      Been offered a built k24 for a good price, that’d be piss funny, 4 cyl drag Commodore haha. Definitely something to think about after it does the needed

        I thought you had a built K24 from the kit car you were building? I'd love to see a K24 in this, imagine the butthurt over that.

          Nah, that motor is gone (never even got to Australia) It’s definitely something I’ll look at once the current motor has done what it needs to do and the 2j also completes its goal

            It;s not a bad idea at all.
            an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

              Caliper mounts arrived from BMAK today, one set in 8mm and one set in 10mm. I think the 8’s will be fine. Big thanks!

                      Moved the starter button up to the cage to make it easier to start from outside the car

                        Decided to upgrade the m8 bolt for the trans crossmember to m12.

                          What muffler did you use in the exhaust? Is it bearable for street use?

                            Last meeting, it was too loud imo to drive around with a similar muffler in 4” and nothing past the muffler. Now it tapers to 3 1/2 and a 3 1/2 pipe to the diff. Over the weekend I hope to put some kms on it and bed in the brakes. Will know more then.

                              Interested to hear your thoughts after a bit of driving. My current jz exhaust is second hand 3 inch mild steel mashed together and two decent mufflers, I've been looking to re-do it, but I also don't want the car un-bearabe on the road.

                                At the end of the day, a 3 1/2 or 4 inch exhaust is going to be less than ideal, noise wise. A lot of this car is set up for the next motor. For the current motor, the tyres are too big, the rear gear is too tall and the converter too tight. Unless you’re after more than 6-700hp, 3 inch would be fine, preferably with two decent mufflers.
