Yeah makes pretty good torque, yup just on 98 octane. Could do a heap more hp/nm on ethanol, but 600hp is more than enough :D

Yeah just on 98 octane. Would like to make a lot more on e85 but not really necessary for a road car lol

Wheels and tyres are enkei rpf1 18x10.5 with 15 offset. Hankook rs3 tyres all round. 265 front, 285 rear.

The (semi) finished result of the wide body kit I needed to fit the big wheels and tyres I wanted to run. Clearances are pretty tight and there was a little guard rub, and the luxury sports stuff kiiiiiinda fits ok. Will be taking it for lvv cert as it is, then chase down a genuine gtr bumper and front guards to roll out instead of the fibreglass stuff that's currently in place. and some rear guards will get made up to tidy up the rear some more.

Looks ok for now though. Kinda staunch with the riveted rear fenders and wheels barely fitting in lol






Kiwinats was good fun. Its always a laugh to catch other cars by surprise coming onto the straight during cruise sessions and watching their cheeky grin of confidence disappear the same time I do  :P :P

Have been pretty lazy with the car as of late, I did however manage to fit up the sump guard/bash plate that a friend of mine had made up out of 8mm alloy plate. This thing is SOLID haha, and not too heavy either, im guessing around the 8-10 kilo mark, but Id rather have it and not need it than the other way around.

It mounts to a 40mm solid alloy bar that bolts to the underside of the subframe behind the sump, which also gives me a solid jacking point I can lift the front of the car with, and then bolts to some box section steel I had welded into the castor arm mounts. along with some bits welded to its sides to prevent the edge of the plate catching on anything, this should hopefully protect my big sump from anything trying to open it up like a tin can haha!



Next up is sorting out the boot floor and new battery box, GTR bonnet, grille and headlights to go in. :)

does your sump sit very low? did you lower your engine on the mounts or do you just have a massive sump?
