It’s been a long 9 months of work on the S14. As of a few weeks ago, the AEM is tuned and produced 507 wheel horsepower uncorrected. Wednesday night, widebody/aero were mounted, finishing up with an alignment on Thursday. The entirety of this project has been a team effort. Thanks to everyone who helped me along they way from wrench time to full on fabrication. Here are a few photos to display the finished car/engine.

Completed Engine Bay

Gauge Cluster

Aero! Minus the backordered front bumper x__X

All for now. Myself and a bunch of other CF are headed to Nashville, Tennessee for Import Alliance this weekend. I’m excited about my first event of the year and finally driving the Super Speedway roadcourse!

At it again with more progress on the engine swap. Spring Break 2011, YEAH!

Blah, blah, here are some photographs.

Getting there.

Spring Break is over and I didn’t get a tan x__x. Back to school for another 5 weeks. Driving back from school and stopping in Chicago to pick up all my new aero pieces xD. From then, it’s an all out work on the car and get this thing running.

So long for now,

Back again, with an update on the progress of the car. I came home over President’s Day weekend; a bunch of us got together and did work!

Assembled the new subframe for the car before installation.

Top Feed Rail, 680cc Injectors

Ready for installation. ACT Clutch, 3,200lb Pressure Plate.

After some struggling, everything finally lined up. Excep the transmission mount x__X

Getting closer! Need to finish plugging in the wiring harness, make sounds grounds, wire up the starter, and plumb the fuel system and it all should be set for a start-up!

Thanks to all that helped. Special thanks to Andrey as well for our marathon session on Sunday!

More update in a couple weeks for spring break.
