S15GT 2002 Spec S GT

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

Finally back on here! I have had a lot of cars - Cefiro, S13, S14A, JZX100, WRX, and now up to my 4th S15. 
I'll share a few quick pics of my previous S15's and get to the current one! S15 Silvia has always been my dream car, and have been lucky to own a few!

S15 #1 - Yellow 2001 Spec R (ADM) 122,000km 

I swapped my JZX100 for this. It was great, had full cusco suspension, power fc, z32, gt2871rs, and all supporting mods - making around 230kW. I couldn't get over the fact that it was yellow and a mate approached me to buy it with a offer i couln't refuse.

S15 #2 - Pewter 2002 Spec R GT (ADM)

After selling my WRX and not really having a toy in the garage, I was looking around and found this one - 97,000km with log books, dead stock besides alarm and tint. I put coilovers in, and RSR exhaust, JDM pillar gauge, hardrace arms and a brand new set of Work VSXX on it. I really wanted to keep this one forever, but being 193cm and having a sunroof model - the car was too small for me. I owned it for 2 years, but after trying to modify the seat rail (pretty much seat on floor) I had to advertise for sale for a price i was happy with to part with it. Being super clean with logbooks, it sold in only 12 hours

S15#3 - Aspen White 1999 Spec R (JDM)

Shortly after selling my pewter one, a friend tagged me in this white one - Super clean with all genuine aero, all japanese name parts, SSR SP1s etc. Sold the wheels and brought brand new work meister S13P in more aggressive offsets, changed suspension up and cleaned up engine bay etc. Just sold this as I had brought a new SR5 Hilux - the family car! 

which brings me to today.. 

S15 #4 - Brilliant Blue 2002 Spec S GT (ADM)
Sooo I have had a bit of history with this car. In 2005, I wanted to go to my formal in my dream car - and S15. I didn't know anyone with one, and so one day I followed a blue one (this blue one) into the car park. I asked the owner if he could take me to my formal in it, he said yes and we have always kept in touch. Every time I have sold a car, I always ask him if he would want to sell his to me. Finally, after years of asking, he is ready to move onto his next car. This is the first S15 I ever sat in, it has had one owner, with logbooks and still to this day gets serviced at nissan. 107,000km on the clock. This one is the keeper. No sunroof, and I still have my suspension and Work Meisters from the white one to go on this one! Picking it up early next week, plans will be to keep a super clean example of an S15 with Work's most iconic wheels on it! These are getting super hard to come by in this condition, So I don't plan on cutting it up for intercoolers etc - besides rolling guards nothing will be irreversible.

The only things done to it are:
- Chrome wheels (going this week)
- Lowered springs (also going this week)
- Focal splits
- Alpine Type R sub in a carpeted custom corner box
- Alpine IDA head unit
- Alpine 4ch Amp

Everything is else as it rolled off the showroom floor!

Will hopefully keep the posts updated as I get rid of the Hot4s special chrome wheels, get all my parts into it etc!

So its been a while, have been importing a few cars over the last 2 years, so the Silvia hadn't been getting much attention! Have now had a 3" turbo back exhaust custom made, running a little more boost etc. 

Sold the meisters and brought CR Kiwami in Sep 2018:

Owned them for 2 weeks, and decided I already missed the 3 piece life, so ordered another set of VSXX in burning silver. They arrived at my door christmas eve! 

Sizes are
18x9 +9 R Disc
18x9.5 +14 O Disc

Heres a pic from the day i fitted them up:

A few new bits and peices to update! 

Took the rocker cover off for paint, modified to accommodate the new Tomei rocker arm stoppers and gave it a good clean out:

This took some cleaning! 

Finished painted rocker cover:
Colours are phantom mica and hotter than pink mica with polished letters

Fitted back up after installing rocker arm stoppers, along with a modern metal coil pack cover:

Went in for a tune last Tuesday 19/11/19
The boost controller (turbo tech) wasn't working too well, so currently running actuator pressure 16psi

Pretty happy with the power at the moment! The plan from the start was streetable power with plenty of headroom. Will most likely go down the EBC route and run a little bit more
