Hey guys,
After posting on here about 18 months ago looking for a Mivec I finally found one :D

I've just got back from an adventure to retrieve it from Mr. Mivec_ZR himself, in Christchurch.

9 days and 2800km's later it is now residing with me in Auckland :D

Will post a couple of photos from the trip soon :D

Very much loving the Mivec powa and 8200 RPM of goodness :twisted:
A bit different to the Nissan Silvia SR & RB power bands that I'm used to...

Here's some photos from the trip :D
2800 odd km's and several thousand since.
Spoiled for choice in the South Island for scenery 8)

I've taken the silly stickers off now & enjoying driving it.
Have done some EBC yellowstuff pads and stainless brake lines
Secured fire extinguisher and done wheel alignment.
New tyres & rims coming shortly and she'll be ready to race!

Hey guys,
Wee bit of a summer update

I've been preparing this car for track day racing.
Had it out to Hampton downs before Christmas - did approx 1:26 with 175kph on the pit straight.
A few more things to do but looking forward to the next one at start of Feb at Taupo.

New alignment, lightweight rims & Bridgestone RE002 rubber
Image

250000 K's and still going very strong
Image

Air con compressor clutch failed, new compressor and regassed for summer
Image

Car handles really well and brakes are great. Only done 8 laps max per session but they weren't even fading. It's got the late RS 2 pot calipers & bigger rotors as a factory option which helps :)
