HKS Europe – Big Knowledge Available

As a HKS Distributor we have to work closely with their European staff. One of our customers stripped his Skyline GT-R RB26DETT, which had twin GT30 turbos fitted. He needed to replace all the special gaskets, but we weren’t sure about all the Part No’s. Nathan at HKS Europe quickly came back with all the details, as you can see in the pic. It’s true what they say – together we are stronger – and we’re here to serve!

Next please?!!

Evo Clutch Problems

A potential customer called re clutch problems he has suffered with his Evo. 6 Tommi Makinen Edition – he has had 2 or 3 clutches in his E6 TM car this year (reckons he drove his E4 harder and never had any problems).

Then he fitted an organic or standard clutch himself – not sure if E4~6 230mm or E7~9 240mm and he couldn’t remember what flywheel he fitted, but despite that being OK initially it has now started slipping after just 4 months!
