In 2014 I bought this S13 with it just being a daily and a little project car, at the time I was interested in Hondas, but all of that changed when I saw my first couple of drifting videos online. I ended up buying this car while I was in Georgia for 2800. When I received it back then it had a single cam KA24, a welded diff, Raceland coilovers, and ISR (at the time ISIS) suspension arms. The fenders were already rolled and it came with stock wheels. Since then the car has been through a couple of different stages and as I learned different things the car improved. The first thing I did to it was put on some cheap replica Advans I found on e-bay. At the time I didn't know that replica wheels were a bad idea. I just wanted wheels that weren't stock on the car. From there I wanted to do a motor swap because the single cam, though was reliable, was also very slow. So I started to consider my options. The SR20 was a great option because It was drop in and easy. But the Motorsets at the time were almost $2200 and up. I found RB20 motorsets for 1400-1500 dollars at the time and I thought the straight 6 sound of an RB20 was the coolest thing ever, not to mention that they came in skylines, laurels, and cefieros. So thats what I ended up going with, at the time I thought that a 1jz swap would be too much, but to be honest I shouldve saved up that little bit more and I would've had a better motor to start with. But as I was learning, the RB20 was an amazing motor. It sounded great, made the same amount of power as an SR20 and it felt good driving with that motor in the car. So, this car is how I was able to learn and make a lot of cool friends. After the RB20 was running good and well, I decided to focus on suspension. I changed out the cheap Raceland coilovers for some PBM coils, those handled much better than what was on the car, and along with that it made the performance much better overall. Next I wanted to get a proper set of wheels on the car. So I opted for Work VSKF's. A classic 5 spoke chrome wheel that you cant go wrong with.
