Fmic, Induction Pipe And Boost Control

Recommended Posts

Can anyone comment on whether or not these items combined are worth the money and will make a difference? Or any other recommendations would be great. They are for a stock R33 S2 GTsT with 3" Turbo back exhaust.

top one and bottom one. dont worry about the hard pipe. just make sure you mount the FMIC a bit higher or the bottom pipe will scrape kerbs (trust me, i got the same sort of setup)

i have similar mods to what you want.

bought my stealth intercooler from just jap- cheap looking kit but does its job

bought a 70buck boostcontroller. looks like it holds boost pretty well.

bought front and rear strut braces from justjap- 100 bucks each. cheap but do the job.

and ill be buying that induction pipe soon. not so much for performance but just looks.

all cheap stuff and does the job fine. its not like im trying to build a track or drag monster so dont really need the brand name parts. if i had the money i might have bought the good stuff. but with all that stuff added up above, i would have only been able to buy a good electronic boost controller.

Yes, agreed. I'm looking at mods that won't break the bank, be blatantly obvious or require cutting holes in any part of the Chassis/Body. The reason I mentioned the Hard Pipe is 'cause I read somewhere that the stock one will cave in if you draw too much suction through the standard air box and I'm not interested in a Pod Filter.

I do think that I'll spend a bit more and get a half decent front strut brace though. The rear one I've got looks pretty solid and is even adjustable.

lol @ bungy cord for the sub box :blink:

i think the hard pipe intake increases the induction noise a little.

And you wont have any problem with the rubber pipe closing up under boost. you need a far bit for that to happen :wub:

Have been considering the hard pipe myself, purely for the sound.

Yeah, I'm laughing too. I only picked the car up last night so I have a couple of little things to do to it. I'm still thinking of how to mount it securely but still be easily removed. :blink:

I've found the most difficult part to source so far is a dashmat. Aunger do one but I'm trying to find a helpful retailer to order it in. Part number is ADM4192A(colour).

yer i recon definetly get the boost control those things are great value for money...

Did you/do you recommend to remove the restrictors from the factory plumbing?

Edit: Yay....now I can edit

I bypassed the two stage solenoid today and I'm looking forward to installing the boost controller. The auto definately needs more low to mid range 'cause I'm already sick of having to rev it out to go anywhere quick. Too used to V8s I guess. lol...

LOL Dashmat = FAIL.

Bl##dy Trolls :/

Didn't realise this was a test :)

Dashmat = Protect Dashboard from harsh sun = PASS :down:

the induction pipe is a piece of shiit. installed it today. doesnt look like it hooks up with the BOV return but it doesnt hook up to the oil pipe to the head. had to get some new hose. shiit quality too. got it and it looked like it had been slid on a floor. no extra induction noise and no dose or anything like that. i suggest u get a custom one made up. just a couple of silicone adaptors, say 90degree bent 2inch to 3inch piece (guessing), to a 3 inch piece of pipe and another silicone joiner to the AFM. then just drill holes and weld on the extras u need.

    • Hello all, I would kindly ask if anyone had a Left Hand Side weather strip retainer (New Old Stock only please) available for the R34 GTR? Part number(s): 76871-AA101 / 76871-AA100 I have sourced the RHS but the LHS so far is proving elusive. I am based in the UK & will gladly pay shipping if someone has one available.  Many thanks
    • You can change the oil but I'd avoid full synthetic until you've done a few more km. Chrome or iron rings? If they're iron go for it they'll be fine, chome just a bit longer 
    • I hate to say it, but this isn't a 'great length' to steal a car. The people that steal high value cars are very used to stealing cars from garages. It really isn't a complicated process, a lot of people leave their keys in very typical places (think bowl/rack by the front door). You break into the house, grab the key and off you go. So what, in about 1 minutes time they have taken the car?  Probably goes without saying that most of these cars being pinched in this manner are the higher end Audi/AMG/etc. It's the same process though regardless of whatever the car is.  If you're worried about this, keep your car out of sight. If no one knows its in the garage, no one is coming for it. Other things include if you have an aftermarket ECU, change a setting so the car won't start even with the keys, setup CCTV cameras that ping your phone on activation etc.  If you think it's hard to break into a house to grab the keys first, just picture the fire fighters coming to recuse someone from a burning house. It's what, 10 seconds to gain entry if that? Locks only help honest people stay honest. 
    • Yes but when you buy that Nissan/Ryco filter it comes in a Nissan box labelled as Nissan. In this case it was in an Aisin box. A heads up would have been nice. If I had received it in an Exedy box I wouldn't have a problem if that's what Exedy supplied. I don't really care as long as it does the job as well as the Exedy did. 8 years of 300+rwkw with a fair bit of abuse. Time will tell as always. I have a swirl pot thingy, constantly self bleeding. If it is air in there it will sort itself out soon enough.
