That is for card AFMs like R35 ones.

And no, you cannot cut up a plastic AFM (ie, Z32) and weld it to metal.

Shit you’re right, they’re not even expensive $253 brand new genuine. Can it actually be done in practice or is it just a theory. I mean with the wiring and all, do you know how to do it?

Oh yeah, how long are you in Sydney for? Also have u got the wide band, intake temp sensor, pigtail etc?

and how many days will it all take you reckon?

maybe we can work something out where I can leave my car with you and u can install everything like turbo, walbro, injectors etc. I still need to v band the dump pipe and get pipe made or the turbo elbow part and a turbo intake pipe made

Well this has escalated quickly lol. While yes I could install all those parts, it would be much quicker  to have a workshop do it. 

If you had the car ready to go, I'd have it road tuned in a day no problem. 

With the wideband and air temp sensor, they'd be permanently installed in the car and need to be there before it's tuned.

Yeh I’ll probably do that all myself , a workshop would charge thousands for that, I thought maybe u can do mates rates.

but that honestly sounds good, have u got the wideband and air temp sensor?

how long are u gonna be in Sydney for?

I have a spare brand new Haltech / GM fast response air temp sensor and connector here if you need it.

The Haltech WB1 wideband is about $400 from memory.

Guys I said f**k it and bought a nistune for $350. The guy I bought it off didn’t have a case for it, I was wondering if any non neo ecu case eg 33 ecu will house the neo motherboard and nistune chip nice and snug. I only ask cause neo ecu‘a usually go for $150+ and r33 ecus are only $50.

also unrelated question: is the oil pan bolt meant to have a rubber washer on it? Cause mine just have a metal washer ‘welded’ on the bolt. And I only ask cause my oil pan seems to have oil residue all over it.

Coz it don't fit. Different mounting points inside, different loom plug opening.

Ah okay. I can drill new holes for the mounting points but is the loom plug opening smaller or bigger than the neo? Cause either way I can grind it to be bigger and it doesn’t matter if the 33 ecu opening is bigger, if it leaves a gap that’s not a problem

If it's the same as the RB26 the copper washer is going to be stuck to the bolt pretty well, you want to use a knife or a something to pry it out before replacing it. You're supposed to orient the washer as seen in this diagram for a 370Z: 

Actually the standard OEM sump washer is not a copper washer but an aluminium single use crush washer, that's why it goes one way. Large side goes towards the sump.

If you're going to that much effort (ie, buying an R33 ECU just for a case that you then have to modify), either just fold your own up out of 1.2mm sheet steel/ally or put it in a plastic kitchen storage box.

If I’m to do that, is it okay for the bolt and nut to be in contact with the ecu? I just don’t want it surging or shorting out. I was thinking u can get those raised plastic cylinder things to act as a spacer between the ecu and the nut and bolt

    • Hi Guys, my car issues seem to be going from bad to worse and I’m hoping someone can offer some advice. I’m a Brit and have asked for help on the Brit forums but they’re not as active as they once were.    To save my thumbs I’m just going to copy and paste my posts from the Brit forum. I hope this isn’t considered lazy or rude:- 1st post…… For a while now my dash warning lights on my R34 GTT have been coming on. All of the them. When it happens the car runs like a bag of s**t. I pull over. Turn the car off and back on and the problem goes away. It doesn’t happen again for ages and then all of a sudden the dash lights up and the car is struggling. This has become more and more frequent and it’s now pretty much undrivable. I need to sort this out but don’t know where to start looking. A quick search around the forums and I’m thinking maybe coil packs but I don’t want to just change parts for the hell of it. 2nd post…… Ok the latest in the saga……. I decided to replace the spark plugs and coil packs to eliminate them as the problem. I figured they were over 20 years old and could do with being replaced anyway. I’ve just been out to have a go at changing them but the car won’t start. It turns over fine but won’t fire. I had a replacement CAS here so have swapped that out but it still won’t fire. Pretty sure I’m getting fuel to the injectors as I can smell it! Any ideas? Should the coil pack harness have a constant 12v feed once the ignition is on? Can I test this just by putting a meter across the + and ground pins? Is there a relay or something that should give the harness power once the ignition is on? Any ideas/advice would be appreciated. I’m at my wits end. Don’t know where to start looking really???
    • Hi guys, im a Brit who’s been using this forum for a while. I’m after some help so thought I’d come on and introduce myself. my name is Paddy and I’m an old man (46)! I own an R34 GTT in cloud white. Had it a good few years and do enjoy driving it! Also enjoy the attention it gets.  for those of you who are interested I’ve posted a couple of pics. Not the best pics in the world and they seem to of come out worse than the originals but you get the picture   Will post my issues in the relevant forum. I hope you guys can offer some advice.    thanks. 
    • Started installing the meth kit last night, managed to get it mounted so I could still access the awd resevior. Battery is located on other side I figured this was a nice spot for it. Cheers mates.
    • I saw the E in the model number and stopped thinking. Might not be correct there.
    • As soon as I come on boost that rear housing area, along with all the stuff connected to it will get pretty toasty and I'm not the type to race for a whole 10s or so 😘
