R32 Skyline 1UZFE track/drift build Hi, Some of you may remember this amazing R32 build by Bryn; http://www.driftworks.com/forum/drift-car-projects-builds/10564-taff-tune-r324.html It was never completed unfortunately, and around the end of 2010 was sold as a shell. Apparently kicked around for a few years in various lockups, until initial_j sold it about a year ago; http://www.driftworks.com/forum/dri...75-caged-tubbed-r32-shell-1jz-conversion.html This was just after I joined the Driftworks forum. I've had an MGB project on the go for years but wasn't really going anywhere. Ever since seeing the 980bhp 'one-eyed jap' R32 feature in Max Power in the mid-90s, I'd wanted an R32. I saw this, and had to have it. The shell has had so much work, and pretty much ready to go. So a deal was struck, and a short time later the shell was tucked up under covers in my back yard, where it has been ever since. Over the last year I have been buying parts for it with the aim of getting it rolling so I could get it in the garage. Bought a complete S14 rear subframe from Floyd with full Driftworks arms, they needed new paint so rather than blast and powder coat, I stripped them myself and gave them 2 coats of acid etch, 3 coats of gloss black and will be laquering them soon. Only pics I have; I didn't want to start a build thread with just a bare shell, until a lot of the parts had been bought, and also an engine sourced. I'm a V8 man, so the logical choice was either a 1UZFE 4.0 or BMW 4.4 - well today I took delivery of a very tidy LS400, 122k miles. Seems a shame to break it but meh. Going to take me a while to strip it down, want to use the wiring loom as well if possible. Will be keeping the auto gearbox for the moment so I can get it running, and save for a manual conversion, probably a BMW 5 speed getrag. Parts that I currently have so far; S14 rear subframe, DW solid offset bushes DW rear camber, toe, traction rods, adjustable lower arms (need refurb) S13 modified front subframe, S13 steering rack with Superpro bushes, S13 steering column New DW front tension rods, new adjustable lower arms CUSCO Rear Anti Roll Bar with new links & poly bushes 5 stud hubs F&R S14 uprights with new rear Superpro bushes Z32 rear brakes (reconditioned), hand brake and S14 cables/lever complete S13 Tein coilovers with Tein adjustable camber plates R33 VLSD 4:1 rear diff and driveshafts GTR aluminium bonnet GTR style vented carbon front wings GTR style +30mm rear overfenders GTR rear bumper GTR style front fibreglass bumper (not arrived as yet) Carbon/kevlar deep bucket seat & rails (Status Ring GT I think) Momo drift steering wheel Sparco 60mm spacer Mountney collapsable steering boss DW TRS 4 point harness Wilwood 0.7 & 0.75 brake master cylinders with brake bias Custom twin chamber aluminium brake reservoir Aluminium header tank, braided lines Jaz plastic breather tank with AN lines & valve cover fittings 20l aluminium foam-filled fuel cell with sender 1 litre fuel swirl pot Sytec lift pump, Sytec main pump, billet Sytec filter Aeromotive FPR AN6 fittings throughout Think that's about it for now! Spent a wedge since xmas and the LS400 has cleaned me out for the time being, but watch this space!! Hope you approve!
