Default My new race car

This thread will be used to discuss the blogs/modifications performed as the B13 4 door makes the transition into a race car.

Removing parts off the old car was not as easy as I hoped it would be. For one...I didn't have air tools out at my parents house where the car had to be delivered because I didn't have enough space in my garage (someone else's car is currently occupying that location). For two...it seems every bolt had decided to weld itself into place with rust, as the car has been sitting for a year uncovered. I purchased an electric impact which worked wonders despite only having 250 ft lbs of torque it has worked flawlessly. It is a little cumbersome due to it's size but we've managed to get onto every bolt necessary thus far.

If you have any more tough bolts, consider using a mini torch to help things out some... of course I'm always a fan of the recipical saw :)

If you can get access to the nut side of the bolt, it's amazing what a wire wheel - in conjunction with a bit of heat as just mentioned - will do to free things up. Strip that rust off and instead of twisting off, most will freely come off.

I'm taking my propane torch out with me on Friday. I think I've removed the majority of the difficult ones, but it never hurts to have...just in case.

We spent a while discussing yesterday the eventual outcome of this project, and decided we'll want more power than the GTiR T28 will be able to manage. For longevity purposes I'll use another log manifold, like the one currently on my B14. For a turbo I'll go either with the indispensible Turbonetics 50 trim, SC50, or similar setup. I don't think I would ever need more than 400 whp on a road course out of a FWD, but right about that I think would be perfect.=) These turbo changes will mandate a change in diff and transmission as well, from the stock B13 trans to a B15/P11 trans with a Nismo diff.

Sorry, but it doesn't...I hadn't gotten around to picking that setup up yet. So it's straight from the T25 to the larger frame turbo next year.
