Well after being anally raped on my clip i decided to use the s13 peices which fit very well. For all of you who dont know i ordered a s14 front clip and recieved a s13 clip with a s14 engine in it. long story but everything is going to work good at this point http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

Here are some new pics.. Im at the point where i need to weld in the firewall.. i would have started tonight but i dont have a welder until this weekend. http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/frown.gif

after that the motor and wiring is going in!! http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif

enjoy

Looks great. JDM S14 dashes don't have airbags? Oh yeah... nice pedals too... I have the same ones.

You're getting there - Good luck with it.

Sorry to hear about getting screwed like that... But glad you're making it work anyway. Most of the stuff is interchangable anyway.

So how did you determine that it was an S13 clip even with the S14 engine and S14 dash? Weren't all the heater and a/c units under the dash S14? Was the front xmember S14? What did the front tc rods look like? Did it have the brake cooling vents and what was the length? Was there the second tubular brace under the dash around the center console area that spans from the firewall to the main tubular brace as found only on JDM S13s? (it's welded to the firewall so people can't just "swap" it out)

Good job man, can't wait to see it finished....

One thing though...

Are you swapping the e-brake to the other side as well?

Is it possible?

I'm considering a project like this (on an S13 though) and was wondering about e-brake changovers..

Everything was s14 except for the chassis and chassis wiring. I noticed it was s13 when i saw RPS13xxxxxx for the vin.

Thanks http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

Yes I am swapping the ebrake over. But im going to wait until i find a new center console. Its a matter of welding 2 brackets on the other side and changing the ebrake lever to JDM.

Looks like a lot of fun man. My clip should be here shortly and I have been planning to do the same process you are doing. RHD is awesome. I am sure I will contact you in the future for questions and tips.

i just saw in a magazine that veilside makes a stainless steel manifold for the SR20. are you planning on putting a different manifold on your car? i think they are good for like 20 hp on a moderately tuned car.
