C&Y S15

May 10, 2011

I don’t think there is anything so universal between motoring dudes than good old fashioned internal combustion engine porn. Whether you are young, old, into early American cars, Euros, Japanese cars or even motorcycles, the groin clenching satisfaction from seeing something so well crafted is no doubt appreciated by all. Before checking into Avantgarde, we were on our way back from C&Y Sports which to my dismay was not storing their SR20DE + NOS Sanitora drag car but rather a stack of other fairly interesting high calibre builds. Take a look at this first picture. A tasty 3SGTE drowned in HKS, OS Giken and Trust parts delivers that muscle spasm whilst the polished front facing plenum and V-mounted intercooler suggest something more impressive than the initial brand name spotting.

Wait a minute. That doesn’t look like an old Toyota engine bay?

Oh dang. Putting a 3SGTE into an S15 is definitely not your usual swap! Due to my lack of Japanese speaking I didn’t ask more about the engine and the reason why he chose it over the SR20. A quick Internet scavenge turned up a link to an Import Tuner feature from 2007 which explains Yoshikuni san’s desire to show off his skills and promote C&Y. When I saw the car in November last year it looked slightly different to what was displayed in 2007. Previously, it made over 700HP with a HKS T04Z turbo on the side and although I can’t comment on the current power figures you could assume the 2.2L 3SGTE power is still up there.

C&Y Sports impressed and I may do a post of the other cars that were hanging around. For now though, check out their 2J Z32.
