Very very impressive. Met Steve for the first time today to do a quick check of my car on the dyno and for me to see how he works and what he can do.

Well, its kind of sad when I say that I havent been as impressed as when I last saw the tweenster mapping. B****y friendly bloke, takes time to explain things to you, honest advice and a guru on the dyno by all measures.

Really glad to have found him and cant recommend him enough.

455 @ 1bar (8900rpm) NO REV LIMITER ON THE VXROM!!! ---- 4 foot:flame: to boot :)

however that was with the controller turned off and on wastegate spring only.

Turns out the car also has 2530s not 2510s and 600cc not 550cc..

next stop 500 torques (well the aim) via "The Teacher" with the Nistune, cant wait.... anyone got a spare R32 ECU banging about?

I was admiring your car on the wall at Hayes today mate.

We should have a Skyline sesh down there, plenty of room and I know Steve would love the pictures and vids.

Absolute legend... mapped my car last night with the Nistune... what a transformation.

I think... (not so good with these graphs) we were at 450ft lbs of torques (4500rpm) and 507hp (7100rpm) when the poor old mines fuel pump came to the limits of its talent. I think 2250lbs of tractive effort was cool too :)

Considering how quickly and cleanly the car revs now I am amazingly happy with the result. Plenty of flames on the dyno... I am told pictures and video will follow in time.

This guy really is a legend... cannot recommend him enough. Please PM me for any more details and recommendations.

People in the GTR community need to start using this guy. When Rob passed I genuinly found myself wondering who the hell is going to look after my GTR... who the hell is going to be as clever and as friendly and as honest...

I found the guy.

Its not a they, its a him... Steve from FC Tuning. At the moment he is mainly working out of Hayes Engineering in Dartford... so right near you mate. Give him a call for pricing... NISTUNE is the way forward.

Sounds good mate. Thats good power from only 1 bar too!

I take it the Nistune thing is some sort of ECU.

I'll look into it

not sure mate to be honest... The head is brand new and there is blue gasket sealant around the sump... nissan gasket sealant is orange I think so it safe to say it's come off for something. I would also expect the engine serial number to be much lower as my chassis was made in Feb 1989 and is one of the first 1300.

Please please let ne know when you are going for a power check or a nistune... Would love to see R32 mk1 again....

What sort of spec is your motor? Internal wise?

sell that power fc and spend the money on nistune and Steve mapping it. You don't need the power fc and the factory ecu can do everything you need.
