  2. Right here we go guys been trying to get this done for some time now. Ive had my glanza for 2 and a half years now after looking for a clean stock 96 spec for around 6 months so when this beauty popped up i had to have her so after a 4 hour drive to see it she was sat onmy drive that night and a massive grin on my face from the drive home. The spec when i bought her :- Stock 4EFTE engine Stock body ( very clean ) Evo 6 Recaros and custom rails 2 1/2 inch Custom Exhaust 15" Team Dynamique pro 1.2 alloys HKS BOV The plan was to keep or totally stock but after 2 months of ownership i signed up to ukso and my eyes opened up to the world of starlets and things suddenly chaged to this At the time i didnt have a lot of money so managed with a tight budget BUT i did not realise how crap toyo sports were haha ! The manifold last 1000 miles before it split into 3 pieces unfortunately i dont have a picture ! so after that i new quite i bit more about starlets so i saved and ordered a td04 mani of sacha @ wepr because i do like there quality of work and craftsman ship. whilst waiting for the manifold i managed to get some forged internals dirt cheap so i went about getting the block machined to fit them, 2 weeks later the engine was built back up with the new wepr kit to look like this So that was up and running with me loving the power but once again things changed and a mate was selling a td05 16g of his scooby so i bought it cheap and slapped it on aswell as uping the boost to 1.5bar and made 311bhp on a rolling road in wrexham. Next thing was a fancied a change to the exterior so a new set of wheel and bonnet were ordered wheels, Shneider 15's Which soon got changed to Rota Grids along with my Carbon dipped id workz cruise boonet And then another wheel change to 15" Rays Q Games I ran this set up for around a year whilst i was researching 24/7 about what it takes to get to the next level of performance, I planned everthing out with what and how i wanted and set around to stripping the car down just after christmas 2012 to free up some funds. my 400+bhp target SPEC WOSSNER pistons PEC rods Lightend, Balanced and Knife edged crank ARP Bearing and Head bolts TMD port and polished high flow head Tighe custom grind 282 cams Cruise springs and buckets Cruise 2mm headgasket Full engine balance with cusco flywheel Painted the block and head with hi temp paint to spruce it up a little After a dozen or so emails over to Sacha @ WEPR we figured out what type of turbo kit to run and during the next 12 weeks i had a couple of pictures Then all polished up Once it arrived i had to get another with the mams hand in to show the size of this thing Then test fitted Then inlet was on my mind and luckily a Racetech Race-Spec version popped up, test fitted So that was the engine ready to roll including a set of Honda k20 Coil plugs ready to get rid of the dizzy. Needed a new fuel rail as i got stiffed with one of the famous CJPerformance one and luckily BEAN had put his HKS one for sale which i couldnt resist as id been after one for a long time In went the engine the day before the 5 hour trailer journey to Racetech @ Sheffeild Brakes were the next thought and Keri had just set up a group buy with perfect timing so they arrived and got fitted straight away with a new set off Meisters Then Body work Genuine Livesports wings Genuine Varis rear with 98 spec bubble lights Varis front bumber, wont be going on as is ive got a few plans for it to try and make a real aggresive look Cusco cage from Id Workz, please forgive me for the speaker haha ! Dean at RW Developments is currently making me a 8 point rear brace aswell WHEEL WHORES A starlet in japan popped up a couple of years back with a set of XXR'S on it which i new i wanted after that so the search begun, unfortunately they were not available in the UK so on the net i went looking and found a set in the states brand new and perfect size. I payed over the internet and recived an email saying the wheels i had purchased have to be custom made :/ so after so long and not receiving anything i started to worry and tried to get my money back but with no avail. 6 months later KNOCK KNOCK and there they were at my front door with a huge customs bill So i opened them up and there they were, XXR 522 15 by 8 ET0 in Gold after a good wax with auto finesse minty wheels And test fitted, going to need some serious arch work though ! As she stands at the moment she has been @ Racetech since June getting DTA S60 ecu Anti-Lag Launch Control Costom engine loom Battery relocated to the boot Full 3 inch turbo back exhaust Intercooler Coil conversion Mapping She will hopefully be back in 2 weeks time but we all know how this bussines goes so im not getting my hopes up as she was supposed to be back for JAE. ive built this car for one reason and one reason only and that too break the 400bhp mark and be top of the board on pump fuel Any and all comments welcome and please forgive the crap wording asim not the best it writting ! And lastly thanks to all the lads who ive had info and help off aswell as bought parts from over the last few years. Aaron

  7. Item For Sale: Apexi Power FC in good condition, a few wee marks on the case but this does not affect the running of system at all. It also comes with a brand new FC Hako cable that hasn't even been used yet. This is used to connect the ecu to your laptop for mapping, logging and general monitoring. This is compatible with all the different types of software eg CoPilot, FC-Edit and FC-Pro. I also have the boost control kit which comes with a 3 bar map sensor and harness along with a 3 port boost solenoid which connects to your factory wiring in place of the original hi-low solenoid. To make this a complete kit all that is needed is a commander which isn't necessary in any way at all. Its only for sale as such a low price since I have seen another ECU i have always wanted pop up for sale. This is a full plug and play ECU for the EP82, If you are buying it for a EP91 I will include the adapter harness that i made to make it fit. This started and ran my car 100%.

