Identifying driveshafts and tailshaft?

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up some spares for the GTR. Or at least, I was told everything I was getting was from a GTR which during the conversation turned into "oh yeah that might be from the silvia...or the ae86...".

Anyway, I know the pair of rear driveshafts on the left are GTR (although the lengths are a little different to my spares, I think that is just slack in the CV), but what are the pair on the right? 

They are similar length but 2x3 bolt instead of 6x1 bolt, and have a very different flange at the diff end (pointed not flat). Diameter is 28mm vs 30mm for the GTR ones


Also, this random 2 piece drive shaft was also included....can anyone identify, perhaps silvia or AE86 or possibly early evo? Length from flange to end of gearbox shaft is approx 1330mm


Any ideas?

    • VP race fuel like VP 109 ron unleaded is a waste of money compared to E85. Just go flex fuel setup so you can run on pump unleaded or E85 all without draining tanks or switching tunes. You go VP race fuel you will have to change tune when using it, then change back to a pump unleaded tune. VP109 for example will support about the same boost and timing increaes as E85, but it requires the afr's to be a lot leaner than E85 but richer than pump unleaded.
    • Whats your budget? Maybe call Nispro in QLD for quote - they build a lot of VQ and have a turbo kit in development - but id say at least 20k to do it right - oh actually maybe do LS swap will be cheaper but....hmm  im a purist - so id rather stick to VQ35DE or whats the point lol.... just my opinion - do what u want. its your car  
    • Ok sorry I should rephase my question. But good answer haha.  How can I make 400whp that isn't using nitrous. 
    • dyno run would be on VP race fuel or e85 / e98, E85 is not easily accessible by me. Closest pump is 30 min in a direction I do not travel. So while I will go out to get it. It will also get pump gas 93 octane is highest avilable in US so overall power will be down if mix fuels  e50, e30, e10 ect 
    • Cheapest way? Spray. A wet kit with 200hp jets could be up and running for less then $2000. Then its about $16 per pound when its time to refill your bottle.
