Thanks for all the positve replies guys

I wasn't sure if anyone would post as most people are sick of the site of it

Halfshafts are out at the moment getting new hardy spicer unis.

Will be putting my Nismo 550cc injectors, Z32 with tomei plug and PLMS modded computer in this week, as it has had nice run in now.

If all goes well will be on the dyno and out to the track soon and then start saving for stage 3 :

Tonight i will be cleaning out my old thread and posting up alot more pics explaining what I have done and how I got there.

Thanks

I thought of just doing a link to the old thread, but given the first 20 pages had pics that were attachments and are no longer there I thought it might be helpful and interesting for people to read (wishful thinking)

Started November 05 (wow thats longer than i thought....)

Looked like this: L16 pride, ghetto cut springs and some BLING BLINGS but very straight body and no rust so lots of hard work was already done.
