My poor, poor credit card.

how to lighten one's wallet in four easy steps (by decypher the code)

I don't even want to add up the invoices, it's almost too depressing.

step 1: Bosch Motorsport fuel pump (aka ’044′)
step 2: Tial 44mm external wastegate and 0.8 bar spring
step 3: 4x Denso 850cc injectors (still on order, not in this photo)
step 4: Garrett GT3071R twinscroll ball-bearing turbo

If I don’t be making 400PS in terror squid after all this crap gets fitted ‘n tuned, tantrums shall be thrown. Excessively.

The Datsun one is obviously not entirely stock having had the badge recess filled and then the whole panel re-painted.  However, that’s not important, what is important is that the spare panel needed some tidying up, so before I shot off to work I started on that…
