  1. CARS SPOTTED : SOUTH AUSTRALIA

    White 180SX driving down phillip hwy everyday around 3:30-4:00pm.
  2. Hi guys, Ever since I've had my 1995 180SX Blacktop SR20DET, I've had an issue with it. If I let the car idle in neutral for 3+ minutes and begin to drive off, the car will rev to approximately 2K and then immediately start aggressively choking and "spluttering" (kinda sounds like it's hit the limiter) and the revs will not increase until I shift into second, in which case it will get to 2K and the same will happen, until I shift again into 3rd and everything will start to operate normally again. I also think maybe my car isn't running as good as it should be. Sometimes it feels a little sluggish while I'm driving (takes a while to build speed, increase revs) especially at low RPM, other times it doesn't feel too bad. I've replaced: The fuel pump O2 Sensor Spark plugs Air filter w/ pod filter No major mods to the car... intercooler and piping is the only notable mod. I reckon it's ECU/timing related but I couldn't find the plug in the driver side kick panel or under the dash or anything. Any ideas?
  3. Hi guys, Anyone got an AFM I can borrow? Car occasionally goes into limp mode if I idle too long and suspect AFM. Cheers, Josh
  4. Hardtuned Cruise 26/10/13

    Have you had many f**kwit drivers on previous cruises? Considering jumping onboard but can't really be bothered with any police/unwanted attention.

    Think you might be the dude that served me when I brought spark plugs (coppers, which I had to gap myself)/oil filter/oil filter claw last friday at around 5pm lol
  6. Strange running issue - 180SX - SR20DET

    Thanks for the replies guys. I've already cleaned the AFM and it looked pretty good anyway, but still worth trying to replace it and seeing if that works. I just think it's wierd that it only happens if I leave it idling for a while. Might try the TPS as well. Thanks.

  8. 180sx wiper problem

    Also consider checking the voltage supply TO the motor to make sure you're getting enough power to the motor and it's not a problem in your circuit.

    Can you check them with a multimeter?

    You sure it wasn't a pearl white 180SX? With terrible rims? I drive past there everyday at around that time. Yep that's me. I fixed the front bar on the weekend haha
  11. 180sx / s13 meet up and cruise

    I'd prolly be down for a cruise or a gentle hills run? I'm from the northern suburbs (but I'm not a derro, and I have all my teeth )
  12. Hi guys, Please take the time to check out my vocal cover of a song I've recently been really into. I am in no way an experienced singer/vocalist (mainly an acoustic guitarist, but I've been singing on and off for a few months now), but since I purchased a microphone and I want to get into studio recording, I thought I would kick off with a simple YouTube cover. After a lot of attempts I've finally got a result I'm reasonably happy with. At the beginning of the video my pitch is pretty terrible but it improves a bit later on. Recording Effects: Reverb (which is an echo-like effect) and compression (controls the dynamics of the mix). No pitch correction used. Recording Gear: Shure KSM27, Focusrite Saffire 6 USB Mixer
  13. Price : $60 Condition : New Selling a BRAND NEW, unused oxygen sensor to fit Nissan engines such as the SR20DET. NTK P/N OZA395-E2 RRP: $80 Approx. Thread size: 18mm Selling it as it did not fit my aftermarket exhaust system after I purchased it. Pretty firm on price but I might lower a little bit. Thanks, Josh
  14. Hi guys, Running an SR20DET in a 1995 180SX. I've had the car for quite a while now and I'm pretty certain it has a fuel issue. Firstly, it's as if the car gradually loses a bit of power after around 15 minutes of driving. It doesn't go awfully slow, but it definately feels sluggish, and I don't feel as much "boost" as I normally would. It's kind of like driving up hill. Secondly, if I have the car running idle for 5 minutes or so, when I begin to drive off the car will get to around 2K RPM then completely start dieing in the arse as if it's running out of fuel or getting too much fuel. I then have to short shift up to about 4th or 5th gear before I can get a higher rev range. Not too sure what I can do to fix the problem.. I've checked for fuel leaks, cleaned the AFM, changed the spark plugs for shits and giggles (haven't checked the leads for resistance yet) etc. I was going to buy an ECU tool from ECUTalk a few months ago, but can't for the life of me find the input plug. So there you have it, I'm in need of some professional help! Cheers lads
  15. 180SX/SR20DET Fuel/ECU Issue?

    Aftermarket (Walbro) fuel pump did not solve the issue.
  16. 180SX/SR20DET Fuel/ECU Issue?

    Thanks bud, I'll give it a suss.
  17. 180SX/SR20DET Fuel/ECU Issue?

    Alright guys may as well invest in a new one. On that note, where abouts in the boot is the fuel pump cover? The clown who owned the car before me put sound dampener over every square inch so I can't see it.
  18. 180SX/SR20DET Fuel/ECU Issue?

    I suppose this is sufficient then? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HIGH-VOLUME-FUEL-PUMPS-255-LPH-RACE-EFI-REPLACES-WALBRO-INC-FITTING-KIT-/281003290654?pt=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories&hash=item416d19f01e&_uhb=1#ht_2167wt_1159
  19. 180SX/SR20DET Fuel/ECU Issue?

    I considered the fuel pump, but don't wanna jump into the expensive stuff first.
  20. Pink Ping Pong Balls

    A day before his 15th birthday, the son of a wealthy family was asked by his father, `Well my son, what would you like for your birthday?' The son hesitated a moment and his father's thoughts leapt ahead to a new computer and similar things. However, his son had had a new computer only recently and could have a new one any time he wished. Finally, the son said, `Father, I have everything a boy could wish for, but there is one thing I would really like. I would love to have a pink ping pong ball.' The father was rather astonished at this wish, but said, `If it is a pink ping pong ball that you want, a pink ping pong ball you shall have.' And so, the next day, the son was given as his bithday present a pink ping pong ball. The boy took the ball to his room and the next morning the pink ping pong ball was gone. The father was mildly surprised but decided not to say anything. The pink ping pong ball, however, was never seen again. The next year, a day before his 16th birthday, the father asked his son what he would like for his birthday. `Father,' replied the son, `I have everything a boy could possibly wish for, but there is one thing I would really, really like. I would love to have a tenpack of pink ping pong balls.' The father was more surprised than the year before, but kept his curiosity at bay, for he knew that his son had a right for privacy. he said therefore, `If it is a tenpack of pink ping pong balls that you want, a tenpack of pink ping pong balls you shall have.' And so, the next day, the son was given as his birthday present a tenpack of pink ping pong balls. The boy took the tenpack of balls to his room and the next morning, not a single ball remained, merely the empty husk of the tenpack. The father wondered where ten pink ping pong balls might disappear to, but decided not to say anything. The pink ping pong balls, however, were never seen again. The next year, a day before his 17th birthday, the son was asked by his father what he would like for his birthday. `Father,' said the son to this, `I have everything a boy could wish for, but one thing would make my happiness complete. I would dearly want a carton of pink ping pong balls.' The father was beyond surprise, but decided to make sure he had not misheard. `A carton of pink ping pong balls?' `A carton of pink ping pong balls,' the boy confirmed. `I can't understand your fascination with pink ping pong balls,' said the father, `but if it is a carton of pink ping pong balls that you want, it is a carton of pink ping pong balls that you shall have.' And so, the next day, the boy was given as his birthday present a carton of pink ping pong balls. The boy was delighted and took the carton to his room. The next day, miraculously (as if by magic, even) the pink ping pong balls had all disappeared. `Dear son,' said the father, `I must ask now, what do you do with all those pink ping pong balls?' The son, however, was reluctant to tell him. `Please humour me, dear father.' The carton of pink ping pong balls, however, was never seen again. The next year, it was clear that the son would get a car, but the father felt that, perhaps, his son also had some other wish apart from the obvious. So, one day before the son's 18th birthday, the father asked him whether he had a special wish for his birthday. `Dearest father,' the son started, `I have everything a young man could possibly want, but there is one craving in me. I would, more than anything, want a warehouse full of pink ping pong balls.' One of these years, his father thought, I should get to the bottom of this. However, he decided to humour his son's wish. At least he had been wise enough to buy shares in a pink ping pong ball factory. The next day, the son was given the address of a warehouse where all his new pink ping pong balls were stored. The son was delighted and decided to spend the next night in the warehouse rather than at home. The following morning, the son stepped out of the warehouse, but it seemed to be empty otherwise. The father had a closer look and indeed, apart from empty cardboard boxes, nothing was left inside the warehouse. No pink ping pong balls were left. The following year, one day before the son's 19th birthday, the father braced himself for another warehouse of pink ping pong balls. He asked his son what his deepest desire was and he had not been entirely wrong. `Father, you have made me very happy these last years and this year I ask of you a shipload of pink ping pong balls if at all possible.' It was possible, if only because the father had by now bought each and every factory of pink ping pong balls in the country. The next day, the father took his son to the harbour and showed him a huge tanker and told his son that there were millions, billions, trillions of pink ping pong balls in there. `Father,' the son said, `You've made me very happy yet again.' That night, the son spent on board the tanker. The next morning, not a single of the pink ping pong balls could be found, but the son was happy. A few days before his 20th birthday, however, the son had a terrible road accident and was taken to the hospital. His father visited the young man in hospital. `My dear son! Can I bring you anything to make you feel better?' Weakly, the son sat up in bed. `Father, dearest father, grant me this wish; just one tenpack of pink ping pong balls.' The father held his son's hand tightly. `Whatever you wish my son, but I have to give you one condition. Even if it may be embarrassing, I must know what you did with all those pink ping pong balls.' `Very well, father, but please indulge me first. I will tell you whatever you wish to know after you have given me the ten pink ping pong balls.' The father thought that was fair enough and the next day brought his son the ten asked for pink ping pong balls. The son smiled weakly but seemed too weak to talk. `Son, I leave these pink ping pong balls with you and shall come back tomorrow to ask of you what you have done with all those pink ping pong balls.' The son nodded weakly. The next day, less than surprisingly, no pink ping pong balls could be found in the son's hospital room. `Now, my dearest son, apple of my eye, treasure of my life, please tell me what you did with all those pink ping pong balls,' the father requested. The son nodded and the father gripped his hand tighter. `I-' the son started and sat up a bit, swallowing with a dry mouth. `I- I-' Then he died.

  25. Hi guys, Having a hard time reading the fault codes on my 180sx sr20det with E5 ecu. If you look at the images below, there is nowhere on the back of the ecu to turn the fault finding skrew or find an led. Any ideas? Thanks!
