This is the true love of my life, my 2000 Nissan 200sx S14A. It's a turbo thing.

At 19 I had my first turbo, xr2i rst, had it for 6 months

Image

Then.... For 4 months

Image

My First 200sx for 10 months and spent a fortune. 304bhp drift spec

Image
Image

Got a pic in Redline mag at a track day

Image

Then went sensible and regretted it, was one of the cleanest cars i've ever owned just didnt have the appeal of the sx

Image

Astra didn't last long so tried my luck with a Leon Cupra R. Maybe ruined it with the front mount

Image

Then decided cars were slow and got one of these, absolutely unreal but thought i was invincible

Image

All toys were sold and a house was bought.

Bought an xr2i, rolled it before fitting my 2.1zvh

Bought a knackered turbo'd saxo VTS, and JP4'd it and restored it to its former glory. C2 gt engine, drilled for the Saxo inlet, cams and springs and mage 148bph on the dyno with breathing mods

I bought the sx in November 2010 to replace my track fiesta project.

It was pretty stock but the appeal was the LPG conversion, thought i could use it as a daily and keep it stock. It came with a front mount intercooler and a gay 2.5" exhaust running 0.8bar on LPG. It worked out really cheap to run, bonus for my 52mile daily trip to work and back. Made me realise how crap it was in comparison to my old sx, so a few mods were in order. Before that though and only two days later, i whipped off the bumpers and painted them due to scuffs.

The 200sx / 240sx / Silvia is a popular car throughout Asia and the US so parts are plentiful and cheap as there's so much competition on the market. So first up was to stage 1 (260 - 270ish)

Walbro fuel pump
Induction kit
3" full exhaust system, both cats removed and only one box in the full system
HKS EVC boost controller
Fitted some KYB AGX adjustable dampers and eibach springs, beautiful ride and a 40mm drop.

Next up was to paint the Gewalt 3 piece splits, previous owner must have mistaken the car for a scoob with the blue and gold theme.

Image
Image

Started to strip them but stumbled upon a set of Nismo LM GT2's in a really good fitment 17 x 9 et20. So they were stripped, centres painted and fitted. Looking back now, i realise how lame she looked.

Image
Image
Image
Image

Fitted them but it looked gay on its current ride height. Some Apex coilovers were purchased the next day, fitted and dropped fairly low.

Image

Had a slight off thinking i could drift, destroyed a wheel and the front bumper. Unfortunately Nismo stopped making these wheels and could not track down a replacement. So while i had the bumper off to repair, i modded it a little and added clear indicators and srb front splitter.

Washer just removed and flushed, centre cross section cut out and flushed

Next up was the brakes, wanted a vast improvement but needed to fit my stock winter wheels. Decided on the Apex big fot kit.

310mm rotor
Alloy bells
spacer brackets
DS2500 pads
Braided lines front and rear.

Initially they were good but a trip to the 'green hell' killed them.

Image

So i got into the stance look, low and wide. So i scanned the net for ages to find some JDM spits to earn me lts of cool points with the cool kids. Found a set on piston-heads off a drift R34 for a good price, called him but they were sold so made him an offer he couldn't turn down.

Front 18 x 10 et15
Rear 18 x 11 et35

Image
Image
Image
Image


Wasn't sure if they were going to fit but i'd build the car around them if need-be. They came with silly big tyres but i needed stretch, big stretch. 225/40 were fitted to the fronts and 245/45 rear. I had to have all for arches rolled, pulled and flared. Lowered it some more for the 'hella flush' look.

Image
Image
Image
Image


Had to run alot of camber on the front to keep contact a minimum. A problem reared its ugly head, cut through the loom in the wheel arch. Repaired it are pulled it out of the way,

Post subject:  Re: JDM YO!

Run around like this for awhile, did a few other bits and bobs not really worth mentioning. Fitted a JDM rear bumper, spats, rare zenki skirts and despoilered the boot and brake light.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Had a trip booked to the Nurburgring with the owners club so more power was required.

