Hey all, A few of you may know me, but some may not... I'm Jack, I've been into imports for a few years now. When i started looking for my first import i was looking all over for an s13 or onevia. I ended up buying an r32 gtst because i just wanted a car fast and i wanted to start learning how to drift. Been drifting for 3 or so years now and the car got out of hand very quickly. Its sporting a heap of mods, and is a full track car now. I love the car to pieces, however being a track only drift car i have no import to drive on the street anymore. I figured, the whole point of owning a car is to drive it around, but because i no longer have a jap car on the street its pretty depressing i have to drive my commodore ute around. As much as its a good daily, i get zero enjoyment out of it and its not who i am. Sooooo... That has bought me to this new project. I bought this s13 off a mate the other week. it has a large range of mods and i got it at a reasonable price due to it being unregistered. He had owned the car for a few years, but wasnt massively into cars. It came to an abrupt hault when he got defected for too low after just installing brand new bc coilovers... Due to his lack of motivation for the car to be on the road and going overseas and stuff, the car sat in storage for almost a year. So i picked it up the other week, and drove it to my garage where i work on my cars. Below ive posted a current mod list, it has lots of goodies which was almost too much for me, but it will be good in the long run.

A lot of people are against street cars now due to our harsh road rules and laws, but this car will only be a weekender. The look i am going for is an oldschool usdm inspired onevia. For those that dont know, it will basically have the roof racks, lowish, balloon tires on 15's, front lip, etc, but i want to keep it simple and old. If any of you are like me, as soon as i had the idea of buying the car in my head i just went crazy(cray cray) and started buying stuff, before i had even put a deposit on the car. hahah The beginning: The first thing i began to to with the car was take off all the parts i didnt want... This consisted of s15 front seats weathershields Weds wheels FMIC BOV POD s13 front end carbon boot I sold the parts and started looking for replacements for them all to suit my style/needs. Parts aquired so far: So i set off looking on Yahoo Japan for wheels first, cos lets be honest wheels make a car and it would be a good start to the build seeing as tho the car currently had poor offset and sized wed's wheels. I found some SSR MKII in 15x7.5+6 and 15x8+13 which i quite liked, so i contacted Jesse streeter and we got the ball rolling. i ended up winning the wheels for abit less than i thought they wre going to go for. Which is always a good thing. So they are on the way over from Japland now. I got a ripper deal on a whole 180 front from a guy up in the hills, who was parting a whole 180 for a track car, he gave me all the panels, lights, fuseboxes, looms, etc which i needed for the conversion. I am still yet to put it on because there are a few things i need to fix first. I got an r32 gtr sway bar off my cousin for the rear to stiffen that up abit. Pignose front bar and ca front lip, both genuine. Apexi turnflow FMIC standard air box R32 gtst front seats Nismo aero skirts for s13 Standard mirrors GK tech radiator overflow bottle GK tech radiator shroud Also currently have a mate over in the us who may "aquire" some californian plates for me... could be a good little touch to the car at the end. i attached some pics of the car as i bought it, and the wheels, new fmic, and what i hope it will turn out like. Parts still needed: Origin roof spoiler jdm square fog lights for inside the front bar Tires for the ssr's Thule Roof racks with a custom wind fairing Change front brakes back to standard sr to clear the wheels. Will keep updating as i go. Hope you enjoy the build as much as i hope to. Jack.
