Not necessarily,

there is an old bloke down the coast that enters burnout comps in a Stanza SSS, painted up in the Nissan colours.

He is about 50 and has been doing it for ages, and is fuckin good. Car in N/A and hauls an awesome skid in second...I have it on video might try and download it...

I was impressed to say the least!!!
Bobjones is back biatches...!!!

With the right mods a Stanza can go hard . . . . . . . a mate of mine had one which pulled away from a V8 Ford Bronco at 200km/hr. Not sure what mods were done to it.

broncos are a heavy 4wd, doubt they even do 200km/h so anything that does 200 would be quicker.

well went to super cheap on tuesday morning to only find, water coming out of the back of the motor.

so out came G/box, clutch, flywheel, to have a look to see what was going on.
Found the the welsh plug on the back of the head had shit its self.
So went to see mate in parts shop.
-Welsh plug $1
-Heavy duty clutch$250
-VRS kit $10

came home took the head off to also find a crack in the block which gos across from one water jacket through a head bolt hole and into another water jacket. :(

so now on the hunt for a new L20B block........... anyone know of one :?

done a bit more panel beating and more under coat.
panited a bit of the engine bay with a gloss black "epoxy enamel rust protection paint" which is very very close match to the exteriour.
sprayed a lot of brackets and other mis. bits in orange. other colour used it going to be a blue and mabey a white or purple.

will be weilding up crack and seams in the arvo after work

Edit:- will try to get some pics up soon
