Some of you may remember my last project on here: forum.retro-rides.org/thread/207568/1988-mazda-b2000-nascar-truck?page=1&scrollTo=2472754
I sorta did a whole lot to it and then fell out of love for it, but hey ho.
I'm back with a new to me project which sorta ties in with the truck, in that the engine in the S13 I now own, came out of my old S14 and originally went into the truck before it was swapped out for the MX5 turbo lump. Not that anyone really cares, it's just a tenuous link.
Anyways! Here's my new project which I'm hoping to have done for the Weekender 2020 and then to hopefully keep a hold of rather than sell when it's "finished", we'll see.
Don't get too excited as it's still very much a project and certainly not a looker at the moment.
Current spec is as follows:
- 1994 Nissan 200SX S13 SE (UK)
- Originally a CA18DET auto
- Now an SR20DET manual
- Walbro 225
- Apexi filter
- Tial BOV
- Apex coilovers
- Z32 brakes all around with HUGE floating discs up front
- Barry-spec exhaust which is way too loud
Plans are pretty basic really. It'll be a street car predominantly but with scope to use on track and maybe a drift day here and there. Will see how we go.
It has a full interior which is actually in quite nice condition, so most of that will be staying and bodywork will stay as subtle as possible, but certainly a colour change!
So to fit:
- JDM rear bumper
- Wide rear arches (as they have already been tubbed)
- Wide fronts to match
- 16x9 et-25 Watanabe reps
- Bucket seat
- Boost gauge
- Remove BOV
- Up the boost
And that's where we are!
I've only the one picture really at the mo, but it is MOT'd and road legal and is weirdly slow compared to my other SR20's... maybe I'm getting old and thought they were faster than they were when I was young, who knows!?
So yeah, keep em peeled and I'll hopefully catch you at Goodwood next year!
