  1. this makes me want to plan my Japan trip so much quicker
  2. had no idea that's how yours started out......can't wait to see the finished product
  3. Not much happening with the GTR, just getting her ready for the Mt. Alma hillclimb first weekend of April.....but been doing a little on my SIL80. Figured it wasn't worth starting a new thread but I'd add bits in here and there as I build her into my new fun car so I hopefully don't wreck the GTR. The exhaust on the Sil80 was a 'bitsa', typical S13 it sat low in areas and scraped on everything. So I decided to put my trade (boilermaker/welder) to good use and fabricate my own exhaust, keep in mind I haven't been on the tools fulltime in over 10 years so go easy I was a little rusty on the tig to start with but by the end I was quite happy and all up I spent less than $100 so win win.....and it sits up high and doesn't scrape on everything.
  4. Just got my Shannon's renewal in the mail ($75/month, down from $125/month) now that it's been 2 years since my encounter with Skippy. Thought I'd still try SGIC (NRMA) VVC.......$46/month with the same $40,000 agreed value but down to a $300 excess instead of $500 with Shannon's. Note I am saving $3-4/month due to now also switching over a couple of other policies to now have all my insurances with SGIC.
  5. Had my new semis slicks fitted to my RPF1's. Went with the Nankang NS2R's (18 x 255 x 35) Will give them a good testing this weekend in preparation for my next hill climb (1st & 2nd April)
  6. Daniel, I would expect -7's to see fullboost (18-20psi) by 4000RPM, give or take a couple hundred RPM... If you have cam gears already see what they are adjusted to...
  7. seriously look @ cam gears, should be getting full boost quite a bit before you currently are... perhaps also consider different dumps if they are the short splits...down the track...
  8. some people rebuild before failure...
  9. ahhhh got ya and very jealous, I wish I had one set of TE37's.....you got two Let me know if you ever want to move a set on.
  10. forced rebuild......or by choice?!?!
  11. you don't get any attessa issues running the wheel and tyre combo you do?!
  12. @okooko here's the thread. Get on it.
  13. Cheers Glyn, must've been when I was off trying to find some shade.
  14. A few pics form Sundays All Japan Day. Ran with the old wheels as my mate fitted my new Nankang NS2R semi slicks to the RPF1's and I didn't have time to refit them.......still torn between the Rays and Enkei's
  15. ye I was actually saying how many Gunmetal's were there and that there were another two I knew of that didn't make it, including yours. I'm sure there'll be more opportunities coming up
