This is how the idea came about. Guy asked me to put a sr20det into a 1999 Miata. Being one not to turn down a odd engine swap, I said to get a whole s13 sr20det half cut. We worked out a deal for everything extra and not needed from he swap. So then I knew I had to get a 240 and rhd swap it.

Image

That's where this pile of crap comes into play.

I collected parts after I got the car. Car was pretty gutted and nothing really worthwhile came with the car other than it being a rolling car. By this point the half cut had been stripped of everything needed to get the Miata done.

Slowly started stripping down the half cut. Took a full day to 90% of it stripped

Still removing crap

Ended up getting a very good deal on a swap for it. I traded out some labor for the engine. And it comes with work needed. All of the valve cover bolts are stripped in the head. Other misc issues, but I'll go through those when the engine goes in.

Image

A lot of the removed stuff.

Image

Stuff keeps getting real.

The realness doesn't stop

Here's most of the metal I'm keeping for the swap.

Metal I'm not using, but don't have the heart to toss to scrap yet.

Image

Now onto the car. This was apparently a drift car at one point that was never fully finished. Without a half cut, this car would have sucked to source all the metal to go back to a stock underhood metal and a good core support. This car has passed through several hands over the last couple years. Each removing or adding More things that I need to buy, fix or trash. But it was a good enough starting point for now.

Took the junk core support off, and accidentally broke the windshield while trying not to break it.

At this point the bay is ready for paint. The color I chose is Nissan championship blue. It came painted on 98 cars all together. All of them were 96 skyline LM Gtr models. Very limited production. Rivsu imports recently imported one legally and when they displayed the car I fell in love with it.

Image

My buddy Thomas and I drove our skylines out to pick up the paint. I decided to get the paint for the r32 at the same time. I'll update that build log soon.

Started test fitting body parts for shits and giggles

Image

So naturally I have to test fit the wheels. These came off a buddies mk4 supra he just bought. He gave me the wheels, so I will rock them. They are 19s. 8.5 -11 front and 9.5 -11 rear. 3 inch spacers in the rear and 2 inches in the front. So it's safe to say, the body is going to be widened.

This pretty much brings the car back up to date. I have 10 days total at this point. The engine bay will be getting sprayed tomorrow. I'm super excited! I will be able to get the bay reassembled and get the dash and start getting the interior into shape. Then I can figure out what all I'm missing.

Got a lot done today, and my buddy came and sprayed the engine bay. I am in love with the color. It was for sure the right choice
