Title: What did you do to your car this weekend
Post by: coleSR20 on 27 September, 2010, 02:22:07 PM
Well since these forums are abit quieter then others I visit, thought I would steal a popular thread idea from another forum I am a member of!!!

What do you do to your car this weekend :)

Myself?

Got some 6 X 9's an installed them, took my time and ran the cables from back of headdeck down under the carpet all the way to the back seat then into the boot and up to speaker :) Installed a new Head-deck, finally fixed the electronics on the N15's driver door, Fixed the stupid loose terminals on battery.

Last 3 weekends have been car weekends for me! The weekend just gone was a simple wash of both the pulsar and the wrx. The weekend before that the wrx scored a walbro fuel pump and a whiteline sway bar, the weekend before that Darryl and I built a down pipe for it (mostly Darryl... lol).

This coming weekend I plan to drive it!

Brayden & I gave our baby a good scrub this weekend, really needs a wax, might just get lucky for National meet & if I am feeling really nice might even clean some of the crap out of it.

I finally replaced the relay box for my drivers side window and installed some nice 6.5 speakers - had to get a little handy with the angle grinder and tin snips to make them fit under the standard door cards. And not quite the weekend but today went for a warrant on the P10. Bit of a list to get sorted

1.ABS light on (because ABS is unpligged due toi it shorting somewhere)
2. Leaking power steering needing sorting
3. Rear pads to be changed
4. Drivers side upper arm to be replaced
5. Both front brakes lines to be replaced
6. Passenger rear tyre some flat spots
7. Passenger side front tyre - worn on inner shoulder

Ah well.. The poor thing doesn't get much love..

great idea for a thread man. This will be hugely popular.

As pingu said spent much of the weekend fabricating a custom gauge mount in the centre console. Looks awesome and will look mean when fully wired up. Also reset headunit and amp so now bass goes nuts :D

And on sunday went i.c.e shopping for leighs daily. Got a mean headunit. Man now i want one!

Stuff done recently for the nats,  4 new bridgestone MY01 tyres, repair & repaint mags,  Znoelli front brake rotors, Lucas(TRW) front & rear pads, new spark plugs, new fuel filter, walbro fuel pump, 2nd hand HT leads, manual instrument cluster internals swap, oil temp gauge, new clutch, wheel alignment, S15 steering wheel & air-bag, genuine HID headlights ( unlikely to fit b4 nats )
brake ducting, inflated & balanced racing wheels/tyres.

 Think that's about it.

Lots of dreaming about wining lotto & building the ultimate Primera.  ( WHNP11 of course )

Pretty pleased with what I've done so far, considering I had a very small budget to work with.

Bendix HD brake pads installed and run in, semi slicks fitted to front tyres only (could only afford the two), new engine oil, oil filter, gearbox oil and brake fluid. Also dropped the sump off and cleaned sump, oil pick up and baffle, refitted with new gasket sealant before new oil went in.

Car seems to be much happier and quieter after the small amount of work I have done.

Looking forward to seeing how long it'll last at track day.

I went out and got some trans fluid and grease so I can take the rack out and rebuild it, I also designed a 2 channel VVL controller and a 2 stage shift light (with flasher) - so went out and got the components for that, so I can breadboard it up tonight, test, adjust, make a PCB then assemble.

Cracked a 200.7 with a stock de and some sticky tyres. Stoked with this time but want a 1.58 with some better pads and suspension. Very jealous of Andy's stripped out p10, got to take it for a squirt and am now bitterly dissapointed with mine... sigh.

Hey NOGRIP  at least that vibration has gone. ;)

Replaced rear pads, replaced front brake hoses (got a pair or near new ones from a P10 at Avondale Pick a Part for $12 - score ) and bled the brake system.. Just some cleaning of power steering (to confirm if there is a leak) and a new front tyre and I can finally get warrant..

Looking forward to getting O2 sensor fitted in the next few days too so I can hopefully claw back some fuel economy.

This weekend I changed my oil and the front left control arm because it was totally F*****!! lol.

And it wasn't the quickest of jobs as the bracket holding it to the chassis had to be removed also.

Also blackened my entire interior with silicone spray and vacuumed inside thoroughly.

And with Willis's help tinted the front windows. Now just need to do the rears and boot.

Washed my car for the first time in 6 months (at least), decided to spend some time in the future tidying up the paint and panel on it.

Also used my new realtime tuning gear for the 1st time on Scotts Turbo T4, awesome once we worked out the maf was dirty and causing the ecu to not see load and add fuel.

Interesting with his car, the fuel pump was getting 8v with the pump running under load, so a HD wire and relay helped.

I did a compression test and found my car has 270psi on all 4 cylinders which is stupidly high but then pauls tester looks like its from the 70's

I also found that it has a 2002 ecu in it which supposedly has better maps for improved throttle response and midrange torque

last weekend i had the lip put on :)

nothing extremely fast, first time racing and my quickest run was a 14.6 engine's pretty much standard other than exhaust, pod filter and bov, running standard boost and sidemount still lol oh and with stretched tires and heaps of camber :D so the time should go down a little with a better set up

Had a serious wobble going on when I got up past 100kmh, so changed over my 2 left wheels to even out the tread depths of my front tryes. When I took the tyres off I noticed that they are worn more on 1 half of the tyre which was most likely due to under inflation. Took the car for a spin after changing them over thou and it rides as smooth as a babys bum!

Pretty sure thats more likely to be camber or mis alignment wear bro... Under/over inflation will wear the inner/outer edges of the tire respectively... Pretty sure it wont wear out just one side though...

99.5% of the time is is actually excessive toe in or toe out that causes the wear on one side only... get off for an alignment...

Post by: R3SPCT on 02 December, 2010, 02:59:27 PM
All reg's are rising rate, including stock. When on a turbo car the vac line makes the pressure rise with boost, so the pressure in the intake doesn't slow the fuel flow down. There are some reg's that have a different ratio of boost to pressure, but there are usually old school ones to help supply more fuel with bolt on turbo's and no programable fuel management.

1) Cam Cover seals.
2) Engine and bay degrease.
3) Gearbox mount - strip paint, seal, prime, paint.
4) Fuel Filter + Sparkplugs.
5) Strip paint and prep mags for new color.
6) Find another solenoid as one is leaking a bit.
7) De-clutter some of the engine bay.

and whatever else I can think of doing.

I found a boost leak, wound the boost up a bit, and went out and did some tuning with James driving, so i could play with my new software and emulators.  Finally got the boost up to 1 bar, think i need another solenoid for the boost controller as it cant bleed enough off to raise the boost.

Gave Sarahs car a quick retune in the hope of getting her better fuel economy too.

Got my VE head out and took the intake and such off it, took the valve cover off and it looks all good.  Wondering if i should tidy things up a bit with my die grinder before putting it on.

I already had a 3" 90 degree bend and I bought the one you see in the guard from Super Cheap, it was $45 from memory. It's not stainless though, it's alloy. Other than being quite thin it looks to be reasonably well made.

Repaired the starter on our Serena, checked the solenoid 1st, but still no go, Greg told me its the brushes, so $20 later and a hours work and its working again.  At least the van being 4wd, there is no need to jack it up to get under and remove the starter.

Started stripping the engine bay so it can be painted in a nice gloss black, and clean up and re-paint the battery tray - damn battery acid.

