Ziptie '97 180sx from Aus



Website/Blog: http://ziptiemotorsports.com.au/
IG: https://www.instagram.com/ztms_joobie/

Hi guys,

So I thought I might start a thread here for my 180. This has been ongoing for a few years now with a bit of a break in the middle due to life. Having owned the car since 2011, I've had it too long now (in my eyes) to part with it.

As a bit of background, I've owned a couple of cars before this one. When I turned 17 and first got my provisional licence (P plates in aus, you get 4 points for the first 3 years of driving and can't drive anything with a certain power to weight ratio), I had a really terrible paying job and spent every cent I had buying an imported r32 GTS-T off a friend (keep in mind, most of these cars were also sold locally in Aus). It was completely standard in every way, and I loved that car. I have lots of pieces left of it going into my 180 as I crashed it, and before I fixed it up, a cyclone came through town and drowned it. No real pics though, as smartphones were only just coming out and I couldn't afford one, let alone a decent camera.



After it was drowned, I gave up on it and bought a few buckets of crap before I bought my next import - a JDM Spec R s15, not the watered down version delivered locally. Won't lie, crashed that too. This is thanks to one of my friends:



Ended up fixing that and selling it to buy my Kouki 180.

This will take a little while to catch up, so bare with me.

2011



So this is what I have to work with for the moment. Doesn’t look like much, but it made 282rwkw on 22psi before I bought it.

Specs so far:

GT3076r .64 exh
Tial 44mm external gate
3 inch turbo back zorst
Hybrid FMIC
Splitfire coilpacks
800cc injectors
Power FC Djetro
HSD Remote Canister Coilovers
32 GTR front calipers
Slotted Rotors (custom drilled 4 x 114.3 pcd)
Bigger fuel pump (unknown)
Stage 1 cams (unknown)
GK Tech Rear Camber/Traction/Toe
Greenstuff Pads
Few other things I can’t think of ATM.

Took it to the drags for its first outing and promptly blew the piston rings in the first run… Managed a 13.4 @ 115mph. 2.6 60ft time let me down a decent amount.



Turns out it was the ring land in cylinder 3 that went bye bye. Kept driving it anyway. Compression is overrated. Only difference is that now it blew wicked flames after giving it the berries. I never claimed to be a smart man. Didn't really do any further damage once I tore it down for inspection.

The next three years are ones I would rather forget when it comes to this car.

I made a mistake in trying to buy an LS1. What I would give to not deal with bogans (read: rednecks) again... Ended up $3.5k down the drain and nothing to show for it.

Before I tore the SR out though, I bought a camera and tried to work out how to use it. Failed miserably. This is how the car looked the last time it had rego.








I can hear you groan from here. Don't judge me.











Stickers were cool 5 years ago. :deke:

If you visited my blog, you will notice the lack of updates. I'm attempting to fill in the blanks between then and now, and will update here once I've gotten it sorted (too many pics, so little time).

So skipping ahead a bit, I'll start getting to the good stuff.

I mentioned using parts from my old Skyline in this car. I pilfered the 5 bolt half shafts for the added strength, the center to go with (as you can't use the skyline half shafts with the 180 center) and rear case for the bigger oil capacity and cooling capabilities.



Everything is only dummy fit in this pic. I have bought all PBM arms for the rear, and am getting new bushes pressed into the standard knuckles. When I can afford it, I'll be upgrading to the new style PBM drop knuckles.

You can read my re-shim guide - full of images - here: http://ziptiemotorsports.com.au/that...el-diff-erent/

While the back end was apart, I bought a set of GKTech reinforcement plates for the rear subframe and had my friends workshop weld them in, re-spray the frame and burn the old bushes out.



Bought new solid subframe risers as the car won't be my daily.



And new goodies to suit the M-Spec r32 brakes all around. Project Mu deliciousness.



And QFM HPX for the calipers which are a 'performance/street' pad. I have friends who run and rave about them.



With any luck, the callipers will be back from the powdercoaters before the year is out, but I won't hold my breath. Getting them coated in black with a small silver flake through the clear.

Engine wise, I've decided I'm sticking with the SR20 for now. I really want to run an RB26, but I also want to drive the car sometime within the next 10 years, and the RB just isn't financially viable. Instead, I'll blow all my money on the tractor motor.



I bought this off a friend. No idea what I did with the other pictures of the head, but I will get some more ASAP.

The head was stripped and rebuilt on the standard bottom end (roughly 60,000kms) using all new Brian Crower gear.

- 264 deg. camshafts in/ex with 12mm lift
- Adjustable cam gears
- Single springs with titanium retainers and billet locks
- New or upgraded (I'm not sure, and not hugely stressed) valves
- New valve guides

The engine also had a new oil pump, was decked and a slightly larger than standard Apexi MLS head gasket fitted with an s15 timing chain tensioner (better version I'm told).

When I bought it, my friend pulled it out of his r32 coupe after only travelling about 20,000kms. For the time being, it will stay together as I know it works and will comfortably make 250rwkw which is my eventual aim.