HKS GT-RS turbo with braided lines
HKS stainless intake pipe
HKS manifold
HKS turbo elbow
Nismo 555 injectors
Japspeed super twin downpipe (as the 3" dragged on the floor alot)
Greddy Trust filter
Z32 AFM
H-dev 3a Ecu
ACT HD organic clutch
Short shifter

Off with the old
Image
Image

The car should be running 350+ so went to see if i could get the LPG tunned. 350bhp with diesel economy :chill:
The LPG system couldn't cope so was no redundant, so had a power run while there. Bloody car couldn't run more than 1.4bar, instead parked at 1.2 and tailed off to 1bar. On the second run (in 5th) hit the limiter at 165 and boom! Tyre came off its bead :doh:

Image
Image

Still managed to run 13.6 1/4 mile @ 109mph at a disappointed 309bhp. A leak test was conducted using a tin of tomatoes and a can of lynx.

Image
Image

Turned out i had two large holes form my last off 4 months ago

Image
Image

Got it welded up and enjoyed 1.4bar, fooking quick.

Post subject:  Re: JDM YO!

Winter came around so the Equip's were off for a refurb and the stock wheels back on. They look lost in the flared arches

Image
Image
Image

stock 205 vs stretched 245 on an 11"

Image

Got fed up of constantly polishing the lips on the Equips, went for the murdered out look. Pain in the arse as each alloy has 50 rim bolts

Image

Etched

Image

Painted

Image

Then the tedious job of refitting 200 bolts and torquing them up

Image
Image

Next on the agenda was some new track wheels, alignment and a trip to the ring.

Running -3deg camber on the front and -2deg at the rear
Image

Bought a set of 350z alloys as they are cheap but strong. Didn't want to chance peeling a tyre off on one of the curbs at the ring. Fitted toyo r888, ultimate tyre for the ultimate track.

Incase no one been to the ring, let me tell you, that place is fooking unreal. The track is nothing like forza/gt5 but its not intimidating, the who atmosphere is awesome. The who place has a buzz, from the camping site to the museum which is a must.

Coming out of the karussel

Digging in hard at the bus stop

It was a fantastic long weekend and the roads around are the best i've ever been on. The road between the ring and Adaneu (sp?) is a must if your ever over there. We hired bikes and mountain biked around the track, what a nightmare. One of the lads came off in front of me on a very fast down hill. Had to call an ambulance, which stopped the ring testing day for a while. All was ok.

Image
Image
Image

We watched a race and saw some testing; veyron super sport, BMW M5, Astra GTC (VRX), M3 CSL

Image

A few of the exotica after the race waiting to get on track

Image

This just looked like an ordinary GT3 RS, check out the single hub nut

I've got major love for 911's, will probably get one in the near future.

Two weeks after coming back form the ring i was getting pretty bored and looking at evos again. 400bhp in an evo is insane off the mark but didn't have the legs of the Datsun so in a bid to keep the enthusiasm i did a colour change. Was a spur of the moment thing, we were quiet at work and my boss was on holiday.

Removed and flushed the ariel, smoothed and flushed the bonnet badge.

Image
Image

Image

Next up was a full strip out, LPG and interior in preparation for my Donington track day.

More tomorrow

Great post mate, the Ring looks awesome. How did your brakes cope with it, were they pushed hard going round?

I had pad glaze, couldn't of boiled my fluid as its 5.1. For the first mile or two, your really hard on your brakes then you hardly need them for the next few. Gives them a chance to cool down abit. Forgotten about my brake upgrade, possibly one of my favourite bits on the car.

With the brakes being shit, loving the ring, the intention to do track days, some new brakes were needed. Ideally i wanted AP's but they didn't do a bolt on kit, so k sports it was. I wanted the biggest i could fit under the wheels, love looking at car with big brakes, it gives me the horn.

Front - 356mm 8 pot with DS2500 pads

Rear - 356mm 6 pots with ds2500 pads with skyline rear drum setup for hand brake.

Brakes are awesome, only have to touch the middle pedal. Can easily lock the wheels at 140mph, down the Donington straight.

Lovely pics of the ring, I'd love to go one day.
