Our freshly appointed apprentice was set to work to begin with. Bonnet off and the fluids drained the first day and the task of removing the SR20, its wiring lume, radiator, power steering set up and air conditiong system was all left up to him.
Before the pannel work went back on the call was made and the battery was relocated to the boot. The wire tuck for the car was done with the front guards off whch is how we feel they shou
ld be done. This wire tuck went another step further and the lume was cut and re run through the chasis rail then the entire lume re-soldered
nnel. Along with that mod the gearbox tunnel needs a serious level of adjustment with a hammer to allow the bigger bell housing in and a custom made transmission crossmember is needed. These were all sorted in house with the flash fabrication skills of some top notch staff members.
As far as the running gear was concerned there was all the little bits left to go. Turbo was mounted after a day was spent replacing exhaust manifold studs and driling out broken exhaust mounting studs. (If you ever have an RB25 out of a car change the exhaust studds whilst it is out) The exceedy heavy duty clutch was fitted, rear main and transmisison fitted. Then the throttle body fitted and plumed up with with the plazmaman plenium.
After a week we were about to drop the motor in. The brake master cylinder was removed to allow the huge manifold in and the steering rack was dropped to allow the sump to clear without hitting the rack. Then the motor went in. With the motor in and bolted up the plumbing and wiring are next.
