Moding the factory intake manifold. Shaved and smoothed out. Ported with a 60mm throttle body.
 270cc vg30et injectors. Does make it look a lot cleaner




PowerAid bottle .. Dont diss it. thats 40hp there alone!


After a  bit of playing around



Now here is the depressing bit. Since getting it painted and driving her for around a year she
did fail her wof on brakes and a ball joint, That pushed me to finally take her off the road. These pics are what's seen on SDU. as some of you seen, But ill shorten it a lot



The engine bay is being painted with bed liner. Its a strong fuel and fire resistant ( and rust preventer).
The great thing is, it doesn't chip So i don't need to be scared with it. It has a great knuckle tearing texture!!.

A close up of what it looks like



The rest is pretty boring, But she is now the Main project. I'm just waiting for the rust to be removed,
 . Just waiting for mofo to finalize the shipping for my Body kit and other goodies :).
Lets say, Flares. Kit. Wider than normal. And low. Should look a treat :)
 Pannel work is happening yet again since i was ripped big time with the last paint job. Its not bubbling down the sides and on the roof. Pretty depressing a bit of money down the drain. But none the less. The project continues!!

After working with the engine bay, Found large amounts of rust in the lower strut towers. R30's were really common for this. Thanks to Nissan no sealing and treating the skins. (using double skinning also) Front windscreen is due to be removed to get to a lot of surface rust which will progress to more if i leave it.

Attempted to remove the rear windscreen. Pity. That FAILED big time. 95% removed and it shattered.
With that, and a huge shower of glass. Well i had to take back a fair big of rust in the lower corners.... Up around the roof line.. and down the sides. Lucky its only small pin holes, which i can access from the inner skins.

Wish i had all the rust done, its really holding me back!!!!!

Got the intercooler, oil cool and radiator mounted





I cleaned up. HOLY MOTHER I HAVE ROOM!

Got to be at least a 500hp+ turbo??? :eek:

What style of rims have you decided on, as it looks like they are going to be wide and maybe deep dish???
