Only reason I drift the s14 over the s13 is because all my purchases for the s14 have been for the most part for drifting. Plus I didn't get the s13 till I had way to much already invested into the s14. If it crashes it crashes, I guess that's what over fenders are for. haha

Little more progress on the car yesterday. Trying to get the s14 done so most of the work has stopped on the coupe for now.

Installed my roof spoiler and tore the subframe out to place my new bushings and arms in.









Bout ready to start burning out bushings, and painting the subframe, hopefully its got the new bushings on and will be back on the car by the end of this coming weekend.

Well more progress on the car. Finished figuring out the mounting locations for stuff in the engine bay, and was able to take the motor back out.

Got the engine bay painted



Also got the rest of the subframe out, sent my steering rack in as a core so a nice brand new one will be here on Tuesday.



Also started to finish up the wiring that I had been putting off for some time. Hoping that I'll finally have reverse light that work when I'm done.



Nice and clean lower harness.



And almost done finishing up the interior wiring.

Reinforced lower control arms ready to be put back on





Brand New steering rack to replace my blown one



Luckily I kept my old lines because when I got this one they where all smashed in. :\

And just some other pics from this weekend. Didn't get much progress on the car because I went to Boost for Boobies on Saturday and didn't start working on it till Sun afternoon.

Tein Inner and Outer Tire Rods installed



Bushings in on the subframe finally



The car looks a lot further along when a motor is actually sitting in the bay.

Spent most of my weekend working on wiring for my s14, also helped Chris drop in his SR and pull the ka out of the hatch. Didn't take many pictures.







Test fitted my seat, wish it was able to go a bit lower.



And my favorite part about this weekend was testing my wiring and finding that everything worked, had a little trouble with the turn signals but now there good. Wiring is about 95% done now.


Dash goes back in and hopefully I'll have the rest of the interior done tonight.

Took till about midnight to get all the arms on and the subframe put back on the car finally. Gonna try out some of these write ups on at home alignments so I can at least take the car out this weekend before I can get a professional alignment done next week.

Long weekend in the shop trying to still get this car done.

Finally got my brake lines, clutch, and oil cooler lines in. Filled her up with fluid, finished running a power wire to my starter and from the battery to the fuse box. Turned the key over and it fired right up. I was actually surprised that it did, after I did all that messing with wiring and other stuff, I was kind of doubting if it would even run. But luckily it did, idles just fine.

Also gave all the brake calipers an overhaul by cleaning and re lubing the pins. Painted them silver and put them back on.

Put the Stance GR+ Pros on also. Now that I had all my suspension on in the front I found a few problems. These MB Battles are to fricken wide to use with my cut knuckles ( maybe ). At full lock they rub on the tension rod and at full lock the other way they rub on the brake line mount. Hopefully this is because of my current ride height and alignment. If I can't figure out a fix I'll just have to use my old rims till I can get some thinner rims then the 9.5" Battles.

Rubbing is an issue everyone has to deal with once you start with angle mods. With as much work as you've done I'm suprised you over liked that small tid bit. Not bashing you though so take no offence. Most people w/ knuckles either run a super skinny WACK looking wheel up front, order custom wheels, or run spacers. I see you have some spacers so I'd go that route w/ a generous about of camber since you already painted your front fenders. Love how the car is turning out. Great work!

Thanks, and no offense taken. I've never built anything really before this car, shit this is the first vehicle I have even put coils in, let alone the first to go this in depth on a build. So I'm not surprised I've overlooked a few things. I'm going to build some bump stops for the LCA's so that the only thing that hits is the tie rod end. I will accept a loss in the total angle I can turn, but in the long run, it will only be my second year drifting and also these knuckles with a bump stop should be more angle then stock was. Plus if I run a different set of wheels or get overfenders and extended LCA's I think I can be pretty clear of hitting things.

Got some safety for the car.



Also my attempt at getting the reverse lights wired so that they come on when the car is in reverse turned out.



Three things left to do before No Star Bash
-Bump Stops
-Battery Mount
-Alignment

We'll wrapped up the few things I had left on the car Thursday night. Loaded up the trailer and was ready to head out to my alignment and No Star Bash.





Ran into a coolant leak, boost leak, and other small problems before the event even started. Only had about 3/10 of a mile on the car once I finally backed it off the trailer at Shawano. All in all though the car ran great dispite a potentially broken wastegate actuator.

I didn't take any pics during the weekend because I was having a blast driving the car. Luckily Jmuag Productions got a few, thanks. Should be some go pro videos somewhere if Chris can find them also.








And the coupe picks up pretty much right where I left off, still need to fix some stuff on the s14 but there is still a month till proving grounds and cars seem to be more fun to work on when your pressed for time :yikes:





Fenders don't seem to fit the best :lol:

Just gonna leave these here in my thread so I can at least throw out some what of a update post, think I'll be investing in a Go Pro soon.

Had an extensive coolant leak that has been bothering me since Shawano that I finally got fixed last thursday afternoon before PG's. Chris welded in bump stop extensions since I broke the last ones a No Star and the car was pretty much ready for Proving Grounds.

The event was a blast and as always full of drifting and other cool shit, pretty much if you didn't go you missed out.





Really happy with the way the car has turned out this year so far, and with these past two events (Shawano and Proving Grounds) I feel that I have picked up and learned a lot more about drifting then I did all of last year.



Will be looking into getting a cage very soon so I can start to participate in the tandemonium. Hopefully I will still be able to keep my interior :roll:

Yesterday my s13 SR power steering pump crapped out on me and since I am not a fan of hanging out the window to get enough leverage to make a left turn I looked for options to replace it with hopefully what I had sitting around in my spare parts pile. I came across a thread that had some info on it but not to much.


So the basics of it is you will need your SR power steering pump and brackets and also a ka power steering pump.

The KA power steering pump can either be from a s13 or s14 but it must be DOHC. SOHC power steering pumps will not work.

Steps

1. Remove your SR power steering pump along with tensioner bracket, you can leave the mounting bracket that connects to your motor in place.

2. Remove the pulley from both the SR pump and the KA pump, they will need to be swapped being that the KA ps pump has a much larger pulley.

The KA pump and pulley are on the left while the SR pump and pulley are on the right.


KA pump


SR Pump


Pretty much the same thing.



3. You will also need to swap over the mounting bracket from the SR pump onto the KA pump as well.

4. Install back onto you motor and enjoy power steering again.

Also make sure to use automatic transmission fluid not power steering fluid. DEX/MERC



And also, will be making my own lines for the power steering on the white car so the motor is back out so I can mess with the steering rack much easier and also do some much needed cleaning/degreassing of the motor.





Also removed all of the sound deadning/tar from the interior, except under the back seat. Wish I would have used dry ice instead of heat and a scraper. Brake cleaner worked good to help get rid of some of the chunks that were left over. Will be putting bedliner on the floor as soon as its all cleaned up.











Not much of an update I guess, just some progress.


Also went to talk with some guys about having them build me a cage for my car so I can do tandem runs next year, going to be trying to maintain as much of my interior as possible. Looking forward to that.

Finally put some decent work into the coupe this weekend

Took care of all the sound deadening and painted it up. Started putting the interior back together, still searching around the shop for missing parts.















Still trying to figure out some of the wiring for the motor harness, some plugs don't seem to match up :net:



Getting close to being back on the road soon, some electrical left, still need to make an exhaust, and just put the rest of the body back on.







and some other random shots at the shop
