Didn't realise its been almost a year since the last update
Not much is new tbh, got around to re-tuning the car with some upgrades.
Ditched the stock turbo finally and went with a Mamba unit, a GTX billet wheel TD05-18G 8cm
While I was at it I upgraded the MAF sensor from the stock unit to a HPX N1 from Nistune, and had it installed blow through style in the cold side intercooler piping.
Got it retuned at Garage 101, and was pretty stoked with the results.
Made 311.3rwhp at about 17psi, still internal gate and with the Turbosmart boost tee. That's going to have to change in the future as boost was fluctuating quite a bit and doesn't hold till redline. Next round will probably involve electronic boost control and external gate, in which case I'll probably go high mount manifold, or maybe just a stiffer actuator spring in the mean time.
Also picked up a set of faded Kouki tail lights, and set about trying to freshen them up. Used VHT gloss black vinyl dye on the faded areas then hit it with a few coats of Concept Paints "2K" pressure pack clear coat. Have had previous success with re-spraying the mirrors with this stuff and came out pretty good here.
