I'm not looking to make a ton more power, plus the car is great just the way it is. Keeping it nearly stock is the right thing to do right now. Still running the stock airbox with a paper element... :wink:

I had a dismal attempt at autocrossing on Sunday. I needed a gear between 1st and 2nd. :x Not that it would have made up for my driving...Had fun though. :mrgreen:

Me three!

Re: fueling, the injectors are 370cc, which are pretty small in the grand scheme of things.

The fuel pump and the corresponding pump controller module (that lives in the boot) are the things to check, because they ALWAYS fail, especially after 25+ years of service.

I do need to track down one of those pump relays and throw it in the glove box, just in case. :wink:

Out of curiosity how much are you letting this bad boy go for?

aww... :cry:

Ship it down under, I'm sure you can find a safe place for it here!

actually I wonder if my cousin would want it, although he's in Cali, where it would probably never pass smog.

Benny-It's hard to put a price on it, they don't come up for sale here in the States. I'm hoping to find an interested buyer and agree on a price.

Orion-I'd ship it anywhere in the world! :wink:

Took some new shots of the DR. Firefox does a better job than IE at viewing pics it seems. If these are too dark let me know.

Nom, awesome. Black and red stripey interior is my favourite :D

I wonder if it's possible to get it registered in Washington state...

Shouldn't be a problem, I think Washington is one of the easier states to deal with. Clean and clear title with no oddities. Just another 1983 Nissan to the DMV. 8)

Washington state is no problem, especially if it is registered in another state first. I didn't even have to show my to the state patrol.

I'm selling off some of my cars, and I may be in the market soon, depending on a few factors. Drive it and enjoy it. I've already had to pass on one car this year beacuse of other, less fun financial commitments. Ugh. I'll keep you posted.
