Well I've been holding my breath now for sometime for the GReddy Intake Plenum (Surge Tank to others) to come in and it finally landed on Friday. Thanks to Jeff at C-Red and John from Import Bitz for getting this in. This was originally going to be painted in the red wrinkle (crackle) paint like the rocker cover, but have since decided against it - it'll stay raw. Not to mention the difference in breathing and visual appeal it'll make in the engine bay. Also managed to pick up the last piece of the bodykit puzzle in the shape of a modified Nissan Aero (Nismo) front bar - the modification being in the main intake mouth. It's been enlarged for a front mount intercooler and once cleaned up and painted should look the goods (thanks Zac).

The front bar will now go off to Tomas for fitting, while the lightened pulley and plenum will be fitted to the engine. From here, I'm hoping for things to roll fairly smoothly to a climax, but of course that's only the plan - reality in these ventures can be completely different.
