Ok, I've just realized that I've been doing quite a bit of work to this thing and figured I'd start up a thread for it.
Here is the history...
I bought the car late last fall from some guy. The car originally had a Redtop SR20DET in it, but it wasn't running. Also had S13 Silvia front end, Turbo XS bov, Ebay FMIC, Koyo Radiator, Samco hoses, unknown clutch/flywheel, Tein tension rods, Invidia N1 exhaust, and carbon fiber console lid (yuck!!).
I needed the car as a winter driver so I decided instead of leaving the redtop in the car and trying to figure it out, I would take the DOHC out of my 94 Convertible 240 and put it in the hatchback and put the redtop into the vert.
After all that nonsence was finished, I went and sold the S13 Silvia front for 2 reason's. 1. I don't like Sil-eighty's, exspecially haggard ones. 2. I figured I was gonna beat the shit out of this car and figured why waste $800.00 by keeping the front end. I then grabbed my old bumper, fenders, and headlights from my old coupe and bought a hood. But we decided to cusomize...
Then a whole lot of nothing happened for a bit and I decided to get a steering wheel from Edgar. Went out to Chicago and got it, but unfortunatly I also found a blonde lady from Wisconsin driving a Hummer H2 in Chicago. She gave me a P.I.T. manuver but luckly realized it after rubbing my rear quarter.
So I talk to Tyler and had him cut me up a sticker.
A bunch of driving. Got some 5mm spacers and put on my old Tein HE coilovers and new rotors/pads all round. A bit of sliding, clipped a few curbs, bent a couple wheels. Then Chicago240 meet comes up.
I got some baller ass hubcaps from Angel so I had to put them bitches on.
So a bit happens, more sliding, more driving, less curbs and I started noticing my car pulling every once and a while. Jack it up and found my outter tie rod is bad. Call into Touge Factory and have a set of Tein inner and outter tie rods on their way.
I also just got in a Nagisata auto (NAMS) dual lock seat rail in for my GreenMachineS13 special red fiberglass bucket seat. I need to get a harness bar and harness cause the stock belt setup really blows with the seat. I'll get pics of that later.
So where I sit now I'm planning to be ordering some stuff in the next month or so. Here is my wishlist as of now:
Suspension links (RUCA, toe, traction at least)
New set of Stance GR+
Circuit Sports 5 lug conversion hubs
Nismo 60mm extended studs
Zauber Dish wheels 17x8 +10 17x9 +14
205/215 / 40/45 / 17 Not sure on size
Then here I'm a bit confused.
Either more suspension and V:S aero
***** OR *****
Basically stock Redtop motorset
I'm leaning twords the aero and suspension first. Mostly because of gas prices and secondly because I always tell myself I'm going to finish the footwork first, but always end up with a Redtop before I finish, or in some cases, even get started.
But anyway, thats my build up so far. I should be having some good stuff comming soon.
