My question is this=== are they really any good, Ratios etc Any good in a patrol behind the LS1 etc ??. FYI---Wholesale autos are doing this box as an option.
    I personally have no idea Robo mate but it sounds tops! The Nissan 5.6 petrol beast and its tranny kept together would make one hell of a transplant though :-) !

    RE5R05A is not the oem for the LS engine ( not that I know of any ways) it's a nissan gen oem tranny out of other nissan skyline & titan cars, but can be mated up to tb td ls engines via a kit.
    IF IT'S NOT A NISSAN.
    THEN IT'S A COMPROMISE

    MB, I checked the specs on the thermostat i have from BD as a spare and its a 82degC unit. Sorry, this has been bugging me! And it matches the unit i got on ebay, which was an AC DELCO. BD stock tridon, part number TT2000-180 Hi Flow

    G'day Phil, I'm by no means an expert on these donks sorry mate, just learning my way through them too to make mine hopefully bulletproof. Here is the page photo again from the US military full maintenance download that was posted years ago here.
    ACDelco do make several different TS ranges but the yank forums seemed to recommend the 131-103 88Ds which is what I received.

    Oil coolers turned up today. Can't complain about the service from the ebay mob being the only stockists in the country I could find. Ordered Friday delivered Monday! Dropped them off to Mill for final fitting and collected whilst in Mansfield some ISO type small exhaust mounts. 'K&M Onsite Auto Electrics' in Mansfield are great blokes and stock a hell of a lot of gear contrary to their biz name, highly recommended !!

    I hope you have saved the pennies to hook these up - my hydraulic winch hoses cost me a kidney and an ear lobe - horrendously expensive those fittings and hoses.

    Depends who you use. The likes of enzed, pirtek etc are very pricey. I have offered others here advice and assistance with this gear as its what I do. You be surprised how much the hose and ends are really worth.

    I am struggling on what I hope is one last issue please Mat. The Serck coolers are British/Aussie BSB 1/2" to match my existing as WA bought setup. The 'Derale' oil thermostat/fluid control coming is yanky 1/2" NPT. At some stage on the lines from BSB to NPT threads I need to change forward/back threads twice if that makes sense? Question I guess is are there 1/2"BSB<>1/2"NPT unions in Aus or just have to get em turned up custom? Cheers in advance!

    I will put this here as well. 1/2" npt and bspt are the same thread at 14tpi. This means they should be able to be used in each others threads.
