With time and patience, this car will become something great
Sprung a few leaks, eventually changed it to a KOYO OEM radiator.
Began to cause the car to overheat, changed it a few months back.
Lower Control Arms:
Ball joints are used and abused; plan to replace in a week or so with aftermarket quality parts.
Were ruined from coffee stains from original owner, using a seat cover to hide the stains. Will be replacing the seats with either S14 or S15 seats sometime soon.
Bushing need replacing due to old age. Plan to switch to whiteline bushings from PDM-Racing.com.
Overall this is a dependable car. I usually drive very fast and very hard, and no matter what type of pressure or stress I put on this engine, it keeps on going, other than what I listed above, which overall isn't so bad for a 14 year old car.
It's dependable, and with some touches, will be a car to last.
I plan to install a SR20DET or a RB26DETT once my KA24DE engine dies out on me, which from the looks of it, won't be for some time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
