  1. R33 GTST Gearbox and Nismo Super Coppermix Twinplate clutch kit R33 GTST / RB25DET Gearbox from Nissan Skyline. Had in car ~6 months, had no issues whatsoever shifting, grinding, popping out of gear, exploding, etc etc etc but did only have few months. Removed as engine also removed from car.Drives and sounds like any R33 GTST gearbox that I have personally ever seen.Has new (nismo lol) pivot ball. New OEM slave cylinder too, and a non 18 year old dust boot and crossmember, and new gearbox mount.Nismo Twin plate super coppermix clutch kit with lightened flywheel. Also near new, driven about 10,000kms. These things last many many years of abuse, never received really any abuse as engine/gearbox now out of car. Will hold 450 rwkw, and drive like a clutch that won't make you hate life and can drive daily EASILY$3000 for both, will be $3200 if you make me seperate them. Located Glen Waverley, Melbourne.

  3. Speedtek Gearset Review This is a review based on my experience and may not correlate to your experience when dealing business with Speedtek Auto Racing Parts. TL,DR; Positives • Received the goods (gearset and rebuild kit) • Fair priced and holding up 540whp (soon to push more) • Conversations are in professional and respectable manner • Comfortable to resolve issues and will follow through • Many other higher HP cars in Europe using his products with success Negatives • He has been outside Australia from February 2017 till now, leaves his co-worker in Melbourne to run the business • Co-worker does not seem to conduct any QC prior to sending the goods out, defects were present in the product (read below) • Replies from him take days to weeks to get back in resolving issues (but was quick on the point of sale) being outside the country • Lead time was very average This is more suitable for somebody who has rebuild gearboxes before and understand the components inside, otherwise, it is just jibberish for you. I’ve placed an order for their replacement ‘strengthen’ gear set to replace the current OSGiken gear set on R33 GTR S3 gearbox along with new bearings, synchro and seals. The keyword was GTR Series 3 gearbox. Order was placed on mid-February 2017 and payment was done ever so promptly. Item was sent mid-March and received end of March. The person behind Speedtek is Alex Kantarovski, as some of you would know; he is in the no-good list in SAU with his previous dealings. I am in no way presenting him as a scammer in this review, I’ve received my goods and he is willing to help to resolve the issues I’ve found. He has been out of the country since the beginning of this year and leaves his machinist to produce the product and his co-worker as logistics support. Upon assembly and checking clearances, I realised that the input shaft (4th gear) cone diameter did not match with the synchro supplied. The 4th gear synchro supplied by Alex fitted the OSGiken input shaft properly but not with the input shaft supplied (S3 4th gear synchro is bigger in diameter and uses shifting keys instead of clips). The input shaft he supplied is suitable for R33 GTST GTR or Z32 with the smaller diameter 4th gear cone. I popped him a message early April and he replied by insisting that he will send the correct synchro promptly. The 4th gear synchro for his kit is basically an off the shelf synchro but re-machined to allow for the shifting keys instead of the clips. A month was lost and I received the replacement synchro early May. The day I received the replacement synchro, I received a message from Alex saying that there is an issue with the synchro that I just received. I checked it over the sliding hub and sure enough it has issue with the teeth indexing that will pose shifting problem. He insist that it is a one off issue from the machinist which has been rectified, another replacement will be sent to me soon. 4 days later, the replacement of the replacement is sent to me and received mid-May. Opening the parcel, the synchro has a defect. The machinist made a mistake in the CNC program and created an undercut on the face of the synchro like it smashed tool. Indexing appears to be ok and that undercut shouldn’t affect its function as it is in a non-critical zone. Alex apologised and insisted to send me another one; apparently his co-worker sent me a prototype. I received the replacement mid-May (so right now 4 x 4th gear synchro in total). So assembly starts right away, it is my mistake in just quickly checking the clearance on this synchro and close up the gearbox. I didn’t bother checking how the latest synchro indexes on the hub. With gearbox being back in the car, all gears engage smoothly….except 4th. It crunches whether you shift into it from neutral/standing still/driving/slow shift/fast shift. Double clutching fixes the issue. Contacted Alex about the problem, he suggested to check the diameter of the pilot bronze bush on the crank. He made his input shaft snout to be 16mm diameter. I pulled the gearbox off to confirm and surprisingly the pilot bush was stuck on the input shaft as I pull the gearbox off indicating the interference fit. Why he made it 16mm diameter? I don’t know. The stock and OSGiken input shaft snout measures 15.8mm diameter in which the bush is 16mm diameter internally. I was not informed of this change. I’m not going to call this as my oversight because there was no design advantage to make that change, hence, I didn’t check it. This was the most plausible explanation at the time to why it crunches 4th. I was then suggested to drill the bush out to 16.2mm diameter which I did and slapped the gearbox back on the car. Then still…..no Bueno. It still crunches 4th and the only thing I could think of is the indexing issue of the custom synchro he made, the groove cut for the shifting key was perhaps too narrow so that the synchro does not slightly provide positive engagement with the hub and inevitably the synchronising action pushing it onto the input shaft cone. After messages exchanged and with no luck with this 4th gear syncro, I suggested for a replacement input shaft. The replacement shaft will be to fit the 1st synchro he sent me which has a cone diameter identical to the S3 GTR and OSGiken, co-incidentally it is the same as R34 neo input shaft in which his machinist already has a program on the CNC. This was because I know that the 1st synchro he sent me is a correct off the shelf component rather than guessing with another custom syncro. This is where I am right now, another month has gone by and his co-worker is in the process of sending me the replacement input shaft. Further update to follow… Overall I am not entirely sure if there is anything special with the S3 GTR gearbox. I’ve rebuilt a couple of FS5R30A from R33 GTST, SR20 box and Honda B series gearboxes without an issue with off the shelf parts and this would hopefully be an one off unlucky event. Alex will assist you with any related issue, his parts looks good (not sure what material and heat treatment these gearsets are). He could improve with communication and getting information from his co-worker. I’ve read worse experience in SAU with other companies such as PAR where they seem to just throw you under the bus after sale.
  4. Hi guys Went drifting yesterday and managed to loose 3rd gear. Now that sentience alone would normally be a no brainier as to what went wrong only there are a few things about my car that makes this strange. My car is a S15 with a SR20 making 300 hp @ the wheels, I broke the 6 speed about 18 months ago and decided to just bite the bullet and pay the extra to upgrade to a RB25 box conversion and not have to worry about breaking a box again in the future. When I broke the 6 speed I lost gears 3 and 4 + reverse would sometimes want to randomly go forward... With the current gearbox all of the gears apart from 3rd seem fine. The strange thing is when you move the stick to what should be 3rd gear it seems like there is nothing there at all. There are no noises, crunches or grinding sounds. You can have the clutch fully engaged with the box in neutral and move the shiftier to 3rd and its like there is nothing there/the same feeling as if the clutch was disengaged? Could this be a broken selector fork? I'm a little stumped, I will admit that this happened during an entry into a corner. I had pulled the hand brake to kick the car out and was either in 3rd gear at the time or had just shifted from 2nd to 3rd and did a clutch kick to break traction. My thoughts were that the RB25 box was good for 400+hp and that 300 should be a cakewalk for the box to deal with. Since doing the RB25 box upgrade I have only done 1 previous drift session and on the day that I lost 3rd "yesterday" had only been on the track for about an hour. I have been trying to smash my mortgage not more gearboxes which is why the car has seen very little use. The only other things worth mentioning is that after the conversion there was noticeable vibration in 3rd and 4th gear when coasting/decelerating which the shop that did the conversion blamed on my diff as it was getting tired. I also have alloy slip in diff-subframe mounts/collars which would probably also cause more noise. Anyone else had this happen with their box and what was the solution?
  5. Hey all So i recently bought a R34, originally it was a auto and the previous owner has done a manual conversion on it, drives around fine and what not. But it has come to my attention that the gearbox used is one out of a VL commodore ,well i think it is if someone can confirm the origin of the gearbox it would be appreciated (yes i checked previous threads from years ago but there was nothing confirming it). Also is it worth finding a proper R34 manual gearbox and swapping it out to future proof it ? Gearbox Details Has casted the following code - RP71C #2 5 speed manual only half decent photo of majority of the gearbox i have on hand at the moment

