    This will be interesting! How much power are you looking for? Good luck with the build.

    It will probably take a few weeks for everything to arrive and complete the installation. I'll be sure to provide updates along the way.

    Power wise, I'd like to think 250kW at the wheels is achievable. Anything around that mark, providing it's responsive, and I'll be happy.

    Thank you!

    250kw is very achievable.

    The dyno I usually use (owner is a friend) reads a touch on the low side compared to others in my area, about 20kW. So 250kW at the wheels on that dyno and I'll be happy.

    good luck with the build; sounds like a lot of fun...

    Who is doing your tune? sorry if i'm telling you how to suck eggs but make sure you are aware of the limits of the power and torque on the stock motor. i'd seriously consider internals if you are planning on driving it hard for long periods. if its really a road car with short spirited drives the stock motor can probably handle it based on other peoples experiences...

    I've fitted Whiteline LCAs/ALK and AR-1 semi-slicks to try and maximise grip, although there's only so much grip available in a FWD. A proper diff' is on the list for down the track.

    Thank you.

    It will be tuned by Ben at TE via a local tuner. It is mostly a weekender/toy so only limited hard use. But upgrading internals has been factored into the future equation.

    I found the limit of the standard RB engine in my R33 many years ago and I've been upgrading and replacing components and finding their limits ever since.

    Some goodies arrived yesterday and this morning. Oh and I ordered a GFB DV+ only to discover it has one fitted already - no I didn't check before ordering. So if anyone wants a brand new DV+, I have one for sale (only asking what I paid for it).
