A smart silver Nissan 180sx Sil80 conversion

by Staff | Last updated 30th May, 2016 | Posted in Feature cars

I would like to share with you David Ortega Olesen’s beautifully built Nissan 180sx Sil80 conversion. David hails from Denmark and put this car together himself. David is a serious s13 chassis fan with a history of over ten previous s13’s he also currently has a dedicated 180sx drift car that I would love to share with you.

This Sil80 is David’s street-legal car and so the focus of the build was on daily usability and engine response – no crazy turbos or engine swaps. Power is upped circa 30bhp over standard while aero upgrades update the look of the car, wheels and suspension tighten up the handling.
