my fc3s turboII

Recommended Posts

I have this car for a while now, been sitting in my shed gathering dust! I am back home for a little while so i said id get it back to former glory:cool: I got the car more or less complete minus some rims and seat, so was lucky enough to find a sweet staggered set of advan model 5's 9j et22 and 9j et 10 respectively...the nicest wheels for a fc imo! fitment needs more tinkering but will sort all that when engine is back in and up and running! dsc01951n.jpgdsc01952lh.jpgdsc01953sk.jpg had a fixed back lying around that popped into the vacant hole...love the driving postion in these cant wait to get it on the road! dsc01959d.jpg I got the 13b engine with this car, which was blown. A suspected apex seal failure, i strpped the engine down today to find the apex seals had broken up which lead to heavy damage on the rear rotor and rear rotor housing.Both the rotor and housing would have to be sourced as part of a rebuild which would add to cost. Although think i may have a bare block which was rebuilt a short time ago sourced, so will use this and rebuild my own maybe in the future and keep as a spare. pics of damage dsc01967l.jpgdsc01966si.jpgdsc01960m.jpgdsc01961m.jpgdsc01965h.jpgdsc01964pw.jpgdsc01963x.jpgdsc01962fn.jpg hope to get the new block and have it all back together in a week or two, and then will have it as a road car and but also go to every drift day i can afford!! some of the other spec on the car; Greddy reibac piggy back ECU, Greddy Boost Controller, knights sports fuel cut defender, Straight Through Exhaust, K&N Air filter, Fwin aluminium rad, RE Amemiya Super G Oil Cap, cusco brake stopper, Reconditioned Gear Box with Short Shift, Reconditioned 1.5 Way Diff, Excedy Clutch, HKS Coilovers, Tein anti roll bars, Grooved Brake Discs front and rear, Hawk HP Plus Brake Pads front and rear Strut brace Braided brake lines Rare R-Majic FRP, Skirts, Bumper, Vented Headlight rear spoiler, bn sports wings Greddy Turbo Timer, Greddy Water Temp Gauge, vertical hydro wand, cusco 6 point

Re: my fc3s turboII Wow, that's the worst damage I've seen to rotors/the housing to-date I think! :smt103 Looks well though so will be looking forward to seeing this someday at a meet! :smt023
