Hello. Yes as a surprise to some of you I do own a silvia and when I'm not on this forum fighting with Vemma selling playboys, I'm building/fixing this 1990 s13 Silvia.
When I first bought this car I was a squid teen who just fell in love with the s chassis after realizing that a CE Lancer wasn't the coolest thing ever. I picked it up 20 mins after the ad was posted on gumtree with a big ol beautiful ca18de Auto. The shell was very clean and well looked after and has had a respray in its life.
Here's a photo when I first got it:
Now when I bought it I didnt have my licence yet and thought I would be fully sik and make it faster and manual. So I went about it. I picked up a cheap s13 unlic with the dirty ca which was manual and had a lovely snail on the side.
Over the past few months or so I have been tweaking it to make it more reliable and less cop bait.
I picked up a ca18 front bumper and Lip for a lovely price and here's how it sits:
Got the nismo sideskirts, front bar painted and got the boot holes filled up.
For the moment I took the exhaust manifold off to go about fixing its horrendus exhaust leaks and my overboost issue.
2 birds with one stone.
Snapped in middle causing gate to stay slightly open.
Painted rocker covers.
Upgrade that t25 which looked horrendous on the top mount mani to a t28
s14 (I think) Brakes - excuse blurry pic
Bought some splitfires, mock fittted it up. need to clock compressor housing and cut some piping.
Planned is some nice rims and coilovers and getting a custom intake manifold made up by a mate to help clean up the engine bay
