We will have to go cruzing in a couple of weeks. Hope it's done by then. Should work well.
I thought you were getting an aftermarket computer?

Excellent stuff dude.

One thing though, buy a bunch of silicone lines!

Mate spent 80bucks on the weekend and we replaced nearly every line with blue silicone on his 180sx project and it now looks 11ty times better! We also used braided line but that puppy expensive

What a welcoming sight!
Car is finally in the driveway.
Gave it a quick clean.

Very awesome to drive even if its only on 5psi of boost.
Tried 10psi but the ecu kept trying to pull the timing out and made it run rich.

Better hi res pics of the setup

Incredibly stocked.
And at $6000 I'm chuffed.
They were only $500 above the quote. So incredibly happy, and the quality of the job is awesome.
I was suppose to get the car last week Monday, so its a week past the date.
Recap:
$500 above quote
1 week longer.
I think it's a pretty good deal.

Still going to be about 2 more weeks until the ecu is installed.
Hoping for approx 130-140kw on 10-12psi of boost.
I think thats reasonable...

Got round to doing some dashboard modifications

Boost gauge now sits where the clock use to be.
Looks much cleaner than when it was sitting on the A-pillar, and is now more visible whilst driving.
Might swap out the oil pressure gauge with one that has measurements...

Engine out to replace a turbo gasket!!! That is just poor planning on Nissan's behalf.

First update of 2010.
Car went to the mechanic last month to get compression tested, and boost leak tested. Everything returned back fine or within tolerances.
Still have this horrible lag, full boost at 5000rpm, and a maximum possible boost of 11.5 psi.

Well, finally found what the problem is, no thanks to the workshop, found the problem on my own!....Well, a group of Silvia guys had the same problem and pointed me in the right direction.

A bit hard to see, i hope i made it easier by highlighting it.
Quite the gap around the exhaust impeller, the gap should be very snug. Seems like exhaust is flowing right around the impeller.

*Took me 3 hours to get this shot, damn its hard to reach the 5 bolts holding the dump pipe on...Clearly no experience in this area*
