  1. Hello everyone in NS land, I have just acquired an S15 SR20DET that I will be mounting in an AE86 drift car. I managed to get the motor at quite a good price as the clutch was dead and I believe the previous owner was having trouble deciding how to go about replacing it. I have had a search though this forum and through a lot of US forums (thanks to google) but wanted to check my understanding with the gurus on here before I bought parts that might not work correctly. So, I intend to put an S15 SR20det in front of a 5MT gearbox. That gearbox will be an S13/14 bellhousing connected to an R32 box (to move the shift position a little further forward in the tunnel), but in essence it will be an S13 5MT. In order for everything to connect properly will I need: - An S13/14 (Solid) Flywheel - An S13/14 puk clutch (ie a clutch plate with springs in it) - An S13/14 starter motor (not 100% sure on this one because shouldn't using the S13/14 bellhousing place the starter ring gear at the right place?) - Place a pilot bearing in the back of the crank (anyone know a part number that will fit?) - Obviously for my setup I will also require custom tailshafts, gearbox crossmembers etc as well. Does anyone else know of anything obvious I am missing? Or does that all sound OK? Thanks in advance! Cheers, -Robbo
  2. I have recently purchased a S13 Silvia (SR20DET), and I have been trying to piece together the turbo configuration, and wondering if there is anyone with a similar set up? I am interested in getting a better understanding first hand as I am not that clued onto turbo set-ups. I know what all the individual pieces are: The exhaust housing has Garrett cast into it, and the CHRA has Garrett on the name plate. I have not seen Garrett on the intake housing. CHRA - 700177-0010 MODEL - GT3076R TURBINE SIDE SIZE = 56.5 mm OUTLET = 52.0 mm TRIM = 84 COMPRESSOR SIDE SIZE = 76.2 mm INLET = 53.1 mm TRIM = 48 I have not seen the exhaust side turbine, however the intake side has seven blades, so I am assuming the exhaust has 14? This is what research is telling me anyway. Intake housing Have not been able to find a part number on the housing, however the A/R is 0.70. Exhaust housing - 449010-1 From researching it seems that this housing is internally gated, with a A/R 0.64. The turbo on my car is internally gated, however, I have not seen the A/R. The turbo has been low mounted and there is very little clearance between the intake housing and the engine mount. I am taking it to be tuned next week as my first dyno run indicated it was running a little lean, as well as the AFR fluctuating right through the rev range. It also struggles to maintain a constant idle. A bit more insight into my set-up before I take it to the tuner would be appreciated. Thanks
  3. I was driving home from work the other day and as I came around a corner the revs just died as if someone had just turned the key off in my sr20det vct s15. I got it towed home and as I started checking spark, the thing started again and ran for the rest of the night with a little bit of an issue with catching the idle after revving. Today turned it on this morning and it ran for 20 seconds and died, it's not spluttering or anything, when it runs it runs perfect, but it will die then not start again, if left for about 20 mins or so and try again it will start and idle again for 20 seconds or so and die again, ive checked the pump is working, lines are clear,there is no spark when it dies and wont start again, I have re earthed everything, tried unplugging iacv, a/f/m ect ect. the self diagnosis is showing knock sensor, cas and ignition respectivly, but is this a common characteristic of a cas? I allways thought if they broken then thats it, has anyone else had any experiance with a similar problem, knowone I ask seems to have an idea, because if its not the c.a.s then i dont know what else to try apart from e.c.u :/ please help

  5. 180sx, FINALLY back on the road.

    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!
  6. The Life of Luko's 180

    Stole intro from new members section Hi all, I'm known by the name of Luko and live in the hills of SA I've got my hands on this 180, it looks a bit rough and has a defect right now so over the next few weeks I'm going to clean it up and register it. I bought the car off a friend who tried to put a 200 front on it, and got defected for it being too low, and then rear ended a van at 40kph. It has a kit on it but I want to take it back to stock and do my own thing. I have plans for a 5 stud conversion and some mild upgrades, would love a heap of kw's. I'm interested in getting out to Mallala too. 1995 180sx blacktop. 11xxxxkms. I'm looking forward to making a build thread very soon, and no doubt I have plenty of questions that need answers - this is my first import and modding opportunity. Thanks guys! DJETRO 256 11.5 lift. 740cc GT2871r 1200 My room....... So as of right now, I don't really know what I'm doing. It's gonna be 3 weeks before it can go into Regency, and I'll be in Thailand, so see what happens.
  7. S13 Silvia, aero 200kw

