Recommended Posts

I am off to Tokyo in April and was wondering if anyone knew where the best place to by things like cams might be?

I have a mate who lives there but when I ask him to get pricing for me its always more expensive then nengun etc...

I don't know for sure, but I don't think you would do much better than Nengun on prices when in Japan. I was always suprised when in Japan how few performance cars you see on the road, and the ones you do see seem to be more often European performance cars. In Australia it seems like every 10th car you see on the roads is a Skyline / Silvia / Supra! :laugh:

but not very cheap. and not that much range of performance parts. certainly you'd never see cams there.

best way is mail order. don't waste to much time in japan trying to save a few bux on parts unless you really know what you're doing, and can speak enough japanese to bargain etc.

also, moved to japan.

yeah, carrying them will be a bitch too. far better to just enjoy your holiday. :laugh: seriously with internet ordering the way it is now it truly is a global ecconomy. plus there is no massive "cheap skyline performance parts r us" stores in tokyo. there are good performance stores, but they wont have what you want in stock anyway.

I know this is a bit off topic, but is a "street price" for a set of cams in Australia? Here in the states they are about 960 AUD.

order parts off yahoo, get them shipped to your friends then ship them to your self... prolly the cheapest way...

upgarage has some descent stuff.. if they have a Autobacs used parts shop... not to many of them but they have good prices, hopefully they will get bigger cause they will cause upgarage to have some competition and hopefully have to compete and lowere there prices..
