View Full Version : My S14 Breakdown Pics for new build up

03-10-2005, 07:33 AM
haha.. 007 car as in terms of ME..

Ok.. Bought the car in December harmless enough.. 700 Dollar Wine Red S14 Zenki Qs Manual. Pretty cheap and clean body except for a small scratch on the drivers side rear Quarter.

Went to pick up the car.. with a Wrecker of course. . . No gas, Battery Dead.. and then finally get this thing running but I could care a ****in less. caues the fuker is a NA BEAST.. lol.. talked about HARD to get started.. but once started had to floor it just to get the car moving.. haha.. looks like FUN.

Shoot to last week and need to get the car inspected BEFORE the changes occur.. well.. compression test put cyl 1 and 3 at almost ZERO .. hahahahaa.. so now gotta do some creative thinking. .

Now, Feb 28 decided to pull the engine and take out all the ****.. relocate the batter and the fuse box to INSIDE the car.. all AC stuff is comming out and broke down to get painted Black in the bay area.

SO, stop my babbleing and pics

get to my friends shop Nice and early.. had to wake up at 7:30am and drive 2 hours and 30bucks in tolls just to get there.. 7:30 EARLY?? :?
thats right ****ers.. on my day off i get up earlier than my work days.. work day i get up about 11:00

Cause we are some Lazy asses and didnt want to PUSH this ****er like 20 feet to the garage.. fired that ****er up and drove it.. haha
GOD i hate that color

working by myself just pulling out some **** .. Gonna grap that Q SR20DE throttle body and slap it on my new engine.. is a little bigger than stock DET

Gotta thank Linds for his FMIC location.. looks like I will have the same idea going on mine.. extra protection for my *aggressive* type driving.. haha

Slowly the parts accumilate on the ground.. haha

Got tired and said.. **** take off the damn bonnet buddy.. so you can stand while you work.

Finally, Had some space where the lift was and moved the car iin

Once everything was ready to get pulled.. Everyone comes to support the pull.. Have to thank Furukawa and Mike with some help get some Misc parts off. Also a BIG thanks for the SANDWHICH !!

Dont eat super spicy Tacos before you pull the engine.. really Burns your *Censored**Censored**Censored*!! :screwy:

Furukawa looking to see where its cought.. Me pointing OVER THERE YOU ****ING BLIND JAP.. haha

AAAHHH comming out nicely now

Me yelling *get that piece of **** out of here*

Mike having a ZEN moment !!

GOD.. can i really put this back together??

Well, Gotta say the bay is pretty clean... but more stuff is on its way out..

And it goes without fail.. GOTTA HAVE THE IN THE BAY PIC.. trying to kill all the bugs in the bay!!

Well, thats it for issue ONE of the Making of the 007 Car.. haha Only had one day to work on this so.. my next couple days off will be back down there for more action!!

03-10-2005, 07:33 AM
Well.. Got some updates from this weekend working on my car!
Pretty tired.. after a late night game of Grand theft auto.. and getting up early to work on the project. .. To start off

The Engine Bay harness was taken apart and it all fit through the hole into the interior of the car

As you can see here its all going through there.. Working on exactly where I will send the wires back through.. Gonna keep the fuses in the dash area and just extend the starter and lights ect..

Damn that was not as bad as I thought but not all that fun either!! haha

In order to get all the stuff out of the engine bay i had to pull the dash and take the heater and aircon out.

Here you can see the unit out.. THIS SUXS!!! hahaha

After moving all the little caps and hard lines.. I am finally done.. haha damn I hope i can put this back together.. haha A couple of the hard lines I just unbolted and moved to the side.. No need to take them all the way out

Taping all the **** up so I can wash the bay.. oil is a BIATCH to clean.. haha


Ok.. I was looking for a pretty good engine.. and I took too long to call back my friend so he could BUY the one I wanted... SOOOO.. my other friend at the shop has this 2.2L engine that was JUST overhauled and I broke down and bought the engine as is.. No turbine / harness/ computer.. I dont need them anyway.. but the engine was 130,000 yen. DAMN.. going to get the engine looked at this week.. and putting in my Tomei Cams, Tomei HG, and Tomei RAS.. haha.

