Couple Race Car Build Questions

Recommended Posts

Hey, We are in the process of putting together a r32 gtr race car and a had few questions.

1-can we just remove the stock dash and replace with an aftermarket one. Is there anything that is important to things running correctly? Everything seems to be tied toghter with these cars so I figured I would ask

2-I dropped the rear subframe and was wondering about subframe bushes. Is there an off the shelf replacement to move the subframe closer to the body?

3-I'm considering running ikeya formula arms but want to run a s14 subframe down the road. Can you use r32 gtr arms with an s14 subframe? Unless I can just modify my bnr32 subframe

Best bet is to look through some of the R32 build threads. Many of your answers will be in there. With regards to the dash I think in R32s then desh sends the ECU to the speed signal as the speed input is into the back of the dash

if you are building it for the track....are you building it for a specific race class or just trrack days?

if for a class, some mods may not allowed...so if modding it, you'd want to see if those mods meet your class regs

You can remove the cluster but may need to supplement something for a torque gauge. Can't remember if ours worked without it.

There is no aftermarket subframe bushes that move the subframe closer to the chassis that are off the shelf as far as I know.

Typically I modify the subframe and supply Cnc machined alloy bushes to solid mount it and raise it as well.

What are you reasonings Behind wanting to use an s14 subframe in the GTR? Curious to hear them..

Subframe risers are a common mod these days. Drifters love them.

powered by max make them (off the top of my head) along with plenty of others.

2 issues with running an s14 subframe. 1) the subframe mounting points are slightly different (can be overcome with offset drilled subframe risers which are less common but i have seen them around) and 2) the r32 arm's don't fit the later subframe.

if you really want to change subframes I would go to R33 or R34 subframes. as far as dash goes speed signal comes out of the dash to the ecu so you'll need to replicate that speed signal. the other things that come to mind at the AWD light, also hicas light (which also displays low PS fluid warning). they are all easily overcome though.

Is S14 subframe the same as R33?

If so is it only the swaybar & upper camber arms that aren't interchangeable?

    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
