    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!!

    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!

    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 :)

    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.
