The GTR is in phase 1 of the build...audio/video upgrade...here are a couple pics of the equipment.  Not much...I wanted it to be kept simple and stealthy.  More pics were shot by the installer and I'll post those once he gets them to me.  Not shown are the JL Cleansweep, AdvancePerformance's Ipod Aux Video and Video in Motion module, and front camera (thanks to Adrey on the last two).  Enjoy...more pics to come...

The HERTZ Mille 3-way component set for doors and A-pillar (the A-pillar pod had to be modified for the Hertz tweeter since it is almost twice the size of OE)

Posted Image

The HERTZ crossover - That is only for one side - there are 2 of these bad boys and they are almost as large as the JL amps (see second pic as comparison)
Posted Image
Posted Image

JL HD750/1 (for sub) and JL HD600/4 (for Hertz Mille front stage) - These guys are tiny but great SQ
Posted Image
Posted Image

The JL13TW5 - in a sealed enclosure firing through the stock Bose rear center grill
Posted Image
Posted Image

The sound deadening material - the doors were done and per the installer sound coming from the doors is significantly better

I just got the GTR back from the audio/video installer. I only had it for about 15 minutes for the drive from his shop to the detailer shop. I dropped it off there for wash, clay, paint correction, and wax...probably won't see it until tomorrow night. On Monday, it's scheduled for 1000 mile break-in check @ Nissan...then on Thursday it'll go to the tuner house for tear down...getting ready for upholstery, paint, lighting upgrades, and other miscellaneous crap we are thinking of...

The full exhaust will be ordered Monday, the wheels are being built, and a pretty big order from GT-RR should be coming in soon...too much to list down...you'll just have to wait and see... :bounce: (Thanks Kristoffer and Ben)

Here are some pics of the audio stuff...a couple of things...the a-pillar tweeter pods and the rear trunk panel (temporary trim panel) were left raw since the upholsterer is going to get them wrapped in suede or leather anyway. The Ipod video works great...Thanks Adrey...my installer just has to make a switch so that I can toggle between Ipod video and the front camera.

Also...sound deaden the doors...makes a big difference. As far as how it sounds...for the 15minutes I had it in my hands it sounded good. I think that with more seat time and breakin of the speakers there will be room for tuning of the sound and tweaking the crossover points for the mids and highs...we still might add an Audio Control parametric EQ with remote if we need to fine more than the head unit can allow.

I'll also post some pics of the paint correction of the GTR after I get it back...from the first once over by the detailer...there are a lot of superficial scratches on the clear coat on the hood, top of the fenders, trunk, and roof...well pretty much the whole car. Seems the dealer ran the GTR through a couple of car washes...and wiped it down with a couple of rags they found on the ground.

I can't wait for the upholsterer to get his hands on it...looking at it in unfinished form irritates me but it does sound much better.  With the suede and French stitching, it will definitely feel more like a 90k car...

Nice build, make sure you get 3" intake as stock or 2.75" intake can hit saturation voltage with stock turbo tune.

Stopped by the shop today to meet with the upholsterer again...he marked off the car with a silver marker to designate material type we are going to use to replace stock.  Basically, everything is getting re-skinned.  We agreed to use Porsche OE black leather (very consistent leather that is blemish free) and real black alcantara.

We are getting rid of the suede in the current seat locations and going with double stitched diamond/biscuits with deviated stiching...the current "cod piece" on the drivers side seat that is leather we are switching to alcantara along with the perforated sides of the seats.  Also, we are duplicating that "cod piece" on the passenger side, too...strange they did not do that from the factory.

I think I am more excited about the interior changes more than the exterior right now...may change...probably until the Switzer P800 project part starts kicking in...:)

Looks great man!

I am thinking of doing my interior as well. Are you going to cover the plastic dash in suede as well? That is my only complaint is the textured plastic.

Not sure if you have seen this. There was a thread on here with the interior.

Yup I've seen that thread...love it!  Yes we are going over that crap dash with suede and nice french stitching (deviated red).   We had a long discussion about making sure that the interior was plush but not tacky.  I have a lot of confidence that we are on the same page.  He did my Suburban and love it!
