STATUS UPDATE LEZGO




Following Yuan (BigSmoke)'s migration back to Tokyo (check his RP thread out, check out his Evo 3 build and his latest acquisition, an S15!), I've been pursuing a very hard decision. This actually came out as a bit of a surprise, but I've been negotiating the sale on my FC1 for quite a while now (since after the S14 crash). But now the time has come to end my ownership of FC1, and the time has also come for the FC1 to continue its life under a new owner.









There's not much to say about this car. It's been tastefully modified with nothing but the best of goodies, no shortcuts were taken here. Simple formula, simple results, that's just how it works. Bearing in mind all of the mods I installed, we agreed on V$18,000.







Farewell Civic, it was nice knowing you. I had fun, some real good times. And owning you is something I will never regret.

Now, moving on...


NEW ACQUISITION




Marc and I had a talk and I ended up buying his S13 to help him out. Funnily enough, this car never left the K-S team. It was first found by Muzahid (Niatross) who built it up into the the very fun drifty boi it is right now. And eventually it ended up in Marc's (Macaron_moon's) hands. And then I got a hold of it.



Car is pretty shipshape with a clean shell, no bog or anything. A genuine Works 9 Kit (which Marc mangled the front bumper, more on that later). Interior is stripped with some Blitz gauges, a hydro e-brake system, a Bride driver seat and a half-cage. Under the hood is an SR20DET with a GReddy TD06SH-25G turbo, a GReddy Oil Catch Can, some custom plumbing, custom exhaust manifold, and a blown 4th cylinder.



Last month I compensated him handsomely, with V$11,000, to pay for the car and to help him out with his CZ4A build and his new car purchase ( H U E ). Also last month, I had the front bumper sent to a body shop, I had it refibered, and then repainted to the car's shade of red. Looks new!

Can't wait to see how this car transforms because I myself don't know the plan for it yet. For now it'll probably stay that way. I gotta work on getting it running.

Moving on again, we have something UNEXPECTED


NEW ACQUISITION x2


At this point and in this particular situation (I'm pertaining to the S14 here), I have realized that it simply isn't worth the time and effort to restore and reshape the current shell to its original figure. Therefore I have decided to sell the S14. JUST KIDDING. OKAY I WAS JOKING. CHILL.



I scoured through the internet classifieds to find the perfect donor car. Something within the reasonably realistic budget, but packs a lot for what it's worth. Something kept with care, a vehicle I'll want to handle gently and with utmost safety. And alas, I came across this gorgeous vehicular unit.

I went to see it in person right away. It was right within my expectations, higher even, considering the ad only had one image. Everything was just what I was looking for in a project.





As the ad listing denotes, this my friends, is a 1997 Nissan Silvia Q's Aero SE.

1997 was the last year they offered the 4 lug on the S14. This car is pristine. With a mere 107,259 km traveled, it's in overall decent condition. One owner, who cared for it all its life. He didn't even modify it!





Trunk and interior are all intact along with their respective carpeting, even the stereo is factory, works great too! This car was perfect because it was a manual, much more than just a bonus.





Under the hood is a bone stock SR20DE 2.0L Naturally Aspirated Inline 4 Cylinder. It's even got the factory airbox! The only modified thing I've seen is a Koyo Aluminum Radiator in place of the factory plastic one. SR20DE manual. WHAT A TREAT! This is the PERFECT donor car for the S14 rebuild. I'll be slowly swapping over the good parts from the wrecked one to this car. Probably starting with the small goodies like the interior stuff (except the cage which has been welded in). A 5 lug swap is in the books for sure though. But for 498k yen (V$4,980), I can't possibly go wrong with this car. I'm SUPER eager to get the build process going.

And finally


What Is The Definition Of Stock? Cuz This Ain't It Chief


With the FC1 gone I've been dailying my AP1 S2000 these past few days. And all in good time, my parts have arrived!



I got myself Bilstein B14 PSS Coilovers for V$1,248.66 on FRSport



And I got a GP Sports EXAS EVO muffler for V$199 on UpGarage via Crooober.

After passing sha ken and obtaining my registration plates, I went straight to the mods. This was the car for a while, sitting on stockies with the coilovers installed at max low, and with the muffler on.







