Looks like an electrical problem. The rod knocked the alternator off the block. :lol:

Figured that I'd better bump this thread with a video showing just how hard it was going before it spat out the rod :-)

FreeEMS FTW!

Enjoy!

This video is the reason why I ended up here. It convinced me, that freeEMS is definitely worth a try.

I love the sound of your car, it was (is again?) one of the most nicest sounding 4 cylinder turbo engines I've ever heard!

What kind of blow off valve are you using?

Rewatched for context... not because I don't have a fast car in Spain...

"What's it revving to?"
"Urr, I don't know!"

LOL.

It's a three cylinder oil spreader that is in storage at the moment, sadly. If/when I get some cash in Europe I may get a 325 and do something to it. We'll see. So no, not running, really. It did start up after it threw the last rod, but it shook like hell :-)

BOVs are twin 38mm R32 GTR Skyline (the real GTR, not like the current toy) units in their original housing as seen here:

Thanks for the compliment! I wouldn't say it sounds nice, but nothing with nice flowing equal length exhaust manifolds ever do ;-) It doesn't sound bad/harsh/obnoxious, though. It's a bit loud for my tastes, so in future I'll add another muffler or two and possibly a zig zag in the 3" tubing. It'd be nice to have the same sound, just less of it :-)

Fred.

PS, it's a shame that we can't get Sean to post some vids of his turbo beasts... I'm certain they'd attract users too.
