Blackburn Nissan

Hey all. Nedded a few small bits and pieces for the r33 gts-t and thought I would go to a nissan dealer to see what can be bought for the line. Walked into the spare parts office and was confronted by a display of NIZMO stickers. Thought to myself this is promising. Waited for a while (guy was on the phone) looking around and saw a Nissan calender with an r34 gtr. Cool.

To cut a long story short the guy behind the counter was the most helpful person I have spoken to concerning my r33. Most minor parts are stocked (filters, spark plugs, etc). If it has to come from japan it takes two weeks. From interstate it takes two days and if it comes from within Victoria half a day. I'm thinking about enquiring about a full consult service as well. Give them a go. :D

Garry Rogers Nissan has 2 mechanics who were trained to work on the Aussie GTRs. I haven't been there in a while, but they did try to make me spend almost $3000 on a new rear K-frame assembly. I replaced it at UPI with a 30,000km old one for $400.

I got quoted $800 - ex Japan, for a Power Steering hose - All rubber! This was from Oakleigh Nissan I think, was over the phone...not a high pressure type of hose either.

Other things can be well priced though - N15 type "Nissan" logo badges were only $12 each!

yeah got quoted around 250 for a centre console lid. I used to go to nissan for services and they were absolutely crap!!! tensioned the belts all wrong and the car just didn't seem right. Cost me a grand to change the clutch and service. Another thing they said only 1 clutch kit will fit in it in aust. I'm like wtf, bullcrap. But the clutch was so roooted it had to be towed so i didn't want to tow somewhere else. so i just sed yea do it. took more than a few days to get there as well. 5000 kms after a major service i said can u service it again and tune it coz i'm getting epa'd. They replaced spark plugs again, after 5000kms i was like don't u check ur files mate? 6 of em 25 bux each. damn. This was at frankston nissan.

now i go to a friends workshop. But i buy nissan parts for it, i need a new rocker cover gasket, n e 1 know how much they are. Yes u are right the dudes behind the counter are kool, very friendly and helpful. Just not good experiences with the services.

    • Got quoted £50 per knuckle to vapor hone them, so bought a sand blasting cabinet and did it myself  Pretty happy with the first attempt  I didn't get a before picture, I was too excited to use my new toy  The knuckle was pretty much black though when I started
    • Sounds like all you want is a button on your CAN dash pad that is for 2-step / anti lag launch.  Hold the button down, rev limit gets set to whatever you want, say 5000 rpm. Then mass timing is pulled and a heap of fuel is dumped in for fun times. Want more bangs and flames, pull more timing or add more fuel or both lol.  Obviously the more you use the fun button, the shorter the life of the entire hot side of your motor. So valves, turbo, cat, any sensors in the exhaust, etc etc. Well, if you are using it for its intended purpose it is very rewarding. If you are at the drags and want to launch on full boost, how else are you going to do that?
    • Engines are expensive. You already mentioned having thermal management issues with your car, anti-lag dramatically raises EGTs and can easily damage a cylinder head. If your goal is actually to improve transient response I recommend VCAM. DBW can also help here. Instead of a simple mapping of accelerator pedal position to throttle opening instead you interpret the accelerator pedal as a certain torque/power request and the throttle will open more or less to achieve that. So if your desired acceleration requires getting 0.5 bar of boost the throttle will silently go wide open to spool the turbos, then as it gets to that target intake manifold pressure it will adjust the throttle back to the steady state target. Another trick you can play is detecting when a shift is happening using a strain gauge and clutch switch for example and rather than snap the throttle shut when the accelerator pedal closes you cut fuel injection and hang the throttle open to keep the turbo from slowing down. This is a pretty complicated trick to play though as if it got stuck in that logic you would have engine runaway and you want to make sure the engine RPMs actually fall at a reasonable rate instead of rev hanging badly.
    • What sort of power difference do you think you'll see between the two engines? Is it just the extra RPM from the wide journal that you're chasing?
