rns11z what sought of power were you making and at what boost setting with the gt30 500hp turbo before and after running toluene? Dr Drift do you tune link aftermarket ecu? i spoke to ian weightman of amberley autos in dandenong and said he wouldnt touch it, he said that he only likes to tune apexi fc , autronic and motec!!!! what do you make of this? oh yead he reckons micro tech and wolf is crap too!! guess no one told him yet that there are a few skylines running 9 and 10 sec passes on these so-called crap ecus!! not every body has got a spare $4500 for motec! no matter how good they are.

RedLineGTR - Haven't tried to source it personnaly, but I beleive you buy it from BP at a 'cleaning' agent.... refer to other posts about it.

SMB315 - Yes you can run more boost, but you'll still be limited if running the standard ceramic wheels.

bigcarl- Yes I can and have tuned several link ecu's and I know why Ian won't tune them, for the same reason I won't recommend them. I only tune them if someone already has one. The older microtech's were fairly neanderthal but the new ones have full map matrix tuning on fuel and pretty good ignition mapping. Wolf looks very good on paper, only done a couple of these though with mixed thoughts. Personnaly my favourites are re-mapping the standard ECU's just wish i could do the RB25's economically.

Also, for reference my old 180sx was running a pretty much standard setup with a remapped ECU, 1.1 bar of boost, and a 20% Toluene mix... Result = 13.5 @ 98 MPH

Hey Pred..... what evil are you planning?

Dr Drift, I may be in a position for some toulene tuning in about 3-4 weeks all going well with the engine rebuild. Getting the PFCas recommended by a well known performance tuner so I will be looking for the right settings for the track (circuit)

dr drift, have you tunedany skylines with a gcg 450hp highflow st.1 turbo? if so what sought of power at what boost levels? do you think my turbo would still efficient up to say 1.5 bar of boost? on 98ron and 1.7 on 20% toluene with standard internals?

    • Haha, I’ll just have to do both… I’ll be upgrading the Skoda Kodiaq work car eventually..
    • I'm not sure if this helps or not. I recently upgraded to R34 Vspec2 Brembo's on the S2 Stag. I used this braided kit: https://safebrake.biz/home/292-skyline-gt-r-r34-awd-26tt-brake-upgrade-safebrake-performance-hoses.html Beyond this I got the R33gtr front brake hard lines, that go over axle hub just behind the dust plate and all lined up beautifully.  The braided lines were same length as the stock ones. Needed to buy 2x longer bolts for one of the hard mount points for the braided hoses up the front. Trim rear dust shields so could fit 322mm discs. It's a pretty straight forward job.   ps. the r33gtr hard brake lines have the flare nut so should bolt straight into your callipers.
    • Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has changed their stock front upper /  inner control arm bushes for nolathane and has any advice on doing so? See pic circled in red with the bushes im referring to. Can I do it myself? ie. with an air chisel and a suitable sized/diameter socket on the end. Or is it a hydraulic press job? I've already done the outside bushes, the originals popped of easy with the air chisel as they had a little lip to get some purchase on. Cheers, Pete    
    • Mate, great looking R33!  It's not too late to go European and spend your days talking about how you went from v1.01 to v1.03 of your Stage 1.5 tune and now you can bake off the line holding your chai latte without spillage. 🥲 I feel you're at the point of no return now, brace yourself!  
    • I have a Toyota Estima hybrid AHR20 2013. The diffrential arm bushing need replacing. The OEM differential arm part number is 52380-28050. Please let me know if you know anyone who can supply or supply and install the differential arm bushing. I have asked Febest Auto Parts, Auto-Parts and Auto Plus Parts, without any luck. Thank you in advance for any relevant information.
