  1. Thank! I actually have a German Shepherd and a Beligian Malinois, definitely a safe home! Yes, I'd never done it before so it's not perfect but neither is the rest of the car so it kind of fits? lol. Need to wetsand it. Eventually I'll have the whole car repainted in QM1 again but that's after the go fast bits I was actually going to do that but I ran out of time, big care show this weekend that I needed to have the bumper finished for. Thanks!
  2. When in doubt, self tapper. I'll figure out a way to properly repair it soon but I just needed a solution before this weekend.
  3. Took me a while but I did it all myself, and I've never done any sort of body work. It's not perfect. I'll definitely be redoing it when it gets a little cooler outside. But here it is! Also, going to have to trim the turn signal housings a bit, they won't fit in the bumper/bar because of my FMIC. That's a project for another week.
  4. Finally got around to repairing and painting the type M front bumper I bought, was putting it on tonight and there seems to be a few issues. The drivers side fits really well, but the passenger side has a pretty big gap below the headlight. The passenger side front fender was a little tweaked where the bumper bolts so I got that straightened back out but that didn't help the fitment under the headlight at all. Could I use some shims to raise the bumper up a bit and get it to fit better? Also, thanks to my HPI front mount, my turn signals don't sit all the way in the bumper so I'll need to figure that out. Probably need to cut them and then plastic weld a piece in to reseal them.
  5. There no telling how long mine was doing it before I bought it. Felt fine to me before I got rid of it but the guy I had look at the car was really persuasive about it being an issue. I miss the sound so I'll probably go ahead and block the pipe off again. There was a coke cap in there, I'll just shove it back in and send it.
  6. When I imported my R33 it had some turbo flutter. I always loved that sound and associated it with Skylines. I took the car to a shop, they looked it over, and one of their biggest recommendations was to take the block off the blow off and stop it from making the noise. We did so, car feels "better" but I think that's because the car was also just running on wastegate pressure and now it isn't. I'm just trying to get a consensus of how bad this is for the turbo? Seems like every video I watch has opposing opinions. Can't get a solid answer. Motive says one thing, TRC says another, MCM says something else, MCM2 says another. If it's not going to kill the turbo I'm going to bring back the dose. If it is then I'll stick with the pshhh instead. I'm just totally new to turbo cars. I'm happy either direction, but somewhere deep in my soul I'm itching for that sweet stututu. Video is the day I brought the car home, and how it sounded then. video0.mp4
  7. ok, I'll shoot grab some pics of it tomorrow morning!
  8. No, didn't grab any. I have it all as one piece though if taking a pic of that would help you?
  9. So, I got a brand new Haltech Platinum Pro, Haltech wide band, and Haltech boost solenoid at a steal. I know I'll need them next year when I start really building the car, but are there any benefits on an otherwise stock motor, stock turbo, stock fuel system car that would make it worth installing now?
  10. Replaced my stock clutch fan today, and deleted the carbon canister. The stock fan, as you can see in the picture, had 4 big cracks and spider web cracks as well. Replaced it with a GK Tech fan. The vacuum lines going to the carbon canister were cracked and brittle. I was getting some breaking up past 4500-5000 RPM (I'm guessing since my tach once again doesn't work unless it wants to). After I deleted it and all the lines, it now pulls smoothly all the way up to roughly 7000 RPM. Hopefully getting the Type M bumper I bought with that front cut repaired and painted in the next weekend or two. Can't wait to get it on the car, although I'm pretty sure I'll have to raise the front a little bit.
  11. So, I deleted the muffler. Got a local shop, Countersteer, to make a straight pipe for it. 3in to 4in out the back. Looks really nice, sounds amazing. Also, got the AC working again. Ended up having to replace the compressor.
  12. It's a pretty rare factory option. I've been trying to buy one but for what they cost ($1000+ USD) I'm just going to make my own.
  13. Just purchased this front clip from a local. Finally have a Type M front bumper. Going to get it repaired and painted in the next couple weeks. Paid $200 for the whole thing. Can't find a type m bumper anywhere in the USA for anywhere near that, let alone all the other goodies that came with the cut. Also, 2 weekends ago I installed the GKtech Hicas delete kit, and GKtech clutch fan. Got an alignment last weekend. Car drives so much better now and feels a lot more planted.
