  1. the Black Engine Bay Masters!

    Nice fitment with the Z32 afm on the factory airbox. Is the egr working? The Z32 AFM is a real tight fit with the factory airbox. No, the EGR (most of it) is just there for appearance sake, it is not connected. What sort of intercooler are you running? what sort of power are you making? Have you had trouble with IAT temps being high with that setup? I'm looking into doing something similar. I'm currently running a cooling pro just jap ARC copy return flow using the stock pipes - I want to avoid having to go front mount or engine bay mount with custom pipes etc but still want to pull reliable 250rwkw or so. Thanks
  2. Gearbox regrets

    Yep. I had this exact same issue. Spent hours on my back trying to line up the box into the shaft, only to realise the brand new nissan brass spigot bearing was installed slightly out of alignment, causing the box to not want to go on. After realising it was something to do with the spigot bush, I tried using a dremel with a drum sander on the end but it didnt make much difference as it was warped quite badly. Luckily i had a spare lying around, so i installed it carefully and box went in sweet after that.

  4. How old are u and what import you drive?

    Great thread! I'm 29. Bought my first 180sx at 18. I've been through a heap of cars since then: About 5 180sx's, GC8 WRX, N14, R34 GTT, R32 gtst, civic vtir, NJ Pajero and SV62 vitara, all bought in various conditions (a couple of rolling shells) and sold for various reasons: travelling, uni fees, wedding, houses, cracking the shits, other investments, etc I currently have a very stock 95 180sx auto which sits at home unregistered and an NJ Pajero for 4x4/camping. Not going to sell the 180sx for a long time as its the cleanest one yet and ive ticked alot of the 'growing up' boxes
  5. WOW - What happened?

    Agreed....also the classifieds section, and off topic for lols
  6. I have a 95 180sx with airbag. It kinda looks like the R33 series 1.5 skyline wheel/n15 pulsar wheel. Would any of these work for me? (sorry for thread hijack)
  7. http://www.nissansilvia.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=534438 I have seen 'Klippan' Australian designed seat belts in pretty much all 180sx's i've seen

  12. 180sx stock VLSD for drifting?

    I put a .8mm shim in my stock 180sx ca18det R200 vlsd 4.3 ratio. It was good at the start, skipped around in the carpark, powered out of corners nicely etc. I did one peanut drift day with near-standard power and it loosened right up, started single legging by the end of the day. Chucked a weldie in and never had a problem single legging
  13. Advice/Opinions on Respray

    I had my R32 GTST resprayed in AH3 factory red by the cheap respray group- Hollylea rd. smash in Campbelltown nsw. The guys fixed a couple of dings and done a closed door for $1400. The finish wasnt great- the detailer left swirl marks but once that was rectified, it turned out awesome. The factory type m skirts, lights, badges, window trims, rear pods were removed for respray. For the price, I couldnt complain.
  14. WOW - What happened?

    I like the consolidation pmod suggested here. Would be good if 'Quick Links' can be customisable (if it isnt already) as it is subjective to the user, or base it on the most frequented areas of the site for that user
  15. WOW - What happened?

    Wow it has died in the ass. All the pics are gone! Such a wealth of information it once was here...and a great laugh too. I hope this forum gets restored to its former glory. The SAU forums seem to be doing it right- simple forum, mobile app, etc I've since moved on to different cars but I always find myself coming back to s-chassis. Gone are the days you could pick up a decent and clean s13/180 for 5k in Sydney
  16. I understand the bell housing pattern would be the same but the shifter itself might be slightly different as it would have to reach right up to the cabin of the van. have a look at this link for a C23 serena trans: http://www.japanautoteile.de/parts/autoparts/Schaltgetriebe-p-147043.html Rear housing looks to be a remote shifter setup. Overall , the length looks to be much shorter than the usual s13/s14 sr20 box,
  17. nope. it shouldnt be running that rich with those mods. i would take a look at the air flow metre first and test that it works please post pics of said conversion. sounds interesting
  18. S14 Sr20DET in 180sx (CA18DET)

    I converted a ca18det 180sx to red top s13 sr20 and it was straight forward. I downloaded both wiring diagrams and worked it out from there with the help of a multimeter. In relation to s14 sr20 motor, I think the major hurdle is the speed sensor for s14 as it runs on a two pulse signal input. check the link below. http://www.freshallo...ire-(-S13-SR20-)
  19. Would love to come but i have to play this one by ear
  20. It's in laws night that night but Ill try and escape early for this
  21. sputtering and misfiring on a hot day

    first instincts point to ignitor. same thing happened on my rb20. i changed everything- coil packs, sparkies, coil loom, CAS. The last thing was ignitor and bam. it was fixed. Im running 18psi through it on stock r34 gtt coil packs, no sweat. if it still misses, try spreading on some dielectric grease in the boots of the coilpacks to stop arcing of the ignition spark.

    That's quite decent for a CA18 AC! I remember getting smoked by mildly modded sr20s when I had my CA lol
  24. Hi, I need to clear some items I have sitting around the house Vertex copy r32 gtst full body kit. Front and sides are drift condition. Hole cut out in side skirt for a side exit exhaust. Front bar requires fibreglassing. Looks to be AH3 red. SOLD R31/VL rb30e gearbox. FS5W71C. I never used it so i dont know the condition of the gears or synchros. They all slot in otherwise. I recommend a new input shaft bearing before use as it feels a little tired. For those that dont know, the rear housing of this box is shorter than the s13 boxes which means it should be good for an ae86/ke sr/ca conversion. Bellhousings are all interchangeable with ca/sr 5 speed. Comes with shifter, all sensors and bearing carrier. $200 sr20 180sx front bar brackets. This allows you to bolt your bumper onto the guards nice and flush. Comes with a random headlight bracket $40 5 puck exedy unsprung clutch and pressure plate suit rb20/25. Still useable. My Verniers are stuffed so i cant accurately measure thickness but it definitely still has a useable amount. $150 R34 gtr nismo oval muffler with a factory butterfly valve. Valve is seized up, needs a good hit of wd40. Overall good cond otherwise. $50 R33/34 manual trans crossmember and mount. Mount not pictured but is sitting in my garage somewhere. Good nick. $40 Set of 18x7 +40 volk te37 copies. 2 are cracked at the lip but still hold air lol. Tyres are shot. $100 Stock s13 front shocks and springs $30 Located in western Sydney, Fairfield area. Will post anything at buyers expense. PM or TXT 04017 555 one two
