Wtb - R33 Gts-t Caliper Pin

Recommended Posts

I just bought a pair of R33 GTS-T calipers to go onto my R32 GTS ... now to fit them I will require one caliper pin as one was missing ...

Does anybody have a spare caliper pin for a 4 piston caliper lying around that I can buy off them ... I really want to put my New 4 piston calipers on already

All sorted now ... I went to specialty fasteners in fyshwick and got some long ass 6mm bolts and using 2x nuts to secure the bolt so the pads hold securely ...

A little bit of over engineering on my part but trying to find a spare caliper pin to use is pretty hard as none of the Canberra wreckers have any R32,33,z32,s14 calipers and they are not likely to separate 1 pin from the caliper

Yeah specialty fasteners in fyshwick are good for shit like that ... they tend to keep the weirdest sized bolts and such in stock ...

4 bolts and 8 nuts cost me $15 bucks tho but I guess it is quicker than trying to track down 1 caliper pin

The above is very accurate to the R32 GTS brake upgrade as It runs the same brake setup as an S13 Silvia (single piston caliper with 280 mm rotors )

Very very helpful link

As I wish to retain my 4 stud wheels I have to do the following

* Trim up part of the backing plate to fit the larger 296mm rotors (easy)

* Re drill the 5x114.3 R33 turbo rotors to 4x114.3 (only 3 holes need to be drilled in each rotor since it is still a 114.3 pattern

* Longer wheel studs will have to be fitted to the hubs (relatively easy job)

* At least a 5mm wheel spacers to provide clearance for the larger r33 calipers as they foul up on the inside of the front wheels

If you were to widen the track at the front with spacers it is best to do the same to the rear to keep the same front and rear geometry

    • 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.
