i doubt it's the top hat manifold( it does look like it) Scott at Top hat did work for unstable for a little bit. I'll have to ask him if he knows about this car.

here is my lilt baby.



Note this is just after I moved to GA from Knoxvile. I droped the motor in and towed it to the shop in GA.This is only like 4 hours of work. most of it being spray painting the engine bay.

Me (kyle) ,Thagard, and nate all live in the same town so I was lucky to meet them both but i think Thagard ordered the collector and nate welded it up, i think thats what he told me.When I step up to a bigger turbo I'm thinking about going with the same design

Nice Pic's everyone im half suprised that there isnt more single turbo conversions done. I will try and get some pics of some friends 240sx's with RB's. 1 has a fastback with a RB26 and a T78 (WIP) and the other has a S14 With and RB25 and a GT35R

it is a little slow on the bottom, but it makes it up on the top end. no it was not bolted on at that point someone wanted a pic of the motor so i just set in on the mani, that core was trashed and it had taken it off to ship back . than header was build buy a me and a freind of mine that had a shop here in town called NRG. he had the idea of what it need to look like, and I had the welders and helped him build it. He has great skills, and his cars made mad power but he closed his shop to focus on his family.I will post up more pics of the header soon. Thagard built one just like it a few mounths ago but did not build mine

That is cool as hell. I was thinking about doing that but wasn't sure if it would fit. I thought the hood wouldn't close right.

Here is a pic of my engine bay before I recently took the motor out. I put a new one back in with some new goodies but it is not put together yet.

I've heard of at least 2, a s14 w/ rb25 and a s13 w/ a rb20. There's a meet August 13th at Babler state park. I think a few might be there.