  7. Hi, Wanting to buy a "C" type crossmember for my R32, currently re-shelling my GTST and the "B" type one doesnt fit, the holes need to be going the opposite direction! 0431 192 220 Cheers Damon
  8. When in neutral, i push clutch right in, and give it some revs. 3500-5000rpm it grinds. Even when its in a gear and clutch right in, rev and it grinds. And when driving, changing gears at high revs grinds. If i let revs drop to 2000-3000rpm its no worries. 1993 nissan skyline r33 GTsT. Manual, single turbo. RB25DET.
  9. Has anyone seen these before, link below https://youtu.be/DG12jmFsI7M
  10. Hi guys, I have up for grabs my OS Giken OS88 6 Speed sequential gearbox. This was originally purchased in October 2014 and received June 2015 after an 8 month wait from OS Giken. This is the updated version with the extended sump on it. I optioned this up with "option 2" gear ratio's. (This is an extra $1,000 option over the standard box price). This has the shortest 1st and the tallest 6th (6th same as the factory R32/R33 GTR 5th speed) so it's not spinning higher than it needs to be on the freeway. The ratios are; Option 2: 2.890, 1.981, 1.468, 1.174, 1.000, 0.757. I have also upgraded the gear position sensor to a Novotechnik Item as shown in the photo's below. This does away with the OSG 'switch style' sensor. The box has done no more than 350 km's on the street and a full flex tune on the dyno, so it's as good as brand new. Motul 75W-140 fully synthetic oil was used. That was the product recommended by Award Diff and Gearbox. It will not be driven again apart from the 15-20 odd Km's to where it will be removed. Whats included? - OS-88 6 speed sequential gearbox - Option 2 ratio's. - OS-88 transmission crossmember for BNR32/BCNR33 - Novotechnik gear position sensor - OS-88 Adjustable release fork kit - OS-88 direct shifter kit (bent style) - Release bearing - Gear indicator The gearbox is currently in the car and will be removed within the next couple weeks. I will be happy to take someone for a demonstration drive, HOWEVER, not without a $2,000 deposit. If you're interested in the gearbox you will (well should) know what they're about. The transfer case in those photo's is NOT included. I need that! Apart from the clutch (I used the OS Giken R3C) this is a whole and true bolt in package. Location is Georges Hall, Sydney. I will post at buyers expense. Contact me VIA PM. Price is $16,000

