  1. hey everyone, long time reader first time poster. before i start ill just let you know I'm no mechanic or car wiz! trying to learn though so i bought my first car (1993 r33 gts) when i was 17 and it is still my current car to this day being the third owner since imported. as the laws in my state don't allow high powered vehicles on P plates i opted for the NA version as I've always loved skylines and i found one for a good deal. over these 4 years I've done a fair bit of work to the car because i wanted it to be the best version of itself, the main things being brand new turbo gearbox with short shifter, heavy duty clutch, full body kit, new wheels, bc racing coilovers, moulded fenders, interior work and much more, fair to say this car is in way better shape now than when i bought it. i spent a while trying to make this car easy to swap a new engine into when I'm on my full license but I've read forums saying "no point" or "just sell it and buy a turbo its not worth the effort" so i guess my question is do you guys think it can be a reliable enough swap that's worth doing if done right or just f**k it off and buy a new car? ps. every time people look up my rego at car stores, mechanics etc. it comes back as a gtst so i think it was possibly imported as a gtst and has been swapped out prior to me owning it, as I've been told i also have all the gtst badges on my car.
  2. Long Story Short. I have for straight swap an R34 GTT HKS Exhaust, its in awesome condition, I am after the stock exhaust as I got defected and have to have the car checked over on Monday, fair warning if you get a pr*ck of a cop like I did they may get you for it, its a fantastic sounding exhaust and this trade is a wrought in my case but a win for whoever can get to me first. Ill even do the swap right there and then for free. Your exhaust has to be standard for the R34 GTT Coupe, and it has to be in decent condition, I wont take something full of holes or damaged etc, I am located in Thornton NSW and will need this done this weekend (long shot I know) Possibly during the week if someone is really serious and I can organise it. My loss is your gain. Cheers
  3. Hey all, New to the SAU forum here. I've recently purchased a 1989 r32gts (nonturbo) auto for $2k Pretty stock except the usual, pod filter exhaust, wheels.. it seem like the sump is f**ked in my car (no way to tell other then it's been bent in by a jack i guess) and apparently you have to lift the engine out a little to be able to access the sump to remove it. if this is the case, i'll be wanting to remove the rb20 and replace it for a rb25, i have a mate who want the rb20 so no hassles getting rid of it. i was going to the swap regardless but if i have to replace the sump i was thinking of doing it sooner. i have seen all the threads with pretty much everything on how to do the swap,yet i wouldn't be comforrtable doing it myself as i have very little mechanical knowledge, ( I'm learning!) if there is anyone on here who can inform me on how much a rb25de would cost, and also if there is anyone on here who would be able to help with the conversion that would be great. it'll most likely be done on my driveway lol. Please leave me with some replys! Thanks guys.
  4. V35 VQ25DD manual trans swap So I'm new to here, and I hope people still monitor this forum. I am posting for a buddy. He just partially swapped the 25DD to manual 6 speed (from the 350z). After the swap, he is having crazy ABS problems. He will be driving, then all the sudden the ABS will kick in out of the blue and the breaks pulsate as if you are depressing the brakes even though your not. He took he ABS fuse and removed the two slated in the engine bay as for the abs. Problem still exists. This happens at random times and if you stop and shut off the car, it will reset. Btw, this was the same issue we saw on a VQ35 on a manual way, but the ECU in the 35 was less straight forward, and it was assumed the problem resided in one of the couple ECUs on the VQ35. If you know someone who did a 25 manual trans conversion, or know the answer please help me

  8. I apologize for the lack of photos, I'm just putting my feelers out to see if there is enough interest. If I get some decent offers I'll have the car detailed and re-post with some new photos. The photo is old but the only difference is a new GTR spoiler, colour matched. Absolutely regretful sale, I am selling because I am moving back to Cairns in 6-8 weeks and starting full time uni. Also now have a permanent back Injury which mates it extremely difficult to get in and out of a low car. I purchased the car back in 2009 off a guy who kept the car immaculate and has provided a folder with with a detailed service history and receipts. It has never seen the track and never been drifted. It's pretty much stock apart from a few minor mods. Heavy duty clutch GTR spoiler $2000 worth of audio - head deck, speakers, amp, 12 inch Alpine Type R sub in boot Pod filter (will include stock airbox and filter) Flood gate BOV HICAS lockout bar Will provide roadworthy and 12 months rego. 150000 k's The car has been a dream to own and I've never had a major problem. I've never raced or drifted it, had it serviced every 10000 k's. Currently selling the car out of Brisbane but can take the car to Cairns with me if I get the right offer. $8000 negotiable Willing to swap (also have an 07 GSXR 750 that I love to bits, but willing swap the r33 and bike for something worth 18k+) Mobile: 0426255586 Email: getto88@live.com Cheers, Jake.

