hey guys, so winter is coming in canada very soon, and like most of us GTR owners, when the season change and we can't drive.. its time to get to work!!...

so i have a few things on a list that i want to do to the car over winter, and i'd like you guys's input as to wether you think these things on my list are a good idea.. and also if you could reccomend anything i may have forgotten from my list that should be considered....

i should mention this car has yet to see a track day, but hopefully after this winter it will! for now, the goal is response.. i love quick spooling turbos, and handling more than anything. and above all else, reliability.

ive posted at the bottom some photos of my car (you may have seen the build thread "JL GTR from stock to finish" etc), and the current spec/mod/maintenance list ive already done.

- alloy radiator
- optima battery (not sure which color top? help?)
- battery relocated to trunk
- denso intank fuel pump
- yellow jacket coil packs
- replace oem nissan ignition wiring harness
- a swirl pot for engine coolant (please help where to get one? what brand?)
- remove black paint from FMIC
- remove rear wiper and wiper motor and sprayer
- relocate rear sprayer to FMIC area, relocate washer fluid bottle to boot/trunk. fill with methyl hydrate / alcohol to be used as an FMIC ice cold sprayer*
- some new >600cc injectors (w/e brand)
- HKS SSQV BOV (want to move away from blitz ones)
- trust oil cooler + filter relocation kit
- greddy profec B spec II
- turbo timer
- whiteline or cusco front and rear anti-sway / roll bars
- clean up all the wiring in the engine bay, re-do electrical tape and verify the wires for cracks. replace when necessary.
- relocate engine fuse box/relay box to somewhere hidden (where do people put these things?)
- relocate resistor pack (again.. where?) and PCM (?where?)

then when spring comes it`ll be to the dyno for a re-tune at 1.0 bar (stock tubros) and a clutch upgrade + light weight flywheel + nismo slave + SS braided clutch line.

*mythyl hydrate /alcohol has the effect of turning quickly into a gas when it comes in contact with air... so much so that at high speeds it can creat frost and snow of the quickly moving air over the FMIC.
