No updates for a while now since I had to change CAS sensor and both rear bearings which cost more than I thought, but finally this arrived on my doorstep




Quality is simply amazing it's really a work of art ! Will install it tonight and post some more pics up . Engine bay should change drastically after the oem intake's removal

Managed to install it yday after some minor fitment issues, here are some photos of the process:

Out with the old


Installing the afm's on the ARC



Time to fit


And finally my engine bay looks much better thanks to ARC



Had to bend on of the guard corners a slightly since it was coming in contact with my bonnet unfortunately, but no harm done, have no idea if the vspecII bonnet is any different design-wise fm the oem ones if anyone can shed some light on this.

My car now is mapped on 1.4 bar pressure and after installing the intake whilst coming home I noticed that now it goes up to 1.6 !! Guess I need to call my tuner again for some adjustments .

It's pretty interesting to look at the weave... it looks like wet carbon instead of dry! Is that a seam I see towards the bottom of the sanded area?

Yes mate that looks like a seam. Looks like they added the naca duct onto the bonnet, the seam should be all around the duct.

Nice purchase. Iconic car.

But couldn't help noticing that you fully poly bushed it?

Why would you do that if your not going to track it? Poly are harsh and need regular maintenance, should have just left it stock, would be a lot more comfortable.

Front end started to look new once again





Refurbished brakes, will add red lettering later on instead of yellow since my wheels as well as suspension have red all over them




And some teaser photos of the car as it sits at the moment, will take better ones during the weekend. The wheels are absolutely stunning it's like they were made for millennium jades the colors match soooo nicely. The tires along with the bush replacement made the car very responsive in regards to road behavior without making it too stiff though. The ride quality is second to none! So happy with the choices I made

Hi ,
I beg to differ with you on this particular matter, the oem bushes were worn out therefore needed to be changed anyway, so why buy the genuine ones since I could have made the response of my car better and faster? And what amazes me mostly is that the car is not as stiff as I thought it would be, it's actually much better and responsive and are not harsh at all, maybe my S Tune suspension also helps in this case as well as the Yokohama Advan AD048R's. I love the way the car behaves now, it's far better than before.

small update

O'Conner has been sitting for 2 months now since I sold my HKS FCON and hopefully my new ecu will come tomorrow. In the meanwhile, the upgrades still kept going, even minor ones,so I thought I'd share some pics with you guys.

Was thinking were to put my innovate a/f, defi oil pressure & water methanol gauges for quite a while now so I took a slightly radical decision in the end which resulted in removing my stereo & speakers fm the car since they was never used since day one for 2 main reasons. First one is that I can't get enough of that straight six sound no matter how long I'm driving the for. Second is that I couldn't hear anything anyway, since my exhaust is titanium

Decided to collaborate with a good friend of mine who owns a company under the name SUPER VELOCITY, the guy is a prodigy in carbon fiber manufacturing as well as titanium. So started with this SV carbon fiber panel

and then ordered this small genuine interior used in the distant cousin NISMO Juke for an oem touch to see how it would look


as well as a killer switch, since there won't be any boost controller on my new setup, just low/high pressure mode which directly connected to the new ecu via a boost control valve. This was the final result which I absolutely love I must say!

Thought it was time for a little engine bay refresh/upgrade so got these made by my friend at SV:

Grade A SV Titanium bonnet holder, this thing is truly a work of art



Never thought I'd save 600g from a bonnet holder! oem was around 800g fm memory and the titanium one is less than 200g!

Was thinking about getting a new fuse box cover since the one on my car looked old and faded so we decided to make a dry carbon one which weighs only 80g



and some prepreg carbon fiber radiator brackets


Will take an updated engine bay photo once everything is installed

My HKS DLI 2 coil amplifier died on me after only 3,000km's and whilst the car was sitting, was really expecting better manufacturing quality from HKS

Instead of buying another one, I thought it was time for an upgrade so after some thinking on which route to follow, I received these


Really heard good things about the Okada coils by many people so I thought I'd give them a try. Since DLI harness was no longer compatible with my coil setup I ordered a DO-LUCK Enhanced Ignition Harness Kit which should arrive by Tuesday. When everything is received the car will go for wiring check up and sensor placement for the gauges and then we are going for mapping

Okada coils are expensive, let us know if they are as good as they are meant to be, if so they are worth the money.

I'm also expecting quite a difference from oem coil packs and together with the do-luck harness it should be quite noticeable. Will keep you informed.
