NISSAN S15 STREET/TRACK SPECIAL - HEAD BUILT BY NAPREC

Recommended Posts

I picked up the S15 back in 2012 from a 50 yr old lady owner who had owned the car since brand new.

 

The subframe came out in 2015...adding in Yanack solid diff bushes & solid rear knuckle bushes, Nismo reinforced subframe bushes & LCA's to compliment the HKS/Ikeya Formula suspension setup (which was installed near the start of the build). The standard clutch let go fairly early on and it was replaced with an ORC 559 twin plate solid centre clutch.

The rear guards were rolled to accept a set of VOLK TE37SL's 17x9 +22. With the AD08R's these mods transformed the look & handling of the car. The bootlid is a carbon piece from Sunline Racing.

I'd accumulated a heap of parts from Japan and after taking the car off the road in Nov 2015 I got to work installing all the bits & pieces. The pictures below show the stage I reached before me & an engine builder mate decided to take off the head off & send it to NAPREC in Japan for a full big valve build. More to come later

Looks mint, I like it. If you haven't already, you should consider an additional vertical support for the oil filter relocation block. That small 90 degree bracket won't be adequate once the filter is in and full of oil, then it will have to contend with suspension movement. You could fab a dog-leg bracket that mounts to the lower tab on the radiator support fairly easily.

Pmod - will do mate, good idea.

 

For those who are interested here a couple of photos of the head as it currently sits.

 

It's race ported with JUN valve guides, Tomei O/S valves (lapped), enlarged seat rings & a full circle CNC combustion chamber.
