***********FOR THOSE THAT ARE LOOKING FOR A BASE MAP FOR YOUR NA-T WITH THE COP IGNITION SETUP. GO TO PAGE 4 POST #57. IT WILL BE AN ATTACHMENT ON THE BOTTOM OF THAT POST***********
Long story short, thought I'd share my build progress and all the few things I’ve done to make my SC more of my style. Started the NA-t swap as my own Bday present to myself, which than of coarse turned into a semi full SC build. As I go along I will post links to all the threads that either gave me some ideas or that have helped me along the way
She’s sits as follows:
-Na-t swap done with AEM ecu. rx7 550cc, XS-power mani, t60-1 garret turbo, tial 38mm gate, 3" Cx racing IC, AEM wideband, glow**** oil and boost gauge.
-Full sound, Kenwood single din radio, clarion amp powering all four mbquart speakers. 5.25 Up front and 6.25" in the rears with custom baffles and 2 10" infinity subs powered by a kicker mono amp. Box still needs to be made for the sub.
-Fatmatted the rear portion of the car along with the gas tank. Doors will be next if i have any left after the trunk.
-Almost done with the two tone tan/black interior with OEM black upper windows trims except the front upper door trim were dyed SEM GM black because I couldn’t find good oem black window trims. Still needs to be put back in after carpet cleaned up and seats put in.
- Traded a turbo for some Megan lp coilovers that are installed but still needs some adjusting.
Most of this build was done at night so sorry for the crappy pics but they should do!
So here it is from start too..... well i guess on going!!

resistor for egr delete
made the downpipe for gate
Manifold wrapped sprayed with exhuast paint and installed
I powder coat my self, so i powder coated the valve covers
DId the distributor delete with the help of this thread
Turbo installed oil pan drilled and flanged up
oil drain made
550cc injectors installed also soldered on some new clips for the hell of it sense I had them laying around
I also replaced all the heaters hoses along with rad and rad hoses
All gaskets where replaced
next up is getting all the IC pipes routed. I decied to go with 2.5" pipes to make it easier to route. and this is a CX racing IC piping kit i got and ended up using the cheapo BOV for now until i can find a nice used one. this was the longest parts of the swap i think.
and i just realized that I didnt take to many pics of this parts lol
Had my buddy weld up all the pipes
mean while Installed and wired the map
And that is basicaly it for the "nat-t" might of missed a few things but thats the basics for a na-t daily for fun driving to work Ill get better pics of the engine bay during the day. looks much much clearner.
oh an some pics of the CPS installed
I guess Parts II:
Coil overs recieved and installed and of coarse forgot to get a pic of the car on the ground
centor console got started.
Radio guages and AC unit all in one. AC unit got LEDs soldered
Single din mount frame was faberglassed to 3 guage pod mount which was trimmed and fitted.
the rest of the baffles with speakers installed and a realy crappy pic of the fatmat installed in the rear of the car along with the rear speaker deck
Also started to make the amp rack that is glued to the gas tank. Got this idea off another member and it actually worked out really nice. not as good as what he did but it still worked out real nice for me i also fatmatted mine instead of used some clothe http://www.clublexus.com/forums/lexu...rsion-2-a.html
Made a harness from the OEM speakers wires and 12v+ switched to the amp to keep everything nice and tight. Eveything still needs to be all ziptied into place
2guage power wire to a splitter than running 2 4guage power wires to the amps. and two 4guage grounds for the amps. Gave the systema check and all is good. Just need a little bit of an amp tune up and good to go. Later on my buddy with help me make a fiber glass box for 2 10" inifitny subs when he gets time.
next thing up is to clean up the carpet and replace the nasty torn up oem seats with some rsx black seats utilizing the oem rail.
That install on the tank looks familiar. . I never had any issues with my amps back there. Install looks great. I'm going to post some new pics on the install I'm working on now in my new car. Take a look when you get chance, think you'll like it.

I was scratching my head for about hour putting the amps here and there than I did a quick search to see what others did and yours was the easiest way of doing it and about 10 bucks in materials. It also make the amps accessible along with the coil overs. Iíll check it out! Thanks for the idea

It worked out great; just make sure you use some industrial glue! I think I almost used about a full bottle just to be safe

LIke wise! actually where the sig ligher is, I put my manual boost gauge *** there so when you pop open the ashtray its right there. I'll get pics of that later on.
So I was messing around with the RSX seats and the oem rails lastnight and I dont think its going to work becuase it makes the seats way to high and the seats I got dont have the oem rsx sliders on them. Im gunna tray and source some out or even found some sparco rails and see how I can use those to mount them. I was hoping to use the oem SC rails and have a switch for the motor to move them back and forth but its just way to high.
