I have had 3 s14a's and loved them. Great crack, go for an 14a as way better looking.

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.

S14 front




S14a front




There is other differences, tail lights, interior etc
Red top engine is only in the 180sx as fair as i remember.
180 also a great buy, but avoid a s13 200sx like the clap.

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.

i had and s14a and loved it! standard suspension, standard wheels, 3 inch line, a tight diff and a smile from ear to ear everytime i got in it!
so much fun!
i prefere the older s14 though, big dishy wheels slammed and treated like a cheap slut, nice

but would still have a skyline over it

S14A is far nicer and not as round as the S14

SR20DET is a great engine but can suffer from oil starvation, very tuneable

TDP.ie do alot of custom parts of them

what about an S15 SpecR, same engine and looks even nicer again
