Datto coming along nicely. New tunnel is, hard lines for e85 and rear mounted oil cooler in. Relocated brakes lines so i could fit a steering box brace and the stroker motor is almost ready to go in.

Update:
Rb25 box all fabricated and ready to install. Floor cut, tunnel in and recessed the firewall a smidge to allow nice easy access and room for the head drain kit.
Slowly coming together.
In the meantime an R32 GTS-4 with an rb25 conversion has found its way into my garage as a new daily :O

I like to check in here and update where im at with this car.

All of the turbo gear is off getting ceramic coated and powder coated. 1, because of heat and 2, because for some stupid reason i tried to make the car look pretty and can just stop now.

Ditched the water methanol kit as it was over complicated, another system to maintain in the car and much more power is to be had on e85. Even though we only get it in drums up here.

First round of flares arrived..i hated them! So i got in touch with Steve Darheim who made me a specific set like on his race car.

Still waiting on the rb gearbox adaptor to arrive which is halting the plans to install the stroker and turbo gear. grrrr!

Against my better judgement i installed some rather expensive 7inch led head lights with halo rings and flashing amber turn signals. Super easy to install and the light quality is just unreal. Im not a fan of the look when the lights are off but when the DRL are on it look good...growing on me...pics to come!

Now looking at some wider wheels....one of the most painful things to get right!

Both will be up for grabs in the near future.

Car ran a pb of 12.1 with a 1.9 60ft. Gearbox held up well doing 17 passes in total and powerskids over the 3 days. Nothing broke!

Coming off the back of Northern Nats plans are in full swing to do the rb25 gearbox swap. Adaptor plate ordered and new tunnel is here.
I have also decided to fit a Water/Meth direct port injection system with the stroker build.
A new turbo has been purchased gtx3076 gen 3 along with another 6 boost manifold...top mount this time and a 3 inch dump from Andrew Denniss.
I have also purchased some flares and will be fitting wider tyres on too..15x9 at this stage.

New tyres ready for the track on saturday. Haven't bothered with drag radials for fear of stressing the already stressed stumpy gearbox. Fitted some Federal rsrr's.
Also forgot to post pics of Chris Adams (LOSTU) Caltracs that he made for me. They have made all the difference with tramping and launching!
