Now 400~450hp game sounds much easier with that turbo my peebroski, glad to see S15 stepping up from dead to alive.

YEAH BOIII, time to get to WORK

Let's GET THIS BREAD. Now hurry up and finish your S15 SO WE CAN DO TANDEMS YO

Added a month and a half later:

LET'S GET THIS BREAD (OR POTATO)


First of all, before I continue on my S15 chronicles, CHECK OUT NIATROSS' THREAD RIGHT NOW! He (finally) has coverage of our New Years Party at WestKyo! Special guests include Rifky (Shez) in a DC5, Yuan (BigSmoke) in a CE9A, Marc (Macaron_moon) in a CZ4A, among others!! GO PEEP

NOW, following an EPIC hangout with Yuan (BigSmoke) and Muzahid (Niatross) (Check out BigSmoke's RP RIGHT NOW IF YOU HAVEN'T YET AND READ UP ON OUR CRUISE!), I got jealous of Niatross' E46 and decided it was time for the S15 to come back.

After work I dropped by the favorite Sushi Bar and grabbed some food to go.



Then I drove STRAIGHT to WestKyo to finish the job. "PROJECT ICHIGO WILL RUN TODAY," I said to myself.



I finally unboxed my Nismo goods and fitted them to the car with no problems, I also relocated the battery back to the hood, makes doing the wiring less of a chore. Fuel Pump in, Fuel Pressure Regulator in, Injectors in. I had Macaron_moon fab me up a new charge pipe to fit my intercooler, as well as a new flange to install my intake pipe with the MAF. But I ordered a brand new BOSCH JECS Z32 MAF from eBay, and it should arrive tomorrow, just in time for the tune.

After everything was completed, I checked to see if the engine was ready. Then I topped up with some Royal Purple Engine Oil (10W40). And it was time to start it up, for the first time in a while (2 months I believe).



START...


.....START...



..........START...



...............START...



....................START...




COME ON JUST START THE FUCK UP ALREADY


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


IT'S FINALLY RUNNING AGAIN YASSSSS



Checked if everything was in order for the last time, then I shut the doors. It was time to take it out for a spin.



BOIIII IT'S MAKING BOOST AGAIN!! I'm at wastegate pressure right now though, disabled the boost controller for now because we don't want a another turbo problem smh. Boost gauge is giving me a reading of 0.6-7 bar. Not bad at all!



But the car feels like a new animal. DIFFERENT. Response is MUCH better, I can notice the lag, not a lot but it's definitely there. But boy oh boy when it comes on boost WOOOOOOOOOOWEEEEEEEEEEE. Now I gotta get the Z33 MAF on the car, and then tune time. WITH DYNO FIGURES. Stay tuned!



WE BOOLIN OUT HERE

UNEPIC FUN TIME


Tomorrow was supposed to be the day I get my S15 (Project Ichigo) tuned, emphasis on "supposed to." You'll see why that's so later on. But today I decided to bring the S14 out for some fun times. I wanted to compare how different the power and response was between the S14 and the S15.



I put the Gram Lights 57Cs on because I knew I was gonna slide it HARD.



First order of business, pick up my Z32 MAF from the post office.



Then I was on my way. Touring around, driving through city streets and whatnot.

I had my dinner at a super good curry place, the renowned CURRY HOUSE CoCo ICHIBANYA, then after a short drive I found myself within a parking lot near my house

I called up a friend, met up with him and told him to help me out by getting the R33 stockies from WestKyo, should I mangle the tires on these 57Cs and need those.





When he came back. YAP YAP, that was the G O ! signal. It was time to

A T T A C K






I absolutely shredded the living fuck out of the tires. And eventually I had to swap them out. Time to check: 1:47 AM.





I got the R33 stockies on...



Then after a LONG session of drifts. IT HAPPENED.




Definitely NOT good news.



It was pretty late and at that point I was pretty dazed, but from what I can remember (And from what Jack told me), I hit the parking lot metal fence. I swung around, hit my fender then proceeded spinning until my rear end hit some pole, and I stopped near another metal fence.



The next thing I knew, I was being transported/chauffeured in an S13.







Jack dropped me off at my crib. Thanks man!

:THE MORNING AFTER:


Gave Jack a call to thank him and to learn about what happened as previously mentioned. Then I asked where the car was. It was at the police station, impounded and awaiting penalty fees.

So without skipping a beat I hopped right into my FC1 and floored it.



I went into the station and asked for the car. After paying 400,000 yen (V$4,000) in infractions (accident caused by reckless imprudence, destruction of private property, license plate not visible, shaken expired). I was out to claim it and have it towed back to WestKyo.

My heart is broken. I don't know what to feel.












