teaser of paint. getting actual pictures taken tomorrow.
This build is savage. The fabrication is unreal. i did a V-mount on mine some thing similar to yours, but your car is real top class stuff, keep it up!!
Amazing build bro is it running now?
This is perfect!
had a very good photographer come down to christchurch recently. came and took some pics of my car.
more pics here - STAYCLASSY
Good work dude looks classy in that color
That exhaust manifold is on the bat-shit-crazy buzz, looks awesome, like fingers or some shit, love Racefab's work. I freakin' hate Soarers but I love the detail work you've done here, looks miiiiiiint!
I signed up just so I could post in here Your Soarer looks amazing man, Ive got one myself and this is inspirational. Alot of work and effort has been put in and it really shows. Where did you get that rear window spoiler from, would love one myself
figured id do a bit of an update. its not finished but its close now. loads of pics. some words but mostly pics.
cut out the boot floor..
bought a flashy ecu
made up engine loom. its completely heatshrunk. what a mission that was.
made this funky bracket to mount coils behind the firewall
also picked up a pair of spare ssr type c-s.
now had to prep and paint...one of my mates dented the rear gaurd so had to fix that
prepping engine bay
cleanly fitting a vent to my bonnet. took a while to make sure it was right
put every tool i could find on it while it was drying
get some of that red stuff on some bits
some reassembly with the super safe lifting hook
i got carried away when ordering my hose and fittings...
did some deatailed future proof buisness like chucking the throttle in the lathe and cuttng a groove for an o-ring. sure as hell beats having goo or a paper gasket
made up a new guide pin for the osgiken pull push conversion kit. made from a nut and a bolt. original had its thread cracked (where the rust is)
made some high tensile studs for intake manifold. was just using mild threaded rod before.
thermal plenum gasket. also custom power steer and rad overflow in the pic
knocked up and exhaust
made some moulds up for ducting
laid some carbon
took it to get tuned. made 280hp ATW on 10psi @4000rpm before the clutch decided it would rather slip and piss me off.
brought the shitbox home and took a pic
little vid of it running to come
Love the little details
This is actually amazing!
Did the ECU/loom come with those new plugs? Got to make my own loom aswell.
Is the clutch old and worn? 280whp isn't a lot and it looks like an OS Giken unit (twin plate??) same as mine.
I'll keep an eye on this
Bet NZ is a cool place to drift
Amazing build love the Fab work.
Car looks superslick
im loving the build, its giving me inspiration to sort mine. The bay looks so good!
the ecu simply came with the wires. all 3 sensors came with their own plugs (air temp, map sensor and oil pressure) the new coils and injectors came with their own brand new plugs too. the only re-used plugs in the whole engine loom are alternator excitor, water temp, crank and cam position sensors and a throttle position sensor from a nissan leopard and that is literally the whole engine loom.
the clutch is annother fun part. i always tell people to never ever buy a used clutch. and in a moment of brilliance what do i buy? a bloody used clutch. its just worn and it slips. and no 280hp is almost exactly half of what this engine will be running. i want just under 600hp. the main limitation will be the turbo. its actually a small turbo. especially for the 3l bottom end. but thats okay as i want a super tourqey always on boost engine. it made 10psi (wastegate spring pressure) at something rediculous like 2500rpm. tuner says it will have wicked low down power but choke up the top end. which is fine.
So so so so so sooo sick. I was starting to wonder if/how people tub front arches on Soarers.
I don't usually like soarers but i have to say, this looks awesome. What a beast! Well done man
