In preparation of her visit to the new 5 mile long thunderhill later this week, I got some beater O.Z wheels and Hoosier SM6 slicks. Painted then bronzish grey and they look surprisingly sharp. Had to run 25mm spacers in the rear for shock clearance though xD. Expect videos on this heap tearing it up!

this sentra is awesome! What do you use for suspension? just springs or it is adjustable coilovers?

Apparently cusco has begun to give a little aftermarket support to the B11 models. Ordered a strut bar, fit and look are great. Car feels a fair bit more solid, and hard braking is alot less twitchy.

I got the similar version for my car. I was surprised at the perceived increase in chassis rigidity. Definitely a good upgrade. I dig the Sentra. Keep us updated.

this is so awesome, I'm tempted to do an engine swap on mine nearer the end of the year so may need to pick your brains when I do, you running coilovers on this all round I presume?

This thing is so cool.

 

I'd love to get a 1984-ish Nissan Stanza wagon and put in a CA18DET....

 

I mean, how cool would it be to destroy a little Civic or equally shitty Miata in a miniature minivan!?

 

PS: that back passenger door is a sliding door, ahahaha!!!

That's the Stanza Axxess wagon, comes from the factory with CA20 engine.

The B11 Sentra/Sunny is far more fun to drive.
Here today gone tomorrow

My  only complaint is it's lack of a fully counterweighted crank xD

Never heard of it being called the Stanza Axxess.... I know that it was the Prairie in Asian Markets, and the USDM Nissan Axxess was also sold as the Prairie, so I guess they would be related.

 

Nevertheless, It would be one HELL of a sleeper. In fact, I remember coming across an old Geocities site where a guy in Australia had one with a CA18DET in it and called it the "Scary Prairie" hahaha!

You did good work CA18DE, time to take a rest. might go into a friends kit car.

Rewired the car to accept a harness from a RNu12 bluebird sss-R fits perfect! all that needs to be done now is a front mount intercooler, proper exhaust and intake.

Hello new ca18det

looks good keep up the work. I loved the ca16 in my pulsar I had it was fun.


It's low, loud and has a hood now.

If there isn't anything running all over the place you're doing it wrong!
