Mark II + Broken SR20?




As some of you know, i bought this Mark II to be my daily, hence why i haven't done much to it, i needed a reliable car to go to work and such.
I bought a few parts to it such as a Amber Right front indicator for 20 V$ at one of the local junkyards here in Saitama(when i bought the car had a Clear indicator in the right and a Amber in the left, no idea why).
Also bought this front lip in Kazama Auto, one of the best shops around Saitama. It costed me 95V$.

aaaaaaand now to the not-so-reliable project car:


I started putting apart the SR20DE from my 180sx because i was thinking about boosting it... But... I don't think that's gonna happen. When i bought this car it had 197k miles on the swapped SR, previous owner took off the CA18. Now it has about 240k miles.

When i was putting it apart i noticed my engine block has a HUGE crack in it, which i had no idea about, kinda scary to think i used to daily drive and even took it to ebisu for a drift event... Plus the engine it self is pretty dead due to the huge mileage, my header is cracked and one of the rocker arms is as well. Also needs a new head gasket.

To be fair the time and money i would spend rebuilding this SR is more than i can afford, so i'm thinking to take this SR20DE to a junkyard and look for a SR20DET or SR20VET. My goal is to push around 350-450 hp, is more than enough so i'm gonna talk to some friends and hunt for some good deals.

Finances: 4648 - 20 (amber indicator mark II) - 95 (mark II front lip) = 4533 V$

Broken windows ft. Bride Low Max



You know those days when everything you do turns out wrong?
I fucking broke my hatch window. How did it happen? Well i pulled the 180sx out of the garage (it's a rolling shell pretty much, SR20 is out as well as my exhaust and transmission) and parked it in the street. Some kids were playing football and the ball hit my windshield... Since this car is still street legal and insured i managed to get the money to cover the damage. And since removing the window of the hatch is hard as fuck i decided to go to the junkyard for a new one!


And here it is, my new hatch, that is not blue X-( ffs this car looks like a rainbow, i need to get it painted. But anyway, the hatch costed me 200 V$. it was in a totaled 180sx kouki, used to be a drift car but took a nasty hit.
So i got the hatch in my 180 and bolted the wing back on. And if you look at my window you can spot 2 things. A shitload of stickers that i've been collecting for a while, i'm a huge fan of drift slaps. And the other is my new Bride Low Max Seats that i picked up from Yahoo auctions jp for the cost of 800 V$ and they have a safety rated harness on both, better shot of them:


Well here they are, looking fly af, atm i'm on the hunt for a SR20DET and i'm gonna try to get the car painted this week, since my boss at NADA engeneering opened the paintbooth a few weeks back and he is a certified painter, also it ends up being cheaper than going to a different shop. And also since today is monday that means PAYDAY!!!! so + 655V$ to spend on stuff i don't really need :))

Finances: 4533 - 200 (hatch) - 800 (BRIDE seats) + 655 (paycheck) = 4188

SR20DET life



The search is over! I found this SR20DET Blacktop for sale at yahoo auctions, in Tokyo (40km drive). It doesn't really have much done to it other than a Mishimoto radiator, Koyorad intercooler, Greddy Manifold and Greddy TD06-25g turbo and Apexi Power FC ECU. It's dyno'd to 397hp, which is perfect, not too much, not too slow and can be both track car and street car. Total cost of the SR20 was 1900 V$


Picked up this custom made "shotgun" straight pipe for the cost of 110V$


Finances: 4188 - 1900 (SR20DET) - 110 (new exhaust) = 2178 V$

Wheels, brakes and hoodrat stuff



My new wheels arrived! SSR Aigle Minerva 17x10 with Kuhmo tyres all for 1050 V$, not a bad price but the tyres aren't really in good shape but for now they'll do.

My car used to have a 4 lug setup, so i changed my brakes as well for Z32 brakes that i bought at a junkyard for 125 V$. My boss at the shop helped me doing a dual caliper setup for my rear brakes and to link them to my hydro e-brake.

And a friend of mine though as a joke to spray tag my car... not even mad tbh because it still needs to be painted. But it's a good joke tho.

