s13 S13 takes its top off and a 2jz falls into place

7/18/16: Car was dyno'ed, made 405 whp at 16psi with 345 torque. Ready for paint

The story:
The first car I bought in 2015 was a barely rolling shell of a 1992 Nissan 240sx S13 Convertible. The 19 months that followed have been full of up and downs. I want to give a big thanks to all the true masters of their crafts, the shops, brands, distributors, and sponsors that made my dream come true especially Chris from Dirty Built who oversaw the A to Z of this whole project.

Shops and Distributors:
Dirty Built, JDM Engine Depot, Turn14, Titan Motorsports, MVP Motorsports, The Drive Shaft Shop, CXRacing, QFab, Elite JDM, E Shift Performance

Special Mention:
  • Chris from Dirty Built who put up with all my nonsense and never gave up.
  • Justin Collins from QFab who was the only brave soul willing to attempt making the wiring harness.
  • Rich Noll from Turn14 who made sure I always got what I needed the next day.
  • Will Flores from Titan Motorsports for all his advice and dedication to finding the parts I needed.
