  1. What do you think this will do to the value of second hand GTRs?
  2. Hi, not sure how many R35 owners on here I have an '08 with mid pipe upgrade only and I’m considering considering either: 1. Cobb off the shelf tune with TCM tune also (probably stage 1) 2. Custom ecutek tune and not sure whether to get TCM tune only The tuning and cobb resellers I speak to are divided on the TCM tune, some say it will shorten the life of the transmission and another said it is actually good for the transmission as with the TCM tune it doesn't drop to 6th and shift through the gears so much. Anyone with real world experience? The Cobb stage 1 tune doesn't seem that much of an improvement (custom tunes seem to pick up a lot more?). It also seems the stage 2 cobb picks up a lot more lower end power/torque (<4500rpm). I don't want to do injectors or intake so stage 2 is probably not an option. I want to get the most from this, but still maintaining good reliability (especially the gearbox), and just wondering if the cobb or custom is the way to go. thanks
  3. Hi just wanted to check a part number. looking at a timing belt for 2 cars - both rb25 R33GTST and R34GTT Are the belts the same and water pump? there’s 2 part numbers for the belt. Anyone know the difference? On ebay you seem to be able to get a genuine for about $65 but it says it’s made in Thailand? 13028-20P25 13028-20PXE
  4. I’ve just checked and it has the stock rear anti roll bar! Maybe I should just put on the stock front bar for now. Has anyone ever run just the white line front bar to any advantage?
  5. Thanks, I’ve got the GKtech. I’d like less understeer so maybe I should fit the stock sway bar and leave the white line in the rear? anyone had luck with that?
  6. I had a look at a tutorial on the HEL and it doesn’t seem to have those mounting A blocks, which keep the hoses from flapping around. Seems like the gK tech have some benefits..as they are more of a direct fit?
  7. Thread Revival! I’ve got an R33GTST that has the whiteline sway bar. I think it was on the hard setting and snapped one of the sway bar link brackets and I think on the other side the bar has been rubbing on the rubber brake line and worn it a way a little. I’ve almost fixed it all up and was considering putting the stock anti roll bar on to limit load on the bracket and avoid rubbing. Has anyone else had any issue. Alternatively I may just run the whiteline on the soft setting. Does the bar slide a bit left to right? Is there a way to avoid it? Thanks
  8. Thanks for all the tips! anyway to tell re. The crimp as I’m now considering the HEL?
  9. Oh right. I had a look at those but they didn’t seem to have the same blocks for mounting as the oem and the Gktech. To be adr approved don’t they need to have a plastic cover over the braiding?
  10. Thanks all are Gktech the best for the price or other options? Is the pedal feel worth the $200ish for the braided lines? managed to weld it up, not the prettiest welds but hopefully should hold. I welded both sides.
  11. Thanks for all that. Sounds sensible. I might swap back to the stock sway bar for now. Just had a brake problem, has anyone replaced this bit of hard line. Do I just take it off and get someone to pipe bend up something similar? I think the stray sway bar link may have contacted the brake line while it’s been disconnected ..
  12. I.e it looks like that bolt is just making sure the brake line/block is secured/located rather than anything else?
