Written on: 17/09/2010

awww, what a beauty. I`ve done everything myself except the custom build body kit... but I know the motor already as the palm of my hand and boy, it`s a pleasure working on those things. It`s a mean machine and what a beast! My 200sx is now 19 years old, and not a day old problem found, except for the lot of power it produced and stripped my 2nd and 3rd gear!! It`s value for maoney… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/03/2009 by Jay Ballistic (1 review written)

I've had my Nissan RS13 200sx for 7 years and never had any major issues with it until something got inside the engine after some maintenance and that was at nearly 130k miles! I've heard the horror stories about the big-ends etc, a specialist told me to never take it past 6500rpm on the standard crank and it would be fine, seems he was right! If you have an S13 I think it really is a case of look after it and it will look after U! Change the oil every 2500 miles and use ONLY high quality… Read Full Review

I liked it! I wanted it! I bought it! Problem is the car at the moment isn ' t producing power AT ALL! I don ' t know if its not mapped on the bigger turbo or if its because the bearings is starting to clucking but it isn ' t a bearing knock, not yet that is. And people don ' t want to dyno because of the bearing… Read Full Review

I started off with a Kia Pride then my Focus tdci sport and 2 weeks ago i bought a 92 Nissan 200sx for £500. It is in mint condition, runs well looks great, sounds better than my neighbours scooby (maybe)! The power quality, with my mates driving prelude 2.2's, Audi 2.8 v6's, zs 2.5 v6's etc a needed something faster, and defenetly found it! Have drove all of the above and would never compare! Only bad thing is there's a leak coming in my boot which I can't find, been told either lights or… Read Full Review

“The Nissan 200 SX Turbo S13 is for those of you who...”

Written on: 21/03/2006 by lordy84 (1 review written)

The Nissan 200 SX Turbo S13 is for those of you who want a fast car for not a lot of money. Mine was £1350 about 9 months ago with 89,000 miles. For that price the turbo had been replaced and the car was tuned to stage one (approx 200bhp). I bought the car with the knowledge I was only going to do low mileage in it. This is because the big end bearings on these cars tend to wear out between 90 000 and 130 000 so be careful! The ride is very comfortable, and the steering is very quick, the car… Read Full Review

I've only had the Nissan 200 SX Turbo S13 sports car for 1 week but it feels like a lifetime, as it's realy easy to get used to. Confortable interior (at least the front seats) Hopefully i'll be able to bring it with me to America! Does anyone know the procedures to register this car in Florida even though is's now registered in Romania?

Written on: 02/11/2004 by Andy R Kent (1 review written)

I've owned two manual Nissan 200 SX Turbo S13 Sports Cars and agree that power for buck, there's no comparison. I travelled approximately 40,000 miles between them.

I had a ball of a time wasting my Bridgestones on a track day. Talk about adrenaline rush, flat out power slides on the corners and through the chicane, I learnt more about that car's control in a day than a year of road use. The steering is quick but because the power steering is too light it makes reading the road surface a… Read Full Review

I got my H Reg, Red Nissan 200 SX Turbo S13 this year (2004) with 45,000 miles on the clock. It is a beauty. Needs work but its 14 years old so of course it will. Anyone who pays 8 to 15 grand on a new car is mad when things like this are openly available. I did have a Citroen C3, what a mistake. This is a real car for real men. Just be careful in the wet with the rear wheel drive… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/04/2004 by stu106 (1 review written)

Love the Nissan 200 SX Turbo S13, real fast and very well built. Only had it about two weeks so far and loving it. However already run into my first problem, some air is escaping somewhere in the engine bay, making an awful noise as it bypasses the exhaust. When it started, it only sounded at maximum boost now it does it at tickover. Not a big problem, just a leak but garage can't find it. Its going to have to be stripped, could take up to 6 hours labour at £70 an hour.

But is it worth… Read Full Review

yes you're right,my 1992 200 sx s13 has a problem with the front passenger side brake caliper lower slide seizing,it's a pain in the ass and has to be heated to release it approx every 6 months.You know when it needs doing as when you brake it makes a sort of grinding/squealing noise.

Your not wrong about the turbo giving up the ghost, i've had my 92 auto, a week and it's started to leak oil between the compresser casing's. It's a good thing really as I could not feel the turbo kicking in. Gotta sort it now an upgrade me thinks?

The Nissan 200 sx turbo (S13) is a mad car. After my 16v calibra,the acceleration was terrifying.I love the look of those Golf GTi boys in my rear view mirror. Even made some guy in a 328ci feel stupid. Started using BP Ultimate fuel and got two 0-60 times of 6.6, and thats with two people in the car and no mods.Its all nuts. Most people have no idea what the s13(turbo) is capable of and thats what I love… Read Full Review

I have one word on oil: REDLINE! Redline synthetic oil is what you need to use in any car, but definitely in a turbocharged car. Most of the racers I know use Redline.

Written on: 03/04/2003 by p3t3-th0m. (1 review written)

This Nissan 200 sx turbo (S13)is a wolf in sheeps (ish) clothing! It has blistering performance, with an awsome turbo kick that puts passengers right back in their seats. If you didnt wear seat belts before, you will now! Have fun leaving cars for dust when you drop into second and third, and toy with the back end as you drift around we roundabouts! Then, if thats not enough you can uprate everythign on this car to the spec you want, making it an unbeatable coupe - afterall thats what it is… Read Full Review

Good review of a fantastic, yet, generally overlooked sports coupe. Try P.S.G.com, for some fantastic body-styling. Blitz power filter, and dump valves help to push the car to a whole new level.

Yes, I have the ONLY manual available for the 200SX
<br>
<br>Haynes never did one, and the others made dont actually specify maintenance for the S13 (even though it says ont he front it does!)
<br>
<br>Its 24mb though and consists of 600 pages, so drop me a mail if you want one
