180 Type X 292rwkw 98 OCTANE street + track car

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. So I've been meaning to make a build thread for a while now, just havent got around to doing it. I bought a fresh off the boat import in January this year. A very clean '97 180sx Type X with (allegedly) 61,000 kms on the clock and nothing but a cat back exhaust...but that's what i was after, a very very stock car. Yeah it's heaps costly to build from scratch but to me buying a built car was never an option, i wanna make something of my own =D Also had some ghey chrome lights which i changed to normal type x's lol...

 

Since then I've added the following:

 

- Turbotech MBC

- Greddy Spec LS FMIC

- Custom intercooler piping

- Custom intake pipe

- Z32 Front Calipers

- Custom 4 stud RDA rotors to suit

- ADM T28

- K&N Apollo Enclosed Pod

- 3" turbo back exhaust with flex pipe and decat pipe

- Walbro 500HP Fuel Pump

- EBC Redstuff Brake Pads all round

- 17" Volk Racing GT-P Rims with Falken ZE912 tyres

 

I reckon i'm prolly putting down about 160-170 kws? If that?

 

Heres the interesting bit though, I've bought a fair few new bits to go in and now I'm just saving up for a haltech fitted and tuned from Powertune =D Going for the Haltech Platinum Sport 1000 kit so that eliminates the need for an AFM or Boost Controller =D

 

Bits waiting to go in:

 

- GCG Custom Turbo

- Greddy Adjustable Type R BOV

- Brian Crower Stage 2 Cams

- Brian Crower Valve Springs and Retainer Kit

- Brian Crower Adjustable Cam Gears

- GKTech Rocker Arm Stoppers

- Exedy HHD Clutch

- 2000cc I.D Injectors

- Shift - I Progressive Tacho Shift Light Gauge

 

Sucks so much cos all these parts are jst sitting around waiting to be put in...but just gotta gather the coin for the haltech n tune hahaha!!! SOON!!!

 

Kemp does all my custom work if anyones interested =D Bloody clean work if u ask me and really high quality. I'm going for a stock looking setup so my engine bay will hopefully look the same as it does now if possible. I still have the stock airbox which i will be whacking back in instead of the Apollo.

Haha yeh well lights are an easy change. Finding an immaculate condition car is not as easy! So you did the right thing. Looking good. What plans do you have? Drifting it or just clean streeter?

I'm looking to keep it very streetable. I'm going to be tracking it but more circuit and time attack rather than drifting. Should be fun :) also planning to go VE as soon as I have the coin for it...
