  1. After looking more into the current market and prices, I'm going to be dropping the price down to $22,000 The original price of $24,500 probably was a bit outside of what they seem to be currently going for. Open to offers, just not swaps.
  2. This car represents great value at $24,500. I'm not looking for swaps or time wasters. Contact: 0408257613 I've moved onto different hobbies and the car rarely gets driven, as you can see by the amount of KM I have put onto it since importing. Located Canberra, currently registered however will need to go over pits for the name change. I have the stock exhaust to help with this. YEAR: 2000 MODEL: SERIES 2 COLOUR: Pearl White (rare) KM: 138,000KM (Imported with 97,000) INFO: I'm the first and only Australian owner, the car was imported through Iron Chef Imports in 2013, with only 97,000km, Grade 4B. Stock sleeper look, nothing flash in the engine bay. Regularly serviced by Import Parts and Mechanical Canberra. Unfortunately, no service log book as originally the servicing was done by myself and mechanic friend. TUNE: Full flex tune thanks to DVS Tuning Newcastle E85 power output: 287rwkw Pump 98 power output: 255rwkw Boost 20PSI and tapers to 16PSI HEART: Adaptronic ECU Manifold air temp sensor (nice and safe) MAP sensor tuned (nice and safe) Hypergear ART45SAT turbo Zeiotronix flex fuel gauge Flex sensor NPC HD Organic Clutch (rated to 350rwkw) FUEL SYSTEM: Walbro 255 E85 fuel pump 1000cc E85 rated Bosch injectors Aeroflow micron fuel filter (suited to E85) Splitfire coilpacks EXHAUST/INTAKE/COOLING: 3inch, with mufflers and high flow cat Blitz return flow intercooler (legal no holes cut) Apexi Power Intake Panel Filter Turbosmart Kompact Plumb Back Blow Off Valve Thick Alloy Radiator WHEELS/SUSPENSION: Varrstoen ES2 rims (very nice stance) Federal 595 tyres Rear MCA blue coilovers (brand new set ready to go in the front) Front HKS coilovers OTHER: Xenon headlights (expensive and rare) Aftermarket front bar with air vents Imobaliser and alarm system DAMAGE etc: Few scratches and the classic gravel chips on the front bar Dint on the bonnet as seen in the picture, not substantial. Rims have gutter rash Tyres are worn and should be replaced Classic wear on the side of drivers seat as seen in the picture Wear on the gear shifter Timing belt is whiny sometimes, however was replaced at 100,000km EXTRAS NOT INSTALLED - you can have these with the sale: Original series 2 front bar Original stock exhaust Original reo bar Original intercooler Front strut brace New magnaflow muffler Oil temp, oil pressure and water temp sensors/gauges HID kit (will perfectly compliment the Xenon headlights) Wideband 02 sensor (will perfectly compliment the tune)
  3. Hey, yeah timing belt was done and the noise appeared around the same time
  4. Cars just been sitting around and being driven every now and then. Haven't put aside the time to pull things apart or anything yet. When I get the motivation then I will
  5. Hey mate, thanks for the info. I'm actually running just a genuine timing belt. Someone actually presumed the same thing when they heard the noise so maybe it is a touch too tight and makes it sound like the gates do. I purposely didn't get a gates because I saw so many posts about them being loud.
  6. Good on you dude! Life changes are way easier than a diet. 10kg is a great achievement!
  7. Sorry dude, quit a couple of years ago. That place went downhill quickly as soon as TPG purchased it.
  8. From all the threads I have read, it seems return flow is not ideal for trying to get past 250rwkw on 98. They just aren't efficient enough. Plenty of people have made more power but it's normally with bigger turbos and better setups. Tuner didn't mention anything about high IAT or timing issues on mine, it seemed though to have pressure drop across the intercooler. Post intercooler it would hit 20psi and bleed down to 16psi, pre intercooler it would hit 20psi and hold around 19psi. Enjoy the 250rwkw though and if you feel like chasing down the issue then do that once the 250 gets boring, that's what I'm doing
  9. Trader prefix is a great idea, I don't think anyone minds them posting in the FS/WTB section. As long as it's distinguishable and they can't spam shit. Eg. One trader just dumps a massive number of posts for every item they are selling. Another idea is giving them maybe a gold prefix for items that are on-sale but give them a set number of these per month or something. Also have them agree they can only use it when the item is actually on-sale. I think also having the Wanted To Buy down the bottom of that list won't fix your issue. People are going to see the first few options, maybe see the traders but then won't make it all the way to the bottom to see the "wanted to buy"
  10. Currently have a weird grinding noise between 1000-2000rpm coming from the front of the engine around the CAS/Cylinder 1 Going to try get the CAS off over the next few days and work out if that's what's causing it. Video of the grinding noise if anyone is interested in hearing it. The video is just there for the sound, not for the actual footage. Had a few people comment on it being potato footage, the intent was just to get the noise not footage of the front of a normal RB25neo... Also have a loud fuel pump, so might pull that out and try cut a bit off the bracket and install another clamp on there. Hopefully that will stop the buzzing that it currently has.
  11. RESULTS & WOES Wasn't long before the car was finished and the results came back. Gotta say that I was happy but at the same time a little sad. The decision to go return flow was detrimental to the power and ability to hold boost. The car wasn't able to hold the 20psi throughout the rev range and therefor made power below what was expected of this turbo. However I haven't had to cut a hole in my battery tray so that's a bonus. Jez explained that with a better cooler he's pretty confident that I would see higher results and probably crack the 300rwkw mark. The car got driven home by my brother in law and after a slight hiccup with a misfire caused by a coilpack plug coming loose, it was back to me. I got to drive it for around 45min before going to pickup a mate and having the car drive like a slug. It started to not build boost and just wouldn't go anywhere when you put your foot down. Jez suspected a fuel issue and so I pulled the fuel pump out and found the hose kinked, should have replaced it but I pulled it off and fixed it up. Put the same hose back on and clamped it with a second clamp just in case. Pic of the kink: Anyways long story short, the car stopped running altogether, after swapping out coils for splitfires and doing a few other tests. I decided to bite the bullet and just get it towed back to Jez. He chucked a fuel pressure gauge on it and found it to have no pressure. It seems the car went from hardly building fuel pressure to just not making pressure at all. Jez pulled the fuel pump out and found what had happened to the hose I had straightened out. Hose was completely destroyed, I was banging my head because I probably should have checked it a second time. But after checking the first time, it just didn't come to my mind to check it again once the car stopped working altogether. Got replaced with some new different type of hose and did a road trip up the following weekend and picked it back up. We are now pretty much caught up to today's date. So the next few updates will be me chasing down some engine noises that I currently have and also installing a newly purchase MTX-L Wideband O2 sensor.
