    long time no update

    So was on the lookout for a TD06 or similar after availability / Prices scared me off this came up

    [​IMG]

    arrived nicely snug fitted on a pallet

    [​IMG]

    This came out of a ps13 from Japan suspected melted piston (blowing oil out the dipstick),Wont know for sure until I strip it

    Schhhpec

    Power Enterprise / IHI pe1420 Turbo
    braided oil and coolant lines
    4 branch & Downpipe
    Tomei pon cams 2525lb is stamped on them
    nismo 550cc injectors
    s15 pistons

    Got the ECU to go with it aswel (revs out to 9200:confused: ) but will probably go nistune / power fc to be safe

    So will either replace the fucked piston or swap the bittom end depending if a ring broke up and scored the cylinder or not either way should be a healthy responsive engine Basically the same set up as Risky devil 180sx :afro:

    » Risky Devil 180sx | 180sx.co.uk - S13 ground zero

    Also have

    Orc 409 series clutch
    Nismo 2 way GT pro LSD
    Cusco adjustable anti roll bars
    nice medium sized Greedy fmic

    Going to reeef the gammy front half of the cage out which has been the ruination of the original dash oh well
    Replacing with full or half cusco dash dodger which I have just not sure yet to go full or half..

    Jimmy dont change the ecu mate its awesome whatever the wee japs did with it! Ran 360+ bhp, and hits like Mike Tyson back in the day, I'd at least run it with that ecu.............. ya mite like it. Good to see it arrived safely :-), if ya are going pfc or nistune keep that ecu and put nistune into another standard brain, will be hard to get a map as good.

    So havent updated in a while so here goes

    After failing miserably to find a decent 1/4 took into some repair work all the lines need to be reformed and alot of finishing this is where its at in some spots the was 1 inch of filler and I could put my hand behind the light ! sweet so with minimal body work skills went at it looking good so far..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    few weeks on plans changed on stock 1/4's unfortunately

    So been tipping away at this past while not making much headway but not in any rush

    accomplished a few things the past few weeks learned new tricks & Bought a few things

    Engine stand,compressor,TE37's Origin Press line fenders tools etc etc..started welding cutting and getting a bit out of my comfort zone all learning I suppose with the attitude of it must be done.

    some pics of whats going on and how plans have changed and gone with fenders rather than trying to make a 1/4 panel.

    [​IMG]

    Quick one of the new stand going to use the cams turbo injectors etc off this engine then rebuild it as a spare.


    [​IMG]

    Some new wheels 17x9 et15 Te37's (Cheers Rich *Hudson*)

    [​IMG]

    Fenders arrived from Japan Genuine Origin was trying to get them through Drift2 since November 2012 so that was a slight piss take when I got them from Japan in 2 weeks for less cost!

    [​IMG]

    quick mock up

    [​IMG]

    checked out how 326 would look with stoock kit and fenders undecided

    [​IMG]

    Gave this craic a go all welded up now nothing too stressful just a bit iffy taking the grinder to the quarter

    Thats about it for now ordered rivnut to do secure the quarters and have to weld on a strip of sheet between the quarter and overfender.

    So All rubbed down primed,repaired bumper,bonnet,bootlid

    Painted the roof,doorjams and in around bootlid turned out ok second time round its black and shiney . Then of course disaster as always compressor decides to pack up when doing the wet top coat on the doors and quarters so works at a stand still! Wonderful!

    In better news got my TE37's repaired wheel doctor done a serious job turning a pair of decent TE's into a full set of 6 17x9 et12 or 15 unsure.

    [​IMG]

    This was one wheel before will get pics up later but its good as perfect now
