  1. DGR s14 coilovers,might fit s15 I'm not not sure, Like new,were fitted on a project car to roll itaround the backyard Sunnybank,make a decent offer!
  2. Hi guys had a few silvias and 180's in my time but only recently decided to start a build thread: I purchased my stock standard unregistered 1989 ca18de auto Qs series S13 for $1800 (probably too much), It had been sitting for around 2 years, was in average condition body wise but the underneath was straight and clean, was running rough and the guy i bought it of told me the auto stalled. I picked up the keys went and bought a new battery and it started first shot too the sellers surprise, i drove it home (10 minute drive) with absolutely no problems other than the auto holding gears for too long. Being a P Plater i didn't want to go turbo, My plans were to just chuck a manual box in and some coilers and put it on club rego. The car club i joined was an hours drive from my house, which is were all the problems arose. Because the car had been sitting for so long the petrol was obviously going to be foul, the fuel gage was just above empty so i thought id just top up instead of draining it, After I filled up with petrol and stopped at the next set of lights the revs were dropping and the car would shake as if it was about to stall, from there on overtime i had to stop or slow down the car would stall, so for the rest of the drive id brake with my left foot while accelerating with my right foot trying to keep the car going (was very stressful). Got to the car club they looked over it gave me the paperwork and of i went to Vicroads to pickup my plates. Left the car at my mums house not wanting to drive it because it was stuffed, looked around for a CA18 manual or even bell housing with no luck (I'm very impatient). I found a few sr20de and box combos but no one would separate them, so i was contemplating just doing an sr conversion, but my daily is an n/a s15 and i wanted something different to that. After looking all over the internet I came across a guy who had a smashed r33 gts rb25de manual that had taken a front left hit, it was in a towing yard and had been for 3 weeks, he wanted $1500 for it but ended up giving it to me for the price of the towing and storage fee roughly $800. I had the r33 towed to my mates shop Australian Speed And Custom where it sat up back and we gutted it to a bare shell within the week, I kept what I needed for the rb swap, sold whatever I could then I scraped the rest. Had pretty much brand new HSD coilovers which I traded to Elliot the shop owner who was doing the conversion for his labour. Next was removing the ca and auto, sold that straight away, then put the r33 cross member and steering rack in. Cross member was out by a few mm probably slightly bent from the accident so we slotted the mounting holes and made it fit. I traded the brake setup (4 stud) for a 52 mm r33 rad. Put the RB25DE in and realised the bonnet wouldn't shut, the new radiator also wouldn't fit as it was too high. Did some reading and found that and r32 cross member will sit the engine lower and further back, out came the hammer to massage the tunnel as the bell housing was now touching it, After "massaging: the tunnel the motor and box now fit and the bonnet would shut. Also had Elliot make up a custom gearbox mount. Found a guy on the drift sales page on Facebook who had a Type X and wanted to swap for an s13 front so I jumped all over that and chucked it straight on the guards had a few dents and the brackets holding the bar were missing but a few cable ties later and it all fit up nicely. Next was waiting for the auto elec to come wire it up so the motor had a full service, after the custom loom was done, it was time to test if it all worked.... it didn't, the engine was cranking but it would not start. There was spark, there was fuel in the rail and the injectors were pulsing, but it just wouldn't start. Changed the fuel pump to an r33 pump to see if that was the problem, still not working. Pulled the rail out replaced injectors, but they still weren't squirting. Had the auto elec come back in and check everything, 3 hours later realised the injectors weren't getting a full 12v power so he took power from elsewhere cranked the motor and it started! But the water pump was leaking so ordered a new one. next was getting the clutch to work, put the skyline pedal box in after some customising to make it all fit, only to find that the clutch pedal would foul out on the floor and not pull the master all the way making the pedal not spring back. Tracked down an s13 clutch setup and chucked it in and now its working correctly. Water pump that was purchased doesn't line up correctly so have had to order another one, which hopefully will come tomorrow. Front sway bar hits sump so have purchased a 3 way adjustable whiteline bar that apparently fits, will (update when installed) I purchased som JIC coilovers cheap but have decided not to use them as the rears are not base height adjustable and i want to be able to fiddle around adjusting them to suit the new feel of the car, I also would prefer brand new ones anyway. So when I get my new coilers ill put in the full hard race arm setup I've got and go for a wheel alignment. As this car is going to be a street car I don't want to make it stand out too much so will sit just below legal height and won't go to crazy with camber and toe, but being N/A ill need it to be stiff to get it sideways. I know the car isn't legal for a P plater let alone anyone, but my thoughts are its not turbo and as long as i don't get pulled over by someone who knows the difference between an rb and ca i should be fine. will post up some pics and more info soon i didn't take many as i wasn't going to do a build thread but thought id share it since if you search rb25de s13 all there is is hate about it and people saying its a waste of money.... well this build has cost me around 3k including car, rego, engine, gear box, edu, custom loom, full hard race arms, add roughly 1000-1500 for coilovers and its under 5k for everything. oh and I'm a panel beater so ill be painting it millennium jade free of charge, so to me it seems like a pretty mean streater under 5k and when the time comes for a turbo everything is ready for an RBxxdet to drop straight in
