  1. Turbo Matching is the primary service Full Race provides for our customers. Most shops do not do this. Our staff members are trained on how to properly match turbochargers their 1st day working here. But you do not need us to do it, you can do this yourself by working through the matchbot webpage and watching the youtube tutorials. It amazes me how many shops, garrett authorized dealers, and high end race teams we work with never perform proper match analyses. On a daily basis i am surprised and continue to learn - Many times i will have an assumption, then check the match and realize the assumption was incorrect. the only way to have confidence is to crunch the numbers I have seen precision turbos fail from overspeed also. all manufacturer turbos will fail when overspeed occurs. The difference is precision turbos have no compressor map, no speed sensor port and are relatively large in diameter. And garrett turbos have these datas but do not have a user friendly interface to calculate operating points. It seems that many precision owners often select a bigger turbo than necessary (this avoids overspeed) as they focus on top end HP, but they will sacrifice response or time-to-torque. respectfully disagree lith - A friend/ex employee had a GTX3582R vband singlescroll and swapped to G30 vband singlescroll when they were released. The response was night and day improved with the G30. GTX35 is not even remotely close in terms of response. Inertia is king when it comes to this metric

  2. Progress back moving under its own power. Been spending a little bit of time sorting out the power steering setup since I didn't end up going electric. Went with an aeroflow tank as I stuffed up the original one trying to weld on dash fittings. Cut off the old bracket and made a template, copy to aluminium, cut/drilled and folded. Finished making lines and filled with fluid only to find I had hoses the wrong way on the rack. Switched them around, Bled it up and everything thing was all good. Also fixed cooling set up by moving one of the fans, got a new nismo thermostat just incase as the old one was around 11 years old. New coolant with demineralised water and now temps around 80c at idle. Still sorting idle with ethrottle as when I stab the throttle it doesn't return to idle smoothly or stalls so will keep adjusting the proportion and stall gain to make it right. List of things needed to get back on the road is getting smaller.

  4. If you have not built an engine before and you cannot afford to lose this one, I would really consider sending your pieces to a knowledgeable machinist and rebuilder to take care of this for you

  5. Popped down to Sydney on Saturday to pick up my 3 pallet loads of parts and my girls refurbished motor, Cheryl's engine is now home, thank god. I have to control myself as my plans at the moment do not include getting her in and running quickly, just nice to have her home.

  7. couple of other options, rb25 stagea has an oil filter adapter that sits at a convenient angle, and has no oil cooler attached. also, rb30 had the oil filter direct to the block, so you could look for those fittings. Makes it a bit hard to get to the filter unless you do a relocation as well

  8. Yes this is the actual heat exchanger. Retaining it with a new one is totally fine. It's definitely more of a heat exchanger to heat up the coolant faster than an actual oil cooler to cool the oil despite the description. It is definitely worth retaining if in cold climates with a street car. Yes Ross performance is Australian and make very good stuff. I think a few people within Australia will ship overseas that stock Ross parts like Hi Octane, Golebys or even Ross performance direct.

  10. I very sad to see the awesome cars suffering from time taking its toll. Sometimes I think of it like this the sooner I start the body restoration rust prevention the better I will at lest be ahead of every body else. Every body who owns a skyline that wants to keep it for the future will come to this work kicking and screaming. As a great musician once said "Rust never sleeps, Neil Young". Then with the prices of theses cars going up so fast its making this work worth while. this is what she looks like on the outside.

  11. Every 6 months or so seems fair to bump. Price drop too. $250 shipped in Aus. Cheaper for local pickup.
