Hey guys. Just got my first skyline.

I plan on putting a lot of time and money in to it of course. Some people find it interesting to watch others progress on there cars. That's what gave me motivation to get my own. I'm also doing certificate of automotive engineering at Unitec, so everything I learn there I can put into practice on this unit.

A little bit about the car-

1992 Nissan Skyline GT r32 rb25de

I took some photos of the original condition I bought it in last w/e. Today was the first day I actually did anything to it. I took off the hideous roof rack mounts. I've only got tape over them atm but when I look at repainting the car the factory color, I will weld them.

This is what I got done today. These bastards were riveted on so had to drill the heads then push em through so they're sitting in the roof lining atm.

Engine is running good atm so will be focusing on the interior and body. Bit underpowered at the moment but I reckon it's because the oil filter is ancient, oil hasn't been changed since forever and same with sparks. So I've got all that ready to be done.

Engine bay pic.  Has all rusty water on rad.  So probably little or no anti freeze.  Also look into is the rusty water just there because someone opened the cap and it overflowed or other issues, leaking cap, top tank etc.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on April 05, 2012, 08:18:44 PM
Yeah. I'd say overheated. Cap looks very old so will def need replacing. Might flush rad tomorrow too. Probably no anti freeze by my guess.

When I said love and care I didn't mean performance mods, I meant cleaning and tidying up, as the gentleman above pointed out its coated in rusty water and is in general grubby and prolly needs a fluid flush, also the amplifier power feed running is atrocious

But of course :p

Also was inspecting drivers window regulator today. Have already got one coming from Harley. Does the reg come out through the top or do you move it sideways out one of the holes?
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Stalk3r on April 05, 2012, 08:25:15 PM
The reg is just behind the door skin, no special tricks, I also have spares if required and can rebuild them

Ha, lucky you told me this. I planned on trying to get it out by unbolting it then trying to get it out through one of the holes. Had to do that for a ****ty Honda I had.

Edit: Okay wait, I think I confused myself. Were you guys talking about the door card? Cause of course that had to come off.

An entire window regulator out with the skin on and out a hole... interesting
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Stalk3r on April 05, 2012, 08:41:29 PM
Hahha, yes without a doubt, how were you inspecting it without taking the door skin off?

Forgive my possible vagueness but I'm in a car on cellphone internet without an r32 in front of meso ill try step u thru it.

Open the door, pull the internal handle as if you're trying to open the door, prise the backing plate out from behind the handle (its clipped to the skin) after that take the little cellphone holder/handle bit out (there's a screw in the bottom of it) then lift the front of the window switch assembly, it should pop out front first, when out of the skin unplug it and put to the side, then there's 3 or 4 screws along the bottom of the skin from memory take the out then grab the bottom back corner or the skin and squeeze you hand between it and the door, doing that alone should pop a few of the clips the proceed up and pop the remaining one o 2 the go back to the bottom and move towards the front of the door to pop the rest, there's a screw at the top front that needs to be removed also, covoered by a plastic dome once all that's done pull the skin out a bit from the bottom and slide up should come off easily window up or down no matter bit easier with down tho

 Regulator is the little black box mounted to the door towards the bacl with 6 (from memory, could be 8) wires and a white and yellow plug

All of this is from memory so could be off a little but I don't think so
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on April 05, 2012, 08:45:56 PM
Hahahaha, Yeah that's easy. And relatively correct. But the window reg sits like behind the inside of the the door frame. That's what I'm talking about. I'll take a picture to help ease the confusion.

Bare with me a couple min.

At this point now. It's right behind that centre part where handle type part is. You can see the piece of wood holding the window up. So how do I get it out from there?

Post by: Stalk3r on April 05, 2012, 09:05:21 PM
Lolmax, derp etc :)

What you're talking about is not the regulator, you're talking about the motor and its mechanism, the regulator is the little black box exactly where I said it would be

And yes you take the motor out one of the holes
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on April 05, 2012, 09:11:28 PM
Ahhh crap. I'm so used to calling the whole thing a regulator. So I bought the wrong part. Anyone got a spare drivers window motor they wanna sell?

I'm not too familiar with window electrics. I'll probably still just replace the whole motor but if you want to explain to change my mind, feel free.

Probably eaiser to buy a new second hand one than to do the brushes if it is the brushes that are at fault.

It's the wire cords. They've been chewed up and pulled out of wherever they're meant to be. Yeah, stuff it. I'll buy a new window motor.

Dry ice from BOC gas, then when you are done you can blow some coke bottles up, If its a road car with a little track time I would just leave it there with the carpet.

Post by: Ryeoon on April 06, 2012, 10:50:52 PM
Yeah, I got rid of all the matting anyway (15kg of it later) so I'll leave it at that. Put everything back in and cleaned it up nicely. Almost got roped in to taking the whole dash out just so I could get that whole carpet up but stopped when I got to removing dash cluster. Got the A/C working which was a bonus too. Won't get anything done tomorrow cause I'll be off to Hampton Downs for the drifting.

Post by: Ryeoon on April 09, 2012, 10:54:04 AM
New spark plugs put in. I went with Bosch platinum plugs, seemed almost too cheap at supercheap (43$) for a set of six. The old ones I took out were NGK iridiums so I considered just cleaning them up as I hear they are quite good but decided to replace anyway as a few were quite cooked. What a difference it made! Much better response. Also learnt that my engine has a wasted spark set up.

Unfortunately I spilled a bit of battery acid on my back seat as a bat flipped over without me noticing. So I pulled the back seat out and spent a lot of time absorbing it up with an old towel and then watering it down with a hose. I heard you use Baking soda so I chucked that on too (With out inhaling the fizzy vapor) and it seems to have cleaned up without any holes.

Will be doing a radiator flush and general engine clean up today.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on April 11, 2012, 11:41:02 AM
Arrrrghhh. Struck my first problem. Started cleaning up engine bay today. Started out by draining the radiator which was straight brown. Flushed the hose through it til it turned clear. Cleaned out reservoir which was also brown sludge and then once I had washed the brown crap out of everything I filled up the rad with water, just to take it for a quick drive to get it all through. It started up fine and took off as normal. After a few roads of driving the power started dying off a little. The gears were being a bit funny so I pulled over and checked under the car, nothing was leaking. The car was almost stalling just while idleing. Hopped back in and turned around. Car had minimal power, had to floor it in every gear just to get a bit of a rev. Luckily made it home in 2nd gear. Jumped out, looked under bonnet, top hose and bottom hose both hot. After a bit of abnormal idleing it stalled. Will let it cool down and then I'll re-check all the rad stuff. Anything I'm missing?


Edit: Once it cooled down, the water was back to brown gunk, so I flushed it yet again. Took it up and back the road and seemed okay again.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: 30ed32 on April 11, 2012, 12:24:39 PM
good idea to flush the rad both ways and the whole system with the car running and heater on.

Thanks. Here's the new vertex body kit I scored for $300. Needs a little modification but still cheap. You can see a crack in the front bumper. Won't put on car until next week though. Still after a engine mount and tie rod. Also didn't bother trying to change window motor yet.

So good to have driver window working! Means I can go back through maccas drive through =)

Bought a radiator flush and spent ages flushing radiator. Stupid how long it took the hose running through the engine for the water to stop coming out brown. Filled back up with coolant now. Next up is oil change which I bought a engine flush and two 4L bottles of magnatec for. Also will put on the new Nismo oil filter at same time.

It would pay to remove the heater hoses and flush out the heater core too (just with a hose this time).... the radiator flush wouldn't have made it that far up the cooling system :)

I flushed it multiple times with car running, heater going and taking it for short bursts up and down road to make sure it got all the way through. I've already got all the new coolant in now so will do that next time I flush rad which wont be too far off.

Post by: BADHAB|T on April 15, 2012, 08:55:44 PM
Great minds think alike... you've already done that! Well, what you did was just as good as using a hose in the heater core.

...or is that simple minds think alike.
I'm not sure which I am lol
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: GTS4R on April 15, 2012, 09:33:35 PM
You can also take the radiator into a shop and get them to take the top tank off and rod the core out that way you know its 100% perfect.

Hahahaha, Here's the oil and filter after oil flush and change. From Black gunk to magnatec 10w40. Crap bulky filter to nice compact Nismo filter. Old stock sump plug to Blue magnetic sump plug. My car loves me for it. Feels so, so much smoother. I used STP engine flush.

Off to CT Auto and Scarles on monday to go look at some nice things to spruce up the engine bay. Need to get a catch can so I can change all the plastic air filter stuff to steel and silicone. Also bought 6 of those motortech engine degreasers for $20 from supercheap. Not too bad.

Some new gear. D1 spec catch can so I can change the plastic air filter box with steel pipes. New rear outer tie rods from Redline. They were mainly needed for WOF. I also got a D1 spec rad cap and will be getting an oil cap as well. I have been checking out engine mounts and the cheapest I can find is $95 at ACE parts in otahuhu.

Nope, but they were front tie rod ends. So had to get a refund and didn't manage to get a Wof for the meet. Did put the exhaust on however and sounds good. Also fitted a new air filter pipe and catch can but engine kept stalling so put factory back in.

And yes Kuikui, I waved to you. Your car is too flash to be driving around that place, haha.

Thanks. It will look even better in 2 months time with the new Vertex kit on and the whole car repainted. You can't see in this photo but there is sun damage. I will be repainting the car the same, awesome color of course.

My dad is a panel beater/ car painter and every car I've owned we always end up repainting cause it only cost me about $400 to get the whole car mint!

I might post up a pic soon of the car we painted last week. Our 1968 Pontiac Laurentian.

Does your dad do deals for SDU members? ;)

My car will need a respray and some minor panel work in the foreseeable future (possibly within 12 months) and retail pricing makes it almost not worth it, which would mean the car would probably get sold.. and I really don't want to sell it :(

I was stressing over the Wof today cause I just put the new exhaust on and I thought there would be no way that the exhaust would be under 95DB, but now people are telling me it should easily be under with the silencer. Feel a bit relieved. Then the car can stop looking at me with it's puppy dog eyes, haha.

He could do, depends on what hes got going at the time cause people are always getting him to do work. He doesn't work for a panel & paint company, he stopped like 20 years ago and works at the steel mill. But he never really stopped cause hes been working out of his garages ever since because hes so cheap :jack:

And I definitely understand where you're coming from. Retail can be like $10,000 for a great paint job. Costs me $400, haha.

Stock BOV (diamond logo on side), CAS are made by Mitsubishi. On R34 they switched to Hitachi CAS. The Mitsubishi CAS is better.

Also I asked about the difference between cheap paint jobs and expensive paint jobs and from what I understand it's taking car back to metal (stripping all paint off), preparation of surface for glass like type of finish, removing windows, etc, painting, refitting windows with new window seals from Nissan (not cheap), etc.

A visual inspection of the cam belt won't tell you if it needs replacing or not... so don't assume it's ok just by looking at it :)
If you're not sure when it was done last, it's best to change it... the RB is an interference engine after all

Yeap. My dad goes as far as stripping it back and the prep is just wet rub and a even coat of primer all over. Panels have to be 100% straight of course. The glass like type finish is all in the clear coats and cutting it back again and getting it to a perfect shiny finish. Doesn't refit new seals though unless needed.

Post by: gtsr on May 19, 2012, 10:59:00 PM
Thanks. :)

What I mean is on the 10K paint jobs (showcar) I noticed they remove windows, etc. On cheap paint jobs they mask around window trim and take back to paint coat and like you said they might paint a new primer coat, colour coat, clear car, cut n polish car.

But I noticed on a Nissan in reallife that was painted the cheap way, that there was paint build up between window trim, panel of car. Yet with showcar look you can't see any build up of paint around window trims. Maybe it was the way it was sprayed with cheap paint job around window trim or not masked properly???

So that's how you get rid of the orange peel look to clear when looking down panels??? Just that orange peel look didn't come off with a cut n polish on my car. I always thought it was nozzle on spraygun related and started with colour coats not being smooth.

Nah orange peel is caused by alot of diffrent things man. Specially with black jobs.

is normallt due to incorrect painting temp as the thinners evoperates too quickly or too slowely.

can be just down to painters technique.

quilty of paint

overspray

etc

You can wet sand it out but its a long process

Exactly. Especially black. It is by far the hardest color to put on a car. Our Pontiac we just painted is the first time I've put black on a car. Luckily my dad has done it all before. It required an extreme amount of prep because the black shows up any little ripple or mark instantly. Once the car was completely straight with a base coat of black (this took months due to all the hard to reach places, door jams etc) We put on 5 coats of 2k black lacquer and 8 coats of clear coat, just to get it that extremely nice glass like type finish. Of course this is process put in the most simple way possible. I'll upload pics asap.

Black is a nice color on cars however make sure you're up to putting in double the time and effort otherwise it will always look like a cheap paint job.

When I put the body kit on and fix up all the little odd jobs to the panels on my skyline, I'm just going to repaint the factory gun metal grey. I love that color. =P

When I bought the car about 2 months back, she said it had a new water pump. So good spotting. I plan on changing the belt in a few weeks. I was going to get one of those HKS ones but I heard you need to change to the Hitachi CAS??

