  1. non of those mods should give it any drama, the ecu will compensate slightly for the boost increase with a bit of extra fuel they run fairly ritch regardless with a little bit of popping fuel smell with a bigger exhaust / high flow cat best to also just check the coolant sensor is correct and that its not stuck in cold start and the AFM are notorious for needing cleaning - but thats often more a missfire kinda deal unless you have something drastic like a leaking injector or similar maybe just chuck it on a dyno to check air flow rations
  2. http://www.the-lowdown.com/biggies-180/ hey dude my car as discussed
  3. Is this comp test good

    a big differentiation like that is not ideal... perhaps time for a leak down test
  4. +1 for Dennis good dude has done lots of work for me
  5. im just sad you sold that car some nice parts here though
  6. ASI Radiators

    thye work well just be warned they do vary slightly depending on what batch china fired up today

    http://www.taarks.com/product_p/nis-waterpump-s13sr.htm alot of people make up brakets for the oil cooler to mount it in the frotn wheel well with air feed from the front brake cool duct on the front bar like so http://enginewhisperer.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/oilcooler.jpg or in the front like so https://fourdoori.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/dsc_1079.jpg go to bunnings and buy some alloy strip plate you can bend it in a vice and drill it then bolt it all in place
  8. Z32 Gearbox Sr conversion

    what mount kit did you use? did you use the 2X bigbolts through the bottom of the block (you have to drill them) or is it one of the adapter plate styles that just use the 4Xish bolts arouns the top and left side
  9. I know you have got a lot of satisfaction from the build process. But a enough is enough ... Just buy a decent gearbox , turn the boost up and drive the wheels off the thing. +1 whats left to do? unless your putting a tti or somthing in it hahaha
  10. Most disappointing. Did it still look the same, or was is rocking a different front-end? same front end everything i saw it im like surely not there cant be another one but yeah same number plate
  11. man unlucky hey, did the pedal just go to floor or was it progessive
  12. you will never guess what i saw drving down the city west link in sydney today... it still lives
  13. was about to say speak to tarrk otherwise http://supertechperformance.com/ do n1 cams
  14. if not you should looking very tidy
  15. Steering Wheel Shake on Freeway

    mine had deregistation papers when i imported it plus books from new with servicing 151,000km to date pity its now a race car hahahaha
  16. 180sx Headroom? (Sorry)

    fist up you wont fit with a sunroof model - as you lose a inch or so clearance im 6.2 and fit comfortably with a inch to spare on standard seats / rails that said everyone has a different height torso. you will fit in a non sunroof with a litle bit of gangser lean.. if you want o wear a helet you may be lookin at needing to run a bucket seat etc
  17. Signs of diff failure?

    normally diff will do the following to let you know they have retired 1. explode 2. single peg 3. wail / rattle and Generally make a racket non stop 4. lock up leaving you unable to move the car change the oil and if you problem persists beat down on it more till one of the above happens
  18. Cooling Pro radiators OK?

    just make sure you hose it out before use as they often have alloy swarf in them from the manufacturing process.
  19. 10 years

    is scary when you lease you have owned the car for nearly 10 years... and how much money it owes you
  20. Manual steering racks

    we did one for a corolla race car. if you do it poperly aka remove all the gear and slot the seals so it can move freely it feels fine..... the only drma is a true manual rack normally has a different ratio to a powersteering rack to make up for the "feel" the heavy crap feel is because the power racks are designed to be power assisted. when the pump fails you have to work against the hydrolic loop/pressure
  21. Manual steering racks

    have you considered manualising the current steering rack edit sorry just saw he posted the above never mind most of the manual race racks i can find are LHD
  22. nice post dude - nice to have something to point people to when they ask about it
