Who (like me) is a full time slave and works 9-5 mon to fri?

If you do... where and when do you find the time to get mods / tuning for ya beast???...assuming that its your daily driver.

Asking because my room is filling up with bits and pieces to go onto the car and I will have to rock up late for work if I take my car into a garage in the morning and then catch public transport to work...

Any garages open on the weekend?

I think what you mean is how do you find time to do ANYTHING during the week? Luckily for me, the team I work in cover 8am to 6:30pm so there's a bit of room to move if you need to.

I work full time Mon-Fri but luckily for me, I own part of the workshop and my car spends most of it's life there....

We are open on weekends or open late by appointment.

Give us a call on 9512-7591 and you'll speak to Gerald or Nigel who can organise a time to help you out.

Yeah its sucky when are either  

- using your car as a daily driver  

- or if u are stuck interstate during the week

Fark how do you get sound systems and car mods put on *#%@

Just need a garage at home w/ lighting and good motivation. When i was working 8:30-5:30 I got quite a few things done like install a stereo, servicing, etc. That hour for lunch to pick up stuff can be invaluable!! You also gotta pass up the getting so smacked on the weekends, you lose half your most valuable part of the week feeling like your head is about to explode. Once i did that I had heaps better time management, but it was never easy i guess.

I did a lot of the work servicing my car, servicing, etc in the dark during winter in non-daylight savings. Was a bitch, but one of them "lights on a stick" and a 20m extension cable can be invalueable.

9am - 5pm, what job is that, i want that... hahaha?

Well, IcePerformance, Revzone and Racepace all do saturdays i believe, that's where i'm taking mine.

It is hard though, cos you want to enjoy driving the car on the weekends rather than having it spend half the time in the workshop.

I think because he's lost his license?

I met him tonight, took a mate to drop some springs off for him :)

I have "Speed Technology" (or EFI Hardware) accross the road from me, and sometimes they park cars in our factory so they help me out.....

Nothing like seeing off the meter cars all day, like old 260Z with 350 chevs and 280z with RB26Detts!!!!

YAY

Im lucky that Ice are located 5 mins from my work so I can drop my car off and get someone from work to come with me and bring me back - drop me off again. Most companies will give you 1/2 hr leaveway here and there anyways for things like this. Everyone has to get their cars serviced.

    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • 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
