You might want to disconnect the drive shaft. I know its not an auto, but I still have heard some rough stories.


Sounds like a really fun trip.

when do you plan on getting in to town to pick up the car?
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: 200sxkitcar on 02:04:33 AM / 29-May-08
Definitely disconnect the driveshaft, its four easy bolts, should be 12mm wrench for the center bolts and 14mm wrench for the bolts at the differential, and if its not a manual then you'll need a long screwdriver or the lug wrench with the pointy end to jam in the driveshaft u-joints to prevent them from spinning while you are loosening.  Only use a regular wrench, ratcheting wrenches won't fit.  The differential bolts are the ones that you should remove, then bring some tie wire with to tie the driveshaft up out of the way.

Yeah Im sorry I wouldnt have been able to show it to ya anyways during the week I live in greensboro, NC with some friends but on the weekends Im in Goldsboro. The shop where you picked up the s12 (aka Corky) is right down from mine where my car is. its not much to look at right now its filled with parts and has no motor. you could hae seen the cage at least thats about it.

You disconnect the driveshaft so you don't fuck up the trans.  Too late now, hopefully its not a problem

Too bad jaidedeye sold his 12. But atleast it went to another cs12 member. Interior looks kinda rough but overall the body looks pretty straight. And the black dash is a big plus.

how do i releive the timing belt tension?
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: bluke1 on 06:52:40 PM / 29-May-08
its in that book, the tensioner is located by the water pump. you need a star headed wrench or socket. loosen the star bolts and that relieves the tension. the book will also tell you how to set the tension when you put the belt back on...
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: David B on 07:12:02 PM / 29-May-08
the book says that there is bolts, but i cant really get the loose,

hmm.i spin the bolts left? take them off.
do i do anything before that?

Post by: mr200t on 07:50:53 PM / 29-May-08
ladies and germs theres no need to disconnect the shaft. neutral position works just fine. i towed an auto notch from philly a while back with the prndl in n the whole way. 80s tech isnt that far advanced, remember! lol way to go on the pick db. good luck
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: bluke1 on 08:26:29 PM / 29-May-08
i know you like pics, so here it goes (my motor is a ca20e, not sure if that is what you have, but same principal for most tensioners)

star head wrench

(http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/jj29/bluke1/DSC02218.jpg)

loosen both bolts (counterclockwise, or if your english, anti-clockwise) loosen both a couple turns, do not need to remove either bolt completely

(http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/jj29/bluke1/DSC02216.jpg)

(http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/jj29/bluke1/DSC02221.jpg)

that will relieve tension on belt. the fsm says to reinstall you need to align the belt and rotate the motor a couple turns and then retighten both bolts, which will set the correct tension.

ALRIGHT,
UPDATE*********************************************


by myself, and my premature mechanic brain,
i took out the whole intake blah blah
i managed to put on the timing belt, first time changing one (i hope i did it right, it took forever), i bought a brand new one

got all those pulleys back on together,
and, find a battery (relocating it to back)



and TIGHTENED ALL THE SPARK PLUGS, they were all super lose! im so happy i check,
which jaidseye said "they were fine" lol


and i hooked up all the spark plugs and ignition coils


tomorrow, im throwing in some SUPER cheap oil and a oil filter, just to start it, and watch it leak all that oil out probally lol
i gotta find all th disconnected vaccum lines, and connect them




REDROCKET< JAIDSEYE> READ THIS

let me know if i need to look out for anything! im attempting to start this tomorrow,
and you guys are somewhat familiar with das car
alright
goodnight!

EDIT****

question,
does it matter what battery i use?



i have my moms old exploerer sportrac battery because it was kinda dying...

will it work?
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: Julie on 12:25:25 AM / 30-May-08
did you check the timing before u installed the belt? i think u have to set the engine to TDC, then rotate the camshaft to a certain point BEFORE installing the belt
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: David B on 12:31:39 AM / 30-May-08
my nieghbor, i met him today for the first time, and asked him, he hd all the tools i didnt have

we set the lines, to what his book said, and tried to get it right

im SUPER worried about it
but regardless,
i just want the CA20 so i dont have to tow it when i move....
i am saving for a KA regardless. but it would be nice too run

and BTW where do i plug in the aftermarket rad fan?
the power wire is loose
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: jaidedeye on 12:59:35 AM / 30-May-08
david. the timing marks have to line up at TDC. before you crank the car make sure you turn the motor over by hand.

if you followed the FSM i gave you then you should be ok. also make sure your distributor is stabbed correctly.

sorry about the plugs being loose. i never checked them but i know redrocket changed all that stuff when he had the car before me

well the guy is way more car smart then me, im pretty sure its set right, i did turn it by hand with the plugs out
he has a 7 second 5.0 mustang btw

stabbed correctly.? explain

make sure you distributor is timed correctly with the corresponding cylinder. simply installing it doesnt mean its correct

example: if the motor is at #1 TDC then install the distributor with the rotor pointed at the #1 position on the cap

yeah that does make it easier to rotate but not required

just take your time with the car man. i admire your wanting to get the car running asap but if you arent to sure about what you are doing then you might want to throttle back a bit. there are plenty of people on this forum that can help you out.
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: David B on 01:14:38 AM / 30-May-08
alright, i agree.

can someone explain these positions?

i kinda remember where the yellow marks are set,

i used the little line on the top of the red cover for the top one, and the bottow one, that little kink, is aimed upwards,

and the lines on the belt, fit perfectly with that

the timing mark you need is on the crank pulley.

the way i always do it is this way:

take the valve cover off, crank the motor over until TDC is reached on the crank pulley. keep cranking it until both the intake and exhaust valves are closed on the #1 cylinder. at that point the TDC mark should be lined up on the crank pulley. install the distributor in the #1 plug wire position.
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: David B on 01:24:38 AM / 30-May-08
see thats what i dont get
the number one plug position wire?
and closed number one cylinder?


and for setting the belt....
what about that metal tab, that comes out of the timing bbelt cover
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: jaidedeye on 01:31:45 AM / 30-May-08
the number one plug position wire? #1 cylinder position on the distributor cap.. you have two plugs per cylinder but its the same idea. the FSM will show you exactly where it is.

and closed number one cylinder? both valves will be closed at TDC (springs not compressed)

and for setting the belt....
what about that metal tab, that comes out of the timing bbelt cover.. the tab on the lower cover is for checking timing against the crank pulley. there are notches in the crank pulley

as i change plug position
does rotating the ditribitor do anything?


should i take the ditributor off, and try again.

should i do timing belt again (i really do not want too)


and, to reach TDC (top dead center),
cant someone just tell me where the yellow mark chills?


im real sorry for being retarded
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: bluke1 on 06:00:42 PM / 30-May-08
the fsm has drawings as well as text that describe perfectly what you need to line up. the cam gear has a dot on a tooth that a corresponds with a line on the timing belt. the second line on the timing belt corresponds with a mark on the crank pulley. there are multiple well drawn pics in the fsm that show this. in the last page of the engine overhaul heading in the engine mechanical section of the fsm, it show a picture of a mark on the distributer and says turn camshaft until no 1 piston is at tdc on compression stroke (both valves closed) align dist. gear mark advanced by one tooth with mark on the dist. shaft.
   if you read the book carefully, and look at the supplied drawings, it should be very simple. you make your motor/distributer look like the one in the pictures. its much easier than you make it out to be. and it wouldnt hurt you to read a book on basic automotive principals so you get a better understanding of things like top dead center, firing order, and electrical operation to name a few.

so i dont really care about the garage

QUESTION,
switching to KA24DE

what will that do with automatic doors, and the voice, and all that stuff?
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: mod_mastaz on 06:02:09 PM / 31-May-08
The engine harness does not deal with the talking lady and power windows etc. The KA24DE swap is pretty straight forward. Wiring isn't that hard. I guided turbo_s12 through his ca18det wiring and he had very little issues. It's approximately 15 wires to splice and solder. If you want me to make you a plug-n-play conversion harness, goto the junkyard and get the S12/S13 connectors I need to do it(+ something extra) and I'd gladly do it. You can be my first test mule for it hehe. I was going to do this for my car, BUT I couldn't get 18ET engine connectors(20e ones are different).

Not necessarily. The wiring is pretty much out there. All you really need to get is an S13 KA and the harness will plug right in haha. But I mean if you wanna tackle it yourself go for it. I'll prob try making a conversion harness and testing it out on another car later then hehe. Go and fix up both cars first hehe.

disconnect downpipe, unbolt engine mounts, disconnect water lines, pull wiring harness through after disconnecting it from the ecu, disconnect fuel lines, remove shifter assy, unbolt transmission cross member, remove carrier bearing from the driveshaft and pull drive shaft out of the back of the tranny, hoist engine up off of engine mounts, make sure all wires and hoses are disconnected, hoist up higher, pull forward, hoist higher, pull forward, hoist higher and have someone step/push down on the back of trans and jack it up until it clears the core support/radiator...complete engine removal guide lol...do it in semi-that order

i would rather end up buying a new one for this car,
plus i had to drain the fluid anyway

the drain bolt for the trans fluid should be on the bottom of the trans right smack dab in the middle of it, it hold about 4-5 quarts of 80w90 and watch out make sure all of it gets in the bucket because since its an s12 its prolly really old fluid and itll smell like absolute shit, but you just need a 1/2 inch drive ratchet to take it loose...oh AND you prolly need a breaker bar so you have some leverage

Someone else moved it, not me  

Just start disconnecting everything.... you won't be reusing lots of it, so disconnect anything connected to the engine.

Do you have a hoist yet?

Oh hey are you gutting your interior? If you wanted to sell that carpet I'd buy it.

no, the interior is just basically pulled apart. (i dont have seats rememeb)
and
the carpet, BTW. isnt even stock carpet, jaidseye made it himself i think, and it fits damn good, i just have to cut out a few more pieces to completely fit around the bolt

and NO i wont sell it! i need carpet!
the hoist is the problem,
i need to find a friend with one,
ill buy one someday,
but not now.
i just want the engine OUt

so
lets see what happens

u dont NEED a hoist, if yuo drop the engine out the bottom of the car. basically, you remove the subframe and lower it on a jack to the ground.

^ what he said, i had the motor out and had to swap my front crossmember and it was a bitch and a half with no weight, i can only imagane what kind of trouble it would of been with a motor and all. just get your own cherry picker, they are not that expencive depending on where you shop, i got mine from a tool sale for about a $100, its a good investment regardless to have your own tools that you can use whenever you need instead of useing someone elses when its convenient for them, trust me i thought my swap was going to be quick and painless, i would of been borrowing someones tools for 2 years now had i not bought my own

that could be very usful for someone who doesn't own a hoist though. my automotive teacher had to do that once. his miata blow a motor (completely shot) he got some dollie or some shit with tires and replaced the motor that way... he put his miata near a tree and dropped the motor in from the tree using the tree as a hoist. Lol

crazy things he use to do lol

omg lol, i would never trust wood to do metals job...weird...i wouldve been scared shitless that the branch wouldve broken...but regardless, once you get the engine out youre going to havta have someone help you rock that bitch off of the cross member, and then back on again...which...risks damage to the oil pan and what have you...but regardless...its your choice dude...do what makes you happy

since my hosue is going into forclosure,

the house has a I BAR right above where the car sits,

i was thinking maybe i could just buy a winch, and bolt it on,


i mean FORCLOSURE, meaning, it doesnt matter what happens to the house, the bank is taking it

Thats probably not strong enough to handle the engine.

EDIT:  You mean I beam, ok, that might be good enough.  Regardless,

You sure as shit wouldn't want to get it halfway out, and then have it come down on the car.  It could fuck it up pretty badly.  Be worse if you happened to be in the way...

The hoist would have to be secured to the I beam really, really well.

If you purposely damage the house, they can come after you, not that its likely tho

the house isnt forclosing on my mom.
its forclosing on the rentor who disapeered

so,
no one wouldn know  

it is an I beam

sorry,
its the beam connected to the POLE in the middle of the garage,
it goes all the way across the cieling,
i can see where they painted over it


but honestly,
thats where my room is.
and i dont want my bed on my car

so ill prob wait on the move/unless i get a hoist

you'll leave the vacume canster alone as well as the power stearing lines, basicly anything you disconect will have a counter part on your new motor that will have to be reconected, a feed and return line for just about everything, just label everything if that helps and take your time, read any nissan swap guide you can get your hands on, there all basicly the same. the sr20det into s13 swap guides that the tuner and project car mags. did helped me a buntch with getting the basic idea of how nissan does things

alright,
i got sick of not being able to find a hoist,
and im obviously impatient,
so i decided to get some BRAIN

i attempted removing the transmission, plus it will make it easier to pull the engine right?
and... my trans is going out, so i might as well learn how to pull one, and replace another...


SO

success!

there is another piece to the driveshaft

you could peice out the motor part by part until you just have the cylinder block (without the pistons) in the car then you can have someone help you take it out manually like that. plus it'll give you a chance to learn alot of cool stuff along the way.

yea that also came into mind
this whole process is hard learning all by myself

but
i might as well wait till i move, which is in literally 24 days
i already have like a bunch of parts that i have to move, other then the car


because im not throwing away the CA20E
im keeping it, just in case my CA20E in my other car breaks something.


OH YEA
and the house im moving into....
HAS A MASSIVE 2 DOOR GARAGE.

Dude, its one in the morning.  Not many people are on right now  

OK, you know the wires you took off the engine? Not the spark plug wires, the ones that went to the sensors?  Follow that bundle of wires.  Its going to go to the firewall, down by the driver's side strut tower, to underneath the airbox (by the coils and stuff).  Start removing the wiring.

There is going to be two or three connectors (THE ONES THAT WILL GET USED WHEN YOU SWAP IN THE NEW MOTOR) that connect the engine harness to the chassis harness.  Unplug those.

NOW the wiring loom goes into the fender, and up and over the wheel well plastic, and into the passenger compartment, where it connects to the ECU.  Unplug the computer, and remove the rest of the harness.

NOTE you don't have to take off the fender, you can remove the fender liner (the plastic thing) inside the wheel well, and snake it out thru there.

This is the EFI harness, or engine harness, whatever you want to call it.  You DO NOT need it if you are going to go with a different engine (a KA, for example).

DO NOT REMOVE THE GREEN. That is the chassis side of the ecu power/relay harness. The pink looks like the engine harness. Are those injector clips on it? If so take that out. Do not cut anything and don't break the clips that plug into the chassis side.

EDIT: The engine harness goes along the driver side, not passenger like the S13/S14s.

Dude, you've got to read what I wrote, all that info was there for the harness.  The red shit that *connected to the engine* is whats going, because you aren't going to put that *engine* back in.  Don't cut anything, just unclip it all and pull it out.  Go back over that post and follow those directions to get the rest of it out.

For cleaning your engine bay, I HIGHLY recommend this product http://www.gunk.com/CAT_FEB1.asp (http://www.gunk.com/CAT_FEB1.asp)  follow the directions on the can, have some sort of scrub brush, and your engine bay will turn out like this:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v216/arrospeed/S12_Tech/cleaned_bay_01.jpg)

with a little bit of paint.  ANY paint really will do, high temp isn't particularly necessary,

I super like Rustoleum brand, and Krylon is good too.  Pretty much any of their selection will do you well, as long as it isn't the cheaper shit.

Dupli-color is fine as well, you know the stuff at Autozone or wherever that is for matching up a car's color 100% factory.  Those paints are good too.

Looking good so far!

hey i use foamy engine bright on my dirt bike when i had it,
its at AUTOZONE i think

but honestly,
i wanna skip the paint.
maybe a touch up,
but w/e im not trying to look really pretty,
just mostly GUNK free.

yea dude ima get some of that soon

what part of the mounts do i use for the KA24DE?

like what do i save?
i saved almost all my bolts off evrything too
i labled them

(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/cleaned_bay_01.jpg)

the green,
that old thing.

if i dont want AC and extra crap (i just want power steering)
can i plug it?
and rip it out?
or not

what do i do?

Post by: 200sxkitcar on 09:37:31 AM / 28-Jun-08
Yeah, gunk free will make it look loads better at least.  Tho, fix any rust caused by the paint coming off (look by the brake master cylinder if its leaked, they almost always do).  Touch up is really all I meant, if you take a look closely at that pic, thats actually all I really did, it came that clean.  The only paint is under the BMC and the trans tunnel (its more shiny, checks it out)

The KA stuff:  you are going to use the metal bracket thats attached to the KA engine, and the rubber mounts (the actual motor mounts) that were used with the KA engine.

You can remove the stuff that goes thu those holes in the firewall, thats the AC stuff.  Note how on that car, it has those plugs, because that S12 was never equipped with A/C.  On my car, I just cut the lines, and the owner after me filled them with black silicone to seal up the holes.

