Cooler piping


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, anybody here knows how much is it to do a full cooler kit (excluding cooler) for R33 GTST would cost?

The price will vary greatly depending who you talk to , and what you ask for...so be sure to compare apples with apples.

Things that will impact cost are:

- the material (aluminium, stainless steel or mild steel)

- What piping you are after, form turbo to throttle body, or from inner guard to throttle body, or to/from inner guard utilising existing piping

- New flanges etc for BOVs

- Painted, polished etc etc.

- Installation, are they to mount and install the cooler, trim the bar etc etc.

Have a think about what you are comfortable doing yourself and be sure to ask for the same thing from all that quote

Roy does good piping! Hand made flanges, rolled edges, fully polished.... teh piping is the most expensive (in man-hours and tools used up to make) part on my car.... and it's not even installed yet!

:Oops: Dont go telling my old boss about the tungstan burrs i broke, or the fact that the workshop was open overnight to get it done :Oops:

Just like a good painting is the result of love and passion, so was your bit of shiny pipe

I got 2.5 inch 304 s/s ceramic coated mandrel bent cooler piping for my cooler for $600. The pipe from the turbo to cooler was 1 piece and so was the pipe from the cooler to the intake.

This pipework might be for sale by next week if it cant get reused with my new setup.

i've been quoted any where from $250 to $1000 for custome piping, it would be very similar to what the 33 would need, ask around. HYBRID make a 2 1/2" gtst r33 piping kit for around $500

    • 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?
