Candy Apple red RB25/30 big power build

I bought a vl Calais turbo with crap paint, straight body on stickies.

Motor rb25det standard injectors gt35.63 turbo with front mount.
Trans manual 5speed r33 with Jim berry clutch
Diff 28spline axels mini spool
Tailshaft 2 piece piece of crap all screwed
Fuel walbro in tank

The car was running rough on unknown boost

When I bought it most things worked expect tachometer or fuel gauge. They were fixed pretty quickly

So I decided to paint it. The colour CANDY APPLE RED
Came out pretty nice but not perfect.

Then I decided new brakes and wheels setup. So I got vy club sport brakes and made them fit new hub adaptors and modification to the disk. New 19 inch ve ssv wheels machines to fit vl and new tyres to clear the strut

So then got it back I've decided I'm gonna built this motor to a rb30/25 hoping for 9s.

Then I snapped the tailshaft in half and twisted the yoke. Off for a new one

So I bought all bolt on parts for now to make a bit of power before the motor comes out for all the forgies

So I bought
Greddy plenum, nizpro 740cc injectors, new wastegate 50mm turbo smart, new piping, new battery, 80mm throttle body, candy apple red engine covers, tomei Poncams.

So the build begins got all the parts on and got the heads ported and new double valve springs. And new tailshaft with upgraded heavy duty yokes new unis and cvs rated for 950hp

Just for motorvation I ran out of time to start the motor and turbo setup. So I got it tuned and running nice made ok power- 421hp on 16 psi pump fuel dyno sheet provided

Still to come are
31 spline axels 4.11 diff gears,
Gt42r on 6 boost manifold
Upgraded fuel setup with new injectors
New tomei cam gears
Forged pistons con rods and bearings in a rb30
Also maybe change to a 2 speed power glide

Few snaps of before and after... And dyno sheet with the diff gears holding it back.
