S13- Airbox?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, Just spent a nice wad of cash over at JustJap. I've been on the hunt for a cold air box for my pod. Something that will shield it slightly from the heat of the engine bay.

 

Anyway, i checked their site and the only ones close to my model s13 are s14/s15 ones. Where would i be able to find one to suit my 180?

 

If there is, buy all means throw your shoes at me :thumb: Link to said item http://justjap.com/s...&cat=272&page=1

they are sooo easy to make up. make a template out of cardboard, take it to a steel joint and get them to cut out a piece (or diy) out of thin sheet, bend it and that is all

 

shame you spent a lot at just jap though :sick:

Why is that, are they considered expensive? I thought the price wasen't that bad. $175 for a HF cat, 120 for a alloy overflow tank. list went on... Hmmm, i have a cert 1 in Engineering. Can mig and stick weld but not tig :( The money i could save buy buying one :blush:

 

Edit, now i have this massive craving to buy a tig welder :drool:

Streeter always has awesome prices.

 

He was going to charge 7000 Yen for a commission for me when I wanted a full set of 18" Work emotion rims. That works out only about $85 so it really isn't much

Far out! I really appreciate your help. I think he will be my new middle man!!

 

Quick question, what's postage cost's like from japan?

quick example:

Nismo GT LSD Pro TT 1.5way for ECR33 RB25DET

 

¥123,500 including comission and postage (took less than 10 days to arrive)

 

so around $1490 total at the current exchange rate (postage was around 400, though you pay much less if you go sea freight. but that takes around 6 weeks)

 

looks pretty good compared to JMS (and that would need postage on top!!)

or 1900 through just jap :doh:

The air box is instituted for the happiness of the guile of the people in different parts. The sway of the thepensters.com review is assimilated for future offers. The grant of the finance is done for the improvement of the changes for injunction with the approval of the officers.
