Last Q.. Is there a new high boost pulley and belt system which ensures no slipping? My 88mm pulley occasionally slipped on my last set up
Thank you, I really appreciate the kind words. There is a new crank pulley used for this setup.

I apologize if you already answered this but will your build include new headers or will you still be using your OE headers?

The "piston" is actually in good shape, no pitting and very little carbon buildup do to using water meth. Not sure what u mean by how low u can go.

Those coated headers look nice!

I'm going to be putting a set of Carrillo rods (along with CP pistons) in my GT-R soon also. Stock GT-R rods are known to bend past 650TQ, so I can't do anything else until I swap out the rods and pistons. I only got 3500 miles on them, but they got to go!
