Turbo oil Drain is off getting welded. So spent some time doing some wiring.
Cat also arrived so Fabricator is here in one Month to do cooler pipework and exhaust.




Ok started on the Fan wiring.

The spal fans are 6amps - 7amps a piece and when I ordered kit i sized everything for 22amps as I was wiring them.
Then went with recommendation on wiring them independent of each other so everything is way over sized but look it wont melt...





Ill sleeve the cable and mount it properly next but loving the DTP connectors.

Not even close to perfect. But it wont burn my car down and doesn't look too bad.
Will need to re-purpose some wires on the MAP sensor plug but job done.

On to Plumbing in Fuel lines and coolant lines.
I also need to drain the fuel tank of whatever is in there and sort out Pump, Pump wiring, Reg, Pressure sensor.





mopped the floor after that.

Ok Starting to look like a car again.

Spent on a fab guy to make up quality intercooler pipework. He also mounted a new plazmaman intercooler which is a better job than the china unbranded core I had on it which was fine for a stock sr20.

So now need to knock up new clamps and flush out the pipes.
Unfortunately, he couldn't tackle the exhaust and I need to figure out that one.


Fits my I don't want it to stand out from a stock s14 (if I get the pipes painted black behind the bumper)








Sump ready to go in. Again overkill for a car that will do very little. Due to covid iv been waiting on that since August.
The current sump is dented a bit.





Bit of a struggle to keep the project moving. But its moving.

Who knew changing a sump would be a real pain.
Nissan RTV is tough stuff.

Then I couldn't get it to clear the pickup with sub-frame in.
-ARB off
-Tried jacking the engine from the Box for some wiggle room.
-Now lowered the sub-frame a little on the bolts with box jacked.




Will see how I go tonight but may need to lower the frame on a jack and support the engine and box.


May need to drop the rack and or frame ....

Its in.

Hand tight to cure for 24 hours. What a pig.

Got it my taking an engine mount out and jacking the gearbox up.
Hopefully the RTV didnt smudge too much and it seals. I wont get at it for another week now and bolt it up.

Had to shorten the turbo drain so that is out one more time as i confirmed the drain forward is an oil drain while sump was out.


Sump is done.. No more dents...