Then yesterday morning I went to the shop to test fit the Gram Lights 57Cs again.





Fronts are poking out a bit too much



But the rears are PERFECT with the current camber setting.



I mounted all 4 of them and then proceeded to Benny's to get my alignment done for the fronts. I had them dial in some more front camber to keep the poke flush on all 4 sides.

Then it was finished.









One night out, a few VTEC pulls here and there, I was in my element. A car that looks good, sounds AMAZING, and performs like a WINNER. All of these factors have cemented the fact that I bought the right car.

B L I S S






That's all for now, thanks for reading. Next time I'll update on my S15 (Project Ichigo). I hope to start progress on the S14 soon and eventually the S13.

Finances:
V$83,285 + V$940 (Weekly Paycheck x1) + V$18,000 - V$1,248.66 - V$199 - V$4,980 = V$95,797.34

Yep, time to say goodbye to one of the most impressive Civic ever. Nevertheless, you did a very good job on it, and I'm sure it'll bring more smiles to the world as it goes :)

At this point that S13 should be crowned as K-S's training car man :)) (Not demo car yet since it's not carrying K-S logo)

And woah MT S14 for cheap? That's quite a deal man! Also so you be saying you're going to port everything from the crashed S14 to the new one?

And the S2K now is ready to get even more girls yooooo :D

Added 38 minutes later:

RESURRECTION


A lot of you know I've been driving the S2K for a while now, due to my complete lack of a modern luxurious daily. But, little do you guys know, I've been Marc's (Macaron_moon's) chauffeur for quite a while now. The usual routine is he drives his GRB STI to STI HQ, with me riding shotgun. Afterwards, he gets off at STI HQ and I go about my business in his car. Then after work hours I pick him up, and we visit HKS HQ to check up on the ULTRA SPECIAL 4B11T he's building. (I would say check out his thread but there aren't any updates yet sooooo)

Anyway. Yesterday was no regular day, as I had received a special call from Koguchi Power letting me know my SR22DET is finished :)

So without hesitation I called up my buddy Jack. I wired him the 780,000 yen (V$7,800) cash I was billed for the engine serivces, and with his connections, they got the engine delivered to Pudsey, the location I chose to pick the engine up from (for reasons you will find out as you read on).



Then I LAUNCHED the car out of Pudsey, and soon I was on the expressway, BLASTING THROUGH WITH NO LICENSE PLATES. I'm still waiting on the plates from the DMV so I have a certificate on the dashboard but anyway



After a quick stop at the resident UCC shop for a cup of joe, I ended my journey by arriving at Kami-Sama HQ



After that I unloaded the engine with some help from Muzahid (Niatross) and Marc.

After finishing my coffee I went straight to the business.



Got the brand new shop engine hoist in to mount my engine (shout-out to Japonic for helping me source out a good quality one!)



Ever so meticulously maintaining my critical trajectory in mounting the engine



VOILA! Shortly after I took the headlights off (to make installing the engine peripherals easier), and called it a night.

The morning after, I rushed to the garage to continue where I left off.



Intake manifold, exhaust manifold with turbo, installed!



Clutch fan, Koyo radiator and Samco hoes (oops, meant hose HUEHUEHUE), installed!



Eventually I had all the plumbing in there. I finally stuffed the battery in, wired the harnesses in, and gave it a crank.



LITERALLY BRAND NEW CONDITION. One click of the starter and I heard the GLORIOUS SR22 sputter into life. A very aggressive idle followed it. The car was finally alive, hopefully no more finallys haha.

RESURRECTION x2


Going back to why I had Jack deliver the engine to Pudsey, it's because of this.



Remember my wrecked S14? I've since entrusted the boys at Pudsey to take it ALL apart, and do their magic. And magic they surely did. It's literally as if nothing happened! They actually went through the trouble of sourcing a 2 written-off S14s to build my car up! A white S14 J's for the front end, and a black S14 K's rear end. And after a LOT of aligning, a lot of primer, and a lot of other magical shit, the shell was gloriously back in shape. Well worth the V$1,500 I paid for their body repair package.

I'm gonna stop yapping, enjoy these pictures!













