I know I have been raving about the people who had worked on my car and the next person is no different. Rob from Definition Motorsport is an absolute legend and an all around nice guy who is the very definition of professional (no pun intended).

Rob set out to finish off some wiring with the cam angle sensor and fit up the 60mm sr20 throttle body. To go with the larger throttle body rob made up and re routed the intercooler piping utilising larger diameter alloy piping for its improved heat resistance qualities.

Thanks again to Zuboo who sold me some ID1000 injectors and genuine suzuki power steering improving the on road drive ability which was all installed by Rob.

Whilst Rob was sorting out some odds and ends I had him install a oil cooler to help keep the temps in check during the summer periods whist giving it the beans.

Finally it was dyno day, a day I had looked forward too for a long time and ........ it made a whopping 158hp atw on 15psi. Something was very wrong. I felt gutted and quite frankly I was shitting myself as my tight budget was almost consumed.

This is where both Rob and Zuboo were worth their weight in gold. Through their wisdom and experience I was told not to worry and the car was in good hands. I must say when your car is 1000kms away and is being worked on by people whom you have never met you sometimes question your life choices. Not on this occasion however, I knew it was in the best possible hands and I was not dissapointed.

Rob identified a faulty blow off valve which was a used evo 8 BOV that had been installed when the Suzitech turbo kit had been installed. I had this installed against what had been recommended by them at the time, I should have listened to Pete from Suzitech and installed a new turbosmart unit. A silly man pays twice.

Then it was time to finally get the car home and I must say, I could not be happier. Even the after returning Rob and Zuboo have been more than happy to talk to me about everything. This is something that will not be forgotten and again I can not recommend any higher the people whom have worked on my car making it what it is today.

So whats next? Well first I'm looking to fit up a set of Advan Neova AD08R tyres wide a little better which should provide a bit better cold grip and handling in the wet compared to the Federal RSR I currently have on.

After that I will have to address the suspension, its a bit clunky and old. I have ordered a set of Harris Motorsports rear camber plates which I will fit in conjunction with some BC coil overs or Tiens? I'm not so sure yet, perhaps I can get some advice from DMWDave in relation to whats the best option.

After the suspension is rectified I will install a Haltech IC-7 dash to bring the cockpit into the modern era. After that I will address the paint and finally fit all the new window moldings I have had sitting in my wardrobe.

Hopefully you guys have enjoyed the latest build progress and I am open to suggestion/reccomendations.

Also got some camber plates and would be interested to know some opinions on what suspension to use as I’m at the same stage of needing some coilovers.

Next up is to sort out the suspension. Have some tiens to go in with some new cusco adjustable tops. I will be looking to get a bigger 20mm rear sway bar and bushes, looking at getting the superpro rear sway bar if anyone has had experience with the quality of these?

Took the car to Kanzen in Kiama for a bit of a detail. Just a single stage correction but came up well.
