  1. Yep I totally agree with this! Reason I bought the skyline to begin with was my belief that if anything ever went wrong I could pick up an NA shell and use panels off that to fix my car. BUT with the prices where they are at now, I have concerns that if I binned the car it would cost me a fortune to fix. That means I want to track it less and when I do track it I would need to baby it a bit to ensure I didn't write it off, so then slowly it would just become a static piece of art in my garage and it would have no real world use anymore..... Hence I sold it to someone who wants to daily drive it everyday, it needed to be released to be wild and free
  2. Some bittersweet news. Sold my skyline today. Got an offer I couldn't refuse Am planning on getting either a F30 335i or F20 M135i to replace it. Loved this car and love the community on here. Will be very sad without it! VID-20211023-WA0002.mp4
  3. I've had MCAs reds on my last car and MCA blues on the Skyline... I wouldn't ever rate them as harsh, they can be quite comfortable if you keep them on a soft setting. Talk directly to MCA and they will recommend the best set. Lots of places in Sydney are resellers.
  4. That was 100% correct, my adaptronic I had was the older model before they had can capabilities. I mean I love the Haltech just for the IC7
  5. So got the new wideband, turned on the "auto tune" on the ecu and it was all looking good. However, I did strip a knock sensor and then started looking through the ecu. Watched a few hp academy videos and realised my ecu had a few glaring issues (such as the flex fuel sensor being disabled) Anyway I lost a bit of faith in the tune after that as there were a lot of little issues (which may have been fine, but I didn't feel comfortable anymore). Went to a new workshop, Glen at ESP was amazing, really nice bloke and I feel actually cared about getting the right result. He did swap my knock sensors to the Bosch donut type sensors, I know it's not 100% needed, but it's cheap and adds a level of insurance. Also got a clutch switch put in for flat foot, rev match, launch control etc. Car is running well and without ANY engine mods at all the car has gone from making 305kw atw at 25-20psi to now making 330kw are at 18psi... It's night and day different! Very very happy!
  6. needs phatter rims and stretched tyres Maybe some battery operated neon lights Thats awesome, i love it
  7. Not cheap at all! but hopefully the part numbers help

  10. Aww thanks man! wish i was your way now!
  11. That's interesting... although meant nothing as the flex fuel sensor in my car was disabled... I did ask them a few times why my dash would always say 85% ethanol even when i had 98 in it.... and enquired why my AFR was 8:1 when on 98... was told not to worry and its all fine... seemed very odd to me though
  12. What was interesting is the car was setup to run the same timing for e85 and 98
  13. I think if it was thing that was a bit... o that seems odd, i would be ok, but it was so many things.... just lost faith... Thanks for this nothing was in place.. which i totally understand as from what i read they can be very finicky to setup
