Wagnan Midnight is a great series. Yep its not Inital D, but so what. Its great just the same.
Some people get all knotted up about Inital D blah blah.
I watch heaps of anime of all types, so good some bad, but Wagan Midnight and Inital D are at the top of my list of favs.
My top spot is reserved for Death Note and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion - but neither are car related - just awesome stories.

Can anyone suggest a cheap freight mob to get a pallet from Adelaide (Burton 5110) to Perth or even better Toodyay (6566). They all usually double their price to go from the perth depot to Toodyay, so Im happy to pick up in town.

Unfortunately its a tank liner and not datsun stuff - unless anyone wants to put datsun stuff on there....


The company has said 1000mm long x1000mm wide x 750mm high - basically a pallet - weight at 60kg

Anyone got suggestions?

there is plenty of info in the web on just this subject

http://dsportmag.com/the-tech/boost-v ... -high-compression-ratios/

this for a start might yield some info.

as zigmondo said, if your going to mild boost on the street, keep it stock, particularly if you have a good motor to start with.

If you are rebuilding from scratch, you may want to drop it a little, but even then for the effort, its prob not worth it.

You can cheat and use two head gaskets to drop the compression a little.
maybe get a steel spacer cut.
those would have to be the cheapest ways to drop the compression a little for boost. After that its pistons and machining and expensive options.

If you lower compression (ie increase the combustion chamber size) it basically means you can jam more fuel and air mix into each pot and get more bang.

it helps with a few other things like detonation and heat management, but its all about cramming in more fuel and air.

Yeah righto.

The SR20 sump thingo - I'm not familiar with SR20s - too fancy for me...

So If I was to cut off (or most of it) the front hump on the oil pan, make up a flange to suit and both this up.

at $130 delivered, thats cheap.
The casting doesn't look fancy, but its a sump and what do you expect for $130.

Only thing of course is to make sure I can still get the turbo oil return hole somewhere. It could be an easy option, plus it has cooling finns and its alloy -- fully sic racing spec! I wonder if i get a sticker that I can put on the drivers door.....

Looking at that sump.
I guessing that the flange is supposed to be square to make a slanted bottom for the oil to drain to one side?

Thanks Vixen.
The alternator position is variable at this stage, It will go where-ever it fits in the engine bay after everything else is in there.

If Peter comes back with a reasonable price tag for the fancy pump, ill roll with that as its a bolt in operation, but failing that its a A/Z series pump mash up.

Didnt think abot clearance - Thanks dattoman - wings it is then.

I have been thinking about how to best do that and make it look as 'factory' as i can - trying to avoid an ugly looking box on the side of the sump.

Thinking that i can cut up an spare a10/12 sump and weld that to the side. If I can utilse the original steel with the standard pressings, I should look as factory as possible.
Since Im only chasing a couple of extra litres, not an extra 10, I think that should work. - unless I can find one pre-done at a fair price point.


As for the drain back valves Datmado, I recon you want one in the pickup so that oil is kept all the way to the rocker oilers if possible.

The oil cooler (if i can) will be on the return side of the pump - machine up a plate that goes between the filter and the filter screw point - have two threaded fittings, in and out to the cooler so its part of the filter circuit.

With a higher volume oil pump and keeping everything in circuit, I should avoid having to use an external pump to drive the oil cooler

I got an email back from Peter....

he indicated that the Japanese are mad keen on this stuff, and pay massive bucks for them.

He is going to have a look and get back to me. Dont think I can justify the yahoo Japan prices for stuff when I can hack up a hybrid L/A series pump and get similar results.
