Build thread by Jon Krentz, on Flickr

I don't see myself selling this car anytime soon so I guess I will start with a "build thread".
I am still not sure exactly what my plans are for this car as I will be using it as my daily for the summer.
Definitely looking to get into a turbo kit eventually, the Speed By Design kit seems like a good option for now
with very good reviews and a large online community with very few blown engines   :hurr:

I guess it all began when I was looking to buy an Evo X last fall, somehow I found this stock 2013 FRS and bought it instead.
The car was in Calgary so I flew out to take a look at it, I didn't have a lot of time so I paid and drove it back without
a very thorough inspection on the same day. There are some gouges in the front bumper I didnt know about and some imperfections in the paint which really bother me.
All in all I am fairly happy with what I got for the price I paid.

It is a blast to drive and is in my eyes it is the best stock looking car in its price range, perhaps one of the reasons I bought it.

People often ask me funny questions about the car:

Did you build the car yourself? If you mean put the wheels and suspension on, yes (mostly).

McDonalds drive through: Its nice car, does it come like this? From the factory? No.

What stage is this car? Stage 3? I am not sure how to answer. Stage 0?

What turbo do you have in there? No turbo yet   :'(

Yeah mom its a Nissan

On to the pictures.

When I first bought it

Was going to make a new Scion thread but I figured there arent too many Scions other than the FRS on here so might as well make it an 86 thread to generate more activity.

General Discussion / Mpi problems (betterment?)
« on: December 30, 2015, 01:49 PM »
So someone was driving my car and hit a curb, a claim was made and now the car is at a shop. The shop says they are putting new parts on the car so Mpi wants me to pay 20% of what the parts cost. I called Mpi and asked what this extra charge is for and they told me its because they are parts that could have some wear since the car is older and they are only restoring it to what it was before, not putting on new parts. The shop didnt have any used parts to restore it to what it was before so mpi is basically charging me the difference. Anyone had this happen before? Seems a bit unfair.

FS: 1996 Nissan Silvia (SR20Det)

I really hate to do this because until recently I thought I would keep this car forever but I have come to face the harsh reality that I will not have time to work on my car so with deep regrets I have decided to put it up for sale.

I imported the car through William at Jdm Connection in September 2014. I put maybe 400km on it that year most of which were on the highway. It has obviously never seen a Canadian winter and is very clean for a 20 year old car. It does have a few paint chips here and there but nothing major. The inside is very good condition minus a working radio. Underbody is very clean.

-sr20det (turbo)
-5 speed
-120k on the dash (will double check to make sure)
-toyota chaser retrofit headlights (rare)
-Navan body kit
-HKS Drager exhaust
-Omp steering wheel
-competition clutch (rated at 400hp)
-Digital speedo
-Turbo timer
-GP GMASTER coilovers
-Ikeya formula tension arms
-Ikeya formula rear camber arms
-nismo **** knob

The price is 10k with gold Panasports or 8k without.
Located in Mitchell, Manitoba
45min south of Winnipeg could possibly deliver with a considerable deposit.

Journals / Jons Winter Beater STI Legacy
« on: January 16, 2015, 08:12 PM »
So I just picked up 1999 Legacy GT-B because my other winter beater was too beat  ;D
I wasnt planning on it, it just popped up on @william website for a good price so I decided to get it.

I dont really want to put too many after market parts on it since I am planning on building my Silvia and this one is supposed to be a daily/winter beater. If I do change up some stuff it will most likely be interior and cosmetic stuff, wheels, seats and audio perhaps.

Aftermarket stuff:
Sti Intercooler
Unknown Exhaust
Work wheels
Turbo timer

Ran into one issue right away. When I picked up the car I had to boost it. Drove about 30min, turned off the car and it wouldnt start or turn over. Bought a new battery but that didnt seem to help either.

Pictures of the car online and when it was picked up:

Journals / 1996 Nissan Silvia
« on: September 30, 2014, 05:36 PM »
So I purchased a 1996 Nissan Silvia from Japan. I always wanted to drive a rhd drive car so I decided I was going to go ahead with the process of importing one.

I flew out to Alberta and talked to Will at Jdm Connection and he helped me decide on a model that was in my budget. I also test drove a Rhd Mini while I was there to see if I liked the Rhd.

It was only a couple of days and the Nissan that was to be mine showed up at the auction. We decided to bid on it and I won the auction at $1000 under my budget which was pretty convenient, so I immediately bought a set of Ce28 reps.

My plans for the car are obviously to increase the HP and make it into something that can be functional on the road but something that will be a blast to drive around a track. I do not plan on drifting this car or putting insane amounts of camber on it. What really sucks is that somewhere on the journey to Canada someone managed to take 3 gauges out of the car and another device which I haven't been able to identify.

Current known "mods".
GP coilovers
Turbo timer
Mismatched wheels
Momo Steering wheel
Nismo shift know
Hks drager exhaust
3" downpipe

I may have forgot something.

Hey guys I am looking to import a vehicle from Japan and I was wondering if anyone had any advice or opinions on who to import through and if the waiting period changes depending on who I import theough and perhaps some unique ideas for which car to import. Which cars it would be easier to convert to Canadian standards and parts are not too hard to find. Pretty much looking to consume as much info as possible before importing, any help/advice/opinions are welcome and greatly appreciated.

Clean title/Clean carfax
2.3 cyl. Awd turbo
Only mod so far is a hks bov but I could take that off if thats an issue. I dont really want to sell the car but I have to drive quite some distance to work each day and I don't want to put too many kms on this car so I think im better off selling it even though it breaks my heart. Its in pretty good condition, it does have a few minor scratches and a tiny spot of rust in the rear passenger fender. Recently replaced sparkplugs and an ignition coil, all work was done at a Mazda dealership. Comes with newish Michelin winter tires and I could throw in some Newer falken summer tires as well (not mounted) both tires are 215/45R18. I hope I didnt miss anything else. Buy this Carr, awd turbo = itz de best.
