SR20det beginnings

This is a unique one to say the least. The customer wanted a fast fun 2002 that would put a huge smile on his face every time he drove it. The car came with a rebuilt m10 but he wanted efi and a turbo…A Nissan S15 SR20det was picked to check those boxes.

So here we go.

Unwrapping with it’s new home in the background.

First test fit of the engine and a lot of things are in the way….booster, master cylinder, pedal box, steering box and linkage, etc etc….so things will have to move.
