  1. High Pressure Cleaners?

    I have a Gerni and it's great.It's a little more expensive than a bunnings Karcher though.
  2. Nissan service vs..

    Take it to a trusted mechanic and give them your own oil (10W40 is best IMO). Nissan oil is rubbish, Castrol 10W30. Also every 40,000km is a major service for an S15.
  3. New to lifting

    Diet and lifts look good. I've found i made better progress lifting heavier weights with shorter sets. E.g. 5 sets of 5 reps rather than 3 sets of 10 reps. If you can do more than 10 reps, it ain't heavy enough, add more weight. Goodluck.

  5. Tyre pressures?

    What size are you rims? 18 x 8 front and 18 x 9 rear? I run 18 x 8 all round with 235/40R18 tyres on 40 psi. I find i get even tyre wear with this. I ran up to 42 psi, but got more tyre wear in the middle, so i knew this was too high. Years ago i had a chat with my bridgetone tyre dealer (who fitted all highway patrol cars in the area) and he said too much under 40 psi on 18 inch wheels would mean less grip, as the tyre sidewalls were not stiff enough. Depending on your rim width i would say something like 38-40 psi up front with 40-42 on rears would be suitable. Take note of tyre wear and adjust.
  6. Your latest mod? Whats new?

    Fitted a cold pipe to run some cold air towards my airbox.
  7. Redline MT-90

    Yup.Heavy duty shockproof was u/s. Nissan mt-xz gear oil 75w-gl4 part no KE916-99932 has been demonstrated to be much better for 200sx and Skyline gearboxes than the heavy duty shockproof for road use. The lightweight shockproof is said to be ok but is far more expensive than the Nissan oil but no better I disagree. I find that the nissan oil (which is castrol) becomes notchy after 5,000kms. I have used redline lightweight shockproof for the last 80,000 kms in my S15 and love it. I changed my gear oil recently (not because the gearbox was notchy, but because i was replacing all other fluids) and wanted to see if lever movement improved. It didn't, it was still great. Yes lightweight shockproof isn't cheap, but you can leave it in there much longer. If you use standard gearbox oil, you would be changing it more often to achieve a similar smooothness.

    Check local wreckers. I've had great results with http://www.findapart.com.au/
  9. Intercooler hose diameter

    Last time i did that (on the hot side, when i was opening up my airbox) i reattached the hose poorly. Hose came off 150 km from home, car died, i spent an hour on the side of the road and got a lecture from the NRMA bloke. I'm not keen for a repeat. I'm not going to replace the hose myself, i just wanted to have the hose ready to save some time.
  10. I've done a search but had no luck. I'm after the size of the 90 degree bend silicone hose that comes off a Hybrid GT intercooler. It's on the driver's side (cold side), before it comes on up through the battery and into the intake manifold. I think it's 3 inch, but it could be 3-2.75" My hose is rubbing against the (poorly) trimmed foglight housing, and it's only a matter of time before it starts leaking air. I've gone back though the manual that came with it and it claims that this section is a cast pipe, however whoever installed it there has put a silicone hose. http://photos.imageevent.com/kadepunk/hybridinstallationguides/S1415%20instruction%2004.pdf Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. best cams for T28BB?

    CroS13 recently posted this in the NSW section. http://www.nissansilvia.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=452858 Yavuz from Unigroup (tuner) told him the Greddy easy cams he had were of little use on his stock T28.
  12. Forward/ Hunched Shoulders

    I found that dumbell rows helped me. Also when you walk, make an effort to make the insides of your shoulder-blades touch in the middle of your back
  13. S15 Rear Bar (AUD)

    You can take off the rear bar, take out the reflectors and fill up the holes with a fibreglass kit from bunnings. Then respray.
