    Dude sells a stack of Nissan stuff, new, and pretty fairly priced as well.. I think I remember seeing new R33 handbrake cables for $70..?
    Cheers mate, sorry for taking so long to reply. I checked it out but $140 for 2 cables still seemed a little steep to me. I ended up getting a pair second hand for $50 delivered. They're now installed, along with the rear 5 stud and brakes. All that's left is to install the conversion lines when they arrive and make a bracket for the end of the handbrake cables.

    I've been busy with uni lately, hence the lack of updates, but today I picked up my first go-fast bit for the LS1.









    I also picked up some low km second hand performance valve springs cheaply (I have a really tight budget for this build), so all that's left to get is some hardened pushrods and an LS2 timing chain upgrade. All of this will be installed once the car is engineered.

    O, the cam specs are
    232/242 duration at 0.050", 110 LSA, .540"/.530" lift
    Compared to stock which is
    202/210 duration at 0.050", 116 LSA, .496"/.496" lift

    The cam doesn't have a lot of lift but it has crazy duration. I'm hoping it will make good power and I'm pretty confident it'll have a wicked sounding idle

    New valve springs arrived a few days ago and I just ordered some Trickflow hardened chromoly pushrods after careful measurement of the new cam.

    The brake conversion lines also arrived, all that's left to do before rego is fix that broken caliper, install the conversion lines and new master cylinder, and make the adapter bracket for the handbrake cables.

    Another small update - I installed one of the rear braided brake lines







    It was a fairly simple process but I managed to smash my hand against the chassis pretty hard when undoing the line, so that was awesome XD

    I also flipped the connector for the low brake fluid sensor over to the correct side on my new master cylinder in preparation for installing it.



    Finally I start the car up every couple of weeks just to keep everything working and keep the battery charged so I took a quick vid of it idling and revving a bit. The white smoke is from really old E85 in the tank, the moisture it's absorbed is condensing in the cold exhaust.



    I love how the whole car rocks over when you rev the engine

    Thanks mate, I totally agree. Once it's rego'd it'll be going to twin 2.5" or maybe 3" tips

    This should stir up some comments XD





    My plan is to make a new intake manifold for the LS1 once it's registered, one with a vertical mounted throttle body and air filter and ^ that scoop.

    Then I'd like to have a reverse cowl scoop to cover it and ducktail wing. Sort of like the K20 powered S13:



    I've always liked seeing cars with bug catcher scoops and this one came up cheap on ebay The new sheet metal intake will make more power than the standard so it's not just a cosmetic mod... though mostly it is.

    I'm going for a sort of Mad Max look. Let me know what you think.
