Its been a few months.. How about an update aye! Don't know what happened to all my other pics but any way ill post up some freshies now. Ok so the car has change drastically over the course of this year. Since the car pretty much looks how I want it now I decided it should go how I want it to aswell.

So as for drive line work the car has:

- R33 gtst 5 speed box
- NPC 5puk clutch
- Reconditioned Tailshaft
- Full spool VLT diff w/ 3.9diff gears, 31 Billet axels shortened 50mm in overall length

I have also purchased some ET streets which are currently on the car with custom 8" chasers, but all need to box the rear trailing arms before they bend lol
Engine work is still very basic with only a cometic head gasket and arp head studs but will be receiving the following very shortly.
- ARP headstuds
- Cometic 1.8mm headgasket
- Nitto oil pump w/ crank collar
- ASR Race sump
- Custom catch can

The plan for the car at this point is to squeeze as much as I can from the n/a motor as possible with out braking it right off the bat. The mod list will be as follows.

- 2000cc bosch injectors
- twin 044s w/ surge tank
- Walbro lift pump
- CPC street inlet manifold
- custom intercooler piping
- 3.5 dump pipe w/ 3"exhaust
- GTX 3582 w/ internal waste gate still on the standard vl turbo manifold.
- Haltech ps2000 w/ wideband and IQ3 dash

The car will be running on E85 for the time being until I can save up for a flex fuel sensor.
Hopefully its running within the next month or so as Id like to debut it at my good mates wedding in september. Some of you may remember my old red executive that I had which he actually sold to me, which was my first VL :P

A lot of photos are scattered as my old phone died, But Ill try and keep it order.
So how about some *** pics!

Firstly the r33 box went in along with the new clutch, which will hopefully last.




How the GTX setup looks (I had to use 2 spacers, shave the engine mount and the block a tiny bit)



Once it was finally in the car :P

The size difference between the little t3 hi flow


The new CPC inlet manifold


The new diff all finished


And it finally has callipers in the rear now


ET STREETS


Thats pretty much all thats going on with the car at this point, once I get it all going ill definitely post up plenty of photos of it. Like I said Im trying to get it all ready for a mates wedding. It still needs to be wired up and tuned aswell once all the mechanical and fab work is done.

anyway cheers nick

Sorry for the late reply, the car has only been on the road 2 months. It does have bad creep issues but the rear dump pipe setup is definitely a contributor to that. I will be getting a new read housing and external gate in the near future.

As for power figures the car made 367kw at the wheels on 28psi with a side pipe and 315kw on 25psi with a full exhaust on pump e85.

I need to raise the front of the car up a little and sort out the suspension in the front as it gets pretty twitchy when the car gets moving. Will post up some pics soon!!

Cheers nick
