Little update:
Fuel pump packed it in. Turns out the maddat unit supplied with their kit will not support high boost. Probably ok for stock ca18 though.
My diff also packed it in. I brought the r31 diff used from a drag ute so it was inevitable.

This has led me to decide to upgrade the fuel pump to a Bosch 044, rebuild the diff and while I'm at it I picked up Garrett GTX2867r brand new at a decent price. So a fresh tune and I'll report back with figures and drive ability over the disco potato.

What's next?
Well cpc inlet manifold, larger injectors, 6boost exhaust manifold, tunnel mod and rb25 gearbox. Then I am DONE!
I swear.

Must be making a lot of power

Are you sure the Borg-Warner 78 (from the R31) is going to be strong enough? I think they are only rated for 320-340 ft.lb. They are common here in the Camaros (aussie-sourced axles) but a lot of guys swap them for something stronger

Im pretty confident the diff will handle the power. Its not excessive and im only aiming for 300rwhp on pump fuel. We dont have E85 up here in Cairns yet. It came out of a high horsepower drag setup ute.

Update:

So new turbo on, same-ish power with 10psi less boost. Haven't seen graphs or driven yet as the diff is in a million pieces.
Dropping down to 3.7 gears to make highway driving more tolerable. New truetrac lsd going in too.

Im really suss that my setup is letting me down and something is a miss. With all the components of the build i would expect ALOT more power than what im getting...To investigate further means more time pulling things apart. So its with workshop still as time is something i dont have. I think the timing was setup incorrectly.

Ive ordered 260deg camtech cams, adjustable gears, a 6 boost manifold and im also going to run an rb26dett ati balancer with some nice pulleys from Matt Eastgate.

Scored the cpc inlet manifold secondhand so that will go on too.

Ran at the drags...13.5 again on 200hp. It was 34deg and again the my fuel system is heat soaking.
I have ordered a fuel cell and will install this week. Quieter operation and more capacity.
Booked in for cams, manifolds and tune.
Fingers are crossed i see some good results after all of this.
