take that crank pulley and throw it into space. fluidampr or ati, dm light pulley's cause a painful motor irritation beyond mechanical herpes.

 

seriously, most people have timing belt explosions or crank failures with that pulley. save yourself the trouble, at least run the stock one until it blows off and kills people.

 

cool build.

 

and lol @ the cheepy steering wheel. i actually love those wheels that come free with chinese hubs on ebay, you can get food all over em and throw them away like nothing. they always need a little hammering to get them straight tho.

HAHA we have the same turbo! Project looks proper man. Definitely an example ofwhat this forum is all about :) Really though, 5 years ago this shit was unthinkable. Now it's normal and I love it.

 

And Bill's right about the pulley.

CIH - Not sure 'bout drifting. just building a daily sleeper for now.

 

Bill - I've ran a few DM Underdrive pulleys in the past. I daily drove my 1J two years no problems w/ that pulley. I've heard of the same problem, just haven't seen it. I will definitely look into FluidDamper and ATI though. Hate to lose such an investment by a cheapo pulley. Thanks for Lookin' out.

 

Aphxero - Thanks for the rep. you and your bro do some crazy stuff. always fun seeing what you guys have in store. How's that Turbo working out for you?

SHE'S ALIVE!!!

Only for a few seconds because its super late and the neighbors still like me :)

I will take it for a spin tomorrow.

 

Thanks AGAIN Jay, AARON, and my wife.

 

Well, didn't make the deadline, not due to any problems, just ran out of time. Tried to save everything for the last minute and it bit us the night before.

 

Got most of the mechanical side of things done. I guess whats mainly left is the finishing touches and putting the interior back together.

 

It's easier to list whats left than to list what has been done so far:

 

Methanol injection install

Boost controller install

Interior

Turbo Timer

Mount Battery Box

Recaro seat

Harness bar

Exhaust / cutout

300zx brake install

 

Video Coming Soon!

Here are some progress pics and how she sits now:

 

This is not how it went in the tank (I wish). The access hole is way too small to fit like this, I had to trim the hanger and remove the rubber sleeves for it to fit.

The car felt great. Just took it around the block. Open downpipe. No issues, didn't take it past 3k. Just my own "break in" period. But the motor wanted more. Can't wait to take it for a longer drive.

 

Videos are off the phone horrible quality. Will get better ones up. Turn up the sound!
