  1. A quick video about the car (yay more moving pictures)
  2. Just a quick 8 min vid a friend of mine put together about my car and it's journey to completion:
  3. hahaha, no problem! Sorry to have let this die sort of! The car is in storage now for a few months while I get sort of stupid. I'm currently building a tow rig. It's a 1995 regular cab Silverado dually. The plan is a stock floor body drop, bagged on 22" transport truck wheels, and painted black by spring. We'll see how that pans out, as I'm also getting my feet wet in rallycross with a few friends and will be doing the build and maintenance on the car we've bought. The most exciting news is that the car got a write up on motoiq!!!!!!!!! I'm so pumped and humbled by that. http://www.moto
  4. Some moving pictures for the complainers, lol
  5. Mooner took some pics of the car before we loaded it up on Friday....right before the diff exploded.
  6. Indeed I do SO, we took the car out to to TMP for a shakedown run on sunday, and I couldn't be happier. The car did nine sessions, and only encountered a couple small issues, with no mechanical failures. IT just wanted more. It definitely requires ALOT of work still to make it work well. Because of how poorly it was handling under braking, cornering, and accel we only times one session, and the fastest lap from that session was a 1:26.3 At any rate, my parents surprised me at the track, and I took both my mom and dad out for a few laps. It was pretty surreal to be bombing around tmp in
  7. So, some things have happened since I last updated this. I drove the car the other night, and to my delight, found very few issues that need addressing (besides working on my driving...). I'll just go through and let the pictures and captions do the talking. Oscar primed the car: I then finished up the underside, including the exhaust: Next, I finished up the heat shield, made a coil pack cover, and finished up some odds and ends in the engine bay: H at Spec-Auto sourced a second set of wheels for me on short notice: Fi
  8. This car hasn't been forgotten about! It went away for some things and came back a running, turning, stopping, moving car...on the back of our resident bad-ass car-hauler of course: It's also no longer yellow: And way more complete: I will update accordingly with the full story and way more pics when I have time
  9. Small update: So We had the engine in and out, and in and out, and it's looking like the tranny tunnel needs to be remade to accommodate the S2000 six speed. So I did a little cutting, and bam, it fits. I'm hoping to build the new tunnel tonight. Some other less significant things happened: The walbro found its way into the tank: I made my lexan rear quarter windows: and my dash face finally showed up from laser cutting: The body work is coming along as well, but who wants to look at pictures of sanding.
  10. Hahaha, If that's the only thing wrong with the build, then I accept that! I'll try to be more careful in the future though. The isolator is a piece of a roller from a boat trailer. I finally got around to replacing the sheet metal screws that were holding the brake lines on with nut-serts Next up, was something else rather exciting. I buttoned up the engine mounts, put the cross member in, and then stuck the motor in. Turns out I can measure, and stick metal together. Crank was dead nuts centered, and the motor was straight and exactly where I wanted it. I was pre
  11. Lets see if I can make sense of what I have done over the past few weeks. Unfortunately life happened over the break and I didn't get to spend nearly as much time on the car, however I now have more room to sleep, and less time I'm required to be at home. I had the engine in and out a few times. I have been looking at other swaps, and I don't really see any I'm in love with. i don't really like how alot of them solved some of the problems. So, I took some time to think and come up with some solutions. On the top of my list was not hacking up the firewall and transmission tunnel. Secondly
  12. So, as a result of the engine change, I'm going to have to build a custom cross member, and the first step of that is to cut apart the old one. So within hours of my last exam, I had the cross member cut apart and ready to have the ends plated, go back in the car, and get squared up to start building the new member. I didn't snap any pictures, but I did get the plates on the ends of the cross member ends. I also removed the engine mounts. The motor will be sitting further back, and at a different angle, so my plan is to use the stock s2000 mounts and build a lower part onto
  13. I was honestly in the same boat. I couldn't get over the fact the motor wasn't Nissan built. But after a lot of research, it was hard not to go with it. I got the steel bent for the cross member, so ideally that will start to take shape this weekend. It's going to be very tight with the bell housing clearance. I know I'll have cut the tranny tunnel to accommodate the shift rod, but I'm hoping to avoid making any major cuts in the engine bay. At any rate, I was thinking of making a jig for the cross members if anyone needs one in the future, and my wiring guy has everything laid out f
  14. Haha, thanks man. the car WILL NOT be staying yellow. I'm pretty set on gloss black.
  15. 240BHP stock actually. Reasonably easy to get near that in torque with carefully chosen parts and a good tune too.
