    Hi,i'm just getting into drifting and my dad just bought me this,call it my early christmas present.
    Will be building it up slowly and progress with it as my driving/drifting gets better.so to start with i will be doing basic drift mods to get me going.
    Any way here it is.last owner had it a couple of months and did a couple of things,not very well i might add.but when he got it it was completely standard.
    Ok so what he done,rasid the back of the bonnet,boost gage,manual boost controller,cut the springs,horrible pedal cover things,stupid subrau spoiler(held on with wood screws)and bodged on a back box.thats about it.
    So far i have had a hunt round my dads stuff and found a front strut brace,fitted! cusco tention arms,momo steering wheel(needs a boss).Bought a cat back exhaust from ebey for £40 and my dad and me fitted that yesterday:)
    Got some pictures of the car but the ones on my phone i carnt get off yet but will up date as i go.
    forgot to say we had to turn the springs round on the rear as the guy before cut the bottom of the springs and not the top,so when we jacked it up the springs fell down.little unsafe i think.....

    Yeah bonnet will be sorted,not my doing. at the mo its a ca,want an SR in it as sr is the best for an s body,but my dad has a spare rb 25 with all the bits except turbo and box.so from my point of view the cheepest option is to drop the RB in and see how it goes.

    Ok,so nothing has moved on with the S13 and my dad was offered an R32 cheap, so he bought it and said that we are going to build this instead,so the S13 is for sale and the R32 will take its place,and i'm very happy with it.Took a few pictures.
