Parts list updated 5/14/20
I finally get a chance to shit away time and money on a car in my life. My goal for this project for now is 300-400whp @14-20 psi, respective to the various tunes. Similar to those who know @yogi b / shanover’s set up. The goal of this is straight to the point going to be a bad ass fully built B15 Sentra from the Northern VA area. Im looking to unlock the full adjustability whenever I want with the heavy thrill that the gas pedal leaves behind, from the tunes, to the chassis. I want a universal car that can raise eyebrows at the dragstrip, between cones in a parking lot, or the ability to be quick on a road course. Im am hunting the long term durability aspect as well. Hard to say that I know but dedication to the time and effort I believe always pays off. From start to finish I have planned this on being a 3 year projected timeline, maybe realistically closer to 4 or even 5. Slow project indeed. I want to try and put as much thought into this because it needs to be built right the first time. Unfortunately it will not mean its going to be cheap or easy. But Ive said fuck it, why not have fun with it while I can. Learn something new, try something hard. Ah, this is the part where the dream comes true..

Time and money
In Summer 2015 I picked up a spare block from a JDM shop nearby. Bastards didn’t include the ac compressor or the alternator though, but was a good block. It sat on my porch for a few days as I partially disassembled it to make easier to bring inside.
After I had help bring it in, disassembly happened. Inside I set it on a stand downstairs and drained all the fluids. It was then safe enough to carry upstairs where it will stay in my spare bedroom. Screw you guys with a garage.
A bit of old burnt oil but it looked pretty good internally. The only nasty part were the piston tops
There was a bit of a... 'mishap'.. downstairs. Upstairs I laid down a large sheet of plastic and a large tarp under the stand to avoid any spillage onto the carpet.
After breaking down everything, it was sent out to get sleeved and fully cleaned!
After, but still wrapped to prevent moisture and dust until full assembly. Believe me I wanted to open it so bad
WPC treated parts. Should of taken a before pic. Its not fuzzy from the pic, thats how it looks. The dimples are so small its really hard for me to even start seeing them. Awesome! Thrust bearing not pictured. I was also thinking about WPC treating my cam buckets but havent done it.
Im open to all options, opinions, and discussions. Thanks for looking. Much much more to come!!
