So are the ratios shorter? If so would that not induce more wheel spin??

Its alive



Dash all back in and wired up




Engine ECU now controls boost electronically, and the boost solenoid powers throught the water/meth controler so if the water flow stops or the level sensor in the tank detects low water it cut power and drops down to 10 psi, its also linked so a speed sensor so i can set different boost levels in each gear

Aswell as that i fitted a potentiometer to the EcU to control the traction control, it can turn TC off or i can vary the agresiveness from hard to soft

Also have the launch control button on the steering wheel so can hold the rpm at a preset level while the button is depressed or set the launch and it will turn off automatically once a certain road speed is aceived



I wosh now though i had put the pot on the steering wheel, the start button is now on the wheel though as being on the dash ment if i stalled the car while i have the harness on i had to unbuckle to start the car again, now its easy and also means once the steering wheel is removed the car cant be started

Very good Martin.
Have you got speed sensors on all four wheels? Is the traction control through the Ecu?

No just one rear wheel, it works out slip by comparing rpm to road speed
Cuts spark when it senses slip but can change how harsh it cuts
Ive only got the s60 so its the only way it can do it, the s80 and s100 use all 4 wheels

Just need to play with it all now, and work out how to up the boost lol

Even off boost stil felt good to be driving it again

The only difference in the 6 speed is the cable for lift up reverse
Ive put a push bike lever on the gearlever to operate the cable

Apart from a fucked thermostat, ax made dt and back with no issues although did play with the launch control and even in the wet it awsome, can pull away cleanly with 300 bhp in the pissing rain
Needs more power though, i was only running a bar of boost and struggled to keep up with ians 700bhp 911,
Past 120 he was pulling away but did pull to just over 160mph
There are traces of smoke so i think the valve letting go in the summer has damaged the block again

Not much has happened with the ax since dt, shes tucked away in her new home



Im in the process at the mo of moving workshops so dec and jan wont give me any time on the car as ill be moving and painting and sorting out the paper work for the 2 mot bays, class 4 cars and class 1 and 2 motor bikes





I have though bought some new tyres, my rear 888's were worn and needed new ones but as there crap for drag, wont get any track use and only good for 150mph and would cost £240 for 2
I opted for these




W rated bridgstones so good for 170mph and all 4 cost £200

My plan was to change the block over winter but noone can get me rings for my wossners so 2014 ill be running the engine as it is but with a 5 speed box and the nos

I do have a new jp4 block but the plan is during 2014 ill build the new engine to use in 2015 and aim to get the car in to the FWD series at santa pod

Not had much progress on her lately, i should be at the pod for the fast show so this week changed the plugs and oil
Also the powder coating form next door to my garage have just bought a hydro dipping kit and to practice on and use as a demo matt agreed to do a few bits of the ax

White carbon


Silver carbon on black








The pictures dont do it justice, looks so much better in real life
