  1. My mind is at a loss here, would like some light shed on this please and thank you Bought my self an rb25det neo wgnc34 to install on my a31. The engine came with an ecu and everything that is needed to get the car running. The engine is bone stock, i only have modified the exhaust, i have a 3 inch pipe all the way to the back with a magna flow muffler at the end. When the engine was installed the car ran great for 1 week then i started to notice some problems. Bad idle, loss of power, and sometimes the car will surge and would not let me pass 2.5-3 rpm. I changed the maf sensor and added new plugs, that got ride of the surging and the car is now running well, only problem is that its running super rich. The interesting part starts now. I though my car would need a tune and it should run fine. So i started to look at the ecu and the engine and doing research so i can get my self a compatible aftermarket ECU. While doing research i realized the ecu that is currently have on the car belongs to an NA stagea, is that possible? During the first week the car was getting into boost and i was feeling the turbo and hearing it spool and i can feel the car get into boost, is that possible with an NA ecu? Could my car be running rich because it has an ECU that is incorrect? The ecu number is 23713-0v711

  8. Hey guys, just thought I would introduce myself to everyone on the forums. Just bought a late 98' Stagea RS4S as my new daily and am absolutely loving it. First AWD car I have evr owned and First turbo car I have owned. My name is Michael and to be honest, in the past i never thought I would ever buy a nissan. Have been a die hard Honda fan for the last 10 years and in the last few years also found love for the E30 platform. Was driving an e30 as a daily for a couple of years and enjoying it, but needed some extra space and wanted something a bit different. Also wanted something that wasn't going to get bogged taking it down tracks to surf spots, so AWD was a must. This one popped up in QLD of all places (i am in melbourne) was at an import yard called Motorman imports, gave them a call and they seemed decent. Put the money down and had it towed down here. So far haven't had any issues but will be getting it checked out at a workshop probably next week just to make sure it is all up to scratch. Anyway here it is: Engine bay: Boost controller unit: on surf trip down to apollo bay Center console when i picked it up, had a non functional double din suzuki headunit and the climate control was mounted down where the blanking plate is sapposed to be... Re-organised center console, but now there is a gap above the coin trey section. I am unsure what is meant to go in that space, i think it is a blanking plate of some description but not sure. Will be looking for the part that go's there though. Also, the factory tripple guage unit is extremely sensitive when it comes to the connection block at the back of it, with one small touch it will either not work at all or the lights won't work, or one of the guages won't work. The contact between the connection block and circuit board are a bit dodgy... Another surprise found when taking inspecting the car after picking it up, MINES ECU: Already picked up a few mods but won't be getting too out of hand as it is meant to be a fun practical daily as well as a surf trip car on weekeds new gear knob: Cooling pro stealth front mount kit: It's a 98' RS4S, came with the SR3 drivers seat, a Blitz NUR spec exhaust and some 'A tech final speed gear-r' wheels (never heard of them...) But then when i picked the car up and sussed it out properly, I found a Blitz Electronic Boost controller as well as a 'Mines' ECU and a turbo timer Had 82000k's on the clock and seems to be running strong. So far have bought some Thule racks for surf trips as well as a cooling pro stealth front mount and nismo gear knob. Plan is to up the boost to 10psi and get it tuned and that's about it to be honest. For now anyway. The AWD turbo platform will be a learning curve for sure as I have never worked with boost befor, but looking forward to the challenge Some of you guys might know me from seeing my trackcar at winton possibly, K24 powered EM1 that I built myself (still own it but it doesn't get out much these days ) My other project I have at the moment is my E30 Touring, it is my weekend/project car This was my daily befor I bought the Stagea, when it was at its best anyway: Anyway, good to join a new forum and looking forward to coming out on some cruises etc

