About time i started a project thread for this seeing things have started happening.

little history,

had a fair few cars when i was young from civic ek9's to a seriously cool escort cabby with a rs2000 engine one summer :cool:, then when i was 19, got a s14a spent loads on it and even got a feature in jap performance :ghey:


then i went mad and got an rx7, spent an unholy amount of money on it got it to just shy of 500bhp. but unfortunately due to me moving away and it being a 400 mile round trip for me to go home i had to sell as i couldn't afford to run it :down: and even worse my photo bucket has deleted all my pictures of it.


then i needed a compromise of a car, one that still excited me but wasnt too bad to run. then along came this :D


for those of you who dont know it, i bought it off krish who bought it off adamL who are both on the forum. they both did a mint job of looking after it!


was going to wait for abit befor i started playing but thats for :ghey:
got this boot full of bits to fit.
z32 rear brake setup.


battery relocation kit.


better clutch for when i go for more power.


gave it a quick clean when i got home.


went alton towers and won this haha.


the view from my window at camp now :smitten:



got bored today so i figured i would fit my sparco wheel and re locate my avc-r, interior is staring to come together now.


not happy with the boss tho so im on the look out for a good one, any recommendations?

got a fair few plans im the near future for it,
-coilovers, this means the s-tunes will be for sale
-new wheels, maybe advan rg's, te37, regas? in white tho not black... like wise the enkies will be for sale
-a pair a brides or recaros
-aero rear splats
-modify the spoiler to make it prettier
-front end respray.

and then over the winter cams and maybe a rebuild.

thats it for now will put a spec list up soon.

My old car :D

it needs coilovers back on it, it sat perfectly on the ride height I had it at. Preffered it without the spoiler and 50/50 lights though :)

your car is becoming a bit of a S15OC slut mate... but still had bad ass brakes up front which you should have sold to me...

Haha not the bear would fit in the front had to go in my pals s3.

Adam, don't worry coilovers are first on my list, that and some new wheels been emailing advan to see if they can make rg-d's in the sizes I want.

And I kinda like the spoiler, but not the gipping bit in the middle so I'm going to chop it out like this one.


also just ordered a hkb boss today :)

Can't remember atall, mate. That was fitted two years ago. Krish text me a while back about it as he removed it for something and couldn't remember which wire it used.

The brakes were one of the best things about the car, they were very good :D

I'm glad it's stayed in the club, I even bought it off one of the sxoc guys back in 2010

Yeh he removed the afr and relocated the avc-r. I found one of the wires for the afr behind the stereo but not the other. And I Cba rip the dash apart to find it haha.

How did you find the hsd's on it? I'm weighing up coilovers now and it's a toss up between hsd monotube, apex gen 2 street and meister r. Iv also been offered a swap of the standard diff for a nismo pro gt 2way, but not sure if its worth if for a street/occasional track car.

The hsd's were pretty hard, but I liked them. I drove the car around the terrible streets of London for two years and I managed just fine with them. I used the car a few times on track and the car had great levels of grip with minimum roll.

I've got CS2's on mine, very pleased with them. It did have Apex Comfys which were way to soft for me :)

If I was looking for new I'd be very tempted by the RS-R's that Fasthands has for sale if they're still available :nod:

Forgot about this, few things have been happening.

First of all been trying to get the interior sorted and nice :)

bought a hkb boss so I could fit the sparco wheel and got hold of some red dc2 recaros :) was going to go or fixed buckets but seen astho it's my daily I wanted comfy. Fitted them with bride super low rails.

I also relocated the apexi avc-r.
