I get that. Seems like it'd be easier to just get your r32 seats reupholstered or get new seat covers though. I got the Nismo ones for mine - hopefully I get a chance to work on them this weekend.
Nismo ones?!? I did not know those existed. Share a picture!!

Mine aren't installed yet so no pics but here's a link:

They're pricey but it's a full set for front and rear seats. I don't care for seats that don't look like they match lol.

There's also this one as a cheaper alternative:

Ughhhh, why do you do this to me? Now I have to buy them!
Lol

Speaking of turbos from your thread/build, I'm getting the Garett 2860R I believe. You guys know much about those?

Are you getting the -7 or the -5? The GT2860R-7 is the same spec as the R34 N1. Basically the same as the original R32/33 N1 turbos but with a ball-bearing CHRA instead of journal-bearing. Good for about 600ish hp. The -5 is good for 700ish but slower spool.

I was thinking of the -7 setup or GT2859R like in the HKS GT-SS for my car if I go stock location but right now I'm leaning towards the Full Race EFR high-mounts like I mentioned in other threads.

Are you doing anything special for the oiling issue btw? Has Do Luck recommended anything in particular for your car like a Tomei pump or whatever?

Your fault for getting a Nismo like me lol. I have to warn you though, fitting the Nismo covers on the front seats are a bitch and a half. I did my passenger seat yesterday and my fingers are still super sore and I have a cut on one now from doing it lol. And I'm still not done 'cause the belt holes are a real PITA. I'm gonna see if an upholsterer can help me with that part at least. The covers as they are look good at least - hard to tell they're covers.

From the invoice, all it says is "Garett 2860R turbo Kit GCG"

It was suggested by Ito San. The car will be making around 550hp. As for pumps. I'm getting a Nismo fuel pump, a SARD fuel regulator, and a HKS fuel delivery pipe.

Actually I was asking about what you're doing for oil pumps since oiling is a known weak point with the RB so I was wondering if they had recommended you an upgraded pump, replacement crankshaft, changes to the sump, or any of that other stuff.

Gotcha! As for oil, I only see a HPI oil cooler, but I'll have to ask and see what's up. I know those engines have weak points as you've mentioned.

I'm going to look into getting an accusump.

Just wanted to give an update. The struggle still continues. I'm not really sure anymore when my car will actually be completed. Last month I've actually reached the point to stop asking and caring... I guess it'll be a surprise to me the day I receive an invoice for the labor. I have never ever thought that it would take this long.

Anyone interested in a gunmetal1990 Nissan Skyline GTR? hahahahaha...

R32 builds do seem to get out of hand lol. Mine looks like it'll be March or April at the soonest but it'll be fully fresh once it gets done. It seems so far away lol.

The day my car gets here, I'm cracking open a bottle of Yamazaki sherry cask, because it'll be a special day. Hahahaha

Got an update today right before I head off to Japan tomorrow too.

Ito San said, "The R35 air flow has big flow back so need Apexi pressure sensor, install, and then adjust.
other parts all finished. Will need a little more time to finish."

Had the chase to stop by Power House Amuse today. Really great to meet them and having them work on the next phase of my build.
