Default My friend's Nissan S15 Silvia

So my friend Danny was in town to get his car tuned over at Balanced Performance, after we picked up his car he stopped by to hang out for a few minutes and I decided to take a few pics of his car. To me, it just looks so right..the color, the wheels, the asthetic mods...it all really adds up to a damn good looking car. The color is 69' Pontiac GTO green and it put down 308rwhp..it would have done more but the injector duty cycle was maxed out at 16psi with the 550cc injectors that are currently in it...so he'll be getting some 750cc injectors and goign back. Also had the car aligned and corner balanced at Balanced as well.

Always liked the Silvia fronts but the S15 rear reminds me too much of a Ponitac Grand Am

Looks like a down payment on a house to me. A nice house.

How much is hella cheap though. That sounds like a very relative figure. Like they might normally go for 70k titled in the US but he got it for half that at 45k. Thats a hella deal, but still a down payment on a house.

No doubt though, I would drive the **** our of that. I have always loved the S15's. Not so much its predecessors.

Thats kinda of insanely cheap. Like stupid cheap. Sexual favors, human trafficking, or drugs must have also been involved.

Car was also a non-turbo and had accident damage to the front end.....so don't think he got some pristine S15 for $5k. He has done a LOT of work to that car.

Needs more blue. Otherwise, it's sexy. I'm more of an S14 kind of guy, but the S15 isn't bad.

Aggressive 240/Silvia thats not really ricey. So they do exist. Cool.

IMHO, take off the hood and do a more stock-looking unit color matched, and ditch the wing. Then again, I am so conservative aethetically that I should probably be working for Toyota. By most standards its probably perfect. **** its less ricey than a stock 370Z.

Awesome car.

I all around love this car! I have always wanted a S15 since I first saw one.

The only thing I'm not sure about is the wing. From a side profile it flows well with the car, but from the back its a little to high and rice for my taste. But thats just being uber picky about it. Overall the car is gorgeous and I would rock it in a heartbeat.

Very nice! I've been helping my buddy with his S14 240 w/SR lately. He got rid of the T25 and went with a big top mount. I'm not sure how big it actually is. I guess it was on a Focus?!?! I'm not a big fan of all the green, but he's all about being different. Here's a few pics. He's put a turbo blanket on since these. Not sure what he's making for power since he's yet to dyno tune it. In the first pic he still had the T25

Green is ugly. Bay is too busy. Different? Have you seen some of the rice cars out there, they all have crazy colors like that. Nice car though besides.
