The rings went in the EB so I sold it to silencer, then I bought AU as is. I drove that for a while, did some mods, raced it a few times then decided to sell it as I couldnt get insurance for it and didnt fancy not being able to drive it.

I started to build an RB30 LC torana and this EA came up for sale so I bought it. It was factory optioned with an AIT turbo kit and had a Tremec TR3550. I got it up to 200rwkw then took the manifolds off to put on my GT3540 but decided to fit the BA motor instead.

Its not the booster, its the master cylinder you should worry about. The reservour is plastic, and it can melt.

it may of lasted that long without stock exhaust or extractors, but the by adding the turbo, it moves the heat of the exhaust a lot closter to it.

Probably a month or so.

I have to wait for the new autronic to be released as it works with the stock cam sensors. I need to order a new turbo now too and get some water and oil lines made up, port the intake manifold, do the turbo side intercooler piping to suit the new turbo and she should be ready to go.
