Hi, my name is Matt and this is my S15.
I've owned the car now around 7 months, and in that time there has been a few changes that I would like to show you.
The previous owner has already spent a lot of time and effort on the Silvia with an impressive spec I can build onto.

These are the photos of when I collected it.
The first purchase was a set of new wheels, 18x9.5 et12 Silver TE37 with AD08R tyres.

I got a great deal on the TE37, when they need new tyres I'll go wider.
The avant daily comes in useful.
The RPF1's went into storage and the TE's were fitted.
It was now time for it's fifth UK MOT since it was imported in 2012, it passed with no advisories ready for another year on the road.
I also ordered a works bell hub for added security.

So the Works Bell arrived, along with a new Nardi wheel and boss.
The gearbox oil was due to be changed so this time I went with Red Line LightWeight ShockProof 75w-90 after reading a few good reviews.
Greg @ Protuner said that the Hyper Medalion was quite restrictive so I picked up a damaged Tomei Expreme cheap. I'll get the weld repaired by a friend that can weld titanium.

Hey beautiful car! Im trying to get my hands on a s15 myself, question regarding the steering wheel, can you reach the headlight and blinker and windshield wiper controls with ease with that steering wheel? I believe the deep dish one gave me a hard time reaching for the blinkers
Also hows the fluid feel in the tranny??

Ive been running the same tranny fluid in my sr20 s13 for 3 or 4 years now, split track and street use. It's great stuff, loved how it made the shifts feel when I first started using it, still love it and use it now
Awesome s15! It looks so 'new'!

A small coolant leak got traced back to the water pump, that was due to be changed anyway. Picked up a new genuine pump and coolant, tube of hondabond, and a set of new auxiliary belts.
Nice and easy to get to with the radiator and viscous fan removed.
Awkward to get the radiator and shroud back in but no more coolant leak, I also got the Tomei back from a friend after he repaired a cracked weld. The noise is great and hopefully flows better than the Tanabe.

Finally the stock T28 gave up, no damage to the engine. It had been maxed out for a couple years and due an upgrade.
I forgot to take a photo of all the white smoke.
Towed home and started to strip it down. Still undecided what to do next.
More updates in the new year, Happy New Year guys!

Ordered a roll of the DEI titanium wrap for the Tomei manifold and to try and reduce the heat near the ABS pump.
Used locking wire to tie it in place, looks better than the metal cable ties I think.
Tomei, Tomei, Tomei.
I had enough wrap left for the turbo elbow too.
Waiting for a few more things to arrive.

Z32 air flow meter, Tomei pigtail, Tomei rocker arm stoppers, Apexi filter and Nismo 740cc injectors arrived.
Ready to go back together, I'll grab some pictures when I install it.

Over time I gathered everything I needed and could begin building it back up.
I took off the DIF oil and coolant lines that were already on the car and run the ones included in the Tomei kit.
Installed the 740 injectors, turned them down on the PowerFC and changed the settings for the AFM and it fired up. No leaks, ready to be tuned.
