Just wondering whats the difference between the two turbos available...

I really like a s15 right now, but its a 2000 model...not a 1999

I believe the ball bearing turbo is in the 99? whats the difference between them and the model years following the 99's? 2000, 2001 etc

Turbo Question

Here in Australia we were always told the late models had the ball bearing turbo?
My mate has a 2001 model with plain bearings, (we actually removed it during some mods and had a sticky) my 2002 model (last build version in June 2002) as far as I'm aware and have been told and read about in new car reviews, etc, has the ball bearings:confused:
Of course, this could be an Australian only thing like the Spec S here has a turbo.
Cheers,
Ron.

I can't confirm that, as there is no S15 FAST CD beyond 7/2001 :( The only way to be 100% certain after that date would be to check the PN plate on the turbo.
