Shop mechanic Tyler Alexander began with a standard s13 Coupe with the hopes of building it into something he could take to the track and drift. On this page you will be able to follow the build and see the parts he put into his beloved "Lucifer" as he calls it.
It began with installing golden parts shop max pro coilovers
The next two steps were more of appearance modifications where Lucifer was painted a plum purple and given 15" rota wheels
When it finally came time for Lucifer to earn something a little faster Tyler thought back on a previous build he had done with a s13 which had a JDM SR20 red top motor.(pictured below is a burnout which took place on a mountain in Pigeon Forge)
We were able to track down the car that he had previously built with the SR20 and buy the motor and the 5-lug conversion kit off of the seller.
After about a month of pounding on the SR20 the motor finally began to lose compression and Tyler found himself without a motor again. Upon Disassembling the motor he found the problems to be warped cranks, pistons, and rods. In simpler terms, a cooked motor that needed to be rebuilt.
It was now that it was decided to build the SR20 motor into a motor powerful enough to go drifting and hang corners like needed to be.
Parts for the build of the entire car consist of:
Max solid subframe mounts and solid differential bushing
Keisler automotive angle kit
SR20 bored to SR22
Turned and polished crank
Eagle H-Beam forged rods
Wiseco 9:1 forged pistons
Tomei 3 layer metal head gasket
Brian Crower valve springs
Brian Crower retainers
Brian Crower Valves
Full valve job
Freddy(knockoff Greddy) intake manifold
Tomei M8270 turbo
Full stand alone ecu
The most recent piece to be added to the build is a pignose bumper and lip.
