    Default My 4dr B13 Project

    I owned a couple B13s a while back and decided that I wanted a project car. The story line:

    This used to be my DD; Carb GA16DS (yes GA16DS not GA16DE, go do your research) 5spd (damn I miss her )


    Then I put her under the knife because she was rusted really badly. I dropped the engine in preparation for my SR20DE Swap




    The only reason I could afford to put my DD under the knife was because I acquired another B13. This one was a wreck BUT it only had front damage, the rest of the car was in immaculate condition.


    The carnage


    Now I call this "the merge"





    Even got some fender braces made to strengthen the front



    Took her to the bodyshop to get touched up and this was the result




    Fitted some Versa/Tiida wheels and was satisfied with the look


    Final product

    Now I wanted some rare items and couldn't find then individually so I had to buy a whole damn car to get them.

    I acquired a Pulsar Gti-R RNN14 rolling chassis for my donor.




    Some of you may ask, why didn't you just use the Pulsar? NO!!! The Pulsar is a lot heavier than a B13 and its more difficult to source parts for. I took the whole interior, suspension & brakes and a few other components that remained in the engine bay. Here are a few pics of what I took.






    I have the body sorted out but I need a power plant :biggrin:, I got an SR20DE RR 10:1 from a 98 EUDM Primera complete with tranny, harness and ecu.




    I busted her down to get her cleaned up and started the long and costly journey of purchasing parts.

    Now, I'm big on suspension so over the years I've acquired quite a bit of suspension pieces

    OEM Suspension pieces












    Floor Brace


    KYB shock boots and bump stops

    KYB GR2s

    KYB had strut mounts too so I said, what the heck, these must be better than the OEM ones.



    Road Magnet Springs


    Energy Suspension and Prothane Pieces







    Dog Bone Mount


    Progress Rear Sway Bar


    Suspension Techniques Front Sway Bar



    Cusco LCAB


    Cusco FSTB and eBay RSTB


    The car was not originally rear disc so I had to do the conversion



    Wilwood Brake Fittings

    Russell Brake Fittings


    Camber Bolts


    Aluminium X-member Bushings


    Aluminium Subframe Bushings


    Megan Racing Steering Ends


    Added some rotors and this is how she sits now

    This post is about my engine rebuild

    I a stickler for doing things the right way so I spared nothing when it came to buying components for my engine rebuild.

    SE-R Motor Mounts for SR20 Swap


    The plan was originally to turbo the car so I bought VET rods and pistons




    and I bought a used TD05HA-152G6-12T from an Evo X; owner upgraded his turbo.




    The block and head were in good condition but I decided that they needed Kariba's touch.

    I started porting the RR head



    Then I thought, if you're going to be putting the engine through the rigours it needs to be built tough, not Ford tough, Kariba Tough.
    OEM Gasket kit with OEM Chain, OEM Tensioner, Thermal Spacer, SR20VE Metal Head Gasket, Cometic Front & Rear seals

    OEM Cam Gears

    OEM Seals

    OEM Thrust Washers

    SR20VE Front Cover Assembly


    OEM Crank Gear

    VVL Pickup Tube

    G Spec Aluminium Pulley

    ACL Bearings; I have ACL Thrust Washers as well but just can't seem to find the damn pic


    ARP Bolts


    ARP Flywheel Bolts


    Clutch Kit



    Cooling
    Mishimoto Radiator hoses

    NX2000 Dual Core Radiator


    Water Temp Sensor Adapter

    OEM Coolant Temperature Sensor


    OEM Valve Cover Bolts and Washers



    Fuel System
    Aeromotive



    OEM Injector Harness


    Fuel Rail Bolt Kit


    SR20VE Distributor


    Magnecor Plug Leads



    OEM TPS


    OEM Knock Sensor


    Fuel Cooler


    Oil Cooler


    Nissport Fitting


    There may be a few other things I forgot which I'll add in later but the build starts.
    8CW RR Crank with SR20VET Rods & Pistons and Girdle.




    The block is already tapped just not pictured in any of the angle shots.

    I had a revelation and I decided to ditch the Turbo setup and go ALL MOTOR.

    So I got this.....SR20VE Head fitted with N1 Cams


    and give its Kariba's Touch as well.
    Intake. As you can see, I already had the head tapped with my -4AN anodized blue fitting.

    Exhaust


    SSAC Headers



    SuperTech Valve Springs and Retainers


    I had originally bought the Greddy E-manage so I'll chip my ECU and use the E-manage to fine tune.

    Got the Jumper Harness so that I don't have to hack my harness.

    You also need the A/F Harness for the E-manage to record your A/F ratios; this is why most people claim that it doesn't work or you can't tune accurately.


    N62 MAF; I won't be using this soon because I already ordered the Greddy 3BAR MAP sensor.


    Nismo CAI


    Glow Shift Gauges and AEM Wideband


    MSD Blaster Coil


    Nismo Radiator Cap, Nismo Oil Filler Cap and -6AN Autobahn88 Fuel Rail Adapter Fitting


    Dry Cell Battery

    Thanks @Latino Heat & @LAM-PARK.

    I actually added a few more pics to my posts. I've done extensive research and have been collecting parts for quite a few years. The knowledge gained and continue to gain is priceless. There are so many things we can do with these engines and so many components we can use if we only did a little more research.

    Very cool. That's the pulsar dash, harness, etc? This may tempt me to find a front clip here in the states to do a rhd car.

    Its the original dash in the car, along with under-dash harness. What I changed was the engine harness which is from the P11 (since I got the engine out of that car) & the engine bay accessory harness (for the headlights, fuse box, etc); the engine bay accessory harness came from the Pulsar.

    Update:

    In the pic below you can see two sets of pistons; the ones on the left are the SR20VET pistons and on the right SR20VE 20v pistons and SR20VET rods; I was initially planning for a turbo build before hence the SR20VET rods & pistons. You might ask why this combination right? The SR20VET rods are a bit thicker therefore will be able to handle detonation better and I wanted compression that was "pump gas friendly" so I opted for the 20v pistons rather than the SR16VE; that should be a safe enough combo for a street car.


    We removed the crank to have it balanced then will rebuild the bottom end.
