General Skyline Discussion / weigh bridge (or something like that)
« on: March 02, 2016, 12:42:12 PM »
I got given this fancy  ::) digital performance meter (Power Meter i-D) - I'm sure it's not very accurate but I figure it would be good for a laugh so I hooked it up. It seems this thing needs vehicle weight amongst other parameters to get it working.
Where would be the best place to get a car weighed (preferably for free, of course) fairly accurately?

General Skyline Discussion / Nissan FAST on Win7
« on: February 28, 2016, 05:28:04 PM »
Hi all,
Anyone running Nissan FAST on Windows 7? I think mine is Home edition 64bit and can't get it to work - tried compatibility mode and still comes up with an error message...

has anyone tried c23 rear diff 4.6 or 4.9 on a street car? i have a 4.3 and not sure if its best to stick with it or go lower with c23 one.

General Performance / stalling problem
« on: February 16, 2016, 06:00:24 PM »
the engine revs drops and sometimes stalls when give a hard stab at brake pedal.
when braked with moderate force, the rev picks back up before hitting zero but panic stop kills it.
it's not the brake booster, i disconnected and still does it.
i think it tends to happen more when engine is fully warmed up.
any ideas?

Hi all,
I'm gonna ditch the hicas and there are a few different suppliers of lock bar.
Anyone care to recommend based on experience?

i'm swapping diff & driveshafts - there is a massive 12 point nut (38mm +, as my 38mm socket won't fit) and supposedly 6 point nut underneath that at the hub end.
can anyone tell me the exact sizes for those nuts, so i can go buy them - i suppose i can buy the next size up and swap if it doesn't fit but it's a bit of hassle as well as a waste of time.

Forced Induction / catch can
« on: August 18, 2014, 08:25:16 PM »
so i figured i'd need one as i wanna take it to track day some time.
basically it's a container with baffles or steel wool inside from what i hear?
question - does it have like a lid which you can open up and put steel wool or how does it work?
i want to weld a piece together and solder up a couple of nipples and a ball valve so I can drain contaminant when full.

Maintenance & Car Care / oil filter thread size
« on: March 12, 2014, 09:57:53 AM »
i'd like to double check oil filter thread size before i order remote filter mount kit.
according to the research i've done it's 3/4-16", but wanna make sure.

i vaguely remember reading something about putting washer(s) to remove movement on the hicas rack instead of replacing with a lock bar on the old D1NZ forum.
can anyone elaborate on this - D1NZ forum's long gone, i think.

Forced Induction / chiping on r32 ecu
« on: August 08, 2013, 12:18:01 PM »
so, i had a tune done by andy from x tune ages ago and need it tweaked up but seems like he's not doing it any more - no reply to email and phone goes straight to his voicemail.
what are my options - basically i had a socket put in place of factory chip and had emulator running to fiddle with the tune then had it burned on a new chip. i'd like to stick with this budget setup cos its just a matter of doing the same thing, no more outlay other than road tune/dyno time.

Forced Induction / which one max out first - clutch or AFM?
« on: July 22, 2013, 09:24:18 AM »
when putting a bigger turbo on, which one maxes out first?
currently have a stock AFM and HD xtreme clutch on R32 RB25DE+t, i'm curious to know which i should upgrade first (i know the correct answer is both =))

Forced Induction / metal air intake pipe for r32
« on: May 17, 2013, 07:18:17 PM »
does anyone make a metal air intake pipe or has a template for it?
im deleting BOV and PCV return, so it's a bit pointless to buy a silicone one with provisions for those ports.

General Skyline Discussion / recommendation for a good bender
« on: April 05, 2013, 03:07:07 PM »
can anyone tell me a good tube bender (mild steel, mandrel, 3")?
i used tube bending ltd at cryers road near ti rakau rd before and found them to be "average".

General Performance / resonator in place of catalytic converter
« on: February 25, 2013, 10:35:00 AM »
ok i have a short coby in place of cat (originally it had a straight pipe but i put a coby because it was too loud).
unfortunately it is still too loud and droney, so im thinking of putting a muffler style resonator (oval cross section) there.
has anyone done something like that? and are there short enough resonators on the market?

Suspension, Steering, Braking, Wheels & Tyres / half shaft lengths
« on: February 06, 2013, 07:57:57 PM »
how many different lengths half shafts are there for say, RB & SR Nissans?
is it a matter of having different length "shaft" and the same spline/CV/flange (apart from 3x2 & 5x1 pattern)?