  11. Ok so after many years of abuse my poor re5r01a auto box has decided to spit second gear. So an now faced with a decision: 1. Rebuild re5 2. Buy a new re5 3. Buy an re4 as these boxes only came behind the 33 and 32 non turbos (as far as I know) they are quite hard to find I imagine (if you have one pm me). So my question is can the re4 (which is basically every auto behind 32/33 skylines be slotted in im its place ie will the loom match up and be able to work successfully? Thanks,

  14. so my R32 GT-R developed a light load metallic rattling sound a few months ago, i drove it occasionally knowing i'd most likely be up for a new engine soon. the time has come. the sound is bottom end and getting louder and deeper it's a 1989 gt-r so i was wanting to upgrade to at least a late model rb26 for the better oil pump drive gear and just wondering what problems i will come across. if i go late model 32 gtr engine, will the early push type clutch gearbox bolt up the same? what if i ended up finding an r33 gtr engine? will i have problems then? if i upgrade to a late model 32 or 33 engine, will my ecu be fine? or will i need the r33 ecu if i upgrade to a 33 engine? are there any known hassles in this department of changing to a later model motor? is it best to just rebuild mine? (nearly a 3rd year apprentice mechanic and would love the challenge but it's not beneficial if the late model upgrade is worth it) if i go an r33 engine, is the front diff the same? or will i need to swap the internals from my diff to the new sump? or just swap the whole sump over? any help you can offer would be great!! álso, any reccomendations on where to buy a new engine from that i can trust will be good? or should i consider buying a new bottom end only and swapping my head over? if that's a better option, will my head be compatible with all model rb26 bottom ends?
  15. Hi everyone, I just bought a Nissan Skyline R34 GT that has a Rb25de NA motor which they turbo it with an ebay turbo. So the previous guy blew the block due to high compression and I bought it from him. I recently took the motor out and swapped a Rb25det Neo. I had to rewire all the harness to fit because of the previous NA motor which it doesnt have the same connectors as the neo. Now the I dont have a oil temp wire to connect. I was wondering if anyone had an extra oil temp wire and oil pressure sensor. I want to know if anyone has done a swap from a N/A into a Neo turbo. Please tell me about your experience and how you made it work. Thanks!

  19. 240z with an RB30DET, Vic roads registration issues Dear Sau Community, I am planning on swapping an RB30DET into a 240z. I was wondering if anyone can see any blatant breaches of any VicRoads or Epa laws? I have read on here a Skyline with an RB30DET is illegal due to a modern Skylines emission standards and how it is a larger engine. I see the reasons that were explained there but do they still apply to a much older 240z? I plan on getting an RB30E engine block and replacing the head with a twin cam one from an RB25 skyline. Due to the engine being newer, having EFI, possessing double the valves, crossflow design and a better spark plug position it would be much more environmentally friendly than an older carburated engine despite it being 0.6L bigger than the L24. Does anyone know if the EPA has an issue with this? Maybe some turbocharging action could come later but for now, the swap is the biggest issue. It would also be very much appreciated to hear from anyone knows someone or has done it themselves who has tried and either failed or succeeded, your knowledge on the topic would be a great help. Also, anyone who has a completely legal RB swap in an S30 would be awesome too. I wait for your replies with bated breath. Regards, JSBlueGuy

  23. Late rb25det s2 (s3?) swap no start :( So i have an 1990 r32 gtst at the end of a very late rb25det s2 swap, the 25 came with a neo style CAS. I kept my rb20 gear box, and ecu (nistune type 2 board with rb25)for some reason my check engine light does not come on at all, and i can not put the ecu in dignostic mode. I am using my 20 loom, using my 20 coils, ignitor and harness, on the cas i have swap the wiring to match the neo style pin out and i have strong spark on 1, 2, and 3 but starts to die after that almost to almost nothing. Im getting fuel and pump primes when get is turn to "ON" injector pulse i can hear and feel it when i turn the cas by hand. It cranks but does not run. Still using the rb25 s2 TPS. I am out of ideas at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
