  1. Both sides of the banjo pipe are M12x1.0 on the BNR32 rack
  2. Here, have a better picture. Got it on my bench right now (GTR model, just assume it's the same). I'll look at it tomorrow and get back with thread/pitch for the rack-side of the banjo pipe
  3. Found this interesting to watch, maybe should be put in a sticky thread?

    Can't edit the original post, oh well. Shipping If this succeeds, shipping to European customers will get handled by Wavetracs European distributor. If there is interest from people in other areas, I'm certain they will be able to solve that too. (added bonus, I don't have to pay for all 25 units and be a middle man) Delivery time Expected 120 days / 3 months after enough people have shown interest to warrant a production run. Durability & Warranty They have customers running over 1000hp through their smallest diffs like the EVO, Civic, and GTR front with no problem, and those have the smallest internals. This one is the next size up. Lifetime Transferable Warranty. Price Expected to be the same as their other offerings, USD $1395 Regards Jonas

    I've been in touch with Wavetrac about a front differential for RB engines. All reviews I've seen on the internet have been positive about it, for those of you who don't know what makes it special, take some time and read on their page. Wavetrac® Differential - A torque biasing differential with a difference TD,DR It's a helical differential combined with friction discs, if you lift the inner wheel it will still send power to the other without all the issues of running a mechanical LSD in the front. They need 25 pre-orders to make it happen, I'm one so that means we need 24 more. Will get back with more details regarding price, warranty, durability and if they will be able to handle individual shipping. Excuse me if this is in the wrong forum section. Regards Jonas
  6. I have to wait for the 8474 release now, no big deal since I'm so slow with the rest of the progress..🙄

    Bumping this thread, trying to get out the hub out from the knuckle after removing the entire assembly from the car... I clamped the knuckle to a piece of wood, stood on it and went at it with my sliding hammer as hard as I could. Nothing besides me and the entire knuckle/wood thingy moved a single mm. Just want to verify, the snap-rings are only there to hold the bearing, right? Any options besides more heat, more lube and more force?
  8. MrStabby, if you look at the next page you see where/how to measure "point 5" Inner gear and housing flange clearance, 0.045·0.091
  9. My 32, not a single yet but should be enough to show your painter since it's atleast a 26 (Don't worry, all bare aluminum is bead blasted now to look the same. Engine out and sorting the rest of the ugly bits too)

    Teflon hoses and as straight and short as possible aluminum pipe. Fuelab 41402 pump, dont know what gallons they used in the attached chart, but it should suffice any day of the week 🤓 (got a vision/goal of everything being able to handle 500 awkw on E85) My rough calculation told me I would end up with a 3 psi drop, but anything below 5 feels acceptable. Someone should sticky this thread

    Wow! Thats awesome information, tried to guestimate/calculate the same thing when I refreshed my fuel system, but it ended up a bit low compared to the real numbers you found! Attached image is of stock fuelrail inlet/outlet vs AN8 fitting... Notice the sharp and narrow left connection? Got myself some AN8 lines in the end, should be enough for me and my 530 LPH pump
  12. Fairly similar from what I can find, not close enough to stop it from lashing back and forth. They state that it's normal, but they didn't want to give any recommended clearance or warranties, "If it works, it works, we got out money" is how I read their reply. Old pump didn't break, but were visibly worn where it's reported to break. Since I'ts an engine out job, and the pump had bits of bearing in the cogs, I wanted a solid replacement to never have to think about it again. Anyways, everyone who has read the thread seems to be ok with Reimax gears and the, IMHO, massive clearance. Keep an eye out for it at a bargain price on ebay ;)
  13. Not stock, no, but the N1 pump that's been in the last 8000 Km. N1 got somewhere just over 0.30mm but it still showing signs of wear on the edge where it usually breaks. I want to feel "safe" pushing the engine, and since the pump had to be replaced or upgraded, I thought "better safe than sorry" and bought the salespitch. The gear might be up to the task, but it just seems too much. So, for all you who prefer thou to mm, reimax: ~18 thou and N1 ~12 thou.
  14. Shameless bump to see if it's possible to start the discussion. Got a reply today where they claim this is as intended, would you feel ok with this much play?
  15. Since their answer regarding my issue has taken over a week, I feel that a heads up regarding reimax oil pump gear clearance is justified. Found some old threads with this issue, then some newer ones stating that it's fine, and went for the "cheap" solution. This is the fitment of the uprated oil pump (over 0.45mm, got a 0.05 feeler gauge blade stacked beneath) on a brand new crank. Let me know what your experience has been with Reimax or similar solutions! Now, I'm waiting for a spline drive kit.. Don't do the same mistake as I did, the expensive solution will just cost even more (I lost oil pressure which led to bearing failure, and the crank needed a lot of work to be ok again. Someone, at some time, fitted a narrow nose crank in my late -93 R32. The oil pump chewed some small pieces of the bearing so it too had to be replaced or repaired.)
