I bought the car in july of 2012 with a stock 20 and 25 turbo, slapped in some seats a steering wheel and some arms. drove it 4 times last year and then blew the 25 turbo.


Decided i wanted more power and went for the td06.


had it tuned at East coast customs and it made 217.5kw at 18psi


I drove it for 4 laps before it wouldnt boost Plan is to take it back to ECC and chuck it on the dyno and see whats up with it.

Update time



a few things have changed.

i now have Gktech Subframe collars in, s14 tie rods and ends.

I also ended up getting my manifold machined as it warped because i couldnt fit a nut over one of the studs. (which is now fixed and has a nut on it)

i had the fuel pumped earthed aswell.

sold the GTR wing and bought a dmax boot spoiler then painted the car.


and then finally took it for a test drive

it seems the fuel pump was the issue

took it to ECC for a retune and it was running rich, now its all fixed

booked in for morning sesh on the 31st

also going to get rego on it at the end of the year,

so i might run the uras kit for the next few months than go to aero with standard front bar and ca lip


heres some pictures

Nice. Looking at the same turbo on my RB20 S13. When does boost come on with the TD06? Want around 220kw but still be super responsive as going to be doing a fair bit of hillclimb/circuit with it.

Long time no update

lots of things have changed,


chucked a button clutch in , a half cage, got all my bars fully painted, had straight pipe made up by Nathan At Fabulous Fabrications, and did matsuri over the weekend.


had the best time drifting ive ever had, pushed my self heaps.


issues i ran into were a nut on the end of the manifold came loose and i didint relise, warped the manifold, spent all of saturday night and sunday driving with a huge exhaust leak , also i think one of my rear hoses has a leak, was pouring coolant out everywhere and my handbreak doesnt work.


so all in all it was a great weekend.


heres some photos and a video


i probabaly wont do much to the car for a while as im going to japan on the 7th of next month :)

Looking at trying to get this running a bit cooler coming into summer, currently thinking of getting a thinner radiator and getting 2 spal ones one for the back and one for the front.

anybody have any other ideas? nismo thermostat?


hoping now to have it registered by december so i can take it out for the all day session in december:)

rb20 groupie love :wub:


twin themo fans with 'S' blades and extra cooling pipe from the metal lines that bolt under on the manifold


what i have is a 32mm lobster back pipe that goes from the last cooling port thats bolted onto the intake manifold to the bit where the top rad hose bolts on has worked well for cooling

havent updated in ages


ended up registering the car in december, and had a few things done to it.


got a new koyo rad and some decent thermos on the back pulling to help with the heat issues, chucked a muffler on it for regolyf and its sounds perfect for the street.


also sold the zenkais and bought some new wheels but have to wait for them to arrive from streeter:)

pretty happy with everything at the moment, just a few little bits and pieces to clean up and ill be stoked with it.


will update with photos in next post.

should probably update this a bit more


recently did a morning session in March, my wheels hadn't arrived so i was using a mates AVS's and a heap of tyre pile skidders which were sketchy as

still had an awesome time, did some tandems for the first time and up getting tboned and destorying my steering rack. (no serious damage)

Decided to pull out the crossmember and rack all together and then pulled out the LCA's and Knuckles to be modded.

im hoping to have them all back shortly so i can re assemble the car.


also sold my CA lip and then traded my turbo front bar for A mint condition genuine Aero front bar which which i'm super stoked i got.


my new wheels also arrived to Sydney from Streeter yesterday so they should be here very soon


heres some photos from morning sesh and ill chuck up some other photos tomorrow :)

Update time


cars almost back on the ground i ended up having some issues with the steering shaft and all the power steering lines because the crossmember had been moded, but it now has the rack moved forward, extended LCAS And modded Knuckles, new LCA balljoints, new Tie rods and Ends, new Rack Bushes and Swaybar bushes so it should be a whole new car to drive, also spent last weekend fitting up the front bar. i didnt want to trim the aero bar because it was in immaculate condition but i did one measurement and cut it perfect so it doesnt look dodgy.

Ordered some steer tyres today so hoping to have it all back on the ground by next wednesday and have the kit painted by next weekend.
