    See classifieds for a set of BC ER coilovers which were only on the car for a couple of weeks

    Just found this old thread. If anyone is looking for Shifti RPM shift lights or a Racechrono touch screen with GPS, PM me as I have both for sale.

    When my box shit it self early this year, I did the same. CD009, JWT clutch & flywheel from coz at CZP. He was very helpful, quick transport etc. I have a standard 03 model gearbox with dodgy 3rd & 5th if anyone is looking to rebuild one.

    What are you needing to rebuild? I have an 03 manual gearbox with a dodgy 5th gear if you are interested in it.

    Track goodies forsale
    I hope I'm not in trouble for a double post but I thought it might be worth alerting you track focused guys to my part out sale as it's not everyday that these sort of track focused parts come up forsale. Please see this post if you are interested: http://zclub.com.au/...old/#entry70863

    Also you maybe interested in a cheap ($14,900!) 350z to turn into a track car. New gearbox and top rate brake package but has motor damage. See http://zclub.com.au/...age/#entry70858

    Thanks benamon. I saw them today, unfortunately they aren't compatible with an 03.
  7. cpopowski added a post in a topic getting BC coilover and whiteline swaybar   

    I have BC ER's and whiteline's and I'm very happy with both.

    I spoke to Chasers today and they were of the opinion that local builder can build bottom end but overseas for the heads is probably better due to wealth of knowledge and cheaper costs. On this basis I think I will go with the import long block option.

    Kam, if it were you, would you go the imported long block option or purchase all the bits and have a local Melb company do the machine and install work?

    More good help BGTV8. Thanks, I will add this to the list of items.

    Thanks Monk_13, I will keep that in mind. Have any of you guys had head work (or bottom end) done on your DE in Melb? I could get a short block from the US and have a local machine the head and do the valves etc but I'm assuming people like Importpartspro would have more expirience with these motors than anyone local?
  12. cpopowski added a post in a topic Power figures   

    Is there a lot of difference between long tube headers and say Crawford headers into Motordyne ART pipes into Motordyne Y pipe?
  13. cpopowski added a post in a topic Mayday, Mayday - we have a problem   

    Kam, yes, I try to check oil between track days but it's a PITA as the dipstick is all bent out of shape and its hard to get a good read. I assume I would have seen an oil light if really low?
  14. cpopowski added a post in a topic Mayday, Mayday - we have a problem   

    Thanks Kam, I will post a part list once I have a draft. Will check out GT Motorsports in the US. _BD_, I will check out Niss4x4 if I decide to go with a local builder. Thanks

    Thanks for your advice. Budget is not too much of a concern, it is more about just doing something solid and sensible without going over the top and spending money on things that aren't required. I know that I want to keep it NA forever so bottom end only needs to support say 200-240rwkw. I'm more interested in a bit of head room rpm wise, reliability, and some extra kw's would be a bonus. I will certainly go with some JWT or similar cams. Not concerned about daily drive-ability as I will just have a more mild tune setup in Orisis for the road and more aggressive for the track. I only drive it 5kms to work each day so not a big deal.
    The fun starts now putting a list of parts together and finding someone to do the labor as I'm not up to it.
