Fuck you then, I'll take my movies, box of chocolates, bottle of wine and chloroform somewhere else.
Adding an SSD to that is kinda like strapping a 3 inch stainless HKS exhaust on a geo metro.

I do have a 1JZ sitting in my basement.. And I had considered it because IMO 1J > RB25

Motor might be ok, gonna drop the crank girdle and check the bearings this week. It will hurt to drain the $70 worth of royal purple though.. Ouch.

Well.. I guess TECHNICALLY it got sideways.. But it was so down on power I couldn't push wide, and it was actually cutting out mid corner as well..

Time for wideband and standalone..

So. I'm buying an S14 this weekend. I've got a need to drift like no other, I still plan on fixing the S12 but this will hold me over and ensure I "Do it right" and don't just rush it.

Rod and main bearings likely all need replacement, might be able to get away without a complete rebuild.. Will probably be dropping the crank to send it for polishing and perhaps to get the oil pump drive extended (common RB problem). Block also needs a piston oil squirter replaced (may explain some oil pressure issues)..

Short list of things for this winter: clean up wiring, new turbo manifold, new turbo, stainless downpipe, wideband O2

Bearings are ordered, moving house into a place with it's own garage.. Small but dry space to work.

Also, le S14 le wet.

Many improvements to the car's usability, reliability, and performance are underway..

The beginnings of a new exhaust manifold.. A ball bearing turbo of somewhat secret specs is being put into place.



A small heater core, with a custom made windshield defrost plenum adapter..



Heater core plugged into the plenum, also my new switch panel. Factory fusebox is going by the wayside in an attempt to further clean up the wiring mess.



FR sport completely shit the bed on my bearing order, I am still looking for bearings at the moment.
