Hosted a Carlisle prep event this weekend at the shop.
Did some software updates, fog light installs, maintenance and quick run throughs.
Got some more parts for the turbo build. -4 and -6 speed seal PTFE hose with steel ends. Went over to my neighbors and he showed me how to install the hose ends. He has an RB26 swapped 240 and he's done this before. :lol:
Slide the hose end over the line, and fray the braid outward to fit the brass olive.
Press the brass olive over the hose inner liner.
Push the fitting into the inner liner, add a little oil to the threads and tighten it down. And you have a nice clean hose end.
Only did the block side of the lines. Not positive on turbo location so I'm leaving the other end open until it's mounted and I know exactly what length and turbo side fittings I need.
Those 90s Nissan's still look brilliant, especially the S15 – it's aged beautifully. So many are banged up wannabe drift machines, but the clean ones you see now and then are hot, and 17 yo me still wants one.
The manifold was the most complicated and important part to get done. And it's done! Matty said about 20 hours into it. Still have to make the full exhaust, intake tubing and compressor to intercooler piping, and then finish up the turbo oil/coolant lines. Should be 2 more weeks or so and it will be ready to run.
