    Very useful information. Thanks. Were they pricey?

    Thanks Woody. Me too. Should be ready by Spring 2019 I would hope. I can spend this winter putting the interior in etc ready for driving next year. Excited to be getting closer now.

    Are you taking it back to the dyno for setup tweaks now it’s got an air box and full exhaust etc on?

    Yes I expect I will do, not until its completely finished though. Be next year.

    From memory I think I spent £200 all in.

    Beautiful build, really well done. Love the colour.

    What rear anti roll bar are you using? I wasn't aware there was an option to fit an anti roll bar to the T3 drop mounts? Also which finned cover are you using?

    Thanks Ian, appreciate your comments,

    Its an ST Suspension rear Anti Roll Bar, the T3 drop mounts are designed to work with it and fitment wasn't too much of a problem.

    The finned cover is an OEM Nissan as far as I am aware? (it came with the R200 diff)

    Thanks for the info, had a closer look at your photo so I can see how it is attached. Where did you order it from as I don't believe T3 will ship them to the UK?

    Definitely an option to make my subframe connector mods easier to do but I'm not sure I want to run thicker anti roll bars.

    I ordered the roll bar from Summit Racing in the states. I've ordered from them before and never had an issue and would highly recommend them.

    I’ll second the recommendation for Summit. Massive company and get your parts here very quickly.

    Bit more of an update, the Z Story manifold clashed slightly with the bulkhead/floor interface. It was an issue I was aware of, but opted not to squash the pipes or bash the floor. The collector and y pipe were modified to clear where required and looks pretty
    good I think. IMG-20181015-WA0000.jpg IMG-20181015-WA0001.jpg IMG-20181015-WA0002.jpg IMG-20181015-WA0003.jpg

    Will now be focussing on the interior, radio, heater etc once I have reassembled the engine bay after the manifold work.

    Looks great. I wish I'd had that option when I decided to bash my floor.

    I can imagine. I just had the local stainless exhaust place do the work, they seem to have done a good job, although I haven't started it up yet since its been fitted.

    Looks good. Sean why isn't it designed to miss the floor?

    I think the latest batches have been changed and clear properly......

    In 40yrs time, the series 1 system that fouls the body will be the one to have.

    Just for reference my Zstory exhaust and manifold cleared fine, only thing I had to modify was my transmission mount because of fitting the S14A box and I over engineered it causing a very tiny interference.

    Now have lights, and new gauges which work ok. Only coolant temp sender needs fitting as the Autometer adapter is the wrong size.
