newbie dumb questions

Recommended Posts

hi guys

cople of questions (probably stupid ones no doubt)

1) do all skylines come with a afm or is this a after market optionor diy install .

reason bieng there is not one on my car (see pic)

2) i was messing around in the boot the other day ,and i came across a box that looks similar to a ecu , it situated on the right hand side near the speaker,

can anyone tell me what this is and what it does (told u there were stupid questions)

im sorry if these are simple answered question ,

but i have been a holden v8 owner for some time and have only recentley found the path to enlightenment thru the almighty nissan skyline,

basically i am just trying to find out as much of what i dont understand as possible but in the process may come across as dumb questions

so i apoligise in advanve and hope you can bare me

oh and i can dribble on a bit (youve probably noticed)

Im pretty sure the boot box is the HICAS (4 wheel steer controller).

The standard ECU uses an AFM so its either hidden in the pic or you have a tricky aftermarket computer. Have a look in the passenger footwell for the computer, you might get a pleasant surprise ;)

Yeh comp in the boot is HICAS computer.

I cant see an AFM in the picture, i can see an AVCR/POWERFC boost solenoid tho

Have u got a Powerfc?

Ahh another v8 to skyline convergence :mad: Nice work :cheers:

Looks like a descent engine bay too, mite wanna keep an eye on that blowby to atmosphere filter, youll get an oil film over everything eventually.
