So as I hinted in a previous post, in addition to the Nismo Omori Factory Chassis Refresh, the guys went ahead and, with my permission, fixed a few things they spotted while most of the undercarriage was off the car.
First, they replaced this - the ATTESA ETS nitrogen accumulator (Click here for a nice DIY on how to do it yourself on an R32 GT-R. Thanks to Sean Morris for the information. And here is a good explanation of how ATTESA itself works -thanks to DSportMag). Maybe this will fix the slowish response of the ATTESA that I had always wondered about (granted the digital DTMII G-sensor massively improved things but I always felt there was still a slight delay).

|From an earlier update post. Do you see the accumulator? Me neither.|
|Here is the new piece.|
|Yeah that dirt bothers me...everything else is SO clean...|
|Curious about other Series 3 (kohki) differences? Read this.|
|You can see the intercooler fins on the left of the mesh.|
So what else? Well as everyone knows Nismo has re-released their GT shift knobs in both titanium and urethane, so of course I had to get one too. No photos yet as that will be when I pick up the car...
Tomorrow will be a good day!!
