Moving Power Steering Line


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, first off not sure where to put this so i just put it in here but mods if it doesn't belong please move to where appropriate.

Well then, so basically R33 GTS-T rb25, getting rid of the clutch fan to mount BA thermo fans in. The thermo fans fit in between radiator and engine however the power steering line is in the way. What is the best way to move it and has anyone done it before. If I was to disconnect and mount it facing to the side will it effect anything (dont really see it being a problem)? The line is pretty long also so im not sure what to do with it and where to mount properly as if I were to move it Id have to take it off the original mount.

Please no discussion on clutch/viscous fan vs. thermo fans, decided against viscous fan for a number of reasons and main one being im trying to harvest everything the engines got, eliminating all type of un-needed drag on the crank.

Hope someone can help out :)

Thanks!

There is just a banjo bolt holding the line on there, shouldn't be a problem at all if you twist it 90 degrees and bolt it back on, as long as it can stretch that lengh. If the hose is tightened, with a twist in it, it will reduce the life span of it, but worse come worse get a shop to make a new line up

Just had a better look, got rid of all the aircon stuff, looks like theres plenty of room to twist it the other way, theres quite a lot of hyrdraulic hose, might have to make a bracket and tuck it all away but it looks easily doable. Easy enough job.. kinda feel like a retaed for not having a better look first instead of asking haha.

Got shrouds for the electric fans? Keep the stocker and put the boost up 1psi. If you're serious about reducing drag you will have removed the aircond and power steering?

Yeah they are fully shrouded fans, made to flow 4000cfm. Aircon is all gone, power steering I need (hill climb/track/drift) but am looking at ways of making it more efficient.

    • 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.
    • 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.  
    • There's a guy that calls himself Boosted International. You're able to request non standard designs off him too. That cost me $67 delivered so not bhed.. https://boostedintl.com/product/r33-gtst-gts-gtr-ashtray-gaugeholder/