I should have more updates soon! A LOT of good things have been happening lately, it's awesome! Because of these things, I took an indefinite leave from work, but I own a share of the company so it's all gucci, I have associates who can take care of business, but for now my accounting and law income have come to a halt, apart from my small weekly commissions.

And here are some other small things that have happened:
- I bought Yuan (BigSmoke)'s S15 SR20DE + E-4AT for V$500
- I donated my non-running RB25DET + transmission for his ongoing S15 project, good luck dude!
- I sold my Weds Cerberus IIs to Dominik (NightRunner) to put on his V35 Skyline for V$800, can't wait to see them on the car man, gonna look sick for sure!

Yeah that's all for now. Thanks for reading family :)

Finances:
V$95,797.34 + V$940 (Weekly Paycheck x1) + V$800 - V$7,800 - V$500 - V$1,500 = V$87,737.34

Hmmmmm I wonder what Marc is currently cooking for his 4B11T.......working on his car was a huge experience for me, and I really love his Evo. I'm expecting huge-ass turbos and stroker kits, similar to mine (except my turbo isn't so big) :D

Glad to see Ichigo coming back to life again!I'm really expecting something big now.......*cough* better power figures *cough*
The VS Pudsey guys really did a noble job, you should treat them to a dinner once the restoration has been done. Their effort was simply out of this world man! :o

Also, thank you for buying my SR and kindly giving me your RB :bow:
I really, really owe you a huge dinner with some glass of coffees and boozes for this :cheers:

You know how HKS does their cars and engines. I'm just letting them bore the block, put all the stroker, the valcom cams (274 both Int and Ext) and break in the engine. I'll add the turbo kit and other goodies later ;)

LET'S GET THIS BREAD (FINALLY)


Hey everyone!! It's been quite some time since my last update mostly due to life stuff going on (OORP: studies, IRL car projects, making SLRR mods etc.) but now I'm back to at least let you guys know where I stand in the present time.

S15 PROGRESSO NO MORE DEPRESSO




Last time you guys saw the S15 was when it was still like this. I put the car back together last month and I have pictures covering some of the processes done.



This was when it was already put back together.





Same story for these 2.



Then about 4 days after I ordered a Bride ZETA III PLUS from Nengun Performance for 163,269 yen (V$1,633) to fit onto the car. This should stop me from dacing around in the car under serious g-forces.

Now you might wonder why the doors were completely off the car during seat installation. Well, EASY.



That's because I did a rad scissor door conversion! I wanted to add some flare to the car so I went with VStanced Garage's scissor door kit for V$750. Car was in the shop for a week and a half.



The results are definitely a big positive though.

And then 2 days after, I had reached 1,600 kms which meant DYNO TIME!





I had the car set on the dyno to begin testing. BUT for some reason power output would peak at 347whp due to some tire slip (YES I WAS BREAKING TRACTION ON THE DYNO). Therefore I had to come back the next day with a better set of tires, and so I did.



The grand numbers?

HMMMMMMMMMM
I

GOT

THE

RESULTS

AND

THE

OUTPUT

OF

THIS

VEHICULAR

UNIT

IS



I REPEAT, 558WHP AND 542WTQ TUNED AT 1.8BAR OF BOOST!!


So YEAH. That's that taken care of, I was OVER THE MOON happy with the power output and I've been told I can beat on this car and not blow it up!

And SO I drove it back to WestKyo happy as BEANS. But as I was nearing the shop, I got a call informing me that my AERO KIT HAS ARRIVED.

SOOOOOO...



Goodbye OEM Kit



I'll miss you. I fitted the new kit in the morning of last week, a day after the tune.





URAS GT!! After everything is fitted correctly I'll be getting the front and rear arches pumped to accommodate wider wheels & tires. But OH MAN THE POTENTIAL, I CAN ALREADY SEE HOW GOOD IT'S GONNA LOOK.



AAAAND finally a rad KEY'S RACING steering wheel. The Uras GT set me back 191,000 yen (V$1,910) while the KEY'S wheel was 29,100 yen (V$291)

Moving on to the S14 I crashed






They just finished putting the bodywork back together and it's now just ready for paint!! I haven't fully decided on the color yet but my money is on midnight purple, or the original color this car came with (I forgot it but I'll recheck the chassis plate and cross-reference the exact name on Google)

And if you'll notice this car is sporting 4 lug hubs, as everything from the recent S14 Q's Aero SE I bought was swapped over to this car.

