It's getting there. Still haven't got it tuned lol, despite having the Nistune, software and most everything else. Recently changed my diff back to a 4.08, and once I've made a proper hotpipe, I'll be set to made some power. Had too little time tbh, moved house and got the flu.

Yeah moving house is a shitload of work especially if you're sick,
that's sick on the 180 sounds super close then, whats your kw goal?

I actually got lucky (still unlucky of course) and came down with the flu the day after I finished moving house and had unpacked/stored a few things.

Don't really have a kw goal to be honest; I got a Hypergear ATR SS2 to match my engine's CR since higher compression needs a bigger turbo to avoid issues, and that unit is rated to 500HP on Stao's website. Chances are I'd need bigger cams, E85 and a bigger fuel pump than a Walbro 250 (or whatever it is I'm running) for that, and I can't really be bothered with that when there are no E85 pumps near me, I already have a fuel pump, and the NA cams I got off a friend during the rebuild are a good match for my CR.

I'd probably be ok with 200kw to be honest, having been driving the car on 1/4 throttle and shifting at 3500rpm for months, so whatever it makes is fine with me. 150kw? 250kw? Who knows. Chances are I'll blow something up whatever I make lol.

What I really want to do is fix my AC blower motor wiring (I think a wire is broken internally), route the air runners around my popup cluster and regas my AC before we reach summer. Priorities...

Hahah yeah but honestly when are we going to say no to a time that makes sense to upgrade to e85 and bigger cams etc, :P
In my opinion I would run what you have there and add stuff later if it isn't your daily or you're the type of person who says they'll finish something in a night and follows through, lol.
You won't blow it up, it's built well and I'm gonna throw a guess of 265.5kW to wheels exactly :wheelchair:

At least there's a brightside to the sickness, consolidation is having shut down murphey's law lol
Do what's needed most/fun to do first then you'll be in the mood to finish the rest, that's how I work haha

fitting r32 gtst cluster into s13 dash
Posted Image

Little brackets and zip ties. This is held in by the r32's chassis originally in a 1/4 open metal circle bracket. Since im using branded strong zip ties and the same gauge metal as the stock holder i assume this will be fine. If not it shouldn't be a huge problem to fix anyway. Fingers crossed.
Posted Image
s15 brakes bought
Posted Image
cleaned, serviced and painted. Just used heavy duty floor cleaner and disassembled pad assembly and wire wheel/greased pins. Piston boots look and feel very good condition so left em.

Also installed fuel tank & neck. Still need pump to go into the cradle and new rubber hoses from tank to hardlines (200mm odd at rear subframe)

we've all had sketchy jacking moments, don't lie :D
This was to get height for handbrake cable installation, success and I'm alive so we'll try not to jack like this again :P

lil bracket made from 3mm ally sheet for handbrake cable

Welded lower support bar on, my welding's getting decent now, looks OK and jacked the car from this point a few times and jumped on it to test strength and it didn't even flex so i assume 200 odd kilos of force is all it needs to handle

Unrelated first tattoo home job by myself :D That's some white thigh meat

Manualised steering rack, just remove the rack, fully disassemble (tonnes of guides,) cut off this bracket and reassemble with grease pack.
Posted Image
Bash and/or weld the lines, whatever you see fit, I did both
And done. Guides say this is very hard or experienced but long as you can hang on to a grinder without it getting away and have a socket set you're fine. Very simple, easy and smooth. Reduce your rack preload after manualising, then when car drives test and readjust preload to users preference.

RB20DET
rb 25 cam covers
rb26 cams
box w/ excedy HD
removed clutch fan for s chassis fitment, sorting intake and ex manis then it goes in (maybe even just intake since i can do exhaust easily whilst its in the car)
Posted Image
That's all for now but fairly sure I missed alot as I haven't been updating thread.
I'm working hard as fuck on this thing this week almost every free minute I have.
Shouldn't be long to go now. I will upload a pic of to-do list soon
Today I'm gonna be making brackets for 6" front speakers, install door cards, finish r32 cluster into s13 dash conversion, bolt in front stock seatbelts and aftermarket harnesses and a few small things more.
