Not really - the provider just cautioned me about advertising the CV kit too much as he is finding a much harder time finding all the necessary parts from Japan. It's Stewart Wilkins Motorsport from Australia.

So not much progress on my car. Waiting on Rebello to engine dyno the 2360cc motor as the actual engine is done, just waiting for dyno time. Also working with Stance on a custom coilover setup and finding it challenging to get the proper parts shipped over from Japan. Hopefully, in a couple of weeks, the parts will come in and that will be taken care of. Got sick of having the car just sit there so went on a little fun run with a few friends. Pretty diverse group of cars if you ask me. Bridge is the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, CA.

You'll have to let us know how the Stance coilovers go. Was that drive done with the new CVs installed or no?

That drive and weather looks lovely! I too went for a drive yesterday but it was not as warm!

No not yet...will just do the rear coilovers and the new CV kit at the same time. Basically the entire rear end including R31 brakes, etc.

Can't find the original pictures of the heater pre-refurbishment but needless to say it didn't look that great. A ton of leaves had been trapped inside the heater and every time I would turn it on broken pieces of leaves would come out. It had been 3 years and I was still getting leaves! Pulled everything out and had the core boiled out by a local radiator shop. Then worked on resealing it with high-quality foam to make it look nicer and function better as well.

More slow progress...getting the header from Ermish racing and had it coated with a high-temp ceramic coating at a local shop. Before the coating went on I had a buddy weld on a V-band in preparation for the full exhaust to be built in the future. Good news is my engine is actually going to be dynoed at Rebello's tomorrow!

Nice, I'm looking forward to seeing what your motor makes. It looks like it is almost the same as what I have.
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

Same motor (2360cc) made 190hp to the wheels which is very close to what your motor made. We'll see what mine does at the crank. Planning on doing a chassis dyno later this year.

I was curious about that also, as even with our 94 octane pump fuel, we need to run a very good octane booster.

I do not think you get any better than 91 octane in the U.S.?
