Silvia bumpers is what I been going after for a while. I haven't yet to see another Silvia grill they don't pop up I was just lucky see this one. I know a guy in Portland Oregon who has Silvia bumpers, grills and lights but won't sell them I already asked.

So I will post about it one last time, I have door cards and dash for a S110 not in the best shape but can be saved, next week they go in the dumpster if no one wants them, I need to get rid of them since I will be moving and don't have a use for them since my S110 went up in flames. Also in good shape I have a couple vents and the vent cover for the dash, let me know if anyone has a use for them before I have to throw them away.....

Looking at the rear side by side the 200sx lineage becomes apparent...

In other news..
510 sway bar fits, with small mods.
It hits on the front crossmember lip, so cut that chunk of shit off.. Dont cut into the double layered stuff though.
IMG_20161127_0823447_zps2iskhjf4.jpg
Drill new mount holes about an inch rearward and use through bolts. You have to trim the sway bar mount bracket slightly to get it rear enough. Theres enough room for a bolt and washer though.

Now your s10 200sx wont roll over hard in corners and turn like a BAWS.

Ill report on how it handles when the snow is gone, its hella stiff though. I think its going to be good cause with 275 pound springs in the front and the stock sway bar it still felt like it rolled over and picked the inside rear tire off the ground. If this makes the car plow like a dump truck ill stick a ranger ford 8.8 sway bar in the rear of it, or reduce the front spring rate.

With the stock bar i had good front tire temps and wear running 3 degrees of camber, i think i may have to stand them up a little bit more as the car wont be rolling over soo bad. I also need to cut the front of my fenders so i can put more caster in it.

Dont feel like using the crappy ebay shorty header but looking for that last ounce of power?

Nissan competition/ dp racing header fits s10 200sx's with just a little massaging of one of the tubes to get around the steering box, just a bit of a dent in. Griping about dents? Watch the youtube episode on engine masters where they destroy a set of headers.

The port size on the ebay/top end performance header is a joke, barely fits my thumb through the flange but the real header is built for ported heads.

I expect a 10-15 hp gain from this swap.
IMG_20170114_1845022_zpsz8zvupkl.jpg

The only downside is that its a cunt to get in, i ended up unbolting the motor mounts jacking up the motor and shoving it over to snake it in.
The intake ports are stained blue from race gas and av gas.

Why? 


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Why?


Because the ports in the ebay header flange is about one square inch, whereas this one is huge and has larger/equal length tubes..
Just another massive improvement on the exhaust on a built motor, the ebay header i had on was probibly worse than stock.

The port match was extremely bad. But with the new header its perfect. The intakes also going to have a meeting with the die grinder, i believe that is my other bottleneck right now.
