Swap for tidy, registered s14 or s15... cash adjustment either way


I'm not really set on a price at the moment, but I’m valuing it at what a low km s15 with a built engine, r33 box, and quality JDM parts would be worth, minus a liberal estimate of $5000 to get it to a clean registered state.

I bought this a few months ago with intentions of using it as a dedicated track car. I’m now thinking i’d prefer something tidy & registered, & don’t know if I can be bothered getting this one to that state.


I bought it with semi-repaired damage. It had hit a tyre wall on the LH side. Since purchasing it, these are the issues i've discovered:


Bent rear subframe. Trutrack have since installed a new subframe, toe, camber & caster rods, set heights & aligned. It handles, steers & stops very well.


The radiator support uprights are a bit bent (possibly reshaped to fit FMIC). I had to redrill one to get the headlight to sit straight. There was also a small crack in the the top section of the support, which I patched up with JB weld.


The LHR fender is still a bit out of shape (10mm too narrow at the bottom corner). The bumper, rear fenders and LH door need to be painted, I’ve installed overfenders as a cosmetic patch up (no cut guards; they're fairly flared already). The fenders don't appear to be full of bog.


The LH door needs a little more body work (I have a spare door in red).


The LHF guard has been replaced (dummy fitted in pics)


The chassis rails are straight, but are a bit squashed in places (most likely from a forklift or incorrect jacking). The RW inspector reckons there are a few spots where the squashed rail has peeled away from the floor & would need to be spot/stich welded for a RWC. Realistically I think they're probably no worse than most imports.


The clutch will slip if you try to spin into 3rd (seems to hold in all other circumstances).


The gearbox will crunch in to 5th.


The diff whines (work well though).


A recent RW inspection identified the following:

Missing 4 wheel nuts - Replace

LH brake light - Replace (DONE)

Number plate light loose- Affix to new bumper

Handbrake - Adjust

Confirm numbers - PPSR report (DONE)

Windscreen washers - Fix/replace

Tail light tint - Replace (DONE)

Rear bumper - Replace (DONE)

Boot leak - Seal around spoiler

Free up drivers seat belt - Clean

Floor rail damage - Weld sections where it’s peeled away from floor. Pull-out/tidy squashed sections

Brake lines - Secure front brake lines

Oil weeps - Clean engine and gearbox

Diff noise - Service or replace

Exhaust too loud - Fit silencer or replace

Suspension - Fit standard suspension


I want to be as open as I can about the car. I reckon it's a pretty solid car. It drives very well... almost faultlessly. It has some issues, but at least they've been identified. With a bit of attention spent on cosmetics, this would be a really good car.
