  • 4tune's fruity s13 , lots of pictures!

    Hello again modders!

    Just thought it would be a great time to make a build thread!

    After the epic welcome i got from few of you guys here it has been pretty cool to be here
    so thank you again to all of you for all being really nice

    I bought this car back in December of 2011 just before Christmas, guess it was a little gift for me or a really big one hahaha
    after picking up my girlfriend from her place we were driving up the road and we came across this s13 that well i have been staring down for the last 10 months checking it out every time i drove past thinking to myself , that owner needs a swift smack in the head for leaving it in the same spot for that long!

    Anywho i eventually got a hold of the owner and we talked it out and then he took me for a drive and then we discussed about the car.
    It was for $2000, got talking some more and he asks me "so you really really want it?"
    so i tell him "hell yeah!!".

    And picked it up on the trailer and drove off with it for just $1300!!
    BOO YA!.
    I got my REVS check back and everything was all good
    went through car and so far these are the specs:

    1989 silvia s13 , imported in 1997

    CA18DET : (copied and pasted)
    DOHC 4cyl. 16valve 1.8L turbo
    Displcement – 1809cc
    Horsepower – 175hp @ 6400rpm
    Torque – 166lbs/ft @ 4000rpm
    Bore – 83mm
    Stroke – 83.6mm
    Compression – 8.5:1
    Block – iron
    Head – Aluminum

    155,000 km/s on the shell
    engine not known , previous owner went through 3 motors and 2 gearboxes
    also has the HICAS system

    3" mendrel bent full exhaust system custom made
    t25 turbo running 10psi
    4sp auto
    pedders springs , pedders shocks
    JVC audio system "unsure what it is exactly" with two big 750w subs (stripped out)

    stock SMIC
    blitz BOV and turbo timer
    and an aluminium over flow bottle for the radiator

    that's pretty much it so far i think

    The car will need a respray and a few dings fixed , ill be respraying it in the original BLLAAAAAACKK! so it will be nice and shmick!
    I will be doing or try to do this car build all on my own or atleast with some help from my dad and some mates
    keeping it DIY as much as possible

        Thanks , no i will be swapping it over to the 5spd manual and will get a HD clutch of some sort down the track , not too fussy about it since it drives fine but it will be a definite , just need to collect parts and do it all in one hit

                        thanks a bunch dude , hopefully i dont dissapoint



                        well as some of you have probably been reading in the tech forum about a set of coilovers and all that stuff , i am now second guessing that option at the moment not because of the product just an issue that has risen
                        just randomly talking to some mates on our little car group and a guy on there is going to sell me a ca18 5spd for just $300!!

                        turns out , coilovers are apparently illegal anyway.. -sigh- i would like it legallish at the least lol

                          Ohhh, Another S13 build. I have a soft spot for these. This one's looking awesome. Fantastic deal for only $1300 too. And dem wheels. Loving it so far.
                          I await an update eagerly.

                          Coilovers are illegal? Really? Are you sure it's not just a restriction on height?
