S12 After Market Performance Sites Anyone ???

There aren't any  You basically answered your own question. If you swap in a KA or CA18DET or SR20, then your engine aftermarket choices are big. Everything for the CA18ET is *CUSTOM* in most cases.

A few things you can get:

- T25 or T25G or T28 turbocharger, will bolt onto stock CA18ET exhaust manifold, but the T28 will need a spacer to clear the compressor housing. You can get the spacer on the internet from a variety of turbo accessory companies.

- Apex'i AFC's have been successfully wired into our cars, using better flowing airflow meters, and letting us up the fuel with larger injectors and a better fuel pump (think Walboro).

- Blaster SS Coils from MSD. You can buy them from Summit Racing or any other number of vendors that sell MSD ignition products. You need two of them to upgrade your stock coil system.

- *I believe* that any R200 aftermarket LSD (such as a Kaaz or Cusco) will work in our differential cases.

- A Z31 (first generation 300ZX) rear urethane bushing kit from Prothane will work for S12 IRS rear ends.

- Canuck makes lowering springs for our cars, if you search on here  (which I suspect you haven't done), you will probably find the link to them.

- If you convert to S13 front suspension, you then can use S13 aftermarket for front suspension.

- Megan Racing makes a full coilover kit that uses S13 adustable fronts and adustable rears for our cars.

- For CA18ET, boost controllers and BOV's are whatever you find and like, you just have to custom fit them.

That's about it, really. There's nothing else that is really CA18ET specific. Even your transmission for that year car is less supported than the later "C" transmissions.

There aren't any "sites" devoted to selling parts for this car. Most of the parts available aren't specific to the S12, but just happen to be able to be used on it, either bolt on or with minor modifications. There are no S12-specific stores. We have a guy named Bart on here who makes some cool parts for the S12, but other than him, there isn't really much else if anything at all.

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch
