Horrid Paint Job I Know, But I Got A Steal. Engines Out And Getting My SR Shipped To My Shop. And I'll Paint Her After I Put Koguchi's Kit On With 18 Inch White Nismo's. What Do Y'all Think About That.

I'm Thinking Of Adding The Yashio Flares To Put 9.5's Up Front And 10's In The Rear. I stripped The Seats and I'm About To Start A Rollcage 6-8 Point.

Also Whats The Best Output For A Turbine System For A SR(HKS, Trust). No Idea On Exhaust I Like The Angle Trend On The End Anyone Know A Good Exhaust Thats Sound Japanese But Has An Angle

What do you plan to paint it? Also since this is a drifting forum I woulda kinda take it that you want to drift it....18 inch wheels are huge. They're pretty dam big which means more money for tires, also why white wheels? White wheels look really fake I think, the only white wheels that look good on a car is on Koguchi's green 180SX. I think you should go with 17's tops. Sounds like a good project though.

For exhaust on my cars I just go with a straight through muffler usually cannister style and have all my pipes custum bent out of 2.5 inch stainless steal. Max flow period with a warranty.

If he's got this much money then the 5 lug swap shoiuldn't be hard. I say stop going drifter style and actually get drift mods. LSD,coilovers,strutbars, and SR should be top of the list. And please don't get 18's, this isn't a ludacris video. Thank you.

i agree here.....

drift parts first,

drift style last.

that's just my opinion.

personally....just keep it flt blk on some cheap 16's or 17's
cage it, LSD, and if you wanna' body kit go for something cheap
like PDM's kit. but hey that's just me.

then again if you're a professional drifter and you got all the goods
and the skilz...then there is nothing left but the style.

ka turbo set up.

take the money that would be for a sr or a ca swap and use it for the ka. you'll be able have easily attainable parts. instead of gettin raped for a water pump from japan
