I know what you mean same situation here. It's always the same scenario, when you have time than there is shortages of funds, once you cover budget than lack of time is problem. Really looking forward to see final result.

The Gtm steering knucle/coupler comes with an 9/32" thread and no nut to Secure the stud. So redrilled and tapped to a bigger 10mm thread and now fitted with a lock nut. I Think i will have to shave the nut  down to about 3-4mm to clear the downpipe. But better having a little Security than none.

Intake off and ready to remove fuel ralis and Injectors... i'm going with a set of dw600cc uprated walbro in tank pump and Stock regulator for now. That will be plenty for 0,4-0,6 bar.

I Can see that the kits for the 370z almost all come with this revised setup, so i guess it has been an issue. I read about a german doing 100+ mph with his steering going loose on his 350z Gtm tt... so not taking the risk

Just had another few hours today in the garage... and pulled the left side manifold off. Not to bad when you drop the steering rack...

 

anyways. Now i have to come up with a Way of fitting the new manifolds, the gt3076's, wastegates and everything else in the space about the size of a small dog...

Tonight i'm pulling the Oil pan and getting ready to install the AAM competition oil pan spacer with proline AN fittings for the Oil return.

 

This way i don't have to punch holes in the block for oil return. And i get an ekstra liter of oil capasity.

And i Can see that my "longer" Oil Pick up, is just as long as the Stock one... 

 

So i'll have to machine a spacer.

 

and just refreshed the Oil pan with a little tlc from the rattlecan...

 

thats it for tonight...

I'm at real risk of asking a stupid question here, but I'll go with it. Isn't the pickup the same length because there's going to be more oil in there, so the surface will remain at the same height?

That's a good question...

 

i have no idea really.

but i can see that the bolts provided with the "longer" pickup are 25mm longer than the the Stock ones, so they would need a 25mm spacer to work.

 

and maybe the oil can slush more with the added spacer when going sideways, braking etc. 

 

I'll look into it today, but i don't think there is any harm done in getting the pickup lower, but i do see your point...
