View Full Version : KA-T is sold and the SR is in my new S13

Well as some of you know, or may not know, I sold the beast. I sold it to a guy in NC who loves it. The guy brought with him a member of this forum named Kyle who also owns a turbo KA. I told Kyle after the sale that I was going to look at an S13 to buy for the hell of it, he told me he was a member of a mailing list and that one of the members about 2 hours away from me was selling an S13 in my price range that was modified. Needless to say I got ahold of the owner and after he told me what it had done, and how much he wanted, I knew I had found my next project car.

I bought the 93 SE hatch with the following mods: Remote control CD player, Boston Acoustics speakers, Clifford Alarm, S14 Leather Seats, Short Shifter, CAI, HS Header, HKS exhaust, PDM racing Cat, Whiteline sway bars and bushings, Eibach Sportlines, Brand new Tociko Blues shocks, LSD, 300ZX TT brakes, 5 Lug conversion, and a Jim Wolf Clutch. The car ran like a champ and I only paid $2000 for it!!

I picked up and SR20DET from a friend and spent all this past weekend installing it with the help of a few close friends. It even monsooned saturday night while we were working on it which made it real fun in my driveway. We were able to get it running sunday by twisting the [censored] out of the crank angle sensor but it had some other minor problems and it was getting dark, and I was so sick of working on it I gave up. I took a day off yesterday and came hom today determined to get it running. I tightened up the PS line which was leaking all over the place, and pulled the valve cover to reset the CAS, the first time I got it wrong so it didnt run but then I reset it again and viola! It breathed life! Turned the boost up with my "Homie The Clown" boost controller from Home depot and off we went drifting into the night!!! Its nothing like the 400rwhp KA but it will do for now. I am buying a Silvia front end this week and then painting it. I kept my Volks off of my S14 so it should look pretty sick once it's complete. I think i already have a buyer for it though http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif he made me an offer I cannot refuse but we'll see if he actually comes through or not. I will get pics up as soon as I can.

I wasnt going to mess with it much at first but of course once you start driving something, you feel the need for tinkering so I may do some things to it to get the hp up to make it a little more fun before she goes.
