  1. I have a new Series 3 box, haven't broken anything yet with around 700hp, I go easy into 3rd gear. Have been tossing up about the sequentials. Lately the word has been PPG = probably not, a few people who've had them haven't been too satisfied with how they hold up A few big HP GTRs have switched to Samsonas and handling the power well. Albins seems quite new to market, unsure how good they are and how they handle the power. Big money to drop on a gearbox. I'm tossing up between Samsonas and Albins but will definitely want to know what's got the better track record on holding the power
  2. block brace is a good idea if you want to push for more power
  3. Speedflow hoses suit BW EFR turbo when used on 6boost manifold, removed from RB26. The short hose is used when a small dash fitting is welded to the factory hard pipe near the cam cover, it gives it a nice OEM look From the front. You may require an adapter on the block or turbo. Cost me about $350-$400. Sell for $100
  4. Stainless Dump pipe suit BW EFR 1.05 rear housing mounted on 6boost T4 manifold Removed from R33 GTR, RB26 Great for somebody planning an EFR Single turbo conversion. $300
  5. Red line is 9180, Blue line 8474. From limited street driving I can't tell a real difference at all in most conditions, no turbo is the clear winner but im inclined to feel the 9180 better suits my engine so far. I'll do some more testing with high lift cams and a 9280
  6. My EFR9180 and EFR8474 on 2.8 with Vcam Step II / ex HKS 272 8.7 Absolutely visceral to drive
  7. Hi Guys. I'm putting together my 2.8 engine. The exhaust will start off with a HKS 272 10.2mm lift. Eventually I wanted to experiment going with very big lift, such as JUNS 272 which has 11.35mm lift. I can only imagine to get that lift, the lobe will have a more agressive ramp and get more lift earlier in the duration. This question is for exhaust only as I won't be playing around with the intake. So far I had been under the impression high lift with same duration only ads benefits and no drawbacks. Can anyone with experience with this add some input?
  8. Yes that work in the pictures was done at Cut Corners Red Tuning
  9. The shop I used in Beckenham returned my car like this. It's a small sample of the amateur work done Turbo oil drain fouling on turbo manifold, look at it beginning to bubble up. Brought them a brand new gearbox to fit, they put no oil in it and Dynod it like that. They told me to not let it become a subject of an online forum discussion Drove a 50mm long bolt into the RB26 fuel rail mount thread replacing the existing 40mm Plazmamann one already in there. It bottomed out onto coolant rail, mount snapped, proceeded to Dyno car with snapped fuel rail mount. As I like to make fair assessment, I bought a spare manifold/spacer assembly and on the bench I was able to mock up that the installed bolt was indeed too long and caused the failure. Be careful on your choice and ensure you get good work regardless of who you choose. You earned the money fairly.
  10. Hi All. I'm wondering if anyone has recommendations for a good dial gauge kit that they've used on an RB26. Got to get the gauge located right at the correct spot and angle and a good sturdy base to sit in the valley. If anybody has done this before I'd much appreciate any recommendations.
  11. Very few people who I'd trust in WA to tune, but also have a GTR in their care, even the usual recommendations a bit hit and miss lately from feedback
  12. Hi Guys. I've got Nismo S-Tunes in my R33 GTR. I like the ride comfort and handling but at times you can still feel the car could do with something better. I'm hoping to retain good comfort that the S-Tunes give but get better handling. Has anyone here on a R33 GTR personally switched from S-Tunes to something else and can give feedback? I have read reports from a guy who went from S-Tunes to Ohlins and loved the difference in both handling with still soaking up the bumps well. Having heard that feedback they will have to be the go, unless there is something locally produced in Australia that can be just as good if not better Other option is MCA Reds which always appear to get recommended. Oddly, Nismo and Ohlins have spring rates almost even, while MCA have the front almost double of the rear. Hell even if the entry level MCA Comfort-Pro's are going to be better than dated Nismo design, I could start with them. The car also does have 700hp, currently grips perfectly with no wheelspin, I was thinking to go the Ohlins as they aren't too heavy spring rates to help give some squat under power Any advice appreciated keen to hear your experiences Cheers.
  13. GFB DV+ T9360 is a re-circulation valve designed for OEM used BW turbos, while not officially advertised to fit an EFR by GFB, I have tested fits on an EFR. All bolt holes align. Plunger seal is pretty much the same diameter as the face inside the compressor housing so it seals. Piston is workable length to be able to vent when fully compressed into the BPV body. One slight issue is outer seal on compressor housing doesn't sit in factory grove but still sits on a flat surface on the compressor housing
  14. It doesn't look like they are testing each turbo to their potential. Both are tested at 25 PSI, where as they should run whatever boost is required for the specific turbo to make all it's power it can, that might effect the midrange somewhat.
