Still some aggressive offset on those front wheels--phew!!!

Didn't know you were planning such big changes for it. Cool that it will now become yours rather than always being known as _____'s old car.

Good luck w/ the progress.

Well... I originally wanted to build a KA-T but now that I have 2 240's I am going to build this one for off road purposes, and the other will be my daily driver. Once i am completely satisfied with the s14 I will start building the ka24de-t for the s13. It needs a ton of love, suspension and body work itself.

So I am putting in a redtop SR with 55k on it, never street driven, has only done 4 drift events. Previous history of the motor was it belonged to a shop car that was just on display. Motor runs stout, no CEL lights, no idle problems, pulls like a supercharged car on steriods although i've never driven an sr'ed 240 before. I cannot wait for the upgrades I have planned.

gt3076r, full race manifold, and a haltech stand alone reading out to a stack cluster as I hate unnecessary gauges.

But I would like to just focus on the bodywork alone as it's already tedious enough and expensive.

Looking good although I don't know what you were doing wrong, but you do NOT have to unbolt any suspension pieces to get the motor mounts off... I've never used solid mounts and an SR but don't see how that would change things. It just takes an end wrench IIRC.

fucking deathtrap man, i'm amazed at how much is/was wrong with your car now that you are pulling it apart.


Yeah, you only find these things out when you take cars apart like this, at least there is no rust on either cars. (except where the intercooling piping holes were made and not treated.

I want to get it done in december. I am going to try and get the windows removed this week so I can start drilling out the spot welds. But I need to make room in my garage for all of this shit!

Very cool. I love the Volks. What are you going to use it for? Drift or Grip? Or maybe just to make A to B as fun as possible?