Can anyone confirm this?

Haven't been posting much as of late because I'm only just getting the time and money to spend on the car again. Started fitting my Vertex kit. Holy **** it's not as easy as it sounds. Either the mold was bad or they usually take a day to cut them back to get a clean fit. I've just got the sideskirts to put on now and then start prepping for a paint.

I got a new alloy radiator for $200 and got some silicone rad hoses but I need a bung to fit in a turbo water feed hole before I can fit. Have got a new OEM thermostat to replace old one when I do radiator too because I have a feeling the current one is stuck open because it takes way longer than I think i should to start getting the temperature up. I also got a bigger battery and changed the terminal set up.  Taking off carbon cannister soon too.

And don't get me wrong, im not complaining about any of the products, a bit of modification for kits that cheap is expected.
Was just saying that some parts require more 'persuasion' than others to fit just right haha.

This is gonna be interesting. Put side skirts on last week (HOLY HELL). Looks ugly at the moment cause all out of shape and had to be cut back severly. Been wondering why front bumper doesn't match up with skirts and have found that I was given a Uras style front bumper! So now I'm gonna try fix this and line up with more butchering but afterwards, if it looks good, will be an original looking kit. I do like the Uras style front better than vertex however but will be difficult to shape right.

Will put progress pics up soon.

Ignore the tape. It's just holding it in place while the glue and sealer sets as the mold was a bit out of shape and didn't sit right so sticking it all down in to place. As I said it's all rough as at the mo.

About $160 landed IIRC, Driftworks bushes are orange (nolathane are red). That was enough to do my whole subframe (all bushes on the hub, rear LCA bushes) with two spare pairs (backups in case I didn't run the adjustable arms), and the front LCAs.

About $160 landed IIRC, Driftworks bushes are orange (nolathane are red). That was enough to do my whole subframe (all bushes on the hub, rear LCA bushes) with two spare pairs (backups in case I didn't run the adjustable arms), and the front LCAs.



Dam, that's good! When you say whole subframe, that's front and rear subframes? And is there any I can use to replace the rear tie rod bushings aswell? Sorry to keep questioning you but it's the best way to learn.

If you are non-hicas then I think the toe arms use the orange bush shown above. I switched to a non-hicas suframe and got toe arms, then pressed the balljoint out of the hub (there's a bunch of pics in my build thread).

Front subframe I didn't do yet, only got bushes for the LCAs and an alloy steering bush. Replacing castor and upper arms with adjustable items. Still need steering rack bushes.

Decided that shaping the front bumper to match skirts was going to take to much effort so just got some Uras Skirts. Looks way better. Don't like the Uras back though so gonna see what I can do with mine. Also put some spacers on back wheels. And only a boost tap and intercooler to get before my 25det neo turbo conversion will start happening. Things are starting to happen again =P

Just started holidays so gonna get prepping for the respray! No one would happen to have any spare factory gun metal grey paint they wanna sell do they?

So the plan now is to get the new 3" downpipe bolted on at the dump pipe and welded on to the rest of the exhaust monday. Bought a "Intercooler kit" From DSRTurbo and they only send me some pipes? WTF and they even look like SMIC ones. Not very impressed so following up on that sh*t. Getting new steel exhaust mani gasket so it can go on permanently and then carry on from there. Still got heaps to do! Will upload more when I progress.

I want to run the BOV right next to the throttle body but I can't with the piping set up at the moment. There was no BOV port on the factory J pipe I got. Will fix this when I get it running. And it's a factory dump pipe with 3" all the way off that.

Also quick question - The powersteering pipe that you can see in second picture in fornt of the radiator, does that need to come all the way out there for cooling or something or can I just connect the two pipes so they don't have that section?

Monitoring A/F ratio (engine running lean) would be via wideband o2 sensor (0-5V) in exhaust. Stock o2 sensor is a narrowband (0-1V).

You can buy a wideband kit here -

http://www.redlineperformance.co.nz/index-action=products&type1=Tuning%20Equipment&type2=Innovate.html

Edit: But I get what you mean, you want to make sure fuel pressure doesn't drop (fuel pressure gauge on FPR???) and make engine run lean.

Quote from: ryeoon
I'm running the factory injectors with a walbro 550 now so just playing it safe and keeping things at safe levels until properly tuned now.

If hardwire fuel pump (directly from battery) to get the 13.5-14 volts fuel pump needs (stock is 10-12 volts), the fuel pressure should rise (due to stock FPR having a small orifice hence stopping fuel returning to fueltank and the result is fuel backs up and fuel rail pressure rises and more fuel exist's via injectors) to low 40's (factory fuel pressure is around 35.5psi at idle) and A/F ratio should go into 10's at mid to high rpm (where injectors are open more).

You then retune ECU to correct the running rich problem (close injectors) at mid to high rpm, etc, retune ignition, etc. You never drop fuel pressure via FPR.

Also BOV having a diaphram (affected by heat) it probably will not function properly near turbo (air from turbo is very hot until is cooled down by intercooler) and as said above, can be louder due to higher pressure in that area. Also removing that pressure at that point would mean turbo has to build all that pressure up again (affects transient response). BOV should be on the cold side (inbetween intercooler, throttlebody).

Post by: Ryeoon on November 13, 2012, 03:29:45 PM
Alright, I hadn't planned on dropping fuel pressure from regulator, only slightly increasing if needed. I take it a wideband o2 sensor is a worthy upgrade then? Have never worked with o2s before so only basically know what it is does. Don't know the difference between wideband and narrowband however.

So what will I need to change with my fuel pump set up when I put the Walbro in? I can't do any tuning just yet until I get my link g4.

From what I understand, factory FPR is 1psi of fuel rail pressure = 1psi of boost pressure, exactly what was mentioned above, 1:1.

Adjustable FPR can make it 2psi rail pressure to 1psi of boost pressure (makes engine run rich) or 2:1 (what ratio FPR allows you to do, should be mentioned by manufacturer of FPR).

Fuel pressure is usually increased when boost pressure is increased (let a tuner adjust it properly for your engine when on a dyno, as can monitor A/F ratio, etc).

Best way to understand how fuel pump, FPR work is to turn on a garden hose and put finger over end of hose (simulating the small orifice inside stock FPR or adjustable FPR) and tap is the fuel pump, which you turn tap on more to simulate higher lph (more voltage to fuel pump, 13.5-14 volts) or less to simulate lower lph (lower voltage to fuel pump, 10-12 volts). This is to get higher or lower pressure to remove dirt on something.

It's worth it if need to monitor A/F ratio (to make A/F ratio safe).

You don't upgrade stock narrowband o2 sensor (that ECU uses) to wideband o2 sensor (unless it's a Link ECU, ViPEC ECU, etc that can run a wideband o2 sensor). You put wideband o2 sensor further down exhaust, close to where cat is or was via weld on bung (drill hole, weld bung onto side of exhaust). Actual distance down exhaust that the wideband o2 sensor needs to be is mentioned in documentation you get with wideband o2 sensor. Then connect a optional digital A/F ratio gauge or connect to laptop that has wideband software, which you should get with wideband that allows you to plot rpm vs A/F ratio (what you see on a dynochart). Edit: Also that's with ECU tuning software which allows you to see rpm, A/F ratio.

Narrow band is 0-1V and is used when engine is off boost, lower rpm's. At higher rpm, on boost, narrowband input is ignored by stock ECU. The 0-1V means it's a narrowband.

Wideband is 0-5V and is used at when engine is off boost, on boost and at higher, lower rpm. That's why it's used when tuning ECU's. The 0-5V means it's a wideband.

Fuelpump hardwire kit -

http://www.deatschwerks.com/products/accessories/fuel-pump-hardwire-installation-kit-detail

Adjustable FPR (if stock FPR is faulty and it can be after 20 years or so) and adjust to stock FPR fuel pressure specs or slightly above. Nismo adjustable FPR would be easier to fit, but can fit a Tomei FPR (rebuildable?), which needs more parts.

On RB20DET at idle (stock RB26 should be the same) it should be around 35.5psi and when FPR vacuum hose is removed from intake plenum (block nipple on intake plenum) fuel pressure should rise 7.1psi. It actually rises 7.1psi when turn ignition to 3?, before turning engine on.

Fuel pressure gauge kit (to monitor fuel pressure). Tuner should have this, so saves you buying one.

When I mean slightly above stock fuel pressure, I mean it might be into low 40's at idle (run too rich at mid to high rpm, but be safe). Around 35.5psi at idle might be too low. It's best to adjust FPR on dyno with wideband, etc (with help from tuner). Factory runs into 10's at higher rpm.

CRUNCH TIME!!

Started her up today for the first time in about 3 weeks! Started first pop but was very smokey with it's new mods. Bit of blackness out the exhaust and the manifold started smoking a bit but other than that, seemed to run okay on the 25DE ecu. Found an air leak so turned it off and fixed it up.

Then swapped the ECU over to the 20DET chipped for 25+t and started it up again. Bit rough on the first pop but still starts on 1st-2nd crank. No more smoke out the exhaust and ran surprisingly smoothly. Manifold still proceded to give off a bit of smoke but take it that it's just bedding in/header paint settling on. Gave it a few light revs which were okay and then just let it heat up to OT. Quite a exciting result after putting a fair bit of time, effort & not to mention money! in to it.

Still yet to change fuel pump over and set up boost. Only have boost tap at 1 turn open. I've been recommended to drive it a bit so boost can settle in before I measure it? Have now got a D1 Boost gauge that I want to install but I'm not the greatest with electrical and it's a fully electrical one. Anyone in Auckland ways want to help me install it for a box of chosen beverages? Haha

I'm also yet to retard the timing by 4 degrees.

Post by: b00stinz on November 15, 2012, 10:30:16 PM
Yeah the smoke coming off manifold and turbo area will be there for a few km as it's all the oils from your hands and what not just burning off. I had the same thing and was freaking out!
Glad to hear it worked out man, take care of it for now and baby it for a few 100ks as any issues may come out as things settle. Hopefully it ends better than mine did :)
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on November 15, 2012, 10:37:05 PM
What happened to yours?! What else did you do when you did your conversion that I've left out?
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: b00stinz on November 15, 2012, 10:49:33 PM
Ah just a couple of issues. First one was from the moment the conversion was complete and I had my first drive, the coils all gave out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5C4r2UDPxY&feature=g-upl
They were probably weak already and the extra air from forced induction really blew out the weak spark. Solved that one with an easy DIY.

Secondly, the wastegate actuator was f*cked and it was boosting 14 pounds! Thankfully I had another actuator which I checked and confirmed because I thought it was my boost gauge playing up at first. Off an R33 so boost came down to like 7 pounds, which was safe as it was just a chip for 25DE+T running 11psi.

Due to my inexperience I didn't know you had to get the system up to operating temp, then let it cool down and take the turbo off, tighten all manifold nuts again, put turbo back on and tighten all nuts again. This resulted in a couple of loose manifold nuts which were a pain to tighten and caused small leaks around the gasket. Then also I had to take the turbo off to replace the T3 gasket, it was easy though as it didn't have to come off completely.

Finally, found that the banjo bolt for oil was drilled too large and the turbos kept blowing oil seals. Only found out just after I sold it :( It smoked like crazy during driving.

Other than that, when the majority was sorted, apart from the smoking, it was amazing. Just that feeling of your non turbo car in a completely changed form, you actually appreciate what a turbo can do to a motor.

Post by: Ryeoon on November 15, 2012, 11:00:20 PM
I have a feeling my coil packs will do the same tbh. 20 y/o coil packs are always gonna be not very good. Yellow jackets are also added to the list of things to get at some point soon. I've already got a braided water feed and I wanted a braided oil feed but he didn't have any restricting fittings so I'll get on to that soon too. NZKW is quite reasonable for custom braided hoses.

I'll upload a vid of mine running soon. Also did you retard timing by 4 degrees or more or less? A few people have said different.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: b00stinz on November 15, 2012, 11:29:05 PM
That's a good idea. Will you not be going for any sort of fine tuning though? I didn't think it was important either but after seeing how much it helps, I think it's a good idea. Even a road tune would be better than nothing.

Yeah get some restrictors to suit the factory turbo, otherwise it may end up the same as mine. I remember a member on here said the flow was many times multiplied just because the hole was 1mm larger!

I didn't retard the timing at all, I wasn't told to by Andy to do that. I didn't hear any detonation however, but I do know it happens well before you hear it, so who knows. Retarding it sounds like a band-aid fix though. Plus that's power you're losing that you could have kept from a tune of some sort.

Post by: Shrike on November 16, 2012, 08:36:37 AM
do the old liquid electrical/insulation tape around the coils and regap your plugs to .8mm and you should be fine for awhile I would also go a heat range colder so 7 as plus T's will run slightly hotter, Run coppers to start with and just after 1000km or so check and see the condition of the plug it will tell you if the engines running rich etc or if the plugs are to hot or to cold

leave the timing alone just dont run more then 10psi then neo turbos dont like to run to much boost anyway and 10psi plenty esp with a plus t as you have good off boost response

Have you done a cold comp test to see how healthy your motor is?