WHICH MEANS





ALL the good stuff from that S14 has been transferred over to this one. Namely the Bride R-Style seats, the K's 5 stud suspension, Nismo bushings and what not. I have to say, this S14 is probably my favorite looking car I've owned yet. And the best part is that it can be used as a daily!

SPEAKING OF DAILY, HERE'S MY BABY!






If you read Muzahid's (Niatross') last update, you'd very well know that I had acquired his Ibis White 2009 Audi A5 2.0TFSI quattro 8T for V$12,000. Since then, I've done a few things to it.





I removed the 5x114 adapters to restore the 5x112 PCD of this car, but I can put them back anytime. The car is now sitting on OEM 8T Audi S5 wheels I bought off of an older gentleman on eBay Japan for 135,000 yen (V$1,350). I took the Bride Brix I seats out and sourced some OEM A5 seats for 100,000 yen (V$1,000) a piece, used; now I have my power seats back, with motorized lumbar support! Ah yes the comfort of German engineering. I've also replaced the muffler tips to those of an 8T S5 for 50,000 yen (V$500). Don't worry, the full AWE Full Exhaust System is still installed on the car, I just changed the tips to some more throaty ones. But yeah so far nothing has been changed. It still has the APR Stage 2 Chip and the APR Carbonio Intake.



SO far I have had no regrets owning it. Power delivery is great, it's pretty reliable (starts up everytime and everything works fine), and it gets subliminal gas mileage! I really wanna keep this car as a daily, so every mod I'll do to it will definitely not be over the top.

#Suffercar 1






The PS13 currently has a non-existent engine. I bought Yuan's (BigSmoke's) S15 SR20DE for the internals. SR20DEs have a higher compression ratio of 9.5:1, vs 8.5:1 on SR20DETs. So I'm gonna swap those into the blown pistons of the PS13's former engine. Hoping to get it running soon! It's also missing thw whole front end at the moment because I swapped my front end for Muzahid's pop-up 200SX front end. YUP, you read that right, this car will be a Onevia!

And last but certainly not the least (probably is right now though)




My RS13U 200SX. So far nothing has really happened to it apart from the fact that the CA18DET is actually sitting INSIDE the bay now instead of beside it.

Yeah so that's all for today's update, I'll be doing another one shortly, because I haven't talked about my S2000 yet (I can tell you, it was NOT good.) At that point I'll tell you more about the bad turnouts that have happened recently. Stay tuned!

WOAH THE STRAWBERRY HAS TURNED INTO A MONSTER!! :O
Dude I can't believe that figure myself as well, that's even bigger than I expected! And uh, even more than my Silver Queen h i h e :))

Also I love that OEM kit but those URAS kits are just peak aggressiveness :-X
I'm not even sure if Ichigo is going to stay a street car or turning herself into a track car at this point....both options are lovely tho! :))

I'm also glad to see S14 slowly coming back to life, as well as you're enjoying Muza's A5 and finally my SR20DE found a new home :D
Looking forward to see the final result of the Onevia conversion! :D

I'm concerned about your S2K though, what has happened to it after our huge meeting?

The S15 looks absolutely crazy, can't wait to see how it turns out, as well as the Onevia conversion. Scissor doors undoubtedly make everything better.

Also please give that 200SX some love lol

HELL YIZZ, I never expected it to be THAT potent, Niatross watch out HUEHUE

And YES the OEM Kits just weren't enough to compliment the car's power, and Uras GT has always been B A E

I got the car with a CA, and I want everything to be period correct that's why I'm pushing through with it. Thanks man!

BAD NEWS


Sooooo continuing my last thread update, things haven't been going that well with life. I was scammed 2,100,000 yen (V$21,000) into buying a MK7 Golf GTI, but apparently the car wasn't even in Japan, it was in the UK and the pictures of the local Golf GTI and the car I took a look at in person is actually already owned by someone else. NICE.

