I may* run on the 28th as there is a local hill climb, but the first planned* event is on March 11 down at Wakefield Park.

To run this month I'd be running the suspension as is, so completely stock, due to the timing of the event. By March the car should be set up a bit better (a bit of camber at the front and a wheel alignment).

Nice Bob!!

When you install the extinguisher bracket I found a better way to install it. Don't use the little spacers but lift the seat up and slide it under the seat. It allows more room for the seat to move.

Car looks amazing!

Thanks for the tip, Russ. The bracket is still in the box (haven't opened it yet) and I was going to fit it to my race seat base. At least with these later models the seat bolts are regular bolts not the torx bolts seen in earlier models.

So I've just picked the car up from Pulse Racing.

In standard form the car had a peak figure of 114 kW@RW's.

Now with a full (street-able) exhaust and tune (E85) it has 155 kW@RW's.

There is still an issue with the flex fuel sensor, my late build MY17 car has a MY18 ECU the ecutek hasn't played with before, so they're working on a fix over in the UK on that.

Pics etc will show up once I scan the sheet and get an "underneath the car" pic off Paul's phone.

I think I need to drive the car in track mode now, it easily breaks traction (Yoko AD08R's) and kicks the rear sideways on high rpm 1st to 2nd changes and activates VSC on 2nd to 3rd left in normal driving mode.

a 36% improvement in peak power over stock is pretty impressive generally, let alone for a NA engine.

For a low-mass car like the BRZ that would be all the more noticeable. Great stuff :thumbs:

Thats sounds like a whole lot of fun and decent numbers without the need for forced induction. Must be putting a big grin on the face now

The car or me? My fat arse is still over the ton.

The MY17 is something like 1270 I think.

The good thing is the power and torque is well up everywhere in the rev range (after 3k).
