  1. Also note that non abs boosters are thinner than abs boosters, in an S14 anyway. The non abs one is 255mm diameter and 75mm between mounting faces - this is a single diaphragm booster. The abs one is 230mm diameter and 115mm between mounting faces - I believe this is dual diaphragm. http://www.nissansilvia.com/forums/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_rel_module=post&attach_id=467933
  2. I'm running a booster off an old turbo exa. It's 8" diameter if I remember correctly. One of them might fit. It's a significant decrease in cross sectional area compared to the factory 10" though so still expect to need a bit of pedal pressure unless running grabby pads.
  3. Advice/Opinions on Respray

    Cheers guys. And not one person telling me I need to lower the car! n0nac-S15, I will look into paint protection, but the car spends 99% of its life sitting in a garage so a wax every now and then will probably suffice.
  4. S15 Brake Booster Options

    Attached is a picture of a non abs booster (left) and an abs booster (right) out of an S14. The non abs one is 255mm diameter and 75mm between mounting faces - this is a single diaphragm booster. The abs one is 230mm diameter and 115mm between mounting faces - I believe this is dual diaphragm.
  5. Bushing kit

    Sure did. It is difficult to get a good layer as when you slide the steel tube inside the poly it wipes most of the grease off as they are so tight. Ps I have a set of S14 rear arms and knuckles complete with superpro bushes here if anyone is interested 😛
  6. Bushing kit

    I disagree with putting poly bushes in moving suspension components, especially throughout the S series rear end with so many arms. You need a bush that won't bind up to allow the shocks/springs to do their job properly. I had superpro bushes in the rear of my S14, and with the car jacked up and the wheels, coilover and swaybar removed the suspension was near impossible to move. After talking to MCA I have recently gone back to factory rubber bushes, with the intention of going sphericals eventually. I can't comment on whether the car feels better now as I upgraded from HSDs to MCAs at the same time.
  7. You're right, they are very simple. I went with cheap ebay ones and they're fine. Having said that I got the sizing wrong the first time and then got sent the wrong ones the second time. Third time I got the right ones 😛 What ID and OD are you after? I may be able to help.
  8. Budget CA S13 Track Car - Upgrades time...

    Haha. I too was planning on doing it myself, I bought all the available shims from nissan to get the backlash correct and everything. But after talking to a mechanic mate, he suggested I take it to a specialised gearbox and diff mob. He said it's a nightmare. You need a spreader to pull the housing apart to get the shims in, if you try and tap them in they shatter. Then there is getting the preload on the pinion correct and getting the gears to mesh correctly using blue dye and a dial indicator etc. I understand it is quite involved and required specialised tools.

    Are you planning on assembling the diff yourself?
  10. Budget CA S13 Track Car - Upgrades time...

    I've never rated A1RMs. I had a mate chew through a basically new pair of fronts from one track day in his FD RX7. I realise you're trying to do things on a budget.I run Winmax W5s, and although expensive I find them great. They wear very well and don't appear to eat rotors either.

    What pads are you going with?
  12. Budget CA S13 Track Car - Upgrades time...

    Varvs beleive you must have bought dba not rda? They are world's apart!
  13. Budget CA S13 Track Car - Upgrades time...

    You did turn down the rotors and pads I offered to you when you bought the calipers
  14. 4 pots are the standard brakes. Fronts use a flare nut, rears use a banjo bolt. R33s use flare nuts for both front and rear. If the caliper has a machined flat face around the tapped hole then you can use a banjo bolt setup.
