S13 convertible project

Post  cmg on Fri Mar 09, 2012 7:43 pm

Ive never actually taken very many pictures of my progress on any of the cars I've built. I'm going to try to this time. I have had a few s13's I've drifted with:







This is the new project:









Top was damaged so i opted to remove it and throw it in the dumpster. Cage and canvas layover will go on the keep from getting sunburned too bad and keep rain from falling directly on me:







Installed 5 lug and powered by max knuckles. Circuit sports tie rods have been replaced with oem s14 tie rods.





Bought these wheels from Bryant (s13beast) and sent one face to memory fab to have two 5" lips made for the rear. Use the rear wheels on the front.



I bought a 2jz with r154 and some extras but that ended up being a little more than I could afford for now so it will be going to another home. Im gonna put Sean's sr in instead (sr details when installed):



Isis intercooler, chasebays ps kit, cb coolant overflow tank, Isis straight pipe:









Bc coilovers, wideband, and boost gauge are on the way. Thats all the progress pics for now.

Cuz I slam my cars. Its really close to the arch of the fender. Didn't want to risk it rubbing. I was kind of unsure if it would hit or not so i just cut it out incase.

On a side note: Who is decent with an AEM EMS? Im trying to get it to act right so I can drive it to the dyne and not tow it. Im gonna try another computer tom but for whatever reason it won't stay connected to the EMS. I don't know if its my shitty old computer or the serial to usb adapter I have.

Wating on these so I can swap parts of my wheels around. 5" lips:



Adjusted the coilovers today but not happy yet. I need s13 tension rods. s14 rods are too long all the way shortened:





I need to figure out how I'm gonna tuck my exhaust a little more too:
