'95 180SX SR20DET

Recommended Posts

Hi fellas. New member here just moved into the imports from owning and wasting money on a V6 Commodore (Or boat lol). Mate took me for a drive in his new-ish Sil80 with a T28 and after 2 corners I literally just changed my mind, I was looking at an SS but went and bought this about a week later.

Essentially stock but details on the car;

 

Engine:

SR20DET with a Front Mount Intercooler and Pod Filter

Stock Turbo running at 16psi (Possible tune)

2.5" Exhaust

 

Interior;

Green centre console, 10" Soudstream Sub and Fusion (ew) 6x9's mounted in the rear armrests. Alpine H/U stolen from the Commy and Digital Boost Gauge

 

Exterior;

Type X Rear Bar, Sideskirts and Taillights. Green 17" Rims, I keep forgetting what brand. Coilovers all around, not sure on brand either.

 

Future Mods:

Bigger Injectors (~700cc), Bigger Fuel Pump, Z32 MAF, T2871r Turbo. Thinking about 3" Exhaust but they sound bad compared to the 2.5 in my opinion. So probably dual 2.5" exhaust if possible. I am aiming for 200kw or 300hp, I want to be able to take on LS engines from rolling start and have a fun time powercruising. New to imports and turbos so not sure on other mods.

Got some work to do on it as I got it impounded and yellow stickered (Front tyre offset and small leak on turbo)

 

As required, pics:

Will chuck up some speccy pics a bit later with my mate's Sil80 and such.

Any feedback and suggestions are much appreciated - I don't know much with the imports and such.

Cheers

Puddi

Welcome etc... Nice 180, although your choice in chocolate flavoured milk does suck.

Type x front bar and carbon centre garnish for the tail lights would set it off nicely. And a black roof

Hahaha they were the girlfriends, I despise brownes. Double Shot Masters Iced Coffee for the win.

Black roof sounds like a very good idea, considering a Type X front bar too (I need to centre the intercooler anyway) though I like the clean white garnish on the back. Maybe an idea though.

Get the car back on Monday the 29th and I'll need to look at the turbo, if the leak is bad I'll just grab a T2871r :D Will it still be drivable ?

Get the car back next Monday and going to a fair few places to look at Turbo Leak and possible other things pits may pick on. In the meantime here are some pictures before the impoundment and before I removed the shopping list;

Hope you enjoy. That Black Sil80 is what got me into the imports, running a T28 on his.

Got a big bunch of White LEDs (License Plate, Dash, Interior Dome and Map lights) and a Manual Turbosmart Boost Controller to go in as well.

Cheers

So got the car back. Turbo isn't leaking oil, was just a dodgy catch can install with garden hose and such haha. All sorted now and all the white LEDs are in, looks good especially the dash:

Hi guys, been over the pits only picked on three things; I need a permit for coilovers + pod + exhaust manifold, basically need some stockies and front wheel arch guards. Pretty simple overall. However turbo is now making some funny sounds and I am only getting 7psi max of boost. Here's a video if anybody can help

Let me know if link doesn't work

And here's a pic from a recent cruise

So engine started knocking, swapped out for one with a flash tuned ECU + Z32 MAF and S15 injectors woo. Fixed coolant leak from turbo line... the one that goes across the back of the engine which was a prick

Currently saving funds, got myself dual thermos to go in and the car needs a tune as it runs rich and sometimes hesitates; got new spark plugs but no fix.

Gonna drop it off at PZP to get it 100%. For some reason I have some kind of electrical issue and the battery won't charge, I hear buzzing behind the dash when using power if anybody has had a similar issue let me know.

Dont get thermos please..

 

Buzzing sounds like a relay or wire being grounded.

 

Clean your AFM.. might be the problem for running rich but more or so hesitating. Doesnt hurt cause after all your Z32 was 2nd hand right?

Cleaned AFM as I installed and yeah came with the engine which I saw running and worked well - one problem was that the wiring for the Z32 came undone but I have grounded and rewired it to what I am sure is correct

I can't be bothered with the radiator shroud and it'll just be a street car which is why I was just gonna use the thermos, heard good and bad but meh. I'm thinking of putting stock MAF, Injectors and ECU in the car and see how it runs to help pinpoint what the problem is.

If anybody could shed some light on the little red box which connects the wires from the alternator to the battery and if I can remove it?

Cheers all
