Yeah buddy!!

Picked her up today!! Great results, only a bit more power than mhd Stg 2 + but car feels better, I've got more power throughout the range, less lag and a very comfortable street tune. Also got plugs changed when I was there. Overall chuffed with the end result. Now the decision whether to go e85 or not:

I'll post the dyno graphs to my build thread soon.

Looking forward to getting down to the drags and see what she's capable of!

One step closer to finishing my NBT that yoda installed for me!

It just needed a 'simple quick fix' with tech advice from yoda on FB messenger!



My feeble brain started hurting so I had to leave it until another day when I wasnt so tired and can wrap it up!

(Still got to sort out custom moulding for the NBT touch controller on the centre console trim - I'm hoping to convert a CCC trim to touch)

Not the controller socks, the trim (converting a CCC trim to accommodate a new gen touch style controller)

Changed my halogen angel eyes to led. Took a while as I scrubbed all of the wheel well plastics. We need scrubbing bubbles in Australia. (Toms turbo garage) Torqued the wheels to 88 ft pounds. This is what this website said to do.

Moisturised my seats and steering wheel today. New cabin filter in. She's looking sexy with a recent wash and tyre gel.
My e30 on the other hand took me to work and back for two straight weeks, (800 kms in 2 weeks) despite having no transmission fluid in the reserve and my power steering reserve also was dry causing a knock when steering. Totally forgot to look after her but she's serviced now.. Most reliable car I have owned no doubt. The e30 just keeps running and never dies no matter whats wrong with it lol

Use eagle one. Ive tried them all incl. Meguiars etc. Eagle one is hard to find but long lasting. Autobahn had it last time I checked. It lasts upto two weeks depending on driving. Mothers naturally black tire shine goes for about a week which is my second preference.
