  1. DIY: Hicas ball joint removal & replacement / Gktech lock bar install. Job: Replace worn out hicas ball joints, without removing hubs. Fit hicas lock bar. Parts needed: Gktech lock bar 2x Hicas ball joints Tools needed: Jack, Jack stands, WD40, Grease, Impact wrench, Adjustable wrench, Socket set 10-30mm, Circlip pliers, Pliers, Ball joint press kit, 42mm O.D. x 37mm I.D. x 60mm Steel pipe, Pitman arm tool, Angle grinder, Breaker bar, Safety glasses, Hearing protection, Mask. Duration: 3-6hrs. Difficulty: Medium - Easy with the right tools. Step 1: Remove rear seat, remove battery earth and remove suspension. Then carefully jack up the car and use jack stands. Step 2. Spray wd-40 on the bolts, remove split pin and 17mm nut from ball joint/tie rod end. Step 3. Use pitman arm tool or suitable tool to remove tie rod end. Step 4. Crack the tie rods from the hicas unit under the rubber boot, unplug the hicas wiring. Step 5. Remove the 19mm bolts holding the hicas unit to the car and then remove the tie rods. Step 6. Install the tie rods into the gktech lock bar leaving the rubber boots loose. Set that aside for now. BALL JOINT REMOVAL. Step 7. Remove circlip from back of ball joint. Step 8.Cut the ball joint stud to allow more space to remove. Step 9.If you haven't removed suspension do it now.Use the ball joint press tool to press the joint out.Most kits don't come with a small enough size pipe to allow for extraction of the joint, so you will have to find a steel pipe of 42mm O.D. x 37mm I.D. x 60mm. Very common pipe size fits perfectly. Carefully align your press tool with the pipe on the hub. I used 5mm steel plate as a backing plate and then used the correct size socket to sit flush on the back of the ball joint. This will allow you to push the ball joint through the hub towards the rear. Step 10. With the ball joint removed, clean the ball joint housing with wd40 and a rag. Step 11.Apply grease to the joint and housing. Step 12.Use a 30mm socket or similar sized pipe that fits over the rubber boot and sits on the metal rim of the joint to press the new joint in. Align the press tool with the socket and ball joints rim and start to turn the press tool to insert the joint into the hub. Joint installed. Step 13.Reinstall the circlip to the back of the ball joint. Step 14.Cable tie the hicas wiring out of the way. Install the gktech lock bar. Tighten the 19mm bolts. Check the tie rods are tight, then secure the rubber boots. Step 15.Install the tie rod ends and replace the 17mm nut and split pin. Step 16.Reinstall suspension, rear seat and wheels.Remove hicas bulb on the cluster, or cut hicas warning light wire on hicas cu in boot.Get wheel alignment.All Done.

  3. Besides the exhaust, here are all the parts I intend to buy to complete my stage 1 r33 build. The car is currently stock. Is there anything else I should buy or replace for something else on this list? This is a budget build but I also don’t want to cut any corners so any tips would help. I am sure I am missing some parts, especially with the bigger fuel pump. Thank you

  5. Apexi Power FC & Handset ECR33 skyline GTS: Suits R33 GTS25-t skyline series 1 & 2, part number 414AN012. Condition is as good as new, I purchased the power FC brand new from Just Jap Auto 3 years ago and paid $1650. The FC has never been tuned and was only plugged in once when purchased to test that it was functioning. I never installed in my car as I was always waiting to have it installed and tuned properly at the same time. Just never got around to it. Comes with the base R33 map, controller, manuals and still in the original box. Im after $1200 for the whole lot. (Photos to come)
  6. Hey there just wanted to verify with you experienced R33 Skyline owners out there. Is this 2 wire black plug that was looped and taped back from factory (green with yellow stripe and black wires) for the fog light mating plug that connects to the S2 Fog Light Indicator Stalk on a S1? Ive purchased a S2 Stalk, popped in a genuine Nissan Brown Relay in the engine bay relay and fuse box and made sure the fuse was good also. Just wanted to verify if this plug pictured is indeed the mating plug that connects to the S2 Stalk? Cheers for the help and hope this helps others in my position as well when I get an answer.

