Alrighty , let´s do a little recap of the cars i still own (lmoa )
When i came back from my Eurotrip , the ichigo was FINALLY finished and in one piece and ready to drive after a full respray .
Yes , you read that right , FULL RESPRAY. But wait , there´s more , it´s not white anymore !
Even tho i love the Aspen white color SO much , it was the perfect time to switch and spice things up a littlebit and i´ve decided to paint the S15 in a factory Nissan color - active red ! And i must say that this looks MUCH MUCH MUCH better than Aspen white !
Barney the 993 Turbo
As i´ve said earlier " Not gonna lie , things has changed a littlebit . After a calculation of all the parts i would need for the 993 , i came to a conclusion that it would be better to get a BNR34 ( or something like that ) for a wangan project " Well , it´s been 3 weeks since i wrote that comment and i´ve decided to follow my gut and either
A.) Keep the 993 Unmolested (at the end of the day it´s a 993 Turbo S in a rare color)
B.) Sell the 993 to someone , who´s collecting rare cars for a reasonable price ( -ll- )
After the most stressful days , hours , minutes and seconds of my life ,i´ve finally figured out the future of the 993 I´ve decided , that the best option out of those 2 would be to sell the car to someone else , who´s gonna take care of it and move onto another car platform for my dream Wangan project , and i´ll be doing an auction on the 993 . But why , you´ve wanted this car so much ?
As i´ve said , it would cost me thousands and thousands of $ to make it capable of racing on the Wangan + the 911 i´ve bought is a collectors piece - The last aircooled 911 ,twin turbos , one of the rarest Porsche colors and AWD system . Yes , i´ve bought the car for a well over 80 000$ , which is still a shit ton of money for a car ,but i can get a LOT more money for this car because the prices of these cars are currently sky rocketing ( literally ) Just look at the prices of for example the 911 993 Carrera RS- 300- 500 000$ ! Judging by the way the prices of these cars are increasing , i´m gonna be able to sell mine for a well over 90 000$ . Which would be perfect to buy myself the perfect car for my dream wangan project !
On the other hand , I´ve always wanted one and i´m incredibly happy that i got my little hands on one so nope , i´m not gonna sell the E46 too , you can relax now . But what i´ll do is to make it handle even better than it already does and somehow fix the problems that SMG transmission have to create the perfect all around weekend car !
Well , as you guys saw , recently i´ve bought A LOT of parts for my BCNR33 from the STS auto parts store .
- Endless 6 POT & Racing 4 Brakes Kit : V$8554
- Top Secret BCNR33 Carbon Rear Diffuser : V$1397
- 4x Volk TE37 Saga : V$3448
- 4x Advan Neova AD08 : V$841
- Nismo BCNR33 400R Hood : V$5500
- Nismo hood garnish : V$550
- Nismo 400R Bumper lip : V$750
- Nismo Carbon wing blade : V$1600
V$22,640 worth of GT-R parts in total - already paid for all of the parts more than a month ago .
Since then , all of the body parts are paintmatched and already installed on the car !
As you can see the front end got a little 400R treatment with the Nismo 400R lip , Nismo hood garnish AND Original Nismo BCNR33 400R Hood that costed me 5 550V$ ! Yup ,
that´s right ! 5 550V$ for a oem carbon hood but i´m not complaing tho , the BCNR33 (and also the BNR34 ) is my absolute dream car and dream build and i don´t wanna cheap out on any part that is meant for this car because it´s my baby . With this mindset i´m prob gonna spend a fortune on this car but i really don´t care , i´m keeping this car FOREVER !
But wait , there´s more ! Not gonna lie , the BCNR33 is a pretty heavy car and with the power upgrades i´m planning to get , the BNR34 brakes , that i´ve installed on the car when i bought it , are just not enough to stop all that mass and that´s why i´ve decided to invest into some ( a lot ) better brakes . There´s A LOT of aftermarket BBK´s for Skylines but the best one in my eyes has to be the one by Endless , 6 POT and Racing 4 BBK . This BBK should be more than enough for the power i´m shooting for - 550 to 600HP .
As most of you also noticed , the BCNR33 got some new shoes , yaaaaaay ! I´ve decided to retire ( for now ) the CE28´s and go for a classic wheel with new design , Volk TE37 Saga Face 3 in the classic GT-R specs - 18x 10 1/2J +11 Offset wrapped in a 295/30R18 Toyo R888R´s . Originally i´ve ordered the Yokohama Advan Neova AD08´s but i´ve traded them for a brand new set of Toyo R888R´s for moar grip . Why R888R? Well , i already had them on the CE28´s and i must say that i really like em for the amount of grip they have , which i´m 100% gonna need ( just wait a little while to see what i´m talking about lmoa) .
AND to finish of the whole exterior , Nismo BCNR33 carbon wing blade and Top secret carbon diffuser (as you guys noticed 3 weeks ago)
But now , let´s fast forward to this week .
THOSE ARE MINE´S PARTS ( HAHA GET IT )
Currently the BCNR33 is at the Mine´s shop . Why you may ask ?
As i´ve said earlier , i WAS planning on doing some engine mods to bump up the power of the RB26DETT . But how ?!!?! What has been done to the engine ?!
Well , ever since i got the car i´ve had a huge internal fight between the Mines Stage I and Mines Stage II engine kits . AND after almost 4 months of ownership i´ve finally decided what i´m gonna do to the engine . I´ve decided to go with the Mine´s Stage II engine kit ! What does that mean ? Well , that means that i´m gonna loose 30 000V$ and gain almost 300HP !
But , what is Mines Stage II ? It´s a fully build engine ( using the N1 block )by Mine´s with a maximum of 580Hp using HKS GT2530 twin turbo setup with - perfect for a track / wangan weapon like my BCNR33 !
And what is the full part list ?You can find the full partlist you can find right here !
Now , let´s go back to 11/10/2019 and my newest purchase ,
2014 Ford Mustang GT Premium
A mustang?! Well , yup ! i´ve always liked the S197a Mustangs ever since i was like 9 years old lmao and that´s the reason why i´ve DM-ed Benjamin from STS asking if he´ll be able to source me a low mileage 2014 GT Premium with a 6 Speed manual in Oxford white paintjob . After days of searching for the perfect "contestant" , he found this one right here :
For 22 888V$ with 4 577V$ commission - Which is kinda a lot of money for a Mustang but it was 100% worth it .
And on 11/10/2019 She touched the Fukushima ground with the whole STS Crew !
Okay so let´s do a overhaul of the whole car :
2014 GT Premium model
6 speed manual
31 xxx.xxx miles on the odometer
Oxford White paint without any scratches or dents
Black leather interior
Boss rear diffuser and no-name aftermarket front bumper lip
And what are my plans with it ? Well ,
1.) fix the handling ( i really don´t wanna kill pedestrians on the sidewalk )
2.) Make it look good ( already ordered some wheels from STS auto parts )
3.) Small engine upgrades to bump up the power a littlebit ( which isn´t really necessary since the mustang GT have 420Hp )
And that´s it for now i guess ! Can´t wait to see you next time ( which is hopefully gonna be when my BCNR33 is gonna be finished )
