Image
1st thing to go was my loud ass ricey exhuast system! i picked up a full cat back magnaflow exhuast system. stock cat, magnaflow resenator, and magnaflow stainless steel muffler.
Image

the same day my tien tie rods were installed by gary the snail :wink: thanks bud!

next i decided im going to change my valve cover. i went with blk and red. stripped of all the old paint
Image
cleaned it up a bit
Image
added the 1st coat of blk
Image
then went thru hours of masking and tapping off sections
Image
then added the red coat
Image
then begin peeling everything off(took forever btw) and came out with this
Image
comparison
Image
installed
Image

next came my CF hood that is light as a feather!
Image
Image
and just for neatness
Image :P

so it drove good and i decided its time to upgrade it a bit. I went and got steves tune(iceman) to open up my sohc a bit :D thanks steve! i would say this is a must have for any ka! improves throttle respones greatly and u deff feel the difference. rev limit before was at like 5600 stock for me but with the ecu tune it went up 2 like 7400! :D
alternator started going out so bryan came thru again installed the quest alternator. works great!
finaly the 1st drift event of the season was here and i was stoked! :P i decided to take my 240 to the event just to see wat it was like. i was sooo close!!! my transmission crapped out 10 min outside of town. Me and my friend spent the whole day trying to get to the event and travel back an forth from topeka to op. 200 dollars later my 240 was back at my apt :cry: with a broken tranny. i thought my clutch went bad bc it had a terrible grind to it. turns out the tranny was shot! :(
so with a little help from quentiles and a friend eric i was able to get a rebuilt tranny from bryan again
Image
got a few extra goodies while i had the tranny apart
Image
nismo mounts
Image
F1 racing flywheel(for those who dont like ebay brands stuff this is a good light weight flywheel)
Image
exedy stage 1 clutch disk and pressure plate
Image
Image
alluminum 1 piece drive shaft thanks to mr berry! :D
Image
and the other essentials to changing a tranny.
Image
this would be the old one
Image
and the tranny drain plug
Image
look at those shavings!!!! 8O
finaly after hours of sweat and work it was up and running again! :cry: tears of joy!
i then decided i wanted coilovers bad! i gave up the blk hatch that a picked up for dirt cheap and traded it for these cusco set
Image
i took wat i needed of the car before sending it off then never seen it again! :( it was a good dd!
coils finaly went one with a bit of help from a friend
Image
Image
Image
btw some pulled a hit and run on my 240
Image
so i pulled of the pignose off the blk hatch
Image
Image

thats all for now cause its late but i do have big plans for this sohc of mine so all leave u with this for 2night :D

Showing people what you do to your car can earn you respect. Make it to an event, earn even more.

Wish I had bought that Driveshaft.

I'm enjoying all this KA-T love I'm seeing around here lately! Do you know any more about the turbo besides it being a T3? It looks like it has "Nissan" cast in the compressor cover.

idk how come the intake says nissan. i cant find anything that this turbo was used on any nissan. my only thought was a z31 like 86 model year.

here are the spec's i found on the turbo
Specs:
-Model: Garrett/Airesearch TB0363 (T3 Series)
-OE Part #: 466672-2
-Wastegate setting: ~7 psi
-Compressor Trim: 50
-Turbine Trim: 69
-Compressor Housing a/r: .42
-Turbine Housing a/r: .48
-Oil and Water Cooled
-Recommended applications: 150-275hp, 1.5L-2.2L

its internaly wastegated but its missing off my turbo for some reason :(
also is water cooled and oil cooled.
if anybody can help me find more info id appriciate it. :D

I was trying to think of which Nissan's came with a T3. T2 is mega popular but not T3. It may very well be one off an old Z.

yeah. my friend had a z31 and it came with a t3 turbo. i looked at it under the car once and it was a little guy but it was a t3. they where tuned on 6.8 lbs of boost from the factory. a while back i did some research and found out that the z31 between the years of like 84-86 they used a t3 on the vg30et. then 87+ they used a t2. so that wat makes me believe it came off a z31 plus the nissan logo on the intake housing. wich actualy works out for me cause well.... i have a nissan! haha :p
