I want those tail lights! Why did we get the ones that Nissan found in the utility parts bins? Euro cars always had the best shit!

Very cool build!  I'm definitely keeping an eye on this.  I think I like the "injection" pinstriping just under the hatch lip more than the turbo sticker.

I measured the Turbo striping and took some high def pictures, I'll post them this week. I'll also measure the injection striping and take some good pictures, I'm still thinking of maybe using one of these stripings on my new color scheme.

@VG30DETT, we get the taillights but you guys get the better engines! Which of both is the easiest to replace? :D :D :D
Do you only have the "Six pack" tail lights?

Indeed, the only reason I can think about is maybe because they wouldn't have a lot of profit unless they find a way to lower shipping costs :)

Yesterday i was able to remove the passanger-side front light and also the hood



This gave me the opportunity to do a quick testfit of the sideskirt and front fender. Fits quitte good, yet it will require some trimming and modifications to fit perfect. I'm also thinking of modifying the wheel arches on the inside so that I can fit a wide wheel underneath (I really like wide JDM style wheels):

well a buddy of mine was one of the first with that kit long time ago.....he wasnt pleased with the fitment. So did they get better? The Production Company in Poland even try to scam him^^ one of the reasons why iam staying away from this.

I wish they would make normal fender Replacements to safe some weight

fitment is far from perfect, will need some trimming, cutting and other adjustments. Passenger side is the baddest, the other side is pretty good (as far as I can see for now).

So what did I do this week:

I cut down the rusted bolts that were stuck so I could finally test fit the other side:







Stripped the engine bay even further



Started stripping the rear end



And the interior also:





Also grinded the wheel wells to have a better view on the rust





And finally I had 1 minute of silence for my 2 friends that were burried underneath my rear light :p

Yes, i share your opinion about the CA18ET :P

I'm now cleaning the CA18DET on the outside and then I'm gonna remove the oil-panel so that I can take a look at the crankshaft  :yes:

Lets hope I'll make it :P


At this very moment I'm cleaning the CA18DET, but I'm still wondering whether or not I'm gonna open this engine. It would be a shame to open an engine that might be in good condition (althought I don't know its' history). On the other hand he's sitting on an engine stand, so this would be the right moment to change some internals if I want to.

What I consider doing:
- New head gasket
- New head bolts (ARP)
- New main and piston bearings. Although I'm afraid of maybe break the crankcase because of the adhesive effect the gasket might have (this happens from time to time).

What do you guys think?







The engine bay also requires some attention :) :)

Do a compression test! This will tell you if the entire engine needs to come apart or not. If not, then at the very least I'd pop off the head and check out the pistons and cylinder bore, and take off the oil pan to inspect the bearings for any side to side or excessive forward to back play.

Some things that should be done on ANY motor swap are: Headgasket/bolts, water pump/thermostat, all of the gaskets, and maybe the oil pump depending on the condition.
Do it while you have the engine out! Nothing sucks more than having to park your car just after you got it running.

Good luck man :)

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.

Thx! I also can't wait, lol :D

After 3 weeks of too cold weather, temperatures finally went above 0 degrees. So today I could finally continue my project:

Almost done removing all the bits out of the engine bay:




And also started removing the crossmembers and suspension.





I've set the respray of the engine bay deadline to april. Let's see if I can make it :)
