Well, my old motor did itself a mis-chief and I got a new (stock) one!

The engine is yet another s14 motor but it's a jap one this time.

New bits include...

New Plenum
New Exhaust Manifold
Z32 afm
740cc high flow injectors
Rocker arm stoppers
Nismo GTR engine mounts ( they're weird, I'll post up photos as someone's obviously modified them to make them tougher!)
HKS Dump pipe (freebie attached to the engine)
Steering shaft spacer
alloy radiator
trust sump
New intercooler piping
New intake pipe
New front pipe (with flex piping)
Braided turbo and water lines

Hopefully starting with a new base again, I won't be burdened with problem after problem!!!

Should be back on the road this week after a tune. I'm really not sure what's next, time to focus and spend a bit of money on driving and suspension rather than everything else.

I'll load photos shortly!

sounds promising!

have you decided / already have an ecu?

starting with a fresh base is fantastic in all ways except for the time way and the money way...

yeah nice to finally have some positive news coming from a mechanic! I went and picked the engine and my mechanic gave it a once over before even spending a cent! Looks good!

I already have a PowerFC and Dr Drift will be tuning it once he's finished completing a long list of request. He's been a great help
