I went through evo 8 calipers and rotors - worked great but heavy:



I sold those and got defsport / skullwork s wilwood brake kit with floating hat rotors:



I also traded the 350z anniversa ry edition wheels for some concave 18x9.5 +25 wheels. 
I got a wingless trunk also:



I'm currently running 245 front and 285 rear tires.

And somewhere along the way I got KTS coilovers in 8k front, 6k rear. 



And I got John @ Gatage Zero to pull the smoking stock twins and put my gt37 on.

Ya that's me.

I got a silver / gray wingless trunk now.

The hood is kinda janky primer white hood.

I have a bunch more parts that I haven't installed yet.

I haven't posted about this in a while.



That's a better pic of the brakes.

And I got a couple more sets of wheels + overfende rs:







My goal is max grip, so I went with a set of 335/30/18's on 18x12 +20.

The white WedsSport wheels are a more modest 18x10 +18 wrapped in 285's. 




I got some more goodies including the gktech roll center correctio n kit:





40mm or roll center correctio n, 40mm of bump steer correctio n, and 60 degrees of steering angle with the spacers I purchased .

http://www.gktech.com/index.php/s13-180sx-40mm-roll-center-correction-kit-pre-buy-eta-mid-late-august.html

This should pair well with the hicas steering rack I got ready to go in - it's a little over 2.5 turns lock to lock.

I have abs front knuckles that I need to install as well; just need to find some front lower control arms to complete the upgrades there.


And I got my s14 rear subframe painted:






I have an SPL solid offset bushing kit to put in it:



And an SPL solid diff bushing kit too:



My intention is to use the q45 rear end, q45 / z32 axles, q45 aluminum rear uprights + z32 rear brakes to complete the rear.


I also got some usdm supra injectors - which will give me a higher ceiling for boost / power, and a MAP ECU so I can tune it:




The alternato r started to crap out, so I got a 2007 tundra alternato r that puts out 130 amps - just need to mod it to swap in.

And I found a new fuel leak in the engine bay, so now to hunt that down.
