Default Re: 93' Coupe with Redtop build!

And now for the work done!

Tear Down








Then we finally put the SR in, Brakes on, 5 lug hubs/spindles, S14 Front Spindles, 5mm Spacers, Extended Studs, Megan Street Coilovers, SS Brake Lines, Custom Z32 e brake brackets, And miscellaneous fabrication to neaten things up. I've still yet to hear this engine even start. So if everything goes as planned the next time I drive this car it should drive like a brand new vehicle. All this work was started after the engine was mounted. But, being new to automobiles and mechanics I'm taking my time and figuring things out one thing at a time.












From today It should be driving again in about 2 weeks as I am waiting for some exhaust gaskets to come as well as I need to fix a Power Steering pump problem.Just found more Pictures of things. Painted Calipers, Fixed my rats nest of an engine harness. And some of the 08 Z wheel fitment.












Edit: UPDATEEEEEE

Ok! So since the harness tuck we got all the problems worked out to make it run and driveable

Z32 Maf was swapped with an OEM SR20det one and it was the culprit of why it ran like ****. But here is a shot of the car in the good weather.

Any idea on what happened to the owner of that car? I'm almost certain he was a member on here, went to the 240sxmotoring meets every year and I sold him a pignose lip. Hope he pulled through... wish I remembered his username.

His name was Wandson And yes it was a pignose lip. But i'm not sure if he was the one you met because he purchased the car from someone else who did all the work.

But yeah. Miraculously he only had a fractured nose. Not even broken. He Caught a patch of sand on bald tires and spun out into a telephone pole
