Hey, nice car you have there!

i have few questions about it:

1. what kind of upgrade you did to the chassis (coil, springs, shock absorbers ets...)
2 maybe you are selling carburetors? if i see right weber DCOE?
3 rear diff is LSD? original from E21 or later? for example E30 e36?
4 where did you brought s14 engine? how long you searched for it?
5. what kind of parts you used for rear coils and front?

thanks :)

Hello. I Think most already is written in this tread,but I can try to answer..:)

1. I have eibach springs and bilstein shocks. Harder bushings in the rear axle,soon the be at the front also. Have ordered swaybar kit from VAC-motorsport that soon arrives.
2.I have weber 45's yes,but I will keep them for now.
3. The rear diff is 25% LSD yes,and it is original e21. Dont think if will fit from e30 on e21
4. I bought just an our from where I live,it was advertised and I just had to buy it.
5. Everything came from ground control,they have a kit with almost all you need.

I´m not doing much with this car now, just driving it and having fun! It works great! However I plan some work this winter. Have to change the rear shocks as I got the wrong ones. Should have bilstein sport and got bilstein hd..:( I will always consider to change the bearings in the engine as I dont know how many km it has run and it is recommended to change them around 100000 km.

Hej Jan,

really nice car´and keep up with the good work..

I´ve installed an s14 engine in mine also and I wanted to ask you how well you car is going with the Airfilter you have? as I saw in som pictures you didn´t install the standard filterbox.
I´m running mine with the standard filter box but the air inlet is to close to the front frame and I have the feeling that its not getting the air as it should so I´m thinking to install the open air filter as your´s..

Hi!

It runs ok I think,havent many other I can compare to... I´m thinking of make a shield around the filter to prevent it from taking hot air from the engine bay. I didn't use the original airfilterbox because it hit the front frame,i believe it will not get enough air that way.
