Default New UK s12 Owners Please Introduce Yourselves

It has been noticed that there are a lot of UK s12 enthuisiasts that have signed up to www.s12oc.com but have not made an introduction.

S12oc has a newbie forum board to help you introduce yourself and get to know a few other like minded owners. We are a friendly club that enjoys a joke aswell as using the forum to help each other out when it matters and arrange club meets and shows.

If you own an s12 and Live in the United Kingdom we would like to hear from you.Especially if you are interested in attending some of our friendly shows......

Default Its getting older....(1988)

My red Silvia Turbo was bought from a friend (lady) at 33,000 miles fives years ago.Now on 120.000. Works like a dream except for traditional rotting rear door due to spolier. Anybody any ideas before I dare take the step to unbolt and reveal?

Pray? I have yet to dare either.

I'm not quite new.. i've had my s12 for almost two years (and been lurking here & sxoc almost as long). It was previously my mum's car ..and after loving the car for all the years it was hers i nabbed it first chance i had when she bought her rx-8.

Current mods:
Lovely gunmetal paintjob.
Modified airbox.

Coming soon:
T25 turbo - refurbished
Cossie intercooler
Electric fans
New ignition coils (does anyone else do this?)
Custom exhaust (well, it kind of has to be)
Uprated brake pads
Grooved discs
K&N induction kit
KYB shocks all round
Chassis Dynamics lowering springs
Inovit gunmetal 'spirit' 17"x7's. (hopefully)
Walbro fuel pump
Uprated injectors
Dump valve (quiet one?)
Respray.
New wiper blades


I have far too many questions to ask, so im glad you're happy to answer!

Welcome to the site

What are your plans once the rear spoiler is removed? There are holes under here so unless your replacing the spoiler with another then these will need filing.

You can try and get your hands on an se rear spoiler which most people are, or search the scrappys for renault 19 16v , peugeout 405 ,and other rear spoilers as these have been tried and tested and look good.

Post some pictures up if you can mate, would be nice to see the s12

Default I'm a newbie too...

Hi guys, my name's Tim, friends call me Bo, or the boy...
I own a S12 Silvia...
It's my first Nissan...
Err... she's am '85 which I brought a year ago (love the retro rockets) and after blapping it about for a couple of weeks... I blew the turbo, warped a brake disc and the diff felt like it was grinding... real bad...
I've spent the last 12 months collecting parts for her... mission on it's own, never mind the year previous trying to find the car to begin with...
Parts...
Black Diamonds Discs (F R32,& S12 R)
R32 Front Hubs and calipers
Red stuff pads
Steel braided Hoses
S13 LSD
New Rear swaybar bushes
New brake seal kit (both S12 R, and R32 F)
Momo Stearing wheel
Snap Off Boss
Cobra MonacoII Bucket... blah blah blah...
Ohh...
and i'm a Rotary head... so, i'm leaning towards an RX7 lump... but recently a few have recomended a SR20DET lump... but that's alot of cash...
And last but not least there was a guy around South Ockenden way a few years back... a black S12 with 3 spokes... YOU are guilty for my (now 6 odd years of looking for one!) OBSESSION! !! !!!

HAHA i believe you must mean Umpkin. He is on this site. He has a mk1 in black with the se monaco spoiler etc. Nice looking car



You have a nice spec to your car. When did you do the s13 lsd conversion?
Do you have any pictures of the r32 brake setup on your s12.

It sounds like a gd project. PICTURES!!!!!!!!!!

are you interested in coming to any shows this year?
