  1. hi all, this is my sil80 Thought I would get a build thread going here as NS has died a slow death and i am lurking here alot. Bought this in August 2007 and what started as a neat 180sx with a rb25 has turned into a bottomless money pit it has gone through a lot of changes over the years from a neat daily to "pig" daily to hard parker to very tidy daily to a flaming BBQ and now to weekend racer and garage ornament due to my job i haven't had much time or motivation to enjoy it or fix it over the years but got stuck back into it around 2015 the aim was to get it all running properly take it to track days and the odd weekend cruise. Which I did for about 2 years until mid this year. I moved back to Townsville early 2016 and got back into local sprint days, hill climb and drift days once a month but have taken a break this year when i bought it, it had rb25, 3inch exhaust, rsr springs & jap shocks, 32 gtr front brakes, bov, 17's and completely stock interior-it still had a factory cassette & cd player. this is how i bought it Aug '07 in late '08 fitted up a gt3076r, link g4 ecu, fmic, greddy plenum and went 5 stud. made 230kw and was petty happy how it went. also went sil80 at the same time. how it was before respray dec '09 December 09 i decided to do a quisck respray and freshen up the suspension. well that got a bit out of hand and i ended up seam welding the engine bay & inside, full colour change, replaced most suspension componets & bushes and given the car in general a freshen up(new body rubbers, seals) august '10 2012 bought a built long motor from another forum member, went 6boost high mount and bigger rear housing.

Plan is to make it back into a decent daily that I can enjoy more often and still be semi competitive at the local events in North Queensland.
  2. Good day buddies.... So i have recently installed some Tomei Poncams(Intake 260 9.15 and Exhaust 262 9.15 lift) for my engine (RB25DET NEO).... After they were installed i never checked the shim clearance(p.s shims are above bucket type), due to it being drop in cams and my buddy who installed them never had to re-shim. Unfortunately after i started the car i heard a ticking noise from the back of the head and then investigated the reason of the noise. For a second i taught it was the body oil used(20w50) and i live in the caribbean. So i change the oil to 10w50 and the noise reduce a bit but was still there... When i pop the cam cover and check the clearances this was the results. *Exhaust * Numbers are in "thou" reading 1.0.019 2.0.019 3.0.019 4.0.019 5.0.020 6.0.020 7.0.020 8.0.020 9.0.020 10.0.20 11.0.20 + 0.011 12.0.018 tight or 0.017 AS Tomei recommend there clearances to be .018 thou mine reads close to Nissan specs and never did any head work.... but for when i checked the clearance on valve #11 and #12 i notice that was the problem.... What can cause that such big clearance #11 and tight clearance on #12 ....Btw this is a stock head and never done any head work as my goal was to just see how long the engine can last....