Street Sesh



Then i finally took my car for a drive with my friends and some stuff happened... Not very legal stuff i must say but as long as the cops are not around one can get away with it, but had the time of my life and the SR20 Turbo feels so much powerful and easy to slide with, now my car needs to be painted and will look 100x better.

Oh also forgot to add in that i sold the Type-x Skirts and valence to David_2709 for 500 (check previous page)

Finances: 2178 - 1100 (SSR minerva w/ tyres) - 125 (Z32 brakes) + 500 (type-x skirts and valence sold)= 1453 V$

My 180 finally got painted!


I've been out for a while so didn't have chance to post this, but i finally got the aero parts of my 180 painted, that was actually a few days back but i went to Europe to visit my family and arrived yesterday so here it is.

My boss from the shop i work at built a paintbooth, and he has been a certificated painter for a while, but he didn't see profit on building a paintbooth until a series of requests started coming to get cars and parts painted. And that's perfect for me since i don't have to travel far to get it painted and i get a little worker's discount :)) The whole cost with the midnight blue paint included was around 975V$.
I also rolled my front fenders since i'm kinda broke to buy new ones and now with the Minervas i have a more aggresive wheel setup (17x10), and rolling my fenders allows me to go a little lower. Meanwhile my weekly paycheck came through so there's an extra 655V$ for my bank account




Before i went to Europe i had time to get some VHS early 2000's styled photos of my new setup, that's looking pretty much what i've been dreaming about forever, the hype for drift events is huge right now!
I also have in plans something that will change the look of the car a LOT, but gotta talk to a couple people first so for now that's all, rad drifty stuff coming soon B)

Finances: 1453 - 975 (paint aero) + 655 (paycheck) = 1133V$

Thanks hahaha but i'm not Russian :))


Radness


In the last post i talked about a few changes that i had in mind for my car and here's the biggest one:


I've gotten in contact with a local graphics shop and they hooked me up with a design for my team (cooldown) for my car. It looks so fucking rad right now with the chrome tribal styled flames. Also had some stickers from when i ordered parts from Origin Labo and 326 power laying around and the rest i bought (all around with the livery and all it costed around 350 V$ to get it done), also added some more stickers to my front window to look super cool while drifting and just because i can really.

Bringing back the 2001 D1GP style, this car has come through a long way but i love it now more than ever!
Also since its monday, it's payday time, so extra V$655 to my bank

Finances: 1133 - 350 (graphics) + 655 (paycheck) = 1438 V$

BN Sports Hatch


I've been hunting for this for a while but due to the rarity they are hard to come by, since BN Sports stopped producing them. The mighty BN Inverted Hatch.

So a guy from Nagoya who had a RPS13 had a nasty front end collision and the car got totaled, so they let him take whatever parts he wanted to keep, and he took the hatch among a few other parts. He also told me he wants to move to a new project so sold me the hatch for 950 V$.


My boss did me the favour of painting it for free, well kinda, he's gonna make me work double this week but fucking worth it.



Installed my Do-Luck wing back on and this thing looks so damn lit!! (p.s no i didn't loose my plates i just the rear one off because i was replacing one of the lights that was broken).

I need to start hitting drift events again now that the car is how i always wanted!!

Finances: 1438 - 950 (BN Hatch) = 488 V$

^^ Thanks guys!!

RIP MARK II


Well... I got t-boned by a woman driving a Camry a few days ago. She didn't stop at the sign and hit me in the front left side. Later analysis to her blood showed that she had alcohol in her blood...
I'm ok, well except i hit my head hard in the wheel with the impact, but nothing worrying just need some rest. But... My Mark II can't really say the same:


It's pretty much fucked, the chassis is twisted both in the front but it also caught the pillar, hood is bent to shit, my left side suspension is completely fucked (as you can see, this is how it looks with the wheel straight, my radiator ended up almost 20 metres from the crash site, engine supports broken, door fucked up and a few more stuff.

