    So, I just shot this Silvia Spec-R 6 Gear manual from japan, it costs me ~14,500€ to get it to the UK including all taxes, fees and shipping costs.
    Yet I am not sure, the sr20det will be enough for fun, what do you say?
    It has a sr20det with 300hp in it, but to get more hp out of it will be very expensive, as I read in the forums.
    How much would it be (and would it be enough) to get it safe to 400-450hp ?
    Here are pics of the Silvia though!

    hey mate its looks clean
    probably you need ecu for this power and the gearbox is the limit 400-450ps
    thats all

    by the way 300ps is more than enough for play arround in my opinion

    You've not even driven it yet and you're now asking people whether it has enough power?

    Drive it, have fun and if you find you're bored of the power then consider upgrading.

    Although I like it, it looks more like a show car than a drift slag, so you need to decide what your intentions are, drive it hard and THEN decide what you want to do.

    Personally I don't think you even own this car?

    Seeing as Japwest Mods have put it up for sale 3 hours ago and your telling us you brought it on Monday something doesn't quite add up?
