That's good info! Euro/Nismo cams should be a nice little bump.

Been awhile since an update. Had gotten the block and heads back from the shop, apparently 2 weeks after they had finished. (I don't know what it is with shops in MN, not the first time I hadn't been called after work was done)

Got, mostly, everything put back together. Few things here and there. My order from summit for headers was delayed another couple weeks, so I put in the order with another company. Wish I could order directly from pacesetter, looks like they are in stock.

This is what I've been working on in the meantime.

Hopefully by the end of the month I'll have my truck back.

I just want to throw this in.

Schneider 256H cams: 256 @ .420"

That was for $230 after sending them my VG30 cam cores. I was thinking I had the mild USDM cams but later learned that my JDM engine probably had the Euro versions. I don't know how 256 @ .420" compares to 262 @ .393" (less duration with more lift -vs- more duration with less lift) but it was certainly better than the US VG33 244 duration @ .366" lift.

Haven't been on for a bit. To give an update, this us where the truck stands.

Got the engine in with a new clutch. Getting the diff back up was a real pain. Note to others: if you relocate the filter to the front it won't clear a steering damper. I plan on relocating it a little lower to see if that works. In the meantime I'll just take it off.

The headers still have not come in. Last I heard it was pushed back to the end of this month. Wouldn't be surprised if it gets pushed back even farther. Since I need to leave the state to get to my next job, I just put the manifolds back on with the hacked up downpipes.

Now I just have to fill it up and start it. From what I read, to prime the oil, I leave out the spark plugs/fuel pump relay and crank it intermittently until the light goes off. Put it back together and I should be good to start it. Am I correct?

I was short on coolant, I've got some getting picked up for me. Until then I'll work on putting in the dome light I got from Hardbody92 and the front speaker i took out of my car before I sold it. So close I can almost hear it!

Hell yeah man!



What clutch and headers did you go with?



My 6 puck can be rather interesting at times and occasionally I scare the girlfriend with it. She isn't nearly the fan of wheel spin that I am!



I was thinking of doing a steering damper on my truck. How close is the filter interference?
