...I finished up the install yesterday and it works as advertised, There is plenty of clearance to close the hood with the 3/8" spacer on my 88 SE...installation was a breeze as the gaskets were cut and drilled perfectly... Intake [upper] temps went from 150/160F down to 100F[car was fully warmed by driving a half hour]..lower intake temps were 200F......i tested with a IR gun and a Fluke meter..its accurate....go buy a spacer kit!!

Very nice!
thanks..i havent been able to see if it helped power wise yet because i'm tracking down some unrelated boost issues....i retested the temp's and it keeps that upper intake cool to the touch...the only change i needed to fit the spacer was to switch back to the 200sxSE  idle controller unit from the 300zx turbo version...the 300zx version sits much higher and wouldnt clear the hood.....in the past the car wouldnt idle good with the SE n/a part but i retried and its now working fine...SMOOTH IDLE/IDLE UP FUNCTIONS/COLD START....I'LL probably rehook up the EGR with the provided adapter kit when the car has to take its annual emission test next year.

i had heard NY dropped the dyno test for emissions testing on all cars before 95,,,took it in with the EGR and CAT removed and its true..its just a safety test[lites/horn/brakes/steering]...its easy sailing from now on[though this car always passed]...anyway,mechanic looked it over and asked about the meth injection and rear turbo set ups and said its good to go!!

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch

i was having problems with the fuel pump wiring grounding out ...Nissan really designed a shitty wire pass through on the fuel tank pump lid ..if the positivewire  grounds, the fuse blows and if the negative grounds it wont shut off....i bypassed the ECU control of the pump and used a relay to feed it 14 volts constant when running...with the battery in the hatch area it was a easy conversion...it pulls noticably better!!

Your 1st intake pic is perfect!  Now I know what/where things really are.  Thanks!  Crowded in there.  I'm gonna break something I know it.

i picked up a used set of air bags and installed one in the rear passanger coil...not a easy installation as these bags are very still material and didnt want to slide in to postion..my hands are killing me!!...15psi  preload in that spring now..it should help with traction.

...some tips for easier installation....i used  vacuum hand pump to fully collapse the bag...i also had to use my heat gun to get some bag flexibility...lube those coils...pry tools...strong hands....i'm not looking forward to do the drivers side.

....anal lube on a rear mount ?? why didnt i think of that!!...thanks! LOL
...I relocated the oil pump to a better position today...its closer to the turbo and positioned just below the gravity feed.

...i wanted to rig better location for the tranny cooler that i'm using for the  water cooled center section on the T3..i had the heat exchanger just laying in the hatch area and it wasnt doing its job as the water was scalding hot[duh!! no air flow].. .anyway, this is what i came up with...i kept the reservoir with pump in the rear hatch.

Being all the way back there I wouldn't even bother with water cooling, I don't even water cool my T25...

...i had these parts laying around and decided it can only help with longevity..it works great...that cooler scrubs off the heat so well the water in the resevoir is only luke warm even after driving the car for an hour with 12psi blasts!!

As far as I'm concerned you killed two birds with one stone (or got two birds stoned at once?) and built a turbo/fuel cooler. Pretty good use of spare parts.

...i have a 2.5 gallon coolant reservoir located in the driver rear hatch corner, where i mounted a small bilge pump[$12.00] within the reservoir and rubber lines that connect to the turbo center section in/out which connects to the heat exchanger...i was able to remove a floor plug in the hatch area to feed the lines through to make a clean installation....i wired the bilge pump to the factory fuel pump wiring which wasnt being used because i had bypassed it for a relay and full time voltage.[btw,fuel pump works so much better].
