  1. hey guys the car has clicked over 30 grand and its time to do the 'box oil. ive read all the threads about motul vs redline etc etc, but have been a bit confused as ppl have been saying certain oils will only work properly under 'hard driving' etc this s15 is a daily driver and rarely sees the angry side of 4or 5 grand. basically its treated like a baby. i was wondering which aftermarket gear oil would be most beneficial for an unmodified s15 thats sees little to no hard use?? as we all know 1st to 2nd is a bit notchy and id love to be able to improve this thanks!
  2. hey guys im a bit put off pods nowdays due to the hot air tendencies and inability to wash ur engine without piss-farting around covering the pod up...and then there is the inability to use a FMIC if u have a pod...i also find many 'heat shields' look tacky and very backyard so im wondering just how effective the stock airbox can be? APS make a neat looking duct that bolts onto the side of the box and sucks air from the front 1/4 panel....in addition to the stock snorkel. this makes a HUGE difference to air source and removes the restriction that JUST having the stock snorkel has. (see below) so basically if derestricted such as with the APS secondary duct, and with a good quality K&N etc filter, is the stock airbox just as efficient and free-flowing as a PAWD? discuss
  3. This is how to run a jail

    in jail...youre the pie
  4. whats your point? legality is based on stock power, and how "easy" it is to make 500hp with an engine is totally subjective.

    look, who hasnt at one time or another? perfectly hygenic compared to drinking sadelaide water
  6. S15 are legal on P's as far as 125kw per tonne goes unless like a good wine, S15s get better with age and develop more power?
  7. Go the Victory

    a less original come back i cant recall seeing. back to the drawing board. you do have drawing boards in adelaide dont you?
  8. were does everyone park in the city

    actually its part of ur salary. nope....have same base salary as other similar-level employees at work however due to needing vehicle for my day to day duties, i get a swipe card ditto. wilson parking platinum card, park any at of their carparks for free (i.e. my company pays) or at the RACV club for city club member rates ($5) free central melb parking is the business....i love my job

    only if you're a soccer fan, which i'm not. so no, it doesn't hurt mate. your water tastes like arse.

    yes but my point was that, within reason, you CAN sneak one or two somewhat 'cheeky' mods in, without raising an eyebrow. a car dragging its ar*e along the ground with 200kg of cheap fibreglass kit dangling down to the road isnt the right way to go about it.. haha, interesting...i like it! about time! thankyou exactly i rather enjoy your posts, they display maturity and a grip on the realities of modified car ownership....keep it up

    quite simple more environmentally friendly. 2 stroke is being phased out rather quickly around the globe, and professional motocross and supercross fields are more or less 100% 4 strokes nowadays. 4 strokes also benefit from massive torque, i loved my last bike (05 CRF250R)

    oh ive seen it often 2 weekends ago i was in portsea and saw several commos getting the red hot poker up the arse its not just imports. in any case, the "why me and not him??" argument holds no water worry about yourself

    whats illegal?
  16. Hoon Protest

    so what youre suggesting is you deserve to fly in the face of ADR laws and modify your car as you wish, without any regard for relevant laws governing these modifications? okkkkkkkkkk............. actually the laws are just rules written down and enforced. whether you defy them and put yourself out of pocket is entirely up to you! dont be so melodramatic.....if you wanna play, you gotta pay. if you can afford thousands for mods, you can afford the odd fine/canary here or there. again, you do realise you as a modified car driver are a tiny minority, who society in general really doesnt give a stuff about?

    car doesnt have to be illegal to be nice though mate say you had an S15 you could -put 18x7.5 rims on it -lower it slightly (keeping it 100mm off the deck) -put a reasonable exhaust on it that is under 90db -do a FMIC -do a couple of stealth mods to the airbox (and hence having 'one' intake mod) -get the stock ECU rechipped (invsible) what would be wrong with that as a street car? the problem for the import nuts is the car HAS to have illegally sized rims, with a loud exhaust, and be dragging its arse along the ground, and have a billion ECU bits and pieces littered over the dash its not THAT HARD to comply with ADR laws....theres really no excuse for being defected. getting done for trivial things like washer bottles and tyre pressure, well, thats just laughable. check your tyres regularly and make sure the washer bottle is full not hard!

    you sir, are a twit what impact do you think a few hundred import driving IT workers is likely to have on the law? id say, not only would you achieve nothing, youd just draw more negative attn onto yourselves do you honestly think some half arsed march in the city is going to force parliament to ease up road laws...for the pleasure of an overwhelming MINORITY on the roads? hate to break it to you, but the average man and woman driver in melb (99% of road users) would be quite happy to see modified cars off the road PERIOD. but, best of luck its not about easing up road laws its about giving the car ethusiasts a chance to enjoy wat they like best which is thier car and not worry about getting pulled over and canaried or EPAed because their exaughst is 2db over the limit wtf!!! i know what youre saying, but if its over its over. they gotta draw a line in the sand somewhere. FWIW i drove a fairly loud silvia for over a year which had probably 10 + defectable items on it...and got canaried once. got off very lightly. much of it is to do with drawing attention to oneself - or more the point, minimising it. and you can thank the noble park riot for setting you guys about 10 yrs further back with the cops....
