You should give the 18's the heave-ho and get a set of 16'' momo's. It would look sweet.

Got any front on pics of your car?
you should try and chase up a polarizer and a set of NITRON decals. They are missing arn't they?

335kw is 450hp. which would go close to 600hp at motor
have u done a compression test. would be interesting to see the results after so much punishment and power thrown at it

what eva get ova it.
i was talking about when adam had the gt 30 and was making 280kw.
and if you could gain 90kw from a manual i think every one would have one.
and when tilbrook dyno centre changed there 31 skyline wagon from auto to manual they only gained 18kw.
And i will be going for a 10.99-11.2 now as i know how it hooks up. Because i was dumping it a 5,000rpm and wasn't spinning.
Good day

330rwkw in an auto would be good for a low 10...

still doesn't make any noise. Don't know how it hasn't i have spun the power steering bet up side down twice when i have missed gears, hard revs.

Haven't done a comp test yet. would be lucky to get 100ml of oil in catch can after two full nights of thrashing.

Got full ported head ready to go on in a few weeks

engine bay is completly stripped out getting all lumps and holes sorted out and another new spray.