Very good move bagging and marking the bolts.  This is the best thing you can do, really.  Organization will make the difference whether your project will get done or not

yeai was thinking about just wire brushing,
then sanding,
and adding some blue generic touch up paint over it.

so,
i take the rubber mounts off my car,

and instead of using silicone for now,
ill just CUT the line, and like crimp it together,
then some metal tape or something for now.



i have another problem.

when i leave the car out in the rain.
it leaks.
into the car,
somewhere up front,
it comes down the side of the trans tunnel. and under the carpet,

what can i block on the exterior to stop this?!?!?!

i just dont want the carpet to get ruined....
so for now the car has to avoid the rain at all costs.
i cant stand mildew smells

the first looks like a condenser of some sort I would say a/c but your car didn't have it the second it defiantly the charcoal canister it is emission device I didn't have it on my old turbo and it ran....not well (start up and 3k rpm) it did that 3k thing for other reasons never found out what though but it ran if you delete it cap off the lines heck if you remove it remove all the emissions stuff

came from the wall,just wopndering if it is needed afeter swap


that charcoal emissions thing.... would i get this with a KA24DE.

Thats an engaging conversation.

I went to respond to your thread yesterday, and it killed my computer.

You can re-use that black, round canister (pic #2) with the KA.  The KA probably won't have the canister with it, but just hook up the KA's hoses to that one (they are long enough, the correct size too).

The A/C stuff, the condensor (finned radiator looking thing) and the receiver/dryer (round canister), can definitely be removed, seeing as you have no ac.

ENGINE BAY IS LOOKING VERY SHARP   Good job there!

You can take the rubber engine mounts off your car then, yes.  You will need to use KA ones, whether they come with your engine (but may be broken) or get new ones, will depend on what you get with the engine.

However you want to cap the old A/C lines where they go into the firewall is up to you.  What you can do, is disconnect them by loosening the nuts, remove the lines, and then take balloons and use that to seal up the tubes.  I did this, and it was cool.  lol.

For your water leak, what you need to do is this.  Dry everything off real good.  Then, take a hose, with a spray nozzle, and GENTLY wet an area.  Look for leaks.  Repeat.  Try and find out where the water is coming from by looking to see where it drips/runs down/collects.  You may have to pull the carpet/other plastic shit out of the way to do this.  Sometimes it is helpful with more than one person.

its just hard to see,

oh yea and sterling,
the stand under the battery.
how did you get that off?
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: 200sxkitcar on 11:59:31 PM / 29-Jun-08
LOL I took a really big pair of pliers to it, and just tore the shit out of it- into little bits.  The intelligent way, easier, would be to get a drill and drill out the spot welds that hold it in.  But, yeah.

Are you going to be putting the battery somewhere else?

Isn't it amazing how much shit is in the engine bay when you go to clean it?

You could toss the mounts, keep them, throw them at someone, doesn't really matter I suppose.

The A/C lines go to something called the Evaporator, its like a Heater Core (if you've ever seen one of those).
Basically, the heater core has hot water (the engine coolant), and it heats up the air, and the evaporator has the refrigerant, that cools down the air.  Its small, and aluminum, so it can't weigh that much.  Its ok to leave, really.

You really have to take some shit apart to get it out.

Your leak, you might have to do just that.  But, look around, check it like I wrote (might not be a bad idea to take a pic of the leak/water coming in/where it streams from,etc) and maybe you won't have to tear out the dash.

Graphics man, pretty impressive.  Obviously you don't suck at it, so go for it!

im tossing the battery to the rear, plus, i dont even have rear interior anyways.

i like how arro's car has the coolant bottle under where the battery was, i would like to do the same,
(http://i25.tinypic.com/dmbcys.jpg)
and that battery stand is in the way

im looking for that headlight switch, that little black box, i broke mine. if anyone has it let me know!!


i dont have a drill YET, so im prob gonna hammer and ply away,
my genric blue touch up paint i find will get those scracthes hidden

ill leave the evaporator,
but thanks for the info, i always wondered about that,
ill get pics of the leak,

instead of putting water into my car,
ill draw it out where its coming from for now


my outlook is MINIMAL shit under the hood,
except for power steering of course,
and a few electric fans around

i might just use GREAT STUFF, to plug the holes,
plus i have many more holes to plug someday,
ill just wear gloves this time around


is it bad to clean the car with the wire harness unplugged like that?
will it damage the eletrical system?

The windshield washer bottle down there was my work, when you're ready, and if I haven't done a how-to yet, I'll send you a load of pics.

I'll keep an eye out for that black box for ya

I'm a huge fan of minimum shit under the hood too, think it looks so much better.

Arro's car was just a warm up for what I want to do with mine.

I'm not sure how well great stuff will work for those holes, that tends to get everywhere fast.

As long as you dry everything off good, it should be fine.  I would try and avoid soaking the wiring (although thats a bit difficult when you're cleaning like that) but if you've got a small air compressor you can always blow the water out of the connectors too.  Or use your mouth, if nothing else.

A drawing of your leak would be a start, but pics would be great as well....

yea when i cleaned the bay,

i pulled the car out of the garage into the sun, both times so far,

 

are you labeling your wiring?

because i kinda wanna get a keytag on EVERY SINGLE tip of the harness,

so

once i get my KA in,

its just plug and play wire wise....

 

 

is that possible?

Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: 200sxkitcar on 01:21:46 PM / 30-Jun-08
The sun will dry things out ok.

I rarely label my wiring anymore, I can lay the full harness on the ground and pretty much be able to tell what each connector does, but thats years of working with these cars that its gotten to that point, lol.  I highly suggest you label if you disconnect (even like A--A, B--B, etc).

The KA isn't quite plug&play in terms of the ECU connectors, although mod_mastaz and I have been discussing building a plug&play subharness adapter.  

Thing is, where the engine harness connects to the body,
On the S12, its on the drivers side,
On the S13/KA/SR/etc, its on the passenger side.

So you basically need to extend wires over there.

Its pretty simple tho.

The reason why quotes don't work in that one post is because *in one post* you are only allowed to quote a limited amount of times. I want to remove that but *I have yet to find out if it's possible*.

If you use a second post right after the first, it'll combine the two into one, so that won't work, but if you wait five mins or so, your next post will remain seperate and I imagine you can have a few more quoted parts in that one.

Ok, this one is good for "in the car", but honestly, I've owned a few different "starter kit" toolsets from Craftsman, and the one you need is indeed the 245-piece set:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v216/arrospeed/00934245000.jpg)

I'm being straight with you here when I say that I've used just about every tool piece it came with on my S12, with the exceptions being some of the SAE-specific sockets and wrenches.

The kit you bought is perfect for an in-car set (which you should ALWAYS have), but don't short yourself, get the 245-piece. All the shit you will end up needing to add will cost more than just buying this, including the many deep sockets you absolutely need. Plus the 245-piece comes with an additional deep drawer that can hold more pieces you can add to the set, and they have a couple other accessory areas in the other drawers.

UPDATE****

nothing latley,
i used another can, and started cleaning the bay up more,
its looking nice,


i started moving the garage, down the street to the new house,
people think im crazy! haha, my mom has the truck, and i dont have one, so i have to use my 4 wheeler/trailer to get stuff to my house while shes gone...

so im like rolling down the street in my quad with a CA20, some fenders, a hood, and some random parts. lol,
the nieghbors at the new house probally think all i drive is a 4 wheeler....

ill be moved within a week,
and after july 15th (warped tour/beach)
ill be back to the drawing boards saving money,


i have a question,
about the KA24DE,
for the swap,


i need
1. custom driveshaft... which is s13 front/S12 lengh..??
2. cut trans tunnel, to fit S13 tranny,
3. what about the S13 mounts... how do they go on?
i dont know much abut what else ill need for the swap,

i need to know,
whats NOT bolt on, what i need to get customly done.
what i need to get welded.... what i should start investing in..

and my other outlook is a rollcage, most deff for me, as going to my first drift event, watching a car flip in person for the first time!
(pics from that day)


i dont want to end up like that!  

so im kinda torn between a ENGINE, and a rollcage,
because, honestly, i should learn more about the KA, before i get my hands on it and break something...
i found, http://www.pipermotorsport.com/services.asp (http://www.pipermotorsport.com/services.asp)
check em out
piper motorsports... i talked to the guy, and im getting an estimate on a 4 point cage, 4 point its deff enough for me
there located near me, and they got some cool stuff. awesome shit, i never thought i would actually be looking this kinda of stuff.

ill be getting an estimate in an email soon

Post by: Arro on 10:37:14 AM / 09-Jul-08
Answer to question #3: For the engine, the S13 motor mounts just bolt right in, but for the trans, you're going to have to modify the crossmember. You'll probably have to do something like what's pictured in my thread or in Henry's.

Yes you do, but getting the engine and trans in first is the priority.

There is no question in my mind that you need to get your engine swap done first. If you have lots of money and time, and have experience racing or tuning cars, then doing it all at once might make more sense, but this is all very new to you. Get your engine and transmission in first, get it running, get your driveshaft solution, and drive the KA around for awhile before you get behind the wheel in a race or drift event. It would be foolish to think you're ready for the track.

Street driving your car for awhile gives you the chance to get used to the KA's quirks, get a feel for the car, and get familiar with it... like it's a part of you. After that, maybe do some auto-cross racing... it's safe, and it's going to teach you A LOT about suspension and handling, which is important even with drifting. Once you're comfortable with your car, and you've modified and tuned the chassis (strut braces, swaybars, etc) and the suspension (springs or coilovers or whatever, camber, etc), THEN you can start thinking about drifting.

Yes, there are guys out there who just get in their beater and drift it. But if you're worried about a cage, you haven't learned enough about your car. If you're doing something that can roll your car, then you need to tune the suspension and drive it more modestly until you have *control*.

I think Marvin said it best, "Power ain't nuttin' without control."

So get your engine in. Drive it. Tune the chassis and suspension. Do some auto-x. Then when you're *comfortable* with the way your car feels, take it up a notch.

Again, I don't really think you're in a position to worry about how many points the cage is, since you're in no skill level to even be pushing that car to those limits. And something to consider -- putting in a cage doesn't protect the car. It protects *you*. Most of the time, the car is quite capable of protecting you, even in a roll. The cage is nice for high-speed impacts, and for a sturdier chassis. But don't think that the cage protects the car! If you're worried you're gonna roll, then you're not ready to race. Period. Any impact that benefits from a cage is a *car killer*, and you'll be done. You'll have just spent all your money for nothing.

I just think you're coming at this wrong, that's all. You have a chance to build and learn on a good engine set, I'd rather see you enjoy it for awhile and then grow with it, instead of going into it balls-out and then out of a car.

I understand that. Let me put it this way... you should get it running *before* you worry about more advanced racing needs. That's pretty much it.

Hell, I'd have my KA boosted before I had a rollcage put in.

well after calling a few guys. and some references, i could get a "whatever" approved rollcage for like 400 bucks easy,

its just that, im gonna have troubble finding a decent KA., i would rather focus on suspension and such before my engine...

because to think about it, even if i got an engine now, it would be winter, before i ever even get the car started, therefor meaning i wouldnt be driving it as much, ya know?

Post by: Arro on 06:55:05 PM / 09-Jul-08
Except that tuning aftermarket suspension without the engine in is impossible.

I still think you should do engine first, but it's your car  $400 is enough to buy your engine and trans.

Oh, and $400 sounds awful cheap to me... emhpasis on both the "awful" and "cheap". I wouldn't trust a $400 cage. Is that installed? Or just some components?

Also, I don't trust a pre-made cage, I would want a shop to make it ON the car, so it fits right. I've heard countless horror stories of guys who plopped down anywhere from $600 to as high as $1400 and got something that when put together, it didn't even fit right.

It's just not worth it. You're worrying about cage and competition suspension before you even have it running. I still say get it running first.

Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: SprockCapn on 07:10:35 PM / 10-Jul-08
As far as cages go i would listen to ARRO. My friend ordered a pre-made roll cage that came in two pieces. When it got here we realized the people who built it must not have test fitted it. It had four sleeves that bolted the two pieces together.  When we went to put it together we had rubber mallets, long 2X4's a few people trying to stretch the connections just to fit. Needless to say it was not fun and i'm sure the neighbors thought we were crazy. we eventually had to get it most of the way and drill the holes a little better because the original holes did not line up, therefore losing some structural integrity im sure. Hopefully my long story about our experience helps you make your decision.

PS. Im jbjorndal on FA that has the same car as you.

i know its been a few posts, but (like always) arros advice is dead on. you should take your project in logical steps. first, get a motor and get the thing running. second, improve things like engine, suspension, and driver. third, (as arro stated) get used to the car your driving. get comfortable with it, go fast on the on-ramp to the interstate, find a twisty road, and feel out the car until its predictable. then start autocrossing, learn the car in a safe, but competitive environment. after that, you should be well prepared (and probably made a few connections) to get a cage and drift. THIS is the logical way to take your project. if you get impatient and skip steps, a year from now youll likely post 'i should have listened, arro!'  just some friendly advice- oh, and as far as cages are concerned, when you get to that step, post again, i have much experience in both bolt-in and custom cages.

i found a KA24E with a blown head gasket for 80 bux, but i want DOHC.
im looking. and looking. im in search of a SR swap shop, but there is NOYANUSA that i keep getting referred.
they close early, at like 5. so i always forget to call. i dunno, im being patient, because i have speeding tickets to pay. but yea, ive talked to so many people, and there like "i got my DOHC KA for like 2oo-300 bux, everything, then they did a simple rebuild. and BAM. why the hell cant it be that easy? it probally is, i just need to look harder. but yea. at least overall, i have some progress
you have to remember, im 17 years old. and before i got my first S12, i didnt know much about cars.
i have alot of learning to do. but because of this forum, and some friends, i think its still possible

i completely disagree.  The movie was actually really good, interesting plot lines, and he went outside his usual style and didnt make it have a TWIEEEST ending.

Plus, I got it on .avi format, so I didnt pay anything to go see it, and will never have to do so.

i know right? its just me and my mom now, so i get to fill it! i gotta stay organized lmao

i was exactly on that track too, but thinking 2.5, because i will do all the basic mods i can do, 2.25 sounds reasonable also though, will look into it, but after i have an engine sitting in the car




how much would it cost, to have a straight pipe/weld that muffler on? all the way to the header?



my mom, brought up getting me a welder, so i can stop taking my car to the shops. ill save money after a few welds...
so.
in winter, my mom, and my dad/ who doesnt live with me, are gonna hook it up.
so i also, need to get schooled on welding somehow, maybe NOVA (comminity colledge) does welding classes. im very interested

Generally, 2.4 and bigger does better w/ 3". Most of those setups come stock with 2.25 or even 2.5.

I'm gonna stick with my 2.5" system for now, but that's mostly for budget reasons.

Heard from several sources that 3" is best with KA, even stock.

Thats awesome if you get a welder, so many doors opened up with one, things you can do that you never considered before.

Recommend going over that thread that Julie started about welders she was looking at, and take those thoughts into account.  Might consider printing it out and showing your mom/dad.

PMd you regarding the stuff, we'll find it.

Careful with the basement not to unearth any bodies or anything.  thats a HELLA OLD house

If you simply lay the carpet right over the dirt, unless its real dry there, you might have mold issues with the dampness, so keep that in mind.  You should take pics of this place, it sounds cool.

Julie's thread has a lot of info, some of which will be more helpful when you actually go to look for one.

If you are interested in a particular model, you can start a thread or add it here, whatever, and we'll (or maybe just I lol) will give you our opinions on it based on your needs, level of skill atm, what you want eventually, etc.

Dirt floors aren't uncommon here in super old houses, but we don't have any that are THAT old, as my area wasn't settled until 1850+, and most of what was built back then burned down with regularity, so not much before 1900, actually.

i requested a NO CONTEST, on my plea, so the DMV would hopefully just restrict me for my 2 jobs

well, i ahve my liscense for now... but within a month it WILL, be gone, no question
eh,

could i drive a moped to work? on a restricted liscense..... in VA, you dont even need a liscense to drive one.... you just have to be 16 or something...

but since, i got my restricted... does that degrade me lower?

because, im about to buy a moped

Well,

I guess you'll find out, wont ya!

It could, change your status,

Actually, I would really find this out first, because if you got pulled over again while riding this thing w/o license and you need one, you could be in some pretty serious shit.

I've known people to lose their license until 21+, which I don't have to explain how much of a bitch that is.

