Main reasons I sold my 33 GTR was some rust problems & the po po / EPA 

Couldn't give that thing away.. would be different these days!

100% profit now... tempted to sell now but could be the type of thing to hold onto... I dunno

 

Also, new Ausnet (AST) CEO will be shaking things up big time soon once he gets in... Probably get bad press so price could go either way if anyone feels like a gamble.

At this stage it's pretty much the reverse of that, although thank f**k for tax returns


So the gtr is making progress?

My tax return was processed so my rates notice arrived to take it back.

Oh no not at all.

Hah, rates are due in January because someone decided I should dislike Christmas as an adult

Taking equity out on my house to buy a TT Supra is a good investment, right? 

In all seriousness, if you could buy a cool weekender / club rego car that you think will go up in value instead of down, what would it be? Best of both worlds then, doesn't cost much to have, enjoy it then sell in 10, 20, 30 years to make a buck. 

FD RX7s seem to be the last 'cool' 90s JDM car that isn't crazy expensive now?

FD about on par with 33Rs pricewise and have still risen a lot; the lowest I recall them getting to was high teens. Favourite looking Jap car, but I was scared to touch one back at their lowest cause apex and I'd be even more wary now; probably explains why they aren't more expensive. All the flagships are currently more than I'd ever spend on one myself - selling could be on the cards next year when USA can import.

R33 GTS-T is in all seriousness still a comparative bargain with all the other cars of similar performance (1/3 the price of the R which is slowly pulling it up), and with Nissan/Nismo OEM part remanufacture for GTRs, there would at least be support for ongoing maintenance of an R chassis, Stagea, or S chassis.

Strangely enough, the old Euro cars are the performance "bargains" these days - all the old V8 powered Benz, E46 M3, Audi S series etc. But...I'd rather road trip an FD than depend on my flat cap and 45° angled driver's seat to get me there in a plastidip C63.

    • So….. I’ve replaced all the coils and made sure I have a spark by fitting a spark plug to one of the new coils and cranking the engine. I’ve ensured I have fuel by removing what I assume is the ‘return to tank’ fuel line and cranking the engine. So I have a spark and fuel and the car still won’t run. Any ideas? may be time to get an auto electrician out! 
    • EFI Solutions aka Taarks have a great kit just for that. Better to have facts/data before making a decision. https://www.efisolutions.com.au/exhaust-pressure-sensor-pulse-damper-emap
    • I'm not sure why you removed the sound deadener???  Don't bother with DIY remedies... this is how you can do it properly. For the lightly stained areas, just stick to a fine grade wet sand paper....and then paint over once the stain is gone. For the worst areas...especially the pitted ones...you just need to sand the rust in the localised spot working down from a heavier grit to medium grit wet sandpaper, which will get most of the rust off. It's just localised rust from the spare wheel touching the boot. Don't go to town on sanding the whole boot...not needed! Try to avoid sanding the seam sealer etc (obviously) After the rust spots are down to bare metal - use a fine brush dipped in "RUST DEOXIDISER"...and carefully apply this to the little rust areas. It's important the chemical you use is DEOXIDISER. After applying that, let it sit for a while and obviously wipe off with prepsol before it dries, and repeat 3-4 times. If you go to a panel shop they will probably be able to sell you some - as the trade products are a shitload stronger than retail products. After deoxidising the rust, scuff the surrounding paint with red scotch brite....& then you are ready to apply etch primer and then paint the matte gray colour on. Mask up the surrounding area using tape & paper..... as you don't need to paint the whole boot, just blend it in and keep the repair as small as possible. Spray can paint or spray gun depending on your level of expertise will be fine. Probably will cost you about $100-$150 in materials.  
    • Interesting. The 30/900 looks right on paper but weather it gives me enough headroom is the question. I dont have a pressure sensor in the exhaust manifold so I won't know if I have a restriction unfortunately.
    • It depends if your current turbine is a restriction or not, if it is go up to the 35, it’s it’s not then stick the 30. Also the g30 turbine wheel will flow more then your gt30 one either way you go the compressor wheel is going walk away from your current turbo
