    Sx2002

    Hooray, worked at last...anyway, here is my S15. Australian delivered Spec S. I bought it new in August 2002 as a retirement present to myself...apart from minor exhaust and induction mods it's stock...goes quick enough for me as it is...still love driving it after all these years and just clocked up 50,000ks (30,000 miles) The car is in as new condition and has been garaged all its life.

    looks lovely.

    however, the engine bay pic isn't from a Spec S, thats a Spec R...

    No, it's definitely a Spec S...I put the strut brace in but apart from that and the pod, it's an "S"...
    I should know, I bought the car new...LOL
    The Spec R had a side skirts, etc, here in Oz...
    Also, every model sold here was turbocharged.

    Well done! Was worth the effort! That's by far the cleanest s15 I've ever seen! Looks just like she did the day she rolled out the factory. Lovely car

    Thanks JDM, it helps when you own from new (always garaged) and I've always been a car nut...growing up my Dad was the local neighbourhood mechanic and I was always out in the shed doing valve grinds and other bits and pieces...
    Cheers,
    Ron.

    Hi Ron
    Are you sure your car isn't a Spec R? I can see the intercooler pipework and even your paperwork says SR20DET (t = turbo), it also has the induction going to the cold side of the turbo etc.

    Also if you have a strut bar in the boot then it's a Spec R, it might have had a few things removed to disguise it in order to pay less taxes during registration

    Thanks
    Joe

    Nissan Silvia - Wikipedia

    read the part on S15's, he isnt lying about all ADM models being DET! turns out S and R were trim levels. the engine is detuned from the Jap model spec R but the DE was never sold in Australia or New Zealand.

    great bit of knowledge there!
