I've had the car for a while now so I thought I'd start one of these project threads.

Most people have seen the car but I'll give you the full run down just in case.

Midnight Blue 1997 S14a 200sx.

The previous owner did the following mods:

HKS Front Mount Intercooler
S15 Turbo
CES Twin Dump Pipe
Custom 3 inch Exhaust
Apexi AVC-R boost controller
HKS Turbo Timer
K&N Pod Filter

Since buying the car I have fitted:

Walbro fuel pump
APEXi EL System Meter 2 boost gauge
Graham's S15 rims
Pineapple rings
Stereo gear I had in the Pulsar.
Personalised Plates
New floor mats :P

I also pulled off the rear spoiler and covered over the holes with some rubber grommets until I get around to getting them filled and painted properly.

At this stage I'm happy with the amount of power the car has and want to concentrate on suspension modifications first. As yet I haven't decide what order I want to do things in - but the ricer in me wants to get springs first to get rid of the 4WD ride height, where-as sway bars and alignment bits would probably give me the biggest performance increase. Either way, I'll need to save a little more first :)

There are a few pics (now outdated) here:

And this is one I took with my phone on saturday after putting the S15 wheels on:

Not with the AVC-R setup properly. Will have to run it again after messing around with it a bit more.

(I made 168 kw at the wheels but the boost was all over the place)

No missing paint... but there are marks in it from the rubber seal. I tried polishing the marks out but I don't have a polish that cuts deep enough.

i think it eventually got to around 12 psi.. but it was really all over the place..

John helped me set it up a little better since then, it still spikes a little bit but after that it holds pretty well.
