  1. Will be purchasing bc gold coilovers soon too
  2. Hey there I have purchased an Ep71 turbo s rep work in progress for cheap(1k) but the fenders have been cut and welded by the old owner as he wanted bigger wheels. My plan was to swap my ep82 engine, suspension and wheels(15x8 with 185/55/r15) but since I can't uncut the fenders I was wondering if it would be worth it to go 16 or 17" instead he also gave me bolt on fenders as the guards look rough so I was thinking about 9" wide as well but can't find any supporting forums on this. Cheers. Wheels in pics are 14x8
  3. havent had car going properly for couple years, took it for a drive last week and this light along with battery light came on. swapped out alternator n fixed one issue but since installing new o2 sensor the cat light has stayed on. what could be causing this?

    Misfire?

    I tried disconnecting the wire to the o2 sensor and no change :/

    Misfire?

    Ohhh okay that could be my problem, see my o2 sensor wire was cut so I rewired it up. I'll give that a go after work. Thanks

    Misfire?

    Hey there lads I've been working on my ep82 without starting it once for the last 6 months and today I've finally finished and its now on the road however; I can't rev past 3.5-4k rpm in any gear without it just bogging out or what I believe to be a possible misfire, I'm not sure how to diagnose one though. My dad thinks it could be getting too much air as my air filter is sitting right behind the grill(not that the grill is on at the moment). I put new magnicore leads on and have now put the old ones back on which made no difference so I'm thinking change the spark plugs and make up a new air intake. What do you guys think? Also found that when I sit at about a quarter throttle it will rev out as far as I want but just the tiniest bit too much and it will lurch forward and back All help and suggestions are very appreciated
  7. Cheers mate Small update, managed to sort out my new steering wheel. Found out that the bosskit I brought was only for wheels with quick release so there was no room for my horn button and I didn't feel like wiring a separate button for it so I ended up buying an adapter which also didn't fit as I read the measurements wrong Well after that I decided to try the old boss kit as it had a mono on there already and that as enough room for the horn however the new wheel didn't fit onto it so I chucked he adapter on there as a joke to see how long I could extend the hub and realized that it fit lmao. So I just dropped the wheel as low as it would go and its actually a great fit 👌 Here's how it sits http://imagizer.imageshack.us/a/img924/3485/g1B0xg.jpg After fiddling around in the garage finding some hardware and then under the car which is not fun with how low it is and not lifting it with the jack. I managed to also get this Ultra Racing 3 point strut brace in, looking good if you ask me The car is a mess at the moment as I'm doing a lot of different things on it in different places haha http://imagizer.imageshack.us/a/img921/9215/xwSRhq.jpg Still waiting on some parts but I should be able to update within the next week hopefully
  8. Yeah man that would be cool! Might not have the starlet running by then as I'm waiting from some parts from the uk which take about 3 weeks to get here but if I do I'll have to take you for a wee cruise up my favorite spot as it recently opened up again after there was a big forest fire
  9. Hey lads, my names Hayden and im new here coming from way down south in New Zealand! i recently bought a gt starlet(ep82) about half a year ago and have been doing a few mods to it. I've been wanting to start a build thread for a while now and am finally going to give it a go. I brought her for $2100 nzd or £1200, it wasn't the tidiest and needed a bit of work but it ran so i got into fixing a few things straight away.first i stripped out the interrior but i have done a lot since i got it and will probably miss alot of small stuff but here is how it sat when i got it. http://imageshack.com/a/img924/8101/40iwFv.jpg http://imageshack.com/a/img922/9233/qqSXke.jpg so that week it managed to blow a radiator as the fan wasn't working which i wasn't aware of so that weekend we got set and did an oil change and put a new radiator and coolant into