  1. They all claim to have 1 million percent more flow and made more power on made up dyno graphs, by whoever is building the turbos, but hardly ever translate into real world gains. I've seen it so many times. Then again a lot of people just care about a higher number on their dyno graph

  2. I assume you're referring to the rocker cover bolts. Was this one if those cheap shitty solid washer type kits that don't use a factory style rubber crush insulator ? If so, there is a reason the factory use these rubbers - to try and prevent overtightening. Also the torque on these is only 2 - 4Nm. Use the new factory stuff instead of the bling stuff - and actually torque them down in sequence. Not that this mattered in this situation with regards to sealing as the rear of your covers were kicked up by the billet half moons not being flush anyway.

  4. Few picture of my car over here in UK. Shows all of the parts on the car ( some with before and after pics after wiping years of road grime off to reveal the badges), the resin injected sills, and all the parts the last owner removed from the car when he gave it a mild tune ( very glad he elected to keep these!) Forgive the horrendous blue hoses he had fitted, almost seem to be the law in the UK that when you imported a skyline , you had to fit blue hoses the second it landed!! Engine wise, I will in the future, remove the cam cover and look at the valve spring caps to conform these are the titanium items fitted in build. Any one in aware of any of these residing in Australia?

  6. As promised install and setup post. This may come in parts The Shockworks coilovers are a very nice quality piece of kit, very beefy and a nice neutral colour Through chatting to them about my goals for the car they were able to offer a custom solution with valving as well as spring rates and lengths (more on that later). they also come with their own install gloves. Very nice touch The Stanceparts aircups kit too is very well made and for those not familiar with them. No, they are not bags. But rather an air piston that essentially replaces your top hat. They are designed to be run in the "down" position and only lifted up to pass obstacles, get on hoists/jacks, and when cruising past rbts... When down they are a solid alloy spacer, this means no squish and the coilovers handle as normal. Now I mentioned spacer, in the down position they are exactly 20mm thick. They sit on the shaft portion of the coilover which means they to take up 20mm of the total stroke. The Shockworks coilover I ordered have a stroke of 100mm, so with the Stanceparts aircup installed that is now 80mm stroke. As the aircup is now the new upper spring seat this means the total "max low" will be reduced by at least 20mm depending on how the coilovers are made. To partially negate this my shockworks coilovers were configured with 20mm shorter springs. The aircup set needed to be ordered to suit correct shaft diameter, in this case 15mm as that's how they seal and fit to the coilover. The maximum lift the aircups can provide is 50mm but this will depend on a number of factors including your setup, spring rate and droop. The reason for this is that the lift actually comes from the droop or wheel extension in your suspension. This is another reason why they are not designed to be driven in the up position long term. When in the up position you will have no droop or wheel extension. Next up the install and setup

  7. I dont use sealant ben, i use my own various bodily fluids. Wasnt tons, enough to give a little 'squeeze out the sides'.

  11. Please do yourself a favour and google speedtek and Alex Kantarovski, should be plenty of reading. I know there is a topic RE speektek gearsets on this forum

  12. Yeah but if you ever order from efi solutions, get some of their aluminium ones. Only a few bucks, fit perfect, haven't had to touch them since were installed, and have had rockers off/on 4 times since then.

  13. There and old saying, if it’s not broken then don’t fix it. Rubber ones have worked for years

  14. I wouldn't be surprised if by "healthy amount of sealer" you put on way too much and that caused them to sit high

  15. not familiar with cooper zeons but a quick google search tells me they are a form of semi all terrain??? I know you guys have different weather conditions to us here in oz but if this is the path you've gone down i'd be concerned...

  16. Poor design? Rubber ones sit up a little bit like that cos they can squash flat. My Taarks aluminium ones sit flush.

  19. This is the 89 Gtr I was lucky enough to pick up off a friend who’s heart just wasn’t in the car anymore. He purchased it after his father passed and then the clutch went on him and it sat ever since behind a tractor dealership for years. Gunna get it running and will keep posted till we reach a nice single build on e85 with this one. Very clean for how long is sat outside. Will be a great project for my wife to learn the ways of the bnr32. I am lucky to have someone that lets me enjoy my true passion of r32 gtr’s. There is literally no gtr culture here where I live but it’s become part of my blood over time....

  20. Hey guys, I need some help. Ive got a series 1 r33 gtst with a blown 25det. Ive bought a series 2 motor to replace the blown one. I see that the drive for the cam angle sensor is Different to the series 1. Is there a way to get around without changing loom and ecu. Can the series two sensor work on the series one ?

  21. Yeah they work great for having the car at a static low height on the coilover then raising it up for driveways, speedhumps, rbt's
