  1. I can't vibe with the silver. I am going for a nice black everything, Keep it simple clean look. The sinco should also see me good for the single 50mm.
  2. I can let you know. But I won't be ordering shit again till I move house. I've managed to secure another property today so I reckon I'll order around this time next month. But I don't know if that means we'll get them before xmas/new year? I was going to get a 50mm twin scroll in that stainless burn finish. Works out the same price as ceramic coating+6 boost and it looks like you get such a better finish! On another note! Mick has finished his puzzle and I need to get that picked up, Put it on a pallet with everything else I got. Organize the gary for the new joint and move!
  3. Well guys, I don't entirely know who to blame throughout this whole ordeal but I sure as hell won't be buying a 6boost again any time soon. Near 3 month wait when originally promised 2-4 weeks and it comes coated in the wrong colour. This offset's my shit so hard it's not even fooking funny but I ordered everything else in black for a nice clean stealth look so this has to go back. Going to order a Sinco, I see and hear good things. Look at how haram this shit is...
  4. As much as I appreciate the car (she's going to be amazing) I read through this whole thing and gotta say; I appreciate your dedication and patience more so! Pulling out stuff you purchased near decades ago, I wouldn't even remember I had that stuff!
  5. So the landlawd (Why is it every time you time L O R D "son of rajab" shows up?) is selling up, Round about the time where I am just about to get my motor. f**k my life, Guess shes back on hold for a bit! Going to move out west, Get some fresh air and get out of Sydney's hussle. Motor will go on a crate for a month or two while I sort all this shit out.
  6. Not much of an update. Still waiting on the motor. With coota etc my motor got put on the back burner. Not too happy about it but good things take time. Gauges came in though! Sorry but not genuine. The money they ask for gauges is ludicrous. You can buy a whole f**king ECU for the price of 3x Genuine gauges of any major make. When buying fake gauges generally don't go for the really cheap ones, Pay a little more and you'll get something that looks much nicer and usually performs almost as good as genuine stuff (There isn't a lot of science behind gauges). I also rate "shadow pro" gauges for another good cheap alternative. I got these from Cartel @ $80 a pop. They will go in the factory gauge holder. Which I don't think is fitted factory. I was doing the fuel setup the other day. Back there was a bunch of wires, two electronic modules of sorts (assuming hicas/abs) and a pair of double pronged antennas. I reckon when I lift the gauge holder I may see the remnants of the a pop up display. If the screen is still in there I am going to take the RCA's to a notebook then output a HUD from the ECU to it. But I won't know this till I get a damn free weekend to do something.

    Nice to see some GTT love! Have you slapped that front bar on yet?
  8. Signed off for some parts from Japan. (Never grow up gentlemen) Was told nismo dashes are discontinued and stock was only what's on shelf (<10), A fresh 0km 300kmh speedo would be fitting for new motor. So I bit the bullet. And a eternal wait for what is probably one of my favorite parts of the car, Always wanted one but could never justify the price. Nengun had them on special so I jumped on it (It feels solid, chunky, heavy and amazing);
  9. It's good to know the struggle is shared! I honestly believe I could have done it myself and saved a lot more pocket, But with so many distractions etc and how much everything is costing, I didn't want any error. I left it in the hands of Mick @ Mick's Motorsport, He's old school but I've seen him build countless RBs, He tuned the car previously and has an understanding of how abusive I can be to a motor. I trust him to do better than I could. Considered it, But decided that I'll just work with what I had as I knew the condition of the motor. But now days (Especially with everyone's super "happy" dyno's) every other RB is cranking 400kw. In the end it is just a number, It really comes down to how it drives and that'll matter more than anything. Doesn't mean if I stumble across a 30 bottom end, I won't pick up and let that sit for if I every get some more freedom!
  10. 18x9.5 +12, You will not get this to fit decently without adjustable camber arms and hire a really good guard roller, Not just some kid with an ebay kit or ye good ol' 2" bar. Anything can be mechanically reliable if you're mechanically sympathetic enough. Not to say this is more forte; I am not a kind person to anything with a motor. But I am hoping the financial investment will force me to show some self restraint. *DAD 5!* Did you get yourself anything else yet?
