    Sure is mate, has around 180,000kms on it but was always very quiet and looks in good condition. Does need a shim though.

Not too keen on selling the wheels just yet unless you offer an ok price. I think thats basically it. Or if anyones keen they can buy all that stuff installed on my SR20DE manual Silvia :-P
  5. Wheels, Tyres and suspension needed

    Wheels: 17inch wheels should suit your car, and since 15's were available from factory (on other variants) 2 inchs up will be fine. Rotas and XXR's are fine, cheap and cast but fine as long as they are treated normally. There are plenty of places to buy them online for a better deal than ozzy etc. Tyres: In regards to grip, the biggest factor will always be tyre design. Buying a good quality tyre in whatever size you need will always put you in good stead. Think federal 595 range, bridgestone potenza's, kumho ku31, and others in michelin/dunlop etc. Width does not always equal grip either, especially in wet conditions as the tyre has to expel the water from the centre of the contact patch. This is one of the reasons why a car can be over-tyred, that is, wider tyres than it really needs. Even in dry conditions having a super wide tyre can be detrimental to handling. For a car like yours, a 225 section tyre should be heaps. Personally I like having same size tyres (and brand/model for that matter) on each corner to keep the car well balanced.
  6. Oval Exhaust System

    Sup. I reckon oval pipe will flow slightly less than a round tube. The reason I think this is because of the boundary layer of gas that will adhere to the inner pipe wall surface. As fluid flows through a pipe there is velocity profile across the cross section of the diameter, with higher velocity in the center and slower flow along the wall (since the surface isn't perfectly smooth/frictionless). Boundary layers tend to grow outwards from the pipe wall, and the distance from the wall will correspond to a velocity for a given fluid at a certain temperature. By changing the geometry you are reducing the area for faster moving gas to flow. You could think of it as the internal friction increasing in the exhaust in a way..

    Yes still got them
  8. Another eBay welder thread

    Since it seems like you have common sense I'm sure it'll be fine for what you want. Obviously it wont be as awesome as an AC/DC machine with a foot pedal. Another con is that welding parts in/onto your silvia would be difficult. I've been looking into buying a cheap TIG and this is the unit I settled on (but probably wont buy just yet). I reckon go for it!! And put some pics up of the welds you're doing with it

  11. How strict are the cops about speeding here?

    Fairly similar to NSW cops. Don't do retarded stuff, and don't be a dick when they pull you over and they will treat you fairly.

  15. Passing Rego.

    They wont pick the difference between a T28 and the standard T25. If it makes you feel better I sold my last car (180sx) with NSW rego and the dude that bought it had to change it to ACT. It had coilovers, adjustable castor arms, strut braces, T28, aftermarket manifold, exhaust with big twin tips (pretty quiet though), Hicas delete, different seats, and a few other things, and it got passed by Dickson the second time after it was rasied and some minor stuff fixed.
