I've got a 14a in green, and tbh I chose that over the skyline gts, smaller lighter and a lot of fun, the main drawback is oil starvation like the skylines, if you get a standard one, a z32 maf, bigger injectors, fmic, bigger turbo, exhaust and de-cat, good map and 300-350bhp is straight on tap. Have a look on "sxoc" (same user name on there too) And they are really holding their prices now.
s14a's are a bastid for rusting at the front of the rear wheels and round the sill. Ive yet to see an s14a that didnt suffer from it.
I had an r33 gtst, sold it and bought the s14a. I immediately wanted my skyline back. Within a few months i sold the 14a and bought another skyline which i still have today. Supose you could say im just a skyline man.
Yeah the "scowl" as for the rust issue, yup that's true, so undersealing after decent prep is a priority, (but thats where i start with every car) aside from that I think they're brill, obviously there are good uns and bad uns, oh and if your anything over 5'8 you'll struggle to get adults in the back.
I had an s14 K spec, must be 5 or 6 years ago now. Fresh import from japan at the time, was a minter, great fun. It's the one car i'm always sorry i sold, and always keep an eye out on the classifieds, cos i'd defo buy it back. Engines get a bit soft when you get to about 350 hp. In standard form they are every bit as quick as a standard rb25 skyline, but aren't as tuneable.
