    Hi guys, my name is Marshall.

    This is my build on my current Nissan 180sx. I'll start with a little information about myself.

    I was always interested in cars since a young age, playing with matchbox, micro machines, hotwheels, lego cars. In any case, it wasnt till I got my licence in 2002 that things started to really pick up. My first car was a 1993 Ford Laser that was pretty riced up. It had rims, blue interior, x2 12" subwoofers and a hotdog muffler. I thought it was cool at the time and it did serve me well while I worked as a pizza delivery guy for Dominos, until I wrote it off.

    Second car I bought was a red 180sx with a vertex kit. The car overall was mildly modified with tein coilovers, some ROH 17" rims and yes, bodykit. The car had been resprayed in red as well. Nothing was done to the sr20det besides a pod filter. It was my first turbo car, and despite my dad saying that turbos were crap, I bought it anyway. Oh yes come to think of it, it did have a Blitz BOV which I did love at the time PSSUUSHH PSSUUSSHHH. Going from a non-turbo POS laser to a 2L turbo was great! I did love the car but then things started to break down. I found that most of the time I was fixing the car! I did buy a few mods like a china spec fmic, dump and front pipe but I never got around to fitting them on. Even though the car wasn't that low by these days standards, the car was pretty low for me and lets just say I cracked the front bar a few times. I was keen to replace it, but that didn't happen either. The thing that scared me the most about the car was when I was driving in the wet and I wanted to overtake someone. Naturally I planted my foot and turned only to realise that I was aqua planing across the road and I literally just glided over the lane I wanted to be in, into the medium strip. My car mounted the curb sideways and skidded to a halt on the grass. Thats when I knew not to accelerate in the wet like that otherwise I might die. It didnt take me long to write off the car, but it was purely an accident at a traffic light intersection (it didn't involve me speeding just not paying proper attention).

    In between this period I had no car, I had my insurance money but no car. That's when I decided I would save up as much money as I could to buy a new car. However I still needed to get around to uni and to work. So I bought a bicycle! I rode to uni for 6months which made me ultra fit (7km there and 7km back in uphill/downhill conditions). Eventually I would just borrow my mothers Tarago to get to work (I did night-shift at Coles) and I thought it was pretty humiliating but I had no other choice! I had concluded that it was better in the long term. I can tell you that having a Tarago did not help picking up chicks at all. In fact, I was pretty much a hermit for that period of time. I did however get my hands on another red laser which my parents bought for my brothers to learn how to drive, but that got consequently stolen. They are actually easy to break into, just need a coat hanger!

    So finally at the end of 2006 I had more then enough money to buy a new car. I couldn't afford a s14, let alone a s15 since they were going for around 20k-30k. R33's were also around that mark so no go. The cars I did look into and contemplate were the DC2 Type R, VTiR, RX7 FC, R32 GTST and of course the 180sx. DC2's were too expensive in WA, they still went for close to 30k whereas overeast you could get one for around 20k. I came really close to buying a black R32 GTST, I did love the sound of the RB20DET but alas it was not meant to be. Eventually I got a call from Yujia and he told me that he had found a great stock 180sx for sale that (SO and SO) just imported. The name actually escapes me right now but he operated at the back of JShop. I went to check it out and yep, it was pretty clean. It only had about 80,000 km and the car overall was stock except for a cat back. So I bought it for 10k (NOTE IN CASH LOL) and thats when it all began again. This time, I thought to myself, I would do it right from the start! First thing I bought were Trust M-SPEC FMIC, then soon after Nismo LMGT-4's, then HSD HR Coils, Msports bodykit. Modifying pretty much accelerated once I started work. That's when I started doing the turbo, cams, manifold, suspension etc.

    Since then, I have pretty much used the car for drags, AHG days and a few cars shows. The car isn't what I would consider super clean at the moment, but I thought I would enter it just for the hell of it. I mean to me, owning a silvia isn't exactly about owning a show room car, after all it is a silvia! Also I couldn't afford it haha. I haven't modified the car too much recently and things are starting to slow down as I reach what I would consider, "the super expensive stage". Especially after I forked out for the TE37SL. Eventually I would like to enter the car into either time attack style racing or drifting or both! Owning a car like this, it is a commitment. There are many times I would have thought about selling it and just giving up, but I am still plowing through. As my friend said, it is like holding on to your "lost youth".

    I hope you plan on connecting the side nipple to a vac source!

    lol yeh i will. But i didnt have any spare vac lines! So hopefully today after work, supercheap sells vac lines and t-piece? no wonder it doesnt boost properly rofl (i knew it wasnt going to drive properly) does that mean it'll only boost at 7psi like you were saying? do i just connect it to the vac line from the hot pipe? hmm i think i'll have to fiddle with the vac lines
