  1. Hey guys, still trying to track one down. Just missed out on the last one at Yahoo auctions Very serious buyer here! Will pay good coin! Cheers blokes.
  2. My mate @dankphotography snatched a pretty sweet pic of me giving it a boot full at Wakefield park recently. Thought it may be enjoyed here !
  3. Would leave in a vacuum sealed chamber under multiple bubble wrap covers and never drive it ever / 10
  4. Welcome mate. Good to see other Newcastle-ians kicking around 🤙
  5. Screen was from my local jaycar, it was $160 https://www.jaycar.com.au/1024x600-hdmi-7-screen-with-usb-capacitive-touch/p/XC9026 Very cool to see that this stuff was still do-able 10 years ago ! Although I suppose that was only 2008 now.
  6. Yea I think that's my next move with it, I didn't wanna do anything too hacky-slashy before I reliability tested it as is. Deff wanna get it out of sight!
  7. Recently finished my little summer project. Interested to see if there are others who have gotten sick of standard head units and hooked up a tablet or pc in their vehicle. THE SCREEN: This is a 7" touchscreen w/case for a raspberry pi (bought from jaycar) running off my Microsoft surface 3 that sits pretty in my glovebox. Above the surface, I attached a powered usb hub (purchased from officeworks) that is powered by an inverter (jaycar). This is because the surface only has one usb port and that wasn't enough for my application. The inverter is powered by the cigarette lighter socket. It also charges the surface tablet when the car is on IGN. It is mounted in the passenger footwell (hopefully far away from getting kicked, so far so good) The screen requires a hdmi signal and a usb signal for touchscreen. I purchased an adapter (jbhifi) that converts the mini display port in the tablet to a female hdmi port. The micro usb output on the screen goes straight to the usb hub. The tablet plugs into the hub via it's single usb port. I have a VI-PEC ecu that plugs into the hub via the LINK tuning cable and the tuning software installed on the surface to get a live feed from the ECU. The screen is mounted to a second head unit surround I purchased incase i wrecked it or it didn't fit. Minimal mods were required to get it sitting nice. The other usb cable goes into the sound system. THE SOUND SYSTEM: My car already has an aftermarket sound system (amps and sub). My amps power the speakers so all i needed was something that was capable of accepting multiple RCA leads, and was usb powered/ usb audio. The ASUS XONAR U7 MKii external sound card fits these criteria. It's capable of 7.1 surround and is usb audio and powered. A couple of adapters were required for some of the plugs as they are 3.5mm jacks, not RCA. No biggie, jaycar has the goods. The card is mounted behind the screen and plugs into the usb hub in the glovebox. Utilising the ASUS software, the sound system could be tuned to a degree. I've found I'm now at the mercy of the quality of sound files I use for music on the tablet (mp3 etc etc) so the quality differs. The main effort was the screen setup, music was just a bonus for me anyway. CONCLUSION: The setup as a whole is way better the my old single DIN headunit. I no longer have radio (what a shame) and have to make sure I turn the tablet on after starting the car and turn it off before switching the car off (just like you would a pc I guess) otherwise it has a s#$% fit). My ability to view and even modify ECU settings is very useful when the car gets tracked. Live temps and values etc. (I'm far from a tuner so I just peek) I have all normal windows pc functions like Wi-Fi and internet browsing, bluetooth etc (obviously not while driving........) I'm pretty sure you could even get Google maps to work as a navigator if you have the surface 3 with gps. Mine does not. No r34 interiors were drilled into or hacked up in the making of this project. It's all removable and reversible incase it all goes to s%$^ lol. The whole project cost me a few hundred bucks because I already owned the surface 3... I'm pretty sure all the newer surfaces are too big to fit in an r34 glovebox anyway. Smaller laptops may work. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
  8. Keeen where do i sign
  9. 570cc injectors and orings SOLD
  10. Should've put it all on one post. My bad - R34 Gtt front and rear shocks AND pedders lowered springs. Front shocks are Koni adjustables and probably didn't even go 5000km before I decided to go with coilovers, Rear shocks are Bilsteins and have no leaks. FORK TYPE!! If you have hicas these will fit. Dust boots on all shocks are shot and need replacing. $200 neg - R34 GTT rb25det NEO factory fuel injectors. Purchased in working condition from shamrock spares but were never installed. Missing the upper o-rings, but could probably use a service before use anyway. $60 Located Newcastle NSW Can post the smaller stuff.
  11. WTS: R34 GTT factory Diff Centre series 1 Was working before removal, could use a re-shim/ service etc etc. Removed because I upgraded to a Nismo 1.5 way. Pickup preferred as it is heavy Located Newcastle, NSW $100 neg
  12. WTS: 570cc Nissan injectors & O-rings Factory vr38dett R35 GTR Injectors, however they have many other applications. They came out of my R34 GTT rb25det neo and were in working order. They can be installed on a factory fuel rail. The seals and o-rings were damaged on the way out, but I'm including genuine nissan upper and lower o-rings for a rebuild / service. One Injector had it's end cap damaged as pictured, will need to be fixed. I believe they are a direct fit for other nissans such as Z33, Z34, V35, V36 and Stageas. Located Newcastle, NSW Can post $200 neg
  13. Yea the sub meters are discontinued so it's gonna be a tough gig finding one of them. How much would you guys sell a cluster for?
  14. Chasing an R34 GTT Nismo Combination Meter (cluster) and the Nismo sub meter (triple gauge) Willing to pay decent coin as I'm struggling to get my hands on either. Used condition is defiantly not gonna bother me, Cheers!
