So I havent posted pictures of my car in a while, so here it goes.

Bought the car in february last year and it was a pile of shit.




That engine lasted me less than 100 miles before I decided to just replace it rather than fix it. And me being poor, I couldnt afford much. So I picked up an S14 sr20de pretty cheap.



I then got a new bumper and some ssr wheels, the car stayed like this for a while.



In july I got my ksport coilovers and some new wheels, the 17's rubbed against the coilovers.





I recently bought some 16 inch volk racing mesh wheels, which I had to raise the car to use with the tires that were on them. I put the wheels on the car tuesday, and I took these pictures about 10 minutes ago.

I cant help it. Oh well, the 15's are currently for sale, which should give me money for tires for the 16's.

What? The black wheels are 15x7 with 205/50R15 tires. I was asking $500 for them with tires.

So do I, but I need spacers so they dont rub on the coilovers

Yeah, the fender that came on the car was dented pretty bad, and I got the black one for free. The original front bumper had a huge hole cut in it for some reason, so I got the current one I have pretty cheap.

I'm currently in the middle of replacing the timing chain and pretty much cleaning the whole engine bay up.

That'd be very nice, so fresh, so clean
turbobrick
This is what it looks like currently, right now I'm waiting on my timing chain kit to come in the mail.

Because of school, I havent worked on the car in almost two weeks. My dads lotus is out of the body shop so I lost my garage space. So my dad is being nice and is parking his landcruiser outside until the car is movable again.

In other car news, I got my coilovers for my volvo and I have almost all the parts I need to put a 5 speed manual in it.

Did you cut down your mailbox to make your engine lift? laugh.gif
turbobrick
lol, no. I now noticed that it looks like that with the wooden ramps in the background.
turbobrick
update. Its almost back together. Right now I'm waiting for my valve shim tool, and once the valves are shimmed, there's not much left to do.

Its definately a lot cleaner than before

They're fixed now.
goota
what exactly have you been doing to your engine?
turbobrick
replacing the timing chain, and I got new cams.
goota
how much gain are you looking at with the new cams?
turbobrick
at least 15hp or something around that.

It runs, but I need a new intake cam gear because the vtc isnt working.
Matt_L
Nice project! Keep it up!

Reminds me of my old '92 240sx coupe. I miss this car, so fun to drive!

It is, which is why it sucks I havent driven it in so long. I'm buying some s13 cam gears off someone so I can temporarily eliminate the vtc, that way I can at least drive it around until I buy a new vtc gear.

I started working on the volvo today, my dad isnt happy about my taking up the garage

Yeah, those wheels arent even mine. The wheels that are normally on the car are on my white volvo right now. Those are basically there to roll it around.

Well, I have three cars. My third is a volvo 240 which I'm driving around while I'm working on these two.
turbobrick