Get friendly with co-workers, so you can get free rides

hmm, i really dont know what "cut pile" or "loop" is

im guessing... loop, is basically loops lmao
ill get a close up on it tomorrow for you


i hide the air tubes and stuff because im not using them... and it was too much to remove the tubes anyways, plus it looks cleaner


the carpet has that "unde capret carpet" pad thing glued to it too, its really nice +2537 for jaidseye

ill be able to have a decent 80's drift car, with a amazing interior, thats hard to find, and the lining and everything cleans REAL well, nice and smooth look, and i love the door panels, there so OG with the chrome trime haha


remember, i still gotta vacuum and wipe down
but basically EVERYTHING in the interior is , freshly died, or new

any recommended plug wires?

i did get duralasts, but ive had one already fail

when i drive, my car will kinda slightly hesistate


then when i foor it alot, the car will cut, and jerk, but still blast through through rpms.


are these sign of plug wires?
i hate ignition problems.

ive already replaced WIRES, COILS, PLUGS, ROTOR, ROTOR CAP, so. im gonna guess its the cheap duralasts

from autozone/advanced autoparts, what are reliable and not too expensive

Post by: 200sxkitcar on 02:03:03 AM / 16-Aug-08
I just tried ordering a set from Nissan, and the system kicked it out as no longer available.

I've seen these bright blue wires before on a couple CA20's, I think they were a good grade, but can't remember what exactly.

Go ahead David and start a thread in CA20 section asking about wires, and we'll collect some info and sticky it eventually.  It might get noticed more there than in here, and I'm wondering the same thing myself...

Post by: silverarrow27 on 06:41:43 PM / 17-Aug-08
What kind of spark plugs are you using? And if you want some nice oem grade plug wires...NGK wires are the best oem replacements. These are probably what Sterling is talking about...bright blue.
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: 200sxkitcar on 12:55:47 AM / 18-Aug-08
Thats probably it then.  I wonder what parts store you get them from, more research needed now...

I thought they were just some ebay or cheap thing, with the color and all.  Now I know I should have grabbed a set of the like 5 sets I've seen, lol

Post by: 200sxkitcar on 10:44:28 PM / 18-Aug-08
Hope its your wires and nothing else man.  Thats just a guesstimate, really.  You've got a friend that can give you a ride back in case of an issue, right??  Don't know about your rpms when you're doing this, but eventually that 20year old ca20 might let loose its headgasket while you're on it hard, you never know...

but, forgetting that shit, good luck!
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: David B on 11:38:22 PM / 18-Aug-08
i do have a ride back

if my rpms end up blowing a head gasket......... well ill get immidietly on my BLUE cars swap,

and if i ever complete that, then i will end up attempting it again with this car.
i am worried about blowing a gasket, but realize my CA20E really hasnt been pushed by anyone else other then me, my car was bone stock, no mods ever done to it and it sat a long while, the guy i bought it off of was my moms friend for many years

we will see what happens.

Post by: 200sxkitcar on 12:07:41 AM / 19-Aug-08
Yeah, as long as you have somewhat of a backup plan, and some $ in the bank for a tow, you're probably fine.  The ca's headgaskets tend to go as they get old, even if they weren't beat on.

Ever locate an engine for this project yet?  or still on the lookout?
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: David B on 12:09:55 AM / 19-Aug-08
im on the lookout

but NOTHING

i have guys that are like? your looking for a KA??? omg buy mine... i start talking, just to find out its a fucking singlecam

i want a DOHC engine. bottom line


like in the future, after this swap, and if i try it for my DD, then sure for single cam, but this blue S12, i want DOHC.

why the fuck do i have to pay over 700 bucks for a god damn ka? WHY. people pick them up for nothing on forums.... its pissing me off... im being patient... i am
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: 200sxkitcar on 12:26:36 AM / 19-Aug-08
Yeah man, I'd wait for a dohc.  Like you said, the sohc would be cool for dd, but to make good power, I'd be after a dohc.

Too bad you weren't closer, there are several local here, and I'm just unloading mine.  shippings not really an option for me, as I can't really move them that way.

you'll find something eventually, plenty of other work to be done with that thing in the meantime

i walked in casually.
i told the guy i drift, and i burn tires fast

soooo... i went out back, and GOLDMINE!!!
i even found good treaded falkens! but sadly they were 16s....


i managed to fit 10 goodyears int he back of my hatch
there all in the range of

p185-60-15r
and p195-65-15r
except i grabbed a set of 205 somethings because they had good tread



AND i got my plug wires, i asked around a few local shops, and i went to CHAMPS again, and they had my NGKs suprisingly, for 45bux

everyone here has FWD civis and integras... RWD isnt so popular, i see a 240 now and then but its just for show and no go.

yea they were free, the guy is kinda redneck, and plus i was coverd in oil and stuff so i guess thats the seal of approval!

I don't remember which of your two had the leak in the center, but I noticed this by chance whilst working on my beastie.

(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll291/cheetahblue/chassis/IMG_1075.jpg)
(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll291/cheetahblue/chassis/IMG_1146.jpg)
On the firewall, immediately behind the motor,more or less.  This is where the ridge is that seals together the parts of the firewall (there are actually three layers of metal at the outside joint there, you can only see two from up top)
(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll291/cheetahblue/chassis/IMG_1076.jpg)

so thats like directly underneath the metal tag.

Unfortunately, you would have to take all the dash and HVAC stuff out to see this part.

But you can test it from the outside of the car by lightly spraying water along that seam to see if you have any leaks.

It may be hard to see up in there with the hood on tho.

checkz it iout

Post by: 200sxkitcar on 02:59:31 AM / 06-Sep-08
Problem is tho, there likely won't be a complete hole, rather the seam will just be perforated enough to allow moisture thru but not light.  You can try the light thing, but the leak would have to be fairly major to see light thru.  If you take off the plastic grates over this area and look down with a light and mirror you may be able to see something.

Nice man, more free tires  

On that dent, you might want to ask Joe (shift_love) who is pro bodyman, he might have some good advice on how to deal with that.

I would imagine the parts stores would have something that would work, if you need one as an example I think I have one laying about I can send you.

I'll mention it to the dealer contact I have as well, to see if oem ones are still available.

oh dude, that shit is definitely pro style for sure, but as in I meant Joe works in a body shop and is taking classes/professional training in body repair.  what you're working on is pretty damn good tho, hella better than I could pull off!


I was looking more at the seam at the top of the firewall above the trans, those pics that i took, I don't think its rust actually.  I think what that is there is the rubbery yellow seam sealer burning off, because it exhibits the same characteristics as the stuff elsewhere that I've lit on fire.  I'm beginning to think that its actually just burned brownish over the years as a result of the engine heat directly on the other side of the firewall.  The EGR tube comes rather close to it....

ill just mount it on track and leave it on track to be safe




got more tires mounted, added the new fresh nuts,

FINISHED MY FIRST WELD EVER
and BOY, do i suck!! i dont know what the fuck to do guys!

my first weld is solid, air tight, but my second keeps leaking, its hard to fill in the little dips

dont mind the random metal hanging, ill cut that soon

Yeah I don't think you need to worry about your welding skills. Me and my friend spent time fixing all the welds that a muffler shop did before I bought the car. There is globs of metal on some parts that I have no idea what they were trying to accomplish and there was still a hole in the side of the glob that we had to re weld and patch. Oh well, as easy as the exhaust was to weld I think im going to fab up a full 2.5 inch exhaust this weekend. Pictures for sure will be there for all to see my beginner welder skills

No worries man, it takes time to get used to.  Welding under the car like that is a bitch, and it rarely looks super nice, and I've done enough of it, lol.  As long as it holds, you can fill in the little divots and holes with sealer available for mufflers/pipes, etc., from your local parts store.

AND
ony m blue hatch,
i found this under the clusters

WHY WHY WHY?  is the harness cut and labeld?

damn dude, thats kinda whack.  I'm wondering if perhaps that car didn't have a digidash at one time, and someone spliced on the analog dash plugs, that would be not an easy job, but I can't think of any other reason.  If its not broken tho, I wouldn't mess with it.  Certainly jaidedeye might know something, seeing as he would have had the dash out to dye it I imagine.

my interior, is stored in the dump. lol
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: David B on 08:57:58 PM / 26-Oct-08
i dont know but im kind of ticked off he could have told me. ughh there just crimped not solderd and will most likley come apart at the wrong imte. then ill have to figure out which on it is  

is that a easy replacement or is that part of the main harness?


the digicluster, not the backround, but the forground is painted silver, like the clock in my interior, i never noticed though but he has deff been back there cuz her pulled the dash.


if he went from digital to analog, or whoever, that means there is a possibility of more milage, or less on my chassis?
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: 200sxkitcar on 09:03:19 PM / 26-Oct-08
You would have to replace the entire dash harness, which is a standalone harness separate from the chassis harness.  If you pull the dash out, it would be something that you have to remove from the back of the dash when its facing down, its all woven in the dash itself.  I'll have pics of mine up in my build thread real soon.  Not very difficult tho.  I'm just concerned that the chassis harness on a digidash car is different from a analog car, but I doubt it.  Dash harnesses aren't all that hard to come by, so I wouldn't worry about it, really.

noticed you added more, so I'll follow suit.

if the dash has been changed, and the cluster has been swapped with one from a different car, who knows what the MI would be.  the only real thing to do at that point would be to run a carfax report on it and see what it came up with, you may get an idea, maybe not.

you are talking about it being painted, you do or don't have the digicluster in the 84 car?  because it would be SUPER weird if it was digidash and had a speedo cable running up there, that would be messed up.

did you ever get the title for that car?
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: David B on 09:08:26 PM / 26-Oct-08
well im deffinetly going to replace it if i see any problems whatsoever.

jaidseye pulled the dash so i doubt he ziptied them back hopefully not or used some impossible way to make it hard to replace





another Q
when i accidently pulled out the wrong piece of harness in the engine bay (those little box thingys) after i took out the engine

i might have put one in wrong places?

when i turn on my lights its all wack and disconfigured and shittt
my headlights wont pop up and down either
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: 200sxkitcar on 09:19:12 PM / 26-Oct-08
yeah, you'll have no problem removing the wiring out of the back of the dash if it came to that, its pretty simple, you couldn't lock it in there that tight.

I don't really remember that far back, but if you disconnected relays, they are all colored, and the colored top parts match the bases.  The headlight sensor I sent you plugs into a connector right by the fusible link box in front of the battery, so not much there.  All the grounds still good?  everything else still connected? all fuses good?

what exactly do the lights do?  did the popups go up and down before?

well, i paid my friend 24 dollars and i told him i want my flow master and to bend out the side,


a previous friend gave me a 90 degree angle pipe,
stopped by the junk yard and got some rubber hanger things

and BAM
there i go
it sound decent, im uploading a sound byte right now


i put my hand over the end of the pipe at cold startup NO LEAKS. no EXUAST LEAKS AT ALL! holy shit weehoo waawaaaweewwaaaab

and my friend hit a mail box point blank today driving my car, on the same fender  poor fucking fender.

wow, hung properly and everything.  thats a great way of doing it!

only thing, you might want to extend it out further so it goes to the edge of the body down low, this might lessen the reverberation in the car (noise/hum inside when you're driving) if its an issue at all.

David, you might also wanna watch out, if that cat is actually a cat, and not a gutted one, it might burn out the insides of the muffler, as the cat creates a LOT of heat.

i know right something done almost right on my car!

it took us a HOUR to do it.
he somehow WELDED the pipe as it was hanged and hooked up, no leaks? awesomeness. he didnt even have a welding mask, just one of those pieces of flat plastic that has that tint plastic in it

oh btw thats the same guy that welded my diff


im probally gonna weld a extension on myself when i get a hold of my friends welder again, that should be cake for me.

id rather deal with the humming and not throw a flag out to po pos

alot of heat from my 85 whp s12? and so be it, ill ruin a pos flowmaster lying around my garage. as long as  it KINDA lookslegal.
the best a 30 dollar job can do compared to NOT having a muffler



UPDATE.
so since my friend hit that mail box in a junkyard parking lot somehow.
my fender dented in just as bad as before, actually worse. because it was weak from last time.


i once again. banged it back out (i had him remove the fender) and pay for my welds
put it all together,

it looks worse. and there are scrapes. i bet i could get some out. and the white paint off but im lazy.
im gonna take a pic and post it

Nah he doesn't have anything to worry about, the interior design of a flowmaster doesn't use material, it just uses steel baffles:

For anyone curious...
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v216/arrospeed/flowmastertechnology.jpg)

I thought this Flowmaster was kinda neat looking:

Super 44
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v216/arrospeed/0803tr_34_z50_new_partsflowmaster_s.jpg)

I'm not sure I'd want anything other than a straight through for a turbo application, but for NA a flowmaster is probably fine.
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: David B on 01:42:07 PM / 31-Oct-08
yea i think ill live.

no turbo for me anytime soon.
that black diamond plate muffler looks way crazy!

flowmaster is cheap. and doesnt have a high pitch rice can noise to it. plus its not a 3 inch can so it fits under the car. i had to bang the heat shield/floor panel under the seat a little bit from the bottom so it wouldnt rattle but its not noticable i wonder what it sounds like WITHOUT the cat converter lol

thanks, this saturday if everything stays ont he car, i should be able to get some footage of the exuast on LOAD at my LAST DRIFT EvENT THIS SEASON      


god dammit nooooooo. i get all this strees throughout the weeks and after i drift it doesnt matter and i feel relived. its like a ridiculous crack addiction. i tinker around with my car and go around town looking for tires and all this shit and i get so excited. but no more for awhile. ill be saving money. money saving. lots of money saving, to afford my new power plant  

and i have to NOT total my car at ODS, because NOW i have to DD it to work this winter on my restricted liscense


oh did i mention that this is the LAST slideways event ever? meaning that old dominion  speedway will NEVER ever EVER have drift events anymore, the guy that runs it has his own car ready now and is throwing in the towel, and our contracts are up anyways

so instead of drivint 3 miles to ODS ill have to drive to summit point, or fartehr for other places

Well as long as you're NA... I'd never use something like that on a turbocharged engine, because the turbine wheel essentially muffles much of the noise, and now the only purpose those baffles serve is to restrict flow. You know what they say, the best turbo exhaust is a wide open one.

well on my blue s12 i wanted to fabricate a fake cat and just run a straight pipe with the HKS 3 inch muffler, i think the inlet is 2.5

Lucky you... in California, it's not how many years old the car is. We have a cutoff year, 1979 build year is the last year that can get away without smogging. After that, it has to be smogged. Doesn't matter if it's the year 2008 or the year 2028.

okay
i removed the weird metal bracket from the end of S12 DRIVESHAFT, using a hammer and alot of patience lol,
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2075.jpg)

here is my new s13 driveshaft piece without it,
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2076.jpg)

i take that connecting bracket off the s12 driveshaft, and put it onto the S13 driveshaft,
WHICH,
will now let me connect the LONG s12 driveshaft that goes to the differential,
and the short s13 piece to the transmission!!

BUT
new issue
i need a tap and die set dammit
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2078.jpg)
s13 driveshaft thread needs to be retaped, i really dont feel like pulling a driveshaft from the yard so im gonna take it to a local shop and see how much it will cost for them 2 tap it, shouldnt be much

DOHC alternator? will it work?
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2079.jpg)

well it bolts up fine,
but i had to lift up the engine on an engine lift to get to the pullys,

i also too the torque convertor off by flipping the engine upside down and dropping the oil pan, no metal flakes, etc. looks cleanso far

not too sure what you are talking about man.

the large aluminum compressor on the right side of that pic is for the A/C.  Remove it if you don't plan on running air conditioning, and don't forget to take off the heavy ass bracket.  its the one with the bolts on either side of the holes, thats a good indication of A/C.

the power steering pump is the thing located on the far top by the intake mani and valve cover, the outermost belt is running to it.  This is on the passenger side of the engine... the alternator is the belt directly underneath of it.

the large aluminum compressor on the right side of that pic is for the A/C.  Remove it if you don't plan on running air conditioning, and don't forget to take off the heavy ass bracket.  its the one with the bolts on either side of the holes, thats a good indication of A/C.

the power steering pump is the thing located on the far top by the intake mani and valve cover, the outermost belt is running to it.  This is on the passenger side of the engine... the alternator is the belt directly underneath of it.

i know i got it after like 3 seconds just i cant edit my posts lol

UPDATE,

i got the stupid ass motor mounts off god these things were annoying, by the time i got to the second one i got the hang of it though, you use a flex head wrench, and a 17" socket, its one bolt
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2107.jpg)

and i got these from paul, ill be bolting them in asap
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2110.jpg)
QUESTION
is there a specific way i bolt in the s13 mounts? it looks like the bolt can slide up and down, do i posistion them all the way down? or up? or in the middle? how will i know that the engine will line up.... i dont want to have to tighten the mounts with the engine on it? ah, what ev, i dont have the right nut for them anyways so i gotta go somewhere and buy them


okay so i removed that AC bullshit, ill sell the compresser it looks kinda newish anyone want to buyy?
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2112.jpg)


QUESTION
can i remove the whole pully thingy, and just leave the bolts in so they dont get clogged, in case i want ac someday?
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2115.jpg)

bahh bahhh, well i need a fuckload of parts still, like a clutch, flywheel, and shit, so i can get the engine and tranny together, then i can plop it in, and get started with wireing, and then hookup the driveshaft and go!!

very nice, very nice.

