Nismo steering rack bushings installed

The Build

Jessie dropped by to help me installed my bushings. Highly recommend having another person with a pry bar to lift the rack while you finesse the bushings in n out.

Surprisingly took about 40 min to button everything up and torqued.

Bushings looked alright for 203,xxx miles.

Waiting on some other stuff to come in so I can drive the car again. Stay tuned and thanks for reading.

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
