    Don't know, but I can't find a mention on the old Jap Nissan Silvia pages.

    There's a very small possibility that its been removed due to the tubular manifold.

    I notice there's no boost gauge sensor either...

    One annoying thing with our ABS systems is if you pull the fuse it stops the speedo working. Not really relevant but it does bug me.

    Could have just been removed, its is a hefty bugger.
    Maybe a 'stage 1 weight reduction' has taken place on the car

    im with Brad on this one! It looks like a worked s15, and nearly everyone removes the ABS unit as a weight reduction and also as a power gain.. The ABS unit uses abt 4-6 kilowatts from the engine.. My mechanic told me this info n said they do it for the drag strip...

    hope it helps..

    4~6kw, so you r saying that abs is always working?


    they do it for the drag strip is becuase they dont need ABS on their car they remove the seats becuase they arent taking any passenger

    If you removed the ABS unit from an S15 in Europe, you'd be dead in no time. Our roads get wetter and greasier than yours...
