Yea it was not easy. I used grade 10.9 bolts (m8), and about 1/2 thick steel piece across the nose of the crank.

Well I got the valve covers back on with new gaskets. Annoyingly enough, when I put the coil packs back on, I pressed on the connector housing. And it snapped. :( Don't press on the connector housing. Coils from 90-95 Infiniti Q45s fit, but they're super expensive. Ebay is a better option, all 6 for 125 bucks. But of course they're China cheap. Checked one forum, people have been using them without issue allegedly. Going to do some more looking before I bite the bullet, but may just go the cheap route and replace them all.

F me running, there are so many vacuum and water lines on the RB, it's just stupid.

Oh, and I was going to get some video up but my video editing software doesn't work on the new computer apparently. Looks like I'll have to get a different version next paycheck.

There are about 11 or 12 coolant lines on the CA. I reduced it as much as possible.

Vacuum, I only have the FPR, Intake butterflies, and the wastegate stock. I added a BOV.


Im gonna start with stock coils, but switch to VQ37 coils. You can shorten them to fit under the cover easily. And they are way higher powered. And they dont need the ignitor chip like the factory ones do.

Yes. Because Nissan.
When the only tool you have is a hammer every problem starts to look like a hippy.
