My Series 2 Stagea (From The Uk)

Hello Guys,

Thought i would drop by and say hello as there is alot of good info on this site :D

I will be using this as my daily / tow vehicle for my S15.

Car was stock when it came over from japan. So far i have fitted my ebc and a fmic now running at 0.8 bar.

Got r33 front and rear calipers to fit.

LPG conversion.

I put my Advans from my s15 on the stag. Going to swap for my spare 350z alloys though as I dont think it suits.

Now just need some masa wings so I can crack on with the r 34 conversion.

The intercooler was an easy fit to be honest just needed to cut away some of the bumper beam. The pipe work used the original wing mount openings.

Quite a few have done it over here. Mines due to be one in a few weeks. Turbocharged engines take well to it as long as the temperature is kept intact. Ie upgraded spark plugs etc and a good remap.

Pretty sure there are a couple of LPG powered RS4Ts in Aus.

here's one:

I think your car will look better with the 350Z rims - haven't seen a three spoked rim that I like ever! Have seen a few Stageas with 350z rims - they go well.

Im also having some Fuel cut issue's

I have done some searching on here and i think i need to unplug another sensor.

I have an EBC fitted and every time the car boosts to my set level of 0.75 bar it drops off then fuel cuts :(

Yes, that's my LPG Stagea, there are a few others that I know about including NM35's however they are all dual fuel.

Started the R32 GTR brake conversion on the stagea the weeked.

Calipers arrived before bank holiday so I made a start.

FYI BnQ stock the 14mm od tube £3.94 for 2m worth. I tried every metal place then called to BnQ on a whim and result.

I also bought longer M12 Bolts.

After you remove the caliper on the S2 you will find this issue.

So use the 14mm OD tube and the longer M12 bolts to fit the calipers.

Cut the pipe and slot the insert into the S2 knuckle.

I will update with the finished pics tonight. I have not started on the single pot rear's yet. I will take off the stock S2 rear caliper tonight and see what needs to be done. Lets hope it bolts straight on......

You may find you have to trim the dust shield/stone guard whatever its called.

Didn't have to trim the front shield but did on the rears. Looks like when I get the big brake upgrade for the front I will need to trim them.

R32 Gtr brakes fitted front and rear! Finally !!!

Fitted some bc coilovers today! Not a lot of adjustment in the front shocks. They won't go any lower. Will need to raise the back a bit to level it out. Anybody else fitted these?


As for the ride they are brilliant :)

    • 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.
    • Hey everyone, I’m having a bit of a crisis and would like some advice.  I am in the process of assembling a head I had gotten back after NAPREC did their work. I had the exhaust studs removed prior to sending it to the machine shop, but afterwards when I tried threading in new studs, they wouldn’t go in straight. They would thread in smoothly by hand with almost no effort, but it doesn’t go in straight (noticeably circular motion) and eventually stops about halfway in. I had a couple go in perfectly straight with no effort, but when I removed them to try it again, they no longer when in straight and had the same issue as the others. The studs I’m using are M8x1.25, which I read was the standard. I did some research and decided to buy a chaser kit and new studs IEE NZ just in case. Has anyone experienced this? How screwed am I? Do I just need to run a chaser or tap and try again? Prefer a chaser because I heard taps can destroy existing threads.    Note: I also have a new set of intake studs that went straight in just fine that I bought from IEE NZ. I bought the exhaust studs from the U.S.
    • Photos. What you describe sounds impossible, given how the arms are assembled to the upright.
    • Hello everyone.  Since the last stint of turbo upgrades, the intake plumbing from air filter to turbo was made up of sections of ally pipe and silicone bends. This was done as the stock suction pipe was so restrictive, it was noticable on the dyno. The configuration and layout of the m35 engine bay meant that the intake plumbing was too close to the exhaust manifold, even in contact with the heat sheild in one spot. Apart from that i had to use the first section of the stock suction pipe bolted onto the turbo. Although the setup was much better than the stock suction pipe, it still caused some restriction and excesive heat into the incoming air. Its like trying to suck a thickshake through a thin soft drink straw, possible, but you gotta work really hard. Then add the heat...for those that may not know, the hotter the air, the further the oxygen molecules are apart and the less explosive a given area of air is when mixed with fuel, hence, why intercoolers work (compressing air makes the molecules move faster which also generates heat). Water injection and nitrous oxide injection also use the same principle.  As the M35 Stagea intake and suction pipe options on the market are very very limited, i decided to fabricate my own from the turbo to the filter and include one silicone joiner to allow for engine twist.  If anyone is interested while I'm in the process, I could manufacture a couple more but you gotta let me know soon. I'll post some pictures soon.
