Thanks guys. I am happy with the looks as well. You know I still have not buffed this car yet and it has been two years. I hope she lasts.

These are B15 Spec-V rims. I will be selling these as soon as I find some tires for my cobra r's.

Most states you cant pass inspection with racing harnesses, I know this is a rule in TX which is why I kept my stockers as well as my harnesses.

Thanks niceguy. The harness is my main belt. The stock motor does not work. It is the least of my worries right now. In FL, we do not have inspections. :cheers:

Right! I wonder if I would pass emissions with the corn. I would hope so. I also stopped at the junk and got some rear z31 brake caliper bracket. The darn things cost me $23. Oh well, it was the only z31 in the yard with brakes. Hopefully I can find a deal on some 275/40 or 265/40 tires so I can put my rears on with the "big" rotor upgrade.

You use the z31 bracket, s13 stock caliper, and 2004 Altima rear rotor.

Yea since s13 uses the same brakes. Just the lug is different.

Ohhh, I figured I should go ahead and upgrade the rear brakes since I did the BMC

I already have Z32 fronts, so I guess I got to make a trip to Nissan Heaven to get z31 bracket and hopefully Altima rotor.

Got these yesterday. 235/45. I have to save for 275/40. I am trying to sell my tranny's and other parts so I can swap these on. I may just put on the fronts and rock them with spec v rears. Not sure yet.

Thank you sir. I need to get center caps and real ones are a grip. I am trying to see if I can find 2.5" Nissan center caps.

Not sure if you want just Nissan ones or what. But....

I have center caps from a set of replicas I had back in high school. I can measure them to make sure they will fit. I believe I actually used them on my 98' cobra which had the same wheels you have. You can have them for $6 gifted ( obviously free as I will be shipping them). I believe it just says the companys name on them, I would just paint over it.


LMK!

It is great. I love it and am comfortable with it. Tuning is more theoretical rather than just putting in numbers in the computer. The biggest thing you need to do is understand boost timing map and visualize where you are going to be on a map when driving. It is harder for cruise/vac regions but for boost it is pretty easy. As for VE, set your timing map to something conservative and create an AFR map for cruise and boost maps. Then go out and drive. Also, to get faster results, take datalogs, run them in MegaLog Viewer and VE it. Then burn the new tune to the ecu and redo the steps. The base map is great. I tweaked mine a little bit for the timing but not much.

To sum it up, timing is the hardest to tune on this just because of the tools you use and what you understand. If you dyno tune it, your set. Setting AFR's is easy with VE Analyze. When I was tuning with TunerPro or Emanage, I needed a driver when I was tuning. Hope this helps.

So lately, my Profec B has been sticking. I have been hitting 20psi in first. 2nd and now third. I went and just disconnected it and am at spring pressue of 10psi. This baby is awesome for 10lbs especially with cool dense air. I am going to buy the DIY solenoid when I get a chance. I will keep the 10psi spring and run high boost setting to whatever I feel like. Of course, that will be after I buy some injectors. But for the most part, I can rock 10 psi for awhile.

Here is a long vid. Sorry for the crappy shots and commentary. It is hard to drive and record.

Aw man, it's still cool when you see those clips of the tach needle hurtling toward redline so easily. I'm the same way, I'd like to record some clips with my phone or camera but I'm not spending a bunch of money on a mount just to be able to post/upload something. I'm cheap lol....Congrats on the progress and end result!
