And yes, before you ask, I had a mechanically-inclined friend directing my wrenching. And now I can change my oil myself. Will wonders never cease.

And....WTF ever on where Nissan put the damn oil-filter. Which tiny-little-micro-handed engineer thought that was a good idea? I got a pair of baseball-mitts, size XL in Mechanix brand gloves. Fuck where they put that filter.

It really amuses me that you know sooooo much about SE-Rs but this oil filter thing is a new 2013 discovery for you.

This tells me you need VVL.

ps; If you do it again a big flathead screwdriver can help pry the filter loose hands-free

Yes, it amuses me as well. I can talk SE-R all day long. First oil change with my hands in 20-years.

Now I finally have time, tools, and a big-ass workshed (now with actual workspace!) with a fan and a concrete slab.

I also have no time-frame on my work. I can have my SE-R up on stands, in my shed, until I am done. Even if I have to get my buddy Leeroy (serious country-mechanic) over here, make a thread with pictures on the forum, and/or order parts. No problems.

For some reason I have always been intimidated by wrenching on my car. No training, no near-by friends who wrenched, Dad never (ever) wrenched.

Weird because I like working with my hands, and work with wood all the time.

Hell yes, I need a VE. It's next up. Time-frame - when I have the finances.

Changed my distributor o-ring.

For those who want the size, it's 1-5/16 OD, part number 4324.

Drove the XE to work today and turned over 84k. Just getting broken in.

I love the 2.5rs in your pic! I had a 98 2.5rs that was world rally blue with the gold wheels.

Not today, but I picked up this 06 Spec V trans last week for my B13.

Sprung the SE-R from the garage tonight for a liquor store run and had to show a broke ass, lowered 90's Accord who the boss was. Yeah pal, that's a classic tag...

I replaced my alternator today. Just a heads up for those who plan to buy one from Auto Zone, be sure to get a '95+ alternator if you have a low-port. I am not sure if this applies to high-ports.

Ahhh, the simple pleasures in life. An education for the clueless of society, courtesy of your mechanical best friend, AND a liquor store run. PERFECT!