it. http://imageshack.com/a/img924/5751/qODPOK.jpg the windows didn't work as the previous owner had swapped them out for windy windows for some reason and had the incorrect rails so we went down south about 8 hours or so to invercargill from christchurch and then back the same night with only 2 stops and picked this up for only $450, what a steal!!! http://imageshack.com/a/img923/1513/pIfNpT.png Keep in mind it was in very bad condition but i managed to salvage a few bits which i needed, the seats and rails as mine were no good, seatbelts as mine were burnt and couldn't pass wof with it. wof is like mot i believe. the window regulators, switches and some superlow lowering springs which don't sit low enough for me. i will invest in some coilovers at some stage. i also managed to sell a few bits, a hatch, petrol cap, bov that came with it, pod filter and parcel tray. I didnt like the 17s that it came on and they rubbed at lock, so i got to saving and ordered some brand new 15x8 enkie 92 reps and a full new set of tyres which i got at a discount as my uncle works at a tyre shop. he fitted everything for me!! http://imageshack.com/a/img924/6706/5CY6ju.jpg http://imageshack.com/a/img923/7678/uRnWHX.jpg heres how it sat on the new rims and lowering springs http://imageshack.com/a/img924/9482/sMsLN0.jpg http://imageshack.com/a/img924/9107/GF9cQr.jpg one day after work i decided to go for a drive to my favorite spot which is in the port hills, a place called sugarloaf where everyone meets up and does skids and races etc http://imageshack.com/a/img924/6263/Y0dJ9a.jpg my old man had some tail light tint so i decided to spray a few coats on and see how it looked. i love it )) http://imageshack.com/a/img923/6861/hlCNBX.jpg my friend who owns an evo 6 had taped his headlight for that angry look and told me to give it a go so here's how it looked after i tried that, not too bad in my opinion :/ http://imageshack.com/a/img924/5195/q6MXHh.jpg went up to sugarloaf again with my friend in the evo and another friend who has a primera, love this pic http://imageshack.com/a/img924/170/CKdWZe.jpg we chilled there for a bit then another friend of mine showed up in his holden commodore, he did heaps of skids which i can upload if anyone is interested. some pics he took of our rides parked up on one of the bays down the hill. http://imageshack.com/a/img921/7771/iQo16x.jpg http://imageshack.com/a/img921/6093/W59v7Y.jpg heres the last picture i took before unfortunately i had to park her up(its been 4 months at the time of writing this). http://imageshack.com/a/img921/8062/4aVZh7.jpg been parked up for a while now and it saddens me coming home from work every day and just seeing her parked out on the street in bits. first of all the manifold had cracked so i got onto getting that welded. i have a pic of the big ass crack somewhere but cant find it so heres a pic of the turbo, manifold and wastegate all taken off. http://imageshack.com/a/img921/2561/QKkvXI.jpg i have brought shitloads of parts since shes been off the road. including a new fmic and piping kit, new civic radiator and mounting kit, hks ssqv, some nzkw bucket seats and mounting brackets, new nzkw steering wheel and boss kit, boost, oil temp and oil pressure gauges with pod, new shifter, magnicore blue racing leads and ngk iridium spark plugs, front strut brace and a rear 3pt strut brace plus heaps more. http://imageshack.com/a/img923/9541/IwWwuq.jpg this last week ive pulled off the rocker cover and cleaned it all up and drilled a hole where the metal breather was to get some an10 hydraulic hose fittings welded in and sand blasted http://imageshack.com/a/img921/173/drLPnM.jpghttp://imageshack.com/a/img923/6421/yNT4e8.jpg this is all i have for now but will keep you all up to date cheers for reading!
  10. i have found a guy who should be able to do it for me, does anyone have the links too all the pieces i will need?
  11. Cheers, is there no other way of doing it?
  12. Hey lads i recently installed an oil catch can into my ep82 gt starlet and i do not like the hosing that came with it. It is a clear/green color and looks gross and i love the look of braided lines so i was wondering if someone could please help me as to how to install them. preferably with no welding involved as alloy welding here in New Zealand gets quite pricey. cheers