    Boring story crap, scroll to ignore This is my 1992 s13 silvia, sr20de delivered. Bought the car a few years ago with sr20det red top already in. Soon, the turbo blew, so I replaced it with a t28bb from s15. Later I was defected, not once, but twice. The 2nd time I was defected it was to regency for rear eyebrow height. On the way home, I blew the engine (she was well on her way out, so I just finished her off;) ) Engine got swapped out, fresher one with good compression put in. Turbo was shagged so that was replaced too. This car is reliable enough that I took her up to Ballina and Byron bay for Splendour in the Grass, didnt have a single hitch along the way 2013 came around, and a friend of mine told me of a track day coming up, with lots of track time promised up at Tailem Bend. Having never drifted track, don't even have coilovers, I decided I would go anyway. The event was All Day Powerplay. So I drove up, did some skids, and drove home. Then decided to borrow some coilovers for Stadium Drift rd 1, so drove up for that and drove home again. Bought my own suss, BC BRs 8f, 6r and put them in the night before Stadium Drift rd 2, drove the car up, drove home again Fun fun.

  8. Hey all, A few of you may know me, but some may not... I'm Jack, I've been into imports for a few years now. When i started looking for my first import i was looking all over for an s13 or onevia. I ended up buying an r32 gtst because i just wanted a car fast and i wanted to start learning how to drift. Been drifting for 3 or so years now and the car got out of hand very quickly. Its sporting a heap of mods, and is a full track car now. I love the car to pieces, however being a track only drift car i have no import to drive on the street anymore. I figured, the whole point of owning a car is to drive it around, but because i no longer have a jap car on the street its pretty depressing i have to drive my commodore ute around. As much as its a good daily, i get zero enjoyment out of it and its not who i am. Sooooo... That has bought me to this new project. I bought this s13 off a mate the other week. it has a large range of mods and i got it at a reasonable price due to it being unregistered. He had owned the car for a few years, but wasnt massively into cars. It came to an abrupt hault when he got defected for too low after just installing brand new bc coilovers... Due to his lack of motivation for the car to be on the road and going overseas and stuff, the car sat in storage for almost a year. So i picked it up the other week, and drove it to my garage where i work on my cars. Below ive posted a current mod list, it has lots of goodies which was almost too much for me, but it will be good in the long run. Current Mods: rebuilt blacktop sr20det garrett t28 ball bearing turbz dr drift daughter board ecu tuned at 198rwkw brand new hks evc6 boost controller with hand new z32 afm front mount intercooler acid dipped to clean the crap out/off it greddy catch can metal intake pipe blitz pod filter metal intake pipe aloy radiator split dump pipe 3" zorst with dump stile muffler so not to loud and discrete oil filter relocation kit with oil cooler front mounted bosch 910 external fuel pump 450hp jap s15 480cc injectors engine brace modified vn thermo fan turbosmart plumbback bov blocked off drive line: BC coils aftermarket camber, castor and tie rods arms all pilow mounted tie rod spacers r32 skyline front brakes proffesionaly welded r180 diff with 4'3 ratios plus some others s14 box rear subframe pinapples now soild bushs heavy duty button clutch front and rear strut braces exterior: two tone champaine over grey new rear window seals repaired front window seals new wipper blades jap 17"x8 and 17"x9 rims granador mirrors rare wind deflector new clear front bar indicators new clear corner lamps/indicators j's square headlights interior: new s15 front seats drift shift light nardi steering wheel 3X genuwine greddy oil press, oil temp, water temp white face gauges with sencors hks evc6 control unit sony head unit alpine type s 6" fronts alpine 6x9" rears drift hand brake Plans for the build: The main aim for this build is to make an (almost) legal street car that i can have abit of fun with in the hills(not drifting), go to meets, really nice clean s13 that i am proud to drive around and something that will make me happy whenever i drive it. A lot of people are against street cars now due to our harsh road rules and laws, but this car will only be a weekender. The look i am going for is an oldschool usdm inspired onevia. For those that dont know, it will basically have the roof racks, lowish, balloon tires on 15's, front lip, etc, but i want to keep it simple and old. If any of you are like me, as soon as i had the idea of buying the car in my head i just went crazy(cray cray) and started buying stuff, before i had even put a deposit on the car. hahah The beginning: The first thing i began to to with the car was take off all the parts i didnt want... This consisted of s15 front seats weathershields Weds wheels FMIC BOV POD s13 front end carbon boot I sold the parts and started looking for replacements for them all to suit my style/needs. Parts aquired so far: So i set off looking on Yahoo Japan for wheels first, cos lets be honest wheels make a car and it would be a good start to the build seeing as tho the car currently had poor offset and sized wed's wheels. I found some SSR MKII in 15x7.5+6 and 15x8+13 which i quite liked, so i contacted Jesse streeter and we got the ball rolling. i ended up winning the wheels for abit less than i thought they wre going to go for. Which is always a good thing. So they are on the way over from Japland now. I got a ripper deal on a whole 180 front from a guy up in the hills, who was parting a whole 180 for a track car, he gave me all the panels, lights, fuseboxes, looms, etc which i needed for the conversion. I am still yet to put it on because there are a few things i need to fix first. I got an r32 gtr sway bar off my cousin for the rear to stiffen that up abit. Pignose front bar and ca front lip, both genuine. Apexi turnflow FMIC standard air box R32 gtst front seats Nismo aero skirts for s13 Standard mirrors GK tech radiator overflow bottle GK tech radiator shroud Also currently have a mate over in the us who may "aquire" some californian plates for me... could be a good little touch to the car at the end. i attached some pics of the car as i bought it, and the wheels, new fmic, and what i hope it will turn out like. Parts still needed: Origin roof spoiler jdm square fog lights for inside the front bar Tires for the ssr's Thule Roof racks with a custom wind fairing Change front brakes back to standard sr to clear the wheels. Will keep updating as i go. Hope you enjoy the build as much as i hope to. Jack.

