@PLYNX asif you would have bought a BMW :D 

 

Remember how I said nothing goes to plan with the R33? so spent a few hours at Birrong trying to start the stupid car, we got it going with start ya bastard. Car had injector pulse, spark, registered RPM, you name it! Everything was working as one would assume.

Both scratching our heads, then he got one of the workers to pull them all out and put then in an injector bath. Surprise surprise, every single one seized.

Amazing right? These are about 2 years old, have had like no more than 5000km on them and yep.. dead!

Anyhow, more money to burn - picking up a brand new set of 6 tomorrow.

Same here, had this happen across all the GTRs with 700, 1000 and 1550cc types. Are you sure they are infact seized or just stuck ? How long were they cleaned for ? I have had all different sets injectors which once cleaned for 30mins + unstuck themselves. Sent them to be ultrasonically cleaned and tested and they come back pulsing and flowing fine.

You have the Bosch EV14 1550cc yeah ?

@Duncan I think having the cold side out of the car and sitting on a bench may have contributed to this.

@BK I "could" take them to an injector place however burning time (and money) leaving the car in the shop, so easier to get a new set. Will try clean/service the old set, then sell them to recoup costs.

And yes they're the 1480/1550/1650 (at 4bar) as everyone calls them.

This is making me nervous now, my car has been sitting in the garage for a month now with the two fuel lines that come from the tank just sitting with nothing but a plastic bag zip-tied over the lines as a cap. The injectors are out for servicing but it's going to suck if the fuel absorbs water or something and damages the injectors as soon as I get the car back together.

Yeah fair enough, but I bet there is a high chance to unstlck them and they will not be compromised. I know Bosch and ID actually recommend you to submerge them in fuel when in storage to prevent this (not that I've ever done or seen anyone do that). I have the same EV14 1550cc in the blue 32, but Denso EV1 700cc and 1000cc in the other two - all stuck even from 98.

It's just weird when they do that after sitting and sticking because everytime I've sent them away, (to Adelaide mind you, not just down the road) they clean them first, then flow test them - and then EVERYTIME report there's nothing bloody wrong with them ! Grrr !

It just seems to stick them, not damage them and is completely random. I've had my 33 sit for 2 years without starting it before and not stick. Water getting into fuel and damaging fuel pumps is more likely - I think I'm on my 4th Nismo pump in the 33 in 18 years as they do fail from sitting.

You won't have an issue, as serviced injectors generally would have some lubricant applied.

And once everything is installed and then primed you theoretically should have a closed loop system.

Oh no I made a mistake !  I wouldn't buy a 2021 BMW M8 Competition F93 Auto M xDrive !

Its the 2021 BMW M8 Competition F92 Auto M xDrive I was after ! ! ! 

Don't need four doors . . . . . 

But you, in the end, are correct. Got house buying priorities first at the moment

After sitting so long isn’t it just a “thing you do” to flow up and check the injectors before dyno time? Doesn’t take much variance between them to upset a “highly strung” setup. 

🤷‍♂️

Yeah normally I would, however these injectors probably has seen less than 5000km of use - lesson learnt nevertheless. 

Other than that, DBW works, closed loop idle worked well with a can of start ya bastard sprayed into the throttle 😂

You don't get to post anything in here without a GT-R update and some onboard footage of you banging gears. 

Thanks

On stands, no rego, hot side off and a thick layer of dust. Might come back to it in 4 years.

Building a house. Pushingcash towards that, don’t really have the time to take a toy for a drive at the moment. Last time it was registered I drove it like 3 times.
Life changes, priorities change. It’s a toy. 🤷‍♂️
 

Back to johnnies car. No need to stink up his thread with my dribble.

    • Hey I have a spare CAS unit if you wanted to borrow or buy
    • All issues mentioned are mitigated by running billet gears and a long nose crank. My question pertains more to the oil pump housing differences. I already have an RB25 pump housing I wanted to put billet pump gears in. I was wondering if there's any advantage if I purchase an N1 pump instead and put billet gears into that. Even stranger is I found a link (One in OP) that states the RB25 pump housing is actually preferable which I'm wondering why.   Thanks
    • In the middle of the rb25 upgrade on the rb20. Its actually a Arashi bolt on. Its in and lined up perfect First question is can I use a standard hose as my oil return line? New turbo fitting is shorter and having to  change the line/hose The oil supply/intake hose has a smaller hole than stock. Not sure I should go back with the old one   Any other tips would be appreciated   
    • So just to update: I changed the brushes over and polished the commutator using a 1500 grit sanding sponge; it was super easy to polish being copper. A power tool wasn't necessary, although could have made it easier if you have the finesse to use it well.     Yet this was to no avail, the motor worked as it did before, stop, start, stop start, etc. Today I went to my mechanic's shop to do a few things. I showed him the motor and asked in broken Japanese "who can fix this?", he took it from me and had a crack, was able to fix it-ish. From what I could understand (which is very little), the problem with the motor was with the clutch disc located amongst the gears, I saw it whilst he was working but couldn't identify any issues. I say he fixed it-ish, because now the motor will run continuously when free from the rack, which is great. But once I had reinstalled it, the tilt function would work but the sliding function sounded off, like the motor was under more load than before and the motor was struggling. We're going to pull apart the rack in the new year and see what we can find.  Hopefully this is of some help to others that get sunroof motor issues with their R34, S15 Silvia, or highly unlikely the Z10 cube. I will update this when more progress is made.
    • AFAIK in the RB26 section of the service manual it explicitly says not to take apart the AAC valve. If you took it apart once there's no harm in taking it apart again to see if you can save it.
