The breather fittings I tapped into the covers. Bought a tap specially for An-10 (which has come in handy for a few things now) and just screwed the fittings in place. Far more elegant than bonding/welding etc.

Im SO glad I went with 25 covers....makes me wonder why Nissan chose to design the 26 covers the way they did....its a poorer design IMHO.

sounds like a plan. Found a set on EBAY for 30, and some push in fittings.

Whats the baffle setup like on the 25 covers?
Cant remember 100% TBH. I seem to recall just ditching them!

Whens it going to see the light of day?
if i could get £1 for every time i've been asked that, id be rich :chuckle:

Bottom line is...as soon as i get the cash together to buy, fit and map a Syvecs S8!!! (probably on the track by late spring i reckon)

hehe, thats on our list!

Nitrons
Dry Sump
Syvecs

Problem being the Impreza is 'needing' all that too (and a new engine) :(

Its never ending! Do you have a price from Paul at ZEN? He gave us a good price for an S6 but we've not got round to looking into it yet.
No, not yet. Will contact him (as well as my other 'possibles' for installation/mapping and see how I get on. Love the S6, but I think an S8 will suit the ultimate spec of the car better..

Depands what you want from your Syvecs to what model you have fitted;

the S6 is limited to 1 knock sensor and 1 lambda sensor input and is also limited to I/O ( inputs/outputs) which will hold you back with regards data logging other inputs other than oil pressure/oil temperature/fuel pressure+ 1 other items.

Do you guys want to run traction control as well if so and you want to go over to a Crank sensor 36-1/phase sensor then you really need to go over to the S8 Syvecs Model as running traction control on a S6 takes up a couple of the Inputs that we normally use for input data-logging.

We have been using a S6 on our 350Z development car for a few months now ( car is only N/A) but the traction control is awesome,data-logging is very good as well , multi calibrations for both Traction and Engine is good as well.

With regards crank trigger set up if your wanting to make big BHP i would say go over to 36-1(36-2) set up but if it is a road car the CAS should work okay.

Any more questions ask away.

Hey Mark, you're one of the 'possibles' I was going to contact :chuckle:. Been in contact with Ryan via Syvecs site about all this and it was primarily the issue with number of inputs and the knock control that made me decide S8 was the way forward. Pat (at Syvecs) did mention they have an S6 expansion module available to extend the number of inputs but I really think S8 is the way forward for me TBH. AM I right in thinking that the S8 can directly drive the coilpacks and injectors without ignitor (coils) and resistor pack (inj)??

For crank position sensing I am definitely going to move to a crank trigger and am waiting on Andy (AMT) to sort out his kit based on the Ross damper I will be using. As for traction control, its something I would like to explore but perhaps not initially until I have had the car out a few times and become familiar with the handling again. I am intending to fit signal conditioners to all 4 wheel sensors so I can feed them into the ECU. Obviously this is essential for traction control so the hardware will already be in place!

Seeing as you have brought it up could you quote me for an S8, installed and mapped. I have added some extra sensors (which have been fitted and have the correct connectors) that I would need connected to the ECU also...nothing crazy. An approximate figure would be great :thumbsup:

TT,

send me a email with what parts you have already;

Re the Traction , your only need 2 signal convertors as the S8 has 4 uni-polar inputs but your need 2 of these to run the crank trigger/phase sensor.

Thanks

You won't need any with the s8 bud, it has 16 fully configurable inputs for setting as bipolar, unipolar, voltage and thermistor

Ahhh, so i can plug the unfiltered ABS ring outputs to the S8 and configure them?

Scott, yes sorry had my S6 head on, looking at the S8 wiring diagram think we can even log if you turn the indicators on.

Working on the quote for you.

Just an observation. But would the return to tank not be better being lower down than from right out the top of the swirl pot.


Id have the feeds from pumps going in top fittings and return from rail and return to tak out the side fittings. To stop the swirl pot becoming to presurised


I could be completly wrong

Always return out of the top of the swirl pot to the main tank as this will remove the air from the swirl pot.

And it doesn't matter where the pipes are fitted the pressure is dictated by the supplying pump , the return pipe size and the amount of fuel returned from the fuel rail.

You find your see most pressure in the swirl pot when idling due to the amount of fuel being returned.

Well, been getting a few more parts together to finish off this bleedin fuel system once and for all...
Now have the fuel cooling matrix (a 9 row oil cooler)


AN-10 (5/8") aluminium hardline and fittings


AN-10 90deg bulkhead fitting, AN-10 push-on hose and fittings.

Also got some 76mm neoprene hose with a spun aluminium intake


to feed air through a rectangular vent which will be getting bonded to the front of the cooler so all the collected air gets forced through and not wasted! This weekend has unfortunately been unavailable for working on the car due to a family visit so I will crack on on Monday night after work. Will hopefully have it all fitted, plumbed and tested by midweek I reckon!

In the meantime I have also bagged a new Nismo transmission mount and a 6pt roll cage!! The cage was a coup as I've been after one for a while. I HAD originally planned to go with a fully welded in one but the factors of cost and time came into play. To get the cage I wanted would have cost over £2k and taken me around 6 months to channel funds in that direction.
Going to a bolt in gives me most of the protection for a fraction of the cost. I can always brace the bolt in to the chassis later for extra stiffening. Besides, I NEED to get funds put away for the Syvecs S8 and going daft on a £2k cage isn't really helping the ECU fund. The bolt-in didn't exactly come up at a great time but I couldn't pass up the opportunity!! (thanks Al!!!)
Getting the cage done sooner rather than later means I can fit my fibreglass doors and lexan windows earlier and reap the weight benefits that these bring!!
