    2G My 2g awd build

    Post by 95weclipse

    Hello every one, I am Don I am new to the site and would like to post my 2g awd build here, right now my gsx is mostly stock, I bought it bone stock other than rims, tail lights, head lights and exhaust other than that she was completely unmolested, even the stock air box lol, well I have owned it for 5 months now and the first thing I did was I wanted to put my wide band and boost gauges in well, the boost gauge went fine but went to put the wide band in and accidentally nicked the front o2 wire and couldnt fix it, cut it right at the plug Mad well luckily I had a 2g computer with link from my last car. Well I got link hooked up and just simulated the aem wide band to run my front o2, thanks to the help of a good friend, next thing I did was blew the t25, Evil or Very Mad great now what am I gonna do, well lucky me being a hoarder, I had a blown 14b so I bought a re build kit, hogged out the exhaust housing and waste gate hole made my own 35 mm flapper lol sand blasted every thing and painted it and put it on, luckily for my last car I kept the j pipe and oil feed, made my own oil return, and I was on the road again, so I got bored out of my mind one weekend so I did the batt relocation to the trunk, complete egr delete and put my afpr on, and a wally 255, and rewired that bad boy. then I bought a used HUICP so I could run my greddy type s bov, I could only build 12 psi with the stock bov lol, so now I am running 21 psi consistently and love every bit of, OH and I for got to mention this is AUTO, for now, well this car has 183k on it and I daily it, WELL the bad news is, the head gasket seeps on the out side, oil that is and a tiny tiny bit of coolant, so I need a motor, lol lucky me again<<<< hoarder, I have a 6 bolt block hahhahahha this is gonna be fun, so heres where it gets real peeps, I am going to run a stock bottom end, mainly cause I daily this and have no reason to BUILD the crap out of it yet lol, lets get started shall we, crank is still sitting at machine shop waiting to be picked up, ran short on money this week, had is micro polished and magnafluxed, so I need to pick that up, stock un cut crank, I got a used set of rods from a friend, with junk 1g pistons tongue , I removed them at work in the press, got luck they came off really really easy, I need to buy pistons yet, I am going to run NPR pistons, I read around and asked a few people if they where ok, every one said they have had and have seen great results with them, I am gonna get the 2g pistons, so I need to drop the rods of at the machine shop to have them machine the little end for the 2g pistons, then I will put the pistons on at work, it'll save me a few bucks any way, then my next step is to drop the block off at the machine shop and have it bored 20 over, deck it till its true what ever that might take off its not too bad theres only 2 spots that I can get a .004 feeler gauge under and they are on the back side of the block, then time for more parts, ARP mains, head studs, and rod bolts, yeah budy, ACL race bearings, felpro graphite head gasket, NPR pistons and prolly the rings that come with, then while I have all of this out, I am trading all my auto stuff for all 5 speed stuff, yay! the only reason I am doing it is cause I daily it, yes I love the auto but, its a pain in the ass as well, there are pros and cons to both but I like the 5 speed more, so while I have that out I am gonna do a wire tuck, so after I got the trans back in, first thing after I down the car I am sending my 14b to turbo lab to have it converted to a TLB20g afro so with that being said I need injectors, I dont have a set size yet but I think I will just go with 1000cc ptes, I liked the 880s I had but with this 20g Ill need a little more playing room, also I plan on going with speed density, I do not plan on self tuning, nor to I want to lol, also with my increase in air flow I ll need a fmic so the first thing that I am buying with my taxes is a Punishment racing fmic, there will be pics along the way but this wont start till mid January so bare with me

    well the trans I got for my 5 speed swap I didnt not end up using, I had a spare that I was going to keep but I posted pics of the case and I didnt feel like messing with it so I took my spare to work and found one of the front diff bearings "cracked" in half, it was an almost perfect split all the way around, so I decided to do a full bearing overhaul, I called my buddy over at TMZperformance and got all the bearings, well upon installing the bearings I noticed the teeth on the 1/2 gear slider hub where chewed up pretty bad so I had to order one of those, well while I was at it I talked to Tim Zimmer of tmzperformance and correctly redid all of my end play and pre load on all of the bearings, so I had to buy all new shims, I also ordered red line MT90 and some shockproof gear oil from him

















































































    new oil psi and boost gauges

    this journey as been a long one, I gave up on the wire tuck and sent it to a friend in michigan and he is supoosed to of had finished it and shipped it 4 weeks ago, but some stuff happened and I was suposed to get my harness friday or saturday, well I havent, he seems to think it got lost in the mail....... well really shitty thing is that I sent him my gm IAT and gm map sensor with pig tail to wire it up for speed density, so he said if all else fails he has a clean untouched stock harness hell send me but Idk what ill do about the sd bundle I spent 100$ on already, he said he has a map sensor I havent asked about the IAT though.... it makes me really upset that I put all that trust in some one again and he screwed me over it seems like, but it just puts a damper on my project, my custom exhaust is another joke, at first it took him awhile to get going on it then when july came around he started on it along with 3 other exhausts/manifolds, and in the process he did a custom exhaust on a 350z, and a whole shit load of custom dsm flanged o2 housings, which took him awhile, so end of july comes around he said hell have it done, well he didnt, but he did try I know he was working ridiculous long hours, but I orderd this exhaust from him back in like February well he said he could have it done for the shoot out, well he messed up the manifold and had to re make it, well he ran out of materials and had to wait for an order that was a day late, then he had to finish it, then he made my catch can, and the rest of the exhaust, my cat back is the 3" ss v band in the pic above on the left, id post pics of the manifold but I dont have any yet

    right now I just need my harness, exhaust, and turbo, almost for got, I sent the turbo to turbolab to get a billet pro wheel and reassembled and a new turbine, mine was junk..... yay for trying to rebuild a turbo by your self lol
