Havent really done one of these things before but i guess ill just wing it :yes:

Just over a month a go I bought this modified C33 Laurel off an old work mate. He had owned it for a while but decided to sell it when he didnt drive it once during a whole 12 month rego stint.

So she was a little dirty but after a little clean up came out alright.

She has the following done:

Engine: RB25DET Neo

Transmission: RB25DET

ECU: Power FC

Turbo: VG30 hiflowed on standard manifold

Suspension: Tien coilovers all round

Other mods: FMIC, 3' exhaust, Splitfire coilpacks, 640cc injectors (havent confirmed?), full cage!

All the mods are modplated and all legal (mostly ;) )

All the work was done in Japan before it was imported for my pleasure.

Couple little things I needed to attend to...like speedo not working, lack of clear on the LHR quarter and respray the front bar.

Was super happy how this thing went for a Nissan, believe it or not i didn't even have to pop the bonnet for 2 weeks!

Took it to a track day and had a blast. Beat alot of things, got beaten by alot also

Had a problem develope at the start of this week where i was loosing my clutch pedal if i didnt keep it pumped up. On investigation found the slave wasnt really sealing at all. Threw a new one in and all good again

Being the apprentice at Hi-Power Racing in QLD was time for a little touch up tune to clean it up a little. Learnt alot from that. Need to look at another turbo setup in the near future. Maxing power output at around 15psi.

Was always wondering why my left tailight was darker then the right like it was tinted. Found out on the dyno :/

Plans for the future arent too crazy. Thinking,

High mount manifold

Forward facing plenum

GTX35r

Fuel system for e85 or eflex

5 stud conversion

One thing i can say is i really enjoy something so unique that everyone can enjoy and appreciate as much as I do. It is turning me into a bit of a photo whore though. :yucky:
