Also that Supra is one nasty wreck, what will you need that V161 for? Can't wait for your buddy to make it a drift car though!

Every dead body that is not exterminated, gets up and kills
The people it kills gets up and kill...
Finally, the update is here! A lot of stuff happened in these months!
So, let's rewind to see what happened!
October 30th, 2019.
In this day, i got the new build in the garage after some days of sorting out the delivery.
Let's take a look!
This is the new project! Maybe you know it!
I bought an S14, and not any S14!
This is Ziga's (@Lagano) old s14! A 97' Nissan Silvia K's built to drift
RB26 Swapped w rb25 5 speed, zenki front end, navan aero, etc, nice car
But what happened with it? Well, some days before Hagibis Typhoon hit a big part of Japan
Mostly Tokyo, where this car was stored, as u know, Ziga in that time was in OKC, so he couldn't pick it up
So, it got totaled, and that's where i came! I bought it for 4000, and with shipping 5000!
Very cheap, isn't? Well, interior is nasty, suspension and brakes are fucked, and engine is probably fucked and frozen.
Let's tear it apart and see how fucked this car is (well, i know because it's finished, technically lol, but let's show it to u).
We took the engine, transmission, windshield and the vinyl wrap, and we realized how fucked this car was
Engine was frozen and rusty, suspension was corroded, brakes, bushings and other stuff was very fucked up,
So, what i did? well, spend a lot of money and make the best s14 that i could do, so, let's see the 4 month progress!
We teared the car to the skeleton, and we started with a long list of mods!
A lot of the parts were supplied by the Side 2 Side shop, so, BIG THANKS TO THESE GUYS! Real MVP'S
Also @Nightkid will be doing the livery, so, this is a community project
And the rescue of a VStanced legend.
The S14 got a lot of love! We cleaned the body, removed the superficial rust that it had
Put the new Works9 bodykit with a kouki front end, D-Max hood, Kouki wing, OEM windshield,
and other bits that we will put like Kouki front and tail lights.
Also we put the completely new suspension, incluiding:
Wisefab front and rear arms kit, Tein coilovers, a new oem steering rack, StopTech 4 piston 332x32 big brake kit
Hydraulic E-Brake and some Work CR Kai 18'inch wheels with Dunlop Direzza DZ102 tyres
(I ended up swapping the wheels for some chromed Work CR 3p, you will see them in the final of the update, well, u saw them in the teaser)
So now, the handling departament is in great shape!
In the interior the car got everything new because the old interior was DESTROYED with that dirty salt water
So, panels, dashboard, head liner, wiring and other bits got replaced with new oem parts
But we added to the recipe a Nardi Corn deep steering wheel, Bride Zeta III seats, the hydro, a Haltech Dash Display
A custom panel for the new oil pressure, fuel pressure, boost gauge and the Programmable Fueltech FT300 ECU
We had to relocate the ac controls and stereo in the center console where the hydro is mounted, a little bit unpractical but hey, RACECAR.
Also the stereo has bluetooth so hey, i can still put some music and have ac, not too bad.
Also i bought the harnesses for the seats but we don't have the rollcage so for now we are using the stock seatbelts.
So now, the interior is tidy, fresh and ready to rip!
And you thought that the engine will be stock or like a mildly built sr or some shit like that? SIKE.
We got another RB26 from an R33 with a CD009 transmission with an adapter kit and a EXEDY Hyper Twin clutch
The engine it's stock, but u think that we are leaving it stock? HA, SIKE.
We teared it apart to the short block, we changed all the gaskets
We put a Greddy metal head gasket, we put the stock head but with a agressive but streetable port job
The head was put in the engine and filled with some other goodies like Tomei 272 cams,
Supertech valve springs and retainers, adjustable cam pulleys, Greddy cambelt and pulley kit, and Brian Crower valves
Then we put a Greddy turbo kit (gift from @Benny , thank u boi) that was in his old gtr, capable of more than 1200hp)
The kit incluided the turbos, custom intake plenum, the manifolds, intercooler with piping,
fuel rail, blow off valve, wastegate and new air filters
Also we put Injector Dynamics ID2000 Injectors, an Apexi PFC D Jetro AFM, Supertec R35 GTR Smart coil conversion kit,
Fueltech Wideband kit with sensors (O2 Sensors), ecu Patch Harness, 5 point grounding kit, and a AEM fuel pump.
All of this linked to the Fueltech FT300 ECU.
So now, the car is in the paint booth, let's wait until the paint is done, u will love the colour, it's perfect!
And with the livery that we will put, it will look NUTS.
2 weeks later...
(i don't have the exact day because i lost all the dates)
The painting job is already done, it looks wicked!
(obviously, i grayed out the colour in edit so u don't see it)
The lights are in the car, wiring was done, the engine is in the car with new ISR mounts
We put a KAAZ 2way LSD into this thing, a short shifter and a new driveshaft
We put also the intercooler, a new Kakimoto muffler with a custom exhaust pipe
And a new 48mm Koyorad aluminum radiator with the fans and other stuff.
