No, the connector on the harness, Think they're a 4 pin? Cant remember, the brown looking one. My issue was that #3 or 4 had a loose connector cos of a hairline crack, hence gave me intermittent misfire.

Let us know how the leak test goes!

I actually have a PFC, just wanted to wait to install it until the car is running flawlessly on factory stuff. Then want to upgrade to R35 MAF's, injectors and coils and probably fuel pump and turbos too.
Most shops here in Japan are accustomed to older tuning ecu's like PFC and e-Manage. They're not too familiar with the newer better tech surprisingly, from what I've heard/read. But I think some are starting to get with the times, so maybe one day I'll move over to a Haltech or G4.

Oh well then yeah, I put in a new harness so that would cover the connections. Leak test was meh. Still didn't seal up around the machine well enough for my liking and i need to get the fog thicker. It's dissipating too quickly and is coming out more like water vapor which makes me nervous as I don't want to get lots of water vapor inside the engine obviously. So..gotta figure that out for me to say it's working and there's 100% certainty of no leak(s).

Started one of my lil side projects. Trying to save weight wherever possible and get rid of those crummy pod filters on the car, I've decided to try an R33 GT-R airbox out. So far it hasn't worked out. The mounting tabs circled in yellow are in the way of it sitting down further is the first problem. I've drilled out the rivets and removed the one bracket. The issue is if i cut off the other one and it still doesn't work, I'm left with a useless airbox. If I bin the idea now, I can just re-rivet the other bracket back on and sell the box.
Either way something is replacing those pod filters, as the MAF's are getting all mucked up. Might be a cause for this intermittent issue.

You need to get rid of the washer bottle. I'm using an R34 arc airbox.

I don't think I can get away with that as it's required for JCI here, to spray the windshield. Why i was hoping to maybe cut those sections out and maybe shave down the side intake. I think if I do that it'll work but I don't know if I wanna try and be left with something unusable if it doesn't work.

Had an idea so gonna go ahead and try it out. Already trimmed the side intake duct and tried to fit it with no luck. After eyeballing where it'd need to be trimmed to fit and be low enough to clear the hood, it hit me. Why not just cut the entire damn thing and make it a homemade ARC style box. Would not look pretty but it'd be just as good, probably better actually, than those crappy pod filters that had flimsy cheap looking filter material in it. And the metal tube part of the pod filters got so hot, I'm sure that wasn't helping out much, even if the air had to go through the intercooler afterwards.
My plan is to find out what other models have the same style filter (thanks to Mine's website I think the list they have for their VX filters will help). Then scour the junkyards to see if any of them have a better cover that is thin profile like what I need. Til then I'll roll with the setup I'm modifying til I can make it work correctly and efficiently.

Also forgot to mention I dropped off the stock wheels to the painter yesterday so hopefully here in a few weeks I'll have them back and can have pictures of them finally.

Hopefully my crudely edited pics can give a good idea of what I'm doing. Hopefully I'll get it all done up tomorrow after work!

Went hunting at a junkyard with no luck. Instead of wasting more time at others I hit up UpGarage and they have an R33 GTS/GTS25-t airbox for •499 (roughly $5). So have it on the way. Hoping just the top part (basically the side you see in the pic) will be thin enough to fit. If not, I'll hack it up and make it look nice and use it. That way if and when I move away from an OEM airbox I can put the 33 GT-R part back on and sell it.
Won't know if it'll work til it gets here but looking at pics of another one they have for sale it looks like it'd work, maybe with some finessing and cussing.

Well got the ECR33 box from UpGarage. Took the top from it and the bottom from the R33 GT-R and test fitted, did some modifications and slapped her in. I'll give it 95% success. Still have a few things I need to tidy up with it, but she's in and I'm pleased with the outcome thus far. Once i get it 100%, I'll be dropping a How To on here. Few pics for now.

No real updates. Still waiting to hear something on the wheels. Still trying to get all the stuff I need for my timing belt/cooling system maintenance. And still trying to figure out the last bit(s) for the hybrid airbox.

