I’ve done a search and couldn’t find anything on this specific topic.
On startup I have this weird buzzing sound from the rear of the car which goes away in about 10 seconds.
It’s definitely not the fuel pump. Sounds like something 4WD or HICAS related pressurising? It can be heard intermittently for about 2 seconds every 30 seconds or so after the first “prime”.
Is it a normal V-Spec thing, or am I losing pressure somewhere?
Hope someone can shine some light on this.
For Sale: 1999 Nissan Skyline R34 GTR Vspec

The car has roughly 94,000kms on chassis and roughly 30,000km on the engine (was replaced by previous owner before I purchased car)
I have auction records and de registration papers from Japan, it was auction grade 4.5 with 52,000km on the nismo odometer.
I've owned the car for 10 years and only had to service and replace turbo's and the radiator, everything else was done by previous owner aside from wheels and bonnet which I changed.

So i've had a number of skylines over the last 5 years, since getting my first one in 2014.
A number of R33 drift cars, a R32 drift car in japan @ ebisu circuit (for sale atm if anyone is keen :D), my original green 32 which I've built up over the last 5 years to a 500hp rb25 neo street weapon (this is also for sale...)
With the rising prices of GTR's these last few years..I thought I would never be able to afford a proper GTR without selling everything I own haha. I recently came across someone with a bare non rolling R32 GTR shell which luckily had not been posted for sale online.
Luckily over the years, I have amassed quite a number of GTR body parts.
The plan is to pretty well fully rebuild the car with as much new items as possible (while not going crazy over the top).
This will take me a long time, but I hope to keep these page updated (unlike my first build post haha).
It's been a while, I am a Kiwi who moved over to Japan a few years back and have settled in Tokyo.
I have always loved the R32, have owned a couple of GTST's before and since I am in Japan now, decided to go for gold and score the best possible BNR32 I can get my hands on.
The car arrived on a truck a few days back and gotta say, as it is my dream car, no words can explain my joy at the moment,
Nismo and Nissan have been on the ball resupplying the parts for the R32, and I have no shortage of parts supply if something needs attention for now... I guess that is one of the advantages of living here,
During the whole purchasing ordeal, there has been a lot of processes involved and Japan in my opinion, has their way of doing things, so no let's wing it attitude sits in well with these folks lol.
It took a couple of weeks to get the Japanese version of WOF called "Shaken" but overall, besides the RIDICULOUS parking costs, all was pretty smooth.
I miss NZ where you can just park on your own driveway, In Tokyo, you will be doing well if you find one below $300 per month.
Now Let's Talk about the car,
Pretty standard, nothing in the engines has been touched, currently tuned to 380ps.

Cooling: ARC intercooler, HKS IC piping kit,
Intake: ARC Super Induction box
Exhaust: Apex front pipe, Apex RS muffler,
Suspension / Drivetrain: HKS reinforced clutch (I think it's a twin push type early model, absolute B**itch to drive in in traffic, real narrow biting point and very sensitive), Ohlins suspension, Tein pillow ball tension rod
Brakes: Winmax brake pads
Electrical: HKS EVC5, Tomei Speedometer, Trust gauges in the glovebox, Defi Boost gauge on Steering wheel column Will provide pics soon
Interior: Nismo seat covers, Italvolanti steering wheel
Wheel: Volkracing CE28N 8.5X17 +22 ,
Tires: Dunlop Direzza Z3 255-40-17
I may have missed something but this is the current status of the car.
I don't plan to go tracking but want to escape the city on the weekends to explore the less populated areas of Japan, I will probably be on the sensible side when it comes to driving on foreign lands.
I absolutely love the car after taking it out on the highway, it was an absolute pleasure to dive, the sound, the pull everything was better than I hoped.
I should be posting the slight issue on another section but as I have your attention, I wished to ask you guys quickly.
On the way back, from the very awesome drive, some car far ahead had an accident in the tunnel and I ended up being stuck in heavy traffic, I have a clutch setup which seems to be one of the worst most sensitive (only on 1st year, either from standstill, or rolling very slowly), unforgiving setups I have ever driven, NOT fun stuck in traffic jam for an hour,
If you guys have any suggestions for a street usable/friendly clutch ideas, please feel free to let me now, something that does not give you a dead leg even if you are stuck behind traffic, and something that allows a smoother start on 1st gear, right now, I have to give it gas about 2-3000rpm and release the clutch very very gently or the ting just tries to launch and hop etc.
I have heard the Nismo twin plate? ones were good, but not sure it will be better than my old HKS setup and in what way, my one feels very sensitive (narrow biting point if that makes sense) they can be a pain to drive in traffic etc..
Thank you for reading my post and I wish to catch up with any GTR owners based in Tokyo! hit me up if you are around.
