I have a question.

I have recently became the owner of a tidy little S15 and I was wondering if I were to (over time) build it up to the Specs of the TS15, Could I use the TS 15 instead of the standard S15 But only when I get it up to the right spec ?

Im wanting to do a Little story on it like Mr. Impulse is doing.

Hmm, I'm not sure but I would say that it was possible.
Say you build it to spec and buy the bodykit etc, I can't see why not.

Ok so I have taken all the parts that I have left of the Volvo 850R that I just sold and put them on the S15 The new P.I is 662

It has

Power:611hp
Torque:428 LB-FT
Weight:2329
Front:51%
Displ:2.4L

The TS S15 With some race parts as I didn't have sport so I had to upgrade some parts.
P.I: 683
Power:589hp
Torque:402 LB-FT
Weight:2,552 LBS
Front:51%
Displ:2.4 L

So does this work ?

All the parts on the TS S15 are either sport or they are not there becuase they are already Race I didn't have most of the sport parts but had race versions of the same so I used them instead then upgraded the TS S15 to comply with the specs.

Im about to make a Specification sheet up might take me a while haha.

Try to get the HP and weight even closer.
A little bit could differ because of the way the piping is done and the weight could differ because of the bodykit.
Matching the engine is top priority.

How much would changing the entire bodykit and ripping the interior apart?
$10,000 to $20,000? Or is that a bit too much? I haven't done this to a real car before so I wouldn't know the exact pricing. Maybe you can search for it on the web?

The HP and Weight are a bit more differant because I went straight to upgrading the engine parts since the TS S15 Has a modified SR20 From the S15 what I did was dump out the TS S15 Motor for my more built up SR20 Motor from the S15.

Wouldn't the interior be the same as race weight reduction ?

For the kit I was gonna look for real life prices and then add on top of that our project, if you get what im trying to say Wink

Ah, nice! Curious to see how it will look!

About the interior being the same as Race weight reduction:
Doesn't the TS S15 have a completely race spec interior?
That's not the same as what the Race weight reduction does.
I don't really mind but I like realism so I just try to keep it as realistic as possible for you.

But then again, stripping out parts isn't that costly.

Google is your friend ;]
But the Skylines use RB20DETT's and the S15 uses the SR20DET.

S/13/14/15's Use Nissan SR20 motors while the R33 Uses a Nissan RB26 in the game so unfortunatly you don't hav a spare engine

Yes. most upgrade parts transfer. Then since you dont need the motor swap you can sell it.

What's with tyre/style/width - flat rate 1500

Does that mean I can go from 205 16" stock to 225 18" Advans for 1500? or would that be 4500?

I think it could be worded better. This is how I interpret it..


$1500 for rims. Whatever diameter you buy (like 18") is the diameter that they will be. So if you want to sell them, or use them on another car, they are 18"


Then tires, whatever ones you buy, its a one time price for compound, diameter, and width. Just like the rims, these retain their diameter and width. I would not bother worrying about the aspect ratio.

So for sport tires AND new rims, its like $3k for the whole package.

Used cars. I know this has already been asked before but I am going to ask it again.

Can we come up with some sort of agreement on a % for which we can jsut get rid of them if they are not moving on the used market? Or call it "trading them in" when purchasing a new car.

Like, you only get 20% or 25% of the original purchase price? I guess I could put it on the used market around there too and it would probably sell.

I think 25% off of the purchase price for the cars is a good deal. This means 25% off of the original price of the cars not including aftermarket parts because the car is just being sold for scrap. So for example..

A 240sx is lets say $7,000, I would multiply that by .25 which would equal $1,750.
