This combo might cause serious problems when it comes to getting troubleshooting answers on this forum.
It's not rusting. It's just cracked from some stupid driving, poor fender rolling. Yeah under the tail light there is a rust hole. I tried running a magnet over that white crack, it stuck, so I don't know, not a show piece, but some metal there. Yeah, I understood that before getting into it. I had made a post before in which i contemplated the SR20 with serious scrutiny but I wanted something more exciting and lovable than the M40 in the four door 318i, I can't find a 325i for cheap at least, so hashtag YOLO. I needed to make a mistake, mistakes are fun, I think? I'll figure that out, young enough.

Yes, I bought it.

Engine is out of the S14, I sometimes wish I had an S13 SR20DET but if I got that one then I'd wish I had the S14. S14s are easy to 300 WHP I heard. Got some VTC rattle already though.

Unfortunately, the battery died and the last owner had installed a really stiff noisy OS Giken clutch, I think I'll get used to it.

Decent price for all the goodies and speed.
