^going to the rb25 the tach and speedo were now wrong so I had a friend make this mounting plate for me, I painted the plate black for now, I'll more then likely have carbon fiber layed on it after I decide where I'm puttinga shift light^
^here's my quest alternator upgrade. the bracket on the bottom left of the left picture is the bracket i had to have made to do this. this aloud me to use the stock adjuster and belt, had to drill out the lower bolt holes and get a longer bolt. also had to do some griding on the alternator to keep it from hitting engine mounting point. with out doing so i couldn't slide the bolt all the way through, did some grinding also on the bolt shim. volts before upgrade was about 11.9 under idie and now about 13.8^
^Here's four pics of when i bought it back in may 2007^

How did you (if you even did) get the RB to play nice with OBD-II? I'm looking at getting an S14 (with RB30 plans) - it'd make my life way easier if I could get one other than a '95. In NY if your car throws a CEL you cannot pass inspection.
Ride looks great. Def an inspiration since I'm goin S15
Awesome car man! I love s chassis and RB's! 5 stars, keep up the good work!
the engine is immaculate. tons of power. I love it, man. Check mine out sometime.... It's not much, but it is a work in progress....
so... you did how much of this work?
besides the body work and some things that were done when i bought the car. i'd say i did about 75 percent of the work. The other 25 percent was family and friends for custom fabrication of parts, welding and some paint work.
