Yeah definitely. Will need to get some better tires before then. I hate shifting hard though ha ha, makes me wince with the wimpy T5.
There is a motorkhana event I'd like to do around the april time too with my old skyline club.
Did you glue the flywheel bolts in? if not that will be your leak. Car looks great, now the question is how quick is it?
Mate the shop did the engine/tranny build/install. It's only a small leak but I'd like to get on top of it now.
Look, it's not quick quick by any means. I have driven some pretty fast cars and this isn't a fast car. But then again it a pretty stock motor really. Judging by AU XR8's that have similar mods and cam, they are making anywhere from 240-270rwhp depending on a few different factors. But I guess we will find out soon.
I can see myself supercharging this thing in the near future if I can find a decently priced Kenne Bell piece.
Given its a one piece seal engine my bet is on the fly wheel bolts which is an easier fix, and often overlooked, but still a box out job, unless of course its coming from the back of the manifold or rocker covers.
And you blokes say I write long posts. Power to the long posters I say!
Nice work on the car. It looks nice an neat which generally is an indication of a lot of thinking and good workmanship. Just one thing, those wheels. They don't really suit the car and you should sell them- to me for instance ;-)

Thanks for the kind words. A lot of though and research was put in to the overall mechanical build and match up of parts. The exterior of the car is still a 10 footer though, does look good in pictures but.
The wife prefers coupes... that's all that matters
I was starting to think that I was "in touch with my feminine side", then I remembered that I liked the early hardtops (64 1/2 - 68) because that is what was racing here when I was involved in the sport ......
Glad I can still remember something ......
