Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Spotted a Yellow R34 on victoria rd this arvo a cop was in the drivers seat and another was outside the car talkin to someone. If this was a cop car we all better be careful it had a big powerplay sticker on the back of it.

Now this could have been someone elses car but what was the cop doing in the drivers seat?

Not Sure so anyways beware unless anyone can clarify....... :ghost:

Cop was probably checking it out...

There are quite a few car enthusiast cops around... Not all of them are dickwads like some people on here would have you believe :P

Haha,

I dont think all of them are i have met a few nice ones over the years.

Its just most of the young highway patrol that are the arseholes.

Hopefully it wasnt a cop car with powerplay imports sticker on it thats all

Even though most of us wouldnt try and run a 34 well i wouldnt bother anyways.

No point not on the street anyways ;)

lol ... Are there prices that bad??

Hell yeah! Try $50-60k for an R34 GTT, and >$100 for a GTR. Haven't seen many GTR's there lately but they seem to sell pretty quick. You know what they say about a fool and his money.

I got pulled over for an RBT by a cop who had just bought a Twin Turbo Soarer, had a deopist on an RA20 Celica with a 1JZGTE in it and had a Datsun 1200 ute with a 13B Turbo that runs 11's. He quite liked RONIN and knew alot about MR2's

And I bought my 99 r34 GT-t from there for much less than that too. Great condition and good service.

To me it's time v money thing. I don't have time to work on my cars anymore so I work hard to get the money to buy a better one from a place that will look after me if I have any issues.

hehe, adrian...

yeah that yellow gtt has been there for a while now. i always see it along victoria road. model 6 white spoke wheels? yellow? different skirts and wing though to mine i think but nearly there!

i agree with most here, if the $ value didnt match the quality of the product im sure the business wouldn't survive?

in any case, 99% of the time money doesn't lie :)

    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
