    Koyo rad

    Opened but never used as I sold the car Rad and new cap included in the kit, build quality is amazing on these. Drop in replacement for stock radiator Lower coolant temps mean more power! https://www.tarmacsportz.co.uk/catalog/product/view/id/3040/s/koyo-rad-hyper-v-series-scion-13-13-fr-s-2-0l-h4-mt-at/?gclid=CjwKCAjw2dD7BRASEiwAWCtCb_UN7izLi52LNrWokLFaqmT1f7vpDIOKpKmnL0ouFAcrazgm7Iv8eRoCkUEQAvD_BwE £280 Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  6. Rare as and JDM goodness, the nicest steering wheel I have had on a car. Reuses stock air bag. In excellent condition. Only selling as car has been sold. https://www.86worx.com/grazio-flat-bottom-steering-wheel.html?fbclid=IwAR0aN3KS2aYHxwBIK8iZkS4ICCeBuoQNzljmgPCf1wZPvYA9r6F1cvfGGH4 £350 Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Always good to see an update from you. I am running the HKS oil cooler with some of the fog light covers which have a hole to let air in for the cooler. When I was supercharged it was not enough and I saw 115 c at snetertton quite easily. I am no means the fastest driver either. Now with the turbo kit and more power I think I will struggle. My plan was to duct the oil cooler next but I am starting to look at water to oil coolers. Car sounds great in the video and looks a proper piece of kit. Is that the IRP shifter, how have you got on with it, it's something I keep wanting to get for mine but I am worried it's not suitable for a road car Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Improving oil pressure

    I have seen another version of this mod which uses a vtec conversion kit (hondas have the same oil filter thread is seems) then filtered and cooled oil is dropped straight into the mains. I guess this gives two advantages, cooler oil getting to the mains and also a oil pressure/flow bump in theory. See attached pic. I am trying to understand the flow of oil in that area. As I understand it it. When looking at the front of the engine, the oil goes from the front cover into the block then to the right where it feeds the tensioner. From there I assume it goes towards the rear of the engine to feed the mains? My only concern with a mod like this, is affecting flow by causing turbulence. It all depends how the gallery are routed which affects things when you add a second feed like this. Anyone a fluid mechanic?! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Improving oil pressure

    Just seen a post on Facebook regarding a mod to help with oil pressure. See https://m.facebook.com/GPPerformanceEurope/photos/pcb.3003339963095766/3003318503097912/?type=3&source=49 Basically looks like they are tapping into the out feed from the oil cooler sandwich plate, then running a line from there into a separate oil filter then straight into the main oil gallery. They report it increases the pressure by a bar! Just thought I would share the love for fellow FI owners and also be interested in people's opinions on this. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Final thought/question. Did you do anything in regard to the oil temp sensor as it sits right in the oil gally. In theory causing some restriction. I was reading on the yank forum people have relocated them. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Oh while I remember, I had fuel starvation issues with my car when under half a tank after fitting a aftermarket fuel pump. You can mod the pump hanger so the fuel pump sits lower or there is a company which sell a flap which holds more fuel in the built in swirl tank in the pump hanger. Something like this http://www.maddat.com.au/engine/toyota-86-subaru-brz-anti-surge-fuel-flap A few companies make them For reference I was running pilot sports, 255 rear and 235 front. I was running updated injectors, fuel pimp etc when I had the issue. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
