Hi all just got an mk1 1.8 eunos from a family member for the winter as my s15 is just sketchy as hell in the winter weather.

Heres my 15
Currently running just under 350bhp and is my daily during the summer





This is the mx5 that i picked up the other day



Have already dropped it on coilies ;-)



Anyway hi and im sure il be annoying the hell out of everyone asking the same old mech questions but least i know what a lsd does so your safe from that one.

Yeah it is. I got it off richie in may and have done a few bits here and there and love it to bits. The only reason im not driving it over winter is because my fiancee insists that its to dangerous where we live so her idea was to get another rwd soft top ???????

thats a lovely looking silvia. love the plate too. is it mechanically standard? a good friend of mine has just bought a forged engine and shizzle for his s15... Personally i thought it had enough power anyway haha!

the mx5s are real easy to slip out. back end comes out nice and easy

That T28R must be fully maxed out at just under 350 bhp? On standard injectors too? I would have thought you'd need a 2871 turbo to achieve that kind of power.

cool looking car though, I've seen the s15 in the flesh.
