My B15 is my first brand new car I've ever purchased. Purchased August 2001, salesman told me I should wait till the 2.5 SE-R came out in a couple months, but I needed a car NOW. So...little did I know then that I made one of the best decisions of my life.

Car was purchased as a 2.0 liter automatic. But, got into the boost game and turbo'd the car in 2005. Motor didn't have the best tune and top ringlands gave way and then the upgrades started.



All 4 cylinders looked about the same. So, asked some friends some suggestions and decided on a VE. But, still craved boost, so motor was swapped. That lasted a few weeks, then the auto transmission went. So, 5 speed swap, of course.

So, after the last 5 years, car sat for probably about 4 years. Here are the current pics:
Nismo RSB


Chassis Braces



Tarmaq LTB and new exhaust



JGY manifold with Tial 38mm wg


XM ITM with stock VE TB


WG Dump




Projectors


Haltech E6K is installed, just need to upgrade brakes, install nismo LCA's, and Moog inner/outer Tie Rods and get an alignment and car should just about be done.

Hey Montreal1.8. I am selling a granite SE. It is still available. Shoot me email if interested.
Seriously? You should start your own thread.


I want this setup so bad!!!
A boosted ve is sic that white b13 in the b13 section is sic as shit!!!!
That B13 was nice...emphasis on the WAS...as that car was not tuned right and the engine is now toast and I believe the whole car was parted out.

Maybe suspension (bushings are bad, axle was on it's way out back then), or I re-shimmed the head for more clearance from valves to pistons so they tap more.

Oh, and the pulleys needed to be re-adjusted back then.

Car survived the trip to CT and back for the Nissan National Convention, so all is well.
