Robert137 posted a topic in Nissan Silvia (nissansilvia.com)Hey guys just have some questions here in regards to choosing my first silvia. Sorry if this is in the wrong section! Alright, im currently looking to buy a silvia s13. But here in perth, (decent and cheap) s13s are becoming extremely difficult to come by. Im looking to spend less than 3500. The plans/objectives for the car will just be a clean turbo/manual daily driver that i can enjoy and have fun in (No track use). There are 4 choices as you all know (from factory) are: - turbo/ manual - turbo/auto - non turbo/manual - and the worst of the bunch - auto/non turbo I would MAYBE do a manual/T swap IF i chose auto/NA later on.. but that means more $$$ and im very unsure about any legality issues that would arise by swapping the factory sh1t out (yellow sticker??). the best option is to obvs go manual/turbo but they are simply so bloody hard to find for that price, the same can go for the manual/NA sometimes. there are some cheap auto/NA's around but that means more work and $$ in the future. is it really worth it??? and alot of these auto/NA's are unrego'ed aswell, which makes it even more difficult to chose if its cheap... i really dont know what to do haha, what do you guys recommend i really look for? are there gonna be any legal troubles if i choose a Non Turbo/auto and eventually do a Manual T conversion?? or is the only real option to wait and keep looking for a NON AUTO...? ps. im not a P plater lol and i havent really done an engine swap before! thanks guys
Hey guys, new on the forum, just bought a 180 with some good starter mods (IMHO). I've worked in automotive for a while, done some hardware tech and now diesel fitting and like to mess around refinishing things so I hope i can be of some use. Ive got many questions but firstly, where to get a new genuine and well priced fuel reg? Ebay is a minefield... I want to make sure my fuel system is performing so will be throwing in a walbro and want to confirm pressure / run at top end of factory tolerance for cheap insurance and piece of mind. No, i wont be trying to max out the injectors, just paranoid Oh ok while i'm here, i have r33 4 pot fronts (sumitomo) on the 180 and need to know what hubs they are for bearing replacement, sorry dont have photos yet... Good start hey?! Happy holidays.
Robert137 posted a topic in Nissan Silvia (nissansilvia.com)Hey guys, new to nissan silvia and just looking for a bit of advice.. ive been on here while but never really made any posts. im thinking about buying a S13(possibly r32) and doing a lot of DIY work just to learn a bit and understand how they work. Im new diy work and have never really done much with cars. im a young apprentice electrician, so im not exactly loaded with cash. but im very interested in engine/mechanical sort of work and its something id love to do as a lifelong hobby. bit of a weird question but here goes: should I look for a cheap, running S13, not exacty in top engine condition, and learn to do a bit of DIY sort of stuff myself? Or should I spend a little more in looking for a good s13 that’s more reliable and then do it up myself,? other thing is, or should I buy an R32 (Rb20), play with that and learn a little bit; and then eventually swap an SR into it? .…- doesn’t seem to be too many around and probably not experienced to that but R32’s are becoming harder to find and I just thought that would be a way to have an older/unique sort of car with an awesome setup. (car will be more a weekender and project…. But cant be an absolute lemon that it wont run and be rendered undrivaeable lol) ps, im new so don’t flame me, just looking for a bit of advice thanks guys!
