[}--{ Detail about me }--{]
(If you find "Detail about me" become boring please skip to "The RP has being..." statement.)

Name: Danny Smiths
Known as: Zoom, Dr Zoom.
Age: 32
DOB: **/04/1986
Job: Owner local car garage.

Experienced: Motor Vehicle Maintaince And Repair (College & University), and self taught welding from my father who use be welder in the past.

Living: Birth and grew up on England, United Kingdom.

Background with relationship: I have few ex-girlfriend in past however I have girlfriend, we been together about 4 years. I met her on motorway, her Fiat Punto broke down on hard shoulder meanwhile I was behind her. Her phone was battery dead, I help her, later on she add her number into my phone then we been dates for years, dates was successful so it mean we are together for 4 years, that mean 5 years total.


[}--{ The RP has being... }--{]

I been owned my lovely Ford Fiesta 2003 light blue from I was 17 years old. I was looking something more JDM motor plus my gf was looking as well because her car getting more happening breakdown. She will scrapped her Punto, so I told her "You could buy my Fiesta, it got low mileage from my parent owned. My Fiesta don't kept breaking down. That car could perfect for you." She bought my Fiesta, so I have no car for fews day then, my friend just texted me about his car now for sale.

Make & Model: NISSAN Silvia.
Nickname: PS13 "Onevia".
Year: 1992
Engine: SR20DET




He want sell 5,000 V$ for that, the ECU wasn't working also driver side floor pan need patching up, the MOT will run out this month. Overall the condition are great, it have imported on 2000 which is my friend bought it. It have S14 brake kit with S14 wheel, Greddy front mouth intercooler, HKS air filter with custom inlet pipe, Koyo radiator, and Pignose pop up front end swapped. I think he asking me 5,000 V$ are bit too much for Onevia?

Ok then.

5,000V$ is a bit fine.

However I'll be selling the other 200SX I have for V$3500.

Once I finished the Type X conversion

I bought Onevia, it was amazing to drive but she need some work before MOT coming up. Rust need welding and new ECU need. I have ordered 2nd hand standard ECU, and it was waiting the game. I have spare time to work on my car, I been check underside, there no rust around, only floor pan on driver side so I been cutting around rust area. My friend who have metal leftover, he will drop off tomorrow at my house. So, I been wash and polished interior and exterior, damn she look so shine...

[}---{ Date: 21/06/18 }---{]

After I been cutting the rust area, the hole have been draw copied on the template where new metal can be to cutting around. I weld up with new metal then I paint it with rustproof treatment. I leave to dry...

There bad news, the smoke have blue colour so it won't passed MOT (last seller told me), darn you, new rules. MOT are now expired today. Sadly the ECU haven't arrive, should be tomorrow.


She waiting get road legal...

I have no idea why there blue smoke came from? I need your advice, my engine is 2.0 Turbo (SR20DET). Kept mind it 150KM and engine haven't rebuild.

Blue smoke means the either the piston rings or the valve guide seals have failed and the engine's burning oil. Does it makle a rattling noise when on start-up? Is the blue smoke only there on start-up? If hasn't had a rebuild then worst case scenario it's piston wear or head gasket failure :(

Also I'll be stopping over in the UK next week before I leave for the US in the summer holidays. I will stop over by your place before I head to Scotland.

I don't have clue noise while engine run because ECU are dead. I could use compression tester while hand crank.

My base was norther england (near Scot).

((I should mean to last seller told me about blue smoke))

Well shit.

I can sell you my good condition 200SX, SR20DE so no turbo but it's still good. Another problem is that that the steering wheel is on the left.

Sounds good but my brother is in the Scottish Highlands.

The ECU has arrive yesterday then I replace it, she starting no problem but engine wasn't made anything compressing fully. I turn off engine, disconnected fuel system to stop engine getting flood, I use compression test and write down on the note dry and wet test, I believed cylinder head have problem because I pull dipstick out and no air sucking was made. It look like my valve stem was worn out. I need think about head work, meanwhile I was strolling on Yahoo website and I found local one JDM white rear light boxed plus LED bulbs. He bought from Japan then it shipped to UK but he sold PS13 so he need sell again with same price so it pretty good deal, he can drive now to my house because we not far. He arrive and give me rear light then I slapped 90's NISMO logo sticker on light. It pretty looking good with dark blue paintwork. Not only LED are last longer, they won't make lens show up colours, they stay white but colour will show up if you use brake, indicator, etc.



Btw, the NIMSO stick print off the factory before they update logo. Head work going long time to finished due my working time.

You won't hear my SR20 because head was out, it would be nice bit speed up works on engine and other parts. I found really cool rims.

((off topic: I'm struggle to find 16 or 17 inch retro rim that matched my Silvia.))

Forgot mean to, here my do list before sent to MOT (word crossed out mean I done it):
1. Finish head work (re-new all gasket kit for whole top head, and flatten between head and block surface.)
2. New spark plugs, new ignition coils, all new filter, and all new fluid.
3. Pre-MOT checked. Replace part if they found fault.
4. Replaced rim.
5. Replace ECU.

It take me longer because I work most at my garage and I haven't much free time.

Yep, you hear that correctly, she now road legal! Aloud me to explain with each date.

[}---{ Date: 29/06/18 }---{]
The guest have arrive my house while I was processing final step to finished head work, it StratoWolf! He did helped me to finished head work, and bolting the new wheels that just arrive and I done wrapped tyre which I using Michelin Pilot. The cam cover I have been painting to lovely white instead boring common black while I was waiting for parts. He was impressed about my car, he wanted to having pull runs. I have to quick MOT first before I doing drive anywhere, the MOT was passed, it only minor fault are front pad wearing low but more than 1.5mm (limited to pass), I don't take photo, how sadly but he done take pic while I was quick passed him also he show me used ISR exhaust with shotgun style tips.

[}---{ Date: 03/06/18 }---{]

I been busy at my garage, but I have more chance to working ISR exhaust that I bought few days ago. I wasn't happy how my tailpipe position, it look hanging too low, so I have been adjusted position with my trusty welder, then I give her some fuel to drink same time I want to take pic.






So that all, it good news for my Silvia to back road legal but I need changed intercooler in future, it starting given me problem with boost, I seen intercooler are copied, not Greddy branded because there no Greddy stamp, it must be copied and build really cheap. (fucking chinese copied)

That problem with intercooler is interesting, even tho is a shitty chinese replica one it should work with stock engine, but I'm sure you will figure it out, also stay away from mishimoto stuff haha, just my opinion. Anyways, congrats on your MOT fam, S13 slowly getting in shape again. :thumbsup:

Sadly, no car update but I have something to tell you...

Me and my girlfriend have chat about American. She want go back because her parent living on LA. Recently her parent made shocking news told my girlfriend, then she did told me. Her mother fell ill and don't felt better lately, I was quite shock as well. My parent are agreed about me moving out to American living. I sold my Silvia to last owner because he want Silvia back so he will paid more than that I was asked price, I always willing try to drive different side. My girlfriend are legal to lived American because she was born there however I don't, I have got some paperwork to allowing myself lived American.

My girlfriend was impressed how I was cared her parent plus I always want to lived American one day. I being thinking work on Swapper garage so I been asked to them to see if they anything job are opened.

Oh I bought 4AGE 20V for my dad his track day car that he want 4AGE 20V but next day after I bought engine he being stupid, he said "I don't need engine, thanks for help". I like WTF? I planned re-fresh it then sell for small profit, I may reserved it for Skip.

Stay tune, everyone!

Good news, USA approved about me to living. :D
