Hey! And here I am on the new site!
Old page
For those who do not know anything about me, then:
My name is Nick. I am 23 years old. I am a car mechanic and I live in Tokyo.
Here are my projects:

Toyota Supra - Daily car

This is a stock supra with a couple of improvements.
I just put the TRD wing and TRD muffler.
It has been registered for a long time and I ride it every day.
I removed the license plates from the car for the photo!
I have nothing more to say about that car.

Nissan 180sx - Drift machine

And here we come to the most interesting car!
This is my main project for today.
It has a body kit from Supermade, taillights from D-max, wheels from BBS, seats from Recaro and tires from Toyo Tires.
I also recently rearranged turbokit, Exas F1 exhaust, MOMO steering wheel, all gauges and controllers from S13 to it.
And now this Nissan has 360 horsepower under the hood!
Later I will add full rollcage and livery to it.

Nissan S13 - WIP


I bought this car recently and used it only to get spare parts and money from it.
I sold an RB body kit, hood and I also bought 17 inch SSR GTX02 rims and another Nardi steering wheel.
Because I want to swap front end.
I will also take off stock turbokit and buy ITB, but it will be later!

In the meantime, that's all!
Stay tuned!

Small but expensive updates!


On Monday I bought Tomei SR22 stroker kit! It cost 3.265V$.
I installed it because I wanted more power and alive SR20!
After that I bought Greddy Intake Manifold.
And again. I bought because I want more boost!

Image

Also I printed and pasted @BigSmoke's stickers!
Thanks to him for the designs of these stickers!

OwO a 2.2 stroker kit? I c i c but do you really need so much power and all this parts if you wanna drift? I mean idk how experienced you're but you don't need 500hp to drift, you can drift pretty much anything rwd with clutch kicks every now and then. Anyway it does get interesting and the stickers are nice too :P

Yahey Tomei gang! :lol: I also used Tomei strokers in my Evo, and coincidentally it's also a 2.2 stroker (though obviously it's fitted to 4G63 instead of SR20)

Also I deeply appreciate you having my slaps on my car, thank you so much :D
Still following the damn train since 1992

Selling an old car and buying a new one!



I sold my Supra because I realized that to own it you need a lot of money!
2JZ-GE is very slow! And in order to buy a good turbo kit you need money.
To buy a good body kit, money is needed again.
I will buy Supra again, but later!
In the meantime, let's look at the new car!


2003 BMW E46 M3

Oooh Yeah! I bought it!
The car I dreamed about! (This is certainly not the M3 GTR, but I like it anyway!)
It has 113.030 miles on the speedometer.
It cost 18.790V$ but I bargained to 16.900V$
Now let's look at specs:


338HP Stock S54B32
H&R Street Perfomance coilovers kit
18 inch BBS LM rims
Michlen Pilot Sport tires
LED taillights
Custom front lip
Black M3 logos


Pics:

I think it was a good deal!
And also I found all sorts of old parts and sold them all for 2.000V$.
These were parts from all Nissans and Supra.
A little later I will most likely buy a compressor kit for BMW and I will probably put other wheels!
And later I will be engaged in Silvia!

Sad to see the supra go, but the e46 is a good ride, i want one myself in the future sometime, it's definitely looking sweet, and the price seems fair enough, i love the led taillights

OwO m3 e46? and it's a real one? Damn that looks really clean and i already like how it looks. It's almost like my e36 (except it never probably even met and m3 except for fake parts) lmfao. Can't wait to see what you'll do with it

[oorp i guess you can ask him but they're probably private or smthg]

More chrome!


I don’t really like chrome, but I'm tired of everything black!
And so I was the first to buy Work VS-XX! As for me, these are beautiful wheels and they are great for this BMW!

Image

Then I bought logos for the trunk and side grilles. I did not buy chrome side grills as for me it will be too much chrome.

Image

Next I bought a chrome front grill with black center.

Image

And finally, the purchase that I liked the most! This is clear led taillights! These lights are so vivid!

Image

I couldn’t sell my BBS and other spare parts due to the situation in Japan! And about how I survived the storm I wrote here viewtopic.php?p=15134#p15134

More small updates!


I wanted some new parts for BMW and this is what I bought:

Hood Air Vents (50V$)

Image

These are GTR style vents.
I just bought them, cut the hood and secured them.

Spoiler (250V$)

Image

Just no name spoiler.
It is quite light and looks cool!

Front Lip (0V$)

Image

I was annoyed by black lip! And I just repainted it in white.

Also I sold my old parts! It was hard to find anyone that would buy rims!

Questions:


What should I do next with BMW?

Should I change chrome wheels to black on it?

What should I improve in 180SX?

Sell ​​or leave S13?
