Froggz S15 Jap Import.

Recommended Posts

Here Is my 1999 Japanese import S15 Silvia.

I finally got my dream car a few weeks ago, after going from an s13, through a couple commys and a FG Falcon.

Nothing beats the feel of my S15.

 

Nothing major done but going to add to it when I have funds.

Has HKS BoV

Turbosmart boost Tee (12~psi)

K&N pod filter

3" xforce exhaust with Varex rear muffler

Stock side mount intercooler

Small sound system

Hicas (Unfortunately)

18x8.5 in the front with 18x9.5 in the rear Lensos.

Hid

Turbo Timer

Thanks guys, I would much prefer stock kit, but would prefer spend money elsewhere at the moment

Nothing real special happening in the engine bay, thinking of putting a stock airbox in.

I want to chuck her on some coilovers, not going to run heaps low but low enough, put a front mount on, possibly new exhaust manifold, going to get a 3" dump pipe soon and bigger fuel pump.

And If I can find a stock kit cheap enough I'll whack that on.

 

 

Gave her a quick wash today. Terrible phone pics but oh well.

One of the coolant pipes that goes to my turbo is leaking :/

so have to find a new pipe might get a braided line.

 

Found my exhaust leak as well, two nuts have rattled off wear the dump pipe connects to the turbo.

and its not the easy pipe to get to :'( (little one on the side you can see the copper washer)

I'm pretty sure that's your oil return line, I didn't know you could get them as a braided line? I don't like those hose clamps that are on them, I find them annoying and hard to use.

Have fun replacing those dump pipe bolts lol.

i thought that at first too, think he might mean the coolant line is leaking and there is the evidence, hopefully lol

My bad the coolant line that is on the side of the turbo and runs behind the exhaust manifold is leaking, I ordered some braided lines, but got a message saying the wont be here till mid april.. oh well.

Well Replaced all the turbo lines (except for the oil return) with braided lines and replaced my turbo and exhaust manifold gaskets and running like new, No more exhaust leak and loving having all my power back. The gasket that went between turbo and the manifold was blown on one side. Will post photos soon.

Looking at getting a front mount for her, anyone recommend good value for money?

Opinions on weather I should keep the spoiler or shave it?

You'd be better off trying to find another white boot lid without one and just swap it over, then at least you can change it back later

Wow you have a S15 equipped with HICAS?

 

Pretty rare.

Good point about finding another boot lid, I love the look of them with the wing and without, so makes it a hard choice.

The camera is hanging off the interior light I'll take photo tomorrow.

 

I am planning on getting rid of the hicas at some stage apparently makes a fair bit of difference.

I also can't wait to get the standard body kit.

I'd get rid of the wing. But that me I don't like shopping trolleys lol. That kit might look alright with just low and no wing

you are so lucky to have good roads, every nice scenic drive around Vic coast is rubbish bumpy and horrid, and instead of fixing it they lower the speed limit.
