93.5-96 p10 trans and SE-R trans have the same final drive and 1-2nd gears. 3-4-5 on the p10 are only 3-6% longer than the SER so not really much of a difference. At 140mph with the SER trans you will only get another 6mph roughly.
The speedo gears are different because of the tire size difference so that makes the mph difference on the cluster more than it actually is.
Morettes restored, painted, and mounted. I still need to make some harnesses for them to plug up to the usdm headlight connector. Will be doing that tomorrow.
I changed the rear of the car up for now too. Not too serious about them, but change is good every once in a while.
Thanks itinifini. I wasn't getting used to the way the rear looked, so I went back with the full ukdm set of tails already haha.
I couldn't get the eastbear to fit without hacking on either it or the morettes. I wasn't down to cut up either one, so that's the only reason you won't see the morette/eastbear combo on my car..
I did recently paint a phase1 Infiniti grille, which does look better than the phase2 morette combo imo.
Honestly, I don't plan on keeping the morettes on for more than a couple of months... just wanted something different to show off for a while.
Here's a pic of them all lit up with the low beam ground removed for all 4 to be dim at once
I've had both the rear fogs wired as brake lights since I bought the ukdm tails about 6 years ago....on another note, I put some r134 into the a.c. system and drove around in a.c. for a while today.. the coolant system doesn't seem to be able to handle it though... I guess between the intercooler blocking half the condensor. And having only one fan, the condensor is heating up and the radiator can't deal..
Developed a clunk in the front passenger side a about 2 weeks ago when taking off, and occasionally when coming to a stop., i hadnt tackled the bushings yet, so tonight i Installed energy suspension LCA, sway bar, rack and pinion, and both shifter stabilizer bushings, and new away bar links from moog.
I need to align the car, it drifts right now, but it definetly made a huge difference in feel. The clunk is still there, but it's harder to get it to happen now. Read others having issues with the king pin bearings, so I'm going to try and replace those next.. uca bushings seemed tight, but would like to address those eventually too
Clunk was solved with new xmember bushings. I also changed the wheels up and installed my front phase2 bumper. Still need to paint the rear...er uh.. repaint the rear bumper.. also had to replace another ACT clutch because of a broken spring. Also replaced the greddy rs diaphram with one from a company call ngr. Car has been performing well. Then today I lost 5th gear after several miles of being pushed very hard. Thinking it went to pop out of 5th, and broke the shift fork. We'll see. Here's some pics
