  1. Small update! I've swapped the head studs on the car, first time doing that, have a whole thread on that experience... It's scary doing it for the first time, as it makes no sense how those nuts can take so much torque! Few parts have arrived, got a new exhaust manifold from hypergear, it's a standard manifold with an external wastegate fitting. Nice little kit and very good price. Came with a Hyper-gate 45. Unsure yet if I will leave as a screamer or plumb it back. Also while the valve covers were off, I gave them a clean up and painted them wrinkle black. The little parts washer I had made this super easy to prep. Considering how cheap they are, they are definately with the $80 they cost. Also my new venom cat with a 5 inch body arrived, looks to be really good quality and price was very reasonable. Just waiting on some new exhaust studs, some parts to block off my internal wastegate and then I'll start putting the car back together and hopefully get it retuned and meet my new power goals also got a full genuine Nissan gasket kit, amazing how much cheaper it is to buy it as a full kit, was around 245 and comes with everything except the half moons. Was going to cost me more than that just to buy the turbo gaskets, copper washers, intake gasket and cam seals seperately... So at least I have spares of all the seals I haven't replaced now, including a head gasket.

  2. What a rip-off... More inclined to pull it apart and repair the solder joints.

  3. With gtr fest and 2020 done and dusted now is the time to start removing parts that are being replaced. first cab of the rank is the frenchies twin in tank kitfirst I fitted a 460 into the original cradle and put it back where it lives in the tank then I modified the original top hate to take -8 and put some wire through that can hold some current and sealed them with some fuel resistant epoxy

  4. One last pull on the twins before we rip her apart and add another couple hundred horse power. this is as roughly 500+whp 22psi. pulling it to about 7800...listen to the 4" exhaust just cracking the earth! almost makes me sad to go single but i think im done with the twins. i hope my 6466 has same spool as my -5's.

  5. I was going to go down that path, even have a inlet gasket to make a manifold adaptor. But Targa rules changed again, so 26 crank and rods and a slight bore to bring to to just under 2.2l. Swap the RB20 highflow for a Neo highflow

  8. Open diff sucks arse on the track. Inside rear wheel just spins when you're trying to power out of corners.

  10. Seriously no one cares about YouTube channel builds. get over your fascination of YouTube and Insta likes. The world has been playing with these for 30 years. All the info is out there, we don’t need Americans with limited knowledge trying to make videos your dad is smart, you should listen to him. A stock gtr is extremely slow and boring to drive. Skylines are not the amazing cars you think they are. you are going to end up pouring a small fortune into building a 1000hp car and then honestly you will rarely drive it. Something will constantly be wrong or need attention.

  11. I would just like to add; do your research on AMG's before buying one. I've owned an E55 AMG and I've never seen a car depreciate so bloody fast. I bought it used, must have been about 5-6 years old and I had paid 30k (70-80k loss in 5 years). I can remember giving the owner the 30K at the bank, him putting the 30k + roughly another 30K from his pocket just to pay it off to legally sell it to me. I was stunned he still owed 60k on the thing. I sold it 5 years later for 18K. 110k to 18k in a little over 10 years. If you do your own work, they are fun cars but parts are bloody expensive. If you intend to always have it serviced at the dealer; forget about it. I remember going to the dealer once to get an alignment due to the air suspension (most other shops didn't want to touch it) and got quoted 600$ for a 30min job. After a few choice words, I walked out dying of laughter.
