Hi All...

Just wonderin' if anyone has dealt with Johnson's Performance Centre in Thomastown. I plan to get some turbo work done and need feedback from customers that have had work done by them. Maybe some results pre and post upgrade??.. I've been told good things, but i'm lookin' more opinions...

I sourced my 'shortlist' by searching "Turbo" in the Yellow pages so I guess that wasn't the most complete of approaches. I've called around and was quoted a varying number of prices.... just about all of the businesses I contacted where "strictly" turbo shops (if there is such a thing)... I haven't contacted either of those that you've mentioned... might be worth the call tho for my own piece of mind.....

I've been watchin' that thread with interest... quite informative and would've saved me alot of time if there were threads with similar info on other garages as well. At the very least, it would've saved me a few hours instead of doing kamikaze searches on a few forums and makin' phone calls.

JPC. No thank's not again. 4 days to do a cam belt, no phone calls, did the work first before telling me what was wrong with it and then almost having heart failure from the price. Oh by the way $550 to do a cam belt supply and fit. Should have gone to a doctor would have charged less.....................................

do all the work on my car, great service great prices

they can build your engine in a week

benny even did my boost controller for free, perk of getting all your work done by him

I've just gotten back from Chasers then. Good setup there. Just watched Benny make up a custom stainless system for a B4 Legacy, very nice ;)

After seeing their work I'd also recommend them.

my 2 reccomendations:

For high spec tuning, modifications and repairs etc go to Genesis Racing. Talk to Craig there, he's literally an encyclopedia of tuning. Bass Junky went there recently with his R34 and was very happy.

The other is Creatd. Good for general tuning, and other not so top end work. Quality service too. Talk to skylinegeoff, he's a keen customer who goes back for more.

Not much difference really, Ben does know a hell of a lot about GTR's and track racing them (among other things).

I'd take my car to either workshop anytime with no worries in the world

A lot of people either use Race Pace or ICE and no-one has dramas that i know of

whats your thoughts on ICE performance vs Race Pace... I got my car tuned last time at ICE but i have been HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended to stay at Race Pace...

Any thoughts??

I would also advise against going to Ice...just my personal experience.

Everywhere will have good and bad experiences come from it....this is just one.

All the best! and happy new year! :-)

    • Hey just wanting to know if a R34 gtr wheel hub will bolt onto a R34gt rear knuckle?  I am doing a 350z lsd conversion and I came across an issue with the rear axles fitting into the wheel hub as the spline count is different. I think the r33/4 (GTR)wheel hubs are 32 spline while the standard 3x2 rear axles are about 28,  the 350z rear axles I’m using are also 32 spline so I don’t see why it won’t fit apart from where the hubs bolt onto the knuckle  I am not 100% sure about any of this and would like some info before I go mix n match and help would be appreciated.🙏  
    • There is none when used in the radius rods. I am a strong advocate of sphericals in that location.
    • Oh damn, thats seriously cool. I have the Thrustmaster T248 which is the entry level one. Its really good but I have no basis for comparison as I've never used a better one. I'd like to change the pedals for the pressure ones (cant remember the name) and get a proper frame and seat because I just have a stand for the pedals and wheel now and I need to brace them against things so they dont move when I'm trying to pull up after a long straight! 🤣 EDIT: These ones; https://www.thrustmaster.com/products/t-lcm-pedals/
    • Pulled the lazy pin and ordered the 4 new calipers for just over $600
    • My son will go for his driver's licence next year so he thrashes GT7 all the time (with the wheel, pedals and shifter). As a result he's always talking about updates etc so I play quite a bit too.  A few times every week. The regular updates are awesome. I mainly just do time trials vs my son. The current hotness here is the Aston Martin Valkyrie around Nordschleife @ 5:38.9
