Hi guys I am Japonic,I live in Osaka.

I'm in love with iconic Japanese cars,I've always been interested in cars since I was a kid. It was time for me to buy a car, and I needed a car that I could use and modify on a daily basis. The most affordable car was the Nissan 180sx, because the price was affordable and a nice car. The person I bought the car said he couldn't deal with the car because of the busy work and wanted to sell it.It's a clean car in general, but it needs some repairs.For example, there are problems with gear shifts, there are noises from the exhaust and there is work to be done on the body parts.These processes will be improved and corrected over time and I think it will be a very enjoyable process.I don't intend to make an extravagant modification because I'm going to use the car on a daily basis,A modern and stylish look makes me very happy.I'm thinking of making some modifications to the engine.The former owner sold the original CA18 engine and replaced it with the SR20 engine.The engine is atmospheric, I actually like the turbo engine, but I do not want to turn into turbo.I'm thinking of buying a quality exhaust headers and moving to ITB.Let me tell you about the features of the car;
-1992 Nissan 180SX 198.xxx Km.The engine is equipped with a Koyorad radiator and an Apexi air filter.No add-ons other than those listed, only a front bumper lip and a rare digital gauge.

Certainly, the car culture is very nice. I think the time I enjoy the most in my life is when I deal with my car.I enjoy spending time with everyone who loves car culture and having a nice chat.180sx is a really nice car, I have good plans.I would like to have a meeting in the coming days.

I started small adjustments.The day after I bought the car I ordered these stop lights.there was no problem with the old taillights, but I like the Type-X taillights more. :D Together with the taillights, I replaced the Nissan logo on the back with a golden yellow color and added the rps13 logo to the taillight. I sold the original taillights, so I didn't pay a lot of money when buying the Type-X taillights.Apart from these operations, I am beginning to make changes to the interior parts of the car.I bought it online 3 days ago, and I'll share their photos when they come.I want to correct the gearshifts that are problematic this week, after this problem is solved, driving pleasure will be greatly enhanced.I know that there is no problem with the transmission gears, it would be too expensive for me, I'll fix it with a small part, improved. :)

I definitely agree, especially the round taillights that stand very well in the dark. :D

Hi everybody;

I haven't been updating about s13 in a while.In fact, we took care of a few important things in this long process, which unfortunately took a long time but the result was very pleasant.We actually did a little restoration. We repaired the bodywork damage of S13, canceled some parts (antenna, fenders). After all these operations, we installed the new Type-X bumper and sent the car to the paint workshop.The car was already the original color red, I painted the tone a little lighter red, but superficially.By surface paint I mean the car was only painted from the outside, the inside of the doors and the engine pool are still in their original color, so they remained a little darker but not a big problem for me.The reason I do this is to reduce the cost of paint.In addition to these operations.

I have also made several improvements to the interior of the vehicle,first I changed the gear lever to correct the problematic gear shifts, instead of the original one, we put a short shifter on the Enjukuracing brand and got a stylish look with the nismo gear knob.I also like the Nardi steering wheel, so I bought a new one. :D All in all, it was a really clean car, but there was something stuck in my eyes. The S13 needed a new wheel, but the car has 4 wheel bolts.The 5 lug hub swap was done and then I put 17 inch BBS LM Gold,I chose Bridgestone as the tire.

I have sold all the parts that I have removed from the car at a very reasonable price, and I will write the expenses in detail at the bottom.I really think it is a very nice daily car.By the way, I've been looking for a two-car garage for a while, thinking of preparing a car for the drift. :D

Damn bro. That rps13 type x look is sick. Can't wait to see what your drift car could be. Maybe we could go for a cruise sometime, since I live in Osaka as well. Hell, we actually might be neighbors XD. Anyway, wish you the best of luck, and can't wait to see what you got in store.
