Just Jap Stealth Intercooler Problems... R34 Gtt

Recommended Posts

hi guys i recently got a just jap stealth intercooler for my r34 gtt with the nismo aero body kit, i got the intercooler on ok but am having a real hard time getn the front bit of the chassis back on infront of it.... it seems no matter wat i try it is about a cm or 2 from fitting back neatly wether i try mounting the intercooler higher like on the same bolt as the release lever for the bonnet or lower with a bracket and to the side like jase-r34 did... (http://www.skylinesaustralia.com/forums/Jj...lth+intercooler)

in the picture wat the red arrow is pointing to the front of the fan stops me fron having the fmic back any further and the yellow line is the part of teh chassis that i cant get back on only just because the intercooler doesnt seem to fit in that gap... so i cant get the holes lined up to put all the bolts back in...

any1 got suggestions or have this happen to them?

the bar your talking about is called a reo bar. i had to trim a bit off mine to get it back on. just mark on the reo how much you have to cut and get out the grinder. lol.

i was hoping i woudlnt have to cut it but i guess it aint that bad... its a bit anoyn but i thought they were ment to b bolt on kit basically lol

yeah, i had to cut a little, i rang and asked if i had to cut anything when purchasing, and they said no :)

only way to not cut would to be to remove the thermo or put a rather thin one on

bolt on kits that come with everything u need should also include an angle grinder haha

"Bolt on Intercooler...

Caution: by no means necessary will this part will not bolt on!)

i got the same intercooler and got the guys at eas performance to fit it for me and the only cutting that was done was the plastic bits on the front of the standard r34 front bar and that was it. i can see mine sits up against the reo bar but no cutting or trimming on it at all.

    • Can't forget them. Have spent the better part of the last 2 years in Bunbury. Any longer and I would have to get one of each.
    • Hit it hard last night, was in the shed till 2:30am. Had to get everything ready to try fit engine today as neighbour is going away tomorrow. This happenned today      Was going smoothly, till it wasn't. Had to lower the sway bar, remove engine mounts to get the engine to its spot and then refit everything. Head drain also created some clearance issues but got there in the end. Some idiot put the drain return on the sump virtually where the engine mount is. Hose fits on but is less than ideal, going to have to revisit it and fit a 90° fitting. Had some hiccups last night too with getting the flywheel and gearbox on. Firstly forgot the sandwich plate, so had to remove clutch and flywheel again. Then gearbox went on smoothly but then realised new block has an alignment dowel in the same spot as gearbox. GB off again to remove said dowel. Cnut. Anyway, it's in now. AC and PS pumps refitted, tail shaft bolted up as well. Left to do is reconnect all harnesses and plugs. Looks like a big mess ATM. Fit dump pipe, radiator, shifter, intake piping and associated bits, air box fill, afluids and hopefully fire it up. Looks like couriers please has lost my break in oil again. Useless pricks. Looks like I'll just get whatever mineral oil is on special at super shit auto. Hopefully it will actually run after all this or I'm going to burn it, lol.
    • The genuine ones are a minimum of $95 each on amayama. Jesse Streeter just quoted me $190 each. I can get a set of 6 MSD for $470 on ebay.
    • You forgot jet ski's and neck tatts.
    • New Monroe OESpectrum shocks for the Honda have been ordered, the car actually handles well with the OEM shocks, but from pulling the wheels off for a good inspection of the brakes and bushings, the only issue I saw was that it still has the original shocks, and with 160k km on them they are well past their use by date Also, in other "kids these days" news, the airbox resonator is "in the bin", a little more induction noise down low free reving, but it sounds really good (growly) over 4k RPM on the road, worth while silly mod for 10 minutes of work and zero dollars Also the K&N filter for the OEM airbox arrived, whilst I didn't get it for performance, as it probably doesn't give any, it's more to save a few bucks replacing OEM filters every service, 3 filter changes and it has paid for itself I also picked up another 5 litres of HPR5 for another oil filter and some more engine flush, I'll give the last HPR5 and filter change 1k km to do it's thing then flush it all out again and stick the new stuff in, anal, but I feel it's always worth the effort when I get a "new old" car to really clean out its guts, and as the K series engines have a few internal mesh filter screens for the V-Tec thingie, as well as the usual one on the oil intake tube, it's preventative maintenance to keep the oily bits happy when I'm wringing it's neck The Bogan Cruise Ship might even come out from undercover this weekend for a cruise, weather permitting of course
