I have to say that it all has been very positive so far and I've enjoyed being a member of the Skyline community. A big thumbs up to Nat(Natbrat) who I've relied on for advice and his expertise(probably bordering on being a pain!lol)

In the upcoming weeks I will be looking at getting the car ready for the summer and will keep you posted on the progress. Thanks a lot guys.

Welcome, quite an impressive spec list! Looks like a very nice R32, use a photobucket account and upload images onto there so they come out bigger.

Thanks guys. I'll work on getting some better pictures up soon. Gotta few things planned for her. Gonna get her into Ron at RK this week to change the cam belt as a precaution and delete the hicas and pretty much give her a proper once over.

Yes mate, as long as I'm not working that's the plan! I intend to go to as many meets as possible and enjoy her as much as I can as last year I was just too busy.

An impressive spec list indeed.

That T51 must be addictive..
My mate has the T51r BB Kai turbo with the GTII wastegate on his RX7 and making about 360hp at 0.7bar iirc.
Had a wee shot, its mental when the boost and screamer comes in :D

You're not wrong there mate. When that turbo kicks in you get such a rush! And the sound is just awesome. I was instantly hooked. Took it into Ron at Rk today so really excited a out getting it back after he's given it a thorough look over. The nismo timing belt is about 5 years old too so would just feel better knowing that it's changed. It would be just my luck for the forbidden to happen! Went for an hks one this time as I thought it would look best with the hks cam gears.