Now while removing a few things I noticed a stain on the gearbox - shure enough I have to get a new slave cylinder  >:(

Also does anyone know if the front bumpstops can be replaced seperatly from the strut?  Mine are torn in half and was noticed at a wof check (as a warning but want to replace them).

Alrighty, well some people will know that I swapped my VZR for Vince's MX5 and what was going to be just a "clean it and drive it" quickly turned into something silly. After driving it around for a day it was clear some things were going to need doing and I figured I'd just get the bulk of them all done at once. So over the past week I replaced the leads, alternator, belts, radiator hoses, thermostat and flushed all the cooling system, put a new VF11 turbo from a GTR Familia on it and now am in the process of modifying everything around it to suit.

Here's the car
(https://primeracarclub.co.nz/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv190%2Fpunkoutnz%2F184749_10150096344407015_711017014_6789721_1459415_n.jpg&hash=7421409944db2b4da10655cddcb9333b)

Quickly found the factory wastegate setup wasn't going to fit between turbo and head, so external it is!
(https://primeracarclub.co.nz/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv190%2Fpunkoutnz%2F189547_10150100488117015_711017014_6829761_200438_n.jpg&hash=f447639c85a05e291a975f90f2fd174f)

Here's the engine bay after half a tidy up with bits dummy fitted back in place, still some work to do before things will fit together.
(https://primeracarclub.co.nz/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv190%2Fpunkoutnz%2F199207_10150101277047015_711017014_6837874_2587911_n.jpg&hash=fc9f1da32eeba9c39120cc4a7cdf09fc)

So gotta move the wastegate to another location seeing that wont fit where it is, mod the IC piping, replace some of the vacuum lines that are split, plumb up the oil feed and return, etc etc.

Much work to be done yet!

It's racer :P. And it's going on mum's car so it can be Gran Racer ;). The HELC4T plates will go on it. Yeah Vince that pipe is ages long! I'm going to see if I can run it slightly differently but I don't think there's much room for changes on that front. If nothing else it's certainly giving me something to sink my teeth into and have a bit of fun with for the next few weeks getting things how I want them :D. Plumbing the external back by the way, just incase anyone expects otherwise :P

Title: Re: What did you do to your car this weekend
Post by: punkoutnz on 08 March, 2011, 03:47:14 PM
Haha, oh only one of those remotes is for that head deck, the stereo that came with that car had one as well and when I put it in the glove box I couldn't remember which one was which! So I didn't want to throw the wrong one out, forgot to mention that when I gave you the car, haha. And that beeping thing also controls the automatic interior light (when you take the key out the light turns on). I found that feature much handier than not having a beep so I left it in but that's entirely up to you :D. It's a piece of cake to undo.
Title: Re: What did you do to your car this weekend
Post by: kiwicon on 08 March, 2011, 04:04:50 PM
strange as both the remotes work, well noise level anyway... hmmm really, might have to go revisit that plug then, never even noticed the interior light. did notice that the seatbelt light flicks sometimes when its plugged in..
Title: Re: What did you do to your car this weekend
Post by: punkoutnz on 08 March, 2011, 04:09:06 PM
I had the seatbelt light flash for me for a couple of days about 2 years ago... Never did it since. Weird that it'd come up now! See if it goes away I guess, I think it lasted 2, maybe 3 days when it did it for me. I never tested the other remote cos the battery was flat but it'd be wicked if they both work!

Yeah same stud pattern but I think the offsets different for FWD

I like the ones that go right out to the edge of the rim, makes it look bigger and I'll be staying with 17" cause I have rubber thats only 6mths old allround and it rides hard engough without going to 18"s and 40 profile tyres

Yeh i burnt mine half out, no more clutch/hand brake starts for me! - i think with the chromoly flywheel and heavy pressure plate it didn't like it... :( i am used to the stock clutch taking that sort of abuse lol.


Dissapointing number too considering..but my hand brake is sticking so could have caused major issues..

Skyline decided to destroy the bearing inside the power steering pump this morning. Made a hell of a noise then fluid started pouring out of it all over my driveway.
So spent the afternoon getting it out and a low $6.20 and 4 hours later, it's all back together and running very nicely again.

Yeah no worries Mike, I could hear it getting worse and worse for a couple of days, and a couple of spots of oil on the driveway each morning. Suprised the WOF guy at AA overlooked it..

But it's all sweet as now, doesn't spill a drip and no odd noises anymore. Power steering feels good now as well. Plus now it's done I shouldn't have to worry about it for a while now. Was cheap as anyway and was fun to muck around with the car for the afternoon.

Those tyres on it are pretty damn grippy, way better then what I was expecting! Have spoken to the dismantlers here today, as they just got in a manual box from an R31, just waiting to hear back from them with prices etc.

Got a new P10 as a daily, needs some work, but what you expect for 250?

Auto only has 1st and 2nd, im thinking its poked not worth trying to repair unless someone knows better.

So ive been getting it ready for a WOF, put a set of P11 15" alloys on it i had for the Serena (Serena now has p10 14's on it ;) )

Replaced both front top arms

Swapped dizzy for one that doesnt rattle

New plugs

New wiper blades

New electric aerial mast ($38 :) )


Pulled stereo out, one wire for one of the rear speakers was not connected,  and one of the front door speakers was dead, so just replaced it with a old one thats torn to shreads for now, no bass, but makes enough treble to be listenable.  The head unit is awesome!  Its a tape Pioneer, but has heaps of audio controls and has great sound.  Also has a Cd stacker plug on the back, and im sure i kept my old stacker from the old NXR, so might just throw that in for giggles and buy some cd's lol. 

Greg (NoGrip) has a p10 he is taking a auto out of at some stage, so i'll just drive it local for now.  Want to keep it auto as its a daily driver.  Has a towbar, which is cool, so will prob take the one of R3spct at some stage.

I got tired of my daily only being able to do 80kph, cheapest and quickest option was a manual box

.Had a bunch of box parts, and pickapart supplied the rest of the bits for under 200 including new gear oil from repco.

I have to say its been a while since ive had a one wheel drive car with no trac control, it was hard work in the rain today

fitted a new electric aerial mast too.

Sigh.. it was the cheapest clutch around for a DE.. no where near strong enough for a 2 litre VE combined with me as the driver.  The weird thing is the riviets look like they fell out.. they arent snapped or anything... the springs then all just fell out as the two halves of the centre plates just seperated.. from there I had a centre cog of the clutch disk spinning round on its own... not too effective really...

As for darryls question about how it drives... its actually really easy... some shuddering when trying to gently engage... and being a cable clutch its a bit of a harder pedel feel.. got into the wagon thats hydraulic and fitted with a full face exedy hjeavy duty... nearly put my foot through the floor pushing too hard and then nearly stalled engaging too quick lol.
The pulsar one is an on or off clutch.. should be wicked for the turbo engine.

Hahaha well p10 rear springs fit either way up unlike fronts and since i've never put them in before without the help of a mechanic i just guessed at what way they should in. Didn't notice any difference in ride quality with them wrong way up but now that it's rectified it just ride a lot better.

Got the reverse lights working in my daily, didnt get around to it when i did my manual conversion.  Also took the boot lock out as neither of the keys that came with the car worked, took it apart and put the ignition key in and profiled it to the key, so now i can open the boot with a key. 

I also put Fuji VE headers on a while ago, but they were very short secondaries, it made it rev to 7500 and sounded great, but lost a lot of mid range/bottom end power, so swapped back for stockers.

