« on: May 25, 2012, 07:57:42 PM »
so as you know i had a r34 that i built from stock standard-ish to a learner track car


standard (no rego or wof, gtr rims, Cwest front kit, manual conversion)


full kit. (stolen from adrians r34)



the begining of the turbo conversion (fmic, 3inch exhaust, rb25det turbo, link g4)


conversion finished dynoed at 180kw (scraficing a diff to the drift gods on the dyno)

next bit i had it certed, needed to tie loom back from steering rack and wheel alignment and leaky adjustys.

the wide body kit. after seeing adrians r34 with it on i had to put the guards on mine too (with ducktape 1st)


then rivited (drift spec with crome rivits)


with pant thanks craig.(with carbon wing)

THIS IS WHERE IT WAS AT WHEN IT WAS STOLEN!
NOW THE STORY CONTINUES...

before


after i got it back



the car was a mess so i pulled the rb20de+t out and degressed the engine bay.


the engine after i pulled it out, sold engine for 250 and turbo for 250 yay.



the new engine, rb25de neo was a good engine last time around but this time with a much bigger turbo.
and if 370cc injectors are to small then some 800cc denso injectors might work.


starting the rebuild from the ground up i might aswell start at the back. (old subframe)


new wc34 stagea subframe (25mm wider both sides)

have adjustable arms to go in too but will snap a pic when its all back together.

Awesome. :)

Edit: Be careful with chromed arms. A member on this forum that went to Targa? had his top arms crack (rear) on his Stagea.

took the front subframe apart this weekend been looking at mos to get more lock but for skylines it really comes down to knuckles and steering rack spacers.

i was going to move the steering rack forward on the sunframe but been told its not really needed as the binding that is created from xtra steering lock is only an issue with silivas

and now i have a spare set of knuckles to play with and big brakes that come with em tee hehe

these will help with ajustability and they came with the set i got for rear.

i will be ditching the abs now tho because these new hubs dont have abs sensor... oh well.

The amount i modified the knuckles on my r32 made me have to move the steering rack forwards as it would overcenter in the factory position.

todays efforts.


stripped the jarm etc off the hubs then went and bought the 32mm socket i needed to take the hubs off the knuckles

saddly i ****ed the end of the hub so the nut wouldnt go back on. hmm there has to be a better way.

also painted the brakes mmmm black goodness.

now hmmm what to do about the ****ed hub.
