dude, i can't say how much I enjoy watching your builds... exactly what i would do if i had the skill/$/time... :)
I like the Titan, but i think your truck would look soo mean with 15x8's zero offset! low and wide!!!
IMHO, 18's are just too tall for our trucks....
either way, truck looks sick! can't wait for progress!

I wish my old rims would fit with the disc,I like that look plus I still have them. But the titans are kinda not what I want now but there on so I'll wait till I find a look I like.

How big a wheel do you need to fit over your discs?
Will 16's fit? maybe some Nismo/Rays 16x7.5" bronzies?? :)

Thanks. I put my old rims on and they fit over the caliper,there 16's and have a good amount of room. The only thing I saw that was a problem it the back spacing and the way the back is shaped to clear the caliper. But I'm sure there is a better way.

Thanks Man, I have alot of hours in it and alot more to go. The motor set runs just under 2k for everything, but for the 520 you'll need to run a different turbo and exhaust manifold, other than afew small things. I wouldn't recomend it for someone with a nice running 520 and see it not finished.

I'll post up pic's this week of how I have it now, been busy at my shop.

lol....I was just being funny.....I make disc brake kits that will fit 14's....pretty tiny compared to what you're running :)

Lovin' that clean coil over setup!

Here's how far I've got,Wired,fuel lines ran,all wires from front to rear and wrapped in power braid,brake lines are 95% done,going to hide alot of the lines and ready to be bleeded, still need to do exhaust and waiting for a throttle body,one Injector(I broke the little tip on one) and the IC piping and I can start it. Soon as it starts I'll kick it into overdrive and get it all Done and Finished.

Ya me too everytime I open the garage I have a moment and just look at what I built. The tires ya are gone but there just for mock-up,when it starts and drives I'm putting some BFG KDW's or some nitto's.

KDW's for the win!! I've been running those and the original G-Force T/A's for a while now- nothing stickier! just don't try to drift with those in the rear!! They'll slide for about 30 seconds and then when they get warm, you'll grip and go into a wall!! :)

I like thoes tires! I'm not a drifter it's kinda gay to me,I'm more of a straight line and like when people look at my truck,but that's me!
