Aeromotive A1000 fuel pump
Check out this oldy but goody vid of the fuel system on the B13 race car project! This is a sumped stock gas tank with a gravity fed -10 line to a 100 micron filter and then to an Aeromotive A1000 fuel pump. The pump outputs to a -8 line and then to a 10 micron filter before the fuel injector common rail. It’s tough to pull off the sleeper look when this pump is singing!
Nissan RB25 or RB26 CAD Drawing Exhaust Manifold Flange
Need a Nissan RB25 or RB26 flange drawn up in order to have it machined? We designed this Nissan RB25 or RB26 (the design incorporates dual bolt patterns) exhaust manifold flange in Solidworks which can be used on your custom turbo manifold or header fabrication project. Let us know what type of file format is required and we can make it happen!

Part 1. THE FIND
Part 1. THE FIND
While browsing Craigslist one day, I found this super clean touring edition P11 (chassis code for a ’99 Infiniti G20) w/ leather seats and manual trans. It had a misfire and a bum head gasket…nevertheless, the price was right so another SR powered (Nissan motor code for awesome) car was added to the stable. The oil and coolant still look good so it should be a simple gasket swap to get it back on the road. Future plans for the car are a reliable 6spd 300whp (turbo of course) daily driver with good gas mileage (30+ mpg). New head gasket set and bolts are on the way in. Hopefully I can start breaking it down next weekend. There is a quick video of the newly acquired steam machine down below for your viewing…hmmm, I wouldn’t really call it viewing pleasure, but for future reference, this is what a bad head gasket can do.
Double adjustable rear lower control arms for the B13 chassis.
[add_to_cart item="B13-RLCA" showprice="only" quantity="user:1" ]
It’s been a while since we released anything but we finally have another product to offer! What you see here are double adjustable rear lower control arms the ’91-94 Nissan Sentra chassis. These are available fabricated from either 4130 chromoly or 6061 T6 aluminum. They replace the stock lower control arms with spherical rod ends, allowing the suspension to cycle through the entire range of motion without binding.
Key Design Features
- On car camber and toe adjustability
- Retains all stock hardware
- Compatible with stock or aftermarket exhaust systems and rear swaybars
Additional info and installation guidelines coming soon!
Cool it w/ a top mount and air conditioning
We just had to share this, additional images and dyno results are on the way!
Welcome Willy, your the latest addition to the family of turbo manifolds! After considering everything on the market, we came up with this AC compatible top mount manifold design for the Honda B and D series. This beautiful hand crafted mani will fit all your common T3 framed turbochargers and keep your air conditioning ice cold.
- Manual steering only, not compatible w/ power steering.
- May require A/C high/low pressure line modification depending on application.
Custom radiator and cooling system for the old b13.
As most of us know, it can be very tough fitting a large turbo setup in a FWD SR20 car with a stock radiator. There are quite a few solutions to the problem ranging from switching to slim fans or even running half width radiator. On our b13 project, we decided to run a slightly shorter width radiator and scoot it forward, mounting it where the AC condenser used to sit. The main reasons we choose this method are that at this stage, the car was setup for drag racing. We moved as much mass as we could forward and as kept it as low as possible trying to minimize weight transfer. We also wanted a radiator with a decent amount of surface area to keep temps in check as the car is occasionally driven on the “warm” streets of Arizona. Finally, we wanted to keep the fog lights functional on our Sunny bumper.
The all aluminum radiator fin surface area measures in at 213.5 .in^2. This is a dual pass design with both the inlet and outlet on the passenger side. Mounting the radiator in this location requires removal of the stock hood latch.
We decided to pair the radiator with a Mezeire electric water pump. We fabricated a mount from chromoly and positioned the pump near the passenger side frame rail. The low pressure pump inlet is located beneath the radiator outlet, so it always gravity fed.
At this point, everything was headed towards the custom route, so we decided to go nuts with the cooling lines. We ripped out the stock cooling lines along with the thermostat housing and fabricated hard lines from stainless steel tubing. These lines are 1.5 in. w/ a 0.065 wall, so they flow a decent amount of fluid. The coolant flow is setup for bottom to top operation e.g., coolant flows through the block first and then exits through the head. An inline thermostat w/ bypass ports will be installed when winter rolls around.
Next up is the surge and overflow tank. We fabricated these bits from aluminum. The surge tank has (2) bleed ports and (1) drain port and is mounted up high near the firewall. This is also were the radiator is topped off . The overflow tank is on the left.
Here you can see the surge tank drain line returning back into the low pressure pump inlet. You can also view where we have mounted the coolant temp. sensor.
The radiator also has coolant ports built in for water cooling the turbocharger. One of the ports is high pressure and the other is a low pressure so coolant is continually flowing through the center section keeping the bearings happy. Unfortunately, I could not find any pictures of these lines and the car is currently in pieces. Overall, this setup performs very well and keeps coolant temps in check when driven on the street and drag raced.
