  1. Hello Thought I’d take time share with you my GTR. I’ve been a member on SAU since the early days – April 2002. Started on here as a young guy in my early 20’s – just sold my VP HSV and was looking to buy a R33 GTSt which were just starting to be sold at the yards around that time. After owing the GTSt, I moved onto Supras, Evo’s and various R33 and R34 GTR’s over the last 10 years. Although I loved the 2JZ Supras – the car that I always loved the most and always gives me the best memories – was my 2001 R34 GTR V Spec II. 2001 GTR V Spec II 1998 GTR Supra 2010 Shelby GT500 Being without a GTR for a number of years I decided I would start quietly keeping an eye out in Japan for my next car. I am very particular about my cars – extremely fussy – so I was in no rush – browsing the yards in Japan is half the fun. I was after a car in Japan – I had to be first owner in Australia. I was after a quality modified car – standard or near standard cars was not an option – as had many and I was looking for something more hardcore. Wanted a car built in Japan, of the highest quality, genuine low km, etc etc. This car would be a keeper – something I will spend time in with my sons, enjoy, etc. I was actually looking for a 34 …. when I received an email from Global Auto in Japan (where I had purchased the Autoselect R34 GTR the week before)…….. Details of Vehicle of emailed to me from Global Auto ... 1997 R33 GTR V Spec Series 3 50000km 87o N1 piston Cylinder head surface training positive processing Engine block boring, honing surface Modification to crank, Konrod weight adjustment NISMO metal head gasket N1 Oil Pump N1 Water Pump TRUST Aluminium Pulley Kit TRUST T78-33D Turbine Kit TRUST Exhaust Manifold TRUST Racing Westgate TRUST Fuel Delivery Line TRUST 3 Layer Intercooler TRUST Intercooler Piping TRUST 16-stage Oil Cooler TRUST Aluminium Radiator TRUST front pipe TRUST TR Power Evolution muffler TRUST sequential 6-speed transmission TRUST PROFEC boost controller TRUST turbo timer TRUST boost gauge HKS super power flow reloaded Ted NISMO Fuel Pressure Regulator NISMO Large Capacity Fuel Pump BILLION silicon radiator hose SARD 650cc fuel injector Aluminium Suction Pipe Apexi N1 suspension OS GIKEN twin plate clutch OS GIKEN lightweight flywheel WINMAX brake pads AMKREAD AM-1 18-inch wheels POTENZA 275/35-18 tire HKS F-CON V-PRO NISMO 320km full scale meter NISMO-dash triple meter N1 bumper duct Pictures as sent to me from Global Auto... Just arrived at their yard – before they put it for sale would I be interested. Upon looking at the pictures and quick call to check over some details – I purchased it immediately. When bringing the car to Australia – I decided to ship the GTR directly to GT AUTO in Brisbane. As I’m in Perth – I entrusted Tim and Dave to look after the car for me - service, minor upgrades and tuning needed to be done. I cannot speak highly enough of the boys at GT Auto in Brisbane – who took nothing but amazing care of my car. Whilst at GT Auto - some of the improvements to the car I have made ... * HKS FCONV V-PRO ECU * HKS EVO6 Boost Controller * 1000CC Injectors * RADIUM Surge Tank with Twin External Pumps Bracket * E85 Fuel Line and Fittings * HKS Cam Gears * New NPC Twin Plate Custom Clutch 1000HP * Nitto Clear Cam Cover * Garage Defend C/F Cooling Panel * Tinted Windows * Polished Intake Plenum * New N1 Water Pump * Dyno Tuning GTR whilst at GT AUTO ...

AUTO SELECT Strut brace added. Braided Hoses replaces clear plastic. I will continue to update this topic to share with you my experiences - and keep a history of my GTR. Thank you for reading. Daniel
  2. So I bought a 1996 Nissan Skyline R33 in October last year and thought you know I'm going to enjoy the car as it is and slowly upgrade/fix things. For those looking for a car with massive amounts of power, this is not the build for you. This is for those who are like me (i'm sure you exist) who are happy with their stock car, and spend time washing, polishing, fixing things and just enjoying the car for what it is. I am an engineering student and also work part time which funds my car therefore everything is small and restricted. Many of you thinking, why bother with a build thread. My reply is because I can and why not. I have been reading other peoples threads and it has inspired me to start my own. Also I lost most of my pictures since October and am working on recovering them. So without further ado, here goes. This is my first car. I saved up for 2 years working on weekends to buy this. After a year of searching and finding all sorts of shit cars which had been modified, i found this bone stock Series 2 R33 GTST. The only thing upgraded was the audio and the wheels. I have the standard wheels sitting too just in case I need em one day. with ~158,000 kms (more on this later). I absolutely love it. I'm obsessed with cleaning it and my first aim was to fix everything that was not working or not working 100%. So the last 8 months have been small upgrades and improving things in the car. This is a picture of the day it came home. Instantly I decided it was time for a wash and a drive and photoshoot.