rou ou ou rou oh ou ou .. POWER TOOLS!! IM TIM ALLEN.. GRRRR

**** YEA!! cant go with out some problems.. the 2 bolts holding the lower part of the front fender were mad stripped and tried torching them and all.. NO DICE.. TIME TO CUT!! yea looks at those sparks.. yea yea yea

Well,.. I took 30min to sand down.. PART of ONE strut tower bar.. and I said **** THIS.. this is going to the bankinya.. paint shop.. This week.. the shop will drill out a hole in the core support so I can fit the Kouki lights and will get painted black.. They are pretty busy so may take 2 weeks.. engine will get worked on.

After that gotta put it back together to get shaken.. then take the interior back out for the rest of the prep. ALOT of work

03-10-2005, 12:18 PM
oh u lucky bastard

how much did u get it for?

03-10-2005, 12:37 PM
you lucky monkey...700 for a s14...nice post ups....keep us updated

03-10-2005, 01:05 PM
wow i guess it would help if i

03-12-2005, 03:03 AM
that is awsome! I like how you are throwing everything inside the car! keeping the engine bay clean is key. I couldnt figure out where I wanted the fuse box. I was going to put mine in side as well. but I just located it under drivers side corner like where the battery would be. and made a aluminum box so no water can touch it.

But let me know how you put the wiring inside. very interested in doing this

keep up the killer work

03-12-2005, 11:48 PM

03-14-2005, 09:48 AM
Ok.. once again.. went to kumamoto on my weekend to do my part time job.. haha

Off my car goes to the paint shop.. I really should say a TENT in the middle of a field!! haha.. but they do good work..
I should have JUST the engine bay painted and finished by this saturday!
they are in the middle of putting a RB26 into a 1980s president.. haha

Took the Dash out of my BLACK car so i could get at the engine harness easier!

Cant forget to pull out my IMPUL gauges to go in the new car

Engine harness almost out!


Dont forget the 3 core Rad and my Toyota HIDs


Put on lift

Remove TOP nut for refilling and air for fast and easy drian of OLD oil

Pictured here with plug removed

Then remove the bottom for draining.. Look how CLEAN that oil is :shake:

Note the difference in the plugs The one on the left is the TOP plug
The one on the Right is the bottom plug fixed with a Magnet ...
Why? well.. if your dif is *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored*ing up or going bad ONE indication would be shards of metal stuck to this magnet.. mine.. very fine sluge at most :thumbup:

Unbolt the propeller shaft WITH side brake engaged

at the same time unbolt the drive shafts from the output shafts
Note: to reach all the bolts you will have to release the brake and turn one of the wheel to rotate the shaft.

If you notice here the sway bar wil get in the way of the dif dropping down.. you DONT need to remove it.. I unbolted the bolts to the sway bar on the body of the car only.. NOT the LCA.. and it droped enough

all the propeller shaft bolts and drive shaft.. keep these in a safe place

unplug this sucker and unbolt the nut .. *NOTE* this bolt is double nutted.. hahaha.. double nutted.. hahaahaha anyway

OMG I cant get it out.. WHAT WILL I DO!!!

Drop the 2 back member bolts WITH a mission/dif stand holding the dif up

YES.. much better

unbolt the 2 front bolts holding the DIF on .. BOOM DONE

Had to pull out my engine and mission from the black car also

wow... look at that sexy clutch.. ORC URAS 409D special.. haha SINGLE plate. using the clutch and mission from the Ks Silvia!!

Well.. that was yet another busy weekend.. next week only have ONE day off but will start putting *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored* BACK into the new car... YEPPIE!!

03-14-2005, 10:10 AM

03-14-2005, 09:48 PM

The rims on the s14 are almost more ghetto than the rims on that tow truck. :D

03-15-2005, 06:00 AM
Nice car, I seen the same pics on another froum, where you posted them. I also I've seen some videos of you drifting..very very good, at Sekai Hills.