I would just get the motor mounts in, leave them slightly loose so they can move up and down some, and then tighten down after the motor is in and you have the chance to locate the motor and mounts together.  if that makes sense.

I would leave the bolts out of the motor.  Less chance of them coming loose, and you can quite easily clean out the holes with a rag and brake clean or whatever if you ever decided to utilize them, rather unlikely tho.

Make sure when you get the wiring/ecu you know WHAT YEAR they came from, that will help with the conversion.

does the year matter? i think i ahve a 89 ka.... damn im not sure anymore since i had two ka's.


is there anyway to tell what year ka it is

I'm talking about the WIRING and ECU man, thats whats important.  I doubt the motors differ much at all, but the info is definitely needed for the wiring and ecu.

you should probably know the year of your motors for parts ordering, but again I doubt much is different.  There is a serial on them somewhere I believe, you might want to find it, dunno if it references with anything tho.

89 ka had higher compression than 90's. i also believe the 90 ka has the hiatachi(spelling) dist cap, where the 89 has the mistu one.
the wiring is basically the same for both years. 91 is where changes happened.

That first "missing" pic... You're missing the oil pump!

Edit:
Or not?
That's where the Z engines have it... Now I gotta find the FSM and find out for sure.

Edit #2:
No, that's gotta be the oil pump.

okay christmas is over, back to reality.


trying to get this transmission sorted out, three issues, but ive always known about these before i got the s12


DRIVESHAFT-SOLVED

TRANSMISSION WELL-HAS TO BE CUT
trying to figure out about that tonight without ripping out my interior XD, i just have to cut it, so the shifter will fit through,

but i have no shifter to test right now, thats why im using a tranny. ILL GET A SHIFTER AT THE YARD! i forgot about that lol


TRANSMISSION MOUNT- NEEDS TO BE MODDEd
im going to take my old ca20e tranny mount to someone that can weld, ill cut it up with my new air tools
and have them weld it to my new trans mount from paul, then it should be BOLT in



using my guns of steel, my huge biceps. like donnies, lol. one piece of wood after another, i pyramid my ass up there

how hard would it be to instal the engine ONTO the tranny with the tranny already fastened in??
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: David B on 11:16:28 PM / 25-Dec-08

update, started grinding and grinding, looks like no welding will need to occur




CA20E MOUNT
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2151.jpg)

well i ripped the ca20e mount off the transmission, then tore everything off it down to the base,



KA24E MOUNT - some aftermarket one right? or is this stock?
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2150.jpg)

i did the same with the ka24 mount

obviously the poly mount wont fit correctly,
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2152.jpg)
 so what i do is i grind the shit out of my mount all the way down FLAT for the poly mount
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2153.jpg)


SO,
then
i use washers, or metal plates, to shimmey it to whatever height i prefer, too keep it level

(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2155.jpg)


first, i need a drill to drill holes for the poly mount 2 fit though


BAH, anyone with a s12 that gets one shall be able to read this build for a simple KA swap

Post by: David B on 01:45:30 AM / 26-Dec-08
haha thanks guys, thats what keeps me going, these forums


UPDATE, lol its been a long christmas for me, but im done for the day
its in! only held in by 2 longer bolts, i need washers, legit bolts, other shit etc.

the transmission isnt bolted to the mount, its resting on it, but i slide two bolts without nuts to make sure it fits right (dont have nuts)

but it fucking works! sort some shit out! and im good

look at how low the transmission is, i can fabricate some metal plates, to go between the tranny and the mount, to raise it higher

started wiring, to figure out whats going where

0#
does something go here? at either of the holes above the throttle body?
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2203.jpg)


1#
are these two connections gonna come from the engine harness or the s12?

2#
where does this go! i cant find its home

3#
are these vac lines? where do they go?
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2208.jpg)

did the connecter piece break off? is this where its supposed to go? i can get that at the yard if so

okay and now i must figure out what i do with this part of the harness, the part that is inside the car,

Post by: 200sxkitcar on 12:23:49 AM / 31-Dec-08
lookin good.  I'll comment more later.

0.  looks like unused ports on the TB, if you look carefully, they are probably blocked off, ie the don't go anywhere.  carryovers from who knows what.

1.  Those two connections are from the S12 chassis harness.  IIRC this is going in the 84, which has the 'T' style alternator plug, so there will be some simple modding, but no big deal.  I think Jeff on his SOHC transferred the S12 oil pressure sending unit (the other plug) onto the KA, in which case the OEM S12 wiring hooks right up.  A swap to a S13 connector couldn't be too hard, dunno if the signal is different, its not critical for the car running but good to monitor/gauges.

2.  Not as familiar with the sohc harness, but 1)check all your fuel injectors and 2) check all the solenoids for the vacuum butterfly system and 3) any idle junk that may be located in the back of the intake mani.

3.  Of those three vac lines, one is likely just to be a source to the intake tubing, one is likely to go to the charcoal canister, and if one is particularly larger than the others it might also go to the charcoal canister, but the look the same....?  I'll hold on definite until someone else confirms.

4.  This looks like the coolant temp sensor for the gauge, which would normally have a metal tab coming out of it that broke.  I'd grab a new one or jyard one, up to you.

5.  Looks like the connector for the o2 sensor!

(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2213.jpg)

This pic is gold.  I don't know what the closeup connector is as its too fuzzy, but the THREE connectors in the BACKGROUND are what you will NEED to interface to the S12 chassis.  this information will come soon.

OHHHHHH i got the top part figured out


i had one of the injecter clips on the wrong thing, i disconnected it, and used the shortest one etc. till i had one spare, which i plugged into a clip not shown


okay update

is it called the clutch slave? or whatever, that seems to hook up fine
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2218.jpg)


and also, with the lower harness of the s12, it hooks up, no problems with connecters
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2217.jpg)


BUT

i have no connecter for this
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2220.jpg)

and this
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2221.jpg)



and wtf is this?
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_2219.jpg)

in the backround is what its connected too,


and where does my speedo cable go??

Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: 200sxkitcar on 12:54:56 AM / 31-Dec-08
allright....

the speedo.  S13's use the digital sending unit, which is what is in the end of the trans that you took a pic of the connector with the unit in the background.  What you will need is the part that goes into an S12 trans to replace that assly SO THAT your current speedo cable has something to connect to.  This receiving end can be from a B or C trans.

Clutch slave looks fine.  You'll very likely need to bleed the system real good to get a pedal, and don't be surprised if the slave doesn't go bad, sometimes they do when they get extended when disassembled.

The trans wiring connections.  What you aren't used to seeing is the 4th and 5th gear sensors that are on a S13 trans- they are OK to leave disconnected, BUT you will want to have the other two- the neutral safety switch and the reverse sensor- connected.  I *THINK* you've got the one with the round connector right, but the other square one I think needs to go to the sensor at the END of the transmission, one of the ones you have pic'd that isn't connected.  Notice there is some slack in the wiring, I don't think that is normal.  WHAT YOU REALLY NEED TO DO is verify that with the S13 FSM, then you will know for sure, as the book will tell you what sensors are what, then you can compare to the S12 FSM you have lying about, and match them up.

okay i understand what you mean about the speedometer cable, ill swap the lil housing piece or whatever so the cable plugs in

but the gears are different, so i should swap the s13 gear on the s12 housing, then into tranny

The S12 gear can't be taken off, it's molded onto the shaft. You'll have to get a new one.
Is that an automatic? It's way narrow compared to my old C trans speedo gear.

we barley welded, i used a hammer to make one piece level, the rest of the seat was made with drilling holes to bolt in, the brackets came off the seat, just to long pieces of metal, ill take it apart and take pics

barley any welding was dones, just to get the seat welded on, and reienforcments

I think you've got the captions mixed on your pics there, but if you are talking about the black box tucked on the pass side there that is the Time Control Unit, which is part of the S12 chassis harness.  It controls things like wiper intermittent feature, interior lights, etc and does not interact with the engine harness, so just leave it there.

blue hatch.  love it.  wheels lookn good too!

I don't see why you should have clearance issues with the hood.  Are you all the way fastened down with proper motor mounts?

Look in the S13 fsm.  I *think* in the S12 FSM there are actual dimensions- the length and the thread pitch- for the engine->trans bolts, S13 FSM might have the same info.

no garage at the new place?? this is not good....  I see an overhang or something tho...

Those are looking pretty sweet. When you redo them make sure you get the paint down into the hole's. Maybe it's just the picture but it looks like it is just the face and not in the tight place's.

my buddy, for s13. 100 bux is a good price, there not blow either, i got them cheap because he got them for 100 dollars, just because he found a good deal, but he drives a camaro, and offered them too me, hes gonna help me do whatever to get them in, im probally gonna order adjustable perches

seperate spring from coil, then ill be able to swap springs around like coilovers right?

whats a good price for two adjustable perches? linky?

i got the ignition shit sorted out, i need to hit the yard. it should work once i get a clip to convert for the  ignition


i have a s13 sohc harness, with a s13 dohc ignition coil, so the ignitor wont hook up cuz it has a diff clp i think

Cool man.  Don't wanna seem like a "creepy old man."  Jk, I'm only a few years older than you.

I definitely wanna get a better look at what you've done before I even attempt doing a motor swap myself.  

I wouldn't mind checking out a drift event either, just out of curiosity.  Maybe I can come try in my turbo Z31. I've never been into drifting, but I figure it could be fun and I should give it a chance.

Nice.  That would be sweet to have a little powder coating booth.  You could make some nice money on the side.

I just picked up some 17 inch 350z wheels for my Z and I'm contemplating having them powdercoated black to go with the black trim on my car.

You know that "brace" isn't bracing anything, right? Shocks only go up and down, they don't get any side load.


you would think so, and you would be wrong.

Quote from: nismologist
if it really doesnt brace anything then why do they sell rear strut tower bars?

cause people will buy them. people will buy anything.

His is a shock tower bar
Youre thinking of strut tower bars

same difference.

Quote from: Xano
just to clarify this for anyone who hasn't seen it.

The bar is for his harness...thats more or less it.

i would not want that being anywhere nere my car, let alone relying on it for a safety device.

dave, you've been doing good so far, dont start doing hacker ass shit like that. give that back to your dad and have someone make you a proper harness bar or get a simple 4 point rollbar put in which will be even better.

agreed, i had to point that that was what he was using it for though, since a few other people seemed to not see.

you'd be better off grinding down spots in the car and welding round tubing to the pillar behind the door, about right below the window area.  though i suppose then you run the risk of that one bar bending into a V shape in the case of a side collision and V'ing itself right through you....though that could be an issue with the current bar too....

Here's a "proper"  harness bar.  I don't see any real problems with yours for now, since you're building this on a budget.  It does look like it might be kind of far back from the seat, but I've never used a racing harness, so I really don't know how much of a difference it would make.

Because if you use it for a harness bar and if you front-end crash, it's going to pop those 8MM shock studs right clean off and you'll go flying through the windshield.

You'd even be better off using the rear seat belt bolt in areas, those are at least designed for seat belt stress. Though then you'd run a risk of a compressed spine, because the shoulder straps will pull down on your shoulders when your body moves forward.

And yea, I didn't read and see that you want to use it for a harness bar, but if I were a tech inspector, I would never let that pass, it's just a dumb idea.

if you got flames coming out of your intake, your timing is too far advanced. i noticed in your picture, your maf is like 3 inches away from the throttle body. NO GOOD. it needs at LEAST 18 inches. that could be your problem. make sure your fuel lines are correct.

Nope, it would still run.
The distance for the MAF is just to reduce turbulance that might affect the MAF reading, which only will cause odd idling or minor power surges.

I use to run my MAF right off the TB, never had a problem. Even if it were, it would still at least start, which it would even with out a MAF.

indeed. before i had piping for my car i ran it right off the manifold, instead of the intake to the turbo charger. its ran, but idle  kind of wacko. and was kinda laggy when you gave it gas. but thats with a turbo car as well.

and w00t to gettin it running. nothings better than hearing your car run for the first time  

did you ever figure out if your dizzy is out 180 degrees? usually if theres fire coming out of your intake, you got valves opening at the wrong time or spark at the wrong time.
im not real familiar with the KA engine so im not much help lol

sickness!  

wont run at all under idle? check for like a mad vacuum leak, and if your maf sensor is still gangster rigged right onto the manifold, that could be it as well. try unplugging it and see if it runs at idle, if so, thats your problem.

whatd you do to get it running?!

the maf sensor is still gangster rigged but i need to get a stock intake

we rotated the spark plug wires or something i cant remember i had some people come over and help me





list of things to do

1. get car idling
2.bolt motor mounts down all the way
3.find bolts that will work for the motor to bolt to the mounts
4.stop transmission fluid leak, im leaking from the cable driven speedo sensor, for now ill just use the stock E sensor
5. wire up more sensors, get the tach working. all that etc.
6. weld diff
7. get insurance, and get historic plates
8.drift this weekend! of not, ill skip this event and go next month

plug next to the maf sensor is the IAT(intake air tempeture) sensor plug.

this is with your cap left alone

 your wire #3 should be wire #1
your wire#1 should be #2
your wire 4 should be 3
wire 2 should be 4

Bingo! KA and SR swaps are the same amount of work, other than intercooler piping, but that's not hard and has to be done on any turbo engine.

It doesn't matter if the thing is pointing upward or downward, as long as the wires are in the right place and in the good order...
you have the right firing order 1-3-4-2, but if you are not firing the cylinder at TDC on the comp stroke, it will not run right at all.... you could try swaping the wire's position while keeping the good firing order like someone else here pointed out.  Try out bottom right corner 1, top right 3, top left 4, bottom left 2 and if that doesn't cut it, try 180 off, top left 1, bottom left 3, bottom right 4, top right 2...

Or if you want to be sure, put your crank pulley right to your TDC mark and pull the distributor cap, the rotor should point your #1 spark plug wire, follow the sequence 1-3-4-2 and your will be sure

Post by: tommy on 09:34:36 PM / 23-Mar-09
Alright, the distributor orientation doesn't matter as long as it lines up to the rotor inside....

Get your engine to TBC mark (on the crank pulley) and if you are sur the head is timed right, pull out the distributor cap.  You will see the rotor inside, now you got to make sure that the rotor is going behind the no1 spark plug wire when you reassemble your cap over the rotor.  

If this is OK, your probleme could as well be an air leak in your intake manifold, after your TB.  those guys pointing out the brakebooster vaccum inlet minght be right about it, make sure it is not leaking air past the tape, if it is, the car will not idle on close loopor open loop, because it will be way too lean.  Get a piece of hose (2inch) in there and tighten the collar around the pipe, get a good size bolt in the hose and tighten an other collar to keep the bolt secure.  That's the only way I plug a hole in my manifold if I have too.  

If all this fails, check all your vaccum hose to see if they are not cracked and follow them all the way, to see if they are pluged in right.  I have a strong feeling you are only havin a leak in your intake, either through a vaccum hose/fitting or through a gasket (hope it's through a hose)

you will need to adjust your iac idle thingy. that might be your problem too. i had to on mine.
also, check where the throttle plate is, theres a screw on the side of the throttle body that when adjusted will push the throttle open a little, adjust that for idle too.

David, I know its 99% not going to happen, but you could hydrolock with the filter down where it could get submerged in deep water situations.

Never a bad bet to get Air Bypass Valve.

