    Blue s14a the box killer

    so ive bought myself yet another s-body (ive actully lost count how many ive owned)


    bought this little gem,
    seller didnt really know the spec and came with a fubar box (to be repaired)
    and a load noisey engine

    so lets begin
    its currently sitting on 365bhp (interesting number)
    not that ive actully driven the thing

    not really sure about these seats


    nor the gauges
    or the steering wheel


    little interesting thing ive spotted
    if you follow the black line from the catch tank it flows behind the afm pipe
    (now if im right then when on boost its sucking all oil pressure from the head?)


    and poof theres some nice evo 8 recaro's

    they do need a scrub but i couldnt wait

    then fitted my nardi


    car parts car parts


    now when i went to fit my new wheels i found this little issue

    im thinking of selling them as im not a big fan of hsd's (looks like theyve been abused a tad)

    fronts go on with some nice sticky advan ad08 tyres on brand new cst hyper zero 1's
    waiting on tyres for the rear



    then went to work on having a look to why the head is quite noisey

    good start with some hks cams n009 exhaust and n006 inlet
    so 264 cams

    hks cam pulleys
    hks step 2 head kit
    and tomei rocker arm stoppers explains a loud head noise

    cam covers back on with a dry carbon coilpack cover


    still to do
    get a new slam pannel
    get another gearbox or get the selector fixed for 5th and reverse
    spray sills with dynax s50


    fit
    smoothed off bootlid
    oem rear lights
    rear wheels
    part shop max subframe risers
    part shop max diff mounts
    a nice welded 4.1 r33 diff
    cusco rear camber arms
    cusco toe rods
    kinked front tension rods
    tein tie rods and ends
    jdm grill
    hks 2540r turbo kit
    power fc d jetro

    im starting to think i may have a bit of work to do

    wow large update, ive let this thread slide big time

    so nearly 3 years later the cars still not finished
    the spec has grown horribly

    so i sold the 2.1 sr engine the car came with
    bought back the old 2.2 sr that used to be in brett castles hks s14a
    thats been rebuilt and a couple of issues with it fixed
    waiting on custom parts is so long, like a custon 2mm headgasket takes 2 months










    upgraded the gearbox to a osgiken 5 speed with main shafts




    a cusco 2way diff 4.1 ratio with 5x1 bolt output shafts

    brand new extreme sprung twinplate clutch
