I miss my Z, yours looks awesome (could use different wheels IMO) should build a rb30 for that to keep it a "300"zx

I quite jealous of your setup and GTR coilpack/cam covers :yesnod

Looking at this photo i see you must run map, but with this set up aren't you sucking air right threw the breather filter through the catch can and right into the turbo? If so and you were MAF this would be a source of unmetered air, correct?

Yea. I am running map sensor. It's on microtech ltx-16 and I don't have the catch can setup that way anymore. Check the "highest hp out of a stock rb25" thread. I guess that is true that the air is not metered that way. To tell you the truth, map is the way to go. I have no idea why most people go with the pfc if it still uses maf. I think maf is the s*** of the s***. I have never had so many problems with anything like that in my life. With map I can even run the car with no ic piping connected, basically filter on the tb. And the sci I got was almost the same price ad pfc and came with a completely new harness. Non of that old wiring.

Did you flip and trim the clutch fan to make it fit or is that not necessary in s14 with OEM radiator?

I "fliped it", actually bolted it on the back of the clutch, n trimmed the corners of the fins on the back to clear the crank damper.

Don't know bout that oil drain line on that Holset in last pic, angle and length to drain back is dd. Might be functional but its not ideal,,,,, just my 2cents, I would get hose heat sleeve or fire sleeve their sometimes called and run line between ex runners if u have to, to get nice straight and short drain back. That's what I would do.
