TUNING THE NISSAN SR20DET

In for a little prep before Drift Practice, a battle scarred Nissan Sil 80 sporting the old skool GT2871R, 64 housing blowing the compressed air into the classic OEM Red Top SR20DET. This ones a little different though. Check the screamer pipe outta the bonnet letting off the externally gated exhaust gases. Controlling the engine is an FCTuningNistune ECU Solution Plenty of sideways action

TUNING THE NISSAN RB25DET

Another nice Skyline well maintained as much as possible cosmetically by its owner. Mechanical work and know how was passed over to the expert hands of the guys at Redline Motorsport UK followed by a cruise down to the dyno to optimise as much as possible followed by final tuning on the dyno. The only let down was the fact that the actuator was a little on the weak side and could only sustain 1.35 bar for a few thousand […]

TUNING THE TOYOTA 1JZ-GTE

FC Tuning in Holland_Session 16 The Toyotya 1JZ-GTE was back, but this time the owner NEEDED more torque Who doesnt eh.  So a 2JZ GTE block was mated to the VVTi Cylinder head and a Ford Lighting MAF was fitted along with a set of slightly larger injectors.   The Goal? A Solid 550hp. But this went on to make ALOT more even though the tune was still on the conservative side. Stock Block (2JZ-GTE) Stock Cylinder Head  (1JZ-VVTi) AP […]

TUNING THE TOYOTA 3S-GTE

Out with the factory ECU and in with a programmable ECU in the form of the trusty and reliable Apexi Power FC. Prior to any dyno tuning this lovely MR2 was in for a service and dyno recheck at Redline Motorsport. This resulted in tuning going exceptionally smooth with minimal dyno time needed in order to setup the engine and ecu fully. WE’ll be seeing this nice example back on the dyno soon no doubt, once the water / methanol […]

TUNING THE SUBARU EJ20

In for some TLC at Redline Motorsport UK Ltd before FC Tuning, we had this wonderful example of a UK Spec STi. An owner new to the Subaru platform Matt @ RM advised it necessary to upgrade the tired old pump before any tuning was to commence. I couldn’t have agreed more. So out with the 10 year old stock pump and in went a nice fresh upgraded in-tank fuel pump in its place. Once the all important Dyno Prechecks […]

TUNING THE SUBARU EJ20

This beloved Subaru Owner had been previously led around the garden path by another engine tuner that attempted to set the engine and ecu up on the road without much success causing serious piston damage. The car and its owner then looked to Redline Motorsport to perform the surgery. So a full engine strip down, assessment and rebuild within a couple of weeks sharp including all mating meant the owner wasn’t off the road for too long. The car was […]

    TUNING THE MITSUBISHI 4G63

    Its always nice to tune 2 of the same model of car on the same day and do some baseline research. Things such as making comparison to engine compression, actuator strength and status when independent boost control is switched off. Analysing and comparing exhaust systems, breathing, intake, temperature, even asking the drivers who’s running which oil. Seems as though this EVO 7 got the better of the younger EVO 8 on this first outing. Im expecting to see both these […]

    TUNING THE MITSUBISHI 4G63

    A weak actuator let this 4G63 down on power. Boost just kept dropping way too much despite a supposedly new FORGE actuator. we’ll be back with a stronger spring, preloaded correctly to fight another day and look to see if we can extract another 20-30hp from the solid 4G63 lump.

    TUNING THE SUBARU EJ20 (P1)

    This time it was out with the old OEM ECU and in with the New Haltech ECU. A UK 1st. There s a big story behind this P1. The new owner took on a project that was in a poor state,to say the least Redline Motorsport took on the role of rebuilding and prepping the engine. The entire chassis needed a full strip down and the loom was removed in favour for some fresh wiring and an ECU to match […]
