Wow ... that looks great ... it made the T/C rod angle look way better. And you should still have room for a normal style sway bar. If you raise the T/C rod front mount too much, you will need to run the sway bar under the control arm or something more complicated.

Thanks! I think it has something to do with the way the S13 LCA is constructed. And I lowered the TC rod a bit at the LCA.

Im pretty confident I will clear a sway bar. Im more worried about suspension characteristics. I already have a sway bar plan that everyone I have talked to looks at me sideways about.

Thanks! I'm pretty excited too.


I'm definitely doing things. Just not quite ready to present. Hopefully this weekend.

Not what I thought I was going to post... but eye candy anyways.

Got my new Radiator! And it fits just about perfect! Way lighter than the old one too.

Beautiful, nice score dude. I wish I would have ordered the Sentra one like that, but I went with the plastic caped one lol

Is this the radiator you got? https://www.summitracing.com/parts/gri- ... /overview/

I had similar dimensions in my old 510, so I'm thinking about that one for a KA or CA18

I have the 24" wide one. I had to try and squeeze between my intercooler piping.

Not just him. A lot of missing children.

Quick, someone post a pic of a milk carton with the "third party posting" message on the side.

Well I suppose I took a picture of something I did. I found a S14 throttle body for cheap on Ebay. Ordered that because:

Its much larger in diameter, and gets me a cruise control pulley...



Also, I made my first CNC program. Made a press fit oil drain for the back of the head. Goes to -10AN. That was fun.
