You could try to find a used Skyline GTR cat. I know that the R32 one fits the S15.

But I think most people keep their cats for MOT.

Rent

Ah i see - this would be a one off to pass a test in Jersey, so if anyone has one i could borrow / rent that would be handy.

I am an importer (www.bluchip.gg) who has been trading for 7 years, but Guernsey being Guernsey we are pretty much stuck for parts etc.

The S15 is the only on on the island.

I would only need it for about a month and would pay postage costs etc.

Unless you know of any breakers that have S15's in the UK?

Someone mentioned a Skyline GTS R33 used the same CAT - do you know if this is correct ?

Cheers

JAMIE

I have a cat in the garage which I wont need for a couple of months.
I can let you borrow it for free if you drill out the chopped nuts on one of the flanges :)

Hi Yakozan,

If you could do that for us that would be a great help.

I am the importer trying to sort this out for Phil V who
has bought the car from an existing customer of mine.

Here in Guernsey we don't have any tests - we weigh the
cars (?) and depending on how heavy they are, that's how
much tax you pay - normally about ?150 for a year for an
S15 ! That's it - fuel is about 45p a Litre too ! But then again
the speed limit is 35mph - 25 in some parts and 12 in the
small roads !

They don't care that the car could be billowing out black
smoke or only have 3 wheels !!!

MOT, ESVA - what's that ? !!!

But Jersey is more like the UK - but not to the point the whole
car has to be taken back to standard.

Has quite a few mods - so no chance of getting it back to standard
for UK use -unless someone wants to pay ?3k+ to have all the bits
swapped - you boys have a hard time of it in the UK and Europe huh !

Check it out here http://www.bluchip.gg/bc30.htm

Best thing to do is liase directly with Phil for his address etc
to send it to and we'll take it from there, or email me at
jamie@bluchip.gg

Cheers for all your help and if you are ever needing a new car / new
bits from Japan we might be able to help.

We have a new auction site that's going to be up and running
within a week so check it out.:notworthy:

Thanks for all your help guys

ESVA is the new test standard for cars made after 96 or 97 (i think??? Im sure some one will correct!) Where by you need to rent a model report and the car has to meet the points and have the parts described in the report... this is for UK roads anyway... i knew Jersey was tax free... but doesnt it still need to conform to UK standards?

Thats why it can be a pain in the ass bringing modified S15's over... as people always end up posting on here or sxoc for OEM parts!!!!

I've sent a PM to PhilV.

Remember that I'm located in Sweden though. So shipping should be more expensive compared to getting a cat from the UK.

Oh right didnt realise that - we are in Guernsey Channel Islands near France - Phil V who bought the car will liase direct with you then - There is a guy in the UK who offered us one so i guess it depends on shipping costs etc,

Thanks for all you help

Sure, no problem. i guess Phil will let me know if you want to borrow it.

The bolts still needs to be drilled out og the flange. I've tried to do it myself. But I think the bolts are hardened steel so it's going very very slowly with a low-tech electric hand-held drilling machine. That's why I just left it on a shelve in the garage. Have to do something about it though before I take the car out this spring as I must do the MOT first thing when it gets out.

Jersey has a system valled DVS &VRD, its not as bad as the UK, all we need to do is pass heigh requirements (for practicallity but you can then lower it after) pass emission standards (thats why u need the cat but then decat it as its not yearly these tests its a one off) and light patter, alignment and strength for which you need E marked lights or Japanese equivelent also need speedo to indicate MPH and have a fog light which must have a button inside that lights up so u know when its on at night.

its not that bad

Speedo

OK guys - next question - where do we get a MPH speedo face that fits for an S15 ? Got one sent down but it's the wrong one!!! Typical.

Or do you use the electronic converters - been quoted about ?40 for one ?

Cheers

i think the most common mod for this is an electronic converter fitted behind the dash somewhere.

And then open the speedo up and tape a mph sticker over the km/h text.

Don't know if that's required though, but I think this is the most common way to do it.
 

Nicely

Yep, that's it. The 180Km/h speedo turns into a 180MPH speedo and starts adding miles to the odo. You may also want to get the odo recalibrated to miles. It depends on your customer (mine has had this done, and I'd want it doing again). There are people who do this legally.

Adding the converter also removes the speed limiter. Well...it actually moves it from 180Km/h (112MPH) up to 180MPH :D Can't really see this being a problem on Jersey though... :p
