    Kuro Black 200sx S14a

    Hi all . Been on the forum for a few months and picked up my S14a a few weeks ago now so thought it was time to pay my membership and get a thread up!

    I had wanted a S14a for a long while after having my Total Vauxhall featured corsa!






    Which I then split a lot of the parts off of to fund the 200 and is now kept as a daily!

    So after months of searching and being very picky I found one that I liked. Some May recognise it as I made the long trip up to Wakefield to collect the car from "Cheif" off of here . It was well worth the journey and I'm still so happy with it!

    Here's a few photos I've managed to grab this evening .













    Sorry about the image quality! Will hopefully grab some better ones soon! Here's a full spec list of the car.

    Nissan 200sx S14a "1997"
    Kuro Black (KH3)
    56,000 miles
    1 owner from new (I'm the second)

    Engine :
    369BHP (at the flywheel)
    314bhp (at the wheels)
    Garrett GT2871r (.86)
    Apex Type 1 Manifold
    Apex Cone Filter
    Apex Turbo Elbow
    Apex Decat
    Apex Short Shifter
    Z32 AFM
    Z32 Fuel Filter
    Nismo 740cc Injectors
    Sard Fuel Pressure Regulator
    Walbro Fuel pump
    Blitz Intercooler
    HKS Silent Hi Power Exhaust
    Greddy Rocker Arm Stoppers
    Tomei 270 Procams
    Tomei 1.2mm MHG
    Tomei Valve Springs
    Cusco Catch Can
    Nismo Engine and Gearbox Mounts
    Mocal Oil Cooler and Sanwich Plate

    Transmission :
    Fidenza Lightened Flywheel
    Act Organic Clutch

    Suspension :
    Tein Monoflex Coilovers
    Whiteline Anti Roll Bars
    Cusco Camber Arms
    Apex Alignment Kit
    Apex Strut Brace
    Powerflex Subframe Bushes

    Wheels and Tyres :
    R33 GTR Wheels
    Goodyear Eagle F1 Tyres

    Brakes :
    Nismo Front Brake Ducts
    R33 GTR Brembo Front Calipers
    DBS Series 4000 Discs (front)
    Ferodo DS2500 Pads (front)
    Brembo Discs (rear)
    EBC Yellowstuff Pads (rear)

    Electronics :
    Apexi Power FC
    Apexi AVCR Boost Controller
    Racelogic Traction Control

    So as you can see the car really did come with a nice spec and as you can imagine it's quite a difference coming from a 1.4 90bhp corsa!!

    Since I've had the car Ive fitted my OMP Corsica 350mm Smooth Leather Steering Wheel wich I had in my corsa along with a new OMP Boss (drilled for indicator cancel) and D1 Spec Quick Release! Aswell as a AEM Digital Boost Gauge!




    I've also fitted a set of 6k HID's along with Osram Nightbreakers, SMD sidelights and Numberplate lights in a bid to try and modernise the car as it felt/looked slightly dated IMO.

    I'm also very keen with Detailing so I've slowly been getting the car up to a reasonable standard. It's not 100% yet as I've haven't had a chance to get the Machine polisher out but it's getting there!

    I have a lot of plans and ideas but my immediate plan is to source new wheels (probably some form of rotas) and also get my private plate swapped over!

    I'll probably edit this post as there's more than likely stuff I've missed to add in but hope you guys enjoy!

    Thanks! I like them, but like I said before I feel they look slightly dated? They'll soon be changed anyhow .

    Nice car mate. Serious step up in power from the Corsa so take your time and get used to it. Can quite easily catch you out on a wet/slippery/dry/basically any surface.

    I carried on with cleaning the car up today. Took the front bumper off and cleaned up the Intercooler and pipe work, all the arch plastics and anything else I could get too.







    However whilst I was cleaning I noticed this little mistake by whoever fitted the bumper last!!



    Yes last time the bumper was fitted by who ever done it, they've mounted it into the cold side FMIC pipe work!! And it looks like they've had a few goes at it too lol. There's a few marks in the same sort of area on the hot side too but no actual holes! Going to whip it off soon and have it welded up .

    Had the rear bumper off today to have a look what it's like on the rear panel. Was pleasantly surprised . Few pictures after a quick clean down!





    Couple small surface patches like this.



    But nothing to complain about! Once it's off the road over winter I'll sort it then!

    Looking awesome Nath. It's so clean. Don't think I've ever seen one with all the front arch liners in place!

    Can't believe that cold pipe :/

    Haha, I wouldn't be able to do that! I'll be treating the surface rust over winter once it's off the road before it gets any worse .

    Mate this car is epic someone has taken crazy amounts of care over it. Go careful with the extra powers man

    people struggle going from a corsa to a stock 200 let alone stage 3a, look like your really putting the work in too, get that intercooler pipe tigged up and your home free.

    Thanks dude! Yeah Howard (previous owner) looked after the car very well and from what I've seen/found on the car so far (apart from the boost pipe) has been top notch! Should see the history and paperwork I've got for it lol!

    Yeah it's quite a jump and a learning curve too. Just want more money now to buy more parts haha

    I thought you were going to be some spotty yob that does burnouts in mcdonalds looking at your Corsa. However what you've done already makes the car look almost new. Far more effort than I can be bothered to do! Wanna trade mine for yours!???

    Well done, You'll enjoy it, no doubt about that!

    Minter, good buy on the S14a!

    The Corsas pretty cool too; like the Porsche wheels and headlight ducts!
