    Ry's Kouki

    Current status :







    Never really thought about making a thread... I never saw mine as being big spec or overly sexy and clean. But hey ho here it goes ...

    I have had the car around a year / 11 months, tried not to spend too much on it as I just wanted to get used to it. It's my second car, first was a 1999 1.3 push rod fiesta.. this was a bit of a jump up the ladder After around 2 weeks, I decided I wanted to enter the world of "Spendallmywagesoncarparts" haha here's a current spec list and pics to follow

    2000 s14a Touring
    Manual SR20DET Bent cam I believe ? (Black top)
    81k on the clock when I purchased it (Now around 89 I think)
    Full stainless steel mani back japspeed exhaust
    Uprated Hybrid 360 Bearings and refurb'd Garrett T28
    18" Asuka Alloys (were on the car when I bought it.. I kinda like em lol)
    Japspeed FMIC
    Apex 30mm Lowering springs I know I need coilovers asap
    Braided Turbo lines
    SARD R2D2 VTA bov
    Apexi Induction kit
    Cusco front strut brace rear strut brace unbranded
    Full set of GReddy white dial faced 60mm gauges
    GReddy ATT
    Mtec/Mintex Front and rear brake pads and disks
    Walbro 255
    NGK Iridium bkr7eix or something plugs lol

    I'm pretty sure that's it... I'll attempt to link pictures from PB now

    Sound system was TERRIBLE .. Found out pretty much all the speakers were fooked So I upgraded to Focals all round

    Then treated the bay to some more red bits and a lockwood white dial kit

    I'm a fiend for Carbon Fibre





    Walbro was next

    Tried something different out...

    Didn't like it so I went back to black lol, Thanks to redlinezak for fitting the Focals all round..

    Then bad news strikes... Smoke on hot idle - Turbo seals = f**ked but I threw some more cash at it and eh voila :



    New washers seals gaskets.. the whole nine





    Thankfully the whole lot came off easy as pie.. I'm guessing it's been off before. Massive thanks to the cuz ajmalins





    Out with the old n in with the new

    perfect excuse for new parts



    As soon as Sam (Mclean) Put this up.. I snapped it very rare Autech grill from the silvia import? Only other ones I have seen are the C.F ones from epr..

    Whilst waiting for it to be sprayed something came in the post

    Test fit... sat nice

    Thanks to the big cuz once again.. this time it was new holes in the boot lid for the new r34 gtr wing

    Dare I say it?? I kind of liked the sleek smooth look without a spoiler for a mo or two ...

    Something I always thought about the 14a's is that the touring has a high rear... No rear spats but they have side skirts and a front splitter.. so I decided to give it a nice fat ass



    Bumper in bodyshop.. another present arrives

    When dropping off the car I saw my next car was conveniently parked next to me... I wish lol
