I'm going to bombard you all with photo's. from the early days of owning my Skyline. There will be wheel upgrade, brakes, front flare install, and a current motor upgrade. My motto is I only want to do it twice.
Here's where I did something 4 times rear brakes and working on a 5th
1.metal caliper adapters for a 810 or 910
2. Z 32 or R33 set it up for 12 oclock mount wrong.
3. 510 Brembo rear mounts not shown bolt spacing to small.
4. Custom made rear Brembo with no parking brake

I've wanted a finned diff cover for years. After 10 years of looking I found one .

I had been planning on a RB 3.3 with throttle bodies and a nice stainless steel header. I had collected almost all the part to build the motor except the RB 26 cylinder head. I stopped by my local Engine builder who I've know for more than 30 years. As we where talking about the engine build. Let me back up a little bit my good friend was encouraging me to go a different route. He said keep it and L based motor. The car might have a higher value if to maintain a L based motor. Back to where I was. Talking to Dave the engine builder about the RB and the HP it would produce. He turned the conversation to a new cylinder head that a guy out of Florida was making. He went on to say it's a twin cam 4 valve. So long long story really short I decided on a 3.5 Liter twin cam 4 valve cylinder head that out flows the other head Better known as the Datsunworks head. The last time I drove the car was to take my 10 year old to a local ice cream shop that was last Oct. I would like to say I been busy and a lot has gotten done but you can be the judge. Lets began the prep work. Some where along the way I stared to strip the paint and primer the car. The body can see all the flaws
I miss my little truck.
5 layers of paint on the hood

I leaned the motor over to the other side to gain more room for the induction system and I figured that if it worked for the S20 engine it would work for me. There is a little more to it than that but maybe later. it leaned over 10 degrees to the 1 o'clock position I modified the cross member and one of the motor mounts. The mock up block is a LD 28 so the height was right for both the hood clearance and the header.
A little valve cover logo change

Maybe one day I can sell all of my other cars and afford a DOHC motor to be cool like you
Can't wait to hear it and go for a ride.....

No it's NOS from Nissan I'll have to modify it a little bit. What's interesting is the air box has the air horns in cover section and not in the plate.
