  1. Past hour
  2. G'day guys. My R34 GTT Neo has developed a problem where it has no power steering assist. Now I've covered off on all p/s basics first. No hoses leak, fluids replaced. No air bubbles etc. Still no good. Former mechanic replaced power steering pump, still no fix. We've even replaced the steering rack itself, still no power steering. We've isolated the PS pump and confirm that its working as intended and the head unit solenoid on the right hand side of the rack is working as it should also. We're simply just not getting any steering assist. Any ideas?? I've done some reading on the forum and read that hicas can cause some issues. The vehicle does not have a hicas lock bar. There has been no hicas light on the dash appearing. Anything I can check for on the hicas end of things that would prevent power steering working as needed?? The car has recently had a turbo upgrade (low mount, standard mani with ext wastage fabbed) that was put in by the mechanic prior to the car having these issues. Anything could have been touched in that install that's prompted these problems? I've scouted the forum but found nothing thus far and am simply lost. Appreciate any help!
  3. Today
  4. Hi guys, the opportunity has come up to buy the turbo, manifolds, dump pipe etc from an M35 Stagea for pretty cheap. I've read that this setup bolts straight up to a V35 coupe but cant really find much info on the matter. Has anyone done this, or confirm it can actually be done?
  5. On a more interesting note, I met up with a Cefiro part vendor local to me and he had a couple A31 steering racks for sale. One was a Hicas edition 2WD and the other was from a 4wd Cefiro. The interesting bit is that the Hicas one did NOT have the pressure sensor valve like mine does but of course it has the extra hoses for the Hicas, however... the 4wd Hicas DID have the pressure valve sensor... So my guess is... the previous owner swapped out the original steering rack with whatever he could find, in this case a 4wd one, and ended up chopping off the connector which would explain why it doesn't have one, since there is no where for it to plug into anything. Also might explain why the damn things has been leaking since I bought it... it probably didn't fit right.
  6. I was thinking of that but the older Cefiros have square connectors. It'd have to come from a 92-94 Cefiro where they came with the rounded connectors but they are missing the oil pressure switch connector in the starter harness. I may just break down and pay someone that knows what they're doing with the wiring so I don't end up frying my ECU. lol
  7. My apologies guys. I should've paid further attention to the thread about the part number of that sensor. It's for sniffing out exhaust gas from vehicles in front of you and if it does detect it, then it will revert your intake from fresh air to recirculate so that you don't get stunk out by a bogan's disgusting belching diesel ute. I'll report my last post in order to remove the misinformation.
  8. https://www.google.com.au/search?q=rb25det+turbo+water+feed&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjd-uvPmrLlAhU0meYKHQh0AwIQ_AUIESgB&biw=1531&bih=817 https://www.google.com.au/search?biw=1531&bih=817&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=HTCwXYBz3pXCA5SKjdgN&q=rb25det+turbo+water+return&oq=rb25det+turbo+water+return&gs_l=img.3...33813.35701..36024...0.0..0.233.1744.0j9j1......0....1..gws-wiz-img.......0.fZGBa9-PxfE&ved=0ahUKEwjA9ZrRmrLlAhXeinAKHRRFA9sQ4dUDCAY&uact=5 There are so many clues in that lot.
  9. If I can find it in less than a few minutes of googling, i will be very mad.
  10. Had it at the tuners for a check up and turns out there is dramatic difference in the fuel pressure between the new reg and the stock reg so shes been running lean. On the dyno she sprung a big coolant leak at the back of the head so on the tow truck home... Now i have to pull the motor half out to fix what i think is a welch plug backing out. That sinco mani and 3076 though.... 🤔🤗🤗😛
  11. Oh its not airbag related @The Max Its the gas sensor module. Plug it in, leave it unplugged. Your call OP. wont make the slightest difference in a crash.
  12. Not to sure which model 350GT you have, however you can upgrade to 350z/350GT Brembo brakes super easily. Cant say ive seen someone do the Akebono's from a 370z/Gt on a 350 when the brembo's are a cheap upgrade.
  13. Hey all, I have a 350gt coupe the brakes are starting to feel like they want some new discs. And it got me thinking... Do the v36 or 370gt brakes fit my 350gt ?? If so what is involved ? It would be nice if they do and could maybe find a set somewhere going for cheap off a wrecked car or something, I hate how small the brakes are on the cars !! Also would the brake upgrade be any bigger/better thanks. Cheers.
  14. Yeah the only reason I post questions on these forums is because Ive googled it and looked up shit but I still can't find exactly the answers im after but I'll keep looking
  15. When you give me $60k to give to someone to do it for me. That should get me a new powertrain and drivetrain, installed and tuned (properly). Could I just go LS instead???? https://www.whichcar.com.au/features/6-litre-ls-swapped-toyota-86-street-car With you paying and all, I thought it would be polite to ask....
  16. to make the Precut 3mm smaller is too much , but it is depending on your Leather. I could stretch my Lether sheet more or less depending on the direction. So my way to solve this: I left the last 2cm to the knob untouched, with enough Lether left . I put the Leather on the Lever as shown above and at last i cut the Leather and make the puncture and the 4 stitches. Make shure the Leather is really tight and you will be able to get it under the rabbet easily.
