A couple weeks back, I removed the right side axle on the 1990 NISMO Nissan Skyline GT-R #500, and did some cleanup. Prior to the SoCal Nissan GT-R Invasion 2, I had to get the car back together and threw some new spark plugs in it. As long as I was there, I figured it was a good time to trace down some oil leaks, and install the divided twin turbo pipe.

I should have ordered a coil harness before I took the car apart. As usual, the coil harness cooks in the engine valley,and it was a bit crispy. Ebay app on the phone ordered a harness, but it wouldn't make it in time.
|Coil packs removed. The car had some Champion Iridium plugs in it|
|New BCPR7EIX on the left, Champion plug on the right|
|I like using T-handles on spark plugs. Keep you from putting too much torque on the plugs.|
|Water had collected around one plug at some point.|
|Car ran fine, but doesn't look that good|
|Cam cover removed|
|The "1/2 moon" at the back of the head. These get crispy, its a good idea to replace them. 11051-58S00|
