Hello Everyone.
My name is Benjamin AKA Phonexius, I am 22 years old and I was born and raised in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
For the past 4 years I was active in the Bosnian car scene, but I just moved to my dream land Japan, all thanks to my former employer Nebojsa AKA Doge. My green card arrived yestrday and I boarded the first plane to Japan.

I will be placed in Takasaki, Gunma perfecture.
While I was waiting for my green card I was looking on the web and found a really small house whit a garage that can fit two cars, it wasn't expencive since its away from the center of the city, but its ok for me, also I packed up my HCR32 on a ship to Japan and it should arrive on the 31st August.
As for my first car in Japan, well its quite a nice one.
Its a 2001 Nissan Silvia S15 previosly owned by Doge.

The car is totaly stock, originaly did only 170.000km. The car costed me V$5000.
It came pretty cheap but there is a reason why, Doge took out the engine and the rims that were on the car.

so now I am left whit a S15 rolling chassis but its ok for me since I got the money and will start my hunt for a SR20DE/T, as for the rims Doge was kind and gave me a set of 16" steelies xD

Well I took the hook that was on the back (it irritated me xD ) and gave it back to Doge.

So my Japan Journy started, lets see how it will end.

So first day of work done. I am astonished to see the hospitality here, man I love Japan. These guys have a habbit to go for a non alcohol drink afther work, and afther we finished they invited me too.
We went to their favourite bar whit the car from Wataru Shiratori, he owes a 1999 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V.


On the outside it looks pretty factory spec cause it is, meanwhile on the inside the engine has bean tunned to a stagoring 550HP, full suspenssion from a Lan-Evo X,HKS Stainless steel exhaust sistem whit a high pitch sound muffler.

Since I was busy on the work I got exhaust and don't have time to go look for the engine, I hope that Garage Nine will be able to help me since my only days off are Saturday and Sunday and every second Friday,so not enough time to go hunting.
Here is one more photo of the astonishing Lan-Evo V

Well the hearth for my S15 has bean found. I got a message from @FamouseMan from Garage Nine that they have a 6 Speed SR20DET and that the price tag for it is V$2,500.So I emediatly called my boss (the owner of the body shop in which I work) to borrow me the car from the shop and the flat bad too, meanwhile answered to FM to save me that engine I am comming right away. Now I picked up my bosses Nissan Stagea and the Flat bad, put the S15 on it and on my way to Osaka,a 6h trip awaits me, but since Garage 9 works from 9:00-21:00 I asked my boss for a day off cause I will need to make brakes on the trip so that I arrive at the shop afther the opening.

When you put the SR20 in, change the rims ASAP!!! I can't look at such a nice car with steelies on it. :P And it's cool if you keep it original, not many Silvias remain stock these days.

Hey bro how is life going... I deffinetly will keep it stock since Doge kept it stock, it would be a shame to ruin such a sweet car...And about the rims I am mad at Doge for removing them, even he doesn't know what he did whit them so I will check for a rim change on Saturday probably or maybe even tomorrow while they install the engine I could check the internet for some sweet rims :D

^Ok mate no worrys....

So I have bean to Garage Nine and they did a freaking awesome job whit the engine.
Afther I wrote them what I need @FamouseMan contacted me and said that they had a 6 Speed SR20DET Black Top that was pulled out a S15, not long ago, and that the price was V$2500, I couldn't reject that offer.

So I packed my car on a flatbad that I borrowed from my boss and his car xD, and gone to Osaka. I slept in my car untill FamouseMan came to work and woke me up, the installation went pretty fast, we had all done till 11am and he went to test the engine a bit.




I also begged him to spray my spoiler and rear bumper to the same color as the car which he done for V$250, and he also took me to the police station to take temporary plates for my car (they will last for 7 days untill my plates arrive).


As FM said the car pulls really good so I guess the engine didn't lose a lot of ponnies in the last 15 years, so I am excited about Saturday to go to @JDM_Racer to do a dyno and see the real numbers.
Also since I got the whole day off today I will go drop to @Ismael AKA Ramalhinho07.

Well there was a misscomunication between me and some GN guys but nvm it.

