Getting My Car Driveable For Christmas!

Young GT-R

Recommended Posts

Spoke to Kutzie yesterday and he can squeeze me in for a dyno tune next thusday.

Those of you who don't know me, my R31 coupe has been off the road for 6 months (and it's my daily driver)

It's still in pieces and I have put an aussie R31 wiring loom in it and some engine mods etc etc.

I hope to see you all on the roads very soon, it's like a little kid at christmas.

Should be 250rwkw - 270rwkw and a grin from ear to ear.

i'm in the same boat. Got the engine & gbox on jackstands, i've got 1 turbo hooked up tonight, and should get the otherone on tomorrow night, then put the engine back in on the weekend. And i'm hoping i get my brakes back to put on next week.

Been frigging round on mine for 6 months too.

ohhh i miss driving it.

yeah it was a great ride, pitty about my ctack, that wat the same day Matty got his big speeding fine and had to go to cort. LOL.

Bikes, cars, all the same, the're and addiction.

NOPE not for me, i just dont get the same enjoyment from a car as that of a bike.

Probably cause i cant do half of what i do on a bike in a car >_<

DAMN IT i want another bike :D

Yep i will add to the list as well mines been off the road now for 7 months putting a RB25 in my R32 im just hoping its worth the wait

:laugh: for your sake Ray so do i.

Im sure it will be worth it, but once its done you need to start driving the thing.

I've only seen it 3 times since you have starting building that car , now i know its not a daily but its an RB.

For gods sake man it deserves a flogging atleast once a week :D

Is it back in Tassie yet and how much more have to you got to go till it see's the road again???

Tell me about it. I fried my clutch on suday, and if it wasn't for Aaron form Slide Performance, i would not have a clutch till after the new year. Hopefully mine will be here tomorrow, and then get it in over night.

nope, not nana spec, it's just not Wog Proof. LOL.

Well it's a bit hard to drive on two wheels but i'll try.

Well yes it is rather hard to drive a car on 2 wheels, but then again you could do what Pat does and do a lap of Basky on 2 wheels :(

    • 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.
