Over this past weekend we got a chance to shoot one of the sickest S14’s we’ve ever laid our eyes on. This may be a bit of a biased opinion but we’ll let you do the judging. Our friend James Kent has come a long way with this “Yokosuka Nights” inspired Silvia. Having spent time overseas in Hong Kong and Yokosuka, James decided to trick out his neck-breaking ride to represent his roots.
The details on this S-Chassis is unreal. Starting from the front, his DMAX vented hood hovers over a Blacktop type-x modified SR20DET. The engine exhales through a PBM Cobra downpipe, which tapers to a ISIS test pipe, ISIS 4″ Blast pipes and ends with custom dual TI burnt 4″ tips.
Creeping through the Vertex style front bumper is a gigantic ISIS front mount intercooler. The front bumper flows right into the BN Sports 30MM front fenders and Nismo 270R style side skirts. James couldn’t just let the front fenders run wider than the rear, so he went with Chargespeed 50MM rear overfenders to sit over his sick wheel setup. He got his car custom painted, with a deep Midnight purple and a purple metallic flake.
Wheels always makes or breaks a car, and this setup is absolutely mind blowing. His wheel setup, 18×10.5 -21 front and 19×11.5 -16 Weds Kranze LXZ with a Black Polish finish has enough dish to plate a banquet. The Weds are locked in via limited edition Muteki SR48 Burning Blue Neon lugs.
This S14 rides like butter with custom spec’d Fortune Auto coilovers and Swift springs. And to continue with footwork mods, James enlisted many Megan parts to balance out the car, such as rear toe arms, traction rods and front tension arms.
For the interior, James sits snug in his Status Ring GT carbon kevlar seat and slams through the gears from his Circuit Soul “Hard Style” weighted shift knob. With a single press of his Bings “Drift” button, he can swing his car into drift and control his steering angle with his 330MM Personal Grint suede steering wheel.
We’d like to thank James and his girlfriend for the time to shoot his car! We’ve been waiting for this for a long time and it was well worth the wait. Make sure you check this car out at PNW events!
James would like to thank Circuit Soul, Nickel Automotive, GarageFive and Steven Thompson from Drift union!
