Hey guys, I thought its about time 2 chuck a build thread up of my rig after seeing sum of the other crazy build threads on here.. Owner- Ben Crawford Age- 25 Occupation- mechanic Car- 1994 Nissan 180SX BIT OF HISTORY: Well for starters, when i bought it, it was a '94 180SX blacktop SR.. Got the car off a mate of mine mid 2008, being close to stock, wasn't running. It had a fmic, zorst and nackered coilys, 4 stud with 16" avs model 6's… Since buying it I had chucked on sum sard 550's, nisstune remap, hks 2510, bout 190kw.. coilys etc… was ultra responsive and loved it! Then started having some boost issues due to a nackered actuator on the 2510 so i thought id just sell up n put a 25 in it... then the 26 popped up I pulled the car off the road in November 2008. My original plan was to do the RB26 conversion as cheap as possible, and get the car back on the road within a couple of months.. then decided that because the car wasn't exactly up 2 scratch I wanted to make everything schmick if there was gona be an RB26 under the bonnet.. so heres sum pics n details of the build... enjoy UPDATED MOD LIST AFTER BLOWING TURBOS INTERIOR: Apexi RSM Stripped interior Removed sound deadening Removed heater box, aircon etc etc...
