So I got the GTT seats in. Little bit of modding but nothing to crazy. They do sit high though which is shit as Im going to struggle wearing a helmet in the car.... But they are way more comfy. We'll see how I go might end up just changing to gtr seats 😂 

Black braid is a nono for hot side plumbing, remade it with some stainless i had laying around.

Mounted emap sensor on firewall, decided to not use the copper and just do it all in hardline should look a bit better. 

Plumbed up the gate and turbo as well with all new -3 braid. Need to get a couple more fittings tomorrow for the BOV and plumb that up to the intake mani. I marked out the BOV position and pulled the bumper off and cut the hole for that. Taking the car down to the shop tomorrow to be fabbed. Hopefully can knock it all out tomorrow then i'll drive it home and rip it all back apart and send to coating.

Hopefully get it back from coating in a week and then I'll put her back together and we'll chuck her on the dyno and see what sort of boost we can get out of her. And then turn it up and see what EMAP is doing (fingers crossed will take around 38-40psi).

Took her down to the shop this morning and managed to get most of it done. BOV is on and plumbed up, comp cover has been tweaked along with the dump pipe. Mani welded up for the EMAP outlets and made hardline up today for it. Just need to wire it up now and we'll be good to go. 

Now to pull it all back apart and get it sent off for powder/ceramic.

Currently on holiday up on Fraser drinking beer and catching fish 👌

Ripped the car back apart a couple weeks ago and sent it off to be coated. Should look sweet when i get it back in. Ill pick it up on Monday when I'm back in Brissy and start putting it all back together. 

Also have a new set of coilovers lined up that I'll pick up at some stage. Going to be on the hunt for a gtr diff/axle setup as well if anyone knows/is selling one. 

Probably end up putting it on the rollers and setting up the staged pumps and see what boost the new manifold setup gives us. Once we're ready for power runs we'll put it on the hub and see what she will push out 💪

Ordered a few goodies today. Got a Ross P/S pulley which they make for gtrs to run an r33 p/s pump with the 4pk belt so no modifying the pump and no more 3pk belt. Also got a PRP AC relocation bracket which pushes the a/c forward and jumps onto the same belt as the power steer. So it wont be overdriven on an ATI balancer and no more flicking or breaking AC belts. 

Finally ordered some stuff that I need for my gearbox. Pressure sensor and a motorsport fluid temp sensor. Once I have them I'll be able to finish off my gearbox loom and have it all hooked up to the ECU and finally be able to test the dump valve out...

Ordered black heat wrap for my dump pipe too. Decided to change it up and go to black should all blend in now.

Ordering a Syltech IACV as well. Currently not running anything and apparently these new valves are pretty good so we'll see how it goes. Need to decide if I'm going to atmosphere or to the fresh powdercoated cooler pipe 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Got back to Brissy on Saturday arvo. Had a nice morning drive down Fraser. Could nice photos.

On nightshift this week so went and picked up mani and pipes yesterday and spent a few hours putting it all back together. Came up pretty good, i just need to get a new radiator setup and paint it black as well 😂

Everythings back on except dump pipe and gate/screamer now. Have to wait until the heat wrap arrives that I ordered. Have new crimpers coming to terminate my pressure sensor plugs so need to wait for them before I can finish wiring emap up. 

So cars not far off running, ill probably just wait until I get the a/c relo and p/s pulley before I do drive it around. Will have to dump the p/s fluid and pull the pump off so I can change the pulleys and while thats out will give me better access to the a/c compressor. 

Fingers crossed everything arrives for me this week 😬

Heat wrap turned up on Thursday so I got to work on Friday and wrapped the dump up. Didnt get any time to put it in yesterday, had to keep the boss happy and get her some stuff. Installed a new clothes line for her so she can dry my clothes 😂 Good for painting parts too. 

Today put the gate and screamer on and plumbed all the lines and hoses back up and put her all back together 💪 

Had to get a fix so went for a quick spin to see how the new mani goes. 2nd pull I saw 22psi on the dash which is amazing. Hopefully I was full throttle but definitely better than the 30psi it was before! Single gate sounds mint too. Hopefully get her on the dyno soon and give her a tuneup and get these pumps staged as well.

Parts finally rocked up from Golebys after 2 weeks... Ross p/s pulley, Syltech IACV and fluid temp sensor. PRP A/C relo kit was here so started putting it all on today. Think the belt is lined up ok but we will see once ive got the P/S back on and a belt on it all.

Tomorrow I'm going to head down to mates shop and press this new pulley on and crimp my emap plug so I can finish wiring that up.

Need to find a solution to put a new p/s resi in that will take AN fittings. I think I'll weld a fitting onto the pump for the -10 line and I think ill go all the way back to the rack for the 10mm line and run a new hardline up in -6. 

IACV im struggling to find a good spot to mount it that will still give me good placement to run hose for. Will look more into that once I've put the p/s and emap back together.

Then I'll be onto finishing my gearbox wiring loom. Thats going to come down to what fittings I can find that will be suitable for the job as I need to put an port adapters in for the pressure sensors.

Engine bay is looking great. 

I used an aeroflow resivour as has 2 ports on bottom. No need to weld fittings on power steering pump. An AN turbo drain can be used for one part with the holes elongated and there is an adapter for the other. Will get a picture of what I used on my car.

Thanks mate! 

What have you used for the line that goes to the rack?

    • thanks for the reference pictures ben. hope all is well good buddy. hope the gtr's arent sucking the wallet to bad these days like my car is lol....cheers mate  
    • VP race fuel like VP 109 ron unleaded is a waste of money compared to E85. Just go flex fuel setup so you can run on pump unleaded or E85 all without draining tanks or switching tunes. You go VP race fuel you will have to change tune when using it, then change back to a pump unleaded tune. VP109 for example will support about the same boost and timing increaes as E85, but it requires the afr's to be a lot leaner than E85 but richer than pump unleaded.
    • Whats your budget? Maybe call Nispro in QLD for quote - they build a lot of VQ and have a turbo kit in development - but id say at least 20k to do it right - oh actually maybe do LS swap will be cheaper but....hmm  im a purist - so id rather stick to VQ35DE or whats the point lol.... just my opinion - do what u want. its your car  
    • Ok sorry I should rephase my question. But good answer haha.  How can I make 400whp that isn't using nitrous. 
    • dyno run would be on VP race fuel or e85 / e98, E85 is not easily accessible by me. Closest pump is 30 min in a direction I do not travel. So while I will go out to get it. It will also get pump gas 93 octane is highest avilable in US so overall power will be down if mix fuels  e50, e30, e10 ect
