  3. Sooo, I hope someone of you have done this and can give me some advice. The R32 subframe got 4 bolts for the front of the rear diff, will probably just move the R32 part over to the S15 subframe (cut and weld). But how about the other reinforcement in front of the R32 front bushes? And the overall feeling is that the R32 subframe looks stronger. Any thoughts and advices, let me have them
  4. Just need someone or few people to give me a hand to convert my r34 sedan auto to manual All parts supplied Can $$ for work
  5. Running into a bit of an issue. R34 GTT auto trans has a speed sensor at the back, little 2 pin plug, assuming it's speed sensor 2 however the current trans harness doesn't plug into it. So assuming that either my harness is wrong or someone swapped out the sensor with a different one? Either way anyone have any ideas on what to do in this case? Is there a suitable replacement to speed sensor 2 or do I even need it?!
  6. Hello guys, I picked up a nice little 2003 350GT-8 with a buggered CVT gearbox, I fitted a secondhand CVT gearbox but was unable to rectify the faults. After about 1 year of spending time trying to find the faults, I decided I would make the leap and convert the sedan to a 6MT from a 350Z. Please try and refrain from writing things like "WHY DIDNT YOU JUST BUY A MANUAL TO START WITH" etc etc. I don't care. The car cost me $1500 licensed and all, and 2k for the conversion. Still cheaper than buying a 350 6MT. This post will contain as many photos as possible as I progress through the build. This will be continually updated as I complete the stages. I have never been able to find out about mounting the handbrake lever, or the legalities on cutting the transmission tunnel out to fit the gearbox. I hope to provide some light on these matters for the next person to take on the conversion project. Removed CVT and threw it in the skip bin. Best feeling of my life. GOOD RIDDANCE. Removed the following; Carpet (needed a clean anyway) Front and rear seats Center console HVAC and anything in my way Witing harness Airbag module, Gyro & Traction control module. (NOTE ANYTHING WITH YELLOW PLUGS IS SRS AIRBAGS, MAKE SURE BATTERY UNPLUGGED ALSO DO NOT FLIP OVER THE SRS MODULE FROM UNDER THE CONSOLE, IF YOUR BATTERY IS CONNECTED OR IT HAS CHARGE IT WILL SET OFF YOUR AIRBAGS. IVE SEEN IT DONE. VERY DANGEROUS.) Brackets and really anything you see is going to slow you down. Mock fitted the console and handbrake assembly to see the alignment. Measured gearbox to the tunnel. Pictures of the handbrake assembly and how it DOES NOT match anything on the original tunnel, I guess you could make up a few brackets and cut some holes but that is dodgy and I want this thing to be as good as factory when I am done. I have a manual tunnel from a 350Z, I have decided to remove the inner skin that has the moulding for the manual trans and the handbrake that I require. Once done will be as simple as bolting it all onto the new inner skin as per factory. I was able to drill out the spot welds with a Spot weld cutter available for $20 its like a little hole saw. I have a qualified boilermaker / engineer on hand to weld the skin into the cars existing tunnel. There are A LOT of little spot welds not marked with arrows, the arrows are just pointing out a few of the ones I started to cut out. More photos and info to come! Thanks
  7. Hey guys im swapping my n/a S1 rb25de to a series 2 Rb25det and i was just wondering what things will i need to make it a straight swap e.g will it bolt straight onto my gearbox and will the engine mounts be the same cheers
  8. Hey there lads, Ive looked around a little bit and have come up empty handed. Is it possible to run an r34 gtt auto gearbox in an auto r33 gts25t? Have you heard of this being done before? If its possible what do i need to do it? Im sure a lot of you are thinking why on earth don't I just go with a manual but any help is well appreciated. Cheers
  9. Hi Guys. Hope I can get some help here. I have searched to try and see if I can get any info but could not get much. If I could possibly get some info on the conversion I am considering doing please. I currently have and Rb 25 Det engine. These are some of the Mods that were done. Cylinder Head: Ported and Flowed Cams cut 270 All rb 26 internals: Valves , Lifters , Retainers , Valve Springs etc So the head is complete solid lifters solid cams not using vvt anymore. Sub Assembly is stripped due to detonation: 1 piston in the ringlands , no 6 big end bearing spun. So this is what I need help with please A friend of mine offered me a rb 26 bottom end that I can fit the Rb 25 det Head too. So some of the info that I have managed to get says it can be done. The Rb 26 uses 12 mm bolts. But are there any other mods that need to be done in terms of water galleries and oil? Can I use my rb 25 cometic head gasket of the block? Or is this a straight fit? Any input will be appreciated Chev R