Now a little update :
Well if u belive in miracles then they happend, Doge used clean Desmond RegaMaster 17x8 (with some old fat tyres), but he removed the rims from the car for some reason and lost track of them. So when I bought the car from him it came whit 16x8 steelies, but got a phone call today that he found them and he even changed the tires to some really good 2nd hand tires whit quite some meat on them.

Well now what I need is to get new shocks,springs and brakes to finish the car. As I said the S15 is going to stay a daily so afther I do the dyno and see how much hp the engine actualy makes I will see to tune it to 350hp and keep it like that, since the car is not heavy a lot so 350HP will be enough for some Touge and track days.

Well there has bean one more mod that I had to do and that was to get the "SilviaRepublic" windshield banner that I managed to install. I made the shot of if just befour shuting the garage door down since I am exhausted from todays work so early bad time for me....

Soooooo, my shopping list has bean compleated xD.
Since garage nine is out of buissnes for who knows how long I decided to ask @FamouseMan (since he has got some connections xD) to help me get :

-Tein Super Street Coilovers for S15 Silvia
-4x Brembo 275mm discs
-4x Brembo 6 pyston calipers
And today the parts arrived at the shop where I work, and when I got my lunch brake I decided to skip lunch and install those parts (weight reduction bro).
Well the instalation of the parts was fast AF cause the coils were made for the Spec R S15 and were straight bolt on. The brakes were also for a S15 so they were straight bolt on fast too.

The current car ride height is 6.80 inches on all 4 corners, and I also had to get some low profile tires since the old ones that I had on the rims were hitting the inner wall.

I also removed the lip that was on the front bumper and its currently for sale, the price is V$150. I will post it in the used parts dealer so if somebody wants it pm me.
So since the install went fast I decided to go for a spin and check the cars behaviour now, and it feels awesome. Can't freaking wait tomorrow to go and tune that engine to 330-350hp. And on sunday I am going to visit @Markus for some touge runs whit my setted up daily :D


And now to the finances :
-Tein Super Street Coilovers for S15 Silvia - V$1750
-4x Brembo 275mm discs & 4x Brembo 6 pyston calipers - V$2350
-Bridgestone 215/40R17 - V$1250

-Total cost : -V$5350
-Remaining : V$6900

Thanks mate. Those rims were installed on the car long time ago by Doge, but some time ago he removed them for some reason and missplaced them. I was ready to buy the 17x10 OEM R33 rims when he called me to let me know that he found them and I am really happy about it.

Well I was pretty happy and excited for today since yestrday. Afther the dyno on the factory spec it showed that the engine lost only 5hp and whit only tweaking up the boost preassure just a little we reached the magical number, wait for it.....355HP at the wheels :D Yep you heared right (photos will be posted soon i will explain that later).

Well befour I say anything about today I will say this "You don't look for trouble, trouble finds you"
So today packed up and went for Osaka to meet Marcus and Ryan and pick up my spare blacktop cilinder head. I arrived 3h earlier in osaka cause I started 3h earlier then planned. So I decided to kill some time on the Osaka loop, and just afther I got on it a wild black 180SX Type X whitout plates and damaged front bumper closed on behind me.

He floored the throtle afther he see me enter the loop and though I would like to race him, just afther passing me he started to loose control over his car and bam hitted the center guard rail, then spun 180 degreas and hit the rail whit the rear end and stopped.

Thankfully the driver didn't got sevear damage only few scratches but thats all, and here to some irony, as he told me 10h befour he came to the loop, he finished the instalation of the Brembo GT brakes set (330mm brake discs, 6 pyston calipers all over- google it for more info). Well those brakes saved his life since he reduced his speed from 255km/h (~150mph) to 75km/h (~45mph) befour the impact.


The police arrived soon and thanks to a photo and testimony of a "eye whitnese" I will be in the police station for some interrogation.

And thats the reason for no photos of the dyno run, since the cops took me phone until they finish my interrogation and clear me of the charge for racing since I just entered the highway and that guy crashed.....Damn I hate this "At the wrong time at the wrong place" wish me luck not to go behind bars :(
Gonna call Marcus from the station to meet me there befour some touge runs
