Hi folks, well, the title says it all, doesn't it I owned a Skyline R34 GTT, which sadly in a garage fire burned down. I didn't want another GTT and the GTR I think is too expensive and I always liked the S15 (altough I already owned a s14 kouki^^). But just to pose a bit more, the varietta seemed fine (if the weather in Germany pays off...) and the RB still was in good shape. So that quite mad idea popped into my mind Since everything is going to be changed anyway, I searched for a cheap Varietta, nothing special and this one popped up: It's a 2000 model with around 80.000km on the clock, SR20DE A/T. You can sense why it was cheap^^ Bonestock and those rims are killing everything 19 inch chromes on a stock s15... maaan Also the rear left window doesnt go down when dropping the roof... maybe motor killed or anything electrical. More about the chassis later... now for the engine: I gave it to a local tuning company (more specific a guy who owns a workshop) and he is just the SR and RB chief himself. I dont think my RB could be in better hands (atleast here in germany) that guy told me anything about the engines and I had no idea what he was talking about You should see his workshop. I've never seen so much SR, RB, CA engine blocks lying around ... Since the RB is going to put out about 500+ hp, I though I better let it be done by somebody who knows shit Some pictures from the build so far: opened and everything cleaned prepping the valves (all of them) He also did a pressure check on all valves after the preparation and crankshaft got a new collar, since that's apparantly a fault on the NEO engine. Speclist engine (so far) - Twinscroll BorgWarner S200SX turbo - ZEX (thats the tuner) Selfmade twinscroll manifold - Greddy-Style intake plenum - ZEX selfmade fuelrail - Bosch EV14 668ccm injectors - Bosch 044 fuel pump - new wiring RB25DET matching S15 - 90mm throttle body - ZEX selfmade intake and turbopiping - Cosworth cylinder head gasket - timing belt Tomei - 260° IN + EX Tomei poncams - watercooler Mishimoto X Line - Autobahn88 FMIC - oilcooler 25 rows - powersteering cooler 9 rows - knocksensor KS3 ZEX - aluminium pully kit - Z33 ZEX selfmade AFM - mapping ZEX - Nistune - few things like N1 waterpump, new camshaftsensor, generator fixed, new gasket set, etc. things that were harmed during the fire - Some purple paint Parts of the engine are gonna be sprayed in HKS-style purple, rest of it will be black, hope its gonna look dope More parts arriving/arrived: - TEIN StreetAdvance - Nismo lightened flywheel RB25 - ClutchMasters FX250 clutch (Singleplate) - AEM Uego - HKS EVC7 - Oilpressure, EGT gauges - Nismo engine mounts - Brakes out of the skyline - R34 subframe Todo: - cleaning engine bay + spraying in matte black or gray - getting SpecR diff from somewhere cancelled, can just use the diff from my R34 since I'm gonna swap the whole axle - M/T swap, pedals and stuff for conversion - stiffening up the chassis, I thought about some struts and stuff from ultraracing, cauz the convertible really needs a stiffer chassis when being attacked by 500+ HP - fixing the small window rear left sort of done - wheels obviously. I got the Rotas left from my Skyline, maybe I use those can't! They don't fit under the S15. I'll go concaves I guess - finally choosing a bodykit... thinking about the D1-GP from behrman with a lot of canards and stuff. Thoughts? or maybe I go rocketbunny Nope, nope. I'll go vertex ridge front with aero rear pods and diffusors and stuff. Think it'll look quite good - proper taillights, cleaning the headlamps - RECARO speeds - retrim the whole interior, thought of a black/white/carbon mixture with stitches and shit - rear seats out of it, putting in some struts (the Ultraracing struts I already ordered) - repaint whole car (preferably in BMW frozen matte blue, but not decided yet) - nismo speedo - working out the height of the RB25, since this is a problem with the stock engine mounts... maybe I go for a powerdome on the hood - resized propshaft I'm sure I missed out something^^ And if anyone can provide anything from the "Todo" part, feel free to contact me. For now the car is under a blanket at my home, as soon as the workshop I can go into, is free, the stripping starts If there are any questions go ahead or you want more pictures, ask. Aaaand sorry for my english. I'm from ze Germany Alex
