More bits are arriving, this time the Expreme Ti Downpipe. Bloody amazing bit of kit and didn't realise it came as three separate pipes. I have only ever seen down pipes as one single piece before.

As always amazing quality welds on the pipes and extremely light, a small downside is one of the pipes is a little bent on the end but nothing that can't be bent back (although it's not really needed).

This is the first time I have ever seen these as they are so bloody expensive not many people are daft enough to buy them.

Just the Ti decat to arrive now.

Slow progress but now the Tomei Ti decat has finally turned up from Jap, the whole exhaust is fitted, full tomei expreme from the turbos back (also has tomei turbo elbows it turns out)

Also all of the badges are on it and it makes a world of difference in making it look nicer overall. All badges were missing so the GT wings/GTR Rear and Nissan Rear.

Nice view from under, the welding is proper engineering porn👌

Today was the day the Syvecs install was finished. A couple of power runs done. The car will be coming home tomorrow, Horsham are going over the fine tuning and sorting the coldstart stuff out.

Any guesses on final power?

I'm saying 700 to 800whp+, and I could be low! I'm basing this on my RB28 build.

We hit 685.4 bhp at 1.4 bar, I want to keep it a nice safe reliable power so we left it there. It did go over 700 bhp with 1.5 but twins do struggle a little at that power.

Low boost is set at 1.3 bar 613.2 bhp

I will include the graph asap

OK so time for a long overdue update. I will detail the majority of what has happened over the past few months getting it ready for the summer with some pictures and maybe a video!

So to start with I am never confident with the strength of carbon bonnets and their ability to break loose of the standard latch and smash the bonnet and windscreen. So I ordered some genuine aero catches and proceeded to cut a oneoff extremely expensive bonnet, which turns out has a honeycomb design for strength, pretty cool!

Next up (well technically before but it's next up in regards to my photos) was the car going for it's first ever MOT with myself, all good. Really just a photo opportunity.

A couple of random bits came next, an electronic exhaust valve to try and quieten it down a little (it didn't work) and a mechanical speedo converter so I could keep the original dials but just have it show in MPH.

A little more fun comes next, well fun in regards to what the end product looks like but due to the way the old HKS Camp 2 has to be wired in, an actual nightmare to sort the wiring.

I upgraded the old hat kenwood double din unit for a brand new Pioneer with apple carplay, DAB etc. It doesn't stick out from the dash like the old Kenwood and looks a lot neater which I am happy with. Here is how the old one looked (along with a general look at the interior)

And here is the nightmare that was the wiring behind it that I ended up cutting the majority of it out and re-wiring.

Along with some really dodgy twisted cables just floating around, best wiring ever!!!!

267167


Here is the completed product, all fitted and running the CAMP2 which looks pretty retro and suits the car but sadly can't be run at the same time as listening to music as it uses the video/audi aux in on the stereo.

You will also notice just through the steering wheel is the E-ESC controller for the exhaust valve on the car. Always set to 100% open.

I was kindly gifted a R32 GTR Hyper revs magazine and when first receiving it I opened it to a random page and there staring me in the face was a Silver R32 S1 with Black LMGT4 wheels just like mine and I loved the look so I decided that is the way I wanted to go with the car.

From there I started getting in contract with local decal produces as I wanted to make the car look like an S1 from a distance but have all the decals that refer to S1 and Omori reference EndlessR in homage to the build.

Here are the shots from the Hyper revs that I blame for my new addiction:-

267172


267173


Below was the result. I started off with the stripes on the sides and bonnet as they were the most striking and obviously most difficult to line up and apply.

267174
267175


Next up the S1 decals, I wanted to have something slightly different so replaced S1 with E1 in the same font and changed the subtext

267176
267177


Followed closely by the wing decals and the door decals, replacing S1 again with E1, Om factory with Endless and the new style nismo badge with the old style as I feel it suits the age of the car better.

267178


267179


Probably not to everyone's taste but ultimately being decals if I get bored it's easy to take it all off again! :) I really like the look though.
