    Project twin e34's

    Cool, Gavin's a good dude and super helpful! I was running a JB Racing Flywheel and stock sachs pressure and unsprung friction plate which was fine. Upon going to supercharger figured it was best to uprate and I regret listening to the guy at Autoclutch when they were still around. He modified my 265mm JBR FW to fit an e36 friction plate (240mm I think?) with custom spline and associated release bearing, drilling new dowels into the FW and now everything is custom, uprating the spring force on the pressure plate. The release bearing he gave me didn't fit onto the shaft of the gearbox and his comment when I questioned him was "it's all custom, what do you expect. Use a flapper wheel to grind out the centre and make it fit". I was not impressed after spending a lot of coin. Setup is OK, but slips a bit when giving it sh*t 2nd to 3rd... which likely means an entirely new setup = $$$. They shut down about 1-2years ago... I did run cams in mine too, so was a tad lumpy, but nothing I would expect otherwise? Motor was running sweet after the rebuild on the standard M60B40 DME. I did replace all vacuum hoses and modified the PCV setup at the time. Best to check for vacuum leaks and the MAF before taking it to Gavin.

    Great work Richard! When are you planning on coming to Auckland for the tune? Perhaps we could arrange a meetup if my car is running again by then... currently installing XYZ coilovers too and a few other teething issues

    Haha, this won't be reasonable on gas...

    What ratio diff did you go with in the end?

    Nice mate, good progress and thanks for photos of the PMC adapter. Heard a bit about it but never seen the exact setup.

    Yip at Gavin's. I didn't ask for a print out, but we actually made 375rwhp before dialling it back. I'm told his dyno often reads lower than others, but meh... a dyno is a TUNING TOOL, not a bragging tool... I'll take a video in the weekend of idle.

    Haha, fair enough... i'm not telling porkies, rest assured. This is the only video I got of the day and it's close enough to 370 to prove it... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-mlPsJxJVQ

    Without the cam work, the idle was mint. With cams, the ICV was struggling to keep the idle level and it hunted. Currently sounds good, can definitely tell they're not factory!

    I made 195rwkw/260rwhp on the M60B44 with reground cams using factory M60B40 ECU. Gavin did some non-boost tuning and it made ~205rwkw/275rwhp. This is my first personal experience with a standalone ECU (and re-wiring, let alone tuning one...), but I found after research, reading and speaking with knowledgeable people, the learning curve wasn't bad and I learnt a lot. The car wasn't running without the LINK and he didn't tune with boost to start with, rather safely tune off-boost and move into it. The LINK team are friendly and helpful with questions... being NZ based is also useful while the car is on the dyno and the owner (me) asks something to specifically be tuned from Gavin... literally within 5min the answer was found and we pressed on.... I am very happy with Gavin, the LINK, the tune, the build and the car!

    Made ~276rwkw (~370rwhp) at 5psi of boost without water/methanol. Heat soak was a problem. We experimented a little bit with water/methanol and reduced the intake charge temps from 60degC to 42degC, but didn’t proceed to pull more power out of it. Car is on a safe tune with more to be done in the new year after tidying up a few things. Overall extremely happy... Christmas has come early for me . Thanks Gavin at hi velocity.
  13. Still after one?

    That was a while ago now Mike! I'm told the setup was running 8psi with an aftermarket pulley, but i'm expecting something more like 6/7psi. It's a centrifugal powerdyne unit (ex-Dinan)
