    S15 parts that fit S14s

    I thought this might start some interest in things that would fit the S14 from off the S15.

    My first blunder so far was the genuine Nissan 'A' pillar gauge pod, shipped all the way from Auss......

    It don't fit. thought I could mod it slightly but no......

    If someone ever gets a rhd S15, I have a pod for one.

    Or its the 1st part to me collecting enough bits to build one.

    They're always posting front fenders and bonnets on ebay for people doing a front end conversions.

    TBO and I'm probably going to get laughed at for saying this but I think the s15 looks a bit pants - there I said it

    Actually so do I................

    Doesn't look halve as menacing as the S14a, a little TOO smooth for my liking.

    Believe S15 diff is supposed to be a good interchangable part (for S13 or S14):

    Pretty much all the mechanical parts are interchangable, also the majority of the suspension components and the front seats...

    The standard wing mounted intercooler is also twice as thick as the S14 one

    Anyone know where I can get a pair of S15 half shafts - the two bits that go into the diff and bolt up to the driveshafts?

    S15 fenders do not fit the 14 you need custom ones.

    I think some of the S15's came with 6 speed boxes, do these bolt on?

    Each to their own I suppose, some people actually like Vectras and spend lots of money buying one, silly people.

    Just proves we all got different tastes, just most of us on here got better taste than your average motorist

    speaking of conversions, i remember seeing an S15 front on an S13 rear end..

    now i honestly thought that looked absolutely wicked.. once lowered and all..

    I seem to recall reading that the 6 speed 'box will bolt straight on, that would be nice. Also a lot of Aussie (i think) racers prefer the 5 speed S14 box because they are stronger. Summit to do with the actual gears being smaller in the 6 speed box to fit. Aren't S15 turbo's better as well, roller bearings?

    read a review somewhere that mentioned the 6 speed box being far louder than the 5 speed too..
