EXHAUST New T28 turbocharger Stainless tubular header wrapped in heat proof material Stainless down pipe Stainless exit pipe Stainless laminar flow silencer filled with stainless wool Full system is stainless steel and 3" bore straight through Thrush heat shield with polished aluminium exhaust tip INTAKE Apexi power intake air filter Toyota Celica charge cooler system which is a water/air intercooler (much more efficient) Devils Own water/meth injection system which is progressive and programmable CHASSIS Chassis is from the Haynes book "Build yourself a sports car by Chris Gibbs" It is a strengthened chassis with key points having extra support including an extra diagonal member in the engine bay sides. It also has a 3mm Aluminium floor, again provides excellent rigidity Painted in a gloss 2 pack light grey SUSPENSION Again it is by the book but the main components were custom built by myself to look much better than the standard build, this included nickel plating the ends of the suspension arms for extra corrosion protection All polybushed Protech adjustable shock absorbers all around 350lb springs on the front and 250lb springs on the rear. BRAKES Brakes are standard sierra items with all major parts renewed vented discs up front drums on the rear All brake lines are braided stainless steel with translucent red covering made by Exact which are a susiduaryof HEL Rear brake cylinders were new and front calipers were bought professionally refurbished.

It is still in original condition of gelcoat in Traffic Red and Jet Black Front cycle wing mounts are made from 1/4" stainless steel and do not "bounce" like other 7's Laser cut stainless steel " Roadster emblem " and honeycomb grill FUEL TANK Tank was made by myself out of 3mm aluminium all tig welded, has a capacity of 8.5 gallons which is much bigger than the book tank at the expence of "boot" space, but at least this means you are not going to be constantly looking to where the next fill up will be has 3 internal baffles and a surge pot fuel pump is a Walbro 255ltm COOLING This car has 4 radiators at the front 2 cores for engine cooling 1 core for charge cooling and an oil cooler too which is fitted with stainless braided pipes, running higher boost obviously increases engine temps but these are kept well in check and engine rarely gets above 80°c Engine is tuned to Stage 2 using the following (this was copied and pasted from Turbonoz's website) and is what I did to everything to match the chip. Stage 2 ECU chip for the 1.8L 16V turbocharged CA18DET engine as fitted to the Nissan 200SX / Silvia / 180SX S13 models. This comes complete with a socket for the chip, which is required for fitment. This ECU EPROM chip is designed to work with the standard 370cc injectors, and original air flow meter (MAF / AFM) and will produce 260-280 BHP depending on specification & condition of the engine etc. Features: Uprated fuel & timing maps Factory-standard boost cut removed Speed limit removed Rev limit increase to 7500 RPM EPROM socket included - Required for installation The following modifications are recommended: Free flow air filter Free flow exhaust Uprated fuel pump (eg. Walbro or Bosch) Uprated intercooler T28 turbocharger from a Nissan 200SX S14 / S14a Suitable boost controller for 15 psi (Manual Boost Controllers available separately) Super unleaded fuel (97 RON or higher) In addition to this was the Water/Methanol injection which helps to keep the induction charge cooled further and reduces the chances of detonation occurring, The make is Devils Own and is progressive and has a programmable psi setting for when it comes in and maxes out at 100% Main Instrument in the binnacle is a Defi ZD Advance which has many features for monitoring coolant temp, oil temp, oil pressure, oil temp, speedo, rpm, shift lights exhaust temp, fuel pressure fuel ratio, boost, it is a copy but it does monitor all those parameters the only ones connected at the moment are speed and rpm as that was all I needed. Apart from the major long suspension bolts nearly all fasteners are of Stainless steel and rivets are sealed countersunk. Side mirrors have led indicators built in both forward facing and inside the mirror itself Headlights are 4.5" dominators with added Halo led's as daytime driving lights. Custom one off cnc'd horn push see photo Seats are adjustable Corbeau items in matching red and black and are very comfortable in use and matching 4 point harnesses ..Rear upper seat belt mounts are unique in that they are inset into the roll bar with stainless grub screws and are threadlocked in.
