    Yeh the box has been overhauled once before (5 years ago). I was thinking of doing a fluid change but didnt think that will make a difference to it popping out of gear off boost. I may have an opportunity to get a gearbox (no transferase or shifter which I dont need) for cheap. Then when this one is out I can rebuild with stronger.
  2. The 100mm is the competition series rated to 1500hp isnt it? The 76mm is rated for 950hp which I will never surpass. That would be enough wouldnt it?
  3. I am in the process of gathering some new upgraded parts and then going for a retune. So i want to replace the stock cooler because I will be pushing well over 400kw and I have decided to go with a 76mm Plazmamam intercooler. Can I install it without a retune? I know I will not get great benefit but its an easy job and will look much nicer than the stock 26 year old one. Just because I am not tuning it for another 3 months or so. But you know everyone wants there car to look nice :). Thanks.

    Hey guys - So I had issues with my gearbox coming out of 4th gear off throttle. My mechanic looked at the joint from the shitter into the gearbox and we replaced it anyway but no change. Then my tuner actually took it apart as he noticed the boot at the bottom of the shifter was gone so that made these quiet again and also stopped some fluid spilling over the top. He also noticed that the shifter had some parts install wrong and fixed this (grrrr at my mechanic). This fixed the 4th gear pop out issue but then I was driving along and off throttle again and 5th gear popped out which it has NEVER done. Now im just confused as to why its changed from 4th to 5th with a correctly installed shifter. Any ideas?

    I have been weighing up what to do with my gearbox in my 32 as well. Its either spend $7000AUD+install on a PPG Helical 5speed dog set and be done with it. Or OS Gearset (as you say mixed reviews) for about $3100 plus shipping and wait time+install Or Rebuild it again for another $2000 and just see how long it lasts this time. As for 6spd only real options that i know of are Sequential or R34 Getrag but they are way to costly for me.

    That is real interesting. Please post before and after results. I might talk to a well respected Turbo builder in NZ and see if he ca do similar before I go for a tune.

    Yeh I am formulating a plan to switch to E85 on my -5's. Bet these are far to laggy for a street driven GTR.

    I wonder how they would go on a highly modified 2.6L in place of my -5's. Probably far to laggy.

    Yeh I got pod filters they sound the same :). I could get the atmosphere vent kit and remove the all the recirc system as I run MAP sensor but didnt see the need to create a lot of noise.

    Installed. Work mint and I think I may have solved my issue. Will find out back at the strip this season

    Yeh I have talked to them its all sorted apparently and on the way.

    Found the adapter and the GFB kit and ordered. Cheers. Hope this fixes the leak I can hear on boost haha.

    Real good to know ill look into it. Thanks for that - that would work perfect and easy to fit.

    Yeh good advice. Spoke to my tuner he said the stock ones can some times lift causing a leak. Also said the type r ones the o ring and blow out and also not seal. Tial seems to be the way to go but would need some fab work done and to remove the recirc system since I am on MAP and not AFM's. Sweet think I have my solution sorted.

    I seem to have sprung a leak. Gas mileage has gone down and I seem to hear a leak underload. When I got it tuned (401kw) I remember the tuner had issues with my BOV's and he resolved it but told me that they could cause issues. So if I order a Greddy Type R BOV (one big one) how do I install it? I should need to retune it or anything like that? Thanks Again.