So now, it's time to put all the bodyparts that are missing and try to start it!
It looks wicked, i love it! Now, let's try to start it...
IT STARTS, I'm so happy, runs so smooth,
We put a preset tune for driving around the block, checking if it's all ok and take it to the dyno
And that's what we did!
After some pulls and tuning we got to the final hp result.
685HP, that's perfect for this car, high hp, but streetable! Lovin the result.
But as u know, SLP is closed, so i lost my job, but luckily i found a job, but i have to move to Saitama.
So i got my YEET35 and the s14 shipped, and i drove the r34, luckily @Nightkid wanted to help me
Also she wanted to pick up a car from Osaka, so she helped me with the move with her uncle.
Also she will do the livery
So good memories, and almost two years of progress, Thank you SLP.
Now, let's rewind to today.
I moved to Saitama, why? I have some work in the Tomei Factory in Tokyo
And saitama is near to tokyo, so i have my personal shop here and my house.
Also i did a lot of things to the R34, but we will see them later, not let's get back into the S14.
After more than 4 months of work, effort, love and sweat, the s14 is ready.
So, u wanna see it?
Well, say hello to Dragon!
(clicc for more enjoyement and see the photos when the song kicks in)
IT LOOKS AWESOME!
The chosen colour was a custom red based of an Nissan AR2 Red.
The hotboi livery was made by @Nightkid and me
And we recreated all of the old window stickers (except the side ones) but with a lil touch.
I'm impressed of this car, it's the best s14 that i could build. I love it!
The attention at detail, the engine, the suspension, damn.
This is a great car! I want to bring it to SEMA some day when i get the opportunity.
So now, it's time for the GTR baby!
The gtr some of the same upgrades as the S14, but with some other stuff, the s14 was a drift car
The r34 is probably or a track car or a wangan car, so it's tuned in another way.
Shall we see it?
Say hello to BlackBird!
Do you like it?! I LOVE IT!
I took the concept car from Blackbird, the 1st R34 imported to the USA for MotoRex, but this is in another level...
In the exterior the car got a Z-Tune conversion with a Top secret carbon hood, carbon fiber side skirts and carbon fiber rear diffuser
All matched with a satin black paintjob.
In the suspension departament we put HKS Hipermax coilovers
Rigid bushings, the same StopTech 4 piston big brake kit that the S14 has
And some 18'inch BBS LM wheels with the same Dunlop Direzza DZ102 tyres.
In the engine we got also similar stuff to the S14.
We put a Garrett GTX3576R Gen II turbo kit, Tomei 272 cams, Supertech Valve springs and retainers
Brian crower titanium valves, adjustable cam pulleys, a Haltech Elite 2500 ECU, Injector Dynamics ID2000 Injectors, Apexi PFC D Jetro AFM,
Supertec R35 GTR Smart coil conversion kit, Haltech Wideband kit with sensors (O2 Sensors), ecu Patch Harness,
5 point grounding kit and an AEM fuel pump, an Exedy Hyper Twin clutch, a Kaaz LSD, Kakimoto muffler with custom exhaust pipe
Greddy cambelt, greddy metal head gasket, short shifter and all new oem gasket replacement.
I'm hoping for high 600's, low 700s with this configuration
And in the interior got a new upholstery like the Z-Tune interior
Nismo black and red steering wheel and a 320kph NISMO cluster.
This R34 got a lot of love, and this is the first stage
This will be a great project! I'll drive it like this to get in touch with the awd punch
Next step will be : Forged internals, bigger turbo, better tune and ready for the +1000.
Also some aesthetic changes, but for now i'm very happy with the result.
Now, let's see the new garage!
30 minutes later
Welcome to my new shop!
I got this nice shop from a contact, the same guy who sold the tokyo shop to SLP
Pretty nice, rent was pretty cheap and the place was equipped with lifts and other stuff.
So i already fitted my cars here, so let's do a walkthrough and show you my other cars.
We already talked about the R34 and the S14, but i had to show u some other shots
About this A80, this is a 96 Toyota Supra SZ-R, i bought it in Yahoo Auctions for 6k
Why? Because the SZ-R got the 6speed GETRAG that worth 9-12k easily, so i bought it as a parts car
I already got sold the most of the parts and the body the next week will be picked up by a friend from tokyo
He wants to build a pro drift car, so this will do the trick, he already needs to swap the frontend and the floor pan
so in that point he can do a lot more things to this thing...
And my beautyful HR Swapped Skyline G35/V35, or most known as YEET-35
This is my 04' Skyline V35, i bought it last year and used it as my practice drift car
It has a VQ35HR swap, new intake plenum, new exhaust, Tomei Procam camshafts with valves and retainers
Coilovers, my old LV1 wheels from my old R34 GTT and a brake upgrade.
I neglected this car for a long time, but even counting that, it looks awesome
I will make some more upgrades on it soon, but i keep it simple and reliable.
And, that's all, (for now)
Hopefully in this new life for me i will get more projects here and probably soon start a business
So yeah, hopefully you liked this 4/5 month update on the projects!
See you soon!
