Ok dug out some more pictures, I've got a ton of pictures still on the camera so will take a bit of time to dig it out.

As for the work I'm actually starting up a new garage that does mods and I've a Honda mechanic and another lad. I've also a partnership with a sprayer who's renting out a section of the premises for his spray booth. I cant really advertise on here as I'm sure that'll be breaking some forum contract. :) but once we get going I'll be-able to diverge more info.

So how come your using the same unit that Mov is using for his project?

He is not using the unit pal its HIS

He is investing in the business

Hopefully will be doing all sorts

More to honda's tbh as there is not a big market in Nissan
 
Just posted in Mov's thread but I also hope your car is going well too McCheung :) Eagerly anticipating both your cars :)

I WILL be back...

Ok been a while since I've posted so finally got round to getting the SR20DE into the firefly and she sound sweet. Heres a video with the engine sound on idle. i was to excited to give it a spin i forgot to video it on the industrial estate lol. I'll have a video next week when I get the coil overs fitted.

Decided to go for red cam cover over the white one like Mov's in the end :)

You know what its like Mov work gets in the way as always :D

Cheers Peposhi, went for Honda Championship white instead of brilliant white and had the alloys blown over as well. The cam cover was sprayed with Honda flame red or something like that cant remember off the top of my head.

Oh yea swapped someone the black repeaters for their standard ones which i think works better than black.

New all in one key system with boot release and remote central locking... only issue was it took me 4 key cutters before someone would cut the key for me!
Timpsons key cutter bloke: "Sorry we dont cut them type of keys here"
Me: "So why you got picture of car keys on your wall?"
TKCB: "We only cut our own ones"
Me: "How much is that then?"
TKCB: "We charge £125"
Me: "Ermm ok thank for your help... bye"

The local key cutter was giving me funny looks as if i stole an Escort XR3i and blagging him to cut me a key :D Though I think it was his responsible face, as he still cut it for me 2 for £10

I had one of them for a while, make sure you tighten up the screws every so often as mine worked loose and broke.

Cheers for the info joe, was it the screw that held the actual key? Seems fine on mines as can only access if key Is flicked 1/2 way out.

All the screws worked loose after a while because of the twisting action on the whole unit.

Funny enough the wald kit was designed in the 90s, its like all good things from Japanese like thundercats and pokemon from the 90s :D so its the look i was after :)

The Alloy's are rotas sprayed championship white to match the body work.

Hi Ollie from Sky Insurance, cheers for sorting out the insurance for the next part of the project :)

So shes pass her MOT for another 12 months with the SR20DE engine in had a ton of hassle with the custom polo coilovers as the MOT place was very picky about them, so had to go back 3 times till they where satisfied which is great cos it means it'll go in a straight line HAHA

Seeing I have a 12 month pass to do what I like again this is whats going on.

A Garrett T28
With a unversal Intercooler and pipes.
remapped Nistune ECU

Lots of jigging and poking of the car to get the intercooler in.

ok its all in now and its running nicely very smooth up the gears and dam its got more power than i imagined, currently set on 5psi. The Nistune ECU plugged in with no issues. Dont really want to rag it around till i get it on the dyno to check on the air/fuel mixture.

Boost gauge is currently taped infront of the speedo till i figure out where I'm going to mount it. Was thinking pillar mount or to the right side of the speedo cover. I do like i being infront of the speedo and it looks fair cool :D but it blocks out the mileage display. any suggestions?

I'll be looking into a dyno in the next couple of weeks just to check the air/fuel mixture. dont want to be melting any pistons :)

I've been driving around google maps :D (well saves on petrol) and think I've found a place for a good photoshoot which I'll try and get some arty pics done next week.

Hey Andy_S, my championship white k11 is so different when u put your brilliant white next to it :D Once you've got your done you wont regret it mate even with just an SR20 its mint and can easily over take just about anything on the open road.

This car is a beast. 2.0lr turbo....the word Rapid doesn't come close.

Get a passenger ride out on in an Ariel Atom V8......that'll give you a better definition of rapid. I highly recommend a change of underwear and a sick bag if you are easily ruffled ;)