  18. I've just spent the day installing the Apexi AVC-R and playing with the settings and to be honest it would have been a lot easier with the following information. So just to make it easier for anyone installing one in the future I'm going to do a write up and put all the links I used here to get it installed, running and working etc ! What you'll need; AVC-R headunit. Wiring. Map sensor. Solenoid. 2 metres of 4mm silicone boost piping. 1 or 2 6mm T-pieces (depending on external wastegate or not). 5 scotch locks. Pliers. Torch. A beer. Piping/plumbing Firstly, mount your solenoid somewhere in the engine bay. I mounted mine on the front cross member behind the intercooler. That way its out of the way, close to all the parts the need plumbing in and the wires will be nicely hidden when it comes to running them. NOTE* If you're using an ACTUATOR BUILT INTO THE TURBO, you need to use ports "COM" and "NO" on the solenoid and leave "NC" open/unused. If using an EXTERNAL WASTEGATE you need to use ports "COM" and "NC" leaving port "NO" open/unused. Piping in the ACTUATOR/INTERNAL WASTEGATE; 1.Run a line from COM to the nipple on the actuator. 2.Run a line from NO to a feed from the boost sytsem (typically the little nipple on the turbo). Actuator/internal wastegate setup shown below. Piping in the EXTERNAL WASTEGATE; 1.Run a line from COM to the top of the wastegate. 2.Run a line from the bottom of the wastegate (flange side) to a feed from the boost system (typically the little nipple on the turbo). 3. Cut the line from step 2 and insert a T-piece, and run a line to NC. External wastegate setup shown below. Next you need to install the map sensor. This will be the part that tells your AVCR exactly what boost pressure you're producing for an accurate reading! The map sensor; Reading about, you're supposed to mount this with the nipple point downwards... I'm not entirely sure if it makes a difference, but do it anyway just to be sure lol! I've put mine on the bulkhead hidden behind the inlet with zip ties. Once you have mounted it plumb it in like so... 1.Run a line from the front of your inlet to your dumpvalve. 2. Cut the line in step 1, and insert a T-Piece and run another line to the map sensor. Map sensor plumbing diagram. After that's done, plug in the Map sensor and the Solenoid ! NOTE* Running the wires through the bulkhead is a fucking pain in the arse. I have no idea why they put such massive connectors on the parts, but there we go... To make it easier I cut all of the connectors off and then ran the wires through the bulkhead from the inside. Even like this it was hard. I ran the tube from my old boost gauge through the bulkhead and then zip tied all wires for the map sensor to the end, and gentle pulled them through by pulling the tube back... For the solenoid I still cut the connector off but ran these wires through the wing and took the indicator out to pull them through. When all wires were in the engine bay I added bullet connectors and made them water tight with heatshrink. This way it will be much easier to remove the bits if need be in the future! WIRING This is the fun bit. Get on your hands and knees and get comfy in the driver's footwell like a hobbit because you're going to be here for at least half an hour fiddling about just to fit 5 wires. (Micra owners will have it a bit easier here seeing as your ECU is behind the dash, which can easily be found by removing the glovebox) Unplug the connectors from the ECU from behind the centre console under the dash on the driver's side (EP82 owners). Peel back some of the plastic covering to reveal the wires and give you space to splice into the wires. Next you need to match up your wiring to the diagrams below by splicing into the wire using scotch locks. Pretty straight forward... Have fun LOL. Wire colours and what they are... NOTE* Throttle position is NOT needed on manual cars as the EP82-91 TPS is either on or off. So no point wiring in the GREY wire. You can add it if you wish although there is no point unless you have a TPS from an automatic starlet as that does use a progressive