Always lurked SAU but never made an account. I am originally from Launceston Tasmania but live in Townsville for work. I really dislike the way that everything has gone to facebook groups as a replacement for forums (RIP CalaisTurbo.com) so I thought I might try to be active even if futile.
Previous list of cars I have owned
1991 Camry Sedan (Stolen and burnt out)
1999 MX5 NB8A (sitting in Tassie waiting for a turbo build)
1987 R31 Skyline Ti Turbo (Sold)
1993 MX5 NA6 (Sold)
2005 Ford Falcon BA SR (Sold)
2008 VE SSV Ute (My daily in Townsville)
199x EK Civic Sedan (Sold)
1987 R31 Skyline Ti Turbo (bought it back)
I recently bought my R31 Skyline Ti that's turboed making around 300whp. It has been in Tassie for a while and has had a lot of owners and history. I had sold it as I lived in Victoria at the time and didn't have the time to fix the sloppy RB20 box in it along with various other small things. It came up for sale for close to what I sold it for with nearly everything fixed up. I am hoping someone on here knows the original owner(s) as having some photos/info of it would be really cool. My plans with it is to replace the 3582 with a 3076, plumb up the screamer, make it more streetable and less of a defect magnet (take out the extended LCA's, plumb up the screamer pipe, get a radio and heater in it).
Because of covid I won't be able to drive it for a while but a good friend of mine is working on it down in tassie for me so any recommendations for parts/mods for it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading this and I look forward to participating in SAU!
