    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.

    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....

    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.