Also I would run as little boost as possible on your rb25de injectors are 260cc and the 25det are 370cc

http://webbersrbguide.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=64:skline-rb-standard-injectors&catid=45:wiring-electrical-a-ecu&Itemid=23

you could pump up the fuel pressure a little if its running lean via the AFPR but you really need a wideband 02 sensor to check what its running at wot on boost

between 10-11:1AFR should be fine unless there is Det but the ecu should see this as knock and pull timing so if you get a flat spot etc then you may have fuel issues hope you have changed your fuel filter/pump
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on November 16, 2012, 02:40:48 PM
New fuel pump going in shortly and installed new fuel filter recently. Have not done any comp testing. Will upgrade to the yellow 440c injectors soon. Will be slowly increasing boost as the turbo beds in more and more until I get to about 7psi which I will leave it at until I am getting full tune done.

Will install FPR next week and just keep an eye on the pressure. That will be left alone until tune aswell.

Will not retard timing as you guys think it's not necessary. Will see how we go when I start moving it anyway. Will get a video today.

Post by: b00stinz on November 16, 2012, 03:44:26 PM
What I did with the coil packs was my dad had this electrical insulation spray. When it dries up, it's like a very hard enamel-like coating. I sprayed all my coils with that, gave them like 2 coats. Then wrapped the coils in electrical tape and put them in. It worked a charm.

It's not that I don't think it's necessary to retard the timing. I just have no clue. No one said to do it or not so I never messed with it.

CAS should be at position that works with ECU, transmission you are running. Ignition map on ECU is tuned based on that CAS position and is tuned to low or high compression engine, etc.

For RB20DET (lower compression engine than a +T) the CAS position can be 15 degrees BTDC for manual transmission or 20 degrees BTDC for auto transmission.

If it's a high compression engine with low octane gas you would retard ignition timing via ECU, not CAS. If don't do it, ECU will pull ignition timing, switch to knock maps (also known as low octane maps) due to detecting knock.

But best to talk to tuner who knows from experience (who has experience tuning +T engines).

So have got skyline getting exhaust finished up tomorrow. Took it for proper test drive today and took a small vid. Deleted the wrong clip of me actually driving and only kept a vid of me taking it just out the driveway and stopping as a cable tie tab was hitting the fan and making a lot of noise. :mad:

Oh well. Drove nicely for having only a front pipe on. Only stalled once while changing gear, haha. Also found a small air leak just after this video was taking. The thing that really tripped me out however was hearing the turbo spool up for the first time! And hearing it spool up from straight out the front pipe sounds awesome. Nothing ovr 3.5k rev though at this stage of course.

P/o'd that I deleted the wrong one and this isn't much of a vid but meh.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0dBrQgLsYE&feature=youtu.be

Now I just need to install my D1 spec boost gauge and see what its running. I followed the instructions on the boost tap and only opened it 1-2 turns so I really don't know until I hook the gauge up then will set to about 5 psi for now.

FPR makes a ticking noise, are you sure it's not that??? Or maybe a lifter is stuffed / needs to be cleaned (sometimes is oil thickness related)???

Bottomend bearing is noticeable and usually happens with oil starvation, very hot oil temps.

Also use a Nismo oilfilter.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on November 29, 2012, 11:05:40 PM
Def not FPR as it's coming from mid-rear of head area. Could be a lifter. Taking rocker covers off next week to change seals, paint covers etc so will clean then. But it has only started happening within the last 2 drives so my guess is oil starvation as its too thick.

Have a nismo filter on at the moment but putting a fram one on with oil change tomorrow.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: gtsr on November 29, 2012, 11:38:25 PM
My cars engine made a ticking sound from that area and was due to camcover gasket leaking on exhaust side and could hear lifters ticking away.

If need to clean lifters, you need to take cams out to remove lifters. But it could be as simple as too thick oil, try thinner oil first.

I would change washers under each mounting screw for camcovers, change camcover gaskets on intake camcover, exhaust camcover, half moons x2 on back of head. There's sealant that needs to be applied to halfmoons and back, front of head on both sides before installing camcovers.

Do you know the sequence (to not warp camcovers when removing, installing), torque for cam covers??? It should mentioned in engine manual.

I would fit another Nismo oilfilter.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on November 29, 2012, 11:41:08 PM
Yeah, my rocker cover has been leaking oil down exhaust side for awhile. Thats why I'm changing seals. I've got a kit from Cockram Nissan for half moons, seals, washers etc.

Haha mine has been doing the same since I got it. It's slowed down to a drop here and there every couple of nights so I'm not too fussed! Just cbf taking it all apart and doing it.

When you do the half moon seals, you need to put a bit of gasket sealant on them to help them seal by the way. Plenty of drama on SAU with leaks caused by guys not doing that.

If you can, avoid cutting stuff if you dont have to.

Find a factory airbox, modify the inlet, fit an Apex'i or similar good quality panel filter (steer clear of K&N) and youll already be doing far better than what you currently have.

Plus factory looks nice, might not be all bling and show and what not but i've really grown to love the look of a stock, clean engine bay, especially when the motor in it is making decent power :D

The air feed into the R32 airbox is asthmatic - that's a big problem. How do you modify them to improve that? (without opening them up to allow hot air in)

Cut into the inlet and run ducting to the front? Hardly rocket science if youre prepared to sit down and think about it, alternatively, a custom airbox (not alloy) housing a panel filter would be better but a factory one is easier to work with, As for K&N, i'd never put an oiled filter anywhere near an AFM, Simota are cheaper and flow better if youre after the cheaper option (proven) and for the same price, give or take, you could have a decent Japanese dry element filter.

Had a K&N pod on my old GTS25, wouldnt use one again.

Also, just HOW restrictive is the factory airbox and who has proven this?

Ah I thought that was the "argument" that was coming....
I've used a K&N filters on every Skyline I've owned (roughly 9-10 years of Skyline ownership) and I've never had a problem with the oil based filter... never! I've never even had to clean the AFM due to bad running from a build up of oil.
The key is oiling them correctly ;)



Quote from: AGRORB;610635

I remember seeing the piping up to the airbox - it's a maze, very small piping and no actual direct air feed from the outside (starts under the headlight), it's more passive where something like the R33 airbox is force fed.
No idea how restrictive exactly, but that would be one of the first things I'd change if I was modifying a stock R32 - much like the factory exhaust is a large restriction in the quest for power.

Crunchy has mentioned in the past a few times about it's the area of the filter facing incoming air that matters. Some podfilters (except the big, tall K&N podfilters) have a smaller filter area (restriction) vs panel filters hence why you get more hp with stock airbox vs podfilter.

Also the rising intake temps with podfilter means engine could knock (gets closer to where it would start knocking). Stock airbox shields incoming air, similar to a cold airbox that does a similar job.

Very good advice. :)

It's good enough for stock turbo at 14.5psi, 330hp. Above 330hp, 14.5psi (or lower boost with stock RB25DET turbo) I would look into replacing stock airbox.

The headlight area is in a high pressure zone on front of car with R32, so stock airbox is force feed when car is at speed. But might not be big enough (amount of air entering airbox snorkel) for a modified engine.

GTS-R had that snorkel to stock airbox -

I reckon, you get rid of the excess weight from the HICAS rack, tie rods etc, plus if you go to the extra effort of removing all the lines to the rear and replacing your pump with a non HICAS one you'll basically have a stock standard setup, looks nice and tidy and no issues come WOF time.

Leave HICAS ECU in place to control powersteering weight. Or replace with Non HICAS front powersteering rack, powersteering pump, etc.

When I weighed HICAS rack and arms together it totalled 7kg. I know 5kg is for HICAS rack itself, around 1kg for left arm and 1kg for right arm. The HICAS lockbar doesn't weigh much, easily under 1kg.

The reason behind going non hicas subframe, is are eliminating the inner and outer balljoints on HICAS rack.

From what I understand, the problem with stock outer balljoints is they are not lubed properly from factory (have to lube them via the nipples). It's one of the reasons why they fail. Then the inner balljoint fails and both need to be replaced.

Update- Putting in the hard hours. Have decided on going back to stock rear bumper but modifying it with extra where end caps would go. The vertex rear bumper was a really bad mold. Welded boot holes too so spoiler is gone.

Was taking apart my 5 stud brake calipers on Sunday night to put in the new Bendix pads I got from BNT while painting the calipers the same anodized purple as my Rocker covers & straight crushed my thumb with one of the hubs making it unusable for awhile. So gonna be sanding down my rear sub frame & repainting that black but I need I new bushings for it as they're in **** condition atm. Then finish off my 5 stud hubs & brakes then soon I should be fitting it all up!

Getting rid of the piece of shieet poolude & getting a 250cc bike instead aswell.

Still having back bumper mental disputes, haha. That's why no photos of the rear. My old man is making me some tin end caps that join on to back bumper to match the skirts as I'm not a fan of the Uras rear bumper because it has a oddly big rear lip on it. Only get to work on it in the weekends too as I'm at my welding/fabricating course all week.

Take the spacers out of your bonnet. If you go up the *** of somebody as speed there is a high likely hood that the bolts will shear and the bonnet will come straight through the windscreen and chop your head off. haha If you want a vent for cooling cut one along the rear edge but dont space it up.

Okay. At least these bushings can just be bashed out with a block & mallet. Not rusted in like the old ones.

I'm just wondering if there is anything I'm missing when it comes to the actual subframe conversion?
-- Basically going to drop the old subframe with diff, hubs etc. Then connect hicas pump lines together. Swap over all the old arms, swap diff over, put on 5 stud hubs with new thicker sway bar & get rear toe arms for it. Then put new subframe on.

Guaranteed easier said then done. =)

Nah, subframes are one of the easier jobs. Just make sure you have a mate handy, can be a bit of a **** lining it up by yourself when you put it back in.

You'll end up lowering your subframe with the bushes on top like that lol

If you're like me, and have friends that don't like getting their hands dirty or you have a carpeted floor use blocks of wood with little wheels on them, saves so much time ****ing around trying to get it in the right spot, especially is garage space is minimal.

I'll have help but that's still a good idea. I want to go with the aftermarket arms like you have but it's for a street car so bit worried when it comes to cert. Hard to find the right info. I've heard they have to be stress tested?

If I'm going to go aftermarket, I'll get this combo then get camber arms later once lowered.

Edit: Emailed John Brett asking about those arms & adjustable arms in general as I'll be doing the cert process with him eventually.

good on ya for talking to ya cert guy.

as i understand it rule as it now stands is that you cant have rose joints. the metal ball pivots at the ends of the arms. the only brands i know of that are able to be certed are hardrace, truhart, neotech and whiteline.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: 4ever_sideways on May 12, 2013, 05:04:11 PM
I think you'll find yourself having to get the hardrace ones (or similar). I've had those camber arms on for yonks. I've never been questioned at wof time about my arms considering they aren't certed. Guess they just saw the plate and assumed they were listed.
Title: Ryeoons R32

Does r33 arms fit r32? Questioned for these -http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/nissan/suspension/auction-591129277.htm

They're cheap and as said above are certifiable.

Also sent autolign an email for pricing on 30mm & 28mm nolathane sway bushes for my aftermarket sway bars.
Title: Ryeoons R32

those you put the link up for have bushes on the ends and should be ok, just rose joints are considered to rough for public roads

You may as well trace those hicas lines to the front and loop them there. Gets rid of that piping then.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: gtsr on May 19, 2013, 01:08:49 PM
That loss in internal size of hose (where it kinks) is going to cause a flow restriction thus rise in pressure. The next place it leaks probably will be at the resouvoir hoses, hoses next to / just behind battery.

You can cut the rubber hoses x2 that go from the block piece near rear wheels to the hardpiping which goes to HICAS rack and join the 2x rubber hoses together to loop it near rear wheels.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on May 19, 2013, 06:23:05 PM
Just a matter of being able to cut the pipe. I used a proper pipe cutter which was hard with the lines so close together. I imagine I'll just remove lines altogether when I get around to putting a non hicas pump on. I intend on having no kink in that hose.

Your thinking of an authority card from MSNZ it basically is for a road legal full on race cars. such things as roll cages past the front seats removal of air bags etc, you dont need a licence to obtain one just need to be part of a car club.

Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: DeadBroke on June 20, 2013, 08:14:57 PM
You can run 1.5 - 1 deg camber. I found -2 deg quite slippery lots of lifting off throtle to avoid spinning, couldn't really mash it. Remember the car squats when on throttle (-2 on the hoist could be -2.5 or even -3 on the track) and the wheels camber out. Some pros even run positive camber. You still need grip to get go forward when your sideways. If you unsure ask Joe Kukutai what he runs next time you see him at course.

Rear done to an extent, still need to bleed brakes and do wheel alignment when fronts on. Driving it out the garage was weird. Either wheel alignment right out or diff needs to bed in a lil. The rear wheels were kinda like skipping? Got the front hubs off anyway, just a matter of putting new hubs on with new sway bar and arms. One of my tyres on the 5 stud rims has a lil split in one of the sidewalls hough unfortunately and wont 't hold pressure. Back at Thursday to finish it for Solid Slide Sessions on Saturday. Can't wait.

