  1. 2 FOR 1 CAR SWAP!

  2. Let's Talk Brake Pads!

    Quite subjective, however IMO the Project Mu HC800 are a bee's dick better than the Intima SR, however once you step up into the Type-D.. it's another level. I'd be looking for something suitable for street use but also capable of being used on the track. The Type-D's were only recommended for track use.
  3. Let's Talk Brake Pads!

    Comparing prices looking at $200 + postage for the Intima SR's and $348 + postage for Project Mu HC's. Are the Project Mu's worth the extra money?
  4. tips for moving afm into cooler pipe

    yes, you can run BOVs, dose all day, etc.. downsides to moving a Z32 - death by oil - high boost, housing explodes - needs K constant adjusted - needs changes to fueling table I did a boost leak test on my car and connected it before my Z32 MAF and the top of it started leaking. Would probably see the same problem if you relocate it after the turbo where it sees boost rather then vacuum.
  5. tips for moving afm into cooler pipe

    Best solution if you don't want you're AFM to be seen is to go MAFless. All problems solved
  6. SR20DET sleeved block ?$

    I could be way off track but I thought the idea of sleeves was that once the sleeves wore out you just replaced it for new sleeves. Saves having to do any machining to the cylinders.
  7. Let's Talk Brake Pads!

    I usually get off the shelf RDA pads. I haven't had any issues with them due to only using the car on the occasional weekend on the street but just curious to how they rate to other pads.
  8. 1996 180sx Type X for sale

    I really want a Type X especially one which hasn't been modified like yours, unfortunately I don't currently have the cash for one. Good luck with the sale and I hope it goes to a good home and doesn't become a drift pig.
  9. Bushing kit

    SuperPro or Nolathane are the two I would use. I know SuperPro do complete front and rear bush kits.
  10. Defiantly makes a difference, obviously the bigger the leak the bigger the improvement once fixed.
  11. I made my own and used a PVC pipe with a tread, glued a cap on and drilled a fitting on the end. Connect it to a air compressor and spray soapy water all over the engine. Found heaps of leaks that I wouldn't have been able to locate without the test. My last test I did I was holding a solid 35psi. I was happy with that considering I'm never going to boost that high.
  12. For a few bucks you can make a boost leak tester, that'll at least rule out that side of things.

  17. R34 GTT brake/Hub upgrade on a 180sx

    I have a HFM BM57 in my 180 with R33 GTST brakes all round and it feels great in my case. I have heard a lot of people do have problems with them though. I originally tried using a R33 BM44 which should have matched the brakes but was way too soft.
  18. Hopefully this will help people when they are looking at changing their brakes. I have a list of disc sizes, brake master cylinder sizes, calipers, brake boosters, split points and reducing ratios for the S13, S14, S15, R32, R33 R34 and Z32 series.

  20. How close were you

    Went out camping and my fan belt started squealing really badly. Since I was a bit out of the next town I continued in case I got stuck after turning the car off. Got into the next town and poped the bonnet to find the bolts which held my alternator on had all fallen out with only the fan belt holding it. Lucky the alternator didn't fall out onto the road.
  21. S14 series 2 clear guard indicators.

    You talking about the indicators which are also the same as the VP-VS Commodores?
  22. How close were you

    - I've got 200,000km from a timing belt before and the mechanic was amazed it hadn't snapped on me due to the condition it was in when they removed it. - Cruising down the road one day and one of the wheels fell off due to me putting the wrong wheel nuts on and them fulling off. - Number of times I've been extremely lucky not to have been rapped around a tree drifting around on dirt roads. - I guess you can call it luck or stupidity but when I bought my 180 I saw it and bought it without even checking it over. Was a direct exchange of cash and keys and my test drive was the drive home. Never gave me any problems until I started modifying it. That's just a few luck moments I've had related to cars.
  23. Learning to drift in Adelaide really cheap

    Get in contact with James on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/james.d.mardle?fref=ts His a owner of a drift track at Mambray Creek and has only recently got a car for people to use on his track. Other option is get yourself a cheap ass car and go to Tech Port
  24. S13 SR20det head with lines in it?

    Did someone say speckle top?
  25. A BM37 won't keep up. The R33 GTST ran a BM44 standard with only difference from a S13 BM44 being the split point. However when I installed R33 brakes on my 180 I found the BM44 was way too soft so swapped it for a BM57. The booster will only need to be swapped if you find the pedal is too hard.
