My sr20det swapped 240 has a odd tapping noise. It is most loudest when the engine is cold. It is heard the loudest when in 3rd+ gear between 2800-4000rpm and with light acceleration. It isn't very loud at WOT. The sound is also louder than is the video. It dampened it a little.
Dodge Magnum S2000 HID projector retrofit into aftermarket headlights
I retrofitted some Honda S2000 projectors into some ebay CCFL headlights for my 2006 Dodge Magnum. The original projectors that were in the aftermarket headlights used 9006 bulbs and had HORRIBLE light output. Far lower than the OEM headlights. I am considerate to other people on the road so I didn't just drop in some crappy Plug-N-Play hid kit into the OEM headlights.
The CCFL rings are bright and I don't know how to get the camera to show them properly but they look awesome in person.
99 Infiniti i30 Hid retro and hid fogs
1999 Infiniti i30 with e46 4300k bi-xenon hid retrofitted into Nissan Cefiro headlights. Fogs are h3c 3000k hid bulbs. The corner turn lights are moded to turn on with fog lights (they originally came on only with it's respective side signal light). Fogs are also moded so that they can be turned on with only parking lights.
BladeZ Powerkart with a slightly modded gx200 clone
BladeZ Powerkart with a clone gx200 engine. The head and flywheel were swapped with those of a gx160 to increase compression and advance timing. Exhaust was custom built by a friend and carburetor was swapped with a gx390 which the entire intake manifold was swapped and the intake filter is mounted to a velocity stack made for the carburetor. I also installed a pulse Mikuni fuel pump.
This kart was stored for around 3 years UPSIDEDOWN!!! so all the oil went in the intake and Exhaust. The smoke went away after about 30 minutes of idling. It was only driven once and was terrifying. The chain broke and then it sat for 3 years.
I have finally purchased a chain and might post a vid of it running.

240sx SR20det idle problem
Please help, this is my daily driver. i think it may be a vaccum line, but it could also be a number of things.
I'm not entirely sure if its a valve, or lifter or rocker just yet. But I had timing chain work done since I broke a chain guide. It was never out of time but getting it back together and driving it a little I hear this. It idles fine, has decent acceleration response, it DID however lose a little bit of power.
Found out it was the lash adjusters, a couple got seized.
SR20DET NVCS gone bad
These are the sounds a badly worn NVCS sprocked is making in a fully build Nissan SR20DET Black Top engine. NVCS sprocket had aprox 170.000km on it when it started to go from fairly unnoticable to plain bad during a course of about 1500km. It is happening because the rubber seals inside it starts to fail. You could buy a new sprocket which could last next 150.000km, or 15.000km (and the sound is back). There are some reports of people succesfully replacing the rubber seals for cheap fix tho. Even with the sounds the performance of the engine remained the same.
NVCS stands for Nissan Variable Cam System.
I hope this video will help people with similar problems identify the weird sounds our engines are making from time to time. Other similar sounds may be produced by bad lifters, main bearings, timing chain and the solenoid activating the NVCS. You will find a lot more information about these issues in various forums around the internet.
Sorry about the poor mobile phone video quality.
S14 Timing or VTC noise
