my jdm s14a silvia project! hello from ireland!
hi guys, just thought id start a lttle project thread to show you my car and its progress!
finally found the car i wanted! after much looking and viewing of cars i found the exact one and it is better than i could ever have imagined the second i saw it in person i new this was the car i was gonna be buying! (looked at a few, some ok but needed work, some awful pieces of shit where the owner was also full of shit thank fuck i didnt buy that one the day before i bought this haha!)
big thanks to alan opel for being dragged around the country to come look at smelly nissans with me
so the spec list so far is
hks front mount
cusco coilovers with adjustable top mounts
cusco strut brace
cusco 2 way
tein front tension rods
rsr cat back exhaust system
scroth harness (some german company)
18" kansai snipers (haha)
s15 bb turbo
air filter, unsure of name
carbon bonnet (needs a refurb)
unknown front bumper make
20 mm spacers ( wont on it for long)

so christmas got my car a few extras! hooked up my TALKING blitz turbo timer, i have no clue of what its saying as its in japanese.
check the video of it here, skip to 50 seconds to here the voice better!
YouTube - Blitz VGTT Turbo Timer
also got an apexi AVCR for christmas, might hook it up 2moro!
also its booked in for an NCT on the 7th of janurary!
and as always, my wheels sit and wait to be fitted,
edit: forgot, i also bought a walbro ( not sure if there is one in the car) and a blitz boost gauge off k1984w

so i wired up the apexi avcr all by myself(with a very tiny bit of help from alan opel and hachi) im very proud of myself haha(because im shit at doing this kinda stuff). so far the car hasnt blown up, so thats a plus(touch wood), but i havent a clue of how to set the thing up, so thats gonna take some researching.
anyway, a few crappy ipod touch photos
mounted the solenoid near the airfilter, seemed like a good place as it wasnt far from the turbo but also in a cool place so it wouldnt melt
mounted the pressure sensor on the other side (in green circle)
ran the wires through this grommet as i really didnt want to go drilling a hole in the car. with the help of a coat hanger to help feed it through, because when removing the glove box, you cant actually get to the other side of it as there is loads of random boxes in the way (a/c , fan etc)
the plus side to doing this is that it brought all the wires right next to the ecu
so i had alan opel come over to take a look at the piping to see if i had done everything right (which i did haha) and he spotted a random pipe going into the interior, he has a look under the dash and look what he finds!
greddy boost gauge!!!! it was well hidin up there! ( i had just bought a blitz boost gauge off k1984w)
