Got some free time again today so I spent a few hours working on the car again

So I pulled out the gearbox and the clutch that was in it was in surprisingly good condition considering it's been in there since I bought it in 2003

Here's the clutch that I removed

And the nismo clutch bolted up with the "clutch aligning tool"

With the gearbox I decided to change a couple of thing that needed doing and were easier to do while the box was out

First one being the power harness which also has the gearbox connections on it, it had come undone and looked untidy, so it was replaced

and also the car had a vibration under hard acceleration and rather then put up with it feeling like a VL commodore I bought a new one and fitted it. Which was even easier then I expected it to be

So today I had some time and I did the last couple of things that needed to be done before dropping it off to get tuned

First was the a set of cam gears

And I managed to replace them without needing to take the balancer off which helped saved and hour or 2, but I wish I had of worked it out earlier and I could have saved even more time

then I drilled out a spare factory fuel rail to suit an 11mm injector 34943C53-FDD4-452A-9725-DED3A964B906.jpg

And the last thing was changed the spark plugs and when I inspected the factory coils I could see signs of arcing so I replaced them with a set of split fire coils

Ok not really related to the Gtr it self but it's living space, while the Gtr was away I decided to paint the garage floor to make working on the car nicer and easier to clean up afterwards

Before

And after, I think it look a lot better and makes the place brighter B423C3FA-5F91-44F4-9C49-5440C6E8F74B.jpg

Also the results are in, will update ASAP

Looks great. Needs some oil on it.

Technically it took 3 days but there was only about 6 hours in actual working time. It took about 2-3 hours to degrease and clean the concrete and then 24hrs to let it dry, to put a coat on took about an hour or 2 but then it was 16hrs between coats and 2 coats was enough. After that it recommends 4-7 days to cure before putting anything on it

The paint was just white knight branded garage floor paint from bunnings and a roller with a few cheap mats to put it on the floor

Grabbed the car today and the results were a little low compared to what I expected for this round result was 281kw with 1.5bar of boost and at 6,000rpm would choke to the point it no longer reved

We believe the exhaust is the culprit, basically after the drama with the engine build, I grabbed a bunch of second hand parts and put them all in there to make the car drivable. Which means the next upgrade will be building a proper exhaust that I know will never become a restriction

On a positive note it has lost very little in the way of response and makes more power down low then previously

Did the same. Unfortunately the tyres pull the paint off the floor and it looks shit.

What exhaust is on it? Has to be pretty shitty to choke it that badly.

I'll bet my left nut it's some super sexy swanky Jap Junker.
