okay so plan so far :-

its booked in at nissan on friday to have the brakes sorted new rear shoes and a full bleed! if this works and the brakes now work fine saturday its a run to see tommo and the stafford crew powerflow at 12PM is already boked for a 2" cat back no box system.

Pray that nissan can sort my brakes!

noise regulations? even micra rally cars have a box system. but i suppose they are noise tested and road cars are not. i know track day organisers will turn you away if you dont pass the db test.

yeah but i can get a DB insert for £11 to cram u there for noise regulations youd be suprised how loud 105DB limit really is it has that 3" box in place of the first cat just no boxes from there back.. but like i said this all depends on nissan sorting my brakes out.

you should've said, i'd have given you a hand sorting brakes. i worked at nissan in chesterfield for nearly 4yrs. it's got to be better than them getting some yts kid doing it and charging you a fortune. why does it need rear shoes? i can't ever remember changing a set on a k11 because they was worn.

good karma:- they fixed the brakes. but i was expecting alittle more
from them

bad karma :- 1) the rear bearing is on the way out
2) i orderd a janspeed manifold for myself and richard only has arrived but they have taken the damn money for them!
3)i get home to find churchil have renewed my insurance
for project ####box without any say so from myself

I dont know! atleast its a sunny day and i can get to stafford to get my exhaust done!

exhaust is now fitted £90 for the cat back it would have looked abit silly with just the pipe so a tip was put on it. also had the 3" de-cat box put on at the same time sounds loverly :D janspeed manifold is sat upstairs waiting for the Aircon to be removed..

but the arches still catch so im raising the fronts 10mm to stop that. also noticed that water is coming in from where the seatbelt bolts were wo need to put the bolts back in, and the rear bearing needs doing ASAP! so its another trip to a garage to ge that sorted!

Richmicratwist came round today as we both baught janspeeds the other week, but we couldnt fit them till we de-aircond the cars.. so weve spent a god 9 hours doing both today so now got a brand new janspeed on mine and richards.. but its pulled my exhuast into contact with a heat shield so i need it adjusting and its very very very very very loud lol have to shout to my passengers righ now says hes deaf in one ear! so i need to get a decible insert for day to day driving.. aswell as get the rear adjusted to stop it hitting..

still needs its wheel bearing doing aswell!!

not bad it pulls to 115 if i could slipstream someone it would easy go 120 and hit the limit. the K&N is letting it down need a sealed airbox.. some cams when chie decides to send them.. and the re-map and il be happy with its N/A form.

Nice printout that, interesting to see that they move the torque graph above the power one, makes for slightly easier (if initially misleading) viewing :)

Max power at that rpm is pretty spot on for a standard 1.3 block with bolt ons.
