Red s13.4 Build Thread.

Postby kasperjd4 » Wed Nov 13, 2013 9:03 am

Hey everyone.

I just picked up a red vert. Pics will be coming up soon once I change a few things. Car is pretty clean, but has oxidization on the hood & needs rear interior pieces which I'm picking up tomorrow.

Already has:

5 lug
5 spd
300zx brakes
Clear tail lights
Coilovers
j30 diff
Isis Aluminum Radiator
Vibrant dual tip exhaust
7" lcd touch screen radio

UNCRACKED DASH!! YAY!
only 120k miles.


Future plans for the car is:
s13.4 kouki front
Bride Gias lo-max seats,
either 2jz or rb26 swap.

Pretty much just wanting it to be a extremely clean daily driver. I used to have a 680whp rb25 s14, but this is going to be more of a fun 300-400whp car for driving around town.

Pix to come! And lots of build info starting soon.

Some new photos... Not much progress so far. The KA I bought it with blew up about 3 weeks after I bought it. Rebuilt a brand new S14 KA and swapped it in.

Installed r33 seats. Trying to figure out what to do with the rear seats...

I've been having a hard time finding rear interior pieces for the vert. so I spend today designing and building this:

Total project costed $27. The woofer and amps came with the car when I bought it. I built the entire enclosure from scratch.


First test fit with the enclosure built.

After Carpeting I set everything up and drilled the holes for wiring.

Finally installed! Looks great and cleans up the rear of the vert!

So the guy who was selling me the full s14 kouki front end backed out... So now I have a pair of headlights and nothing else. I was planning on picking it all up from Georgia yesterday, but no more.... The search continues!

However, my wonderful wife did give me permission to make this my dream car! Woot! so I'm starting to source parts for my rb26 swap.

Also was able to pick these bad boys up. All brand new, never installed... just been sitting around for a while. Planning on installing them in a few weeks, I had to order a steering rack and new axles so I'm waiting on everything to come.

Dirty after sitting for a year:

Image

Picked these up from Home Depot for under $10

Image

Ta Dah! Shiny and new!

Here's my bounty!

Since the guy with the s14 kouki front backed out.. I found a CLEANNNNN S13 sil front near me. I never considered a sil front.. Can I get a vote??? S13.4 kouki or S13 Silvia?

Well it's been a year since my last post and things have been coming along. The s13.4 front has been installed, car has been painted. Instead of rb26 like originally planned I have a rb30/26dett currently at the machine shop being cleaned. Enjoy the new pics of the build.
