Decided to change the 2.5 inch downpipes to 3 inch and get rid of the reducer. Old downpipe on the right, new on the left:



So here's what it looks like now with the 3 inch ones on:





Also got some moulds taken of the bodywork so we can get various parts reproduced in fibreglass or kevlar and save some weight (plus go wider on the arches, as I'm not keen on the small number of existing wide arch kits I found)











For now we just got moulds of the roof and the rear quarters, as the rest of the bits like front arches and bumpers etc I can take down to the guys that did these moulds whenever suits me. Probably going to get the doors and bumpers done in kevlar, as on a drift car those panels get damage quite often so fibreglass isn't ideal

I haven't seen a wide body kit that I really like for the Z. I'm eager to see how yours's turn out.

It isn't going to be anything crazy tbh, not sure how much it will appeal to other people but I guess we'll see

In other news, I got one of the wastegates on today and will do the other tomorrow

Got the second wastegate welded on today:





Oh and the oil cooler and power steering cooler turned up (actually meant to order the longer version of the PS cooler but this tiny one arrived and I'm wondering if it will do or if I need to swap it for the one that's twice the length). The oil cooler is quite large (34 row) because I had a 25 row on this engine/turbo setup when it was in the 350Z and oil temps did get a little high. Looking at the recommended size for oil coolers for various HP levels on one of the oil cooler manufacturers websites, they actually suggested an even larger one than this, but I think for the sake of space I'll try this one for now. Its not like the old 25 row one was terrible for temps, it just could have been a little better.
