    Update. Cant believe its been a year since ive looked at this. Wheels and tires : 15x7 konig rewinds 0 offset front and rear 195/45r15 federal 595's, super cheap on tireseasy.com Im living in malaysia for work right now so naturally ive been looking for jdm parts. I just bought a front bumper with light. On the lookout for reae bumper and maybe an airdamn or flares or fender mirrors.

    Also, im starting to think at wheels and tires. im thinking 195/50 r15's in the front with +4 offset. I have 280zx struts so I think those will fit. And im curious if 205/50 r15's with +12 offset will fit in the back? I have the H165 rear axle so the rear track was increased like 12mm total I think.

    yeah i fixed the brakes. The rod connected to the pedal was adjusted correctly, but the rod between the booster and master cylinder was too long. i added a shim and fixed it. brakes feel great. There is a clunky rattely noise coming from the drivers side front though. Think it might be the ball joint. hopefully that is a quick fix. Also the steering is feeling pretty loose. i replaced tie rods, idler arm, and centerlink. i also adjust the steering box. I guess its probably just worn out.

    I had a new 13/16ths master but i couldn't get any pedal pressure so i bought a 15/16ths (280zx), also the rear calipers were on the wrong side. but after fixing that the pedal feels great, its stiff but awesome braking power, and it doesn't pull to one side, they just never release all the way. I adjusted the pedal so it has 1/16 - 1/8th of play before engaging the rod but that didn't fix it. I'm running a 280zx master new stock booster 280zx front brakes 200sx rear brakes the only thing i reused was the stock distribution block/ proportioning valve Could that be the problem?

    So im having a problem with the brakes. All four brakes are sticking. All components are new on all four corners and the master cylinder and booster. ive adjusted the brake pedal so the master cylinder returns all the way. i cant figure it out. while im driving the brakes feel great, there is always some resistance though. they never completely release.

    Optima yellow top in the trunk for fuel im running a small piston pump to pull from the tank to the surge tank, and then a walbro 255 from the surge tank to the fuel rail. The surgetank plus braided line and fittings all came in a kit on ebay for $100 simple radiator brackets

    so i got these a couple months ago from a guy in vancouver with a beautiful 510. only $200 for both. this happened, 280zx brakes are awesome. Ground kontrol decided that i should have 340lb springs though. They are really stiff. probably helping with the lack of front sway bar though. A bunch of shitty pics of the exhaust, the light in my dads shop wasn't helping. this is the ISIS trans mount (really stupid design) definitely stiffens things up and no longer isolates vibrations. crossmember probably needs some gussets. did that under the car pre-lift. My dad got a lift a few weeks ago. Makes everything so easy : ) My dog loves to lay in the sparcos, little mud prints all over I will take more pictures tonight. Ill give some info on the fuel system for anyone interested. I also got an OBD2 plug wired in and am using a code reader as a dash right now. Plan on running a 8" tablet over bluetooth running the torque app. more updates on the way. Hopefully some donut videos as well.

    I'm sure a lot of people wrote this build off long ago considering i started the swap a year and a half ago. It's funny how quickly these projects get sidelined. When i actually look at how much time i worked on the car. The vast majority of the swap was done in the last three weeks after work lol.

    Got it. I was confused because i didn't realize that the s14 was obd1 in 1995. I'd like to add an obd2 plug, but i've been struggling to get info. Is far is a could tell i only need 3 wires? power ground and the data wire But which wire, and which pins on the obd2 plug has been difficult to find.

    Also i've seen some debate as to whether the iacv tube and vacuum line under the throttle body really need to be plugged in to the intake tube. I guess if they aren't, it will be unmetered, unfiltered air, but wasn't sure if it would have much affect on how it runs?

    Hopefully I can button up all the loose ends on Saturday and take it out for the first drive. I was hoping to check the codes on the ecu, but it doesnt appear to have an LED like the other s14's ive seen. its from a 1998.

    It was idling around 1700 rpm. hopefully it will come down a little after it warms up. It was running great though. The mic on my phone didn't like how loud it was. oh and i just realized that was without the intake and MAF.

    so i finished up all of the odds and ends today. Got it to turn over, All of my wiring is correct, its getting fuel and spark. it popped a few times, not running yet though. probably going to replace the plugs and cap and rotor and give it another shot tomorrow. hopefully it fires up. driveshaft will be done on thursday, then i just need to finish mounting the surge tank, finish bleeding the brakes and it will be ready for the maiden voyage!
