...............


you should buy a vertex kit ( or copy ) and create a urethane version, using molds.... just to prove it can be done.

I have thought about it, but not completely sold on it. Also, I don't really want what everyone else has. I would have to make my own if I did one...... if only I had a TIG welder. The things I could do :naughty:

Besides, my overflow is a new one, so it's in perfect shape.

C-4 under gas and driver seat.

It's not very intelligent to tell someone on the internet how you protect an investment such as his S13... He's got more time and money involved in that car than I have in my entire driveway. (I own 3 vehicles...)

I agree with you, If it ain't broke don't fix it. I have a circuit sports overflow because my old one had a huge hole in it. IMO it is totally worth it. Even if yours is still brand new the aluminum would look awesome in your clean engine bay. If you have any friends that have one, you should test fit one in your bay. I promise you will fall inlove with it. :biggrin:

I have no complaints about the Stance. But I mean it's just a RUCA, so I'm not sure how there would be much difference between brands, aside from the quality of the welds and materials used. Hell, I thought the Stance were cheap. I was going to get Cusco, as that's the brand I usually run on my vehicles, but the Stance looked quality and they were in stock. Some of the cheaper brands suffer from poor welds.

as well as poor coatings. The Ebay ones will rust around the welds much sooner.

I had the breather box itself made by T1. I then made all of the AN lines for my particular setup. If I had a TIG welder, I would of done it myself. But I just haven't ponied up the dough for a nice TIG yet. It pains me when I have to pay someone else to make something for my car. That breather box and my paint job are the only things I can think of that I haven't done myself.

Wow that is nice. I love one offs! Any reason for the three breathers? Wouldn't one have sufficed? Just curious, thanks

Not sure about the three breathers... that's just how T1 made it. They use the same box on 600whp Hondas. Even with that much power, they can still get crankcase pressure down to zero with this box. I have four -10 AN lines going to the box. So maybe only two would of been needed, but three looks more impressive. :chuckle:

You can find the breather box below if you care. I had them customize the AN bung locations to my liking.

Also here is a comparison to my old breather that use to be on my car... which is a pretty common size that people run. There is no comparison.

Judging by your craftsmanship and attention to detail, I am guessing you are not open to suggestions from people unless they produce the same quality of work you do... even so, I have a recommendation. I think your car would look great with some nice clean oem mudflaps... might be hard to find a clean set and from what I gather, you can't get them from nissan anymore. Your car actually inspired me to take my mudflaps off... but after a year or so without them I have decided to put them back on (when I get around to it). I have decided that cars without aero look better with flaps.
