  1. I'm pretty sure I'll go for the pin cams ecause I ha e heard so much good a out them and I don't want to change my valves or springs.... But I still think there could be an alternative test to a 0-100km test that could give you an idea on bottom end pickup. Maybe 0-3000rpm is more relevant as that is where most people would change. Anyway I don't care, was just a thought about coming up with a simple standard like 0-100 for gauging low end pick up. So you could be like "omg that guy does 10s to 70kmh, the only difference between his and my car is that he has a higher ratio diff, that means I can improve my pickup by changing the diff ratio." and prett much no other use than that.... Good day sir!
  2. Its only meant to be a rough guide. Instead of "it pulls ok up to 3.5k then goes hard." And how would road surface matter? Your not goin to lose traction.
  3. Hey Guys, Have been trying to decide whether to get poncams or go step 2 procams, and guessing about how much low end power I will lose and therefore drive ability on the street. Basically, people will say, less power up to 3000rpm or gets boost from 2000rpm, but really that doesn’t give you any indication of how that will affect you when you take off from the standstill. So, what I propose is a 0 - 70KMPH test, only using up to 2500rpm. If you list the mods you have and then your best 0-70 time, you can get an idea on how much a turbo, cams, pistons, flywheel, weight and gearbox can have on your cars pick up. Therefore make a more informed decision on the upgrades you choose!!!! Anyway I'm completely ready to be flamed the shit out of, especially because I haven't used the search function... Car: 92 Nissan 180sx Engine: SR20DET Internals: Stock Turbo: GT28RS .64 rear housing Cams: standard Flywheel: stock Weight: 1284kgs Gearbox: Stock ratio Power: 200kw at the wheels Diff ratio: stock 0-70KMPH Time: 12.50s

  7. Hey mate, I have stock 180 front guards and front bar. one front guard is a bit damaged, but not bad. Cheers, Darren
  8. I will have to smell it again... i thought it was rubbery though. I doubt the spacer's would have been put on so I bet that is the problem. Ill have a look tomorrow, thanks for your help.
  9. Hey guys, I have just bought a VL with an rb20 in it, and it needs some work. started it today and let it get up to opperating temp and the cam angle sensor started to smoke... atleast i think it was the CAS smoking, the car doesn't have a timing cover on it and the smoke was coming from the sensors side. I dont know much about rb20's, does the sensor have a bearing that can go or anything? i have no idea... thanks, Darren

  12. sup guys, http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=EhoQExVRx5E Some footage from our last drift day. If you want to get involved in drifting in darwin go to www.teda.com.au lots of useful information on there.
  13. its a bit smoother, but doubt there is any extra power, hopefully it will get extra power after the tune. I always thought that spark plugs were pre-gapped to the specific application, but now i know Thanks for the help