  10. Hi guys, im currently living out of Aus for a few years and would like to pick up a cheap car for daily driving and fun cruising on the weekend. I have average experience with cars and do alot of reading on specs/stats etc. I would like to know some pros and cons from users here in regards to buying a 2nd hand cefiro with one of these turbo engines. Im a big fan of these 3 engines and there is a large supply of cefiros for sale with these engines available in them. Now obviously it depends how good the work has been done on the car, but for now i would like to be able to narrow my search on them. It will most likely be personal preference of which engine, but in regards for maintenance etc and less issues of modified engines i have heard the 1jz is quite reliable. Rb25 would be great, and the 2jz has always made me cream myself as a youngster watching my first mkiv supra fly by...... If anyone has experience in these engines in a conversion point of view, especially in a cefiro could you please let me know. I would be driving manual. A few of them have had LPG conversions too.....im not too fond of the idea and i have done some googling on LPG tubo cars, but could i get some light shed on the idea of LPG in a turbo car. The reason for buying a cefiro is because years ago they were a bigger import here and anything such as a skyline, or silvia/s14/180sx are a few thousand $ more than the cefiros that have had some slight work........hence the choice of the A31. I have drivin in some old soarers and a chaser. Ive never drivin a rb25det. They are all fun to ride in but now that im looking at 1 chasis and have to choose which engine its quite difficult! I enjoy my cars and im not too biased about them. Dont be upset or biased about a nissan running a toyota engine please!! Just give me your thoughts from a tuners POV. Thanks heaps! Any help will be much appreciated.
  11. Posted this in the classifieds for my brother, just posting it here in the local section if any are interested. PM me. Cheers http://www.skylinesaustralia.com/forums/topic/408426-fs-s13-silvia-with-rb20det-conversion/
  12. Converting a Gt-v into a 25gtt I know it's probs been covered already but I haven't come across anything to do with converting a gtv. I have a 2000 25gt-v (essentially a turbod car, just without the turbo engine) what will I need to convert it into a 25gtt? Obviously the engine, but I'm not sure if I'll need a new gearbox etc...
  13. 1984 Toyota Tarago V8 I have been thinking about selling this for awhile now, So will put it up to see how it goes, Not fussed if it sells really, but cant really afford so many toys, I have had this van for about 5 years, The motor conversion has been in it for about 2-3 years, It was originaly a 3Y 4cyl and 5 speed manual...... It was far to slow....... It now has a mild 308 Holden V8, The motor was built by "The Brock Shop" a few years ago, It has been very well looked after and very regulary serviced, It has ported heads with bigger valves, springs etc, ACL Flat top pistons, Fairly lumpy cam (unsure specs) Edelbrock performer manifold, 600 Holley, MSD Coil, Crane cams ignition unit, Crane cams electrionic dizzy, hi volume oil pump, Rollmaster timing gear, new hi-torque gear reduction starter motor, brand new balanced flexplate with new ARP bolts, usual good gear, It has a 3000rpm Hi-stall convertor, trimatic auto box, new Hurst pro ratchet shifter, Running Commodore diff (3:23 ratio, open, really needs 3:89) It has twin radiators with thermo fans, stainless steel flexable bottom radiator hose, (sprintcar style) It is running a twin exhaust, has stock exhaust manifolds (not gotten to modifying extractors yet, But have big ones to go with it) has twin 2.25" exhaust to 2 "Hooker Headers Aero chamber" mufflers, then twin 2.5" tailpipes, sounds great, The van is currently making about 200rwhp, was making 185rwhp with an extremely restrictive exhaust but is now changed, Will make more as it needs a tune, This will be getting done when I find time etc, It is Mod plated for the conversion and registered as a 308 with the current motor, Registration due in January 2013, The van itself does have some rust in the usual Tarago places, and the paint is a rough, few minor dents etc, would need a paint job to look the part again, Also needs a windscreen as it has a crack in it, but makes for an awesome sleeper as is, I am still fixing it up slowly and will continue to do so untill sold, It is a pretty cool cruiser and gets lots of looks (many unsure and confused ones) and definatly a whole lot of fun to drive, It is still an 8 seater van so you can go cruising with 7 of your mates May swap or part trade with cash either way, open to offers Will swap drifter, S14, something tough, Make an offer Asking $4500 ono (dont offer me $2500 then try to tell me you know more about my car than I do!)

