    Right well iv been on the hunt for a Nissan SR20DET for a while now as some know and i went through all the phases - s14, 14a, 180sx, s15 back to a 14 and ended up with a 180 lol

    I bought this off Steveone a few weeks back with brand new fresh NCT and i got it at a very very good price ;) . I rathered the idea of buying a nice clean 180 and havin plenty of money to spend on it instead of buying a s15 and havin no money to spend on it. What really sold me about this car is it has genuine milage, proof it was well taken care of in Japan and a rediculously clean shell. It has 165 000kms which are definately genuine and there is no patches of rust anywhere on it. I will have this back up on a lift to take underbody and arch shots to show how stupidly clean this thing is

    It started off by layin out side my girlfriend (JDeeM's) house as i had to wait for insurance to come through, i got fed up of it sittin there so it then went out to Dori-Rorys house where it sat for another week but finally today, THE INSURANCE CAME THROUGH so i drove it home

    So thats the car as it sits outside my back door.

    The first thing i did when i got it was throw on the uras front bumper, i know it is well battered but the car came with the standard front bumper and it was fuckin aweful looking. Next was to rip out the UNBELIEVEABLY SHIT HKS dumpvalve and put back in the standard intercooler pipe. The car runs 210% better without the dumpvalve. There is a lot more power and its very steady going up through the revs where with the dumpvalve the power was all over the place


    So anyway, tonight when i came home, i landed home to a bit of a treat.

    The first few wee bits and pieces i bought

    My new DMAX 5050 rear lights, Deep dish suade steering wheel and then the toys were for myself lol

    As above man, the Kouki's are a bagillion times better than those god-awful 5050 ones.

    Looks like a clean car tho :)
