Hey all,

I've posted here and there but lurked mostly for a few years now. I previously had a MY06 3.0R-B which met an unfortunate end on Richmond road in February this year.

Luckily, I came across a gorgeous MY07 version and I decided this was the one to do everything I'd planned.

So...

I have just taken delivery of the Raptor intercooled SC kit and had the exhaust (including Raptor headers) installed.
Working on a Nexus 7 dash install
Brembo brake calipers just arrived (fresh off a 3.0R-B in Japan, with all adaptors and stainless lines)
Rear strut brace fitted with the front on the way.

After that it'll be sway bars and I'll be pretty happy.

Here's some pics. I haven't taken any really good pics of it yet. It's dark when I leave for work and dark when I get home at the moment!

Nice stuff man, looks like you really didn't waste time. Interested to see the dyno number with the Supercharger. Are you planning to run it on E85?

I am indeed. My only hesitation is out here I haven't seen many places for E85. I was hoping there was some sort of flex fuel option, but I haven't had any luck finding one.

I had the funds pretty much ready to go with the old 3.0R, but I arse ended someone when I sneezed in heavy traffic. Shittiest position to be in. Luckily no one was hurt!

This one drives so much better than the old one, so it was a blessing in disguise :)

Oooh yeah I do! :lol:

It is really smooth. Acts more like a turbo than I thought it would which is great. It just surges, but in a really easy to drive linear fashion. Next thing you know you're bouncing off the rev limiter but you swore it had more to go haha.

Veeerrryyyy addictive!