Did a little bit on R3spct, swapped the boot lid for another with new tail lights, and took the instrument cluster out to try and figure out how to fit a UKGT clock/tacho into it.  The plugs are the same, but the wiring looks totally different, so cant just swap the whole cluster, and the odo was miles off mine anyway.

IS that hard to do? My key doesn't work in my door lol - maybe too hard basket and keep using alarm haha!

Wasnt too hard, prob means there are 2 keys that will work now, i think, but at least i can open the boot without needing to open door 1st and pull the lever. 

You need to pull the barrel apart, put the key in and grind off all the tabs that still stick up.  Its a very rangi way to do it, but works fine.  Worst part is getting the crome outer cap back on and crimped, if i was doing it again id make a tool to do this.

I pulled the rest of the electrics out of the car, ripped the engine out of the parts car, and lifted it the shell in the air to get at the underneath, well I think it was mainly cause I got a crane truck and it's fun to use haha so if any one has a engine they need pulling out, let me know! haha can't wait till I get my car back though, been sitting lonely in South Auckland for a few weeks now

well not mine but i put some money towards it. a p10 t4 manual. mate brought it for $950.
so far replacement top arms. sprayed some crc on some joints. swapped tyres front to rear. installed head unit/speakers.
was low on oil pressure so some moreys went in. injector cleaner . put some 95 in with advanced timing and a pod filter.  blew out the baffles in the muffler today with my spirited driving on a private gravel road.

even with almost bald tyres it wont step out much on gravel. goes out a little bit then grips

Not so much what I did to the car, while I was off having Sunday drinks with friends, my Dad got into the wiring of the T4, swapped it over from the other car, gonna do the engine loom during the week and that will finish the wiring up, apart from wiring in keyless entry.

To P10:
Pushed back 20cm to pull some old carpet from underneath rear wheel...


To GT-R:

Set cam timing, install 02 sensor fitting, replace air filters.

Then onto the dyno to find she would not push past .6 bar... so...

Replace airflow meters, fix boost leak on I/C hose, remove exhaust restrictor, rewire fuel pump, regap spark plugs. Might have left out a few more repairs along the way.

Got roped into helping a mate at 8am this morning to change out his clutch and brake fluid in his Mrs' P11, pretty hard to concentrate with a mega hangover! Thanks Darryl for that early morning reply, hope I didn't wake you.

I got home and started changing over the front end suspension in the 10, managed to get 2 of the lower control arms bolts into the chassis rails, then couldn't get any more in, and with the consistent showers, I gave up on that idea, but got the super lows in and also the braided brakelines.

P.S, there shouldn't be any problems using ABS hubs on a non ABS car right? There's only that sensor, so thought it wouldn't be

I managed to fit a P11ve power steer pump to a P12 20v, not a terrible job and it fitted ok.  Worst part was getting the old pump out and trying to drain the old power steer fluid.

Replaced the shocks/springs in the VZR with a full set of second hand Nismo damper adjust and Nismo springs.  Tried to drive out the garage but car wouldn't move.  After thorough investigation found the drivers side outer CV joint had somehow come apart as the shaft had come out of the knukle.  Fixed that up and all good now.  Now rides slightly higher which is a good thing as we live up a gravel road.  Also swapped the original bumper back on as the modded Autech one was just too low and plowing gravel isn't fun!
Started replacing some of the smaller nut/bolts/washers around the front (ones that needed removing to do the shocks etc) with stainless steel versions, slightly heavier but no more rusted up bolts.

Started pulling PUFF apart 2 replace the LH axle seal, RH inner CV boot, leaky sump & leaky turbo oil feed line.

Snapped 2 (cheap) power bars trying to undo the RH axle nut. Ended up pulling both complete front hubs & axles out, will take them 2 wk on monday and rattle the nuts off. Snap on rattle gun FTW.

Removed the sump, leaky oil return pipe needs re-welding.

Removed 1/2 of the turbo oil feed line, cant see where its leaking, hopefully I can get it pressure tested or else I will replace it.

I use some old metal, thick walled water (I think) pipe.  It's ID is a bit larger than the OD of the powerbar and about 4 metres long.  Haven't found a nut yet that I haven't been able to take off.  Leverage FTW!!!  ;D

Re-made the seat belt anchor for the second time after eye-balling one time and cutting one time-fail. Cert guy wasn't happy with the welded on tang by bride so had to make a sandwich plate. On the positive side he was happy with my brakes, suspension, tyres and engine! I went with him on the drive and he came very close to getting a ticket on the run-up for the brake test... Next week when he is back it will get its cert plate then WOF time and then fun time ;D. Also replaced the drive belts on the daily so it passed it's WOF.

Yeah was on the way back, after going through some road works at Taupiri, clicked the trusty button to drop a gear, then when clicked again it wouldnt drop revs, and would go into nuetral when I took my foot off the gas. So was revving at 3k rpm for 15 minutes, which wasn't that nice on the gas  :o

Apprently they are adjustable by circlip? Might have to take them back out and have a play around, or if anyone knows how to do this that could let me know? Feel awesome to drive though! Super solid!

So I'm the newbie here :)

I've got a p11 Primera which has been converted to manual from the infamous CVT which I have recently bought.  However, the wiring side of things hasn't been sorted out.  Waiting on my membership to be processed, then I'm going to try sort that problem with the 'members only' info.  Keen to learn!

Anyway... I gave it an oil change, changed the distributor shaft seal (It was leaking oil), removed a sub from the previous owner, cleaned my MAF and reset the ECU.  I had a go at pulling my dash apart to get to my ECU, but got distracted by the thunder & lightning, and subsequently ran out of time :D

Starting small...

Easy -- unplug, unscrew (2 screws on the P11), gently lift out, spray filaments with CRC CO Contact Cleaner or an equivalent "no residue" electronics cleaner until clean.  I understand the filaments are delicate so better not to touch them with anything to clean.  Allow to dry.  Reinsert and tighten down screws.  Re-attach plug (while it's undone, may as well clean those contacts too!).  Done!

hmmm, i know what you mean, keeps it a sleeper tho.
The front bumper is actually wide enough to match up with the skirts, its just the lines are'nt continuous.
At least it has the eyelids and fog lights to smarten up the front, and working on a little under lip detail!

  Thats alright Rusty I'm thicker skinned than that, been all though that trauma when I first joined back about 6 years ago whan most of the club had P10's. The power to weight ratio of the P10 is way superior to the modern car  and all its armour (Air bags, ABS, side intrusion, etc)
The name was tongue and cheek fun, and not designed to be arrogant, I was the first P12 here so took alot of missiles in the early days.

my mate, installed my new sony head-unit today! :) looks like it's meant to be in there, i.e. factory look! :) also found the front passenger side speaker has given up the ghost! :( will hopefully, be up-grading the front speakers asap! :)

a BIG thank-you to my mate Chris (car audio specialist), and to cam from the club, who sold me the cd player! :)

If that's the one between the MAF and the throttle body, put it back on.  You lose midrange without it and don't gain anything in return.

My car was like this when I got it almost 2 years ago and have always wondered why the throttle was so sensitive coming off idle. After reading more_fasterer's comment, I grabbed the box from another car, and its made it so much easier to drive at low speeds. No more jolting back/forth for the passengers :P Low-mid range power seems to have come back too.

