    I've used Conceptua a few times, for gaskets and Nissan oil filters typically. Have found them to be good, and the parts certainly look genuine (but I guess it's impossible to be 100% sure).

    I had to use Nengun for an Apexi air filter, couldn't find anywhere UK based when I looked a year or two ago.

    Spark plugs are easy to get, I tend to use Opie Oils.

    Difficult to compare without knowing your oil grade and temps, since this is all about viscosity.

    Mine regularly fluctuates below 1 at idle after a session on track, with oil temp typically around...

    I appreciate the encouragement! I think I'd wait until my box fails before going down such a big job (for me at least).

  6. More BMC Woes - leaking from tell-tale

    I refurbished a used BM57 after my original BM57 didn't allow shimming of the internal proportioning valve.

    Problem is, on re-assembling and bench bleeding, I'm getting a dribble of fluid out of...

    I'm by no means an expert, but there's a lot that can influence brakes. Just changing the calipers doesn't automatically guarantee a certain effect. For starters, are they bled correctly? Are the...

    I have a koyo rad and managed to get the stock fan and shrowd on, so I'm not quite sure why it won't fit on yours. Can take pictures if it would help.

    For future reference, should someone be searching for the same issue, I can confirm:

    The two Nissan BMC OEMs, Nabco and Tokico, whilst externally similar and interchangeable, use different...

    Did you get anywhere with this? My BM57 seems to be the same, and similarly can't find any info online about whether the internal prop valve can be shimmed or otherwise overriden.

    Yes, the closer ratios would be a bonus, for my track car anyway, especially since it looks like 1-3 are shorter but 5th is actually longer geared. So faster acceleration in the gears most used on...

    My car came with GTR Brembos front and standard S14 rears, so I can't compare with a purely OEM setup.

    I have done numerous track days and the GTR Brembos resist fade well, although this will be a...

    To follow this up, I installed the speed bleeders and bled everything to death. Brakes feel more positive now and seem to lock up the fronts equally. Got a track day in a few weeks so that will be...

    Thanks for the thoughts Dan.

    The setup is R33 GTR fronts and standard rear calipers, with the BM57. This is what came on the car when I bought it about 8 years ago (I didn't even realise the BMC...

    My first thought was to do this, to be able to tell what the pressure was before and after. But I've struggled to find a cheap gauge that can cope with around 2000psi. Best I've come up with is the...

    I should say, the BMC is a BM57 (always worked fine before the refurb) and I didn't touch the proportining bit if it has one (I just pulled the pistons and springs and changed the seals).
