Awesome, I'll get togeather a list. Waiting on the new mishimoto intercooler and Greddy suction intake kit (my Black Friday purchases lol) I'll know what more I'll need once those are fitted installed.

Default Re: Vert RB26 Rebirth "Sleepy Demon"

Received a pleasant surprise on my doorstep tonight that I wasn't expecting until end of February. My Greddy Suction kit!







Did a mock fitment of the suction kit to make sure everything works as it should with minor changes. Everything looked and fit good aside from a few minor modifications I'll have to make so it all fits perfectly.







Also got my Street Faction Engineering front bash bar





Made me happy to see how far down the collector pipe sits, exactly where I need it to be to mate up to a 90* lower intercooler pipe.



I'll have to open the hole up to allow more collector pipe movement



Rewire/relocate the relay box so the intakes fit nicely



Reclock the turbos so the piping doesn't impact the valvecover





Also decided to rip this off Viking style because it was in my way and not used lol

A few quick updates

Fabricated the intercooler piping just need to get it welded up











Moved the relay box and made a usable mounting setup





Got the kit back from powder coating and checked it out all set up



Dexter'd it up



Freshened up the bay





Spent about 12 hours helping a buddy with his R32 GTR

A LOT OF UPDATES

As per usual Murphy's Law has always ruled this build and instead of doing what I've done in the past which was find a short cut solution I'm continuing to make this a higher quality build and doing it right.

Pulled the old and pissing steering rack while it was easiest with everything off and replaced it with a freshly rebuilt unit.

Installed a Voodoo13 Solid steering bushing

Ran new cooling hoses properly this time for the coolant swirl system

Currently designing and assembling a new AN power steering setup to bring the power steering back

Installed braided power steering rack lines

During drilling and tapping for the coolant engine bleed hose I removed the fuel rail with injectors and 2 of the ceramic pintals came off and cyl 5 pintal broke and fell into the intake port. Borescoped and found valve closed so I then removed the intake manifold and ITB's assemblies and vacuumed the ceramic out so it wouldn't fall in and damage the cylinder.

After all that and doing further inspections came to the conclusion it was time to upgrade the injectors replace the 8 year old mated wiring harness for the clean pre-made pro harness and looking at upgrading the manifold to the Nismo Manifold (YES, I said the Nismo manifold lol)

Also, picked up and brand new factory clutch pedal assembly thanks to CIP/240sxmotoring and a braided clutch line and will be getting the Nismo slave soon as well.

Lastly for now I finally upgraded my coils and contacted Yellow Jacket and got a set of brand new Yellow Jacket coil packs.
