very nice mate well done.

just wondering why you didnt go the usual really skinny runners. what you are using look a lot wider than most usually run is there a reason you have chosen to use these than the skinnys.

I understand exactly where your coming from I've spent a bucket load of money over the last 3 years and now finally after all this time its all coming together really well. I've always been particular about how parts look, sit and fit but at times that can be frustrating but also very rewarding

Your engine bay and setup look the goods and also makes excellent power and thats what its all about. Taking that little extra time, spending that little extra money goes a very long way. I would have loved to see it in the flesh at nationals, maybe next time

Im using the convo's for street tyres, I've also got another set of wheels for the track. I've brought some weld magnum pro's 15x3.5 (GOLD) and 15x10 for the rear. I would like to race the car on street radials in full street trim including a exhaust.

You'll be fine, but if you do... the front seat trim is removeable so you can pay con to make a new 1 and you can keep the old 1 as a suvenior of your experience just the same when you come off a rollercoaster you can buy the pictures of you screaming your ass off LOL

The billet cover blocks off all the galleries that the standard oil pump requires. It also uses a standard nissan gasket and your able to bolt up the standard cam cover without mods. I did get fancy with it but I wouldn't do it any other way.

Jason Ghiller is making the exhaust manifold. Now that we are happy with where the turbocharger is sitting that manifold should be ready very soon.
