What is 180sx?
Automobile released in the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) by Nissan, produced between 1989 and 1999 due to populatity. Based on the Silvia S13 chassis, this car was re-released with a fastback and retractable headlights, as well as a restyled body. Initially, the car released with a 1.8L turbocharged CA18DET engine, but was later replaced with the well-known SR20DET 2.0L turbocharged engine. Major features of the car include it's rear-wheel drivetrain, excellent curb weight and near perfect weight distribution. This car was released as the 240SX in the USDM after recieving a larger (normally aspirated) engine. Popular modifications include the Sil80 mod (Silvia S13 frontend, 180SX backend) and the OneVia (vice versa.)
Several 180SX's were exported to Australia due to it's proximity to Japan and right-hand drive style.
180sx (RPS13) in Japan is the same chassis as the 240sx hatch back in the US. The 180sx in Japan is equipped with either a CA18det or SR20det power plant. In America we were cursed with the KA24de power plants in all 240sx’s. These cars are known for they're impressive handling and controllable over steering characteristics. Dori Dori Dorifto-Monkey!!
