So here are my updates as promised. As I said it has all just been buying stuff (as that is the easy part)
First up is a big collection of parts
So what is in here??
Z32 MAF, Apexi superfilter with Z32 adapter, Gates Aircon and power steering belt, Track rod ends, Steering rack ends, steering rack rubber boots, full set of turbo gaskets and a t3 Flange to weld to my Greddy manifold, thermal intake gasket, nissan exhaust gasket, kemso 360lm fuel pump, reinforced clutch fork, fuel filter, oil filter, front ball joints, distributor cap and rotor, HKS and Tomei stickers, one of them small GTIR keyrings and a new key. Magnecour ignition leads and some normal brand new ignition leads.
Engine and gearbox mount set, steering rack mounts & front wishbone bushings. Superpro Droplinks.
I have spent 100's on Powerflex bushings but had a few more to get, so I used that guy on ebay (Poltorq) In fairness the engine mount and gearbox mount bushings feel just as good as the proflex subframe mounts. But the wishbone bushings don't seem as good quality. I will try them out, if I find they are not that good they won't be on for long before I get them swapped out for powerflex.
Tool Kit, this kit nicely finished my boot. I now have the boot box, original spare, spare cover and tool kit
I found a great condition dash to replace my cracked one with. The amazing thing is, this dash was in a scrap car that was sitting in a field that had no rear hatch or rear windows on it for a considerable amount of time.
I have heard a lot of custom 3" exhaust before, they sound good, but i have heard a lot of very loud exhausts too. I didn't want mine to be too loud and i have some experience with Vibrant parts. With a lifetime warranty the quality is amazing. The sound their muffler makes too is really deep. With 2 silencers and a muffler this should be a very subtle great sounding exhaust. I hope anyway!! Also some flanges and gaskets to go with them. Topped off with a 3" tail pipe. (Flexi section is on its way!)
Stripped wishbones, partially sanded down
Bolts before and after I put them into a tumbler with Bicarbonate soda to finally clean them before plating them.
A full set of front and rear Nismo Struts!!! A very very lucky find!!
Finally a fully forged engine!!
