Recommendations for custom pipework


Steve
 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I want to replace my intercooler to plenum pipe, its a bit too thin and I think is causing problems, but either way, it definately wont hurt going to larger pipe, ie 3 inch.

So far I have been to a couple of places and been quoted 450 and 515 dollars, which is a bit more than I would like to spend if possible.

Can anyone recommend a place that does custom pipework, and is reasonably priced (hippy, you must have sused this out by now:D). I feel the quotes I have had so far a bit expensive - may be that I am just suffering from tight arse disease though:p

Cheers

Steve

thanks enrico, I am seeing clint tomorrow, I shall check it out.

Bl4cK32 - shall do

PSI-VL, their work is first class, and I have checked them out. You do get what you pay for, but by the same token, most workshops these days charge around $60-$70 per hour - thats more than a doctor:) and really, its just a pipe:p

Nightcrawler, thanks, they are similar priced - and I am in tightarse mode since it is redoing something that has already been done. Evan (PSI Fabrication) said a while back he could redo the pipework for me for around $150-200 (as I have spend $$$$ with him) - but he has fallen off the face of the planet!

PSI-VL, I live near tilbrooks(hampstead gardens), about 10 minute walk Yes please to your mates, mates name:) that would be great. 350 in a TE/TG? holy fark! Does that live queenstown way? Think I saw a TG down that way with a candy yellow paint job, looked very nice (for a gemi:p)

    • 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.
