serial number doesnt like right :? read it directly off the firewall or vin plate, dont go by the import plate.

should start with JDMFC3S........
or JDM1.....
or JDMZ......

The 8th digit of the VIN is for engine type

1: N/A Model
2: Turbo Model

Massive nitpick here:

You write infini had 10% stiffer springs and lowered one inch - i have a set of infini coilovers and the springs are exactly the same (measured) and no lower - however they could be replacement springs? Not sure.

Yeah good point, however yeah yours may have been replaced, or the stiffer springs came out on the latter infini models ie: infini III and IV, what model did the set you have come from infini II?

Yeah true, i actually have no idea what model infini they are from. No way of checking other than the number stamped on the side, which probably wouldnt tell me anything. But they're red and have that cool infini symbol! I think we should just disregard my original post haha

Same case with mine. I have no letters after "FC3S" just numbers. And the 8th didgit is a 6.

How can I check exactly what model my car is? Trying to find accurate wiring diagram and tuning procedure, because nothing I can find on the net matches my car.

Great info there, I looked at a car the other and needs another wiring loom fitted. I want to find out apart from the engine and ecu wiring harness, would the rest of the harness be the same between series 4 & 5?

VERT FACTORY BODY MODIFICATIONS

The whole front subframe is radically stronger on the vert (in fact there are tuners in Japan that build lower subframe supports for the coupes that try and duplicate the set up).

Add in the lighter stock wheels,

Radically stronger rear side to side strut tower supports (no rear strut tower bars needed here- its built into the body).

Thicker windsheild A pillars and frame.

The built in roll bar (built into the rear top assembly- so that again the side to side rear is re-enforced weither the top is down or not).

Entire underbody frame rails are beefed up.

Floor panel vert specific

Heavy duty vert specific firewall parts

Heavy duty engine mounts

Kick panels re-enforced

Behind seats re-enforced to further prevent the body flex.

Heavy duty front stabilizer bar from the Sport/ Turbo models

Heavy duty rear stabilizer bar and bushings (vert specific)

Vert specific springs

Kick panels (including sub sections)
A pillers
Entire front suspension Sub-frame
Engine mounts.
Running boards
Lower seat back to lower B section
B pillar
B section cross bracing
Integrated roll bar (part of the top assembly, but acts a seconday build up to the B section cross bracing.
C section (as the coupe does not even have that)
Rear upper cross section
