And the driver side down pipe finished and installed.
New radiator underway. No filler neck as it will be filled via the header tank.
Also switched out the recirc valves for some Gen 5 raceports from Turbosmart. No real performance advantage compared to the recircs but no disadvantage (no AFM) and we're definitely going a little more "racecar" this time around. Second pic also shows tiny little 1/16" npt thread installed for an Emtron/Racespec fast response AIT sensor.
annnnnnnnnnd the radiator has been "hosed" up
Fk me... been 8 years and its still going haha
Hey hey hey there's been some driving time through this thread, too.
to and from the workshop?
Bit going on with the back end of the car now.
New exhaust hanger mounts to tuck the mufflers up high
Ditched the idea of the Nismo R33 mufflers, I came tot he conclusion they're not really in keeping with the rest of the car. I'm using SP mufflers and Ben will make the tips for them.
Coming out pretty much the same as the system that came off it. But I did want to give Ben the freedom to work backwards from the turbos and put everything where it needed to be rather than trying to meet in the middle somewhere. Prety happy with how it's coming together. Can also see where I satrted to run out of underbody spray lol. Job for another day....
Gee even bespoke hanger mounts, looking very nice Rob!
Must be getting close to drive-able now?
Ah man still a bit to do....
Fuel system, oil cooling, vacuum circuits etc... and I'm supposed to be building an EFI harness for it... but progress is progress
Finished off with some 3.5" tips.
Fun thing about doing everything this way is tip length, diaemeter, etc etc is anythign I want it to be... in this case anting to fill out the space but also keep the tips flush with the bottom edge of the bumper.
really liking all the fab work, keep it up
