My s14a build up

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


Since im spending most my time sitting on this site (instead of uni work lol) from now on thought id throw up my car and start a thread. Bought a shell about 3 months ago as a project and slowly started building it up over the next 2 months. This was my first proper build never having pulled an engine out before. I'll post more details of the build as soon as i have some more time. Plenty of blood, sweat, and tears pain haha really men dont cry, have been put into my new love. Makes me appreciate the car alot more building it up rather than buying one done, well worth the effort by the end and recommend others to give it a crack if you can then you'll know the feeling i have everytime you see it. Big thanks to some good mates who helped me along the way, my missus for putting up with my bitch'n when things didnt always work out and my bro for helping with costs when my broke student ass couldnt even afford bargain parts that popped up lol. Havn't chosen a name for it yet although the missus likes earnie, i like angry more :) dayummm those sexy BUT angry eyes

Thanks. Its currently making 195kW @ 14 PSI. Went in to East Coast Customs 2 weeks ago to dyno it and check everything was running smoothly. When trying to put more boost throught it we had a slight knock so left it at a safe figure, the ecu was chipped and tuned in japan for this build and over here we're not able to tune those boards from what i understand . Need to get a nistune and get it tuned for our 98ron then put some more boost through it. Would be very happy with a figure of 230 kW perfect for a fun streeter IMO