The damage was far more than I expected. I don't even know what the extent of it is. Doing that drift and that epic (apparently unepic) fun time was a HUGE mistake. Now I remember, I was getting a feel for the RB25DET, pretty much going hard on it and flooring it, then I saw a dog cross right in front of me. As my instinct was to dodge, I turned the wheel, that's what caused me to spin and eventually crash the car. But full disclosure I take full custody for what's happened. I really shouldn't have been drifting at a parking lot with limited lighting at 3 in the morning. Lesson learned, but it's sad the car had to go through something traumatic before I could learn my lesson.

With all of that said, I tried firing it up but it would only sputter and then die shortly after. I had it towed to WestKyo.







I don't know what to do or what to even say at this point. But either way, Project S14 is out of commission, for now? For a while? Forever? Who knows. But I guess I'll be focusing on other things for now. F.

He needs some milk. Jokes aside this thing is fucked up, but I am glad you are okay as you could have destroyed your spine going backwards into that railing.. Eh, we live and we learn, no matter how much we love our cars, they can be replaced, but we can't replace you. It might be interesting to inspect this car in person, because from what I am seeing now it might be fixable, it won't be as beautiful as it was but its possible unless gaps formed around the doors, then chassis is done. Eh, setback is setup for comeback, we gonna help you man. ♥

Dude I still have whiplash from the incident, been getting some therapy lately but thank GOD it's nothing serious. I don't how I'll be able to bring the car to you, I guess I can source a tow truck but that probably won't be soon. I could bring it back exactly to its former stock body glory, but at that point it might just get its ass handed to it again (literally). If ever I push through with the car, overfenders are the planned route. No door running board damage thankfully, although I need to investigate more. Comeback soon! I hope I get the urge (and cash) to start bringing it back to life.

# Soju : Ouch, that is a big F for the S14. I hope you recover yourself as soon as possible.

Big F indeed. And yeah I've been recovering well so far

# Phonexius : Oh man sad to see the S14 crash, glad that you are fine without any missing parts.....If you need some help hit me up man I can come to jap help you rebuild the rear ofc if its not wrapped.Stay safe safety first

I'll be sure to do that. The 200SX we have arriving soon should be a good distraction to keep my mind off of the travesty I've done

# DEADMANE : That sucks you crashed that thing man. But hey gives you an excuse to rebuild it! Love your daily on TE's :)

It sucks BIG TIME :( . Yeah a rebuild is in the books but nothing is set in stone. And thanks! TEs look good just about everything. :)

# Nightrunner : Oh my god , what happened to the S14 ! I´m so sorry for your car m8 , but you are fine , nothing happened to you and thats what matter the most !

Correct, at least I'm safe. Man I wanna make it up to the S14 though

THAT'S HOW MAFIA WORKS


Hey everyone! Thank you guys for sympathizing with me. It's a very tough time (A nigga going through a lot rn ngl), and you guys are what get me to wake up in the morning, it's that support that keeps the fire in me burning. I know nothing's gonna happen if I just lay in bed, skipping work all because of a mistake I did at 3AM one night, something shitty, something very unbecoming of a lawyer. And I've already started on righting my wrongs.

One of those wrongs is finally getting my S15 tuned. Or at least, trying to.



So I went ALL the way to Tochigi Prefecture in an untuned S15, with my Z32 MAF in the back seat, in hopes of getting my S15 up to PEAK PERFORMANCE.

When I arrived, the boys at Koguchi Power accommodated me very well. Within a few minutes I was on queue to dyno.



The only problem was, well, I was too low.



So I had to take my front bumper off to get it up the ramp.



After that point we strapped it up and checked everything for leaks and discrepancies. No problems, so the tuner plugged his computer into the ECU, and started messing with the GReddy PROfec E-01 Boost Controller I had on the car. It turns out, a puny boost controller was not enough to counter the intense AFRs the car was throwing, even less when the Z32 Mass Air Flow Sensor was installed. So they stuck a special programmable chip into the ECU board, and went on with their business.

Soon enough, the car was SCREAMING, and it certainly sounded like some serious power was being made. But like life itself, things don't always go as planned, and over here that's no exception.



See that smoke? That's from the clutch slipping. The stock SR20DET S15 clutch could only take 270 wheel before giving out, hence the smoke. Sadly, because of this, I wasn't able to realize the full capabilities of the turbo and the engine.



So for now, I have to rely on a semi-dyno tune, coupled with a road tune. Don't worry, once I get everything set, it'll be back on the dyno before you know it. At this point I need a fully programmable ECU (looking for a PowerFC unit so if anyone has leads let me know!) to get the car tuned accurately.

But yeah this will do fine for now. I paid the tuning fee (10,000 yen (V$100)) and then went off to give it a shakedown of my own.



