Got my eye on something with chrome bumpers so am looking to sell my 1996 R33 Skyline GTST.
It's not your typical ebay built R33 shitter. Has had money spent on it and is very solid, it's a ball to drive and if I had the room I would keep it.

Shell and paint is in relatively good nic for it's age.
Everything works (power windows, mirrors, etc. AC is ice cold).
Goes hard, sounds grouse, brakes and gets around corners very well. The ATS diff is sublime.
Gearbox is noisy and if shifting flat out it notches at high rpm going 3rd to 4th.
Rear drivers pod has a crack.
Cold start tune is fine during summer but is hard going <10 degrees.
Rego's expired, if you want Vic rego can put you in touch with a few guys who can help.
$15k ono. Doesn't come with RPF1s/Hankook RS4s, but if you're really keen on them we can sort something out. All and any inspections, tests welcome. 0447 738 908
In the golden age of now, it is more than obvious that the BCNR33 is the ultimate race-bred chassis out of the lineage.
Whilst the BNR34 commands a higher price, the reality is upon its debut in Super Taikyu racing it quickly fell behind and was then replaced by the faster older BCNR33 chassis'.
The design & wheelbase of the BCNR33 relates to it's superlative & brutal performance. This reality meant Nissan focused on 'improving control at the limit' for the BNR34, to help the everyday driver which essentially made it a slower car and why a new Nurburgring lap time was never set.
Not only did the BCNR33 make history at the Nurburgring, it terrorised Le Mans knocking coming in 5th in Class & 10th overall. We all know how restricted the R33 was in both of these events, so the fact it left 911's, NSX's, F40's and Mclaren F1's behind is simply amazing.
As we all know, by now most BCNR33's have fell victim to accident damage &/or structural rust particularly in Japan & the UK. Just about every example I looked at in Japan in Grade 4 condition had structural rust through seams and on the underbody. For a long time they were swept under the rug and unappreciated, so this is no suprise.
Thus it's important that for those of us with an immaculate example - to come here to the thread, drink a coffee, post pictures & discuss just how great the BCNR33 really is.
If we ever decide to sell (which is highly unlikely due to our sentimental attachment to a 'rare breed') anyone from overseas looking will be able to find us.
I am new here. This is a great site. I have an R33 GTR Vspec. I replaced my cracked stock rad and fan with a Mishomoto rad and fan shroud. The car did not overheat with the stock rad but did with the Mishimoto. We tried cutting out the fan shroud so that the aircon fan could blow through the rad but the car would still overheat even at idle on a 25 deg day. We switched back to a factory fan and overheating is gone. But now I notice coolant on the top of the rad and it seems to be pushing through the Mishimoto rad cap on hot days. Looking at the setup I can't see how the coolant overflow bottle can work, as the overflow hole is above the point where the cap seals, see below photo. So it seems like the coolant is heating up, expanding and then has nowhere to go except past the cap seal. You can see the red coolant on the top of the rad. I can't remember if the setup is the same on the stock rad. Can someone with a stock rad check for me? I also noticed that the coolant was boiling in the hoses today, which was 30+ deg. Is this normal? Any advice is appreciated.
Welcome. Welcome one welcome all - to partz for sells. Can post auswide, pm for costs.
First - Nismo adjustable fuel pressure regulator. Fairly new, and in good working order. I know this for fact, cos i'm still currently using it, but won't fit my new fuel rail so...
GK Tech poly subframe bushes. These are BRAND NEW - didn't even make it to the garage, and are still in the box. Bought them to address roll centre correction but achieved the same by cutting the top off the whiteline bushes I already had installed so didn't use these. My loss, yo gain. Fits a number of vehicles; details here on the GK Tech website - https://au.gktech.com/polyurethane-rear-subframe-bushes
Apexi SAFC NEO. In excellent working order and worked well for me, but now have a standalone ecu. In good working order as pics show. Has a strip of thermotape across the top (protect it from being roasted when parked in sun) - not an issue, but to mention it for detail of condition. Other than that, bloody choice bruv.