And back in the Philippines, my family's been going through some tough times so I had to remit V$20,000 over there in order to help them recover. Their brand new 2018 Subaru Forester 2.0XT Touring would've been repossessed if I hadn't sent the cash, and that's the shallow part, they would have the lost their new house!

Still, could be worse. Anyway let's forget about that hoo ha and get straight into my AP1 S2000 Type V!





This is how it looked last month. Since I got the Audi A5 to daily, I could go BALLS out on this car, and I already started on that.





I snagged myself a used AP2 S2000 front bumper for V$750!

But the more obvious (and more eye-catching) change is the WHEELS! It (was) sitting on Volk Racing RE30s! 18x9 +35 front and 18x9.5 +22 on the back. All wrapped in Kumho Ecsta PS91s, measuring 235/40/R18s up front and 245/35/18s out back.





Unfortunately it didn't stay like this for a long. On a Friday night that week, I went to have dinner with a girl (very cute, very intelligent, and has an AMAZING personality). Anyways, I parked my car S2000 on the side of a road that we decently lit. After our almost 2 hour date, I came back outside, only to find out from the police investigating the area that my S2000 had been stolen.

STOLEN !! 冗談じゃない!!!

I WAS called up 3 days ago to find out that it was RETRIEVED at Tsukuba!! I received pictures and I've been told they're transporting it back to Mie as we speak. When I saw the pictures though, OH MAMA.





WELP. Just my luck. I'm not gonna lie, it's turning into real depresso hours right now. But hey, I have to keep my head up and move on. Keep myself busy and strive to get the girl (who was concerned for me when I lost the S2000, she's SO GREAT.)

I guess Project AP1 will be out of commission for now. Stay tuned for some progress on the PS13 and RS13U, as well as both S14s. I don't know, if I have enough money I might mod up the A5 too.

Thanks for reading.

Added 46 minutes later:

Thanks for the kind words guys. I'll get through it all soon.

EPIC BUT ALSO UNEPIC YES


GOOD NEWS! Thanks to my insurance, I have been reimbursed V$15,000 from the V$20,000 I paid for the bogus sale of a MK7 Golf GTI.

Finally got the AP1 back from the police. Uhhhhh. Let's just say it's time I begun some REAL mods on this thing.









Lmao it looks like a base model S2000, similar to the 86 RC or Honda's own EK9 N1.

Still has the Bilstein coilovers from before. But the RE30s are gone, epic steely time. Missing the AP2 front bumper, and the pristine rear bumper has been reaplced with a beat one. Badges, gone. Type V spoiler lip, gone.



Engine is missing the OEM air box, I'm glad that's the only thing missing.



Missing a seat. WEW.





Everything else seems to be in order from what I've investigated. Still very salvageable, so I'm keeping this baby.

YASSSS PAINTY BOI


Checked up on the S14, she's in the paint booth ready to get sprayed!





OOF is all I can say


Last week I took the A5 out to buy some groceries. Went to the nearest Costco, and parked close to a 2015 Subaru WRX STI Type S (VAB).







Took my sweet time buying some instant coffee, beef, and other stuff like asparagus. Also dashed through the cereal aisle to pick up some Cap'N Crunch and some milk. I was getting ready to line-up at the cashier when suddenly... I heard an announcement that said whoever the owner is of the Silver Audi should please come out for an emergency. I leave my groceries in the store (I came back for them later), and my eyes witnessed this:











An elder man in an E92 330i lost control on the street, jumped through the curb over the grass, dashing through the parking lot, eventually hitting my A5. Police suspect driver error, but the elder man says the electronics for the throttle had malfunctioned. Regardless, the A5 was sent to a trusted Audi-accredited body shop for some treatment. I had a plan ready just in case this type of thing would happen. Safe to say, I'm pushing through with said plan.

Finally some real good news


I got around to putting the CA18DET in the RS13U back together.











S15 sitting pretty patiently waiting for paint. Anyway, put everything back, wired the necessary harnesses and started the car.

1 CLICK START SUCCESS!

The owner wasn't lying, CA18DET was just overhauled and it sure ran like it was. No visible smoke, that's how great it's running! No black carbon deposits and stuff. YEEEEET





I BIT THE BAIT


I also got myself a new vehicle!