YES THIS WILL DO VERY FINE IN THE MEANTIME.



I already feel the BUMP in power and force. There's an obvious increase just from that chip tune! Getting the rear A048s to break traction is a BREEZE now.



Slides GOOD.

Now while I was sliding the car around, flooring it and getting a feel for everything, I found to have been experiencing some rubbing issues within the fender liners and the arches. Too many Gs this time that the suspension actually reaches that level of compression already I'm guessing.

At that point, it was either change tires, or raise the height. You probably already know that I love my LOW. So I went and proceeded with the former.

Back over at WestKyo, I took the R34 stockies off to get them fitted with some new thinner, narrower rubber that'll clear the wells. But at that point I remembered that I still had some Advan TC3s awaiting a car to be on, these were off my FC1 Civic, and that was pretty low and cleared the wells, these have stretched tires so rubbing shouldn't be an issue. The R34s will be going back on when I feel like it, I'm switching it up a bit with this setup.

I thought I could make do with putting the wheels on without the spacers off the R34 stockies, but apparently not, at least, not with style.



That epic offset game though. So I took the wheels off again and re-added the spacers. This time, I managed to nail the look.









This look is growing on me FAST. I honestly think I'm getting increasingly close to the NOB Vertex T&E S15 that Yuan (BigSmoke) brought up a while back.

Oh yeah I forgot to add. I bought 2 cars, sight unseen on the internet. Phonexius is shipping the cars to Japan right now as we speak! V$4,500 from Bosnia!

The car itself? It's a secret, for now. :)) :bananajump:

Also, lemme know when the clutch is dialed and you're going back to Tochigi. Supra needs a dyno run just for power deets so might as well tag along together right?

DAMAGE CONTROL!


First thing's first. I had the S14 towed to a shop with a lift the other day. Yesterday morning I dropped by on the way to work to assess the damage.











Here's what the master mechanic and I have gathered so far:
- Front left tie rod bent -
- Steering rack bent -
- Front left control arm snapped -
- Rear inner wall breached and crumpled -
- Rear underchassis area crumpled -
- Rear right shock tower crumpled -
- Rear right upper control arm bent -
- Rear right lower control arm missing -
- Rear right coilover blown and dead -
- Rear left lower control arm destroyed -
- Exhaust hanger, exhaust system crumpled -
- Spare tire area unrecognizable -
- Trunk mounts unsalvagable -
- Trunk shell damaged and unsalvageble -
- Front left wiring harness torn -
- Rear light harness missing -
- Rear subframe pushed forward 4cm -
- Transmission oil pan cracked -
- Engine oil pan smashed -
- Side mount intercooler crumpled -
- Fuel pump not priming/not functional -
- Rear right toe arm bent -
- Rear right knuckle crumpled -
- Rear right brake disc warped -
- Rear right caliper damaged and bent -
- Rear right wheel bent (inner barrel) -
- Front left side of engine bay slightly out of alignment -
- Hopes and dreams fucked -
- Life has no meaning -
- End my suffering -
- Fixable, but will take some time -

So yeah, it's pretty much FUCKED. But I'm not ready to let this car go. I fucking disgraced it, and it's my job to correct my mistake. I have to do this car justice no matter what, I'm sure it's what Muzahid (Niatross) and Koro-san would've wanted. Speaking of which, I broke the news to him and he was over-the-moon FURIOUS at what happened. He's glad I'm okay but called me all sorts of shitty things, and to be honest, I can't blame him. But now the pressure to rebuild this thing is even higher now, and rebuild this thing I'll definitely do. Just you wait.

In other news


I test fitted the Gram Lights 57Cs on the S2K, not too shabby me thinks. Offset may be a tad low which is causing the poke but that should be sorted out with some camber. Might actually put em on the car when it's low and deserving. In its current form it drives FANTASTIC though. I can never get enough of that 9K RPM SCREAMMMMM. I'd never give my car up for an AP2 tbh, more so when I've got a damn Type V.





In other news x2


I took the S15 apart again. Yes I know what you're gonna say, I'm making my own life harder, I'm playing myself blah blah, hear me out. I'm getting my internals forged and balanced so that I can take FULL advantage of that turbo, all that money wasted on an engine with unused potential would surely be a dumb thing to do anyway right? So yeah.





OH yeah I got a new clutch on the way from Up Garage at their Higashimurayama branch in Tokyo. I found their listing for an Ogura Racing Enhanced Metal Single Clutch ORC - 409D - 02N5 for 71,900 yen (V$719). Should be coming in soon.





AAAAAAAND the engine is out! Next step is to take it apart and get the components machined or replaced. More on that soon!

