'Screamin', how it looks now.
« on: August 28, 2009, 03:10:12 PM »
Took these pics just after driving down a gravel road which turned into a muddy road (was driving slowly ;)).

Haven't done much since i bought it off Screamin Skyline, removed most of the stickers that were on it (flammable, Mobil 1 etc). Got a new, better alarm fitted (old one was... old :p). Got most of the maze of wiring all tidied up and a big fuse for the (cheap, but meh) sub etc put on outside of fuse box. Got an engine bay detail. Got Southern Skylines stickers put on both windscreens. And other stuff i can't remember just now.

Kinda want to get a little more torque out of it so it doesn't slow so much going up hills, but will have to find out $$$ of that. Not gonna ever turbo it though, sounds too nice for that.

Future plans aren't too much, thinking of painting the blue stuff in the engine bay to same colour as the car. Gonna velcro the carpet onto the steel plates in driver & passenger footwells. Gotta try find somewhere for electric fan switch by drivers seat to go (spotlights one is already gone, got the main spotlights hooked up to the ones behind the grill now so they go at the same time). Maybe paint underside of bonnet (for car shows). And not much else.

Anywho, pics.






Can't stand driving it if it is dirty either. :o

Some pr*cks bottled it the night before these pics too, but thankfully the damage doesn't show that much.

Still looking as good as ever.
For more torque there is the option of a swap of a R32 RB25. Just a drop deal.
Other N/A option is a RB30DE, damn near a drop in deal, especially if you use the head from a R32 RB25.
I used a R33 RB25DE head but little had to be done to use it in the R32 Skyline. I built it over 18 months and prepared everything else prior to taking time off work and swapping the RB20DE out for the RB30DE. 5 days on my own and she was all done.

The sound of a N/A RB30DE is something else. Love it.

Sucks to hear about the bottling Andrew. Really pisses me off when people do that to others property.
The car will always struggle for torque, but as you know by now, drive it right and it will embarrass quicker cars. If the '20 is to come out (don't turbo it or I'll hunt you down!!!) let me know.
As for the sound, I still miss it. The ITB's on the rally car sound cool, but no match for the red car.

Na, quite like the rattly lazy daily Chev @ 6200rpm
I get my rev fix from the '20 in the rallycar. 8500rpm
Or if I need more I borrow Dad's 12A. 11000rpm:devil:

The challenge with the rallycar is to run competivley in a cc rated class. Most competitive is 1600-2000cc, that's where I play. And, why I want 1st option if Andrew ever removes the '20 from my old car! Sweet 'lil motor that one, just asking for some ITB's.

What does ITB mean?

Don't really want to chuck a new engine in there, was hoping could get more torque out of current one but ah well.
