I've seen 2 S14 Silvias in Japan that have converted there front end to a 180SX. Has this been doen here in the states? I love the look and would like to do the swap myself. If anyone has done it I'd like to talk to you or if you know someone that has I'd like to talk to them. IMHO that combination is the sweetest look for any S13,14,15
Thanks guys

I found this post in the Basic forum...He swapped on a S13 front-end on his S14. Personally I think it looks like crap. I posted my feelings towards that conversion in that post, and I simply think the lines of the body don't suite the front-end. I have never been a fan of throwing on different front-ends on different cars, so I cannot really support this S13.4 conversion. Some swaps look okay, like a S15 front on a S14 body, cause the body lines are somewhat similar. But a S13 on an S14 is plain is out of hand IMO. Anyway here is the link to that post...

Thank you for the link. I agree, his swap does not look very good. The 2 that I have seen from Japan look much better. Each one used flared front fenders along with a nice vented hood. I'll try to find pics and maybe post a poll on there looks. Thanks again
