Just to correct your Aussie slang, "Whacka Whacker" should be spelled "Wacker", or you could have equally used "******" which is more common these days.

Props for your use of the word "Drongo" in a previous post though - very "Ocker".

I tuned a gt35r evo a little while ago. seeing the gauge peg past 25psi as it hurls you back in your seat is pretty revolutionary.

I hope Dan literally runs ALLOFIT

23psi was in fact all of it on the previous setup that netted 297.

I touched up a tune on a 32 psi GT37R Evo 8 a while back. Thing was a ******* rocketship.
It hasnt been dyno'ed because of a lack of AWD dynos around here, but its easily in excess of 600.

Thank you, you were right. I used a really good stethoscope to confirm everything was healthy.

Dyno booked in for next week.

Bonus pics, now the splitter has been cut, the bar has been evened up and trimmed and the matching wheels.

A shot of brakes and arms and sways, these shocks are wrong, something to do with playing with his StupidCharger NA8. It runs tein monoflex.


Splitter, cut smoothed and painted, yes it will need to be cut further, at the track.


Bonus photos, repping mad tyte stance. (for humourless mods, this is a joke, dont warn me aboyt it)





Friday week is the dyno, for those playing at home, timeanddate.com will help you find your local time for results,

Nope, oil cooler should go on top of the hood. Learned that from that kid with the RX-7.

No way man, it should be mounted to the front tire, if its out spinning in the airflow it'll cool better.
