Gearbox was ****ed. Returned it to the jap wrecker so now on the hunt for a new one...
It had a snapped of clutch pivot ball.. upon removal for replacement, it turned out the thread has been re drilled and tapped for a bigger clutch pivot leaving the stock nissan one too small... didnt want to **** around with it, just asking for troubles.

Made a guage facia in my sunnies holder with my spare calais seat material.. to suit 3x 2 1/16 autometer guages coming soon.
Traced the shape onto 12mm ply, cut the holes, thin layer of foam then trimmed it tight in material with the staple gun.



The holes look rough, but that just how the material sits... once the guages are in itll be smicko

If anyone wants one done in blue let me know me and ill knock one up for you....genuine material 100% match

Happy snaps:

Im 7 months out from my full licence. Im stuck deciding what setup to run.
Itll either be a hi flowed t3 and a TX1 cam on 14psi.. see around 220rwkw
Or i go all out and run a LT10 with a GT30/76 and kill myself straight away with 300rwkw+

My car at the VL meet up just gone... One of 43 cars



Gauges status: in and sexy

Dropped the MF5 out of the VL last night with help from my new best mate Con who saved my ass with his cordless rattle gun. Well more like i was helping him. Top bloke, his cars just a n.a nugget mobile.

Picked up a 83L drop tank and working on a 90L if i can get one.

Completed my r33 conversion with all my bits there. Got the fly machined for a 4 pack of JD and coke haha. Goes in tomorrow.

Nah hi flow T3 brooo. Its all the clutch will take. Once i get bored of that ill forge it with a hi mount 35/40 and a jimmy b clutch yeeeeeaaa.


Got my R33 box in. Its about 10 sexies shifts so nice just running the clutch in now.

Big shout out goes to dimi and rowan who sorted me out with getting the box in! Had some minor issues with the speedo drive but sorted it out.

R33 vs. MF5



Had to push the car into the shed cause of the rain (not fun)



Didnt bend the gear shifter, sits just a few mm of the h/brake in second but the gear boot doesnt fit over the shifter. Going to chop & fabricate it so its fits inside the gearboot and sits perfectly upright in neutral (stock look)

To be honest, I couldn't be happier with my t3 high flow at the moment. I'm making good power with mine at 14psi and I could probably push it to 20 yet! I just want to do a cam upgrade first

They honestly sit perfect now though, positioning and all.


Sanded back and painted my drop tank. Havnt done the straps yet.. will tomorrow


Some colour


3" dump back exhaust i picked up.. hanging from the roof of the shed for the next 6 months

Haha thanks mate !
Itll have 300kw plus the rest one day... I forgot to mention i confirmed to buy a turbo conversion kit. T3 highflow with a rebuild recite plus brown tops, ecu etc etc. The guy is off this forum, bought a few parts including the exhaust of him. He's going to hold onto it for me for a few months until im ready to buy it, top bloke! On ya Nukz.

With my motor, itll get a freshen up.
New rings, pistons, honed bores, machine the head + ARP studs, nissan head gasket and a TX1 cam. Good compression and a fresh motor...
The reason i bother to do this, one day ill pick up a n.a S2 calais to dump the above motor into and build a motor for the while car with a 35/40 and forged window winders and ****[COLOR="Silver"]

---------- Post added 13-04-12 at 20:33 ----------



Picked up my intercooler and piping off my good mate jeremy from brightline fabrications tonight.. top bloke. Came off a car he bought for parts, and he polished it up for me, like a mirror. Also notice the dose pipe in the picture.... hectic! haha

He also made this piece for me



Cuts into the radiator hose and the auto meter water temp sensor screws into that for a 100% reading, and this way the factory gauge will still work. The factory ones even snap off and all things bad when you try to take them out...
If anyone wants one of these let me know, easily organised.

Attempted to put drop tank in today.

Everything was going swimmingly until it came to put the new breather hoses one. On one end the fitting was 10mm and i bought appropriately sized hose. When i came to put it on the other end, i realised it was a 15mm fitting.
I tried everything to get it on.. heating it up, wd40, flaring the hose.... (by this time the shop was closed of course and it was getting dark). It would not go on, i was fighting it for ages and i had the the ****s major kicking **** over!!!!!!

More hose monday and it should pop right on it
