    R33 GTST rebuild

    Just thought I'd share the progress so far. Engine is out and things are stripped back as far as they need to go. Everything from this point onwards is moving forward. Today the car was picked up for engine bay to be colour coded. Once I've got it back I'll order the new forged engine and can begin reassembly.

    I'll add some more photos over the coming weeks when work starts to progress.

    ������ gunna have to be fairly deep. ������ JDM garage is where I'll get the engine from, they have all their re-con engines built by DY Services so it's trustworthy and easy to get hold of. My engine is shot unfortunately all the ancillaries around it are good just the actual block is dead. But on the plus side, the car is currently at the spray shop having a complete overhaul, colour change and engine bay done to match. Will probably have the car back by end of July, middle of August depending on what they discover. So in the mean time I'm just saving and then ordering parts until I finally bite the bullet and buy the new forged engine. The end goal is a prestine r33 running a reliable 500hp. ����
