Does this mean we're gonna see the old girl out and bout in the new year ?
Completed the family at uni one day
Intercooler was purchased off Dalspec and was installed a short time after.
Just did a quick job of cleaning up the core and piping.
Installing it, with the help of a mate
All back together and driving, the install itself was a bit unnerving. It was the most i'd done to a car before, so the idea of trimming body parts and trying to make it all fit was a bit daunting, but went fairly smoothly over 2 days. Thanks to my neighbour for lending me a holesaw that wasn't complete rubbish and Trav again for making sure I didn't screw anything up too badly hahaha
Threw in a catch can, this was just something I wanted to do, I realise theres not much benefit as this isn't a drift/track car, but figured I may as well.
Picked up this from Goodie, Hardrace front swaybar. Suspension is also something I really want to play around with, even though my mechanical confidence is still not great, although I found installing the sway bar pretty easy which was nice. It's improved the body roll a fair bit over stock, I wasn't really sure how much difference it was actually going to make, but it does feel tighter in the front now. I'm looking forward to tackling the rest of the suspension, going by the state of my tie rod ends, theres a lot of work and improvement to be done.
Did this too, also removed factory bypass valve, cos I'm immature and fluttery noises make me happy
I needed to make some progress on the drivetrain, so had the flywheel machined and sourced a new stock shifter from Taarks, new wave spring washer, circlip and snap ring (absolute pain to get back in) for the shifter from Nissan, a solid shifter bushing and upgraded shifter return springs from GKTech. Got the shifter back together and back in the box, can now select gears and it's got me all excited again. Downside is i still don't have a clutch, and recent spending and lack of time means I'm probably only going to be able to do this early Feb, or maybe really early Jan if I can find time.
