Garrett Advancing Motion unveiled a Formula DRFIT-spec ’99 Nissan Silvia S15 built by Enjuku Racing for YouTube personality Adam LZ at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
In the hands of Enjuku Racing, the once-neglected project car received a complete transformation, resulting in a Formula DRIFT competition-level car. To begin the transformation, the chassis was completely stitch welded and received a fully custom TIG-welded cage, along with a tubed front and rear end. Enhancing the vehicle’s exterior esthetic and aerodynamics is a Vertex Edge wide-body kit giving the car an additional 30mm in width overall. Completing the car’s exterior transformation is a Black Rose wrap.
LZ’s S15 is powered by a Toyota 2JZ-GTE stroked to 3.4L utilizing a Brian Crower stroker kit, with a custom Sleeper Designs billet aluminum intake manifold paired with an RMR throttle body, along with a DOCRace Turbo Manifold, connected to a Garrett GTX3584RS turbocharger. The vehicle is outfitted with a custom ER Spec 4-in. oval exhaust from the turbo back. Pumping E85 to the engine are two Deatschwerks DW300 fuel pumps along with Deatschwerks 1200cc injectors. The engine is managed by an ECUMASTER EMU Black and tuned by RS-Enthalpy in Tampa, Florida, and makes 915hp and 835 lb.-ft. of torque at the wheels.
Delivering the power of this engine to the tires is a Samsonas six-speed sequential transmission, coupled with a Winters Performance quick-change rear end. Keeping the S15 planted to the ground is a set of BC Racing BR Series 2-way coilovers, paired with Wisefab front-lock and rear suspension kits to provide tunability and steering angle at lock. To complete the car’s overall stance is a set of 18-in. SSR SP3s with a width of 9.5 in. in the front and 10.5 in. in the rear.
