Those look more like R32 GTR non V-Spec calipers (they fit 32mm wide rotors) so I'm not sure R33 GTS-T rotors would work.

R33 GTS-T rotors definitely aren't the same as Z32, they're 296mm in diameter.

All this is in the event you ever need to find replacement rotors.

update!

so lately the car has been doing its normal dd'ing activites, school is done for a few weeks so i picked up more hours at work delivering so ive been pretty dependent on the car and if worst comes to worst i could just use my parents car but the cars been good to me, other then the car not starting every couple of days which im really want to figure out soon. im sick of charging the car every morning and then it runs completely fine afterwards.. mystery mobile.

well as far as the car goes, my friends have been wanting me to go out with them more and get some more seat time. im def. getting alot more comfortable with sliding the car and transitioning weight and all. but all good things come to an end



replaced as a temp. with tein tie rods and installed my pbm angle spacers. a def big improvement but i went want to get some kind of adjustable outer tie to adjust the roll center. btw this side of my car is becoming more plagued by the day. its like rotting and cracking everywhere.. the rest of the car is spotless though -__-



next order of business is too much slamslam. my hoods been acting funny for the past week and a half and finally figured it out.. the hood latch wire has been rubbing and ripping apart, resulting in the hood barely opening.


another reason which got me to change this thing is because my turn signals stopped working the other day and assumed that if my hood latch wire was rubbing, then my harness is rubbing. which it was. i temporarily fixed it at negrosx13's house after it happened.. checked the signals, worked good and then when i put the fender back on it stopped working again.. w t f. so i finally had a day off and decided lets get this thing straightened out.


the other side looked to be in the clear. nothing ripped here but ill double check.


6 wires were messed up on this side. made sure i color matched, soldered and heat shrinked all bad connections.




everything worked again, signals, hazards etc. but next issue i was having the previous night is that the alarm was going off for no reason, after like 15 seconds of enabling the alarm. after disabling i went to start the car, it would crank and but just crank till the battery died.. normally like what it does during the morning. so as usual i threw it on the charger for 10 mins.. cranks but doesnt turn over. the car is getting fuel but no spark. so im guessing the alarm is disengaging it from getting spark. so i left it the next day. same shit the next morning, it cranks till it dies, charge it.. after playing the alarm, arming and disarming for a few mins.. the car runs but it runs for maybe like 2 seconds. figured fuck it, let me unplug all the alarm accesories and see whats up. i couldnt even find the box but after scrambling and searching, i have this rats nest. some of it is a couple of gauges but this is some janky sketchy wiring.

im about to call the guy up and just tell him to remove all this sketchy ass wiring and ill go elsewhere who actually knows how to mess with this car and install it.


after unplugging that crap, i got the car to start but under one condition. it cranks and doesnt die.. BUT if i start the car in flood mode it starts up, runs choppy for a few secs but then idles and drives normal. took it around the block and drove good. i turn it off after driving it, crank it back up and starts right up. but now if i leave it off for like 20 mins it wont start unless i start it in flood mode. weird shit. hopefully i get to it tomorrow. also im not a fan of this freddy bov and this intercooler setup. i want to run something recirculated. until i get the 2871r im just gonna run the smic my friend has from his front clip 8 years ago with the stock bypass valve and all. i think itll look pretty cool and return more to a stock state. curious to see how this car runs with a stock smic as opposted to a slight larger fmic on a completely bone stock sr with the except of a hks filter and mbc.

also i will be installing this since my friend just got the consult software for nissans on his laptop. no more trouble shooting issues by eye and ear. since my cars a 90.. i took the consult plug from my friend koukisandsomeappleuice's 91 part out car and wire it up on the ecu side.


other then that i just stiffened the spring rate, did some more hammering to hopefully reduce any more rubbing

I know :/ I have absolutely no money attm because I still need to pay another 1000 for my reckless past in the next month and a half. I need to give back these tie rods this week, I still need an alignment too before I get brand new tires. Which leads to my next question if anyone wants to help out.

Specs on the fronts are 17x8.5+5 with a 215/45 with -5 degrees of camber. Should I run a
205/40 and atleast a 10mm or 15mm spacer up front and look a little better or stick with the 215/45 and get a 10mm. Ill post pics in a tad
