finished up the tube front ready for fully welding and paint it ended up warping abit but nothing abit of force couldn't fix. so this means finally the front is 100% done my welds arnt the best but a grinder sorted them.

also i bought a pre made half cage to modify into a full cage just waiting for it to turn up

What were the intercoolers made for? R35? They look sweet.

Has anybody tried to fit a VR38 inlet manifold to a VG?

its just a cheepy from aliexpress made for the z32 i dont want to ruin my good z1 sidemounts so putting that one on. someone has probably put an r35 one in but it seems they like to add a massive price tag with anything that has r35 on it

They're reasonably cheap on Yahoo without the throttle bodies, that's why I asked. I've seen people fit them to VQs but they're more closely related.

My son has bought stuff from Yahoo Japan. There is an English version. Apparently there is a guy who brings in containers from Japan, so you buy it on line get it sent to him and he packs it and brings it in a container. Adriaans experience was not to good as the part missed the first shipment and they forgot the second so it took about 6 months to arrive. But I would hope that was a one off. If you want details around this I can ask him. Otherwise you get them to ship it just like ebay stuff.

Look up Moonlight Racing, Jessie Streeter or Import Monster. It will end up costing you probably double the auction price all up.

I've used both jesse streeter and moonlight before both awesome and easy to deal with, get yourself a paypal and you send a link to them for the auction, tell them how much to bid to and they'll give you a rough quote for shipping :)
