Hey guys

First of all i would like to say thanks for all the info everyone has shared here it has helped me alot although i havent been posting i have been watching you all :)!! Neways down to business! I have purchased a silver 97 Autech 260rs Stagea!! The beast is being shipped this week then it comes to Brissy to be complianced. It has 80,0000ks on the clock and is as stock as a rock! (which i am very happy about) I cant wait till its ready and will be keen for cruises when ever and where ever from sunny coast to the gold coast! I hope to see some of you guys out on cruise nights! There are some pics attached (hope it worked). As for mods I am planning to get around 360rwkw with all the good stuff, new turbos, fmic, afm, injectors, cams, powerfc etc etc etc this will take some time as a uni student working part time is difficult but i will save my dosh ^^

Chris from Boostimports.com.au handled my importing and did all the organising and chasing for me and i have to say it was PERFECT, so easy everything was handled brilliantly and i cant recommend the guys at Boost Imports enough!! A++++

Cant wait to see some of you on the streets!

Cheers

carter

do they all have the strip between the speedo and tacho, like the auto's have to show you what gear you are in?

just looks weird seeing it in a MANUAL 260rs..

Hey Carter, Very nice pick-up there, one of the best Autech's that I've seen. Looks ultra good in Silver, (and fairly unusual for a 260RS). Very clean car.... any engine bay pics?

Welcome to the fray...... enjoy your new toy! oh the waiting..... worse than being 6 and waiting for Xmas!! :ninja:

Cheers guys!

I live in Burbank close to Mt Gravatt Capalaba Road. Yeah i was lucky that i got such a clean one, it was my luck that Chris had a trip scheduled to Japan like a week before i asked him to find me one :D So he found the best one he could in person (makes me feel alot better rather than blind importing ^^). There are engine bay pics at Chris's office ill get them emailed to me, but the engine bay is just as schmick as the outside and it started and drove like a dream so no worries there.

Yeah the wait is a bitch :( Its annoying opening up My Documents and seeing the folder preview of all the pics... torture really :P Yeah as i said cruise anytime anywhere aslong as i dont have work ^^.

Thanks for the replies!

carter

p.s. Micah, Chopper my cattle dog will be waiting for you :P :laughing-smiley-014: :D

sweet car wish mine was 260rs. good luck with getting to 350rwkw plan.

i was about to reply only Mungel had already mentioned it

i think your car is not quite as stock as you think the auto cluster looks way out of place with ypur manual shifter. so that leavs a couple of things it's had manual converson?, it's had the cluster changed? or the nissan factory got mixed up? wonder what happend???? :)

    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi     
    • Could you please express this thought again with some clarity added?
    • So, whilst the Bogan Cruise Ship is GTG, and I had organised some time today to go on the SAU NSW cruise, my best laid plans where kicked in the balls, well, kicked in my right knee to be exact Now, after a bit of arthroscopic "honing" and tibial band lengthening "modifications" , I'm sitting on a couch in a prescription induced drug haze, watching 5hit on the Youtubes and falling in and out of consciousness......good times