  11. Fast forward to about 2 months ago, Something mentally snapped in me. Decided to sell some toys I had to make what I wanted out of this car; A 450RWKW joke that won't die so easily. Had to let go of some nice shit to make it happen; Multiple motor bikes, cars and other various man toys I got over the years. So where are we right now? Well I got a little helper this time ordering overnight parts from Japan; First thing, I'm sure you've noticed I keep going Mamba turbos. I've been an avid supporter of Eiji Takada and his products since the early days of Kinugawa. I truly believe that for the dollar you pay; There's no better. So I consulted my old homeboy Eiji who doesn't understand any of my jigaboo and saw that he was pumping something limited edition to the specification I was looking, Behold the Mamba GTX3582R 7+7 Arakaki Special; If it dies or doesn't make the goal; I'll just get the Garret. YOLO is still a thing right? Went and got; CP 86.5mm pistons, Spool rods, Tomei Procam type B cams and all the other jazzy-fizzle to slap a motor together. I gave it all to Mick @ Micks Motorsport and said enjoy your Lego set brother. Call me when it's done.... It still not done. But I got myself a billet intake manifold, twin plate ceramic clutch, 2200cc injectors, 2x 044's and a surge tank, Tomei FPR, Some SSR sp1's that fit the guard better, Some east bear copy bar, 6boost manifold, 45mm Progate etc etc to wait for my motor to come back and I can slap it all together; I am still waiting delivery of a lot of stuff but shout out to Phil and Robbo @ Cartel Australia who have been running around chasing parts for me!
  12. So you see, About a year or two moved on. My daughter got to the point where my attention wasn't need. So I went to the garage (New house as you can tell by my downgraded gary), De-dusted the old gal and got to work. Motor out time. Now I was going to keep it simple stupid and bought a ebay intake, manifold and slap a mamba GTX3076R on it for retune with a new head gasket and studs. Got it all and hell; Mock fitted it. You see. The thing about Vagina's is that if you bust a nut in them and the conditions are right; She's going to end up the duff. But you probably knew that already I guess. And so everything got thrown back in the garage for another few years.
  13. Disclaimer, I don't excuse myself for my behavior. I'll split this up into two parts, Before kids and after kids. Cause that's what'll stop you building kiddos. Children. You like cars? Unless you are swimming in cash; WEAR A f**kING CONDOM. (My 4 children are my blessing, I wouldn't have it any way; Just giving real advice) So a good half a decade or probably more, I purchased an R34 GTT. Always been a S chassis boy prior, Wanted to do a big power SR20 skidder with an RB box behind it...Till I drove a big power SR. They ain't exactly fun, So can only get so much out of 2.0L and 4 cylinders before it becomes a shit car to drive. Then thought about RB converting my 180 at the time, Put the pen to paper and decided the wiser move would be to just buy a Skyline. At the time, Japanese cars were still cheap and Tracy Grimshaw's head didn't have so much girth. (What a mad word.) So I bought an R34 GTT. Seemed like the right choice at the time for someone who wanted a big power skidder. Motor was healthy with perfect comp, Cleaned it up and sent it for a nistune with Toshi. During the process we found the car had a Link G4 ECU; Winning! She made a healthy 190RWKW with the standard snail on 98. Can't remember the boost guys, But don't bother doing this with a standard OP6 turbo; It'll shatter as I found out laying a good 2nd for the boys, Cause you DDTB nomsayin? So after the f**k about on that, I got motivated to build that drift car. Kept it real simple; - 1000cc Injectors, Kinugawa TD06 W a Garret 60-1, Walbro 460 In-tank pump and E85. Got Mick's Motorspot involved for the tune. She made 310RWKW like a baws. I through on a full adjustable steering kit and sat the car on some Blitz ZZR coilovers. I have purchased pretty much all coil overs for my vehicles over the years; For the couple extra quid; Get the Blitz ZZR's. They ride perfect in every way I want. Soft, But not too soft. Firm enough to feel the road. Good travel and handles well when the car's weight is shifted around suddenly. Got some basic aesthetics for the car. Remember kids, OEM+ wins. (Phone camera's also got good). First off. I know. I fuggin know. Dat seat height. I'm a big boy. This thing was a blast to drive, I can't remember what year it was but I was going to try taking my drifting more seriously (Yes. I was going to skid this thing. How f**king insane is income when you don't have children) but then the head lifted from my go happy right foot and the missus pregnancy test showed positive... Which contrary to what I initially thought; Positive does not mean all good. What a shit time for something like this to happen! I'll never get the car done! And so she got put into the shed (Considered selling a few times but couldn't) and our friend Tracy... Well she got kinda popular among us. The police started to bully us. Defect stations were everywhere. Every "Mitsubishi WRX" was on today tonight getting defected. Now I am not saying that I am directly responsible for Sydney's lock-out laws, But last time you could have a good night at The Cross with bag'n'the boys; This car was running. Co-incidence? I think not.
