05 nismo

as of right now its not really a build. i just like keeping records of what i do. i plan on tswap and some shrocked items by the end of 2013 but we will see how it plays out.

so far this is what i have and done.
i picked up this 2005 nismo king cab with right at 100k for a decent price.
the tires were bad, brakes shot, windshield cracked, cel on (o2 sensor, fuel level sensor) abs, slip, vdc from gsensor, steering wheel sensor and abs actuator. now just slip and vdc on from actuator which is a massive rip off imo. tire pressure sensor on too. and the belt and tensioner was toast

i think that covers the bad, oh ahaha wait the interior smelled like a dogs *** hole.

first thing i got it in for tires and an alignment, got the windshield replaced, did an oil change. took it into the dealer for a 100 point check or whatever. i have trans, xcase, front and rear diff fluids on the way.


heres some pics from the night i got it.






heres from today, although i am super happy i have a house with a two car garage now. its not heated and it was a balmy 25* today. so it was up at the warehouse for maint pulling stuff off to grab the belt and tensioner


lol i did a little back and fourth. replaced cabin filter as well.

old/new

all on and running smooth and quiet


the interior needed a good clean as well




bay was dirty as balls.

slightly better


got all the gay stickers off and debaged it







more updates as they arrive.

Get a Superchips Cortex - the tunes are good for that year and they read/clear codes.

duly noted, def looking into nabbing it over this summer.
filled up today and drove roughly 70 miles, no cel and netting 19mpg instead of the normal 13.8 ive been getting lately.

in other news i had some stuff come in. all new fluids for drain and fill on trans, xcase fluid, and both difs. pads and rotors all around. only waiting on the small tube for trans bypass. this is shaping up to be a fun little weekend. cant beat all of this for just under 300$

waiting to hear back on the bulk of my tswap. ive got most parts ready and priced at 500$ but i may be able to get some bones off and have it all brand new. ill keep that updated though.

so i got a piss ton of work done today. and two broken fingers. lol jk but maybe.
i got all 4 rotors and pads changed, and got the front and rear difs changed. and the xcase fluid as well. i really wanted to get the trans fluid changed, but my bypass tube hasnt made its way in yet and i didnt wanna go spend more money on another one.


table all ready

hahha i had the tripod out today







ty working on a 370


brakes all done, nothing major or hard to do with them. i just like keeping good records.
ALL of the fluids i replaced today were horrendous. holy ****. i didnt take pics of all the fluid replacement because my fingers were hurting and i was tired and ready to go home. front diff is i would say the worst of the three i did. but if you have a tube about 3.5' and a small funnel you can route it through the engine bay and easy as pie.




my ujoints all need replaced as well. that should be getting done over the next couple weeks. getting a lot of clicking noise at low speeds and vibrations up higher.

and soon when all the maintaining is over, the modding will begin
