  1. Gave the intake manifold a sand blast and one last weld and she's ready for powdercoating. I cannot believe how much time I've wasted on this bloody thing.... I could have carved one out of a piece of stone quicker.... Ahh well, its been good for the alloy tigging practice.

  2. Questions 1. Budget (car-insurance-rego-spare funds for when stuff break) 2. Is this your only vehicle 3. Do you have an OPAL card (or access to another vehicle or pushbike when it breaks) 4. Your mechanical aptitude 5. Work space (garage-carport-driveway-street) 6. Licence type (manual-auto-p plate) 7. Seating capacity and passengers (whislt the 86/brz is a good little package, if you need to put a normal size human in the back they will end up hating you after 10 minutes) 8. Tools 9. Do you have someone to take with you to "inspect" a vehicle 10. Patience (you will require alot) 11. AWD-RWD-FWD preference 12. Main use of car (street-track-rally-mad skids) 12. The understanding that all the money you drop into a car will not be recouped at sale time For a first car I always recommend some cheapish stock car you can learn to service and spanner on, and one that after a year or so you can flip if needed and not lose to much cash on

  3. If your talking a prefabricated exhaust any exhaust shop can fit it. Even you can fit it with the help of a youtube video (it's really easy). But if your talking custom exhaust that will cost a lot more and could sound shit or great. Prefabricated exhaust have been tried and tested so you will have a better idea what your getting.

  4. Hi all Names Rob. Just bought myself a 370GT and absolutely loving it. Haven’t been a part of a club in about 10 years ago when I had my first car, a 96 FTO GPX. Been company cars since then. I’ve joined to try and learn more about my car, and what I can do to it and with it. Found out about this forum before buying my car, and saw some great minds contributing to the community. Hope to speak to some of you during my time here! Thanks, Rob

  5. When I had my old R33 I spent more time driving hire cars that that old boat. Track it, break it, fix it, rinse and repeat. Old Uncle Duncan did warn me about tracking my daily, I was just to stupid to listen. I do still have all the oil stains to remind me of those days gone by though, and the masive hole in the bank account that the Mrs reminds me of every time I modify my other cars or bikes. Fun times though

  6. Ok, his real name is Joshua Redman, mobile number is 0412 997 269. He made one payment and then decided to block my number, I often catch up him slip up and answer private numbers to act like a stunned piece of shit and then hang up. He claimed to have Covid-19 and had to spent his tax return on medicine so couldn't pay. Being Tasmania hasn't had any active cases of public transmission in forever this is very unlikely.

  7. Ask to see the auction sheet and the de-registration papers. Not a chance the mileage on either is correct

  8. my GTR has no ignition barrel light. The ring is opaque plastic. The cigarette ring light is 286 on the r32 it is probably the same on an R34.

  10. Crazy sequence of events, but the issue ended up being the starter relay was faulty so Nissan replaced that and then the steering lock assembly was giving no response so they had to bypass that for me. If I want a new Steering Lock Assembly for the added security, they quoted me $2265 for the parts and to have them fitted. I'm happy for now to not worry about that too much. So all in all, considering multiple services struggled to get any response from the vehicle, I dropped it off at Nissan on the 01/10 with no ignition and no ignition lights and got it back today 08/10 for $761 and everything is working fine. Pretty damn happy with that result. If anyone else has a similar issue, I hope for your sake it is as simple as your Starter Relay being faulty. Thank you everyone for your help! Thank you for everything TheMax, you have been an insanely good help. Also thanks for updating the post for anyone else that is struggling with something similar, absolute LEGEND!

  11. Yep. BRZ if you want to placate Subaru people. There's a reason there's 7.7 million of them per square km.

  12. Cometic head gaskets need the block & head to be perfectly flat to seal. So if you were just servicing the head, popping it onto a stock block it will leak. Tomei & Nitto head gaskets are somewhat more forgiving due to their design, you could say it has an o-ring around each cylinder. I've put 2 bar of boost into my motor with ARP2000 studs and it has seen nearly 100 laps of Wakefield Park before it died from oil starvation. No evident signs of coolant being pushed out or combustion gases in the coolant (black specks).

  13. Challenge accepted, will try over 450kW using ARP2000. Side note, quoting power is HP is like measuring your penis length starting from your anus.

  14. Coming from -9's with all the fruit... Single FTW - It rips! More power everywhere. Transient response is insane, zero lag between gear shifts, and that's with Kelford 272 long duration cams too! Even on 98 pump fuel which is about 365kw @20psi it still shits all over the twin -9's. And the GTX noise is just magic, it's like a HKS T51 ?

  15. Here's some info for you guys wondering about the GTX3576R gen 2 on a stock bottom end RB26 (Head refreshed). Mine is single scroll, T3 with .82 housing. Running 272 cams. Made 440kw on E85 - roughly 25 psi or so. Full boost according to tuner is at around 3800-3900 rpm and pulls all the way to redline of 8100rpm.
