Need Specialist Advice


Recommended Posts

Alrite fellas I need some ideas,

im gonna be paying for the car on wednesday it looks like it when the report from the RAA comes to me 2moro night. then ill have 3 or so grande left over to mod it a bit, its sitting at 153kw and it has aftermarket air filter and after market exhaust. has 2 BOV sitting in it too but 1 is disconnected. I am getting rid of the blitz BOV and the other one (i forget what it is cause i am skeptical) but I'm asking the people. what would you do to a stockie when u got 3 grande. and no i dont want after market rims n shit cause i get free rubber for the stock rim size from bridgestone. (family rates pretty much). im not big on show i mean ill lower it a bit but im more interested in power, and sleeper look. Also, to make this SA specific, who are the guys to see for their individual specialities on mods.

would suspension/ FMIC and external waste gate be on the order top of the list?

why an external gate....................you do know what they are?

You've basically answered your own questions. See sydneykid for the groupbuy on suspension and one of the sponsors will do you a good deal on an intercooler kit which should leave you some cash to get it installed if your not too mechanically minded and if you have enough free cash get a fuel pump.

Ok, here is the stock list you need to get the power you want

Exhaust - (u have it already) but make sure you have a split dump pipe on it

Cold air intake - You could add a pod in a box (ie Maxx's group buy) or just get a decent panel filter for the stock box (good for over 200rwkw and the cheapest option)

Intercooler - Dont need anything too special, just a reasonable front mout will do the job.

Boost controller - a simple bleed valve if the budget is tight, but some of the electronic ones are available at great prices (especially second hand) and are well worth the cost as they offer much etter control and protect against oost spikes and drop off.

Fuel pump - if yours is stock and the car has over 80,000km its probably going to struggle with the bigger horsepower, so check it out and replace if necessary

Electronic fuel and ignition management - I prefer the PFC, but their are other options (again second hand is fine)

Dyno the whole lot once all of this has been installed.

As mentioned SydneyKid has a great group buy on suspension, but if cash is running out at least invest in a set of pinapples.

This setup also gives you a sound base if you want more power in the future - just add a new turbo, and perhaps bigger injectors or a rising rate fuel regulator.

If the car is close to 100,000km you will also need some cash for a new timing belt and water pump.

Hope this helps.

go with 4door_sleeper

powerFc first and foremost without that you wont be tunning very much

fuel pump to give tuning more juice

boost controller well for more boost

Thanks for this guys, i will remember it, will follow this advice for any skyline i end up getting, either the one 2moro or if that doesnt work out, the stock one ill buy after christmas.

Thats the way SAZilla... Don't jump in to buying something if it doesn't 'feel right' Even though its so hard not too. ;)
