    No the RB26DET list had topped about $25,000 if I remember correctly to get it in, running, modified to my liking... etc. I've gone with a $20,000 VG rebuild instead. Got 1/4 way through it and then nothing happened with it for over a year. I've been saying this 'n' that. RB26. 2JZ. I just want it going already :p

    Yeh, well it was to go down in a 4 stage plan. Bottom end, heads/cams, injectors/turbos, ECU/tuning, as a rough guide. Got the bottom end done and it all stopped for a 'while'.... Now its all happening from Tuesday/Wednesday. There isn't one doubt. I'm also ordering everything at once so that would stop me spending my money elsewhere. As long as it's here, its getting done.

    So I finally got around to spraying the engine bay last week. Came out a treat for my first time. Pictures are from my phone so quality = shit.
