Damn nice rs13! I want to see it done. Smile
Ur rear spoiler looks like GT-R HCR32 OEM spoiler, perfect touch BTW, maybe because it seems a lot of that of the type-x rear spoiler.

Cheers!

Do you have any exterior shots of the car with that hood from farther back?

Well I have. a guy trying to screw me over on the th400 trans, I'm getting my money back, I think I'm going to purchase a powerglide with a trans brake and a 3500 stall. I believe it will make more power and with the turbo setup with gearing of the stock r200 rear end.

Well I got the motor set down last night, I got my crossmember finally notched so I could set the motor back as far as possible for my turbo clearance. Im going to run into some major hood clearance issues, Looks like a 6" hood scoop is in the future. I just throwed a junky carb i had laying around on it and my turbo hat. Its 6" above my strut towers.

Im going to cut my motor mounts down another 1/4 inch

I got my oil pan return bung welded in. So the turbo is almost complete. Now I'm just waiting on the powerglide to arrive so I can finish it.

dude, im sorry, but threw is the past tense of throw. the word you are looking for is "through" as in blow through carb. i usually try not to be a grammar Nazi but this is just plain wrong.

threw is the past tense of throw. are you throwing stuff through your motor? i guess the air from the turbo could be considered "thrown". anyway, nice build. its great to see progress! its a hella impressive setup no matter what its called.
