It’s been months since my Skyline has been buttoned up, trouble-shot, tuned and detailed. But I never closed the book on the 500WHP Project here on the blog. That’s a loose end I think I should tie up right about now.
I wish I noticed it. I should have. It should have been me. It’s my car and I was trying to be extra attentive that day.
When we were bombing the track at Motorsports Ranch a few weeks ago at Skyline Nationals 2015 (I still need to write a blog post about that meet!) it was 2 days after the car got out of PowerDynamix in McKinney, TX having a ton of work done. I was already a bit nervous to take the car out and bash on it without any real shakedown test before hand. If an oil line or the new fuel rail started leaking, or worse…broke, I would have been in a precarious situation nearly 2 hours’ drive from home. So I was paying extra close attention to the smells, sounds and scenes of fluid leaks.
Or, at least, I thought I was.
In Part I we left off with my GT-R waiting for some parts to arrive before Jeff at Powerdynamix could get started doing the heavy work on the car. But one of the parts I’d dropped off with him, along with the car, was the new Comp Stage 2 clutch. Jeff wasted no time.
Let the chain-modding begin.
Those of you readers located in ‘MURICA might already know that the first annual Skyline Nationals meet is happening in about a month.
Those of you who actually read this blog also are well aware that a few weeks ago it was revealed to me that my car is running scary lean on it’s current tune. (A chipped Tomei ECU).
Well, herein lies the effort to prepare for the former while remedying the latter.
