G’day All. The 74 180b sss build has been going at a snails pass due to a young family. I have recently slapped myself in the face and am focused on finishing my 610 with SR20DET. I am just curious to read any other 180b sss builds that are currently on going.

Datsport SR20 conversion kit
Silvia S15 Blacktop SR20DET - 6 speed gearbox
R200 LSD - SW Motorsport
Datsport adjustable rear cross member with rear discs.

All that's happened with my 180B SSS project over the last few years is that its become a possum toilet......

Any photos of your possum toilet? Perhaps the process may inspire you to either get back in or sell.

I am now waiting on a new driveshaft from the 6speed to the R200 LSD.

I think the tacho connection may pose a different approach, any words of wisdom out there on the topic? Fitting a blacktop SR20DET out of a Silvia S15. I have the 71/72 model dash to put in. I am tossing up between keeping it original (preferred), and kitting the housing out with new tech gauges. Would love to hear any stories.

Possum has taken up residence in a cardboard box up in the roof of the shed, when he has to go, he walks along one of the joists to a spot directly above the 180B and takes aim. At least he doesn't do it on the 1600. Perhaps he's just expressing his view on the desirability of the different Datsun models...

I'll get back into it one day. I always thought when the kids were older Id have more time, but something else always comes up to take up my time.

I love the dash in my 72 180B SSS - I'd keep it original if at all possible (but that's just me). No idea on how to make it work with SR20 though. Maybe talk to a guage place and see if you could get them to adapt modern guts to the old tacho ?

Hi all. Some steps are happening with the build. About to get the exhaust done. Any words of wisdom from anyone? The plan is to run the stock SR20DET with a slightly larger exhaust to allow for an upgrade later. I am thinking 2.5 inch through to the muffler with 3.5inch tip.

Finally got her into surreal cars south coast NSW for exhaust and intercooler work. Stay tuned for more. RIP BAZ from Datsport!
