Allow me to introduce myself,

First of all I've actually never owned a primera, only ridden the back seat once and stared down engine bays that held SR's in them.

My first car in fact, was a Silvia S12. Back then my knowledge of mechanical engineering were: 'rwd + turbo = doriftou!' due to the stuff picked up watching Initial D and playing Forza motorsport.


This is where turning wrenches started for me, replacing worn bushings with polyurethane, ball joints, worn dampers for coilovers, reconditioning brake calipers, a basic fmic install and beginner wiring work was all adding to my resumee when things took a turn fort he worst.

On a moist morning i had it’s first track outing without checking my tire pressure, resulting in the view above. With it’s wheelbase shortened 200mm on one side i knew i had to manage another set of wheels to pick up parts for this one.

Few weeks later i inherited a March/Micra through a friend. With a few dents and a few bad sensors it set me back less than a week’s paycheck to have it running correctly. Even though it was slOoow i figured it was perfect for hauling parts fort he next 6 months or so i calculated the restoration to take. In the process i was reminded i had never welded in my life and wanted a forged bottom end among other things so things took a little longer than expected…

In the following year(s) i've picked up some welding classes and began building an understanding, almost respect sort of vibe towards the simplicity and ease of access of the little K11, a different set of wheels and some small suspension work followed decreasing the (immense) body roll.

But one part that always bothered me, was it’s 0-60 time of 16,5 seconds









What you’re watching here is a GA16DE derived from a P11-144, the head, pan and valve cover were taken off for inspection and fresh gaskets installed. The Garrett T25 from my S12 was fitted since I won’t be refitting that later, I rebuilt it’s entire rotating assembly as the housing and turbine wheel were warped after it’s imminent shut down after the crash. All of this I’m trying to run off a P10 SR20DE ecu with nistune installed (83JXX series) . Matching SR 269cc top feed injectors are also fitted on a diy fuel rail.

Further mods include:

DIY mild steel Exhaust Manifold

GA16i distributor/CAS sensor

PRW2 ignitor chip, S12 Ignition Coil

Austin Mini Aluminum Sports radiator with modified in/outlets (25 to 35 o.d)

S13 CA18DET Maf sensor

Generic cone air filter

EGR, A/C and steering pump delete (car had neither)

Oil cooler with thermostat sandwich plate

SLC free 2 Lambda controller

 

As of currently the car won’t fire as the ref triggers for the CAS aren’t fed 5v by the ECU (pin 22 & 30), currently double checking my loom while waiting for another ECU to arrive.

By the time i get the engine to fire and it’s keeping it’s fluids and guts in i’ll finish the exhaust system (currently just a diy 2,5” mild steel downpipe till about the firewall), try fit in an S15 FMiC if there’s space and try tidying up the bay.

 

Hopefully that clarifies my visit here! LOL When i run into trouble i am hoping some of you might be able to assist me. Any questions or requests of photo’s i’ll be glad to supply.

Cheers

Sorry to see the S12 in such a state but hopefully we'll be seeing some great things with the K11 - It's shaping up to be awesome!! Welcome to the club
