Re: pop goes the motor

Nice upgrades. With 14psi you should have around 260kw at the wheels?

Re: skc mobile gets supercharged

Finally got all the parts to upgrade the ignition. The plan is to relocate the LS coils to the chassis rail. Hopefully, it will be completed within the next couple of weeks.

Re: Oil temperature

I will start with blocking off one oil cooler and see how it reacts. The radiator fan has a lot of power and is very effective in lowering the temps as well. However, the ultimate test will be at the track with the supercharger running

Re: Oil temperature

I have upgraded to RX8 performance oil coolers and radiator. The ambient temps in Brisbane is around 25 degrees and my oil temp is around 65 to 70 which is low as it should be around 80.

Any suggestions to raise the temps. i was thinking of blocking off one of the radiators.

Re: skc mobile gets supercharged

Just over 500km and all going well. The vacuum was initially low however, as the seals bed in its getting stronger. Cant wait to get rid of the rev limiter and enjoy the exhaust noise.

Also ordered a low km series 2 fuel tank and fuel assembly and 200cell cat.

Re: Oil turned to rubber in sump

Wow, I used penrite synthetic for over 5 years without issues. Although I noticed some carbon deposits on the rotor. I have installed SOHN so carbon build up willbe reduced.

The sludge may be a result of the E85. Interested to see the cause
