    Have you checked/reset ign timing
  3. OP are you using stock upper control/camber arms or adjustable? i think an exact length isn't commonly posted because as GTSboy says, it's relevant to the individual setup. It's prob 2 years back since i did mine - numbers are written down somewhere in the garage but to quote numbers through a foggy haze of memory, i think i measured my traction rod at 218mm stock length bolt to bolt, and ended up at maybe 223mm? The point was though, the 'best' length in my testing, was changing it by the same ratio as you change the camber arm to reduce camber once the vehicle is lowered (my rear camber is -1.75 deg). I would imagine Nissan spent a fair amount of time to minimize bump steer when calculating the suspension geometry so it would be no surprise that maintaining the same relative lengths on the arms would give the best results, to approximately maintain Nissan's geometry.

    Can't wait to see photos of their gear fitted ^
  5. mein gott...if coolant coming somewhere out that it shouldn't from a contained system isn't a leak, then I don't know what is. ohhkayyy mang, all the best with it, cyka blyat and all that.
  6. so you know coolant runs thru intake manifold right; so the gasket may not be sealing one of the coolant passages.
  7. Do you have the workshop manual? There's links online to download, or pm me yr email, will send u a pdf copy
  8. And i'd start with intake manifold gasket. Le gaske de manifold, sacre bleu!! Possibly. I don't speak french. But i do feel confident on the leak source.

    Well i only shop at Koya supermarkets so i am a little biased, but man their pasta range is incredible and delicious. Plus i just signed a 12 month contract with Koya Power and Gas, so of course i want them to stay in business.

    and back on the original thread title " Are Koya A Good Brand Of Wheel? " for the price, yes, nothing wrong with them. First set I got was fine, just the offset wasn't great, because I didn't request anything specifically. 2nd set I gave a specific offset and size, and got exactly what I wanted.

    but you had previously said in your submission to the forum> " I did not tell them what off-set I wanted other them tell them about the make model and year of the car - counted on them to do the research to know what off-set would fit or ask me for any other information if needed" so Adz is correct is what he has said - you only told them what car you have, no further information. That is in your own words. As you had also said " That's the power of the internet, nothing is too old.". What you say, is recorded for future reference. Your ego is unbelievable; determined in your own mind ' it's all their fault". You state " I don't feel I have to share what Car I drive or what offset the wheels had in this forum " .. I think that as you've never actually said, what car you have, and what size you asked for, that you do actually know you've fkd up, but can't admit it to yourself. Furthermore as per Australian Consumer law " a product must be reasonably fit for any purpose specified by the customer " . You're the customer. You didn't specify. I'll say it again, you didn't specify. One more time, You didn't specify. What there a problem with the product itself? Poor quality, cracked/damaged, missing parts, incorrect color? There wasn't, otherwise you would have disclosed this. As someone experienced in court/tribunal matters, I really do think you should take it to VCAT...because you are going to get ripped to shreds, and be up for tribunal costs; possibly a claim of defamation from Koya as well. Especially as you have publicly acknowledged " With hindsight, I should have taken measurements and told them what offset I wanted.". I must advise, I have contacted Koya warning them of your comments and your claim of proceeding to VCAT, and have offered to represent them in the matter free of charge, as I deal with these sort of ludicrous claims regularly in my occupation. They replied thanking me but obviously have their own legal department to attend to such matters. Do yourself a favour - look in the mirror, acknowledge your error and forgive yourself for it, sell the wheels on gumtree and buy a new set specifying exactly what you're after , following your having done the necessary research to ensure you get exactly what you have requested.

    Thanks gtsb
  13. good day old chums so, if like me, you're running a few accessories like EBC, datalogger, knocklight, AFC, they will need tapping into signals like rpm and throttle, etc, off the ecu. Query is, if you run multiple taps into the ecu's rpm wire for example, does the signal strength weaken as it's run off to multiple sources, or will the ecu wire and all associated devices get a full strength signal? thank u
  14. I believe transmax Z is obsolete. ..and an auto trans fluid, not a p/s fluid.
