R32 Project Street/track


Recommended Posts

hey guys,

So begins my a long journey to be. I was looking around for a r32 for a while as i had had enough of my e30 bmw and it's never ending issues. Saw this come up on carsales one morning and jumped on it 155000 genuine kms, apexi catback with muffler removed, Tein Super Streets, Volk Gtp's, Greddy turbo timer, Gay raceboi momo steering wheel, Cooling pro front mount, hks pod filter, Super cold A/C, Nismo 550cc injectors, gfb valve which i believe is leaking, Picked it up for the handsome sum of $6000 with 6 months rwc and rego, I drove it up from Brisbane Easter sunday.

Man what a trip dropped into limp home mode twice and popped a front tyre. Got home and found 3 boost clamps loose. So fitted 3 new ones and bolted down the hard pipe. While i was looking around found the fuel pump regulator hose was off so there was another boost leak, the charcoal canister lines were also not bolted up. Previous owner was a pilot in training and had no mechanical idea!!!! Car was bogging down from time to time so i pulled the afm and cleaned it and no more limp home mode YAY!!! Car still bogs down from time to time when going from full throttle to part so i'm thinking bov is leaking. So far im loving it. Fitted 2 new 215/45/17 eagle f1's to the front since i had to replace the popped one with a 235 and it was rubbing. So anyway ON WITH THE PICS

Resoldered the afm joints today.... Definetly reccomend it to everyone made a heap of difference. Also stripped the bov wet n dryed it and re lubed it. Helped with the fluttering. Gave it a service with some motul 8100 excess as the old oil was FILTH. New fuel filter and all new fuel hoses. Covered the cross pipe over the radiator with reflective heat tape from work. Don't notice a difference but cleans it up as the old one was tarnished.

Found my cooler was rubbing on my front bar from the shit install job the P/O did. When i pulled it off and had a look i found a lovely suprise. Cooling Pro Coolers ARE SHIT.

hahah well their actually not to bad. The tyre fitters just used a short wheel socket instead of an alloy wheel nut socket which is much longer and grabs on the full length of the nut. And cheers

    • 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/
