    manifold and turbo setup look, is that how the turbo is going to sit once mounted? could just be the picture angle but looks to me that if you need to rotate the turbo you may run into some issues hitting the wastegate.

    can't wait to see it all fitted

    Wastegate has been moved to face backwards as it touched the strut tower how it was and not sure on what the rotation will be like till I have it all bolted on the car

    Awesome to see you're still doing well with the new car dude I had you on FB ages ago (Mike Eldridge, I spoke to you a few times if you remember) but I deleted it.

    Looking sweet nevertheless I'll keep checking back on here to see how it's going!

    Finally a little bit of progress....

    Got the old manifold off


    Picked up some tyres ready for the new wheels!


    Picked up an absolute bargain off ebay, 77 for all this...


    Then set about starting on the top mount


    Bought a water temperature gauge from autosport


    Bought new manifold studs and nuts, z32 fuel filter and a k&n oil filter


    Sorted the hot pipe, just chopped up the old one and used some elbows I had. Will be running this to set car up then will be getting all custom made pipes with minimal silicone joiners


    Air intake sorted



    Also turns out I can get away with re using the old water lines just need a longer oil line and all sorted ready for downpipe and relocation of the power steering reservoir

    Should be even better once it's all done. Going to get it running first then start tidying it up properly

    Set about splitting the 3piece wheels I bought, they are asa wheels and do look like vskfs
    Here is what they looked like before

    The are currently 18x8 et35 and 18x9 et35 so the plan is to strip them all, throw away the lips from the 8" wheel, put the lip from the 9 onto the other to make them 18x9 et10 then buy some larger lips for the other to make them 18x10 et10





    Need to find a way to split the rims without damaging them, any suggestions?

    Little bit of progress today!

    Put the new conceptua tuning manifold stud and nuts kit on


    Then started mocking up where the power steering reservoir will sit

    It's tie wrapped in so I could see how long the tubes need to be and what route they can take. Just need to fabricate some sort of bracket and get it mounted and the new tubes ordered!

    Mocked up my dial mount for the stack gauges


    Then a photo of the bay


    Still got the oil feed and drain to sort out then it can be sent to Wardy to sort the exhaust!

    And can't decide if I should get rid of the abs, what are people's opinions??

    Thought it was about time I updated this a little.
    Not alot has happened as it's been my last year of university so had lots of work to do.

    So here we go....

    Firstly bought a seat as it came up cheap!


    Started cleaning up the feet for the front strut brace
    Here is a before:


    Polished up the air intake pipe as it was the only black one


    Bought a new gearknob


    And again, even though I have finished uni, I have had an operation as am immobile for a few week...

    So I have now finished uni

    Graduated with a 2:1 honour degree in BEng automotive and Motorsport Engineering
    And the most important bit I have a job! Start next week

    So tidied the garage today and made some progress on the Nissan


    Finally got the custom oil drain from Wardy so that it clears the manifold



    Then modified the loom so the ignition amp was away from the turbo so it shouldn't melt. Loom was stripped back to just under the abs and all the unused wires removed and re wrapped



    More to follow soon!!!

    It's been do long since I last posted and in terms of progress on the Nissan not sloths happened unfortunately. So here goes!

    Changed the fuel filter to a Z32 unit as it was due a new filter and a bigger one can't hurt!


    Got rid of the pink ssqv and painted it a nice clean silver



    Brought it out of the garage and gave it a quick clean



    Mounted the rear strut brace and cut the parcel shelf so it still fits


    Moved the Nissan to the new house



    Preped a spare engine to make a coffee table



    Mounted the power steering reservoir and made some custom lines to fit



    Swapped the wheels for some genuine advans



    Got the centre console back in the the dials wired in and a holder made from an old reg plate and some black vinyl


    Wired the switch in for the folding mirrors


    So in the next few week ir should be going to Wardy for the exhaust making then it can go to rs tuning to be mapped!

    Another update!!


    I had a fiddle with the adaptor plate for the air filter and got it to sort of fit


    I then got the power fc controller mounted on the dash, I just used a couple of strips of number plate stickers


    Next up was sorting the wheels, they are all in poor condition with paint flaking off etc but they will do for now. However one was half coated in plasti dip which someone had sanded before applying it so it didn't want to peel off. I ended up sanding it off so had to repaint the wheel I just did a quick temporary job and painted it to match the rest which turns out to be Ford Mercury Grey!



    And there she is off to see Wardy of Apw engineering to get the exhaust made 😀

    Well it's been a while....

    The car has been right at the bottom of a long list of stuff that needed my attention

    So since I last updated this ive got married, had a daughter replaced the roof on the house, rewired half of it and plastered the upstairs along with plenty of decorating and gardening!


    But there has been a little bit of progress on the Nissan!

    After it returned from having its exhaust made it still didnt run right so I decided to strip down the inlet and found some stripped threads causing an air leak
    The fuel lines needed to be replaced
    I added a larger angle to the intake pipe to hopefully avoid problems with the top mount disturbing the airflow of the maf
    And other than that its been sat on axle stands in the corner of the garage!
