Hey everyone. My buddy thinks my R33 GTR might have some slight frame damage. Just took it in for a wheel alignment and these are the results. Is anyone able to clarify this for me? 


The car is running on coilovers and is lowered, it also has adjustable toe arms.

What makes you think there is a problem? It looks normal to me, the first test shows no abnormal unevenness side to side.

Agreed with Dobz.

Cannot say I see anything unnerving there. Would love to hear the reasoning behind your friends' remark.

FYI two things;

Even if you somehow adjust everything on both sides to same degree and minute, the moment you bounce the suspension, everything will likely be off by a couple of minutes again. Rubber bushings.

Things being in the red does not equal things are bad. Lower any car and you get christmas theme on your alignment sheet.

It was really good. Then they went and removed some front camber in the search for more caster and less toe - which probably amounts to no noticeable change. Not bent. Not even slightly bent.

With a lowered car if you want to dial back the negative camber, adjustable upper control arms are a must, both front and rear.  They should also help bringing caster and toe back in the green, but as mentioned in previous replies that's not necessary and your specs look fine.

    • Duncan, Thanks for that. Much appreciated. Cheers, Fred
    • 120mm for a standard r32 gtr or gtst power steer pulley.  
    • Been nothing happening for a while as got the sil80 going and been trying to decide what direction to go but have been doing the important things like painting cam cover and making heat shield for the turbo.  Fitted some more lights to the work area in the shed and converted to LEDs. Heaps better with the extra lights.  Pulled out the ecu and loom this week to start planning a new loom with extra sensors and inputs.  Considering going DBW as liking it on the other car. So will have to send ecu back to link for modding.  Car is booked in to get the engine bay and under side blasted end of July so have to get a move on stripping. 
    • Yep - I have had three different EFR's - and still run an 8474.  All have had this casting issue and I didn't like it either.   The Turbo's perform well - but its disappointing to see this lack of quality control - and yes it does make you naturally wonder if there are other problems that you can't see. I think that Borg Warners attitude to "its fine, and doesn't stop it working" is not a good thing.  As others above have said, other manufacturers seem to get their castings nice and tidy and you would expect that the top of their line be well finished.   Maybe BW should have a read of this thread and think about it for Version 2.0.     PS.  I've had 8374 and 8474 back to back on same engine - and I can say that in my experience the 8474 definitely does not spool as quickly as the 8374.   I can say this from dyno charts, seat of the pants feel, logging and track times.   The 8474 does exactly what you would expect:  Spools a bit later (200-300rpm), and makes a bit more power up top.         
    • Will do, thanks.   Do you know from memory which of these two plug (red marker) is for reverse switch ? also what is other one for ?
