    hey im after a silver r33 gtst s2 bonnet in victoria, preferably closest to ballarat area but if i have to travel i will, im looking for one in silver with no dents so it can be put straight on with no painting needed
  3. i need to find a secondhand set to test out, i need a new bonnet cos i hit a kangaroo last night anyways
  4. and plugs are 0.8 im using
  5. oh sorry i ment the premium 95 but now does it on 98 as well, i never run on 91 unless emergency and i have octane booster in car just in case, i feel like its coil packs cos maybe it started after i put the coil pack cover back on im not sure, i never used to have it on
  6. hey my car has been doing this for a long time now, it seems to pop pop pop pop and hesitating if im taking off from a stopped position, if im gentle it doesnt do it but if i take off a bit quickly it will do it, it used to only do it with 91 octane but now does it even on 98. Its much worse on hot days, it happens alot worse on high boost but still does it but not as bad on normal boost. Could this be coilpacks? the car is an R33 GTST S2, no real mods and high boost is only 11psi and low is about 6psi

    does anyone know if having a skinnier top radiator is going yo effect anything like restrict proper coolant flow or anything and lead to overheating?

    this mackay replacement hose is alot smaller diameter, it wasnt easy to stretch it over the radiator outlet, it says its the right one but it must just be a terrible attempt at a replacement top radiator hose for an ree gtst by mackay
  9. Hey i just brought one from bursons who says its the only one listed for my car but it looks alot smaller/skinnier than the one on my car, it is a Mackay CH3195. On its sticker it has that it is for 1991-1993 rb25de but my car is a 1996 rb25det, so does anyone know if the non turbo r33 uses the same top radiator hose as a turbo one?

    the teins have always been very firm from the day i got them, i noticed it more when i put 19’s on the car

    my old tein height adjustable ones that im going to be taking off the car work fine but i think 2 of them are a bit noisy, they make a sucking in and out noise but still preform perfectly, does that mean they are not good to sell?
  12. hey i got a set of stock r33 suspension to put onto my gtst cos my wife is complaining the tein height adjustable ones are too rough. The stock ones i got for free and the fronts look ok but the rear ones have rust on the tops, it looks like they were stored outside so rain must have built up into the tops which is like a little bowl that would have held water in there nicely to rust them up, the rust was scabby and scaly and i got as much as i could off but because of the location of it its impossible to get it all off, i dont know how deep the pitting is and i worry about its structural integrity especially cos its a suspension top which i assume has lots of load on it constantly. it would be hard to try remove all of it and treat and paint it to stop any further rust cos i can only get my little finger in the channel even with a screwdriver i still carnt get to all of the rust. What do you guys think, im thinking i need a new back set or new tops

    anyone know anything about this
  14. hey i have an r33 gtst that has castor rod bushes that are cracked and leaking the silicone filling thats in them, so i have stock suspension that im putting back into the car soon cos the wife is complaining that the tein ones are too rough so while im changing the suspension i may as well do the castor arms at the same time, now i found a cheap set close to me but something doesnt look right to me about them, they are upgraded adjustable ones which i dont care about cos i would have grabbed stock ones if i found any close to me but the end of them looks offset compared to others i have seem photos of and i was wondering if they are ok and will work. i will upload 2 photos, the new shiny ones are the reference photo and the old ones are the ones i was going to buy
