Placed my @Archer Fabrications order this morning for short route intercooler piping. Already a good experiance as I checked out and didn't notice a shipping cost overcharge. Kyle, on the other hand, was on top of that shit and within 15 minutes of the order had reached out to me and issued a 300 and some change refund. It appears I clicked worldwide on shipping. Awesome dude.

Not much to update at this time.
Building a second cylinder head and going to swap out my current one once I'm done. Early on I made a few cheap mistakes that I'm going to correct. I also snapped a fuel rail bolt and I really want to get it out and have failed. So. New head. Performance partout is supplying the new head and extremepsi gave me all the supporting parts. Gunna give the head a quick port and polish but anyone who has ever done porting knows "quick" means like 12 hours of work.
Lastly, gunna finish running the power wires that I have been avoiding doing for some reason, installed.the ets intercooler, @Archer Fabrications is making me some intercooler piping that will go on, and lastly throw the ecu back in and give the key a turn.
Earlier this year I had redone must of the wiring in the car so let's hope the main 60amp fuse from B+ can stop blowing at key on.

Head is dropped off at the machine shop. This place is nuts. Trophies everywhere. Crazy CNC everything. Apparently they build and race new GTRs. And it's weirdly secluded. I attached a photo of the place. Not even a sign. With that, they have a rediculous hourly rate. 135 an hour. Woof. Place is called Larry's auto machine in CT.
Anyway, head is getting cleaned and they are removing a broken bolt. Broken bolt is hourly and they say it should only take a half hour but if I get a 300 dollar bill for 1 bolt I'm going to be pissed.
Yeah yeah yeah. Pay to play. Still expensive.

Few things have happened. Today I recieved the coolant resevuare (misspelled I know) that I ordered from Vamos Fab. Very high quality peice designed to fit perfectly with the intercooler piping that archer fab has shipped to me today.
I also shipped my cylinder head off to MAPerformance to be rebuilt. The head has a quality pocket port done to it and they are going to be doing all the typical head machine work aswell as new bronze ferrea valve guides, ferrea 6000 stainless valves, and a valve job. All freshly machined and assembled. Ready for me to slap my cams in and send it.

Alright. I'll admit it. I'm a little nervous. My head is in a different state and I'm nervous. At a shop I have never had anything worked on for alot of money and I'm nervous. Hope this goes well. First time I have had my shit worked on like this. I have always done everything myself or local.
