Haha these are my street wheels. The tires are 225's. My other rims that started off as everyday rims are 15x8 0 offset .

Nice dig up Mcshagger. It has come along way and has been a great learning experience.

The one thing I don't ubnderstand is why Mario took an S14 valve cover, chopped off the front of it and welded in an S13 front section when the original S13 valve cover would have been just fine. Can anyone explain this?

Well, I can tell you this, that 510 has all Mario components and as we know Mario's work/parts are very very expensive aside from the quality it's pricey. So I'd say for his asking price though it does say negotiable, ugly body and paint rust ect; he's looking to recover his investment. Can't fault the guy for trying. But I'm still wondering why he'd pay Mario $$$$$$ to chop up two valve covers to make one when one of the chopped up covers being original would have been just fine, I mean talk about a waste of money, unless there something in the valve train requiring the S14 hump but I doubt it.

The S14/S15 valve cover has an internal baffling system were as the S13 does not. It is said that this conversion limits the amont of oil that gets into the catch can.
