Ordering turbo smart race port gen V. Was going to run one on either side of intercooler piping. You recon one on the turbo side will be enough.

One on the cold side (post intercooler) will be plenty. This is how I run it. Similar location to the 2xstock ones albeit with custom piping.

Hello. Sorry it's been a while since I have updated the build. With this constant "we are open and or closed" in every state, parts are getting delayed. Was hoping to have it running in October. Now I'll be lucky to see it this year. But I did get a nice surprise from powertune today. 

Bosch 82mm DBW throttle.

Gear position sensor 

Holinger strain guage.

Haven't had anything to write about for a while. Yesterday had a large delivery if parts from Golbys. It's been a 4 month wait but things are starting to move forward again.

Also learned that my OS88 gearbox, OS quad plate clutch and JUN plenum have arrived in Australia. So I hope to have them by the end of this month.

Still waiting for PWR radiator but car is booked in for 29th of November to have everything fitted and start running the engine in. Might do a full noise run this year.

Wow, Santa has been kind to you! Best part of any build for me is the accumulation of nice bits.

I enjoy it that much I've even bought shit twice! 

Look forward to seeing it all come together for you.

Ha ha, I wish!  It’s because I’m married that it’s so long between each time I’m allowed buy stuff that I forget I’ve already bought it!  That’s actually entirely untrue.  It’s because I buy so many parts that I don’t realise I’ve already bought them! I just buy shit with reckless abandon!  If I was as good at fitting parts as I was at buying them I’d be done years ago! 😅

Hello everyone.

Yesterday was a busy day. OS88 has arrived. So has the quad plate clutch, the JUN GT intake manifold with throttle body. That last one will be going up for sale as I have since gone for a DBW throttle.

Removed and packed up the transfer case to go to TSS for a service/check over and a full strengthening package.

Would like to the JDM Garage for being able to help with parts with all of the troubles they have gone through. Glad to hear they are running bigger and better then ever. Will definitely use them again.

Also advance thanks to The Skyline Shed for being able to squeeze my work in on such short notice. 

Car will be covered with appreciation sticker for everyone who helped me.

Hello everyone. 

My last part arrived today. Garage101 9L sump extension. Looks pretty good. Nice finish. Baffles have cosworth rubber one way gates which can't jam like metal ones.

I agree. Comes with gannets drain plug. I also got to -10 an weld on fittings. For head drain and catch can drain.