Oh and another thing, this is the last time you'll see the S15 rolling (or sitting) on TC3s, because I just sold them to Dominik (NightRunner) yesterday night for V$1,350. Check out his cool JZA80 build! He just got some sick new Ridox Aero from it, inspired by Soju's current aero setup. Ngl I really want a Supra and an R34 now, been seing a lot of them around the forums lately. But eh, we'll see what the future holds. (Maybe I alraedy bought one, OR MAYBE I ALREADY HAVE A JZA80 AND A BNR34 HIDDEN SOMEWHERE H I H E)

Finances:
V$74,814 - V$719 + V$1,350 + V$3,400 (Ongoing Court Hearing, Plantiff Attorney Services Payment Received) = V$78,845

Ogura clutch is also a wise choice, it's recommended for drifts :D
When she finished the ops it'll be a monster on touge roads! ;)

And oh, since you've sold the TC3s, are you going to buy another or are you going to buy different wheels?
Also those Grams fit the S2K well so DO IT! :D

New Vehicular Unit, Who Could This Person Be By Any Chance?

(WARNING: A ton of pics!)


Hey everyone! Remember that car Phonexius sourced out for me? He actually sourced 2! One of which was claimed by Muzahid (Niatross), you'll find out a little later when he updates his thread. Anyway, I purchased both cars sight unseen off the Bosnian internet for V$2,300. Though Ben (Phonexius) assured me that the car was exactly what was in the pictures.

Following the refreshing touge run I did with Yuan (BigSmoke) and Muzahid (Niatross) (If you haven't checked out BigSmoke's update yet, go do that first, GOGOGOGO!), I got my rest. Then one fine day at work as I was packing up, I was informed that my "shipment" had arrived. Got a good night's sleep then woke up first thing in the morning and headed to the docks.



When I arrived, I looked for the shipment and found out that only one car had arrived, and the other container was still awaiting clearance. Fortunately for me (Unfortunately for Muzahid), mine was the one that landed ashore.



After signing the papers and documents, I had the car mounted to a truck and brought to the garage.







Fast Forward To The Day After


After work, I headed straight to the shop, where the truck that had my car was waiting.



1989 Nissan 200SX 1.8 Turbo (RS13U)







Genuine European 200SX goodness. There's not a whole lot I can say about this car other than it was a project that was left stagnant for a long while. Paint is pretty worn but I have high hopes that a good detail job will resurrect the shine.







The European 200SX RS13U had a number of parts as standard that were Nismo optional parts in Japan. A water/oil heat exchanger, a differential oil cooler and an extended finned rear cover holding 0.6L more oil (even on models with an open differential), aluminum radiator, and a lower 3.916 final drive ratio (JDM ones had a 4.083 ratio) which was required as the RS13U 200SX had no speed limiter and any car in Europe could visit West Germany where on the Autobahn it could legally be held at very high speeds for a sustained length of time (Japanese cars are fitted with a 180 km/h/110 mph speed limiter).









Under the hood is, well, nothing actually. But everything else has been sorted out so any engine would be ready to drop in. Wiring, brake lines, have all been sorted out.









Interior is pretty fresh, but smells musty and is pretty dusty. Seats and trims still have no tears! And I'm told the factory 200+km/h cluster works perfectly. It even came with a European battery stored in the trunk, ready to be used (No the battery hasn't been relocated, it's just where the owner put the battery in for storage).









Ah yes there's the CA18DET. Albeit missing some components. Afaik the rest should be coming in along with the other car so when that arrives I can piece this thing back together >:)

The FS5W71C gearboxes in these Euro CAs had different ratios from other S13s. A key change is the layshaft gear which was changed from 22/31 to 21/32, thus running the layshaft slower and at higher torque. This gearbox is considered weaker than other S13/S14 gearboxes, but if need be, the front of the SR20DET gearbox with the bell housing can be removed and a CA18DET bell housing can be fitted to allow the gearboxes to be swapped.

Oh yeah, small ichigo update. The SR20DET has been dropped off at Koguchi Power, where they're gonna balance EVERYTHING, and replace the necessary components with forged units. Head and manifolds are getting polished as well for optimized air flow. Can't wait to get it back!

I also borrowed Muzahid's extra spare of SSR Type-Cs for my car to stand on while sitting at the shop, awaiting its reborn beast of a heart. I'm surprised they fit pretty well specs-wise.

Actually the 200SX looks better than I expected!

I wish I could source some EU parts for the 180SX for some OEM+ points

Well Phonexius is sure can spot a potential car easily, that's quite a skill! :D
Also, I can't wait to see both S13s standing out in public in a sea of JDM S13s ;)

I really have a good feel that the S15 will knock the door of 350-400 BHP playground ;)

Also I SPOTTED SOMETHING ELSE THERE HIHE
