Audio, Security and Electrical / Re: tidying up wiring looms - R32
« on: February 04, 2017, 09:56:15 AM »
The simplest way (not the cheapest way) is to remove all the wiring and buy one of the wiring looms made for race cars which just have the bare necessities.
The other way is to rip out all the unnecessary wiring - usually easy to spot - and if in doubt snip the wire and make sure everything you need still works - otherwise solder and heatshrink  the cut!

General Performance / Re: Bosch coil ( placement + lead length)
« on: February 04, 2017, 09:51:39 AM »
I can't really see what you are trying to acheive. Link ECU with Splitfire coils mounted in the usual position is the easiest and most tidy solution.
I don't know why you want coils in the cabin - how are you going to run the leads with out making holes in the firewall?
There is always voltage drop with long wire length. How it will affect your spark I don't know.

Maintenance & Car Care / Re: heater bypass ideas
« on: November 28, 2016, 10:30:31 AM »
You could just use a length of heater hose (although it would have to be a bit longer with no sharp bends) or you could measure and sketch out what you need and go to Repco or suchlike on a non- busy day and ask them to have a look in their bins for something close - although you would be paying more for a formed part.

Naturally Aspirated / Re: N/A Exhaust issues
« on: November 26, 2016, 12:48:09 PM »
Everyone I know has a turbo which has a quietening effect so I believe n/a needs more muffler. Pod will do nothing so don't bother. The most effective mufflers are the oval type but be wary of JDM type one that have a constriction smaller than the inlet and outlet. You will need at least one possibly two mid units - I have used this type:

If you are making a system from scratch you could use a mid unit with an oval muffler at the rear and if it is too loud you can easily add another coby.

Well spotted - so a cheap fix!

I could point you to a few places but probably can wait til you get here. I presume you have owned the car for over a year?!

Wow a rare car in good nick!
In fact so rare that I will take the unusual step of referring you to another forum which is many times bigger than ours and has a section dedicated to such classics:

General Performance / Re: Clutch not engaging
« on: November 05, 2016, 10:54:37 PM »
Did it work when you first replaced it or has it never worked with new set up? If so points to wrong clutch or release bearing.

Have you checked/bled hydraulics? Get someone to push the pedal down and see if the push rod moves - could be leaking/stuffed mastercylinder or slave cylinder.

Suspension, Steering, Braking, Wheels & Tyres / Re: r33 gtr 4wd pump
« on: October 04, 2016, 07:48:06 PM »
GTS4 May fit but V spec has the funny diff and there may be some connection. You know where the pump should be? Either above the diff or mounted to the left and above it. Have you checked that the reservoir is full? The LSD requires hydraulics and an ecu to work - unless a previous owner has ripped them out and put in a mechanical diff. Does your Hicas work?

like 1/2" NPT ready tapped to main oil gallery from the factory that I can borrow?
cheers,
sam
Don't know about 1/2in NPT but for VCT people just T off the oil pressure switch.

The standard site loader is very restrictive so usually use something like photobucket to get pics up. I don't know if you have to be here for a certain time before you can send a PM (try that first). I will try to PM you my email address.

Sorry up in Auckland so can't call round. There is no boost solenoid on the RB20 so if it is a stock set up there should be a boost line going direct to the turbo  wastegate actuator which has a 10 psi spring. Can you get a pic up of your underbonnet set up?

Yep I tapped into the turbo itself.
