haven't done bugger all to the car lately, still have the greedy plenum and intercooler sitting in the garage for install. However, i have updated the front of the car with modified sedan fog lights & plastic trim and new sedan grille.

Looking good as always man, what have you decided to do with the Coupe grill just curiously?  :P
Current Rides:
1996 R33 GTS25-T
1990 E39A VR4 EVO 0

Nothing better than the feeling of hitting boost.......................and still thinking you have control!!

Still have it at home, will most likely keep it if I get sick of the sedan grille. Cheers

Intercooler install all done!
Took it for a drive and all is good, although I did forget to ground my thermo fans, so quickly sorted that!
I will take off the front bumper again, as I want to sand the cuts a bit better. I would have done this by now, but my dremel decided to stop working...

Some more pics:









And the Greddy washer bottle is a cool touch

I have the Greddy front facing plenum still to go on. Otherwise we are getting into the major mod territory...

The Greddy hot-side pipe I bought came today:








They even threw in some origami....

Just the standard Nissan one. Can't understand why they don't include this pipe as pat of there intercooler kit. Maybe it's just OCD.....

The new intercooler pipe didn't have a boost feed for the wastegate and there wasn't enough material thickness to try and tap a hole in the pipe. Instead I pulled the turbo elbow off and tapped a feed into that:



Greddy actually instruct to connect the wastegate into the intake plenum, however this is notorious for causing boost spikes, closer to the turbo is better as its more stable.

Next up is to do a general service And tighten up the cam covers as there is a slight leak.

Yep I tapped into the turbo itself.
