where to mont SAFC2 in a R33?


Recommended Posts

I am not sure where to mont my New SAFC2 in my car I can decide where to sit it, anyone got some trick places they have monted there safc's?

- In the glove box :rofl:

- Next to the ciggy lighter, remove the coin tray.

- Above the coin tray, below the head unit.

Personally, mines in the glove box, I dont the like idea of eye candy for theives.

I had mine under the dash, above my left knee. It looked quite nice, when I sold it I really missed the nice blue glowy screen. Still do.

as you can see adrian has the obvious "blue screens of death" look going on his nice 4 door.. :) A bad idea if he was in melbourne, but here is QLD :(

you may also prefer a more subtle look that I had on my old r33. If i had the inclination I would have inset it properly to match the face unit.

Probably not good in an accident though. Footwell's are designed rather specifically to ensure minimal damage to your legs...

I saw Jim's install and I reckon I would knock it with my knee everytime I scratched my balls.

I'm not too enamoured with the ricey blue AVC-R screen - I have mine for quick display in my glovebox.

An idea I had was to mount it in the sun shade, but they're slightly too thick, too heavy to be supported perfectly and when it's up, buttons might get pressed... and then you've got to cut up your sunshade and run cabling, blah blah blah. Might still put my S-AFC up there, but I"m pretty lazy. :D Feel free to give the idea a go though. :D

    • medium amateur ?? VCT rather have than not and they NEO heads anyway... agree shouldnt be down there in revs agree but one  does stuff up at times and does help 😁
    • Sorry this is late, but I just changed mine on the GTT. They are 6.5T  I tried T5 at the start, they don't fit nicely and is all loosely goosey. T6.5 from eBay and it works fine
    • >complete amateur >1:24 at Winton laggy massive HP RWD R32 I dunno about the first part I would argue this use case probably doesn't need VCT, won't be in the rev range that it would ever be active!
    • Last weekend I changed out the noisy bearing in the rear. It went fine except the axle was super stuck in the hub. I eventually got it all swapped out over two days. The car is so much quieter but the ABS light came on. I freaked out thinking I'd put the bearing in backwards or used one without the integrated magnet for the speed sensor (lower E90's use a ring attached to the axle rather than built into the bearing). I checked the 2nd bearing I got, seems I got it right (black side in first). I bought a new Bosch speed sensor from eBay which arrived today, 10 mins to fit and cleared codes. No more ABS light.  My gut says I probably damaged it when pressing the bearings in and out as it kinda hangs in a bad spot - i should have removed it. Anyway, whatever, its quiet and fixed. I think the front bearings are ready for changing now, I can hear very slight noise that would have been masked by the dead rear one. Front ones are bolt in thankfully. Also bought the Nolathane rear subframe bushes and a Whiteline 16mm rear sway bar (OE is 13mm). I had this bar on my 330i but cbf'd removing it so just got another. The subframe needs to be lowered to fit the bar so i'll do bushes and bar at the same time. I was really temped to get solid aluminium bushes but they are really expensive and the whole subframe has to come out, not just be dropped which is not something I'm keen to do. 
    • who'd have thought and  some compression 🤔
