180sx, FINALLY back on the road.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, over the period of time that I have had my licence I've owned an R32 GTS and an AE82 Twincam 20v! I have finally jumped on the turbo band wagon, and can't wait to start modding my car! I picked up this SR20DET 1994 180sx for a pretty decent price, and if you can't already tell, its clean as hell! Tell me what you think, cheers!

Niiice.

My brother's got a shell in the exact colour. Hopefully this'll give him a bit more motivation to get working on it.

What're the plans?

Plans are in no particular order; Intercooler, T28, Coilovers, Boost controller, and a Boost gauge at the moment! Just put a pod filter on, reckless. I hope to slowly gather up a heap of Type-X kit to put on also!

Cheers guys, replaced the standard air box with a pod filter and got the factory BOV going! I'm going to slowly gather Type-X kit, and not really do much to the interior at all! Coilovers, Intercooler, Boost Controller etc.. just the basics for now! Can't wait! :thumb: Can't forget the Domo plush toy hanging from the tow hook either :thumbsup:

Clean as f**k! Keep it away from carparks and pubs and it might stay that way.

Holy shiz that engine bay is 100% stock and somebody sure did abuse the clean wipes!

 

Sure will be a shame to see it get stripped down for performance haha!

put the airbox back on for sure. feed a cold air pipe to it like a 3" flexi pipe or something with a drop in upgraded filter.

 

gives you better low end response and doesnt effect the power level. (as long as there is a bigger air feed to it.)

 

 

love the car! looks so clean.

Sweet as! My rims need cleaning up a bit, small amounts of gutter rash etc. Wish I had a sunroof though, so not quite twins ;)

For now though... I NEED MORE LOW. And an intercooler....
