Well as ive been mentioning of late,
i'm starting to mod the car gently at the minute.
I've already added a stainless dual bore turbo elbow,a de-cat pipe
and a Blitz dump valve.They've been on a while.
But seeing as though it's Christmas,it's an ideal excuse to spend money!!!
So I have.

My Chrimbo goodies are:

1. Gizzmo Special Edition IBC - bought.
2. HKS Super Powerflow Re-Loaded induction kit - ordered yesterday.
3. Nismo clear front bumper indicators and side repeaters (hopefully next week)

Nothing major folks,but it's a nice gentle start for me. :bigthumb:

Next up when i get my money through will be a downpipe and a full exhaust,probs all HKS.

My HKS induction kit arrived today folks.
When i took it out of the box man its MASSIVE!!!
Didnt realise they were quite so big.
Then i clicked.
I must admit that i was expecting it to be the 150mm version...
oh i've only been sent the 200mm version - WOO HOO!!!
This filter is just under 8 inches wide.
I've got to wait till Wednesday night to get into Mark Priors garage to bolt it on though :(
Will post up before,during and after pics when its done.:bigthumb:
I just want it on so i can hear the damn thing -lol-!!!

lol we'll get that on in no time
Champion Mark,
It's all made up with the support brackets etc.
They just need tightening in place when we get the oem box off.

I had a Blitz SUS cone filter on my STi mate - was canny.
I've heard a lot about the HKS super power flow kit,
so i've opted for this one for now on the Skyline mate.

Yeah i can't wait to get the boost controller fitted aswel.
However,i think i'll hold out till my claim comes thru,
which is when i'll be buying a downpipe and full exhaust system.
Then i'll get them all fitted together.
These little bits will make the car a bit more pokey with a few extra bhp.

I take it you are a 'conehead' rather than a 'mushroomhead' then?

LOL - mate- !!!

Well my new HKS induction kit is now fitted and working.
Big thanks to Mark Prior - enjoy the cans mate - THANK YOU :bigthumb:
Thanks to his son Rees,bursting a balloon,i very nearly dropped the bonnet on Marks head!!!

Really loud tremendous newly addictive induction roar. :boogy:
Sounds great and i'm very happy with the result.
As promised here are the uploaded BEFORE,DURING and AFTER pics.

BEFORE,with standard OEM air box.



DURING,with OEM air box removed.



Finally,a couple of AFTER pics with HKS Super Power Flow Reloaded induction kit fitted.





Man this 200mm version of the filter fits mm perfect.
Believe it or not,it is not actually touching the washer bottle,or the standard intercooler pipe.
It also does not touch the bonnet when closed either!!!
Who's a clever lad then Mark!!!:bigthumb:

Next up are my clear Nismo front indicators and side repeaters.
I'm picking those up tomorrow thanks to Worpdrive.

Gizmo is a happy little Mowgwai at the min.

Ha ha!!! Now it's funny you should say that Chris.
Coz thats exactly what Mark said to me on the way home mate.
Something along the lines of this...

"Just wait till you get your boost controller on and up the boost Neil, it will make the induction kit and dump valve louder.
Then even moreso when you fit your exhaust and downpipe.
Pretty soon after you will be thinking about a FMIC and a re-map from RSP...etc etc etc"

Not only is Mark a friendly helpful mechanically minded friend of mine, but he is now also my modification FINANCIAL ADVISOR - LOL -!!!
