    It used to be black....

    I have pics of it at my first tech day almost 2 years ago, and at that time it was black..:) I guess he hasnt updated his profile...

    Come off it John

    the dyno day was organized for members, by members, about the only person who seems to care about discrediting certain ECU manufactureres is you. People wanted to have a good time and get as many cars on the dyno as possible, your little personal war did not come into it, to say that there were no ECU comparisons for fear of results is ridiculous and people are getting tired of hearing about it.

    No just amazed at how critical some are to certain things and believe without proof of other items or methods ideas etc. I was also questioning the intake temps being a lot lower than ambient. They must not have put the sensor in the intake and must have had allot of air flow over it and not correct reading. I guess I am like others if I experience and or know certain things I will give advice or challenge things. Some do without knowing what they are talking about. I guess if not damaging to person or car then OK, but I have a prob with some of this. Then there are others on the forum that dont always go with the flow, which I guess is me.
    This is what forum is about within reason and not slandering or getting personal unlike others.

    just curious....

    how would the amb temps and inlet temps affect the dyno reading? I'm still learning about dyno's and any info I can get I cherish..:)

    They stuff up the calculations of the final reading. I am pretty

    confident about where he places the probe as I got almost the exact same reading on a totally different dyno both on shootout mode. Also, just because the ambient temp is 20 degrees, it would make sense that if their is air forced onto the front of the car whether it be from a dyno fan or from driving at high speeds, the temperature will be lower than a probe sitting in the room. Proof of this is simple.. why does your car heat up when its not moving? If the temperature didn't drop from the air hitting your radiator then the cars temperature wouldn't go up at all. If anything sometimes i think the UAS readings are high? I believe MI's dyno is pretty much spot on and sometimes conservative. Arthur does know what hes doing to be able to tune his old car 'R33 GTST' to ~280rwkw on pretty much stock internals and basic slap on mods. Something like 90 hours in total was spent tuning and tweaking that car and yes i saw it to believe it before he sold it.

    The UAS dyno is very similar to the one I use here

    in the ACT

    Great write-up Mark, but shouldn't this be posted in Events?

    I cant beleive he sold it!!

    I spoke to him about it, but in the end I think it just got too much for him. Insurance was riduculous and so were the running costs. Good luck to the guy out there driving an R33 Gts-25t, whith chamelion (spelling??) paint and 280rwkw's..:)

    Tell me about it, i believe he became way to

    paranoid every time he drove it fearing a defect. I don't blame him. I know what it's like to drive and be paranoid ALL the time, which is another reason why I hardly drive my car out anymore compared to when i first bought it. As paranoid as I am these days due to the power restrictions I still try to tell myself to 'care' about it and still wouldn't be able to part with the Z !!!!!

    BigCol That's what she said...


    Just about every upcoming event I can think of is posted in the Events forum, and then sometime after the event has occurred someone posts in the Zed Related forum about how the day went. This is the way it is for the majority of events that occur, and I agree 100% with the way this works.

    Recent examples include this one, another one, this one too, and don't forget this one.

    Chili, don't get me wrong I really do appreciate your style of humour (well 95% of it), but it seems you've become a little bent out of shape over recent events here, and I really wish you'd go back to being the 'fun' Chili you were back when I first joined in late 2001.

    Please don't take this as any kind of attack, as it most certainly is not. Neither do I wish to start a VTD war or public slanging match with you - I have too much respect for your Zed knowledge and willingness to help others. I'm simply trying to point out the inconsistancy of your post suggesting that Mark has posted this in the wrong forum versus your previous actions. And after all, it is only my opinion...

    Hey Col, if you really appreciate my kind of humour....>>>

    How come you missed the point of this example?
    Seems everybody is keen to take offense at every opportunity, of late.

    I luv you too:LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::embarrassed::embarrassed::zlove:

    No it shouldn't......>>

    The events forum is for planning events. All threads are deleted once the event has occured and the reason this is done is so we have a dedicated forum for what events are coming.

    How did it do that

    As in crack a piston or is it something else?

    So what was the point of bringing boost so

    dangerously high if you won't use it :wacko:

    Not sure at the moment......>>

    We wont know till we get it apart, but it is down on compression in one cylinder and was pressurising the sump to the point that it was pumping oil out the dipstick on the dyno, so something isn't right.

    Do you have a catch can Peter? If they are setup

    in a certain way it can cause this to happen. Happens to a lot of SR20's. Sorry to hear about the engine! Will be good to see what you decide to throw in while everythings apart :p
  19. WYKKED

    WYKKED <b><font color=red>2 Much Trouble</font></b>

    Nope, dont have a catch can.....>>

    Although I know what you mean about it being a problem on some SR20 cars. There was a 200SX at the last sandown day with exactly that problem.