370mm from centre of wheel to arch in front & 380mm in the rear. I've also been told to use a31 tie rod ends as they're longer and let the wheel turn round enough to hit caster arm in which case you weld a bolt to LCA as a lock stop.

I've made a bit of a deal with MRP. They don't do MRP coil overs anymore for R32 so I'm getting a set of these at trade price if I rep a sticker on my back window. They're ideal with spring rate of 14/10k and with a drift valving setup. 5 year warranty and easily rebuildable and revalveable so now comes the saving process.

On Fortune Coilovers website it says they do 12/8k

"The base rate is 12/8K, but for drift I would go alot harder. More like 14/10k rates. Fortune Auto would valve them to suit drift as well" is what he reckons so we'll see. I always though the stiffer the better for drifting?

I don't run a rear sway bar in my car and I run BC Gold 8/6k. The fronts are set to 15 and the rears set to 20 on the damper setting. My ride heights are around 300mm front and 290mm rear or around abouts. I quite like how my car responds.

It's probably a bit of personal preference too though.

Ask him if that's with a rollcage. I think anything above 6kg front, 4kg rear is too much for stock R32 chassis without a rollcage. Especially if chassis has high km on it (close to 200,000km), as a monocoque chassis tends to get weaker over time and twist's.

Adding chassis braces helps to restrengthen chassis -

Stiffer spring rates, damping adjusted to hardest setting via adjustment knob on top of shock to suit helps to make the car feel like it's skating on ice, so it's probably better for drifting.

370mm from centre of wheel to arch in front & 380mm in the rear.

I knew it looked higher, maybe the rear made it look that way.

Quote from: ryeoon;617307
So what I really wanna know is, is my ride height normal? 0.o

When I measured a stock R32 GTS-T Type-M, it was 370mm front, 360mm rear. So rear is 20mm too high on your car for some reason.

Ask Joe what he runs. I'm sure I read some where there is too stiff. You actually need traction to drift...

Weird because I'm guessing it's probably something to do with the subframe conversion in which I left out all the subframe spacers to get subframe as close as possible to chassis.

Joe said he runs 12/8k BC golds. I'll just have to do more research & ask someone who has had maybe 14/10k what it's like. I'll be getting caged out eventually.

Using different hubs (lower shock mount is higher or lower) might do it. Even using different length shocks might do it (as 4ever_sideways mentioned above), as some are longer or shorter under lower spring seat (supposedly you can turn R33 shock tophat around so bolt pattern matches, as the bolt pattern on strut tower is at a different angle on R32 vs R33 (vs R32 = \/ vs R33 = /\). Or rear springs are from another car.

Setting up requires experience and those that can build suspension usually know what works from experience (customers cars, testing themselves). Stocks, Autolign, Stech, etc.

I know those high spring rates make a Skyline chassis twist a little with rollcage (can feel it when cornering). Without rollcage it would twist alot, especially if it's older.

You can do a twist test. Jack car up on passenger side front jack point and open, close passenger door. If can't open, close door easily, chassis is twisting. If can't close door at all, then chassis is very weak (could be due to damage, age, manufacturing problem), twisting alot. Also make sure passenger door is aligned to open, close easily before doing this test. With rollcage it should open, close easily.

The raised subframe doesn't effect ride height. It all comes down to how long your struts are.

Post by: Elliot on July 09, 2013, 02:17:18 PM
Maybe get 12/8k spring rates then if thats what Joe runs. His car is track only right? Doesn't get driven on the road. I find that my 8/6k BC Golds are plenty stiff enough and you can make them a little bit stiffer by winding the damper setting all the way up. You can always buy a stiffer set of springs if you don't like the lower spring rates?

Gonna try something like -4 in the front and -2 in the rear but I want to put the car as low as possible. It's been high for far too long so need to catch up on some low, haha.

Top looks like IACV (Idle Air Control Valve) or known as the cold idle valve. It needs engine heat, voltage to work (valve inside slowly closes as engine warms up), hence why it's mounted close to engine. Valve inside can stick due to oil deposits from blowby, so clean IACV out (spray cleaner down where air enters and check valve with screw driver). When IACV fails engine can idle high when cold, warm.

Bottom looks like AACV (Auxiliary Air Control Valve) or hot idle valve and is used to kick rpm up when auxiliaries (aircon, light's, etc) are on and can kick rpm up when turn steering wheel. With aircon on, ECU adjust's AACV to make engine idle at around 1000rpm. When AACV fails engine can stall or fail to idle. Or engine can stumble if it's dirty (due to oil deposits from blowby), so clean it out.

You're welcome. :)

It's part of routine maintenance. Catch can plumbed on vacuum hose inbetween exhaust camcover, intake pipe infront of turbo can help to prevent oil getting into intercooler, idle valves, etc.

On early 80's Nissan's they had a manual knob (manual choke) on dash instead of IACV (automatic choke). Automatic choke made it so can drive car while engine warms up.

Also can put IACV on a hot plate and add voltage to it to check closing of valve. From what I can remember, it closes in roughly 9 minutes (check manual to confirm the amount of minutes).

wtf :confused:
It does NOT work off engine heat LOL... it's mounting location has zero to do with how it works.
The water temp sensor controls the cold start valve... cold coolant = wide open valve = higher revs. The warmer the coolant gets, the more the valve closes and the more the revs drop to "normal" idle.

I simply guessed it was one of his manifolds based on the picture of the one you linked and the comparison to mine and his he has listed on his TradeMe.

By the way with your choice of spring rates it might be notable that Zak Pole is moving from a 8KG rear spring to a 6KG rear spring for next season to get more grip in the rear.

Yeah top mount with a bigger turbo would be nice! Yeah that plate on the exhaust manifold is blocking the external wastegate port. It was for my WOF about a month ago but I haven't got around to putting the external back on because its loud and annoying. Haha. Will put it on for the drift day though.

Bloody mess! I need everyone to tell me there handy stuff to do while the plenum is off, such as delete unnecessary hoses. Considering blocking off heater hoses now as it's a track car. But yeah, info that will make engine tidier & easier for me!

Hey bro, just been reading a drift setup article and found your car didn't want to self steer (automatically counter steer) when you let go because the lack of castor. How much did it say you had on your alignment sheet?
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on July 29, 2013, 10:23:59 PM
Yeah I knew that was the case on the day. Just factory caster.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: DeadBroke on July 30, 2013, 12:22:48 PM
Yeah I  was wondering why you were saying the wheel just goes to the middle, cause I was doin it all day, I thought your power steering wasn't working for a second.  When you buy your adjustable castor arms try keep in mind, shorter is better then longer. I've got long ones that are wound all the way in and maximum castor is 7.
Title: Ryeoons R32

Looks like the drift days at Meremere have been cancelled as the track is not ready yet as the most recent post on Fram Autolite Dragway's Facebook page. Having moisture issues in the breaking area so more drainage is going down. Very nice to see them doing it properly and not rushing it!

Out with the heater hoses. Linking them directly at block ports. Is it possible to just block up the ports from the P/s pump? or am I going to have to just leave the hoses in place and shorten the pipes that are linked up just before the rear subframe.

I'm sure you can take all the Hicas crap out. All the lines that go to the rear and all the rear lines associated with the rear steering and then just open up the pump and take out the rear prop and blank off the port on the pump.

I wouldn't run 3" off turbo. keep it 2.5" its just more pipe to fill before stuff starts happening. smaller pipe = more air speed. more air speed = more responce and power. you'll see quite a few of the wrc cars running 2" pipe work for this very reason.

I ran 2.5" hotside and 3" cold side with my setup and my piping was longer so your shorter setup will have less lag

Also the 80mm throttle will need a 3.25" to 3" reducer off the top of my head :p

But at the end of the day it makes fark all difference

lets look at this mathmatically

volume of a 1m length of 3" pipe work = 456220cc
volume of a 1m length of 2.5" pipe work = 316819cc

diffrence = 139401cc

you can't tell me thats fark all diffrence. Thats like 139 extra L of air required to fill the diffrence in space.

might want to check you decimal points or mm - cm conversion. think its more like 456.22cc  to a 3inch. cause 456lt in a 1m length will not work.

your difference is more like 1.39 liters in volume.

There's 3 locking rings. Top 1 is adjusts the spring pre load, the one under that locks the pre load in place and the bottom 1 is the locking ring for your ride height. Hope that all makes sense man.

That's one way to do it. If the shocks all bolted up you can loosen the bottom Ring and turn the whole shock downwards by hooking the c spanner around the top ring. But chances of slipping and cutting your hand open are really high doing it that way.

I asked if he'd do me a mean deal on a 80mm throttle body as he is real good qaulity but the most expensive, and I'd rep a sticker. He said if I rep his stickering he will give me a sponser discount of %25 so pretty stoked. Going in to see him tomorrow. The %25 discount is mean because it makes his prices the same as some of the cheaper goods for me.

The mad dash is on before Saturday! How the f*$k is this right? No O ring and no rubber grommets in injector slots on plenum? That's how I took em out so I presume thats how they are. Can anyone confirm? Have some factory rb25det injectors but might wait until car actually runs before I try them with ECU.

Have to install battery relocation kit,
Fuel pressure regulator
Rewiring plugs
Replace split fuel line
Reset TPS & adjust butterfly to idle properly
Drill bonnet for pins

Just gave them a call. Said there should be a middle seal and bottom seal as well as the top seal which is the only one on mine. He didn't look up any information though so don't think he was much help. I just compared my 25DET ones to mine and the 25DET ones are considerably smaller so don't think they'll work.

lol nope... those are some nasty home made speaker pods right there!
If you want to stick with 6" speakers, use those as templates - MDF is best
If you want to go back to the standard 6x4 size, factory plastic speaker pods shouldn't be too hard to get hold of

if my memory serves me right, there is a rubber insulator in the recess of the plenum and that's it. of course an o-ring fits at the top of the injector.
i dont know about the middle seal you are talking about.

Shes been a long & painful day! Getting close though. Relocated battery, fixed fuel hose, Drilled holes for bonnet, temporarily rewired TPS plugs, almost installed pressure reg.

Ended the night on the pressure reg as it was pissing a bit of petchy but couldn't get pressure in the gauge. Not sure if it matters which way hoses go as the instructions are in asian. Just need to get that sorted and now time to research on resetting tps with throttle butterfly slightly cracked open.

Gayyyyyyy. Leaking plenum between block and plenum face right where the nick in face was. Had a bad feeling about that right from the get go when I recieved it back. Not looking like a great product from RB intakes at this stage! Gonna have to inform him and see what the outcome will be. If he wants nothing to do with it, I guess I'll just have to stick it on with bulk gasket goo & hope for the best.

The problem with doing manifolds is the time it takes to set them up to machine them. most places probably won't be interested. if you have access to a linisher just chuck it on that will come out square enough.

yep i would try going to small claims tribunal over it if hes not willing to fix or exchange it as it falls under consumer guarantees act

Consumer Guarantees Act 1993

Meaning of acceptable quality

    (1) For the purposes of section 6, goods are of acceptable quality if they are as

        (a) fit for all the purposes for which goods of the type in question are commonly supplied; and

        (b) acceptable in appearance and finish; and

        (c) free from minor defects; and

        (d) safe; and

        (e) durable,

    as a reasonable consumer fully acquainted with the state and condition of the goods, including any hidden defects, would regard as acceptable, having regard to

        (f) the nature of the goods:

        (g) the price (where relevant):

        (h) any statements made about the goods on any packaging or label on the goods:

        (i) any representation made about the goods by the supplier or the manufacturer:

        (j) all other relevant circumstances of the supply of the goods.

    (2) Where any defects in goods have been specifically drawn to the consumer's attention before he or she agreed to the supply, then notwithstanding that a reasonable consumer may not have regarded the goods as acceptable with those defects, the goods will not fail to comply with the guarantee as to acceptable quality by reason only of those defects.

    (3) Where goods are displayed for sale or hire, the defects that are to be treated as having been specifically drawn to the consumer's attention for the purposes of subsection (2) are those disclosed on a written notice displayed with the goods.

    (4) Goods will not fail to comply with the guarantee of acceptable quality if

        (a) the goods have been used in a manner, or to an extent which is inconsistent with the manner or extent of use that a reasonable consumer would expect to obtain from the goods; and

        (b) the goods would have complied with the guarantee of acceptable quality if they had not been used in that manner or to that extent.

    (5) A reference in subsections (2) and (3) to a defect means any failure of the goods to comply with the guarantee of acceptable quality.

I feel rude saying anything more than what I have though. I'm not good at getting angry at people. Here is the exact conversation from facebook so someone please give me something appropiate to say. Not asking for someone to sort it for me but I'm unsure of what my next step should be.

Ryan Sinclair
Hey dude, been having lots of trouble. Can't get it running below 2k revs with TB closed so I presumed vac leak. Smoke tested it tonight & it's leaking between block & plenum flange face. Did you notice anything wrong with that face upon return as I did notice a good nick out of it which looks like it had been touched by a grinder or something.

