Brendons M35 build

Thought I'd create a mini build thread on my progress with my first foray into Nissan wagon life and also a place to ask questions/path to follow.

I bought the car with f**ked coil packs so I picked it up cheap off some Indian guy. Put a new set of coil packs in and all was sweet for the next 6 months . . .

I noticed an oil leak from the passenger side that was slowly getting worse and traced it back to the oil feed line. Ah well no biggy, just an easy fix or so I thought! Having not worked on a VQ before, it wasn't until later on I discovered you can't get the line off without pulling the whole turbo :down: Since the car wasn't far off 200k and the turbo had begun the Dyson whine song, I frantically searched for a new turbo. Scotty to the rescue with a Billet Intense he had spare that got to me in 4 days.

In the mean time while the car was off the road I set about fabbing up a 3" bellmouth dump pipe.

Then followed it up with a 3"-2.5" intake pipe. (Still need to weld on BOV return bung)

And this weekend just gone I fabbed up a 3" catless exhaust system to finish it all off. I picked up 7psi of boost without touching a thing, so it's stuck on 21psi with standard injectors and pump. I've hit up Christian to see if it's possible to run the car safely at this level on 98 with his flash tune, otherwise I will probably put a hi-flow cat in to drop the boost a little.

I've got a few other things in the works but all in due time!:10_wink:

Productive day trying out my my new pipe bender. Made up a rear subframe brace to help reduce some flex because the factory welds back there horrid. :2_grimacing:

I plan on making a few more of these up, so watch this space if you're interested in one:1311_thumbsup_tone2:

You can buy a brand new one from Nissan for around $100 but your looks solid and nice welding.
