  1. Which Tig?

    Anyone used a Renegade? http://www.tradetools.com/products/WSE200FC It looks alright, it's fairly cheap and I can lay buy it haha.
  2. EDIT: I was drunk when I wrote this the first time, I thought I was heaps funny. Hi! I purchased my slut of a machine from a dealer in '08 (before I knew anything about Silvias) with an auto and a CA, my missus promptly named it Rosie (gay) I bought it coz it had a sweet leather interior, I talked the salesman down $3000 and it went way harder than my falcon which I'd just burnt... I suppose my intention at the start (which is still my intention) was just to have a quick streeter that looked completely stock from the outside and do it relatively cheap (haha). I was an apprentice carpenter at the time so it was a bit of a silly purchase but I thought I could buy a work ute with the left over money. It turns out the only thing I can do with extra money is piss it up the wall, so this was carting what few tools I had around. I don't have any photos of when I just got her because I didn't own a camera haha. This one was was about 3 months later. Then about a week after the warranty ran out the head warped because of a $2 heater hose with a pinhole in it, that I was gonna "get around to" so $2 turned into $5000 for an SR halfcut and labour (not so cheap) Once I'd started researching into Silvias I realised I should've got one with an SR from the start so if it still had a working CA I probably would have sold it on... This was about a cracked dash and faded paint later because it was sitting in the weather for f**kin ages as the workshop that was doing the swap had bulk smokos to do. So then I did what everyone was doing with their free $900 from KRudd and bought a HPI intercooler and a catch can... Then I bought a HDI EBC. I keep defending these but the gauge blinds you at night and the controller sets itself to whatever the fark it wants sometimes. Then I bought a maybe fake Tomei dump, a T28BB turbo, and an Earl's turbo line kit (that is definitely not alfoil around the oil return). Then nothing. Then in 2010 I washed her. So I got a tune a few weeks ago and it got 164kw and 1200nm of torque. (yea don't know how either) In no particular order I bought a Midnight Mods short shifter, an emanage ultimate and harness, Walbro FP, GKtech front pipe, Tein HA coilies, 3" exhaust with Xforce cannon, Sard FPR, GKtech washer bottle, RAS, 4 to 5 stud adapters for the rear, solid rear subframe spacers, some blue hoses, a new clutch master, second hand starter motor, an Odyssey battery, a Z32 AFM, TechEdge WB02 controller and meter, rear camber arms, front castor arms, an ARK design MFD, some other shit that old cars need, some Federal 595 RSR's. I'll write out a list of parts and put some current pics up soon. Cheers!
  3. ^Yup Remove dump to front nuts then oil feed/return, coolant feed/return from block (or wherever you can reach), disconnect 02 sensor plug, boost solenoid line, plus whatever else I've forgotten, then manifold and remove as a unit. Go easy on the turbo nuts/studs and especially manifold nuts when taking it out, get all new studs & nuts, get heat wrap for dump, get a new 02 sensor (may as well), get a braided turbo line kit, get all the gaskets, seals and locking tabs, get the S15/T28 compressor outlet snorkel or a spin plate, bolt all the shits together before you put it in (except front pipe of course), do everything up to specs (tight) fold locking tabs over etc, do skids.
  4. Swapping starter motor. Some tips?

    I did it twice (because the first one from the wrecker was dodgy) from the top and didn't remove anything else, it was a bit gay.
  5. I don't know if this has been covered but in the classsifieds when you choose a location and then click next page it shows items from all locations.
  6. things that annoy you

    They're not hard to find they're hard to get. What, have you been looking for positions as a veterinary nurse? Keeping on topic - people that take up 2 parking spaces in already limited parking eg. at work. It's like f**k man have a look, half of the positions are reserved for less than a third of the people and you have just positioned your car like you want to be punched in the throat.
  7. things that annoy you

    Yeah It's farked she did a bar course to have a job while she studies more and no-one will hire her because she has no experience lol. Reminds me of trying to get a job to fill the gap at places like supercheap or autobarn and they tell you no, then hire some other f**kwit who's experience in automotive is a fast and the furious marathon.
  8. things that annoy you

    My missus is struggling to get work and *milkshakes* like him get the job then quit. That annoys me.
  9. things that annoy you

    Somewhere near Seymour in VIC lol.
  10. things that annoy you

    When some bitch buys something off me on ebay, takes ages to pay then opens a paypal dispute and then a claim for money back in the same day without contacting me because it doesn't arrive in her bumf**k country town within a week when it was sent christmas eve. To top it off she doesnt reply to any emails/messages and claims she never saw the tracking # when I sent it 4 times and it's on a link with the item lol. Meanwhile still no cash. Also when someone tries to lowball me for my already cheap parts then gets the shits and calls me racist because I sell it to someone else who wasn't dickin me around. /rant haha.
  11. Just recieived my 3rd order from gktech always quality parts and quick delivery! Cheers.
  12. just used hole saws and then used the dimple dies after in a press... my old work used to have dies that punched the holes into them at the same time... makes life easy. Sweet cheers man.
  13. Just thought I'd put this up for anyone thinking of going to Japan soon. Jetstar Japan sale Cheers.