David why the crazy intake relocate?!  Ur MAF not reachin over there eh?  Had to extend the wires?

and the cold air intake didnt have good inlets for the vacuum lines when i had it normally they faced UP

thats mainly why i shot it down, plus ill be getting some nice air down there

i didnt extend MAF wires, u can just unwravel the loom and seprate the maf lines from the other lines it gives you like 5 feet to play around with


well heres the start of me blocking off water/dirt coming off the wheel

if i get any wheel rub at full lock ill have to use thinner plastic/heat bend mold it around

it drives fine, the steering wheel straightens out faster then normal cause the rear wheels are pushing alot
tight radius turns, and when i clutch kick i actually go sideways and stay sideways haha

also people say welded diffs are bad, but in a racing perspective i beleive you can still use a welded diff's advantage to gain back what you loose etc.
i think im going to weld any rwd car i ever get

plus i never get stuck




i drove the hatch 45 miles today
it makes noises. but runs so far haha

no tach, no speedo, no volt guage, no oil pressure guage

ugh haha. gotta fix that

okay. i was completly wrong, the clicking noise i thought my springs were making was actually my driveshaft bolts almost off the thread,

phew. i locktighted them and shit.. i musta forgot while i welded the diff. i remember putting them on just not super tight

i used 2 locking washers i had lyiing around also





SO,

besides everyone saying its not going to work, the setup is working out great. is super cool. worth 50 bux


going to get more s13 front end suspension tomorrow

but for this first drift event, im just going to use those other front springs, on my stock struts, even with blown shocks up front it must be better then my stock ones

i love west  va  

k today just added the stiffer springs to the front, we decided to put a 1.5 inch spacer, i shoulda left that out IMO, because i could go lower, but i had to guess, to add these springs we basically had to take everything apart screw s12 suspension!


regardless its much stiffer, now its stiff all around, minus the stock s12 frotn shocks shocks arent so cool... the rear camaro ones are awesome though but will get me through next event until i get 2 coilovers, ill do my whole s13 front conversion with my new q45 brakes

Post by: David B on 12:27:43 PM / 20-Apr-09
the KA runs like shit, or has some sort of timing chain noise, or something. but seems fine when im putting full throttle on it

it wouldnt be worth selling
*it was a cheap engine off a friend, but i did put alot of unneeded time and money into some thing like some gaskets, rear main seal, the alt, starter and missing pieces. but hell it feels alot more power then the ca20

id rather rebuild the ka with turbo power after the sr is, for the other s12

the KA runs like shit, or has some sort of timing chain noise, or something. but seems fine when im putting full throttle on it

it wouldnt be worth selling

Ok.  NVM.  Haha.  I wonder what's wrong with the SR.  I mean, if you have it, may as well tear it down and see what the problem is and then go from there.

SR power would be amazing.

well to keep it, id have to pay my friend the other half of what we split it, which is 150 bux, then id need to find parets, like manifolds, turbo, ic piping, etc.


the old owner ran it out of oil somehow... a dumbass, the engine was just rebuilt, so alot of gaskets should be top shape

Hmm.  If you pay the other 150 and tear it down and it's something small, you have a good deal on an SR.

How does someone run a car with no oil?  I check my oil like every week, even in my yaris that only has 20k miles on it.

i bet your ka is making lifter noise. to check, take off the valve cover and try moving the lifters individualy, up and down. my exhaust side kept giving me problems. they are filled with oil and sometimes the oil drains out and they get play and make a tapping sound mainly from idle to 3000rpm. around 3000rpm they bleed themselves, but with no oil in them they wont bleed correctly.

try any radiator, any rad you get is gonna require some custom work, so get one made for a huge engine or something, just measure your existing one with a tape and make sure the height and length are the same or smaller on the new one.

some more information on the DIY part

heres the stock fan ill be using, this stays internal and is made from metal to withstand heat
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_3007.jpg)

heres some free insulation, from the stock oven i can use

(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_3008.jpg)


here are the heat rails, off the harnes, its as easy as a pos. neg. wire that attaches to them. simple stuff, i have 4, becuase i have a double oven

(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_3009.jpg)


heres the wiring mess, i touch NOTHING, this is literally the top of the old oven, i welded it to the top of my new one

(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_3010.jpg)


that harness, has a sister harness that scrolls down the back of the original oven, dos the same as mine
consists of A powe harness, like any eletrical oven
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_3011.jpg)

and B the wiring to each heat rail, pos. neg. and to a light, which ill use, and to a fan, that i might not use

that wood will get hot, so i must make a pad, i have spread rock, to seperate the wood from the oven
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_3020.jpg)
not recommended, its expensive but i got it for free

and then some tools used

30 dollar drill from hb freight

20 dollar cut off wheel from hb frieght
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/100_3019.jpg)

No it's 10% except on fluids and spark plugs and a few other things... lemme read the back of the card here...

Not on R-12 and R134a refrigerant, motor oil, gear oil, transmission fluid, antifreeze, spark plugs, VDP (special orders), and marked-down items.

I've bought a variety of things and everything was 10% off. It even works on the candy and soda and chips and such, which is cool when you want to grab a quick, cheap snack on your break. Unfortunately for me, I drive the truck so I can't take the soda in there (we're only allowed water, no other drinks or any food).

Hell yeah man, when you have an alternator or starter die on you, you'll see, that's a BIG money savings right there. Plus you can bring them in to test them on the machine, and save yourself some grief/money.

Buy new belts, hoses, and wires, and the savings are big, too.

Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: 200sxkitcar on 03:11:35 AM / 03-Jun-09
the best thing to do imo is get S13 inner AND outer tie rod ends and swap those onto your current S12 rack.  There are other options, but this is the most stable I think (the A-1 adapter tie rod ends are both more $$ and don't seem as solid as OEM ones) and you will still maintain full adjustability.

As for the tension rods, you'll either need S14 tension rod brackets or simply mount up the shit, see whereabout the S13 tension rod comes into the original s12 tension rod bracket, and drill a new hole to accept the S13 tension rod bracket.  thing is with this, you may end up with different (ie incorrect) caster by doing this, which if you had adjustable S13 tension rods then you'd be ok.  more things to think about...

also btw, you can swap the S13 ball joint into the original S12 lower control arm and maintain the same wheel fitment you had before.  dunno if this matters to you, but installing the S13 stuff with the S13 lca will bump your wheel outward by about 10mm.

Post by: David B on 03:16:15 AM / 03-Jun-09
ughh all this bs.


can i just swap the hub or w/e onto the LCA....and use all stock s12 stuff around there..... i dont see too much upgrade other then the coilovers anyways...and the brakes



oh wait, r u saying, i can swap pieces off the stock s13 stie rods onto the s12 tie rod to the rack?
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: 200sxkitcar on 03:21:00 AM / 03-Jun-09
umm

S13 inner tie rods will thread into an S12 steering rack.  This is what i recommend.  then put S13 outer tie rods onto the S13 inner tie rods, and connect to new spindle.

opportunity to get the steering spacers as well, which would slip over the threads of the S13 inners as they go into the S12 steering rack, which will allow the rack to move further each way and give you more lock.


S13 outer----S13 inner--S12 steering rack--S13 inner---S13 outer

make sense?..

the cheapest way you can do it david is.......

keep the s12 lca in place.
keep the s12 swaybar in place
keep the s12 tension/strut rod and bracket in place
buy s13 ball joints
install s13 balljoints into s12 lca
install s13 knuckle to s12 lca w/ s13 ball joint
get s13 tie rods...autozone new=cheap junkyard=cheaper
use your coils and boom you got suspension.
brakes can be put on later after the cars on the ground.
thats the easiest and cheapest s13 swap.

basically all you need is rotors, balljoints and some tie rods. install that then sell the s12 stuffs to make some money back and go buy some more s13 stuff for spares.

QUESTIONS

those rubber ball joint thingys, should i buy 200sx, or 240sx ones, and what are they called


and, i had 3 sets of control arms with hubs on them, and also 2 spare knuckles


but i lost the left controlarm/knuckle, and i have 2 rights



could i use my SPARE knuckle on the left side with the left knuckle, and add the RIGHT hub, onto that knuckle?

is there a difference between left and right hubs?
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: RB25sx - SLPR on 10:50:14 PM / 08-Jun-09
I sincerely hope you were not relying on that jackstand that was under the control arm to hold the car up - it looks sketchy as hell.

As for removing the arm from the knuckle either try heat, or thread the nut back on about halfway and then strike the nut DEAD ON with a large drift or piece of pipe + hammer.

I believe there was something said before about how the taper of the balls joints for the 240 vs 200 are different. Thus the 240 taper is designed to fit the 240 knuckle (common sense).. Can someone else elaborate on this?

Technically there is a difference between left and right hubs, if they are new it shouldnt matter. Used hubgs though - that can create wear patterns that might be noticeable in your driving experience. You can always check by calling a parts store and seeing if the left vs right hubs have different part numbers, they are likely the same though.

I sincerely hope you were not relying on that jackstand that was under the control arm to hold the car up - it looks sketchy as hell.

As for removing the arm from the knuckle either try heat, or thread the nut back on about halfway and then strike the nut DEAD ON with a large drift or piece of pipe + hammer.

I believe there was something said before about how the taper of the balls joints for the 240 vs 200 are different. Thus the 240 taper is designed to fit the 240 knuckle (common sense).. Can someone else elaborate on this?

Technically there is a difference between left and right hubs, if they are new it shouldnt matter. Used hubgs though - that can create wear patterns that might be noticeable in your driving experience. You can always check by calling a parts store and seeing if the left vs right hubs have different part numbers, they are likely the same though.

-Dan


lol no, the jackstand is just holding the control arm up so i could pop the knuckle off without it bending down, the car is held on jackstands on the frame rails

i might just end up looking for the other hub

why cant i just use the stock tie rod, and drille a hole through the bolt, through the thread, and put a cotter pin there?

or simply weld the bolt to the thread, and cut it off once i buy new tie rods
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/103_0740.jpg)




can i sue the stock brake line? if i weld a piece of metal, to keep the box looking thing from going left and right, if it holds pressure etc. will this be fine?

(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k20/gamefreak291/103_0741.jpg)

next, id to drill the rotors on my dads drill press

you need the s13 tie rod ends.  do not jankify this part, its extremely critical for the car to go in a straight line... vs into oncoming traffic.  welding to this if not done just right could result in it suddenly breaking off.  same with drilling, etc.

if you absolutely cannot find s13 inner and outer tie rods, Im sure we could locate a set here in socal.

I don't think you need to modify the S12 flexible brake line at all, iirc it should be just fine.  its only when you run the steering angle spacers it becomes a problem.  If you are concerned, swap to S13 soft lines, then no issues.

I recommend new copper washers on the flex line where it bolts to the caliper (the box end) so you reduce the chance of leaks.  they are cheap, just bring them to your favorite parts store and they should be able to match them.

The hubs should be the same left or right.  The S13 setup, unlike the S12, has all the bearings and movable surfaces within the bearings pressed into the hub, so you dont need to worry about wear patterns on the spindle, etc because the movement occurs within the hub, not on the spindle like it does on the S12.  its rather hard to describe without the actual parts in front of us, but you can use either one on either side or just grab another if necessary.  preferably one with all the lug studs

You need to be using the S13 ball joint.  install a new S13 ball joint if yours is damaged or it is still an S12 ball joint.

looks good man...

David, Steering is one of the things you don't wanna cobble together. use the S13 inner and outers. They're super easy to find in a boneyard (Even for me), and they qualify as a pocket item in my case. I understand you have spare knuckles, but keep them at that. spares. Just do it right. I had a SHOP not torque down a tie rod castle nut right, and I almost died. I was doing 40 on a highway on ramp, it let go, which caused the ball joint to let go (wheel went all the way to the right) and then, off the on ramp down a 45 degree embankment. for 200 feet, stopping 2 feet shy of a concrete barrier.

I do not dick around with chassis parts... and recommend you to think the same way.

Post by: 200sxkitcar on 12:54:36 AM / 10-Jun-09
Tie rods are inner and outer halves, you need both.  when you see S13 ones, you'll know why- they are totally different lengths and smaller diameter.

Apparently S12 and S13 ball joints have different tapers, so you need to toss S13 ball joints into the S12 control arms.

I don't fear death, but I'll be damned if I die on the road from something I did poorly

Swap the ball joint's, it's not hard (press, or torch and hammer away)

Now go clean your room damnit. I'm getting sick of the car parts keeping the door shut.

A socket that's big and tall enough to go around the shaft, and within the casings outer ridges makes life a lot easier to beat it down out of the control arm. But the arm will most likely have to be removed for this..

I have read of others using the stockers, but I wouldn't risk it seeing as the part MADE for the knuckle, is easily put into the car.

Cool good job david! hey, are you going to replace those ball joints on the lower controle arm? just wondering they look a little beet up.
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: 200sxkitcar on 12:43:01 AM / 11-Jun-09
yes, Henry replaced his balljoint, you need to do the same.  either look thru his build thread and find the pics of where it was done or go to autozone and rent the tool to press them out and press the new ones in, its not hard, the kit will make sense after you play with it for awhile.

its not yourself you've got to worry about, if something goes wrong and you plow into the incoming lane and kill or injure your friend driving/another driver or passengers that would be on your shoulders for the rest of your life.  not worth it imo.

let me see if I posted up the pics of the balljoint install in the cheetah build thread, it should be near the end,

40-60 bucks EACH.

I get em for 17.99
That is one of the smartest things i've done in my life. Before I left advance auto, I set myself up with a level 5 commercial discount account..  

Oh, and a side note for that, Get one that's greaseable and not the lifetime warranty sealed pieces of junk.
Unless, like my maxima, none are greaseable. Then drill and tap a hole for a grease fitting. I could not bring myself to selling the "lifetime" ones when I worked the desk, because EVERY SINGLE ONE FAIL!

And david... The boneyard shouldn't be your first parts source for EVERYTHING.... But 90 percent of the time, yeah. It should.

I would ask the seller if it comes with the circlips for the top. It has the groove, but as it states may be a generic picture. Find that out first.
You can rent a ball joint and ujoint press tool at advance for about 70 bucks, or maybe more. But you get it all back when you return it. I've used that countless times. And now I own my own press. I got sick of paying for pressing the maxima's bearings out and in every 6 months.

fuck q45 brakes. i drilled my old rusty rotors, and installed them

neither of the hoshinos nor rikens fit! i need a 10 mill spacer and im broke kinda in that area



SO, i gave my drilled rotors to a guy who needed them with his j30 brakes... on his ca18det s13.. he put his brake setup together, suprisingly my drill job seems fine.. i did use a drill press and carefull stuff though

in return i got 2 brand new q 45 rotors (undrilled) and his s13 old brakes, pads and calipers.. that were on the car thanks to him lots

so im gonna rock the s13 shit till i can afford spacers etc. and redrill these new rotors

suspension is basically DONE, but i ordered s13 ball joints... i put it all kinda together but im missing bolts etc. i just wanted to make sure it all was gonna fit right


so, get ball joints pressed in, get some bolts, and drift nirvana here i come

why? the springs in the rear arent that bad

It's center of gravity isn't level. for one. It's sloped. Spring and strut rates aren't matched. and I'm sure the rear springs and shocks are going to be a lot softer in comparison.

take videos!!!

Oh, and go get that car for me and bring it here.

my tie rods are TOO long... instead of welding it shorter, i bought my first die and tap set and made a new thread

i <3 tap and die sets!!! they work so well!

i lengthend the tie rod thread, and i cut the some of the old part off, so now it should be fine to drive to get it aligned

the made thread is the cleaner part

i still havent lowered the rear, i decided not to until i get spacers because i an really, only go down,and not up lol



ill drift with the turbo hood if my shit doesnt overheat, and i wont drift with the hoshinos, i like drifting on 15's thank you very much
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: David B on 10:44:55 PM / 30-Jun-09
dropped the rear another inch, i might raise the front a tad and add a 8 mill spacer


im buying 2 rear 20 mill spacers so work with me


man im not sure aboutt hese hoshino wheels, there cool, rare, i love the look, but there 14's, and trying to lower a car on 14's then go out and drift on 15's like i do, is highly annoying, not to mention my tire choices, and my contact patch

im probally going to throw them up for sale, and get some 16x8 i want a good =10 offset or something

here are the pictures

nice.

consider sliding on 16s is gonna be more difficult, less tires out there.

if you are talking about 16s to&from track/street use, then whatever works!  I like the hoshinos but can understand the issue.

pics with spacers!  take some goood pics.  this will be the best your car has looked yet!

Road courses are sexy, as long as they're real road courses. I have USAIR in shawano and road america up here that are my badass tracks. and they're both VERY badass. Just both are a good drive for me. USAIR isn't so bad at an hourish, but road america is around 2 and a half.

Sorry, I won't go that far unless she's trailered

vir is virginia international raceway.  depending on which road course they are letting you run its one of the most technical and challenging tracks to drive.  

the oak tree bend puts many a racer into the wall.

the patriot course (inner run) is the drifting course usually, its worth getting there.

I loved going there last year in october with nico.

david get videos or photos, especially if they let you setup in the actual pits instead of the drift paddock

Ebay plug wires I spot. Let me know how those work out in about 3 months. I've had about 10 friends have them fail in short order.

