Having some buyer's remorse 😅

Could have went towards a depreciating M2/3/4 lol.

Fark the 3 pointed swastika pos

Or sell up now and buy a 3 pointed swastika and regret?????

 

The old Datsun is gold dust, any muppet with a job can own a BMW

My 2 cents is to stop treating the old girl like a dirty bitch

Not saying to not run her hard, just saying to not treat her like a dirty slart

For some reason a bunch of n54 bmw videos have come up in my feed so I watched a few and f**k they have some issues. 

gotta spend the value of the car every year just to keep the oil inside the engine and the engine check light off and then all the body modules start throwing trouble codes up

@niZmO_Man lol not the look I'm going for, that's too IG try hard, get likes and attract fk bois look :D

 

@iruvyouskyrine Good eh? lol... the bottom end I believe had 1.2 restrictors in it, however none were blocked off (this was recommended by the shop that built my bottom end). Respray wise, it ended up a bit over $15k with the guard work (F&R), glass removal, rust work, hail work, front windscreen replacement, fitting the skirts/pods, shaving off the GT-R logo on the wing, lengthening the front lip (as the Car Mate one is too short, no joke!). I did get carried away, initially it was going to be a basic respray, then nek minnit.....

Someone tagged me in this, sad reacts only 😅

When it worked, then it didn't, then I all thought was it would have needed a simple fix, then I find the head is cactus then somehow the car gets a makeover 😅.

Then a few weeks later I find the block is cracked.

    • So….. I’ve replaced all the coils and made sure I have a spark by fitting a spark plug to one of the new coils and cranking the engine. I’ve ensured I have fuel by removing what I assume is the ‘return to tank’ fuel line and cranking the engine. So I have a spark and fuel and the car still won’t run. Any ideas? may be time to get an auto electrician out! 
    • EFI Solutions aka Taarks have a great kit just for that. Better to have facts/data before making a decision. https://www.efisolutions.com.au/exhaust-pressure-sensor-pulse-damper-emap
    • I'm not sure why you removed the sound deadener???  Don't bother with DIY remedies... this is how you can do it properly. For the lightly stained areas, just stick to a fine grade wet sand paper....and then paint over once the stain is gone. For the worst areas...especially the pitted ones...you just need to sand the rust in the localised spot working down from a heavier grit to medium grit wet sandpaper, which will get most of the rust off. It's just localised rust from the spare wheel touching the boot. Don't go to town on sanding the whole boot...not needed! Try to avoid sanding the seam sealer etc (obviously) After the rust spots are down to bare metal - use a fine brush dipped in "RUST DEOXIDISER"...and carefully apply this to the little rust areas. It's important the chemical you use is DEOXIDISER. After applying that, let it sit for a while and obviously wipe off with prepsol before it dries, and repeat 3-4 times. If you go to a panel shop they will probably be able to sell you some - as the trade products are a shitload stronger than retail products. After deoxidising the rust, scuff the surrounding paint with red scotch brite....& then you are ready to apply etch primer and then paint the matte gray colour on. Mask up the surrounding area using tape & paper..... as you don't need to paint the whole boot, just blend it in and keep the repair as small as possible. Spray can paint or spray gun depending on your level of expertise will be fine. Probably will cost you about $100-$150 in materials.  
    • Interesting. The 30/900 looks right on paper but weather it gives me enough headroom is the question. I dont have a pressure sensor in the exhaust manifold so I won't know if I have a restriction unfortunately.
    • It depends if your current turbine is a restriction or not, if it is go up to the 35, it’s it’s not then stick the 30. Also the g30 turbine wheel will flow more then your gt30 one either way you go the compressor wheel is going walk away from your current turbo
