To follow my last post up. The turbo flange on the decat didnt fit. I had to take the grinder to it. Itll be fine but not ideal considering the cost. Not a great fit at the exhaust end either but itll do until its mapped, then I can go back over things. It's also not braced like the OE one...
It arrived 2 days back. Its reasonably well made, quite a lot of rough internal edges needing ground down though. Took 6 weeks to come and the payment process was a bank transfer. It cost £151 inc postage which isnt too bad though. Hopefully have it fitted this week.
Yeah FMIC is fitted and my injectors are away getting cleaned and tested. I was hoping to have a decat/downpipe fitted before the map however Im sceptical if it will even turn up never mind turn up in time.
I've got a project thread in the "Other Marques" section.
TRW Performance in Portugal make downpipes for the clio and twingo tce. I'm still waiting on mine arriving.... if it arrives with no dramas I'll let you know lol.
I'm hoping to have my Twingo mapped at the beginning of feb by EFI. Just sorting a date.
Digging up an old post here. But after speaking to EFI, a FMIC is now on the cards at my end.
Before I go a pull the bumper off, is there enough space to fit a little IC behind the front cross member? Ideally i want it to be as hidden as possible.
Repeating what's been said, seems like ktec have won a watch here!
These pointless regs are only going to put people off. I wonder how a ktec ECU'd car would compare to a OEM one. That could be a funny test to watch!
Of all the models of Skyline, the R32 is my favourite. Such a functional looking car. Been considering one for about 3 years and never had to bottle to go through with it. Been building a friends R33 back up from an engine failure over the last few years, something that was meant to be a forged...
So I've had my 182 for a couple of years now and tbh not too much has went wrong. However a few weeks ago, the battery went flat (battery is 18 months old) and wouldnt start one night. So got the multimeter out and cheked battery voltage (12.50v) but not enough to turn the car over. So i jump...
Christ! You must be strong! (ref title)
Welcome to CS!
From my experience, the 172's are stronger lower in the rev range compared to the 182's. However your plan of a map and airbox should give you a noticable difference (not power but delivery). Martin_172 on here had those mods on a Ph1 172...
