85 Nissan silvia 1.8 turbo s12

this is a rear chance to own a true drifter,fantastic engine that pulls like a train.this car is seriously quick because of the light shell.the back has been striped out aswell.

it will keep up with evos and they dont have a clue what this car is.the car comes with k and n induction kit, scorpion dtm exhaust which is in a bit of a state and really a new exhaust woukd look better.just had a service and gaskets changed on maifold and head.gold rocker cover with red turbo pipe and comes with tax and mot.the engine is bullet proof.

there is a couple of problems however.the turbo needs reconditioning or replacing as its smoking, the bodywork needs some attention,nothing too major.the handbrake stickes a little on cold morings but loosens up when driven.after all it is 22 odd years old so has done pritty well in my opinion.i see no reason for this car not to pass mot once the turbo is sorted.this car turns heads all over the place,especially at car shows where people know what it is.the car is similar to the ae86 and can be made to look identical to the car in INITIAL D.

the car can be drive but i would seriously recomend having it towed or trailered away.



any thoughts thanks

Defintely depends on the price, but seems like a reasonable idea. But old cars can be a right pain in the 4rse (i know!)

CA18ET motor, same as the 200's but single cam, 130bhp IIRC, so no evo beater, and no LSD without a lot of faffing round, however, if its the right price, a T25, t28, t3 can be fitted easily instead of the T25 (which needs doing anyways) it could be a fun little car.

Have a listen for bottom end noise if you look at it, as the cranks can suffer the same fate as the DET engine.

£2-300 if theres a decent test on it smile

Good points : RWD.

Bad points : Pretty much everything. My mate had one about 8 years ago, they are awful cars!! It will be smoking for the rest of it's life until you finally scrap it.

You gotta love the way hes used gloss paint on the hot pipe, and even painted the connecting rubber hose, and the rubber breather hose raftl



Anyone who does that to a manifold really doesn know what they are doing....

There are good ones out there, but theres an ongoing discussion about this one on the SXOC, general thoughts - JUNK raftl

How about a Mitsubishi Starion:



Still get okay ones for a few hundred quid. Beasts.

Starion eBay Link (just remove the stripes)

(and the colour)

Unfortunatly, a decent starion will set you back £1500, anything under £1000 will be a rot box!!
