Not sure on the paint code it was that color when I bought the shell. I do need to compound and wax it. I will eventually change it probably a silver/gray or a creme white, but that's when i have things the way i want it.

The new brakes are a lot heaver than oem ones, well not the calipers but the rotors are but I didn't weigh them. Probably would not recommend them for an sr20 swap or something. The hubs are made by AZC as well. I used many things to get my crank pulley off, in the end i welded up a little puller of my own.

Few updates on the build. Installed HID projector headlights and headlight covers. Man what a difference. Also compounded and clay bared the paint. Man I could not be happier with the results from the clay bar. Simply amazing. I had so much crap impregnated in the paint and it took it right out. I am having T3 make some custom strut housings for me, hopefully be here by wednesday. Should allow to me lower the car another 1/2 inch in the rear and keep good ride quality. As it stands now if i lowered it much more the strut is pretty compressed and ride quality is severely reduced. So we are going to move the mounting tabs up towards about an inch and see what happens. I could do this myself in about 30 mins but hopefully if it works out he can make this an option for the kit. I need to put a groupbuy together for R230 gear. The 3.69 ratio puts me at 80mph in second gear @7800. It is kinda fun to only have to shift once driving around town, but I dont think I need to do 217mph as calaculated by one of these gear calcualtors. Wish I had the downforce and balls to do it... Maybe on a salt flat. Anyway, next up is some seats and a rollbar. Then the Borg Warner EFR should be shipping.

******* sick car!

I bet you get tons of attention driving down the road! haha

 

 

Sick " " " " Z, that's for sure....

 

 

 

Consider the GTR diff for your rear end, I couldnt be happier with mine.

 

 

 

I agree 100%. My 4:11 gt-r diff works much better with the rb25det trans

Fronts are 17x9.5 4.25 bs and rears are 17x10.5 6.25 or 6.5bs. I have AZC front hubs which push out the front ~5/8ths and the rear i have the T3 R230 swap. I think i can fit 11" in the rear but i can run the track out a tad to fill the fenders.

Ehhh I dont think i have anymore than what are posted. I did weld a 12an bung on the bottom to feed the AAC and another one goes to the IAC via 2 ports on the charge pipe before the TB.

 

 

So do you have a bung on the inlet manifold to feed the AAC to a bung on the charge pipe before the TB.

 

And a 2nd bung on the inlet manifold to feed the IAC to a 2nd bung on the charge pipe before the TB.

Well a few updates.

Changing out the lips on the rear... 17x11.5

On the way to get mounted, or so I thought.

Turns out they sent 18" lips and not 17". These are actually 3.5" lips in the picture which is what i should be running. But I also have some 4" lips which is what the next picture shows. I am rocking about 3-3.5 degrees of camber on this right now. Im going to see if i can run my track in on the lower control arms but i don't think it will make much difference.

Man it looks so much better. Hopefully i can take out some camber. Time will tell.

Almost done with it. Gotta weld a bung on my intake pipe. Maybe tomorrow if I have time.

 

Eye Candy..

Hey ZTR, where did u go to get the 6 bolt flange that bolts to the r230 input companion flange? The flange im wondering connects to the u-joint on the driveshaft. Did a driveshaft shop order it for u? Where can I get one and how much? I also have the TTT high mount r230 conversion set up with moser axles. Im trying to get my vq35de powered 240z on the road and the driveshaft is my last piece I need. Any advice would be appreciated
