Engine/parts are scheduled to be back from the machine shop by the end of next week! Assembly still has to happen and I assume things like the graded bearings will have to be ordered from Nissan so there is still some more time to wait.

Modifying the stock triple gauges and ended up with this.




I need to swap on the silver trim ring for this one.

It's gonna bug the **** out of me for a while that the ECF-1 uses white led's and the other 2 gauges use amber but I'll get over it.

How long have you been waiting on your motor?

My issue isn't the wait, my issue is my expectations were incorrectly set. 4-6 weeks was what was quoted. 50% deposit for the short block was placed the 18th December, but that's Christmas time so I'm not even counting that. I changed things up and ended up doing a long block, the heads and cams/springs were delivered to them mid January. So I realize some delay is on me. The balance for everything was squared up on Jan 18th.

It appears their machine shop is swamped. The motor parts are still there as of yesterday.

I haven't given up hope yet, just sucks that I am the only one communicating. I've worked retail/customer service all my life and I really feel bad for Chase (the guy that answers their phone), he is doing the best he can with what little he has. Whenever it does ship out I gotta send him some rum, I know he needs it

Got some work done over the long weekend we had here


After removing some material from the inner trim ring I just used a ton of hot glue to secure the gauges


I was busting my brain to figure out how to hold a nut on the back side of this when I remembered these speed nut clips. Worked like a charm.


Here they are installed and wired up. Just need to get some double sided tape to put on the cover pieces


The fuel pressure sensor wouldn't fit straight out the front or the side of the regulator. Unfortunately the oil temp and pressure sensor wires will need a little extending but that's not the end of the world.

More little **** to keep my mind off the wait.





I'll be changing out the hoses to the silicone but I wanted to make sure the BOV plumbing all worked out.


Using the passenger side 8mm port that fed the EVAP stuff to supply the FPR and boost gauge. The drivers side will feed the boost control solenoid


Which I mounted where the one of the EVAP solenoids was.


Since this AC line was quite close to the drivers side exhaust manifold heat shield I decided to get some DEI fire sleeve. This is the 1" ID velcro version. I'll grab some rescue tape today to tape up the ends

Update is now that the engine parts should be back from the machine shop early next week.

Snugging up the fitting on the return side let me know I didn't tighten the bulkhead enough. So after removing the whole assembly and RFT'ing the bulkhead nut, everything is wired up and plumbed so I don't need to go back in here except to check for leaks when that day comes.

*edit* not sure why the embedded feature wont work

Active exhaust. I’ll be drilling a hole or 2 in the plate so it doesn’t completely block exhaust flow when closed. I have it on a double pole double throw switch.


I welded 2 aluminum vbands to the cut out valve so it’s modular and I can remove it if the car ends up not so loud with the 4” exhaust


Still finding consistency on stainless to be difficult but I am getting better

Short block is apparently done. The heads are scheduled to be back this week and apparently ready to ship out next week.

Hooray!

I have been using WAY too much heat in the past. This was done at 40amps and no sugaring on the inside save for a few spots where i slowed down and didn't back off the pedal.

I am going to be giving solar flux a try when i start to weld the actual exhaust together.

The plan for the weekend though is to get the motor back out so I can box up the turbo's to send up to Husam.

What a whirlwind last few days. Thursday night my boss tells me I MIGHT need to fly to Miami for the day to try and find an M.2 ssd for a stage lighting machine, the event is on Sunday night.

So I immediately go outside to pull the motor out of the car and remove the stock gtr turbos so I could take those with me.

No flights had seats on Friday so I get on the first flight out on Saturday which ended up being delayed by an hour. I get into Miami at 12:45pm and with the immigration line 4 miles long I got out of the airport at 4pm.

Never fly into Miami on a weekend

Dropped the turbos to Fedex and went hunting for this drive which I couldn’t find in that last minute scenario but I did at least get the stock turbos off to Husam.

Getting closer to the finish line!

Also enjoying this journey. If you're looking for something to do you could always re-loom and re-route all your engine bay wiring. Several posts on her with varying levels of intensity.

I am honestly not trying to go to that level. I’ve done that with past projects but for this one I am not trying to over complicate things. Stock wiring is good for me on this build.


Got the fuel system plumbed in the bay. I couldn’t find black silicone tape so I used blue to seal the ends of the fire sleeve to stop the fiberglass from eventually falling out.


One of the coolant lines with the fire sleeve treatment too