9/16, 12:02am
Ryan Sinclair
It was between the middle runners where the leak is.

I don't sure any cutting or grinding disks on it. I'm not sure man. Maybe ya got some old gasket or something stuck between them?

Here's a few photos. Something has definitely been skimmed across it. There's two areas you can see in the photo of the all ports which are pretty straight cut looking.
Tuesday

Did you put a gasket on it.

9/17, 12:14pm
Ryan Sinclair
Yeap, steel layered one but they're too deep to seal.
Today

1:47pm
RB Intakes
I'd suggest a light smear of silicon bro. Usually the rbs have a fiber gasket that can squash up and seal. Not lots of silicon just a light smear on the intake.

4:41pm
Ryan Sinclair
Nah that's too sketchy for a track car. I'm gonna have to get it machined. A lot of fabricators get it machined when they are finished incase HAZ has caused it to distort but even so, the nicks are dodgy as.

4:58pm
RB Intakes
Sorry man. It a first for me having that issue. I think the 25de are the only ones that run the steel gasket 20 and 25 are both paper gaskets. Lol track car silicone cable tires and duct tape gona be your best friends.

Ask him directly.. not fluff around it "Look it is defected and doesn't work i want it replaced or repaired what are you going to do about it" and going off his answer i would bring up the consumer guarantees act and if he still gives you **** small claims court should be enough to scare him into been decent and giving you what you paid for if that fails follow through with it and get a court date

Does it not need to sit flush? It fits on to stub and bolts on but is held up a few mm from a little lip on the underside of sensor. I just figured it would need to sit flush on TB to give accurate volts to the sensor?
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on September 29, 2013, 08:37:36 PM
This is what I mean. There was a lil underside lip the didn't clear mounting point of TB so I grinded it off. Still doesn't sit 100% flush but hopefully will be sweet.

just put a few washers under the tps mounting tabs. yes it will need to be bolted up flush or it may move and you will be putting extra stress on the moving parts in the tps.

Haha yeah my mate borrowed them before me to push around his rolling body and said the tyre kept going flat, neither him or I bothered to check the valve until I sold them to Ryan and he checks it to find no valve. I hope you get good use out of those rims! I haven't even had them on one of my cars since I had them for nearly 3 years :(

Haha, no **** they kept going flat. He was probly trying to put in air then put the dust cap on super fast. Let me know when I can grab the other two cause then that will fulfill my 16'' rim needs. Just need some 18's now so that when I get used tyres from tyre shops I've got a variety of sizes I can take, hahaha. Wanting some deep dish drift teks for the 18's so I can keep wide 18's on the front at all times.

Ahhhhhhh, it was bypassed. Had a plug just looping all the connectors together that I unplugged just before I took photo so that makes sense. Also WAS Hicas, now running non-hicas subframe so I can remove it? But never had ABS.

Post by: Looney_Head on October 22, 2013, 09:00:19 AM
the square one is the hicas box, and you can remove it but it will remove your speed sensitive steering. this means your steering will not be lighter at low speed/stationary it will still be power assisted. i have done this to mine and it didn't worry me.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: gtsr on October 22, 2013, 02:46:16 PM
Passenger side of underside of rear undertray is usually the ABS / 4wd ECU and drivers side is the HICAS ECU.

HICAS ECU when in limp mode provides the same assistance as it would at 180-200km/h (very little). That's why the steering goes heavy when there's a HICAS problem (ECU, etc).

There's a solenoid looking part on front steering rack (drivers side) that the HICAS ECU controls (this solenoid adjust's the amount of powersteering assistance). If you can find a way to adjust the signal to that solenoid to decrease the assistance as speed rises, then HICAS ECU is not needed.

Most leave the HICAS ECU there to allow it to adjust that solenoid looking part and earth any unnecessary inputs to HICAS ECU (makes ECU think they are still there).

Or can buy a Tomei HICAS eliminator kit from Japan that has the wiring done for you -

That would of been mint but I have already bought longer accelerator cable, new top radiator hose, gaskets etc :laugh:

I also got a new plenum to use the lower half for the next ffp but the idiot indian said yeah definitely r32 25DE over and over and when I recieved it, it looked nothing like my other one grrrr. I have the worst luck.

Got in touch with RIPS - ''The R32 type is the most involved and needs a custom water pipe and thermostat housing but I've done lots of them before. If you supply the lower 1/2 of the plenim base, the water pipes that bolt to it, a thermostat housing for me to modify and the TB flange I can do it for $1000 cash.''

So now the question is RIPS or Sinco? Both know what they're doing obviously & they're the same price relatively but I think RIPS is doing the better deal with the thermostat modification. Not sure what kind of gaurantees RIPS do on there work as of yet though.

I don't think they need to guarantee their work... the quality speaks for itself haha. Have you seen pics of my plenum? If you haven't, I can post a few up including the inside of it if you want
...and yep, they remade the metal water lines under the plenum and remade the thermostat housing on mine :)

Sinco has now gotten back to me also

''Hi Ryan,
We can do you a inlet manifold if you supply the tb flange and lower half for $900+gst this will come in a satin finish and will have the main face milled so it is straight.
If you need any more info please let me know.
Thanks mike''

So they're both roughly $1000. Just need to decide who to choose. I'm leaning more towards the RIPS deal. Hard to choose haha.

Sorry about the late night paint sketch up but this was kind of the design I was always thinking. Any potential flaws here that someone experienced may know of?
Top tube connects directly to original mounting points by tube/bar while bottom tube is attached by same size tube angled on the ends to the top bar & then 2 more bracers come up off the bottom tube back to the mounting tube/bar.

Monoque chassis is designed to crush to absorb the energy of a impact.

The bumper support is designed to collapse, be replaced, hence why it's designed to be quite weak (weaker than chassis) and bolts to chassis.

You would need the metal to be just as thick (equivalent to), strength wise as stock bumper support to collapse in the way it's meant to.

Title: Ryeoons R32

I assume copying a Jeep, which has a bumper bar. But Jeeps are a 2 piece chassis, so are much stronger when they hit something. I have seen the result's of 2 piece chassis that collapsed a monoque chassis quite easily in a crash at 50km/h. The 2 piece chassis showed no signs of damage.

Well my car is a drift only car & I do need the space for I/C with my set up so it should be appropriate? But I see what you mean about making it too strong. I think I thought that bent tube would kind of have a spring type effect but then I'd say that would also depend on the thickness.

Would it be better if I just went with the one tube bent around the front from the factory bolt on mounts? Does the same also go for the rear support as I seen Skumlines car when he reared into a wall & it looked like the rear bumper support did nothing at all. But if that's just how it's meant to be then so be it. Or can you tell me what is ideal for my situation? I have to make a project this week at the steel mill and that's what I wanna make.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on December 17, 2013, 04:18:39 PM
The straight plates to mounting plates you see on the end of the smaller bent tubes are coming off, they are there just to align everything up properly. With this design I logically think that having the bumper support attached by bent tubes will mean as the result of impact, the weak points are the bends which should further bend more instead of bending chassis as they're only 30x3mm thick tube.

I need a new water temp sensor. The one pictured is mine that broke in the mail. Also I'm quite sure my last plenum did not have that water line you can see & I have no idea what to do with it. Might just t-piece between my turbo water line & the similar fitting that comes off next to thermo housing.

That's looks like the nipple for the hose that goes to little box on front of intake plenum (where the air bleeder bolt goes for cooling system).

With front mount intake plenum, you would run that hose to a breather tank and place the breather tank higher than top of engine, top of radiator (it's where bubbles go to and get separated from coolant). A breather tank prevents bubbles (created by water pump) clogging cooling passages in radiator, engine, thus causing engine to overheat (common problem on racetrack with RB26, RB20, etc). Commonly seen on racecar engines, modified RB engines.

How a breather tank works, how it's plumbed -

http://www.trust-power.com/04cooling/breather_tank.html

Additional part (for bottom radiator hose) -

http://www.trust-power.com/03electric/radiator_hose_attachments.html

Problem is a breather tank is shipped with a higher pressure radiator cap, so might blow waterplugs, headgasket, waterpump, etc (they modify waterplugs, fit metal headgasket on racing engines). Usually higher pressure radiator caps are used with thicker radiators, as pressure can drop.

Thank you for your kind words, it's just common things most people would pickup over time. Always learning with cars (don't know everything).

You can see the little diameter hose in this photo going to the little box (with air bleeder bolt for cooling system) on front of stock intake plenum -

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_6PHvpaPcJsg/TCgOprHJQ4I/AAAAAAAAABw/1vutQWYyM7U/s1600/274010mgvm3.jpg

Would be best if you can see another GTS-T RB engine in real life with stock intake plenum and trace where the other two hoses go. Or ask Badhabit or Downtrail who have done this mod.

I know one hose goes to under stock throttlebody (I think plumbs onto bottom of throttlebody) and I think it's the hose that goes to a T piece / metal piping that goes around back of head. Other hose goes to cooling hoses under intake plenum. But I might be wrong, best to check a RB engine in real life to confirm or ask Badhabit or Downtrail how they have done it on their cars.

On this RB engine with front mounted intake plenum, they run that nipple with hose connected to it, to under intake plenum -

You will find that there is 3 hoses that come off that box. The one coming off under the hose to the rocker cover vent is the one that is plumbed through the TB. Another hose goes to that pipe I'm wondering about which has just made me remember that my stock plenum did have it but RB intakes must have blocked it off as I don't remember using it when setting up his. The 3rd water line goes to the pipe coming off thermostat housing under the heater hose pipe which is where I'm wanting to splice the water line.

By the way, that blue piping you can see coming through back of cam cover is my turbo water line. Learnt that the rear of the engine is where it gets most hottest so not running anything behind it.

That fact that coolant circulates through those hoses tells me that blocking them off wouldn't be a good idea (create a pressure build up, blow headgasket, etc). Looping that hose, so it recirculates back into cooling system at the correct point / place would be better.

I guess have to know which direction the coolant galleries flow to have an idea of where to recirculate it to, but going by the breather bottle diagram, it flows out of head into that hose and I assume to the box with bleeder bolt on front of intake plenum, then off to one of those 2x other hoses, so connecting it to one of those hoses off that box with bleeder bolt on front of intake plenum, so it recirculates the coolant, might be the best way (thermostat housing?? hose).

Also that box part is placed above top of radiator, top of block, so it's the high point of the cooling system (why the air bleeder bolt is there). With breather bottle, that becomes the new high point of the cooling system, hence why I was mentioning it (automatically removes bubbles from cooling system, so no need to remove bleeder bolt).

One problem I see is bubbles becoming a problem (no bolt to remove, so can't bleed the cooling system of air bubbles) and the high point of cooling system might be the top of engine.

Post by: Ryeoon on January 07, 2014, 08:38:09 PM
So then plumbing that pipe to the thermostat piping bit is right & theoretically I should just be able to lift that T piece above the engine to make it the highest point when I'm bleeding air from coolant system. Haha, you can tell I'm going for the cheap/easy option right now.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: gtsr on January 08, 2014, 05:27:05 AM
I was thinking about it more, isn't that nipple tapped into side of a coolant gallery that goes to top radiator hose???? If so it probably wouldn't cause a pressure build up and could be blocked off.

Was thinking along the lines of being similar to a stuck closed thermostat, where it causes a pressure build up and blows radiator hoses, radiator tanks, headgasket, etc.

Or buy a D1 spec breather tank + fitting for lower radiator hose (36mm?? ID hose). Might be able to get away with stock radiator cap or radiator cap used for radiator you have installed.

Would be best if had a accurate coolant temp gauge to double check that it doesn't overheat.

find r33 lower control arms, they longer and will give you the 5-6 deg your after, my skyline had 6deg neg camber up front but dropped it back because the front wheels was just sledging at full speed drifting. 2-3 deg and the right Tyre pressure should set ya right.

-Do something with that Water port off intake
-Attach bonnet catches
- Modify bumper to attach to tube support bar
 & then

-Reset TPS
-Set Fuel pressure Reg
-Adjust TB butterfly gap to compensate no IACV

& if all that goes to plan
-Take it for wheel alignment
-Drift the f%*k out of it

Taken skyline for hoon down road. Few new features since the last time I drove it. Steering is heavy as sh*t and I'm putting that down to taking out Hicas ECU & still running hicas pump & p/s rack. Still driftable though. Also braking was super bad. Guessing that having silicone hose as your hose to brake booster with the one way valve in it is just no good so gonna try factory brake hose again. Fuel pressure is set to 42psi without vacuum. Other than that, ran all good.

Still need to properly set TPS & also car sits at 2k revs now so must have a small leak coming from somewhere. Hopefully not manifold... ;)

Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on February 02, 2014, 10:49:57 AM
I just realised I'd definitely be wanting to upgrade my factory 7psi actuator to a 14 psi one first because I hit 7psi by 3500 revs and then it starts boost creeping hard. But I think I do need a tune. Where is a good place in Auckland that can just remap my 20det ecu I'm running on that has been chipped?
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: gtsr on February 02, 2014, 02:12:45 PM
Around 0 on boost gauge is at 2000rpm, but full boost of 7psi at 3500rpm. That's quite laggy for a 2.5 litre engine.

