-=HICAS THREADS=-

Some general info first-

HICAS is Nissans 4 wheel steer system that alters the angle of the rear wheels by about 1 degree while cornering and when it goes wrong it can leave the driver with an uneasy feeling about the rear of the car. It is advised to either LOCK or completely REMOVE the system. R32 Skylines have hydrolic HICAS whereas R33 and later Skylines have electronic HICAS. Your problems may be easily fixed with checking power steering fluid level.

Q. Whats this HICAS light on my dash?

Hi all

I'm looking at an R33 GTR.

My wife and I want a fun car we and the kids can enjoy on weekends.

I have one child in a booster seat (6 years old) and one in a baby seat (3 years old) for a couple more years.

Will the baby seat fit in the back of the GTR or am I fantasizing?

Any advice would be appreciated as I'd rather the GTR than an EVO.

Cheers

Muzz.

The R33 GTR was based on the Nissan Laurel platform Muzz and thus, longer than the R32 & R34; especially the rear seat area - so I think you might be alright.

When you trial an R33 GTR, you'll do a test fit of course.

As with all coupes, lifting a child out of the back seat requires a good back.

It's kind of a weird review-- I'm not necessarily reviewing the book, because I haven't read the book. I'm reviewing the sample. In some cases, the samples available on Amazon aren't worth downloading. Too much frontmatter means less of the actual book to read and sample.

Hi all , new to SAU ..was more old school Datto in younger years although still have a soft spot for a tidy modded 510 but am now starting to research GTR's as am older and like the idea of owning both a classic and quick car .. will be doing some research on here so bear with me if I ask newbie type questions at times ..wont be too daft I hope but any positive feedback from the crew here would be greatly appreciated as I wade through pro's and cons of each step to finding/buying/modifying it. at this stage am located about an hour from Newcastle so any ideas for good yards to go suss out would be great. only have time on my hands atm as am between jobs so to speak

Thanks again guys and awesome to be around fellow petro-files with damn fine taste in cars ...

Hehe...

Several yards have been under investigation of late Jasen.

There's a thread I started SAU > Importing Vehicles > If You're Happy With Your Import Car, Who Brought It In?

...or something like that.

I did a head count.

Hope this helps a bit.

    • Been nothing happening for a while as got the sil80 going and been trying to decide what direction to go but have been doing the important things like painting cam cover and making heat shield for the turbo.  Fitted some more lights to the work area in the shed and converted to LEDs. Heaps better with the extra lights.  Pulled out the ecu and loom this week to start planning a new loom with extra sensors and inputs.  Considering going DBW as liking it on the other car. So will have to send ecu back to link for modding.  Car is booked in to get the engine bay and under side blasted end of July so have to get a move on stripping. 
    • Yep - I have had three different EFR's - and still run an 8474.  All have had this casting issue and I didn't like it either.   The Turbo's perform well - but its disappointing to see this lack of quality control - and yes it does make you naturally wonder if there are other problems that you can't see. I think that Borg Warners attitude to "its fine, and doesn't stop it working" is not a good thing.  As others above have said, other manufacturers seem to get their castings nice and tidy and you would expect that the top of their line be well finished.   Maybe BW should have a read of this thread and think about it for Version 2.0.     PS.  I've had 8374 and 8474 back to back on same engine - and I can say that in my experience the 8474 definitely does not spool as quickly as the 8374.   I can say this from dyno charts, seat of the pants feel, logging and track times.   The 8474 does exactly what you would expect:  Spools a bit later (200-300rpm), and makes a bit more power up top.         
    • Will do, thanks.   Do you know from memory which of these two plug (red marker) is for reverse switch ? also what is other one for ?  
    • The 20DET RWD box and the 26/20DET AWD box both have a reverse switch. The reverse switch wiring will definitely be on the diagram. I'm 2000km away from my copy of the manual, so can't easily look for you. Keep looking.
    • Just so people know it's not an isolated incident! This is my brand new compressor cover from a 8374 alloy supercore that I purchased to replace my old turbo which has a slight bearing noise which I put down to oil starvation due to a restrictor put in the line from the Fabricator even though it was clearly stated not to run one with this turbo. Not only did the new cover look like shit the new turbo was overly "tight" from factory and after numerous phone calls and diagnostics with GCG I was told it was fine and to run it... Did a few warm up laps at Wakefield Part and just about melted the cold side piping and cooler due to the turbo issue as it was glowing hot! Took the turbo back to GCG for warranty repairs and had it stripped, assessed and re-assembled with no fault found but now the turbo spins freely and spools down as it should. Car had not been run on a track since that day as I have zero confidence in the setup and I am strongly considering selling the whole hot side and going back to a single gate, single scroll basic setup to remove potential failure points! The turbo was only one of many issues with my cars setup, since the build it has lifted the head, gates have come loose, gate lines/fittings have melted or broken and the thing wont keep oil in the engine! The reason my car hasn't seen the track in nearly 2 years is shonky workmanship in a big $ build and left hanging with an expensive POS that I can't drive for more than a session! I will build it back up again and get it on track soon but I doubt it will be with an EFR still fitted! End of rant..... Actually probably not..... 🤬
