Firstly, I've used NGK coils rather than the troublesome VAG OEM coils. Secondly, I've chosen this setup over the existing R32 or updated R34 GTR or Chevy LS setup for the following reasons;
Cheaper and easier to purchase new coils over the Nissan & Chevy options.
Removes the troublesome ignition amplifier.
More than capable of handling the power output I'll get to.
Fitting was easy, I purchased a harness from a Canadian gentleman, and only had 6 wires to splice for the ignition signals. Pretty much plug and play. Car seems to idle and drive a lot smoother now, also feels like it pulls better but that's probably a placebo, however it's no surprise considering a rather brittle sounding harness, and 22 year old components have been replaced!
Eventually I'll either make a plug cover or adapt a cheap one to mount the coils to, however the coils are pretty tight as is and won't come off.

I decided to take my other car too, loaded up with all this gear, plus some fuel for a mate, & his jack...
This proved a costly tactic, but the fuel cans didn't fit in the Skyline and I'd sooner be prepared!
The car was pretty much trouble free all day reliability wise, pushed a bit of brake fluid past the cap at some point, the rear pads wore rather weirdly in a very angular fashion and she didn't take long to get the engine oil rather hot so I wasn't getting lots of running!
Mostly let down by crap tyres and OEM suspension on the day though, as you can see in this picture it leans a lot!
Also picked up a stone chip on the windscreen on the journey to Blyton which you can see in the videos, and then copped for some chod of rubber at about 85mph out on the track!
A good day out, but to make her properly track worthy is going to require a lot of money and massively compromise it on the road, plus I don't really want to go down that route seeing as I'm trying to keep the car in it's original spirit but with sympathetic upgrades.
Here's the only 2 videos I got, had some GoPro/User interfacing issues!

Whilst under there I was looking at the downpipe, didn't appear to be standard. Asked on GTROC and found out it's an old school TRUST downpipe, sweet!
Anyway... Brakes are bled, clutch is bled. Wheels are on, and I've given her a much needed clean. Enjoy!

Left them 24 hours, then fitted the Brembo decals to the fronts.
This morning I had a chance to fit it all up. New Brembo bleed nipples for the front calipers were fitted, and then I built up the front brakes (the discs aren't fitted "wrong", it doesnt matter which way those grooves go as the internal structure of the rotor isn't curved.)
Fronts all built up, Discs, Pads, Brake Lines.
I was planning to fully refurbish the rears (all new seals). However, the grease & piston looked so fresh when I removed the dust seals I decided just to leave them alone and fit the new dust seals instead. I can push the pistons in by hand so it's not like they're stiff! So they're back on and built up with new braided lines too.
Didn't get the clutch line replaced, I'll either do that tomorrow before my nightshifts start, or Friday. Fluid & bleeding is planned for Saturday, also waiting on my R33 GTR wheels to arrive before a roadtest.
