I purposely made mine blend it and boring looking so it wouldn't stand out, last thing I want is attention.

It's not even low, it's probably in the top 10% of the world's highest R33s LOL

I think this proves my point moreso than yours, this is absolutely a more sporting looking vehicle than a M340i sedan. It is boring to you as you've seen it for many years, this is the human condition 😛

Price difference brah, M340i is still dreaming territory in terms of coinage, RS4 is true drug dealer league lol

They were talking M3s at one stage which the price point is closer the the rs4 and then both can see who has the bigger stone attached to their resale value

Updates to the intake department, using an old intake pipe as a guide. That's going too 😁

Yeah I know, could easily reuse it blah blah blah but I want to sell it as a kit with my old intake cover, catch can setup.

Just final mock ups before it sees the powder coater with the subframe.

As someone who is just starting to adapt the JSAI alloy airbox into my car..... and realising how 'fun' its gonna be.

What's the bottom line of this look like, the one that follows the chassis, lines, etc?

doesn't really line up to anything down there, I'll snap up some photos when I get the car back :)

So... how does it seal, and not just pull air from the engine bay via the gaps?

there's no real "seal" however there is sufficient air to be drawn from the OEM side mount piping holes, guard, etc.

Would be great to fully seal it and have it suck only chilled external air, however it's a turbo car, with a decent FMIC so I'm not too concerned with the compressor inlet temperature, just as long as the intake air temp is sub 40~50 degrees at full tilt with awful amounts of boost thrown at it.

You don't need to "seal" an airbox, you just need the air coming in to positively pressurise the space enough to stop hot air being drawn in. 

Just having an air guide can be enough on its own depending what's feeding it.

Surely having a pod in there removing all of the air in the box will cause it to draw from around the edges? I guess not with an air ram/scoop but the proof is in the IAT's really... but as discussed _less_ important on a turbo car as your intercooler is doing most of the work. But it helps to lessen the load the cooler must do though.

    • Thank you for sharing your experiences. I believe your post means nothing to anyone or any of the businesses you mentioned. It’s probably better we all thank these businesses for providing us with products and solutions that you see nowhere else in the world. They work hard to provide us with those solutions, don’t shit on it. A business like xanavi probably has the right to charge 1100 USD for an SD card upgrade for CarPlay on the GTR, better than going to Nissan to be charged 4000+ to just get done local maps update right? Considering the car is 200-700k, I think it’s all due.  How did you save someone 1000 dollars by linking the SD card upgrade and then linking an irrelevant product that they got the idea from? You’re misleading people. You’re then making someone think that the box does the job? You idiot.   About the lesser knowns, what makes you so sure that those businesses people aren’t appealing to customers in their location/market? (AUmark) You seem to not only have a problem with miscommunication but also not being able to read. I just jumped on nifty city’s website and it’s in your local currency, where did you get 1100 USD from? It says 699 USD, or 1000 AU (your currency). They also run discounts? Your peripherals need improvement.   Grom v line has been on the game for longer than you’ve had interest in the so called “Japanese market” that you know so much of.    This post is not really helpful to anyone in the market looking to buy a unit. Let people run their business and customers to decide for themselves.   Regards, An interested customer.   
    • Small addition to my post above. This morning I noticed my door ajar light was turning on occasionally when it shouldn't. I had a stray 8vdc being fed back from ground side with key out. After taking a closer look at the original cluster, I noticed nissan was actually aware of this as they added a diode. I tossed in a 1N4007 and it's resolved. 
    • New coolant overflow for the r32.the good old boys in blue that let me rip around with a 4” exhaust no issues at all. We got it good over here like that. 
    • Hey Ben those are some extremely wicked numbers for 22psi and the kill tune on e85 at 800 probably feels great. What are running for a gearbox? nice work mate glad to see the blue is working proper. Send me your base timing map when you get a chance I want to see how cranked up you got it over 16 psi, cheers
    • The little 10mm bolts are holding for dear life. 30 psi on ethanol/meth injection and things are feeling fricken spicy now! I hope the boost gods are with me at this power level feels like my face is going to the back of my head now.