  3. Hi All, Recently my A/C would only blow stinking hot air which was awfully uncomfortable to drive in but it's been too cold to have it off. It started off that it was sporadic but eventually got worse. After some soul searching I found out that the part is a the Air Mix/Blend actuator which controls how much fresh air vs heater air comes through the vents. Tools/Requirements: - Soldering Iron and Solder - Assorted Phillips head and flat head screw drivers - Vice to hold everything - Power supply to test the motor itself - Permanent marker to mark existing points - Sand paper Difficulty: - Low Time Required: - 1 Hour Optional: - Brand new OEM mix actuator - Used OEM working mix actuator 1) Start by testing the actuator using the diagnostics system - If you have error 26, the problem is most certainly the actuator http://www.sau.com.au/forums/topic/426605-aircon-diagnostics-r33/ 2) Locate the actuator under the drivers side dash to the left 3) Remove cap holding the actuator rod in place, mark the rod for reference and pop the rod out of it's "seat" 4) Disconnect the wiring connector from the mix actuator 5) Remove the three securing screws shown below and take the actuator out of the car *over to the bench* 6) Mark some reference points on the arm for the actuator - This will make it easier to assemble again later 7) Unscrew the actuator off its mounting bracket 8) Remove the two screws that seal the housing 9) Using a flat head screwdriver gently pry the arm off the actuator 10) Separate the two clips that hold the housing together from the side and gently open the actuator case 11) Remove all of the little gears from the housing and set them aside somewhere they won't roll away 12) Remove the circuit board and motor from the housing to reveal the last large gear with contacts on it 13) Gently bend the contacts upwards to ensure they haven't been worn out and bent over time - Give the contacts a light sand at while you're at it 14) Clean the contact surface on the circuit board - I wasn't sure what sort of grease this was so I left a thin coat on the board anyway 15) Connect a power source to the motor terminals to ensure the motor still functions - If not see the options above or look at a replacement motor (from Jaycar or other electronics stores or eBay) 16) Take your soldering iron and melt the solder on the joints of the board - Take the time to add a bit more solder where necessary 17) If all went well work your way back from step 12 and test the actuator again
  4. I left an interior light on in my R33 which unfortunately drained my month old battery completely. I've jump started it a hundred times before on my old battery as it died every few days, but this time I was careless and hooked up the wrong cables on the jump pack (black-red, red-black instead of black-black, red-red). I recognised this error after my jump pack started beeping at me, so I swapped the cables around, jump started it, and took it for a drive. When I turned it off, the car just kept running. All electronics and the turbo timer was shut off but the engine continued to run. Since then, I've had to use my fuel pump kill switch to turn my car off. I checked all my fuses (bonnet, cabin, boot) and none appear to be blown. Something else I've noticed is that my central locking using my remote still works, but the immobiliser "beep" doesn't sound anymore when I lock and unlock my car. I disconnected the battery for an hour yesterday but it didn't seem to help, so I pulled the battery out completely and have put it on a charger to pump it right up. Do you guys have any ideas my engine might not be switching off when I turn the rest of the car off? Unfortunately Google and search hasn't helped much this time around.

Searched high and low and hoping they will eventually turn up. I bought the car absolutely stock with 13XXXXKMs on it. I will try to find the ad that was originally posted up on here. There are no known issues with the car and has never been in an accident to my knowledge. I have also replaced all manifold studs plus the manifold and turbo gasket due to previous leak. Does not leak and oil/fluids and doesn't blow any smoke. Though the air con needs a re-gas. If you say you are going to come and take a look, please be professional about and at least let me know if you are not able to make it as I have had to take off work early, deny other people access, just to meet 'seriously interested' people that don't end up coming and not replying to text.

