  2. hmmm, not quite complimenting for a s14. sorry mate, but its personal choice
  3. Stereotypical driver busted for speeding...

    i was about to say the same thing! but still... what an idiot not really, most parts of welly road is straight and down hill! very easy to get up speed. also he would have been in excess of 130km/h to 140km/h. may have been a gtr and not a gtst as someone said as they are cheap as now and plenty around. so what if its over the power to wieght ratio. majority of members here own cars that are over the power to weight ratio. and many of us have disable the speed restrictor/limiter. the cops were too linient, they should have impounded the car for at least 3 monts (extenuating circumstances are present to bypass the initial 48hr impound period). then they should take him to court and make him have a massive fine (about 5k) as well as court costs and impound and towing fees. then they should take away his priviledge to drive for at least 12 months and also give him about 12 months of a community based order at may be the alfred hospital trauma ward to see first hand the damage road accident have to the human body and the emmotional trauma that follows. angelo

  5. good mechanix in melbourne

    GSB Automotive in glen waverly is good too - for all types of cars.
  6. who's going....

    for sure! to bulla. cos its cheap for me (monash uni has a chalet for staff and students) costs about $120 (from memory) for the week and you get discounted rental and discounted passes for the lifts!
  7. Brake setup on S13

    Next part I would buy would be a bmc stopper from GKtech. It's a excellent upgrade on any S-chassis. Get someone to pump the brake pedal while you watch just how much the firewall flexes and you'll get what I mean.
  8. I'm trying to upgrade my brakes on my 1990 240sx hatchback what pads and rotors should I use? So far I have stainless steel hoses in the front, all 4 new OEM calipers, slotted and drilled rotors and advanced auto gold pads
  9. SR20det grinding noise and no boost

    I've got a horrible grinding noise but mine is apparently in the exhaust, I've got a relatively new turbo so hope its not that lol. I'd love to fix the problem but haven't honestly bothered trying to fix it yet.
  10. Hi, new to this forum and really any car related forums... owner of an s15 spec s, thinking about getting a few upgrades... what should I start with? I know the spec r is much better but couldn’t afford the extra 13k dollars or 1 300 000¥ looking for a bit more boost long term
  11. SR20det grinding noise and no boost

    Sounds turbo related when you put new one on check oil feed lines to turbo for blockages!!
  12. Hello all, I am new here so go easy Okay so I think my SR20det's turbo has reached the end of its life. It is making a loose grinding noise and has negative boost, I am going continue taking the turbo off tomorrow but just wanted to brainstorm. Anyone had anything similar??
  13. Hi, I,m new to this forum. Anyone know would JDM S15 power fc fit in ADM S15 ECU Plug? If does, When can i find wiring diagram for wiring swap?
  14. Not sure what to do

    Yep agreed Keep old engine on a stand and do the stroker plus what ever else while you can still drive the car then

It has 6 airbags fitted for your safety with an ANCAP safety rating of 5.

  16. The easiest way would to be look on Ebay for a S13 "dash cluster surround" that has all of the switches and blanking covers attached with it rather than trying to find just that particular blanking switch.
  17. Not sure what to do

    I vote for just an engine swap. Way cheaper and less downtime, not to mention less hassles.
  18. Hey guys looking for some advice, my sr20det has blows piston rings so need to rebuild question I’m asking I’m torn between either full rebuild with 2.2 stroked, or just do engine swap what’s your thoughts?

    Will the top 10 online casinos in uk be held this year?
  21. Daily Driver S15

    Thanks mate! I wouldn't say I know what I'm do per say; just having a go at making the car suit my vision of the ideal S15. Even though there is a large aftermarket scene for this car I feel the focus on it is very narrow with a main focus on it being performance; Looking for alternatives regarding interior parts and different solutions has left me thinking I need to make my own parts.
  22. Daily Driver S15

    Seems like you know what you're doing. Good luck adding onto this beauty
  23. Daily Driver S15

    Hi all, Thought I'd start a build thread on my S15 to liven up the forum! I bought the car approximately July 2016; it's been a bitter sweet experience thus far. The car has given me such joy with the nimble chassis and rear wheel drive shenanigans (read rotating the rear at every roundabout :p) The story behind acquiring the S15 was one of desire of fun as I'd been burnt-out on my E30 restoration. I'd spend the previous 2 years buying tools and building jigs and tearing down an old BMW E30 to find it was beyond saving and I was beyond caring! The S15 I own is a 99 JDM Spec R. It had the following mods: - Apex-i Power FC - HKS upgraded turbo actuator - Upgraded dump pipe - Pace maker down pipe - 3.5" exhaust to muffler (Exhaust is droney as FCK) - 350Z 17" wheels After buying the car of a brothers friend for a good deal, I soon found the old girl needed a lot of love. First order of business was getting new tires, the current tires were bald - fitted a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 3 (235/45/17). I rate these tires really well and have lasted well for 2 years; the rear set are due for change but that's due to my driving...... 2 months in owning the car, the engine wasn't very responsive to throttle - Took the car to E-Tuner in Campbellfield VIC to be tuned. Spent 3 hours on the rollers to have the drivability issues fixed. The car had a boost leak fixed and the Power FC tuned properly. Car made 188rwkw and 178rwkw on safer boost setting. Soon after having the car tuned I had to change the engine mounts as the gear shifter flopped around - I chose to use Nismo engine and transmission mounts; those two items transformed the shifting feel! Thus far the mod list on the car: - Apex-i PFC - X-Force twin tip muffler - Splitfire Coilpacks - Midnight mods turbo lines - HKS turbo actuator - FMIC - ARC intake - Walbro GS342 fuelpump I'll be adding more in the coming days in other mods done to the car such as my own gear shift boot (made for less than $5). The plan for the car is to get it cleaned up more and add parts that compliment the spirit of the car; my ideal direction is to make it in the spirit of a 911 GT3 or Shelby GT350R - I plan on making my own rear set delete with carpeting to smarten up the rear section. Next mods on my list are: - Whiteline sway bars front & rear along with major suspension bushes - MCA coilover suspension (might go for the purple series) - R32 GTR wheels - wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires - Battery relocation to boot If anyone has any questions about the car any of the mods let me know. Cheers
  24. Datsun/Nissan 1400 Ute

    After almost 2 years I finally have an update. The little datsun ute is getting an L16 transplant. The donor car is a rear-ended Datsun 160Y. Everything is going to be transplanted to the ute. Interior and suspension. I will keep this thread updated over the coming 6 months with photos, info etc.
