    Hi all, figured I should come out of the shadows and post a bit about my S14 Zenki.

    I picked this up 6 months ago after searching for about 3 years for a nice S1x. Eventually settled for a 2000 N15 SSS in the meantime, which was actually an awesome little daily and I really want another one haha. But after 4 months of owning the SSS, I couldn't resist the turbo any more, and picked up the stockest S14 I'd ever seen. I picked it up for just over $5k, with 116xxxk's on the clock and I'm the third owner from new. It's a 95 sr20det auto, and was completely stock bar a 3" mild turbo-back exhaust. The auto is soooo boring, but makes a good daily, which is it's primary purpose, either way it's being ripped out soon in favour of a manual box. Anyway, pics are needed:

    ^still probably my favourite photo I've taken of the car.

    I couldn't really wrap my head around how stock it was when I got it haha, I mean it still has the factory Nissan tape deck radio and even the factory 200sx floor mats are still in good condition. Definitely wasn't going to let this one get away :P

     

    So in the couple of months after I bought it, I was just driving it around everywhere, taking spottos with all the other nice cars I saw

    39623181334_02083b8a1e_b.jpg

    39623182384_6b87f09435_b.jpg

    40289244342_d1e479c873_b.jpg

    This was fun, but I didn't really do anything on the car except service it. All other work was just small stuff, like getting rid of the fade on the indicators, polishing out scratches on the tail lights, re-blacking the mud guards and front lip etc

    All was good, until... I rocked up to work one day, it decided to split the top radiator hose, which wasn't an issue as we had one in stock. Fitted that and all was good again... until a few days later, when the water pump started leaking.

    So I needed to sort this out pretty quickly too being a daily. Ordered one from work only to find out it was the wrong one when it arrived a week late, which was awesome... My cousin was able to supply one so I took the car around and fitted it

    39623183674_63d02598af_b.jpg

    ^Some may recognise the car, Trav's RB20 S13, also known as pimpin_calais89

    Stock fuel pump also died shortly after water pump was replaced, promptly replaced with a Walbro 255

    So far, thats the worst of the problems I've had with the car (touch wood) which I think is pretty good for a 20 year old car.

     

    Got sick of stockies, picked up these for a good price

    ^Still technically stockies, but soooo much better than stock S14 wheels. 

     

    Picked up a Zenki Silvia boot badge, matches the wheels pretty good too haha

    Does this mean we're gonna see the old girl out and bout in the new year  :P ?

     

    Completed the family at uni one day :)

    40289247042_79fc6ba846_b.jpg

     

    Intercooler was purchased off Dalspec and was installed a short time after.

    39436960595_054be75ae8_b.jpg

     

    Just did a quick job of cleaning up the core and piping.

    40334330531_de4dd92102_b.jpg

    40334368341_5768df2fbc_b.jpg

     

     

    Installing it, with the help of a mate

    40334369991_80a91ca71f_b.jpg

    40334368831_d9d9b09d56_b.jpg

    40334369521_6e17937806_b.jpg

    40334366421_7d96e5bd78_b.jpg

     

    All back together and driving, the install itself was a bit unnerving. It was the most i'd done to a car before, so the idea of trimming body parts and trying to make it all fit was a bit daunting, but went fairly smoothly over 2 days. Thanks to my neighbour for lending me a holesaw that wasn't complete rubbish and Trav again for making sure I didn't screw anything up too badly hahaha

    39623376024_c427dd9cc5_b.jpg

     

    Threw in a catch can, this was just something I wanted to do, I realise theres not much benefit as this isn't a drift/track car, but figured I may as well.

     

    Picked up this from Goodie, Hardrace front swaybar. Suspension is also something I really want to play around with, even though my mechanical confidence is still not great, although I found installing the sway bar pretty easy which was nice. It's improved the body roll a fair bit over stock, I wasn't really sure how much difference it was actually going to make, but it does feel tighter in the front now. I'm looking forward to tackling the rest of the suspension, going by the state of my tie rod ends, theres a lot of work and improvement to be done.

    39436996745_d69a7a329e_b.jpg

     

    Did this too, also removed factory bypass valve, cos I'm immature and fluttery noises make me happy :D

    39623376734_3efefa1092_b.jpg

     

    I needed to make some progress on the drivetrain, so had the flywheel machined and sourced a new stock shifter from Taarks, new wave spring washer, circlip and snap ring (absolute pain to get back in) for the shifter from Nissan, a solid shifter bushing and upgraded shifter return springs from GKTech. Got the shifter back together and back in the box, can now select gears and it's got me all excited again. Downside is i still don't have a clutch, and recent spending and lack of time means I'm probably only going to be able to do this early Feb, or maybe really early Jan if I can find time.

    Thanks, well I think it made a difference  :P whether thats just me I don't know haha but I like how it feels now compared to when I bought the car. 

    I hope it stays clean too, I'll try my best  ;)

    This is pretty much where it's at for now, I just went down to Nissan a couple of days ago and ordered a new rear window trim, as the old one was split and faded.

    Hmm that trim looks amazing.

    Is it OK to ask what the ballpark figure was for it...I might have to look at replacing all of.mine on my 180 in the near future.

    Just that one turned out to be around $95, the guy from Nissan seemed to think that was a lot cheaper than normal though.

    I'd say $95 is damn good from a dealer.
    Was expecting around the $150 mark
