Nice one tim...

 

At least you can hold your turbo one handed :quagmire:

 

 

The extra work you put into the turbo should be worth it :D

 

 

cheers mate :D

it spool very early and hit max at around 6000rpm

 

I bet yours are no lesser ;)

The original watercooled oilcooler, mounted on the engine block under the oilfilter, is sometimes creating a problem and has to be removed. It could be a problem with the function, available space etc. In my case the reason is a heavily tuned engine with high boost pressure. This create a very high local temperature rise. Let us call it a local thermal water explosion. This local temperature rise create a high local pressure in the cooling system and this could make the original oilcooler crack and cause a water/oil leak.

 

There are some ways to solve this problem, this is how I chose to do it:

 

Original oilcooler is hidden under the intake manifold and behind the alternator.

Original oilcooler. It is mounted on the block with 4 bolts.

img4caec226a91fb.jpg

 

Here it has been dismounted.

img4a47ca15eb3f7.jpg

 

A close up to show how it looks behind the oilcooler. It is important to remove all trace of old gaskets and paint. The mating surface must be smooth and clean since this is the surface where the oilfilter/sandwich plate is sealing snug and tight.

In the centre you can spot the original stud. This is to be dismantled (twist it out like a screw).

In Nissan FAST software, part 15213P is found. This part is only used on engines without an original oilcooler mounted on the engine block.

img4caec8fb38a78.jpg

 

It is named "Stud, oil filter" and Nissans part number according to Nissan is 15213-W040A. I have ordered one and will test it to be 100% sure it is the correct part.

The valve I will mount in the filter holder.

Stud, 15213-W040A, mounted in the block (the four bolts and the gasket shall be removed).

Now you can select if you would like to use only a filter, an external oilcooler, a filter relocation kit or a combination with all of them.

 

I use them all.

An awesome find and solution on the filter side of things Tim!

 

There is also a cooler less oil filter mount (for lack of a better term) from u12 spec CA18's I believe. Could possibly be Exa.

 

Will post pictures of the unit when I can.

 

But many kudo's on your build! And will probably follow this route when I build my CA up.

Yesterday I was informed the new R-tyres are on their way and they should be delivered to me today. The flush fit wheel air valves have also been shipped. Soon time to get it all assembled and balanced. Exciting :)

 

I have that kind of valve on my other wheels too and they bring a nice touch to it.

It turned out very well with the flush valves on the new wheels I use for the R-tyres. Pictures to be posted after next round in the garage. I will have to remember to always keep the air fill adatper in the car from now on.

 

When the tyres were mounted on to the rims, they had to pump them up to more than 4 Bar of pressure. It sounded like a big cannon in the tyre shop. My poor ears...I wasn't prepared at all... at least not when the first tyre went on.

Mounted some parts. It will be ok but as shown, there is lots to adjust regarding wheel alignment and I will also adjustthe track both front and rear. At the rear, there is plenty of Camber but still a slight gap between the tyre and the fender. At the front, there is also some space for adjustments. I will decide how much I want to slam the car when the coilovers have settled. The steering angle has improved with the spacers mounted on the inner tie rods.

You are very lucky, it seems as if you have an unlimited budget for this car. It should be perfect when you are done :)

But once its finished you are probably going to get bored and will want to build more and more ;)

 

 

Your garage is pretty sweet as well, would be perfect if you had a car hoist in there too

Whats with the wide body when you dont have wheels wide enough to fill stock guards?!?!

 

 

To resolve the issue you had with the inline oil cooler problem i went a different route (first off i used the non in line cooler filter adaptor which bolts into place, then i got myself one of the Growly fittings, this way you have lines coming straight out of the block to a oil filter relocater, then to the oil cooler then back to the block. so much neater.

Take some time to read a bit more. I have wheels wide enough.

Thanks for the information about the adapter :)

Wow... All I can say is wow!!!.... Just read this whole thread, totally worth my time. Great build thread mate and good on you for posting pics and descriptions to help out others while your building your beast. This car will be an absolute monster when you are finished. I cannot wait to see the pics and videos when its done! Are you going to get the whole car resprayed ? or just have the guards/skirts painted the same colour as the rest of the car ? Keep up the good work man.

ps... I wish I had your income :P

Thanks bro :D

 

Yes I will track it with small woll ribbons attached to the body and a video to spot the airflow.

 

Differential pressure gauge to measure the pressure changes.

 

A digital scale with remote reading to measure travel up and down.
