Got my haul of parts in the mail the other day. Apparently I should have double checked the appropriate boss kits though, because I ordered the wrong one. I'll order the correct boss kit after Christmas/New year. I'm really chuffed with the wood gearknob though. It has a nice feel and it's cool to know it was handmade. The best part is that the wood itself is fragrant and smells amazing.
Later that evening I accidentally another set of AVS.
16×7J +30. Effectively the same as the GT-Rs, but an inch narrower. I'll get these cleaned up a bit and resprayed in pearl white and run them as my daily wheels.
I spent this afternoon replacing the coilpacks, leads and plugs and made an attempt to fix a couple of small vacuum leaks between the AFM and the throttle body. No real noticeable gain in power, but it does feel a lot smoother and less hesitant than before, which is nice. The two remaining original coilpacks were showing signs of dying with the outer casing starting to crack in places. Either way, I've got two usable spares still and it gives me some peace of mind knowing that the ignition side of things is up to scratch. No photographs, because it looks exactly the same under the bonnet.
