Rebuilding a Nissan Silvia S12

What with work comitments and a house move etc... it's taken twelve months to get Silvia to the current stage.
While the engine has had some work done on it, there is still a lot to be done. The original T2 turbo is being replaced with a T25. Also because the S12's were never built with an intercooler a front mounted one from a BMW is going to be fitted.

trial fitting
The intercooler will sit slightly further back when fitted.



Allthough the engine has had loads of work done on it, the engine bay needs a lot of cleaning and dressing up. Why? Why not.......
Standard engine


How it should look
If I could get it to look half as good as this I'd be well happy



17" instead of 15"
A decent set of 17" rims with 215x40 Avon tyres, bought again from eBay


If I'm going to be a 44 year old poser I'd thought I'd do it in style with a set of purple neons.........
Anyone for a sun tan
