  1. Silvia S15 Re-Shell

    It's the same shell. The manufacture plate on the chassis says what options it was manufactured as. So if you re-shell into a non-aero then people who know what to check will value it less. However it will look exactly the same when the body dress up bits are transferred over.
  2. 1989 180sx owner

    Welcome. It's been a bit quiet on the forums for a while, but I am sure some are still lurking.
  3. 2001 200SX SURGING/HESITATING

    Is it a real MAF or an eBay one? eBay Z32 mafs have a history of causing problems. Also coil packs. They can go bad where they partly run enough to make you think they are ok.
  4. Coolant Hoses

    Not 100% sure. But given the basic engine is the same, there is a high chance of them being the same.
  5. S15 rotors front and rear

    Sorry, long gone to metal recycling. They were not perforated or slotted, just stock.
  6. Not sure if anyone else has noticed much more fan noise after installing a 52mm alloy radiator. I never used to notice any fan noise with the stock radiator. I think possibly the viscous clutch is getting to much heat as it is now physically closer to the radiator code, making it operate harder earlier. This happens even on cool days after 20 mins or so driving. Engine is basically stock with Nismo thermostat and alloy china radiator (52mm triple core). Engine temps are fine (probably cooler than they should be for daily driving) and system has been bled. I just want to know if this is a normal thing with an alloy rad replacement that I haven't seen mentioned before.
  7. Very interesting. My car didn't come with fog lights, audio or keyless entry (but has all). Everything else matches.
  8. S15 rotors front and rear

    Front rotors are 29.6mm (min 28, new 30) Rear are 8.1mm (min 7, new 9) Probably not going to ship these due to the weight. Can pickup in Epping or Bella Vista, or could be persuaded to drop off around or between said locations. Make an offer, 6-pack of beer or equivalent cash will be looked at favourably.
  9. Trolley Jacks

    Thanks guys. Good to know they work well with a bit of abuse.
  10. Trolley Jacks

    My 25 yo trolley jack has finally given up and leaked out its fluid. I am thinking about winning our and getting a light aluminium one to replace it. Do people rate the Arcan 1.8T from Costco? Any good alternatives?
  11. Is a walbro 450 too big for 180rwkw?

    A Walbro 255 can flow 177-215 l/h (12v to 13.5v) at 70 psi (25 psi boost) from typical graphs I have seen. Which is enough to max out 740cc side feed injectors (177 l/h) at up to 25psi boost. Just make sure they get enough volts. However they are not E85 proof so expect a shortened life.
  12. S13 sr20det problems!

    Sounds like a bad earth to your fuel pump. 6.3 volts isn't good (unless you measured the fuel gauge signal by mistake). Bad earth's to the fuel pump can be an issue. Edit: The earth to the pump goes through a relay that is controlled by the ECU. Maybe you have a bad relay or bad wiring.
  13. The Penrite 10 Tenths range have a lot of Zinc. Read below why Zinc is a good thing for wear reduction. https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2012/10/18/tech-101-zinc-in-oil-and-its-effects-on-older-engines/ https://www.thoughtco.com/debunking-the-motor-oil-additive-urban-legend-726162
  14. Nismo injector id help

    Colour is right, and the A46-Z00 and 5 markings match my Nismo 740s. The other number I presume is a serial number as that differs in several digits. The following link shows a good shot of the bottom of the injector that match my 740s. https://www.rhdjapan.com/nismo-high-flow-volume-injector-side-feed-740cc.html
  15. S15 Ignition barrel jammed

    Generally silicon spray is recommended for locks. The solvent evaporates leaving behind a thin layer of silicon grease.
