  1. So... like most builds, this one is taking longer than I'd like and progressing bloody slowly. Biggest problem with that is, too much thinking time. So...here s a list of some of the changes to the plan..... 1. No longer going to run Improved Production - heading to Street Cars instead. 2. SR has been removed, and being replaced with an LS Swap. (L98) Some of the progress includes : 1. Finished off the sound deadener removal 2. Car has been completely stripped of wiring (except rear harness) 3. Interior has been completely stripped including dash etc 4. Seat has been purchased 5. Wheels ar
  2. I spoke to an importer, and he told me they have the side intrusion bars in Japan. It's all good, makes finding replacement ones easier.
  3. All good, got an answer....no significant difference. Carry on.... nothing to see here!
  4. Hi Guys, I've just been informed that the S15 JDM doors have side intrusion bars, so I was wondering if there is any differences between them and the ADM doors? Anyone know? Cheers, Mark.
  5. Update time..... Made some good progress last weekend. I received the last brake lines from HEL performance to connect to the brake callipers to the lines on the car. Got them all fitted, and then filled the system with fluid and bled the brakes up. No leaks, and a strong feeling pedal. Just need some wheels now to take it for a test drive!
  6. It's been a while since I have had a chance to play out in the garage due to a back injury which resulted in an injection to my spine, but today, I finally got back into it. This afternoon I have fitted the GKTech ABS delete kit, very straight forward and quality looks good. I'm running the stock booster with the BM57 master for now while the category figures out what they are doing with the floor mount pedal box rule. If nothing else, it will give me the opportunity to do another track day and see what we can do with mods we have made and the weight that has been stripped from the car so fa
  7. The boost seems pretty low to me, but maybe they kept it there due to the AFM? I'm not up to speed with AFM's on SR's, as I've never run one, so no idea what the limit is for them. My S15 still has the stock turbo on it, and makes and holds 15psi no problem at all. I have a Power FC though, so no AFM. I haven't had my car on the dyno yet, and since I bought it with the current set-up I can only go on what the previous owner claimed. He said it made just under 300rwhp, which I can't see being right. If I was a betting man, I would think it is more like around 220-250rwhp. Once I get it to And
  8. I went to Nissan to get a price on some ball joints, as expected, they will only sell the entire lower control arm with Ball joint already fitted for the bargain price of $545 each! The tie rod ends were nearly as bad - $220 each - bloody ridiculous. I have been to Repco, and they can only supply the entire Ball joint, but not the rubber boot on it's own - didn't bother getting a price. I called Wilkinson Suspension in Bayswater, and they have quoted me $115 to supply & fit new ball joints to the existing arms, as long as I remove the arms and take them in - no problem - that's what I
  9. Hey guys, The rubber boots on my ball joints and tie rod ends are all cracked. I need to either replace the boot or the entire part. Can you buy just the rubber boots?
  10. ..... and the Wheels fit too! http://www.performanceforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=97496&d=1484912489 http://www.performanceforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=97497&d=1484912493

  12. Good News...... the Brembo's are bolted up and fit like a glove! In the end this is what we did..... Modified EVO 9 Brembos Modified STi Rotor Custom Adaptors to mount calipers All that effort to fit the Enkei RPF1's in 17x9....... they better bloody fit!
  13. Sure is. They have been a pain in the arse to get right so that we can fit the 17" Enkei RPF1's over them, but I think we are pretty close now.
