Hi, Just wondering if anyone can provide some advice. I have an LH Torana running a Borg Warner LSD out of a VS Commodore and 15 x 10 Prostars with 275/50 x 15 under flares, and no, they don't rub anywhere since some minor massaging. Fronts were 15 x 3.5 Prostar front runners (which are illegal on Qld roads), so have just bought 2 new 15 x 7 Pr... more

Hey guys, recently I've swapped out my motor in my 2005 vz v6 crewman, 6 speed manual. When I ordered the motor I made it very clear to the supplier that I needed a 10HBB motor as that's what was in there already. New motor rocked up and it was a 10HBA motor. I rang and explained they had sent the wrong motor but they were pretty certain it... more

When it comes to automatic transmission issues with Nissan Pulsars, it depends on what model / era of vehicle, but I'll cover a few different generations of Nissan Pulsars in this article. The first and most obviously (to a mechanic at least) thing to check is the transmission oil, it could very well be that it's never been changed (or has... more

OK I often read people having problems with VL's and especialy their engine management computer. It's no wonder as these are now getting on towards 20yrs old. So I thought I would make this post up for those that have VL's and have problems from time to time. This test is for the VL n/a 3.0ltr engine and also the 3.0ltr turbo engine; ... more

Hey guys, Got a few questions regarding modplates. When you get an LA2 plate do you need a brake upgrade? Ive seen quite a few silvias with rb's and still running 4 stud setup. If you fitted all the skyline brakes and master etc would that just be an LG2 or would it need both LG1 and LG2? Cheers more