  11. FOR SALE 8/2002 Nissan Stagea Axis Autech Model. VIN: NM35311708 Engine: VQ25DET Color: White Trasmission: 5 speed Auto w/ tiptronic. Rego: Until April 2014 109xxx kms. Overview: Hey guys, I’ve not had this car for a year, and whilst it has been the most comfortable, and reliable car I've ever owned, my situation has changed with my fiancé purchasing a brand new car, and only now requiring one car for a daily commute. Paying 2 sets of insurance/fuel/maintenance is just not viable at this stage. I purchased this car from Ben at Northshore Prestige early this year around the 15/4/13. It had circa 104000kms when purchased, and I have put a further 4,000kms on it since owning. It is immaculate. The paint has no chips whatsoever. There is NO rust. Mechanically, it is A1. There is no creaks, rattles, sounds etc. Automatic gearbox feels strong. Being the Axis model, it also comes factory with a flared Autech styled bodykit, different grill, and from what I’ve been told, different suspension compared to non axis models. It comes with the beige leather interior (Not the crappy brown color) with heated seats, full electrics. The only issue that I have with it is that the CD Player has crapped itself. Radio/Tape player (lol)still works, and you can put CDs into the 6 stacker, but it will simply not play. Modifications: - 18" genuine Nissan ARX wheels. - EZlip front rubber lip. - 20% window tint on front 2 windows to match rear privacy glass. - 350Z Non Brembo slotted and dimpled rotors on the front. I’ve simply used it as a film car for my business, and a daily commuter to and from the Bank. It doesn't get thrashed whatsoever, and is serviced meticulously. Washed every 2 weeks, and a full detail done every 8-12 weeks. As far as I’m aware, at this stage, it is one of only 2 for sale in NSW. I have full approval papers from Department of Infrastructure and Transport, as well as Japanese Export Certificate in PDF format, provided by the dealer, if you would like to peruse it. PRICE: Looking for $15,990. Priced below market, and looking for a quick sale. Will not disappoint. Located in Seaforth, NSW, 2092. PICS: Please contact me on here via PM, or you can email me on shazzbanger (at) gmail (dot) com. Alternatively, you can contact me on zero four zero one two zero two five zero nine. If I am unable to answer, please leave a message and I will repsond as soon as I can. being a bank manager, it is sometimes hard to get to the phone all the time. Happy to accept SMS if that is your forte. Also happy to liase with potential buyer regarding auto vehicle inspection, or workshop inspection. Cheers, Shaz
  12. Hi Guys, A few questions here regarding the headlights on the M35. 1. For a while now I've had problems with the headlights cutting out (many times every time I drive it). It used to be only the passenger side lamp and figured I could swap the ballasts over to see if that's the problem however now it's both so I guess that isn't an option any more. I am assuming it's the ballast anyway but any thoughts as to how I would tell given that both cut out (at separate intervals - not at the same time). 2. Any one know what ballasts we can use? Preferably cheap ones? Or official model numbers? 3. I personal find the lamps pretty dull (doesn't help that you can't adjust them any higher than about 2ft in front of the car), any suggestions for a brighter bulb? 4. My passenger side parker lamp is also out, does anyone know the model number or aftermarket options? Sorry about all the questions but any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks all,

  19. hi all, ive reciently brought a 2002 stagea. im looking to firstly get the fuel consumption down and secondly get the power up. i thought there would be more grunt available from the 2.5 V6 and 16.3 liters per 100 in town seems too heavy. (im getting 9.5 on the open rd) ;-) ive just done the plugs and fuel filter and service - no change. the mech put it on the dianogstic and says the o2 senson is due. research shows the main reason will be the o2 sensor. also possible fixes: new temp sensor high tyre pressures 98 octane (ive been thinking 91 would be cheaper) id like you views on the above and any other tips does it have 1,2 or 4 o2 sensors? where to buy? http://o2sensors.com...5&engineID=3037 $200 each http://www.amayama.c...h/?q=22690AL600 varyies on oem or copys.. are non nissan parts ok? thanks for your input. jim
  20. Hi all, as it says about I'm trying to find options for replacement front bars for the stag. Its got bc racing coilovers and the bar sticks out way to far and loves eating the ground on any chance it gets. Are there any places selling a kit that has more clearance or has less over hang on the front or am I better off taking it in and getting it cut back and reshaped? Thanks in advance for the advice

  22. Sorry for the complete noob question but I wanted to be sure before I ordered them and can't find an answer on the site. I have a 2003 m35 250t rs4, are these the right model numbers for the QFM A1RM brake pads: Front: http://gslrallysport.com/au/qfm-db1232a1rm-brake-pads.html Rear: http://gslrallysport.com/au/brakes/brake-pads/db1509a1rm-qfm-a1rm-brake-pads.html thanks!
