Looking good.
Quality looks great to me, they even put the fire sleeving on the lines. And yes, I bought the one with a restrictor.

Yeah, I could have had it welded up just as easily I guess, but 240sx Motoring had a great deal on the GReddy kits, so I decided to just go that route.

Not a lot going on with the build at the moment. I took the insurance off of the car a couple of days ago and it is getting ready to go into storage. Snapped a couple cell pics after I washed it:





Installed a roof spoiler a couple of weeks ago, but it still needs paint if I decide to keep it:



I decided to change up my gauge setup a bit. I had a set of 5 white face defi link gauges, 52mm. 3 are installed and 2 are chilling in a box. I found these 60mm black face gauges on Zilvia today, so I snatched them up and plan to sell my white ones:



The white gauges were left from my Solara and looked great in a white car, but I prefer the black face for the 240.

Oh, and one other thing happening over the winter:





Going with full kouki 180sx aero. Front bumper with OEM lip, center rear valence piece, and kouki wing are on the way. Side skirts will be purchased soon and if all goes well, the car will get a fresh coat of OEM black paint in the spring. Should be a fun winter... I'll keep everyone posted!

I sold the carbon hood and hatch- Kind of got tired of the carbon thing. I think i will get the Kevlar RPS13 panel for the rear when I go full kouki though...

I had the cf hatch on from about June to September... I sold it to fund the new turbo setup (and by "fund" I mean keep the wife happy, lol). I really liked it a lot, it was a sweet piece... the only thing I didn't like was not having the struts back there- that got kind of old pretty fast. Carbon on black was hit or miss for me too... my car just wasn't clean enough to pull it off IMO.

Thanks for the props!

Just a quick update on some parts I have been collecting:

Traded my GReddy oil pan for a Tomei Expreme turbo manifold:





Kouki 180SX spoiler and rear center valence:



Ganador mirrors:





OEM Hatch window visors:



And a better pic of the gauges:



Super busy right now, but I should start installing everything within the next couple of weeks.

I read that you "found out" the car already had a walboro in it, and so you are not going to replace it.

REPLACE IT.

The guy could have only had it in for a month, but was a cheap drifter, fuel sloshing the car all over with no gas in the tank. Those walboros overheat really fast, and break even faster.

So if you don't know that you did it, I wouldn't risk the engine on it, especially with a turbo upgrade on the way.

Z32TT OEM fuel pump is a little pricey but almost indestructible with more flow than you need.

Front lip was xenon. If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me that, I could finish my build. lol.

And thanks for the advice on the fuel pump- I was considering replacing it anyway with a hard wire kit just to be safe. It is probably a few years old now, so I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to replace it. I know the car wasn't drifted and was rarely driven before I bought it, but it would be cheap insurance for sure.

I bought it from a member in Ohio. I was in contact with Speed Alliance about buying one new before I found mine, and it sounds like they can still get them (this was about a year ago). The price they gave me back then was $375 shipped with a 2-4 week wait time. Not sure if that has changed or not, but try shooting them an email.

Thanks for the compliments! Getting anxious to tear into the bay and get this going.

Just read through the whole build. You definitely got a lot of nice stuff done in a short amount of time. Let me know if you need some kouki side skirts, my parents live in Japan .
