Obviously the buildup/worklogs forum is not nearly as active as it once was. But for interests sake, it'd be great to see where some of these projects are/finished up/what they accomplished.

A sort of where are they now? :D

Lets hear some stories/updates!

Sold my 180sx, saw it for sale on gumtree 12 months later.....dumped on its arse and flared guards. Apparently the crank bearings were replaced....dodged a bullet there. Still miss it though.

s13 is still owned by my brother but its getting cantankerous in its own age, its blown up two gearboxs, torched the block and head so got a rebuild.
Electrics are playing up.
Needs bodywork, theres few dings a huge crack in the frontbar, cracks in the and crows feet in the rear bar.....but the next month or so should see it fixed.

It got r33 brakes, a nistune, cams/springs, ARC turnflow front mount and a 2863r. made 233rwkw.
Apart from repairing its issues and maintenance its done.


s15 is pretty good, except Ive been reversed into twice in the last 6 months, PS is leaking and ive got a weep around one of the sump bolts....

Its making 277rwkw. 2863r, forged bottom end, kw v3 coilovers, R33 brembos, Meister s1rs, 2863r, poncams, haltech, e85 and an e85 sensor. Also got it on the VSCCS register.

Again, no plans except ongoing maintenance, If I blow the gearbox I'll probably need a z32/33/rb25 gearbox or a strengthened s14/s15 gearbox but it seems fine at the moment. When the nismo coppermix gives up itll get a quieter clutch, Its more of a quick streeter and Im finding NVH becomes more of a consideration as I get older, I chose soft streetable coilovers and havent even thrown in the nismo 1.5way LSD I have thats been sitting around for a year.....

That looks to be a fun streeter CraZeeE. If I were in a position to build a well round, quick street car, it'd probably end up very close to your S15.

Nice build.
