Default Picked Up A P10 G20 Over The Weekend

Well I picked up a 96 G20 last Saturday. I sold my G35 (was tired of payments, and I'm trying to buy a house), and actually had a few bucks left over after paying the loan off. So in a way, this car was free! Ha ha. It's a 5spd manual with A/C, Cruise, sunroof, etc. Gross interior color, but that can be changed out. Bought it from the original owners, which was kind of cool. It was the cleanest cheap P10 in the area in the last few weeks, so I grabbed it. I needed a decent DD to replace the G35. I know it's a "downgrade", but I'll make it nicer... I can't leave anything alone! Ha!

Here are some pictures of how it is today... Going to work on cleaning it up soon.









The gross interior... Ha ha.




100% Stock SR... Runs nice and smooth!


Here you can see the color pretty well. I actually like it quite a bit!


Immediate plans are to just clean it up as best as I can. Probably going to VE swap it with an LSD trans just to make it more fun, but was thinking of trying to set it up for some Auto-X fun. I know the VE will bump me up to the SMF (?I think?) class, so I won't be competitive really, but I was hoping I could get some tips from those who have messed with these cars before. It's my first one, so I'm not 100% sure what suspension bits are better than others.

Fun stuff. I almost picked one up before I got my RSX, but I didn't want to really wrench on my daily so the Type S gave me all the speed I was looking for.


Now I'm thinking of an SUV for a daily actually... Not sure how much I'll miss driving a manual, but I hit enough traffic daily that I think I can live with it.

Yeah, I plan on swapping in the VE before swapping everything between he two 240s, that way I can drive the S14 for a bit. Then I wont be wrenching on the P10 much besides things that take an afternoon or less, ha ha.

Thanks! I think they painted S13s this color in Japan and the anniversary edition Z32s as well.

Today I installed the first mod! Ha

JWT Pop Charger



More stuff coming soon...

Already started modding! Hah!


I've only put in a nicer stereo with bluetooth in the RSX, and then a lightweight flywheel and OEM clutch when it started slipping. Other than that the usual stuff like brake pads and returning it more to stock (which made me about $700 for just a little work).

Nice... it sounds like fun, but I've been really glad I got the RSX-S since it was pretty much what I was looking for from the factory. Don't have the time to tinker with the DD these days.

Yeah if I could afford one, it would have been a good DD for me as well. I'm cheap, and don't want a car payment anymore (big reason why I sold the G35), ha ha. I only had 2.5k to spend on a car, so my options were pretty limited to say the least. So I bought the G20 and had enough money to pick up an SR20VE + LSD trans for it. I'll be driving the S14 around while I get the G20 ready to be the reliable DD. Then this winter, the big project of swapping everything from the S13 over to the S14 begins.
