actualy i think it was pretty fair because to make an sr with these parts it will easy pass 7K and he also got the tranny.

I sold my 180SX engine and trans for 1.8k and it had a lot of goodies... Basically the car gave you a lot of money from engine alone! Imma try to do that and make $$!

But I'm happy what you did with the GT-R! You did a good job on that!

So you know that point in your life that everthing is runnning great no one can stop you and the SH*T Happens and give you an slap at the face killing your plans so last night i was so pimped to paint the Merc that already removed the running gear and stripped the interior and some parts of the exterior like the rack and my crappy foglights.And took the Buddy(my civic name) and went to my house for an good night of sleep. So at the other day i woke up checked my phone and he was with more than 80 missed calls and was at this point that shit happened. I made a deal with my friends that runs the paint shop that i will let her with the general key parked at the front of the shop so when he can grab her with the tow truck and went straight there to the painting,so actualy about 1AM one guy that was rolling down the street came saw her break the glass and after 10 min he discovered how to start her and just leaved.So i called the insurance company after talking with the cops and they told me that if the car wasnt located in Two days they will give me the prize.

So if someone see an an slammed E190 britsh race green rolling at the LA area call the cops please

New Daily/Drifter


So today after i spent more than three hours at the PD to solve the merc stuff at least while i was there i searched some rides at the craiglists till i found this *LINK* at the begining i was a little afraid of the swap but when i saw the car myself the fear was gone so he's different of the pics at the craiglists cause while anyone bought the car the owner keep working on he.



So the final price was V$1800 if i got the enkei's it will be for V$2200 but mine diamond steelies were the same pattern so i choosed the cheap way

Out with the Old in with the New

So since i finished the R32 i put the civic at craiglists cuz i decided that we already got our great times but it was hard to find an good owner but yesterday some guy called while he was looking at the car i made some questions and he liked the car and i liked the owner afther some negotiation we made an deal with V$6300 wich is kind of litlle bellow considering the mods like an B18C3 swap that's good for about 350 hps without boost.

New daily (Again?)

So ofther i sold the civic i was in need of an daily so i called an guy that i was talking and bought another S13 but this time Full OEM. Because i decide to make an kind of Drift build at my other one. And this is for daily abusing but i also got something planned for this one.





So why drift car? Beacuse first i sold the 1JZ for the friend that's working at the custom suspension and first i want another power unit and so i it will took me some time to finish installing the angle suspension that i still need another car to not put my 32 on any risk so as i'll had onther car i can build this the way i want.





So about the Merc insurance they relased the money today and they pay me like she still had the seats and coils and other aftermarket parts that actualy were off because of the paint process but i dont complained to avoid troubles.

So here's the big update

So let me speak first about my JDM stuff.When i was ordering the R32 wheels i also became with their shop owner beacuse he was hwlping with some parts from japan, and while we are talking about some cars i mentioned my 240 and then he offered me his old Sr20 that he used to roll in his S15 but at some point he decided to swap an VK56 into he and then the Sr Got himself homeless So i got he at the second day with my pretedended daily that turned into an full different build."and the wheels!" so when i put my kouki Jdm tail and imagine an full different car i decided that my meister's wouldnt fit the final car so i got myself an Set NISMO'S Lmgt1 INSIDE THE BOX.So The final price for the engine and the wheels became V$5000.

Kind pricy ABSLOTULY NO considering the ton Of mod's.By first an GTX3567R Turbo feeded By an Neukin Mainfold,Greddy oil pan,Nismo Cams,NGK Super premium IRIDIUM Spark Plugs,Nismo Fuel Rail and 550cc injectors Controlled By an Megasquirt3.

So about the painting i decided to do an Two tone Color Scheme That:engine Bay,roof ,roof wing,Underbody... in Pure black and the car body Is painted At the KYO for who doesn't is the iconical color called:Special Silver used at the legendary Nismo R34 Z-Tune

In California, if it's 1976 or newer, you have to smog it. You can get smog-exempt 280zs (My dad has a 75 280z irl lol).

So today the prepping for the engine beggin early.By first i reinstalled my dash with all the reinforcements,fancyness (unesse├žary weight) already with an race spec gauge box with the extra info of the engine and two Ebc/loggers, the instruments that are mounted up on the panel are the critical Engine monitiorating ones.So to power all of the perifericals and pass event spections i also made an panel for an general key,Switches,Radio, Fire button... The last thing that went on the interior was my MINT custom built Hydro E-brake.So the entire car is ready for the engine that i've been building and prepping to install,But i decided to run with an Rear mount radiator and individual Oil cooling setup.

So as i expect that every one know's i own a little tunning shop in La,but i always liked to dont talk much about the shop stuff,But i considered that this project deserved to had an attention.So the guy that bought my old civic called me at wendsday and asked me if we do complete projects beacuse he had an friend that was looking for someone to build his 240z.When i meet with his friend on the next day he told me that first this car belonged to his father and he always wished to restore it but never had the spare time to do it so je decided as an tribute to build this car.So the car is an 240z that was orinaly white but as he sitted for an year he has an big ammountof dust sitting the engine doesnt exist and the suspension is an complete Sh*t But he has no rust and is an great blank canvas So we agreed on 25k So i can restore/build the whole thing.
