I think you need the PRO version of PowerFC to have the ignition cut, launch control (drag spec PowerFC ECU).

R34 intercooler installed which was real easy and ordered a black oil filter relocation block. Also routed looms from sensors for gauges.

Mounted the oil filter relocation block today. Was quite hard to find a location that hides all the sensors that are bolted up.




Need to buy 4 x -10AN 45 degree fittings in black and black braided hose to finish it off

Nice install, interested to know what others think but I would ditch the ryco/ Repco filter in lieu of fram or hks or Nissan genuine.

Agreed. I've pulled those Ryco ones apart & they're horrible.

use a drift filter.......it has a mag centre so it picks up all the crap :)
you can buy them from mag & turbo (at least thats where i get mine) they are about $30 but WORTH it having the mag in it, i also have a mag sump plug for piece of mind

So has been a while since I have done anything to the car, I seem to be spending all my pocket money on my new found interest in photography. I received a parcel today:



This excites me much. Big thanks to Aaron for once again making quality items!

Plan is this to get some track time in it this year, so things I would like to get done for the track are:
Harness bar fabbed up and installed
Remote filter plumbed up (required for oil gauge)
Get custom L-plates fabbed for the correct seat position on fixed back seat

couple of pics with the gauges mounted, am yet to wire them up as i need to get some wire and decent fittings.





The plan was to make this a temporary solution, but i think i would be happy for this as a permanent fixture. i just need to get a little panel made up for the HKS fan controller to be installed where the ash tray would go.

Once again super pleased with it!

so gave the car a clean and had a play with the camera. the one thing i struggle with is framing a shot, so i drove around until i found a reasonably good place for photos. here are a couple of shots i took:









these were all taken using my 50mm SMC Super Takumar lens

Splashed out today and bought a genuine greddy plenum and throttle body adaptor, the reason for going genuine is to eliminate any issues that can be had with knockoff/custom plenums. Hopefully wont take too long to get here.

Still havent had the Greddy front mount kit installed either, may aswell do them both at once now.
