Hi all, here's the probably slow and boring build thread I'm starting for my GT-R. Like a lot of you this has been my dream car since they were introduced. I was like many of you as well, I was raised and influenced by TFATF. However, this isn't first car or my first modified, i've had over 20 cars since I was 15. At 32 this is the most expensive car i've ever had. I tried to be smart about it instead of take out a loan and paid cash so I wouldn't feel bad about having fun modifying my car while a car payment haunts me. Anyway's here is the dirty details:
Details On Day One
87k Miles, original engine (it appears)
I'm the 5th owner
SPE Stage 1 trans rebuild
XS Power Mid Pipe
XS Power BOV's
Rev9 Titanium CBE
Cobb AP with TCM Tuning
DBA Wheels with New PS4 tires
Recently done brakes w/ DBA rotors and StopTech Sport Pads
Visctonti Pump Basket with AEM 340lph E85 Pump
Visctonti Flex Fuel Sensor
ID1000 Injectors purchased here second hand(Thank god I got them cleaned, would have blown my engine for sure. See the posts below)

Not blow the stock engine *nervous laughter*
Repaint the front bumper, hood, and roof. They all the have a lot of rock chips on them.

FBO with flex fuel, really partial bolt ons. I want to be able to go back to stock relatively easily for bi-annual smog.
Here was the first day I took my GT-R home.
