I was/am in the exact same position as you. 180sx and was looking at getting hold of some cheap s15 injectors to spin 200rwkw, but from all my research looking at dynos of sr20det with s15 injectors the most they seem to spin up is 170-180rwkw before maxing out. So I decided to just bite the bullet and buy some nismo 740cc.So I would get 550cc or 740cc personally. Ebay sells the yellow tip refurbished 550cc injectors for pretty cheap like $300. Maybe get those.

yeah i think i will have to, im nearly there once i get the injectors and get Nistune all thats left is tuning.
i think ill go with 740cc in case i need more power in the future.
i see ur from Vic, same as me, any track days that u know of? keen to go to a track day when the 180sx is up to scratch.....

I quite run down on my story. Started like everyone else; started lifting to get "in shape" so girls would like me. Went in circles for about 3 years and didn't really make progress. Got a bit stronger, but didn't look much different. Didn't take diet serious at all.

Finally pushed myself out of my comfort zone and cleaned up my diet. Ate things I didn't want to and stopped eating things I did want to. This forced/motivated me to train properly as well so I wasn't wasting my time.

Got to a point where I was happy with how I looked, and felt fit and healthy. Well fitter and healthier than when I was lazy. However I was too focused on the weights and number. Took a while, but finally realised fitness is more than just spending an hour a day in a gym, and then sitting down all day in an office.

Starting hiking, walking when possible, riding a bike for transport. Overall I feel much more balanced in terms of general fitness. I can hike up a mountain with a weighted vest, rep out chin ups, deadlift 2.5x body weight and go for a 2 hour ride without a problem.

So I thought what next. The hell with it, I'll give competing a go. May as well put all the training to use.

I'm the guy with no hair (on my head). It was gruelling and something I don't think I'll do again. But I can now tick it off.

the Earls lines I have are fine, but the fittings supplied were rubbish.

Agree on the straight fittings being a pain to get everything to fit. my water line from the block comes straight out and loops around and under the turbo inlet then into the turbo. Dont even get me started how much of a fucking pain the other water line is on the back of the block.

You think someone would have done the homework on this and got it right from the start with the length, especially when we are paying top dollar for braided lines...

$200 isn't "top dollar" when it costs over $300 in good compoents, then add labour, then add profit. We've got it right but would you pay $450 for a set of top quality braided lines?

$200 is very cheap for braided lines, what i am saying is if im paying close to $300 bucks for Earl braided lines, i would like my fittings to last more than 12 months, as seems like people are having problems with Earls lines.....
In this day and age everyone is building these cars on a budget as people have families and other expenses, so all im saying is i would like to get what i pay for.....
