Steeze Kouki S14 LS1

CAR IS OFFICIALLY FOR SALE

It is to the point of finally making a build thread of my Nissan 1996 240sx SE S14.
Background on the car; I purchased the car the end of April 2014 from its original owner, she bought the car brand new back in 1996 and she made me promise I would take great care of the car lol. Overall plan for the car will be a full LS1 motor swap as well as a Kouki conversion too.

the day I picked the car up.



Sourced a LS1/T56 out of a 2001 Chevy Camaro SS







Motor and drivetrain all pulled, Bravo Motorsports putting in some serious work, cant thank Jesus enough for all he has done with helping on this project.



Fortune Auto 500series with radial top mounts and 16/14k springs






Parts Shop Max layout, gotta love that copper/gold



Gotta love that angle coming from those super angle knuckles





Sikky kit finally showed up, time to get serious now





Origin kit finally came in, cant wait to see it on the car




Subframe all painted



Steer and Save quick ratio rack is good to go, along with Bravo Motorsports rack for their twin turbo LS1 E46



Sikky raised subframe bushings are in.





Rear end is coming together very nicely, gotta love the Sikky/PBM combo



Cam install is all set





Bravo Motorsports did work on my engine bay, tubs came out amazing



dual valve spring and titanium retainer



New slave cylinder and throw out bearing with Sikky conversion fittings



awaiting the motor drop in



we are all ready to go now





finally in its home, looks so good in there



dual z32 rears with the help of the PBM rear drop knuckles




she is finally completed, I am so happy with how it turned out





kit is being mocked up now before paint





shaved bay is now in process



Tires are all mounted up. thank you Toyo Tires for the T1 Sports

Very nice build so far. A clean S14 to start with plus quality parts is a great combo. Keep it up man. Also, are the FA radial top mounts for all four coilovers?
