Right,having found that SOME S13 200SXs are cheap and that i can get insured on one fully comp for 480-600 quid (excess dependant quote) as of next month im really wanting one.Few questions

1.What are the good points about this car
2.Bad points?
3.I know they rust on the tailgate,anywhere else?
4.Reliable mechanically?
5.Tuning potential (i hear stage 2=280 brake is not too hard to reach and is "safe"


A mate of mine at work has one,its been off the road for ages as somethin happened (which i dont know ATM) but the nearside rear wheel is pointing in at the front by about 20-30 degrees,
1.What could that be?
2.Could i fix it cheap
3.What should i offer him to take it off his hands

Its a facelift model,in white,with no obvious sign of rust,aftermarket exhaust,gearknob and 18s(i think,17s a maybe)

Ill get more info on it when he's back in work

I spotted a few on autotrader for less than a grand,are these worth it or will they be dogs.I dont mind gettin my hands dirty if they have small problems(shite idle,blowing turbo gasket etc)

OK, S13's, Ive had a fair few, inc one over 350bhp, so heres the low down:

Bad points:

Chocolate cranks - the CA18 IS very prone to big end problems and is expensive to fix
Rust: Under the spoiler, rear of the sills, chassis legs behind the rear wheels, top of the front suspension turrets.
Rear subframe bushes are also prone to failure, again 200 for Nismo bushes (Nissan dont sell them without a subframe) and similar money to fit them.

Turbo gaskets are an easy job (Or at least when you have done it a few times wink )

280bhp is quite possible, but you need a fair bit of stuff to make it reliable, including a metal headgasket, uprated clutch, bigger turbo, Stage2 ecu and maybe bigger injectors and MAF.

Hope that helps smile

Any idea why this cars got a wonky wheel then,could that be the chassis leg or subframe rusted away??? or more likely to be buckled hub or something?

If the wheel is wonky enough to be noticed by eye, my guess is that its gone in to a kerb sideways and bent one of the rear arms - I doubt normal wear and tear could do damage that noticable confused

Depends how much damage has been done really confused

If its effected the chassis (and twisted it) I wouldnt go near the car, if its just the rear arms and maybe a hub - 50ish for parts....

Think ill get this one of my mate sooner rather than later (as long as the chassis is ok) cos i'll be able to offer him pittence for it,somethin tells me he's not willing to put effort in to sell it so if i dont offer for it it'll just rust away where it is,so ill take it off him and work on it myself to get it back on the road while using my scort as a daily driver til its ready,then sell my car

Spoke to the lad last night and apparently its only a tie rod thats died, altho he says the car nut and owner of the motor club on camp is gonna change all 4 for him,and put a new floor in (not sure if the current one is an MOT fail but he's puttin one in and undersealing it for him) all this work is gonna cost 400 quid apparently. Think ill look at it myself,buy it for less than 600 and then do the tie rod myself,save the floor til next year if it can last

I'd steer clear of any car that has to have whole panels replacing - if it's been left to rot for that long, you have to wonder about the rest of the car. I'd never buy another car with even a dot of rust on ever again.

How about you get a nice AE86, like this one (snigger):

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1984-TOYOTA-COROLL...1QQcmdZViewItem

It'd be nice if it wasn't an absolutely rustbucket - legendary cars though.
