    I'd like that thing more if it wasn't obviously built out of spite for how shabby my car was

  • Maybe they did? :O but there is not the same market available to them. I imagine they get a deal of some sort on the revo stuff, where you can get an entire catalog for an existing car and pump out modz. So you can spend x on a used car with a full inventory...

  • Workshop round the corner always asks me for bits/help/whatever whenever a Silvia comes through. I had to check out this S15 some kid just bought. Looks like a tidy red car, wait hang on what brakes are those?

    Yes thats right. Someone has...

    When a young Nopistons welded tubs in, he despaired and panicked, as he had not thought about what to do with the items that normally live in those places. Fuse boxes, washer bottles, overflow bottles, etc., and he did not want to "tuck" or...

  • Seems weird to use intentionally use stainless nuts on inconel studs. Steels expand faster than inconel - I've nerded out many times, OEM Nissan turbo studs/nuts are inconel, AND use locking tabs. The "sr20 turbo falling off" problem is when...

    Same... my computer blew up, I was in shitposting withdrawal so decided to post it on there. Surprisingly less LS1 comments than I expected. Usual yank dumb comments tho. I thought it would be immediately downvoted by the autistic imgur patrols who only...

    Always liked Aristos... for a while I actively looked for the original model, I wanted a STOCK one. Every single one in that 6 month period were single turbo converted, 300kw+. Probably a reason for that though.

    Can explain some noise. One piece shafts are loud, long cylinders making a ringing sound, and also depends on thickness / material. They make a sound, and also amplify other driveline noises. I basically threw out a gearbox once, because noises that...

    replied to SR20DET coolant leak
    Coolant coming out of gearbox = welch plug behind the flywheel.

    If it's leaking from anywhere else, you'll see white residue drying literally any where else. If the only thing you can see is coolant coming out of the small relief in the...

  • If you're handing out rocker covers, I'll take one. I need to make coil pack brackets and don't want to have to lean over my engine bay to do it

    Thanks guys. Yeah it's actually getting driven 5 days a week.

    Any time I ever bitch about it, or make a neutral comment, I'm still stoked that its running an engine I built as a noob 8 years ago, which has done probably >70k km's. And...

    Not much changed Z-wise in the last few months. Work got busy towards the end of the year as my role changed, and the family battle wagon got written off in December. That took some leg work to replace, and fuckload of shuffling around in the mean time....

    They're buying up NA Supras for 30k+ USD, because RHD/JDM. P platers here don't have a chance.

    But being able to buy a GTR? That's buying a part of Paul Walker. This is the one way a Seppo can get close to their god....

    You idiot, you forgot that the third time you re-seal the box you're meant to run out of sealant.

    Good effort. At least you didn't have it in car and driving before finding out you put a washer on the wrong side of a circlip.

  • Most engines that have anything oil controlled (VCT) and onwards only want to run on the specified oil, anything else causes problems with sensors and actuators etc. The oldschool logic of "its a bit worn/burning oil, I better put thicker stuff...