  23. Morning chaps. Yesterday, I took delivery of my new 2002 Nissan Stagea Axis Autech model from Northshore Prestige. Having recently sold my R34 Skyline due to not being able to fit film gear in the Liner, I went on the search for a new car. I was looking for something cool, auto, with a bit of power, upgradeability, comfort and most of all, space to fit all the things. After having driven a few different cards (VE Wagon, Legnum, etc) I went and saw Ben from Northshore Prestige, and took the car for a drive. It basically ticked all the boxes, and I left a deposit on it that day. Its done 104ks. After having the car for 1 day, my initial thoughts are as follows. 1) The suspension/body roll is horrible. I will definitely be investing in some swaybars to stiffen the body roll up a little bit. 2) The seating position is rather high. I would ideally like to put some lower seats in, but its not a HUGE issue. 3) The auto gearbox is one of the most sluggish POS's that I have ever experienced. This is something that will definitely get attended too. 4) The car feels very restricted. I would imagine freeing up the intake and exhaust will make it breath much better. Other then that, I'm really happy with it. It talks to me in Japanese everytime I turn the car on as well, which was pretty unexpected at first. I'd like to get a new dash facia so that I can fit an aftermarket head unit with bluetooth and ipod connectivity as well. Can anyone tell me what wheels these are? They seem to be factory Nissan 18"s. Pics: (I will get some better ones this weekend, these are the dealer photos) Cheers, Shaz
  24. Hi Guys and Gals, I am regrettably selling my 2001 Nissan M35 ARX-Four Stagea. I have owned this car since 2008, and imported the car from Japan myself. In this time its been nothing but reliable and a joy to own. The car has done 123,000km. I have since been given a work car, so the Stagea has to go to help pay for the house For those of you who don't know about the features of the M35 ARX-Four - The car has awesome power from the 2.5L V6 Turbo, and the ATTESA ET-S all wheel drive and rear wheel steering is fantastic through the corners and great off road as well. Inside, the car has full leather, auto headlights, heated and electric front seats, six stacker CD, climate control, rear view mirrors that dip when in reverse and fold shut when the car is locked. The rear seats fold fully flat from handles within the boot and creates a huge luggage bay. The car has done many country trips, and this is one of the areas the car excels. Its very comfortable on long distances and the powerful engine makes overtaking an ease. Storage is also impressive with a huge boot along with further storage in pockets and beneath the boot floor. Normally the ARX has black arches and guards, but I have had mine painted the body colour which in my opinion looks a lot better. The radio does not work as standard with Aus frequencies, but I have installed a frequency modifier which receives all the stations. Also included with this car are roof racks. There were no off the shelf roof rack kits that fit the NM35, so I have modified the brackets to take an X-Trail rack foot bolt pattern. These racks are easily removable in a few minutes. *The bike carriers shown in some photos are not included*. The car has recently had a full service, with all drive belts replaced, engine oil and filter, transmission oils and all diff oils, spark plugs, air filter and fuel filter. There is no timing belt to change in this car as it uses a timing chain. Also replaced recently are the brake pads and a full brake bleed. During my ownership I have also put on new front slotted rotors. The car has 245/50 R18 Khumo Ecsta KU31 tyres with 60% life left. I am asking $12,500 for it, but I am negotiable so feel free to make me a reasonable offer! Thanks, Brendan
  25. Hey everyone. I just thought I would post up a thread with the build progress of my M35. Its no 600hp monster, but I wanted a daily driver that was reliable but still fun to drive on the weekends. A big thanks goes out to a few specific members of SAU who helped along the way - Craig, Andy, Dale & Scotty. Its been awesome having your help and knowledge! It all started with a pretty much box stock M35 (Had some shorter springs and G35 wheels). First things first, I wanted to make it a little tougher looking, so I painted the headlights black and decided to cover up the top half of the 'volvo' looking tail lights. After enjoying it for a few weeks I had the Language conversion done and also found that the standard rotors began to warp once again after machining... but that was an easy fix with these... I had to pick up some wider wheels to clear the new brakes.. Before; After The difference was massive. Pulling up a 2 tone car with these standard brakes was never going to go well - Part 2 to follow
