For awhile I wanted a pair of these Advan V2's on my DR I think they would look pretty good..... I know they arent old school... but atleast they are better then 20" chromies :lol:


This R31 posted on speedhunters looked pretty cool in them

It's a 'shaken' or vehicle inspection sticker (think WOF).

I had a problem with the wastegate sticking, so off came the Turbo for a complete check.

It really isn't easy to get to. :shock:
Image

Keep peeling away at it.
Image

The Turbo was in fine shape for it age. Not blowing a lot of oil, shaft felt tight.
Image

Bead blasted the wastegate and all is good!
Image

It turns out to be the same Turbo as the 280ZX
Image

While the hood was up, out came some useless stuff
Image

And I made a block off plate for the EGR
Image

And used the EGR tube ends for plugging the holes in the Manifolds.
Image

And no broken bolts! :tu:

Next project is converting over to a "C" trans.

You should see the rest of it. According to the manual, I should be reading ELLE magazine. 8) And, I have to buy an old school umbrella now too. :wink:

If I can find the time I'll scan it. It's over 100 pages. :shock:

I put the ebay link up in the auction/ad section a while back. It didn't sell first time around, then disappeared from ebay the second time. Skyrine might know what happened.

Yes, but that's ok. :lol: I drive it all the time and love it more and more. :tu:

Ex-DR30 owner here, I've had two actually a sedan and a coupe both RS's, one turbo one NA. I loved the NA, thought it was a really nicely balanced car.

Kev, do you have a bigger version of that shot? I love it.

And I love this car. And I love DR30s. I want to frolic in a DR30 filled field and roll around in them. Mmmm.

^This would be me, except DR30s instead of puppies.

you know, it took me three years to figure out what that slot in the door pocket was for :lol: it was a photo in one of the catalogues that finally clued me in.

Speaking of ebay, fairly sure I've been seeing HR30 tail lights being passed off as DR30 ones lately. What a gip :evil:
