      Big dumb wheels have been purchased.

      The car currently has 31x10.5r15 installed.

      I wanted bigger tyres for some mild off-road adventures.

      I’ve got a full set of basically brand new 33x12.5r15 tyres and some 15x8 -22 Sunraysia wheels.

      I did a quick test for this morning, trying to simulate the lift it’s going to get.

      the plan is to paint the wheels white.

          surely this thing is screaming out for some 80's jap alloy +0 goodness Timbo!! maybe even a spring over conversion


            Over the weekend I spent some time sorting the planned turbo and exhaust manifold setup.

            The old school j-pipe needed a few specific things to make it work.

            - a 280zx L28e exhaust manifold
            - a T04 flanged turbo
            - a 4 bolt external wastegate.

            I managed to track down a exh manifold from a Datto guy in the middle of nowhere. 280zx era with the EGR already plugged up. Win.

            I bought a Taiwanese brand ‘Mamba’ turbo flange adapter to fit my $175 China 3076 journal bearing turbo.

            and finally the 4 bolt external gate arrived from the USA.

            all the mating surfaces have been filed flat smooth.

            next I’m sorting the intake manifold and wiring
            the efi.
