Default Time Capsule

Ok guys have been on this site for quite a while without a serious project, although I still have my 92 d21(first car) I havenít been able to decide on what to make of it. I wanted LS swap than changed to VG33 with a Z32 5speed but all that has changed or put on the back burner AGAIN actually. I found a TIME CAPSULE 1989 two door gem, this truck is mint I canít believe how new it is


The paint is rough on the hood and has a small bubble on the upper cab post bu it is all there more pics to come

The engine is toast, the original owner ran it low on oil I believe and developed a rod knock the mechanic said, so I found an Xterra engine and I’m doing a VG33 swap now. It’s amazing how clean the original engine is, looks better than the good running Xterra engine


Hers the zero mile lookin beast. So sad

Anyone with info on the swap feel free to chime in. I need help with the TBI goodness and help with exhaust manifolds or any affordable headers

There are two threads here that involve the VG33 swap. One is by deerhurst and the other is jp2code.

The guy who sold it to me called me with some bullshit this week. So I low ball the guy on the truck and he agrees with the price because he couldn’t find the title, he ends up give me a bill of sale with my name and a copy of the title and his signature. So now the cock sucker calls me and says he found the title and wants 150 for it

Perhaps he wanted to ask your avatar out on a date but got nervous at the last minute...

Either way, that sucks man. You agreed on a price and a sale is a sale. Even if the vehicle is still technically in his name that's a dick move. I don't know how the laws are down in FL but perhaps you could get an affadavit or something.
