M35 Things I Need Cleared Up!

hey guys, i just need to clear a few things about the m35s....

i spoke to my uncle who has contact in japan, he imports cars. and is constantly on the phone with his friends there. anyway he was chasing up the r34 dash mounted screen for a gtt and found one like a boss... and then boom its on its way here., from what ive told via some mates its a rare as part!

anyhow i remember everyone wanting aftermarket ecus for m35s? now i asked my uncle about this. he said if i can give him a contact number/address/email of a the exact shop/garage where they would be located, he can definatley bring em in. its just as easy as the right details. and then its 1 phonecall away.

im not sure if they are everywhere in australia yet these nismo/other brand ecus yet, as its been awhile since i remember reading about it.

2ndly. I was talking to a friends friend about my stag, and he asked if i made it rwd yet.... i replied saying wtf is the point. i have a track car already this is just a daily. and that i didnt know how...

he then proceeded to tell me that you just gotta pull a fuse... and i told himhe was mistaking my car for the older stageas... and his like nah man. its that one... anyway.... i told him i didnt think it could be done....

CAN someone please clear this up for me???

lol he then asked if i was ever going to sell it how much i was asking. i told him my price. and he was like wtf? your kidding way to expensive...

he then whispered to his mate that they are only worth $11,500 landed and on the road.... lol what an idiot. that clarified he was confused with the older stags and the m35...

If your uncle can find me a set of complete fog lights (lights and cover trims or the black blanking plates) for the aero front bar, I'd be very interested. Like very, very interested!

The ecu deal will definitely garner some interest too!

I think Jetwreck found if you disconnect an ABS sensor; instant RWD...

No, takes more than pulling a fuse to make it RWD. C34 and PM35 (series 2) you can pull a fuse to make it RWD, but not VQ25det Stagea's.

Yeah, your mate is thinking of C34's... although you can get an M35 brought in pretty cheap.

He certainly did, but it was how he found that out! :rofl2:

It would be a PNM35 thats the AWD model - and able to go RWD with the fuse

PM35's are all RWD- no "N" in the model code

knit picking I know, but Its a mistake that has been made heaps of times now in various posts by various people (not just you :thumbsup:)

Now I look like a OCD f**k.>_<

I remember, it was supposed to be tongue in cheek, but I'm posting from my phone, so no emoticons...

Something about a washer bottle...

If you can get a Nismo or Impul that would be great. But sounds like so far G-Zone are the best bet and they prefer to reflash/swap over, and do slightly custom upgrades.

LOL, treated like a noob!

Yes Alex, I know that the N means AWD... it was more just the model designation to separate the series 1 M35 from the series 2 M35 as opposed to a mistake.

As I was talking AWD anyway, I just figured that would suffice for Ced to get it clear to his mate :)

Cheers Craig... come down to Adelaide and we'll get some video of you :P Don't get interstate too much, but hoping to get over to Alpine again this year, was great fun two years ago.

More videos coming as we move from hosting our own videos to piggybacking off YouTube. Pretty 720p video :D

    • 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.
    • Yes you are right. Even conservatively one for 10 years, it would last 1000 years. The Alibaba suplier offer a sample for US$100.
