--TeAm NiGhT ShIfT-- at it again

well well ...we have a new car on the team ....old member new car lololol ...
this car was gutted strip of the stock KA , this last few weeks and now has a SR20DET ...just a few little things left and she will be up and running ...
lsd install a small wireing issue front mount install and few little odd and ends ......
grays bro is really stoked on this one ...he pretty much had the same car befor this..
it was a red 240sx hatch ...he swaped shells becauce of body damage and police issues...

also i got a helping hand from a few good team members to pull the motor and trany from my junker ....iam going to do a trany swap at some point ...also iam slowly going to build a turbo motor from the bottom up from this block ....it will be a long term project ....however for now i must !!!
..clean and port this extra intake...i changed the trottle linkage on my 60mm trottle body ..it was very eazy not a hard fix at all..
so with this 79 intake ported and cleaned and the 60mm trottle body it should give it the extra kick im looking for ....
i have a shed full of extra parts ...
Need anything let me know ! I will take a look see , and see if i have it ...

Got the ebrake off of old blown yesturday ..and installed it today on the good black this afternoon....what a bitch that was ..after i got it all hooked up i pulled it up and the calipers locked up ...i got some spray lube and lube the springs and cables up in there really well ...i had to have a friend work the ebrake handle .. while i worked the springs by hand untell they came free ....it took a bit of work but i have a good working ebrake now ....stoked out the hardest part of this was trying to get the old cable out .if you try to do this then this mite help you ...there is a little locking plate that holds the cable it has a notch in it .dont try to slide the cable out the side of this plate ...it wont go out that way ....if you line up the cable just right with the hole and push the cable back though the plate it will come out....

awesome. and with a working parking barke, your rear calipers shoud be adjusted now... so maybe your regular brakes feel more solid?

I swapped out my sticky parking brake cable. I used some penetrating oil on the four exposed ends and worked it back and forth before putting the cable in. (as suggested by L-DUB in a previous post)

no way man, I've been scouring the yards for an LSD with no luck. I have found a few 84-86 turbos...
and I've got about 10 turbo engines over here, but no LSD units...

I paid $630 shipped. If you buy the LSD carrier itself ($900+), then you'll have to pay $200+ for someone to install it correctly in the pumpkin (uness you are already a pro at intalling gears).

I dont' have the pic of the clutch line anymore. Its not too difficult. I just made two gentle bends in it. Hold it up near your firewall and see how it might unfold to reach across. Let the force be your guide.
You are going to need more than just the clutch and brake pedals. I heard you need the whole manual tranny pedal assembly as your auto won't have the brackets for the clutch pedal. I'll send my droid to fetch the parts from my junkyard.

Here it is, the assembly above the pedals that holds the pedals. Your parts car may have this but if you don't have it anymore, I can send you this one.

he already has the pedals from this 'nasty' part, and this part is free... delivered. that is, if he needs to use this rust bucket.