EDIT: Today I stopped my windscreen wipers from screeching like they were. The small shafts the wipers bolt to were rusted and dry. Took them apart, cleaned them and regreased them, put them back together and now theyre mint :D

If you dont know its a JZX100 Chaser Tourer S. And no its not turbo.

I needed a more practical car with potential to modify if the bug bites again so this is it. 2JZ will slot straight in and yes with 10k worth of overnight parts from Japan it will run 10s...lol

Since I cant keep two cars if anyones interested in an N14 GTI with sr20ve....give me a shout....

Saw your car at Nizfest, very well kept.

You would be amazed the difference it will make if you pull the exhaust manifold shield off, clean it and give it a good coat of silver heat proof paint. Your engine bay will shine out. You may even be able to paint it in place without taking it off. Do try it.

...and it looks so much better. Nissan are such munters about the plugs though. They're all slightly different so they don't work between pfl/fl. I can understand the headlight one being different because it's a completely different setup, but the indicator/park light just have the tab on the other side.

And put in a K&N pod:

Crud, I'd read reviews for the other assurance tyre (not the fuel max)... I've just read a few now and they were not too complimentary especially about tread wear :/ but many of them were like "one tire wore down" which to me speaks of poor alignment or inflation rather than the tire.  Guess I'll see.  Too late to take them back now :(

The tyres are comfortable enough to drive on and aren't dangerous per se in the wet (like supercats for example  :o ), but just are definately not a performance tyre.  I think they sell them as 'touring tyres' which are hard wearing, and are OK but only OK as a performance tyre.

I guess the 'fuel max' version will be harder, thus harder wearing but also less grippy.  Try them out and see how you go.  I could be totally wrong  :)

Well they are not priced like performance tyres, and are not directional, so I don't expect them to be performance tyres ;)  I just hope they are a lot better than the triangles which, despite plenty of tread, were like driving on an ice rink in the wet.

I'm headed to Hamilton on Friday, and rain is forecast, so I'll provide some feedback.

Ok...just my eperience but a bit of boost makes for a far better road car.
Remember that 16ve cams gain you 5wkw over stock and bigger cams even with THoUSANDS spent net another 20-30 wow. A rotary muffler will get you 60-80wkw and a torque curve that you can use on road legally many more times...

Just 2cents from a guy who went down the same road your on a few years ago :)

Just used a full can of Nulon Carb Cleaner on my intake this morning.

Pulled of the IACV, pulled it apart and gave it a good scrub.
Then, pulled off the throttle body and gave that a good scrub too (Never thought it could be so dirty!)
Pulled out the MAF, gave that a good squirt with some contact cleaner and did the re-grounding mod for the MAF plug.
After all that, I moved onto the TPS and found that it was only reading .30v at closed throttle.. Adjusted it to .45v where it should be (I think?) and now she's reading 4.40v at full open throttle.. Time for a new TPS I think..

After a little adjustment to air bypass screw on the IACV unit, she idles at 750rpm like never before.
Acceleration feels so much smoother, and really feels like it breathes a little better with a clean TB..


Definitely recommend these things be done!  ;D

I removed the VE and gearbox from the P10, separated them to send the 4.4:1 box down to Ham in Christchurch and had a few beers inbetween. Also removed the Nolathane bushes which will be fitted to the N15 :)

Tomorrow I may get an engine stand, pull the clutch & flywheel off and bolt that engine to the stand for cleaning, prior to stripping it for rebuild :)

The VE. Because well, because I can...and I intend to use it hard, 9000rpm. Will be fully blueprinted. IE balanced crank, rods, N1 pistons, N1 or better cams, head flowed, Xessive intake etc etc.
Been hammering these VE engines for 10 years now and its time I built one with what has been learned over that time and the right people are ready to make sur I dont stuff it up!

well ive been on study break so finally got to chuck a bit more time at the P10 (as if i havent spent enough time on it anyway :P)
Painted my TE kit and installed (just need to attach sideskirts)
 partially diagnosed/fixed boost drop issue
Fixed alternator light problem
New Wastegate spring ordered
Fixed leaking injectors and boost leaks on intake

On that note, for future reference, ID1000 (probably all ID injectors) injectors are not a direct install on a gti-r fuel rail....
The injectors are actually marginally shorter then gti-r ones, i will explain in detail what needs to be done if someones interested :P

Got the car fully groomed :D my rubbish paint job actually shines now, even though its still rough....

napman just buy one. You deal with the 2 seat thing. With a turbo they are awesome as s**t. Factory handling is amazing but a little down on power. And then there's those sunny days with the roof down. I haven't yet looked back, I love mine to bits!

Well if you're going to pressure me then I will :P Just not ready to part with the STi yet as for now it's going really well lol

Do the stock gtx setups fit up fine? Other than the turbo being backwards lol

You can bolt the turbo from the older model GTX familias with the B6t engines. Easier to get a log manifold made to fit a T25 or something though, cos the turbos are easier to get.

Ok, just finished all the running gear into the p11, so it now has my low port sr20de+t.

took it out towards clevedon and twilight road in the wet.

Completely different animal, chassis is so much tighter and the car feels so much more nimble.  engine feels stronger too so I'm interested to see what it is like on the scales.

can't wait to hit hamptons or puke in this thing.

does anyone know what the top speed of a 4.1 fwd gbox is? can you top it out on the back st of puke given enough power?

Replaced the clutch in the daily. The as new clutch kit I had been hoarding for this purpose ended up having 8mm dowel holes which means the douchbag I bought my other car off had installed the wrong clutch which was probably not well aligned. My cheap clutch replacement ended up costing more and taking a lot longer than I planned... Considering I decided to replace the worn front rotors and found an almost split cv boot in the process. Hopefully I don't have to do any more work on that car for a while. Anyone have a use for an 8mm dowel no name clutch kit? Still shows the number printed in the friction surface it's so new.

Moved R3spct into the garage and jacked up on stands ready for work.  Wheels off and IC pipes out.  Next step is to drain all fluids as its been sitting for a while, so new engine oil is needed, and gearbox will prob be opened for inspection. 

Engine and box are coming out.  Hope to work out a way to make the clutch a bit more friendly, either by a modified pedal to increase the leverage and reduce the throw, or get another new one made :(

Just last week work mate and i did the valve guide seals in his subi head (where off motor) 5 valve guide seals (with cams already out) swapped with springs reinstalled in 7mins.  That was the best run we had between customers.

Cheers Expletive :) 

brought it at turners auctions, damaged and deregisterdd

damage was a MINOR bump in the back, which using dads chassis plant and panel beating skills took us about 6 hours to fix, no painting required!

145000kms, the car is in MINT condition, came with the wheels on it.

was a SCORE, paid $550 for it, plus around $1000 to get back registered and on the road.

i think a bargain, if i mustsay so myself!

Well I had a early start Saturday to get my exhaust man to finish the 2.5" exhaust, got one resonator and a nice coby muffler, then it was back to work to throw some 16VE cams in.
Sunday drove up the coast, met up with Daryl, quickly chucked some injectors in and went for a road tune.

The N14 pulls really hard now and has a nice exhaust note, doesnt drone at all just has a nice bark when you stomp the loud pedal.

Ill be going to sort a dyno run sometime this week to see what power Ive got.

