UPDATE!!!!!!


Surge tank in and going. Will take pics soon! Running a WALBRO internal fuel pump and a Bosch 044 External.

The wiring for the 044 was tricky and needed a relay as the factory wiring didn't meet the standard.

Now no surging while I drift.

yeah coilovers from an S13 fit with some spacer type thingo.

go to www.nissansilvia.com and look for S13 coilovers from a trader on there! $1500 Australian. Cheap as hell. The green coilovers I think they are HSD are wicked might pay to check with them!

As for Bodykits. I myself am looking to buy one from Yahoo auctions.


Also had a stack on a mountain pass ont he weekend and bent a tie rod end and my REO bar ( the big metal thing bolted to the chassis that holds your bumper up) $500 Aus for a new one and $120 for the tie rod end! Ouch

Will keep yas posted! If your after anything specific just let me know I can get heaps of stuff

haha yeah ive been on nissansiliva.com for about 3 years now, becasue then they were the only forum that hosted ca18det info. but thanks for the heads up.

im already running kts s13 coilovers but from my understanding each coilover kit is usually vlaved differently for the weight of the vehicle. i might look into that s13 spacer thing, sucks because when running s13 lca you automaticly get a 1.5 degree of camber which takes away wheel chearance and pushes your iriginally not soo flush wheels to the fender:( mine are already flush so the only way i can run them is to run -3 degreees camber
\\NOT SOO GOOD FOR GRIP AT ALL. lol

sorry to hear about the car, but things will come back together and you will be there getting it again in no time.

Actually adding camber can help you in both form in function. On both the S13 and F31 I run -3 degs up front. It helps with grip lots more than running the stock angle.

It also helps with fitting larger width wheels since you can "tuck" the wheel underneath nice and flush and when the wheel compresses it clears the fender more easily. Ever wonder why the VIP guys run such crazy camber?

its not the fact that the s13 lca are adding camber w/o adjusting camber plates. its the fact that i cannot go below -3 degrees of camber even if i wanted too. my setting is stuck at -3 degrees. i can only go -3 and up.

i know what tucking wheels are, im running a 17x9+15 front and 17x10+15 rear. pretty much as flush as you get with the M.

i want to be able to run camber for track and drifting but not for daily. epsecially when each week consist of 150 + miles driving.

Have you tried widening the slot on your lower mounts of the coilover? I was able to run a lot of adjustment on my old d-drugs just using that slot on the lower mount and the camber plates, usually anywhere from +1 to -5.

i thought about that, i just posted in driftur's post that the holes on that bracaket ARE in fact elongated so they may be a little off from one another. POSSIBLY, but i am going to switch them out for eachother and see if hte problem occurs with the passanger on the driver side. ill let you know how that goes.

Yeah no worries will do so tomorrow when I get some daylight.

Seems as though from reading on here the VG20DET is relatively unheard of?
