“To make the most of the power band the turbos will provide with 2.4-bar (35-psi) of boost dialed up, Autech has equipped the SR20DET block with an SR20VE head (with variable valve lift and timing) from a P12 Primera.”
Met Aidan, an old friend, at the meet, with his Autech S15 that I haven’t seen in a while.
I’ve known Aidan for years and, look- I probably shouldn’t say but, I’d like to think I played some small role in him getting into late-model Jap cars all those years ago, hanging out at my parent’s arts and craft store in Chapel Street, Prahran.
His car is coming along awesome, making significant progress in becoming a hardcore track weapon. He’s got the aero, brakes, featherweight RE30’s and sticky tyres, disconnected (read: broken) ABS, and he’s just taken the rear seats out. Also has got a CAMS certified cage getting fabricated in the near future. The car is making serious times-especially for a naturally aspirated car- around Winton, keeping pace with the Nakama boys and some infamous names amongst the Australian circuit scene.
Hope to organise a shoot with Aidan some time soon!
“Van took his Autech S15 back to it’s roots with the intention of applying the fundamentals of a track bred car integrated into a street driven coupe. The aggressive fitment and unique signatures make this iconic Silvia visible from a mile away.”