Both are 45 offset which is great, but looks like the Stagea rims have a bit more space between the rim and the brake caliper too which might come in handy in the future

Fixed up the door bump strip on the n14 that keeps falling off. New trim tape and some SMP adhesive for good measure. Wonder how long until the other side falls off haha.

Next thing to do is to knock the nasty dent out of the sill panel that I managed to do with a rock when taking it places no 2wd car should ever go lol.

I'm considering giving it a respray but Im not sure how far I should go with this shell. I would like to VE it one day, now I've had a play with VE power lol, but then Ill have to find a crashed GTi to raid bits off because this car is GA16. It would be a real sleeper if I did VE and left it looking as-is, its a bit nana and rough around the edges.

So it was a Tuesday but it's technically a holiday as I have a week off between jobs.

I picked up some 3" pipe and me and my mate cut up my mid-pipe and he welded me up a second axleback

(https://primeracarclub.co.nz/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1083.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fj384%2Frhysgee%2F521821_10151203241781708_1664431947_n.jpg&hash=3273979470a77ced116d189f71f5be2c)

Just got to figure out how I'm gonna support it.
Have a 3" open downpipe and a 2.5" mid-pipe with two very small straight through resonators, so it is on the noisy side but damn it sounds amazing

got the p10 back from my local car engineer, with brand new full 3" exhaust, brand new AdrenalinR muffler, brand new custom steampipe manifold
Got it home, put on my new Garrett GT3082r, brand new Tial 44mm v-band wastegate, new 3 inch intake, and some custom intercooler piping

and holy s**t is it quick, turned my boost controller to 0% (so just running wastegate pressure about 11ish psi) and car is mental, now just time to get a retune as its still running marginally rich, casuing it to stutter under full load and lower revs.

made 210 with leaking wastegate, 6500rpm max and not seeing 17psi till 6000rpm  :P
hence i dumped that setup for the new one, car was making more like 250 with the first setup

Took her up to Manfield for a smash round the track yesterday ;D. Munched my crappy tyres and destroyed my brakes, even managed to set the front left caliper on fire - judging by the burn marks and melted paint.
Also met a chap with a sr16ve+t vzr running forged 8.8cr on forged internals with 20psi and 275KW AT THE FRONT WHEELS!!
Awesome day, can't wait for Taupo!

Cracked out one of my Arduino's and started putting together a MPGunio (http://ecomodder.com/wiki/index.php/MPGuino) to put in my Wagon.  Needs some fine tuning with the settings for the VSS (practically matches the speedo but going to fine tune it to match the Consult - I got the VSS count setting close but is .18km for each 1km when measuring travled distance) and fine tune the injector settings - although it seems to read the right RPM out of the box.

A few pics - I put the brain in one box to put under the dash and the display + buttons in another - ribbon cable will be replaced with something better (maybe a plug/socked arrangement).

Progress so far:

Startup screen.

Near enough bolt on, just drill the hub out to 12mm to match the evo caliper bracket then space the disc out so its sits in the centre of the bracket. :) pm me if ur interested in doing it yourself, i have all the build information from the members section of the almeraownersclub. :)

Pulled out the CVT tonight, will be putting in a manual tomorrow.

to be honest, the trickiest job of the lot was taking the passenger driveshaft out because I, in a blonde moment, popped it out of the gearbox end first. After trying to work with that, I conceded and popped it back in, then took the outer end out first.

Now that the unknown is all done, Im back in familiar ground and its just a case of doing it. The time consuming bit is going to be the pedals and new clutch line, but all going well I will be driving it mid afternoon. Exciting.

Fitted an earthing kit to noizee. What a massive difference it made. Throttle response is so much better and the stereo sounds so much clearer. treble and bass intensity increased. Highly recommend fitting these to all cars.

Fitted an earthing kit to noizee. What a massive difference it made. Throttle response is so much better and the stereo sounds so much clearer. treble and bass intensity increased. Highly recommend fitting these to all cars.

Also picked up my new rsr ti2000 springs to be fitted at a later date :-D

are the springs the black ones off trademe??

12 hour day today finishing the manual conversion. Should have been less but I did some things the difficult way with it my first time working with a primera. Main time wasters were getting the brake pedal out, and just generally stuffing around. Next time I reckon it would be a 8 hour job all up.

Anyway, pleased with the result but definitely needs a tune, you can feel dead spots mainly below 4000 rpm, and having the VVL kick in so late is just wasteful!

Good stuff, not bad time for 1st time.  Helps with good tools tho. 

Which plug was it on the cvt ecu by the way?
Title: Re: What did you do to your car this weekend
Post by: morrisman1 on 04 February, 2013, 08:56:19 AM
its a ten pin plug, which has 8 wires. I just colour matched to the manual loom that plugs into neutral switch and reverse switch. All works fine. It ended up being the grey plug on the CVT computer, which is closest to the rear of the car. I tried the other one first but tacho didn't work and ABS logged a fault.

The clutch line took ages to bleed, ended up sucking on a tube until it came through and then it was fairly easy, but it sure doesn't like gravity bleeding.

Almost got a warrent (just waiting on tyres to turn up) on the te-v (manual sr20ve) in the picture, pulled the gearbox apart in the gti pulsar (sr20ve) to see if we could fix the 5th gear pop out. and the wagon is my wifes ve wagon.

Test fitted my spare Stagea rims to the P12.

Both are 45 offset which is great, but looks like the Stagea rims have a bit more space between the rim and the brake caliper too which might come in handy in the future

Hell No, it can't be beaten. Boost is same as before, the bloody torque in mental now. 792Nm at 4800rpm.

Daughterboard installed, much improved. It just pulls and does it thing, doesn't feel like its fast but its certainly moving. I guess thats just the flat torque curve that the VE has.

Also reinforced the towbar, I wasn't happy with it mounting on the captive nuts in the chassis rail, so I drilled through and put a plate on top. spreads the load considerably. Also braced the tongue a bit to prevent flex.

And a good old wash and vacuum. Its amazing how dirty the wagon gets on the back. you can see when driving on a gravel road how it sucks in all the dirt and dust. Wet roads are pretty bad too.

did a boost leak test, found a pretty signifacnt leak on intercooler joiner.... wierd considering i never took that one off, semi fixed my low/rough idle, so gave the idle screw a turn to adjust it a bit.....
few little leaks around intake to sort also

took it for a drive down road to test gearbox, feels good so far, ran out of gas driving home  :P

few finishing touches to go, hopefully all goes well

Title: Re: What did you do to your car this weekend
Post by: Brandon on 24 February, 2013, 04:23:35 PM
using new gearbox, with old casing and swapped diff bearing race
i believe it is/was the top bearing on end of gear shaft
seems to have gotten quiter, the longer i ran it with oil in there, maybe just needed a bit of oil to be worked around a bit??
still going to chuck some MBL8 in for good measure though

gearbox feels good/wierd though
its not hard to put in gear, just firm, but it definitely feels really solid, like it really locks into gear....
hopefully this is good  :-\

Runs mint, massive improvement over the whole rev range.  Looking forwards to the tune.
Looks alot better now as i added a couple more brackets and gave it a good clean.

Not this weekend actually last weekend i decided to clean the brake dust off the Girlfriends Rav 4.
6 months of build up.

Before (after i had sprayed on the magic formula).

After a scrub with an old dish brush about 3-5mins a rim max.

