Was a present to myself mate. A guy had ordered it from snap on then decided he didn't want it. Snap on man was out of pocket so I got it at cost price.

After using the unit for the engine swap I deffo have tool/facility envy haha

Cheers lads, all it's waiting for is sump, exhaust manifold gasket, injectors and oil filter fitting. Hopefully have the clutch/flywheel and gearbox on today.

I'd own one. Purely just for skids and the noise. Wouldn't buy one for more than £600 though lol

So you rebuilding that v6 now?

It was too good to walk away from.

Hopefully not mate from a quick look online they're known for chain guides failing so maybe a chain kit. Will need to get a look but won't be till my car is mapped. Nice ornament for the time being tho

It's an Irish import that 350z Rob, I take my hat off to you for the build also. It's taken a lot of patience and dedication from you.

Cheers mate. Been a long road to get to this stage but I'm happy with how it's coming together!

How do you know it's Irish @LiamEk9 ?
