If u don't wanna ruin front weight but you want a 6 cylinder, get an RB20 and some other stuff, it will be less heavy in the nose.
An sr20 will be better in some things, but if u want a 6 cylinder, get an RB20
But a lot better option will be a UZ swap, it weighs kinda the same as a KA24DE but will be a lot better because high revving aluminum japanese v8 with more than 250hp, and with a supercharger and some bolt ons can hold more than 400 easily!

Money Spree!
Date: Sunday 2th February.

Just home, from trip to Tokyo. You may understand why I was at Tokyo during weekend...

Image

Here currently condition of Chillie. She did blown the turbocharger few days ago. I was find out, turbo blown due not having dump valve installed, which is shorter lifetime of turbocharger, so that what I guess, why my turbo become failed. I'm not replace turbo, I'm dump snail powered CA18DET, and replace to meaty power SR20DET that straight off from Silvia Spec-R. You may asked to me, "You could kept SR20DET from S13 for oringal spec." The answer is, Silvia Spec-R (known as S15) came with much more powerful than S13, roughty about 50bhp different, should be fun driving! My plan for Chillie, kept plan as simple. Not seriously messed around, or slammed it. Kept driveable, and OEM+ feel.

Mainly reason, I went to Tokyo. There UP garage company so I could look around. I have found red and clear rear light (70 V$), clear side marker (25 V$), and rare clear pignose front indictor (50 V$). Mostly company don't make clear pignose front indicator anymore so they become rarer, and their price was good deal. Not just UP garage, I went to STS store to collect new engine. New engine is; Nissan Silvia Spec-R SR20DET engine plus gearbox, they made only 20km, I paid that engine and gearbox 3,480 V$. I have to hired the van to order collect engine weight and size reasons, hire van cost me 300 V$.

Move on, few days, I taser you about new car coming...
Well, here she is!

It's 2008 Nissan Fairlady Z as facelift verison, basic model and it lovely colour called Sunset Orange. The engine was re-vision and improvement to VQ35HR than older engine style known as VQ35DE. I paid the vehicle only 1,800 V$! Mainly cheap was it been using loads of bad garage problem, the engine running like misfiring, very rough runner, and loss of power. The garage can't be arse to dialogue properly, and replaced six spark plugs, six coil packs, new fuel pump, and new fuel filter but it still kept mis-firing! Seller was gave up, and end of selling spare or repair. Lucky, it was very recently and bought it straight way. Seller inform to me, it was kept drinking oil and coolant. It's sound like head gasket have gone, but I need find out problems. Mainly, I bought that Z, was to make profit. Buy broken, fix it and sell for nicely profit. It should be help Chillie project.
I dared to fixed Z under 500 V$,

Wallet;
Before ~ 5,510 V$
Paycheck ~ + 470 V$
350Z ~ - 1,800 V$
Clear lights ~ - 75 V$
Rear light ~ - 70 V$

I saw on website, and they have HKS rockers, I was thinking replace OEM to HKS rockers.
For Z, I could give try replace head gasket, if I found the fault, but I would check surface condition.

Z's Mystic Problem.
Date: Sunday 9th February 2020

Since, Z having issue with misfiring, then I just noticed, it kept drinking the oil, coolant, and I notice the white smokes out of tailpipe. My engine can't start up quickly enough, it's got fairly slow starter or sometimes it won't start. Surely it must be head gasket failure, case about misfiring due to spark plugs being wet and blowing some of the smoke You know that book company that makes manuals called "Haynes"? I bought that book so I can hook up my laptop and look at Haynes book for Z, so i can follow their guide to disassemble the cylinder heads. The misfiring fault code was a problem on the left side cylinders, since it has V shape, but i decided to remove both cylinder heads.

After I finished removing both cylinder heads and completed stripping out head I inspected cylinder heat flatness and condition. I have noticed straight away, left side head gasket was completely blown head gasket and left head block got small damage that created coolant leaks into cylinders, fortunately no oil was leaking into cylinders. I would to like to repair both sides cylinder head gasket with kits, everything replaced from seals, gaskets etc and give it a proper clean up. I was amazed how garage didn't notice spark plug being wet after they replaced spark plugs or knowledge about head problem?

Strange of the history owner...
Date: LEAP OF YEAR DAY!!!

So, I have done spoils about the new car that I bought…

Yep, it’s really sad to time sell Z and Chillie after their maintenance is completed.
For Z, 466 V$ for parts and sold it for 6,000 V$, and for Chillie I can’t remember exactly the price that I spent for parts, I would say rough about 1,5230 V$, and sold for fairly price 11,000 V$.

Here what car, I have bought…? You knew this car before as on old forum thread...

Image
(Photo ~ Last seen on forum before Jimmy went disappeared.)

I found a couple of forums and the seller explains, and let me explain. Tango's number plate was matched...
About a year ago, Some people may have known that vehicle before. It was the original owner called Jimmy aka “Buzzsaw” proudly owned S2K that he named her “Tango” due to the paintwork colour. He vanished after mixing up the vehicle at scrap-yard, yes Tango did NOT crush into metal cube.

Let me explain before how it ended in the scrap yard but didn't get crushed.
Jimmy was having fun with his friend named Big Smoke and Franklin at Tsukuba Circuit for track day. Jimmy looked very excited, after fews of lapping Jimmy decided to quicker speed at T1 corner to bring quicker time but he had basically stock suspension but with Honda Integra DC5 wheel plus brake, clearly it doesn’t helped and Jimmy realised he was going too fast and diving the ditch ending of he was extremely panic and losing to recovering from driver mistaken, ending of Tango went spun out, damaged rear suspension and possible some of bumper due bumped into barrier wall.

Jimmy seen be, he didn't bother to fix the problem himself, so he sent the goods of his friend to repair Tango damage, however his worker did muddle up and take wrong S2K to scrap, which is Tango, end of going to scrap. Jimmy was alerted due he doesn’t got vehicle running, so friend forced himself to go scrapyard to tell him, it was wrong S2K.

He saw orange S2K dropped into a crusher. He was confused and told Jimmy as mis-information, but that he was last spoken to Jimmy. He discovered Tango was parked, and he tried to call Jimmy muti-time but he didn't answer. He did tell the scrapyard owner, it was the wrong S2K and it was swapped over, so Tango didn’t crush it. He decided to repair Tango to perfect condition but he tried to call Jimmy many times but the contact was lost, the police were alerted and they found out Jimmy went to a different country. Up till he finally owned Tango for a good nearly year (after Tango was repaired) without any problem and recently timing and full serviced used by Honda genuine parts then he started to sell Tango.

So, I saw an advert for a good price with a recorded salvage title S2K Imola Orange that listed price 8,500 V$...
Test driven, and inspect it, can’t complain about what's wrong with Tango..

So I bought it…?

Image

Image

Yep, paid full price, can’t complain with that S2K, I kept her old name that Jimmy named her? Yep, I still named her Tango. It's quite a shame Jimmy muddled himself and went to another county, but it doesn’t matter because I’m now owned Tango. She doesn’t change anything, the modified, still untouchable. I'll be able to list the modified Tango that was installed.

2001 Honda S2000 AP1 aka “Tango” spec ~