At least i got lucky due to the fact i'm not guilty and my insurance company covers the car, since it's given as totaled. It could still be fixed, but i would have to spend a lot of money.
The money i got for it was 3.250 V$ (which is actually a bit more than i even paid for it, lucky me that i got this for a steal: 2700V$ a few months back)

Now i need a new daily, which i'm now looking for something cheap, more updates on that soon, for now the 180 is gonna be my daily. Oh and also i got the monday's paycheck which was 755 V$ to add to the finances, with the crash and the couple days i been in the hospital were chaos

Finances: 488 + 750 (paycheck monday) + 3250 (totaled mark II insurance cover) = 4488 V$

Thanks guys i appreciate it! Yeah in the end it's just a car, but there's that bit of anger because other person caused this. Oh well, if it was my 180 would have been way worse.

New daily


Since the insurance money came from the totaled mark II i've been hunting for a cheap new daily driver. Meanwhile i had to drive my 180 to work and it was a fucking pain because it's so low and flashy, keeps attracting the attention of the wrong type of people.

So here it is, my "new" 1993 Honda Civic EG SI, powered by the "all-mighty" D16A8 SOHC non VTEC engine. It used to have around 120hp stock, but now must be more like 80-90hp because it has 170.xxx km in it.
I bought it for 1600 V$ from an old man, no big damage in it, paint's a little faded in some parts and couple scratches here and there nothing too serious.






Interior is in pretty fine shape, it's pretty much a base EG model, not even eletric windows.
So this for now is my trusted daily driver, i wanna do a couple things to it to make it look nicer, maybe new wheels, lowered and etc... but for now that's it. Still running temp plates until it gets registered. And since it's monday again (another week of work yay :headbang: ) 750V$ added

Finances: 4488 - 1650 (Civic) + 750 (Paycheck) = 3588 V$

Thanks K A Z I M I R and Lexotic :)

And yeah Jdm_Racer thanks, and i think with a ECU remap i could get a little extra from that SOHC

Some interior touches

`
Now that i have the civic for daily i can do more stuff on the 180SX without having to worry to drive right after.



I had removed my door panels on the 180, but decided to put them back, the weight they add isn't really much and it doesn't affect performance really and it makes the interior look way better. Bought a stock shifter as well because mine kept trying to dettach it self and it was getting annoying, 20 V$ for a new one isn't much.

This train handle my friend offered me a while back, i had it for a while as a tow strap but since i changed bumpers i couldn't fit it, so i decided now to use it as a handle for the passenger side

Also finally got around on wiring a boost gauge, since i got the new SR never got around to do it. Bought the gauge at UP GARAGE, total cost of 75 V$.
And to top it all off i cleaned it all and added some stickers on my dash, including one from my drifting crew (Cooldown)

Finances: 3588 - 20 (shift knob) - 75 (boost gauge) = 3493 V$

New aero... Again?!?


Yeah, you know how project cars are...
One day you think you're finished with it, the next day you find that one part you really wanted for a long time and you start again...

Plus my old aero was kinda wack. So i got told by a friend that UP GARAGE in Osaka could hook me up with a new original D-Max type-3 aero kit, for a bit less than D-Max it self, so i took a trip there and stayed at my friend and crew member Lexotic's house. So this new adventure costed me 1000 V$ (front bumper, rear bumper and side skirts) didn't get the overfenders because i'm happy with the setup i got. I saved a total of 250V$ (D-Max website asked 400 for front bumper, 400 rear bumper and 450 sideskirts).



After buying the aero i took my car to Lexotic's house and took out the old bumpers and test fitted the new aero, and i fucking love it.
One thing i realized after getting it all done is that i may need to search for 18" wheels because the 17's make me insanely low. After that i drove back to Saitama with my car in new style. I should get it painted this week, if my boss has an opening to do so. I raised my suspension to drive it home just because i didn't want to kill my fresh new aero.

Back in Saitama i managed to find a guy who bought my rear Origin Stream Line bumper for 200 V$. I still want to sell my Origin Aggresive Line sideskirts, so if anyone wants them for V$ 175 hit me up. I'm keeping my old front bumper for now.

Finances: 3493 - 1000 (D-max type 3 bumpers and skirts) + 200 (sold previous rear bumper origin streamline) = 2693 V$
