Hey guys, purchased this car from JDM Legends about 8 months ago. Have been having a blast with it ever since. I thought I would share and post up some pictures! Bare with me here as some of the pictures are low quality.

So you got the JDM Legends DR30, I lusted after that one. Looked super nice. And had some nice aftermarket goodies if I remember right.

Like they said, that is one clean DR30 :tu: .... If Im not mistaken your door trims and back seat seam to be from a Paul Newman, looks much better then the red/black interior with your colour car :wink:

That is something I did not know :) Thanks for letting me know. I would like them a lot more if the back seats were not ripped at the top, but they shouldn't be hard to get repaired.

a lot of DR30 rear seats have some sort of sun damage at the top. Have you tried to figure out how many DR30's are in the states? I have cruised around the interwebs and counted about 8 or so, there are 2 white ones close to where I live. I am sure there are a few more out there, but no mater how you look at it, its a rare car here.

Yes, it is the SR20 ecu as well as the Z32 MAF sensor.

Would be nice to get some better tuning on this car other than what I have now. (SAFC Neo) Runs pig rich and I have a hell of a time passing stage Inspection/IM.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

Wideband is on the to-do list. I might just take it out of my other car for now.

Also I need to correct my high idle problem. 1500rpm when the car is warm and 1000 when the car is cold..seems opposite of what it should be. In Utah if you car idles higher than 1200 then they cannot do the test.

I'm sure you will see it out and about. I am going to start going to Cars and Coffee often, if you ever go to those.

Haven't heard of it. Have to check that out. Hopefully can get my Rolla running soon for something like that.

Which sr20 ecu does it have, S13 red top? Is it still using cap and rotor? and what size turbo is that, and at what RPM does it start spooling at? Sorry for all the questions but I am trying to get a little more go out of my FJ20.

It's the RNN14 ECU. Which is the Nissan Pulsar GTI-R. Yes, it still uses a cap and rotor. The turbo is a Garrett TO4E with an HKS exhaust manifold. I get spool ~4500RPM IIRC.

I wonder how involved the SR20 ecu swap is... It would be nice to have something that can be reprogrammed unlike the FJ ecu
