  1. Quick progress update: This process has taken much longer than anticipated, but the end is finally near! The machine work was recently completed and the engine is being assembled. Since I've waited this long I decided not to postpone the cams and E85, so on with Tomei 262 cams and a set of Tomei springs and cam gears. Chassis mods include Fortune Auto 500 series coils, a set of 17" RPF1's, GKTech front upper control arms, new OEM tie-rods, and GKTech HICAS delete. Here are a few pics of the progress (the car on the lift is prior to coilovers being installed). I can't wait to get behind the wheel again!

  2. Price: $250 may be negotiable Location: gold coast Can post within aus.. Sorry for all the info , many on here know how these are made.. Nissan skyline r33 gtr/gtst/gts rear boot garnish light. ..very rare and you can not buy there anywhere only if someome makes one... This is in color..sonic silver.. Color on a r33 series 2 gtst 96 and up and also on any model r33 gtr... it does blend ok against the spark silver which is the silver on a r33 95 model and down. This was made by me and a painter.. Was a clear r33 garnish..then letter where covered with letter tape then primered painted sonic silver left to dy then the tape removed from letters and any remaining small paint scratched of with a blade so the letters all light up 3d even the side's of the letters ( where Nissans factory options did not stick out 3d..this was all done professionally and 2pac paint..then it eas clear coasted to seal it all in... this took many hours ams alot of detail... The back was cut out neat aa per pic and a el board cut and installed to give even lighting acorss tgr letters so no dark spots..it has a inverter installer tge black box for 12v....once el board was in it has been sealed with a foam rubber soft material to seal it in amd no water also blacked taped so nice amd safe.. All you need to do is unbolt your old one connect thr negative wire to the negative on the tail light and positive to tail light so will turn on aa soon as you turn your lights on.. It is in.red el as red is legal ..i did have this light blue ans looked great though may not be legal any other color then red om the rear...i can change this board ti blue if needed though will have to charge $60 to do this. As pic there is a small bit of paint chiped of though lucky its no where near letters and is close to the top..so can have this blended and would cost no more then $70 to do. Only selling this due to no longer have a r33

  3. Cheers man, Appreciate it. I already have some questions to fire your way but will let them rip probably in a separate thread or via direct message. Stoked to see there are others on here who have felt my pain.

  4. The TCUs like to talk to the (factory) ECU, so they know what is going on. Take the factory ECU away from them and they pack a sulk. If you want to do that, you need an aftermarket ECU that can pretend (to the TCU) to be the factory ECU, to keep it happy.

  6. Use a proper gas lens with a large cup >10 and you'll be surprised at how much better again you'll get it. Or if you feel like giving the credit card a run use the furick welding cups, even better again

  8. I run them on the race car, but don't have anything back to back to show any difference. I have no reason to believe the "lightweight" does anything, but underdriving the alternator, water pump and power steering pump when using sustained high rpm in track use makes sense to me (you could also achieve this through a different balancer of course.) Note the Greddy oversize pullies (water pump in particular) requires the standard harmonic balancer to be turned down a little in a lathe to clear the pulley.

  9. I was waiting for a response like this... I have been buying parts from places like this overseas for over 20 years. This is not the norm and RHDjapan, Perfect Run or Nengun will absolutely not change the declared price - You were just lucky. What I have noticed is it can sometimes be dependant on the shipping service. EMS is the only one that seemed to get through no taxes probably about 60% - 70% of the time for me. This is not an option at the moment due to Covid19, EMS services are suspended to Australia. DHL, UPS, FedEx and other international courier services will never let you get away with it. You will always need to pay to get your stuff out of customs if the declaration value is over $1000au. Possibly, but I'm guessing still over $4k. With the prices mentioned, I would be going with Just Jap for a new one. Anything that is large and/or expensive that is already available in Australia is generally better off being sourced through Australian sources, as their is no hidden costs or surprises.