  3. Hi everyone Currently running Japwarehouse coilovers in my S15 with spring rates of 10kg front and 8kg rear - way too stiff for daily use I can go down to 8/6 by changing the spring without having to get the coilovers revalved Is 8/6 is a good combination to be running fairly low with significantly better comfort than what I'm getting on my 10/8kg setup? All input appreciated note this is for a daily ride and I love having my car low Thanks in advance Rod

  5. I'm From Montreal Canada (and speek french and english but sorry for the mistakes I'll do in adavance ) The Car (not finished yet but will be soon) Here the laws are much more loose than yours for modification (no special plate, no police checkup if you don't do silly stuff in from of them, we are allowed to swap engine do whatever we want as long a we keep the original point of attatch for the engine and dont modifie the crossmember, stuff like that). The Cars the sell here are borring, we could import 15 year old RHD from japan but since it was going crasy now since 2 years we can't inspect them anymore so...now we cant plate them anymore... (to many crasy cars for cheap to too young drivers so imagin the reputation of RHD on this side of the planet...) Here the ''cheap fun car'' are old 1990 nissans 240sx (came with the KA24 ) 300zx N\A or TT... and stuff like th but are all eaten by winter salt so all of them are only good for scrap with major rust issues ... That Said I Found a Mint MINT restored chassis of a 1992 Nissan 240 SX Fastback, (here they are all 240'S with only the flip lights so we had the equivalent of the 180sx and the onevia all with the 2.4 liters KA Either DE or the E ..so our 240sx weren't powerfull at all). Engine Speaking I choose a RB26 a Rare engine for our region...and swapped in a 180 there is not a lot around here I can tell you... My friend had a blown one in his r32 He parted out and I had my old tranny from my Stolen R32 Rb25 skyline GTST wich I planed to rebuild. So Basicly I decided To Rebuilt the engine with all the mods that we all know to make it reliable and some fancy head I found by luck (a 800 hp 9500rpm (apprently...never seen proof of that) skyline parted out and had a fully built by Hokue Racing Factory engine) At that time I didnt know what was in the head only it had apexi cams and a port and polish. After I brought it to my engine guy he opened it and check it and it was all apexi pink stuff in it cam are Apexi GT step 2 264 duration ...so basicly a very nice head . NICE because I paid the price of the cams for the entire head...good call Mister Bond. Wanted to keep the twin turbo ...still don't know why, maybe I tought I'd have more response or whatever...well bad choice because my car beeing a LHD the steering colum is in the way to have dual 3 inches downpipes... still made it this way... it's very thight but it fits... BRAVO! I kept the stock manifold, putted 2 Garret GT2860-5 Turbos in there, Tomei Expreme downpipe and a mated to a 4 inches oval SS exausth (5x3 inches ...) 2x3inches downpipe into a 5x3 y pipe si a Killer flow setup I believe... and all the other that have seen it too.. A little list of what is on the engine...I probably forgot some but hey...that will give you an Idea.. Rb26dett : Head: (built by hokue racing factory in japan) my mecanic made the list for me. Port N polish apexi GT step 2 -- 264 duration 10,6lift in/exh ; apexi pink springs apexi guides and lifters. Cometic full gasket kit ARP head studs. Oil restrictor Custom Rear Oil Return to Pan Greddy Intake Divided Turbo Outlet Base; All balanced Wiseco piston & rods Acl race bearings ARP main bearings studs N1 oil and water pump R34 N1 crankshaft Modified oem oil pan 800 CC seimens deka injectors OEM manifolds 2xGt2860-5 turbos tomei expreme 2 1/2 inchs dump pipes..... 4 inches oval strait pipe exausth. Intercooler I found a used ARC that was in a front clip of a rb26 s13 out here in a JDM junkyard...it's ugly on the pictures but I have made it look better unfold the little fins and paint it black I made a variable exausth system, via the stock 240sx muffler (no muffler ticket because here...you can swap but not change your exausth) or strait pipe to the ground...stealth mode I put it on 18 inches pinks Gewalt Evo 2 18x10 +35 on all 4 wheels, (30mm widebody in front, rolled the fenders like crasy in the back) 235 in front 275 in the back. Suspension is all Tein Monoflex , All the arms are made by bings here in canada (www.bings.ca) good stuff... no shipping cost ..no custom...happy me. In the rear to make it more durable I puted a Skyline GTR R32 Subframe that had a 2way lsd in it... The front brakes are changed to GTR as well.... 5 bolts hubs in front and it's all good to have the nice mags. I have tons of other stuff but that will do for today I have to do other stuff than computer . for all the pictures you can go on my photobucket folder it's public : http://photobucket.com/ThaBIATCH240 I will post some pictures of the build : that's about it!!! anyone want to go for a ride? here's the keys
