Hello everyone, I have asked alot of questions on this forum in a little time.. so I live here in NJ and I got a 93 GTS-T. Bored with what's going on in the world so decided to write this . I got my car in june last year , biggest pain was getting car insurance for it . And it came no wing and the rust in the quarter panel.
126001


First thing done was air filter . That part was easy
126003


After that came the cat back exhaust

126007


In the middle of all that the car started to sputter at full throttle so that was time spent figuring that out. Asked on here and got a number of info on what it would be . Ended up. Being the coils . Changed those problem went away .


The car also came with winter wheels and bold tires . Decided it was cheaper just to get rims with tires. Old wheel . Can see the quarter panel rust
126009


Was able to find wheels I like and was lucky they had nismo center caps. New wheels
126020


Then came the rest of the exhaust. Turbo elbow, downpipe and test pipe
126014


But with the test pipe we cut the overheating cat sensor but no lights have come on. I have a question about the dashboard lights but no one here has said anything. Idk what the two light that aren't lighting up are
126015


Now the final part was the intercooler kit just finished yesterday
126021


126017

126018

Had to cut the bumper and the core is off center which is bugging me a little but its together . Next week the heat wrap comes and we'll be wrapping all the pipes .

I have read somewhere that disconnecting the battery positive side and hold the brake resets the ecu but next will be a simple tune . If anyone has little info about what kinda of tune to get done. One shop I've find in NJ works on this car but mainly big build and gtr's so anything will help. Thank you

There is one shop in tr called procomm. Mainly does Subaru builds but does do gtr big builds also. but did the work myself.. found someone here in manahawkin that works for ford and was able to use the shop there for the turbo back . Everything else was in a driveway.

FYI, the gauges look like Defi Racer type independent stepping motors, possibly re-branded. I would look for the corresponding sensors in the engine bay. If those are oil pressure and temperature, more than likely it had a sandwich plate on the oil filter. If it's not there now, it's probably been removed. For the boost, there could be a pressure sensor plumbed into the plenum somewhere.

Damn, that sucks. Defi gauges have a control unit, which may have been removed. Senors might still be in the engine bay though.

Could be. I don't know about the brown box (part of an alarm system?), but the black box and grey plug at the back is a boost pressure sensor. Is it the factory sensor or an aftermarket one? I don't know.

You should try to trace all the wires and see where they go. Might lead to something useful.

Thanks, yeah lots of good stuff to come. Will be tuning again soon. Actually I'm loving the R32 look these days, real nice retro stealth look. Look forward to seeing your build develop.