  16. I have a couple of R31 to sell. I have moved to New Zealand and have no where to store them anymore. Hoping they will go to a good home and continue where I left off with drifting. Both cars run sweet but the GTS-X needs a windscreen and a good tidy up. It seems a shame to strip the GTS-X but realistically it will make an excellent donor for the TI which is already set up for drifting. Im looking at about $2000 for the pair or will sell seperately for the right price. PM me for more info and offers. 1989 R31 TI details: RB30E Surge tank and external Walbro fuel pump. S13 Strut conversion with Tein coilovers R33 N/A front brakes (stock wheels fit over them) Manual conversion. Brass button friction plate. Mini spool. Electronic line locker. Nitros Oxide wet kit. Solenoids removed but lines and brackets still installed. Pacemaker extractors with 2.5" straight through exhaust. Heaps of rims. Heaps of spares. Much more that I have forgotten. 1989 R31 GTS-X details: RB20DET Front mount intercooler. S13 Strut conversion with 5 stud rotors. 4 pot front brakes All new suspension. Sway bars. Strut braces. Nissan Patrol pressure plate with brass button friction plate. Also more that's been forgotten. PM me for more info, offers, etc

  18. 240z with an RB30DET, Vic roads registration issues Dear Sau Community, I am planning on swapping an RB30DET into a 240z. I was wondering if anyone can see any blatant breaches of any VicRoads or Epa laws? I have read on here a Skyline with an RB30DET is illegal due to a modern Skylines emission standards and how it is a larger engine. I see the reasons that were explained there but do they still apply to a much older 240z? I plan on getting an RB30E engine block and replacing the head with a twin cam one from an RB25 skyline. Due to the engine being newer, having EFI, possessing double the valves, crossflow design and a better spark plug position it would be much more environmentally friendly than an older carburated engine despite it being 0.6L bigger than the L24. Does anyone know if the EPA has an issue with this? Maybe some turbocharging action could come later but for now, the swap is the biggest issue. It would also be very much appreciated to hear from anyone knows someone or has done it themselves who has tried and either failed or succeeded, your knowledge on the topic would be a great help. Also, anyone who has a completely legal RB swap in an S30 would be awesome too. I wait for your replies with bated breath. Regards, JSBlueGuy
  19. Hi not sure on this one. I'm looking at doing a RB30 25 head. I have a NEO head and a S1/2 25 head. I want to put the S1/2 head on but was looking at making it solid lifters Question is, am i able to use the parts out of the NEO head to convert the S1/2 head to solid? Cheers, Dave.
  20. hi there, im sure this has been asked before so sorry for the repeat, have been trying to search and seems the search bar (or my pc) hasnt been working for a few days. anyway, my brother drives a 2003 (i think) 350GT he has recently upgraded to much bigger AP racing calipers and rotors so here i am thinking i need bigger brakes when i see them in a box in the shed and they would be about perfect for what i need. (2 pot rear 4 pot front i think) would the rotors and or calipers directly bold on? and if not what would be involved in making them fit? also would i be needing a bigger than standard master cylinder? cheers Caleb
  21. R34 25gt-four to R34 GTR Just thought I'd share this side project we have . Never seen a R34 25g-four . So when we saw one in a car yard for less than 8 grand. We couldn't resist. Actually quiet an enjoyable little project so far Check out our instagram #james_mech for this & other projects we got going on
  22. Hey all! I'm a bit or a lurker around here so i thought it was about time i chucked up some content of my own! I'm 20 years old and i have loved cars ever since i can remember, used to live in Mount Gambier in SA, but joined the RAAF and have sinced moved to Wagga Wagga in NSW. I always loved 4WD's but when i was about 14 or 15 i started getting into the imports, and wanted to get an s13 as my first car. But my parents weren't keen on my 16 year old self getting a 2 door coupe as my first car and i settled upon a very nice condition Toyota Cressida. I purchased it in Melbourne and did the 5 hour drive back home, at the time i think it had 294,xxx k's on the clock. I knew the 7M-GE was notorious for head gaskets so i picked one up that had already had the head gasket replaced at 250000k's. It remained grandpa spec for the whole time i owned it, did plan or purchasing some R33 GTR wheels but being 