Parts Quality


Recommended Posts

Hi. ..I am a Skyline owner from the UK. I am looking to upgrade my car by buying parts from Australian companys as they all seem cheaper than the UK. I have noticed a lot of cheap parts over here but was a little concerned about the quality of some of the Parts. IE Monsta Turbo's, Manifolds, Elbows. etc. Can you guys give us an idea of which companys to steer clear of. :)

Is it really going to work out cheaper once you ship it to the UK. I can't imagine your government will let you import the parts without paying some form of tax either. I'd check that out if I were you. International shipping on large/heavy items isn't cheap mate.

I thought about the tax issue's . But i have seen Turbo's for around 600-800 Aus dollers advertised on here .

and Monsta performance on Ebay

That is cheap even with import duty & Tax providing the quality of the item is ok & the turbo can do the job i want it to do i would be interested in buy them. In the UK we are starting to get cheap chinese ( some of poor quality) turbo's,manifolds,Fmic, etc coming from the USA via Ebay( XS Power, SS Autochrome) So i did not want to buy one of them from Aus. :)

Monsta performance on Ebay

I would personally stay clear from MOnsta Performance on EBAY,

Just a bad experience thats alll,

Bought a SHORT shifter for my car,

when fitted, it wasnt short, same size as the factory and when fitted, its 5 times harder to put in gear, Now i got a left hand bigger then me right hand. LOL :P

Cheers,

I suppose you get what you pay for . You guys seem to have more choice than we do in the UK which probably keeps the price down a little. Although the internet is helping us source cheaper parts but you still have to be wary of cheap & fake parts. I have been looking for turbo & injector upgrades for a while and was looking for something to bolt straight on to my R33 gtst :P

    • The boy crashed his Patrol a while ago, so he is now driving his mum's ASX and she is driving my Honda I initially said he could have the Honda to drive around (he's a good kid currently training at the police academy), but, his mum was quick in saying that he "will" take the ASX and she will take the Honda, he was a bit upset with that, he rates the manual Honda more than the automatic ASX (mums taxi), and I'm getting the feeling she enjoys thrashing the manual Honda around In other news, I'm looking at a MX5 NB series 2 on Saturday  I always loved my NB series 1, but after stripping it down because I'm a idiot it wasn't fun cruising or driving around daily, and Jackie refused to drive it, which was an issue if we went out, because her refusing to drive it meant I lost my designated driver if we went to a party, or dinner, or...... basically anywhere where I could get a glow on Yes yes, I may need a new job if I decide to buy https://www.seek.com.au/apprentice-hairdresser-jobs/in-All-Sydney-NSW Plus giving the Honda to the boy, which is my cunning plan, will give me enough wifey type credits to turn up in another car Meh
    • Yeah I've just been checking it out on GTR registry and its the emerald green pearl (DS0) and only 610 made for S1 RS-Four V (if i'm understanding correctly) so I feel obliged to restore the paint to as close to original as possible!
    • Thankyou, sir! Yeah I'm having a lot of fun rewiring bits of the car. I used to dislike wiring a lot before, I dont like it any more but it is getting easier
