The Shire


PSI Parts
 Share

Recommended Posts

I have just moved into the Shire (Cronulla to be exact, although PSI Parts is still based and run from Melbourne) and wondering what Performance shops are around? I'm keen to get to know other people in the area and hopefully provide a great level of service for those in the area.

I have been told about GFS Performance, and noticed that they mainly focus in Fords and Subaru's. Has anyone been there and have any comments?

Just as a side not, there seems to be some very nice R32 GTRs and S15s floating around, and it seems the car scene in NSW is by far more alive than in Melbourne. :P

That's something I've noticed on my multiple trips to Melbourne. You just don't get the same kind (both in terms of number, and "quality") of modified cars than in Sydney.

I use "quality" very subjectively, given the shitboxes some people think are cool to drive through the CBD of Sydney on a Friday or Saturday night, but having gone through Chapel St or St Kilda on a Saturday night its nowhere near the same in terms of the number of bodykitted, lowered, chromied-up econoboxes you see crawling past the shops and clubs.

Melbourne cops are probably bigger pricks than Sydney ones.

With that 3km/hr speed limit leeway, and the "only one intake mod allowed" rule, they're more likely to pull you over and more likely to defect you.

I reckon most of the cops in Australia are tight. The culture here seems to be very anti car enthusiast, and it doesn't help when tabloids write shit in their newspapers.

Talking to the guys I know in Brisbane / Gold Coast its not much better. Up north its even worse. If you're young and you're not in a sports car that's either a Falcodore or some classic American car (I realise that they're not sports cars, but I'm just repeating their mentality), you tend to get the short end of the stick from everyone.

Yeah I'm not worried about parts, as thats what our company does :)

Thanks for all your comments fellas, its really appreciated.

Growing up in the car scene in Melbourne, it's quite a drastic change to Sydney. The blokes I have gotten to know in Melbourne focus mainly on things under the bonnet, however going to Autosalon in Sydney and seeing cars on the street its pretty clear that exteriors seem to get more attention. Not sure of the main reason for this, but it probably has something to do police and not having annual RWC for rego.

For those who live in the area, hopefully I catch you at one of the next NSW SAU days.

Yeah I know, and Victoria doesn't. I probably should have made my point a little clearer. I was trying to say people in Vic can make the exterior look stock and not draw too much attention, yet have a worked monster hiding underneath the bonnet and not have to worry about going back to stock for your annual RWC.

Hence the reason I'm going to register my car in Vic :(

yes, annual pink slips are just to check your brakes work, your tires aren't bald, and your headlights and indicators work. mods barely come into it.

as for exterior mods, well autosalon is based in that kind of stuff.

personally i've owne a few performance cars and none of them have ever had any non-standard body work, or out there paint, but all were modified for more power. same story with all of my friends. :P

    • Your stuff look much better than the original stuff I used on my tri-y headers, which didn't survive the swap, that did work OK though, but currently the headers are only ceramic coating, which, while it is meant to be the bees knees, it really only reduces temps by "not alot" and is more for protecting the mild steel pipes The new stuff is meant to maintain an "air gap" which "apparently" helps the insulation LOL In other news I'm taking it into Autotech next week for them to have a look at the RaceTCS, the spot where I want it, and the program "thingie" that is on my lap top computa which you would know as it is basically the same thing as your Racelogic  I'm really keen to get this fitted  
    • OK, a couple of questions arise. Are you suggesting that you want to swap to the S2 ECU so that you can Nistune it? Because....none of the R33 ECUs can be Nistuned. What would an ATESSA controller do to help? You have no ATESSA. Beyond that, the S1 and S2 ECU pinouts are nearly identical, as far as I can remember. A quick look around on SAU yields the following for S1. As I said, almost all of it is identical. I think there might be a few changes around the AFM and the ECCS relay, not much else. There's not functionally anything particularly different between a manual and auto ECU pinout. Can run a manual engine on an auto ECU quite trivially, for example.
    • Hey guys Was recently replacing the water pump and timing belt. Came across one of the washers for the timing gear and balancer were bent. Just wondering how that would of happened
    • Recently destroyed the front driver ABS wheel speed sensor on my ENR34 due to the iron knuckle rusting and seizing the sensor head. The other one on the passenger side has been soaking in penetrant for a few days, but I fully expect the same thing to occur. The wheel speed sensors seem to be specific to the AWD applications, and likewise the more readily available units from ER34s and S/Z chassis are not the same. An OEM unit seems to be available at $200 USD/ea, which is not ideal, but still fine. But if I'm in this boat in the future, those might not be available.   Does anyone know of any wheel speed sensor that uses the same head as the R34 GTR that could be used? Not overly concerned with cable lengths as wiring will be redone to accommodate PMU wiring.
    • Isn't this at least partially due to the way the dyno run was done? I'm used to seeing runs where they start as low as 1500 rpm to see how boost develops over the 2000-3000 rpm range. Seeing the torque curve fall on its face by 6000 RPM similar to this chart gives me some confidence that this run wasn't just entirely make-believe:
