Default SC 5.0 with 412rwkw thanks to Pitlane!

Another big thanks to the Pitlane team!

Andrew for putting all the parts together and Mick for tuning it up!

I loved driving the car with the 366rwkw Mick squeezed out of it with a tune and an air filter only for about 18 months or so....

But I didn't like how it lost so much power on repeated stints on the track, or on hot summers days....so had the guys fit it up with the intercooler and bits and pieces listed below (in my sig)hoping to get over 400rwkw.

Mick gave it back to me today with 412rwkw!

The extra torque/power is noticeable from low revs and even more noticeable at top end how much more it pulls!

And it doesn't lose this power after repeated squirts!

I love this car all over again!! (Not that I ever fell out of love...)

Thanks Mick and his crew again!!!

Nathan

Because of the location of the breather on the stock diff it literally pumps oil out of it on high speed left hand corners like at Phillip island.

It then squirts all over the inside of the drivers side rear wheel...

First time it happened I thought my diff had exploded, it literally jizzed oil all over the underside of my car!

John at Herrods had seen it before and suggested a length of hose attached to the breather run in opposite direction capped off with a plastic bottle.

Allows oil to run back into diff.

I think the hose is approx 1200mm long.

Works a treat, no more "diffsplosions" at the track any more.

I'm rapt Mick!

It just feels stronger everywhere in the rev range....surprisingly more snappy in the lower range and up top it just feels like it needs a rev limit of 8000 :-)

Thanks for the awesome tune mate!!

Have a good weekend
