All,

I was just over at Mossy Performance and found out that Greg has some complete suspension kits for B12s made by NISMO.

It comes with struts and springs and an upper perch I believe. Greg has a limited number of these sets (about 4 sets) and is selling the complete kit for $500. The struts are 4 way adjustable as well.

Just thought some of you may be interested in it.

Here's their number:
866-55-MOSSY

Mine shipped today. Total was $561 shipped including Heavy Duty shock mounts. I'll post pics and give impressions when they get here. Bang for the buck, this is the best suspension you can get.

If you look closely at the last picture I posted it says KYB, just like Charles and I mentioned before. The air damn is both the same as Charles and Josh (Dropped89).

Just got the Nismo Suspension kit from Mossy Nissan today. At a glance, the struts seem to modified to provide additional travel. The springs are very interesting too. Although I havent been able to figure out which end is top or bottom on the spring. (directions are in Japanese! gotta love it.)

I can't wait to get these on the B12, (although i'm going to have to). Sounds like we have a good ol' suspension shoot out on our hands. KYB/GC V. Nismo? Loser gets sold on ebay! hahaa

:D

You know what I had to go and do fifty push ups to calm down enough to type this letter. When I had seen your pretty silver car I was so happy for you I could scream. I have a pretty silver car too. I have a carbureted model that is on it's third carb at $1,300.00 a carb and it needs another. I had considered an E15t swap since this is what I had seen another persons documents on the internet, but this was a flop. I had considered a E16i swap, but this was a flop. I had considered converting the E16s to an E16i, this was also a flop! I will tell you why. . . Maybe around where you live you have a car club or group of close knit individuals with extensive mechanical knolege and expertice working with these cars, where I live I cannot find a specialty or custom job race shop anywhere. All of them between Maryland, Virginia, and D.C. are out of bussines. So this leaves me no option because shops here will only do O.E. like repairs. Even the dealer said no, and I know they could do it! I have no clue where the wire harness disappears to once it climbs under the dash if I may mention. I am an operations manager at UPS so mechanical things are not my practice. I will now close this post to submit P.2

So, let me get this right. You are upset with me because I have a modified B12? It is correct, I had a close knit group of Nissan friends at the time, and a shop to use to do the swap. But it was still done by myself, and it was the first 1.6 to 2.0 swap done in my Nissan club. I'm sorry for your unfortunate circumstance, but as stated in earlier posts, with a littel research and resourcefulness, A CA18DET swap could be done very easily without the need for friends or a shop. By the way, for a good VA shop, check out Rosen Autosport. Very familiar with SR20 swaps, they may be a bit pricey, but it can definitely be done. I still fail to see the real point of your post other than the fact that both of our cars are silver? Best of luck, and get a couple more pushups in for me too, I'm gettin fat and lazy in my increasing age.

I see this poor little car as so worthy of being re-born it truthfully just SITS here on the drive way. I rinse it off time to time and open the windows on hot days, but this is it. I am so thrilled when I see a nice one I allmost loose it. To see this car will make any B12 lover (including males) have a baby! I have added this site so you could see it. . .

I got it used in 1992 and so far with 77k miles and Nissan dealer maintained, the dealer is puzzled as to why the carbs keep going bad in MY car. After contacting Nissan about this issue they did admit the carb was a bad product, but there were no recalls at this time and nothing they could do to lighten up the price of a new one. Yes the car runs, but no cigar here pal. The last time I drove it was to take pictures of it because I had promised two people I would send them pictures and it seemed like forever. I am a busy man though. I mailed them to a guy named Charles and a guy named Jason, two of the Sentra network guys. To see this car you could only say man this thing needs help a car like this should not be rotting away in on the drive way. I keep it up it has no rust no dents no leaks. The paint is going, it is all stock besides a header, upgrade c.d. player, dash kit, and upgrade speakers. The interior is pristine condition, but the outside is over run with spider webs in the wheel wells and on the bumpers. oh and the tires are brown now, WOW. I just do not want it to be like my dads 68 GTO full race a REAL 8 second car that truely died when he and my mom got divorced I hope the old SE does not get that bad. [email protected] I just wish my car looked as shiny and nice wheels and stuff like yours. H-E-L-P-! ME.

