  2. Nissan Terrano Addzest TV

    hey yall My cousin in NZ has just got an import Nissan Terrano and it came with i think stock Addzest TV and sat nav unit....which also controls the sterio/cd player. i know you can get the adapters from autobarn etc that get the radio freqs converted so that it adjusts the mhz so that u can listen to radio stations over here...but i want to know if we can get the TV working and receiving channels? will the converter that does the radio also do the tv? any possibility the sat nav might be able to get working also? any help in the matter will be appreciated cheers brown

  7. sub advice....a hardcore sub

    mmmmk any guru's out there? now i kno a fair bit but not that much in terms of amp brands and subs. i got a Orion HCCA 12 subby....now its massive. from a meter away it will f**k a pc monitor permanently. it asks 1200rms. dual 2 ohm voice coil. me needs an amp. and im having a whole shit load of trouble deciding or finding one. also havin trouble deciding wether to run it in series with both the vioce coils linked (so ill need a 4ohm input from mono block) or run it as seperate voice coils (so ill run two 2ohm inputs to the sub from a two channel amp) i can get any jbl amp thru work at a farkin good price. at moment im looking at a A302GTi and it should punch thru 300w a side into 2ohm...its underpowering the sub however... was lookin at these amps GTO1201.1 Sub Amp from the GTO range and A302 GTi A1201GTi however this is only 1200rms into 2ohms...and its only a 1 channel so if i run it at 4 ohms into the sub in series it will only be like 600-700rms... i dunno what jbl amp to get. anyone had experience? anyone had experience with this type of sub? basically im after reccomendations from experience or help from people who know about this kind of shit. like whats the best configuration to go with? this is the site where i am lookin at the jbl's and can get any of the amps in any of the ranges at a decent price...so im abviosly biased towars jbls because i can get em cheap cheers. i kno its a massive post lol....ah well...go nuts.
  8. sub advice....a hardcore sub

    yeah mmm... i think ill just get a couple of 10" jbls and a jbl amp...just cause i can get them really cheap and be done with that. i mean...that will give me heaps of bass in the little mazdabator. rest of cash goes towards a dirty big bridgeport....
  9. sub advice....a hardcore sub

    where u get it from keiichi2?
  10. sub advice....a hardcore sub

    any recomendations on a 1ohm mono block...? keeping in mind dont wanna spend huge ammounts of cash. tru tech is out of the question....there 1ohm blocks start at like 1500, i know its probly worth every cent...however imjust not prepared to spend that much. any any where in melb apart from raw audio i can check out u guys know of?
  11. sub advice....a hardcore sub

    cheers surreal...hmmm 1ohm may be the way tto go...with a 1ohm stable monoblock....yeas.... yeah and with the brands i dont want to go cheap as it just wont do the sub justice....so im going to be getting soemthing faily decent. however im having second thoughts now....the more research i do the more i find out i have to spend...better of saving it for the rotor me thinks. bigger battery, alternator etc etc...
  12. sub advice....a hardcore sub

    sr180 - tell me how it will become a 1ohm load? i dont think it is possible? thanks for ur input everyone. sounds like Nav2k is the man to speak to....
  13. these pumps are designed to run at a full 14v current, a 180sx or silvia has a relay in the fuel pumps ground wiring that puts the stock pumps into a "cruise" mode that only supplies the pump with around 10v and then when u floor it, it opens up and u get something like 12.5v. so to all those installing them on their 180's or sils. i had one of these exact pumps on my sr 180. u need to bypass the stock ground and then re ground them yourself for them to work at full potential. when i first installed my walbro it was a litle differnce..and hardly made anynoise. them when i regraounded it, it made an even bigger performance difference and the pump became louder. more of a constant wirring noise whichconfirmed its now working at its full potential. ifany one stll doesnt understand pm me. just something i thought buyers should know.
  14. mmm that is very handy to know. what about r30 skylines? will s13 or 32 covers fit em? with tops changed?

    mines gone after u suggested it to me gtspec. i rekon if phunkys running a big fvckoff top mount with out it and had no probs then i rekon stock will be fine
  16. rotary?

    rotas are sick...thats waht my next project will be. always wanted one....now i will have one.
  17. ok so we did timing on my sr20 180 today. found out it had been running about +25 deg.... TDC is the gold mark. so we set it at +15 BTDC which is stock. BTW i have cat back and pod thats it for now....no boost controller. i have been running about 11psi on my car and i thought it was because of the catback in pod...i knew it was a bit high but i had heard of similar reports so i just left it. my car was pretty quick running that boost. now we did timing this arvo, and its at +15deg (stock) what its meant to be at. and my car has droped to 7psi and it feels slow as sh*t.... there are hesitations (flat spots) and there is lag between gear changes and before boost which i never had before. and u cant even hear the turbo spool or suck air in anymore... whats causeing this? my car feels slow and sh*t and unresponsive now. and would having my timing set so high increase the boost???? matt. brownbrowneye38144.8771412037
  18. What Fuel Pump is in my S13?

    is that sunlight on ur hand and on the fuel pump? god damn....
  19. adjusting door strikers

    bust out the hammer and go for it. i fixed mine myself. not very hard....easier if u have two people/even three is better, to hold the door while u beat the pin in and out, as its a bit of a maggot to get free.
  20. hey yealll. im trying to do my timing on my sr, 180, and i know to disconnect TPS and then start car and rev to 3000 or so a few times then let it settle... my car settles to about 2000rpm and wont go down any further. ive tried reving it to 5000rpm a few times and then lettle it settle....but everytime it doesnt settle to anything below about 2000rpm. mmm and i cant see shit obviosly when im using the gun and trying to see the markers....as its going too fast. have i done something wrong? missed something... if i leave the TPS connected and then check my timing then i can see exactly where it is and all the markers and its perfect. but i have been told from heaps of people and read that to properly change ur timing u need to disconnect TPS.... im stuck...
  21. tuning a mines ecu

    mmm as far as i know u dont need ecu remap for a fuel pump. definetly for a AFM tho. u have a mines ecu obviosly? run round all the workshops in ur area and ask them....the simplest way.
  22. *firetruck* that tell him to send it back!!! 120 bucks......god damn u coulda had mine for nothin....i got 3 of em...
  23. What tyre pressure should I use?

    mmm lower pressure increases the ammount of tire on road....so ud think that havin em lower on front would give u more grip....but then again the steering feels mega ghey and sloppy when my fronts are low...so i never run low pressure. and backs...drag cars run *firetruck* all psi in rears to get more grip... but my car aint a drag car...so i run same as fronts...or what ever my tire manufacturer tells me to run....
  24. Short Shift Kits
