The S13 chassis is one of the most versatile platforms out there and we just got in this great example why. This 1993 comes to us with only 68K miles on the clock. Finished in the ever popular Super Black (KH3) it looks mean just sitting still. The rear windows have been tinted and still look good just to add to blacked out look. The paint itself is in great shape and really pops. The only blemishes noticed were on the rear deck lid, it appears that it may have originally had the rear spoiler which has since been filled. Subsequently there are some raised dimples that were painted over. The body itself has been well preserved and has minimal blemishes. All of the gaps line up as they should and makes for a very clean factory look. The only change up to the exterior is a set of white 15″ Buddy Club P1 Racing wheels. Otherwise this is one clean example of what a 180SX should be.
The interior has been kept much the same with only minor changes. The shift knob has been replaced with a Nismo knob and the steering wheel is a timeless Momo Race wheel. A Greddy Turbo Timer has been mounted below the dash to the left of the steering column. Otherwise the rest of the interior has been kept factory and in good shape. The driver and passenger side seats have a little bit of bolster wear from getting in and out but is free of any rips or tears. The rear seats are in great shape and appear to have hardly been used. The carpets and headliner are all in equally good condition and free of any notable stains. The dash has fallen victim to the ever common cracking issue as noted in the pictures. The door panels are in fantastic shape and are also fitted with power windows and locks.
Under the hood is much the same, a mostly stock red top SR20DET. The only thing complimenting the clean engine bay is a Mine’s K&N filter in lieu of the factory air box. A Fujitsubo catback exhaust helps liven up the soundtrack of the SR and sounds great at idle. Under load the tone is clean without being an overbearing drone. The two liter fires right up and idles nicely just as you would expect from a mostly stock setup. The engine revs happily and pulls strong to the 7,500 rpm redline once the turbo spools. The clutch engagement is solid and the gear shifts are precise. The 5 speed is a blast to row though coupled with the turbo chatter. To help both with looks and handling a set of Final Konnexion coilovers have been installed. This 180 is an ideal driver’s car the way it sits or would make a killer platform to start a build from!