NO WHAIT WHAIT WHAIT HOLD ON!!!

No I did not know you were on line no I am not angry with you in any way. I am giving you mad props, when it comes to love you are "the skys the limit" I just wish I had friends with your B12 ability. I am not a enemy maker please forgive me if I offended you or anybody that is reading this post, sorry. I'm just a toad prince that wishes he has a nice B12 too. -87

No offense taken. No problems, no need to be a toad. First, I'm a little mad here, whats the deal with the steering wheel and arm rest in the console, I don't have those? And your dash and glove box area on the pass side is different. I want one.Honestly, I don't have alot of time to type out all of the posabilities for your car. There are several. You are correct, that is a fine specimen of a B12, no need to let it go to waste. Other options have been discussed in other posts. Take your time reading through them. There are many. Instead of replacing the carb again, I would go all out on the CA18DET swap, or at least the CA18DE. Several people have successfully completed this swap and have had zero issues with the custom mods that Charles, Mario, and I had to do with the SR20's. After you have read up, please feel free to ask any specific questions. When I get back in town in a week or so, I'll be more than happy to discuss specifics. Take care and good luck. BTW, sorry, for the misunderstanding, no hard feelings.

Hey bro I'm no enemy!

Really power buiding is not what I was after (unlike most people) I was told by Nissan that the carbs were just plain bad. After seeing the E16i to E15t swap on an 88 B12, I said cool. I just wanted a fuel injected motor. If both cost the same and the same amount of effort has to be expended to install them why not get the 100hp E15t instead of the 70hp E16i. No I am not a radical out there dropping VG30tt and Chevy big-block V-8's into a Sentra, even a SR20 or CA18 is way too much for me. I want a motor that will mount directly up to the pre-existing tranny. I had seen your pics and was dazzled back to the old days when my car was nice and ran nice. I allways wished I had wheels but I never bought any. Considering I have a whopper mortgage, a B15, and an A33 I do not have much money to spend on trail and error, it will have to be right the first time. My family tells me to junk that old thing but I insist not to adhere to their silly demands. I was just saying in my own crazy way that guys like you inspire me to keep this old relic and fix it up! I do not hate any of you so just be cool. I was not ragging on you because of your pals having the ability to work on cars, I see this as a plus because those are the kinds of things I am interested in. I have no group of B12 fanatics here, I am on my own. Bummer but true.
I love you car skilled guys, I am a car dufus.

Just crushed fifty more pushups, WHEW!

But the dealer said that only the E motors would mount directly up to the tranny. So this would be easy for my car to accept. Actually the E15t was cheaper than the E16i and has 30 more hp. I had done a bit of basic research on it but none on the 1.8 and 1.8t I just know that the 1.8 was in the 89-90 USA Pulsars and the 1.8t was in the EXA Pulsars that is it. Man this car needs two new axles, a new o2 sensor, a new cat, and a new carb. I just wanted fuel injection instead of this carb. The B12 needs a doctor, is there a doctor in the house? I wanted to sell it in 1994 but not a soul would pay $3,000.00 for it with 56k miles hell I paid $3,000.00 for it with 50k miles on it and put 6k on it. I live 5 miles from my job that is 10 miles a day. This is odd my play brother's name is Jon i'v known him since 1982. Your dash looks different? I thought they all looked the same? :eek:! I will try to find this shop in VA. Thank you for, DAGGIT I just got caught on line this girl instant messages me to death man why did I not set it to appear offline UUUUUUUUUGHHHHHHHHH. I gotta run fast! LOVE YOU GUYS, I'll hit you back Nissmo Driver. NNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO she just got me ooooouuullyyghh! #@!#$%^&(*)_+=!!!!!!!
