I have a Power FC and hand controller, HKS oil cooler kit and tomei expreme manifold in my wardrobe waiting to be fitted,

But not sure how far i want to take the SR20, Having delusions of grandeur about either a forged SR or the Lewis Engines RB30 combo's..

I have a checkered past with nissans and im fairly set on doing this the right way the first time, which will mean a lot of $$, but im not interested in doing things in half measures like i did when i was younger!

 

I live up towards walcott st, so if you see my car parked up feel free to introduce your self!

 

Are there any cruises or meets happening??

I live behind the astor cinema on beaufort street :P

 

silviawa cruise is every first wednesday of the month

 

And I believe there's a performance car cruise on 10th jan, sort of like a major meetup that has a separate meet for nor and sor

 

1015 meet and 1045 leave on both nor and sor meet points then meetup somewhere in the middle, location are still to be confirmed

Randomly, i moved from Darwin and the car is coming from VIC.

 

Decat...all the kids are doing that shit these days?! emissions are for greens party members..Was like it when i bought it officer, i swear.

 

Best thing is im maintaining and interstate license and the car will have interstate rego...:)

Heard many jobs have been halted due to rio tinto... are you affected?

Luckily, no. the company i work for is still fairly small scale at the moment, which wasn't ideal until the financial crunch.

Now it a lot better. We dont owe millions of dollars to banks for equipment etc, initially we used third party contractors for every thing till the viability of the mine was tested and it seams to have worked in out favor.

 

Lucky, other wise i would have been working back in perth! i love the place even though im very new to the area, but i enjoy the remote lifestyle.

 

Any other perth locals feeling the crunch? i know a few guys who were in to the banks for massive mortgages, cars etc who are in a spot of bother now.

type x kit and vskfs are an almost unbeatable combo, 25mm spacers on the rear and maybe 5-15mm on the front + dumpage and silght guard roll would make this perfect :D

Just wanted to post up an update about the car and its status:

 

Currently in tas (yeah, tas) getting rego, sorted by SP-Garage, following rego getting this list done at SP Garage:

 

Fit and tune power FC (nothing complex, basic map till i decide on cams/turbo combpo+300zx afm)

20mm spacers on the back

15mm spacers on the front (has 8mm slip on right now, so bin that)

Fit HKS oil cooler

New pads. Bendix suck balls.

Full suspension setup, balance and alignment - Trying to get a good street/track balance.

 

Also speaking to Topstage about a TypeX front lip extension.

 

So thats about it for now. car expected to ship as soon as SPG so their thing.

yeah, can be a bit shit. i work a 2/2 roster where i dont even leave site. only leave to go to the airport, so i dont see much else. some of the scenery can be captivating, but that dies off too!

It pays the bills and supports the bad habits....cars, beer and so on!

 

Cant imagine there are many imports in karratha? or you fifo?
