It's been a long time since we've updated this thread,
Recently had a customer bring in his newly acquired Aurora Flare Blue Black Edition for an inspection, and quick service shortly after he purchased it from East Coast.
Unfortunately, Even though the buyer had a PPI completed, there were a host of issues that weren't noted in the inspection...
Looks like someone's been running very rich..
First task was to inspect car. East Coast winters can be rough, and we spotted some serious rust on the flanges and main tubing of this exhaust:
Next most obvious thing was the heavily worn, cracked OEM rotors:
Ordered Alcon C-hooks immediately!!
Looks like the previous owner hit something quite hard to bend both lower grill brackets, as well as damage the front lip.
First thing we had to do was replace the worn-out set of tires on the car (uneven, cupped treads) with new Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
Just so everyone knows, Front: 285/35/20 & Rear: 305/30/20 fit perfectly on stock GT-R wheels.
Second thing was to address the fueling issue the new owner was having; the power abruptly cutting at WOT.
Found a few issues that needed to be addressed immediately:
Ever wonder how a fuse gets itself to this point?
We found what looks like an "attempt" to hard-wire the fuel pumps, with one of the wires worn bare and rubbing against the chassis (probably what was causing the fuse to nuke itself).
We're slowly working through all the issues on this car to get it back into fighting shape for our customer, its new owner. We'll have some forthcoming updates on the progress.
On a lighter note! We added this new little lounge area for anyone that visits