TPS... I can't remember exactly why you would need it, another feature on the AVCR that I've forgotten about . Where they go: For the purple wire, USE RPM1. After you have wired them in, plug the connectors back in, connect the head unit, tidy up your wires etc and mount the unit... It's time to turn her on ;). SETTING UP THE AVCR. To save a lot of writing, I'm just going to put this link in... I found it very helpful just reading through it... NOTE* One of the main problems I had that I will mention is my RPMs were miles out... To fix this, go into the settings under "ETC", select car selection (or whatever its called ) and put in the correct settings! For my GT it is a 4 cylinder, I left the SPD on whatever it was on (4 I think) and I put the throttle to " * * " as this means it isn't used!... As a preset it thought it was connected to a 6 cylinder lol, hence RPMs being miles out... http://www.nissansilvia.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=167038 I hope this helps a lot of people as it would have helped me a million! If I have made any mistakes or missed parts, please let me know and I will edit the post/guide whatever you wish to call this . Thanks! Adam.

V Low for a Glanza! Any questions feel free
  20. Right, well this is the story of my Glanza i bought back in 2009 and the trials and tribulations that come with owning these cars! Ive always wanted a Glanza ever since i was about 16 and seeing one at college as it went past with the sound of the turbo spooling, exhaust popping, and fluttering as he lifted off. I knew straight away one day i would own one! I finally managed to get one at the age of 19 after a couple of months of searching and seeing some right dogs of cars this is the one i settled on! These are the images off piston heads when i bought it... When I saw it and took it for that first test drive that was it i was hooked! Been a bit wet in the ear with turbo cars etc I checked all the usual stuff and didnt see any issues, and it was SERIOUSLY quick. When i started on the forums a bit more I realised it did have a few issues, Cracked head around the exhaust port Boosting to 1bar no fuelling mods only an fcd fitted So it turns out it was actually fitted with a jam actuator and a jam fcd, so i was only driving it on low boost mode until i could get that sorted. So i bought a hks actuator and attempted to fit that, been the first thing id ever done to my own car it took me all day, with lots of swearing, shouting and grazed knuckles. But I did it, and got it all set up without removing anything other than the weather sheild underneath the engine. Result! So I cleaned it up and took it for some photos to celebrate A few weeks after that I got in the car after it had been parked up in the public carpark over night to find a note on my windscreen, to find out someone had reversed into my V. They left a note with a phone number and explaining they only "lightly tapped" my car. And to call her and she would pay for the bumper to be sprayed. Not alot of visible damage, but scratched the bumper, dented the bonnet and broke the headlight. Rage is not the word for what i was feeling at that point in time! When i explained to the lady the extent of the damage and the fact parts are very expensive for these as its an import she tried to get out of paying me any money. So in the end i had to go through her insurance company. The insurance garage picked it up and towed it away, but the guy from the garage was really nice and agreed to cut out smooth and spray my bumper while it was off for my FMIC id ordered RESULT! So this is what it looked like when i got the car back a week or so later I was well chuffed! So on goes the fmic, my cooling panel and a ssqv dump valve, and my own home made earthing kit, (Im an electrician by trade so that was all up my street!) Not bad i considered seeing as I had never worked on any cars at all before i owned this! So I drove it like that for a little while and I made 151.6bhp at a rolling road, which is was fairly happy with. Then, the power bug bit me, and I decided i wanted more!
