What Bitter said: if you’re reading the AFR’s from the gauge, they’re not showing what’s really happening.
You need to log the data at the highest frequency allowed.

Additionally, I skimmed the post, so i am sorry if this was answered, but your turbo; if it’s a t25-28, you’re probably hitting full boost around the rpms mentioned, so I’m curious if you’re boost controller is hooked up properly. A leak could cause some issues at idle and in controlling boost, but if the controller isn’t hooked up correctly, you could be trying to spoil your turbo to Infiniti and beyond.

I’d triple check the boost controller. If it wasn’t ever controlling boost property yet, i would target something like the waste gate’s base pressure (7-10psi probably), and make sure I can hit that to Help rule some things out.

Edit: I read the whole original post...I’d throw plugs into the list of things to check, and I don’t know if you have the setup, but I’d try to document boost when logging the AFRs.

I once had a setup try to spool to the moon...probably the only time I was happy to have clutch slip.

Cool to see the GT4 in a video. As usual, I’m sure tires play a large role here, so it probably just serves as entertainment.

I do wish the Yaris was coming stateside. The Corolla GR hatch could be neat too, but I’m expecting it to be a good bit lower than the Yaris on PWR

Box is correct. Noble M400 w/ the 3.0 Duratec. It's been modded a tiny bit and did 420 at the wheels, so a whopping 10hp more than the NSX did, but it weighs a lot less.

The Mazda is in need of paint, but I've been trying to make sure the motor has everything it needs first. I really don't want another rebuild. I'm currently retuning it after replacing the turbo with a BW EFR8374 and the ECU from Apex'i to Haltech.

Strangely, it's the Noble that's had a rebuild already, but that's due to a California shop doing a poor job on the assembly.

I met another guy last night with an FD as he bought my Power FC. It was crazy to find out that he used to own a 3S-GTE 5th gen celica, non-alltrac...

Is Coomer still around, or did he hand off the forum?

I still lurk every now and then to see if any kouki LHD GT4s hit the US.
Figured I should give my near-5-year update...
NSX got replaced:


Had an S2k for a while, but it's now been replaced:

Nope. The Evo and soared are both gone. Also had a 240 for a short while (that thing felt so light!)
Sold the sparer to this guy, who sold it a year or so later: http://youtu.be/WCCsIzz382c

Just the nsx and a DD atm. Working on another car, and the nsx is for sale (harder to move a s/c on, especially in the northeast)

I saw the supra. Looks great

HIMYM, Big Bang Theory, Top Gear, The Office, Entourage, and True Blood.

I may try to see if Ordinary Family is ANY good, but I doubt it will be.

While I agree 100% that final products go through Many changes from their initial concepts (see below example of the GT-R concept), I disagree 5,000,000% about the Volta being the LF-A. To me, that would be like saying the new camaro is the concept Shelby. Since multiple projects are done at a time, I'm sure other projects stole some ideas off this car (like the exterior which had outside help), but anything that does not use batteries should not be called the same car as the Volta, IMO.

I wasn't aware the LF-A was a hybrid. If not, then it is not the same car. Being called a Volta, it's not meant to be anything that doesn't include batteries as a main component.

They are my stock Gsr wheels. The color is a black w purple flake that I picked from a color chain for powdercoating. Their specs are something like 18x8.5 +38...not sure, but google will tell.

These are my winter wheels. I didn't want to put the stockers back on as is, so purple!

yup, I swapped out for the 1jz shortly after buyign the car, due to the clutch release fork breaking on the stock tranny. Knowing I wanted to swap, it seemed like the best time to do so

Thanks all for the votes!

lol, I offered it FS for 10k a bit ago. I wanted $, and was tired of it's tiny issues here and there. Only told one guy though, and he wanted to get it for 7.
I think at any time I would be content letting it go for 13, but nobody will pay that I'm sure. For 13k, people expect a full leather interior and AC. . .
So i'll just continue to build it.

Hey Guys,

As most of you know, I still lurk these forums, and post every now and then. When I owned a 6gc, I tried helping the community as much as possible, by pushing the first TRD Spoiler Replica GB, and starting the CF Hatch(perhaps another or so, but I forget). While those didn't go smoothly(people backing out due to VIS taking forever), I can see now that the items still remain in the market, which is good.

I am hoping that you guys can help me to mod my newest purchase, a Evo X. Vivid Racing is Giving away a set of KW Coilovers to the car with the most votes(doesn't matter what the rating is).
I would greatly appreciate if you could click the following link and then click the yellow botton above the picture, on the left, to vote for my car


http://www.vividracing.com/forums/gallery/...mp;c=504

Here's my two cars together, something that doesn't happen to often, as the lexus sits in a storage unit


Thanks to those who vote in advance smile.gif
