    350z gtm Twinturbo kit

    And getting started with the breather system. loosing the Stock vacum evac system i need to do away with the vacum port in the lower intake manifold, and decided to just thread it and put a plug in it. That will also do away with the sludge/Oil fumes and other gunk going back into the engine, and beeing FI the blow by will evac the sump. I'm gonna have to see how, if any, it will smell. Also, the pcv delte AN fitting, catch tank and Lines is on there way from the States.

    Me 2. And especially after just having put it all back together i'm gonna have to see how much that needs to come off when i get the new tensioner. I had decided on not wanting to spend more time on it, but that rattle drives me crazy when everything else is beginning to be so good. Then besides putting the painted parts back together, i Think the only thing left on the list is catch tank setup, rear diff brace, alignment, chain tensioner, M/T tyres and getting my worn leather seats refreshed.... and maybe... just maybe, cutting my exhaust for the fourth time to quiet it more down and knowing myself, I'll probally throw a few more things in the mix before it's spring.

    i have had a slight chain rattle on cold start ever since i Got the car. I replaced the two top chain tensioners when i did my worn cam follower. So i know there good. i never replaced the main tensioner, and even thoug it didn't Seem to have slag, i'we been Reading about the problem, and many have had a "good" main tensioner replaced, and the problem was solved. So went ahead and ordered a new one. 41£ from Nissan, and I'll go ahead and change it and see if it cures my start up rattle.

    And Interior done. Ended up putting the BTI Can gauge/screen in the cubby hole at en slight angle. that makes the screen visible, and easy to hide. Also finished the install of the new HU. I Think I'll start looking at my new catch tank setup. Does anyone know where i Can get a PCV valve hole an fitting. I've seen them on a few US sites, but maybe from the uk? I Seem to remember it's a m16x1.0 thread (to AN10)

    And finally Got my Oil filters and Got the engine fired up again. To get to the bottom of the AC problem, i created a variable table with the analog pressure readings and in/outputs i needed in the infinity tuner software. and right away i could see that my pressure in the AC was a little low, but still it all worked. Just not blowing cold air. when i turn the AC on, the low speed fan starts. So all good there. i regassed my system, and now it's blowing freezing cold air again. and with the small amount of refrigiant i had to recharge with, i Would say that the HUGE amount of gas that came out that morning was down to the system had been heavily overcharged at some point, and then it hit max pressure of 2800kpa and wented to atmosphere from the pump overpressure valve. so thats freaking awesome that it wasn't a leek or something wrong with my ecu setup. also Got my new 17x10 drag wheels for my M/T Slicks. Tyres will show up in about a month time i hope. they only just clear the rear calipers, so thats great. Ings Spoiler and front wing has gone to paint, and I'm beginning to put it all back together for the final few things on the to do list..... getting there

    And to convince myself to keep pushing, I'm putting together a build list of parts needed for my new engine build. My tt kit did 650whp on another build, Vinny ten Racing engine with uprev. Witch i Think is pretty low, considering the turbo's I Would love to beat that, but it's gonna cost me a pretty penny..... I'll post the list to get some advice and feedback.

    Back on track. getting some more small but time consuming things crossed from the list. been fed up with my old non satnav, no Bluetooth etc. Pioneer HU, i just Got a top of the Line clarion unit to go in instead. Also put the BTI gauge touch screen in the center console hole, so that the lid Can be shut, and be out of sight until needed.

    And it until a few years ago it was 180% so buy a GTR... and pay an additionel 180% of the price of the car, just to get to drive it..... Then you pay roadtax untop of that.... to give you an idea of how horrible it is, the cheapest s13 for sale in Denmark right now is about 8000£ the cheapest 350z is about 20000£, a GTR is around 100000£ and so on..... So so far I'm keeping the z....

    As i said, it's crazy. Dropped around 11k just to tax the z... It sucks so hard!

    Yeh, they are some Big beasts... i Would love to have one, i love the mechanical aspect of the GTR, i see it as a great Challenge to wrench on, and also do some Racing. But i also remember getting a r32 GTR some years back, after having had a s13 for about a year. The GTR was fast of the Line, and stable at speed, but the thrill was somwhat diffrent from a rwd turbo car.... So i see no other out than writing Santa and asking him to take the missus back and bring me a GTR instead. i'we had a good look at the finance, and having a GTR i Denmark starts with buying a GTR (funny how that works) and then paying a 50000£ Car tax just to drive it.... I @*!# you not... 50k... and that's just to tax it. The only other Way is to lease the car... but that Would not really make it my car. I might just after all keep the good old z and get that engine build and turn the boost up to 11.... sooooo, enginebuild comming up next

    Just pulled the plugs, only done 4k km. But wanted to have a look at them. Actually not bad at all. So replaced and all the Oil and water lines back on also. Just need my Oil filter then I'll start Filling in fluids and get it started back up.

    Thanks! That's also great input. I never did check that the fans turned on with the AC.

    And can't Seem to find any leaks in the AC system. tested for pressure on both Lines, and there is some, but not that much. But enough that if there was a leak, it Would... but I did find that the connector for the pressure sensor of the tank on the condensor had been rubbing against the metal under the load of the new bigger water cooler pressing up against it. And all three wires were exposed That could be a possibility. If the sensor shorted or/and reported to High pressure in the system, the AC pump "pressure release port" opens and vent's into the air out in the left wheelarch, from where i Saw the HUGE puff of gas one morning just rewersing out the garage... I'll have to put it all back together, change the connector amd wires, make room so that they wont rub again, and recharge the system and do a diagnose run to see if thats the case... otherwise if it's just a leak and i missed it, i'm sure it will do the show over again, and i can see it! But it was so sudden, and so much, so it does make sense if the pump just wented the entire system out.