03-15-2005, 10:03 AM
this is a great thread

03-15-2005, 10:24 AM
my friend is in Okinawa:cool: ......i wonder if the IMPUL gauges would be cheaper than the NISMO ones.....iirc RBMotoring wanted something like $340 for the NISMO speedo


03-15-2005, 04:15 PM
Welcome! :D Hey whats wrong with your black S14?? :confused:


I see alot of drifter's S14s with R33 wheels on them. Why is that, is it a drifting trend???

03-15-2005, 05:43 PM
anything from a skyline is considered badass by 240 owners usually.

btw, stickz please put in your profile that you are the master of pictures. :D

Yea, I collect pictures...Well I have a big collection of drift,VIP,Zoku, and other JDM car pics.

03-15-2005, 06:41 PM
the big reason why most people run the GT-R wheels are because they come in very good size 17x9+30 / strong forged and usually cheaper than buying other new wheels.

03-15-2005, 06:45 PM
O, Thanks.. :cool:

03-15-2005, 06:52 PM
What I wouldn't do to move overseas for a few years...

1. Find job
2. Find cheapest apartment availible
3. Get garage to work in
4. Buy an FR that runs
5. Begin to have fun on the "glass smooth" roads there!

03-28-2005, 07:52 PM
FINALLY got my engine bay back with it painted.. we had to wait until after lunch to pick it up because they forgot to remove the battery tray and what not so they did that during the week.. Daniel came along and was a good help.. was little quiet but Helped out alot. Mike strolled in around 3 and was a good help also.. it was invasion of the white men at the Japanese shop.. LOL

well... on with the show

As you can see we had FINE working weather and conditions.. rained for pretty much the entire day.

Had to remove the 5 bolts from my old black car
I went ahead and took the tie rods tension rods and tension bar as well

what a nice looking pair.. with 25mm spacers ON them.. pulled my coils pretty dirty.. cant put them on my new car yet cause I have to get car inspection and using the stockies area so much better

Now for the money shots!! Got my engine bay back



In the rain we got the Hardlines, brake, clutch MC and wiper motor

Mike brushing his teeth with a NASTY toothbrush that he used to clean the Powersteering hard lines up with.. LOL

mmmm.. new nismo motor mounts ..

got the motor mounts on the engine and ready to roll
OH. found out that my engine is actually a 2.0 when the put in the cams, Headgasket, and RAS. Its been overhauled so I dont really care if its 2.0

Dropping that *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored* in YO
Look its team ORANGE!!

There it is !! haha.. well.. engine mount was little off so we had to do some work to get it to sit in right. but its all good now

Took the clutch off my old car.. the Single plate uras ORC 409D.. haha
some heat is showing up on this..

on all the power steering hoses I went ahead and changed the bands to a much better one.. the stock ones suck *Censored**Censored**Censored*

IF for some reason some one does know.. haha.. got more pics

Well.. with the 5bolts off my old car... need to take the shitters off my new one

holy cow this stuff has NEVER been touched.. the cotter pins were stuck in like glue. haha .. im taking it off at the LCA/Knuckle and englink/Knuckle..
I would have taken the LCA to make it easier but I think mine are slightly bent on the old car

Here is me with a BFH hitting the knucled to get the ball joints out.. with a little man power out they come

Some good old hammer marks with the nut on the bolt for some protection


Heres what the cotter pin looked like after.. lol. new ones on tap

03-28-2005, 07:52 PM

A little TOP picture .. finally in the covered area the next day

Handing the flywheel portion of my Clutch

Got the rest on and bam.. good as .. a single plate clutch

Getting the trans on the engine proved to be a challenge.. had 4 people working this *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored* out.. then finally went on

working on tightening up the bolts.. still need to Bolt the starter in.. but just getting it snug

yea baby .. new mission mount to boot

Goodbye see you next week.. or week after when i have 4 days off..
got pretty much what I wanted to get done.. I would have liked to get the drive shaft put on and all the bots torqued down.. but all is well.. Had a couple scratches in the paint on the back of the engine bay.. but the heater hoses will hide that


03-28-2005, 09:26 PM
Dude, I've said it before but this thread rocks. This is better than buildups featured in magazines. Keep on posting man! :cool:

04-11-2005, 06:05 PM
well.. went down to the shop again.. didnt really take many pics.. not much to really take pics of.. just putting some *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored* back together.. before car inspection.. you will notice is NA but on a DET engine.. this was little challenging at first but figure we got it worked out. Also have a spark issue.. have it but its weak.. so thinking it maybe a ground issue with the new paint.. but not really sure.. swapped in new plugs / coils / plug wires / computer ect.. not much left to check.. anway a few pics

well since i had the DE engine.. thought I'd use the throttle body
asked for a new gasket and was handed a new one in 15 min. PIMP

with most of the things back in..

