Rocker arm stopper install

The Build

I suspected my valve cover to be leaking so I ordered a new gasket and thought might as well install some rocker arm stoppers. Went with Tomei just because.

Made a outline of where each nut and bolt came from.

That’s a pretty shotty looking heat shield.

The instructions told me to get rid of this baffle plate for s13 sr20s.

Took me awhile to put them in but it was my first rodeo.

Put the new gaskets on the valve cover and wiped up whatever gunk I could. Kinda miss working at Nissan because I coulda used their parts washer around this time.

But yeah buttoned up everything and torqued it to spec. Little closer to driving it again.

The dashboard melted but we still have the radio

The Build

Finally swapped out dashboards in the s13. Bought a uncracked dash off Craigslist’s back in 2014 before I even had the car ha. Yesterday decided to just do it, turned out to not be as difficult as I perceived. I’ve been slacking on getting shit done to it so I guess this helps get the ball rolling? Thanks to Dylan for coming thru and talking story while I did all the work lol nah he helped me angle in the new dash.

new used dash

Even riveted my vin plate to the new dash so I was stoked.

thanks for stopping by

Kaaz 2 way differential installed´╗┐

The Build

Bought a used 2 way from my friend that I worked with back at Nissan. Installed it at after work. Side job saturdays!

It came out of his s14 so I had to put my s13 cover on. And the s14 cover went on my open diff so he could prolly get it welded later on.

Forgot to take a pic of the cover before I spent like a hour scraping off the old gasket and cleaning it with the parts washer.

Casey in the back doing his brakes on his g35 and I don’t know what Bryson’s doing lol

But yeah I did this January 21 2017 so it’s been about a year late that I’m posting this lol. It’s in though and does sick cookers!

Thanks for reading<3

240SX Update 12/12/16

The Build

Bought the bottom half of some rear seats and a dash cover lol. Couldn’t get the other half for your back because one of the release hooks where broken off.


I don’t know what the bottom seat material is called but it’s the same as S14 seats and it’s a lot softer than the regular tweed like the one above it. 




Looks pretty whack lol I’ll just wait for some other rear seats to pop up and then I’ll scoop those.

Bought the dash cover just because. Not sure if I like the look or not.

I rarely post on here so I just wanted to show what I recently picked up. Thanks for reading!

Turn signal lever replacement S13

The Build

My headlights wouldn’t flip down so I bought this from the dealership I work at. Looked online and read that the leads/contact points on these things get burnt out or corroded or something that doesn’t make a good connection anymore. I was unsure if replacing this would fix it but luckily it did.

Heres the part number if anyone needs it.


Pretty simple to install. Just remove the steering column trim and then it’s just one plug and a couple screws (forgot how many there were) holding it in.

Lol look at the difference compared to the wiper lever.
