    Welcome to the forum! Looks like a clean coupe you picked up. If you ever decide to mod it, shoot us a message.

    Also, I see the 240 project in the background. I built a LS swapped S13 coupe a few years back;

    Someone will definitely have this for ya.


    And LOL @ 66666!!

    Nice car. Enjoy! This forum can be detrimental to remaining stock tho.

    As you prolly know...these cars are amazing mod platforms. If you have budget and inclination at least consider pulley/tune/injectors. It'll be as much MORE difference as it was between your prior ride and the V.

    thanx guys. im sure itll get some mods. actually just got a airaid intake for it for super cheap off a buddy. im about to paint the grilles, possibly do an emblem change.

    i wanna do a splitter and side blades. it looks like you HAVE to run rods with the front splitter though. i really dont want any holes in my bumper.
