  2. rims for a r34 25gt

  3. S15 FMIC

    its a pretty simple mod, take off your front bar measure and cut front reo so the front mount fits take out battery and either relocate to the boot and put it in sideways cut a hole with a holesaw into the battery tray, obviously check where its gonna sit from the piping connect up and check for leaks put everything back together
  4. Tail lights on when car is off!?!?! HELP

    its your brake light stopper. jump in your footwell and push the brake pedal back towards the firewall, you will see it connect with a small shaft coming out of the switch, just find a small bolt or glue another piece onto your pedal. just make sure if you put a bolt its not too long and holds your brakes on while your driving
  5. Speedo

    speedo sensor mate, its attached to your gearbox http://lmgtfy.com/?q=s14+speedo+sensor more than likely just need a new one, should be able to pick it up off any wreck. try nisswreck for starters they have a good supply of nissan parts. otherwise try chris"s jdm sale page on facebook heaps of import shit there
  6. battery location

    is there a reason why? from what ive read batteries are better off in the boot as they get less heat and therefore last longer?
  7. I reversed into a parked car this morning in my ute, no one was around so I left a note to call me. damaged the front quarter panel of this guys subaru but no damage to my ute. do I call my insurance company or will old mate call his and I pay his excess? not really sure how it works??
  8. chasing advice; re: insurance

    ah ok, i have my own insurance so his insurance company will call mine and i will pay excess for my insurance right?
  9. Plastdip who rates it

    i have it on the wheels of my d40 navara, i didnt use the gloss can over the top and it faded within a week and now looks like balls, my friend did the same but put the plasti dip clear coat (or glossifier whatever its called) over the top and his looked great for months before he took it off
  10. hi there, few years back when i made this account i did indeed have a purplesil80, i sold it after owning it a few years and moved on in my life for a while. one day while randomly trolling eBay i searched for 180sx's and in popped this little bad boy... The new car, a red CA18Det powered 180sx. This car is literally as old as me being a 1989 model, stock side mount intercooler still on it from factory. It even has (had*) the stock gay ass speedo bell that goes off after you go over 107 km/h The price was right and I couldnt help myself, so me and the mrs jumped on a plane to melbourne and picked it up. Drove it back to brisbane. Then from brisbane to townsville a few weeks later, its currently a daily and i plan on keeping things simple with nice tasteful mods! Ok mod list *GT2860r (8000km old) *52mm alloy radiator with thermo *N*Power 3" dump *Full stainless exhaust *Braided turbo lines *Brand new xtreme h/duty clutch *Dobinson springs with KYB adustable shocks *Front and rear strut braces *Apexi turbo timer *Autometer boost gauge *SR20DET brakes TO DO LIST Install FMIC that came with the car as a brand new part BOV Fix various shit thats wrong; ie left hand headlight opens but wont close have to wind it down, fuel gauge doesnt work, water temp gauge doesnt work. ROTA Grids - unsure of what size yet. Fix shitty paint on front and rear bars. Thanks for looking, I will keep this updated as things progress!!
  11. Purplesil80's.....not so purple sil80..

    few updates, nothing too major - i fixed a connection in behind the cluster that was stopping one of the backlights from lighting up, and changed the gearbox oil as it hadn't been changed since i bought it a year ago relocated battery to the boot, pretty happy with the way it turned out other new stuff is a water temp gauge and boost gauge that my wife bought me for christmas, they're just no name cheapy stuff but seem to be working well at the moment also got a chance to paint my front bar, i just followed a mighty car mods diy video to give it a go, suprisingly turned out quite well for my first crack at something like this
  12. My Sileighty aka Noah

  13. NISSAN 1999 parts

    "Car has had a accident which resulted in getting the roof cut off to make removal of items easier" did those items happen to be human beings?
  14. Purplesil80's.....not so purple sil80..

    Will do, cheers!
  15. Purplesil80's.....not so purple sil80..

    well i had planned on relocating to the boot, but everything ive read regarding the hole in the battery tray is very indecisive about wether or not it is actually legal. so im thinking i might give an engineer a call and just ask, if thats the case ill get the hole engineered and relocate to the boot. bought a new headlight motor today as my old one was farked!
  16. Purplesil80's.....not so purple sil80..

    finally got around to installing the fmic that came with the car check out my sweet bunnings-spec mounting haha. good easter weekend mod though, i need to grab a BOV, but as far as i know its not COMPLETELY necessary if im not running huge amounts of boost? could anyone confirm that?
  17. Just another JDM s13

    still got that gktech no hole intercooler hanging around?
  18. 180sx S13 Silvia & Stagea Parts - $10

  19. Tips for removing trims in 180sx

  20. S15 side mount into s13 CA?

  21. ♥ Nissan 180SX ♥

    Looks great mate! Any idea what offset those wheels are?
  22. Ca18de s13 manual daily fuel consumption?

    Wow that is under 10L/100km... I assume the tank is 50L? Could be 55L but i have always been unsure. My CA18DET gets on average 360km per tank, sometimes more if i baby the car but that is with 16psi boost and a T28. im running a t28 too, but on stock boost with stock smic still in the car. im also unsure of tank size, i think its actually 60L?

    replaced intake manifold gaskets over the weekend....first time attempting it and i have to say i did not enjoy it hahaha. got my mrs to undo some bolts cause i couldnt fit my gigantor hands in some spots
  24. Ca18de s13 manual daily fuel consumption?

    My ca18det gets 500km or more a tank brus so you got something going wrong there, follow what bling said hopefully it improves for you!
