Looks good. A tad dark on the tint imo, but hey, if you don't reverse into garbage bins then it's all good.

so that radiator hose will last all of about 5 mins like that

Yeah im cutting the neck off the water outlet and welding it back on at a better angle... Plus manifold is getting ceramic coated for extra heat protection...

Well, it's not really that much of a shock. Irrespective of how sensible the infamous Pulsar build was, those guys sunk a good amount of time and cash into it. In comparison, bolt-in engine swaps and turbo conversions are a hell of a lot less effort, and are just a cash obstacle.

Thanks for noticing the effort we put into cars... This car is just a money pit... Even with a lot of the work being done by myself... Cant wait to see the finished product...

I don't know if you've ever driven a car with a screamer pipe, but it isn't fun and doesn't really suit a luxury GT cruiser like a Soarer either, unless your idea of a good time is to stay off boost 24/7 when driving in the city. In the two weeks I had to tollerate driving with the screamer pipe that came with my external wastegate (had no opportunity to get it plumbed back in), I have never driven my 180sx slower. Scaring children and old folks on the sidewalk gets old quickly, and you just end up driving around wondering when a cop will jump out of a bush and pork you in the arse :(
