Well, I've decided to make the jump from an S13 to an S14. While I'm still working out motor issues in the S13, I will be just cleaning this S14 up a bit. Once the motor is completely broken in and tuned (and running great), I will be making the swap between chassis. Until then, I will be just adding miles to this car commuting to work, keeping the mileage off of my 2007 G35 Coupe :D. Picked this up two days ago for a reasonable price. It's a 96 240SX SE, but with no sunroof! I'm just shy of 6'4", so the extra headroom is nice! Everything works, including the AC. Paint is not the greatest, but the body is fairly straight (small dings).

I haven't touched the car yet. It's still dirty, lol. This weekend I plan to do the best I can to make the paint look a little better, detail the inside, and paint the lip. I'm also starting a list of parts I need to find to clean it up. Zenki tail lights, driver side fog light, and random interior pieces so far. Interior is pretty clean overall. Gotta love the 90's pattern... Ha ha.

Well, I had the chance to clean the car up a bit. Painted the lip because it was gross before, sanded down the headlights to make them clear again, and did what I could to the interior and exterior to make it look decent. The car definitely needs a paint job, but for now, this will do. Here are a couple pics of the exterior and one of the interior.

Got a new cat back exhaust for the S14. Didn't like the Topspeed cat back it had, lol (selling it now). It's an Apexi N1 Evo 3" to resonator and 3.25" (like it really matters, lol) to the muffler. It's all shiny and stuff...

Installed the exhaust, it sounds way better than the old one!

Picked up a low miles (so they say, lol) JDM Z32 Twin Turbo 5 Spd Trans today for a decent price. It's for the SR when I swap it in the S14, so it wont be touched at least until later this coming summer, but I had the money from taxes to grab it, lol.
