So, since i've been back, i've ordered a few other parts.

Do-Luck Rear Cross Bar (looks to be almost brand new)



Nismo Transmission Baffle



Still waiting to install a lot of this stuff until after I get the car off to the body shop and get a few other things done to make sure it's mechanically sound.
I also want to try and get it weighed so I can have a good base number for actual weight, not just going by what the sticker/internet says.

Hoping to have a lot of this done before the next RCCA event, as I would really like to make it out to as many as possible this year.

Weekend has come and gone already. Le bummer. But! I dropped off the stock GT-R wheels at East Wheel repair shop. Having them fix those little nicks/gouges and smooth them out. Going to cost about •16,200 ($145). Not too bad I guess, least they will be done correctly and I won't worry about them being screwed up by a grinding stone if i did it.
I did however polish the good wheel and I think it turned out excellent! I used my Porter Cable 7424 DA polisher, wool pads and Wolfgang aluminum polishes. I'll let the pics speak for themselves, not perfect but I'm super pleased. I'll take good sunlight pic tomorrow to hopefully blind everyone.

Thanks! Can't wait to get the other 3 back, finish sanding and polishing them and then get them painted. I've already picked out the color, hopefully it'll look good, lil bit of flash but not too crazy.

Forgot to upload pics in the sun. Also color I'm currently planning to do: R35 GAG Black Pearl/Nebula Opal Black.
I'm interested in R32 Black Pearl Metallic and R34 Black Pearl, but I can't seem to find any close up pics of them, to see the flake/pearl.

Finished polishing the wheels today. Turned out pretty good I think. Now gotta get them off to be painted and save up for some tires for them. More updates in the next few days. Have some more small projects to do.

Small update. Got my Mine's submeter's installed, just need to get a speedo cable and can do the main cluster with Mine's speedo. I like the look of them, but only issue I have is that the boost gauge doesn't show vacuum, which I prefer. Slightly debating on changing them and the main cluster to Nismo white face, but I'll leave it be for now.

As for the wheels, local American guy here is gonna paint them up and do some other custom part, so just waiting on him to finish another job and then take my wheels.

Got the same mines gauges they read up to 1.6bar Nismo versions max out at 1.4.

Anyways I will be replacing mine with a Double Din unit featuring gauge art with data being dumped from my Haltech Elite 2500.

yeah, one of the few reasons I chose the Mine's, cause it went up so high. however, now that I think of it, I don't think i'll ever go that high on twins as if I went single I'd probably be wanting something a bit more accurate. so that, coupled with the no vacuum part, is what's got me kinda thinking of switching to the Nismo ones.

no new updates, still waiting on some parts to arrive. and trying to buy some more cheap spare parts, but kinda hard because we're planning a trip back up to Osaka and Kyoto next month (gonna go pig out in Osaka again!). so, not much wiggle room for car stuff.

Well "fun times" have arrived.

Sitting at a light on the way home and heard the idle turn different and smelled a slight burning smell. Light turned green and as I took off, car was missing/sputtering and had a lack of power. Luckily i was just down the street from my house so i was able to limp it up the road. Got her in the garage, tried unplugging the MAF's, damn near died unplugging each one individually, so think i can check that one off the list. No engine light. I noticed that the vacuum is around 500 and fluttering a bit, it's usually at 600 (or whatever is the first tick past 500) and fairly steady.

Wondering already if it's a vacuum leak, though the burnt smell has me worried and curious. Hope it's an easy fix.

Actually now that I think back....I unplugged the MAF for the rear turbo and the idle got worse but car didn't die. Plugged it back in and went back to the choppy idle. Unplugged the MAF for the front turbo and she died in a few seconds. Hmmm...

Well while trying to diagnose this problem, seems it's time to replace the coil harness. Not sure if this is/was the problem or not, but it needs replaced now for sure. Guess I'll be ordering one of these now. Might just put new plugs in while I'm already there. Tested the resistance of the coils and that turned out ok. Guess I'll try the other resistance check part of them and see how that turns out. Couldn't get a good reading on the voltage for MAF's so have to figure out how to do that. This is a great example of why having the Consult cable and software is beneficial. Had I bought it ages ago like I kept telling myself I would, I'd probably know what's wrong already. Any ideas other than the obvious ignition, MAF's, fuel filter and/or vacuum leak problems to check?

From memory, if the MAF's are playing up, you wont be able to rev it past 3k?

Can you rev it all? Does it only happen when cold? Wouldnt be surprised if one of your vacuum hoses have split.

I actually babied it the 1/4 mile to my house, so I don't remember if it was able to rev up to or past 3k rpm or not. I was just paranoid it wouldn't make it up the super steep hill to get to my road, I went into caveman mode and didn't pay attention. Dumb me!

And now that I've fubar'd the coil harness, can't do anything other than check voltage and ohms and clean stuff up, til I get a new one. I have thought and hoped it's a vacuum hose (that's easily accessable). I wanted to check for leaks, but all the options other than using a smoke machine don't look too safe (like using brake fluid or something around intake mani and such).

Hope I get er' figured out.

Got the new harness in less than 24 hours. Was shocked how fast the Japanese postal service works. I didn't pay for 1 day shipping or anything like that.

Anyway, picked up some new NGK Iridium plugs, figured I'd give them a try as whatever was in the car currently was probably cheap and/or old. Turns out it had Iridium's in it, but I'm not sure of the age. And their condition wasn't too bad looking on plugs 1, 2, 5, & 6. But 3 and 4 have me a bit concerned as you can see by the pics (starting at the right with 1 and end at 6 on the left). Nevertheless, I put them in, ohm'd out the secondary part of the coils which was good to go and that's where I'm at currently. Waiting to get an adapter for my torque wrench to torque the plugs (yes, I'm that picky about stuff I torque everything down). Then I'll throw her back together and hopefully she'll start up and issue will be resolved.

Hope you get it sorted! On my previous GTR I had a similar hesitation at 5k RPM, £400+ on Splitfire coilpacks, turns out it was a split hose to the twin turbo pipe, £20 delivered...

Can I ask, where'd you get your Nismo transmission baffle from? I've just ordered one from Z1 Motorsports in the USA. Only place I found who still have them!

Me too. I'm looking around at hoses and stuff, nothing noted yet, though I will probably double check everything to make sure. Need to figure out how to make a smoke tester or something.

As for the baffle, got it off Yahoo Auctions Japan. I thought I'd seen them around somewhere else, couldn't remember where. Guess it was Z1, though I thought it was elsewhere.

Got her back together and fired her up. Let her sit and idle a bit til up to operating temp, then revved it up to different RPM's, up to 3K. No sputtering or cutting out, vacuum was spot on. I didn't drive her, trying to wait til all this friggen rain we've had dumped on us clears up a bit. I'm hoping it was a random occurrence or something I messed with I somehow fixed.

Still ordering that Consult software and cable. Will be helpful til I switch to the PFC. Then i can use it to help others.