  11. SR20DET questions

    Hi guys. I've done a basic search but haven't found a lot of info I need. I am new to working with motors, and even more so performance motors. I have more of a suspension and gearing knowledge background. So I have chosen to use an SR20DET with a C4 Auto and an LT230 transfer case in my soon to be rock crawler/offroad racer. What I would like to know is: - Before I make one. Are there any available SR bell housing to C4 box adaptors? -While keeping engine life as a consideration, what can I do to get some more power out of the motor with stock internals and how much could I expect? -how much should I expect the mods to cost? - I will be running a water to air intercooler, what size and length of piping should I aim for to keep lag at a minimum? The C4 will be manualised with a 2200-2500 stall, so I would like boost to come on about there. Cheers, Dan.
  12. Ok so i've owned my S13 for about 8 years and i decided the other night to finally do a build thread, I spent about 3 hours going from the start and then my computer froze and lost everything I had done, so i'm not going thru that shit again so i'll just tell a rough history and then go into more detail about the most recent changes.... I bought it as a stock ca18det and it was painted hot house green http:// htt:// A couple of years ago the cheap stainless high mount manifold i had cracked so got a custom steampipe one made by Sonny at powertune.. http:// Also a couple of years ago I got sick of it being green so got it sprayed V35 skyline pearl white.. http:// About a year and a half ago E85 came to a servo just down the street so filled the tank with it and then went road tuning with my best mate Jez, then got it on the dyno, made 298rwkw on 21psi with the injectors maxed...

  15. G'day! How awesome is the S14a 200SX and the SR20DET!!! I'm an engineer from Adelaide with a 1997 S14a. Had one in Sydney around 2002, but was stolen by professional thieves. This one was from the country, owned by a 60 year old spirited woman for last 12 years. Has a Veilside kit, or more likely a copy. I've got my mechanic Larry to convert it from auto to manual (anyone want an auto conversion kit?). Had ongoing engine lack of power / running rough problems, but reckon just solved them with help from Factory Manual and computer (seems heated oxygen sensor). In engineering I've specialised in noise and vibrations (acoustics) for 15 years, so can provide insight and help in these areas. For example muffler acoustics and vibration and resonances are my thing. I've especially joined so I can write up the story of the difficult problem I've had with my S14a, in case it helps other SR20DET owners to track down their own problems. Cheers, Ben

