  1. Night and day difference, if I had the money and time I would have forged the pistons by now lol. So easy to work on but the spaghetti of coolant hoses is a joke. I originally just wanted to keep it all oem and just slightly raise the boost, then I thought if I want to eventually build a TT VQ then I may as well get a good turbo. The oem manifold wont crack and had hoped the exhaust and intake pipework would all work with off the shelf stuff.... I was wrong and wish I had gone V band and top mount for easier custom piping. Also wanted it to look oem and hide the big turbo under standard heat shield (still will) but then figured I may use the 350z maf too save headroom hassle and fit it just before throttle body, not sure why more people don't as it will be better if I dont use a blow off valve..
  2. Sorry for the double posting of some photo's, loose track of what I have done sometimes. Jump from one thing to another too often. New air hammer/chisel arrived so going to work on the 350z for a bit lol, dam ball joint clevis pins.
  3. Few updates. custom wastegate bracket made, new coolant hoses,larger injectors, custom harness bar (I may do more to make it even more safe for my own piece of mind, wanted it removable for rear seat use if needed.) My custom shifter bracket is still too long so had to buy the gktech one, just need to fit it. The stupid gearbox mount doesn't line up and is too far back for the front two bolts so need to modify the rubber mount to move it forward if i can as I don't fancy just two bolts holding it up.
  4. Looking to make a wiring harness up for my s14a, I have the 350z diff and speed sensors but I need to find the male plug that fits into it and becomes part of the body harness. I can't remember if the workshop manual gives the plug types so you can order from nissan/ebay. If not and anyone is dismantling a 350z and doesn't mind crawling under the rear to cut the plug off that would be great (preferably with a bit of wire I can solder to.) Hopefully this will allow me to have a speedo in the car rather than having to use gps device. Thanks.
  5. Made some -6 An fuel lines and mounted my filter, might make a shield to protect it some more,(used my new heavy duty garden shears for this and only this lol) cleaned and torqued the flywheel and twin plate clutch, Tried to swap the heater hoses at the firewall and bought a hose kit which had every hose under the sun, (bar those ones) started to fit them and realized i would need to take off the inlet manifold... then clean it... and remove the old injectors after their screws rounded. Got nismo 555cc to go in. The oil and water line kit for the turbo is a bit long, wish I had made my own, but I think ive managed to route it of so it wont grind off stuff.
  6. Also I can now wire my stereo for hand controls which will be cool. air bags were plug and play, panic set in when american youtube video showed different connections.
  7. changed my steering wheel for a 370z one, as you can see it didn't like the cold/damp winter under the car cover then the really hot weather at the start of the month. Had to rip everything out for a clean. Might redo the headliner now I know how to remove it.
  8. Tried a test gravity run down a hill, brake works and locks the rear but the steering is awful. Track width was too close so wanted to tip. Had to cut and mount the suspension arms further out, also lowers the car which makes it look cooler lol. (however I will need to getto chop the spring in the rear to lower it.)
  9. extended the rear arm to try and get the chain not to hit anything and for the wheels to be in the right location of the body (most pictures are missing the final welds and only tacked in).
  10. Garrett don't make it easy to rotate the exhaust housing. neither is removing the old exhaust studs.
  11. wire wheeled the underside, worst job ever. Used hammerite anti rust, then zink primer x2 coats then waxoil.
  12. 350z brembos needed the geomasters drilled out to accept the larger bolt. Also braum seat will fit a 5'10" driver and no one else lol, my head is going to be below the roll cage and in a good position for me, however the missus might struggle as it wont go much further forward and it can't move back due to the roll over bar.
  13. Didn't want to use rubber grommet for the air con delete so welded the holes (near the downpipe so a bit hot for rubber) Mocking up a removable harness bar. Tried to put mounts under the rear seat arch but the fuel tank hits them so no go.
  14. Battery kill switch/added security under driver seat. Runs to the relocated fusebox in the dash.
  15. Couldn't get new fuel straps and 370z ones dont fit lol, probably going to run a old seatbelt as a precautionary 3rd back up in case the welds and back up tabs brake.