  13. Hey guys just had a quick question. Recently bought a 2005 manual 350gt. Have noticed a couple things. One was that the seatbelt light stays on in the dash. The other was this morning when I put the car into nuteral it was making some strange noises. Didn't sound good at all. And seemed harder to change gears than yesterday. But then after it warmed up the noise was no longer there and gears got easier. Is this a common problem when the car is cold? Or do you think something may be wrong? Thanks
  14. Enquiring if the a gearbox for an automatic non turbo 1997 R33 skyline would be the same for a 1993 R33 Skyline automatic non turbo ?
  15. Gearbox interchange Been offered a cheap price on an r33 rb25det gearbox and am wanting to put it into my r34 non turbo. Been trying to find info on the conversion but cannot come across anything. Is it a direct bolt on or will I need to change the tail shaft and/or other components?

  17. Hi Folks I'd really like a speedo, but the donor gearbox I put in was clearly cable driven in the past. I would love a second hand sensor if anyone has a gearbox kicking around gathering dust for some reason. These seem hard to find as understandably people rarely seperate them. But hey if thats you, please PM!
  18. Hi guys, I am looking at rebuilding my R33 GTS-T gearbox. There must be someone here who has done it or at least a good write up because of how popular skylines are. I have found the factory manual for the r32 gtr by searching on these forums, from reading there are people who say its nearly impossible without the right pullers and others who say its simple. I have a 50 ton press at work and some simple snap on bearing pullers. Does anyone know where you can buy the synchros, bearings, shift forks and whatever else may be necessary to take out this rebuild? My local nissan dealerships are impossible to deal with, don't even know what synchros are and a technician I spoke to who found the parts by looking up the VIN said be looking at a 2-3 month wait and the prices were through the roof ($1100 +GST for bearings, synchros and a spacer!). Local shops quote me $1800 + parts too, very costly. Second hand box not an option as by this age would be in similar condition. Thank you.
  19. Hi guys, I've got an R33 GTST making 235 rwkW. Usual problems with synchros - been nursing the gearbox for years on smurf's blood. On the freeway today in 4th under acceleration the clutch started to slip (did it once, then I deliberately did it once more to check I wasn't dreaming). Also the takeup point seemed higher than usual before I hopped on the freeway. It was a pretty gentle cruise also - not like an organic clutch that's taken a thrashing and will recover a bit when it cools down. Hopefully I haven't trashed the flywheel, but it wasn't making horrible noises like rivets scraping. Looking for guidance on the things that should be replaced when the gearbox and clutch is out. Not looking for upgrades of gearsets/selectors or anything, just re-built back to standard. Also looking for recommendations on what clutch I should put in. Read on another thread that I should stick with factory synchros. What other bits should typically get replaced (eg bearings etc) on a gearbox re-build - assuming I don't have any cracked gears/selector forks etc. At this stage I'm assuming I'm up for: new clutch plate, pressure plate, throw out bearing machine the flywheel replace synchros I'm quite mechanically sympathetic on the old girl, but it does do a few track days a year, and occasional drags. I'd prefer not to have the car back together and someone say, "why didn't you replace blah while you had the 'box out?" Also any recommendations of who to go to in Brisbane? Probably more important, PM me if you know people I should stay away from (please don't flame anyone in the thread) cheers Mike
  20. As the title says, I am in urgent need of a series 1 automatic 4wd gearbox for my RS4 Stagea.
  21. Cedric

    Y34 Cedric auto issues. Hey guys, sorry if this is in the wrong place etc. but I'm stuck, just bought a Nissan Cedric y34 with the vq30dd in it for my missus, drove from Sydney to wagga without a drama (5+ hours) , got near home at a set of traffic lights and as I took off it seemed as tho the transmission slipped into neutral, I rolled back because it wouldn't select any gears turned the car off, selected park and waited a few minutes. We then started it again it selected gears although after sitting there in park for a minute it slipped into 'neutral' again. It had to be towed to work and now I'm lost, checked fluids all seemed fine but it just continues to not select any gears. If anyone at all has any idea please help because I'm currently out of ideas !!! Thanks a lot, Paul.
