  1. As per the title, I need 2 x intake & 2 x exhaust valves to fit an RB25DET from an R33 GTST series 2. In Adelaide would be good, but can pay for postage.
  2. Up till 5 months ago I would have said "no problem, go for it", but this was a stock RB30 piston from a 25/30 in a dedicated track car:
  3. Not sure who makes it - we bought a pair (driver & passenger) off Gumtree about 5 years ago. They are specifically made for an R33 (and maybe 32/34?), and bolt into the original seat mounting holes. They look very similar to Ebay seat mounts
  4. We have one of these in our R33 track car. Had it for around 3 - 4 years, and works fine. Car is driven by 2 not-skinny-or-light drivers. You would also need a mounting bracket of some description. Ours uses a 1 piece bracket that bolts into the original 4 seat mounting holes, but the design of the bracket (and the fact that it's designed to get the seat quite low) means that it isn't a 10 minute job to install or remove - your 330i may be different.
  5. As per GTSBoy, it seems to always be in the way of something I'm reading or want to click on. I'm on a PC, and until a couple of days ago had never seen this popup. I thought it was something new.
  6. Recently I have started getting a very annoying popup in the bottom LH corner of my screen labelled "Popular on SAU" with a preview of a post and post heading - I can't find a way to disable it nd it's giveng me the sh***s. How do I get rid of it?
  7. Thanks - lots of options there. I had considered the last option, and decided that if it was that easy everyone would be doing it, so didn't think anymore about it.
  8. To be fair, you mentioned oil & BMW in the same sentence first. So back on track, what tyres have you found?
  9. I have a BMW, and as much as I love it, I'm very qualified to bash it......
  10. Assuming you have 8.5" rims, 245 should be ok. The 245/45 will be a slightly larger diameter, so acceleration will suffer a bit. We tried these a few years ago, and compared to a "real" semi slick they weren't very good. I thnk the AR-1 is a better track tyre than the NS-2R, but not sure how the pricing compares. Have you tried to find used tyres - there are some bargains to be had sometimes.
  11. Probably like moving interstate and needing to get a roadworthy to change rego I suspect.
  12. Thanks for that - massive help. I assume the spacer is just sitting between the block & idler - not welded / JB welded or anything? Yeah - I'm on the fence at the moment. There is a suggestion that the S1 block is somehow stronger, and I've got it. OTOH it was cheap, and maybe the newer block is the better option. I was hoping to find someone who has used the PRP plate - I can always ask them but will they tell me if it's not a good solution?
  13. No, this area on the early blocks needs to have material added, not removed: I can't see anything on page 7 that helps me - can you expand? To be clear, my problem is mounting the idler/tensioner where the top photo on page 7 shows "RB25 Idler". The pic above shows the same location without the idler. On later blocks this area is filled to the same level as the area on the left hand side of the pic.
