    After 3 or so months on the road, I have decided (after being politely reminded by Crumz that I didn't yet have a build thread) that I needed a build thread for my new Silvia.

     

    After a drunken discussion with a friend of mine, about how he no longer had the motivation to work on his car, I ended up with what I drive around today P1020985.jpg

     

    P1020987.jpg

    An unregistered, but running, SR20DET converted to manual. It had it's problems, but with a little work, and much cursing of the previous owner, I finally got the car over the pits, and registered.

     

    Soon after buying the car, and before it was even registered, I had parts building up.

     

    Powered by Max highmount intercooler kit

    IMG_0281.jpg

     

    Powered by Max Cobra downpipe

    IMG_0282.jpg

     

    A full set of adjustable arms, including tie rods and adjustable rod ends, but not including lower control arms.

    Second hand Nismo 2way LSD

    And most of the surviving parts from the Panda

     

    There are a few things I am not happy with. These include but are not limited too:

    The clutch pedal used in the conversion, which is not a S13 clutch pedal

    The cheap cooling pro(?) front mount intercooler kit

    Stock springs and struts fitted for the pits

    S14 radiator and unknown thermo fans

    Leaking thermo switch and associated dodgy wiring

     

    Soon to be fitted items include:

    Exedy Racing Sports Ceramic clutch

    S15 T28BB turbo

    The highmount cooler and matching intake

    Today I changed the clutch out on the car.
    And because everyone loves a build thread with photos, I took a few.

    New Clutch. Exedy Racing Sports Ceramic
    Posted Image
    Posted Image

    Stock flywheel, ground by BrakesWest
    Posted Image

    New clutch thrust bearing, spigot bearing and clutch dowels
    Posted Image
    Posted Image

    And because I had the shifter out, I installed my GKtech bronze shifter bush
    Posted Image

    Many thanks to Luketh for giving me a helping hand and Crumz for lending me his clutch alignment tool.

    It is very bitey/grabby.
    And because of the high load pressure plate, the clutch pedal is fairly heavy.
    But I love it.

    The boost controller came from Tengoku, along with the clutch.
    I'd contact Jeremy for a price, but it was cheaper than all of the local prices I saw.