Introducing, 2012 Subaru BRZ S 6MT (ZC6) in Crystal White Pearl! This being what most people call the modern day S13 for its extreme tunability, widespread support, and great formula of a RWD, 2 seater, 4 cylinder sports car, I just HAD to get my hands on one.

Also I made a friend at a shop I dropped the Audi off to. Name's Saki, and he drives this beauty right here.





A real fan of US/Canadian Street Culture, and surprisingly, a follower of NightRunner International and NightRide CA! Pretty cool tbh. But yeah, the goal for this car is to make a real cool street car that's still drivable as an alternative daily.



Paint is fresh and shiny!







Underneath the aluminum hood reveals a completely bone stock well taken care of FA20D with D-4S technology, utilizing both direct and port fuel injection to optimize combustion potential. This 2.0L Boxer 4 Unit produces 200PS (197hp) and 205Nm (151lb-ft).







Interior is pristine as well, non-smoking car, usually only driven short distances. Never tracked. Has about 64,800 km on the clock as of this writing.













Price? I was able to massage it down to V$16,000. First impressions? Everything I expected and more. Power is JUST fine for what it is. I floor it, it gives, not much, but enough to pull. Handles GREAT even with the Prius tires, and the back end has a tendency to swing out when the Torsen LSD locks the raer wheels. It's got some body roll but it's manageable, nothing some good aftermarket coilovers won't fix. The big ++ with this car is that compared to an S13 or AE86, this is a very civilized car, one you can comfortably use for your day-to-day commute and still have fun at the end of the day. I'm PUMPED to modify this thing!

That's all for this time. Thanks for reading!

Glad you kept S2000, while I was strolling the online for new the car for myself, I discovered parts for sales, I noticed all your "missing" parts are the same seller? I was unsure if they are your parts or not.
Temporary quitted, return soon!

YEET


Sorta kinda resurrected the S2K. Put the SSR Type-Cs on, as well as the Bride Zeta IIIs I got off the A5. Managed to cop the missing badges, and corner lights from a friend. I also found a mint AP2 front bumper in white, as well as a Type V Lip Spoiler, also in white. Total cost for everything was 65,000 yen (V$650).







As for the PS13, I got the hatch front end on from Muzahid (Niatross) RS13U. Also removed the livery for a cleaner look, I think I know what decision I'm gonna go on this car. I also sold the Works 9 Kit for V$750 to some dude in the USA. It's currently sitting on the S14 4 lugs because I used hubs and BBKs on the other car.

Mechanical-wise. I started it up yesterday after I put the engine back together with the S15 SR20DE internals. OH YES BIG YAP THIS IS VERY GOOD YEP







Now the RS13U! Finally brought it out for some sun, feeling good so far! Stock suspension feels really wonky though, and the all the bushes are probably dead because I could probably get more feedback from a marshmallow.





Although before I mess with the car I planned on getting it detailed first. Luckily, my schedule for that day was clear. And I thought, why not pick up the S14 while I'm there?

Okay so these are the photos of the RS13U the last time I visited Pudsey to pick up the S14.





























YASSSSS. And of course, I saved the best for the last. The INFAMOUS CRASHED S14.

F R E S H - T O - D E A T H










The color your eyes are enjoying is what Nissan calls "Reddish Purple Metallic" or in the States, Deep Fuschia. Idk which one's better so I'm just gonna say Color Code LS1 (haha LS joke but srsly).







S15 quietly sleeping.









WELCOME BACK HOME S14!

Wow the 200SX's paintjob turned out better than expected! That's one less car to paint for you lol. And the S chassis that did get painted is nice too but i'm not sure if the color was a good choice cause you have 4 red S chassis now! :)) It's also good to see the S2000 slowly getting back to as it was, will that be possible for the Audi too?

Also, welcome to America!! I have loads of stuff to do with Ben but fun times are guaranteed :)

Yahey S14 back in the game and looking gorgeous! I could swear that's a concours-quality job the VS guys has done there. S2K also back in the game, and I could say the AP2 bumper and lip suits the stance setup better :D

Same for the RS13U! the detailing was a massive improvement!!
