Excellent work Phil. You have made so many modifications and changes to your car, it would be a shame if members could not access the information because of the difficulty of finding it within the 210 pages of your thread. I have experienced this myself in the past. This thread will allow all members to easily access the information now. Well done.

Thanks Coupes. I should have done something like this a while ago. Would have saved lots of time and effort looking up stuff. I blame you and baker for finally getting me motivated to pull this list together hahhaaha

I have wasted so much time and money on this build it is ridiculous, so if this thread helps new owners avoid the mistakes I have made along the way, then pulling this guide together has been worth it lol

Truth be known, lots of inspiration has come from your build, which is one of best N54s in the country #much respect
