PostSubject: the car that will never run!   June 28th 2012, 8:42 pm

been wanting to put up a build thread here so here it is gonna try and condense it in a short and simple post

picked this up my first s13 in bloomington il



felt so good to have a s13 finally then randomly meet kevin at a no FWD meet at sushi station

sold the hatch then picked this up some where 3 hours in wisconsin







had the basics on it lowering springs gt spec exhaust s14 seat some grant steering wheel CF hood

didnt like the stock wheels so picked these up here from aric actually



got excited and put them on even though the car looked like poo





then saved some money and got this



lowered my car a lil





purchased this from rad mike!



put it on i felt cool with a seat hah



got a welded from adrian at oodang garage also gave him my s14 seat and a half a case of broken coronas Crying or Very sad





cool pic that kevin took



then did some drifting





broke a lot of shit got all sad and whatever

traded my zeta 2 rep for lowmax rep i think from ryan i dont remember



started the rebuild process with ian



then james and peter helped out also



^ hah

bought a shell with a lot of extra stuff with the intent to swap everything over but the kid before me trashed the back of it so sold it and made some profit off of that

bought new fronts from here



some shit was stuck so adrian had to cut some stuff up





painted the car then ended up like this







saved some money picked this up from mykem



it was way to trashed so i sold it to some random person

then picked this up from oodang david





saved more money and trucky hooked me up with wheels, spacers, rear overs, front fenders so i stocked piled all this during winter





put some stuff on david helped me put the overs on then traded my bumper for mikes stream



picked up a rear bumper from wutangben origin stylish/stream/vertex rep



got skirts and ended up looking like this







prepped the car in the parking lot lol and traded the gt spec for blast pipes from mike









ghetto paint in the garage





then it turned out like this

There's something called priorities in life that you have to tend to its not about cars 100% of the time that's something you won't never understand because you don't have priorities kid and as far as using same pictures no shit? I do not have a build here do I? You need to work on your people skills instead of talking so much smack on line you should do something with you're life

okay so lets side track to 2003 this was nackers coupe that he built sometime i think it was 2003? someone correct me if im wrong

http://www.cardomain.com/ride/485692/1989-nissan-240sx

then he sold it to omar then omar sold it to some random guy then teo bought the car then i bought it off of teo some history hah

got it from teo like this







tossed my seat on and wheels from the old car



didn't like how the cut up pignose looked so i bought front bumper off of my friend which turned out to be keiths old jam from dabz also traded the metal fenders for +20mm





painted in the garage againn





then hit up wekfest





then blew the turbo maybe 3 weeks after i forgot

so i decided to switch up and change everything sold my aero and seats car sat like this for a while





then my buddy hit me up he still had his SR chilling in his garage since highschool sold it to me for a very very good price why let a good motor go to waste was sitting for 4-5 years maybe if so which was PERFECT TIMING because I started engine building class decided to pick it up and wanted to build it talk to pavel about it and gave me advice and info also the people at tf





transported it to school the motor was missing some things and also half taken apart so me and my buddy started the tear down

the block it self



VC off



pretty clean



pic of the head off



had this thing through out the whole semester pretty cool a must have when you are rebuilding/building engines



we started from the bottom up had to take off the lower oil pan and upper oil pan

look at all that old ass sludge build up



had a lot of rtv cleaned it up a bit



later on found this on the lower oil pan ( found out to be a piece of the timing chain cover )



more rtv





and more rtv



cleaned it up





labeled and cleaned up



next day we tore it down even more

timing chain cover off more rtv



tossed the upper and lower oil pan in the hot tank



came out clean



every other thing i took to the parts washer

time to move on to the head

over all pretty clean nothing too crazy





started taking all of the valve train off



organized shit so I don't loose anything





power washed the shit outta the head



then hot tanked it



then we started to really clean and inspect the head

before shots





After shots I was working the head with the fine hair wire brush attachment in a drill then used small wire brushes the exhaust ports were a bitch to clean and get in too







tossed it in here again





that shit took about 30 mins so me and my partner cleaned out the valves



30 mins later









thats enough for now

if you need any sr valves/springs/retainers I have a spare SR head with those things still in it. Dunno if you're going aftermarket or what, but I've heard those sodium(?) filled sr valves are kinda pricey sometimes.

idk, i didn't read anything, just saw you stripped your head down, wasn't sure if you need anything.
