S14 M2 drivetrain complete rebuilt, never ran. Phoenix, AZ (


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Regrettably health is requiring me to sell my completely rebuilt by a professional shop, never started S14 drive-train. This motor is set up for a 2002 as it has the 02 oilpan/pick-up, water pump and no P/S. I also had the exhaust header flange moved so I would not have to dent the tube to clear steering. I was also going to run Megasquirt which comes with it (completely built and tested) along with a Jimstim. I am including the exhaust to the rear axle (see header note above) and the tranny tunnel. The tunnel will allow you to run the 265 tranny and still maintain the stock shifter location, it also has the rear shifter mount welded to it. The tranny was sent for rebuild, but no issues were found so I had them reseal only.

I have over $13k invested including price of the motor & tranny and have most receipts. I spared no expense, most bolts/nuts were replaced with parts from the dealer, not Ace hardware. Let me tell you, I really got to know the parts guy! All hoses and even their respective hose clams are new OEM. There are tons of performance parts into this motor, Supertech throughout, fuel rail, ARP, etc. One thing I love, is the 105 amp GM alternator (new) in the stock location, see pictures.

Below is a more complete list I put together of what has been done and also what comes with it. Due to my health I'll be unavailable, but if you have any questions or would like to view, feel free to call my roommate Todd at 480.326.7893. He knows all about the combo and can give more technical information than I could, like specs on the cam. I should be able to return emails, but it might take me some time, brendang2000 at gmail. I will attempt to add a few photos, but if they don't work I can send them to you. I would love to get $10k for this setup, but am willing to accept reasonable offers. Thanks for looking. Brendan
