What Have You Done To Your Stagea Lately?

Recommended Posts

I decided 12.9v max just wasn’t cutting the mustard. So upgraded to an LS1 alternator using the CWC kit. Fitted great and now I have a constant 14.7v

Rust be gone!  Except they keep finding more 🙃.    It's all getting done properly, cutting out and welding in metal, no cover ups here.  They normally work on Fiats and Alfa's, so they know rust 😆  

After 10 years on the street. It will have an easy life in a dry garage.  I only have on street parking but I've found a lockup 10 mins walk away at very reasonable price.

Had an exiting run against a road bike, dumped it hard into 3rd gear as I pulled away & bang. I now have lots of little bits of 3rd gear, so I've done something to my Stagea but its not an improvement. Now I have a choice, a brand new 5 speed Nissan box for $3400 or a PPG dog box for $12000. Any suggestions?

lol, not ideal as an improvement.....are you making enough power to make it worth upgrading the gearset?

a stronger box can make it a pain if you drive it daily, unless you are sticking with a helical gearset.

Yeh its a Maatouks Racing built motor running 526hp at the wheels on 98, I was almost ready to get a flex fuel tune & turn it up to about 700 - 800. I think I need to upgrade the box as 3rd gear is the weak link so probably as you mentioned a 1st to 4th helical cut dog box will be needed. It will save down time & money in the long run. It is my daily apart from road bikes & I don't think I could put up with an auto or justify a sequential.$22K

is there anywhere in Sydney/Newcastle that builds PPG boxes as freight to SA is a pain.

Today's project was to develop and tack up a 4inch metal intake pipe to suit the new turbo, coming along nicely, once I've positioned the weld in bung for catch can bypass line she'll be ready to tig together

hmm that's almost exactly the same as mine on 98, 395akwkw. Hopefully I'll have more luck with the box. I guess it depends how much you need to run daily, for me a box that is easy to live with is a priority (ie, factory, or at least a helical/synchro box)

All reassembled and airbox partition modified to suit and refitted, kinda sneakily looks like it's factory, the satin black hides its dimensions I reckon, now the wait for 2 weeks till tuning day😔