The coilovers have been sold through out Asia, America and Europe for over 10 years with a very positive response. Our coilovers are produced at our own workshop by qualified technicians, designers and quality control personnel. Some of the designing is now carried out by our very own team in Australia making the coilovers more suitable for the Australian market. In 2006 our company supported Danny Vahoumis "the godfather of drift" through sponsorship. Danny proved the durability of our products at the top level of Drift in Australia, collecting podium finishes along the way. In 2007 ISC supported the Wheelworx 3 car DA team consisting of Tom Monkhouse, Adam May and Linden Reynolds. Once again this demonstrated that our coilovers can perform at the highest level of motorsport, this was evident when Tom Monkhouse finished first at RD3 in Eastern Creek. Over time our products have become more popular, thus constantly updating our performance range in order to bring you the best quality products at an affordable price. Currently we are sponsoring Danie Prior in his 1.5JZ S13 silvia, In 2011 Daniel was very consistent qualifying at the top of the field in each round and also finished 2nd and 4th outright in 2 rounds. The silvia currently competes in the SA G1 series but hopefully in the future it will compete in a variety of events around Australia. Another car we are currently sponsoring is the ISC Time Attack S14, this car has the whole ISC suspension package along with other ISC parts such as radiator, intercooler etc. The car has competed in 5 local Time Attack events finishing 2nd,1st,1st,2nd,2nd in RWD OPEN Class, the car also travelled to Winton for the 2011 SAUNATS and took out 2nd place in open class (first time on the track). ISC Australia has just released new thrust bearing kits for its range of N1 coilovers. These kits are manufactured in Australia, using high quality Japanese bearings. The addition of the bearing kit to your coilovers will add faster and smoother steering response, and allows better spring compression. Another huge bonus is that it takes a lot of stress away from the pillowball giving it a longer life. Kits are available for purchase with N1 coilovers for an additional $100 (below cost price) or can be purchased seperately for $149 a pair.

  21. Hey guys, I've seemed to have abandoned the supra forums that I have grown a home to, to gain your knowledge about the silvia s15's! My sister owns a silvia s15 sr20det spec-s and will be selling it soon after I work out some tweaks and faults. I have seem to have hit a dead end with a 'ticking noise' that is coming from the right side of the motor (facing towards the front of the car, opposite the battery side). It is a constant 'tick tick tick' while sitting on idle, but once revving the car, starts to speed up. I have filmed the sound and have uploaded it on youtube for you guys to see. It actually sounds worse on the video than what it seems to be much appreciated if you guys can shed some wisdom upon the problem im facing! thanks once again! oh and also... i am fixing the boot lid cable that connects to the side of the driver seat, pulling it doesn't seem to open it anymore aha! would love to grab some help on that also. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cclcm_u6ENk&context=C43be9b7ADvjVQa1PpcFPxrA9G4b4e9I_lHl_tKB0itDMp58Fms6E=

