Car looks sexy as hell. What wheels are those? Yay for low ass compression. Sh*ts prolly close to being non interference motor at that point lol. Id always rather run more boost on pump/ be more protected from detonation than spool 200rpm sooner.

Q brakes are great, they're up front only right now but they feel powerful. I used regular black paint on the bay but I put 2 layers of JC620 urethane clear coat.

They're cobra wheels, and these are the projectors, coincidentally I make and sell the kits :lol:

I still plan to order an O&J stage 2 cam, and I'll probably try and find some 550 injectors, but plan is to run 20psi daily, so it should be over 350whp, I dyno'd 348hp with the same turbo and almost the same setup at 16psi. This is also depending on the fact that I get my tuned ECU working.

They're a take off the OEM cobra wheels, made by OEM Concept designs, 17X10.5 +27 rear and 17X9 +23 up front.

As for bumper its not a 180sx bumper, but fitment was perfect, best FRP bumper I've ever installed.

This is where taste comes in... I think the other cobra wheels are hideous. Any pics of the wheels on your car?

Nm.. .those look really good, I thought you were talking about the bullit rims... I like the polished silver look, I was actually concidering having my tires pulled off so I could have my rims polished.

Wheels are $130 each for 17x10.5 +27 and only $15 to ship a set of them. These wheels wont fit up front though. Have to get the 17x9 size for up front.

I had 10.5" wheels on the front of one of my setups, but they were -6 offset. You could run them up front, you'd just want 25mm spacers... mine came as a set w/ tires, if I had it my way, I would have run the 10.5's up front too ..

Snapped a day light picture today, last day with a red hood, should be throwing on the CF hood tommorrow. :wink:

275 rear, 255 front both 40 series. I need to get narrower tires up front though so I can go a bit lower.

I left a "blank" spot for a fog light or daytime running light. I will eventually put another light in beside the projector.

As for the headlights and my "recipe" I have no problem disclosing how they are made, anyone who appreciates how I made them would realize they're easier to just buy them from me. I 3d modeled the OEM headlight assembly, modified the geometry and had new panels, linkages and tie rods made. Fitment is perfect and installation only takes an hour or 2. The lighting improvement over stock is good, but I would say the visual improvements are more enjoyable, they make the S13 front end look newer.

Hotbox, I should be down for racing on the 9th if weather is permitting. Still have to tie down a few lose ends, but it should be ready to go.

Lol sh*t man, not many are willing to elaborate on something they sell. I dont think i would if i was tryin to make a buck in an already tough market. But, it is much better for the community i suppose.

Random question, idk if you had the car painted, or did it yourself, or what; but do you guys replace all the window and door seals?? Did you have to go through nissan to get them or is there aftermaket makes that still fit worth a damn and dont ruin ur pants with burns.

I would have liked to replace the seals but i just taped over them...

I didnt really elaborate to a degree that would make the lights easy to replicate, maybe if I offered up all my drawings and model files. Even if someone had all that info, they'd still have to pay more than I sell them for to get all the work done.
