S14 Nissan 240sx
My car is Pink I realize that it might possibly look better if i were to paint it all black or white... but anyone can make a black or white car look great. Not everyone can make a pink car great. The goal for this car is to have 500 whp with great engine response, Great handling and look/perform great. I'd like the car to have performance that is comparable with supercars triple its cost.
When the car was a daily driver I had weighed it in at a weigh station and was 2650lbs completely stock and about 1/4 tank of gas. Since then I've been keeping track of all the pounds i've lost in thebuild by putting everything that was removed into a bin. So far between sound deadening, random brackets, bumper supports, air bags, the difference between stock exhaust and my new Trusttitanium, plus some other things... It all weighed up a little over 150lbs, not including interior trim. The car will have full interior. I did not include the fact that the sr20det is slightly lighter than the KA24de, because of course some of the parts on the car that im installing are in fact heavier than the stock parts... such as the larger brake rotors, wheels and tires. Hopefully the car will be around 2500lbs or lower. That will give it a power to weight ratio thats approximately .2 hp per pound.

Heres some more recent pictures since ive gotten it on the road. It is not tuned yet, just running on a base map to wear in the engine before i take it to the dyno. I will be getting it tuned soon through Morgan at Synapse Turbo in New York... Great Place, great guys. Highly Recommended.
Here are some of the most recent pics..

Wiring isnt cleaned up yet, but it will be soon. Still have a few things to wire in, and plumb. But it starts and idles well as of now.
Mocal Oil Cooler custom setup, and my Bride digo type r seats Not replica's.
DEI Titanium Turbo Blanket for my GT30r
Seat layed down inside, not quite bolted in for good yet. External Tial wastegate rerouted back into the exhaust.
Customized AGP oil accumulator/catch can with internal baffles. Had to make another catch can below to catch extra. Agp's catch can was too small to baffle and hold any amount of oil from engine blow by.

Hooking up my horn was a little tricky, but not very difficult. Since you cant use the oem Spiral Cable with the Momo Hub, i got a piece of brass from a hobby shop and made it rub against the back of the steering wheel hub using a small but strong spring epoxied to the signal assembly. I've seen people do this without the spring but I by using the spring it makes sure theres always a good connection. the brass comes out the backside and a wiring connector slips on and can be soldered to a wire that leads to your Horn Relay.

As you can see i just used a piece of 16 gauge mild welding steel from the hardware store and bent it to fit, after making a cardboard template of course. I ordered some 2000 degree thermo-tec heat reflection adhesive backed tape that i will cover the outside of this with to ensure heat stays behind.

Garrett GT3076r Turbo Came in much earlier than expected. Going to 240sxmotoring.com tomorrow to pick it up!!!
May 6 2009
Haven't done alot since putting the body together, nothing worth noting on here anyways, but here's a few pics of somethings i never posted.
The gravity wheels didn't come with center caps, they were 125$ extra and they looked ehh. So i ended up finding a set of random center caps then color matched them to the wheels, clear coated the cap and in the picture above you can see im mocking up the nissan emblem from a nissan oem center cap. I realize the nissan isn't centered... i haven't secured it yet.
Knock off Greddy Manifold I had cut open to clean up the casting, port it, and then had my buddy weld it back shut nicely... with a q45 throttle body flange on it. Nismo Emblem for styling. Throttle Body is big enough to suck in a kitten.
Here's a shot of my car with some Work wheels (19x11") that my buddy had on his G35 and is now selling for 3000$ for the set. Just trying them on to see how 11" wheels fit on the rear.... I think i can go 12" for sure. I had some space on the inside and on the outer fender... looks good but i like my gold 18"s for now. These are NOT going on my car so Dont get confused.
April 25 2009 - Body parts!!!
April 19 2009 - Haven't worked on the car all winter... but now its springs and i'm looking to set it off. I finally finished painting everything today. The doors are now pink and once they dry and are wet sanded and buffed, i'll be able to install them and then proceed to install the front fenders, bumper, hood, headlights etc. Finally some progress.
Engine installed into the car still needing a few more things to make her complete.... some of the iphone pictures dont have the correct color as you will see for yourself they dont match the regular pictures.
Need to get black intercooler couplers, i hate the blue crap.
Still missing... gt30r, 850cc injectors, standalone apexi power fc, and seats... everything else s pretty much done. And of course the valve cover needs to be powdercoated black.
Trust Full Titanium Catback exhaust weighing about 40 lbs less than my factory exhaust
Updated 11/9/2008: Cylinder head torqued down, Brian Crower Cams installed.
Put in the rear 300zx Differential, and J30 Axles, Made E-brake Cables to adapt rear 300zx E-brake.
Update 10/23/08: installed my New Hid kit last week, got my brian crower valve springs and titanium retainers and installed them. My Cosworth 1.1mm headgasket also came in.
update: Just got my cylinder head back from the machine shop. Rob at Thunder performance (milford, ct) did a sweet job. He gave it a three angle valve job, new valve guides, plained it to check for warpage, and a gave it a good cleaning for 650$. He also ground down the tops of the valves so that they were all even, so that i wouldnt have to re-shim the head. I'll post some pictures of the head after this weekend.

Running brake lines inside the car
Making a new wiring harness for the headlights and signals because the main fuse/relay box is now in the center console inside the car. Not done yet in these pictures, but close. Also had to tuck the wires above the fender well so that the tires dont shred the harness when the coilovers are maxxed out.
almost bottomed out as far as the coliovers can go, cant wait to install the side skirts and shit... giggity giggity.
My Seibon Oem Style Carbon fiber hood arrived today... just placed on top, not installed yet.
Stance Solid aluminum subframe bushings... Picked these up from 240sxmotoring.com. Originally I ordered the Energy Suspension polyurethane complete replacement bushings. But from what i've heard/read/researched... in order to install them you must leave the metal sleeve from your stock bushings in your subframe. I cut out my old bushings so... those weren't going to work i guess.
I've had these stance gr+ pros sitting around for over a year.
Sunday July 6th... your having a party at the beach enjoying fireworks... but i was wetsanding and buffing my car... heres a camera phone pic of the passenger fender
Engine bay with the holes all welded up, windsheild wiper motor gone and welded up, A/C holes welded up also. Stitch welds on the strut towers also. a couple holes on the top right above the brake booster to run the brake lines through the rain tray.
un-boltable radiator support, allows for quick and easy engine removal. Did the same thing on my 95 Nissan pickup only this time i did it much cleaner looking and made the welds and tabs under the support. I cut a hole in the firewall, welded in a quarter pipe, so now you can use your tech deck mini skateboard in my engine bay... or if your a big turbo, and you wanna get your cool on, this air duct will aid your cooling like lemonade.
Thats me standing in a cloud of overspray of clearcoat.
I just threw one of the wheels in the fender to see what it would look like. Theres not subframe on the car so obviously its gunna look different then it does shown here.
24 hours till paint... super psyched
Checking some fitment and figuring out the side skirts and rear bumper fitment with the wider fenders.
Fenders all fared, and high build primered, next step is to guide coat and block sand everything smooth with 400>600grit. Keep checking back, this car should be Pink by the end of May.