I did get my Consult cable and software from PLMS/Nissan Data Scan finally, so i can do better diagnosing. And wife got me some sweet shirts at the local Aeon mall for my birthday.

Hope to have some real updates this week.

No updates other than more parts arriving (used fuel rail, oil pickup, AFM rubber o-rings, and oil seal housing). Had the pleasure of doing little detailing on a coworkers FD RX-7. He's heading back to the States with it in a few months and I have a bunch of extra detailing supplies I need to use up, so did his car and taught him some stuff too. Turned out great! And as luck would have it, not even 5 minutes after pulling it outta my garage, it rained for like 2 minutes then stopped. Ah well.

Picked up a bit of nostalgia. It's a brochure from 1989. Mine is a 1993, but thought it'd be cool to have. It's in pretty good shape for being 28 years old. And it was like •400, with free shipping, so I couldn't pass it up. Hopefully i can find more stuff like this for cheap.

Coming up a month now without an update. car will be going in a local shop 27th to get a lot of this stuff installed and leaks fixed. Hope I don't have problems like some of the others have had in some of their build threads here. If I had the tools here with me to do all myself, I would. Slowly but surely getting them, but for the time being paying a shop to do some of it for me is my only choice.

Any opinions on the HKS or Tomei metal intake gaskets? Since the manifold has to come off to get those water hoses fixed, figured I'd replace the OEM gaskets with metal ones and though Nismo offers the throttle gaskets, they don't offer one for between the head and intake, so that's why I'm thinking of going HKS or Tomei. Not a big deal on price, I want quality.

Still waiting for the wheels to get back, he's hopefully going to start them this weekend after we talk about a few minor details.

I have been so busy with my mom being here visiting, I haven't made time to finish the airbox project or clean up the car very well. Hoping to finish it soon and maybe pick up a nice used equal length front pipe from either Veilside or Reimax in a few days. Hopefully I can do something to take pics of and make this thread a bit less boring!

I had the choice between HKS and NITTO for the metal gaskets. Ended up going with NITTO. Have been on the car for many years now without problem. I'm sure that the HKS would perform equally as well TBH.

Yeah I'd looked at the NITTO ones too, but being in Japan, I can get the HKS ones incredibly cheap, so that's the main reasoning behind getting one of the two I mentioned. Plus i need them lickity split!
Thanks for the reply though!

Well as luck would have it, went to drop my car off at the shop that was supposed to work on my car. Their loaner had no insurance and all of the sudden they couldn't get me in for another week. I even called them before I left my house to confirm everything and was told to come on by. So now I'm up shit creek without a paddle. Wife needs our other car so im stuck driving my car with leaks and that damn stumbling running rough problem. So don't feel bad, shady shops all over, even in Japan.

A quick look on data scan, looks like my o2 right hand was not fluctuating...might be my rough running problem? Is that the rear o2?

So decided I'm going to fix what i can myself and let Nissan do the rest. Will be way more than I want to spend but least they're willing to take my money and they'll do it right. I don't know what's up with shops these days but it's rather sad that you can't get quality work or even a price estimate somewhere these days. Anyway I'm done dicking around, I want my car fixed so I can enjoy it and start doing upgrades.

I'm going to start a new thread about my car running poorly problem. Maybe it'll get more attention in its own thread. Did find out I have a Mine's ECU. And someone did some nice hack work on the wiring to my ecu. So get to fix that too, don't think it's part of my problem though.

Hopefully trading off this ECU tomorrow, but after I got it out I assessed the rats nest of wiring fu*kery. I'm not sure wtf was done to this car prior to me owning it, but someone had no idea wtf they were doing. Wires I've identified as being spliced or cut and then poorly "fixed" are vehicle speed sensor and afm front. There's about 4-6 others I haven't messed with yet.

Anyone know wtf this brown connector or plug is? *figured out, common Earth ground it looks like*
