We can get it done in as little as this Saturday, I sourced a rebuilt 13b from a FD3S. Engine has a little over 25,000 miles and a Greddy TT Kit price is V$3,800 total with shipping.

If you want we can take the Greddy Turbos off, the price will then be V$2,600.

I'll take it! Also, you don't mind if I do a instore pickup, do you? I've also spoken with hyped about featuring your garage on Speedhunters, so there's that too.

Sounds good. (Edited the last post to add an option if you wanted the turbos or not.) If you want you can come by on Saturday and the motor will be out back, just ask for Smokie/Jason, and I'll help you out.

Around V$575 for everything you specified.

Ranges from V$150 to V$1000 just depends on what you're trying to do. :)

Depends on when the car arrives, probably the day after all the work is finished, so in 2 days.

A full custom harness to fit everything from the 2J to the 36 would probably be around $375.

And we can get a full Kakimoto exhaust over from japan for around $610.

Would I be able to drop off 4 wheels once I arrive in California to have tires put on? I can't tell you what the sizes will be, I'm still shopping around.

The Monarchs: Crown Autoworks

King.

Now that's a title. Some of the most famous and important people in history have had that title in front of their name: King Arthur, King Henry VII, King Louie XIV, and Shrek. In fact, that title has blended into our modern culture today that it is still a common title in referring to power or strength. Hence, Crown Autoworks garage.

On my first visit to Crown, I felt like I was living in the pages of a Choose Your Own Adventure book. Any step I took would take me to something new and unknown, while always keeping a finger in the previous page to go back and try other new things. Do I wanna check out that R35? Do I wanna see what's under the hood of that S13? Is that KPGC110 packing more than coilovers? Is that R32 doing more than hardparking?



Crown Autoworks is a relatively new shop, with only 3 employees, counting the owner. A while back, Haku had the urge to open his own shop. So, he did. That's literally all there is to it. Later on, he recruited Smokiegun and Hyped into the Knight's Table, as I just named the group of Crown Auto employees. Hey, it's got a good ring to it!



Anyway, it's easy to imagine how disappointed I was when I came back a week later to find all the shop cars but their S13 had been out of the shop for various reasons. Still, it's a pretty interesting car on it's own. Why, according to Crown Auto's site it was born as a 1991 USDM 240sx, then later had a S13 Rocket Bunny kit placed on, a RHD swap, and an engine swap. What engine? Oh, just a 700+HP 13B, that's all.



It was awkward knowing that despite my own 13B pushing roughly 400, there was one no more than ten feet from it that was doing nearly twice that.

The term 'penis envy' comes to mind, except this time it's wankel engines instead of- Yeah, not losing my job.



The rest of this S13 is also pretty damn imposing. I don't know if it's the subtle hints of every major detail on this build gently poking from the OE lines, or if its the purple wrap this cars currently wearing, or what, but something about it sucks you in. Jeez, I'm almost writing like S13s are decent cars.



This S13's side profile only does more to tempt the viewer, this time showing more of it's abnormal lines, from the abrupt edges of its Rocket Bunny V1 Silvia front end to the gentle upward flick of the Rocket Bunny spoiler, or the cut off of the Rocket Bunny diffuser. Wow, talk about brand loyalty.

But Nick/Fox, where are the mirrors!?

Well, it turns out the left mirror got taken out by a garbage truck while it was parked outside, and it's currently either getting repaired/replaced/repainted, oh, I don't know what's going on with it. Anything can happen, this is a 13B S13!



As what could have been expected, the 'I do what I want!' tone of this build carries on to the rear, with the ever-so aggressive Rocket Bunny spoiler mated with authentic Kouki tailights, which sit above a bumperless chassis leading down to a rather hearty boso exhaust pipe and a diffuser that looks like it belongs on some 80's DTM car. In other words, the last time I saw a rear like this I had to delete my history with my left hand a while after.



Despite what most people will infer from the single manufacturer list of cars this shop owns, Crown Autoworks is actually open to all manufacturers. In fact, I got the 13B-REW that currently lives in my FC from here! The openness to all cars is evident in the shop, what not with a massive pile of panels for all sorts of different cars.



Seeing and simply knowing about amazing cars like the Crown Autoworks S13 makes me want to kick my FC into high gear. Seriously, look between my FC and the Crown Auto S13 in this picture and tell me which one looks more impressive!

All in all, Crown Autoworks, despite being new in the scene, has already produced some jaw-droppers with the added cherry on top of great service.



Hey, that's pretty good!