  25. Intro Hi friends, Bought my car recently and really like the idea of keeping a journal-type thing so feel free to ignore this thread as it's more of a personal scrapbook thread of my car and the learning curve which I'm undertaking, rather than a build thread. When I bought htis car, I had zero clue about engine and mechanics, literally the only thing I knew about was how to check the oil. But anyways; I've been driving a 2009 Hyundai Getz for a few years, it's the bottom of the line 1.4L manual but hell, I love the hills anyway and learnt to drive through the hills in it, generally to the surprise of other car owners who love the hills when I can pretty well keep up with a lot of the people I come across. Started driving in 2009 with my mates in their corollas and volvos and whatever the hell we had to drive. My best driving mate drives an AE82 and we used to just go up through the hills a few times a week - this helped me realise you really don't need power to go quick in the hills. So, present day, I was a few phone calls away from purchasing an '02 Renault Clio Sport.. was pretty much in the 'hot hatch' mindset of things, didn't even care that it looks like a humpback whale from the back. Then I started hanging out with an old mate again working on his S13 (which has been sitting in his garage for a bit over 2 years collecting dust) and, well, it pretty much reignited hopes and dreams blah blah that I had when I was like 15 so a few days later we saw a 180sx for the right price on these forum classifieds and I thought "screw it" so for $3,800 off a dealer(?) I ended up with a running, automatic 1991 SR20DET 180sx that was in some serious need of some TLC. The Car 158,xxx KM's SR20DET (running) Automatic Black, half the clear coat missing.. The day I looked at it it (10/12) The day I collected it (12/12) The guy seemed kind enough to throw in a set of stock rear struts as there was some reported knocking by one of the mechanics, later on we saw that the stock ones were pretty screwed and the bushes were basically gone but not to worry... Day 1 Solved problems: - engine fluids probably hadn't been changed in about 30,000 km - a wish list of stickers on the bonnet (apexi, greddy, hks etc etc...) Took her up to my mate's shed where the first thing he proceeded to do was get a razor blade and scratch off the big Need for Speed-style decal on the rear window that said "UNDRGRND KING". Pity, I really liked being an undrgrnd king. We did a few little things like changing the fluids (engine oil, coolant, fuel filter, oil filter, spark plugs). It was unreal how much of a power/response increase doing this made. It was pretty clear by this point that whoever had owned the car last did not give a fuck about this car. He/she had tried to re-trim the interior and it was a delicious stained yellow vinyl colour with plenty of dirt on it. My mate ended up having a spare 180sx door lying outside in the sun so I scavenged the trim from it. It'd been weathered for probably 18 months but it was much of an improvement. Did general cleaning and other cosmetic stuff, ended up replacing the stock airbox for a mounted pod filter as well. Day 2 Solved problems: - no boost getting to the engine Car didn't start this morning.. my mate ended up spraying some carby cleaner inside the throttle body and she started to run.. then we switched off the ignition and the engine kept running, dieseling. How odd, right? Anyway, the turbo was boosting but not getting a feed through to the engine.. ended up quickly dropping past Adelaide Jap Imports and seeing if they would take a quick look at it (absolute champs) and they saw straight away that the wastegate circlip had come off. Went to the shed, fixed this, no more wasted boost! Day 3 Solved problems: - timing waaay out - rear struts knocking - chopped springs at the front, waaay too low - bare brake pads - Worn & missing sway bar bushes Swapped over the stupid struts on all fours that were on the car and replaced brake pads on the front (that had pretty much worn past their warning pins.....). Had issues that we'd noticed from Day 2 where the engine idle was around 1700 RPM and dropping up and down.. as in idling at 1700 then dropping to 1200 then back up to 1700. Went to pick up some new bushes for the front sway bars from Japanese Import Spares and got the owner to take a quick look as to why it was idling wrong.. he saw straight away that the bolt was in the wrong position so we manually adjusted it later that day and lo & behold, perfect 800~ RPM idling. Decided that we were going to try and smash out the auto-> manual conversion and overnight, so we christened the car with chinese beforehand. The donor for gearbox, clutch, pedals & everything else needed. Got to about 1:30am and we'd only taken out the pedals from a donor S14 write-off, drilled housings for the clutch and installed the S14 brake pedal in the 180sx so we decided to just call it a night since we were so overtired already and the weather was hot as. Day 4 Solved problems: - Car wouldn't start again, ended up managing to make it start by feathering the accelerator. By this point it seems that the car won't start when cold, but when warm it's fine - leads me to thinking it's something to do with either the coolant temp sensor or the ECU taking incorrect readings. We pulled up at the shed in preparation for a day's work on the car, sat down, lit a smoke and about 30 seconds later the coolant pipes burst, dumping all my beautiful new coolant onto the floor and sending a shitload of steam out of the engine bay for a solid few minutes. At least my bay is now steam cleaned right? Car is currently sitting in the shed, waiting on getting it towed to another mate's shed where we will finish the manual conversion, take a look at the coolant temp sensor and try and figure out why the hell it overheated to the point of unleashing my coolant pipes. Good news is it looks as though the pipes are the transmission lines so can just carry straight on with the manual conversion and not worry about reattaching the hoses. Current problems: - Not starting when cold - Coolant pipes just chilling somewhere down near the gearbox - Something wrong with either the coolant temp sensor, ECU readings, fan clutch or thermostat. Maybe all of them! Plans - Either get a decent paintjob or wrap the car with vinyl wrap... - R33 seats or something similar - Complete onevia/sileighty swap with my mate's s13 Much, much more to come.
