Little background on this, I traded my white SR hatch for a R32 GTR shell earlier this year. It was the car that I always wanted and thought about building. The downside to it was that everything is a $500 bill for that car. I couldn't afford to build it among other things. So after it sitting in my garage for a couple months and me getting the itch to build something, I hit up a friend of mine who had this car. Trade done, the list of mods a mile long and a "built" motor that I was told had no compression in CYL 1. Jayson from CSW had fixed a lot of things but this car has a long way to go. It was suspected that the car had bent valves which is what my hunch was. Pulled the head tonight and my hunch was confirmed. I have a spare head that for the time being I will throw on it to get it running and then go from there. The supposed head upgrades are yet to be confirmed, I know the valves are OEM Nissan so I am unsure on the springs and cams.
