Members Rides

Recommended Posts

Hey guys i think its about time we started up our own local members rides thread.

basically all u need to enter are the details of the mods done, perhaps what u have planned and most importantly some PICS!!!

should come in handy for us to put some rides to peoples names, and essentially help us to get to know more bout each other and our cars.

lets try to keep it as clear of clutter as possible so try not to hold conversations if possible) and hopefully if we get a few posts it can be made into a sticky.

anyway heres mine to get us started.


fully stock

Why not...

I'm Graham, 17 i own a black '96 R33 GTS-T. Got pics of it in my gallery and also here http://gossie.actewagl.net.au

Current mods are just what the previous owner put on it... from memory;

- Kakimoto Exhaust System

- Cusco Front + Rear Strut Bar

- Pod Fliter


- NISMO Dashboard

- Turbotimer

That's about it i think. Nothing too serious. Planned mods

- New stereo system (putting that in at Christmas) Clarion headdeck + Alpine 6.5" rears

- 17" or 18" wheels... that won't happen for a while though

- Subwoofer(s) + amp

I don't get to drive it till November though, it's my 18th pressie. If you see it on the roads though give a wave, it'll prolly be one of my parents driving with me in the passenger seat :)

Some mods it came with, some I’ve bought and installed myself

Plans to upgrade the turbo and the fuel pump [and maybe a FC with hand controller].

Finally got a picture of the Stagea !!

Mods include...... nothing !! Totally bone stock standard :( Oh, expect for the (just put on today) R34 GTt wheels.

But it does have the full black leather interior and duel sunroofs if that counts for something.

My long term goal is 200awkw :) It'll be a total sleeper, the only exterior mods will be the wheels.

    • Been slack lately. Have done a lot but achieved nothing if that makes sense?  I'm playing around with a few ideas which are time and brain cell destroying... What I have done first- Make an alloy pointer for pin point timing. Will most likely powdercoat it then put a white/silver tip. Powdercoated a few more bits and pieces for installation.  Temp fit the exhaust manifold and turbo so I can make the PRP turbo oil drain fit out of the car. Needed to order some new fittings for the block so waiting on those. Had to get the intake plenum flange machined as it was warped from when it was welded up in production.  Snapped the dipstick tube off in the block. Don't want to talk about it.... Sump off AGAIN and dipstick tube ordered..... Started rewiring the engine from the engine end also AGAIN, allowing for some additional inputs plus that leads onto the next part I'm still pondering.... So I want to somewhat "wire tuck" the engine bay and there really isn't a nice place to put bulkhead fittings on the drivers side to stop any wires running across the back of the firewall. So......  What I'm thinking is having 2 bulkhead fittings remote mounted under the brake booster and pretty much out of sight that also enable easy removal of the engine (cause GT-R....).  I haven't entirely convinced myself it's the right option yet but strongly leaning that way.  Feel free to offer your thoughts or rain down the hate! 😅 Made a few templates and trial runs to get it to where I think it would work if I do it-   I've pretty much resigned to the fact that I'm painting the engine bay too.... 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️  
    • That is correct Dasmbo, the machine shop that examined it said few journals would have to be welded and built up, then machined back. The damage had the machinist questioning the integrity of a few of the cam cap retaining bolt locations... Basically said if it was a Ferrari, sure, the money and time would be worth it. Not for an RB26 head.
    • Resolution to the question. While still waiting for those closer photos of the journals/caps, I got into contact with the guy from the repair shop, and he outlined pretty much what Brett/R32-25t said, though in a very diplomatic manner 😅 Head is not worth the money seller wants, maybe only worth as a very cheap experiment to someone with the means and the time to try something crazy on. A bit more to the story, but another case of making sure people should do their homework before buying anything second hand, and again making me very grateful this site exists.  
    • Im sure the head can be repaired but it not just a simple close and hone of the journals and caps the head will have to be stripped alloy journal areas will have to be welded and built up then if all goes well will have to be machined new caps cams guides possible valves lifter buckets it wont be a cheap job i hope for your sake you have very deep pockets. I would be looking for another head i think it would be much cheaper try Lewis engines see what they might have or can do for you they did my head and it wasnt damaged like the one your looking at and my head cost me over $5000.00 seven years ago 
    • HFM ae going to get a price for me on some 18x10 +10 forged rims, I' impressed they are even willing to entertain the idea.