    Hey guys, My car died in the city yesterday at Flinders st. Tried to jump it, nothing. Fuel pump was priming, so I thought may be the AFM, unplugged it and it started. Limped it home and starting tearing it apart, tried a working AFM - nothing, front bumper off and checked all intercooler pipes - nothing, fuel rail hose off and turned car into on position - plenty of fuel comes out, pulled plugs - fouled and wet. Have changed plugs and still nothing, read the fault code and it comes up as 12 for AFM. Can I assume that it’s getting fuel since plugs were wet to rule out injectors and pump?  Anything else I should try?  Thanks.
  5. I’m fitting an rb25 turbo on my RB20 and am wondering what the best sounding outlet pipe is. I’ve looked at the tomei, but I’m not really looking at spending 300 usd for an outlet pipe. What else do you guys think? Also looking at downpipes aswell.
  6. Hey just wanted to add this image here as there is none floating about on the correct layout for the sard jet pump in case anyone got confused by the manual on an R34 GTT 1999. Hope it can help someone out someday.
  7. Hi guys I've been lead to believe by my tuner that my VVT cam gear is making some noise. Around 5000rpm every single pull a noise is picked up by the knock sensor, which keeps going until about 5500rpm at which point it stops, and the ECU sometimes thinks it's knock and pulls timing to compensate. Tuner seems to think it is my intake cam gear, and believes it may be getting a bit noisy for some strange reason. Noise has been described to me almost as a "ddddrrrrrrdrrrrrdrrrrdrrrrrrrrdrrrrrrrr" (best way I can describe it on here) and happens every single pull. Can only be heard through the knock sensor which makes diagnosing it a real pain, as putting it on the dyno every time I replace a component is not even remotely practical. Normally this would not bother me enough to pursue, but because it is affecting how the car drives on some pulls, it's not something i'm happy to leave alone. He has also suggested that it could potentially be a lifter, but that seems very unlikely as these cars have solid lifters off memory. So I contacted Nissan, and am unable to get a brand new intake cam gear for less than $1,200 which is absolutely absurd. So i'm now contemplating other solutions to my problem, and have been thinking I would actually be better off going aftermarket cams with adjustable cam gears. However my setup is still relatively stock with a few bolt ons (front mount, exhaust, cold air intake, nistune ecu, stock turbo, stock injectors etc). So my questions really are: 1. Are there any other suggestions for what this noise could be? 2. What other solutions would I have rather than paying $1,200 for a gear from Nissan? 3. Would going cams on a setup as stock as this even be worth it? 4. How much power would I lose if I just went adjustable cam gears on the stock cams? On a side note, I have recently replaced the cambelt with a GATES timing kit as I was lead to believe that could have been the culprit. Mechanic told me the previous cambelt had not been done very well, and had likely been overtensioned. So this rules out the cambelt or any related tensioners to it, but could reinforce the idea of the cam gear being the culprit?... Appreciate any and all feedback!
  8. Wondering if anyone knows what gearbox is in the r33 rb25de manual, needing a input shaft bearing, anyone know where I could get the bearing? thank you

    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.
  10. Hey guys i made a post in the past about a strange noise my motor has been making on the dyno. It is only heard through the knock sensor when listening in to it, and starts bang on 5krpm and stops around 5.5k every run without fail. Almost sounds like a very fast ‘ddrrddrrddrrddrr’ (best way i can describe the noise on here). Cannot be heard just listening normally. The ECU is picking this noise up and pulling timing occasionaly because of it, but me and my tuner are stumped as to what it is. It appears to be coming from somewhere in the head area of the motor (at least thats what it sounds like). I’m coming here to look for advice on where to look. The cambelt has just been done with all new pulleys is etc, and has been done properly as I was lead to believe that could be a potential culprit. Disabling the VCT does not affect it, noise is there whether that is on or not. Has anyone else had experience with this or any advice on what it could be? Tuner is thinking it may be my intake cam gear, but has never heard of them failing before. Should also add compression is fantastic on all 6 cylinders, and car only has 105,000kms. Any advice and input is much appreciated!

  15. Hi all, recently finished my rb25de+t conversion. Runs and drives perfectly - except after idling for about two minutes it shuts off like i have turned off the key, doesnt hesitate or run rough or blow smoke etc just turns off. Since the problem came up i have done the following, regapped spark plugs cleaned and adjusted aac valve checked battery terminals and terminals at both fuse boxes checked every small fuse in cabin and boot extra info for you which may help, im using the following parts stock gtst ecu stock 25de afm missing oxy sensor and light is on dash doesnt have an immobiliser. i cant think of anything that would shut it down so plain witout and issues or rough idling. thanks!
  16. Good news! my neo 33 is alive. As of a month ago and as everyone knows, when something’s done, something follows. i got my neo started, it randomly died etc. realised the afm wires weren’t even wired so I rewired and now she runs, no dying etc. next step: she’s randomely revving up by itself, my aac valve is wired, so what’s the go?? Cheers fellas. ps, my cas was on the wrong angle Aswell and I’ve changed it back to the angle before I pulled it off and haven’t started her yet since to test, will update on this.
  17. New Comer from Bangladesh/UK Hi All I was participating in the forums from 2013-14 during my postgraduate studies. Back then started with R34 GTT and then replaced with a R33 GTR. Last month migrated to AUS, based in Melbourne, VIC. Imported a '94 R32 GTR with a lot of Nismo goodies. (Will post separate thread about it later) My goals for the Forum are as follows: -meet some car enthusiasts -source spare parts/accessories/etc -seek advise on maintenance/tuning/troubleshoot -gain further knowledge of R and S platforms A bit about myself: -Studied Automotive Engineering in UK -Worked at GM and Jaguar Land Rover in UK -Currently seeking engineering opportunities in AUS Look forward to meeting some people in future meets.

