It was a tuning issue, donĀ“t need idle air control valve anymore.

Let me ask one more thing, you have a Crystal Body Yokohama FRP rear hatch with OEM glass (window) or polycarbonate?

I'm wondering how do you solve cold start issues. I have to throttle until engine get warm because will stall if don't. I'm planning to install a Bosch air valve feeding air to the throttle bodies (need to make holes) controlled by ECU (Megasquirt) setting the steps (Open wen engine cold and vice-versa) .

Could you recommend some methods to resolve this issue? Or tell me where to read about it.

I don't have cold start at all. Set idle to around 1000 rpm when warm.
I naturally tend to use heel & toe on any manual car I drive, so this makes it easy to keep my foot on the throttle and keep the engine reving mildly until it warms a bit. I find the car idles from around 800 rpm after a few minutes and as it warms, idle will go up to 1,000. Mine does have a slightly lumpy idle, but that's down to harder engine mounts and the 304 cams, etc.

It's glass. I know it's heavier than poly, but I don't like the scratches they get - and poly rear windows on AE86's sag and look, er... poly.

The Levin is going strong as ever. Was out yesterday on Fuji raceway playing amongst some Elise cup cars. It was keeping up, but not on the brakes....(Heavier car) I have a bias valve kit I keep meaning to fit to help equalise the brake pressure better. At the moment there's too much bias to the front (Greddy 282mm 6 pots).

We've been busy recently, not least in completing an AE86 N2 full race car with the help of Techno Pro Spirit for a customer. I'll get around to uploading a thread on that build sometime.... Our endurance race Honda is pretty much completed. Also the M3 is nearing completion, but not happy with the Alpha N ECU. Thinking of Vipec V44 with sequential injection and coil on plug ignition, etc. Lots of different personal & customer projects going on, but not much time to be surfing forums these days. I'll try to put some time aside..

Hi Lennert,

No, I've been waiting for the N2 project to be finished by TPS - so my car could go to them for the engine refresh, but I heard this week they have a turbo 86 project to build next - so at some point I'm going to take my engine out on the drive - and send it to them on a pallet, which will be quicker their end.. I did a PTFE treatment down each bore, to help improve compression. Thought I didn't feel much difference, the car felt pretty quick on the track. Maybe really opening it up helped clean the valve seats, I dunno.

Honda: Well, the guys haven't been updating the blog so much recently - but it's got no A/C at all now, better cooling ducting, much stiffer springs and lots of other little mods. It's still on the road registered class, so we have to keep (visibly) within the rules and that includes all sorts. We can't strip it out as much as we'd like or it won't pass Shaken inspection & we won't be able to drive it to & from each race! Here's the blog, there's a video clip or two there: http://tgrdatalog.blogspot.com/
Three of the guys are doing a 6 hour race in it - on 19th June. The 12 hour race is at the end of August and 6-8 of us will be sharing the driving.
Should be fun. We'll probably try and put some funds together and buy a 10% higher ratio final drive for it - which will give us a better advantage when going uphill & improved acceleration. 1.10 is about as quick as most of the road registered class goes around this circuit (Full race cars do about 1.06- 1.0Cool, so the old Prelude's quite competitive in it's class now.

BTW, of the 2 cars you drove whilst in Japan:

E30 M3's Alpha-N ECU never did work properly, I could never make it cold start or idle properly so I'm going to rip it all out and fit a Vipec V44. Should be fun to have a much more powerful ECU & see what it can do. There's some interesting new electronics technology in tuning cars these days.

You'll also be pleased to hear the RX-7 was one of the quickest amongst 50 Skyline GT-R's on Fuji Raceway when the Nismo club had a track event. The little FD was quite conspicuous. All just fun, not that serious.
