With all the down time i'm still having, I got the exhaust all fabricated up! A simple hanger is all i'm needing to 100% complete it. I do have a short cold start video, i'll post it soon.

That's just moister evaporating from within the exhaust, since i'm running E-85. Water is a by product of the fuel, creating some water leftover.

So, little update. Got word that my z33 trans (Cd003) I was running is now basically scrap. The part I need for 5th gear (not sure what exactly it is) is not available through Nissan.

In the hunt for trans. The inner me is saying just to get a t56....

Then you will just find yourself rebuilding that unless you get a magnum. Not to mention the shifter feel Get a proper (06)cd009 for $500

Yep, my plan is to do that. I didn't know about the cd009 until later in my build. I tend to learn the hard way everytime...

Are you running stock 4.08 rear end? I am switching up to 350z/g35 pumpkin to get 3.3 or 3.5 gearing this winter for more friendly hwy rpm. Also then I can run the much better 350z/g35 axles

Small amount of wiring has been done since the headlights. I got my windows functioning. That's basically it. Next, will be my brake lights. Not much else.

Looks good, but why did you not triangulate the X with the horizontal bars??

The horizontal bar is my harness bar. Which is lower and not in the middle of the "X" because of my seat height (that bar is level with my shoulders). More pictures will be posted.

It's definitely a pain the ass to be a bigger guy and trying to fit into a S13...

IF i was ever to be in a accident, my harness will pull up on the seat. Rather than crushing my shoulders...

It has been some time since an update. I've getting a bit done to the car.

Cage is complete, dash cut and fitted etc. As of right now, i'm close to be finishing up painting the interior. I have my first track day coming up the 29th of this month. Then a hopefully getting into a Gingerman track day in May. Looking forward to both of those events!!!

It's been great, imo. Even though my brother tuned it. The install and getting the car set up was rather easy. The car performs as it should every time.

Car sounds nasty! Love seeing the car in action...kuddos to you and your hard work bud.

So I must ask, now that the car is up and running whats your feedback on the MS3 Pro? Been reading a bunch of information about the amazing system features but wanted to get your personal experience with the unit.

Meh, yes and no. I got 55mm front overfenders. With my 25mm spacer that I have to use to clear the Brembo's. I haven't really have had bad rubbing. I have noticed a small amount before but nothing major.

I do have about 6* of camber now too.

Thanks!!!! I'm very happy with the ECU. I have zero issues with the ECU and the engine harness. If you don't enjoy wiring, i'd say this is a very smart purchase for anyone that has a LS.
