Whereas larger displacement engine cars like the GT-R, 4th gear is fine for this dyno. With that being said, he did mention it would be spooling in the high 3000ís rpm range in 4th. Low 4000ís in 3rd. So Iíll prolly get a dyno appt at Prime Motoring or IAG when all is said and done just to cross reference what 4th gearís dynograph looks like.

(I keep forgetting all these dynographs Iím comparing are 4th gear pulls)
Oh I just realized you're still dyno tuning

My car wouldn't make full boost until 4500 RPMs when dyno tuning, but the dyno I was using was a Dynomite and "supposedly" loads the cars weird

Do Prime Motoring so I can see the video of the pulls on their IG page (I'm sure with your permission they will upload it).

That sounds like how Vince described the dyno they have.

Whelp, the car is tuned, but under full boost in Sport Sharp, the power kicks out at around 5200 rpms. Troubleshooting with COBB remotely, they think the long intake coupler might be collapsing under full boost. So R/T Tuning is going to shorten the intake. Good news is I just heard from RHDJapan and the Kansai Service air box/air duct has been picked up by FedEx and is scheduled for 2-Day shipping from Japan. So I should have that by early next week and we can utilize that airbox and air duct when modifying the intake tube which was my plan for the future. Glad itís happening sooner than later.

Vince ironed out the cold start and hot start issues to ensure daily drivability. So, one more week should wrap this up. Thank you all for your patience, itís not fun not having my car. But I keep telling myself itíll all be worth it in the end.

Thank you! I'll keep you guys posted with the dyno plans.

Thanks man! Still got your narrowbody?


UPDATE:
Kansai Service intake air box/air duct arrived today! As soon as it was delivered, I drove it up to R/T Tuning so they would have it for whenever they can start working on the new intake tube. Here is a few pics from RHD Japan website so you guys can have an idea of what it looks like:






This thing was so well packaged. And arrived only 32 days after I placed my order (they are made to order).

And here is what it looks like on a similar rotated setup:


I reached out to SG Paintworx for an update on the Password JDM parts. They will be ready to pick up on Monday. Here is some sneak peeks of those:

Whelp, it would not be my build if things did not go as planned. Reached out to SG Paintworx this morning to ask when I could pick up the Password JDM parts. He told me he was busy in the morning and he would text me when I could swing by. He still had to put the Password JDM badges back on the parts. No text. Whomp whomp.

Mondays are my only day off during the week so looks like it will have to be next Monday then.
I ran over to Subaru and picked up two new push clips for the intake air duct. Dropped them off to R/T Tuning to use on the Kansai Service airbox/air duct. And I got to see the Grillecraft hood scoop insert in person. I definitely do not mind it. Looks clean. But I went with it for the functional aspect of keeping the TMIC clean and free from rock chips. For anyone else looking for this specific piece, they no longer sell it on their website but instead only on eBay.

I've looked a few times but came up empty. I assumed that was because they were all sold out, but I could be wrong...

Sorry guys, I just looked at my purchase history and it is not allowing me to click on the item anymore. Just view similar. I am assuming that means they are currently sold out. I purchased it back in May.

Erik from R/T Tuning took my car home over the weekend before last to diagnose any drivability issues. He took it to Cars & Coffee at Turn14 on the 24th of October. Here are some shots from the event:

Every photo you post makes me reconsider my Varis (style) wing, looking good as usual! I might have to go back to OEM at some point.

I appreciate the kind words. I really did luck out finding this thing completely stock in 2016. Definitely want to respray the front bumper at some point and do a clear bra to prevent future rock chips. But everything else is in really great condition.

Thank you! I love the OEM wing. Only wing I like more is the Duraflex GT concept spoiler, but I have read fitment is trash. So I would hate to go from a perfectly fitting OEM wing to an aftermarket one that clearly has fitment issues. But it does look nice.

Thanks Bill! Quality of parts really makes a big difference in how everything flows. Very happy with where the build currently sits.

Thank you man! Iím so stoked on the intake airbox and duct. Itís gonna go so well with the Password JDM parts. Much better than the fender mounted CAI we originally had, in my opinion.

And good news! Iíll be picking up the Password JDM parts (battery cover, fuse box cover and power steering/abs cover) from the body shop on this coming Monday. To recap, the clear coat had pin holes all throughout it. So I had the clear coat redone. SG Paintworx cleared them 4 times. They should look pretty cherry.

Password JDM parts are back from the body shop. The clear coat came out amazing. Only catch is it need 4-6 weeks to cure. Once I get my car back Iím going to throw them on just to snap some pics and take them back off to cure.

I am! Brakes are next on the list. Once I get my car back. Lol. Prolly going to wait until Black Friday sales to see if thereís any type of discount for what Iím planning to order. After brakes, I plan to do a fair amount of Cusco chassis bracing.

The brake kits I want to order come with calipers, pads, rotors and lines. Iíll just have to see about dust shields. And theyíll be custom order for the specific color combination I want.
