Geoff W and his new Micra Grimace

Tue 11 Sep 2012 09:24:26 PM
Hi all, it's been a long time since I posted as it has been a while since I have had much progress pics to share on here.

Those of you who watch the forum will know that I have purchased MSS15's K11 Turbo LX recently. My plans are to use some of the super s parts i still have laying around from my other micra to tidy up a few bits and pieces, and make this car a pretty tidy micra.

So here goes :)

Here we are on the first Fuel stop after picking the car up from Brisbane Airport (thanks to MSS15 and her partner Danny for meeting us there).

Then on father's day while visiting the parents, we dug out the super S seats and swapped them over. Thanks to Dad for the hand bolting them in, swapping over seatbelt clips etc.

Then today Jason fitted my old super S cluster and HKS type 2?? (can't quite remember the model) turbo timer with shift light and quarter mile, 0-100km/h timing etc.

Very happy with the progress from relatively low cost options so far. Thanks again to Jason for the work you put in on all my cars/bikes over the years.

That is low cost things except for the sunroof of course!! They're not cheap by any means but worth it for a bloke like me from a time when sun roofs were oh so cool. i.e the 80's n 90's.

Plans include the full Super S door cards and rear quarter plastic panels, coilovers, upgraded fuel rail/intake, change around some of the piping. Quieten the exhaust a little. Optima battery, 2x12" subs, alpine head deck, alpine speakers, retune the Greddy ultimate for new injector setup. Might go for a copper head gasket. Polished valve cover. Strut brace. Oh and a rear wing, either a Nismo or Super S one.

So yeah a few things!

We have since rotated the gauges in the cups, this was just after mounting the cups, not all wiring/sender pipes were hooked up at this particular moment.

In the process we managed to find the interior light fuse was blown, there was corrosion on the plug for the brake fluid level warning sensor which was keeping the brake warning light on.

Here's what the cops see.

So we dragged out an old part I had lying around and this is the result

different throttle body meant that a MAP Sensor, and air temp sensor and different TPS plug/wiring had to be installed. This may effect the cold start quality but hopefully this will be sorted out on the dyno.

Stay tuned for more updates soon.

Ok minor update. All parts for the upgrade have arrived now. Including BC Coilovers from Just Jap and camber bolts, GTiR calipers, rotors, rebuild/seal kit.

Car is off at the moment for some wiring/troubleshooting new throttle body/MAP/Air temp sensor and a tune. Update here as soon as I hear more :)

Where would you mount it?? In the boot?
The intercooler piping is set up the opposite direction to my other setup so this was the best and easily accessible place to put it.

Time for an update. A lot has happened in the past 2 months, to say the least. It's been an adventure that's for sure.

What started as a retune and re-jig of the intake/fuel system has turned into a MAJOR Rebuild.

Basically there was an issue with the head gasket on the dyno and the engine popped on the dyno. Pushing the No.1 Piston down 10 thou. The decision was made to replace the rods and pistons with forged items, so after honing/machining/measuring the rotating assembly was rebuilt and so, so many things tidied up along the way.

Anyways after a LOT of money spent the result is EPIC.

Here's some photos.


The coilovers and brake rotors fitted:

Keep in mind this runs 17" wheels. So the brakes are massive.

So there you have it. You can see the new(old) radiator and new optima battery. The interior has to be tidied up a little in the rear seat area but this will happen soon.

Happy viewing.

Thinkig about selling up..... any interested parties? Please respond with approximate prices you'd be willing to pay.

NO!! I will not part it out. You buy the whole thing.
NSW Rego until Early 2014.

Just testing the waters at the moment, looking to take the "dream car" route and get myself a GTR. (not a R35.... not that rich!)

I believe it was around the 120kw ATW mark. The shop that dyno'd it is hopeless with providing dyno sheets. But when you drive it and tromp second gear it will change half a lane to the left....

Yes this car sold on the weekend to the new owner in the Sydney area.

Unfortunately my passion for Micra's has been forever damaged by a seriously bad experience with a workshop and shoddy workmanship not mention lies and lack of respect. I'd also like to make mention of Shannons Insurance and what is and isn't covered under their "comprehensive" policy. Make sure you clarify what you are covered for when you are getting work done, which in my case is basically nothing.

I am working towards realising a dream of owning a GTR Skyline. Having grown up watching the Winfield/Nissan/GIO godzilla racing in the Group A era, this is a car I have always lusted after, and fortunately I am now in a position to chase the dream.
