Re: Spriso's SR20DET Bluebird Coupe Project

Where the Rust Hides I spent this afternoon working on the car, exposing the problem areas that I knew I would have to deal with. The rocker panels had a lot of evidence of rust from the outside, and since this car is going to be acid dipped in a few weeks, I decided to open up all the problem area...

I suspect that is to drive some sort of rally computer like a Halda Twinmaster, but have never seen a setup like this before.

Re: Spriso's SR20DET Bluebird Coupe Project

And down the rabbit hole we go... I was all set to just paint the engine compartment, put the car back together and drive it, warts and all. But that nagging little devil on my shoulder kept saying that I would never tear the car back apart to fix it right if I did that-- and then Eric Straw said t...

Re: Sr20det catch can setup

The S13.5 valve cover mod gets rid of the ugly catch can on S13 SR20DET engines by using the back half of a S14 SR20DET valve cover with the front half of a S13 SR20DET valve cover welded to the front-- a great article on this can be found here: http://tougefactory.com/shop/2014/12/service-s13-4-sr-...
