hi all, this is my sil80. bought it in August 2007 and what started as a neat 180 with a rb25 has turned into a bottomless money pit it has gone through a lot of changes over the past few years from a neat daily to "pig" daily to hard parker to very tidy daily to a flaming BBQ back to hard parker. due to my job i haven't had much time or motivation to enjoy it or fix it. the aim now is to get it all running properly take it to track days, powercruise and the odd weekend cruise. when i bought it, it had rb25, 3inch exhaust, rsr springs & jap shocks, gtr front brakes, bov, gay offset 17's and completely stock interior-it still had a factory cassette & cd player. this is how i bought it Aug '07 in late '08 fitted up a gt3076r, link g4 ecu, fmic, greddy plenum and went 5 stud. made 230kw and was petty happy how it went. also went sil80 at the same time. how it was before respray dec '09 December 09 i decided to do a quisck respray and freshen up the suspension. well that got a bit out of hand and i ended up seam welding the engine bay & inside, full colour change, replaced most suspension componets & bushes and given the car in general a freshen up(new body rubbers, seals) august '10 2012 bought a built long motor from another forum member, went 6boost high mount and bigger rear housing. how it now sits in December 2015 let us know what ya think engine: rb25 s2 mahle pistons, spool rods balanced & grub screwed crank grout filled nitto oil pump ross metal jacket balancer n1 water pump oil restricters head to sump oil drain greddy plenum with q45 TB- ceramic coated silver gt3076r ex/w .82- ceramic coated silver and black 6boost highmount manifold- ceramic coated black Turbosmart 60mm wastegate tomei poncams tomei valve springs heavily ported head rb26 engine covers- powder coated silica breath metallic mines cam cover baffles link G4 ecu xspurt 1000cc top feeds gtr fuel rail nismo fuel reg Walbro 460L e85 pump splitfire coil packs 3inch stainless exhaust 40mm radiator air/water seperator setrab oil cooler with themostat blitz fmic lots of braided hose driveline: rb25 g/box r33 master cyclinder exedy ceramic button clutch 1 piece 3inch tailshaft r33 gtr diff r33 gtr axels HEL braided clutch line suspension & brakes: MCA X-R coilovers tune agent castor arms kazama rear camber & toe arms R33 GTR Brembo brakes with modified abs bm57 dba400 front rotors, project mu pads & rear rotors Whiteline adjustable front & rear sway bars nolathane cradle bush's all bushes replaced with urethane S15 front lca and knuckles Slip on lock washers wheels: 18x8 +18 work meister s1 18x9 +22 work meister s1 17x9 +30 R33 GTR exterior: silvia front type x tail lights aero front bar and skirts gtr grill bomex bonneville rear lip hand flared guards clear indicators electric bomex/east bear mirrors respray in custom grey interior: R33 gtr seats nismo gear knob defi gauges boost, water & oil temp, oil pres performance through out the years: 156kw@14psi (sep '07) 230kw@14psi (sept 08) 13.2@107mph (nov 08) 301kw@15psi (Nov '13) 320kw@20psi (jun '14) 310kw pump98 @20psi (dec '15) 365kw e85 flex @24psi (dec '15) parts waiting to be fitted: kazama castor & traction arms, hks BOV.
