  1. ACT workshops, tuners, paint n panel, rego, etc

    Anyone got any recommendations on somewhere/someone to my get my exhaust built for my 2J FD RX7? I already have a high flow cat and rear muffler just need someone to fab up a dump pipe and the rest of the exhaust. Leaning towards trying to find someone who does good stuff from home as they usually take a bit more care. Thanks
  2. Twin Turbo boost controller

    So the boost control unit is called a "BCU+"....? It's got a pretty thick booklet with lots of features. It has a page for twin turbo boost control but it appears to be parallel twin setup not sequential. I'm guessing that adding in another solenoid or using a t-piece would just be a try and see which works? I thought if I added another solenoid in and spliced the wires off the existing one in the system that it should send the signal to open/close the solenoid to both? Any ideas?
  3. Twin Turbo boost controller

    Hey everyone, Just need a little help with a boost controller. I have an opportunity to grab myself an electronic boost controller for free (not sure on brand) but hey its free! Those of you that know and now those that didn't, I will be running a 2JZGTE in my car with the standard sequential twins. I have been looking online and found that a twin solenoid boost controller is required to run the twins properly. My question is: If I take possession of said electronic boost controller, would it be possible to run a second solenoid so that I can control both turbos properly? If so, has anyone done it on here, maybe show me how they set it up? Maybe someone has a twin solenoid controller that they could show me the setup diagram or something similar?? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers, Kurt
  4. Wheels, Tyres and suspension needed

    Just a heads up, if you ever need genuine nissan parts, especially import parts, give me a yell, I work at Nissan and can give you a good price!
  5. Wheels, Tyres and suspension needed

    Going 2inches bigger on wheel size is fine but the tyre profile will need to be lower to keep the same rolling diameter. Staggered fitment is okay as long as the track is no more than 15mm bigger than what is stated on the tyre placard. ( I have read through VSB 14 many times and have spent much time with the boys at dickson getting the rules straight) Choice of tyres is a little bit of a personal thing and a bit of a budget thing, I have found through personal experience that Federals have brilliant dry grip but got a bit slippery in the wet. I haven't tried many of the more expensive brands but I do currently run Bridgestone Potenza RE002s on my RX7, great dry grip and equally great wet grip, also not too bad on price either. I also previously ran these on my evo with great success (AWD helped wet weather grip a little in the evo) The boys are on the money for tyre prices, I had 17s on the evo, got 16s on the RX7, same brand and model tyre, 17s were cheaper! I guess there is just more cars running 17s now. Just my 2c, Hope it helps a little.
