    Got it, cheers

    Looking for a stock bov, in as good condition as possible. Located Sydney
  3. Cheers for your help guys, and I think I've made my decision, I'm going for the MCA Street Performance. I contacted Heasmans and asked about getting Bilstein shocks (B6) and king springs. They've quoted me $1950 for the shocks ($1331), installation ($484) and an allignment ($132). Then I would have to supply the springs (about $340 for kings) and my own strut tops as well, since my car currently has coilovers. Or I could go for the MCA Street Performance, which would be about $2100 delivered, and install these myself. From what I've read these should outperform the Bilstein/king setup, unless that is paired with the custom valving and other suspension components that are included in SKs suspension package, and maybe upgraded to Eibach springs. I didn't want to spend about the $3k that it would cost to properly do that setup so I'm going with the MCAs.
  4. I think for now I'm just going to go for the bilstein/king springs, but thanks anyway, you've given me more to think about. I have contacted Heasmans and asked about this setup to see what they recommend running it with and to get a price, but am still waiting for a reply.
  5. Alright, cheers man, I did see that the ones he had in his group buy were the Whiteline springs, but as far as I can tell now they are discontinued and Kings were the next best. I did also have a brief look at the MCA's that a lot of people recommend on here, but I'm trying not to spend too much so I was going for the cheaper option, but I was wondering how the MCA Street Essentials compare to the bilstein/kings? The fact that the bilstein/kings aren't defectable is also a bonus, so for now I am leaning towards that setup.
  6. Hey guys, I recently bought a 1998 R34 GTT Coupe, and it has come with some Tein Super Street coilovers (P/N QEN68-Z1531 at the front and QEN69-Z1531 at the rear), which just don't fit the car properly, it sits too low in the front and can't be raised any more. This means that the car scrapes on every bump in the road and even on moderate cornering. As far as I can tell, these coilovers are designed for an R33 GTR?? So I am planning on changing them out for Bilstein shocks and King springs, which I have been doing a bunch of reading about Sydneykid's group buy back in about 2006 I think. Seems like a really good street/occasional track setup for a daily driver. Just wanted to check that it's still a good setup nowadays for the money. Also, I noticed that Sydneykid said that the ones he sold were individually valved for each sale: "Yes Daniel, I have specified revalving for the Bislteins to suite the spring and bar rates I have chosen." So I'm wondering if I will need to get my Bilsteins revalved as well? Additionally, I have read on the group buy that the Bilstein shocks are height adjustable by circlips? But I'm not quite sure what this means and if it is specific to the Sydneykid group buy, or if all Bilstein shocks are height adjustable. If I am aiming for approximately the 350mm front and 340mm rear (wheel centre to guard) that is recommended in the group buy, will the Bilstein shocks and kings springs around that? Sorry for asking so many questions, any help is appreciated, cheers.

    Looking to buy a fairly stock and clean R34 GTT manual coupe. Located in Sydney, NSW, but can travel and will consider other states.
  8. Hey mate. Is this still available?
  9. Jhare413

    So does this mean I would have to get stock suspension for the blue slip if I don’t want to ruin the suspension that’s on there? Does everybody have to do this for defect clearances and such?

    Cheers man I’ll check them out
  12. I’m looking at purchasing a skyline in the near future (likely an r34 gt-t). My plan is to get the car checked over by a mechanic before purchase. Any suggestions for good RB mechanics who could check it over for me?
  13. Jhare413

    Yea for sure, definitely going to buy a fairly stock car, looking to keep this as a project car for the next couple of years at least

    Cheers for the help man, kinda figured this would be the case; but didn't know there were that many differences.
  15. Hey guys, I’m fairly new to the skyline scene, but looking to buy an r34. My plan is to eventually upgrade to a larger turbo, maybe make 400-500 hp. Is it worth paying the extra $5000? for a gtt if I am going to redo the turbo system anyway. I understand that there are other upgrades in the gtt, but I am not sure exactly what. I am not sure how much more expensive it is to turbo the gt model, compared to upgrading the turbo system in the gtt Cheers, Josh
