  2. Advice: week 1 shoot in all the modes, play with the camera as much as possible. Week 2 and the following months, shoot in manual mode only. You'll become familiar with how the camera responds to light and you'll familiarize yourself w/ the ins and outs of the camera. Once you're familiar with that, shoot in whatever mode you want. But, you'll only obtain that level of familiarity by shooting manual..

  3. I only rebuild the car to the engine which is currently in it and sold the turbo to the current owner, his name is Sebastiaan, a while later. That's it. All the credits go to Sebastiaan. (period) About the optimistic dyno, I can understand why such a remark has to show up. I also know that this will be a never ending discussion. What i also know is that the people of Fasttech, including Sebastiaan, before they invested in their dyno system always have been under the impression that several dyno systems they have used or hired weren't showing everything. This sometimes for reasons that things like measured acceleration numbers didn't add up with the power figures measured. After they installed their own dyno system they have spend a lot of time optimizing cooling and log ECU data to see if things like MAF voltages and such didn't show unwanted side effects of insufficient cooling which often result is lower HP output but also very often shows very positive lower end torque numbers. Next thing is that the car in the video has made a ridiculous amount of dyno runs to date. Currently the car is at it fuel system limit outputting 470 crank HP and torque over 440 lb-ft. FYI it accelerates from 62 mph to 125 mph in 7 seconds. Still same engine which btw doesn't sweat at all, bone dry not a drop of oil to be found on the outside. I have seen this car on the dyno several times. It was beaten like no tomorrow and the results were very repetitive time and again which says something about the cooling used with this dyno. During higher ambient summer days some issues with temperature control show up but now with the freezing weather it's working very well. Sebastiaan's brother Marcel also drive's an S70® with a build engine and GT3076 turbo and I have seen this car repeat over 415 crank HP run after run on that same dyno for well over 2 hrs. Eventually they settled for 435 crank HP but during all the runs and tweaks the power curves showed stable power. No indication that things heated up to much. Even when taking a couple of % deviation in to account the numbers are still extreme for a stock engine. And of course Happy New Year to all!!

  4. If you set the washer on extra spin or something, the centrifugal force should dry them quite well. I basically took mine home after getting them out of the laundromat's washer and let them sit overnight in the garage. To help re-form them a bit, I propped up edges that were sagging. I also used mini plastic clamps to hold the two sides that go around the center console together.

  7. A soldier walks into a bar and says, "Anyone want to hear a Marine joke?" A guy stands up and says, "Hey, see me? I'm a Marine. See that 6'2" 230 lb. guy? He's a Marine. See that guy, 6'4" 250, he's a Marine. Still want to tell that joke?" Soldier: "Not if I have to explain it three times."

  11. if johann touches it, it doesnt count but really, i think it is more of a case of an optimistic dyno.

  12. on his new build he plans on using an 18t, so i would assume it was done on a 16t. I just posted in his thread asking what exactly was going on. Re: dyno, when doug dyno'd his yellow, it turned out to dyno about 100 over. I'm suspecting something like that happened on the s70. I hate to be a nay-sayer, but there wasn't exactly a wealth of information posted about the s70 either. No matter what is going on with either of these builds, the rods still look mighty thin to be praising them when there is a lack of knowledge to go either way. I really wish it were otherwise(i drive an 03 T5), but i'm starting to get very skeptical.
