Hey guys, need some advice from all the sifus's in here. My friend currently wants to sell me his S15 NA (auto) manufactured year 2002 for 90k to me. He has only done minor mods such as changing the whole exhaust system from Extractor to Muffler, Open pod air filter and 17Inch Rays Rims. My questions are :

1. Is 90k worth is for a NA ( auto ) silvia. Does the Auto gearbox give u any problems ?

2. Is it possible throw in a SR20DET Manual Halfcut into the car with minor changes ? i heard my mechanic dronning on and on about drive shaft not ngam., LSD not ngam... alot not ngam.. have to mod alot of stuff.

Thanks guys, appreciate any feedback given. Thanks.

not a sifoo but i dont think it is worth it, a lot of hassles, and things may also not be done the right way during the auto/manual & sr20de/sr20det conversion, s15 halfcuts now are like rm12k? ive got a mech selling one for that price

better u get an s15 manual spec R right from the start; can be had from rm100k onwards

if im not mistaken the s15 NA auto one is a spec S, and i noe the spec R came with extra chassis bracing which u wont get by just transplanting d stuffs from an sr20det s15 halfcut

Nissan Silvia S15 Turbo 2.0 Manual - Cars for sale Kuala Lumpur - Mudah.my

needs wider/crazier offset wheels though hehe

search around this forum, there are some really good ones on sale, with bonus stuffs

Cheers!

yep i second that..skip all the hassle..i've been doing some searching also on some mild modded spec Rs too..

not worth it to buy this kind of car with an auto tranny..does not fit the purpose..unless u're working in KL & drive it everyday..

Thanks guys... been doing some research on the car myself also, yeah, decided its too much of a hassle getting the car converted, have to let it lie in workhop... find parts... get a good mech...endorse engine... fine tune... :slug:

Guess its back to saving more for the Spec-R manual :)

Cheers

90k quite expensive lorr, i got s15 spec-s (na) but auto, i bought less than 80k, but i convert my transmission to manual at a workshop near mydin usj, he offer me around 2.5k complete parts including workmanship, s15 is really cool n sexy car, but even better if turbo n manual, he hee

spec-s you'll get a single port front and rear, non-turbo ecu, na wiring, standard suspension. not to mention you are gettin' the SR20DE without the important T!!! plus you are having hassle to convert from auto to manual, and this will never ever match with factory fitments at all! and for the 10k savings do you think it's worth it?! i'd say rather stick to original spec-R and work from there..
my 2cents opinion...
