Ok so I figured it was about that time to start a build thread. I have enough pic’s to keep the thread going for awhile so here we go.
I grabbed a 5spd 4gen from a local member for $500.00 with a stillen exhaust, sts, popcharger, alpine radio and upgraded shocks and struts. My plan was to use it as a daily as gas is high and my current daily was a Armada which sucks.
Hard to think no one bought this for 500 bucks, WTF is happening to the Maxima game.
Cut out the rust and boxed it back it
Time to start modding the front motor mount to clear the downpipe and semi-lock it out.
Filled it with window weld
Cut out a template for my semi lockout mod while waiting for the poly to dry
OK now to transfer this to metal
OK now for the good stuff
Ok so I don’t have a turbo yet and need to keep this project moving and the car driving to save gas. So I made a turbo bop so I can mount the hotside and still drive the car
I am currently driving the car with the turbo bop and hotside install. Next up is to install the coldside while I’m waiting for my turbo in the mail. My goal is to save the foglights so I cut a hole in the rad support and ran the lower intercooler pipe through it.
Ran into a problem didn’t know the foglight brackets bolt to the bumper support. Got to figure this out
The stock drivers seat had a tear in the leather and I couldn’t find a decent replacement for less than 100 bucks. So I got a pair of these with sliders for 258shipped
New gauge pod with a wb02 and vac/boost gauge
Went to a dyno meet the following day and made 300hp on 7psi with the spark blowing out