Get electrical gauges, More accurate and much less of a pain in the ass. I like only wires going through my firewall.

if anyone doesnt remember the previous owner stripped the steering colum thread for the wheel, i had impacted a jeep lugnut on there to hold my hub in efforts to keep the wheel hub on and continue to drift


DO NOT BUY CHEAP HUBS!!! lmao!

the gears, on the hub stripped?!?!?! mid drift....


luckly... the guy with the whiplash drift truck happened to have a gas welder and there was a power source nearby for it.... never gas welded before
just to get 4.5 hours home home we did this

Gas welders are way better than flux core! just to throw that in.... Nice temporary fix, though but you forgot the duck tape and zip ties FTMFW.  How did the event go other than that miss hap?

the resivor was free off a s13 i watched wreck into the woods and he totaled his car and i got it off the scene


and the hose was like 15 -20% my discount at autozone

 






hey ka guys!..... does anyone want the part number for that hose??!!? it worked great after cutting it some.. i spent all day looking for it at the zone. to use for sr rads since its on the other side.. prob only would work for e fans maybe... i think it could hit a clutch fan.. ill get the number tomorrow

but i forgot! the code of the s12..... NOTHING BOLTS IN!


cylinder one, or whichever exaust port closest to the steering colum that goes to the rack, hits the colum at the joint like if i turn the wheel i can get it to fit in but i need to cut and reweld the manifold so it sits about 1/4 inch away from the rack, its so close of a fit, but not a serious problem, just got to cut the pipe section off, and pivot it, and find a small piece that i can reroute it too, trying to keep in mind i dont want to change the design of them

have to find someone that can weld better then me, or, just man up and do it my self, which ill probally end up doing


part of the downpipe actually rests on the floor of the car, i either A extend the downpipe, or B hammer it in some, which ill probally just grab my hammer

Braces are useless. The shocks they have on ebay are gimmicks, and if you decide to do a solid one, All you end up doing is bending the shit out of the shock tower, strut bolts, or whatever you attach it to. Watched it too many times. Your best bet is mounts, and trust me. Hockey pucks will make drifting much easier.

Or use chain to prevent the block from torquing over. Those give way and prevent body damage. That's a tried and true method used many a time on hot rods and big ol v8's

Make a trans mount to. Poly will work fine for that.

Here's another idea for you. Get some mapp gas, and heat up the top elbows on the header. Closest bends to the manifold. and use a tube (NOT A HAMMER) to bend them down slightly, that will tuck the headers closer to you block, and out of the way of the column. Take the headers out to do this. Or heat them up, and push on them with a jack or something to bend them, but that may bend or pull the studs out of the head.

Then do pucks

SR harness is separate from chassis harness and would be easy to do.

Hatch is a shade under 80lbs, its in someones sig line.

Pucks will drop the motor down and probably cause more interference.  I like the poly idea...

Then you got the wrong tubes I'm guessing.

Part number is 08609. I've found that in my town, buying the tube at advance auto parts was a different part number, and not the "Super fast urethane" that you need in order for it to cure in less than a month. I always have to get it at the zone

Another option, is from home depot. It's called "PL Roofing Polyurethane"

Either one works. But also, It took a 13 hours of baking in a toaster oven at 150 to cure to the core for me, It will take a full 24 to cure at outside temp.

Here's a pic of doing mine. Tore em in half, Cleaned out the oil or whatever, Filled the insides, and pretty much made the whole thing a solid chunk of polyurethane. It turned out quite good. Those two stains on the driveway are still there. That's okay though. My landlords already hated me at this point

I don't know what you speak of. It hardened for me just fine, nearly every time. Here's a pic of my CA20 Mount pulled apart.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v122/Phreakonaleash55/DSCN0602.jpg)

It does harden, and it does work well. BUT!

David, You didn't pull the mount out and cut it apart. What you have done is wrap poly around it. Which is next to pointless. The oil filled cavity that is the motor mount is still open, and will still flex. Not as much, but you probably only hardened it by 15%, instead of 65%. That is IF it decides to stick to the mount. Also, they're being put under the compression of the motor. If you want a stiffer mount, they need to be filled without the weight of the motor on it.

When you get some money I would recommend the Nismo motor mounts unless you want something really stiff. I have them on my s13 and they are great for a daily driver and are only about 100 bucks for the pair. I got the tranny mount with it as well for 150 and its so much better than the horrible stock mounts. For your track slut though I doubt your gonna spend 100 bucks on just the motor mounts .

Once again, that box you picked up, and that coil. are useless for a KA-T until you reach 400 hp.

the stock ignition system is great, and I have tested stock KA coils that put out >50k Volts. Which is more than any MSD I've ever seen put out.

And SR's use Coil On Plug setups. So no, if you go SR you can't use either the box or the coil until you go standalone. and completely balls out with the motor.

Ignition cut? There is no ignition cut on the KA.

That sounds like the ECU is getting pissed that it doesn't know how fast it's going to me.

Is all of the wiring on your transmission still hooked up, but using the S12's Speedo gear and cable?

The SOHC get's pissy when it knows it's going fast, but doesn't know just how fast.. Disconnect all the connectors on the transmission (so it never knows what gear it's in) and give her a shot

Another option is to throw in an automatic's ecu. That may do somethin for ya

Do it. It's yours anyway. The auto ECU will have a 99.999999 percent chance of solving that.

Plus, when you need to move it, It's 5 minutes to pull it out of your car, and plug it back in to the S13

I don't think so. I'm pretty sure something about the manual one flips out and goes haywire. But it can't hurt to try.

do you have a genuine nissan dist cap and rotor? aftermarket caps suck ass, they shit out all the time. take the cap off and check that the terminals arent burnt up or corroded.


do you possibly think too, that maybe the stock fuel pump cuts out on you? hillkill had problems when being sideways in higher gears like yours. his car would cut out on him then come back. i think he ended up figuring out his gas was being swooshed around and not making it into the pump.

just 2 things to check

After I saw the new pair of Azenis you got I was confused till I realized you were gonna use them for the fronts. Sure enough when I scrolled down you mounted them on your fronts. I was gonna get a set of the Azenis for grip driving but they are kinda spendy and the tread life is just way to low for me to justify the price. For you though I think they are perfect as it is a track only car and is not daily driven to put excess wear on them. If money wasn't such an issue that is definitely what I would go with but I will probably have to opt for a little bit harder tire with longer tread life sadly. Either way anything I get will beat the value brand Warrior's I bought the car with hahaha.

One little tidbit about that manifold that you should do before installing it. Relief cut the plate between the runners. That will prevent it from cracking due to thermal expansion (which is hit or miss with the XSPOWER and SSAUTOCHROME manifolds.)

That's it!

What happened to your stock dash? Or did you just not want to throw it back in

 i just wanetd to see if the s13 one would fit

the s12 stock dash is higher then the s13 one, so i had to cut the lower portion off. and it was about 2 inches too wide. so i had to also clip the passenger side a tad.

yess. this is a track car. i just dont want to rub. i rubbed so bad last time. i had to remove the spacers because i would straighten out like open diff


we previously rolled it, 3 people in the back of the car, 3 people pushing, me rolling. but it wasnt enough with the thick jack pole we used

lower profile tires arent a option for me since i dont buy tires. my usual profile is 60 for 15 and 14's




plus this method, dropping the car on the wood as hard as i can. provides instant results haha... ill be bringing the blocks to the event incase i rub more. when i throw on other wheels




ALSO, for lowered cars. if you want to get room to slide the jack under there, carefully placing the wood there allows the frame to sit higher so you can get the jack under up farther



heres what it looks like stock

 

this car come a far way guys! i started with nothing. its amazing haha

lol. after every event it goes on jackstands and stays like that

well a silvia front for a s12 doesnt exist. so im making my own silvia hood haha


right right side is coming out good. the left side was bent from the wreck, so i have been hammered some


welded the headlight covers to the hood with the lincoln, back tapped the gap in some places, and filled with 1 layer of jb weld, ill be doing another layer of jb weld, or bondo. depending on which i prefer. possibly jb weld. its stronger


then ill sand down and pain the whole hood

You know those are gonna get fucked up when you hit a wall again, right?
They aren't replaceable now either.

Edit:
That's a decent approach to doing a fixed light conversion though, I didn't think there was enough room to fit a stock sized housing there.

I'm planning on doing something that's a bit between the two, fixed for low beam, popped up a small bit for high beam.

wrong, just cutting a hole in a standard flat hood isn't enough... it has different understructure to counteract the huge hole and keep the hood straight. Otherwise the hood would probably sink in with the scoop.

Honestly I like everything else he's done to the car, this is just the first thing I haven't. So I'm not shitting on your thread David, just don't like this one thing you did to it.

Nahhhhh, that scoop is like 3 pounds lol. But no I understand that it is different, just saying it is something he could do and he could just weld up a little brace so it didn't flex.

i deleted the black trim on the middle portion by filling it... it didnt come out right. i dont need it be fine


also the lip, i want it perfect so i added some more filler there, ill sand down, look for any bubbles or anything, and fill that


the more i fill/sand now, the less i have to do it on the new fender


the hood is coming out sweet

i dont trust my body work to come out correctly, but i would if they did hahah

 to make the new fender, it should be about, 12 dollars in matte, maybe like 16 bux, about 20-30 dollars of resin, unless i find it cheaper in mass quanity's

and a few days to get them good...


so its already like 40-50 dollars for one fender. not included shipping, and work.

i dont think anyone would pay that much x2 for 2 fenders, and i wouldnt do it for like free haha

okay here comes the dicussion of my no pop up lights


i dont like pop ups, ALOT of people do, so if im going to do this.. id like it to be sort of okay for others to view, i dont want people to look down on it



heres my options



my favorite idea


is to have them hidden, at all times... and have a slide or bolt on cover, and when i really need headlights, just slide the cover, or pop it off to have the headlight viewed
(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/102_3711.jpg)

its as easy as, cutting out and molding the headlight into here, or even have a flap over it
(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/102_3712.jpg)
or, just remove this whole marker light assembly, and install the bulb with a 1 or 2 bolt bracket.. its a track car.. i never use my lights


i dont like this look though, i think it looks way awesome, with no lights. but this would be kinda what its like, when im using them.. just for transportation to a car meet if im not trailering it
(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/102_3710.jpg)




or, i could rock doubles per side.. but i think its ugly
(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/102_3706.jpg)


what do you think guys, your opinion makes a difference on my front end

this idea has me remove the stupid non working pop ups.. i dont gotta search for miore headlight assemblies and motors when i wreck, and i dont gotta have those big ass sealed beams, this i can fab up real quick if i ever damage them

Post by: Jay on 01:22:25 AM / 31-Oct-09
I like option 3.

The two headlights you have there. recessed about an inch, with a smoked, or a mirrored one way (using mirrored window tint) cover as pictured in picture one. Best of all worlds, and not hard to make.

Just simple plexiglass, heat it up slowly with a heat gun, and make the bend. voila, covered, recessed headlights with no sliding or unbolting of cover.

But if your not willing to do that, I like the two headlights, as someone else said, recessed a little bit into it.

I like the look of that open space there, I'm rocking it. Just like you though. I don't really like the idea with the open space with lights in there.

Or, Just thought of it. Instead of bending the plexi, Cut out or separate the front plastic on that housing. That way you have it right there. remove the paint somehow. and you have your perfect lens

i could make my marker lights up top as turn signals.. if i really wanted turn signals

and run the headlights in the turn signals

Nah looks FAR better than DoriToad.

Ok David I will admit if you put in those tiny headlights right where the cornerlights are IT WILL LOOK GOOD, and I admit that you have a good eye for this kind of thing. I guess the only thing I was cringing over is that there are so FEW Turbo '84 hoods left in North America.

But like I said... you're doing a PROPER job of it. So for that you get mad credit.

Those drift pics you posted on the 28th are good enough for the calendar, but you'd have to get permission to use them, logo-free... we give credits at the bottom to whoever needs it but yeah those are great action shots.

That might wind up not being legal. something like that I would actually make a call or an appointment with one of your state troopers to find out what is the legal height of the headlights for a vehicle. I know here in wi, Driving lights are defined as all of the headlight bulbs (Sealed beam, 6054, 4446, 7613, etc, and and just bulbs, 9006/9007/9004/9005 HB1 and others). and the headlight must be a minimum of 30" off the ground. Even I'm pushing it.

Your so close to getting your license back, There is something to consider with that.

And the whole 30 inches thing, Cars with stock headlights get away with it.. It's in place so that you don't have your driving lights below a certain level, otherwise they qualify as fog lights. and not driving lights. My state has some stupid laws. Like getting tickets for surface rust on a wheel. And if a single part on your car is not OEM (No aftermarket), every one can be a ticket. It's just one of those things that it's something you CAN get pulled over, depending on how bad they want to talk to you

That settles that then. But, that does look like a gem. And judging by the way the rears are recessed so far, I'm guessing an SRA too. Rob that thing blind man.

And brewster, I don't know everything. I just know what I do know, just like you. Until PROVEN otherwise. I just happen to know a lot, about a lot.

And matt. It's a variation of FMVSS No. 108: Table II.  Federally the lowest it can be is 22".. But I will dig through my tome to find you the specifics on those you bolded

EDIT: Of which I located Chapter 347.09 subsection c (2). States no more than 54 inches, and no less then 24.  So I was off when I said 30. But it still validates your "sarcasm" of yes, some cars DO in fact "Need" Lift kits to be driven in my area. Such as older accords and civics to name a few, that have the headlights at the EXACT level off 22" as per the FMVSS mentioned earler.

I put the S13 master in my S12. I just swapped the rods instead of having to weld anything.

Its sad that the s13 master and the s12 master are the same casting, and the difference in price for a new one is about 40 dollars. Because the rod length is different. It takes 3 minutes to take out a circlip and swap parts.

Sigh. The powers that be setup the prices that rob...

Who really cares. It's a work truck for him. Battle damage is a medal of honor for my hauling/mudding trucks. Besides, it's just a bumper. I understand David point of view on that completely. Trucks are meant to be used and abused. Not to be spotless and clean. That just shows it was never used for it's intended purpose.

Is the axle hitting the exhaust the cause of it falling off all the time? Or was there enough clearance for it?

Also. Where were your mounting points? More points, less likely to break.

2 inches is still a good amount man. As long as it doesn't drop below the bottom of the wheel (Into the realm of the tire), with a stiff suspension (Which I assume you have, as you've said it), and it being a track car. Good to go. If it breaks, meh. Whatever. if it gets dented. Whatever. It's just an exhaust

Tuning and cheap don't usually go together, unless you do nearly all the work.
You could get a mail order tune from Enthalpy or JWT, but those aren't that cheap either ($300+).

david wen you run your turbo manifold if it is the same one as mine, it will set the turbo right next to the master cyl resivor, to fix this go to the jusnkyard and pull the resivior of a first gen eclipse un screw the two bolts and pull the little plug fittings out of the master itself. go home remove your resivor and pop the eclipse on in and youll e set. i spent all day at the junk yard poping hoods to find on that would finally work...

I'm sorry... Mine's Automatic temperature controlled 210,000 BTU Forced air garage heating goodness. It can run jet fuel A or B, diesel, kerosene, 50/50 Kerosene/used oil, or 60/40 diesel/used oil mix... It has a 4 foot "Do not walk zone" in front of it, otherwise things spontaneously combust



It's 20 degrees outside. And in a month, it will be 50 degrees less than that. I need a much beefier heater than an oil wick type. A ceiling mounted electric one like you used to have would be nice. But I can't afford that electricity bill unless it heated my entire house also.

BUT! For VA, I can see that oil wick one working perfect for ya.

david you dont need keys to start a nissan!!

there is a small phillips screw opposite the key, that holds the ignition switch to the key cyliner. when you pull it out you can use flat head or whatever to start the car.

then, drill the 2 snapped off bolts out of the lock cylinder and remove it from the column so you dont have to worry about the lock.

if its like other nissans, they are pretty interchangeable.

i had the ignition lock cylinder from my s13 on my 87 hardbody pickup, it bolted right up.

could i hammer a flat head into the screws? and try to twist them out?

Most of the time they've worked loose over the years, you could probably just turn them out by hand.
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: Frank on 08:46:14 PM / 30-Nov-09
use a punche to hammer the head counterclockwise, thats the real way to do it
if you don't care about them you can just drill the heads off, it's a pretty soft material.
The keyswitch from my 71 datsun 510 is pretty similar to a s13 one ... you can get a new one at the scrapyard for peanuts

However i would remove it if you intend to race the car, these thing can go wrong anytime and can really scare the shit out of you

here's a funny reminder ahah

i disconnected the rear half, then hung it.. but my bearing driveshaft mount thingy is worn out and it slipped out.

so i hammerd the shaft back in. it took forever to hammer it off. sheesh
it still works though.. i drifted all last event on it.

look how close it was to grinding down to the spline... maybe 30 more minutes of driving i would have not been able to drift

K been neglecting your thread until tonight, just been busy...

