During every car build there is a time to stockpile car parts and then there is a time to use all those parts. But what happens when life puts you unexpectedly into the waiting area for several years? That is what happened to me a few years ago. I was absolutely hoarding parts for my Nissan Skyline R34. But I had no time to install them: LS ignition system, Link G4 ECU with digital knockblock and map sensor, AEM wideband lamda sensor, several different aftermarket gauges and so much more. Even worse, instead of the smallest amount of progress the stockpile of work to do on the car just got more.
The keen observer will not only notice many different parts from aero to suspension and from brakes to a fully build engine, but an empty wheel well where a fuel cell, a subframe and a wheel should be. Fact is, it really hurts me to see all of those parts which – what feels like in ancient time – once were a working car. Another fact is that family always comes first and when family calls, everything else has just to step back and wait.
There it sits. My last major investment and the point where everything fell apart, twice. After my second major engine failure I decided to get it done properly, once and for all. But as soon as it was finished I was hesitant to put an expensive engine like that in a regular Nissan Skyline R34 Chassis. One thing led to another and suddenly I was here – and now.
And now is the time to get it all together! Okay, okay, maybe not really now, but soon. Soon enough to take all of you with me on my journey! Next step is the disassembly of the front suspension… *cough* even more disassembling…