    hey sau, not to bad yourself? been a member here for about a year though I have not done intro or been an active member in anyway. I decided I should become more involved or at least say hi lol. I have a r33 gtst headache with the stock rb25det. been working on the car for about 3 years though it sat for 18 months at one point. my mechanical background is only 1 year as a light auto apprentice 10 years ago. I have no end plan for the 33 just fixing and learning about the platform as go. I'm from the Hawkesbury in Sydney I'm not really involved to much with jdm or any car scenes atm. anyway cheers sau you guys have definitely got me out of trouble a few times with the huge amount of info here.
  19. Hello, Ive just completed my Rb25det neo swap into my r32. Its having a miss on idle, I get RB's dont idle great anyway but i just wanted to get an idea on what might be causing it. Below vid sounds a bit like my car (but isnt my car) My engine is fully stock, just front mount and a walbro fuel pump. I have a cheap FPR I'll chuck in to make sure its not getting too much fuel. I have only done one pull since the swap and it felt ok, I just wanted to make sure it was safe before I take it for a proper drive. Cheers
  20. Just bought this rb25 swapped 240sx (96’) it ran just fine. Was driving it home when the battery moved and leaked acid (in the trunk). I ended up buying a new battery and 4gage wire and new connectors. Reworked the battery safely to the trunk. Wanted to make sure the car would start and it did no problem. Since I had trim and stuff up I wanted to recarpet the car as it looked like some cats gave birth in the car. I did so and also installed gauges and a new radio. Finally went to start the car this morning after everything was done and all it does is crank won’t start please help!

    Who has used one? Has anyone cracked a block since fitting one? Discuss.
  23. Hey Guys, So I've blown a headgasket in my rb25 r32 gtst. I've had a few problems with it with the MAF and some idle issues, but now the headgasket has died. I've been tossing up between just fixing the rb25 head gasket or leaving it for a little bit and building a rb25/30 on the side. If anyone has done it would you say its worth it and what power are you pushing and how much did it cost? What do I do?? Thanks
  24. Hi guys - Apologies if this is the wrong section So recently had my R34 GTT tuned running an RB25DET neo. Tuner said that at around 5000rpm he can hear a noise when listening in through the knock sensor. The ECU is picking it up as knock sometimes but it isn't actually knock. He said its almost a metal-on-metal sounding noise, and it starts at 5000rpm and dissapears at 5.5 every single time. Cannot hear it from outside the car, only when listening in through the knock sensor. I'm hoping for some help in narrowing down what it is. My dyno numbers are perfectly fine (will upload the sheet later tonight), power curve is stable etc. He believes it is something harmonic related as it is only at that RPM range. Have done runs with VCT disabled and it still makes it so that is not the culprit. He has suggested to me that it may be the intake cam gear although he's very rarely heard of them failing. My issue is they are a stupidly expensive part to replace for a "potential" fix. His other suggestions have been potential scoring on the cam lobes. Have you guys got any input on this? So noise starts every single run at basically dead on 5000rpm, stops at 5500. Almost a really fast " drdrdrdrdrdr" noise (best way i can describe it). One other thought by him was potentially a lifter. Unsure if this matters, but the car's running an S2 RB25DET neo, nistune ECU, 14psi boost, front mount, full exhaust, cold air intake. Car is also only 104,000kms. Car still drives perfectly fine and would have had no idea anything was making noise had he not told me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  25. Just wondering if it’s legal, crashed my NA r33 and just need a new shell but can only find Turbo ones
