Yea, a good scrub with a toothbrush and funnily enough, some toothpaste, and it will come up tops. Previous owner in Japan didn't remove the clear plastic protector from the name plate either, and it's melted itself to the plate, so I'm gonna have to be inventive to get that off without scratching the plate underneath it.

Also found out from Nick that these need the BBOD to sit right, which makes sense, and given my car no longer has one, I'm going to have to get inventive on that front too. But I've got the semblance of a plan brewing...
Watch this space...

Cheers,
Ben

Good to hear there weren't any issues with the larger dump! Makes life a lot nicer! Aussie tune must be a little more understanding than the jap one I had.

Pretty sure you'll get 200 to 220kW out of 550's, but that's about the limit to a "safe" tune with them. Much more than that and you'll be needing some new squirters.
BUT.
200kW is still plenty of fun, and for a daily, not much more is required I don't think.

Echo the sentiments, enjoying this beast from afar, keen to see what you end up with!

Cheers,
Ben

Looking good there Nick. Can't wait to see it on the ground without the massive 4wd lift look going on.

Now that it's been mentioned, how did the bigger dump go with the winter/high humidity days? Any dramas with overboost protection cutting in?
It was a nightmare when I first got the single conversion on my old B4. 3" dump made it breathe way nicer than the stock ecu could handle

Mmmm. Noice! Does look good, and transforms the front end.
