  1. What are you listening to right now?

    New Slipknot album: We Are Not Your Kind Released only yesterday Love these cunts, they never fail to impress
  2. My car hides in the shed 99% of the time so doesn't get the opportunity to get defected. However when I do get it out it often results in a defect. Check out this site, it shows what your height and track can be as a minimum. https://www.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0015/15261/Passenger-Car-Track-list-2.15.pdf Unfortunately cops can defect you for suspicion and have you go to regency to have such defect to be verified to be legal or not. I've been defected for some really stupid shit before. I've even had the inspectors at regency laugh at me when I gave them my defect notice and they read what its been defected for. I know you can drive a defected car between home and places of repair if the car is registered. I believed you could get approval to drive a defected car if its still registered if it's been booked in for a inspection but best double check.
  3. South Australian Supra Club Meet & Greet

    SA Supra Club often organise events. You can keep up to date with what their up to on Facebook. I've been interested to attend one of their events but feel weird when I have never owned a Supra.
  4. these wheels on my car

    Kmakas, I want to know how your post was posted in the year 2024 but you haven't been online since 2010.
  5. Cartel Defi-Style Gauges

    I've looked at Defi gauges but have thought I'd go Innovate gauges. They have a range that monitor 2 things in the one gauge.

    Nice car mate. Got many plans for it?
  7. General chit chat thread!

    I never thought I'd ever post in the bike section on here. I've got a Hyosung GT650. Who else has a mighty Hyosung?
  8. Adelaide Dyno Tuners

    Hey mate, good to see you're still on here also. I've currently got a Nistune. I was going to Jaustech but they have unfortunately closed their doors hence needing to find a new place to go. Locally I've got Boostworx, Fours N More and Morpowa. Unsure if anyone else knows of any other places. I've spoken to Simon at Morpowa and I'd like to have him take on my 180 but he doesnt do imports and mainly concentrates on V8s but I'm trying to twist his arm to make an allowance for me. Places I've considered that arnt local to me are Japanese Motorsport, Garage 7 and Glynde Garage. Just looking for suggestions and recommendations as I want to only take my car to one workshop and build a positive relationship with them like I had with Jaustech.
  9. Adelaide Dyno Tuners

    Hi Everyone, Long story short my mechanic I've been with since 2012 are closing their doors. Now needing a new workshop to take on my car. I need suggestions on who to consider. My car is a 180sx running a SR20 and need someone who can confidently tune, service and repair it. I'm in the Para Hills region and obviously don't want to travel extensive amounts and would like someone local if possible. Hit us up with suggestions and experiences. More discussion the better. Cheers
  10. SR20det grinding noise and no boost

    I've got a horrible grinding noise but mine is apparently in the exhaust, I've got a relatively new turbo so hope its not that lol. I'd love to fix the problem but haven't honestly bothered trying to fix it yet.
  11. Hi Everyone, I'm in need of a new head to replace my current one but the one I looked at has been dismantled and everything thrown into a container. Looking at all the parts it seems it's missing a cam cap and some shims etc. My question is, is it worth getting this head or move on and find another one. I'm wanting to simply get another head and transplant everything from my current head into the new one. Before anyone asks why, my current head has been machined way too much and has increased the compression too much and preventing me to achieve what I want from the engine. Cheers
  12. Running rich after installing EBC

    Just a follow up on this problem, I ended up taking it to the mechanic and since I had done nothing to my car since the last tune other then installing the AVCR they reinstalled the last tune. It fixed nothing and there was way too much fuel being put into the engine. I was even asked if I had installed bigger injectors since the last tune, it even baffled the mechanics. They ended up doing a new tune. I'm glad I took it back to them. When they looked at my previous notes the engine had 200psi compression on all four cylinders and it was worked out to between 10:1/11:1 compression ratio. With the compression ratio so high 23psi of boost was still being squeezed into the engine. With this new tune they weren't able to go beyond 14psi without some major knocking and when I got the car back it's been suggested to not push it too hard for too long especially under load and ensure to keep the revs high. It still baffels me on what happened for it to all of a sudden change and have problems. It must have something with the installation of the AVCR but not sure what it could be.
  13. Dash/Tale light Issue

    Since my first post I've learned its also the parkers which aren't working along with the dash and rear tail lights. I've finally fixed the problem. I checked all the fuses more than once and even replaced the parker fuse just in case it was mistaken as ok. I unsecured the kick panel fuse box and inspected it to see if there was anything visually wrong with the wires. I removed and reinstalled all relays in all three fuse boxes. I removed all rear globes and front parker and indicator globes and cleaned all the contact points. Visually inspected all wires with the rear lights, parkers/indicators and all the under dash wires. I even removed the indicator stalk and inspected it. They were all the main things I found on the net which solved other peoples problem with the same issue. Only other thing I read which solved the problem for other people was replacing the indicator stalk. I grabbed another stalk, installed it and problem fixed. Sorry for my rambling but hoping that this might help others fix the same problem if it happens to happen to their car. Thanks Pmod for you're help, I was stressing out hoping it wasn't internal wire breakage withing the fuse box wires but thought I'd try all these other fixes first before going into the more complex fixes