Good as new,

On another note got the SR20VE 4WD Wagon tuned today,
A bit of an improvement in low down torque much more up top and lower VVL points,
Seems to be a bit cheaper on the fuel to which was highest priority,  But i haven't done a test yet,

I fitted adjustable upper control arms to the P11. Camber now matches (or very close to) the rear camber on the beam axle. Alignment is now way off and if I turn the wheel then let it go it will wobble for couple of oscillations before settling again. Surely an alignment will fix this.

Made a goal for the day to throw my Sony front speakers into the bin :) What landed in their place are some SWEET sounding Infiniti Reference components running at 2ohm with 75wrms jammed up their ass. while I was at it a fully sound deadened the doors and moved the tweeter location from the top triangle door trim down onto the door card itself and its changed the imaging alot, for the better I think.

With the help of Clive, we:

- swapped my cracked bellhousing out for a good condition one (cheers Darryl) and associated things (new seals, clutch check, CV grease and boots tidied up
- Installed new Tie rod ends and a steering rack boot
- Tidied up some yucky bolts and threads that were most likely damaged from carelessly using a rattle gun to tighten things up.
Thanks mate!

Tomorrow the plan is:

- replace leaking and stuck rear calipers, pads and new hoses, adjust handbrake
- chuck some N15 VZR/Autech/AUS SSS wheels with 205s on
- clean inside and out
- If i have time, install short shifter
- Take some photos and update build thread!

Rewired a lot of stuff under dash in preparation for running Map sensor and Inlet air temp, bye bye Maf sensor soon. 

When i installed the current setup i wasnt sure about what VVL trigger wires i was going to use, so finally got around to removing the insulation tape and twisted wires too lol. 

New setup can have  20 x 20 maps, flatshift, antilag, boost by gear, closed loop wideband, switchable maps with aircon or power steer pressure input, fully programmable check engine light, map sensor and IAT sensor, individual cylinder fuel and ignition trims, launch control, flex fuel for ethanol, knock enrichment, lots of things can be used as triggers for all sorts of things.  Cant wait to get a tune on it. Fortunately the board allows for me to play with things and flash the old tune back on.

Remounted front and rear bumpers because they were starting to sag, got some 215's fitted to the 9's in the back, lowered the back more, ordered a pair of 27mm spacers and a pair of 20mm as well. Just got to do the front camber plates one weekend.

Also settled a deal on a C33 Laurel, so I may even be back on here chasing some wheels.

I installed the KYB supersport for street adjustable shocks. Ive got them set on soft and they are a little firm for around town but on the open road they are bliss, there is no appreciable body roll in corners and it holds on at speeds quicker than Im comfortable taking corners at on a public road (not really wanting to come across a wayward tourist on the wrong side of the road when you're doing 100 around a 55 bend!) There is zero play in the steering, if you move the wheel the car turns. No null zone there at all!

Its in good nick, he swapped it for one of my 1600 covers. Do you want one?

Tom came round for a visit, ended up doing his rocker cover swap and some wiring tiding up.

Got the P10 T4 Running again after trying to remove the loom with the engine in the car for a COP conversion (ill do it when the vet goes in instead) and tried to sort out my ruined braided brake lines. Might have to by some new ones :( But shes still driveable.

Hopefully the T4 can make an appearance to the next meet.

Put in a 3.7kg flywheel on my 16ve with Brandon.

Very worthwhile upgrade! Revs faster in the lower gears, minimal loss of torque.
Isn't any harder to drive, only downside is clutch will wear slightly faster!

There was no crunch or bang and i went from 4th to 5th at about 70kph in heavy traffic then just revs and doesnt go anywhere and idles rough too so thinking clutch plate to centre spline has broken. But i give up for now
Title: Re: What did you do to your car this weekend
Post by: R3SPCT on 02 July, 2013, 10:10:37 AM
Seems that one of the biggest reasons for clutch failings is not having both alignment dowels.  I used to runsolid center clutches so i didnt throw springs, had one die as they only used 8mm rivets and it sheared them all off the clutch center, they moved to 10mm ones and never had another issue, 450hp, full drag slicks, 2nd gear burnouts at drag strip and flat shifting with launch control.

Sad to hear mate.  6 speed time? ;)

They need the proper fluid, either genuine nissan CVT fluid, or BNT sell a Fuchs CVT fluid which claims to be compatible. I dunno about the flushing process but Id be getting a trans specialist to do it if you intend on leaving the CVT in there.

If you wanted a manual, then they can be converted without too much hassle by someone who has converted before, and then you sell the old CVT for around $700 and you get a pretty cheap manual conversion. My manual conversion cost me $150 once I sold the CVT, $150 being the price of the new clutch.

Not technically the weekend yet but I fixed my rear brake light after it blew again and swapped out one of my spotlights after I failed to repair the broken one.

 Turns out that these cheap Chinese ones are so cheap you can't just swap the bulb out as it has two little wires on the back of the bulb. One touches  the metal casing as earth and the other is soldered onto the positive wire. My soldering iron was playing up and not small enough to do the job, but luckily I had a spare from when I brought a new set after one got smashed by a rock.

Good way to spend some time while Blake played in a card board box! :)

New rims on the race car. Took a while to find the perfect rim but we got there. So hard to find a 15x7 in 4x114 at the right offset without multifit. Bonus that they are one of the lightest rims out there.

Got my project GTIR wof and reg today, took it for a bit of a drive, picked kids up from school.  Needs a bit more than 6psi to wake it up a bit tho, feels a bit slow atm.  Have a Blitz boost controller, z32 maf and a daughter board to fit and wind it up a bit.

Replaced steering rack boot and did oil change on saturday. Then today darryl set to work sorting out my gearbox. Dropped gearbox and swapped gearset with one from my open diff as the lsd set was badly worn (freshly rebuilt my arse). Fitted chromoly flywheel and replaced both outer cv joints.

Flywheel makes a huge difference and so nice that i can change down to second now without crunching and dont have to worry about reverse popping out. Thanks heaps darryl.

I got sick of hit hitting the bump stops so I found some springs the right size to fit my shocks and put them in. Just a trial fit on the standard pogo stick dampers to check the height and also because I need to get some new bump stops/dust covers before the adjustables get knackered with dirt. Anyone know who has these? Im going to try BNT first as thats who I normally deal with

I fitted new condoms to my rear shocks on the wagon to keep the dust out. They came with new bumpstops. Good to have that issue sorted. Its cheaper than replacing shocks. So its got the standard springs over KYB supersport adjustable shocks now and it rides considerably better than on the lowering springs. it is firm but doesn't bounce

Bought a new one. There are a handful of issues that need sorting before I'm completely happy with it. It had its gearbox replaced in June, and I assume it is a 3.8 box. Not sure whether I like that or not.

got the brakes and strut bar ends back from the sandblaster today. look amazing all ready to be reconditioned and painted.

started to fit the new intake setup as well, carbon air box k&n long filter, 3inch piping, rb maf. just got to move the fuse boxes around to accommodate it, might have to rewire them a little.

Been working on the new bumper for R3spct for a few days now, its coming along slowly.  Getting some practice in on doing painting and body work, might do some touchups on the rest of the car at some stage.

Also fitted brand new 280 x 26 discs and Bendix HD pads to the twinpot brakes, havent driven on them yet but hoping they improve the brake pedal feel a bit.