Started buying a few new bits for it:

Rocker cover with shaved breathers and -10AN fittings welded on in place.





Not a fan of the black crinkle coat. Will be getting it blasted and re-painted at some point similar to my friends workshop car. Will have the Ziptie Motorsports logo milled into it too.




While I've been cleaning the motor up, I sent all of the engine brackets away for blasting and repainting in gloss black for that OEM kind of feel.



Have been sorting an oil filter relocation and cooler while I'm at it. TAARKS relocation block, GREX filter housing with inbuilt thermostat and a homebrand cooler core (only because I picked it up for $20).




Greddy Gauges pictured are 2x Temp and 1x Pressure. Have asked my friend at Proximity (the local workshop I keep mentioning) to order me an ATTAIN gauge pod for s13 whenever his next shipment comes through.

As for round things, I've managed to snag some of my favourite wheels of all time. They'll be refurbished and possibly widened before the car is finished.



SSR SP1 Professor
17x8 -10
17x9 -9

Not a huge fan of the widths, but the offset is pretty spot on. Thats the 17x8 on the rear with a few degrees of camber haha




I'm probably going to sell this pair and try to find some 18x10 in decent offset for the rear. Will make the guards fit the wheels.

New centre caps to suit the wheels.



Couple of quick pics of the car as it has been moved in and out of the shed.

I like your persistence but that s15 was gorgeous. I don't know if I could switch to a s13 after owning that.

Thanks, but the 15 just wasn't me, I prefer the popup 80's style. For street driving, it was the same as the 180 with a slightly newer interior ('99 vs '97). I couldn't really tell the difference chassis wise.

Cheers! I've learnt the hard way about buying cheap parts. Won't be making that mistake again.

I haven't posted this car online really. Thinking a few people might appreciate it.



It's my misso's JZX110 daily. 1JZ-GTE auto. We imported it from Japan through Iron Chef Imports. 2001 model with 24,000kms on the clock, auction grade 4.5A.

It's what Japan got instead of the Camry...





Have done a few little things to it.

Powerhouse Amuse Titanium cat-back exhaust. Sooo pretty!






And just recently I got around to fitting an Apexi Intake kit




I wasn't hugely impressed with the casting of the AFM housing.




So I cleaned it up a little. Not perfect, but better.






Out with the old




Filter was a bit manky



Transferred the AFM




Bolted it in. Almost done.



Brackets line up with standard holes. Kit came with all new bolts.




Done!




Will post more about the 180 soon.

Keeping on with the gathering parts theme, I ordered this at the same time as the Apexi intake kit. Even though Greddy Japan didn't have any in stock on the Thursday, I had it in my hot little hands the following Friday. Ridiculous.



I'm not sure if they normally work over weekends, but they were making calls on the Sunday to say that it was currently being cast and will be shipped the following day. Couldn't believe it. Makes me want to build a Greddy demo car haha








That scratch happened during transport, but I'm not fazed in the slightest as the plenum will be going for powder coating some time in January.

Christmas! Woo!



My brakes came back from the coaters on Christmas Eve. So happy with how they turned out. Ink black powder with a silver flake through the clear.




Will be rebuilding the rears in the next few days as I've had seal kits for a while now. Still need to order seal kits for the front.

Also got a couple of dress-up parts from my better half as the fat man only got me star wars stuff haha

Hahaha yeah... I really should put some perspective in behind that.

Both the 32 and the 15 were crashed Street drifting. Before anyone jumps on and calls me a fuckwit, hear me out.

So until 2013 I was living in a place called Townsville. It's way up north near the best places to see the great barrier reef. The closest raceway that held/allowed drift events was 1400kms away.



While it shouldn't really be justification for it, I've only really been able to afford multiple cars (tow car and drift car) very recently. On top of that, the costs for travelling that far for a 4 hour event are rather prohibitive.

Ever since 2012 though (after I blew up the sr) there has been a local club called MADDinc, running events on a go-kart track in Proserpine. On top of that, I moved to Mackay which is 4-5 hours south of Townsville and only 1.5 hours away from prossy.



I've grown up a bit since then too, and go well out of my way to discourage Street drifting/dragging/racing. I also became the unofficial event photographer for MADDinc and while I've only driven 1 event, I've been attending and helping run/promoting through photos and videos the events since the club started.

In the last month, I've also taken on Presidency of MADDinc (it's a not-for-profit club) and am trying to keep the local events running which is harder than you might think. People are still reluctant to travel that far which really shits me. I guess they use distance as an excuse to get away with streeting so I really can't judge.

Cheers lads. Most people here think its a corolla from front on haha. Honda scene is pretty small.

Had a little bit of time to work on the car lately, so I started prepping to rebuild the rear callipers. Turns out that the kits don't have the mating o-rings, and the only ones I could find at work ended up having too much protrusion. Will need to pick some up from the local supplier.