17, in school and having a low income job, that proved difficult. The best part of this car was the motorized heater controls, you pressed a button on the centre console and the air con/heater controls slid out so the buttons were exposed, all very james bond style. I finished school then got a job as an IT tech at the school i had just graduated from. The time came that i was now earning enough money to buy the car i had always wanted. I lived a 2 minute bike ride from work so i sold the Cressida on to someone in Adelaide. In the time between buying the Cressida and selling it, my tastes had changed and now i knew i wanted an R32. I loved everything about them, from the styling to the RB engines. Stupidly i sold the Cressida early and no nice cars came up for 3 months, in which i was riding to work in the freezing cold (i know its a 2 minute ride, shut up i'm lazy haha). I finally found a nice car and got some of my mates living in Adelaide to check it out, he said it was all sweet and it would be a nice car. Rang the guy, said i was very interested in it and i would be happy to drive the 5 1/2 hours and purchase it pending a quick inspection, he said no worries. Left on friday night driving my mates car up to Adelaide for him as he left it home over Easter, and stopped overnight at my mates place about 3 hours away. Just as i leave in the morning i get a call from him saying someone came around last night and bought it. f**k. You. Guy. So i was stuck in Adelaide on a Saturday afternoon with no car, and i had to work Monday. Scoured carsales/gumtree/ebay/sau/nissansilvia for anythnig decent, went and looked at one shitter 32, another nice 32, and then a maroon/red r32. It had an ugly bodykit on it, but was in good condition otherwise. Took it for a test drive was sold very quickly, purchased it on sunday and drove it all the way home. How it looked upon recieveing it; Mod's were: Some terrible looking body kit R34 NEO turbo R32 GTR front mount Turbosmart boost tee SAAS boost guage Walbro fuel pump (which turned out not to be true) Viper rims (was never sure on sizes) ISC coilovers 3" exhaust with JUN rear muffler Was running 14psi and making 170kw Had it a month or two and it ran well, and i was loving life being the owner of my shiny new r32. It was my first turbo car and boy did it go a little faster than the Cressida! I did a lot of driving and getting to know the car before i started making any changes to it. The first thing i did was lower it, being a hektik young 18 year old needing "m0ar low" i set the coilovers to maximum low straight away. Rookie mistake, the fuel tank got stuck on the jack so i couldn't pull it out or pump the handle to raise it up. The next thing i did was replace the 3" hi-slow cat with a decat pipe. I f**king love the sound of an angry RB, and even though it was my daily driver i had to have it. At the same time myself and a mate got hold of some 3" stainless pipe and made up an exhaust for it. Being our first time welding it was hacked together, and we made some 3" blast pipes for it. Was never really a fan of them, i think it was because the pipe diameter was too small, looking back they needed to be about 3.5" i reckon. I ended up giving them to one of my mates and putting the JUN rear muffler back on. While we were making the exhaust i drove it around for a week with just the dump pipe on. Biggest mistake ever. My entire dash now shakes and rattles from the vibrations of the exhaust. Protip #1 never do that. Couldnt resist giving it shit though, it sounded too good haha! At some point i got a flat tyre on the front so i borrowed my mates SSR Longchamps and ran with them for a while. This is when i was happiest with it with the bodykit.
  23. BNR34 / BNR32 Fan Compatibility I have a greddy radiator. The OEM R32 gtr fan hits the shroud and is starting to wear a hole. Going to replace the shroud. Also want to replace the clutch fan. Will the r34 fan fit on the r32 without interfering with the shroud?

    Nissan Skyline R32 -> R34 Hi there! I may or may not be doing this correctly but here is my shot at it. My name is Sony and I live in the United States, I am 19 and am going to be purchasing an Nissan Skyline R32 GTR soon and will be doing an R34 Body Kit Conversion to it as well; I will need help from each and everyone of you that will offer it, and I am definitely looking for ideas and questions from everyone reading this that are interested in JDM and GTR's, about this whole project I will be starting up soon. If I may start this off, does anyone know of any decals they would want to see on a show room level GTR, and what color scheme I should do?
