most of you guys know what the deals is but,

got offered a fairly well setup rb25 for a desent affordable price. so i had to choose between an insanly quick nissan or a mildly quick stock xr6T.

the nissan won due to its potentual track work if all goes wrong. who knows i may even drift this and street the beams instead???
but anyway i rushed off to find an s13 as i've alway liked a nice clean s13 for it simple look and nice more up to date interior.
so aim of the game is, i want somthing very clean that im happy to look at every day. with the power that i'll never get bored of.

so i ended up with this s13. i wanted either blue or green two tone. nothing else would sufice. i wanted sunroof and aircon while still being relitivly clean and on the cheap side of things. so to tick all these boxes would probley have taken ages to find one and i wanted one now!

now it's not the mintest example but with a bit of effort i think its still saveable. the major things like rattlely interior and leaking door seals were sweet. everything else could be fixed up with abit of effort






(pic of engine going in when it was getting built up)


bit of front end damage... sr autos nothing special either.
had the radiator explode on me bringing it home also :lol:
nissans will be nissans though i guess! will have to get used to breaking down alot now! :p

plans are mild street/daily. won't be much to look at as i want attention away from the rb that will mean instant rapage as soon as the bonnet gets opened.

lets see what happens! will i convert from toyota?

as much as i'd love to this is my daily/street car so it will see some pretty mild 17's probley. mabey 17x9 -30 ish if i get carried away.

or i might try and build this one "properly" taking into account geometry/scrub radius/correct tyre sizes ect.

so yeah im not to sure where im going with it but i must fly abit under the radar

as i said before just be a clean looking s13 with a powerplant!

open screamer! and im keeping it open depending on when it cracks? and a deadly silent exhaust!

i really havn't paid any attention to turbos... mabey thats why i don't like them so much??

im so excited about this! i wanna get this thing up and going! need to offload the mira first though.

lol to keep that RB silent you will need drinking straws for an exhaust. in fact i know for sure your fuel pump would be louder if you went that way...

also once the screamer opens up, all bets are off.


fuckin love it. let the madness continue! :lol:

my rb20 is pretty quiet it looks like (though someone else did it so I'm not 100%) its a 3" turbo back (with screamer but plumbed back in) all the way to the rear section where it looks like they have bolted the stock bit back on

yeah but yours is a fairly stock RB20, not some off tap monster like this.

a mate who has a 340awkw R32 GTR got an EPA letter a couple of years ago for noise. the system he had to get to pass was so quiet that i farted and heard it.
seriously you could hear his fuel pumps from 10m away but not the car.
