing much to say. Nismo Flywheel, hard to say if it has improved the rev response as SAS did all the work in one hit, but i feel the shifts have become crisper. The car drives really well, and is not any more of a bitch in traffic. Noisy??? When cold you can't hear it, when hot you do notice it below 2000 rpm, above that the exhaust does it's MTV thing so for me it's not a worry. Hopefully the s/s line will eliminate the spongey clutch on hot days as the RBF 600 alone didn't. Maybe some venting in the bonnet........
The HFC's, luurrrrrrrrrrve em!!!! They are a little louder, no rasp. See tune.
I positioned the core in front of the rad instead of the right corner as my car has the twin bi-xenon cleaners/tanks. It gets hot here so it's just an added cooling aid.
(Alan sorry bout the swap, i had just bought all the additional Earls fittings to do the job)
Spark plugs. It's a right of passage spiritual thing to replace your own spark plugs. Phark i hope i don't have to do it again on this car!!!!
The tune yielded some good numbers, Dave said the HFC's necessitated the tune to be re-done. Kw's up from 187 to 189, but torque was up from 360nm to 367nm's.
The car feels good right through the rev range up to 6500rpm . It's even more fun to drive now.
I couldn't up load today so i'll try get the dyno chart up soon.
