Yes it's phase2 FL :) Wiring was a little complicated beacuse CAN BUS. My friend and I spent few evenings to manage it. It's hard to describe all of minor things, but the main solution is to understand how the CAN BUS realy works :) After that it isn't hard. I can say also that loom in engine bay is custom made, based on P10 and VE loom - I need plugs and connectors :lol:

As I said last year, I wanted to get myself a little Black N16 as a Daily...I did exactly that :) I already have the SR20 bug lol. Your N16 really looks stunning and giving me inspiration @onyx lol.

I have the Phase 2 model and still got my old Phase 1 for parts...My new one is a base model, so hopefully has a lot less wiring issues.

Thanks Chris :) It's not that extremely difficult - go for it :mrgreen:
My N16 PH2 was also base model, but getting into it you won't run from CAN - if you want to have all working electrical devices.

According to new season, some minor changes will be done:

- additional/emergency pulling slim fan SPAL (done)
- brake booster 1-way valve (done)
- second set of rims with slick tires for track days (done)
- polyurethane shifter bushings (in production now)
- and rare VET (X-trail GT) cams (waiting for drop in) :D

Thanks :)

So I'm after tune up, low bottom is brilliant and I feel big advantage over stock cams :) Past 6500rpm boost is dropping. I think the stock actuator spring is too soft (0,5b) and backpressure is opening the WG. I'm looking after 0,8b actuator right now.

Time is flowing very fast. Almera is with me over 10 years, so I have to make a small celbrations - cake with candles was also :D

About mentioned candles, I supose to get rid of the stock projector lights - which they also mounted in Avensis T25. Their light is crappy as hell.
I make a project of adapter and cut it on laser CNC. New type of projector assembly seats sweet in this mounting and stock subframe without cutting :) Now I can say trully that I have good lights in front ;)

There was ocassion to start in small trackday. On rally cross slick ride was brilliant and you can easily brake the rules of physics :D
I was curious about the weight of this car. With small amount of fuel (almost empty), with full interior weight shows 1240kg - I think it's not bad at all.

Since winter I'm planning to put knuckle pins with uniball and the same technology steering rod end links. No need to fab existing mounting in knuckles, they fit as OE parts. Another step will be revision of tranny with minor changes - I'm putting closer FD, rest stay as it is.
