And teaching myself has presented a lot of learning curve...but I don't regret any second of it after driving the car. It's all worth it. 37 minutes ago, supernova_6969 said: nice work indeed. must be awesome after pretty much making her yourself. tell me, with a t3, when does boost come on? (rpm-wise) seb yeah, there is very little actual stock Datsun left on this car....I have either touched, redesigned, or upgraded virtually every major component in the car. The ONLY thing I didn't do myself was corner balancing, alignment, and fine tuning the idle on the dyno. otherwise, it's all me. It does feel amazing having done all of the work myself. The car is a constant reminder of how far I've come in all aspects of skill. From painting skill to welding to just general and theoretical automotive knowledge....I am shocked at how far I've come.....I knew very little about cars, aside from an addiction, when I started this project. I also had NO idea this car would potentially gain magazine status.....that's fuckin' nuts. On my current setup the car feels supercharged. Full boost (granted, only 5-6psi) hits at right over 2500 rpm, and will pull strong until about 5500 rpm, when the car starts to lose its juice. It wants more boost. But I am being VERY conservative, as this is now my primary daily driver, as I find a suitable replacement for my E30 which was totaled by a snowplow this winter.....RIP girl....I miss you. You deserved better. 215 miles in. Still a car! Woot! Edited April 28, 2018 by OldAndyAndTheSea Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
