    Hey guys heres a few pics of a side project i have goin on that i thought i might post as you dont see to many laurels on here :wave:
    It is already manual and 5stud with gts-t brakes

    The plans are and i already have most of it:
    Rebuilt RB20det with ACL race big ends and factory main bearings (thar just a bit nicer on the crank as they arnt so hard).
    Also ACL race ring set and Tomei steel head gasket.
    Custom stainless low mount exhuast manifold with a .64 T28 and a Turbonetics 32mm wastegate.

    Will probly just run standard injectors to start with it should make a healthy 160-180kw on 15psi
