Well as everyone knows I sold my white hatch with the ca18det due to my deployment. I still miss it.
But I couldn't go long without having a project car to look at or work on.
So picked up this 90 coupe with ka24e-t project
Not the best looking but very clean and rust free

How the car sits is on new Megan track coils
5lug swap
Z32 brakes
Ka24e-t
Cxracing kit brand new
450cc dsm injectors
Eclipse wheels
Brand new in box xxr wheels (18x9 and 18x10.5)
Isis blast pipes
2 front ends (stock pig nose, one piece front with widen bmagic front fenders)
Aggressive side skirts and rear bumper to match
And



shit ton more parts in a box


I was in a toss up with doing a 1jz/2jz or doing a ls1/2
I had 3 months that my deadline is to finish.
Well bullshitting on craigslist I found a ls
40,000 miles from a 2002 Chevy camaro 35th anniversary 6speed
Talaked down to a good price and this is what it looks like







With the motor I got more than I planned (not complaining)
I got stock headers all o2 sensors and rear o2 sensor
Brand new ls1 mounts and old mounts
Full harness and pcm
Maf and factory air box
All cruise control stuff
All 3 pedals
All belts and pulleys
And a cart to roll the motor around on


My plans for it will be to pull the ka
Clean up engine bay
Choose between sikky or fueled racing full lsx swap kit
Aem fuel pump
Upgraded master cylinder
Wiring done by Justin at qfab
Got a brand new wiring harness from a 90 240 and will send in with full ls harness.
And then find something out for the exhaust (quiet or loud)
Get rid of body kit and molded flare and rivet flares on
Get tuned
And maybe enjoy it a few days before I deploy to afghanistan

Check for updates I'll be doing work this next week

I think this is going to be fun
Hopefully I don't run into to much problems
Seems like its pretty straight forward from what I have been reading
Even tho a lot of write ups I have seen have been from 5 years ago lol

No A/C, altima fans should work, and walboro with a vette filter (built in regulator)... hopefully soon to be a d word pump. Flick knows what I'm talking about.

Dechwork or something lol
How much the vette filter?
Who did your tune? Did you remove all your o2 sensors? Or just the rear one(s)

Yep, that's the pump. The vette filter came with the fuel system I bought. Speed inc did my final tune and just rear o2s removed.

You are a lucky man Paul! Wish I would have went V8. The cost is not bad for the power you get from it.

Pound he trans tunnel and tuck some wires and shit.
Sending off the harness prob tomorrow as well to get done
And going to order my fuel system threw fueled racing.

Otherwise work on brakes and getting that fender flare off.
Getting excited

A good point job won't be till I get back. Most likely

Def. Message me details on what you all got lol
And I just read your message. My question was hiding in the message which wasn't really clear.
I was asking about the temp the fans kick on with your tune and such

Put in a lower temp thermostat and base your fan turn on from there. I'm using the factory computer for the fan relay, not an adjustable kit.

For example, the factory t-stat is 195*, and the fan turns on at 210*. In my car, this runs WAYYY to hot. I put in a 165* t-stat, so I'm going to change the fan turn on temp to 180*... still a 15* difference.

More advice: If you order headers, order them uncoated and get them done like your other stuff on the CA. It will save you time and money.

As for the paint, let me know when you're ready. Smile

Yea they won't be coated.
At least I hope not. Getting the headers done will be when I get back. I want to put it all together and get it running right. Then go from there.
The relay for the fans is on the body harness of the 240 correct?

Just making sure I am doing it the right way first lol

Hmm hopefully mine was. I didn't notice when I was taking it off.
But then again I didn't see it when it was in the car to see if it was hooked up
I guess I'll find out and figure out how to wire it to the altima fans
