    Well, almost lost the car today. The cam cover breathers were open to atmosphere, which ive never had an issue with before. My cousin had taken the car for a high boost run and felt it missfire, he pulled up, opened the bonnet and found fire coming out of the cam cover which he managed to put out. Coilpack #2 looks like it failed and may have arc'd causing the whole thing to catch fire.

    Cam cover is supposed to be routed to the catch can but the fitting had broken off. Luckily the car is still here but i'll be fixing thar issue asap before any further high power runs are made.

    Fark, near miss! Glad it, and everyone, was ok and it's repairable!

    He was lucky to catch it on time, and luckily its all fairly easy to repair.

    So i've sent down

    3 working coils
    New timing cover
    New S2 PTU from RGS

    Found several posts on facebook of coilpack fires and they all seem to be PTU related, my S2 ptu was done by the previous owner so over 15 years ago .

    Just ordered a pair of these PSR drag radials as i dont want to have to roll around the 15" ET streets if i want any traction. They'll go on my 18x9.5 Work XT7s

    Tyres arrived, car should be back to me by next week if all goes well. I may take it to the drags in the next few months depending on my work schedule.

    Doubt anyone has used these on a zed yet, they are popular with the skyline crowd though and i've only heard good things about them.

    So, had a look at the stock turbos today and the answer as to why it smoked and lost a whole heap of power is very obvious . Both turbos look like they've inhaled something and the compressor wheels are annihalated.

    And a fair bit of oil in one of the old side mounts 20240713_135801.jpg

    Hahaha well that answers a lot.
