• King Spring super low springs

• Unknown shocks, but they were brand new as of November 2007 (done by previous owner)

• Dual rear sway bars

• All 4 discs machined and pads replaced with Bendix Ultimate pads (January 2009)


• RB30E gearbox (rebuilt/strengthened sometime in 2007 by previous owner)

• Clutch was brand new as of November 2007 (again, done by previous owner). Was checked when the RB25 conversion was done by myself and the clutch still had a LOT of meat left on it so it was left on the car

• Open centre diff. Had a Silo LSD that shat itself so it was locked, but the locker was just plain shit for daily driving so was replaced with an open diff. Couldn't find an LSD diff at the time. Would be very easy to just throw an LSD centre into the diff.


• Nismo LM-GT2 17" 3 piece rims, 17x7.5" (f) and 17x8" ®

• The tyres on the car at the moment are pretty well shagged, so the car will be fitted with 4 BRAND NEW tyres before the sale goes through. I have 4 tyres ready to be put on.

Accident History: Very minor bingle on the front of the car when the previous owner had it, all it did was crack the grille and dent the bonnet which is what prompted him to do the S3 conversion. When the car was in my possession, somebody tapped the back of the car when I was waiting to go through a roundabout. Very minor tap but it dented the bumper slightly. Bumper replaced and rear end resprayed under insurance.

Asking Price: $6,500

Location: Carlingford, Sydney NSW

Other Comments: I bought the car in January 2008 for $5000. I have since then done a heap of work to it including the RB25DE engine conversion and the car owes me easily over 10 grand. The engine conversion wiring was all done professionally by MRC Performance in Sydney. The only things wrong with car is that sometimes the central locking (aftermarket) works and sometimes it doesn't. The doors can still be unlocked/locked properly though, it's probably just a loose earth somewhere, I haven't really bothered to look. Also, the indicators do not turn themselves off once you turn the steering wheel because of the boss kit. The boss kit is a track/racing kit so it does not have an indicator return on it, but it took me all of 2 days to get used to flicking it off manually - it's now just a habit. The only other thing that I can think of is that the right taillight has got a crack in it because some dick threw a coke can at my car as he drove past - luckily it only hit the taillight and not any panels!!

Enough talking.. some pics:
