Yeah, it has more now. A few scoobies have tried and failed to keep up. With current turbo around 300 to the ground. It's tuned for a gt2535 but that turbos bearings blew after the tune. Have to get a new CHRA for it. The current turbo will go on my ca18det im going to be building.

Yamazaki told me you had it! Bout damn time you posted it up! I'm a sucker for all RWD/AWD Nissans! I toyed with the idea of importing a Cerfiro, but I'm still stuck on S13's and Pulsar's... haha

Have any shots of the rear? Interested of what you did back there...

think i might be able to get more shots tomorrow.

im stuck on 4 doors. i do also have a 180sx track only car as well. that is beat to all.

as for the rear. all i did was buy a tomei 2way in a s14 r200 housing already. bought a s14 rear subframe with the cusco suspension parts already on it. took the original electric hicas rear subframe out, swapped brakes and installed the s14 rear subframe as a entire peice. really easy when its all together only 4 major bolts attach it to the frame.

if you can get a cefiro you will never go back to the 2doors. 4 doors are the way to go.

Yeah, most all Nissan rear sub frames interchange. The beauty of Nissan's is they are a bit like Subaru's. So many parts can be swapped. I have a friend over here that has 5 S13's, coupes, hatches, and Verts. 3 of the 5 have RB's with one being a 26...

We are working on the ability to import, but it's hard over here. He wants a Ver V STi and I want a Toyota Hilux double cab really bad! I'm stuck on the 4 doors as well! :grin:

The cool thing about the Cefiro is it kinda looks like a Silvia 4 doors... haha... The only reason I'm stuck of Silvia's is that the one I had, was the first car I completely finished. I loved that car! Got 20-30 MPG with it, could drift super easy, and it was easy to get parts for.

haha.... The front of your crossmember covered in oil, thats when you know it's a Nissan! I like it! Kinda reminds me on our Infinitys, but way cooler!

Super cool Nissan! Way better than the Infinitys we have in the States. It looks like you could land a 747 on the trunk lid!! :shock:

it doesnt drip. i can leave my care for a week and no spots, driving i have no oil smell(transmission doesnt count when the boot it torn).
left side is from the leaky cruch gasket on the turbo oil fee, right side is from the oil change. nothing major is leaking. shit what car doesnt look like that when you take the time to look under it.

You guys were talking about Cefiros, how are they different from Infinity l30s?

(sorry to thread jack, but I am curious)

the infinity i30 is a cefiro in japan, but fwd. the last good cefiro is the a31 rwd, it shared suspension witht eh s13. this means there are many options. the a32 cefiro and the i30 are the same. fwd garbage!! teh only good fwd nissan is the b13 sentra/bluebird.

This is true... Only one I have that doesnt look like that is my Pulsar, but thats because I havent driven it yet! haha!!!!

Yeah, the one we got here is the crappy one. It's like having a FWD 300ZX, but still not even that cool. The RWD platform with Nissan is awesome! It has the perfect setup and you can do what you want, SR, RB, v8, what ever you want. Also, they look WAY better then ours!

I know it has been along time since I have done anything on this forum, but i'm still lurking around. earlier this year I took the laurel to a 36hr drift event. this is what happened. i'm on the phone with my wife telling her what happened. she really didn't care until I had to get a new car. will post up pictures of that one soon.
