This started my love affair with burning rubber and causing mayhem...
Fast Forward a few years of boring cars.. Read: 3 More Ex Lancers, '96 DC Integra, '96 Toyota Celica, etc..
I then got my hands on some pure performance...
2000 FD3S RX7 Type RB Ohlines Coilovers Pro Racer Rear Exhaust Section Momo Steering Wheel Mazda Speed Carbon Shift Knob and handbrake handle Defi Boost Gauge and Defi Link Controller Apexi Power FC and Commander Blitz Turbo Timer Carrozzeria CD MD HKS Intercooler Hard Pipe Kit HKS Suction pipes and induction Kit Ultra Ignition Cables
Had to get rid of it to pay bills etc.. sad sad day..
After that ive had a heap of Turbo RWD's (and some non turbos)
Well i thought it was about time I done one of these as I'm actually doing something of interest to my car finally
1996 S14 PFL
SR20DET 5 Speed
S15 BB turbo
3" exhaust from turbo back
Fully adjustable Tein/Tenabe (don't ask me, autolign said so :P)
Mismatching mags (D-Spec y0')
When i started out i didn't know bugger all about SR20's or engines in general for that matter, so for starters, BIG UPS to the flatmate Andrew for endlessly helping me out weekend after weekend :P
Started out as this when I bought it off a car yard (found on TM)
Then about a month later the exhaust became extremely loud and tractor like and it struggled to get into positive boost.... turns out the manifold -> turbo gasket blew... sweet as, we replaced it and made the turbo all shiney and stuff
Then went on the FMIC (Cheers to Shaun (Swellacott) for selling me it :P)
Then i got bored of the URAS kit, so decided on something different (never seen one before) so bought and fitted a WORKS9 kit.
Then i decided to (for shits n giggles really) rebuild the gear box.
Now that the RB is in there, it has to come out :roll: but now we have to wait for the gearbox etc to come so i can put it in before bolting the engine mounts down. Then get the car all wired up, then get the drive shaft engineered and I'll be aaaaall gravy :D
i SOOOO can't wait :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
[b]************ ACT III ************[/b]
so once again, we have been pretty slack as of late. and when we did muster up enough energy and motivation to do something, we got slapped in the face by issue after issue. mostly to do with this god-damn m'fu*king front facing POS :evil: . seriously if anyone reading this is doing what we are, put the f'king thing on when the engine is OUT of the car, you'll be able to sort all the issues SO much easier.
last weekend we tried to get the plenum on and sorted, but couldn't because of the following reasons
[b]1.[/b] the plenum wouldn't fit because it was hitting the clutch master cylinder. so after some umming and arring and a few trips to nisbits to talk with the lads there (and to deliver the beer i owed them :oops:) i found out that i needed to swap it for either a Honda S2000 clutch master cylinder (if you ring BNT ask for the one with a remote mounted reservoir, its like $40) or one from a manual R34.
[b]2.[/b] the tail end/brass nipples that i had were too long and fouled on so much crap. so we REWA'd up something to make it all work, then tried to put it in only to find it is now hitting on the stupid oil cooler thing. i have borrowed a pic from "driftin_sx". sorry :P
that large chunk of smelly excrement is the biggest and most worthless POS i have ever come across. i mean REALLY!! did Nissan know how much of an assh0le they were being when they put that there?
any who. last night we FINALLY sorted out most of the issues, and the issues that our solutions created (endless tale of cr@p i won't get into) and now its starting to look like and engine YAY!!!
when andrew started googling stuff, i knew we had issues
well ladies and gents, its now officially a skyvia.
and heres andrew marvelling in his awesomeness ( i let him think that anyways :P)
