    Just read this through.

    Good job doing nearly everything yourself, Especially with all the issues you've faced.

    Car looks really good, Great original colour as well.

    Cheers guys, I'm stuck on what to do first,

    Head gasket and headbolts?

    Or ecu and remap?

    I'm dying to get it back on the road so I'm thinking of ecu first.

    Is your New Head gasket likely to Lower the Compression ?

    If so, I would fit that before you get it Mapped, As I imagine your Mapper will be dialling in a little more Boost with the Lower Compression.

    I think I'm going to do the head gasket first ( 1.5 or 1.8 mm thick) and go for 450bhp on standard internals

    Right the arp headbolts have been ordered ..150 so close to Christmas

    But this needs to be finished now.

    Engine work begins Monday.

    Baught a compression tester aswell to check it before the head comes off.

    while you've got the head off, I'd check the ring lands very carefully as best you can if you're not pulling them out, the RB25 pistons don't seem to be resistant to any det.

    funny, I've gone for a forged bottom end, pistons, RB26 crank but I'm using standard head bolts and OEM gasket. done it the other way around.

    I'm currently going one step forward, 3/4 step backwards with mine, progress but v. slow.

    I might actually buy forged pistons and rods depending on funds after Xmas.

    Progress is like you say very slow.

    I didn't use aftermarket rods, I just picked up a good set of RB26 rods. they're more than enough and good quality - mine were within 2 grams of each other without any work done to them. The only thing I did do was replace the rod bolts with ARPs.

    the rods are the same dimensions between RB25 & RB26 so they're useable on yours too

    they're a little heavier than the aftermarket options but much cheaper.
