V35 2003 Engine Mod Help


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I have a skyline v35 350gt coupe and want to start modding my car and was wondering what the best mods will be to have on my car.... At the moment the only engine mod i have is an injen CAI.

I want to go down this direction:

High flow full catbacks + exhaust

y tube downpipes

Headers

Spacers

What do you guys think?

I am after higher HP/TQ but dont have the budget to throw down 10k for turbos/superchargers.

Any cheap engine mod answers will be really appreciated.

All the reading I have done says don't bother with headers as they are a pita to fit (massive job unless you pull the engine from the car), and have little performance benefit.

But you are on the right track with the other mods .... then add an Apexi SAFCII so you can tune the thing somewhat.

What are some good kits to have the car sound like a v8 supercar (roars)

i found one good one on youtube.. any other kits/combinations that sound like this?

Motordyne Shockwave TDX2 is DEFINATELY the best sounding exhaust i've ever heard but in saying that it will cost you $1,500 + installation (if u don't know how to do it) + shipping

goodluck!

looking at getting the MD 5/16 spacers.. It comes in iso copper thermal and the basic package.

$50 difference in the two items.. Is thermal copper only needed in really cold weather (snow)?

I recorded a video of my car the other day,

Uploaded it up to youtube for you then.

Sheldon, I didn't know Hilldon Court @ Nerang was a closed street....., but then it looked like you were only doing 59, lol.

Sounds nice - suitable for a young blokes car but too loud for an oldy like me.

My strong advice to you Sheldon would be to take this video down immediately .... police DO check these forums, and they WILL pursue you and charge you for this sort of behaviour - A Current Affair would have a field day with this footage - especially with the people on the street.

I can see it now: " car hoon narrowly misses unsuspecting bystanders". A certain tunnel video in SA springs to mind....

Good that you pointed that out clearly Andrew. No one likes to see a member in trouble.

I wasn't even driving :( Needless to say, thanks for the heads up, I was hesitant uploading it for these exact reasons, but at the same time wanted to give an example of the Motordyne Exhaust.

Yeah the tunnel incident is why I am so vigilant about it now. Even though it wasn't an SAU:SA club sanctioned cruise, there were 4 club members involved, which brought the heat on us as a club. I had to meet with the head of SA traffic cops Stuart McLean a number of times and we finally got across that we as a club don't condone that sort of behaviour, and subsequently the cops have stopped harassing us.

It was not a fun time for Skylines in SA though - every man and his dog got picked on for a fair while after that incident.

Have you got software that can black out the image and you just upload the audio with a blank video?

    • My 2016 Q50 does have a crossover, and it is a twin 45mm (out diameter) system, so not exactly free flowing. Just take the car to Castle Hill Exhaust (or any other decent performance exhaust shop) and get it on a hoist for them to check out, based on power targets they will make something custom for you.
    • Playing devil's advocate, upping the fuel pump severely while using stock gear can actually raise the fuel pressure because it overpowers the reg. The thing is, to really confirm this, you install a FPR gauge, and usually that also comes with a regulator.... so nobody knows whether this actually is overpowering the stock regulator or not. Suppose that scenario is not a stock car tho.
    • A chaser is really just a tap. Just a less aggressive tap. It still has to be able to move metal to do its job. It may not cut the way a tap does, but it still has to push deformed threads around, and deformed threads are often a hair's breadth away from snapping off. Especially in cast aluminium alloys.
    • I visually inspected the threads and they look intact and not so dirty, so I don’t understand why they wouldn’t thread in straight.    How would a chaser cause any damage? It’s intended to clean up the threads right? Even if it was cross threaded. That shouldn’t be the case though because the studs that were removed were OEM. The intake side had no issue. 
    • Well, try the new studs first, in case the US sourced studs are actually the problem. But given that the head is off the engine, at least it won't be too hard for someone to install helicoils if it turns out the holes are stuffed. You don't want to just run a tap or chaser through there if by doing so you leave behind 3/10ths of f**k all thread and the studs just pull straight out when you torque up the manifold nuts.
