    Transmission and LSD flushed and filled with Amsoil
    brakes and clutch bled and filled with ATE super blue racing fluid

    O mai goodness. A carb'd SR20!! :shock: Super nice. I love it :tu: !! Is this how the car was delivered to you?? Looks like the car was well taken car of.

    Constructive criticism: I honestly have reserves about the battery placement though. Although, Optima makes their batteries sealed, they also recommend that it's best that it be place in a separate sealed box of it's own due to possible fumes that may escape. Just a risk I personally wouldn't take.

    Painting those interior door panels and adding the carpet was an awesome move. I hope that my 510 will eventually come out looking this nice. I still have a long way to go on my project.

    What are the wheel specs btw?

    I don't mean to drill you but that's a nicely done up 510.

    Not quite. Individual throttle bodies. Still fuel injected but uses the same principal as twin dual throat carbs like dcoe webers or Dellorto dhla's etc which is one lot of mixed fuel and air per cylinder.
    Best of both worlds really when you think about it.

    In saying that, I think there are some SR20's getting about with carbs, there's no reason why it cant be done :mrgreen:

    :tu: It came with the motor and such already but it's taken a lot it to get it where it is now. As far as the body the car is rust free aside from what surface rust you can see. She's a little rough on the panels and paint but in great condition otherwise. I actually really dig the patina roughed up original look though.

    I appreciate the battery concern, I do need to get a sealed box but I just haven't gotten around to finding one.

    The wheels are 14x7 -9 w/ 185/55/14's all around. GL with your project.

    Me either! I've yet to ever rev it past 5K since I didn't really trust the old tune, and I've only driven once to work since I got it back with the retune. It will be the first time I rev it to 8K and I bet that motor is going to just scream :tu: In cab filming is all I'm going to do, not my camera so I don't want to take a chance of it falling off mounted outside.
