I own a 1996 B14 200SX SE with stock manual seats. Here's my problem, I'm 6'1" and my head is only an inch away from the roof (little more than an inch if I sit just right under the sunroof). Sucks going over the wrong bump, so I was wondering, would a racing seat or a custom bucket from someone like APC or Bride lower the position so that my head isn't so close to the roof, or will it stay the same?

It's not the seats themselves that will dictate the seat height, it's all in the brackets you use to mount the seats that dictate how high the seat will sit.

You could do a cheap fix and bolt in a pair of B13 SE-R front seats. They sit you at least an inch lower due to the seat's position on the rails. And they will bolt right in w/ no modification needed. You could go the custom seat route also, but just keep an eye on how high the mounting brackets will position the seat when mounted.

<laughs> No, I guess I just have a taller torso than you do.
I'll probably have an easier time finding B13 seat brackets than NX2000's. Heh, but, if I find the NX, I'll also get the brakes from it as well.

Pull a gansta lean and recline the seat, so when you look left you're looking out the back window. I'd go for those b13 se-r seats, know a guy that did that with his b14, cause his seat was broken, turns out a little lower. Those bumps would suck, but then again I wouldn't really know cause I'm nowhere close to 6 feet.

Yeah, I remember that one. The guy had a "racing" seat, but the seat was too tall, so they took the seat bottom of the orginal stock seat and put the back of the "racing" seat on that, then recovered everything.