Well.. had to tighten up all the trans bolts/ starter/ propell shaft / mani and exhaust.. but why the hell would i take boring pics of that when i got a boring pic of it on the ground.. haha

Yep here it is with rad and crap in

had a little fixin to do.. just made a few wires longer
shitty pic of my soldering job.. haha

ahh the joys of having another harness right there for ya..
as you can see the one on my DET was actually melted and broke off.. SOO.. I added cut off the connector from the other harness

as you see here its extended a bit out of the way of the turbine to come :)
its wrapped in heat cloth with the ties.. haha

well.. some of the random crap to deal with were the water lines.. that was not so much of a problem.. had 2 extra plugs off another engine to plug the 2 in the block .. NOW.. there is a OIL hole that needed to be plugged or oil would be spilt all over *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored*.. went to nissan.. NOPE. went to a DIY ie hardware store.. NOPE.. no screw with same pitch as the oil one.. SOOOO we rigged up this little number.. took off the old turbine from my blown engine and cut the oil line off.. then hammered it down and took some plyers to bend it back carefully as NOT to crack it.. presto.. a fix for a temporary problem.

Last but not least my girl showing us how to be a woman

all in all got almost all of it done. just a few things inside the car and the lights body and fuse box to lock down.. OH i did reroute the wires with a little cutting to the hole near the firewall will post up pics when i get some later.. I decided driving was more important than making my car look super dooper nice.. well.. and got lazy.. This is only stage ONE of THREE

just some other parts in the house
BLACK GT-R intercooler.. and NO I didnt paint this.. this is how it comes.

Apex-i 740cc injectors

Because of time I want to drive as soon as possible I NIXED the fusebox in the cabin.. so i cut this hole to get all the wires thru here

Having to make a new stay for the fuse box because the wires comming a different route

you can see here how its been rotated

aaahhh.. back together and running.. relay was not getting power.. and getting car inspection this week.. after that those goodies I posted are going in!!

04-23-2005, 05:48 AM
awesome job

04-23-2005, 10:05 AM
I'm curious as to how you gained all this knowledge. Trial and error and smart friends? I'm extremeley jealous by the way. :mad: Are you stationed in Japan for the military or something? Damn I hate you...I got a hot asian girlfriend too, but my S13 is slow and boro. LOL. Thanks, for contributing your buildup. Simply awesome! :D

04-23-2005, 02:16 PM
what part of Japan are u in?

<a href="http://www.kottonmouthkings.com"><img border="0" src="http://www.suburbannoizerecords.com/streetteam/300x250/KMK_300x250.jpg"></a>

04-24-2005, 11:36 PM
haha.. I live on Island of Kyushu.. SOUTH island and I teach english.. NOT MILITARY

Have to take the comparison pics.. haha.. old turbo with new turbo

Here you can see the S15 Exhaust mani gasket... like 5 layers.. I actually stayed with the one provided by Enjuku in their kit.

The exhaust mani wasters needed to be but down some to fit.. but nothing a grinder cant fix

Oh yea.. decided to add some more air for the top end..

looking NICE on top there.. gotta bend the dipstick out of the way.. hehe

intake mani is off.. exposing innards

Fuel rail shot.. becareful when taking the rail off there are some black holders under rail to keep it up.

Fuel rail is out.. and dirty.. gotta clean it a bit before the 740s go in

well.. got it cleaned up.. put the stock injector in AFTER I cleaned it.. just to show how to get out those pesky stuck injectors

Not included on most injectors are the O-rings.. from RIGHT to LEFT.. the right one goes on bottom in inj and middle goes close to top of injector.. get some parts cleaner or something to lube up the rings to slide on easy.. last goes on the rail .. well. DUH. easy enough to figure out. hehe

Bam Injectors in Note when you take off the injector Stay.. on inside there is a small grommet kind of thing.. dont loose that.. right on!

