  2. Regretfully selling my 1990 Nissan S13 Silvia as I'm moving overseas. This is the K's model with all optional extras and some light modification. This is a manual CA18DET model with 150,000km on the clock with motor still running strong. Rego until Aug 2014, but selling without RWC (won't be hard, had RWC approved 12 months ago) Factory features: ABS, LSD, Sunroof, Leather seats (I have never seen these on another S13 before), Glove compartment cooler box (another rare extra), WORKING airconditioning (omg!!), Remote central locking with alarm. Mods (off the top of my head): T28 turbo Bleed valve K&N air filter Front-mount intercooler Performance coil pack 3 inch catback exhaust Bosch 040 fuel pump with Z32 fuel filter Tein Super Street Coilovers front and rear with cambertops 17 inch Advanti Racing wheels (not sure of the specs.. 17x6 maybe?) SAAS boost and oil pressure guages (not installed) Also selling with some other bits and pieces including a second boot lid with stock spoiler and 3rd breaklight (to pass RWC) This isn't the cleanest S13 you'll ever see, but it's a damn good car throughout. It has some great features that are rare, as well as some good, tasteful mods already on to get you started. I had so many plans for this car that I'm unable to follow through with because I'm moving to Japan and unable to keep it sitting around for years. With the right care, this car will without a doubt hold it's value or even increase in value as more S13s are stripped and thrashed into track cars or wrapped around poles. Asking $6,000 ono. Low-ballers will be ignored. Reasonable offers will be considered. Located in St Kilda. Come check it out, and no time wasters as this will definitely sell. Call me or text 0-4-3-0- 0-2-6- 6-0-3

  6. Picked this up on the weekend for the track car, apparently approx 150ks and removed as a "runner", toying with the idea of attempting the rebuild myself - which I've never done but always really wanted to try. I've got a basic workshop, most tools, have done turbo/head/manfiold swaps and have over a decade experience with Nissan platforms etc etc so I have half an idea. Standard rods don't like going past 220 or so rwkw apparently and as my current motor is an original bottom end with some basic bolt ons I wanted something fresh anyway. Parts list will look something like this. Spool forged kit which has rods, bearings, pistons, rings, pins, metal head gasket etc. Headstuds New gaskets and hoses throughout. New oil and water pumps, timing belt, idler tensioner. Some tomei 256 cams I have sitting in a box brand new. Either new OEM or basic upgrade valve springs and some new lifters (lifters needed?) New balancer. Mild porting/port matching, nothing crazy, remove butterflies and possibly relocate injector ports. A GTX2860R I have sitting here which is new, could swap for 63 or 67? A little Tiual 38mm external gate. E85 Use my existing Nistune. Re-use existing oil cooler/intercooler/radiator fuel setup etc. I would want the basic bottom end balancing done, but once the initial weigh/measure/balance is done and you install the rotating assembly can you/should you then have it balanced as a short block? I've seen people do this with clutch attached also which seems odd, given the clutch could die tomorrow and be different. Same for the head, the guy I would have do some porting could likely do the valves/springs and clearances while he's there. leaving me cams/fit head to block which I'm OK with. With the 2860, I can't see it making more than 230-240rwkw, which is fine given I have no big plans for new gearsets or box swaps. 63 and 67 would go a little further but run the risk of hurting the box sooner - Box which is just a stocker with a nice clutch and fluid and no present issues. The alternative is I break the motor down, get all the parts, then deliver it all ready for assembly to my mechanic and collect assembled short block, an assembly head from the head guy, and do the final assembly and swap myself. I know it's not a "simple" task, but for those who have DIY'd a rebuild, would you do it again? What caught you out, anything else to throw in?
  7. CA18DET Rebuild or engine swap? Hi All, Recently my current CA18DET just blew up (cracked piston rings) and overheated. Ive got a spare engine lying around with unconfirmed kms (obtained from a previous purchase). My question is what would be the best path for just getting the car going again (and reliably). Should I refurbish the engine back to OEM? or just bolt her up with a new head gasket? Also, if anyone knows who is decent with CA's in Brissy, let me know. Cheers
