    Soooooooooooooooooooooooooo the S13 went;- http://www.driftworks.com/forum/drift-car-projects-builds/188521-skids-slippery-when-dry-s13.html - Sad times :'( and in its place there grew an R32 4 door :)

    old Kinzuru car but a little worse for ware than how it was back when it was being used :/

    [​IMG]

    and when it got to me...

    [​IMG]

    so first things first. swap the Rota's onto it and see what she looks like then..

    and secondly. fuck the front bumper off and buy some goodies to prep ready for paint...give the mechanics a once over to check everythings ok, some small issues but nothing to write home about luckily..

    one of the issues:

    [​IMG]

    2 bolts missing out the CAS. other issue is theres no exhaust fitted to it, and the compression came back strange but i think ive figured out what that was. im also very unsure about the breather setups.



    but anyway, bought a GTR front bumper for it and a DMAX rear spoiler. fitted those.

    also noticed it has Greddy spark plugs while i was compression testing it. cool.

    [​IMG]

    And i was given a GT35 copy with the car. hoping to get this on there at some point and watch it implode.

    [​IMG]



    now i have to prep it for paint. not looking forward to that tbh

    Cheers, technically it is in the correct place then? it's on the inter cooler pipework which is pre throttle body? Or is it meant to go behind it? And what about the two breathers on the rocker cover? Do they just go to atmosphere/catch can or should they go back into something?

    On my last rb car I'm almost positive I had that running to a port much closer to the manifold on the cold side. I could be wrong tho. Either way anything is better than the horrid cross over oem manifolds haha.

    From factory the hose for the AAC valve comes off the j-pipe just before the throttle body.
    Your breathers can vent to atmosphere or a catch can its up to you.

    cheers for clearning that up, i thought that would be the case, ill run two pipes to let it breath away from the manifolds, after all its nice to have a clean ish bay. been doing a bit more prep this week, basically trying to get it ready for paint at the weekend, once thats painted, its time for the MOT and rest of that crap, then i can take her out and about :) (aiming for any time before DriftMatsuri)

    Lol done more to it in a handful of weeks than it had done in months. Looking forward to seeing what the outcome is!

    PS why has no one posted A Bo Moon with GTR front bumper yet? Your new colour is almost right. The internet will definitely suck you off as a result of doing something similar.

    yaaaaaaaay internet fame :p ive done it all in a week to be fair, only bits im missing are the Side Skirts which were meant to be in the post, but Brad's either too busy to text me back or is just ignoring me, cus ive not seen anything in a week.. which is usually a longer time than any courier i know of actually takes to deliver something... annoying!

    so, i might have to buy myself some skirts. expensive. VERY ANNOYED.

    you won't be buying any skirts when you already rightfully own a set, if needs be we will take a trip down and brad will cover the fuel costs and enough to buy us both a good pub meal and brew for the inconvience.

    Tell Stevie wonder to stop chucking clag at that front bumper and don't filler over bloody stickers! Lazy. As for Internet and holiday, there's only so many pancakes and dips in the pool one can eat/make