  8. Hi guys, I'm new to the forum Please excuse me if my post is long and boring. Or if the question has been asked before. So like the title says, how do I get close to the stock sound with new (non-stock) parts? Saying that I have no trust for old used stock parts. Basically, I want to hear mostly the engine, not the fart cannon. But at high revs, can go all out. AND I DON'T WANT A LOUD IDLE SOUND Any specific parts you guys can suggest? From the manifold down to the tailpipe, list me some parts I wanna hear everybody's suggestions or opinions. I'm currently listing down parts (along with their codes) for an R32 project I have planned (stock look, stock to above-stock performance, and discrete sound) Candidates: Varex, HKS Silent Hi-power Some factors in consideration: -very minimal "low-key" idle sound (least of it, if possible) -street modest (I don't want to be heard before I am seen) -not so big tailpipe (size close to stock look) -medium ground clearance (close to stock clearance) -I don't mind compromising a little performance (seriously) Extra questions: -Can anybody link me a video of the stock R32 exhaust sound? Factory exhaust, not aftermarket -Please reply? thanks in advance!

  15. I'm chasing a crown wheel with the ratio of 3.583:1 from a R33 NON turbo automatic. They were the only R33's with a ratio that low. Absolute mission to find one as people just throw them out. Any help is appreciated.
  16. Hello everyone, I've recently bought a 1996 R33 from Origin Concepts in Lansvale NSW. I got the car I wanted, but also got a big hassle also. I'm posting this to warn anybody who might try and do business wit these people. I bought a 1996 R33 GTST with 85,000 km on the clock for $11,800. I paid at the upper end of market value as I figured buying from a dealership would eliminate some of the dishonesty. Boy was I wrong!! It turned out that the odometer was faulty and only clocked KMs intermittently; which means the actual KMs are more than what was indicated. I took thecae to Unique Autosports in Castle Hill (very nice people) and paid them to look the car over. They estimate that the car really has between 130k and 150k KMs by the wear and tear on the car. There's some other stuff too, but I won't bore you with it. Anyway, the dealership has refused to own up to selling a car with a faulty odometer and has been jerking me around for the past 30 days with it. I've decided to file a complaint with Fair Trading to see if the can/will help resolve the issue. We will see where that goes... Anyway, be warned and do NOT buy things from these people without having them checked out by someone else BEFORE you give them any money! In the meantime, I will be surfing this site to get ideas on things to do to the car and places to buy parts from. Thanks for reading and spread the bad news so nobody else get take advantage of!
  17. *** GROUP BUY OPPORTUNITY *** I am now the official distributor for Zleds in Australia. What that means is I'm able to offer significant discounts to the DIY kits for the R32 rear LED conversion kit. I am setting up a group buy to reduce shipping price on the consumer end as they are from the United States. These lights retail for more than $600 USD or about $835 AUD, this group buy will see the price cut in half at 400$ AUD with shipping included. The minimum buy is 5 sets. The lights can be customised how ever you would like for additional cost. (Depending on how creative you get between 30-95$ for what you come up with.) I can also get these boards made for the R33, R34 and R35. However the templates for the R33 and R34 have a 2-3 week lead time to be developed. The R35 already has a template if you would like them send me a pm to discuss pricing. I am also able to install the boards for you for an additional $150 with supply of the lights to be fitted. Awaken your GTR with quality Zleds rear led conversion kits. I have had these installed on my own GTR below for over a year and a half with no issues what so ever. The lights also can be set to pulse on braking or changed to be the "NISMO" style ring LEDs if you prefer. What you come up with is limited only by your imagination. I have included the YouTube link below as well to see the lights in action. (Many of the NSW guys have seen them already and can attest to the build quality) 'Nismo' styled lights Conversion 1 style If you would like to order please send me a message or you can email me at ricardowilliamsATright2drive DOT com DOT au Before any of the boards are purchased I will need to meet the minimum buy. For R32 boards it's 5 orders, the R33 and R34 are 7 as they will need to be made for the larger halos in the R34 lights and larger turn signal in the R33 light. Pricing for the R33 conversion is 490 and the R34 is 525. These prices only reflect GROUP BUY pricing. Please note that these are also base price minus the sequential brake upgrade. I have attached a few photos to view of them on my own car, Please send enquiries to my email - ricardowilliamsATright2drive DOT com DOT au You can also visit www.zledslights.com to view the current lights available and styles of others already done. Alternatively you can send me a message on facebook.
