1.5JZ Zenki build

Been running S13s for a few years. Figured it was time for a change.

Purchased a 95 S14 SE non ABS and no sunroof


fixed a couple minor issues that would drive me crazy later if left alone




things were done




updated the headlights and threw on aero





now messing with this


this


and fitting these


currently waiting on parts to finish up fitting the motor so I can get the shifter extension done and driveshaft made.

changing out the 17" original step lips Equips (not original specs at all tho)


to 18" meisters


also. am trying to find a pair of USDM zenki headlights with good mounting points (that are under 200) so I can build another set of the chaser retrofit headlights and make a thread on the process.

for now here's the couple pics i did take:

all you need from the zenki headlight


shaved down chaser headlight


chaser guts in the zenki frame


after everything has completely cured

Its definitely a much slower build than I was planning, but it always come down to parts availability. I retrofitted the headlights with the help of a friend

one year later.....and nothing much has gotten done:

tubbed the front fenders


thought this was the way it was going to go.....


sold the built 1.5JZ and picked up these, all very similar specs, to fit with the ZG flares


....then this happened


now need to sell all those wheels and pick up ones that will fit the TRA V2 flares without needing 30mm spacers.

Subscribed. Loving the build. Any pics of how much did you shave off of the back of the zenki housing?

If not those then I am not sure what you are asking about.

Sorry my bad lol, I meant the zenki headlight housings for the chaser retrofit and do you have any pics of the back of the headlights after completion? Also how is the light distribution at night with them?

This is the housing without the plastic or chrome lenses:


This is all that was needed for the retrofit:


Chaser headlight housing trimmed down to necessity:



Glued and sealed


Honestly the light output isnt terrible, but I would not want to be driving in the mountains at night with any rain or fog. The light is there its just not directed correctly. If/when I build another set I will more than likely retrofit a LHD correct projector setup into the chaser housings.

Thanks for the info. I was considering this as an option if I don't retrofit my current headlights. I have jdm housings with clear lenses at the moment and the output is terrible lol. The chaser retrofit with proper projectors does sound interesting though.

Got it through my shop KoruWorks. If you want one let us know. We do not keep them in stock so it will take some time once ordered.

Yea the V2 completely engulfs 18s. Almost considering 19s, but the cost per tire is damn insane. Maybe a set of 19s just for rollers, but stick with 18s for drifting. Always nice to hear we are getting love from the Atlanta community.

Currently building up the motor and making sure everything is nice and fresh while waiting on HKS cams. Picked up some new wheels that should fit the flares better. 18x11.5-30 rears. Still waiting on the fronts which will be 18x9.5-35.

One of the rears

I can't wait to see this car finished. I absolutely love the S13 flares and skirts. How much "massaging" was needed to fit them to the S14?

Props to you sir!
