Elbow Grease

Time to kick 2013 off with a bang! After tearing out my old, broken CA18 with Japspeed mechanic Ant we dropped the bare SR20 into its place until I could get the car into the workshop to finish off the conversion. A Friday night jaunt upon Alex Law’s “Kevin the […]

The S13 Build Continues…

Progress has been made once again with my S13, and this time it has been in a pretty crucial area for a drift car: steering lock. It also received a lick of paint to the front bumper, so for the first time in a long while I can say I […]

The S13 Build Continues…

So after much pressure and with a Santa Pod “Drift What You Brung” day rapidly approaching I gave in and bought myself a variety of adjustable arms for the rear of my S13. Having slammed the car not long back the adverse effect this had had on my geometry was very apparent […]

S13 Days

The sun wass out, the weekend was still young…what better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than working on your skid cars with your mates. The ej9.co.uk ’13 is now sporting a pre-facelift front bumper and a new door as the entire window mechanism on my old one had killed […]

The ej9.co.uk S13

After fitting HSD coilovers to my S13, the obvious step to take next was, of course, some proper wheels. I’d been searching for the right set ever since I took ownership of the car, holding out until I found the perfect ones (very uncharacteristic of me!). Eventually, they appeared: a set of […]

HSD DT Coilovers

As soon as I picked up my S13 I knew exactly what my first major modification needed to be: coilovers! In all honesty I found the standard ride height pretty offensive to look at, which, coupled with the horrendously soft dampening, made the car pretty uninspiring to drive (not to […]

Jonny’s S13

The time had come: after weeks/months of faffing around, waiting for parts and a number of excuses of varying credibility it was time to drop an SR20 into Jonny’s previously CA18’d, automatic S13. If you remember my previous post on this car, you’ll know that Jonny’s last S13 was involved […]

The ej9.co.uk S13

As you can probably guess by this post, my foray into BMW ownership didn’t exactly last long. The lack of a turbo wasn’t the deciding factor, no (although I was seriously missing the fun of boost). I think it was more to do with Buxton’s Ring of Steel claiming the […]

The S13 Life

I think this picture sums up some of the “perks” of S13 ownership pretty accurately…engineless car? Check. Garage full of parts? Check. A man facepalming? Check. As I’ve recently become an S13 owner myself I hope I won’t end up going down this path…but I can see it becoming the […]
