Heads up, BG5 GT-B Wheels for sale cheap.

23 March 2019 - 12:16 AM

Hi I spied these on gumtree and I'm pretty sure they are JDM BG5 GT-B wheels. If they are this is very cheap. I want them but already have wheels and with shipping to Darwin makes it not a bargain any more. Worth a look if you're into that.



Zero sports Sequential boost controller

14 February 2019 - 09:59 PM

Has anyone got one of these they want to sell, or knows if there is a way to DIY modify the shift points to and from TT mode? I would love to go to say 5K before it shifts to twin mode as you would barely ever get stuck in VOD around town I reckon. Its not a deal breaker for me but it is frustrating some times when it transitions right at the wrong time.


Aargh Ive stuffed it!

I Took it upon myself to shorten my boost control lines and extend the wiring. This seemed to work well as it seemed quite responsive when I took it for a drive but again seemed to be dropping into twin mode quite early. So I put it into diagnostic mode and noticed the ECV duty solenoid was not clicking like it was the other day so I decided to clean it out some more with UEC. This seemed to make it work well and I blew out the lines with gentle compressed air and connected everything back up. Upon driving it the primary would only boost to about 9psi  which was less than before and in twin mode it was hiccuping and bucking- the same as it did last time I stuffed with the black box, but last time it went away after resetting the ECU. So I tried that and had a look in the box for anything amiss, nothing I could see. So I have been driving it round trying different things- lines on or off and if anything it seems to be getting worse.

It has put out no codes until I really floored it and had it coughing and spluttering for a long time- the check engine light flickered a few times and on checking it was code 23 which I read is AFM related (Abnormal voltage entered from air flow sensor) but I think this is the result of all the coughing and spluttering, and it was quite hard to get it to do this. The problem seems to be getting worse- to begin with it was ok but not as much boost until twin mode but now it is hiccuping through the whole rev range but is really bad under boost.

I know it came just after I played with the box but could this be fuel or spark related, and what could be happening so badly other than that that would not produce a code? I'm lost and want to throw up a bit.



What mods can be done with out tuning ECU?

25 January 2019 - 01:48 PM

As the title suggests, what mods can I do to my early gen2 LGT, twin wastegate model? I'm not planning much at this stage but it would be good to know what I can do ie exhaust, filter etc with out tuning the untuneable old ECU. I'd like to put a more free flowing better sounding exhaust eventually.


Boost control solenoid testing?

18 January 2019 - 02:46 PM

Hey, I am just starting to go over all my vac lines and solenoids and realize that on my car when I have it in diagnostic solenoid cycling mode the BCS does not cycle, it just stays closed. Is this normal or is it maybe stuck? My boost has always been on the low side on the primary turbo I think.

Also, my silicone vac hose finally arrived and it is not 3.5mm internal as stated, more like 2.5mm. Should I use it or not?
