  1. In all honesty I don't know why this didn't take off. It's got all the ingredients for a great thread! I stumbled across this while looking for info on what 18"SSR Disk face (HP/MD/NR/SL) is needed to fit over my WGNC34 260RS with OEM (R33) calipers and 355mm rotors. I'll contribute to this thread when I've figured that out and decide on wheels! I'm looking at Minervas in 18" or Formula Mesh, also in 18". Meanwhile... any chance any has info on this? Cheers!
  2. That roof wing looks perfect. Did you ever find out what the name of it was, or who the manufacturer is?
  3. So, I searched "backspacing"and this came up, but somehow couldn't find it in the text... anyone know what the backspacing is (i.e. distance from wheel mounting face to coilovers) on a 2000 WGNC34 260RS (MT)? I have an R34 face so I can't (immediately) tell if it's a S1 or an S2, but I assume it's a S2. My car is about to come with 9.5J +22 with 3mm spacers (i.e. 9.5J +19), and I assume the spacers are there for backspacing rather than poke, since I only just learned that the rears don't have much space! I was told/read that 9J +15 should fit, but close. I originally wanted to run Z34 19*10.5J +23, and thought I'd need at least a 20mm spacer in the rear for that, plus some gnarly camber to fit them within the guards -- especially if I run the 255/30-19 that I intended to. But now I'm worried it might be a 25mm spacer, which would mean, basically, Overfenders... which aren't tenable. Does someone have the actual distance so I can calculate on paper before taking delivery of the car? Much appreciated!!

    Great, thanks, I guess I'll find out soon!! (And I guess I wont be getting the Nismo version since the risk/price is too high!)

    I'm surprised this thread hasn't been brought back to life earlier...

I was told that 9J +15 should fit. I originally wanted to run Z34 19*10.5J +23, but it looks like I'll need at least a 15mm spacer in the rear for that, plus some gnarly camber to fit them within the guards -- especially if I run the 255/30-19 that I intended to. Does someone have the actual distance so I can calculate on paper before taking delivery of the car? Much appreciated!!

    Just wanted to see if anyone else could confirm/deny this? If wrong, what are the differences between an R33 GTR FMIC and a WGNC34 260RS FMIC? Thanks!!!

    The only difference is the air temp sensor!?! Jeeze... that's good. So the R33 GTR I/C tabs, hoses, pipes, and fitment all line up properly in a WGNC34? Thanks!!

    Thanks! I noticed that the BNR32 and BCNR33 use the same (nismo) part number, but the R34 is different. Which will fit our WGNC34 Stag 260RSs? What's the difference between those two part numbers?

    Sorry, I re-read my post and it was terribly written. Let me take another stab: What would it take to fit an R32/33/34 GTR intercooler onto my WGNC34 260RS? I wanted to know what the differences in piping, mounting points, and space/fitment are, to assess whether or not it makes sense to buy a GTR IC to modify to fit on my Stag. It seems ARC has different part numbers for the i/c kits, so I assume there are some differences. Nismo also only makes kits for the GTRs, not the Stags. Generally, there are many more options for GTR I/C kits than there are for our 260RSs. Cheers!

    Sorry to bring an old thread back to life; anyone know what it would take for an R33 GTR (or R34 GTR) i/c to fit in a 260RS Stag? I assume the 260RS intercooler piping is different from the non-RB26 versions?
  11. Haven't been able to find a good answer (yet) so I'm reviving a dead thread -- hope that's OK! I'm taking delivery of a 2000 260RS in a couple of months, and am starting to buy parts now, especially since some of them have a month-long lead time. Does anyone have a photo (or description) of the differences between an R33 GTR intercooler and the 260RS intercooler? I imagine the tabs and piping will be different to suit the chassis, but since the car has the RB26 in it, I assume the core would be the same? How much work would it be to buy a BCNR33 kit and fit it to the WGNC34? The options for the 260RS are all thinner or smaller than their R33 equivalents, and that just doesn't sit well with me... ? It has an RB26DETT in it dammit, it better have a GTR intercooler too!! ?
  12. Hey RB26 guys! Surprisingly, I can't find many recent turbo threads. Everything seems to be from 2018 and older... Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has had experience yet with the new Tomei turbos for RB26: http://www.tomei-p.co.jp/catalogue/t550b-rb26/ In due course, I'm looking to upgrade my stock twins, and am curious how these would compare to, say, a pair of EFR 6258, which they look the most similar to. What are your recommended upgrades for a target of around 350-380 kw (500-ish hp)? Reliability and (daily) drivability are my priorities, plus with very limited access to local welders (i.e. no one here does quality custom work like you can find in oz/nz or the US), it has to be fairly bolt-on so I can actually do it myself. I intend to keep stock internals, and will do fuel upgrades with the turbo, and probably a stand alone ECU as well. E85 not an option. intake/exhaust a given. Cheers!!
  13. Good stuff guys. I was looking for calipers only (to use with an even bigger, 350mm disc) but have since abandoned that route... thanks though!!
  14. Thanks guys! FWIW I've found 2 references on yahoo japan auctions of rear BNR34 discs -- not specified as V-spec discs -- that were 322mm in diameter. That doesn't mean that the sellers didn't "forget" to include the word vspec, but it's 2 data points. But, I'm pretty sure both the 300 and 322 rears were both vented rears... the R32's 296s were probably vented, too... So, the search continues...
  15. Back from the dead! Can anyone tell me if late model R34 NON-V-Specs also had 322mm rear rotors, or were the 322s only on V-specs? Thanks!!
