Any advice for A 31 Cefiro Upgrades?

Postby A31 Cefiro » November 3rd, 2007, 4:41 am

I drive an A31 Cefiro, with an RB20 Enigne and automatic transmission

PROBLEMS:
My car makes alot of squeaky noises in any rough road
The power steering doesn't work
The steering has a bit of play
I've been advised to change all my shocks.
The transmission isn't functioning properly
One of my calipers is leaking brake fluid

I also need some Interior and Exterior work done

I wanna do a complete PERFORMANCE upgrade!
Thinking about changing the entire suspension, brakes and anything else that would bring my car back to the beast it used to be.

Any advice?
Where should I start?

Damnn WTF u does be doing with that car to be run down so? :|

My car makes alot of squeaky noises in any rough road

Suspension need to be redone..Joints, bushings,cradles, grease and shockoil Etc.

The power steering doesn't work

is the pump working? Does it have oil?
u seem to just start and drive for a car to be in that condition

The steering has a bit of play

Check ur steering ends, box & rack...

The transmission isn't functioning properly

what wrong with it? when last u check/changed oil?

One of my calipers is leaking brake fluid

That is definitly NOT SAFE....

are u for real? Do u drive that car?
Get prepared to spend some good $$ :roll:

check urself also :|

I can help u with brakes, got a set of 11" rotors and calipers for ur vehicle. This is 1" bigger than ur stock ones.

Seeing as u have to change a caliper best upgrade onetime.

PM if interested.

No offense but... A31 Cefiro your username should be taken from you if you allowed this car to deteriorate so much. I'm looking for one of these and you just basically took a great car off the road.
Do what Dragsta said, you're on the right track too, don't just bring it back bring it back with some mods. Suspension from S13 or get some OEMs like the Tein. 300ZX or Skyline Brembos if you could afford them...get a new auto tranny or simply do it over with a clutch and stick.
HURRY AND DOO EEEET! :twisted:

Where can I get the OEM's?

What type of gearbox should I use?... What can be done about the E-brake pedal?

I changed the shocks today, but the ones i got are making the ride a lot more bouncy.

What is the condition of the body and paint on the car? Any pics possible? Will you be willing to sell, and if yes, for what price?

No... I'm not selling it. I'm looking to repair it.
I saw at least 6 of these cars for sale in the newspaper today.

Maybe you can check out one of those.

LOL! I can't be vex with you. I did check them out...since last week. 4 Sold already one is waiting to be bought by someone I know and the next one belongs to a police officer that is coming off duty tonight.
You're one bloody lucky fella, these will be remembered as legends someday... in fact they're already highly sort aftter in Asia and some countries, some even liken it to the GTS-T. Good luck and may the boost be with you.

>I got rid of the squeaks by changing a cradle

u should have changed both sides one time...

>No, the pump doesn't work> I got the car like that

once u sure its the pump that is not working, change it, u should get one for abt 1-200$ in d bambooo

>The gears don't change smoothly and from a standstill, it feels like its pulling off in 2nd gear

there is a switch somewhere by the gearshifter console, see if it is in the "HOLD" position, it should be in "AUTO" position...

I always keep it in the AUTO position, or sometimes in the POWER position, but never in the HOLD position.

I don't think thats the problem
