  1. yes your correct with the way Nissan codes blocks, just never even heard of a 5L3.
  2. How about you check your actual engine number ? You know on the drivers side towards the front, it will start with RB something. Rusty nuts sounds like he's right as I've never heard of an 5L3 block. There is a 5L7 stagea block that appears to be a 25 though.
  3. What time are you cracking now with the PPG sequential ? How much was just the box upgrade ? My quote from PPG direct was $23.5 k for them to do the box. Sound close ? Really wanted a sequential but changed my mind as the car is still more street than race.
  4. Cool man, thanks. Let's set what I turn up. 1995 BCNR33 in 2003 had 62000km, currently 81500km in 2019. 10/1989 BNR32 had 81000km in 2007, currently 91500km in 2019. I recon 33 will be legit, but 32 might be 50/50. Interesting indeed.
  5. cool, because if I grenade the box SAU will be the first to hear about it. I think I went out on a limb because I've had the Trust / Quaife 6 speed dog three times and had my heart set on a PPG. The Trust 6 speed is a wicked box, I just think the gearset gears are made from not so great material compared to PPG or PAR. Out of the the 3 Trusts I completely smashed one on 3rd, but that might have been me with a 3rd to 4th gear staging burnout on MT ET streets before I'd hit the staging water ( dry sticky burnout). Other difference I've noticed is the box changes better than the Trust. I think it is because the teeth on the dog rings are further apart, giving more time to engage gear in comparison. 6 dog teeth compared to like 8 or 9, and chunkier teeth too. I really hope I can report in say a years time and say the PAR engineering was the right choice. All up we are talking about a $12k gearbox for the PAR. The PPG by comparison was going to be $15.5k, so not a lot in it when you're talking $10000 plus box. Almost in sequential territory but I was set on the combo I have, which PPG couldn't do. Fingers crossed 😊 By the way its Haysam (Sam) Chalak, the PAR engineering gearset machinist. Not to be confused with Sam Charlick in SA from Neat Gearboxes, the assembler / engineer.
  6. I suppose so, I'm probably one of them too 😏 Drag racing you can run anything, its all the other stupid ANDRA rules. Aren't there guys is Perth running GTRs with sequentials for circuit ? Obviously sequentials are the box of choice for time attack too. Are they allowed in Tarmac rallies ?
  7. I was referring to the OS Giken OS-88 sequential and the PPG GTR sequential. They are race transmissions. Who buys one of these without competition in mind to some degree and Who would buy one for a dedicated street only car ?
  8. Where are you getting the checks done ? I wouldn't mind doing it on my own GTRs to have the paperwork. I did buy them a long tome ago though, so I dont know if anything will come up. Bought my 33 in 2003 and my 32 in 2007.
  9. He is asking about PAR engineering, not PPG. Pfitzner is fairly well documented as there is a lot more in existence. Dog engagement over synchro you mean, as straight or helical cut gears have nothing to do with clutchless shifting, and is essentially the reason you get a dog box. You go straight cut gears as the load on the gear tooth is even, as opposed to helical which causes a thrust / side load effect. The more torque you have the more this becomes a problem, which is why I'm very surprised the OS-88 and PPG sequentials are helical, and the main reason I have not purchased one. If I want a sequential it would most certainly be a Holinger.
  10. A few shots of the box. Has a modified 10 plate transfer behind it with an ATS triple plate clutch.
  11. I don't know about the synchro set (I use OS giken in my 33), but I have just had one PAR dog box done for my Nitto 2.8 R32 GTR, and they definitely have come along way since Gerard was involved with the business (is no more). The PAR synchro set is still generally more expensive than an OS giken. As far as I can tell after calling, it's just Haysam Chalak doing all the machining now by himself, and the gearsets are every bit as good as the PPG, really good quality. Talk to Sam at Neat gearboxes in Adelaide about them, he actually swung me away from the PPG in favour of the PAR and completed my gearbox. This is the straight cut dog box 1st to 4th with the synchro 5th. Has updated 28.5mm 26 tooth GM spline input shaft, billet 1-2 and 3-4 selector forks, OS Giken centre plate and the.most important part, the billet shifter barrel interlock. This interlock is a must as with the dog box, using the standard sintered interlock with dog engagement it will eventually fracture and select more than one gear at the same time, causing catastrophic gearset destruction. PAR is the only ones who do this interlock for the 5 speed H patterns, PPG uses stock interlock and after talking with Neat gearbox and CRD is the number one reason the PPG fails. Sam said any of the Pfitzner H pattern dogs really should be fitted with a billet interlock. Makes sense really, as dog boxes slam the dog rings together and of course will cause more stress on the interlock from shock loading. I'm really surprised PPG don't / won't make one. This is not really required with synchro only boxes though. Also with Neat gearboxes the PAR gearset, Nissan 5th / Rev gears and main shaft was fully crack tested, shot peened and isotropic super finished, which strengthens even more. I will report back with updates to see how it holds up once the wick is turned up on the 6466 at CRD. Running Motul 75w-140 in it. So far, really, really happy. Only thing I will say as a negative is getting the gearsets or parts made up if not in stock can take awhile. This guy really needs to expand his operation as being basically a one man band now they can't keep up with parts supply like Pfitzner can. Give Haysam at PAR a call and see what the availability is like first, he's a good guy to talk to.
  12. Let me know if you get stuck obtaining them, I might be able to pull a rabbit out of a hat if needed.
  13. if you can find them, the RH side 38220-24U05 is discontinued remember ? LH side 38220-24U06 is still available, but right and left are different lengths. Try Japanese Motorsport in Adelaide, I sold my last set to them.
  14. No can't use, different lengths, I looked into it before I did my Quaife. You need the ones with 46 tooth speed sensor gears also, the Atessa uses this for the wheel speed too. You should have bought a pair my shafts while I had three 31 tooth R33 sets remember ? Forget the cost, they are becoming stupid hard to source now, took me six months hence why I obtained 3 new sets when I could.
