Hey Joel,

I think it's because I have Origin Type 3 fenders... I feel that the OEM metal fenders fit the KBD front bumpers better. I had a friend with a similar issue with Type 3 fenders and another one that had no idea what we were talking about... Turns out the guy that had no issues had OEM metal front fenders. Tyler (my other buddy with type 3 fenders) and I both assumed because the Type 3 fenders bow the front bumper out slightly, that was causing our gap issues.

One way others have recommended is using the OEM brackets to attach your front bumper and front fenders together off the car... then have a buddy or two help place the front bumper and fenders on as one whole unit. Sounds like a headache but 2 guys on IG recommended me to do that.

I'm curious if that's a uniquely s13 issue. The bumper mounting for my type 3 fenders on my s14 are in the factory spot so maybe it won't be something I need to be concerned with.

I guess this is a very abstract concern as they have yet to make the KBD kouki bumper

No idea. Type 3 fenders are wider then OEM so the polyurethane molded for a certain width will bow out different.

Tron's S13 Hatch // PNW

Just an update, I made it through 3 drift events since I dynoed 345whp/314tq and I blew out 2nd gear. I was hot lapping and initiating in third (no clutch kicks, just faint entry) and I down shifted into 2nd and got on it. 2nd gear left the chat. I bought a Z32 transmission and I’ll be swapping that in as soon as I can.

Added some photos from when I street drove the car 3 hours to spirit peaks. I’m lucky it didn’t go out while I was down south.

Tron's S13 Hatch // PNW

I started taking apart the Z32 transmission to send the bell housing off to Mazworx. I was having a really difficult time removing the check spring ball and retainer plug in the size of the bell housing. I made a short video on how to get that off:

I bought the Xcessive Manufacturing shortened bracket to reposition the Z32 shifter to work with the stock 240sx tunnel hole and everyone on Facebook told me to throw the Xcessive linkage out the window. Apparently their notorious for binding up or falling apart? Dpomps offered to cut and weld the stock linkage. Basically if you remove the 3-4 inch bar between the U joints, the length is almost identical to the linkage. Other people on Facebook suggested using the LOJ Conversion linkage, which is a higher quality machined link.

Derrik has dealt with the same issues others reported and advices to just go this route.

I won't get Mazworx adapter kit until probably the last week of March, so this is cutting it close for the April events. I'll probably have to slap this in the day before PARC.

Well since I blew up my transmission, I bought another KA transmission to get me to paint. I brought my car to Frowsh's dad's to work on it on the lift.

Turns out my life that weight flywheel teeth was destroyed from the old starter I just replaced.

I replaced it with an OEM flywheel I had laying around. Yes I cleaned it, no I didn't have time to resurface it. When I throw the z32 transmission in, I will get another flywheel resurfaced.

Here's my little adventure to Bend Oregon to get my car painted.


I am terrible at talking to myself, I also have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to vlogging. I mostly create these videos to look back on as memories. Plus my mom has no idea what I do with this motorsports, so I share it with her.
