  1. Looking for a white face Nismo cluster for the BNR34. Not interested in black, already have one. Open to new or used condition, or swaps, white for black. Will pay postage from anywhere. Not looking for cracky prices. If you're real, DM me.
  2. SAU has died in the a$$ with the advent of Facebook. All the GTR pages there are thriving. Heaps of GTRs owners from all over Aus connecting and heaps of parts going round..a tonne of experience too and quick replies. There's some old threads here full of helpful info but unfortunately as Skylines have aged and mostly disappeared so has SAU....I occasionally check the 'for sale' threads here but even they're dead.
  3. Front and rear seats from 2002 R34 GTR V spec II. Passenger and rear seats in immaculate condition. No signs of wear. Drivers seat has usual bolster wear and small blemish in fabric (see photos). Will not separate front and rears, selling as a whole set. Price is in line (and lower even) with most recent eBay and Yahoo Auction Japan prices so please no low balls. Price is a firm $10k for the whole set. Rare to come by so if you've been waiting for a set don't miss out. Worldwide shipping can be organised at buyer's expense.
  4. https://m.facebook.com/story/graphql_permalink/?graphql_id=UzpfSTEwMDAwNTI2ODMzMjUwMTpWSzoxNzI3NjcxNDg3Mzg1Mzk2 Interesting read
  5. Just to confirm being on Skylines Australia, you are asking $2300 AUD?
  6. Wouldn't it be the other way around? Ie. Wouldn't Snap on want that leakage bound to be conservative to avoid the scenario where an engine is actually f****d and the guage implies it's in good condition? Regardless, it's not just Snap on. All the guages I've seen have the same bound for low leakage being 40%.
  7. Ok cheers. Also with the various ranges for acceptable leakage often being quoted at <10%, <20% , <30%, why then do all the leak down guages show it being "low" and in the 'green' under 40%? See pic attached for reference
  8. Big ring gaps would cause low compression on a comp test but this particular engine is reading 162-170 psi across all cylinders.
  9. I have heard from a reputable GTR workshop that it can though I did not get the chance to ask them why ?
  10. I've heard and read various things regarding what is and isn't normal ranges for leak-down tests. Some sources say anything over 10% requires attention, others say over 30% is catastrophic and in need of rebuild, yet the tools used to perform such tests often show that 10-40% leak-down is considered 'low'. On the flipside, I have also heard that high duration camshafts and other variables can cause healthy engines to give readings of 30%+. In this particular instance also, a compression test showed nothing of concern and all cylinders were within 8psi of each other. 1. What else can cause leak-down test results to be 'high' in a healthy engine? 2. Can truly healthy engines produce high leak-down test results? 3. If high-duration camshafts can be the cause of high leak-down results, why do they cause this? 4. Are leak-down tests reliable measures of engine health for moderately worked engines? i.e. are the definitions of high and low results only relevant for standard cars? Any definitive insight (rather than speculation) would be much appreciated.
  11. If only these were a bit wider and a square set I'd take them off you!
