Recommended Posts

hi guys and girls

 

decided to start building a sil80

 

It all started when i bought a mx5 and decided to turn it into a track car after going to a few track days at winton! A few months later a guy wanted to swap for his sil80 and i said yes since i loved the look of it!

It had a blacktop sr20det in it that was completely stock! The only problem was that it was a auto :(

 

Since im only 17 i couldn't afford to rego it and pay for insurance so i got my father to :)

S14 And s15 hubs are the same

Are u going to use the hole knuckle or just the hubs ?

Because if your using the while knuckle u will need the lower control arm as well

I'm using a bm50 on my car and it works perfectly fine and my brakes are massive

Just ask for a 0.64 rear housing, 52 trim.

 

I did the same thing and it woke the turbo (same turbo) up considerably but I did lose a bit of top end (maybe 10rwk or so). Also cams are a must with this turbo - Tomei 260's would be great but any cams would make it a lot better.

 

With the brakes, your best changing to the same master that the brakes came off as the standard Silvia master was designed to push oil to single pot rears .

Yes, by about 500rpm which made a massive difference on the track. On the street I found the 0.86 fun, it would bag the tyres hard and didnt cause me any issues in response (just made sure I was in the right gear lol) but on the track it did, which is why it was changed.
