    Tow wagon acquired! After looking at scrap over priced trailers and the hassle of getting a trailer licence and buying a jeep this idea made much more sense . Now just to get the car finished

    Haven't tried it marc..

    Today was a day of gauge fitting what a pain in the hole.

    Started off with a not working oil temp defi so stripped it to try find the problem with no luck so I resorted to splitting an inlet pressure gauge and changing the setting at the back to work as a temp gauge then fitted the temp face and voilla she worked.

    Some pics below

    Tried to fire up the transit no go flat batter..Stuck it on charge and in the mean time fluted around and done some general tidy up on the ps. Tranny started loaded up the ps and headed for town . More hardship in the form of getting it on the ramps of the tyre place to do alignment go tit done and head back home .. Test spin went down well with a burnout to finish off.

    90% done

    So Today was balls out with a good dose of mayhem!

    Busy road test with cyclist and general Saturday drivers being in the way on the roads.

    Got a dose of new tyres and went through the ballache of putting them all on many curses and shouting was done

    [​IMG]

    Yokohama Advan Neova's I used on front for steering and LingLongs on the rear :D..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    A load of general looking over the car was done all loose ends tightened up all fluids etc checked for leaks

    [​IMG]

    So this is how were looking after a wash

    [​IMG]

    After a year of Saturdays and the odd evening its ready for the first Test/ Drift day on Monday

    Sound Teaser all the complaining people do about SR's I love the sound of this

    Then lifted the bonnet to find masses of oil spewing out the breather set up. We Tried many different routes to get rid of the problem with some success towards the end with a make shift Orpheus that Bob Stevens suggested . Kind of ruined the day wit the thoughts of oil spewing out of the catch (bottle) and fearing harm being done it was tough to enjoy a couple of hard laps.

    Once home I checked a bit more into it and found non VVT SR20's running higher boost can suffer oil coming up from the crank case so I modified the breather set up to match the s14 style.

    Fingers crossed !

    Thanks to GTRslider,Danny86,Bob Stevens and Jay from DI Motorsport for helping out during the day. I would have been gone home allot earlier only for these lads

    I dont know if its possible to see these vids but try the links

    Fucking badass dude! Such a sweet looking PS, too many people go over the top with styling but not this one :)

    With that breather problem, would that be why some people make S13.4 rocker covers with VVT back half with a Non-VVT front?

    Cheers mate my whole Idea of this car is to maintain some originality . Sick of all these space frame cars people do and then just use them at drift days ?? Fair enough if its formula D. Yea that would indeed be the reason for the rocker cover cut and shut jib what iv done is just easier . and I like the stock red cover
