Abdi owns this 1996 all black S14 which is one of the very few road registered Silvias in the region.
So why are Silvia's so popular within the drift community? Well at one point they were relatively cheap and in disposable. Being RWD and lightweight they go hand in hand with a bit of sideways action. As they have been around for a while companies have had years developing parts for them, many of which are similar or interchangeable with their bigger and heavier brother, the Skyline.
Their bays are big enough to fit a variety of engines which include Nissan's six cylinder RB series engines, Toyota's 2JZ or Chevvy’s V8 LS series all of which are popular with drifters from all around the world.
The SR is powered by a Garret GT28 ball bearing turbo which is similar in size to the very popular T28 which is found on the stock SR20 in the S15. The GT28 however spools up a little faster due to its ball bearing design giving it a much better response low down the range. A Nismo 2-way differential helps this S14 get sideways, possibly one of the most important upgrades when purchasing a Silvia.
The exterior features a full M-Sport body kit, Navan spoiler and a set of Rays TE37. With everything finished in black giving this Silvia a true murdered look.
