  1. The BOV is still plumbed back, changed that back to stock before adding the pod. I noticed last night that it behaves much better at night when the air is cooler than in the day, might sound stupid but it seemed heaps quicker than when stock. It's just in the day time that its really laggy from 0-40km/h.
  2. Who said Air Pressure Guage?? Can't find it anywhere on the page.... So Dobz..Are you saying that i can't have an atmospheric BOV??? How do other skyline owners do it? Plus i thought you have to have some sort of AFM all the time??? Confused.....
  3. How do you clean your afm?? Carby cleaner yeah but like do i open it up and spray in there? I would have thought this problem had more to do with air pressure?? Wouldn't know SFA though so any suggestions are welcome. Thanks for the replys so far guys
  4. Hey Guys I recently installed a HKS mushroom filter on my S1 R33 (Auto) and noticed that the idle is running rough. Sounds almost like its missing a bit and revs at idle range from 400-900. The power on low end (10-40km) is really shite as well, feels really laggy. This is the only mod i've done to the car, everything else is bone stock. The air filter was put on after a mate tried to get more sound out of the stock BOV. I.e. Plugged the plumb back hose and vented the BOV to atmosphere. We found that the car ran rough as guts, hunting at idle and stalling, but sounded great hahaha, so we put the BOV back to stock plumb back and just bolted on a mushroom filter. Later did some research and heard that stock BOV is always open just a little and idle was hunting due to lack of back pressure. Is this true? My assumption is that the problem will be fixed after installing an after market BOV which stays closed when not venting. Will this fix the problem? Also I haven't reset the ECU after changing to mushroom filter, maybe give that a go???? Cheers
  5. How much would it cost for postage for the boot setup to Brisbane??? Is the boot the whole setup (boxes/moulds etc) or just the speakers + amps?? Cheers Matt

  8. Associated Press (AP) 15 September 2005, 01:32 (Brisbane, Australia) EARTHQUAKE ROCKS IPSWICH A major earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale has hit Australia in the early hours of this morning, with the epicentre believed to be in the South Eastern City of Ipswich. Victims were seen wandering around aimlessly muttering, "F'kin 'ell" and "Whadda baaarst'd". The earthquake has completely decimated the area, leaving a damage bill expected to exceed more than A$3000. Several priceless collections, including mementos from the Torana Appreciation Society and the Ipswich Progress Hall, were destroyed in the quake. Three areas of historic burnt out cars were disturbed. Many locals were woken well before their welfare cheques arrived. Brisbane radio reported that hundreds of residents were confused and bewildered, still trying to come to terms with the fact that something interesting had happened in the area. One resident - Tracy Sharon Smith, a 15-year-old mother of 4 said, "It was such a shock, my little Chardonnay Mercedes came running into my bedroom crying. My youngest two, Tyler-Morgan and Levi-Storm slept through it all. I was still shaking when I was watching Jerry Springer later in the morning". The people of Ipswich are a resilient community and evidence of a full recovery can already been seen, with looting, muggings and car crime carrying on as normal. The aid response from local charities has been swift. The Red Cross has so far managed to ship 4,000 cases each of Bundy & Coke and PJ Durries to the area to help the stricken locals. Rescue workers are still searching through the rubble and have found large quantities of personal belongings,which include Centrelink booklets, Bronco tee shirts, Acca Dacca cassettes, Holden HSV bedding covers, Priceline jewellery and fine bone china from Bi-Lo. The Red Cross seeks to raise money for food and clothing, to be air-dropped as parcels for those unfortunate to be caught up in this disaster. Donations of clothing are in demand. Items most needed include baseball caps; tracksuit tops (his and hers); flannelette shirts (female); footy socks; ugg boots; and any other items usually sold in "Op" Shops. Food parcels may be harder to come by, but are needed all the same. Required foodstuffs include, Pluto Pups (Dagwood Dogs), doner kebabs, McDonalds, KFC, ice cream and cans of UDL Bourbon and Coke; Passion Pop and XXXX Bitter. Charities are also accepting cash donations through any Liquorland outlet. $0.25 buys a ball point pen for filling in compensation forms; $5.00 buys chips, sausages, gherkins, crisps and blue fizzy drinks for a family of nine; $10.00 will buy a packet of Winfield Blues 25s and a lighter to calm the nerves of those affected. Aid agencies have requested that no tents be sent into the affected suburb, as the sight of high socio-economic housing is unfair on the residents of neighbouring areas. Hope this is the right section of the forum for this.
  9. Whats wrong with a 4 door?? Could have bought the 2 door he had for the same price with less klms Four door was what i wanted, rare. And 4door_Sleeper where did you get that kit and how many $$$$????
  10. I paid $10900 for my '94 R33 4 door with 68000klms on the clock, no scratches, no dents perfect engine, just complianced. Came with a touch screen head deck too!!
  11. Hey guys As the title says i'm after a stock front bar for a S1 r33. The bar must be the stock silver colour with the dark grey lip. Like in my sig. Must be in great condition in QLD. Otherwise, I've put a few light scratches on my front bar, how much would it cost to respray this and where would be the best place in brisbane?? Cheers Matt
  12. Okie Dokie So get someone with one of those spacer pocket knife lookin things and get the spark plugs regapped. Then reset the ecu and all should run fine. Can i safely up the boost to 12psi then, seeing as that's the limit for the stock turbo? As for the other questions am i really going to notice it?? cheers P.S. Tried to change the RB20E thing but can't find where its located on my profile. I actually have a 1200kw twin turbo rb26dett in the shed but the stock r33's faster
  13. Ummm sorry, pretty new to mechanical work.....What does that mean?? does that mean get new spark plugs and get my ecu tuned?? Doesn't that cost like up to a grand?? No complaining just asking. Cheers Matt
  14. Hey guys, I've got a bogstock r33 S1. No FMIC, no xhaust, no pod......Stock as factory....rare huh? I've been reading the forums and did a few searches on the subject so its not just an off the cuff question, thought has gone in to this. Anywayz i want to purchase one of these turbotech boost controllers and up the boost to 10psi. I'm under the impression that the ECU will adapt to this so long as i don't go over 10psi. Correct me if i'm wrong there. No carbon build up / det. etc.??? Will there be any damage to anything under the hood if i install this and up the boost? Will this provide a noticably bigger difference in spool up, e.g. would it be on boost almost straight away? Will 10psi make a huge difference, i.e. put my head back in the seat when i nail it?
  15. Nope, no antenna on the front of my car, unless its really well hidden???? Is it supposed to move this antenna out of view??
