I am so glad I do not live in Cali anymore. Moved back home to Bama where the question is, "emissions, what the hell are those."

Is there a picture of the entire engine bay that shows which electric parts should be covered when degreasing it? The pics on Page 1 were too big and blurry.

Thanks

I started with z32 brakes, suspension and clutch on mine, it handled like a dream. Sold it a while back but I really miss it, oh well. so yeah I'd say start with essentials and suspension. good luck with your project.

Hey guys! I'm new to this forum and new to modifying cars. I plan on buying my first car soon and I plan to buy a SR20DET 240sx S13. I'm trying to plan out my build and I want some advice and feedback. This is my current plan:
Garret GT2871r Turbo
CX Racing Front Mount Intercooler Kit - 31"x11"x3"
740cc Injectors
D-Jetro Sensor or Z32 MAF
Spec D N1 Style Catback Exhaust Megan Racing Test Pipe
Tomei Expreme Exhaust Manifold A'PEXi Super Suction Kit
100 Shot of Nos

Questions: With a good tune can I safely run 400+ daily driven?

Do I need any internals done to run NOS/400hp?

Will the N1 Style give me a loud exhaust? What will?

Should I run the Test Pipe or a High Flow Cat? Why?

What coilovers do you recommend? (I'm not running bags please don't suggest)

What else should I get? What am I doing wrong?

Z32 MAF or D-Jetro?

What else can I get to run 500+ daily driven? Thank you in advance anybody (:

I think another problem that should be wheel bearings and lubing caliper bolts.

This a good resource. I will be picking up an S chassis in the next week or two after not having one 5 or so years, so this is a good refresher of things to do to your 20 year old car to make sure she stays running.

New to the forum, but not exactly new to modding cars. Not long picked up my 240sx s13. Thinking about changing out my headlights from stock, probably for something like the kits at ledheadlightspro.com which I think look quite cool....or maybe HIDs, depending on what I can find that fits.
