Nismo Afm's

Recommended Posts

$550+ for changing your std afm's to non-oem non-legit nismo afm's

sounds steep to me

id prefer to sell the stock ones and buy nismo afm's

at least you know they are new and guranateed to work from nismo

The problem with just changing the resistance...

You still have a 15yo AFM that's most than likely going to fail at some point given just about all of them do.

But new ones and you'll never have to worry about it for another 10-15yrs. AFM issues can often being a major pain in the ass.

I got mine done by the same people mate, havent installed them or run them yet so comment on how well they work

the way i saw it was

1. I can either go to the trouble to sell my standard ones, buy second hand z32 ones, screw around with plugs etc

2. Buy genuine nismo ones that are more then $1000 dollars as a pair from memory

Or 3 get them cleaned recalibrated and have them still looking stock and able to bolt straight back up to my apexi intake system... remember though ull need to pay for postage to send your standard ones off and get them sent back

Closer to $750 exchange rate depending

Sell old AFM's for $150 - ~$600 for brand new, high resolution AFM.

Not a bad deal if you ask me. Especially if one of your recalibrated old AFM dies... You are immediately behind in both cost and downtime for the car as you now can't use a stocker AFM to get you out of trouble

agree with r31nismoid

airflow meters can fail with age and are crucial for engine management operation

i see no reason to skimp on them when you can buy brand spanker new nismo's off the shelf readily avaiable guaranteed

Haha well that's not very comforting! Lol. May have to look into genuine nismo meters then because these re-callibrated ones are $275 or $295 each (exchange for old ones) so like you said if you can pick up a pair of genuine nismos for around $750, sell old ones for $200 you're paying the same for brand new genuine really

Go for the NEW Nismo AFM's, i was trying to put off getting them because of the cost.

But really, you have to see the benefits

1 - they fit up as stock (air box, apexi pods, etc)

2 - they're new, so they should last a good 10-15years at least

3 - they allow so much more flow to be reliably measured

My missus WRX had the engine go in it, and it was because it was running stupidly lean because the AFM wasn't reading properly and leaned the mixtures out. it cost her $7,500 for the engine and she still had to get a new AFM. the AFM was a $250 part and because it was stuffed it caused over $7k damage.

the question i asked myself is, do i really want to skimp and save a couple hundred dollars and still effectively run a 20 year old AFM or go for a brand newie and not risk having any major issues caused by the AFM's

Would go for ecu with map sensors but want to retain factory airbox etc and only looking to achieve around 300kw atw. Probably cheaper to go something like d-jetro and not worry about afm's but Unfortunatly cops up this way don't take kindly to pods or made up airbox"s etc and an R34 gtr kinda stands out on country roads lol.

You just get drama of a different kind to replace it with.

Nothing isn't without drama.

Like what?

Mine's been on map sensor based ecu's since 2 weeks after I bought it in 2005 and havnt had a problem with map sensors.

    • Yeah it was a little confusing as stream of consciousness. To be clear I’m referring to a failure in a NEO turbo where you have another MAP sensor or something similar teed with the OEM MAP sensor for whatever reason. 
    • Cheers for the feedback. Yeah I've already got the superpro outer adjustable bushes, been in for about a year now. Bought the inner non adjustable superpro bushes last week and planning to install this week/next week. I'm kinda set on going polyurethane path to help stiffen things up a bit and longevity. RE: Is there a good quality aftermarket replacement arm which already has new bushings but also adjustable camber? Rather than the eccentric bolt? Yep, Hardrace and Cusco do them about $450-$500. Rubber bush.  Would have been the easier option.
    • I have this issue with my 08 v36 sedan that has only had 98 in it last 10 years, and Im pretty sure my mechanic puts k&n in when servicing. Could it really be that simple? I've been shopping around to get it fixed, but being so cold in Adelaide, it doesn't make the noise.
    • That's somewhat of a mixed message or confabulation of two different things. Point 1. Yes, it is generally a bad idea to tap anything into the FPR connection because when it goes wrong the lean condition is very destructive. No, it doesn't go wrong often, but when it does, it is usually because the ignorance of the failure mode is combined with sufficient general ignorance that the failure becomes more likely through ineptitude. Thus, it is generally easier to simply say "don't do it" than try to have a nuanced discussion. Point 2. The Neo's boost sensor "failure mode" should you tap into its connection and have that connection fail is not severe at all. But this is where the confabulation occurs, because you made it sound like tapping into the FPR on a Neo was not as bad. There wasn't any need to bring the Neo's boost sensor up as it was lacking in relevance, even with its previous mention in this thread. /pedant mode.
    • A few things to consider: Is there a good quality aftermarket replacement arm which already has new bushings but also adjustable camber? Rather than the eccentric bolt? Many years ago I replaced all my bushings front and rear with superpro polyurethane bushings. Sure they've been fine. But the castor isn't adjustable and is slightly out, the camber adjustment bolts aren't the greatest and most secure way of adjusting them. If I were to do them again I'd probably just replace the arms with aftermarket ones. I used a 5 ton press to get everything out. The biggest pain is having a wide selection of metal pipe pieces that are strong enough to press things out with. The rear hub bushings gave me PTSD.
