I didn't get around to taking pictures off my phone until now, a step back in time but stock frame has to go. I appreciate all the comments.

Yes it is an explorer 8.8, cut down so its even on both sides, LSD and disk brakes.

I have had my SR20 for just over 8 years, I put maybe 1500 miles on it since I got it. All my problems seem to be computer related or starting. I never heard weird sounds, found metal in the oil or looked like I had a 5 alarm fire from smoke comming out the exahust. From everything I was told in Japan it cost too much to run an engine past 50,000km. Its like you had to replace the cat and all emissions related items. It was cheaper to buy a new car than get the old one refitted for inspection.

If I got an engine with only 50,000km I figure I am lucky because I can't believe everything I was told. If I had the choice would I do it again, probalby not but you never know. You can get almost as much power from the 2.4 after you turbo charge it correctly, about the only thing I can say is with stock internals the SR20 can hold more power before it goes boom, but eventually both will grenade if you dogg them too much.

For me it was wanting something different with great power potential and to keep a Nissan motor, I wanted an RB but in FL you need A/C. Unless you got mad money you couldn't have both (not saying its not possible but too costly for my taste). I have seen one hardbody with an RB26 in it. It was not running and didn't even have the turbos installed much less any electrical stuff. His firewall was pushed back at least six inches and if he had to replace the rear spark plug he had to remove the wiper cowl first.

I just hope once I am able to drive it on a normal basis I will be happy with the overall outcome.
