  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Spool - low end power comparision

    Put a post up in noodlewa and thought it might be interesting to compare what sort of low end hp people are getting. Would be really interesting to hear from V8 and supercharged people as well. Here is the Template Car : Engine : Turbo / Supercharger : Mods to Note :

  1. Drift E34

    G'day I currently have an E34 535 rolling shell and a spare LS1 as well as a spare RB25DET. Both motors are stock and I am looking at putting one of them in the E34, gutting the shell and taking it drifting. I have test fitted the LS1 and so far, nothing fits. The engine is way too far forward as the K frame is quite far forward and then there is another bar behind it as well as a drag link to miss as well as the steering box on the drivers side to avoid to make the headers fit. ...

  2. Gearbox: Worn synchro hub and slider (Experts chime in please)

    I am currently rebuilding a R34 GTT gearbox that has a problem getting stuck in 4th gear and unable to down shift from 5th to 3rd even if you rev match (block out condition). Sometimes you have to jerk the shifter to get it to pop out of 4th, but funny enough, all the gears goes in like butter even on full song. All the gears can be selected in/out with the car running, clutch-in whilst on the brakes (i.e. the main shaft not rotating) indicating that it is not clutch drag related. ...

  3. Opinions on turbo

    Yo, My GT3582R is starting to howl, looking at changing it. Opinions on the following, to suit 1JZ in a JZA70 . Power goal is no more than 400RWHP, plan on doing Targa/ rallysprints in it in the future. New CHRA Pro's: cheapest/ simplest option Con's: I think the turbo is a touch too big GT3076R Pro's: should give me the response I want. It's a Garrett

  6. Nissan Service Dude

    Anyone work for Nissan and/or can get parts cheap? Wife has a T31 X-Trail diesel and the past six weeks the DPF has been giving us the shits... for what ever reason, regen is not occurring enough and causing performance issues etc. Wondering what the process is to do manual burn, and what price is to replace DPF if I determine that it is at the point of no return. Cheers Matt

  8. Toyota R150F Gearbox issue

    Lads, mate of mine has a forerunner that is having gearbox issues. He can select all gears in order 1 into 2, into 3, into 4, into 5 as normal with no issues. However when he tries to select 3rd from either 4th or 5th it will lock him out. He can trick it by going back to the 2nd gear gate and going into 3rd that way. Anyone have any ideas what the issue could be? or things to look out for that could potentially be the problem?

  10. BMW tuning

    G'day Iv got a BMW X5 with a rough running engine that doesnt owe me much and a spare LS2 with a 6L80E Looking at dropping the LS2 in (have measured it up and its heaps smaller than the 4.4i V8) but the only thing stopping me is the BMW electronics. I'm guessing the onboard computers are going to freak out without the factory motor in place and I'm wondering if there is anyone in Perth that can help me out with it. Planing on running the factory LS2 loom and ecu as a stand alone and...

  13. FG XR6T Manual conversion

  14. Vertical gate pistol shifter

    Recently bought a 4 speed dog box with a long v gate pistol shifter. Interested in peoples opinions on how practical they are for either a street or circuit application. After having a play with it on the work bench. I can see how awesome they would be for drags however downshifting from 3rd gear to 2nd Looks like it would be a pingpingpingping.

  15. 1jz drive belt line up

    Noticed on my 1jz supra that the alternator pulley sits forward compared to all the other pullies (harmonic, water pump, power steering). It also looks like the drive belt has had one tooth section cut out so its 1 tooth thinner than the original belt to accomodate for this! Wondering whats going on here? I'm assuming the alternator is not an original and they tired to make do? I probably wont do anything about it until i need to pull the radiator out or other work is required.. Cheers

  16. rb26 inlet valve stem discolouration/damage?

    Hi All, I've just removed my inlet manifold to have it cleaned up and painted, and noticed that the two inlet valves in cyl 3 have some discolouration on the valve stems immediately belowpingthe valve guides. My first thought was that it was possibly PCV junk, but cyl 4 that gets an 'equal' share of the PCV gasses looks totally fine. There is also a very distinct sharp edge at the bottom of the discolouration that makes me think this is abrasion causing some heat? This is an R33 GTR...

  17. V8 Soarer gearbox issue

    Have done lot of research and seems this is a shift solenoid problem, however it's slightly different to what is usually diagnosed as it went away for a little while after driving for about 35mins on a hot day. Then back to problem after running it next time. OD switched on I.e. No light on, however intermittently flashes. Drive shifts from 1st to 3rd and no overdrive present. Tried to shift into 2nd and sometimes it does, and sometimes 2nd acts like neutral. After 35mins driving on one...

  18. Dropping the ZF auto out of the Falcon

    Ok after some research, it's almost certain the flexplate bolts are loose. Climbed under the car to have a look, there's no fucking inspection plate, how the fuck do I get the torque convertor off!

  19. Constant rattling noise

    Have an annoying noise in the falcon at about 1500rpm when driving, it sounds like a playing card in the spokes of a bike. Have checked everything I can, Jimmah had the car for a month and he couldn't find it either. It goes away or gets quieter the minute it's under load, soon as your back to cruising revs it comes back, doing my head in. Have heard the flex plate bolts can work loose and make noise, almost tempted to rip the box out and check. Anyone heard of this?
