update time!

car is running alive, well and quiet.. did all routine maintenance on it. only "mod" at the time was installing a hallman v2 mbc. it holds good boost and doesnt spike or any of that nonsense.

picked these up from 90hatchie for 350 with the lower garnish and already wired up


getting all excited and impatient i threw it on and mocked the wing up.. knowing that i need to get a bumper now!


i went to freedom moves and saw my future if i went ka-t LOL. apparently they got this running by the end of the night and the next day it lasted about 4 runs and did the same thing. ill keep my sr :]


couple of weeks later i got my heat shield powdercoated so i put it on


finally threw out the ka and sold the trans


absoluetly no oil in it and all of this summers rain inside



next little project.. nyc plus stiff coilovers= chassis cracking -__- sprayed some stuff in it and took it to my friend chris to get repaired since i have no welder/nor experience


ill try to find the pic but he filed it down.. tacked it and threw a plate over it.. good as new. but we soon discovered more headache. vvv

welllll this wasnt there when i bought the car last year.


cut out, fixed, sealed shut and now my car doesnt smell like wet dog


prob the most recent pic but now it started to crack somewhere else


but anyways, back to business


i got rid of the electric fans.. less headache. i had a stock sr fan clutch laying around and bought the shroud brand new.. looks so much better imo


2 days later the coolant return hose started to leak, but fixed it


chillin at work.. best friends LOL


from here the car goes into another "chill out and drive mode" till i find something else to splurge on and make the next step. i got a innovate wide band and sold the sparco steering wheel i had for a 350mm personal steering wheel.. ill try to get pics of both tomorrow since i never really got any actual pics.

did a little shoot w my friend before i made some changes






but like i said, the car can only go up from here so the wheels went bye bye and so did the bumper


got a great deal on a bumper, position lights, bumper support, foam, extensions and turn signals.


picked up a lip from 180sxdrifter and prepped everything for a a semi decent maaco job


off topic but i had a jdm tach that was like retarted, so i kept my stuff but swapped faces... the odometer still reads in miles not km. plus i swapped where the gas light is just because it was cool and has that toaster thing LUL.








the wing is painted also which maybe this week i can get it mounted.. along with some other goodies.. hopefully i have some updates for you guys this week

update time, its finals week so ive been a tad busy.. enough with the excuses and gather round for story/pictor time!

so yeah, the xxr's were sold and i was riding around with the coilovers raised all the way for a while, it was actually fun since i didnt need to dodge anything and the car was soft. the main reason i sold the wheels was because my friend had his works which he was planning to sell so i was going to get them but obv im 4 lug. so i was in search for just a simple 5 lug conversion and just get s14 5 lug rotors blahblah. wound up finding a set for cheap and someone else wound up sending a payment 30 seconds before i did. so stuck for lik3 4 days without funds i found a complete 5 lug conversion with front and rear z brakes with drilled and slotted rotors for 350. awesome deal and a few days later i got em.




mitsubishi. wtf..? wound up being that they werent z brakes but rather 3000gt vr4 brakes.. which happen to be a rebadged r33 skyline gts-t caliper so basically takes the same rotors and pads as a z32 tt. should i keep the mitsubishi for lulz??



i really dont see the need for rear z brakes and all but for the price i got this stuff for.. why not


funds were short for a little bit so this stuff collected dust for a tad till i got the wheels. finally i couldnt wait anymore.. the weather was getting colder so i decided to atleast do the back since i need a spacer for the s14 spindles



stupid contraption


ran into issues with this thing hitting my rotor. after i spent all day freezing my ass off the car refused to move after i installed all of this resulting in vvv


fixed :]


two weeks ater these came in. time for fronts




straight forward install.. this weather sucks ass tho here in ny so it wasnt fun working in the dark


slam slam.. i chickened out and shaved the letters.. didnt wanna g3t [email protected] y0.


wing mock up after paint, been really lazy to put this thing on.


and test fit. my friend has some giant 265's these things and i got no money, so i gotta make it work. im def gonna run a 225/45 soon if i dont trade these for a secret set of wheels that i dont wanna spoil if it all works out.


i got some clear side markers and there you have it. these are the wheels. work stich mesh 17x8.5+5/17x9+10

if i dont trade these soon the goal is to get these wheels refinished to be like my dream car that i have posted up on the 1st page. i wanna go lower but i want to enjoy this crappy frp for atleast a little bit. plus this happened already. gotta love nyc.

Haha, I wanted to steering away from the whole teenager sticker look. I'm 21 so its gotta be classy. I wanna remove the tint from the rear hatch too but I need a privacy cover first >.<!

My friend did a little mini shoot, not soo crazy about it but I'm gonna try to get some good shots real soon