Boost creep can be due to wastegate port on back of turbo is too small. Would need to port it and fit a bigger diameter internal wastegate flap.

Tune wise, Torque Performance is the most experienced in Auckland with chipping stock R32 ECU. You won't get big hp gains, as they tend to tune conservatively for longevity of engine.

With RB25DET a conservative tune will be around +20hp gain at wheels and aggressive around +38hp. But that's with VVT (helps with spooling bigger turbo's), so not sure what you would get without VVT.

You can always run a large gate and if you find that boost drops off when gate opens due to over flowing you can machine up a restrictor to fit into the outlet side to control this thurther.

Thinking about the boost control issue, have you looked at where the internal wastegate actuator is plumbed to????

I think it's on intake piping after turbo for RB25DET. On RB20DET the turbo's compressor housing.

There is another, but he is supposedly hard to get hold of. Ask Westybob, as I think he had some ECU mods done by him.

If can fit Nistune, anyone that tunes PowerFC can tune Nistune. Few things you have to know, but a very similar process. Also can sell ECU off afterwards, as the tune can be modified to suit another engine.

When it was produced the RB25DET engine made 154.4kw at the engine, in brand new form, on 100RON Japanese fuel.

I hope you understand, factory Ecus are a much better choice then a Link G4.

Im not going to start on why Links are one of the worst Ecu options because I can already tell that ANY information I try and give you will just be flamed by everybody following this.

Any body who uses any tuning software can tune Nistune, if they have a current license to use the software AND are capable. How ever most people do not tune factory Ecus, because they dont make much margin off the tune time, theyd rather sell you a Link G4 which each unit holds a very large margin. Ill say no more.  

You do not require a Nistune board. You require a tune where someone will use an Emulator and tune your car on the fly. Emulators are essentially pretending to be the chip in your Ecu. Once the tuner is happy with the timing and fuel maps and any other functions of the Ecu, he will burn the exact same .Bin file (the tune) to a chip. That is the inserted into your Ecu with a removable socket and away you go.

They only advantage of a Nistune board is the fact you do not need to open the Ecu, tune with an emulator, Burn another chip and install chip/socket into the Ecu. Instead you simply tune Via the consult cable under the driver side dash, leaving the Ecu in place.

Often you will find most Tuners own a single Nistune board which is installed into an Ecu. That is then a dedicated tuning Ecu, makes his life easier without needing to tune Via the emulator every single time.

There are many different Nistune board types. You would require a type 2, if you decide to use it.

lol yeah so my commodore 64 computer from the early 90's is still a better computer to use then the laptop i am typing off at the moment? as time progresses so does technology. things generally get better not worse.

I agree with you factory computers are great to use BUT only to a point where after market becomes more economical to use Afm's work great but are restrictive in some makes of motor. A map sensor with barometric correction will work just as well and are none restrictive.

If you believe in re flashing factory computers with all your heart why dont you set up shop and do it if its really that great you will have plenty of customers knocking down your door wanting re flashes do it I dare you with the excellent results you claim you will knock link out of the market and be the computer king of NZ I don't know why anybody hasn't done this before.... But the sorry truth is that you wont be able to change the world in a few days and a competive market such as performance cars where nobody wants to pay for anything but still expect the world you may struggle and not get the huge market share you expect.

you said it your self and money talks. we all need it to live feed our familys pay out mortage, lease what ever business is tough and going the long way about things is not only got to cut your legs off and confine you to your place of work for the rest of your life just to make your weekly payments, meet payrole isn't going to cut it for any sane person.

and as Badhabbit said the internet is full of false information thats just the way it works. call a spade a spade and that's what you get.  call a spade an oven and make it believable to the week minded then you have successfully brain washed them. Take things with a pinch of salt and if you are so correct and determined to change things then do so nobody's stopping you but when you have no evidence to support a claim its only words in the end.

Wtf are you talking about. Do you know that a factory rb20De has a faster processor then a link G4 extreme? In fact, a gizmo dual stage electronic boost controller has a faster processor. And all it does is control boost! The only reason why everyone buys links is cause they get sucked into company's like shred and enh who make thousands of selling ancient ecus. Have you even seem the inside of a link Ecu ? It looks so simplistic and basic.

What ecu do you use? Link? Mega squirt? How does the MAP sensor measure MASS airflow? Oh it dosnt. So what happens at night when your "18" pound is flowing a lot
More air then tuned to because the air is much more dense..? Nothing. The Ecu knows nothing. Oh but it has an IAT sensor? Yay let's create an extra trim table and try do it ALL on a slower processor.

Guess what my Ecu does.. It shoots into the last row of timing. What do I have there? NO TIMING.

But, my opinion not yours.

I stress this, it all coems down to cost. Would you rather spend $3500 for a link ecu, install and tune? Or $500 for a factory chipped ECU that will work just aswell. You dont need anitlag, launch control, blah blah blah.

I respect that you seem to have good knowledge, not a google bot. So I think that you will understand that Ryan will be better off with a factory remap - Cost vs Customer expectations.

There is no way Ryan will be restricted with a Z32 MAF.

You have forgotten that air with a temperature of 21dec c flowing 250cfm and air with a temp of 5 deg c moving at the same velocity will also flow 250cfm an afm has a temp sensor in them for this purpose! just like map and iat sensors. This is all worked out with the speed density algormitim as you already know.

A map sensor that utilises barometric correction will account for any ambiant pressure no matter where you drive dunno if link uses this but megasquirt does and it works well.

Processor speed is not that important as you should know an ecu does not require a whole heap of computing power and they are more than enough why put in a faster processor than needed? and having a faster processor will not make your hardware any quicker thats the limit there. you can compute as fast as you like but if the hardware cannot keep up there is no point.

Like I said man the market decides whats best to use not an individual and if you think different by all means head out and take some of that market. If you are really that good you will put link out of business in no time.

I agree, not needed for the basic tasks any ECU does, but with extra features above the basics it does require a faster processor.

If vastly outside factory engine specs (front facing intake plenum, etc) a Link ECU, ViPEC ECU, Motec ECU, etc is best to get the most from the mods.

Look at the mods engine is going to have (list them), application (street, track, drift, etc). ECU matches those final engine specs, application. Also matches your budget.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on February 15, 2014, 12:31:39 AM
Application - Drifting on track only. No road use.

Mods-
Front facing plenum
2.5'' I/C piping straight through headlights with 80mm TB
Factory 270cc injectors . . . . for now
Yellow jacket coil packs
Walbro 550 fuel pump
45V4 Neo turbo with factory 7 psi actuator . . . . . for now
Internal wastegate on factory down exhaust manifold & down pipe . . . . for now
3'' exhaust with one muffler which I may remove the muffler

Can't think of anymore right now.

So I'm guessing factory ECU tune is suitable now but when I do all the ''for nows'' I'll probably need something a bit better.

98 pump gas???

Factory ECU can run with those mods, but I would play it safe with the fueling (run it richer to be safe). Some intake plenums (stock GTR would be one example) have uneven flow into some cylinders, so some run leaner (5th, 6th on GTR), some richer. It's due to the intake plenum design.

A trick some use when using the stock GTR intake plenum, is highest flowing injector into 6th, next highest flowing injector into 5th, etc.

Link, ViPEC, Motec, etc ECU's have individual cylinder fuel, ignition trim, so can compensate for uneven flow into cylinders due to a front facing intake plenum. This feature is usually used on high hp engines to get the most hp from them and requires more sensors to achieve this.

Also have to look at setup, tune time. Aftermarket ECU's require more time to tune, setup the extra features, sensors, etc. Stock ECU already has a base tune you can use (some tuners have created base tunes for these types of conversions), setup for factory sensors, etc.

Aftermarket ECU's are great if you want to change factory sensors for better sensors, run additional sensors, have extra safety features, datalog sensors, etc. Also can have knock control (optional device is needed).

HOW the **** do you use different size injectors ? does anybody else see what I mean? How can ANYONE believe this guy?


IF you were in ANYWAY right about the plenums flowing differently, IT will NOT make certain cylinders lean, it will make them RICHER if anythin. The injector injects FUEL at the ports in the head. NOT before the plenum.


Jesus christ.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: JamesW on February 15, 2014, 08:10:21 PM
If the injectors have ANY range between them they should not be used.

If a "440" cc injector in number 6 and a "420" cc injector in number 1, What happens when your tuning the engine right on the brink? Number 6 cylinder will be fine, what about number 1? Lean as ****..

Stock ECU is good if engine is fairly close to stock and can use work arounds (what I was mentioning) if want to go that way. There's alot more to it than I mentioned above, but a pro can explain it better than I could.

In my opinion Link ECU is best (motorsport options), but can use stock ECU with work arounds if on a smaller budget and not needing the pro features of the aftermarket ECU to gain the most from engine, etc.

It's 4x ignition, 4x injector -

http://www.linkecu.com/products/engine-management-ecus/g4plus-storm

But I would think that's for a 4 cylinder engine.

It depends on which Link ECU you choose -

http://www.linkecu.com/products/engine-management-ecus/g4plus-xtreme

Same with other ECU manufacturers who have ECU's for different engines, applications.

If it was my choice, Motec ECU.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: JamesW on February 16, 2014, 07:59:48 PM
Exactly, so you need to run 3x ignition drivers which will create a wasted spark ignition setup. And batch fire injection with 3x injector drivers out of the 4 available.

Photo time. Got back in to my skyline today after not touching it for awhile. Got a new car this week that will tow my car trailer to track days when I finally end up being able to go. Immaculate V8 SS. Trying to sell the s14 I have at the mo that I never posted pics of. Haven't fully bolted down skirts yet as was going to find widebody gaurds for it but just wanna sell it now. Looks way better than when I first got it though.

Replaced some of my 3'' piping back down to 2 1/2'' & have finally relocated BOV to where it should be. I'm still having troubles with air leaks though which is pissing me right off. Smoke testing it again is showing a leak near one of the runners & if it's the plenum I'm gonna rage. Can't pin point it as of yet though but not good. Have changed back to factory brake hose so hopefully braking goes back to normal. Note - Some of the I/C piping still not clamped.

Lo & behold, the plenum has leaks. Extremely frustrating because I found one of the runners leaking from welds, run putty around where the runner meets the plenum only to find another one leaking at a spot I can't get at so have had to take the whole plenum off AGAIN to putty up all the runners. Putting plenum back on now so hopefully no leaks but we'll see.

From now when it comes to Fab work, I'm either doing it myself or going with the well known Pros SINCO or RIPS.

Besides the huge pain in my ***, have ordered my 650cc DW injectors through Dave at BLPP & have been keeping in touch with Andy at X tune. He says I'm almost there but I definitely need to scrap my D1 Sepc FPR as it is a disaster waiting to happen so gonna get a genuine Tomei one this week. Then I should be ready for Nistune & dyno. I'm suspecting I might need to change my AFM to a z32 one though as with the fuel upgrades I should be pushing just over 200kw.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: benji-nz on March 19, 2014, 08:55:28 PM
2 things to watch with the Tomei reg. 1st, if it isnt $170 ish for the S type then its a fake, and then again it still could be so buy from a source like; http://www.redlineperformance.co.nz/products/fuel/fuel-pressure-regulator/

http://www.tomeiusa.com/dealers.html#pacific

2nd. Mine was playing up as the seal was apparently a little stuck. I backed out the adjustment screw right out and gave it a shake and sorted it out. Happened to mine, probably not to yours but it worked for me!

Also a good call to have the Z32 afm sorted before the tune. Would hate to run out of space on the power climb.

Bugger on the plenum as well, you havent had good luck with that have you.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on March 19, 2014, 08:58:09 PM
Bad luck all round. All I wanted to do for my 21st birthday was get my car back to drifting & that was 1st of feb. It's been garaged so long & it's so depressing. And there is always new problems. But such is the life of cars on a budget.

I was expecting to pay about $200 for one. I'm just going to sell on my D1 spec one & keep the gauge & start sourcing a genuine one tomorrow.

Have sent AGRORB a message as he was selling a brand new z32 afm & plug recently so I'll see if he's still got it.

Post by: benji-nz on March 19, 2014, 10:42:29 PM
Sounds good. I got mine from Redline and laid out how it went above. Im sure it would happen to any reg that has sat a little while.

You almost could of gotten away with a freddy plenum, but that too have those leak issues in a random order!

Downtrail has made this plenum and have sent him a message. But it's still a big f*ck around. Has disturbed the new gaskets & seals on everything I have to take off and just takes more time. Paying big money to putty up it and make it unreliable.

You should budget around 20-30k to get into amature level of competition drifting. Cars arn't cheep man especially if you want to race them they get even more expensive. Stuff breaks, stuff fails, stuff leaks, things explode, things catch fire, cars hit walls, cars hit cars,

If you want to know the cost of competing for a single day put it this way it cost me personally 1-1.5k a day to run my car on the track. thats tyres, fuel, fuel for tow car, lunch, consumables and thats if nothing breaks!

