Hey guys, just thought Id share with you my S15 that ive had for a few months now, want to keep a little bit of a diary for this one as I plan on keeping it for a while.

This is my 2001 Spec S, I picked it up at the beginning of June and it was my 7th car ive owned, Prior cars include S13 NA, R34 NA, R32 GTR and an M35 Stagea :S. Ive always loved the look of these so I was on the look out for the most tidy and close to stock S15 I could find. Found this one just 5 minutes from my place and picked it up for just under 12k with 146 thousand on the clock a new battery and six months rego!

Completely stock apart from some mad altezza taillights, an auto barn muffler and some hideous wheels.

Posted Image

First thing I did was lose the wheels it came with and chuck my R34 GTR's

Posted Image

I had these on my stagea but decided they were a little too big, sold them and got some stockos till I found some wheel I really liked.

Posted Image

Gave the car a real good look over at work and oil change, and found a leaking lower radiator hose and completely filled sparkplug tubes!

Posted Image

Posted Image

So I started collecting some service parts(all genuine Nissan) for a major service including Diff and Gearbox oils, coolant, rad hose, rocker cover and tube seals, plugs, Splitfire coilpacks, fuel filter, aux belts and Brake fluid!

Posted Image

The seals were pretty rooted! Next on the list was to switch those horrible lights for some Crystal LED's

Posted Image

And I finally landed on some gorgeous wheels, Desmond Regamasters, wrapped in RSR's! As well as getting some personalised plates for my 21st

Posted Image

Then I started attacking the suspension with some whiteline sway bars and end pins and Blitz entry level coilovers

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

I always liked the look of the factory boost gauges so I bought the pillar mount but wasn't prepared to spend 500 bucks for the gauge! So a turbosmart mechanical gauge would suffice.

Posted Image

Posted Image

And finally I swapped out the old gearbox mount for a Nismo one :)
Posted Image

Got plans for a new Exhaust and intercooler kit, ill keep you guys updated :)

Bit of an update got my exhaust all fitted up, Blitz Nur Spec 3 inch cat back, with a Catco high flow cat and Blitz front pipe.

I also got round to replacing my pollen filter which was cringe worthy, looking at buying a Blitz FMIC and a bigger turbo for the start of next year :)

Another update, the front mount arrived so I got to fit it all up, highly recommend the blitz kit if anyone is after a nice simple fit, comes with the battery clamp and terminal extensions! Also got the inspection plate cover for the flywheel which had been bothering me since ive bought the car :S Got a new pod filter and cold air box on the way, then ill probably be looking at fixing the tint up, getting some spec R side skirts and a GT boot lid along with a wideband o2 sensor in preparation for a bigger turbo. :)

Got the Silvia lightning bolt badge for the bonnet, i dont know why Australia ruined the S15 with a horrible name, badge choice and those god damn rear reflectors! The only thing they semi did right was the rear wiper delete. (Although I love the rear wiper look)

Got some replica spec r side skirts and rear pods at paint at the moment also, i will eventually get my hands on some genuine ones if they ever pop up, they just sell so fast if they go up! Cars getting retinted on Saturday also, no tint on the fronts darkest legal on the rears

Not too bad for a copy kit, fitment wasnt up to my standard but itll do for now. May be a little quiet over the next few weeks as the slight weep from the timing case has developed into a minor leak! So the idea along with the reseal and cranks seal is new Timing chain, tensioner and guides, metal head gasket and arp studs, will keep the thread updated.

Got a bit bored this weekend and my friend wanted to try the Regamasters on his s2000, looks mint as! So i tried the 18 inch Enkies on, unfortunately not my taste at all. Not too much of an update added a little more camber on the front steering feels alot more responsive and predictable but definitely need some adjustable camber and toe arms to back the rear camber off (standard eccentric bolts do sfa) and would like to toe out a bit, super keen to take it to the track though! Payed two lots or regos and insurances so no mods for now :( but a boost controller and clutch/flywheel kit is next on the to do list.

Got a bit bored and tipsy last night and decided to strip my boot! For maximum respect when I pop my boot at Harrys Diner on a Thursday night ;)

Gave the car its first proper shakedown drive, haven't really had faith in it to do a semi big drive (OCD life) but finally trusted it enough to do the big Somerset Dam loop, went through Samford to Dayboro, through Mt Mee, then Kilcoy/Woodford to Somerset dam and finally up Glorious and down Nebo. Was a brilliant drive and the car loved the cold air (left at 12 midnight) The thread may be a bit quiet for now as mods will be seldom :) but a boost controller is on the way, Cusco arms will be after.

Just another quick update, not to sure why all the images aren't showing on this thread, bit disappointing. Acquired some Work RS wheel nuts and my Jap spec rear bar finally arrived after a long wait from Japan. Should be ordering full Cusco adjustable arm set in the coming week so stay tuned :)

Got a Turbosmart boost controller and some weathershields, running 10psi low setting and 14psi high, so much nicer to drive now, no where near as doughy. Cars coming together quite nicely! Thinking of getting the spec r GT spoiler, kind of over the lip, if anyone would like to swap im open to offers :)

Bit of an update! Got a present today. All of my adjustable arms :) managed to fit the front castor arms in but due to lack of tools at home the rears will have to wait until next week when i can bring some proper tools home that wont bend on me :blush: then an alignment will be done to push that rear camber back out in preparation for some Nitto NT-01s. Followed by subframe and diff bushes.
