Recommended Posts

Hopefully someone might be of assistance.. i'm from Sydney, currently in melbourne for work over the next couple of weeks and i was unable to service my car before leaving (major service is due) would anyone be able to recommend a quality joint, that won't break the budget? Im staying in St kilda. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks guys this is awesome. I'm moving from Syd to Melb this weekend, and feel like some lost migrant, this will help me great in trying to settle down and finding a trusted person to touch my car.

I'll be in the Preston area for a few months, so if anyone friendly is near by there for a chat about local shops and skylines, I'll be free :)

I was in the same boat when i moved down to Melb few year ago. Found a workshop called NT Performance Turbocharging that a friend mentioned. Have been going there ever since. Its run by a father and son team, Simon has got to be one of the best tuners i know having been to quite a few! They really know their stuff and they have been around for years !

Here's their contact details, tell them Steve with the R34 GTR gave you their details,

    • If I was in 'merica I would get this new goodness delivered in a crate and bash it in the hole  
    • They don't survive abuse bwith big power and a lot of AWD, but 285kw should not be an issue. I'd be looking for any sloppyiness between the driveshaft at the xfer case all the way to the front hubs, I think something is moving that is causing additional shock and the diff is the weak link
    • The alternator was replaced because I've had another Nissan do the same thing. Dash and all accessories go out, but car still turns over and runs. Verdict was a bad alternator. I took the same approach with this one only instead of sticking with the same 80-90 amp alternator I upgraded it to a 140 amp.  That's the problem with owning pre-owned cars. You never know what the previous owner did/hacked up. I figured this would be the along the lines of the replies I'd get though. Thanks for the help.  I'm open to other suggestions or recommendations. I appreciate the help in advance. 
    • So..... I have a s15 Silvia that we converted awd by chopping up a gts-4 shell..  Car makes about 500hp to the wheels...  Cars fitted with a  twin disc spec clutch and the awd is controlled by a ets pro..  Awd works perfect... Launched the car couple of times while the awd controller was in auto mode and all was fine.. Launched the car manual mode full awd  front diff survived 2 launch.. Replaced the spider gears that were damaged launched the car again and still managed to strip the spider gears again..    At this point I'm looking at getting a os giken lsd....  I've never heard of these diff breaking this easily.. At the time of launch the car was down on boost only making around 380hp....  The diff front and back ratio are the same.... Can something else be causing the gears to break so easily or I'm I just having bad luck with 2 worn out differential 
    • I found their services poor 1. on a few occasions they were unable to locate my work address, unlike every other courier service 2. they had some items listed for delivery that day, but item was not delivered for weeks 3. I had to head into their distribution center on 2 occasions and pick them up from there 4. items have been returned to sender a. Couldn't find address b. They never called to contact number supplied c. Claimed item was delivered, only for me to find that the item was returned to sender d. Claimed the item was delivered when it wasn't, claimed courier had the item signed for, but when questioned and we asked for evidence of this, it turned out, after a day or two, they found the item, to which I had to head into their distribution center  Opinions may vary