  17. The idea itself seems to be like a raffle ticket draw. You buy X amount of entries for X dollars, but with additional promo geared towards you if you wanted to start flipping cars? Hands down a clever business idea, waaaay better than a yearly subscription if you are talking about straight up cash profit. That said, Website could do with some more 'actual' content around the operation of the platform and what you are 'buying'
  18. Yes the Xtreme sprung single plate ones above are where it starts for an attempt at retaining the stock clutch feel. All have heavier pressure plate. All single plates are generally designed to be compatible with the standard flywheels, yet usually have light chromoly versions to suit as an option available. The Exedy equivalent is this: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/EXEDY-clutch-kit-HEAVY-DUTY-for-NISSAN-skyline-R34-GTR-RB26DETT-2-6litre-/131647971336&ved=2ahUKEwj91Jf2x7HlAhVq73MBHbJvCuQQFjAMegQIBhAB&usg=AOvVaw3p4reyX6EoViZHJ3c-TBer&cshid=1571805652159 Multiplates are generally all designed around using a supplied light flywheel for that specific clutch, that's why multiplates are more expensive as they generally always come with a flywheel, and singles generally do not. You mentioned the carbon clutches, they are great and now will only use a carbon clutch. Anyone who has seen my posts in the last ten to fifteen years will know the clutch troubles I've had, and that I think the ATS carbons are completely on another level compared to any other clutch or brand on the market. The triples are stupidly high rated, like 1400hp +, and drive like a dream. Seriously if you drove one no way anyone would think they were a solid centre triple, as they are so progressive because they have carbon friction discs and can be slipped, not on or off engagement. Only give away that it's a multiplate is that they have the signature multiplate rattle when clutch is depressed, which I don't see as a negative. I like it when someone who thinks they know a thing or two say when the clutch is depresssed "what's wrong with your car ?", it cracks me up. I think now if I DON'T hear that sound, it must be a shit clutch as ALL multiplates should rattle when depressed, if not the clutch is not disengaging properly, and that is very,very bad. These carbon clutches mostly on the market like OS giken, Nismo, Exedy and ATS are generally carbon friction discs, but still with metallic floating discs and pressure plate. ATS has the extra option of carbon coating the metallic floating discs and pressure plate also, so it's carbon on carbon making them last even longer and handle more torque. Carbon also has a natural tendency to absorb drive line shockload compared to other materials, great for launching at high GTR rpms. That's what I run and I love them. It's a shame though as the price is through the roof now, I used to get the triples for around $2600 trade price, now the triples are a $3500- $4500 clutch depending on options. RHDjapan is about the best place to source now Australian Clutch Services in Adelaide (aka XClutch, Xtreme) don't appear to source them anymore. Not that this really applies here, but If you really wanted to get crazy ATS is the only ones who make true carbon / carbon clutches. That is, carbon friction discs, carbon floating discs (not coated, actual full carbon), and carbon pressure plates ! Freaking amazing with 1000hp single, 2000hp twin, 3000hp triple all the way to 4000hp quad plate. Apparently wears like 0.1 - 0.4mm after 300 launches across entire clutch, which is unheard of compared to anything else available. You can have one too with the singles around $7000, twins $9000 and the triples around $12000. Quad - $15000 (yes not a typo) This is the type of clutch that will outlive the life of any transmission and most cars though. For drooling awesomeness: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.a-t-s.co.jp/00english/01e-clutch/index_fcc.html&ved=2ahUKEwiwhLCb0bHlAhWi7XMBHSqcDBIQFjAIegQIAxAB&usg=AOvVaw2Hmd1F-64fNivjXO5BZieY&cshid=1571808466663 Sorry, getting a bit of topic for you now, just pointing out what's out there and illustrating how carbon clutches have really changed the game, which seems to have gone a bit under the radar as most people don't run them because of the cost. Coming back down to Earth, Check out ATS. You can definitely find something suitable. If you want to go down the carbon path, the starting point carbon clutches would be something like this: Single - $2300 https://www.greenline.jp/catalogue/item.php?category=drivetrain&subcat=Clutches&brand=ATS&series=&name=Carbon+Clutch+(Single+Plate)&carcode=R34C&fromlink=2 Twin - $3200 https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.rhdjapan.com/ats-across-carbon-twin-clutch-kit-spec-1-1350kg-getrag-nismo-shaft-light-weight-bnr34.html&ved=2ahUKEwinq_r807HlAhVn7HMBHbSeDB0QFjAKegQIBhAC&usg=AOvVaw3uoyATS9IGvVQQEMO-a6u7&cshid=1571808839898 Either would suit you fine. BK out, - back to work.
  19. Maybe airbags went off, and was disconnected/SRS light taped over?
  20. The box. There's a thread on R32 AFM fix in DIY section, have a poke around there.
  21. Something about exclusive access to car flippers or something. I'd like an explanation as well.
  22. Nismo clutches come with a flywheel. Also, a long time ago I had a single plate organic in an R32 GTR. It was fine. (Was used with a single mass flywheel) https://www.xtremeclutch.com.au/en/product-range/clutch-kits/stage-1
