  • Fitting Drift Pineapples

    Hey guys,

    Well me and my mate where going to have a crack last night at doing my drift pineapples..but when we got into it we relised there are six subframe bolts and we only had four pineapples that would fit we rekon..where still not 100% sure these pineapples will fit as there desingned for a Z30 soarer, so im kinda the test dummy for otomoto to see if they fit...

    my mate who is doing them has done them on his s14 but he used the metal ones and apparantly they go on either side for a nissan..

    loonie has told me before how to do them but the instructions i gave my mate from him didnt give him enough detail..

    what i was after was a step by step guide on how to install them...and if they fit ill take all the pics and that necessary so then other people can start purchasing..if they dont fit..then you'll know not to spend your money..


    Cheers Deano

        You only need 2 pineapples. Not 6.

        You are not solid mounting the subframe, if you were you'd use alloy spacers like Nissans do, and you don't need to because the subframe design is infinitely superior.

        You take your two tasty pineapples, you loosen the 4 front subframe mounting bolts, you then undo the two rear subframe mounting nuts while supporting the subrame with a jack (naturally the car is up on jackstands at this point).

        You then lower the subframe on the jack enough to slip the pineapples between the top surface of the subframe itself and the upper mounting plate that rests on top of it. You then jack the subframe back up and do up the 2 rear subframe nuts as well as the 4 front subframe bolts.

        You then promptly go out and enjoy the horribly abundant lack of traction you may now experience

        When you get home again, you look in the mirror and repeat "I am a dumbass and I should have listened to Looonie the first time he told me all this" and promptly send a set of adjustable arms to the nice person in NZ *cough* :P

              about half way down this page for dift pinapples
              Half of the GTR's power comes from boost and not torque.

                        did you end up fitting them? was there much of a difference? how are they ajustable for less grip???

                              where could i get these? and they go in the differential inserts right?

                              is it the same than changing the whole 6 bushings? im looking to comp in drifting

                              would this mod put a lot of stress on the chassis? or would the 6 subframe bushings be worseż

                              thanks!

                              ive found these on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Spoon-Sports...53.m1438.l2649

                              anybody has any experience with similar stuff?
