Haven't had any time to do anything with the car, basically just fixed/replaced a few bent brackets and got everything cleaned up. I swear there was at least 20lbs of black top in, on, and stuck to the cross member and frame rails. Once that was all out i ended up putting the motor in.



The clutch i wanted is still on back order so i had to settle for a sprung 6 puck ACT with prolite flywheel. Now it seems like im waiting for everything else to show up.

thanks for your kind words. Only i have to disappoint you and say that the car wont be flat black for much longer. If parts keep going on back order its getting put in a paint booth and getting finished. So far everything i ordered has gone on back order. Minus the wiring harness, exhaust mani, turbo, and fuel pressure regulator. Looks like lefthander chassis will be getting a bunch of my money for AN lines and fittings as well.

Side note: anyone know what size the breather tee on exhaust side of an sr valve cover is? Its getting tapped an AN tee and im not sure what size? I want to say -8. Anyone can chime in on it.

its mainly sparkly purple(my favorite), but it turns green. If you go on Duponts website you can see all their colors. This was a special one time deal, and the guy who did it for ended up having to buy like 20lbs of this specific powder at $35 a pound. The guy who owns the bike company i design/ride for did it for me. Once i get it all together ill get better pics in the sunlight. These phone pics dont do it justice.

Wait what another update?

This is the "OOOOHHHH NO, SOMEONE STOLE MY FRONT END!" update




ok, nobody really stole it, its in my attic. Figured since im still back ordered on pretty much everything, i might as well start the bastardization of my hatch. So off came the flip ups stuff, and on goes the silvia front.

Sileighty time:



oh and a little more done on the sr. Got my isis manifold, tomei oil block, earls "big ass oil cooler" oil cooler(not pictured), 50ft of -8an nylon braided hose (breather vent bs), 50ft of -10 an stainless braided line for the oil cooler/relocation setup, and bunch of misc.an fittings.



definitely recommend the isis mani for anyone looking for a tubular manifold. This thing is thick wall tubing and looks amazing. Reminds me of the AMS mani i had for my ka-t.

Its got all brand new top end gaskets and the oil pan was rtv'd on. What more, info wise, do you need?

Item: Ka24de (spare motor) **edit 91 s13** GONE
Price: $400 o.b.o
Shipping: if you want to pay for it all
Description:
My 2nd dohc motor that was going to be run in the car while the good
one is at the shop being gone through. Got an sr now and have no use for
it anymore. Already has my stainless turbo lines valve cover from good
motor and bent ass oil pan (needs to be fixed) attached to it. Its a
stock ka with arp head studs and all new gaskets. I think it needs a new
front main seal, but not 100% sure, just looks greasy under the pulley.
Slap your favorite manifold and turbo on it and have 13 psi of fun. It
was run twice but i never dynoed this motor(emance tune). Still has my
555's in it but ill be throwing in stockers. Comes with ecu (stock or
emance tuned, suck in limp mode), wiring harness oem clutch and
flywheel, ignition coil, wires, and w/e else you'll need. Trans not
included





this is what you have

Forgot i made this thread, but i guess i can update for you guys.

Car was professionally straightened and is much straighter now, then before the sink hole. Ended up buying a house and the gf and i closed the last day of November after coming back from Oklahoma. Car was then moved from moms to here.



Been busy with moving and making the house what we want that i forgot to work on the car. That and half the garage is insulated and i my bones dont work in the cold. But hey its a 6 year old house we got for $74,900 when it originally sold for $150k.

13 days later i got laid off. So the car hasnt been a priority. But i have had some stuff come in.



Tony if you have the powder i can get your stuff powder coated. Just make sure its as clean as can be. If not the powder wont stick.
