So good to have driver window working! Means I can go back through maccas drive through =)

Bought a radiator flush and spent ages flushing radiator. Stupid how long it took the hose running through the engine for the water to stop coming out brown. Filled back up with coolant now. Next up is oil change which I bought a engine flush and two 4L bottles of magnatec for. Also will put on the new Nismo oil filter at same time.


It would pay to remove the heater hoses and flush out the heater core too (just with a hose this time).... the radiator flush wouldn't have made it that far up the cooling system :)

I flushed it multiple times with car running, heater going and taking it for short bursts up and down road to make sure it got all the way through. I've already got all the new coolant in now so will do that next time I flush rad which wont be too far off.

Great minds think alike... you've already done that! Well, what you did was just as good as using a hose in the heater core.

...or is that simple minds think alike.
I'm not sure which I am lol

You can also take the radiator into a shop and get them to take the top tank off and rod the core out that way you know its 100% perfect.

Hahahaha, Here's the oil and filter after oil flush and change. From Black gunk to magnatec 10w40. Crap bulky filter to nice compact Nismo filter. Old stock sump plug to Blue magnetic sump plug. My car loves me for it. Feels so, so much smoother. I used STP engine flush.

Off to CT Auto and Scarles on monday to go look at some nice things to spruce up the engine bay. Need to get a catch can so I can change all the plastic air filter stuff to steel and silicone. Also bought 6 of those motortech engine degreasers for $20 from supercheap. Not too bad.

Some new gear. D1 spec catch can so I can change the plastic air filter box with steel pipes. New rear outer tie rods from Redline. They were mainly needed for WOF. I also got a D1 spec rad cap and will be getting an oil cap as well. I have been checking out engine mounts and the cheapest I can find is $95 at ACE parts in otahuhu.

New 3" stainless steel cat back exhaust going on tomorrow before the meet. Trying really hard to get WOF. Once the exhaust and tie rods are on, all I need is an engine mount and then good to go.
