  1. Did you fit a-pillar braces up under the front guards? Shame Zenith isn't still around, the ones I have fitted are a really nice bit of kit and the suspension guy I use said its the tightest s-chassis he's experienced given no stitch welding on the chassis and no cage. http://www.sillbeer.com/blog/entry/brace_positions/
  2. With the R33 Brembos in mine and standard S13 booster (I think), I've got a bit too much rear bias using the N1 GT-R BM50 BMC. Using Nismo pads that came with the calipers prior at the moment, so I could potentially change bias by playing with pad hardness. May look at something with a bigger booster, but I need to research that further.
  3. Probably get the manifold and rear housing coated yup, any recommendation? Do the dump and front pipe while you're at it to keep the heat out of the engine bay.
  4. You going to get all the hot bits ceramic coated?
  5. @boost_bus180, that sounds like a logical way of testing bias. Does it matter if the brakes are up to working temp or not?
  6. Afraid not, I highly doubt there was any difference. Just same specs, from different manufacturers. For the balance on my car, I find it a little rear biased on track. I have Nismo pads in, and even when I stand on the pegs, I'm unable to get a lock up at all, but it does pull up great, with perfect feel when up to temp. Considering trying some softer pads in the front to tweak the balance slightly.
  7. The N1 GT-R BMC is a BM50. I used it on SILLBEER with R33 GT-R Brembos and the standard booster. Being non-ABS it just bolted up. http://www.sillbeer.com/blog/entry/brake_master_cylinder_upgrade/ That post has all the part numbers etc just in case. It's probably more expensive, but definitely a lot less dickin' around. Keep up the top work.

    As a matter of fact its my hard earned cash like any of you guys out there, and I do think twice or may be even three times before buying stuffs. I'm just telling these guys base on my own previous experiences not just with Mazworx but others over the years. Hell I even have companies don't want my business, even with money waving in front of their faces literally. Ditto here when I was building SILLBEER. People thought I was cashed up, but the simple fact was that I was working two jobs (main job paid mortgage/family, second lot of work at night paid for the build) and did quite a bit on contra too.
  9. RONE, don't sell mate. You've chosen to walk a long path, and along the way you will lose motivation/focus. Have a rest and then come back to it again. See my comments on this previously, keep at it. If police attention is going to be a real problem for you, get it engineered if you haven't already. If you do sell, you will regret the decision, and just start again later on with a new project. Once you're a modder, always a modder.

    What are the options with a Z32 box, I guess it's custom mod the bellhousing vs an adaptor kit (such as the Powertune SR-RB kit)?

    Like when batman starts his car...it was meant to be a little joke.

    Damn, I wanted to hear like a turbine start up and a wooshing sound before you hit the ignition...better edit the sound on that video.
  14. No problem RONE. Having been through a similar process, I can honestly say that I lost interest many times throughout the build. What helped was having the plan drawn up in the beginning having a target to aim for on the finished product. I've been just enjoying sillbeer now for the last few years and its great knowing that I built this (well most of it), just completed about 20,000kms since it was put on the road and it's still pretty damn tight. Keep on it, and keep us informed, as your followers will be sure to provide support (as they did with me) along the way. Cheers Brendan
  15. RONE, you're doing a f**king masterful job in keeping and restoring this Silvia in the way you are. Your OCD is admirable. Keep it up, and never lose site of the end game...enjoying it. Cheers Brendan
