Change up #55... gonna build another bottom end for the track car...

After puking a quart of oil a day into the catch can (exaggerated) after getting on the gas some, the compression in the NB yielded 158:155:160:125... guess I couldn't expect any better on a 220k motor.

So, the block built for the track car has 8.6:1 Supertechs and belfab rods - prefect for a build street car. Also to mention, when machining the block, the cylinders were not bored with pistons in hand for proper clearance... it was also not decked when bored. So we're going to swap the current built block and put it in the NB, then take the block from the NB and start over doing it right, using Trackspeed provided Manely rods and the 11:1 Supertechs.

What's another several grand

You're boosting an 11:1 engine or pussing out (aka: a hustler) and building an N/A track car?

just get custom pistons.

11:1 shelf pistons wont be as heavy duty as a set of turbo pistons.

What front fenders are those? They look less aggressive than the AWR fenders I currently run on my FP car. I would like to put a smaller flare on, those look like they might do the job.

I regret choosing 9.5:1 pistons and not the 11:1 :(

How long till motor and ECU are done? If it takes longer then doing those, then no, otherwise start on it and if it is done before engine and ecu are done use it, if not then keep going with 6 speed.

Inbound package your way, courtesy of Love Stuff!

I showed Collin this, but why am I so tempted to buy this for spec 350z? It's a track package 2002, runs great - $5500

Barf, Nissan? I've hated every and any Nissan I've ever worked on, only one of which I've actually owned. I will NEVER own one again, and would never suggest it to anyone.

Actually getting around to working on the cars. Pulled engine block will be prepped for the track car. The block I had intended to use is going in the nb, along with the 6spd... bu-bye auto
