  1. Heat & lines? Well I disagree, I can vouch that the oil drain was a nightmare to run in an EFR7670 w/ 6 boost manifold , required some custom welding of a drain but aside from that, there is absolutely NO issues with heat. The big rear EFR housing keeps the whole setup only mildly sunkissed after a good belting, as opposed to scorching hot like other turbos !!! I couldn't really care about having LOTS of room, because do you care about that when you're getting whoosh noises from 2000rpm EFR response? EFR's are the George foreman of turbos and nothing else comes close!!!! Sure there's not that much space but if you want to be the big daddy you need a big daddy turbo. On the other hand, put your hand on a small housing Garrett after some punchy driving and you'll get third degree burns.
  2. Martin, I think your understanding of anything Nissan RB related is minimal. Sure , you build carbon bits, but you are yet to proove you can build a RB big spec package. There's a 2500hp 3.2L floating around here in sydney and it doesn't run a block brace, oh and it has a cast factory inlet plenum, but heck, the internet says thats wrong and companies say "you need a block brace, you need a plenum!!!". Well, I think there are some things to spend on and some things not to. So if I like a crank trigger better than other options, its because I know the right people who have been there done that.
  3. I really disagree that companys need to constantly revise a product like a block brace, a crank trigger or anything of that nature. Honestly, if they do the maths & R&D they get it right. What I don't agree with is shitloads of revisions and using customers as Guinea cops. Is AP Racing a big hitter in brakes , not really dude. Brembo/Alcon are the big hitters and I don't see them getting it wrong. AP is just a more cost effective approach than their big brother Brembo. But again, these are two completely different types of parts we are talking about here. Sorry, but I have no sympathy for companys that make mistakes and disguise it as revisions. In the building game, one mistake can cost a fortune to fix and we are liable to fix it, whereas aftermarket parts manufacturers in the car game DO NOT HAVE ANY responsibility. I've been in two cars now where Gktech suspension arms have failed with no warning! Does that happen with my Ikeya Formula arms, NO!!! There needs to be more comments like mine because everyone on the internets holds their tongue if theyve made bad decisions or has used a bad product. Sure you like to support Aus companys, nothing wrong with that, but I don't support companys that claim "bolt on", but then later make the customers do the maths or the R&D!! Sure the Japs are a bit backwards in the product development but I've never bought ANYTHING from the big names in Japan that doesn't fit 100%.
  4. Let's just say - I have seen a companies block brace (not naming names here) that required redrilling, modifying, planeing etc to actually work. Sorry, but that's just not on ay, any block brace should be damn near spot on. Also, crank triggers, none of them are perfect, but do they beat the OEM CAS, absolutely!! The cam part of the Kulig is not the best hence why my trigger setup is modified to optimise a small potential 'weak link'. Would I use P R products for my cars, no, have i been recommended them, no. That's enough for me, you don't see big hitters like HKS/JUN/Supertech/Kelford/CP Pistons/ Manly Rods etc etc adding constant revisions to their products. I'm not a guinea pig.
  5. Kulig is ran on the 1000hp+ TRP / Matouuks builds My Kulig trigger has been modified by TRP also. Platinum racing products, no thanks. Some products don't need marketing, others need heaps. Enough said lol. No issue with Ross though, decent kit but again the big boys run Kulig
  6. I don't see why you're acting so defensive? It's a very important aspect and insurance for his build.. Honestly, no wonder no one helps on SAU because it seems the policy here is to say "OH NOT NEEDED". Well, it is required before tuning to make sure he doesn't slugged twice. I was just letting him know in case no one else has. A Kulig trigger setup including sensors is $2,200 installed. So it's hardly more expensive than a set of coilovers.
  7. Looking good mate!! But Why aren't you running a crank trigger setup? Standard NISSAN cas needs to be thrown in bin
  8. and years ago when I said GT-Rs will be six figure cars everyone treated me like a looney, that's whats LOL. now theyre a half a million dollar car simple it will keep going up there is not enough available to satisfy world demand and they are the most iconic street race car in world
  9. I think leaving the Nismo 3 gauges in will keep everything looking nice & OEM "plus". I personally wouldn't remove them for a fancy headunit. Plus, who needs a tricked out audio deck when you have the RB note to enjoy? Also, last thing you need is some deadbeat breaking into the car to cash in a headunit.
  10. I think the Samsonas has the best looking shifter and it’s close to the steering wheel a Motorsport dream
  11. Now you know why I’m avoiding circuit work unless something is dry sumped it’s SO not worth the damage to the motor, why risk big dollars for a few mins of fun roll racing and street duties is good enough for the motor to last a LONG time
  12. Yes Brett is on my hit list at roll racing that's for sure, he'll never live it down when i fly past him Brett, what made you choose PPG over Samsonas, & are you upgrading to a larger input shaft?
  13. For starters, you don't have a 9 second GT-R, nor do you have a dyno sheet....lol I think it should be an SAU roll racing day, the reality is it's much more gentle on the car....than the typical SAU circuit day. With our vehicles becoming collectible anyone belting them on a track is out of their mind tbh.
  14. Please, if you have any doubts let’s line up player I’m yet to see any videos of your car light it up, come step to the plate ; )
  15. What I find hilarious is that, everyones prediction was I'd blow the box....and funnily enough, the box is still absolutely great. I think my cognisance relating to mechanical sympathy does play a part in the fact NOTHING on my cars goes wrong. Meanwhile, everyone else is blowing 6 speeds and throwing rocker arms, I'm calling it that more "they don't know how to drive".
