The Silvia S14 Build

Hey, my names Thomas. I'm Saskatchewan Canada and this is my silvia build.

This is how I bought the car back in late 2014









The car was pretty original besides ugly bbs wheels, blitz bov, blitz intake and splitfire ignition packs.

Received my powered by max coilovers and tie rods. Out with the old Tein HA





Upgraded the stock intercooler to a cx racing kit with hks flange





Installation was pretty straight forward

Just to be safe, i purchased an aem wideband, oil pressure and boost gauge. Was a good thing as my fuel pump was on its way out, causing low air fuel ratios

Right away I ordered a new walbro 255, sard fuel pressure regulator and a decided to also get an hks adjustable wastegate actuator.







Around the same time, I found a good deal on a set of work xd9. Specs are 18x10 et 18 all around.


Test fit them, and found out that they were super close to my front coilover




Instead of bolt on spacers, I decided to go with arp extended studs and use a 10mm slip on spacer




After working on the car a bit, a noticed the tension rods were oozing grease, so of course I upgraded to powered by max rods. Along with my order, I also purchased their oil filter relocate kit.





Also purchased a powered by max oil filter relocate

While having the car under the knife, I figured it would be in my best interest to tuck the wiring harness.



The car was out of commission for quite some time but it was worth it







Shortly after having the car back on the road, I found a good deal on some recaro confetti seats









Winter than came and the car was put into storage for about 6 months

Over winter I acquired more parts

personal grinta blue suede wheel with burnt titanium hardware




Nrg Slim hum and quick release



ARC Titan Shift knob for all those jdm points






By this time, winter was over and I was able to take it out of storage





I only drove the car for a couple weeks, and it was back under the knife

Winter parts stock

Powered by max toe arms, rucas, traction rods and solid subframe bushings


Also ordered GKTECH solid diff bushings and the CTSV calipers for my big brake kit





Collection of parts I still needed to install or am stock piling



Once I had eveything, the car went up on jack stands

first off was the the apexi dual n1 exhaust



and than the subframe






Bought some new air tools as they were on sale for a great price



Cleaned up the underside and coated in rock guard. Still not completely done




Removing the hub from the knuckle was a huge pain but needed to be done. Hub was than brushed down and painted with tremclaud



Same was done to the axles



I sent the subframe away to get powdercoated and it turned out perfect




I am still waiting on the powered by max drop knuckles and control arms.

The build is currently up to date

I've noticed quite a few nice imports coming from Saskatchewan, as of late. I like what you've done so far.

This post has nothing to do with my silvia build but I thought i'd share it anyways.
I purchased a perfect condition 2012 Mitsubishi Evo gsr with only 12k miles on it.
This car will not be modified beyond a new wheel setup as its my new daily

Hey, when you installed the nrg hub, did you lose any functionality? like turn signal cancel, air bag light always on, or horn?

Really interested in your seat set up. It would be perfect for my car. What model are the seats? What kind of sliders did you use? How do they fit in the car? What is the seating position like compared to stock?

Recaro Srd i believe and they are on recaro rails for an s14. Fit well and are lower than stock.


Ripped into the diff tonight. Not sure how well shimming a vlsd is going to work but so im going to test it out. I'm putting in 2 0.8"" shims in hopes it will act as a 2-way.




Tonight progress is at a stand still as my impact wont bust these bolts free. Going to use a larger one tomorrow



Cleaned up the diff and shafts with a wire wheel then laid a coat of tremclaud to freshen them up

Also took a couple pictures of the daily. Can't believe how ridiculously clean this car is for being a 2012

The shims in the vlsd seem to work pretty good.

New wheels for the new year.