Done a fair bit. I swapped a VZR gearset into the GTI so that I can nab the GTI gear cluster for the race car when it gets its new final drive. Changed the fire extinguisher for a motorsport NZ compliant one with two straps, gave the engine bay of the GTI and the wagon a good clean, its always nice working on a clean engine. Also took the front and rear engine mounts out of the GTI and filled them up with urethane (hopefully its dry by next event - I've been putting it in the dishwasher after its cycle completes to help it cure faster in the warm and moist environment).

Ive got tomorrow off too (sweet 4 day weekend), so ill spend a bit of time making sure that the race car will be ready for this weekend. Things to do on that is mount the passenger door clip, and fit an external clip release to both doors. The clip secures the top of the door to prevent it pulling out in strong winds.

also got my cert plate fitted on Tuesday, pretty happy with the car so far. But I am missing my P10, one day I will buy another one lol

Painted my nismo front brace and calliper mounting brackets.

Completed the 3inch intake. Finished mounting the carbon airbox. Removed the catch can setup and routed all vacuum lines as factory.

Remedied a fluid leak, turned out to be a broken hose clamp on the power steering reservoir.

Rewired the maf, reground it to the manifold as well.

Rotated the RE002 on the wagon from back to front. With the rear running slight camber don't want to wear out the insides prematurely.

Spent Saturday doing more wet sanding and polishing the orange peel out of my paint job, car looks a million times better now without the hazy areas. Bloody big job and scary at first but you quickly get the hang of it and it's not so scary once you've done a couple of panels.

Then Sunday I hit up the Caffiene and Classics hotrod show with the Oldschool boys at Smales farm, had a few comments about the car too which was pretty cool!

It has only been launched a half dozen times in the 2 years i've owned it. And won't be launched again until nightwars start up. I only launch it when i race and that's not very often.

Sure, fair enough then.

Would be good to get your opinion on why you are unimpressed with it.

Nothing to do with the clutch.
Ive discussed the issues with the person I brought them off who was unaware of the issues and in the future they will aassemble them differently to avoid this fault recurring.

Interesting car, well done. 

I did some work on the GTIR, went to tidy some of the alarm wiring, snipped a wire to the microphone for the glass break sensor, and the alarm module fried (smoke came out and i lost it all and couldnt put it back) so will be fitting a new alarm tommorow.  Was also fitting a new dash skin.

Put a new dash skin in the GTIR, updated the security system while dash was out, wired it properly rather than zip tied next to the fuse box, got the central locking going on both doors, wired up for boot release from alarm remote, fitted new front speakers, new pass door trim, got rid of some more of the metalic blue interior trim parts. Been a busy 2 days!

Did some more work on the gtir, more boost, a few issues with the wastegate actuator but think ive got it sorted now. 

Went to pickapart this morning, got some new gas stays for the rear hatch, hopefully no more bonked head, and finally managed to find a ABS computer cover for the passengers footwell.

rebuilding the intake setup on lowcno again. Vacuum bits getting welded today then a final test fit and trim some excess length of the piping. need to remount the oil filter relocation as it doesn't clear the bigger intake pipe.

washed and vacuumed the vzr too.

got the starter motor reconditioned as it died at work on wednesday, and fitted it friday after work. while removing it i discovered a broken intake manifold valve, so replaced that and now my cold idle issues and vacuum leak are gone. It got 600km to its 50l tank with the leak, so it will be interesting to see what it gets with it fixed.

fitted the 4.785:1 gearbox and tested it. At this stage no benefit in lap times but more potential there once i can get more front end grip. Will have to make the fibreglass front end again and try with that. And try with no front sway bar too. Eventually it will be time for a proper LSD, that will help but will make do at the moment.

I might take the GTI out for some laps tomorrow too just to see what it will do.

I also over the last few days before xmas rebuilt the gearbox for the wagon after a circlip broke and destroyed the input shaft seal.

Replaced the factory cassette player with a sony usb/aux/ipod unit. It does not play CD's, and is about half the weight of the factory unit because of this. I only got this to fix the terrible radio reception as it would sometimes pick up 2 stations at once :o . Also removed the CD stacker under the parcel shelf.

I picked up the latest project today:

(https://primeracarclub.co.nz/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi264.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fii200%2Fmorrisman1%2FIMG_3144_zps3a6f09f5.jpg&hash=993e55e103ed689b606d2ed1da0e9e81)

Its a lotus 7 replica that Im finishing off. There is a little bit of fabrication to do on it but the hard bits are done. I need to finish the pedal box and, do electrical and brakes, and weld all the bits which have just been tacked in place.

This is the engine that is going in initially, just for run in and testing etc. Its an a12 of unknown condition; looks rebuilt but I dont think they took it apart.

(https://primeracarclub.co.nz/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi264.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fii200%2Fmorrisman1%2FIMG_3149_zpse921a4ec.jpg&hash=2fb35ed616fc1ca9114b9b71be120604)

and this engine will end up in there eventually once the chassis is sorted. Its an a15 of unknown build, never been started, apparently should be a bit of a freak engine as it was built by a very successful australian race engine builder for his brother who never ended up using it. All I know is that it has double valve springs and some skilful porting on the head.

Like the current race car, Ill be able to use it but its not owned by me. Its essentially going to be used for clubsport stuff, not circuit racing at this stage. Im going to enter the clubsport nationals this season in the GTI, but next season if its in the lower north island Ill consider bringing the lotus up if its finished.

No resonators, just a muffler at the rear. Noise level is good, not excessively loud an although I havnt had a chance to drive it yet in neutral it revs up mighty quick once you get past about 4000rpm.

Prob more useful (and better on gas) than the X-trail anyway, they have a decent boot on them.

I had the windscreen replaced on the p10 on fri, and it had some surface rust, so driving the gtir for the weekend, but just got a top coat to do and new screen can go in, then it will be the gtir's turn.

I did a major service on Kim's TE-V today.  Changed:  oil & filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, cam cover gaskets, battery, brake fluid, front brake pads & discs.  Checked all other fluids, valve clearances, suspension joints, fault codes, HT leads and dizzy.  I'm gonna have to replace the dizzy cap and rotor shortly as some burn marks are starting to show on the rotor.  Other than that, the engine was pretty clean under the cam cover, and the valve clearances were all in the middle of the specified range.  Not bad for 210,000km :)

Easy peasy, unplug & remove the old standard bulb, fit the unit the same way as the standard bulb & plug it straight into the factory wiring plug.

Very nice! What's a kit like that worth?

Also, would this be legal ( well in nz?) or is it something you have to switch out for warrants etc?

Last couple weeks:
Converted my SSS Sentra SR20DE Open Diff to SR20VE LSD  ;D
Was a nightmare with axles.. Ended up using VZR left and right axles with original (new) outer cv's. Original right hand axle was too long on the box side.
Thanks to R3SPCT who wired the engine loom for me, started first time.
BUT. Went to take it for a drive and found the pressure plate is not engaging the clutch  :'(

Have now taken the box out and will be getting new clutch kit today. Cant wait!!

I got the VE in last weekend, got it driving this weekend. It's got lots more mid range power, but nothing up top. Probably due to the port mismatch of the DE headers and small exhaust, which I will be changing at a later date. The drive line has a shudder/vibration when taking off, and around 80-100km/h under light load. I've changed the gearbox and passenger side axle during the conversion, so I'm thinking there is some play somewhere there causing this :(

This weekend,
I did a rear brake upgrade in my vzr to a 280x9 A32 disc ::) I also got some 20mm thick spacers for the rear.