Pro's: Repainting the engine bay. Looks like it's coming along good.

Con's: I like KA's. I like SR's. I don't like a car with an identity crisis. Pick and engine platform and STICK with it for a change, so you can actually finish it

I don't doubt you can do it from a technical standpoint, but are you committed to a plan now?

Edit: Oh and BTW, you're gonna want to upgrade to an aftermarket radiator, the S12 one is "ok", but you're drifting so you don't get as good an airflow to begin with, and the biggie FMIC will further reduce the stock radiator's effectiveness. Mishimoto is your friend.

Actually i run a larger intercooler than that on my s14,  SR turbo fills it up to 13psi at 3.7k rpm so i wouldn't worry about it(don't think there is THAT big of a difference between s13 and s14 turbo's). Oil pan is a good idea because the 3.4 quarts it takes could get hot fast, i would suggest a cx racing oil cooler also there cheap and iv purchased a few of there cooling products off ebay as well as some of my friends. all of us have gotten great products! id say worry about making that motor last, get a diff turbo later blow the fuc* out of the one you got first by drifting the shit out of it

Post by: Arro on 02:45:33 AM / 30-Dec-09
It's not a good idea, maybe you're getting 13 psi signal in the boost gauge line, but you're overspinning your tiny T25 to do it, meaning you are heating up the air a lot.... so the big IC is only about as effective as a medium or smaller IC.

Also, are we talking T25 or T25G? there's a noticable difference in the flow map for each.

Even with a T28 I still wouldn't use that big of an intercooler, there's a point when it's just too big. Usually when it starts to eclipse the radiator, IMO.

I could see that if say, you were going to be running a Super 60 at 1bar, but not a T2 flanged turbo.

But hey, whatever, it's your car!

David, i was looking at your I/C issue and maybe you could flip it over so you have the piping in the bottom?

It will mean slightly longer piping but at least you can have headlight with it!

Also i gotta admit, at the beginning your car was super ghetto but you keep making it better and better! keep the good work!

Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: Arro on 06:52:29 PM / 30-Dec-09
Ok so a T28 is better, yes, but I think Matt is onto something here... this is a BIG IC. The kind you typically see on drag-tuned turbocars running big, laggy turbos that have violent engagement at peak boost. A T28's prime advantage is spool, with still decent flow, but would be better paired with something a third less smaller than this IC here, or even half as big.

David, you might want to gather more opinions on this, maybe even talk to Turbonetics (a phonecall to those guys is often very enlightening), and see what you think after that, before you start fabbing. You might have to choose between either your current T28 and a *different* intercooler, or this big intecooler with aa different turbo and T3 flanged Egay manifold like I suggested above.

It's not a good idea, maybe you're getting 13 psi signal in the boost gauge line, but you're overspinning your tiny T25 to do it, meaning you are heating up the air a lot.... so the big IC is only about as effective as a medium or smaller IC.

Also, are we talking T25 or T25G? there's a noticeable difference in the flow map for each.

I Have a t28 also but what im saying is my intercooler witch is a little bigger than his and is full at 3700rpms and 13psi.... so i dont think its a problem. i can see if i was running 17psi and with my little t28 and i didnt get max boost until 5k ish then it would be pushing it. I have been running this for a year and a half, checked for shaft play about 2 months ago and it was in great shape.

so stay with the intercooler you have its fine, just drive it to death. (my I/C i got a deal on to hence why its so large but better than stock s14 i/c ewwwww)

I would love to see a thermocouple readout before your TB to see how how that air is.
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: tommy on 07:19:29 AM / 31-Dec-09
What people tend to forget is that the I/C is already full of air while you are running at idle... when you stomp on the gaz, it doesn't have to "full" first in order to get air to the engine.  Since air as a viscosity, the curent air that sits in the I/C will be pushed by the air comming from the turbo and so on....

That is why you can run a remote mount turbo and still get decent spool time and throttle response.  Don't forget that the lenght of the pipe that connect the turbo to the TB in a remote mount setup as about the same volume or air then this I/C as, if not more.  What a big I/C will add is restriction to the air flow, and a slight drop in pressure, but the bigger volume adds to counter act this effect.  More volume at lower pressure = same flow.  Of course if you are running a turbo to own bragging rights on "how much pressure you can run" it will not do, but if you own a turbo to increase flow (total volume of air that gets IN the engine) in order to make more power, this I/C will get the job done. IMO

Monster intercooler = Big air tank, it takes time to pressurize.

A T2 with that IC is like trying to fill a car tire with a bike pump, it can be done, but it's gonna take all day!

I know he isn't running a T2, but for the analogy it works.

If it's a bar/plate design, it might flow ok. So performance might not suffer too much, because flow is still "good", but it will take time to pressurize.

That's why I went with a 26"x8"x3" IC with decently tapered end tanks, it might not flow the best, but it's efficiency is really nice. And because of the size, it doesn't take long to fill. Plus I can snake the piping around the radiator and have really short piping.

that is exactly it praizewood. Almost all fully prepped race and drift cars are stitch welded...it make the chassis so much stiffer. And then throw a cage on top of that and bam, you have have a drift, track, or rally tank.

I've been using the same welder, its my buddies.  ue wire speed is good on 2-3 but u need to CRANK the heat all the way up.  no birdshit beads and you can move faster.

ur stitching the wrong way as well.  go along the seam in 1" to 1.5" beads.  Do the structural areas first and then decide if u wanna do more.  And you'll have to remove the seam sealer.  Sterling described trouble welding on seams with seam sealer because of the sealer bubbling.  Not that he couldnt get the welds done, just that it was an annoyance.  Ur on the right track doin the floor supports keep it up.

do the bay.  foam the pillars and rails.  dope s12 chassis

Post by: IggyEGuana on 02:02:03 AM / 05-Jan-10
no seam welding is when u weld the entire length of the seam up solid.  u dont wanna do that.  too much heat it'll distort the car.

googled it

u can just tack the seams but make the tacks closer together like they did on this car.  pretty sick build

no need to go back over anything.  MAX the heat and keep the wire a bit slow.  Then you can weld fast and get shit done quicker

ill figure it out


heres pictures of the sr


one owner since its been shipped over, ive riddin in the s13, drove it, and have watched it for about a year since it was swapped, around 20k or so driven on the whatever mileage it consumed in japan
used only mobil 1 oil under 3k everytime kept seriously bone stock. not even a bov. just a front mount thats all

on the bone stock t25 with stock boost and everything it puts out 193 rwh on the dynojet


it has greddy RAS and i ahve a freddy oil pan i might decide to fit (the stock oil pan has a indentation of the stock s13 sway bar from heating a rock awhile ago)


front main seal was changed before the wreck, ill be changing the rear main, valve cover, and simple important gaskets.

im adding my gt2860r and running stock boost until i get some injecters and everything planned out.


from the wreck the coolant elbow was broken, ive aquired a new one


also looking to trade my #62 ecu for a #63 so i dont have to use the stupid trans sensors. if not. its whatever


im making my own chassis harness to power this motor. more to come on that

paying 1k for it that i have friday, this is why i havent posting so many pics of it yet. but i am 100 percent positive im gonna dedicate myself now.
but its been in my garage for months LOL
1k includes... RAS, harness (uncut), trans, driveshaft, ecu, no turbo

It should be the same. The only thing that changes is the length of the trans, but the KA trans should be the same length as that SR trans. Some people on KA-T.org have said it is stronger, while others say it is essentially the same inside. Either way, it's probably not any stronger.

Try swapping the whole powertrain, and if something doesn't fit, change the bellhousing and do it with the KA trans. There's your solution.

I will toss in my 2cents with the welding here.

the lincoln wp100 will do the job just fine.  I've done all major structural repairs and reinforcements with it on all the cars I've done.

Stitch or seam welding is a bitch.  not only do you have all the surface prep time, but all the seam sealer shit that is actually IN the seams will NOT come out with any form of tool save a torch, and will bubble up and make welding a pain in the ass.  You will also likely warp the chassis a bit, mine sure did.

A cage is both simpler and similarly effective stiffening-wise.  and when you hit something, the whole chassis doesn't take the blow, so its an easier more localized repair.  good for drifting.

my vote is save the time and effort and just put a cage in it.

I would put up some pics for you, but I cannot access my photobucket, and I don't remember the email addy I used to register it, which is a bitch, considering I've got hundreds of photos there.  Its only been 6 months or so, what fucking bullshit.

stitch welding,
(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll291/cheetahblue/chassis/IMG_0739.jpg)
the strange looking bead above I think is some of the burn-thru/penetration from the other side iirc...

stitching can also be short 1" or so beads with gaps in between as well.  This ^ type of spot/stitch is much quicker tho.

not something I'd care to repeat, unless I had the chassis acid dipped to remove all paint and sealer, then maybe I'd do this, but again, a cage is just easier imo, and less work/transferable if you wreck it bad.

i have to figure out which way this is gonna work for clocking the turbo. i realize i dont have that much to move around with since i dont have a clocking adapter kit or whatever



heres a fancy zip tie mock up.

tell me what isnt legit, and what should  be moved/clocked

I dont think your waste gate and dump tube will work their. it is a tight area. you will have room to put it in a similar location but I would wait till you have the engine in. I went and looked at mine and it looks like you would be hitting the brake booster if you mounted it their.

Not an SR, but whatever:

Just don't try doing it with that MIG welder of yours, it won't last. Welding cast iron isn't as easy as steel.

I've been thinking of doing this my self, but I don't have the external wastegate, flanges, or piping.
If I do it, I'll probably put a different flange on too (T3 probably).

why are u using an external wastegate?  i dont get it.  ur turbo is internally gated.

find someone who is switching to top mount and trade them the external wastegate for their used tubular bottom mount mani.

CHRA needs to be clocked so its vertical (oil drain straight down) or with the drain slightly towards the block like 7 o'clock.  Compressor housing needs to be clocked about 3 hours counterclockwise from that position.  u wanna test fit some though with ur IC piping.  u can clock it to work best with the pipes.

A little late to the game on the seam/stitch welding, but the areas you see with major gaps are to account for metal expansion. Seeing that you're at 30*F, it looks like a really huge gap, but it has all been accounted for. The chassis' here look much "tighter" if you will since it's around 70*F-90*F. Just something to keep in mind before you seam weld the entire car. I'm actually on heat transfer and thermodynamics so it all actually makes sense why those gaps exist.

Not in backwards. when the seal is channeled like that, the hollow side of the C always goes inside. Otherwise it would never properly tap into place.

Good as gold

Also, The RTV is just fine as long as you got everything covered. But don't forget to lube up the inside of the seal (Mating surface of the rotating mass) with some grease before you start it up. Could melt out and leak right away.

I wasn't sure what side was the oil side on that part. If the camera is the side the lubricant of choice will be on, then Like you said, yes. It's backwards.

Quote from: tommy
What people tend to forget is that the I/C is already full of air while you are running at idle... when you stomp on the gaz, it doesn't have to "full" first in order to get air to the engine.  Since air as a viscosity, the curent air that sits in the I/C will be pushed by the air comming from the turbo and so on....

That is why you can run a remote mount turbo and still get decent spool time and throttle response.  Don't forget that the lenght of the pipe that connect the turbo to the TB in a remote mount setup as about the same volume or air then this I/C as, if not more.  What a big I/C will add is restriction to the air flow, and a slight drop in pressure, but the bigger volume adds to counter act this effect.  More volume at lower pressure = same flow.  Of course if you are running a turbo to own bragging rights on "how much pressure you can run" it will not do, but if you own a turbo to increase flow (total volume of air that gets IN the engine) in order to make more power, this I/C will get the job done. IMO

Tom

The only problem that I see with your analogy (which I may be completely wrong...in which case I apologize in advance if I am) is that Air is a gas and therefore compressible. The whole system must first reach the same pressure which a big IC will make it take much longer. Not because of restriction, but because of the sheer volume of air that must be compressed first.

OEM bolts don't usually have a listed rating, retail bolts however require a marking.

Again, I wouldn't use grade 8.8, but would rather have 10.9 or 12.9. It's holding your flywheel and clutch assembly in place and at a high RPM, I wouldn't want it flying off... Would you?

Edit:
Just an FYI, 8.8 bolts have a tensile strength of 600 MPa (mega pascals), 10.9 is 830 MPa, that's quite a difference if you ask me.

i cant flip it upside down, im keep my bumper support and id have to notch it out on the chassis where it mounts, and use more piping

But you just answered how you could flip it the "proper" way
"
I'm being picky yes. It should be fine with your turbo, but anything bigger and I would flip it to be the "proper" way. For future reference, best cooling is hot air in at the highest inlet.
Im putting proper in parentheses because it's fairly subjective, even though it's just simple physics

well iff i get a t28, ill probally get a smaller i/c, run it normalways, and get 45 degree elbows welded to it for the midmount, and redo the piping. atm i just wanna drift!!

That's the spirit!!!!!!!

Oh, and your welds look good for what your workin with. My compliments. Just make sure the motor torquing won't pop off the piping. If you have the poly mounts on there, or pucks. Should be golden

Oh come one, I can make welds that look like TIG welds with my Handy MIG.


Whatever works man, ghetto/rigged/ratty/whatever seems to be the "in" thing these days anyway.

Oh, and the exhaust will clear fine with the stock cast O2 elbow, but be careful of aftermarket ones, they're usually made for RHD cars and will put the elbow into the frame rail (ask how I know.)
If you get an aftermarket one, make SURE it's make to fit LHD cars.

Nope. I've used chains to do that very thing before. Just to prevent it from torquing over in any forward gear. Old tried and true hot rod/rat rod/muscle car/drifter trick

Post by: David B on 11:04:55 PM / 09-Mar-10
heres goes the wiring ideas. like i stated, im making my own chassis harness to run the motor, due to my stock harness falling apart and catching on fire a few times

this car is for track use, im not using wipers, or windows, or radios and shit. so dont lecture me please

all the plugs are now inside the car, for the chassis so dont mind the pics if there outide the car

i need to find out, which 12 volt power goes where, and what do i do? hook a multimeter up when im done add ecu power and figure out which fuse i need per wire?


so here, from the battery. its gonna T off from the battery post, one side for switched stuff like, lights, fuel pump, E fans, and then the one side for motor. ill be fusing both power guaged wires wires and on the headlight/switches side ill be using the switches on the ground side, and also using a similar distribution block to fuse them

i figure this should be sorta ka related


MOTOR SIDE

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.
from battery, where its gonna be ted off
(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/105_4112.jpg)



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.
to here, on this distribution block, the old connecter that goes to the starter from the motor harness will connect, which goes back to the battery as shown before

i might be using 2 of these on this motor side

(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/105_4113.jpg)



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.

plug from the ecu (ill edit later when i figure out which is which)
(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/105_4114.jpg)


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.
plugs from the motor harness, that used to plug in where the s13's battery was, they plgu into the chassis harness. isnt this the spot, where my main functions will be??
(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/105_4115.jpg)


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.
new problem, these 3 plugs. look like they come from the lower motor harness, do they have to do with the trans speed sensors, i dont mean the literal sensors off the trans, but are these from the signals they send? or oil pressure? or anything important ecu related. that i might have to manually tap into a ecu pin? will i need to use these? will i need a auto ecu to bypass them? are these the wrong plugs im talking about?
(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/105_4116.jpg)


if its just for the oil pressure and water temp etc. i dont care, ill be putting aftermarket ones on,



so does this seem possible? i understand ill have to wire my own push start (which i have a heavy solenoid to use) etc. but that still is in the distance from where im at now

#3 is the ECU to dash plug. You can get the water temp signal from there. Oh and also cold start signal wire goes here too.

#4 is the ECU power(gray) and signal wires(brown) The gray is for the ECU power, ignitor, o2, etc. The Brown is for the sensors, like AC idle bump, PS idle bump, and whatever else your SR20 is supposed to be equipped with.

#5 is the lower harness, which is for the starter power/switch, oil pressure gauge, alternator power and signal, and transmission switch sensors. It should be really easy to figure out.

Don't be complaining! You realize I live in MONTANA!!!! The only people with anything but riced out civic's are a few of my friends with S13's and S14's! No drift events. Some weird little SCCA events and that's it. So be happy for what you got!    And it snow's a lot so i barely get to drive the S12 in the winter!

congrats on getting it running!

some info on the wiring.  you must already know some of it tho

(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/105_4114.jpg)
The SR start signal should be the orange wire if its the same as the KAs.

