Re: Cory AKA Nissanfanatic's old car

Re: car will not start...

The easy way to test it is to hook a multimeter up to test voltage at the starter positive input and turn the key, if it has 12v then the everything is working to get 12v to the starter. Next test resistance between the starter and a chassis ground. It should be very low; less than one ohm. If that ...

Re: Starting my KA24DE-t build soon. Advice needed!

I always stuck to 1bar of boost on pump gas, which made 350whp on both of my turbo setups on stock internals. If you want more power past what your car makes at 1 bar, an increase in volumetric efficiency is the only way to go reliably IMO. I always attributed my car's power at 1bar to good exhaust ...

Re: 3" exhaust worth it on T25?

The ideal exhaust post turbine is no exhaust. So, the bigger the better but there is a point of diminishing returns. I don't see any problem as long as the exhaust isn't smaller than the turbine discharge flange size.

Re: Royal Purple Oil Filter

Tried one on the S2000. From reading about them they are pretty high quality. They are made by Champion filters IIRC. I ended up just going back to OEM filters.

On the KA I'd probably just stick with Purolators. They are pretty tried and true.

Pretty common issue. Most of them do work for average, everyday stuff. And it can come down to what machinist you get too. Just like a barber shop, the cut is all in the barber not the shop. You may search locally for a specific person and go to that guy only.

Re: What exhaust for 500hp

I would just do straight pipe of the same diameter or larger than your turbine housing discharge. If it is too loud for you then you could always throw a Dynomax ultra flo or a race bullet in line.

Subarus tend to be pretty hard on oil, but M1 5w-30/10w-30 tend to shear down very fast.

Switch to something a little more robust like M1 0w-40/Rotella T6/German Castrol. They are probably cheaper as well.

I'd think anything that is at full boost 4000rpm+ is going to do fine.

It is a lot more important to...
