    Morning. Yeah, those links are dead, along with probably a lot of that FAQ stuff as it's either ancient or the embedded files were wiped.

    Hi folks,

    The S15 has no speedo on the gearbox. Instead the ABS computer takes the speed (I presume from the rear sensor) and feeds it to the dashboard.
    Is that link above working? I should look into this as...

    I don't know about elsewhere, but I seem to go through a lot of bushes on all my cars around here, probably thanks to the bumps and potholes.

    We did used to meet once a month at the Wessington,...

    Who's still around the Newcastle area?

    As things have gradually quietened down, just wondering who's still got a 200SX/Silvia etc?

    A few weeks ago I saw a maroon (I think) pre-facelift S13 near International Paint in Gateshead :eek:

    in the S15, there is no 'ignitior chip' as they integrated the transistors into the coil packs. Maybe your car is some late model with S15 coil packs?

    If you have a torque wrench then a set of crow's feet spanner adapters are great for torquing everything up (as sockets don't fit tie-rods). Unless, that is, you've already got a torque-spanner or...