Had small problem getting the stock fuel pres reg off the rail but nothing some heat and plyers cant fix.. gotta get 2 new screws for it now.. but here is a comparison pic tomei kit vs. stock

04-24-2005, 11:36 PM
REAR MEMBER REMOVAL 1.01 blind monkey could do this..

On a Silvia S14 Qs vs Ks dif and member.. on the dif there are 2 bolts that go through the member. these are different spacings. FYI

well.. i already took the dif out.. so that left the propellar shaff. hanging and that allowed me to get to the E-brake wires.. unhook both of those

Take the brake line off.. either at the calipar or the fitting on the body.

Take the lower part of the shock off

take the 3 bolts off here.. in front of the rear tire

and here the big bolt in the center.. sorry for not flipping

Had a bad Boot on the drive shaft.. so took on off my Qs for the Ks


This one came off my old car.. as you can see it is pretty dirty and has some adjustable arms!!

04-25-2005, 09:32 AM
What are the specs on the subframe going in?

04-25-2005, 03:02 PM
damn man this form is nasty i like it man u got some mad money or japan is got some good deals keep up the good work

04-27-2005, 02:02 AM
good works !!

btw wht's he diff between Q's & K's shaft?

is it easy to source out parts there?

Rotary Magic
04-28-2005, 11:13 AM
Nice turbo , is that a Borg warner S200 turbo?

04-29-2005, 01:44 AM
Driveshafts were the same on my Qs and Ks although I do know sometimes you get 5 bolts rather than 6 bolts on the side of output shafts..

easy to outsource.. yea i guess

That turbo is a Garrett GT2871R .64

05-03-2005, 03:11 AM
thanks for the pics.... nice buildup man

if your not military whatcha doing over there? (if you dont mind me askin)

Teach English and DRIVE

well... this is a pissy load of updates.. couldnt really do much.. most was done and rain and not having the lift was causing me to be lazy and what not.. soo.. just got this done before it started raining !!

Got the wastegate and exhaust is Getting put on

Well, got the fuel rain with the Tomei FPR adapter on.. The Intake and Other junk is on battery died so I couldnt take more pics of progress.

You might not be able to see this.. but its one of the Oval front pipes NOT the round one.. to give me that EXTRA low clearance that I will need

Crack on the bumper.. but this bumper has a week or two left on this car

Car as it sits now.. will have alot changed shortly.. just in the middle of tunning and IC piping and what not to be done

The easiest but yet practical way to upgrade your reverse light output

First Unclip the lights and get a standard H1 Hi-beam light

2nd push up the green wire cut remove wire and spring.. Then take some plyers needle nose are good.. clap down on the silver part and twist it out of the housing

remove the black wire. clip the pieces of plastic except for One where the H1 bulb can fit down into.. take a saw or a small file and file out the bottom of the plastic part. but NOT all the way.. just to get the two prongs through.

Then clip the wires for the H1 off a spare or junked car.. Solder them onto the green and black wires to clip on .. so now you have removable H1 set and can change out if you dont like.

Oh yea forgot to mention.. I took a grinder to the round metal part of the Bulb itself just to cut it down ALITTLE so it fit nicely in the housing.
Car was not operational but will give light differences when I have a chance...

If any of you know.. JAPAN is SUPER dark at night .. they dont believe in streetlight for most part and my driveway is like a small little maze in the dark with Tinted windows I need that extra light.. Not worried about heat of melting the plastic or anything.. cause your REV lights are not on that much..

Update on car.. its getting the FMIC pipes custom made and oil cooler with element relocator is getting put in along with the D-jetro boost kit Pfc and Xcel tunning from URAS.

Gauges will be here anyday

Aero should be at the shop tomorrow

then paint

*Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored* so close but so far away

I WANNA DRIVE !!!!! :mad:

05-05-2005, 10:18 AM
Hey, I LOVE THE CAR MAN:). Every person who has ideas of doing stuff to there s14 is going to love you, hahaha. This is kinda off topic but how hard was it to get a teaching job in Japan? I assume you are not working in any big city's as well. I want to do it but, dont really know where to start since i dont know anyone personally who can set me up. Any help would be great!



05-05-2005, 11:00 PM
that's just beautiful man, beautiful

05-17-2005, 09:05 AM

VSN Variety shop nomuken

They are selling ALL their cars except for the 180sx
400,000 yen for the 13 coupe



surge Tank is all put together and ready to go along with the FPR on the strut tower

Intercooler is installed and working on the Pipes

Front view under my car of exhaust.. nice and clean.. lol front pipe is dope.. sits above the frame rail .. the RSR catback was used but like new for 100 bucks.. is a deal but probaby will toss it few month down the road for something with more grit.. or after i trash the res can from hitting

Couple shots of the front pipe and frame rail


05-17-2005, 09:27 AM
Are you telling me that S13 is being sold for under $4000. You've got to be fricken kidding me! :mad:

05-23-2005, 02:40 AM
Getting there.. still more to go

Got the FMIC pipes done and gotta bleed the brakes and adjust the FPR so I can break in the car before the tune.

mmmm.. Black FMIC .. install is very clean

sorry for not having any updates

To this date... I got the engine and all fired up pipping done and took it out to break in the new engine.. seals and what not.. well.. about 500KM into it.. blew the engine.. ringlet failure on 2 cyl.

SO, shop took it back and they are putting another engine in it..

I have been out of town for the past 2 weeks. ATL / LA / and now hawaii got a few more days before Im back in japan. Once i get back I will post some engine pics of that stuff.

Also, I have picked up my new front kouki headlights and getting the kouki crystal corners when i get back. I have run out of money before I could get the rest of my stuff..but I will manage somehow

I am still interested in that bumper so let me know.

Great build up and good information. Good luck on your build up looks like its gonna be a sick S14 :)

The easiest but yet practical way to upgrade your reverse light output

First Unclip the lights and get a standard H1 Hi-beam light

2nd push up the green wire cut remove wire and spring.. Then take some plyers needle nose are good.. clap down on the silver part and twist it out of the housing

remove the black wire. clip the pieces of plastic except for One where the H1 bulb can fit down into.. take a saw or a small file and file out the bottom of the plastic part. but NOT all the way.. just to get the two prongs through.

Then clip the wires for the H1 off a spare or junked car.. Solder them onto the green and black wires to clip on .. so now you have removable H1 set and can change out if you dont like.

Oh yea forgot to mention.. I took a grinder to the round metal part of the Bulb itself just to cut it down ALITTLE so it fit nicely in the housing.
Car was not operational but will give light differences when I have a chance...

If any of you know.. JAPAN is SUPER dark at night .. they dont believe in streetlight for most part and my driveway is like a small little maze in the dark with Tinted windows I need that extra light.. Not worried about heat of melting the plastic or anything.. cause your REV lights are not on that much..

Hey thats cool.

One question. Wouldn't the higher output of the H1 bulb cause your fuse to blow? It'll suck more juice than a regular 1156 bulb.

I failed basic electronics in high school. :(

Way to post from start to finish. The S14 looks and sounds great. Are you planning on keeping the S14.5 headlights for good or do you think you'll go to the "slant eyes?"

11-21-2005, 06:37 PM
those are zenki s14 lights...not s14.5.
s14.5 is s15 headlights on s14 chassis

thanks for the comps

I have been driving it at the track even went yesterday for some good fun.. getting used to the car a bit and starting to drive at a higher level. I know there might be a little video of it somewhere.. a few people took video at the track if i ever see some of it.. ill ask for a copy.

As of right now, In my house i have a full aero, front and rear overs, my new/used wheels, carbon bonnet... and kouki front lights.. these things i have bought already but i am not putting them on until i can pay for the paint that im wanting to get... its special paint so will take a little bit more.. Also, i have not touched the interior of the car yet.. so this car is FAR from being done. I just took care of what i thought was important first... engine / suspension ect.. looks will come soon.

keep your eyes open for updates in the beginning of next year.. probably will have some video of it on the track next month. once again.. thanks for comps
