UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored.  At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.

     We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations.  Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.

     It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.


As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

  1. Installed the oem steering damper pin from Nissan 19$ and used a Monroe shock for 55$ and Lordco hardware for 3$... Grand total of 77$ and wow... Truck feels so much better driving down the road with 33x12.5 and 15x10 steel rims.. Almost feels like a fullsize now haha!

    1. lint


      part numbers please!!! I want to do this also!

    2. Nefarious


      Kk ill get the parts numbers and hardware sizes today. Best 77 dollars I've put into this rig hands down.

    3. lint
  2. Just mounted a rear tire carrier on my truck that didn't come with one. Took me all freakin day and a sore back but it's done. Made all custom bolt-in 1/4 inch plate brackets. Turned out AWESOME and it is so strong, no play at all with my 33x12.5 mounted on back. Yay for trunk space again.....

  3. Sigh im glad my pathy is so bullet proof. just got my 300zx running properly and now its making noise in the timing cover. Time for a 120k service, *sigh* lol

  4. Anyone know if the TD27t bellhousing will fit on the VG30e gearbox?? I have a good RE4R01A and theres a Terrano with blown trans only 70k original Kilometers.... wondering if I can piece the two together.....

      hey what's up with that 300zx? I knew it was in some sort of collision, but I wasn't aware it wasn't running. Much less aware that it had been out of commission for some months now.

      I salvaged it from my neighbour who crashed it, then drove it 800 miles to the next province with no front bumper, sucked up water onto the maf and pooched it so he limped it home at 2500 rpm, then he parked it. I completely restored it from the crash and replaced all the missing pieces and she fired right up! still working out a few kinks it runs strong but idles a little high and has a slight miss. checking codes tonight i suspect the o2s are shot and maybe the power transistor unit for...

    4. Nefarious


      the coilpacks. then the pathy is goin off the road for a SAS!!

  5. Nissan Terrano 2.7 turbo diesel for sale just down the road from me... It has a failing auto... Anyone know if the regular pathy auto will bolt up? totally different transmission im guessing? I could get it for 2 grand or less I want to know if I will be able to find a tranny!!

    1. Nefarious


      only 77k KILOMETERS on the odo... does the regular pathy auto or 5 speed bolt up to the diesel? or would i need to import a transmission??

    2. Slartibartfast


      This is the only pic I could find of a Terry trans: http://www.sulit.com.ph/index.php/view+classifieds/id/2228240/Nissan+Terrano+(Automatic+Transmission)#imageGallery I dunno what the Pathy transmissions look like though, couldn't find an end-shot in the FSM.

    3. Nefarious


      hm thanks for that image... i must try and find a transmission code for it...hmmm


  6. Just finished my custom idler arm brace. similar to calmini but perfect fitment and cost me 6$ to make. :)

      Okay it's finished and painted, thread is up in the fab section. Roast away! :P

    3. tmoore4512


      Hey it looks good!

    4. Nefarious


      thanks guys. still gettin my hand at fab but it should serve the purpose!


  7. Okay back home to the island. Goals for next few days: Finish reinforcing idler arm, finish welding up a double shear idler arm brace. Figure out how to mount the rear tire carrier I just got, mount new front full bull bar front guard with light guards (think maybe from an r50). Also looking for new lift springs. Need more lift! to go 5.9 JGC or 3" lift cherokee springs. Anyone know how long the 3" lift cherokee springs are??? 20 inches would be ideal...

  8. To stay 15x10 steel or use the 15x8 alloys i just got..... would i really have that much more power/gas mileage????

    1. OldSlowReliable


      the 15x8's hold a better bead IMO, especially on super low pressures for sand/such. I like my 15x8 with my 33x12.50s alot.

    2. Tungsten
    3. nunya


      weld em togher and have 15x18 hybrids!

  9. 12+ inches of snow. Play time for the pathy!! Loving these Duratracs in the ice and snow.... just beast...

    1. TugboatTony


      It's about time eh budday? The only problem is I'll be on the water.

    2. 1994SEV6


      hows that vg33 in the snow?

    3. Nefarious


      Oh man so nice. I just pulled about 500 miles of driving in the last few days travelling around in over a foot of snow. so epic, i mean really. man its so nice to have some real power in the rig now. i picked up a tow line and hooked it to my rear bumper and was pulling cars up really steep hills and out of ditches for days. so much fun!!!! the house i was staying at is on this crazy steep hill and most trucks could barely make it up and i was towing cars up it!!!...

  10. I have the hottest girlfriend in the world. She just said she wants me to teach her how to work on vehicles... Dream girl, seriously. lol

    4. 1994SEV6


      I don't want to start a war on Toyota or anything, but it seems like ALL their cars have cooling/head gasket issues.

  13. Got my jeep grand cherokee springs today... they measure to 17" on the dot after pigtails were cut... yellow tags... should be a decent amount of lift. :D
