Drove the heck out of it. Gave me that stupid smiling grin reflecting back at me when I was done walking away from the car. Mwhahaha. I love me some good old school B13 OEM-plus goodness.

Still cleaning/battling the sludge motor. So I did an oil changing (at 1,000miles) using Penzoil Platinum (will do 3-4 oil changes on this oil and then I'll do the ULTRA platinum- yes I'm still Mobil 1 fan but the detergent suppose to be stronger in the ultra), Mobil 1 Filter, installed @Serban powder coated valve cover, new oem grommets/bolts around VC, new revised chain tensioner/gasket and removed top chain guide, put new revised cam drippers @GregV (gspec) removed oil strainer/pick up tube and cleaned it (ALOT of square sludge chunks came out *gulp*).
Then I reinstalled by installing lower oil pan that has bung for oil temp sensor. Ran the sensor wiring for the Innovate oil temp/pressure gauge. Install Front Crank seal. Even though the crank seal & chain tensior gasket helped with some of the leak, It appears not to have solve the fully leak issue. Might be coming from secondary as MOST all the hoses have been replaced along with seals/gaskets/etc. Switch out a lot of the old original cracked vacuum hoses with Vibrant silicone hoses.
Installed @AutotechMotoring fuel line hardware. Be warn the fuel rail requires (4) of the bigger bolts and only (3) come in the kit. Looks offset and Weird but all in all, the whole kit worked out and installed without any issues.

Next up is to Pressure washing the under carriage to locate this mystery oil leak and mostly to pin point my next leaking area- Power steering rack. Also install new oem fuel line (yes, 8mm and not 5/16") and 300zx fuel filter. Then at some point, replace my driver side axle boot with oem (yes I'm oem whore lol.) and I'll be ordering some other Oem goodies today- nx side pillar grommets, new exhaust manifold studs/nuts, Fuel Pressure Gauge w/fitting, Brake Booster firewall hose clamp.

Pulled the old turbo motor out.
Got a nasty nasty shop. All I have left is putting the ve in..
Finding an ecu, installing all this new suspension stuff, new wheel bearings and control arm bushings, then I will be down to 10-15 things lol

Along time coming for this. First test drive since I started piecing her together 4 years ago. Time to get the mvi and alignment then registered and insured then work on the tune.
