PostSubject: Thes13project Build Thread...Almost Finished   September 5th 2008, 12:07 am

I use to be on here a lot more frequently but my work schedule and other stuff going on has killed my internet forum time...lol

I know there were a few people on here that saw the entire build thread on Zilvia that are on here but didnt know that it was mine. So heres a few pics of before and after and a link with all the other photos.

This was the day I brought it home, this was the 2nd car in this build process. The first one had so much rust I cut it up and sold it off for parts.



The guy who owned the car thought he was a master fabricator, he thought wrong.



So after many hours of drilling countless spot welds, the new oem structure was spec'd and welded into place.



Countless hours and time have went into it since those days. She now looks like this currently. Still have a lot more work to do but its definitely came along way.





Ill post a mod list tomorrow on the car if anyones interested.

Heres the link to the entire pic thread from start to where its at currently.

Thanks for checking it out.

PS. Is Tyler still around??? He disappeared from the Drift Indy forum....lol

Well the cars wiring and me arent jiving really well lately. Im hoping that Ill get it figured out, some jumper wires and a fresh battery should show me if im right or still way off.

I did pick up some new wheels for the whooride, early xmas gift from the wifey and parents and some of my own chedda.

Volk GTN 18x9(+12) 18x10(+15)

So after watching a much needed day of Football, I decided to go throw a few of the wheels on.



Super Happy with the fit on the front running a 225/40 on the 18x9



However the rear tires are too wide (285/30) so Im thinking 245/40s and some camber should get me flush.

Those wheel specs are where its at for stock metal.

Cool.

Thanks, I know the front end isnt for everyone. Some people like, other people not so much, but that goes with anything. Hoping to get some different tires this week to get rid of the brickhouse setup in the rear...lol

That paintjob came out really nice, I also have to go with D*Star, im not a big fan of the conversion.

Everyone has their own taste, but except the front, i love everything about it.

Do you have any other plans for the engine; what kind of set up will you be running?

The goal for the motor is gt2871r, tomei cams, and 550 injectors. I really need to do some more homework on what setup Im going to use for tuning. Id like to make around 350whp and just have fun beating the shit out of it...lol

Well for starters get a N62 MAF because with that turbo, those cams and those injectors and that horsepower goal you will max out that stock maf. Also best tuning option is either ROM tune or a Real Time ECU. Dont get a cheap piggyback because it wont do the job well and it will end up costing you as much as a ROM tune and/or a real time ecu.

If you want a basic Rom Tune for your setup Enthalpy does them for around $600. The less expensive and more versatile route is to get a Calumsult ECU which is basically the stock ecu with a chip on it that turns your ECU into almost a standalone in the sense that it allows you to tune on the fly and you can easily datalog all sorts of engine parameters. Best part is the turn around time is pretty quick, and its about $300 including shipping. Only major drawback is that tuning would require someone knowledgable unless you try it yourself. Also it uses open source software so it takes a bit to learn it but well worth it in the end. Really great learning experience.

The calum real time ecu is also fully compatible with the more expensive Nistune software which is a really baller way to tune your nissan. Its like AEM standalone but jsut uses your stock ecu capabilities.

Last but not least you can opt for something more expensive like an Apexi FC or a AEM standalone etc. But really the calum and the enthalphy are the most reliable and cost effective. Hit me up if you need more info.

Car looks real nice, well put together. I for one love that front end conversion, i was planning to convert my hatch to an s14 front end but decided to stay stock. Keep up the good work.
