I used this stuff I borrowed it from someone on the Forum
https://justjap.com/tomei-throttle-coat.html

The throttle seals I think I got from here:

Thanks for the links! If I have to have the manifold off I'll definitely give those a try.

One of the last things to do idle wise it to put a bit more preload on the spring in the idle valve, but it's a bit of a job.

You need to dig out all the epoxy, it reveals a bit flat head grub screw. 1 turn on this or so to account for any yielding in the spring over the years. Then you should be able to use the other screw to adjust idle again.

Here is a pic from SAU.
I don't have the kit to go that far so thought it best to leave it. I've had it off and cleaned up and now it idles around 1100-1050, so some improvement.

I think I can live with that for now so I'll leave it as is. At least until after I've been to some shows this year - that's quite enough time in pieces!

1050 is almost within tolerance anyway, so thats pretty good.

Remember often the tachos are out too :)

I chased this same problem for a year or so lol.

The turbo refurb and the turbo line refresh looks sublime!

What did you get done to the turbos as part of the refurb? Did TD use 360 thrust bearings as part of the turbos?

The N1s are steel turbines aren't they?

Anyhoo all the work looks fantastic, looking forward to seeing more stuff :squintdan
I’ve still got my R34 turbos which you can have at a good price as mentioned before. Can even offer you Billet comp wheels if required.

You can actually adjust the rev counter to match true rpm. There is a little plastic phillips screw adjustment point on the back of the unit which was set at factory when new. Its not a quick job though and kind of tricky to adjust with all the wiring connected. But it is possible.

FFS Younes! You know my project is on hold atm :mad:

Why you do this?! I didn't know you did billet comp wheels for the R34 turbos, just thought you did them specifically for the 2860s.

Can do them for any turbo. Check out IG posts of recent. Buy them then when your ready I can get wheels designed and made. 13g is a lot of weight saving ;)

First show out the way, RetroRides Weekender at Goodwood was a great day and the best thing was no issues! except one idiot (me) left the brake fluid reservoir cap loose, but thankfully I spotted that after a first run around the autosolo.

Lots of variety at the show, and it was so quiet. It was great to walk around the cars on display without thousands of people around them like the other goodwood shows I've been to.

Some excellent cars on display, both in the static sections and being let loose around the track!




I ended up with a prime spot to display the car, right infront of the RetroRides stand





Undoubtedly the best part of the show was the track action, and at £10 to enter on top of the base ticket price how could anyone say no? I had great fun ripping the GTR around a course designed for MX-5s and Micras, I think some proper tyres will be the next upgrade.
