    https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/l468560753 Sold recently for around $35 aud which would be closer to $80 shipped. just keep an eye on yahoo auctions i usually use the key term BNR32, BCNR33 or BNR34 as you will get all sorts of goodies related to those chassis numbers pop up.
  4. Good info, thanks for posting, we rarely get a chance to look at back to back data.

    Mark @ MRC Dyno and Performance in Castle Hill have inspected 5 cars for me in the past, very thorough, and has found issues that other reputable mechanics had missed. When requesting an inspection, ask for a hoist check-over, compression test and a health check power run on the dyno (to see for leaks, air flow consistency, ignition breakdown and issues at full throttle, the total cost is about $200 which is extremely comprehensive. If it helps breaks the ice tell him Daniel with the Black R34 GTR forwarded his details to you.
  6. Bowdens have a nice range of low-cure time sprays available which make application and buffing very easy, my pref is boss gloss as i can use it on my drying towel while i drying the car without having to buff off any residue all the other solutions require a buff-off stage after applying. glazes(afterglow) detailers/1-step drying aids (boss gloss) waxes (lazy wax) sealants (fully slick)

    From memory it their rate was $110/hr, i supplied most of my own fluids so i think all up it was approx 6-7hrs labour. Belts and water pump were done a few mths prior.

    What part of Sydney are you in? Just had the same done for my R34 by Mark at MRC Performance & Dyno in Castle Hill, very knowledgeable with all things RB, also the best troubleshooter i've been to, he's solved many issues other repuatable workshops either caused or hadn't picked up on. They offer a really good health-check / inspection which includes a quick run on the dyno to make sure all is in order also, mention this as it's really worth the $120 odd dollars so you know what you're up against for future mods etc. If it helps break the ice, mention Daniel with the black R34 GTR suggested you call. https://www.facebook.com/MRCDynoServices
  9. Wrapping the headlights is a genius idea, spotless carpet and factory looking radio are fantastic.

    Fantastic to hear, glad to hear it is on the road being driven.

    Awesome, good to hear Mark, i totally agree with you on that simple layout is best as i get older, more fun at less speed with less to go wrong.
  12. I got my twins rebuilt and balanced at Precision Turbochargers in Wetherill Park, NSW - https://precisionturbos.com.au/. Replacing 1 faulty turbo and replacing it with another 'similar' turbo would cause headaches down the track. 1. GT-SS and 2859-9s are slightly different in spec and will blow differently. 2. You leave yourself open with the other GT-SS being prone to failure, thus setting you up for another remove and replace bill which is the costly part of a low-mount twin configuration 3. for the price of 1 new, you could refurbish both GT-SS', which i still think is the most reliable and cost effective option. While you're replacing you could opt to replace the water & oil lines with a supertec braided kit over the hardlines which are prone to threading upon removal - https://www.facebook.com/supertecracing/posts/1753715698048181

    Keen to hear your thoughts on the 86, coming from the STI, by the looks you got the limited ed. ver with the brembos, sachs and updated diff? Really liking these at the moment, just finding it hard to find $30K from the back of the sofa.
  14. Was in the same circumstance last year. I decided to remove ($750), refurbish ($1500) and refit ($750) my twins. To build a single set up (turbo, manifold, wastegate, fabricated IC piping, dump-pipe, exhaust, tune) you'd be lucky to have change from $15,000. There are obvious benefits, but it is an exercise on the wallet. If you are looking to stay with your current set-up, rebuild the turbos rather than simply replace them with a second hand kit, this is a much surer way to ensure they won't fail again. Used turbos hate coming off a car and sitting on a shelf, no matter the mileage.
  15. Not saying they are gospel by any means, but the motiveDVD GT-R just went through this exact query. They decided to keep to the stock rev limit to preserve of the stock head, stock girdle plate and stock crank. Pt.2 of 2
