  1. S14 front brakes + r33 rear brakes

    i know this post is a few days old but for brake lines go https://au.helperformance.com they are one of very few aus made ADR approved lines and tell them what you have and they do a bolt on kit, eg s13 to r33 calipers, you can buy a pair only also. and they have the adaptors so you remove the hard metal pipe on the caliper side. for master cylinder i use a r32 gtst bm44 on exactly the same brake set up and it works well. i believe bias is the only difference, i would suggest use currant bmc before purchasing anything if your not satisfied then upgrade

  8. Which MIG ?

    The WIA welders are pretty good if your going to weld thin metals eg panel steel you need a welder to go down to low amps so you don't just blow through the panel eg 20 to 30amps the WIA 190 weldmatic looks pretty decent for light duty

    just seen this looking for inspiration to finnish my car, had to laugh and thought the best place for it is here. its for a v6 commodore.... nuff said!
  10. man with all the problems you have had with the ca motor im suprised you have not cracked the shits and just thrown the ca away and got something different, shit knows im thinking that with my ca... your persistence is commendable. and nice car all the same

  16. Project "Baller" - The quest to break 1000hp..

  17. ebay diffuser opinions?

    thats the same one i was looking at,i was thinking being that its universal just trim what you dont need an use some decent sized alloy brackets to bolt up and she'll be tight only thing is you will need to make you own brackets
  18. hey guys, i have kei office coilovers in my car an the rears are leaking really bad and i need new ones, Im just looking for pretty much direct experiences with what ever type coilovers and would you recommend them or not! thats pretty much all! the car is mainly street driven, but purpose built for track/ hill climb and a bit of drifting. rather than spending the same price on used coilovers i would rather buy new ones. these are the ones i am looking at: bc gold/br series http://cgi.ebay.com....=item230dc2e9e2 bc v1 series http://cgi.ebay.com....=item2a0d99d88e and isc n1 coilovers all have the same spring rates 8 f- 6 r (with the exception isc i can choose between 4,6,8,10,12) all have 30-32 step damper adjust (except for hsd hr has 15 damper adjust), an full height adjustable and all around the same ball park figure if you have a recomendation for another brand same ball park figure and spec's please put a link so we can see. i will be ordering one of these during the week so i am keen to know
  19. Any ca pro's able to help?

    pretty sure you need to start all nut on the manifold before you can tighten any of them ( are you refering to the intake or exhaust?)
  20. S15 (Stage 2 SR23VET power, 1st dyno video up)

    nice work man by the looks of the dyno sheet the responce would be just about instant?
  21. 4+ years endlessly changing my mind and making changes/ additions.
  22. the rear housing flange on a ca standard turbo is the same flange as any s13/14 i think s15 also but if you were to look for a s13 sr20 one with a fat style o2 sensor it will work only thing is the 3 bolt flange on the dump pipe is spun about 30' so it wont bolt onto a standard ca down pipe but shouldnt be an issue from the fact your making the rest of the exhaust and http://www.midnightmods.com.au/zen-cart/index.php dump pipes seem pretty good. 2 tips from my experience of making my own exhaust also have the rear wheels on ramps so the suspension is positioned at the equivalent ride height so you can tuck the exhaust up high as possible or a 4 poster hoist and 3 inch would be alot easier to find for purchasing...
  23. Some of my Fabrication Pics

    just wondering with the dump pipe is that just butt welded with filler rod? or do you do anything to reinforce it at the join like flare the pipe and recess one into the other? and also love your work
