Got my digi cluster wired in and swapped over! I think I'll do a short write up on my experience as it was much easier than I thought it was going to be!

Apparently I only took a video on snap chat so I'll have another one soon but this is it just making sure tach works cause my car didnt have one originally.

I've never owned a B13 4dr, and I think some look really good'n'classy.

Plus I can swap in my current SR20DE into one if/when I do a VE in the rallyx car.


Seems the world is waking up to 4 door b13 goodness. Only bad part about them are the seat belts, otherwise once setup and modded makes for one killer sleeper car. Nobody ever sees the 4 door coming, and can't believe it once they see you going.

After driving to work, I saw that my car is leaking coolant.

It seems to be one of the two hoses shown here, probably the fatter one behind the oil filter bracket, based on the puddles.

Gonna order these silicone hoses from Greg V. and maybe also a thermoblock spacer.

Apparently, the hoses easiest to get to when the IM is removed. Also, some people have to remove the oil filter bracket in order to remove the IM.

Since I only planned to drive the SE-R through the warmer months anyway, I'll be tucking it away until I fix it and weather is good.
Hopefully that's before winter.

Good call @1fastser

Most folks will tell you to avoid silicone hoses because they slip more easily than rubber. Your call on what part to replace them with. I would buy OEM if possible.

I would stick with OEM as well.

Thanks for the advice. Checking to see if it's available locally now.

if you buy the correct type of t-clamps I don't see how they will slip?
Those cheapy clamps (usually come with the kit) don't put equal amount of pressure around ANY type of hoses. The newer nissan style clamps suppose to do similar job as the t-clamps without the bolt though. AKA do it right the first time and don't be cheap and it shouldn't slip.
OEM type can only go so far when compared to Silicone (don't get me wrong, I'm a big oem whore too haha.)
