rb25 two tone s13 build
Just as the title says a lil over a year ago i bought an 89 two tone coupe that had been owned by a couple of different friends. At first the plan was to throw a rb25, cage it and drive the hell out of it. Well that plan didnt last long because the more i kept thinking about things the more i wanted to do to the car. I was glad to know the car came with every bushing being replaced, solid subframe bushings and megan rucas, toe arms, tein tie rods and kazama tr ends.
This is the condition the car was in when i bought it
Talk about a clean engine bay
Shortly after getting her home I purchase some pbm coils, 5 lug conversion, 17x9 +17 mb comps and yamato garage traction and tension rods which have been replaced with pbm arms.
had this sticker made bc it makes me laugh lol
I deployed for 6 months right after i got the 5lug swap and thats when all the fun stuff started getting paid for.
hks timing chain and bov
intensepower 3" front mount
polished isis freddy intake mani and new gaskets
fuji ss braided ps line.
walbro 255 fuel pump
3" dp, test pipe and dual 4" isis exhaust
exedy twin plate
2 sparco pro 2000's
While I was gone a good friend of mine andy took care of the car for me and started doing the things i couldn't do myself. up first was to pull the ka and clean up the spray bomb paint job and start on the tubs. Andy has helped out alot.
after i get the bay all smoothed out this will be dropped in
Next was the originlab type 2 50mm overs were installed and my wheels test fitted which are 18x9.5 +11, 12+6
turned into this
Then I had the joy of ripping all the sound deadening out with about 60lbs of dry ice. only took about 20hrs. I hate that stuff.
removed 2 collars on the front coils and lowered her some more then loaded the car up to get it's cage.
got stuck in the car when i couldn't open the door lol so i had to improvise.
dropped it off at nocturnal motoworks in stl and this is what i picked up friday. I couldn't be happier with omar's work
when i get back from vacation I'll be removing all the glue left over from the soundening and prepping the interior, cage and engine bay for paint. I'm keeping it two tone and I plan on painting the cage the dark grey and the rest of the interior and engine bay silver green metallic. Hopefully I'll have some more pics up soon.

Its been hectic lately so progress has been next to none. the motor did however get put in to mock up the IC piping.
I also got varrstoens in the other day I went 18x9.5+12 and 10.5+0
I also got my clear corners, extend studs and the new pbm rucas.
Hopefully I have some more progress pics up very soon.

The IC piping is all tacked up and ready to get sent to nocturnal motorworks to tig weld them.
Now we're going to pull the motor and finish prepping the car for paint.

Finally the stars were alligned perfectly and my friend john was able to lay the first coat of primer after some cleaning and filling. The first coat of color should be in the very near future.