  12. I've read a few things that the S14 and ECR33 share the same Front Lower Control Arms and others say their different.. Not sure which is correct, I am looking to place these on my R32 GTST, Any Help would be greatly appreciated!
  13. Need Help On R33 Build!? Alright so I just picked up a good condition gt2530 for 400$ recently that mates to the rb25det with that being said im looking for some 555cc injectors and a fuel rail to suit my car if anyone could give me links to what they use thad be much appreciated. Reason being is I have a raceworks fuel rail brand new and it says it takes 14mm top mount injectors but I have no idea what 14mm injectors to look for and havent seen anyone install a raceworks fuel rail into there car with photos! Also does that meen the top of the injectos are 14mm and the bottomg are 10 (assuming thats what stock injector sizes are)? Ive been thinking of going with BPP https://www.golebysparts.com.au/parts/view/284/58/nissan-rb20-25-26/fuel-rails-and-fuel-rail-injector-kits/rb25-r33-bpp-fuel-rail-and-bosch-1000cc-injector-kit but would a 255lph fuel pump be able to handle 1000cc injectors? second BPP is incredibly expensive for the price!
  14. Hello. I have an ecr33 skyline (rb30/25det) and going to use Nistune ecu. I have a plx afr gauge (dm-6) and it has a narrowband output so I'm wondering it it'd be worth it to use that signal for ecu? The reason i'm wondering is the plx afm is brand new and the cars o2 sensor is original (now 23 years old). I've heard that people changing o2 sensors get better fuel consumption etc so could the plx result in more accurate readings? I'm having a new downpipe/exhaust made up regardless so that doesnt matter. Dont really want to buy a new o2 sensor for ecu if I can simply use the plx for that aswell. Thanks for any help!
  15. As per the title, an EOI for any suitably priced R33 Calipers. located Melbourne, Victoria. please PM or reply here. Thanks.
  16. Hey guys. I've noticed while a lot of people are changing hubs, cables, etc there's not a whole lot of discussion on what people are buying to replace the shoes once the pads wear low. There doesn't seem to be a parts listing with Bendix, so I thought I'd ask the community before I start the task of removing shoes and trying to match up similar looking parts that are available. In particular, I'm after replacement part details for an ECR33 GTS-T Skylines rear drum shoes. With all the handbrake jockeys out there these days, I thought this would have been a more popular request. I'm not yet looking forward to asking Nissan for a price.
  17. Recently a new owner of my beloved skyline! Here are the details, I'm pretty stocked and can't wait to start my dream project. I know a little but not a lot hence why I've joined this to gain more knowledge! I have a 1995 R33 RB25DET series 2 (ecr33 gts25t) type m. f**k all ks on the clock Manual, fully stock standard, 2 door coupe and I found one with a sunroof! (I thought it was a cool plus, don't see many of those as they were an option). She runs awesome but needs some work and I just wanted to know some of the following: Best oil to use in the gear box Where to find decent rims and tires (I wanna know where to get chuck ons too, for naughty purposes) What plugs and leads should I use Thoughts on the Exidy clutches, and what one would you recommend? Coil overs - what's your fave?? I'm thinking Tein Also, it's the stock silver color but I'm getting it repainted, thinking gun metal grey or a similar purple to the midnight purple, or keep it stock colour opinions? Currently running 6psi and I want to to run 10psi of that helps also with the questions. Chat away - correct my stuff ups, let's talk projects! (I've attached a photo) let me know what you think, I'm pretty sure it has a series 1 front end but comments on what I can do with the body would be sick too Help a chick out, bless.
  18. ECR33 questions about "Type M" / ENR33/HR33/ER33 types Hi, ===== Question 1 ===== I have some questions about ECR33s and if they are all Type M or not if the GRADE in FAST is GTS25T/M. Basically there's 4 series I'll refer to as series 1 / 1.5 / 2 / 2.5 with numbers of Series 1 ECR33-000151 ECR33-032xxx Series 1.5 ECR33-050101 ECR33-063xxx Series 2 ECR33-101001 ECR33-114xxx Series 2.5 ECR33-130101 ECR33-135xxx (excluding pre-production ranges) So All series 2 and 2.5 are all Type M I'm told (most, but not all of 2.5 are 40th anniversary editions). Anyway, regarding series 1 and series 1.5 In FAST the GRADE is always listed as GTS25T/M. However, in the series 1.5 range there is a model code for Type M. If the 16th digit is J or K, it is coded as "Type M" or "Type M with rear spoiler". This applies to about 20% of the cars. From reading around many people say all are Type M. So does anyone know why it is coded into the model code in series 1.5? Does it mean that series 1 + 80% of series 1.5 are just GTS25t and 20% of series 1.5 + 2 + 2.5 are GTS25t Type M or are they all Type Ms? I've looked through auction results and found cars that look identical but are coded differently: http://exportcar.jp/en/component/auctstat/?view=auctstatdetail&id=98JyzhcUaYku3vd > coded type M in FAST http://exportcar.jp/en/component/auctstat/?view=auctstatdetail&id=4wboBIL1bBWR4 > not coded Type M in FAST Basically I'm trying to find out what the code means and why it is applied to some cars and not others. ===== Question 2 ===== Are these the only types of ECR33s? GTS25 Type S GTS25t Type M GTS25t Type M 40th Anniversary GTS25t Type M Active LSD GTS25t Type M1 4 door GTS25t Type M2 2 door GTS25t Type M2 4 door ===== Question 3 ===== Are these the only types of ENR33s? GTS-4 GTS-4 40th Anniversary GTS-4 Type G GTS-4 Type X ===== Question 4 ===== Are these the only types of ER33s? GTS25 GTS25 Type G GTS25 Type S GTS25 Type S/S GTS25 Type X GTS25 Type X Limited GTS25 Type XG GTS25 Urban Runner S GTS25t Type G GTS25t Type S ===== Question 5 ===== Are these the only types of HR33s? GTS GTS Type G GTS Type S GTS Type X GTS Type X 40th Anniversary GTS Type X Limited GTS Urban Runner S I've done quite a bit of searching and reading but thought I should also check here. Thanks very much.
