id sell it, and buy an r32.

then id start modding.

Buy a GTR

I'd take both pieces of advice and add both together - buy a R32 GTR. :wave:

Otherwise figure out what you want from the car first then start buying appropiate parts. Otherwise I'd so something like this

$1500 - PFC + Tune

$2000 - Tein Super Street Coilovers

$1000 - Whiteline goodies: swaybar, camber kit, castor kit etc.

$1000 - Brakes: rotors, pads, fluid, cylinder stopper etc.

$1000 - Injectors

$300-400 - Z32 AFM

Rest of the money use to choose the appropiate turbo setup. This doesn't include labour cost for all of the above so make sure you keep that into account as well.

It all depends on what you want out of ur engine doesnt it.

FMIC

Pod (CAI + Heatshield as well)

EBC

PFC or aftermarker managment perhaps

Upgraded Clutch for power increase

Fuel Pump

Injectors

Turbo (perhaps 2540 or 3037)

Headgasket

Forged Pistons if u wanted.

** tune for the above parts ** $$

What about suspension and brakes though.

Perhaps new rotors / pads

Coilovers or replace worn out componets at least.

Prob more you can do.. but not to much money left after that i would imagine.

Ok, things that are at the top of the list.

Hi flow..

FMIC

PFC

was also thinking about an engine kit from topracing

Stage 3.

CP pistons and rings

Eagle H beam connecting rods

Nissan gasket kit

Tomei metal head gasket

Nissan water/oil pump

Gates racing timing belt

ARP main and head studs

ACL Race main bearings

ACLrace connecting rod bearings. All for $5k

No need.. The engines are tough.

Slap a thicker headgasket on to it, while its off drop a set of 260dur cams and springs in to it, may as well as you do have 10k to 'blow' :O

Springs are iffy.. .Some are fine with 20+psi others begin floating at 20psi.. So its a small outlay while the heads off.. Hell while its off you may as well give the head a tidy up, light port/polish valve deshroud. :)

While thats being done you'll be waiting for your:

Injectors, PFC, exhaust, fmic, pod and box to land at your door step.

Drop a gt30r .82 internal gate on to it and dial in 20 odd psi.

Possibly have the stock exh. manifold extrude honed while your there. Sly33 has just done this and picked up quite a bit of flow through the manifold, it shall be interesting to see how the increased flow is reflected in the 'real world'.

Note I've concentrated on getting air in and out of the motor, a motor is an airpump, make it more efficient at pumping air and it will make more power easier and more reliably.

With a good tune it will hold together (well they do here in Adelaide) with a bad tune it will break a piston or 6.

Remember the 5k for the parts does not include labour... The machining and labour costs will absorb at least 2.5k to do it properly.

sorry I should change it to 16 :O but 20 is a lot on std pistons you would need to run 11:1 A/F ratios. Also you would leave the rev limit at 7,000 with std rods

By running a richer mixture your essentially shifting the peak combustion pressure to a later crank degree. Resulting in less chance of detonation and lower combustion temperatures.

The same safety can be achieved with greater efficiency by running less ignition timing.

Richer mixtures at higher power levels are generally used to ensure each cylinder runs a safe afr due to poor plenum distribution and unequal cylinder reversion caused by poor unequal exh. manifolds.

Thats my view anyway. :O
