    Newbie from Japan

    I'm Jason, an American living in Japan, I've been here for 4 years, and will be here for another 4 or 5 years before I come back to the US to finish school.

    I drive a 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R. I love this car, and I will be keeping it for a very long time, it's coming back to the US with me, because when I leave Japan it will be completely legal to bring back due to being 25 years old. I can even get it shipped for free . It's got a fairly mild tune right now, a little more boost, intake, full exhaust, and a tuned ECU, it's making probably 380-400hp right now. I'll be upgrading to around 550hp in the next year or so, which is still fairly mild for these cars.

    Here's a picture:



    I've never been real big into car audio, so this is really my first system. I know everything isn't the highest quality parts, but I didn't want to spend a ton of money as I need money for performance stuff too. So I know my equipment list won't please the true enthusiasts here, but after some short testing today, it really sounds good to me.

    I've got a JVC AVX77 head unit, Diamond Audio D6 components in the front (will be upgrading later), Infinity 8" subwoofers in a fairly cheap box (didn't want to build my own), two Precision Power S580.4 amps, Optima battery in the trunk (relocated from the engine bay), and a Rockford Fosgate 1 farad capacitor. I'm not into big car rattling bass, so the 8's are perfect for me.

    I didn't realize capacitors were not something that were really needed, I just went by what a friend recommended to me, but after reading on this site I see most people don't like them, but whatever, I got it already, and it's installed, so no big deal.

    I'm in the middle of installing all of it right now. I'm doing it myself, and I'm not a pro, but I think I'm doing OK. Everything is sturdy, it's ugly right now, but tomorrow I'm building a black vinyl cover so all you will see is the subs, amps (sunk in flush), and capacitor. Still debating doing some kind of lighting, but I'm not into a lot of that crazy stuff, I just want clean and simple.



    Still gonna clean up the wires a little more with some zip ties tomorrow, and then build the cover, should be done by tomorrow night.

    Not finished yet obviously, but got the wiring cleaned up, building the covers for amp rack and subs now.
