What's Going On With Everyones Cars?

Recommended Posts

Noticed we go off topic about it in pretty much every thread so thought I'd post this up.

Currently I have no idea how my line is going, haha, to lazy to check and enjoying the cheap mileage in the mazda. But the clutch FINALLY arrived last tuesday and that was the only thing left to get in before it all goes together. So shouldn't be far (I hope).

Well my car is still the POS it was yesterday, and the day before that and the day before that.

Still haven't had time or place to fit the FMIC or the oil cooler and as they are not on i have not put the Power FC back in nor have i had it tuned :P

Now with the new job offer and my change in plans (looking buying a Q) i think it maybe time to sell the car and buy a van and pimp that so i got something to put the new toy in when i can afford it :)

When you coming down to use the kart TIMMAY :)

Cheers B

The poor old redtop RB20DET in my R31 coupe cracked the shits...

Cylinder 1 - 130psi

Cylinder 2 - 130psi

Cylinder 3 - 130psi

Cylinder 4 - 130psi

Cylinder 5 - 130psi

Cylinder 6 - 0psi

Plus turbo is stuffed. So it hasn't moved in nearly 2 months. Anyone got a cheap RB20DET? doesn't matter, haven't got any money anyway, lol.

OK, I figured I should add my bit as it is way to quite in the Tassie section!

Well, I got my car... R32 GTS-t

It came with an exhaust, pod filter (had to replace it as it had eaten itself), tomie boost gauge, tomie steering wheel, 17" Impul rims, alpine headunit and 12 stacker, racing harness, strut brace and turbo timer.

So far I have removed the spoiler...

Installed a boost controller...

Purchased some side skirts... still have to paint them, have some rear pods on the way.

Fitted a front mount intercooler...

Intercooler%20001.jpg

Have purchased an aluminimum D1 Piping kit, still waiting for it to arrive.

I have also purchased an alarm system, lowered springs, stock suspension (with low k's) and am about to give it a full service including timing belt, brake pads/machining rotors, plugs, oil, coolant flush, gearbox oil, brake fluid and I think I will get the timing checked (after the belt).

Plans for the near future include tint, further stereo upgrades (just put in a TV, stacker and sub) I just got 2 12" subs and am looking at a boot build up next week as I have a week off... I probably get a T04 Turbo and high mount manifold and run around 17-20psi (until it goes pop :angry: )

I will stop going on now but thanks for reading!

I love having a turbo again and love the Skyline!

well with no other internal mods you can probably expect it to go pop pretty quick :(

Looks the goods though mate. You are getting the side skirts painted silver though yeah?

Ha Ha, yeah... I will paint them silver, and the pods at the same time. Also will have to do the mirrors, the front lip and some interior highlights!

Don't expect it to last long running that much boost, but will give me an excuse to rebuild with forged internals! :D

Should look heaps better dumped and with the skirts!

My new boost controller arrived yesterday (Blitz Dual SBC Spec-R), and I installed it last night. I had a quick play round with the settings last night, and it's pretty close to what I want, just need to fine tune the gain.

And I ordered this stereo surround last night, as the previous owner of my car, cut the cigger ligher and ash tray out.

    Damn shame, sorry to hear... it's sad to think some people think this is worth doing!!

    Looks like I am a lucky one and after pushing a little :) I will be refunded (touch wood). Will let you know how things go, and will make sure I can trust the person before handing over any cash!