Look ive held my word and i'll repair it for you no problems. its a little frustrating yeah but welcome to the world of modified cars you get your good runs and you get your bad runs. Not that it's your problem but when i built your plenum I busted my *** to get it out to you before the new year because I knew how frustrated you were with RB intakes and you wanted to get your car going etc. and thats with me working 12h days at my day job, on call 24hours a day, Running my own company keeping up with paper work paying tax, Organizing x-mas  and dealing with a teething 1.5 year old all at the same time. Thats why i have a huge waiting list at present theres only one me and it seems I put out 1 fire and 2 more start.

But those are my problems not yours and it shouldn't reflect my workmanship you just managed to catch me at a very stressful time.

Just waiting on my plenum to come back and then time to get it going again!

New genuine Tomei type S fuel regulator from redline performance set up. My 650cc DW injectors have arrived. Nice to see they come with adapter plugs that will allow for plugging straight in. Have also purchased AGRORBS near new Z32 AFM & plug which I'm picking up tomorrow from Automania. New High tensile bolts to bolt intake mani up. Doing it right hopefully!!

Now to continue looking for a ECU & tune solution. Andy at X tune is being very inconsistent with replying to me so am losing faith very quick in his ability to provide a good service. Will look around for another nistune tuner for the while.

Most aftermarket ECU's are based off stock ECU, so any tuner can tune a Nistune ECU (no different to reflashing modern stock ECU's).

I'll pass as I have no idea wtf what does what so just gonna stick with what I currently know most about (nistune)

Have been in touch with a man named Jan sismilich from Rotorua who will install the nistune to my ECU for $420 then I have to take it to a nistuner of my choice. He says that Andy from Xtune doesn't even actually install Nistune, he just chips the ECU & having messaged Andy I got a quicker than normal response kinda confirming what Jan has said. Andy also worried about my cooling system trying to tell me to go electric fans over my viscous with shroud which I'm not listening to.

I've asked him to provide with the advantages/disadvantages of going with either as I will easily be able to make my decision.


''Hi - if you go with me you won't be needing to spend that $420 to install the nistune board.

With the ecu you presently have you have the option of not using a nistune board at all; or if you prefer to use one I am able to supply and install as part of the service with the only additional cost of the parts.

It's not actually a necessary part of tuning your setup and the benefits over retuning the ecu as it is may or may not appeal to you. If you wish I am able to call you tomorrow to clarify.

Kind regards,
Andy McKenzie''

Post by: downtrail on April 06, 2014, 10:20:23 PM
The factory fan has a nasty habit of blowing to pieces on the race track lol taking out the radiator. This is why electric is preferred.

Andy is spot on with what he is saying. The nistune board provides a software interface between your laptop and the ecu's config. you do not need it to tune the factory ecu it just makes it easier. Andy will use an emulator and a new eeprom to change the ecu's config. To re tune it wak the emulator back in re tune then burn to eeprom. No diffrence between techniques ones just more technical that the simple software interface.

I've done 3 track days and my conclusions are:
They don't like high RPM, I killed one of my fans after it, it was just engaged the whole time and sounded like a diesel truck. The next one I got worked fine but it also played up after the track day but went back to normal after a few days.

Under hard braking it appears the engine moved forward and the fan touched the radiator in a couple of places very very lightly.

However it's proven that the viscous fan with a shroud works better than electric fans for cooling.

Demco's failure can be attributed most likely to imbalance in the rotation of the fan, vibrations causing the metal to fatigue and break. They don't just blow to bits, I'm willing to bet the water pump housing failed first. Things such as trimming fan blades, improperly tightened nuts and even just a cheap water pump casting could have done it.

If an electric fan fails, you may never know it has until the temps start rising. Viscous fans rarely fail outright.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: downtrail on April 07, 2014, 11:14:47 AM
In all reality you do not need a fan while car is in motion if you do then you have some serious air flow problems.

The stock fan works via radiant heat from radiator core reaching the spring on front of clutch which expands and engages clutch more that spins the fan faster. Usually only happens at lower speeds. The clutch can lock and fan spins faster, but that's age related (clutch part fails, which is common on higher km engines). It's best to replace clutch with a new clutch, don't use a second hand clutch on a racetrack.

That can be the rear gearbox mount, common failure (check for cracks in rubber). Also gearstick moves around more when cornering which is another thing you should notice.

Nismo engine, gearbox mounts are alot better (stronger rubber) and help with this problem.

Doing what you said, the ticking seems to be the same pattern as the vibrations coming off the injectors so maybe that's just how they are. Other than that, it's starting first pop and running nicely. Bit of black stuff spitting from exhaust too but take it that's normal.

FPR or injectors. Need a ECU tune, as the injectors are most probably open more than they should be. If have Nistune it's easy to change injectors, AFM yourself. Getting it set correctly on fuel, ignition map needs a wideband, dyno, etc.

As funny as it sounds I might just go with the E&H path.....
The do it once, do it right is just stuck in my head. No one else will even get back to me when I enquire. The key to business starts with a good first impression.

''We replace your existing ECU with the new LINK G4+ plug in, wire in an
inlet air temp sensor, boost control dial, and boost control solenoid, run a
vacuum line from your manifold to ECU, set up base ignition timing, bolt car
on the dyno and tune.

Link G4+ ECU $1859+
Inlet air temp sensor $84+
Boost control solenoid $104+
Excess loom $45+
Boost control dial $15+
Installation $350+
Dyno tuning $1000+

Total including GST comes to $3975.00
We do this as a package deal for the cheaper price of $3490.00''

Dyno tuning seems SO expensive, regardless of just about everywhere you go (with a few exceptions)!
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: b00stinz on April 24, 2014, 06:06:34 PM
Do it once do it right may be good but how reliable is the rest of your motor, the internals and the rest. $3490 on a tune and something else like oil pump fails and causes your engine to destroy itself can be a doomed mission from the start. However that's worst case scenario.

At least you have a tune on the ECU and all the bits and pieces on the car, after you make changes to the motor it's only a short tuning session to get everything sorted.

What I'm trying to say is, tuning properly is good. But for maximal benefit, the entire motor should be fresh and well built.

One option I did consider was a full tune and work the car, but then the engine was right up there in mileage and may be stressed to it's limit which will render my tune useless if something even so minor as a headgasket blows. Hence why nistune would have been a better option in case things went wrong, I didn't dump a ton of money and have some left over to rebuild the motor or fix broken stuff.

Chip tune it, save yourself a fortune. A link is plenty overkill for what you are trying to achieve. That's easily 3k that can be put into entering events, tyres, fuel, maintenance.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: downtrail on April 24, 2014, 08:45:14 PM
Id go wire in over plug in can use it for another motor etc if you wanted in future. If you want an affordable af ecu then megasquirt is the way to go can do everything a link can do even peak and hold  Injection if you so desier. Theyll be people come bag megasquirt but you can acheive the same result and save a heap of $$ at the same time. A more expensive ecu aint going to make a diffrence
just a bigger hole in wallet.

Andy at xtune still mucking me around so I went in to E&H today and had a chat. Deciding to go with link as I have enquired to most tuners in Auckland i.e Hitech, ST Hitec, E&H etc & they all think a Link is by far the best option. If things don't work out well, I still have the Link ECU & accessories which is the majority of the cost.

E&H are also amazing to deal with & having them 15 min away from me is ideal.

Wanting to go with the stand alone & trying to find ECU to factory rb loom adapter harness but I don't think they're around anymore. So might just have to go wire in.

They reckon I will be able to get tuned not next week, but the one after.

Post by: Ryeoon on May 16, 2014, 06:26:36 PM
Have been slack on the updates but car is currently at E&H! Downtrail has made me a fantastic Link to loom adapter harness however having 2 issues with it which I need to sort out. One is that the ECCS relay is not being activated by the LINK & also once the ignition is turned on, the fuel pump comes on but when car is turned off, the fuel pump stays running. Once these 2 things are fixed E&H say there is no reason why it shouldn't fire up with the base tune they have put on the LINK. Told them to put work on hold as they're wanting to charge me $400+ to fix these 2 issues!!!!!!!!!

 Problems go away when I plug a factory 25DE ecu in to move the car around.

Filled it up today with 98 pump gas today for it to be tuned on & also they're gonna tune to 14 psi with a 7k rpm limit.

Went & seen my skyline at E&H today after dealing with some problems with it over the past few days. Good to see it running today on the new Link G4. I went there to pull fuel rail off to find out why fuel was leaking to save me some coin from them doing it & one of the new o rings that came with the DW injectors was split which I've read is all too common with new DW o rings on there injectors. Tomorrow they're gonna start the dyno preparations i.e Boost leak check etc then hopefully they'll start the Dyno tuning in the afternoon.

They didn't set the fuel pump settings up right on the Link but that's sweet now. Apparently Links are also not able to trigger the ECCS relay properly & require another relay wired in which is what E&H have done but Downtrail tells me he could have set it up to run off a Aux from the Link which would have saved me some coin from E&H as they know I'm on a strict budget. To stick to the budget they've knocked out me getting a boost dial & installation but I'm not fussed because I'd rather have with boost permanently set.

I'm not quite excited yet though as I know they'll be in contact with me tomorrow when they start having dyno issues...............

Lucky I didn't get excited. Intake manifold cracked one of the runners on pressure testing at E&H. I went in today after work as I was looking at taking car home to pull it all out again but decided to try knead it up. They're gonna try pressure test it in again in the morning & go from there. I asked them how much pressure they put in it & they said they pressure test at 20 psi for 14psi applications.

See how we go tomorrow I guess.

you have a RB25DE with a NEO turbo right? early RB25DE heads flow better then RB20 heads but should flow enough to max out the turbo.

are you still running the stock dump pipe or do you have an aftermarket one? because that will cause an issue.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on May 27, 2014, 10:12:20 AM
Yeah. Stock dump pipe still. Might look at getting sinco top mount with gate for next modification.

They said the response is amazing though so it can't flow that bad.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: benji-nz on May 27, 2014, 10:39:52 AM

Car picked up & going in for wheel alignment tomorrow. Max caster, max neg camber in front, 1 toe out total in front, -2 total camber rear, 4 total toe in rear.

3 inch cat back with muffler from dump pipe
25DET neo 45v4 turbo with 14 psi
Yellow jacket coil packs
650cc Daestchwerks injectors
550 walbro fuel pump
custom front facing plenum
HKS bov copy that doesn't leak (lol)
DSR FMIC (E&H said would be best for next upgrade to thicker)

Will scan up dyno shortly 208.8kw at wheels.

Car goes Mint! Only having trouble with the brakes. The pedal is stiff as f*k & braking is very hard. Tried bleeding all the calipers but they're all good so thinking it might be the booster. Also my speedo drive cable inside bit seems to of bunged up so had no speed readings for the day which was a bit bumming.

Car was definitely not set up for grip as I was going sideways on all the corners which they didn't seem to mind. But I did get a bit carried away towards the end of the day and catch the front but the bumper support I made done it's job. Think the 10 degrees of caster might be a bit too much because the switches are crazy violent.

Drifting Hampton full track Monday, can't wait.

Thats exactly it. Regards of if they check or not, its the feature holding your behind to the floor. Spend a couple of dollars more and have more options other than drifting, if not for just the safety aspect that it has reached a particular standard. Then again I think that a 'particular' home job could beat the kyouu mounts but that's not my place to argue with the LVVTA!

I currently have the "kyouu" mounts, universal rails from NZKW and Racepro seats and brackets. As per the LVVTA standards I shouldnt have a problem getting a cert, but you never know haha.

drift events are run under clubsport guide lines in schedule A of the msnz rule book.

i have jps fixed back seats bolted to factory rails and scrutineers hate them because if you wiggle the top of the seat it has a fair amount of movement. but they have examined the movement and found it to be in the factory slides so if nissan found that tolerance safe they do too.

im currently changing seats anyway as i dont like the movment after reviewing my videos.

Those Kyouu mounts are fine. They're also certabale. Only part I don't trust is the little bracket for the seat belt mount.  Your going with harnesses anyway so you'll be alright

Seat rail should hopefully arrive from RENEN 2moz. Made this switchboard today so I can start hard wiring everything to it & clean out the spagetti monster. Weather is looking up for the weekend too!

Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on June 16, 2014, 02:45:27 PM
Yeap. Car handled the day like a champ. Only issue I have at the moment is I'm having a problem with bullddozing and I'm putting it down to needing wider front wheels with good tyres so I'm on the look out for a pair of 17x9 drift teks or brotas or whatever I find really. Run em with a pair of nittos and front wheel grip should be hella better. Also throw in a bit more neg camber in the rear cause I'm getting no smoke atm with my -0.5 each side haha.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: sk8seddon on June 16, 2014, 06:33:58 PM
for more grip in the front play with Tyre pressures 1st, unless you have el-cheapo triangles or similar you will notice a night and day difference. i run like 25psi. I've noticed up to 5 psi increases when the tires heat up.  

but yup good tyres up front and correct pressures will give more confidence to push harder and learn faster.

as for more smoke, thats what im struggling with at the moment...
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on June 16, 2014, 07:15:20 PM
Yeah, I'm running 17x7s up front with budget *** tyres with average tread. I'm quite surprised cause coming round the top of the s bend I'm limiting 3rd slapping 4th mid drift almost back up to limiter sideways & still the tiniest amount of smoke as you see in the vid. So I'll try -3 camber in the rear each side.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: sk8seddon on June 16, 2014, 07:19:50 PM
how old are the tyres ya using on the back? i was using 2nd hand 5 yr old tires and they didnt smoke at all, the new tyres i have just bought are cheap china stuff but fresh rubber might smoke more...

i have .5 deg camber on the rear but i wana leave it at that so i get even wear out of my tires.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on June 16, 2014, 07:24:38 PM
Maybe that's our problems cause I'm running the same. Think my tyres are quite old also and I know rubber hardens with age.

I'm not sure if more camber is the answer here. If you're wanting more smoke,  you need more grip I.E more rubber on the ground. Also you'll need to get the wheels spinning faster. I'm sure I read somewhere,  Dylan Barry Whoolhouse drifts the whole Hampton track in 4th.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: downtrail on June 17, 2014, 06:57:25 PM
Yep you are right you want more tyre on the road. Old tyres are good for getting the feel for drifting but new tyres  change the game completely. Run the rear quite soft so it squats onto the tyres. But you then run into the problem of running out of power to keep a drift going. its a play off between having enough speed and enough power to break traction at speed etc. if you dial in more grip but don't have the power to back it then its not going to help at all sort of thing.

Yes hampton is a fast track. We enter the first part from the 100m breaking marker you'll see it in your video thats flat tack in 4th around 160km/h ish

Thats sideways at that 100m marker so you'll see how much speed you need to carry to even get to the first corner lol.

But keep practicing good on ya :)
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on June 17, 2014, 07:26:24 PM
Smoke isn't a really a priority here so I'm not too fussed. More the front traction at the moment. But seeing as I don't have the same power as a lot of people do I can run a bit more neg camber than they would as I think it would be better for me learning to control sliding as opposed to having trouble trying to break traction for the time being.

Okay so I'm looking for a few things at the moment so gonna post them here. First I'm after a r32 25DE sump or any sump that fits as I'm not sure if they're interchangeable. Second I'm after some 17x9 or wider PAIR of wheels. 3rd I'm after a r32 automatic open diff. If anyone has any of these please get in touch.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: DeadBroke on June 17, 2014, 08:45:54 PM
Breaking traction is the easy part. But if your having trouble keeping it spinning,  there's other ways to make it slippery besides camber.  Increasing tyre pressure and hardening up the damper can help.

You don't wanna have to go through twice as many tyres due to excessive camber wear.

What's wrong with the shimmed lsd? I saw an open r200 for $50 on FB not long ago. Can't remember what page it was on though.  I remember being quite annoyed because I paid full price  for one at a wrecker.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: gtsr on June 17, 2014, 09:20:57 PM
Compound of tyre helps. Harder compounds tend to spin better and last longer.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on June 17, 2014, 09:33:19 PM
Shimmed lsds open up. Rather just buy a cheap auto open diff to weld because of the better ratio & sell my shimmed lsd on for profit. I'm going to run -1.5 each side so won't be that excessive. Also is it actually true that 18s will have less lock than 17s or is the less lock more a problem with the wider wheels?
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: DeadBroke on June 17, 2014, 10:05:36 PM
Nah that only applies if you have increased steering lock. The higher the offset the closer the wheel will be on the castor arm.
Title: Ryeoons R32

Pic courtesy of 4ever sideways.  The lower offset you run (the more your wheels poke out) the bigger the gap between your inner wheel and castor arm at full lock. The more clearance you have, the more lock you can run. But clearance shouldn't be an issue for someone still running stock lock.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: DeadBroke on June 17, 2014, 10:22:39 PM
If you decide to go with tie rod/ rack  spacers there is a chance of rub, but adding wheel spacers will widen this gap.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: Ryeoon on June 18, 2014, 12:07:48 PM
So there will be no lock difference for me running 18x9 rather than 17x9s? Offset being the same of course.
Title: Ryeoons R32
Post by: DeadBroke on June 18, 2014, 02:01:08 PM
Nah you won't lose any lock bro. Also if you can't find a diff. If you're desperate enough,  Perrys auto dismantlers has a few. All rwd Nissan diffs for round $100. Including 5x1 lsd diffs! Guy doesn't know the difference lol.

Today was not a good day for me. Put my new wheels on last night after flaring the gaurds & had interference with wishbone/shock. My father went to put it on my car trailer this morning to take down for wheel alignment & curbed the whole outside lip of my BRAND NEW WHEEL =(. PMO big time. Followed by rookie wheel alignment dude telling me he can't lower my caster angle as they're fully wound in. DOH! Tryed explaining him how caster works followed by him asking me if I want positive or negative caster. DOUBLE DOH! Dude who runs the shop is doing it for me now anyway & he's on to it so picking up tomorrow.

Got some new good quality 25mm hub centric bolt on spacers to stop the interference of my tyres & hopefully will fill out the rolled gaurds nicely. ANYWAY drifting on Sunday at Hampton again so can't %100 knock me down. Can't wait to try out the new Westlake Sport RS semi slicks....

Oh also went to Zebra u-pick today to find a sump to modify as a homer at work in my downtime. Found a stagea with a rb25 but managed to get all but two sump bolts off as the dam power steering rack/other sh*t was in the way. Gonna go back tomorrow if weather is all good with big f*ck off tools. Hopefully get it off aswell as snagging up a auto 3x2 open diff to lock up!

Post by: Ryeoon on June 27, 2014, 05:34:00 PM
Quick pick before spacers are on & final prep is done for Sunday. Forced to run nearly 10 degrees of caster so the wheels don't hit rear of the arch. Will have to cut it down at some point a run better caster.

Absolutely mint day! Got sooo much track time. Decided to run with the skirts off. The new Westlake semi slicks were like 100x better than what I was used to. Have started learning to feint in to corners now. Have butchered my gaurds trying to stop wheel rub with still no %100 success. My drifting is improving fast though & am now about to start putting my cage from Racecraft engineering in myself. Can't wait until the next day I'm able to drift which I'm thinking is the 27th of July back at Hampton.

My to do list until then is install cage, harnesses & passenger seat as well as full gaurd clearance. Not an overly extensive list because I'm loving the drifting & don't wanna miss out any action until something breaks. Getting that dam sump off the zebra stagea & modifying it would be an added bonus too.

With my actual drifting itself I find I'm having trouble after switching at the S bend as I get to limiter quick & I'm having to slap fourth but because the driveline is under load & car is twisting, fourth isn't always easy to get. Maybe the cage will help keep the chassis a bit more rigid but I should probably also get a strut brace. Hydro hand brake is also a definite upgrade in the near future.

All the seal taken off. Rust around window edge which isn't very surprising. Would say majority of r32s have it now. The seal wasn't even bad.

Yeah but I'm still having caster trouble. It's not counter steering well enough like you can still see me fighting to switch it.

Sussed out a R32 non hicas rack & picking up some A32 tie rods from BNT tomorrow. Also might drop cross member & relocate steering rack like 30mm forward. Probably going to extend my LCAs 25mm too then see how I'm getting on for lock. Wondering if I should still try a rack spacer on top too.

No point moving the rack forwards untill you start shortning steering arms and messing around with acherman.  Youll just introduce more bump steer by doing so now.

New non hicas steering rack which looks like it already has A-series tie rods on it. Going to extend the Lcas my self by 25mm this week. Also gonna try taking off my front sway bar but running a strut brace.

Getting a bit of an idea of how the pick up sits for modifying my sump. It's rather annoying that the pick up is angled. Not sure what I'll do about that yet. I also managed to munch the pick up filter a tad in sump removal but pretty sure it's algood cause it didn't rip it & it's not even close to blocking port.

i don't think so if your engine was running a hicas pump and you didnt buy a bracket with that non hicas pump then you will need to buy the bracket still its stupid i know i was banging my head about it too

Got a non hicas bracket for $10. Stoked. Also extended LCAs by 25mm. Have pulled off all power steering lines & I'm going to use hydraulic hose to make new ones that are clean & out the way. Not sure if I need to keep the sensor plug thing on or not though. Main priority right now is doing the sump then back in to putting on new non hicas rack, pump, extended LCAs etc. Also have 2 pairs of new RJS cam lock 5 point harnesses. All go as usual!

Just finished removing all power steering lines, hicas, pump, ac unit etc etc. Now I can finally clean the engine bay up. More space to play with on both sides of the bay. Still working on Sump. priority number one now & then fit that along with all the new bits. Shweeeeet.

P.S Just like to put a big middle finger up to whoever invented hicas & hope he wasn't happy after being rich =P

Bro skidpan will only set you back. 60-70 bux. It doesn't murder tyres either.  Think of it this way. The fine you get from doing it on the street will outweigh the fee to skid your car all day legally.

Hey guys, been awhile. The new layout is off putting for me so I don't come on here as much. Here's what is happening with the drifter at the mo.

Putting old sump back on for time being but having bit of trouble cleaning out. Have used brake cleaner but dried in to a brown powder so gonna try brake cleaner it again. Once that's back on, solid mount the r32 non hicas rack & check out the lock. Have taken gaurds off ready for a bit of cutting  if so & thinking about cutting back the gaurd lip & putting on flares. Then once new rack & hubs all fitted up sweet, then it's back on the ground with wheel alignment with new filter/oil.

Also doing the power steering pump setup. Still trying to get a r32 non hicas reservoir but I'm liking the space and location of the non hicas pump. Running feed off pump to in front of radiator through a cooler then in to the rack then back to res neatly with proper hose. Will be running the non hicas p/s belt on the hicas crank pulley as it's been proven reliable. Just need to get the belt & hopefully it's a tad shorter compared to hicas one as that's how it measured up when checking it.

Where is a good place to get good quality oil filters from? Have noticed the Nismo ones aren't on trademe anymore?

It'd be better to run the power steering cooler off the return from the rack back to the reservoir rather than full pressure from the pump. Less hoses to pop of under pressure then

So all my steering gear is back on. Have a problem with the a31 tie rods being a tad short though as the rack ends are only on each tie rod by 3 full turns. I'm going to get the GKtech offset rack spacers as it will give me the eaxtra thread to put the rack ends on more for peace of mind & they will also imitate moving the rack forward by 25mm to help binding up so win-win. The lock is going to be the best I can get without modifying the knuckle itself so will need to cut some inner gaurding out & probably weld on new lock stops. But it looks good! More drift days coming up soon for me.

Solid mounted steering rack. I can tighten the bracket on more but want to do it graudally so I don't wreck the steering rack. Wonder if there will be any difference.

Zac Pole showed me how to do this & said just doing the one side pretty much locks it in so you can leave the odd shaped one with the rubber surround thing.

Agreed, the Laurel isn't exactly skid material yet, hoping to get an extra 3x2 open diff welded up to skid during the skidpan days. The only thing that stops me from giving it a crack is the diff ($$$), the fee in general ($$$) and that I want to pay out to get everything serviced on it again, as well as tidy some things up here and there ($$$). Running on $200 a week from part-time work, with some of that going on living costs it's hard to have the spare dosh for it. But that should change in the near future hopefully. :)

As a comment directed at the original topic, loving the modifications to the Skyline so far, it's interesting seeing what goes onto a track car that makes it a lot better at doing what it's built to do, especially the steering set-up. Keen to see more updates in regards to that :)

The requirement is that intrusion bar can not be more than half of total door aperature at front or rear. There is nothing noted in MSNZ guidelines about the intrusions having to be 100mm from Lateral footing plate.

Wheel alignment today. Not sure how this is 8 degrees of caster but it's rubbing so bad at the back. Will need to do some panel modifications for clearance. 2mm toe out in front total, -6.3 degrees on side & -8 on the other so will need to adjust camber arm down to -6.3.

Bit of a new intercooler piping set up too. Looks nice & tidy with less bits in it. Heading down to Hampton tomorrow to put the old mans rx7 on the pad to see how it handles a bit of shit & will hopefully paint interior of skyline on Sunday.

New GKtech caster arms with offset bushes up next to the cheap adjustable ones I had in. Look like the same length so I don't think they'll fix this pesky caster problem I'm having but I'm still glad I've upgraded to quality as I've found caster is super important to drifting.

The only thing I could think of putting my caster out now is the camber arms.

Nah still haven't had wheel alignment since putting in GK tech caster arms but still sorting out power steering atm. Just got r33 hard lines off a 33 rack yesterday to try fix the problem.

Will def be drifting on the 4th though. Picked up hydraulic handbrake for the old mans rx7 so that'll be down there aswell doing better than ever.

Yeah still at it. Car sitting in shed as last track day I blew both rack end seals. Need to find another R33 rack as I'd say cheaper than rebuilding. I presume they blew because I'm running no lock stops and have sweet lock. Also need to re route loom from running in wheel wells as rubbed through a few wires losing my dash internals already haha.
