s14 *Snooze alert* Bring on the h8, just another V8

Ls1 t56 S14 Kouki build

In October 2001 I crashed my first car, a 93 coupe Se


got a 96 zenki to replace it


The white zenki lasted me a little over a year. May of 2003 I drove to NYC to purchase the car which this build thread is based upon, my 98 kouki.


Started doing some light mods, lowering springs/shocks, Hid's, CF hood, Gt spec exhaust









then megan coilovers, z32 brakes, subframe spacers, switched to rsr gt2 exhaust because ground clearance sucked on apexi gt spec, etc.

Also did z32 wheels, z33 wheels, and g35 wheels






scooped an s14 sr




driveshaft shop 1 piece driveshaft, diff bushings, nismo trans mount, etc





powered by max flex cobra downpipe

drop in day





making progress



decided to do s15 front, now i debate whether or not i made the right choice. *Mind made up, going back to kouki





ARC oil pan


digital climate control

took it to re spec garage to figure out a fuel issue


took it to ma motorsports in baltimore to diagnose some strange noises







turns out the weird noises were that some jackass put my throw out bearing in backwards and it actually melted to my pressure plate, my flywheel wasnt torqued so it was loose and beating up against back of block, and timing chain guide was broken.


sent my z32 uprights to stephen knoop (fortune auto ls1 s14, va beach) to have the lower shock mounts reclocked to get rid of the wretched binding that occurs when using these on s14, also had def's speherical bearings put in.





Work Rezax wheels



Trust DD exhaust



Instant gentleman s15 kit

Can you tell me more about reclocking the Z32 uprights? I have some laying around but I thought they only fit S13's, what is the advantage?

Thank you. I thought it looked familiar. I had it on my list of colors already.

Glad you could confirm it for me.

I must have been confused thought I saw this car or one very similar for sale recently. Regardless very nice build and beautiful color. What trans are you going to run?

As far as the pix I use IMGUR and when I go to paste the pix I click on the "Large Thumbnail" option on the right hand side and the pictures are usually a good size but not overwhelming.

the advantage is something like 10 pounds less unsprung weight per side over the cast iron stock ones. the angle on an s14 lends itself to some binding, so reclocking and sphericals is really the only way to go...its so nice now!!

Are you the one that switched from the pbm coils to the scale ones?


I saw on a build thread just a couple of hours ago that someone was getting the scale coils but was unsure if it was you or not. I reread your post and see nothing now lol.

Thanks.

BTW - I have been uploading pics to imgur but they are still huge, I have no idea what I am doing wrong but it is way too time consuming for me to keep investing time into it with garbage results.

So click on your image in IMGUR and when you do on the bottom right should be something that notes "large thumbnail"...click on that and your picture is resized. You can copy and paste the "webforums" type code and paste here.

ahh I cant see any pics at work! I'm doing a LS S14 as well, and I'm going with the completed fueled performance kit, unless you recommend to piece together like you did? full kit has all mounts, drive shaft, long tubes, power steering lines, and oil pan.

any advice would be greatly appreciated