I fitted a brand new set of BC BR gold coilovers 8/6kg

I removed all the ABS brake lines and the modulator and replaced them with non ABS  items. There is a weight saving of around 6kg if you include the abs computer / wiring etc.

I replaced with BM44 BMC with a BM50 master cylinder and reservoir ( has a black lid instead of a yellow one )

I have gone and ripped out all the power steering related parts to switch to my de-powered rack. There is a weight saving of 6-7kg by doing this and one less accessory pulley to spin.

I have removed the hubs to put my n16 hubs on ( once I replace wheel bearings and get them machined properly)  which also happen to have z32 4 pot calipers to suit a 26x272 disc :) wheel spacers have been ordered for the front too.

Still a fair few things to do before the taupo track day but this ticks off a couple of things :)

I have now finished my de loom,

 I have now made and installed a water pump tensioner in the place of a factory PS pump, I also installed the underdrive water pump pulley.

I removed the steel water pipes and the water coolant neck to weld closed the branches off for the cold idle on the tb and for the heater core. This also ment I have a new radiator cap, thermostat and coolant :)

I managed to get my hands on a pair of manual window regulators and the associated parts ( except door trims), so I think I'll have to put some thin alloy sheet there.

I replaced the rocker cover gasket, the old one was in 3 pieces and was probably harder than stone!

Gave the tow wagon a complete fluid service:  Cooling system, power steering, transfer case, front & rear diffs all had their "lifetime" fluids replaced.  This is after spending a fair wad on getting a transmission flush ("lifetime" fluid again), doing a brake fluid flush and the usual oil changes.  Then I gave it a decent clean.

Then I readjusted the P10's steering wheel boss so the indicator self-cancelling works properly, and put a half-decent head unit in it.  And didn't wash it.  Last wash for this car?  Est. 2005.

We all know you're the king at washing cars when they're dirty though!

I did the front sway bar bushes in the MPS last week to get rid of the knock in the front suspension, they also made the front end feel a lot tighter which is awesome and yay for no more noise! Also replaced the thermostat and did a coolant flush on Saturday so now it warms up quickly and stays warm instead of sitting at the bottom of the temperature range on the gauge. Runs a lot smoother and heaps better on fuel, YAY!

Just bought some lowering springs and blocks for the Escort so this weekend it'll FINALLY be getting a little closer to the ground instead of the roller skate look.

Is your chassis code JM0BK103100****** or  JM0BK103200****** ?

The 1st one is standard coolant 80,000kms or 4yrs.
The 2nd on is long-life FL22, 200,000kms or 12yrs. & Mustn't be mixed with other coolants.

Ah yeah I've heard the yanks talking about that long life stuff and very few of them use it. Given I did a whole flush on the system though it shouldn't matter what I've run, right? I replace it every couple of years anyway so I'm happy to run the normal coolant. Haven't got the MPS with me today but will check when I get home to see what it should have had in it.

Installed the P11 t4 J arm to the P10, Straight bolt in! now i can clip the brake line away like the passenger side.

Serviced the p12 20v, just as well! only had about 2L oil in it, Found the sump plug was weeping (the way it is parked it wouldn't of leaked on our drive!) so fingers crossed it was leaking from that and not burning it (car has done 315k!)

Found some loose and missing bolts from the cross member from the last owners clutch replace, hopefully that was the cause of the knocking from the front, also changed the gearbox oil

just fitted replacement gearbox, checked clutch and rear engine seal, removed cat and put in straight thru pipe, which must have been working as a muffler as its alot nosier now

made up a straight thru muffler to put in place of cat, car became real noisey after cat removal, purring nicely now ,+ fitted new front discs/pads ready for new wof, prior to fitting new extractors and bigbore exhaust. on the subject of exhausts, the std system is fairly restrictive, also the factory headers have been joined incorectly, it causes a hole in the midrange power , plus the tailpipe is causing too much backpressure and flow inconsistancies, really looking forward to seeing the difference

Finally installed my solid rear engine mount, and converted to a P11 cross member at the same time. Also removed the air-con pump and fitted a delete belt for it. Gear changes are much improved, and much less jerkiness when going on/off throttle. I'll get a solid front mount for it later on :D. Thanks to Faz and Damo for the help!

Went for cert!

As you can imagine I will need to get a couple more bits of trim back in the car !

Just a note, anyone who is planning on removing airbags, you need to replace your seatbelts with the web locking type, the universal brackets they supply you with are also not compliable.

what do you mean by web-locking type?
Title: Re: What did you do to your car this weekend
Post by: Hungry on 30 November, 2014, 10:23:44 PM
The OE ones lock the shaft that the belt reels on. The seat belt can actually tighten up on itself giving it a fair amount of stretch. When you remove the air bag system you remove the seat belt pre tensioner function.

The web locking type locks on the belt itself meaning there is next to zero stretch

Kev-o helped me replace my front crank seal after it blew out on the tawharanui cruise.

Big thanks also to K-ran for leaving the cruise and leading me home in case i ran into further trouble.

Today I gave my p10 a bit of attention. Replaced the starter motor as it failed last weekend in auckland and I've push started it since...... Cleaning throttle body at the same time. Also removed my idle air control valve and gave it a clean out as the car was idling really badly. It now starts and runs really nicely

I drove the escort in and around Coromandel. Covered about 700kms, a large part of that was on gravel roads so you might say the escort was quite at home.

This was all a part of the Oldschool.co.nz annual national meet, much like our own but, well, bigger. Much bigger!

Convoyed down with these crazy cats...

Surprisingly the car really didn't miss a beat, it felt great on the gravel and handled it's own on the tarmac. The crappy tyres and average suspension did leave me behind a few times (let alone the severe lack of horsepower) but holy crap what a weekend.

Just think of it as a 70s primera...

So I got a little motivation yesterday.

Replaced front swaybar links (the R/H one had stripped the thread out and was causing knocking)
Did the Swaybar D Bushes in Nolathane, the link bushes in Whiteline
Did front lower arm bushes with Nolathane camber correction rear bushes and Energy Suspension fronts
Shifter bushes replaced with Energy Susp poly kit (Thanks Nick!!)

I also dropped the oil and chucked in some fancy Penrite along with MBL8, first cold start this morning and, wow, no chain rattle!

Oh yeah, also while idling after the additive application, my radiator fans decided to hand grenade!! One seized up and coughed out a lovely smelling puff of burnt electrical goodness and the others plug had managed to break pull its self off the fan body while still getting power to spin it......

Found some mint GTI door cards, so installed them to the GTIR. Interestingly they are different from GTIR ones, the hole for the seat mount is higher on the GTIR but they must be made to be fitted to either, new hole drilled and all good.

While I was at it, I gave the interior a once-over, wet-vac the seats and floor mats and they came up real good.

"DANGER TO MANIFOLD"

Did you have sparks flying out from under the engine in the process? :P :P

I think there would have been some as the bolts rattled themselves loose.

This weekend I blew up my gtir motor due to a huge amount of boost, all good a rebuild was in the plans anyway, and sussed out two more p10 for now a daily and a weekend driver while the det is off the road.

Dude I deafened myself. My ears were ringing on the way home. It was worth it though. Think it's a little bit less disruptive now after the work I had done to it this morning.
