  1. Greetings and salutations my fellow brethren-whom-spend-way-too-much-money-on-our-vehicular-enthusiasms, Up for sale is a set of SSR Vienna Courage deep dished rims in Superchrome. Specs are: 5x114.3 so will fit Evos, 5 stud Silvias, Skylines and Ford XR. 2x 18x95 +22 in normal disk type up front wrapped in Nankangs with reasonable tyres 2x 18x11.5 +18 in hyper dish disk type at rear wrapped in thrashed Dunlops Info - clearing brakes These rims narrowly clear S14/S15 brakes all round. For non Brembo skylines you will need 5mm slip-on spacers at the rear as the disks will foul up against the rear calipers although they will only JUST - so machined calipers may just clear. The clearance between rim blades and caliper is surgically small which makes room for maximum dish. Front calipers clear okay, but most likely not with Brembo brakes. Info - clearing rails/ and guards Clearing the fronts should be no issue. You'll need to have rolled guards with deleted inner splash guards. On my RPS13, the fronts fouled against one of the seams at the front end due to the large amount of caster, however this can be easily fixed with some massaging. I think this means it'll fit fine on Skylines. The rears is where it gets interesting. These rims will clear S14 and S15 rear chassis rails fine. However with S13/RPS13 sporting 5 stud conversions, these rims will foul against the rear chassis rails if the car is slammed with camber. I had bottomed out HKS coilovers with -4 degrees camber on the rear and experienced fouling when going over small bumps. To alleviate this, you will need larger spacers on the rear which then of course will mean you will push the wheels further out. I think 25mm spacers would have been more than adequate. This means that although S14/S15 can fit these rims with a moderate amount of flaring, S13/RPS13 will need a fair bit more flare (because of the larger spacers) to fit. Look at photos for reference. I hear that Skylines have less room from hub to rails in the rear versus Skylines. I'm not sure, but if this is true, then you will need bolt on spacers. Ideally, these rims will look the sex on a widebody kit. Info - price and delivery $2000 for the set. Quite firm. They're awesome rims so I'm not going to simply give 'em away scabby lowballers. I'll throw in a pair of 5mm slip on spacers to clear skyline rear calipers. Pick up from Wetherill Park by day or Regents Park by night. I'll deliver them if you're willing to do your own research on freight for 4 wheels freighted from Sydney Metro.
  2. My tuner must be good then... I've got JEC1000s and I've yet to fault them... startup, idle, transient throttle on, transient throttle off, pedal pumping when slipping clutch (eg slow 3 point turn up a hill in the wet) WOT haven't had any issues whatsoever... Free plug to Chea at Powertune hehe
  3. S15 Rear Brakes - Upgrade

    Cheers bud, Will your standard BMC work? Short answer is yes, however you will get a bit of a spongy pedal which can get a bit sketchy when braking from high speed. It doesn't hurt to upgrade your BMC, esp if you can find a GTR BMC for cheap. I would upgrade simply because you're going to flush all that brake fluid through the system anyway, you might as well overhaul. You won't notice too huge of a difference on straight line braking, but your handbrake is going to lock up like a hero now
  4. HubCentrics spacers again!

    I was on 8mm slip-on-no-hub-ring spacers for yonks... Absolutely no issue. Got them off some laser cutter on ebay as they were the only 8mm I could find. Currently on -1.0 on my rears for uber square contact patch, coz hellaflush is ghey... Says I after YEARS of hellaflushin'.. .What was I thinking?
  5. S15 Rear Brakes - Upgrade

    1) Yes 2) Yes 3) Yes with modification to the caliper (remove olive) 4) Recommend yes esp if you have front brake upgrade I did a full write up on this years ago... Read here
  6. Top mount vs low mount.

    Np, Look at two turbos Precision 5130 GTX2863 or GTX2967 Can read about them on the link I provided The Precision has made 320+rwkW on E85 and cams. The fuel pump hit the wall and wouldn't flow any more fuel than that. If you had a twin in-tank setup or surge tank, I'd imagine you could go more It's a bolt in-turbo too. Will sit exactly as your GT2871r. Recommend aftermarket manifold, intake pipe and no exhaust restrictions.
  7. Straight Pipe vs 100 Cell Cat

    Power gains on 100 cel vs straight pipe depends on the boost you're making. If you're on e85 and running 30+psi, the difference will be a lot more than when running 21psi on 98RON. Eg. Precision 5130 made 250rwkW on 98RON @ 22psi and 320+rwkW on E85 @ 30psi on an SR20DET (Fuel pump maxed out on E85). On the same setup except with the presence of a mid-muffler (a bit different to a Cat but related nonetheless), the setup made 250rwkW on 98RON @24psi but only 270rwkW on E85 (Wouldn't make any more than that over 24psi). That's right. Very little difference on 98RON, MASSIVE difference on E85. Bottom line: Difference in performance will vary on your setup. Small setup, small difference, big setup, big difference.
  8. Top mount vs low mount.

    To the OP... High mounting a 2871 is pointless. One of the strongest advantages of that turbo is that it is a low-mount, stock-positioned turbo. Read this for more info on low-mount turbo options and you'll see that 2871r pretty much has only just that going for it. High-mount it and you've lost the best brownie point that turbo has. GT2871r and 300rwkW do not belong in the same sentence. 300rwkW = e85 if using a low-mount turbo... And you'll need at least a GTX3071, Precision 5130 or a Super Duper for that.
  9. GTX3067

    GTX3076 on 2.0L S15 with cams and e85 is about as laggy as a GT2871R with standard cams, shit exhaust and on 98RON
  10. I've got these in mine... They work great. I'll be tuning on E85 soon too so should have a bit more data than "They work great". Will be tuning on this turbo. http://maximalperformance.blogspot.com.au/2014/05/super-duper-finally-gets-fitted.html#gpluscomments
  11. JEC 1000cc injectors are pah-lenty... They're side feed so no need for fuel rail. You'll idle like a purring cat too. I never really got why people went massive fuel rail when still on 98RON when there were 800cc sidefeeds going around. Now there are 1000 and 1200 drop in side feeds, I'm even more clueless why there are still fuel rail kits on 98RON tuned cars
  12. Yeah there were a few turbos that went out with the oil return facing upwards towards the manifold that needed to be re-oriented to fit right. Precision oil drain doesn't match up with Garrett however Garrett oil drains can be easily modified to fit. Exactly as you said, machine the two bolt-up points. That setup should do it. Make sure there are no mid mufflers. Different class turbos. They're old tech forged wheels. Great turbos nonetheless. Precision 5130 will give you more growing room if you ever decide to switch to E85. GTX28-anything will outperform the older GT2871R. Again, billet front wheel (not to mention different blade design) versus old forged steel. But like the GTX2863, the GTX2867 won't be bolt-on. Will need new intake, new hot side pipe. Correct re: Intake pipe. Big boost with rubber intake is always gonna be sketchy haha
  13. Mickey Thompson Tyres

    R32GTR rims all the way. Otherwise you can get cheap 8 inch 16s from classifieds section of most automotive forums. They're a common size.
  14. s14a fuel cut

    1 house point to Johnnilicte hehe
  15. 2000cc aka 2200cc Bosch injectors aren't the greatest item ever invented (note I didn't say aren't the greatest item on the market). We're yet to come across a better injector for custom fuel rails. I have seen some promising ones from Europe (I think it was a Siemens) however the mass numbers just weren't there. What turbo your running on what engine? I'm assuming it's SR20DET from your DP. 2200cc injectors are huge. Are you looking to make 400+rwkW on E85?
