Put a bit more boost in it.
Did some 20 psi and logs were fine.

Tried 23psi and got a misfire on the same cylinder 3 times.

Ordered precision coils. I wanted prp r35 coils but its not available yet.

At 23 psi boost, I would have thought you would need some better fuel (some E85) or methanol.

Ive been running e85 for a while. Also spraying 1 300cc water meth nozzle.

Plenty of octane and very nice intake temps, well nice for 33degree ambients anyway.

Fair enough. Have you entered the Red Centre Nationals? It should go well with the boost up and sticky tyres.

No I havent entered. Trying to get the car down there the guy know from burnouts sold his truck trailer. It is 1400km away.

Not sure If I will even go. The flights were $216 eachway 2 weeks ago now they are $1086. I was going to tow it down on Friday until i realised the flight prices jumped.

Roll racing was announced a few days ago and is on the same wknd in Darwin.

With flights at that price, it sounds like roll racing at Darwin is the way to go.

Deatschwerks pump turned up today.

Its about half the size of the a Ti pump range.

It doesnt flow much but its only needed to put fuel in a surge tank.

Max amps it will or can draw is 6.
Should stat 3-5 amps 90% of the time so it will give me some battery head room to keep my 2 ti274 pumps and meth pump going.

Cars booked in for air bag tomorrow.
Its been pulled out for a few months so it will be good to get rid of those error lights.

Im pretty worried as they are going to be difficult to deal with.
First of all they wont know how to start it and they will be thinking wtf is this gear stick???

Only comment I got was that it was low. Its not even low.
The rear is about 30mm higher than stock. Front is at stock height.

Hey Brule, Are you running your lift pump off the EKP or a seperate relay? I'd be interested to know how you've got the 2 ti274's setup too.....?

Lift pump of ekp.

2 ti274 pumps triggered off lift pump run through there own relay.
I just pull a fuse out and use 1 pump. Then when I need 2 I put the 2nd fuse in.

They run 100% duty all the time.

If coils turn up Friday Im driving bmw to Alice and going for 10s then drive back is the goal.

Radium install instructions are very detailed. They are fool proof.

These rims look great Brule. They will sit out 5 mm further than mine towards the guard which may require a little rolling but hopefully not.
