Re: Piazza_man project

You’ll have to show me some pics of your engine bay and any detail shots of hoses etc you’re annoyed with.

Re: Piazza_man project

Happy to go through the engine bay mods. But before you begin, the key thing is to ensure your engine bay is clean from grease, dirt etc. with strong degreaser and high water pressure. High pressure water is not essential but handy if your engine has built-up grease and grime. I used normal water pr...

Re: Piazza_man project

Thanks mate. Piazza engine bays aren’t the prettiest by a long shot with so much clutter of hoses, wires, and pollution gear etc that it makes it so hard to make them look half decent for shows. There’s still a little more work to do, but the many hours of hard work is starting to pay off. But I f m...

Re: Piazza_man project

Engine bay is nearly to my acceptable standard. Made my own custom 2 part cold air box from aluminium sheet finished off in gloss black. Laser cut custom brushed SS plaque on the air box to tie in with plaque I had made for the intercooler plaque and matt black vinyl graphics to cap it off. I also p...

Re: -89 Piazza Turbo HBL - Kaizen Racing Project 2

Sounds like an electrical problem. Check your spark plugs for any ceramic insulation cracks, have an electrician check your leads, and distributor, etc. Some of this stuff can be visually inspected, eg check the leads are properly connected to the plugs but if you’re still scratching your head then ...

Re: -89 Piazza Turbo HBL - Kaizen Racing Project 2

Awesome update mate, sounds like you’ll have a little time up your sleeve to to get those shocks in. The 5 lug conversion will be interesting to follow too 👍🏼

Another custom touch that I finished several weeks ago. Been slowly chipping away at the engine bay, and this time I designed another laser-cut stainless steel plaque. I faithfully reproduced the original intercooler sticker in size and font to maintain that original factory look at first glance. 00...

I designed a custom bracket for the new IGN -1A smart ignition coil from diyautotune.com that was installed before the dyno run. The coil packs 103mJ per spark and a maximum current of 19A (81,000 volts). The bracket is laser cut 4mm mild steel, then powder coated. DE44ADD5-F63B-492C-ABFD-F0C01AEF1B...

Time for another update, but this time dyno-tuning time. 98RON & 12psi boost: 127.5rwkw @ 5798rpm (about 170kw @ engine) 243.3rwNM @ 4688rpm I guess I was expecting a little bit more, but in reality the power figure is about right for where I live which is 600meters above sea level, and correlat...

Re: The Piazza shock absorber bible!

Be sure to add part numbers for those spax shocks, if they’re the shortened versions as described above, how much they cost, and where you purchased them from for the benefit of others who may be interested.

I must say that front spoiler extension does look good too, and a quality job. :occasion5:

😆 I’m waiting to get my car back from my dyno tuner maybe next week, then I’ll post up some pics.
Meanwhile here’s a small teaser for now of one of things I was working on. 🤫
