Alternator relocate ahead of turbo fitment. Just 2 bearings on a stud with nuts securing them as a tensioner. 4pk belt I had lying round till I get a 6pk in the post in 2 days time.

Yepwell done ryb proved the naysayers wrong eh proof that a cg10 can run safely half a bar on the stock coilpack ecu
one of the biggest track improvements i did was the rear bias valve delete, i found i could brake a lot later and corner a bit slower
From where to get tacho clocks?As you can see I also haggard cut the grill out nismo-esque. Not sure if I regret that decision or not!
Personally I'm more about how the car feels to drive rather than chasing speed and grip etc so next up was changing things up for driver feel.
Got myself a racing steering wheel (budget but quality from McGill Motorsport I believe)
Also got a new gear knob which there's a photo of later.
Bought some JDM porn for inspiration:
And fitted some tacho clocks:

Thanks much appreciated. My original setup was just this yes. I didn't retard the timing at all just ran colder plugs and made sure they were gapped properly. I didn't have a way of checking the AFR's however and resorted to checking the spark plugs, which always came out a good colour. I think the only reason I got away with that small injectors however was due to the top mount intercooler which for a while was just a heatsoak really as I had no hoodscoop for a while. The hotter less dense air required less fuel to maintain a rich AFR. On my current setup I used qg15 injectors initially (top feed ga16 equivalent) and with no intercooler the AFR's were spot on. As soon as I mounted a front mount, albeit a smaller one it ran quite a bit leaner so required bigger injectors. I'm currently running 222cc injectors at 3.5bar base fuel pressure, so quite a jump up in fuel requirements from simply cooler intake air!Hi Ryb, love you blog and builds on both cars! I’m currently starting to work on a turbo build myself, this is on a dizzy 1.0. Was your fuel setup simply ga16 injectors and fmu regulator? Did you have to retard the spark any? I believe all I need is turbo, mani, injectors, fmu reg and intercooler? Is this correct? Thanks in advance, any help is much appreciated
Thanks buddy.Making good progress mate.
Did you need to modify/fabricate custom brackets for the mini rad? Is it bigger/thicker than standard?
I've been looking for an uprated radiator and it seems that there aren't any Micra specific ones available, which is boring.
That was my concern with dumping oil heat into coolant. I'd rather have another cooling circuit to avoid this! Plus I simply can't run a stock rad with this turbo. It clashes and it doesn't make sense to run an oem one in a different location, might as well run an uprated one with all the hassle I takes. In hindsight/in the future I would have the turbo sit in a position that clears so my own fault lol!Auto micra rads have the heat exchanger at the bottom to cool the auto boxes, could rejig one of them for cooling oil. Although you're dumping oil heat into the coolant so not ideal, plus you have your rad sorted already. They're around 10mm thicker than stock manual ones though

I imported it from America. It was a tuning shop that had an eBay shop. Mine is 6:1, 12:1 is more what you'd run for low boost setups with stock injectors.I always fit an oil cooler system on my turbo cars- can't believe some don't come with them from the factory, help no end with engine temps.
The only problem with coolers on these is the space available! Going to be fitting an ic and looking to sort an improved rad (thanks for the info), which will mean I'll also need to sort a transmission cooler seen as though my cube is CVT. I might have to go in the front arches with some ducts/feeds.
Where did you get your rr fpr? I was looking at getting a 12:1 for a project last year but they only seemed available from America?
Have you considered running meth from the tank rather than injection as a cheaper alternative to weigh up the pros vs cost?