Really need to clean up this shambles. Too much tooling sitting around. Need to get a job where I can keep it all at work. #firstworldproblems

Probably a good thing that I didn't have the o-rings, as the way some of these parts looked was doing my head in.




The pin closest to the camera was still dirty, the one further away has been hit with brake cleaner and a light sand. As these are the retaining pins for the pad, I couldn't bring myself to drive the car knowing they were in this condition. I ended up ordering new pins all around. They'll come with the seal kits and a new brake light switch stopper (the green plastic bit on the pedal lever) as I've replaced it on every Nissan that I've owned.



Happy with how the retaining springs were coming up.




No real corrosion, just some light marking. Came off with a quick light sand. Ran out of sandpaper, will get more and finish sanding the tight crevasses before fitting.

Didn't take a pic of the pin retainers, but they're fine. Will do so when I assemble the callipers.




Got bored with taking photos of the brakes for no real reason, so I started chopping the loom up for relocation. So far, I've cut out all the sections that I will need to run up to the headlights/horn/Air con receiver-dryer. I'm going about it similar to CamryOnBronze and running those up each frame rail under the guard. My plan was to run the relay box under the dash, but put the fuse box into the battery box. I'll have to wait and see when I get closer to the finish line. For now, here is what I cut out of the loom.



Lots more to come in that department.

While I was online ordering things, I got a bit carried away. I'm getting a price for an ORC twin plate kit shipped, so hopefully that won't be much more than I'm expecting. The purchase price is cheaper than RHDJapan, just hoping they don't rape me on shipping and tax.

So the twin plate would normally kill an SR box after the first clutch kick. So, I kinda gave the standard box to a friend in exchange for modifying some steering components (they'll be done in the next week I hope, so more on that later). Not really an issue, because I bought a z33 6-speed off him a couple of years ago when he was short of cash.

Again, I got carried away when ordering and decided that the best conversion kit is made in Australia by one of the ID boys, Para.

https://www.facebook.com/InsaneDrifters/

No such thing as a 'Pro' drifter here really. These boys are competing at the highest level in Australia though, so that's kinda the same thing.

I'm sending my bell housing down to him in Victoria this week for machining. It gets machined, matched to a plate and dowelled before he test fits it to make sure it all goes together properly.



It comes with a custom made braided line (I'm getting mine done in black), single piece tail-shaft (optional extra, you can get a front half only and keep the two-piece), and a gearbox crossmember that lowers the rear of the box slightly, and still allows use of the standard rubber s13 mount (I'll end up buying a nismo one). But that isn't even the best bit!



It's the newest design shifter. Comes out in the standard location and even features reverse lock-out. Much excite, many wow. No modification of the trans tunnel needs to be made, and everything clears without the need to bash the crap out of your chassis.

I did ask if the lean would affect the motor or the tailshaft pinion angles, and he assures me that it all works fine. The rear of the motor is down approx. 3mm from standard, and that the tailshaft angles work correctly. That includes the single piece ones used in many 350rwkw+ cars down south. If it does look a bit suss when I fit it up though, I'll probably machine or space the diff housing to suit the angles better.

Didn't order the ORC as the supplier was giving the ring around and trying to get more money out of me as the list price was apparently listed as a twin plate instead of a single. Didn't matter that the images showed a twin. Told them to jog on and bought this instead.





Hopefully it will pair with the z33 box without issue.

Not really much of an update, have spent too much time out of town lately. And I broke my DSLR at a drift event recently (it got wet) so phone pics are shit.

Anyway, I decided to start dummy fitting a few parts to see what I need ordered to finish the temporary motor. Started putting the intake on the SR, and worked out which hoses need to be ordered. That will happen over the easter weekend.



I also picked up a few suspension goodies this afternoon.



I'll take some better photos over the weekend when I mount them.

Rack has been moved forward about as far as possible (~30mm from memory), lcas extended 25mm and boxed, and a custom power brace that has been chopped for low cars before being boxed.

Oh and the TAARKS box is full of brand new, genuine Nissan bolts ex Japan. Big lead time on those mofos. Ordered over a month ago. Worth every cent to make sure I have the right gear. Just a shame they dont sell the brake calliper bolts separately.

So much more stuff coming. Waiting sucks.

I also took a few more pics of the Proximity gear.

Power brace:



LCAs with new bushes and balljoints:

Cheers man. Trying to do it the right way so it'll last.

The 110 is a good car. Bit boring, but better than my Patrol haha

I gon dun goofed. HR31 GTSX Coupe.









Don't let the pictures fool you, it is rough. Like housepaint and brush touchups rough. Estimate $2k and it will be drivable as a daily.



Build thread here: http://forum.r31skylineclub.com/inde...topic=158972.0

Have parts for the 180 arriving this week while I'm away for work Should be pretty interesting stuff though.

I get all my parts from YAJ sent to my friends workshop by his contact. Usually with other bits and pieces to save on postage or protect something fragile. It really helps with some things that I can't be home for, because the last thing I want is something valuable stolen from my front door/driveway.

Well, today my friend sent me this photo:



So. Damn. Excited.
