Been meaning to create a thread on here for awhile, finally got around to it heh.
I've owned it since June/July last year from memory, it has just been painted when I got it and hadn't been assembled. Pretty much all I have done since then is assemble it, put a new engine in as the l20et it came with was pretty worn and had a good 2" caking of shit in the sump so out it went. Currently has another L20ET in it which will be coming out shortly, getting a L28 turbo built for it at the moment and well have a few goodies on it like a genuine Trust turbo manifold and a Holset HX40 with T4 .82 Garrrett turbine housing.
Have had it advertised a couple of times but can't bring myself to selling it. love/hate affair.
Few other things that have been done:
-Port matched manifolds
-VG30/rb20det hybrid turbo
-Carter lift fuel pump with surge tank, tank cleaned and resealed. Walbro 255 fuel pump
-Tomei adjustable fuel pressure regulator
-3 core alloy radiator
-XR6 Turbo intercooler
-HD clutch and machined flywheel, uprated pressure plate
-3" down pipe with bung for wideband to 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust
-16x8 RS8 Watanabes with nt05 tyres
-Nardi Torino steering wheel
-Recaro bucket seats
-S13 front brakes and hub carriers with s13 body adjustable suspension.
-Adjustable suspension in the rear, R33 fronts which are also body adjustable
Few other things like gauges.
Now for the pictures of how it is sitting at the moment:
Exhaust has now been fixed, no longer sits that low

Car is currently REG and WOF, being driven daily. Coming off the road after the Rakaia meet.
So, a few details on the new engine build:
-L28 N42 block and head
-Undecided on pistons and rods, got access to a LD28 crank so its a possiblity, wont be going anymore than 89mm if i do.
-Greddy turbo manifold and 50mm HKS wastegate
-Holset HX40 turbo with T4 twin pulse .82 turbine housing.
Going to get it cleaned up. Good ol' Yahoo auctions.
Got a set of Volk Artisan 16x8 and 16x9 on the way, also a RB26 that was meant for the HR30 but no longer going into it.
