Heres my silvia...
Bought it stock standard auto

Done a manual conversion , got coilovers , then diff and shimmed the hell out of it :thumbs: , was going to do the whole engine swap for a DET , but thought doing a +T conversion would be alot more fun and it was and has been rewarding..

Currently has

-DE engine :p
-Tomei 740cc injectors
-255lph Walbro fuel pump
-Tomei fuel pressure regulator
-S15 T28bb turbo
-3" front pipe
-3" straight through exhaust
-Flash bleed valve
-Front mount

and a few other little things , but is currently making 180kw atw on 10psi or 244hp for you hp guys :p, retuning on 14psi to make 210kw atw.. but is a on going project as you know, Once it blows ill forge it with high comp pistons and do some head work and being a mechanic it wont be hard :D..

heres how she looks now





Going another 15mm lower in rear when i lathe the rears thread and another 10mm in the front but need a Front lip , end caps and a dmax wing woop

Looking good!
Just wondering about the s15 you had, what suspension did you have fitted, and how did you get on with em?
Also what were your wheel and tyre sizes, offset etc?
Stance and wheel size looked perfection!

I had BC Red Inverted coilovers with 10kg and 8kg springs, They were pretty good but im getting BC Gold as they go lower and instead of 10kg and 8kg, ill go 8kg n 6kg.

The rims were 8" front with 215 35 tyres with +35p with a 25mm spacer up front with an effective offset of +10p and rear had 9" with a 235 40 tyre and 15mm spacer with an effective offset of +20p..

But with the S14 im going 18x10 +20 all round and wondering if it will work but it should work with correct pull and camber haha..

OMG, I love the S14! I actually put my car up for sale yesterday in hopes of picking up an S14 Kouki. The wheel fitment on them is so much better and I'm looking to go with a DET instead of my Spec S N/A.
