  1. Cost of a 1JZGTE Cressida?

    Find a cheap ( defected, beat up etc) S13 with a CA18DET. Spend money on suspension and only basic engine mods. Try to buy things that you can reuse in a later car. Easy to move up to SR20DET S13 from there, swap motors or if you're fussy get a good shell an swap your shit in.
  2. Cost of a 1JZGTE Cressida?

    Don't forget the labour involved in fitting and wiring said motor, which OP might be able to do himself.
  3. Could have been mine? Mine's two tone dark green and grey, but it's a 4 door
  4. Intercooler Install

    What you wrote was well said! Workshop I'm at it's $135 an hour for me to work on a customer's car. Top deal, assuming it's including the battery
  5. 33 S1 manual sedan. You turn the key to crank it, and nothing. Dash lights on, AFCR comes on, fuel pump primes etc. Starter motor doesn't even give it a shot. Battery is new, and vehicle started on it till now. Checked starter fuse, it's fine. Checked battery voltage, it's fine. voltage at engine bay fusebox is fine. Voltage at starter motor is fine. Checked continuity on starter motor earth, it's fine. With ignition on, immobilizer off, I bridged the starter motor and it spins like mad, but doesn't start the car. Vehicle roll starts. Anyone have any ideas? I'm leaning towards immobilizer but I really can't be f**ked chasing electrical problems tonight. Wanted to see if anyone picks anything obvious I might have forget to check/missed Cheers
  6. Attempted theft of HR31

    Then you'll have the *milkshakes* drive through your front lawn and off the curb no doubt!
  7. i need an engine

    You figured that rebuilding is the way to go but you don't wanna spend money? If you're gonna rebuild, do it properly so you only have to do it once. If I were you, I'd get just getting a second hand block and throwing it in or just replacing the motor with a second hand one. I'm sure they're only worth their weight in steel.
  8. Thanks gryph, but topbloke's got me covered! This is sad.
  9. Love your work mate! Unfortunately belt is f**ked too, so I've pried the alternator above the bracket and stuck the bolt in! I'll get a new belt brought to my work tomorrow, and I'll still come grab that bolt off you tonight! Thanks a lot!
  10. Can't leave work to get there. Also doubt they'd stock something like this.
  11. So I was about to replace the alternator on my TR magna daily. It was a little rusty. Got ye old tools out....and snapped the f**king *milkshake* of a tensioner bolt's head right off trying to BACK the *milkshake* off! I haven't got time to hit up a wreckers during trading hours. Has anyone got one of the piece of shit 2.6L magnas chillin' at home dead or something? Paying cash for one stupid bolt! Mods please leave this up for a couple hours if you can...
  12. A turban doesn't conceal a person's face. It's not a balaclava for f**k's sake. Not allowing them to wear turbans is actually racist and believe it or not, racism is against the law. I don't think it has anything to do with racism. It has to do with a private venues Dress Codes. Wearing a brand name shirt into a club doesn't harm anyone and it doesn't conceal anything, yet there's club's out there that won't let you in because of it. Granted, a turban should've been allowed, but you've got to understand that the staff were just following company policies. That's not racism, that's just them protecting their jobs. I understand that man, but you'd really think that in this day and age this kind of stuff wouldn't be happening. If a person at a hotel lost their job over allowing a sikh with a turban to enter I'm certain ACA would love to hear about it, not to mention the lawsuit they'd have on their hands for unfair dismissal. It has to have something to do with racism in the end mate. My mother worked many years at a 5 star restaurant here in adelaide. They've always allowed turbans to be worn, regardless of their no headwear policy. This is out of respect for the people's religion. And they've had many important people go through. Even ones with turbans. Screw ACA. They blow it up into something that it isn't. The person who asked the sikh to remove his Turban was just uneducated, not racist. It isn't anything to do with racism, it's more to do with discrimination. It is common knowledge in most venues that Turban's are ok due to cultural and religious reasons and the fact it doesn't conceal identity. So this is one off situation where a staff member literally had no idea and was just following policy. Imagine a hotel, strict on staff and ensuring they all follow procedures. They interpret a rule that states NO HEADWEAR as exactly that. The rule does not ever state "No Headwear, except the following; turbans, burqas, chadris, niqab, hoodies" Why? Because WHEN DOES IT END???? You've got to be fair here. Most people in Australia wouldn't even know what religion is associated with wearing a Turban (just look in this thread). Most people don't understand EVERY religion, their belief's or their culture. This DOES NOT make people racist, it just means they are uneducated. IMO, by calling these uneducated people racist is highly insulting. Reverse racism even. If they knew the depths of the religion and understood it, then i'm sure the tune would change. Just like in this hotel incident. Which is why the hotel is apologizing. The fact that such a small incident like this has blown up to the level it has, is IMO appalling. It's like the media blowing up an incident were 1 Import Driver was caught speeding. Let's break this down. 1. Staff member asks sikh to remove turban to keep in line with the 'no headwear' rule. 2. Sikh refuses, and therefore left the premises. 3. Sikh complains to media, hotel, etc (rightly so) 4. Hotel issues apology. 5. Situation Over. Why the hell is it still being discussed? 1. We know the hotel/staff member was in the wrong 2. An apology was issued by the hotel 3. This situation rarely happens. Why? Cause a lot of people are educated on the turban and associated beliefs. Issue lies with your number 2. He doesn't refuse and leave the premises, he refuses and is EVICTED. That's not exactly the same thing. Being uneducated isn't really an excuse. Hell, I'm 20 and not indian nor religous myself. Yet I'm perfectly aware of their religous views. Furthermore, was this person evicted by an uneducated member of staff? Why did this staff member not consult a manager? Was staff member in question a manager? If so, what is his/her excuse for being uneducated on the matter. Hospitality treads a fine line. Being uneducated is a poor excuse.

I'm with sid280 and everyone else. Glavas, no-one is not allowing this guy to wear his turban, he simply has to abide by the rules. If he doesn't like it too bad. Just like places have dress codes for thongs and other sorts of clothing. People need to harden the f**k up and stop playing the 'racist' card. What difference does it make if he's allowed to wear a turban or not? Mate, it is racism whether you want to admit it or not. It's part of their religion. Hell, in retail where I've worked they've got a no jewelery policy. Yet wedding rings and crosses are allowed. Exceptions made for christian specific things. Of course, the same workplace disallows headwear, but allows turbans. You can't ask a religion to change purely because you don't like headwear worn in a hotel. Maybe, if it were disguising a person or making it difficult to see their face ( in a wa which a hat can) but it doesn't.
