It cost a fair bit. Could have got it cheaper but new i would get a good job so was worth paying for it. Black isnt the easiest colour to do either. If you really have to know pm me

The only thing ive done really is put the stereo in the boot since last update. I have cut a bigger hole in the right hand side to show the surge tank, fuel pumps etc. It will all be polished etc.

I have bought a lot of things lately and Kyle has been a huge help. Kyle did the rb26 head and it has been ported, has oversized ferrera valves, custom lukevl cams, bigger springs to suit etc. I also got a greddy plenum, oil and water lines, Mr Turbo T72 turbo, Kyle exhaust manifold, and a A.R.E cooler 610x300x109. The bottom end is also being put together and should be ready in the next few weeks. Its got cp pistons, argo rods, jun oil pump etc. So yeah alot of dollars spent but not much bolting together yet!

Great work, car looks absolutely stunning.

Good to see the gaps line up nice, and for a black car, it has come out perfect.
Looks like you are now entering the business end.....even the head looks hot

Almost forgot i made this thread its been that long. I hit a bit of a financial hurdle in this build as i started a plumbing apprenticeship at the start of last year.

I did actually think about selling up as most do but knew id never be able to live with myself if I gave up. Ive made a couple of changes of late such as changing the interior to grey and getting a slightly bigger turbo.

I just received the glide (Thanks again Kyle), have dropped off the diff to get built and should have the motor back in about a month. I really want to have the driveline in by may so I can do the exhaust, cooler piping and fuel system. Im aiming for it to be going august so we'll see how things pan out.

Yeah mate, Its finally gaining some sort of momentum. Its hard to believe but it will make my old one seem fairly tame. Engine is finally finally finally in! Ive got the diff back and in, cooler pipings done, most things are done actually.

Im in the process of making the exhaust and running the fuel lines but apart from that its nearly done. Im going to see Mark next week to have a chat and see when I can get it to him. It will need wiring and the auto put in and a few other things.

enjoy the pics if they work
