WHATS NEW WITH YOUR CAR ? ? #2

Recommended Posts

I've finally found a workshop that can rebuild my 6 speed!. There at Coopers Plains and called Precision Gearbox which I've dropped the box off to. The owner reckons that It should be a pretty straightforward rebuild to get it rebuilt back to factory specs as new so I'm very hopefull :). Will let you guys know how it goes when I get the box back. I've also got a new Nismo Super Coppermix clutch kit on order from Streeter in Japan!

Yeah I saw your post earlier. Sad to see it go man but yeah, you need to work on the Sil. :D. Great price for anyone looking for a clean track ready 180!

Well i'm home most days for inspection. Probably not a good idea for a daily but it's a competitive package for the budget racer/drifter.

The bearings and other gear have already arrived from Japan so were just waiting on the selector fork which has an ETA of 21 working days lol. All good tho :P he reckons the whole rebuild is gonna cost $1250. On a side note, I got my clutch today from Streeter, looks mint as. I'll post up some pics tomorrow!

^^ nice.

 

On my end of the fence, my rear turbo has died on the FD. I was just finalising all the bits for roadworthy and then, blehhh oil leaking all over. Now trying to source a 2nd hand pair of stock twins :( probably another $1k or so I reckon. Bummer

Engine swap will be done in no time Anthony :). You most definitely work quick!

 

Picked up my rebuilt gearbox and got a mate of mine to install it in the S15 along with my new Nismo clutch yesterday. Picked it up and took it for a drive and all I can say is wow, the gearbox feels like brand new! would definitely recommend Precision Gearbox, they did an awesome job! Every gear is smooth as and there are no crazy noises coming from the box. The Nismo clutch is insane, Its engagement is awesome and feels great to drive with. The clutch does make some funny sounds between 2500-3000 rpm at about 80km/h but the manual says its normal for these clutches lol.

 

Oh yeah, my mate that put the gearbox and stuff in forgot to attach the gearbox breather hose (I'm assuming its because it's a lot easier to get the gearbox back into the car without it) Do I really need to put it back on and attach it to one of the bell housing bolts up top? or can I just put a hose on the breather hole and cable tie it down somewhere? I really don't want to have to take the gearbox out again lol.

How much did that set you back at the end, Steve?

Was it the same as was quoted at the start?

Looking to fix mine in the near future. Typical crunchy 5speed with lightweight shockproof to mask its shortcomings :(

Steve I get a odd noise on decel in 4th and 3rd with my coppermix and so does a friend always thought it was a tail shaft thing but I'll find that part out this morning when everything goes back in as for the breather yes you need it dude but the gearbox won't have to come back out. You have small hands!! That or put a jack under the gearbox and lower it down a little bit and use a ratchet ring spanner to do up the bold on the breather hook

Thank f**k lol. You reckon it will matter if I drive it for a few days without the breather? Untill I can get the hose back off him? Can't see myself driving through any swamps.

Should be fine, i'd put it back on though. You'll need to angle the back of the box down and get a socket and extensions to undo the bolt, then put the breather bracket on, then re-tighten the bolt. There's a good chance if you're tilting the box back you'll lose fluid out the back so keep that in mind.
