Forgot to update this thread, so here are some updates:

----------------------------------------------------

12-20-15:

Picked up a cheap set of very used forged 17x7 +42 offset Motegi Traklite wheels. Decently light at 14.3 lbs (6.5kg), they should be pretty reasonable after I clean them up. Planning on stripping and powdercoating them, with new traklite logo stickers and possibly center caps if I can get them. I've had a set of these before in the past (they were much cleaner, lol) on my old AWD turbo celica, and regretted getting rid of them. It'll still be awhile before I actually mount them on the car, mainly because it will take time to clean them up and I also want to install my coilovers first!

Small update!

I added a universal lip to the front for a temporary "fix" until my eGT bumper arrives


I also installed an addco rear sway bar I picked up second hand and installed my 3" SS Catback. Interestingly, the sway bar sits off-center. The right side is very close to the rear tire, but the left side has plenty of room. Anyone else have this issue?

Here are a couple quick pictures of the exhaust!

^^^ Thanks!

Another small update:

I finally got my parts from the UK (well 2 of 3 packages atm). So far, I've received the Primera eGT front and rear bumpers w/ supports, sideskirts, foglights, brake ducts, fender liners, and the rear spoiler (no brake light). Not pictured is the front tow hook (forgot to throw it in the pic). Have more parts still to come, but I'm pumped I got these! Now the real question is: Do I run them "as is" until I get it painted, or wait until paint day? Ha ha ha



----------------------------------------------------

Also got this in today. 3" CAT to replace the bad OEM one.



A couple more parts today to add to the collection. Primera core support (nice for running Primera headlights and not having to hack up stuff; nice clean OEM fitment) and brand new factory eGT mudflaps!



----------------------------------------------------

And today.....

Small update today: Got my eGT front and rear bumper supports, EDM foglight brackets and the front tow hook back from powdercoating today. Had them done in a nice satin textured black that gives it a nice OEM look. Did this mainly because the parts had some corrosion, and of course they are hard to come by for us here in the states, so I wanted to protect them from the elements. That's about it for now.

I've always been interested in these. I was real close to picking up a P11 G20 at one point, and may still do that one day. Going to be a sweet little setup.

Thanks! I've always liked the G20s, they are definitely under appreciated by the general public, ha ha. Which makes them cheap which is a bonus for those that do like them!

Another quick update, lol. Picked up some brand new OEM SR16VE N1 cams today to wake up the motor a bit more

Well, it has definitely been awhile since I posted an update. Both the S14 and R32 have been taking all of my focus the past year, but the past few weeks I actually gave the P10 some love! It all started when I picked up a bunch of R32 parts as a package deal which included some factory 16x8 +30mm R32 GTR wheels. I didn't really have a use for them, as my skyline has nice wheels on it already, so I then set them next to the G20 and thought, "hmmm, those look pretty decent with this car".... and well, next thing I know, I started looking into doing a 5 lug swap.

I ended up grabbing the maxima parts off of a friend's car. So I threw on the GTR wheels while doing the swap in his driveway, ha ha. Sorry, forgot to take pics of that fiasco. When fitting the wheels on the front, I found that due to the larger tire size used on the skyline, the tires rubbed the pinch seam in the front fenders at about 80% lock.



At first, I was going to just buy 225/45/16 tires vs the 225/50/16s that came on the wheels. I soon realized that tire selection in that size is very few and far between, and at a substantial higher cost. So I decided to say, "screw it", and I "trimmed" the seam, ha ha!



I also snapped a few pics of the clearance at full lock. Everything clears, but it's close!







I then decided to finally install my KSport coilovers, since they now offer offset tophats. So I got the tophats and ordered some Cusco upper arms and went to town. I also ordered new front bearings since the old ones were shot. I removed the factory grease and added redline grease instead to help keep them happy.







So without shortened upper arms, the offset tophat works and keeps the coilovers off the third link. With shortened arms, it is VERY close, and will rub if too low. Here's a pic of how tight it is.



One problem is that Ksport uses a 52mm shock body vs a 50mm shock body like a lot of other companies, so the lower mounts are fatter. I need to modify my third link to keep everything happy because I have the shortened upper arms.

After everything was installed, I decided to order new tires for the wheels, and ended up grabbing a set of the new Falken RT615K+ tires.



Finally, I decided to clean up the car a bit after the alignment, and take a couple pictures of the progress! The larger diameter tires definitely make the car sit up higher, so it really needs the sideskirts, bumpers, and lip I have in the garage waiting to get painted!

Cool, looks beefy with the big tires. How does the gearing change affect acceleration?

I haven't really tested it out to be honest, the engine is having some driveability issues atm, so I'm not really railing on it. I've been chasing my tail on trying to figure out what's going on, lol. Still drives to point b from a just fine, but it feels like it's pulling a lot of timing at full acceleration, then gives it back, then pulls it again.
