    Default Dusted off my account!

    Hey guys! Haven't been on in a while. For those who don't know me I used to admin the current B15 Sentra FB page with a couple of other members but now just lurk about. I still have my 1.8 hand-me-down though it's seen better days (highway accident back in June, someone cut two lanes over into my exit lane and smacked my driver side). It's started to show its age, and I figured it might be time to upgrade. So I bought 2 plane tickets and I will be flying down to GA with my mom to buy a Spec V from Joe and drive it the 12+ hours back. I already made the deposit. Once the car is home I'm gonna pull parts off the 1.8 and throw it on the Spec V. I plan to keep it a daily/street car. The paint is a bit rough but the body is accident and rust free, unlike my old NJ road-salt-blasted 1.8.
    Parts coming off my 1.8 and into the Spec V are:
    Corbeau Forza Sport driver seat
    OMP passenger seat
    Nardi Personal steering wheel and hub
    2J 15mm ALK
    2J rear sway bar
    Ultra Racing room bar
    Sony headunit (the car I'm buying has no radio)
    AEM Dryflow filter
    Optima YellowTop
    I also have 300ZX calipers in my garage I can eventually throw onto the Spec.
    The 1.8 has a UR 4 pt underbrace that's staying on the car since it's a pain to remove. It also has polyurethane bushings everywhere minus the rear beam. The Spec has to play catch-up.

    Overall I'm pretty excited to be upgrading to a more powerful version of a car I've grown to love. I'm glad to see the forum still kicking too!
    Pic of my 1.8 from a while back. 240K original miles with factory engine, clutch, and trans. Don't have a super recent pic because of winter but most of the stickers are gone and the mudflaps have been taken off also.

    [03-03-2016 05:36 PM] DaveSpecB15 : My Sentra has a QR25taf swap. It's the turbo as fuck engine. I coulda got a DE for cheap though. But my muffler bearings couldn't handle the torque. You gotta tune that shit on hopes and dreams.
