If you can't afford new OEM or Splitfire coils just give your old ones a thorough clean and wrap them in insulating tape. Gap your plugs down to 0.8mm

Can I turbo my v35 300gt
You can turbo anything but your car will not be easy. Look instead into the supercharger kit for Nissan 350Z

A lot of them are just sitting there! I know Emile managed to book time to change his gearbox over at Joes.

Forced Induction / Re: RB20DET forward facing plenum

TradeMe ones from the luxury sports etc work fine IFF you check the mating surface and correct if necessary and pressure test for pinholes - (chrome plating etc can fix those if found).

although performance wise you would be fine sticking with the stock plenum.

Have you got a gearbox attached if so what? Is it much heavier than the engine you pulled out of it? Definitely one of a kind!

I think all you can see visually is that they are working. Balance as in even performance is necessary for good running.

Sorry not familiar with the your car but if it has a distributor give the cap a good clean and look for fine lines that could indicate tracking.

Does your car have two water temp gauges like the RBs? If so disconnect the one for the ecu and see if there is any difference in which case it needs replacing.

If its  getting hot maybe test for head gasket leaking...

Is there a fuel filter in the engine bay that could be replaced?

28
Could be a number of things but maybe get the injectors cleaned and tested.

Stagea - the Skyline wagon / Re: M35 swaybars
« on: February 06, 2017, 11:22:27 PM »
Dale (Daleo on SAU) has been supplying suspension parts including sway bars to Kiwis as well so you could contact him for a price including postage.  If its just a Whiteline item you might be able to order it from a local stockist but it could take a while to arrive.

If you haven't been following the SAU Stagea section you could have a read of this:

Did you get the high output coils from NZEFI as well? Have you got a dyno chart to post up?
Great car!
