We all know what the shortcomings of a bone stock R32 are and 28 years haven't done any good to its components so the result wasn't really unexpected. IMO much more interesting than having the Stig...

It DOES work, far beyond any expectations. Horrible stuff. I'm not sure how tear gas / bear spray / pepper spray is defined in UK legislation but I used dissolved pure capsaicin and dihydrocapsaicin,...

Having recently read reports of an increasing number of car thefts and realized how much time and money I've put in my Skylines (and other cars/trucks), I've been thinking about how to improve my...

That's the road that inevitably leads to VK56DE and a pair of huge turbos. Or a boosted GM LSX while you're at it. :D

Even though sticking with the RB platform gets very expensive once you go...

I shouldn't kill time surfing around. Things are about to get seriously expensive. At this rate my piggybank is about to die a horrific death.

The reason I haven't bought a Rolex in ages. I haven't sold any either (given a few to my kids, though) but compared to what they went for some 20-25 years ago, this is simply insane. OTOH some...

Not bad at all. That's just above 500RWKW that has become an established benchmark of sorts for good power at SAU. Do you happen to have any details of the build? Even though I seem to be able to...

£5-10k isn't really an expensive watch. That's a daily watch. I see watches as a solid way to store your savings. A bit like gold, but in a way that allows you to enjoy them on a regular basis. You...

OEM HIDs have gone absurdly expensive a long time ago. Then again, it's fairly easy to build replicas using good quality retrofit components that outperform OEM:s and, depending on the shrouds, can't...

What's been said is very true. A working, intact car is by far the easiest and cheapest starting point for most modifications. I have a spare rolling R32 chassis sans engine, transmission and ECU,...

600+awkw. That would translate to 90lb+ of air and it isn't even mapped to the max yet. That's what caught my attention. There are number of possible restrictive items missing from the setup, 5-bolt...

Nice curve! Out of curiosity, is that with a Step 2 or Step Pro? I'm torn between the two for a 3.4 9180 QSV build. I wouldn't want to overdo lift to maintain piston clearance with 9+ compression but...

Will do. I'm currently preparing for another R33 LHD swap and there will be a bit of fabrication involved, so having one made while we're at it shouldn't be a problem.
