I personally always use slightly higher viscosity full synthetic oil in all my engines.
0W40 or 5W40 full synthetic oil for normal street driving & spirited runs.
10W60 full synthetic oil for track days were the engine sees high loads and high rpms.
My preferred oil brands are Liquimoly, Motul...
sorry to hear of the misfortune. Nonetheless, things could have been worst. All that really matters is that you are safe and sound.
Since you are putting in a new engine, once you disassemble the old engine and find out the damage assessment and the root cause. Let us know what you...
kindly let us know after you drive for 300-500 miles (i hope the ecu adjusts the fuel trims by then), after the intake installation, can you elaborate on the difference in power you feel especially between 3000-5500 rpms.
As well as any other pros or cons you might have noticed.
Thanks for sharing that video.
I really enjoyed watching the video of that very potent car journalist driving the MKV Supra around the Nurburgring at it's full potential. A very capable driver and a track worthy car as a base.
There a number of companies that do offer an upgraded stock turbo as well as a number of other companies that have their complete turbo kits, utilizing either a Borg Warner, a Garret or a Precision Turbocharger.
It all depends on your hp goal and use of the car. Below is list of...
Thanks for the information.
I personally ordered a set of Titan7 TS-5 Wheels in the following size 18x10.7 ET18.
They are square setup primarily for track days. The tires installed on them are Yokohama Advan A052 275/40R18.
Hopefully, i will not have any electronic interference from...
congrats on the wheels and summer tires. You should have better traction now from the summer tires.
can you kindly clarify on the wheel & tire setup you put on the car. Wheel brand, size & width. Tire choice, sizes & width. Thanks.
I can see that you went with a 3-piece wheel design...
Congrats on the new tuning platform switch (EcuTek) & Pure turbo upgrade.
As you said, working on EcuTek for the first time, you get slightly lost. But once you get the hang of it. It becomes self explanatory. Having worked on EcuTek, with a few R35 GTR's. It did not take long before i...
Great numbers especially for 93 MON (98 RON) pump gas.
Can't wait to see what it will put down once the ECUTEK mapping parameters are all figured out.
Nice to know that the 2nd iteration of the modified turbo is doing great.
All the best and stay safe.
I am surprised why CSF did not take full advantage of the height available. I do know that their heat exchanger is thicker and made with their patented (B-Tube) technology. Wouldn't it possibly perform even better if they have utilized the whole height available, since the OEM is taller in...
Spending so much time looking around for power enhancing bolt on parts. I came to notice that the Injen SES intercooler pipes (AKA charge pipes/ boost pipes) are made of complete 2.75” lightweight T6-6061 aluminum piping.
That to me, seems to be of a better design than other brands...
Thank you for the information regarding the Verus Engineering products/ packages. I for one was very eager to get information.
That makes things very interesting and the cons would be a lighter wallet for myself very soon.:)
