88 Chaser Bt1
Hey I bought my car almost 3 years ago and wanted to keep it the same as I bought it as we all plan to. After a few little problems like the flywheel exploding and destroying everything in its path like the block, crank, gearbox, and cut the chassis rail it was just one thing after another, I just wanted to go faster and faster. It now makes 306rwkw on pump fuel.
My main aim for the car in the end was to have a tough street car, respectable times at the drags and a car I could drive to and from the track for club sprint races. Let me know what you think.
Here is a list of mods ive made.

Forged and balanced bottom end
Custom steel flywheel.
Port and polish head.
Custom camshaft
Adjustable cam gear.
GT 35/40 on AVO low mount exhaust manifold.
Custom 4 and a half inch front mount cooler.
Custom 2 and a half inch pipes from the turbo to cooler.
Custom 3 inch pipe from the cooler to larger T/B.
Custom 4 inch inlet pipe to turbo with pod in custom air box.
890cc Injectors
2x 044 pumps from surge tank in boot
Rising rate fuel pressure reg.
Link G3 ECU
Standard MX7 gearbox (onto the fourth one now).
Mini spooled VLT diff with standard gears.
3 inch exhaust from exhaust housing back.
Hi flow cat.
AP racing 6 pot calipers 343mm rotors, braided lines on the front. Standard VE calipers on 330mm vented and slotted rear rotors.
Monza bucket seats in the front.
Custom trim by Pro stitch matching front seats
Black carpet.
Three auto meter gauges on the dash.
2x 10 inch subs with 2x Kenwood amps.
Phillips splits front and rear.
Sony x-plode cd head unit.
White VY SS 18” rims with Falken 245/40/18 track tyres.
Custom built coilovers an the front, king springs and bilstein shocks all round.
K-mac camber and castor kit
mile best time 11.20 @ 128mph
Calder 1min 10sec
Winton short track 1 min 10sec
Phillip Island 1 min 57 sec

There is no better place to enjoy these cars and their full potential than on a track wether it be drags or circuit racing.

Next club sprint is at Sandown on the 4th of june (Sunday) Car is getting a bit of work done before then so hopefully should be putting in a better effort than last time when the gearbox gave up on the back straight, got a little grudge match going with a GTIR Paulser and a 70 year old who drives it like hes 20.
Get done and have a look if you can, better yet someone else enter a VL so we can race.

Saw your car at Sandown today, nice brake ducts :) saw you get towed in, didn’t sound too good, was it a snapped axle ??

Shame it happened so early in the day…..

88 Chaser 04-06-06 17:10

Hey nice photos man, yeah a day to forget for the poor old girl. You should have come say hi. Not to sure at the moment definetly diff and a very good chance on the gearbox as well. So far the thoughts are that the gearbox siezed and the diff went for a ride with it but ill let you know when i can be bothered to drop the oils and see what comes out.

88 Chaser 17-06-06 10:57

Dropped the box and diff out, managed to break them both at once. Getting box re-coed again and diif again, getting fuul re-co on box this time dont want any more hassels from it. Next race wont be until after August as its getting used in my mate wedding.
