As a previous owner of a tuned Champion Blue R32 GTR, I had the pleasure of reviewing a similar car last week here in Sydney. A very original R32 Silver JDM import with a few V-spec bits but pretty much standard. Many of you will be fully across this, but I thought you all might be enjoy our assessment and real drive, especially those considering buying one. You can let us know what you think in the comments (or of any glaring inaccuracies!).

I got this car in pretty rough shape but it had a running 25 neo, haltech and a specialties engine harness. It didnt run well, awful ecu calibration, blown tomei turbo, a fuel pump flying around the fuel tank and a parasitic drain on the battery. Ive had it for about a 1.5 years now at the time of starting this thread and Ive been thru every part of this car. Ive converted to electric fans, created a few relay circuits to eliminated the battery drain, relocated the battery and this list goes on and on. Its a fun side project so things aren't in a rush and I don't daily drive the car. It sees a few track days but I mostly run my Camaro ss for those. All work is done by me in my garage, even the ECU calibration. The over all paint job was sent to a body shop though.
So current mod list is
Engine-Rb25 neo stock with smoothed exhaust port humps
Tomei MX8265 rebuilt, 3inch side exit, Greddy FMIC, Haltech platinum,Tomei timing belt, Denso 550cc, zerofab fuel rail, DW400 pump, unknown IM and 90mm TB, grimmspeed boost controller, Ebay radiator,hks cap, mishimoto fans, Spec stage 2+ clutch, 12lb flywheel
Chassis- S15 Helical LSD, delrin subframe bushings, spherical rear tie rods and rucas, KBee coilovers altered spring rates, 300zx calipers, powerstop trackday pads, steel lines, Impul R5 wheels, 255/40r17 R888r, corner balanced, half stripped interior r32 gtr seats, personal steering wheel, gktech shifter springs and brass collar, poly steering rack bushings, spherical tension rods, s13 rear sway bar
Seized and rusted ISR coilovers that came with the car had to be cut off the front stud
Clutch fan failure is the reason I went electric
Then on to body work, dent repair and deleting the type M wing and making holes for the GTR wing
The used Kbee coilovers needed new bushings but I cant get in touch with them so I fitted some VW bus sway bar bushings into them haha
nasty sound deading removal with dry ice
Align and balance, thats the before weights
Stock turbo dyno 248whp at 14psi
The following items came off my BNR34 running twin -5’s 350 kw on pump and are all in good nick.
happy to post at buyers expense. All items located in parramatta area NSW pick up welcome.
Rb26 Tomei Type C double valve springs and retainers. I've gone to a shimless setup and the machine shop prefer to use there own custom spring setup hence the sale. Chasing $ 500 ono. these are are awesome springs they have a 242 lbs open pressure when you do the conversion from KGF and around 70 lb seat pressure. I dont think they are available anymore from tomei. the retainers are chrome molly and im told the outer springs are the same at the type B.