(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/105_4115.jpg)
main EFI connections, you must have already made these...if its like the KA, black/yellow=power for air regulator, black/white=ECU power when key on, red=power all the time, black/red=thicker power wire for coil and injectors, and apparently there is a brown wire 12v for the o2 sensor.... read http://www.frsport.com/SR20DET-Swap-Engine...-SR20_t_26.html (http://www.frsport.com/SR20DET-Swap-Engine-Harness-Wiring-Diagram-Guide-SR-SR20_t_26.html) for more detail....

(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/105_4116.jpg)

the fat two prong connector is the connection for the alternator.  Im assuming youre running the SR lower harness, but basically there needs to be a fat power wire running to the isolated stud (look for the plastic insulation) on the alterator, thats where one of the wires in this connector runs to.  the other wire is for the field control, there should be a two terminal plug that actually clips in to the alternator. One terminal should have a fat wire and the other terminal is probably a yellow/red or white/red smaller wire.  Reality is that these two wires just splice together later down the line, so you can run a nice piece of wire between the two and run a fused connection directly to the battery.  use a fusible link or something like a megafuse just in case something happens.  its a bit hard to explain, i can take some pics or something if you want some clarification....

those other two connectors arent necessary unless you want backup lights.

Which reminds me. I know of a set of Emotor (Yeah, I know) Coilovers for 250. Seized ride height, but good dampners. Would be perfect for your rears

dude i dunno. but everytime i let off the clutch hard i heard a big thud from the rear


its a stage 4 comp clutch, btw it works great! im suprised the diff welds are holding up so far...

kinda sounds like when my driveshaft bolts were loose, but there not i checked..
im guessing its the links on the axle? could i add a panhard bar?




the spring and shock setup, im gonna keep for awhile. just drop in a tad bit stiffer springs and probally get new shocks

^Although there are no subframe bushings on a SRA, I second this comment as it is probably the 4 link bushings.

Mine does it too, and the bushings are the culprit. Only happens when accelerating and up shifting hard/during clutch kicks.

I'm still working on some kind of solution for it though. I might end up turning some delrin on the lathe later on once I get the axle off to weld the diff. I will have a solution for ya in that department, as windo-weld doesn't have a high enough of a shore rating (I think it's around 30 if I recall correctly) for it to be of any significant durability. I have a couple ideas floatin around in my head for it. but I must test em before I give any verdict

A panhard bar would be of zero use

isnt there a link for aftermarket links? they were expensive though.

can i go with solid bushings? like washers and shit, metal to metal? i dont mind added noise. as long as it doesnt harm my chassis

  thanks, im gonna keep it stock. im scared to take it over 7 psi. i want it reliable and i dont feel like building a motor just yet.

my plans are to drift alot, get these cut knuckles in, new p/s rack. add power steering, work on suspension, buy some wide wheels. etc.

That's one of the ideas in the back of my head. You could certainly go with it (I'm a cheapo too. I won't put a huge chunk of cash into throwaway vehicle parts, such as that)

One of my ideas was machining a hockey puck to the dimensions. It's cheap, machining it wouldn't be that hard, and it sure beats making a ton of work out of it. My idea was to drill out the hole that is the size of the bolt, and use that hole to turn it down on a lathe so that it would be the exact dimensions (As the newly made hole would be direct center)
Easy peasy

With the clutch you have? The stock clutch will hold 300 no problem.
12PSI on a T25g will only get you maybe 260, depending on a few things.

+1 the stock clutch will hold 300... just like my sr will hold 12 psi.. but it wont last.






my next step is just 10 psi. but i want to have the money for some things etc. before i ever decide changing the boost up

Uhh.... It took 4 years to do anything to my SR at 12PSI, and my stock clutch held just fine, I put a ton of abuse on my clutch too.

Though with the stock 370CC injectors, it does start to run 100% duty cycle (though keeping an 11.5:1 AFR), but if you don't bounce it off the rev limiter, it'll be fine.

10PSI stock would be completely safe.

Oh, and don't be such a girl!

Post by: seishuku on 04:23:22 PM / 29-Mar-10
Adjustable wastegate actuators work by pretensioning the spring inside, much like preload on a "coilover" suspension.

If you're going to be hitting the rev limit a lot, I would get some rocker arm stoppers, I would lower the rev limiter to 6800RPM.
It won't make more power past 6500RPM anyway, so what's the point of taking it past that... But if you must, rocker arm stoppers are better than nothing. Even though I don't like them, it's a bandaid.

Post by: NissanNate on 10:26:07 PM / 29-Mar-10
rocker arm stoppers are fairly inexpensive so if you are worried about, it go that route. But honestly sr20 are pretty bulletproof, on stock psi you should be able to abuse the shit out of it without any worry. I know a guy who was running 28psi on a stock sr20 (internal wise) and drag raced the shit out of it for a year and a half. just say'in.

take stoppers out and avoid damage.
Title: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : S13 Stuff!
Post by: seishuku on 03:47:53 PM / 30-Mar-10
The rocker is going to go bouncing around in the head one way or another, RAS or not.
At least the RAS will help hold them in there at the OE rev limit (7600RPM), if you wanted to take it to 8000+, then I'd say forget about it.

Edit:
I should say, if you're going to be running it at or near the factory limit, the RAS will at least keep things together, but any higher and you'll probably still kick out a arm or break one.
But I seriously doubt you'll break one at stock limits, with stock springs and valves.

You might get lucky when one pops out and not damage anything, but it's unlikely, and you'll still lose the guide and shim and have to probably dig that out of the oil pan.

I don't know from my own experience, but I do know my friend with a Fully built SR does not run the Rocker arm stoppers, and was advised to do this from Mazworx who build his motor. I would say they know what they are talking about from their 1100hp s15 drag car. But that is just my 2 cents. Not trying to cause any problems Matt because I am positive you know more about SR's than me.... Just sharing what I have heard.

If anyone remembers Before i picked up my VQ35 i was going to go vh route. After alot of research its completely not worth it  by the time you buy the vh, 300zx tranny, adapter plate, fix oil starvation issues and make it fit you could of purchased a VQ35 and have more reliable power and much more room to upgrade! Im one of those dont cross bread brands guys so why not do something like a super charged VG30de or a single turbo VG30de. I drew up a bunch of plans on how to make a single turbo VG fit easily. id be happy to share

VH is unique i geuss but its <VQ and VG

Id say go big with a VG30DE single turbo at like 14psi and with a rom tune at 400whp  (and of course you will need a few other upgrades like intake exhaust injectors.)
If you decide to go VG30de single turbo id be happy to scan some of my ideas

I also have several friends that daily drive their SR's and make good power out of them. Think about all that extra weight in the front of the car that is unneeded when you can get the SR the same power pretty easy.  Much easier to stick with the SR and do some upgrades and you will have a very quick, fun car.

stock angle, for reference
(http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo119/whatrwedoingnow/105_4177.jpg)


i put my "mildly" cut knuckles on. i say, mild. because the drifter/shop who previously owned these knuckles said they didnt have enough angle, they werent aggresive enough. so instead of cutting the same ones he went and got new ones.


i eyeballed the alignment and DAMN. my tie rod is hitting the control arm at lock, and im pretty sure the wheel would be hitting the frame at full lock. im gonna have to make a stopper on the control arm for the knuckle. this shit is wack

i havent even added tie rod spacers yet. im pretty satisfied so far for the amount i spent


sway bar to sway bar is 3 turns.. i know the rack by itself does around 3.5 so im missing about .5-.5 ish turn

i was outside auto expectations and i noticed a half ass roll bar/harness bar for a s13 coupe that was never finished or used, asked about it, need a bar that gioes across, some more hammering, etc.


it actually fits perfectly tensioned in if i take a rachet strap and pull the two tubs together in the front, allows clearence. then when i take the strap off its locked in. its not getting welded in until i get more money and tubing for the harness. just a temp harness bar before i get cash for a cage

brembo rotors, cheap duralast pads for now, s110 calipers in (i really missed having disk brakes!!) diff is in, fluid in. gotta make a new bracket for my e brake cable (more info on that later)

bolting the 4 point in now, sourcing pipe, getting it all welded and my harness in for the ods event

missing a caliper banjo bolt. ugh. and i need a hand to bleed the brakes.


OMG MASSIVE SPACERZ

I personally dont think it looks bad, but thats just my opinion. As fas as styling goes, David is the first person to try it on a s12 (that i know of). Maybe after a few tweaks its will be a world wide s12 FAD

i love breakin shit!! this is awesome, my diff assploded, i got positive camber on my front right tire, my turbo gasket went, my downpipe gasket went, all this first month of hard driving at the 1/8 mile and drifting.



it felt good to work on my car and replace my turbo gasket


poop. it takes about an 40 min to remove my turbo assembly

wobble extensions = win. i can now get to all my manifold nuts with rachet/socket

Hey David good idea with the oem gaskets i went threw two sets of after market ones myself. Best thing i ever did was fork out the money for a s15 7 layer oem mani gasket and oem turbo gasket. Shittiest thing ever is the first tinme it happens most people think there turbo blew  

Dont know about on the s12's but on my s14 i have to take off my dump pipe to take out my turbo out  so to make it easier i purchased some Allen head bolts for the dump pipe makes it a world easier!

done with the rear. new rachet strap and mounting point for it.  wonder if ti will look lower.. i cut a good half pinky length out of the pole

the billsteins actually arent blown, they still are decently hard to put down, and feel great!

great shock i recommend to anyone (who doesnt have adjustables and utar sheet)

and since i lowerd the shock mount then i should have the same play as before. so they will last

800$ for materials and labour? did you strip the interior yourself in advance? Thats cheap as hell!

hey, I totaly just realized you're solid rear axle... Im gonna have to go back through your thread and check for any and all picks.. hopefully I can find some more to better show how its all hooked up and where it mounts n how etc etc. I envy you!!

I assume you're not putting the full interior back in, but just curious if your gona put the interior partialy back in.. Im sure theres still room for speakers in the doors even with the cage!! haha

David, what ever happened to when you used to be this kid who barely even knew what a distributor was, or how to change a starter?

I think back to when you first came on the boards, compared to now.. rolling a caged sr20 swapped drift rig.

Wow. Just wow.

floor mats... ??? seriously? any track/race/autocross etc event I've been to, they make you toss em out! (Okay okay, I've only made it to ONE autocross.. hehe..)

I guess it is nice to keep the rug clean.. oh wait.. are you even putting that in? haha

I think it kinda sucks that you're ditching the interior, but I totaly understand as well.

I just love seeing a caged car with all its interior intact. its just soo sweet.

but yeah. be looking forward to more picks n hopefully some vids!

what kinda of cage is that? like how many point/style/what is it good for legaly? looks an awefull lot like a sort of stock car cage from when I was a kidlet, cept it doesnt go to/carty on into the engine bay and such.

very simple too install, though this unit has SAE thread pitch or something, and my car is metric. so im probally gonna have to just cut/flare and add the right fittings on

^I like this idea better than what I'm about to say

They do have adapters at autozone/napa/advance/oreilly's/carquest/bumper2bumper/etc for it all... They're six inches long and go from the metric on the car to the SAE. I think the part number is 27851

Sweeet! Well done! Looks like a comonly used one too.

I like Iggys idea on the mounting re-inforcment.

I remember somewhere talking about hooking the brake up to an actuator etc run off a push button mounted on the shifter knob..     or maybe I kept that one to myself... ? hehe

personaly I never had a problem with my normal stock e-brake.. until I left it on halfway around a course once in my excited grabbin at things. Although it still works pretty good, enough to lock up the rears still...

new shoes and adjustment would do wonders, however theres no hope for it to have the strength of a hydro-handbrake..

If you think you are having issues with the Sr20, (very minor ones I might add like lean/rich etc...) I can assure you its not going to be much better if you go to something different.  Its a damned near perfect engine you got so my advice, build this block properly, take your time, dont half ass and slowly work out the tuning kinks and you shall be very happy.  You run an engine pretty damned hard when drifting, build it right now and enjoy.   Fast, reliable, cheap...Pick only two, you arnt an exception.   Cheers  Tyler.


Ohh, and unless you havn't figured it out yet, Stop driving with coolant leaks and Stop dropping nails in your fucking trannys!!!

the e brake was interesting, it worked great. but i didnt use it much. im not use to it.


i was just getting my runs done as fast as possinle without spinning out so i could dump water back into the radiator as it spewed out of the exuast


what it takes to do the job right!

SAFC = engine death sentence.

If you want to avoid a lean condition, clean your MAFS, clean the injectors, and run a little richer of a tune. Oh, and get a GOOD wideband and a nice visible gauge.

Post by: seishuku on 09:21:07 PM / 27-Oct-10
Adjustable fuel pressure regulator is a real easy way, but really the SR stock tune runs really rich as it is IMO.
ROM tuning is another easy DIY way too.

But please, PLEASE stay away from that SAFC, it accounts for damn near 70% of SR failures out there... Because people are dumb shits and think it's a magic power making device and allows them to jack their boost up to 1.5bar with out bigger injectors.
Most people just don't realize how an SAFC works, it does more to your ECU than just change fueling.

(I hate them with a passion BTW, as if you didn't notice already)

Was just an example.

If the engine is 100% stock (boost and all), then you should never need one of those.

For a racheting torque wrench it does, those springs get weak over time and need to be recalibrated. As for the scale those rarley go out of tune.

This I need, still got a snap on click type, I will probably use it for the first 2 torqueing steps

Not THAT often... Depends on use and abuse.
If you're a dick and don't turn it back to zero when you done with it, then yeah, it'll probably need to be calibrated.

But that shouldn't matter anyway, because you shouldn't be using a click torque wench when building engines anyway! :P

Why not? And im not trying to be a smart-ass, i really dont understand why not. As long as its calibrated properly i dont see why it would be any less effective than a dial type.

Can you be absolutely sure that it's set to the right torque?
Most I've used are just a dial it "close enough" deal (digital doesn't count), a scale type you SEE the torque you're at while you apply it.

I like seeing what's going on while I do it.

+1 on the dial torque wrench, and they are so much cheaper, like 1/4 the price of a good ratcheting type althought they don't look as cool....

Good choice on ARP, I would use them on the rods too, don't reuse you stock rod bolts, they will probably stretch to cause the famous sr20 rod knock and most importantly, you don't want those to fail spinning at 7000 rpm.... will make a big chunk of worthless alluminium... or a hell of an expensive paper weight and you already have the ca20 and ka24 for that use ;)
Title: Re: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : rebuilding sr
Post by: seishuku on 03:52:34 PM / 05-Nov-10
Not to be a buzz kill, but ARP mains will distort the main journals differently than OEM bolts.
Most people that plan on using studs have the main journals line bored, otherwise you're taking risk of spinning a main bearing.

Rod bolts and head studs are ok to use in replacement though (since OEM rod hardware is already a stud, and the head surfaces should be milled flat).

Post by: seishuku on 03:47:26 PM / 16-Nov-10
No binding, but what kind of oil clearance do you have? If it's too tight anywhere on the bearing, you'll risk spinning it.
Just IMO, it's your engine.
Title: Re: S12 Sr20 Drift Car : rebuilding sr
Post by: tommy on 04:15:13 PM / 16-Nov-10
^^^What is said...

Plastigauge it just to be sure... better be safe than sorry... you should check every bearing surface while the engine is out of the car... make sure you rebuilt it right the first time... nothing sucks more than skipping a few step to get it on the road faster/cheaper and having to go through it all in a couple of miles.... just my 2 cents

pilot bearing install

to remove the pilot bushing i use a ton of grease, and a socket with a welded end on it, to force the auto bushing back out.

9/16ths socket for auto bushings

just, smack that fucker in there with a hammer real hard (make sure you pack with lots of grease)
sometimes, i add some eletrical tape to the socket for a better seal

Only if you do it wrong. by wrong meaning not having a good seal and end up bottoming the socket out before the bushing comes out.

you mean, crank thrust washers?

no not at all, and you deffinetly shouldnt bottom the socket out much
has to be packed with grease
you need to hit it hard enough, so that it feels like your hitting pure metal though, if your wacks feel kinda cushioned then your either A shoving grease out around the socket (where eletrical tape helps), or b not hitting hard enough

ive done it, around 8 or so times... never had a issue with any motors..



did wonder if AUTO cranks and balanced for tq converters though, and if clutches threw the balance off

also, the crank on MT trans's has a PIN, for the flywheel, auto does not..
but i make sure i line up the hole where the pin was before i bolt it down

All KA cranks are externally balanced.
They're just not fully counterweighted.
