Keep everyone up to date with how your project is coming along.
Thought I'd start a bit of a build thread on the Racecar.
I've been tinkering with Hondas for a few years so I was pretty comfortable with most mechanical jobs and basic diagnostics, but I have zero exposure to Nissan. Absolutely in the dark with them. So it was a great idea to jump into my first full racecar build with this!
It's a 1993 non-GTi shell.
Full FIA spec cage, seat & harness.
BC Racing Coilovers.
Front strut brace.
GTi-R Front brake setup, on EBC Yellow Pads.
The running gear was transplanted from a 1995 N14 GTi, which is the SR20DE non-vvti (143).
Mechanically it's standard apart from a cold air feed, aftermarket exhaust manifold, into a straight 70mm center section, to a DTM style muffler.
Fuel pump has been upgraded to a 255lph walbro unit. Everything else downstream in the fuel system is standard.
Engine management is the responsibility of the factory ECU, but i've wired up a V1.0 Apexi Neo for additional fuel control. Quite a crude setup for today's standard but it's something.
Future plans are as follows:
Swapping to the S13/14 SR20DET rail and injectors as a factory upgrade. AFAIK it's a straight swap as they're both a side feed setup.
AEM AFR Gauge. I plan to use this as reference while steady state tuning with the Neo when I get out on track.
When funds allow, EMU/ADU combo to get some real tuning done and log some data.
For those wondering, the livery is a replica of the 1997 BTCC RML Primera.
