Hi all . As most of you know the corsa has been returned to a more standard car and is now kept as a daily and I've now eventually got a 200sx! Most of this post is copy and pasted from SXOC so I'll try and pick and any bits out wich don't make sense but anyway I hope you enjoy .

I had wanted a S14a for a long while after having my Total Vauxhall featured corsa!






Which I then split a lot of the parts off of to fund the 200 and is now kept as a daily!

So after months of searching and being very picky I found one that I liked. Some May recognise it as I made the long trip up to Wakefield to collect the car from "Cheif" off of here . It was well worth the journey and I'm still so happy with it!

Here's a few photos I've managed to grab this evening .













Sorry about the image quality! Will hopefully grab some better ones soon! Here's a full spec list of the car.

Nissan 200sx S14a "1997"
Kuro Black (KH3)
56,000 miles
1 owner from new (I'm the second)

Engine :
369BHP (at the flywheel)
314bhp (at the wheels)
Garrett GT2871r (.86)
Apex Type 1 Manifold
Apex Cone Filter
Apex Turbo Elbow
Apex Decat
Apex Short Shifter
Z32 AFM
Z32 Fuel Filter
Nismo 740cc Injectors
Sard Fuel Pressure Regulator
Walbro Fuel pump
Blitz Intercooler
HKS Silent Hi Power Exhaust
Greddy Rocker Arm Stoppers
Tomei 270 Procams
Tomei 1.2mm MHG
Tomei Valve Springs
Cusco Catch Can
Nismo Engine and Gearbox Mounts
Mocal Oil Cooler and Sanwich Plate

Transmission :
Fidenza Lightened Flywheel
Act Organic Clutch

Suspension :
Tein Monoflex Coilovers
Whiteline Anti Roll Bars
Cusco Camber Arms
Apex Alignment Kit
Apex Strut Brace
Powerflex Subframe Bushes

Wheels and Tyres :
R33 GTR Wheels
Goodyear Eagle F1 Tyres

Brakes :
Nismo Front Brake Ducts
R33 GTR Brembo Front Calipers
DBS Series 4000 Discs (front)
Ferodo DS2500 Pads (front)
Brembo Discs (rear)
EBC Yellowstuff Pads (rear)

Electronics :
Apexi Power FC
Apexi AVCR Boost Controller
Racelogic Traction Control

So as you can see the car really did come with a nice spec and as you can imagine it's quite a difference coming from a 1.4 90bhp corsa!!

Since I've had the car Ive fitted my OMP Corsica 350mm Smooth Leather Steering Wheel wich I had in my corsa along with a new OMP Boss (drilled for indicator cancel) and D1 Spec Quick Release! Aswell as a AEM Digital Boost Gauge!




I've also fitted a set of 6k HID's along with Osram Nightbreakers, SMD sidelights and Numberplate lights in a bid to try and modernise the car as it felt/looked slightly dated IMO.

I'm also very keen with Detailing so I've slowly been getting the car up to a reasonable standard. It's not 100% yet as I've haven't had a chance to get the Machine polisher out but it's getting there!

I have a lot of plans and ideas but my immediate plan is to source new wheels (probably some form of rotas) and also get my private plate swapped over!

I'll probably edit this post as there's more than likely stuff I've missed to add in but hope you guys enjoy!

Looks good Nath. First things I was going to suggest were number plates and wheels but it seems like you've got that covered!

Like I said on fbook, very nice, always wanted one myself so very jealous

Although they will do for the minute, the wheels need ditching

Nibnob21 cheers mate. Yeah they'll be the first major purchases .

Thanks Gav, yes the power is very nice!

Steve . Cheers pal! Yes there not the nicest looking I know. But they have good tyres and the alignment set up is spot on ATM so it handles really well .

Chris, never bothered me tbh. It was always going to get ruined

Taylorboosh. Thanks appreciate it . Haha I've a long way to go before I'm up to his standard!

Flaffy . Yeah thought I'd better do it . Cheers, can't wait to buy more parts haha.

I carried on with cleaning the car up today. Took the front bumper off and cleaned up the Intercooler and pipe work, all the arch plastics and anything else I could get too.







However whilst I was cleaning I noticed this little mistake by whoever fitted the bumper last!!



Yes last time the bumper was fitted by who ever done it, they've mounted it into the cold side FMIC pipe work!! And it looks like they've had a few goes at it too lol. There's a few marks in the same sort of area on the hot side too but no actual holes! Going to whip it off soon and have it welded up .

Taylorboosh I know it's ridiculous, I mean I guess it's an easy mistake as the part where the bumper mounts is right beneath that pipe but you can clearly see that it must be close . Not a problem though I'll have it fixed soon! Oh and with regards to the plate im waiting until I get my private plate swapped on and I'll get a square one made for the front. Running plateless would be ideal but can't be bothered with unwanted attention from the police!

Cheers Daz! Yeah I'm so happy with it and it does go pretty well .

Had the rear bumper off today to have a look what it's like on the rear panel. Was pleasantly surprised . Few pictures after a quick clean down!





Couple small surface patches like this.



But nothing to complain about! Once it's off the road over winter I'll sort it then!

Don't see many 14a's like this anymore!
