[Vic] F/s Or Swap: Stout Type R Carbon Bonnet


Recommended Posts

hi guys, need to get rid of this bonnet as it wont fit with my new setup and taking up space. regretful sale as these bonnets dont come along everyday. it was damaged in transit when i purchased it, and has since had the cracks in the resin ground back and re-resined. the damage is still visible and would suit a paint job for a street car(some prep work will be involved).

im hunting around the $500 mark - though decent offers wont be refused.

as for a swap, im looking for a set of wheels, preferably with decent tyres, i am willing to trade the bonnet + my R34 GTT rims/tyres for a set of rims/tyres. im looking for somthing wider than i have now, im nto to fussed about a bit of gutter rash, my r34 rims have a few marks on them which i will take pics of if i get anyone interested. my wheels have 225/45's on the front and are 98% tread, not sure on tyre brand, somthing fairly cheap, and 235/45 on the rear wrapped in falken zeix at about 70% tread.

so im looking for 17/18/19's that i can put 255's on, my new setup has traction issues.

surely someone wants to take this off my hands.... these bonnets retail for well over $1k new, and thats even if you can find one in aus, this was bought in from japan. A bit more sanding to smooth over the re-resin, paint it black.. or whatever colour you want, and you have perfectly clean carbon bonnet, that i doubt you will ever be lucky enough to finad another car in vic with one. Also just to note, the damage was superficial only. The on img of where the carbon sheet is damaged, is the only one. the rest of the cracks are in the RESIN ONLY, the carbon fibre was not damaged. I pad a fair bit for this bonnet, and used it for maybe a month. As stated above, it was damaged in transit, somthing must have been put ontop of the bonnet in a truck and the weight split the resin.

anyways, decent offers even??? i need some rims ppl... ahha

    • 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.
    • It will work when it works, the problem is what happens when it doesn't work. The failure mode of the FPR hose popping off is bad news if you get into boost. If you tee it off the factory boost gauge instead in most RBs it's just a gauge instead of being used in the ECU. Even in the turbo NEOs the failure mode is not as bad as it would otherwise be, the ECU uses MAFs primarily and the MAP sensor is mostly for transient handling and overboost protection.
